Like every Housewife in every city, I think filming the reunion is one of the worst parts of our job. It's a long, long day, it always gets ugly, it's hard to sit through and even harder to watch. At least this year I knew what I was walking into: I knew the other cast members, even my family, were going to band together to bash me. Last year was a total shock. This year was just sickening and sad.
I think one big difference between New Jersey and the other cities though is that most of the women on our show prepare for weeks for the ambush. They write little notes and look over every little thing I ever wrote. They're so desperate to make me look bad. Here's the thing: I don't care. I know who I am and I don't need to prove it to any of them. And I'm certainly not going to waste my off-camera, family time looking up words in the dictionary and making obsessive lists about them. For one, I'm not obsessed with any of them. If none of them had showed up at the Borgata, I think me and Andy could have still filmed a good show. For two, I'm not desperate to prove them all wrong, because they prove it all by themselves in every blog and every interview. I don't have to dig all the way down to vocabulary words (and PS for the millionth time: spell check! It's not hard!) because I've got nothing else. Their lies and contradictions are right there in black-and-white and there are far too many to list!
I do never know what crazy angle the other women are going to take at me, so my strategy is to sit there and be as calm and mature as I can. As calm and mature as anyone can filming all day with 10 people coming at you! I'm not an actress, I don't practice in the mirror at night, so my reaction isn't always perfect. But I'm not perfect. I'm just me.
It's a sad thing that Teresa doesn't have a clue...I saw her "one on one" with Andy and she's just as irritating as ever....
It's clear that Teresa has deep personal issues. It's not possible for one woman to have fractured relationships with everyone she comes into contact with.
She has single-handedly devastated her relationship with her brother and her sister in law, they may never make amends and she doesn't care.
Friction may be great for ratings, but she is destroying whole families. She should get help - off of the show.
It's clear that Teresa doesn't write her blogs. She doesn't have a teaspoon full of brain. If she had a thought she wouldn't know what to do with it. I guarantee you she would waste it on putting together one of those frightening Halloween costumes...I mean wonderful outfits, she puts on her monsters she calls daughters. She had the nerve to try to give that crap away to the people of Hurricane Sandy - REALLY!!! Gold Lame Jegging's and pink feather jackets, leopard sweat suits. Real people don't dress like they just stepped out of Elvis's wet dream!
Teresa, I never liked you and now that you're choking on your own Kool-Aid, I like you even less. God is not a vengeful God, but there is always Karma and honey it's whipping your ass. Thanks to your ever faithful Joe, you'll be working 7 days a week for years to come to pay off his debts, and your shopping spree debts, and you smiled like a brain dead baboon when he called you a C*&T to his goombata. You give new meaning to stupid.
Tell us Teresa, spell Napalm? lol you big Dummy!!
OMG!! TEDDI..........LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! YOU'VE WRITTEN THE BEST COMMENTS EVER!
Teresa you are really sad and a disgrace as a person. You have a lot to learn in life. Your this way because you have always been an entitled little girl that grew up with a lot of attention not learning the real values in life that make us worthy as adults. It's get ahead, be the best at no cost. When Melissa came into your brother's life you had competition and how you treat her and others is all there for everyone to see. Everyone loves her and your brother. People see what a loser husband your married to you, who cheats on you, treats you like crap. Kathy would be on your team just because your family but you think your better than all of them. Your not a good person and it shows on National TV.
Teresa is the biggest piece of crap liar out there... Five women against one speaks VOLUMES, don't you think? Teresa's life is a TOTAL & COMPLETE LIE, FROM THESE WOMEN TO HER HUSBAND, TO HER BROTHERS AND HIS FAMILY!!!!!
Teresa I think that you a great. melissa is just jelly, and so is kathy. I feel like you should press charges aginst rosie for all the threats that she made. It was sickening to watch all the other ladies just gang up on you like they did but I must say that you pulled through it very well. But you done the best thing. I really hope that you get your own show. you deserve it.. love you
I've been watching from the start and you were my fave the queen of opulence but you have to admit you are the queen of denial, girl you never own anything...BOO!!
Your whole life is a contradiion. Everything you say YOU do. seriously some one SHOULD be writing ur blogs.
The whole family drama being played out on national tv is just sad.. I think we all can relate maybe not on the same level, but on the level of families hurting and broken. Teresa has an agenda, Melissa has an agenda.. every person sitting on those couches has an agenda. It's called greed or why else would you stay on board while your lives are being drug through the media mud for fames sake.
Look nobody on here can deny Mel and Kathy came on board to bring Teresa drama, why else would Bravo bring them on the show.. Neither lady had a story line worth investing in, so without Teresa there would be no story in this case.. I will give Teresa That.. but, Bravo knew what they were doing too.
I wish first that Teresa would just own it and move on... Kathy and Melissa own it again and move on... Nobody is right, nobody is wrong every one of you have a valid point.. It was fun for the fans to see you guys loving one another and getting along during the RV trip. Hope we can get back to that again... Would be nice to see your family team up and fight together instead of against each other for a change..
Hualani70NO ONE on these shows has "story line".. least of all these uncultivated women. Please..
Melissa and Kathy came on the show because Bravo wanted them on the show. Everything is not about Teresa, you know. What Teresa feared most was that people who knew her intimately for years might tell the real truth about how devious and jealous she is. That is not destroying Teresa, that is simply telling the God's honest truth.....something Teresa needs to acquaint herself with. The show will be better off without Teresa, because we will not be subjected to her constant sick jealousy ruining every event.
@rosyposy yeah that's what I said! To expose Teresa further in the aftermath of Danielle exposing her at the reunion! It's a storyline that made for good TV! Again if it were not for Teresa they would have no purpose to be on the show! Facts are facts! I never said Teresa was not at fault I was merely making a point! As I stated, it's sad and unfortunate all the way around and it would be nice if the families could unite and squash it all! It was fun watching them all together! It's time!
It is so sad to see someone like Teresa who is willing to destroy lives and hurt her family and children over pure jealousy. Melissa is beautiful, well off, kind, people like and respect her, she is talented, she has beautiful children and most of all she has a husband who adores her. My heart goes out to Teresa.
" sit there and be as calm and mature as I can." Seriously, watch yourself, completely screeching over the top.
You really ned to sit back a see your self and ur husband on tv he dont even speak right! and you did this to your self !!! its a sad story and btw you shouldnt make fun of peoples weight!!! and u had stuff done to your self! idk how you can look at ur self everyday.
Teresa, just stop. you look like a fool. Face it you can't admit to anything so so sad. Rethink your life and get some help and kick your husband out the door he is gross. He treats you like trash!!!!
I say Bless Teresa's little heart, she got lost some where along the way and now she can't find her way back form all the BS. She let the show go to her head and then she did not want to share the spot light with any of her family members. She is a very pretty lady so I don't understand why she is threatened by Melissa, they are both gorgeous women and should enbrace that not try to rip each other to shreads.
Oh my! If that is acting mature and calm, I'd hate to see what Teresa acts like when she is immature and eractic. Most of the time I don't even hear what she is saying when she comes back at people. Instead, I hear her say, "I know you are, but what am I." I don't understand why anyone tries to reason with Teresa. She clearly doesn't want to see anyone else's point of view, so why bother. The best way to handle her is to just ignore her. That would really drive her crazy because she likes a lot of attention.
It's very sad to see the person Teresa has turned out to be. I think her marriage is holding on by a thread. Too bad she doesn't realize that she doesn't need him. He's a sinking ship and she should grab those precious children and row away in a life boat.
shopaholicinidaho Teresa has made herself the other woman. Joe's affections are long gone. What man calls his WIFE such a wretched name. Teresa didn't even seem to mind. I would have taken my husband to the school of Lorena Bobbit!
Wow..is all I can say! You should be ashamed! Not sure who is worse you or your verbally abusive husband! I cant imagine what life s like when there are not cameras around. He is truly a vile man who treats his family terrible. I could never watch him another season it's a train wreck!! Love Kim D admitting the truth. You should be ashamed! We now know you have no one to blame but yourself!! Very disappointing and sad what you have become!!
Tsk tsk.... if she never called Melissa Stripper...why then call her " You learned a lot from that Strip Club" hmmmmm was a fan of Teresa but man these past two years maybe the fame gotten to her head....
melissa, jaq, and caroline are all jealous and upset because their loved ones, dina and joe, still love you and want a relationship. fight for your family. not against them. love each other. and move on. just stop fighting and screaming, no more. no more defensive, you have nothing to defend. you all messed up, accept that as a whole, and DO NOT focus on the details anymore. PAST has passed. For the sake of your parents and your children and their cousins.. ask for forgiveness, give forgiveness, and accept that each one of you is different more than you are alike, and stop judging one another. anything is possible, ever relationship can be mended. so forget your pride, leave your ego at home, get your parents in the car, and go over to your brothers house, and only say things you mean, and with kindness. forget the public, forget the media, build your relationship back on your own terms. be smart, be real, be honest. after you do all that, the there is no reason anyone should hate on you, and if they do, allow them to.. just let go, and stop fighting it. the end.
Teresa u can never take blame for your actions.... u act like your so perfect! as for Joe he makes me sick...he is a liar,cheater and a poor excuse for a man...u think your so smart.then y r u so blind ,when it comes to hm? open your eyes ,him calling u names, u need a reality check girl......
Uh Oh! Teresa didn't say stripper. Once again she blames rumors. That is how she denies things. Rumors are the culprit.
One thing stood out to me when they were all talking about problems with their siblings on the show . Chris was saying Joe Go. said very nice things about Teresa, and he knows he loves her, but something happened along the way to their relationship. Teresa's simple two word response spoke volumes. "The wife". She resents her brother's marriage. She did not want to share his affection with another woman. I think she could not accept what she perceived as a threat to her being closest to him. It is a different relationship, sister and wife, but Teresa likes to be first.
It is just sad to sit there and act like she is perfect does Teresa know or even remember that she is on a reality show I know she notice the cameras are all around here how could she still say its not true, I know she has air in her head but really.....that much????
Love you Teresa! You are better off without any off them!! Their true colors have sure been exposed this season and it ain't pretty! I'm glad that Kim D clarified that you were NOT involved in the Angelo situation.
AHA moment for you T lovers? Teresa knew and was involved in the set up. What I've waited all season to hear!
chickadeeeeee eieioh Teresa WAS involved, she might not have known exactly what was the 'sting', but she WAS involved in that 'something was going down' - she admitted it ! She should have gotten a clue after the spa 'incident' - I truly believe she did know, for some reason she was being protected at the reunion show. There was much more to what was happening at the fashion show than what we are being told. Teresa is NOT innocent. I watched and have watched since the beginning. Teresa is jealous about anyone and everything, and an extremely insecure person. All others on the show are not innocent when it comes to creating drama and conflict either throughout the season, each had their moment....but as to Melissa - Teresa was just waiting for something. Re-watching the entire season and the one before it...you will see Teresa's comments...always degrading comments against Melissa unless it served her to be more 'pleasant'. Everything Teresa does serves a specific reason to promote herself. She is NOT a victim from anything the other women did...she had a part of it all - if she is a victim it is because of her 'husband'...he's a piece of work! Teresa has an agenda and most of her agenda plays to needing attention...she played her 15 min of fame very well. I feel so sorry for her kids.
Kim D. is trying to straddle the fence, it seems. Always thinking business. Still, she admits Teresa knew Melissa was going to be targeted,and after what Teresa heard in the salon, she had to know what the subject matter was going to be. Teresa's screeching denial does not obliterate the obvious.
I believe you need to rewatch it. Kim said it and them took it back. Then she reworded it. She said she knew that something was going down with Teresa. She had to know it had everything to do with that guy. Come on. You're sounding like Teresa.
chickadeeeeee eieioh Maybe YOU need to rewatch! Teresa knew there would be something happening to Melissa that night, she was in on it. She CLAIMS she didnt know it was about Melissa being a stripper, (which I think is B.S.) but none the less, she knew something would happen to her that night. Teresa is a LIAR!!
chickadeeeeee jenniferlee3336 Chick, do you seriously, I mean really seriously think that T was not involved???? The salon was the preview, T ALWAYS has her hair and makeup done at home, why that day did she chose to go with Kim? I don't care how much I would dislike my sister-in-law, if I knew someone was going to blindside them, and I knew about it, I would warn her of what was going to happen. To me Teresa knowing about it and not doing anything to stop it is as bad as the entire set up.
when r u going to start living in the real world and not the la la land that u r in?
allthisnlegstwo LOL I spoke too soon and should have read your comment since I basically just repeated it. Seriously what is up with this woman? She really is in lala land!!!!! I fear for her
