No. 1 - Zou Bisou Bisou
I have to thank the Jersey men for really bringing to life the meaning of Zou Bisou Bisou. Seriously, someone really needs to set Megan's serenade to Don from last season of Mad Men to this scene, it's a guaranteed to be an internet sensation. But I digress.
This scene of Chris and Joe making up was my favorite from the episode for many reasons. It was of course some serious comic relief in an episode that was one long, excruciatingly drawn out fight. (Really someone could have told a knock knock joke and it would have been hilarious juxtaposed with all the chaos.)
But also what was this? It seemed things were going to get crazy between Chris and Joe for a minute there, and then they turned it around and started kissing. What? Did we miss something? I actually don't think so. The Jersey guys seem to have an uncanny ability to get really mad about something and then a minute later get over it. It's almost as if once they verbalize their anger, they realize that it's not actually a big deal.
And then of course Joe Gorga and Rich are so moved that they decide they should start kissing too. Make outs all around! If only the ladies could resolve their issues so easily...
Why does this show feel the need for so much vulgarity If it keeps up I will watch other shows
It might be a good idea for someone at Bravo to monitor Jacqueline Laurita's tweets regarding the reunion. Right now you may get people to tune in thinking - hoping - it might not be a repeat of what went on this season, but she will not be able to contain herself for long.
I don't understand why this blog does not criticize Caroline's tirade. Why does she get a pass for ruining this vacation? Are you afraid Albert will destroy you after his nap? Did Bravo offer Caroline a bonus to make Teresa lose her cool? Is that why she was crying in the room by herself? That would make sense. Lets see Caroline ranted like a lunatic. Yes that would warrant embarrassment and crying.
The troublemakers in this cast have made fun of Joe Guidice's intelligence. He was the smartest guy in the room when he told Caroline to stop. Love Joe or not he is the most sincere guy on this show.
I would have loved to see someone stick up for Teresa! If anyone of those ladies would have told Caroline that her behavior was out of line and they weren't going to stand by and allow someone to be treated like garbage, they would have gained a lot of respect from the viewers. We even teach our children to stick up for someone that's being physically or verbally attacked. Non of the ladies did what was right, they only joined in on the verbal attacks. Shame on everyone!!
Yes I agree Caroline's behaviour was out of line, but Teresa didn't have to stay and "take it and Caroline didn't have to stay and listen in on the conversation between Teresa and Kathy. Neither exercised the option to leave the room.
Teresa should have walked away from the madness but she didn't. So I ask did she do it for the cameras? Or for dramatic effect? I don't know and I sincerely doubt anyone else does but it does amaze me at how people like to draw their own conclusions based on the minutes of viewing the production staff put out there. I would like to see Teresa with that same fire give it to her husband when he calls her those unsavoury names to her face though. What the heck is she, his pin cushion?!
@Oofa everyone on this show has some serious behavioral issues no doubt. They all could benefit if they exercised some self control with their mouths too. The cursing and sexual scenes are going overbaord and Bravo needs to clean it up some. As for me this sinful pleasure is becoming too sinful to watch. I may have to take my viewing time and start watching something else.
Oofa sammy001 Teresa did walk away. Caroline baited her, remember? She said something to the effect of, "Now you are going to walk/run way?" I think Teresa responded, "No Caroline I can sit here all night looking at you if you'd like." Can't remember which but I do remember Teresa attempting to walk away.....Caroline never attempted to diffuse the situation.
Oofa sammy001 When she tried to leave Caroline baited her back. Her relationship with her husband is sad but that problem is unrelated to Caroline's behavior toward her. Caroline exploits the fact that Teresa doesn't explain herself well. Caroline enjoyed that confrontation - that's what made it so disgusting.
The show is very boring now. How many times can the cast talk about Theresa’s bankruptcy, and all the ways Theresa has been at fault? I’m over it. Every episode seems to be the same. Everyone is getting along and then by some means everyone hates Theresa and the show goes back to everyone against her. I know Theresa isn’t innocent and does deserve some blame, but it’s becoming mundane. I cannot sit through watching the season if there is not some sort of change. A new cast is needed. New Jersey needs a makeover like NYC.
I think they all need to take a lie detector test. I have heard everyone saying they are "telling the truth" and "please believe me". Well what better way to put to rest who "thinks" they are telling the truth. do it before the reunion show and then Andy can talk about the results at the reunion show. Lets include their husbands and "adult" children.
Who supports this?
I Can't believe no one stepped and stopped the nonsense Caroline started with Theresa. Why didn't the husbands just take their wives to another area till things calmed down? I would not have allowed that fight to go as long as it did. What a disgrace. And why are Caroline's kids always around? Poor Lauren sticking up for her mom when we all know Caroline would never have done the same for her. Please take the Manzos off the show. I'd rather have Danielle back. At least you knew where she was coming from even if you didn't like her.
@Jrzegrl there are only three reasons why they didn't step in and stop the attack on Teresa. 1) their afraid of Caroline 2) they don't like Teresa 3) they take pleasure in seeing someone verbally attacked.
sammy001 Jrzegrl I think more afraid of Caroline than not liking Teresa. I thought that two of them, Melissa and Jacqueline, minded their own business because they considered themselves to have reconciled somewhat with Teresa.
It all boils down to Dina!!! Caroline still blames Teresa for Dina not speaking to her. Can't wait for Dina's appearance this week.
Where's Rosie when you need her? I watch this show because they come from the area I grew up in near Paterson. The dynamic of this show needs a serious makeover.
I've been watching since day one and if this doesn't stop, this will be my last season. I haven't watched any of the re-runs and only have seen the last 2 episodes for this season. It's disgusting to watch one woman get attacked over and over again. Get rid of everyone except for the Guidices and the Gorga's. Bring in other people, other friends of theirs and go in a different direction otherwise this show won't survive!
I think Caroline is really blowing this out of proportion. Teresa has apologized to her over and over again, she won't accept her apology so just move on for God's sake! Stop attacking her, Teresa is not jealous of you, she's had so much happen to her this year, I'm not surprised she hasn't had a "mental breakdown" like you just did Caroline! You have attacked her over and over, if it's over, it's over, move the F*** on! I'm a little disappointed in the way you acted Carolina, you disappointed me, let it go!!!
Teresa just doesn't get it..I watched the sunday episode last night, you only hears what she wants, she contradicts herself...She said she got paid for one story, then later changed it to 7 stories, tells caroline the cookbook was a joke but then then did the same thing to Tre and she said it was hurtful. I am not on anyones side, I see the whole picture, Caroline is a bully and I would not tollerate her behavior as a friend. Kathy shouldn't have gotten involved, it made things worse...I understand Tre didn't toast kathy but in her explaination it made sense, Jaqueline and Chris invited them and Jow, Melissa, Joe and Tre were working things out, Kathy and tre had already worked things out...They all need to grow up and if Caroline treated me the way she treats Tre and bossed me around like she does the other girls, I would end the friendship!
That was just all ridiculous, and I am very proud of Teresa for how she handled everything. They were all really hoping to get Teresa to snap, especially Caroline, and in the end she didn't accomplish what she wanted. Caroline is just plain evil.
Who does that?
And Kathy needs to stop being passive- agressive. She started that whole thing. She hides behind the whole "oh I'm just trying to be nice" faccade, when in reality she was just upset over a stupid toast and started this whole thing. She needs to stop being so clingy. It seems they're all unhealthily obsessed with Teresa!!!
I"M SHOCKED! Have you viewers watched this video Bravo has posted "Teresa Storms Out". They edited out EVERYTHING they did to Teresa and if this is all they can find to edit Teresa looking bad than that's sad. The Associate Editor must be very proud that Teresa was on the verge of tears and that they are manipulating the reality of the truth and it's not fair to viewers or The Gorga/Giudice families.
I can't wait for this season to be over, it has not been enjoyable watching everyone gang up on one person, Teresa. I still have not seen anything that she could of done to warrant the awful behavior of all the others. It's pure mean bullying and shame on Bravo for allowing this to happen. I hope next season Bravo makes some major changes in the cast. I am sick of all the Manzo's and if they come back next season I won't be watching
@SheliaKay I feel the same way. I'm getting kinda embarrassed that I even watch it, it's turned into such a hateful show. My husband walked by me a couple of times when I was watching it, shaking his head asking how I could even watch such stuff.
I'd love it if Andy Cohen addresses the accusations that Melissa and Joe sent a tape to Bravo, in Godfather style, promising to take down Theresa at the reunion. I hope there is no truth to it and its just an internet rumer. Theresa has been thru HELL these past few years, enough to make even the best of us throw in the towel. For her family, friends and employer to add salt to the already painful wounds would be DESPICABLE.
The reason Tre has been through hell is because of that good for nothing husband. He brought this crap on to his family. It's Tre's choice to stick it out and endure this shame. Her next book could read "How to Lose a Ton of Weight in 30 days....Unload the Husband!"
Linda_M Yep. I've wondered for a long while about that. When Andy interviewed Teresa in this last WWHL I felt he was rude to her.
I agree and would like to know why? Maybe he's scared Albert will "destroy" him?
Jerseygirl2 Linda_Mhahahaha, I would love to know from Caroline, how Albert will "destroy" Joe Juicy!!!
@donna1124nyc @Jerseygirl2 @Linda_M just like Caroline said, if Al got up, lights out.. and that would be so he could take a nap..lol
sammy001 donna1124nyc Jerseygirl2 Linda_M
Its things like that which Caroline says makes me dislike her very much. And if I hear Caroline say "It is what it is" one more time, I'm going to change the channel!!! I'm so sick of her and her arrogance.
Come on, you can't believe what is being done to Teresa is fair. You can't continue to have one person shoulder the badgering from these women. She is inarticulate but she isn't a bad person - what did she really do? This is shameful and is not - is not - enjoyable to watch. Don't you have a conscience about this. Caroline's behavior in any workplace would never be tolerated.
There are those who post here who tells us to see this show for what it really is.."reality." But, the reality you all show is really quite sad. Nudity, backstabbing, fighting, marriages falling apart, and so forth, is not the reality viewers really want to see. Tired of the venom spewed, accusations made etc. I think if you want to keep these shows going you need to get a new cast!
All, I know is this fighting is absolutely ridiculous and NOT entertaining. I hope Bravo realizes this franchise needs a major make-over. Personally, I'd like to see Caroline go, because her hatred last night made me change the channel.
Please Bravo, change the dynamic of the show. The show should be called "Everybody hates Teresa"....
I don't even care who is right or wrong anymore. I just want everyone to stop ganging up on Teresa. If you don't like her than just stop mentioning her over and over and over in your blogs. Move on. Bravo why do you gloss over Carolines scary behavior? I know it won't get posted God forbid we bring up anything truthful.
