Episode 2: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks Albie has finally figured out Ashlee.

Apr 30, 20120

Sexting, physical fights, Ke$ha references... This episode was a real grab bag of strange happenings. So let's look back at some of the most memorable moments.

No. 3 - Fly Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Wakile

Evidently Victoria and Joseph aren't the only black belts in the Wakile family -- Richie's got some moves as well. Now to take it back a bit, Joe Giudice and Rich have always had a ball-busting relationship, as we saw last season. That's just how Jersey guys bro out.

But the ball busting got a little too literal during poker night. (Side note: Did any one ever even get to play any poker that evening? My guess is no.) Of course somehow the competitiveness about height came into play, and Rich and Joe Giudice decided to compare back-to-back. (Really, guys, let the height thing go. None of you are getting drafted into the NBA, give it a rest.) Then for whatever reason Joe decides that he's going to grab Rich's balls. Because... Yeah, I have no idea. So as Joe attempts to grab the Wakile family jewels, Rich flips him over and Joe hits his eye on a candelabra in the process.

Cut to all the men recounting the tale of the tussle to their wives as if this is a completely normal occurrence. Watching the girls try and grasp why and how this debacle occurred was maybe the best part of the whole incident.

Andy and Bravo this is despicable.......Its hard to watch cause these are broken families. You are playing around with blood ties for ratings. I'm Losing respect for the network for this. Its beyond Melissa fake a** trying to get TV time and a singing career. Please switch the cast up asap. Kathy is boring g and doesn't even have a real beef with Theresa. We may laugh and take sides with Nene and Kim feud and others but this is different and I'm over it.

What about Chris' comment about Melania and the other "a's". I thought that was hilarious! Those Manzo boys are great.

I don't blame Jay Mohr for not blogging this season. Not after the way he was treated by some people last season. Why should he give up his time to be berated by a bunch of jerks on the Bravo site? Not everybody was rude, but several of them were. Go back and re-read some of the messages.

SCARY PEOPLE ON HERE SAYING PLEASE KEEP TERESA. Its tough watching her week after week screw up, be a horrible friend and sister and then try to act like she's OK and everybody else is wrong...but its even tougher to read these blog comments and realize there are more sick people out there that agree with Teresa. WOW!

Joe explaining the rumble to Melisa in their car, and her question,"why was Joe grabbing Rich's BALLS???" Was funny. I to wondered, why his balls? that's weird and a first, Ive never heard of a straight man grabbing another man's balls never. Now that they know how Joe "rumbles", I suggest to all the men who hang(parden the pun) with Joe Guidece,to wear JOCK STRAPS!!!

Re: the above poster Grants Pass Gal...There is no way I'm watching anymore of the Manzo's; anyone who hasn't seen their true colors and think their mean comments are funny cannot be thinking clearly. Please, Bravo, time for a major cast change, and please do NOT cast anymore family members who do NOT get along. Thanks for listening...hope you post.

IMHO you should dump everybody but Teresa. There would be no story line without Teresa. She really needs her own show and the other wannabes can flounder and see how long they would last.

Please dump Caroline & jacqueline & bring in someone who would be a "true" friend & supportive of Theresa. So tired of everyone ganging up on Theresa, how much do you expect her to take?

BRAVO I hope (and I'm sure you are) taking note of what is going on with the fans of this show. You are losing us in droves by keeping these hateful, boring women and their ridiculous husbands on the show. Time to clean house - give the Giudices their own show and move one from these other LOSERS who have destroyed one of your best franchises. I haven't watched this season and don't intend to until the final episode (a.k.a Teresa backup in the form of Penney and Kim) - I miss the show as it was my favorite guilty pleasure but can't and won't support the 4 clowns in any way.

Why no Jay Mohr? The Jersey Housewives recaps - as told by Jay - were often better than the show itself and often prompted me to re-watch an episode post his recap - to see some of the moments he mentioned with a new perspective. I am sure Bravo TV wants people to watch and re-watch their programs. So why, do you insist on making the recaps such a yawn-fest now? No offense, this week's recap sucked :(

Bring Jay Mohr back!!!

Team Kathy and Melissa. The Gorga's and The Wakile's are the real deal. The Giudice's are a bunch of Judas's.

I wish Bravo would show more positive scenes. Jac talked about how she had asked Joey to apologize to his sis, how Jac hugged Teresa and said she was proud of her, how Jac had a heart to heart with Ash before leaving. All those scenes would have been positive and make the audience feel so much better about what's going on with these families! The fans want to see less fighting and more positive family time!
