No. 2 - Big-Ass Muscles, Small Brains
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.
I love Kathy and Richie's love .. so adorable .. they have a pretty daughter and a hysterically funny son. Keep Rosie in from time to time, love her. I am so done with ALL the Manzo's. Love Melissa and Joe (just stop trying to prove your virility already,not funny anymore Joe) .. Jacquelyn and Chris, love their love, their kind and forgivng spirit .. Teresa doesn't deserve your friendship.
Caroline no longer enjoys the show and is being so hateful and unhappy its sad to watch. Even Albert seems miserable when he's on the show. The Manzo kids need to get a life and a JOB!
Jaqueline is about to shatter and needs to take a break before things take a turn for the worse; and
Kathy is just a fool. I really wanted to like her! Her kids are adorable and her husband is abrasive and slimely, but still some what entertaining, but Kathy has gone AWOL. Her recent Twitter comments are horrendous, she is blatently insulting the people that watch your show. I wonder how many people are so offended that they change the channel when she's on? Shake it up!! Get rid of Kathy (or just make her a housewife friend with limited appearances)
Bring in someone Melissa doesn't get along with to balance out the playing field and then WWH!
Hulali I agree. It's time to shake up this cast. I will be sooooo glad when this season is over. All of this has made the show no fun to watch. The other RH shows at least have SOME redeeming qualities. This one just drones on and and on and on and on with the same storyline, ATTACK Teresa. Come on Bravo...let's get back to the fun and the interesting lives of EACH castmate. This storyline where you focus on one person has gotten old and boring.
I like the transition on the other shows where you see one of the women at work, then another doing something else, and still another doing something else. On RHONJ it's all centered around what TERESA did, or what TERESA said, or what was written in a tabloid - concerning TERESA. That is just NOT interesting. It seems as though the show has gotten caught up in this storyline and there is no way out. Either get rid of Melissa, Kathy, and the Manzos, or bring in new housewives with interesting lives that give balance to the show.
I am sure there are other interesting families and ladies in NJ that could breathe life back into this show. Also can we have Andy please honestly address what has occurred on the show the past two seasons. Before you move on with new houesewives can the fans at least be made aware of why the show took this turn? It just seems that the fans have been taken on an unpleasant ride that neither makes sense nor justifies the hatred on this show. I still remember from the past seasons when Caroline, Jacqueline and Teresa laughed and talked and had each other's back. They took trips together and genuinely seemed to care for each other. WHAT HAPPENED??
I'm not even sure if bringing new housewives in would change the timbre of the show. Not if you leave the mess which began in season 3. You may have to clean house... an entire new cast. Though I would hate to see Teresa go, I'm not sure if she would survive the aftermath. Jeez this show has really changed so much.
Did anyone else catch the preview of Theresa walking in on her husband referring to her as his b--ch wife? What's the deal with that?
what episode was that?? He treat's her horrible so she pass's it on to Melissa & anyone else she can find. I feel bad for her, but with his body language toward's her , I do feel bad for her on that part . He insults so many people , I want to see the show when he call Chris L. all the name's he call's her !
Its on the next episode, don't miss it, it will break your heart. There's more than just that one comment.
This show should of been R rated .. how very discussing to watch Richie and Joe Gorga who the heck cares about their privates.. I dont want to see them hear about in anyway.. Richie and Joe both insult your wives behaving that way.....
The show has taken a different direction, Teresa with her book, Caroline getting insulted, the product endorsements then again we see Teresa at her book signings, Joe Gorga (please put a leash on Tarzan) flashing Chris ( the toe sucking and the poison is too much also), Richie walking around saluting, Jacqueline all hurt because Teresa is not truthful. I thought that the show was supposed to be ladies from NJ who are involved in charities and how they interact with each other in a "positive way" yeah right.....! They need to make major changes.....
Have you noticed that there has not been ONE gathering of these ladies for a chariable event! (with the exception of Dina and her Ladybug event) Instead of using the TV time to push their products 24/7 they should at least use some of the time to bring attention to worthy charities!
This has become the most boring Real Housewives ever! It's all about the husbands ~ they even have their own commentaries between scenes. It's ridiculous! The Manzos are all famewhores ~ each one of them wanting to be famous. And their product endorsements? It's insanity! I want real Housewives of Beverly Hills back ~ we would never see Mauricio endorsing his real estate work or Ken sharing what he does in great detail. The gatherings are with the housewives ~ not the husbands. This is stupid. The only house-husband who doesn't try to get camera time is Joe Guidice. I think your show would be more appreciated if it's Teresa and her kids/husband rather than this charade of housewives fighting for camera time.
This show has become so trashy it is unwatchable. The husband reference to their $$$$$, is stupid. The whole story line has become painful. Please, Please, Please fire Theresa.
Being from New Jersey and local to the show I watch it to see the area with the sound off. Yet I enjoy all of other housewife shows.
true_jersey I cannot stand tresa i think shes full of crap and im so sick of her and how she treats everyone else and everyone can see that her husband has moved on so if they think they are fooling anyone there not get rid of her!! also we never have seen her cook why would anyone buy any book she supposedly writes she cant even pronouns words or know what they mean ,done with her,caroline and her husband look like they are being forced to be on the show she should be thankful all of us REAL Housewives would love to have an opportunity like they have had
You bought Melissa's horrible acting when she "woke up" dizzy and stumbling? It was so fake and she looked ridiculous. Singing isn't enough? We have to sit through another one of her acting auditions? Please make her go away!
so true...her acting and singing are laughable. the gorgas love to play and "act" for the cameras.
sasabo OMG, I thought the same thing! Her stumbling was so phony much like her entire personality.
Enough already with Joe and his "Tarzan" and Richie with his "whatever". Was it such a slow filming day that you couldn't fill it with some footage (absolutely no pun intended, there..they wish) of the women doing something better then encouraging their husbands to act like high school or college boys? It was disgusting behavior for grown men to act like that among friends and family and to do so while they knew they were being filmed. Very poor judgement on their part , your film production crew and the editing crew to air this crude "adult" behavior. Bravo has stooped into the gutter on this episode with that nasty exhibit of classless behavior.
Please Please no more tarzan or richie's woodie. What in the world have the ladies done to deserve seeing that? I do not understand a man's need to flaunt their wee wees. (pun intended) And men say we are hard (no pun intended) to understand.
As a huge fan of The Housewives & all things Bravo, this was the episode I was hanging on for. Finally, I escaped my own woe's & laughed out loud again! The RHONJ has been increasingly difficult to watch over the last two seasons, and I, for one, have so missed being whisked away into the lives of seemingly well to do, fashionable, friendly trips & sheninagans of fun loving, beautiful wives and/or mothers! I had hoped with the exit of Danielle that's what I would be getting, but...! I don't mind the husbands having a place in the show, in fact they can be quite enjoyable, imo. However, when their key role is trashing anyone, it really makes me rather sick! I really hope the powers that be have been hearing what the fans have been saying before the viewers give up altogether. Also, since I don't know of any complaint department, lol, why is it that maybe 1 of every 6 of my comments are ever posted? I try hard to be pretty nice I think!! (Okay, okay, maybe I might have said a little something a tad naughty about Caroline, but hey, can ya blame me?) Till next time...
I'm sorry, but I had to change the channel last night because of Joe Gorga and Rich Wakile. That was NOT funny in the least, and I can't believe it was shown. Aren't we watching the RHONJ - why all the sudden is mean-spirited Rich, crude Joe and Chris Laurita in more scenes than the housewives. Time to say adios to this franchise. So not funny or appropriate.
Whats up with these house husbands, its suppose to be the housewives. I am so sick of Joe Gorga's tarzan and we really do not have to see Richie's wood. I also find it funny that there was no blog last week from you, were you afraid to mention Caroline's comment on Teresa's marriage. This show has really gone down hill, week after week of picking on one person and watching Caroline being miserable. She is also so afraid to let Jacqueline near Teresa without her watching like a hawk.. So tired of this, can't wait til the season is over. And PLEASE PLEASE make ANDY hold the other women accountable this reunion for all their actions and not let them get away with not answering. Last reunion he drilled Teresa but let the other ones get away without answering. Maybe a questionaire should be sent to viewers so we can let you know what we want Andy to ask, because he always favors the Manzo's.
thumbs-down-rhonj Oh I so agree with you thumbs! So tired of the Manzo's and the rest getting away with everything, but Teresa's feet are always held to the fire for every little thing! And speaking of little things, enough already of Joey Gorga's THING! Richie now too! Those two are so revolting.
@thumbs-down-rhonj I agree too! The others seem so mean spirited when it comes to Teresa and NO accountability. They ALL trash her kids, hubby, marriage, and her work. Even Bravo does it. I hope the others have to answer for how they have acted these two seasons.
Seven people from Caroline's family in this trip and they don't contribute anything to the show. All we want to watch is the beautiful Teresa and her very beautiful family.
I would like to see Beautiful Teresa and her very Beautiful family payback their debtors and stop spending money on expensive handbags, furnishing and remodeling. It sends the wrong message to viewing audience.
ViewerItaliano1 Dude take a chill pill...she is. Why do you think she is working her butt off? How do you know that that purse wasn't a gift from her friend? Or that she hasn't had those things for the last few years? I don't know about you, but I have had some Louis V and Gucci for over 20 years now. They never go out of style, and when properly cared for can last a life time. So get over it already...you sound like a broken record here and on the blogs. And then you have the nerve to say that Teresa never let's anything go! *mock gasp* :p LOL
@Liza4Teresa Didn't your parents ever tell you to mind your own pockets & don't try to count other people's money? It's unbecoming.
@Viewer.n.miami Unfortunately Teresa & Joe were financially irresponsible and chose to share that moment and their current lifestyle nationally. That my Dear is unbecoming.
Thats all you want to watch-not EVERYbody! Give me Carolines family anyday-and by the way it was Chris's trip to begin with-I dont even know why Teresa and Joe went with all the drama!
biancala To make more drama,dont ya know?? she wasnt gonna not be on for a couple weeks!!!
The flashing of "Tarzan" and the "woody" might not have been shocking to you but it was totally disgusting to me. This show is supposed to be about the housewives not their spouse's members! Time for a change!!!
@Christiann52 Agree. And since the addition of the Gorga and Wakile families, this has quickly turned into a Jersey Shore kind of show. If I want to watch that trash, I'll tune into MTV. This franchise of the Real Houswives has turned vile. I'm about to tune out. Classless.
It is no longer amusing to watch all the negativity on this show it is just become too absurd. Enough with the Teresa bashing, without her there would be no show. She is the best, I don't care what the witches of eastwick (franklin ) say.
Aside from the wangs being waved around, this episode was the most fun all season. And Teresa more than anyone made a great effort to be in a good mood, be nice to everyone, and get along with all. Caroline, on the other hand, made an effort to ignore Teresa, let everyone know she dind't want to be there, and scowl and pout her way through another episode.
Please a lot less Manzo siblings and their mascot Greggy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you fire the Manzo's and Laurita's I will buy blk.
