Episode 14: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor wonders just how much nudity we'll see on this trip.
No. 3 - Hot in Herre
Things are getting hot in the RVs in all senses. Our sweet Kathy got saucy when she confesses her wild side: "Sometimes even once a day isn't even enough!" Yikes! The cannoli fixation now makes sense...
Meanwhile in the Gorga/Giudice RV it's just plain hot. This is because Joe Giudice raised the temperature to 101 degrees in the middle of the night. 101 degrees?! Why would you ever set the temperature that high? Of course no one could sleep, because they were actually baking. I'm surprised the blankets didn't spontaneously combust in that sort of heat. I'm just impressed Teresa managed to keep her full-length pajama set on through the night. I probably would have been stripped down and lying on the floor just to try and stay cool.
Side Note: I love how Melissa got up and kind of bumbled around for a minute in a sleepy haze. As a fellow non-morning person, I could relate.
Albie makes a very astute statement while the crew tries to assemble a tent: "Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice build houses for a living, a tent should be no problem." Such was not the case.
At first everyone seemed to be trying to guess at how to put together the tent. Why? Why not use the directions provided? Enter Joe Giudice with the directions. We're saved! Until Joe realizes he can't read them without his glasses. Luckily Caroline offers her glasses to Joe, and it looks like we're moving forward again.
That is until everyone takes a few minutes to make fun of Joe for looking like Rich Wakile. Cut to a subtitled but not clearly discernible voice saying, "Big-ass muscles, small brains." My money is on Chris Manzo if I had to guess, but it's hard to say,
The important lesson here? Building a tent is not as intuitive as building a house. But in all seriousness, props to the Joes for jumping in there and doing it. I didn't see anyone else jumping in there to set up the tent. I in all likelihood would have taken one look at it, given up, and checked into a hotel.
Am I shocked that only one day into the trip the guys are exposing themselves inappropriately? No. Not even slightly. You may have thought Punta Cana was bad, but at least they had separate rooms. Now they're all crammed together into tiny RVs. It was bound to be worse.
Our first morning starts with Joe Gorga waving "Tarzan" at Chris Laurita. I think Joe may be on a mission to show off his friend to every member of the Manzo/Laurita family (the Manzo bros were acquainted with Tarzan back in Punta Cana). In any event, this was not so shocking.
We then cut to the Wakile RV where Richie gets up in every sense. And then just walks around completely unconcerned. No pillow to hide it, no quick grabbing of some shorts. Just strutting his stuff, much to Greg, Melissa, and we the viewers' shock.
And this is all the first morning. By the end of this trip will we be watching The Real Nudists of California? At this rate it's not out of the realm of possibilities.
