Jay Mohr

Episode 19: Jay Mohr thinks Teresa just cookbooked herself out of the circle.

on Oct 10, 20110

The episode opens at Melissa's house, where she is putting together outfits with her stylist. The stylist must be very good at her job, because she has convinced Melissa to walk around her house in leather pants with corsets in the back. Melissa is also wearing Barbara Eden's top from her I Dream of Jeannie days. I don't think it fits her, because during the scene she plays with her boobs constantly. Let's get back to Melissa's leather corset pants. She's like New Jersey's Scarlett O'Hara. I like to imagine Hattie McDaniel pulling her into them and Melissa yelling, "Tighter! Tighter! Ashley Wilkes is coming over!" Melissa also says that she's scared that her boob might pop out. Um, Melissa, there's a new product on the market and it's called a bra.

The phone rings and it's Teresa. Melissa and Teresa both have bedazzled phones, and as it turns out, they also have the same stylist. This becomes a bit of controversy, because the stylist tells Melissa that Teresa has forbidden her from working with Melissa. It seems that working with Melissa and Teresa at the same time would be the world's easiest stylist job. They essentially dress the same. No matter what the occasion or how much prep time they are given, they both always leave the house dressed like a gypsy. A fun Clubhouse game would be to match the face to the outfits.

Editor's Note: Speaking of Clubhouse fun, enjoy Melissa's new music video:

Jay, I don't know why you are even here. I don't care what you think and Andy Cohen is just so cute, but he is becoming mean and I wish he would stop. Andy, stop showing favorites on the HWNJ. It is not becoming, you are the host. I don't know why I am writing this. I need a life.

I couldn't have said it better myself! I agree with you If any of those other women have had to go through what Teresa has been through, they would have crumbled, hid behind closed doors and best of all run out of the reunion show! To the host, you know first hand what Teresa had been through but yet you still gave her hell, shame on you! 4 on 1, come on bravo how fair! Teresa keep standing strong and keep that beautiful smile on your face! The others are so jealous of your strength and will be survive anything! 100% Teresa Supporter!!!!!!!!

Say it ain't so Jay, is it true you had dinner with the Manzos? You lose status, in my book, by hanging out with the people you are blogging about. We want an objective observer spoofing these crazies (and no one should be above spoofing, they did it to themselves by agreeing to be part of the show).

I have to comment on this one. Teresa has had some bad experiences with the media broadcasting her financial situation and it had to be very embarassing for her. Yet, she held her head high and faced it head on. She did not hide under her bed, lock herself in the house to where she didn't have to face anyone, nor did she show the humiliation that she was going through. I don't think there is one cast member that could have done it and several of them admitted they could not have done it. Now, after going through all that mess she is attacked on the reunion show not just by 3 other cast members but the host of the show as well and what did Teresa do????? She did not run from any of the accusations that these 4 people threw at her....NO she did not, but, what she did do is stare Caroline in the face and said "BRING IT"!! She has had to defend herself over and over again. The TRUTH is it all started at the Christianing when Aunt Teresa was dancing with her nephew and something was said bad about that! The comments were hateful and meant to hurt Teresa, as if that wasn't enough, Teresa tells her brother Congratulations and her brother turned on her like white on rice calling her a piece of garbage. I can't even imagine the pain she felt. It doesn't end for Teresa there because everyone was talking about Teresa behind her back and Teresa saw it with her own eyes! The pain she must have felt. Even after all this Teresa stood her ground on the reunion show and that is what I call one hell of a strong woman!!!! She refused to allow those women and the host of the show attack her without putting up one hell of a fight. So, I say, Theresa, you go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can honestly say, "what goes around comes around." Teresa has angered all of her friends and family that they finally had enough of her lies and fakeness. I commend the ladies for acting like ladies. I myself am a lady, however, I would of acted like a truck driver with a bad potty mouth! It bothers me how someone can treat people so mean and expect them not to get upset. And the worst part of the whole thing is I believe she is a little mentally sick because she denies all of her back stabbings doings. She is cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo.....to say the least. Looking forward to your take on the reunion.

Andy was rude to Teresa??? How would she know? She doesn't listen to anyone. She's too busy making up lies to protect herself from everyone that's had a butt full of her antics. And Jay? Blog about the reunion shows, PLEASE!!!

Hey Jay, loved your performance on Watch What Happens Live! I especially loved when Andy asked you if he was mean (or hard) on Teresa on the reunion and you changed the subject, LOL...that was sooo funny. That was no reunion special it was let's interogate Teresa Show! I'm very very surprised with Andy!

I saw you on WWHL and thought you were HILARIOUS. I never knew about your blog but I spent most of my afternoon working my way through it yesterday, laughing the whole way. This season was insane and you really called people out, with wit and charm. I love how you are not afraid to declare your boy-crushed on Joey Gorga, and my god I could not agree with you more about Sassy Gay Best Friend Greg - I would watch a whole show about Greg. I love him.

Caroline wrote in her blog on Bravo RHONJ (May 26, 2009 ): “Teresa is the modern day Lucille Ball. She is an absolute riot. I always laugh when she is around.”

JAY,

READ CAROLINE MANZO'S BLOG FOR MAY 26, 2000. (BRAVO BLOG)

CAROLINE CLEARLY SAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE

TERESA IS THE MODERN DAY LUCILLE BALL.

I LOVE U! You are hilarious, always have been and seems u may be getting even more funny... Don't get rid of ANYONE! Keep 'em all on there, KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHTING LADIES! Hang tough, screw her! (by her, I mean any of them at any time of the day in every situation) I think all RHNJ needs is Tamra from CA and Bethenny NY to move into their neighborhood and sprinkle all of their wit and sarcasm all over the pretty ladies... Hahaha, that would be AWESOME! Can't wait until part deux of the reunion!

I think the show should not promote Ashley's behavior anymore. She thinks she is a star. Someday she is going to grow up and be very embarassed of herself. We can only hope...

Hi Jay, I think you would be an excellent Regis replacement on Regis and Kelly too! You are so funny and equally poke fun at all the housewives. However, I did feel like you were taking sides against Teresa when you were on Andy's show. You tried so hard not to but you came across as biased. It just terrible to see Teresa get kicked when Caroline, Kathy and Melissa were beating her up on the reunion show.

WE LOVE YOU JAY! You are so spot-on about everyone! I can't believe how funny you are! I wish they would feature you on every WWHL! You are the BEST! Teresa should be ashamed of herself looking back on this season and the reunion. She is so self absorbed, and evades the truth constantly. Way to go Jay!

Wow-Caroline Man-zo and kids/Adults need to take her advice-put on your BIG GIRL PANTIES.... lol. Teresa against the three-she held her own. Btw i thought MAMA MAN-zo called T -Lucille Ball. Love your blog but don't hang with the cast before writing your blog-just sayn. lol. Maybe Caroline is mad because her "husband" got into trouble to the "law" too. Who knows. P.s. Andy get rid of Kathy and the Man-zos- they are bor-----ring!!!!!!!!! Jay: All in all i look forward to reading and laughing over your blogs.

Jay: Love your blog, but you are missing a few key ingredientzse. If you recall in previous seasons, Caroline layed down the law by telling everyone, especially Jacqueline, that she couldn't hang out with Danielle or else.... Caroline is a hypocrite and a backstabber and has now partnered up with Melissa and Kathy against Teresa. You seem to think Melissa and Kathy are little angels, when they are not. They are backstabbers too and insult Teresa any chance they get. Don't you watch the show? And I absolutely believe that Melissa made that comment about "not being stupid like her sisters." When she saw Joe Gorga's house she "jumped on it." Teresa has always said that comment was made and I believe her. I think Caroline, Kathy and Melissa are all fake snakes.

Enjoyed you very much on WWHLw/Andy as I always do but I have to say you came off as a bit disingenuous about why you bash Ashley and not Teresa. Could it be you are afraid of finding a beloved pets or friends head in your bed if you dis on T? ...LOL...(I don't blame you...teehee) Now THAT's what you call a joke Teresa.....

This reunion show part 1 was beyond awkward and hard to watch. It's crazy to see what television does to people. I honestly couldn't even finish watching it. When Andy made the snide comment '...clean as a whistle?' is when I turned it off. When the 'host' of the show starts joining in on the bashing of a cast member that's when it gets a little ridiculous don't you think? So is Andy going to be the new RHNJ cast member?!?! That would only make sense right? So sadly enough another show gets ruined for me. Thank you Bravo for crossing the line exploiting a family waaaay beyond repair and just continuously making tasteless television altogether. The last hope for the show would be to get rid of the whole cast and start from square one. (Preferably a new NEUTRAL host as well) This current cast are just a bunch old dried up bitches! Let's see: Teresa, watch an episode from season 1 and watch any episode from season 3 and tell me you changed ...in a good way? Melissa, a bunch of things just start rushing through my head. Um.... Hypocrite, self centered, faithLESS, and i could just go on. Basically read the Book you live by... it might teach you a few things on self respect and how to respect your neighbor. Kathy, what are you doing? you're old as shit, why don't you take up knitting if you want to do something w/ the years you have left. You try too much to get in the drama because you don't have any. STOP IT! Jacqueline, to be honest you're the only one i can't really say anything about. You're beautiful you never give up trying to push your difficult daughter. You never speak ill of anyone unless it's brought up in a conversation. You're the only one who doesn't get in the drama. I guess the ONLY thing i can say is when you're arguing with someone and you turn away from them you do this head turn thing... its not cute. Caroline, ooooh Caroline. How you disappointed me... At first I did admire you're opinionated attitude. But this season you came off really catty. Especially at the reunion being buddy buddy with Melissa and Kathy. It's disgusting you would even partake in clucking with the chickens. Just taking a side puts yourself in the drama and that's what you become, DRAMA. Well I've vented. This is my first and last time commenting on a blog. That is how upset I was from that reunion show. So I wont be watching part 2, sadly this show is no longer on my DVR. See ya later Bravo.

Jay your blog posts on RHONJ was so funny and on point it's amazing. Anyway people are questioning Caroline's reaction to Teresa at the reunion. 411- It's not really about the book. The book was the sprinkles on the icing of the cake. Strangely enough it's because of the similar gripes that Joe Gorga had with his sister at the start of season 3. Supposedly it's about how Teresa has changed because of the show and her celebrity. And when she found out her cousin and sister-in-law were going to be on the show kind of was the catalyst for Teresa's behavior as the filming progressed. Now the Manzo's did make all kinds of jokes at the expense of Teresa behind her back and that wasn't cool but even then Caroline always made it a point to put Teresa as someone who despite having problems (see bankruptcy, family issues) has a good heart. Until of course it became clear to Caroline by Teresa's actions off camera, that Teresa didn't seem sincere when it came to her relationships with her brother, sister-in-law, and cousin. I think what came to Caroline was "If she could be like this with her own family, how are we supposed feel about her relationship with us?" And I see Caroline as giving someone benefit of the doubt until something happens that confirms the negative. And unfortunately that happened. It's not clear what that was and maybe Caroline will clarify it better in the 2nd part of the reunion because from Teresa's reaction I'm not sure if Teresa herself really knows what set her off (she probably assumed it was the book like most watching the finale).

Jay you did a great job with your blog on here.. Very challenging at times for sure. Teresa I agree has become a very sad and pathetic character on the show. Her insults continue no matter what anyone tries to explain to her. She is in a world of her own. Very sad she felt it necessary to insult people in her cookbook. She could have written a small paperback on all that stuff.. Her behavior on the vacation modelling her outrageous outfits was really wierd and awful to watch then more insults. She has a problem listening to what others have to say. It's not even selective hearing..She is disturbed and anyone can see it is affecting her children alot. Very sad situation ..

Jay...what will I do without you? I will miss the laughs you give me with each episode. I hope you will return next season. ok..I love you said about Ashley, couldn't agree more. I love what you said about threasa and her Lucille ball reference..too funny. I am getting sick of carolines "holier-than- thou" Attitude. Who named her the "godfather"? It was so sad to watch this season as the guidices unraveled under their enormous debt. Talk about living above your means!

Love your blogs Jay!!!!! Just watched u on Watch What Happens Live and the After Show...funny as always. Great job doing On Display- better than Melissa...haha! Suggestion for you- definitely go out and read Teresa's cookbook. Believe me, the "insults" are not that insulting when they are NOT being taken out of context. It came across much worse on the show than the way it was written in the book. When you read the whole paragraph or the whole chapter- you can see she wasn't really bashing anyone in the book. The worst thing she said was about her baby sister in law copying her- that was probably the most insulting. The stuff about Caroline- not insulting at all..the stuff about the stripper car wash- also not insulting. Let's remember one thing here too- Christopher never actually opened a stripper car wash...it was just a 2 second idea he shared on the show once. He didn't have any personal claim in it, so why Caroline would think that Teresa was going after her son is ridiculous. Trust me Jay- go out and read the book- you'll see for yourself...Teresa did not do anything wrong in it. Let's also not forget- Kathy said that intelligence is another language to Teresa right...but then defended herself by saying it was just a joke. I don't know about you- but calling someone stupid is a bit more insutling and a lot less funny than calling someone 1/16th italian- don't you think?

Good insights Jay Mohr, but if you look back to season 2's blogs to Teresa, after Danielle was fired...err not asked back....people warned her Caroline Manzo would go after her and look what has happened!! Teresa wasn't the victim, but Caroline was probably bored and decided she was done with Teresa and so...poof attack Teresa time!! Just sayin.....

Teresa, her husband and her children are so much better off out of the circle. It was three against one on the reunion show......The 2011 cast was a producers dream...I will not be watching next year.......Good luck Teresa.

Thank you for bringing some sanity to this craziness. Loved you on Watch What Happens. I am so glad you could see Teresa for who she is. Some of these people have no clue. She was the joke this season.
