Quick, Lauren Manzo get some paper and start taking notes! I'm going to admit it right now: I'm not writing my Bravo blog all by myself this week! I'm actually going to turn it over to the viewers, the fans, the people who stick by all of us week after week, year after year, and to whom we owe everything, whether we always agree with them or not...
@ArleneTomasetti So far tonight we have heard @carolinemanzo &@kathywakile speak of fans as crazies. But they like the paychecks we generate!
Everyone was twittering about the reunion last night from Jersey Shore Deena to Eva Longoria and Glamour magazine! So I went through my Twitter timeline and pulled out the comments that best say what I would say. And I put them in little categories to make it easier for Melissa and Lauren and all the other ladies to read and save for the next reunion.
Oh, and in honor of reformed bully Perez Hilton, who I got to see at his last performance of Newsical with Dina this week, I've written captions on some of the photos from the reunion. Enjoy!
There is one thing that I hate to see is a spoiled child in a beauty shop running around doing what ever they want to do. And the parent saying stop stop and doing really nothing about it. So please if you want to get their hair done take them one at a time . Other people don't want to listen to your kids scraming all over the place.
ELEVEN MINUTES INTO THE SHOW AND U ALREADY SAY.. ITS NOT U DOING THE U BROTHER AND WIFE THERE ARE NO TALKING TO U... LOOK LIKE U STAY THE SAME...TO BAD CUZ ITS GETTING tfdvgg
I hate to be the one to tell you this Teresa but what you are doing and saying to many people along with the way your acting is just plain crazy and I for one hope and pray that when the new season starts they limit you being on air a lot, cause all this seems to be going to your head and it really shouldn't be cause you are not all that...One by one, you seem to be either doing away with, hurting people that will never have anything to do with you, lying to make someone else look bad, etc... before long their won't be anyone left in your life except the people that have to be there cause they don't have a choice about it and they really don't want to be there...
I hope your camera time is more limited this season. You ruin the show with your delusions, lies, and blatant manipulations. The other wives are more fun to watch. They just put their lives out there....good, bad, and ugly...without trying to backstab each other. They are not sick with jealousy. You should learn from them, Teresa. And one more thing.....they do not poison their own children's minds because of their sick jealousy. You are ruining your own little girl. Shame on you.
I am going to write this with the hope that at least one of the Housewives will read it.
I am not a big reality TV show fan, but when I started watching RHONJ, I couldn't stop. I didn't watch it just to see what kind of "drama" was going to happen, I watched it because I really felt bad about all the situations that everyone was put through. I wanted to see everyone come together and stop all of the nonsense. Which I am not so sure is going to happen now.
I am writing this on T's blog comments because what I am going to say refers to her too, but believe me it will be posted on every other blog also.
I want to start off by saying that I am so tierd of seeing everyone gang up on T. I know that certain people have their different opinons about that, and that's fine, I am just expressing mine. I do believe that T was bullied, but I also believe that there were others that were bullied also. I like T, and I think that she is a good person, but there is more than just one person to blame here. Everyone on this show is guilty of trashing someone, sometime through the show.
I am going to start with Jaq. I like her too, and I also think that she is a good person. There are just somethings that I really don't understand. Jaq doesn't like the fact that T talks about her husband or her, and says really mean things, but what makes it okay for you to do the same thing. You said on the reunion that you hope that T's husband goes to jail, you called T a bitch, and clearly a lot of other names, now what makes you any better?? I'm just saying don't get mad when T says something about your husband or you, when you have clearly done the same to her... IT DOESNT matter who said what first, you could have been the bigger person and just ignored it, but you couldn't because she really got to you and made you upset and you felt that you needed to defend yourself right? Well don't get mad when T does the same thing. I would also like to add that the clip at the Poshe Fashion show really got to me. The fact that you were texting someone who was also a friend of T's and talking about her back pissed me off. If you were really wanting to work things out with T, then why wouldn't you find her and pull her off to the side and ask her about it, instead of going around and telling other people about it when you don't even know what is the truth yourself. You may of heard it from a friend, and believe it but that doesn't always mean that it is true.
Next is Kathy.. I just really feel bad for you, because I feel like you are just thrown into the show, and that you really just don't know who's side you want to be on.. That's all I'm going to say about that.
Carolina! Oh Geezzee... I don't even know where to start with you. You said at the end of the Reunion that "one day we ALL will be sitting around, and say remember when" BUT YET you said that you would never have anything to do with T again, and you called her an "ugly person". So I am guessing that you just can't make up your mind either. It's funny that you said when Jaq and T were having their arguement that you didn't like drama but you went right out and got in the middle of it. You seem to do that a lot. Don't get me wrong, I also think that you are a good person, but you just need to get your shit straight. You get pissed at T for every little thing that she says wrong, but when you say something wrong that apparently you really didn't mean in the first place, no one brings it up.
Mel... You just need to STOP! Okay who really cares if you were a stripper or not.. I know what your thinking, "well apparently T does", and that may be true, but she isn't the only one that brings it up, she isn't the only person who talks about it. Apparently everyone on the show seems to think that is the best topic to talk about. If you weren't a stripper, then why in the HELL don't you quit talking about it. I have read thousands of adds saying, "I was never a stripper, T did that to try to break up my family.", and so on and so on. You get pissed and tell T to drop it and admit to what ever YOU think she has done wrong, but yet you are still talking about it. What kind of low life person are you to say that you are moving away because you don't want your kids going to school with her kids! You act like T's child has caused this whole arguement between y'all. Her child will grow up one day and say WOW why would my Aunt talk about me like that!! Another problem I have is when you were leaving the Poshe Fashion show you told your husband to yell at his Sister "shame on you"! No Mel!!! Shame on you. I don't care what kind of problems you have with T, and I understand that a Man is suppose to take up for his wife, but you shouldn't have said that. It really made you look bad. That to me looked like you instagating things. If you really cared about your Husbands feelings why would you tell him to say something like that to his Sister knowing that it would hurt him, even if he said it to hurt her.
I don't like the way that throughout the whole show it's been about what T has done to you and what T has said about you, and you don't even probaly remember half of the stuff you have said about her! You act like you haven't done anything wrong, and you have.
I want to write more but I already wrote a book. T I hope you see this, and watching you on the last reunion part 3, I really do feel for you, and I hope that things turn around for you. I can see that you are going through a lot, but just look on the brightside, and that goes for everyone.
teresa, your not being a true friend/sister-in law , how are you gonna set up your sister in law, you don't want joe with melissa thats why you did that , but it backfire on you tre, melissa called joe because she didn't have nothing to hide.
Jaq and Caroline are no friends of yours they knew about q setup the whole story with friends like that who needs friends
Teresa let's get real. All someone with any brains has to do is watch the finale show 2 times to know you were involved in the set up. Yes you acted like your heart was racing, HOWEVER... you were more interested in whether or not Melissa Knew the bald guy or not. You kept asking her. Then you made an idiotic comment about not knowing what Melissa did at night when she told you she was a teacher back then. Any teacher knows that any job that is held at night if working as a teacher has to be disclosed and trust me.. they would not go for Melissa being a stripper... it's called "moonlighting" and schools are very strict. Bar tending is a different story (you don't take your clothes off). I know because I was a teacher and a superintendent does have the right to not only know what other job(s) you hold.. they can fire you if they want over it. Look.. if you don't believe me.. ask any teacher.
Then you got upset when Melissa was calling your brother... if you hadn't done anything wrong... then you wouldn't have been so upset he was being called to come out there.
I don't know how your fans are so blind.. but they are. I was unsure of the whole thing at first because you had been getting along so well with Melissa.. then BAM.. out of nowhere this happens... so I watched the Poshe show again and it was clear as a Bell you were knowingly involved. And don't you see the problem isn't that you were involved... it's that you CANNOT tell the truth and that is why they are pulling away from you.. They have to protect themselves and their family from you. Anyone with any sense can see that. I was shocked that you did that after Napa and so can you imagine how Melissa feels? And Joey? They want you to stop this kind of stuff and live and let live.. leave Melissa alone. Leave their marriage alone. Life is hard enough. But you can't see that. You can never see when you do anything wrong and you did. That was just wrong on so many levels
Jacqueline is a joke. She got mad because Teresa won't tell her business to her. WHO DOES THAT!!!! Than she wanted to put on an act an start crying. Jacqueline two-faced,because she knew two weeks before the show that Kim D. was going after Melissa and she talking to Kim D EVERYDAY on the phone. You know she knew what was going to happen. What get me is that people say Teresa should have taken up for more, but I never saw Melissa telling people that's my sister in-law don't talk about her or my family. I saw Melissa bashing Teresa instead. Hats off to Teresa for standing up to all those fake two faced friends and family. I wouldn't want to be Kathy's cousin, sneaky people like her you have to watch. She so fake. God bless you Teresa, you have a mess on your hand. Team Teresa!!!!
Didn't Jacqueline get mad at Teresa for not confiding her "secrets" yet she claims to know a hell of alot of Teresas personal life??
Good thing ur not going tit for tat like those other ladies. I KNOW you take notes on the show, hell, I feel like I should be taking notes. Your answer depends on the context of the question. It seems its only okay if u do it.
Cant wait for the show "Survivor" to have a housewife edition... Or, Amazing Race, or, Big Brother. Andy..Make a call :)
take some good advice Theresa- We reap what we sow !! There is nothing more true in life. If you do underhanded , slimey things to people it will come back on you ten-fold. I have watched this happen over and over again. Change your ways girl before its too late. This advice goes for your family members to. The entire mess with you and your brother is a very sad state of affairs. LIFE IS TOO SHORT . I Hope the day does not come that the mean and hurtful things that this family has done to each other cannot be reversed. Stop the madness before its too late. Pray on it because clearly your entire family needs help and guidence. I will you all good luck, you will need it.
I commend you for standing your ground. I know that when people are ganging up on you there is no way to see what you are doing wrong. To me it seems as though you believe you only react after someone starts with you. Your family coming on the show to air you out made you feel betrayed because it's one thing to have problems off camera but literally to have half the world know your business on camera is humiliating. There intent was malicious and they have succeeded at making you look like the monster they say you are. However, I will never side with any of them because unlike others I have been watching and paying attention since the first airing of your family and the show they put on to guarantee a spot on the show was despicable. No matter what kind of problem I have with my sister in law I would NEVER draw a wedge between my husband and her. Family is family and if we was not to last she would still be there. Melissa is pretty but I see through all the Maybeline all the thank you Jesus's and all the phoniness. I don't blame you for not liking her not one bit. I seen her cattiness telling him to say "shame on you" and he obeyed. Your husband has his problems with Joe but at least he doesn't make you take sides. People need to re watch and see how everything is all about Teresa EVERYTHING. How can they call her so dumb but give her credit for being smart enough to manipulate them all? Seriously? Stop
@CRaziness I agree. When I saw Melissa telling Joe to say "shame on you" I knew Teresa was telling the truth. That scene really sickened me. Watching Caroline and Lauren adding fuel to the fire. If Caroline really wanted to take the high road and stay out of the Guidice/Gorga drama why is she constantly in Melissas ear telling her what Teresa said about her? Don't you think its funny how now everyone has a problem with Teresa after she is on the bestsellers list and Celebrity Apprentice. Looks like Jacqueline was talking about herself and her hateful castmates....they are green with envy not Teresa!!!
I think that Teresa does add fuel to the fire. She prob. stirrs the pot with Dina re: Caroline and Chris. If not why would Dina have talked about Caroline at the Fab.Party ??? Dina knew she would be hurting Caroline & Chris. What a shame Teresa doesn't want her brother and she is trying to keep Dina fm her family. All parties involved know what part they played in this....Dina is not innocent either, she is just less conspicuous.
murphy1 Tiasrose I wish Dina would sell her story to InTouych already. I am dying to know what is going on there! Much more interesting then Strippergate!
Teresa, I don't know how you do it. You are amazing. What are the odds that every body on the show hates you,but us. If you were bad, the viewers would all hate you and we love you. It is evident Caroline bullies you. She Makes snide remarks and judged you throughout the last season. She and Jacqueline ganged up on you with that silly tabloid story.She jumps in and enfuses any and every situation wher there is a difference of opinion against you. When someone works with others to exclude you, criticize you, encourage your family and friends to dislike you, encourages her family to attack you and broadside you,and who condemns you in public and in private, then I consider them bullies. Teresa,on the other hand, does not bully anyone. Nor, do we ever see or hear Teresa,on the show, ganginging up with others to encourage hatred. Sure she makes her feelings known one on one. These relatives of Teresa, could take a lesson from Carolyn's family.as she says "we are thick as thieves" and they stick together no matter what. Love you on the show, Teresa.
Joe Gorga was actually the one fun moment of the reunion. I actually do believe him when he says that everyone loves him. It is the only time anyone genuinely smiled.
@rnkat @gcvlmv he says awful things about his sister and talks to women like trash,everyone does not love we just enjoy being entertained by a clown.
FMQberry rnkat gcvlmv
You think Joe Gorga is the Clown??? Are you kidding me??? Are we even watching the same show here because I didn't see Joe Gorga calling his sister a C**T. That came out of her own husbands mouth. Joe Guidice made Teresa look like an Idiot!!!
Keep your head held high!! Not one of those women for ONE season could come to a reunion show knowing everyone was against them. You not only did it Once but Twice and you held your ground like the lady your are. Best of Luck to you and your family. If those ladies return, I will no longer watch this show.
@1fergie That is sad that someone should say a husband should call his wife names!!!
I didn't say Joe should call his wife names. What I said was she is all those names and more. Don't make stuff up or twist it to fit your defense of Teresa. You are bending the truth just like she does.
WOW...you have denied since the fashion show that you had any knowledge and/or any part of the set up at the Posche Event, what a lie. You knew Kim D was going after Melissa and you not only encouraged it, but you played a major part.
Good news? You can have more than one husband, so at least you got a good brother...treat him and his wife well and he will always be there for you and your girls.
Interesting because I had never seen the 'Christening' episode and finally had the opportunity to see it a few nights ago. Some things became interestingly clear based on the 'issues' Teresa and her brother were already having.
In my opinion, Melissa and her family (sisters and brother-in-law) seem to have a lot to do with Joe's strained relationship with Teresa. This is not to take away from Joe and Teresa's differences as siblings, but you can see from the 'Christening' episode and a few other episodes where Melissa's family feels pretty comfortable talking badly to and about Teresa and her husband. Teresa was treated VERY badly at that Christening and Melissa's sister did not hold back her ill-timed comments at the table. And did Melissa say anything to her sister? No!
Teresa must not like Melissa for a lot more reasons than we know. And while some of it may come across that Teresa is somewhat jealous of Melissa, I don't buy it. You can clearly see that Melissa's attempt to bring Joe and Teresa together is not authentic. As long as you have Joe appearing to be brainwashed by his wife and her family, there is litte hope for these families to come together.
@SarahP I am not sure but I think Melissa's sisters had heard T say a lot of bad crap about M and they said what they wanted. It sure is fine for Crazy T to run her mouth and I bet T had made M life miserable Maybe they had had enough! The show may have not been the right place but it happened.
getoutofhere I think he was mostly thinking about where he wanted to go to dinner and wasn't paying to much attention.
Teresa, I think you are a good person. It's sad to me that all of this with Caroline and Jaq started because of your cook book. Caroline to offense to something you meant as a joke. No matter how many times you appologise she won't accept it because she can't ever admit she was wrong. I think she is also jealous of your fame. She was very liked in the first few seasons but I think her true colors came through and people saw that. It's obvious to anyone watching that Melissa and Kathy were jealous of you and came on the show with an agenda. Why else would Bravo add both of them? Keep your chip up Teresa. As for you and your husband, I don't buy the story he gave about the phone call, but your marriage is your marriage.
@mrsjackson79 Caroline isn't wrong. How she feels is how she feels - there's no wrong or right there. Teresa's apology is a joke because she keeps saying she's sorry if Caroline got hurt. What she needs to say is that she's sorry it came across the wrong way because she meant it to be a joke. It was never meant to be hurtful. But since Teresa deals with things like a 4 year old, she will never understand the difference. Just like she'll never understand the all of NJ isn't jealous of her.
Pfth! Only presented that way, but true colors came through, just like Teresa's
Caroline and Chris lied last night on the reunion about Teresa wrecking their relationship with Dina. If you follow Dina's twitter account you'll get the real truth about that. Also, Dina pointed out that the Fabellini party happened AFTER the Posche Fashion Show. When she was speaking about family, she was talking to Teresa about everything that has happened between Teresa, Joe and Melissa NOT Caroline and Chris. Dina has stated several times that her problems with Chris and Caroline have NOTHING to do with Teresa. Also, I do believe Teresa knew something was going to happen at the fashion show but she didn't know exactly what the plan was. I think Kim USED Teresa to get back at Melissa since she knew that they had conflict. Teresa should own up to all the negative things she said about everybody on the show but they need to own up to the negativity and their faults too. Teresa strikes me as someone that's in la la land (even though I love her) and I don't think she'd say things about people unless she is provoked! Also, she and her husband need to pay off their bills, so why is the cast hating on her for getting paid to do some magazines. She needs the MONEY even though all of her other businesses are successful. Just saying!
But he DID say that, based on what he saw with Jaq & teresa's friendship, that he believes Teresa was a factor in Dina not speaking with Caroline Jaq or Chris. Of COURSE she's a factor! The 3 people Dina's not speaking to happen to be on a show with teresa. Common sense tells me she has something to do with it.
Alycat9705 fuhgeddaboutit Maybe its the horrible way they treat Theresa that turned Dina off
fuhgeddaboutit But Dina said he did feel that way! Also, Caroline said that just to save face because she knows she looked bad all season but if you watch she blames Teresa for her problems with Dina throughout the season. Also, why would he be hurt? It's not affecting him if Dina goes out to support her friend
reesaburns They have also both indicated that they do believe that Teresa adds fuel to the fire with Dina and continues to drive a wedge. Based on how they perceive Teresa to behave. It may not be true but that is what they believe. If you remember the story was that after the deck "blow out" Teresa went straight to Dina's house. How do you think that conversation went?
gcvlmv reesaburns too bad. Teresa and Dina are long time friends. She has to give that friendship because Caroline is a bully?
dexter.pie reesaburns No, not at all. But to think that she never says anything negative about Caroline or Jac to Dina is a stretch.
gcvlmv I never said that she didn't. I said that she probably says stuff about them because they say it to her first. They PROVOKE her and she lashes out. I do not believe Teresa is innocent but I know they other cast members are guilty of wrongdoing also!
dexter.pie gcvlmv reesaburns
no way tre and Dina are friends Dina IS THE youngest girls god mother.
Boy am I glad that's over! My take on this mess is T was called out on everything and the others not so much and they made each other look good... Jackie, is so bitter or just on something, something really strong... Caroline realized how bad she looked all season and did what she needed to, to redeam herself... Kathy is not as nice as we thought... Melissa NOT all about family... And half of you people posting are wissie washie... I love T, I hate T, I use to like you but now I hate you...
Did anyone notice how Teresa made Melissa and Kathy move from their seats when she decided to sit with them again??? She is so delusional about being a star that instead of sitting on the empty spot, she made the girls move so she can sit next to Andy again!!!! lol PATHETIC
