Garden Statements's Associate Producer thinks between the tap routine and that colorful coat, Audriana was this week's breakout star.

Clearly things are going well for the Gorga/Giudice clan. So well that everyone is universally happy for Joe Gorga getting a billboard deal with Sizzle Tans.

What's Sizzle Tans you say? And why would it be an issue? Cast your mind back to Teresa's commercial debut:

Teresa shares the genesis of her involvement with Sizzle Tans in her blog. (Let's just say it wasn't her proudest moment.)

Hence everyone's worry that Teresa gets miffed that Joe's copying her. But luckily they all have a good laugh instead, because honestly how can you get mad about this?

Although why they didn't use a shot of Joe Gorga doing push-ups with a model on his back is beyond me. One thing has become clear: the family that tans together, stays together.

We also had the now annual Wakile family outing to a lesbian bar, which is always a delight. This time Rosie traded in the Cubbyhole for trendy new spot The Dalloway, but quite frankly I think Rosie's more of a Cubbyhole kind of girl. This new place was just a little too uptight for our beloved Rosie.

Also I am slightly incredulous that none of the Jersey crew was aware what D.T.F. stands for. Have they never watched Jersey Shore? Joe Gorga went as Snooki for Halloween!

Oh, and Melissa had only one thing to say about her impromptu car rapping in her blog this week: YOLO!

In Manzo news, Albie was having some serious first child problems being worried about his businesses and trying to make sure he live up to his dad. As a first child myself, I can say this comes with the territory. Luckily Caroline was there to remind him that he needs to take it easy sometimes. And also that he needs to get used to the fact that his parents will always be critical. Finally, a parent who can be honest about it!
