Episode 15: Jay Mohr isn't too sure what was in those hookahs.
Posted by Jay Mohron Aug 29, 20110
At Teresa's book signing we see a nice turn out. Her book is called 'Skinny Italian,' and it's a New York Times best seller. When is someone going to grow a pair and write the "Big Fat Slob Italian Cookbook"? That's the cookbook I would buy.
Joey and Melissa come by the book signing late. Like, 8:30 for a 5:30 book signing late. I guess it's fitting that they have the place to themselves for some dramatic family talk. For a moment, the cameras caught Joey Gorga with his guard down and he yells to the storeowner, "That's my big sister!" You can see how proud he is of Teresa. The happiness then turns to anger, and it gets a little creepy. Joey instructs Teresa to go home and tell her husband to stop threatening him. Teresa says, "He's not threatening you," to which all of America shouted, "Show her your texts!" at their televisions. The argument gets briefly sidetracked by some Facebook nonsense, but Joey tells Teresa several times, "Tell your husband to stop threatening me!"
I agree with what has been said here many times--you should write a blog for all the shows. O.K. I guess that would be too much but you could alternate and do the New Jersey people one week and some other housewives show another, even if you had to review old episode. The housewives are getting boring, same ole, same ole--mean girls fighting about nothing, I start to watch and then turn them off. All these shows are the same. Your blog is the only good thing about them.
Jay I like most people that read your blogs find them to be very very funny and I of course laugh just like everyone else, but seriously it seems like you really have a big dislike for Melissa, we know and WE GET IT but you just continue to beat this dead horse to death now your working on it ghost. People can read and yes WE ALL KNOW you don't like her song once again your going to work on that dead horse isn't it dead enough?
And one more thing, I don't believe she told you to write anything bad about Teresa she simply asked why your passing judgement on her ventures and not others ventures like Teresa's books of family recipes and when I say family they weren't created by her, your smart enough to surely be able to see this. She was not telling you to say bad things about Teresa or anything that she's done and you come out and say she did, I hope that your kind enough to set the record straight on Twitter, now I don't have Twitter or twater of or use any of those outlets but I did read what was said, and she never told you to write anything nasty about Teresa she asked why you always chose to make a few very hurtful remarks and it's so rare that you beat down anyone else. I don't think anyone is giving her a change and as far as her fans go I don't know what show that are watching to make some of the dumbest statements they make and yes, I did go there...
You said in Twitter that you did haven't nice things about Teresa really? I went back and read your blogs and um I believe you said you freakin love Teresa, all I'm saying is Jesus stop boarding the hate train. And Jay yes I know that they put themselves out there and people will judge, I just can't for the life of me figure out the coldness of the remarks about Melissa we don't even know her that well.. Let me say this, when it comes to Gia who I totally adore and the sadness and hurt she feels because she wants him in her life so bad and he wants the same thing that child is saying a lot and if you really watched that scene the things that can't be disputed is her uncle went straight to her to hug her and stayed up there so she could finish that sweet but sad song that she herself wrote, she has nothing but love for this child his Godchild and Melissa picked her up and held her kissed her and told Gia she loved her and she had tears in her eyes. Sorry but I didn't see Teresa that upset not as much as her brother and Melissa where she's trying to calm her down . It was upsetting to watch It's been Melissa that's reached out to Teresa about the play dates with the kids, not Teresa, Melissa has found
Say what you want about Joey Gorga but that man shows a lot of love towads Gia as well as the other , I bring this up because Teresa and her her
Oh and by the way Teresa Joe's talks about her brother being short, like I have to say Juicy joes isn't even a head taller he's kind 1 and 3/4 inches on it that and he acts like his 6 foot tall un he's not.
My hubby hates reality shows but watches them with me in bed cause I said so! We didnt get the show here in Canada till last week, but i have to say your blog made us both wondering what the heck!?! I read your blog to him when he is watching something I dont like, ahaha(we have been together 25 yrs married 21) he enjoys your take . Now that the shows are airing here we go and read your blog lol gotta say keeps us chuckling.
Usually I pretty much agree with your point of view, but in this case, I have to part company with regard to Melissa vs Countless and their songs. Luella cannot sing a note, and I think Melissa has a pretty singing voice. I also like the content of Melissa's song better than Miss Haughty's "Money can't buy you class" nonsense song that would do her some good to listen to. Otherwise, right on Jay.
HILARIOUS. I don't need to watch this show I just read your blog. Less painful and funnier. But I have to ask about this part of your blog: Richie is really ready to hit the town. He's wearing a suit jacket, his shirt is unbuttoned to his naval, and he's sloppily gripping a glass of scotch. NAVAL is there something you're not telling us about Ritchie....Navel...Naval dealing with the navy...In the NAVY....YMCA. I did like your lame joke I laughed!
TO BE HONEST I CAME TO YOUR BLOG TO TAKE A GLANCE AT IT. BUT YOU ARE SOOOOO FUNNY I COULDN'T STOP READING! I'M DEFINATELY FOLLOWING YOUR BLOG FROM NOW ON! LOVE IT!
WHY DONT U HAVE YOUR OWN SHOW? COME ON BRAVO!!!!!! DO SOMETHING!
Love Love your blog!!! You have such a wonderful way of seeing the humor that is needed in this show. Just a note jay, I'm very worried about Teresa. She looks like she is being pushed hard.My heart was broken for her when she had to read what she had signed in the book for her brother.
Her husband Joey Giudice mental heath is right out of "One flew over the cuckoos nest". Very scary!!!!!!
I don't watch much reality tv,but I am hooked on the RHONJ. You make it even funnier. But I have to say that I feel sorry for Ashley. I think she has potential, but no one is listening to her. Instead they gang up on her in a public place and expect her to say something intelligent. Very intimidating and very wrong of them. That's all I have to say.
Love you Jay ! How does anyone not know you ? I'm becoming tired of the shenanigans of some of theses women but I still find the show amusing! We watch with our own commentary . it makes it more fun . Can't wait for the finale already!
Great job on the post. I feel let down by the other cast mate. If they have time to Twitter then they have time to write a one page blog. For the fans that made them, w/o us no one would truly care or know their name. Bravo should get on them about it. Especially in the wake of all the negative they are receiving from there other show.
Some of you keep saying that Rosie is great, but, we don't even know her personality. We have never heard her speak a word. She is like a fixture. She is always off to the side and not sitting with her family or at least they don't show her with her family, except in the kitchen at Kathy's house.
After having read and loved your blog all this season, I now watch the show with what I imagine to be your forthcoming commentary running through my head..........sort of like a Greek chorus.
Love you Jay, thanks for blogging and keeping us entertained.
Andy should deduct money from the others (since they didn't blog this week) and give it to you as a bonus, as you carried the whole show on-line this week.
I've completely stopped watching the show because RHONJ sucks the living energy out of me so bad, I'm in recovery the entire week. Reading your reviews provides all the laughs without the awkwardness and loss of my oh-so-needed life force.
Kudos! and Thanks!
I'm an LA transplant from North Jersey myself. Love the show and your blog is genius. Favorite line was the one about Caroline showing up with her hair slicked back like Mickey Rourke in "Angel Heart." Gotta love Teresa and Joe. What a great idea to have your kids do gymnastics on a marble floor with a 3 x 6 foot mat. And how does Teresa "ingredientzes" Giudice not only get to write a book but then be late for her own book signing and not even bother to apologize to fans?
Joey Gorga and Mellissa were so humiliating to Theresa at her book signing.I hope she doesn't invite them again.How can she read out loud to her wuss bro when she's so choked up with emotion?The RHONJ aren't even in New Jersey right now.They are in CA promoting Housewives Live.The reason no housewives have posted a blog is because Mellisa ,Jaqueline or Kathy wait for Theresa's blog so they can trash her every word(BTW she's busy working to support her family).Too bad it's not just because they are ashamed of their behavior.Heaven forbid,Thank you Jesus!
still don't get it???
-complain about not being invited?begged to com to Teresa's events basically to be share the spotlight with her but then complain that she braggs on Joey too much as it puts him in competition with Joe.??
-insisted Teresa and wifey meet to squash any beef but insisted Teresa be his mouthpiece and talk to Joe about his.???
-just reamed Ashley out for being irresponsible, disrespectful spoiled brat yet contemplating about taking her to Punta Cana.??? errrr
-why I loved Teresa's Grimace coat!!???
OMG, my entire body is hurting from laughter! You are so funny and right on point with your blogs! Tears are coming from my eyes. I love how you say exactly what everyone thinks, but in a way that is so freaking hilarious! Love ya man!
I have friends that live 5 miles from Franklin Lakes, while it did storm and the winds were strong, they never lost power. So, why no blogs from the housewives? It isn't the weather that's preventing them from blogging, they can't put a "spin" on the behavior of last week. How will Teresa explain Joe's drunken rant? How will Melissa explain being 3 hours late for the signing, and Joey's token hug to his sister? Along with the humiliation? I'll bet Kathy and Rich loved their kids seeing them swap spit on national TV. Don't these people realize they're on TV, how they act and what they say are here forever?
They're aren't enough "spin doctor's" in the world to turn this around. They embarrass Italians, women, and most of all mother's. But yet, I can't stop watching the "car accident". Your blog is the best part of the housewives. If you blogged for the other shows, I'd watch them.
PS-Rosie is great, she reminds me of that man from "Fiddler on the Roof".
Agree with MN fan. Your Blog is laugh out loud funny. Brings tears to my eyes every time. Keep up the good work. Too bad Theresa can't bring some of this humor into this family she keeps saying she cares about and that's all that matters to her.
Jay you must blog for RHWOBH!
The Housewife shows put the magnifying glass and pressure on the casts lives. The 2 Joes are headed for a show down as we saw by the simmering frustration, anger and violence from recent shows. I hope we do not hear/read about something horrible that happening in the Giudice family or between the 2 Joes.
PS: My prayers to all the people on the Eastern Coast affected by Irene.
