No. 1 - When Greggy Met Patti
Greg loves Patti LaBelle. Like really loves Patti LaBelle. As soon as he caught a glimpse of her at the Fancy Food Festival, it was over. He was bringing her some .blk and talking to her no matter what. He would have scaled a wall and swam through a moat to spend some time with this woman.
However Greg nearly didn't make it over to her, after being overpowered by the fabulousness of her Louis Vuitton scarf. Somehow, some way he was able to recover his senses and deliver the .blk water. What happened next was truly magical experience for both Greg and the viewers.
First off, Patti LaBelle knew who Greg was because she's a fan of Real Housewives of New Jersey. From the look on Greg's face I thought he was going to float away and enter heaven. Then she confirmed what Greg has been saying all along -- she is his godmother (not actually, but totally in spirit). Again, look of pure ecstasy on Greg's face. And when Patti whipped out her Louboutins, well, if the scarf nearly stopped Greg from coming over the shoes nearly stopped his heart.
Best part of the whole scene: Greg referred to her only as Miss Patti. He probably said Miss Patti about five times.
Your blog is boring. Just like this show has become the bash Teresa show. I'm not a Teresa cheerleader, but never understood what horrific thing she did too cause such hatred. Other then Teresa and her family the others are uninteresting. Bye...Bravo. Hope Teresa goes to another network..
This show has turned into one big fat commercial. I'm so tired of all these cast members shoving their brands down our throats. Bethenny did it first and was much less obvious and offensive. The marketing of themselves is the number one reason for all the feuding. It's petty and greedy. Bravo should put limits on the camera time for all of this. I for one will no longer watch if this continues.
Bravo and Andy, Most of us are so over this constant Teresa bash fest. If it was your intent to destroy Teresa along with her family and friends it was a complete fail. All it did was make her more popular. BUT in the process you will loose fans if the reunion and next season is another lets all bash Teresa and that includes you Andy. People are tired of Caroline, Jax, Kathy and the Gorgas.Andy I liked you until the last NJ reunion you along with everyone else picked apart everything Teresa and Joe said and did. You should have stayed neutral, but no you helped fan the flames. Believe me most people will not watch another season of this horror show. By the way Richie and Joe Gorga are nasty beyond belief. You had so much to say about Joe Guidice at the last reunion, I want to see what you have to say about these two disgusting men.
@karen9822 Completely agree....and after watching WWHL last night where Teresa was a guest, you can just feel and see that Andy is not a Guidice fan. His demeanor is so different when the other RHONJ are on. So disappointed in you Andy!!!! I'm sure Bravo is raking in some profits from the only successful woman of this franchise. This will be my last year if this show continues down the same path. So disgusted by the past two seasons. Clean house Andy...and take out the garbage...or just give Teresa her own show...that is what a great percentage of your viewers want! Tired of the nastiness and pettiness.....and am horrified that the Gorga Sr.'s have had to endure so much at the hands of their own son.
It's obvious to me that the producers are friends with the Manzo's, Laurita's and Gorga's. Also, the episodes each week have been out of sequence in regards to events, etc. Also, that scene with the Manzo's at Jacquelines house was so staged (again!). When they were talking about the upcoming trip to Napa and Caroline wants to uninvite the Guidices. Did you see the smirks on all their faces you could tell that was all for the storyline and fake. They knew Bravo paid for the trip and Teresa and Joe had to go.
This is the only HW franchise that has gone to pot. It's extremely obvious that the production crew and Andy are biased. They obviously do not like the Guidices and have set them up. People don't want to see this trainwreck anymore. Hope you got your ratings and money for the cost of Theresa's family. How sad... that this all became about who makes the most money. Everyone is trying to make it big like Bethenny and will stop at nothing to discredit Teresa and her best selling cookbooks, her children and her parents
My QUESTION is where do you (Bravo) go from here? And, what's the point of the reunion. It's four against Teresa. It will be a hatefest to discredit Teresa. How do you expect her to handle that or are you hoping that she will FLIP out so you get more ratings.
I'm surprised that she hasn't had a breakdown like Jacqueline. But Teresa has proved to people how strong she has become after all these attacks. No on on this cast is innocent and have all been hypocrits but we won't see that on the reunion. It's obvious that Teresa is not good with expressing herself and especially when people are all coming after you at once sometimes I know from experience your mind goes blank and can't think fast enough because your so surprised at what they are saying. I realize it's a part of her contract that she attend the reunion but maybe they need to have Danielle show up with the evidence in hand. And, we all know what's coming up, the supposed set up at the Posche Fashion Show. That's when Jac went crazy on twitter calling Teresa scum. Why don't you have the people from the beauty shop on the reunion to vindicate Teresa because she knew nothing about it.
Bottom line, obviously, this same cast can't continue. Everybody hates Teresa. I personally think the Manzo's, Gorga's and Wakile's are all disgusting and quite boring with the exception of Rosie. Oh, and I forgot Jacqueline is also quite boring. What would she talk about without Teresa not being on the show. Give Teresa her own show or I hope for her sake that another network picks her up and is more kind to her. The rest of the cast needs to be on Mtv or VH1.
To bad Miss Patti did not like the water. She took a very small sip. I'll bet she did NOT place an order from Greggy. I'm sure when Miss Patti watched the show and heard Caroline's son Albie said that he never heard of Miss Patti she picked up the phone or ran out to purchase a few cases of BLK water. NOT!!!!
This was the worst show EVER! Joe Gorga is disgusting and vile, along with Richie! Did someone at Bravo forget this is RHONJ and not about the damn Manzo kids and Greg. I couldn't care less about them!
I believe we need serious recasting of this program. This season and last season have turned into a Teresa bash. The viewers want to tune in to something fun and entertaining. Not a hate fest.
1). Melissa & Joe Gorga need to go. They've turned this show into a sex parade! If we wanted to watch that (and I don't) we could just order some soft porn. This past week with the toe sucking was the WORST. I had to leave the room, I REALLY don't care to see what they're doing in their bedroom. And the preview of Melissa in her photo shoot, faking a you know what, is so old....When Harry met Sally it worked. Not now. Joe & Melissa's 15 minutes of fame....has been going on way too long.
2). Kathy & Rich need to go. Without Rosie they have nothing interesting going on. IMO. I love Rosie but could do without Kathy (too passive aggresive) and Rich (too many snide and disgusting remarks). They are not housewife material, a little too boring.
3). Jacqueline & Chris need to go. This whole past episode with BLK was a waste of viewers time. If we want to but the product, we know it's out there and we will. I for one am passing. The thought of black water reminds me of sewer water. Sorry I know that's gross, but that's truly how I feel.
4).The Manzos & Greg, where do I begin? The adult children either need to be given their own program or limit their time on the screen. Perferably, eliminate them along with their folks. Caroline and Albert Manzo are too arrogant & self-rightuos to be on the show. Not to mention, Caroline's negative attitude for the past 2 seasons. It's just boring and no fun to watch. Greg, I haven't even figured out the point of him being on the show??
5). TERESA HAS EARNED her way. Please keep her or give her her own show! She is funny, laughable and entertaining. Her family is the same....They're fun!! The kind of family that looks fun to hang out with. Teresa's strength and perserverance have also earned her spot. Everyone loves to see someone picking up the pieces of their shattered life with such an optimistic point of view.
I've read many blogs and it seems to me, the viewers are tired of this dark side of NJ. We want FUN! We are sick of women acting like mean girls from highschool. As a society, we should be brandishing bullying, not promoting it! (Or awarding it!)
OMG I freakin hate Greg! Enough already! Please Andy get him and the Manzos off the screen already. Why do we have to watch their kids every week. They are so corny and annoying.
I lost respect for Patti LaBelle after all of this. Because Greg SUCKS. Tell me why he's important again?Also, bring back Jay Mohr's blogs. Sheesh.
I agree with Mountainclimber. Enough of the creepy Joe Gorga and "Greggy". And enough of the creepy "crotch" shots... its embarrassing....Jeez, this is supposed to be the HOUSEWIVES....what the heck??
Patty, Teresa and Gia were the stars of this episode. It was great to see Patty! Im interested in their products. Teresa really should start a clothing and accessary line for girls!!
OMG, enough with the Manzo kids, and Greg, and Joe Gorga! This is the HOUSEWIVES SHOW! Please find Teresa a new cast. Everyone else has no storyline and they are full of hate.
and again, why is greg on the show. i tune in to watch the wives not there grown children and their friends
Greg and his adoration for Miss patti was sweet. She truly loves her fans, regardless of which way they float. Loved their interaction. Joe is Joe, God love him. He loves hiim some Melissa, cool. They're young, and fun. Gia was good, glad she had the opportunity to strut her stuff.
If Bravo is trying to represent the gay community, talk about u-hauls and muff cups and crude bar scenes are not the way to go. And is there anyone who really cares about seeing Greg?
mountainclimber Yeah, some of the things that were said were super offensive! Why does Joe Giudice get called out, but Kathy, her husband and the rest don't?!?
What a waste of an episode...seemed like an infomerical for products that I would never buy!! Also, it is disgusting to see Gregg going crazy over Patti LaBelle...doesn't anyone else remember her having her body guards beat up a West Point cadat at a Houston airport because he was standing too close to her Louis Vuitton luggage! UGH!! Disgusting...come on Bravo, you are better than that!
If i wanted to watch two adults interact in the bedroom I would buy a movie. So over the Melissa and Joe "sex life." He is no man but a fifteen year old in a man's body.
I concur that these shows have become about the housewives products, singing careers, books, and more. Enough is enough
Personally I think all the shows need to be recast. Bravo do you listen to us the viewers?
I agree, please recast except for Teresa! The meanspiritness of the other women, and watching the demise of Jacqueline's emotional well being over MONEY, is not fun to watch. And we want fun. Please bring back the old RHONJ with Teresa and some new blood.
I'm just wondering if you thought it was ok when Teresa and Joe Giudice were broadcasting their sex life in the previous 3 seasons...she even says they did so in her blog this week.
Bravo I'm tired of seeing Greg, Chris, Albie or Lauren. Please end the torture..They are not interesting to watch.
What happened to real HOUSEWIVES of NJ?!!!!! Tired of the Manzo kids and their friends and sick of all of Joe Gorga and his constant sex talk! Bravo you are losing me with this show!
I agree with you. My husband and I have decided to to not watch this show. We watch it with our family and we keeping changing the channel everytime Joe Gorga make those very unapproporiate comments. NOT A SHOW TO WATCH WITH THE FAMILY ANYMORE. Mellisa and Joe have no class.
Liza4Teresa I agree...I used to like watching with my sixteen year old daughter... Not anymore.
I actually cringed when I saw that sex scene with Melissa and Joe. Joe Gorga is disgusting.
I think he has little man syndrome. He should seek therapy for that.
Love the Manzo. Housewives SHOULD have families with story lines that encompass all the players. REALITY?
This isn't necessarily a comment on your latest blog but, rather, a response to the trend that has become more prevalent with the Housewives franchise. It is getting tiring - very, very tiring - to see how the shows have turned into a platform for individual branding, merchandising, and marketing. Originally, it was fun to hear about the lives of each of the housewives. Now, it is difficult to tell where we are seeing their real lives or merely what they feel is needed in order to promote their products. C'mon, Bravo....eventually, you will see a backlash to this runaway train. Please post this and see how many "likes" you get - it will show you what I believe is true....we're ALL tired of it - and we're ALL tired of being used for housewife self-promotion.
Cast mates should not be allowed to market their products on the show. I thought this was a reality show not an infomercial!!
I personally don't mind seeing what the housewives are up to with their products, ya know a short little mention or clip but jeeeezzzz..... between the commercials & their product promotions left very little time for the housewives stuff last night. ALSO the biggest chunk of time went to the Manzo/laurita MEN, not the housewives. It truely was overkill.
I agree except for Teresa. Teresa found her success organically through the cookbooks. We led her to the cookbooks, and she didn't try and crucify anyone to get hem.
atthebeach YES!! Thank you for posting what is going on with the entire RH franchise. Bethenny used RH as a launchpad for success, but now every person on a RH show has their own product trying to mimic her. Auuuugh.
It didn't seem like patti liked that water. She was being polite and she got some free advertisement. da!!
It is water, nothing special. These people think they are selling something extraordinary,,lol
