A Family Affair
Was it just me or were Teresa and Joe this close to making up at the pool party? I really thought it was going to happen. Alas, such was not the case. They seemed to get caught up on, what else, but family.
You say Caroline and Jacqueline are your family.
You say that Melissa’s sisters are your family.
I only have you and our parents.
I don’t need anyone.
Be an aunt.
Why doesn’t Melissa be an aunt?
You get the idea. Isn’t it a good thing to have a lot of people in your life that you consider close enough to be family? Does it need to be a competition? Can’t we all just get along? Of course easier said as an outsider, because sibling fights never make sense to anyone else but those involved. Something tells me though that we’re maybe (hopefully?) approaching a breakthrough.
Just have to say that for me personally the addition of the Wakile & Gorga families saved the NJ Housewives. Joey has a huge heart and tg that unlike his sibling he also has common sense and more than a 3rd grade vocabulary. BEST WWHL guest ever!
No one is bringing up the drunk trainer!! I know I couldn't have been the only one to see Bravo's zoom into the purse showing the wine bottle.
Fitness Trainer drinking Sutter Home WHILE working and IN a client's home?? WTF! Why is this not being addressed????
Can't take how fake Joey and Melissa are!! They came on this show because they were jealous of Teresa and they wanted to bring her down!! First Melissa said Teresa tried to keep them away but we seen her and her husband at there parties in old episodes. Then she says Joe came home crying about what Teresa said about Melissa leaving him for someone with more money did not see him crying when he told her.
Saddest show on TV......I am afraid this kind of drama is going to be the undoing of the Real Housewives series. Drama is ok, but the destruction of a family is not! Also the obvious taking of sides by producers on this series causes one to question the credibility of production.
I agree the Gorgas & Wakiles saved this NJ franchise!!! They are pure gold!! Greg & Rosie rock too, NOW Bravo get rid of the one guy who is prejudiced and ruining it all!!! JOE GUIDICE time to go....to jail, to hell, who cares JUST GO!!!
It's time to rotate out some of these ladies like Caroline and Jacqueline.... they bore me, and they are chomping at each bit of the Gorga/Giudice/Wakilie feud to stay relevant. I fast forward through all their segments.
Give Teresa her own show....tired of the nonsense the other four ladies bring to the show...it's so boring.
The four bullies think Teresa is horrible and should be burned at the stake...blah...blah...blah!! Melissa is telling everyone how wonderful she is and they believe her and worship her...praising Jesus...blah..blah..blah! Caroline swallows a huge bitter pill after Teresa got the cookbook deal and it's successful and she can't get any deals...blah..blah..blah! Kathy just wants to sell her desserts but no one is interested...blah..blah..blah! Jacqueline is so mesmerized by Melissa's "beauty" that she wants to be her...blah...blah..blah! The Manzo's adult "children" spew venom Teresa's way every chance they get but are offended if it comes back at them...blah..blah..blah! Joe Gorga is full of poison and is a horrible brother that tosses his sister to the side and calls her garbage and a b$tch...blah...blah..blah! And Rich is an arrogant gas station man who along with his wife signs up for a show for his and her own personal gain all the while crucifying the family member that made it all possible...blah...blah...blah!
That scene with the Jag was so lame it was embarrasing. Then we have Caroline and her hubby trying to defend why they frauded New Jersey by trying to convince us they almost live at the Brownhouse. And then on to the real meat and potatoes Teresa and how we can try to trap her into exploding. She leaves Joe home cause he might fight, she says no when Kathy asks her to talk to joey, then she tells joey she does not want to talk with her kids there. But like pulling the wings off of a butterfly, you finally get her Yeah. Hope it makes you all happy.
I think is EXTREMLY sad that Teresa and Joe dont get along..after watching this last expisode at Kathy's house Teresa just doenst get it...she will not admit to any wrong doing on any of this..sorry to say but girl some of what your going through is your fault I had to say...swallow your pride and burry the hatchet and move on already...but what it comes down to is Teresa is very jealous of her brother and sister in law big time...and its a shame because the girls are ALOT alike and have beautiful kids , homes and husbands...but she just cant see that at all...shame really is a shame..
So Associate Editor, Producers and Andy, are you proud of yourselves? This has got to be the saddest season and I thought it couldn't get any worse than season 3. I know this is ratings gold and money in your pockets but it is at the expense of a real family and a real human being, Teresa. We ALL have faults and room for improvement yet Teresa is the only one who is expected to be held accountable from everyone. There has been comments, insults, ridicule and sarcasm on boths sides from everyone about everyone on this show yet Teresa is the only one who cannot get a PASS.
Remember Editor, Producers and Andy she is only human and can only take so much. Everyone has their breaking point. No one knows what is truely going on in her head/heart. She is a proud woman who was probably raised to not be allowed to express her emotions or maybe was told it is weak to show emotion. However, no one would have thought Russell from RHOBH would have ever done what he did, a married man and father yet he decided to take an extreme action due to his circumstances. Is all this ratings gold worth it if Teresa were to decide to do the same? It's time to put more value and emphasis on positives rather than the negatives.
Maybe this would all be easier to watch if the faults of the cast were evenly distributed on the show and the reunion but when bricks are only thrown at one person when they all live in glass houses is insulting to us viewers and the person you are throwing the brick at, Teresa.
Why does Andy hate Teresa so bad? After reading blogs and comments I had an aha moment. Bravo / Andy do not like Teresa and they encourage the bullying of her and put it on tv for the world to see. What the hell ? She is the reason people watch the show. Yall should be kissing her ass and paying her the big bucks. She is taking one for the "team' aka Bravo. She is the only reason the show has high ratings.
I understand how people feel about Teresa and I feel bad for her also, BUT and this is a big but, we all get mad at Rich for using name calling, but how about Joe giudice using name calling and thinking he is the only guy out there. He calls Kathy a frog, he calls melissa a raccoon, and has big eyes. He tells his 11 yearold daughter to shut the f up she does not know what she is talking about, and tells his wife constantly to shutup, he have to look at this man pumping iron all the time or lifting himself up in a door, kicking a bag in te garage. The show is not about him or for him. He is a criminal now by his own doing and needs to pay for it. If he were my hsuband he would tell me or our children to shut up like that, and he would ge bone for good. We can all judge the other wives on the show for name calling, but I do not hear one word about that big sloth, as that is all he is.
I think you all should be carefully monitoring Joe Giudice. He appears to be on steroids and deeply depressed. This could end tragically. He is either going to end up beating Teresa, or murdering the entire family and then killing himself. This man is suffering and he has no tools for coping with his humiliating situation. Help him. Remember Russell.
I am soooo appalled at this season being a repeat of the last with Teresa being the human punching bag for the entire cast. They all give lip service as to their "trying" to work with Teresa but its all BS. They are strength in numbers and love the acceptance and support they all give each other as they hate Teresa. The show has become dark and predictable week after week. Joe Gorga is just a bad actor as he really tried to play it up to the camera of how wrong Teresa was and how right he was when they had their talk on the last show aired. Teresa didn't take the bait. I bought the first 2 seasons on DVD but did not buy the last and will not be buying this one. These are a bunch of cruel people lacking a shred of integrity as they enjoy alienating Teresa as a group. Also Andy, you love to corner Teresa and try to make her look bad and bring up embarrassing personal matters about the legal issues in her and Joe's life. Why do you want to go after her too? Doesn't anyone have a heart. Stopped enjoying the show when Teresa's family members became cast members. There should have at least been a new housewife in season 4 that supported Teresa instead of season 4 just being a mean repeat of 3. Shame on you Bravo. Teresa is becoming so successful in other areas of her life that she needs to drop the housewives and move forward. Then the Manzos, Gorgas and the rest can turn on each other.
Just read on the CELEB website for 5/16/12 that Caroline threatened to quit the show unless they fire Teresa. Of course I know you can't believe everything you read so I don't know if it's true or not. Just want to say if Teresa goes I won't be watching the show anymore which I'm sure is nothing to you. I for one am so sick of Caroline, Jacqueline & Melissa that I may not continue to watch anyway. I use to love this show & would even watch reruns but since it's become nothing but a Teresa bashing it's hard to watch at all. If anyone needs to go please make it those 3 caustic people. I doubt this will be posted mine posts usually don't make it.
Can you address jacqueline mom's twitter comments on how Bravo wanted Jacqueline to set up Teresa. It sure seems like it is true. I hate the video clip of where all the men are making fun of Joe Guidi ce. you are all a bunch of jerks. Especially who ever is laughing off camera when Joe Gorgthe Angel of God is on.
Caroline threatens to quit RHONJ If Teresa Is not fired?!?!?!?! OMG!!! PLEASE!!! LET HER GO TO THE H......!!! She's EXTREMELY BORING (like her whole family) she's WISHES and did I mentioned BORING?!?!?!!!! Teresa is.....she is who she is, but at least she is entertaining!!!!! She is a SPICE of this show. Caroline is AWFUL!!!!!! sorry!!! (just like Jacqueline and her other sister with the disgusting cat...whatever her name is.....deadly boring people)
Producers, Editors, and yes Andy. I am anxious to see the reunion and yes will Andy take it out on Teresa because her husband isnt as mindful of the things that come out of his mouth and there certain things that are ignorant to say even if it wasnt in a inhuman manner, Andy really hit below belt at Teresa last reunion I mean re watch it. But I hope all the ganging up make teresa bigger and she can walk away gracefully like Dina did. RHONJ with out Teresa dont see it happening at all. Not sure who approached Teresa's family to be on show but this may be the end of the show and a family because of it..
