During the scenes at Kathy’s BBQ, I was looking at my husband’s face watching the kids play and it made me tear up. I knew what he was thinking. He just wants everything to be normal and peaceful and have his nieces in his life. You could see it in his eyes. Joe wanted to have a positive conversation and to tell his sister to enjoy the day and to just let everything go. Teresa doesn’t want to hear it and kept bring up in the middle of his sentences, “your wife, your wife!” and the fact that Joe has changed since I came into the picture. Of course he has changed. He has a family now. How can Teresa expect to still be Joe’s first priority in his life?
It’s hard not to see why Joey gets frustrated. It’s almost humanly impossible not to at this point. He’s was trying to be positive, and she just doesn’t get it. There are all different kinds of love. Joe has enough for everyone, but those different kinds of love seem to be blurred with Teresa. The amount of attention she demands from him is a little strange to me. I don’t even require that much, but I constantly try to be patient until they can figure it out. What bothers me the most about their conversation is when she says that I’m a bad aunt to her children and in her interview that Gia hated me. If you watch the episodes, it’s right in front of your eyes. As they are talking, I was holding Audriana and helping her children out of the pool. I was cheering them on from the sidelines, and she keeps making the conversation about me. Why she tries to say these ridiculous things is beyond me.
