At Teresa’s house, G to the ia is sick as a dog and the poor girl is puking her guts out. For some strange, strange reason, Teresa insists on taking her photo moments after she vomits. Gia even says, “Right after I puked?” and Teresa says yes and the flash goes off. Gia flashes a huge smile and quickly goes back to being miserable, which makes me believe she has a big show business career ahead of her.
That night the Manzos all pile into a limo and head into Manhattan to see Alexa Rae Joel in concert at The Oak Room. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as an Alexa Rae Joel concert, but I stand very, very corrected. She is amazing. In her promotional poster she looks like Whitney Port. This is a good thing, because she used to have her father’s looks and her mother’s talent. Now the tables have turned and she is an amazingly talented singer. Albie is head over heels in love with Alexa and when he is near her he loses the ability to speak. At one point in the evening when Alexa is sitting with the family shortly before she goes on stage, Albie tells Alexa that he should order her a glass of milk because she is older than him. It’s a classic RHONJ moment when the entire family looks over at him as if to say, “What the hell is wrong with you?” Alexa Rae Joel hits the stage and sings ‘All I Know How to Do is Love.’ I spent the next hour or so looking for her stuff on YouTube because of how great she was. I wrote a similar song this year called, ‘All I Know How to Do is Love Joey Gorga.’ It seems like a pretty successful night for everyone except for mumble mouthed Albie. Christie Brinkley is there. Billy Joel is not there. Maybe he was busy getting his car out of someone’s living room.
