Teresa updates us on Gia's dance team.

Hi Baby Dolls!

Happy Summer, Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone is staying safe in this heat! We're all at the beach just enjoying being with each other and sitting still for once... well, as still as you can ever sit with 4 girls!

I'm in such a happy place -- literally! Thank you all so much for supporting me through everything -- you all are like a giant, extended family to me -- and thank you for helping me stay positive and count my blessings. No matter what, with four healthy, beautiful girls and a wonderful husband, my blessings will always outweigh any drama!

I'm going to dedicate my blog to my first baby, my Gia. I'm so glad you got to see her dancing. It's what she loves, and what she is so dedicated to doing. She works so hard, and I'm so proud of her! I love that she's on a dance team, because they're like a small family -- they all look out for each other and work so hard together. She loves her teammates and Lex the other main girl dancer, and her choreographer -- she really loves everything about it! I'm happy to see her involved with something so positive.

This week, I'm taking Gia to Florida for the Monsters of Hip Hop Dance Convention. She and her T.R.U.E. dance crew are going to be dancing for three days straight! I'll put tons of pics and videos up on my website. If you think she was good a year ago, you should see how far she's come! Andy should have G-to-the-IA dance on WWHL, especially now that she’s out of school for the summer. Tell him you want to see her!Gia has a video shoot coming up, and lots of big things I can't wait to tell you about. For more information about Gia and her dancing, follow her on Twitter @TrueGia (PS--the account is monitored by her manager, Maria, and me, so don't worry, she never sees anything but happy stuff!). And follow T.R.U.E. on Facebook -- they're always looking for good new dancers!

Since I'm going to be down there for a few days and I love my Florida fans, I scheduled a quick stop at the Orlando Barnes & Noble at Colonial Plaza Market Center on Saturday, July 14 at 1pm. Come see me!

All right, what else was in this episode? Oh yeah, Milania... How funny is she? Did you see my face when she called Joe a "big poop?" The things that kid says every day. I never know what's going to come out of her mouth! I'm kind of glad it's all being recorded on the show, because I'd never remember it all otherwise. Someday I'm sure she'll watch it and be embarrassed... although then again, maybe not.

You don't see my beautiful Gabriella on TV as much because she's not super extroverted. She kind of hides from the cameras, but she's always with us. She likes to watch what's going on, and she loves to draw. She's like an old soul. Gabriella is not as outspoken as her sisters, but believe you me, when she needs to, she says what's on her mind! She can hold her own. Don't let the quiet ones fool you!

And Audriana, OMG... she is like Milania No. 2! Whatever Milania says, Audriana says it right after her. She's tough and fiesty, just like Milania. Wait until you see her now, it's crazy!

I love, love, love my niece Antonia and was so happy to be at her birthday party. The kids had a blast. They love being together, and that's what it all about.

I really like Albie and hope he finds true love. He deserves it! (Everyone does!) Lindsey looks like a sweet girl. I wish them the best!I'm excited to see next week's episode at Beatstock. It was such an amazing day!

Check out my website for my latest photos, Fabellini info, and my appearance schedule. And follow me on Twitter @Teresa_Giudice and Facebook. Love, love, love you all!

Tanti Baci,
Teresa xx

Amber: Is Dina Coldhearted?

Amber Marchese dishes on her first reunion and why Dina Manzo confuses her.

Hello Housewife friends!  Welcome to the jungle baby! My first reunion was a wild ride. Call me sick and twisted, but I had an unbelievable time at the reunion when most, I have been warned, dread it. I felt like it was “The Great Purge” and when I went home I was felt relieved of any built up tension. I don’t care if anyone has a grudge against me, my slate is clean and I harbor no ill feelings towards anyone. I love to argue my point, and I truly stood by all of my convictions this season, so I was ready to say exactly what was on my mind, and then some. 

I know the twins and I went at one another pretty hard, but that is what the reunion is all about. It is an opportunity to get it all out and potentially understand one another's position better. Then we can each make our own decisions as to where we want to go with our relationships. I am very much the type of person that can say some of the meanest things and sling mud, but hug it out at the end forgetting anything negative that was said. It just rolls off my back. I actually think it is healthier to say what needs to be said, and then move on.

One thing I did question after the reunion was if Dina actually has a heart or if I should start calling her the Tin Man. I actually have not figured her out yet. Is she really just a coldhearted bitch, or has she been hurt so many times that she has become warped and jaded. I feel I don’t owe anyone any reason as to why I call cancer “the cancer,” but I will give it once more anyhow. “The cancer” is “the monster” to me. It is a way for me to take away its power and to minimize it. “It” destroys lives, so “it” does not deserve a name. It is just “the cancer” -- it was “the monster” or “the dragon.” Although Dina claims to have an understanding of how devastating cancer is to a family, her actions and blatant lack of empathy proves otherwise.

In addition, I did not think it was appropriate for me to interject into family quarrels at the reunion; however, this is something that I feel strongly about. I have met Jaqueline and I have spoken to her on many occasions. In the very short time that I have gotten to know Jaqueline, I know and have empathy with the struggles she has caring for Nicholas. I felt that Dina’s interpretation of her nephew was callous and completely out of touch with reality. The only thing that keeps playing in my mind is, "You know nothing John Snow."  No, thank God, he is not hooked up to machines with cancer; however, what the Laurita family goes through is extremely difficult on a day to day basis that will continue on for a lifetime. It is emotionally and financially devastating. Although, Dina "visits" children with cancer, at the end of her visit she gets to go home, leaving it behind and goes on with her daily life. Since Dina does work with children with cancer, I pray that she can abstain from a self-absorbed lifestyle and become a loving, involved aunt.
