Jersey is full of talented guys -- guys who share history lessons, guys who are savvy businessmen, guys who are secret softies. However none of them seem to be able to solve the issues with Teresa and Joe. Enter the most unlikely mediator in the world, Rosie.
While you marvel at the powers of Rosie, let's look back at the most memorable moments from this week's episode.
No. 3 - A Cannoli Runs Through It
Mixing business with pleasure seems to be cramping Rich and Kathy's style. Who knew collaborating on the cannoli kit would cause so much strife? I think these two will make it work though, they're just having a series of misunderstandings. Rich likes to do things immediately, but Kathy's more of a thinker. Once they get on the same wavelength (or resign themselves to working like the odd couple), they'll be a cannoli dream team.
I'm just hoping that the next iteration of the cannoli kit comes in a giant cannoli. Fingers crossed!
Side Note: I think Kathy learned the importance of throwing Rich a compliment about his outfit every now and again.
Let's all say a collective prayer that neither Joe nor Teresa help the kids with their homework. I can see it now:
Juicy: George Washington? He was this tall guy. I think he was British 'cause he had bad teeth. Anyway, he got this little army together and did some stuff and they named a bridge after him.
Tre: OMG, Joe! I'm married to Wiki...what is it called? Like an encyclopedia, but on the computer. Gia probably knows, Gia! come here and think for me.
Joes history lesson was the funniest thing that has happened on this show in three years. My husband and I laughed sooo hard. I remember when lighthearted things like this would happen all the time. I miss how entertaining this show used to be. Now it's gotten so violent and dark.
This is (just) my opinion about the Jersey Girleys... I always thought Jackie was a brave, bubbly girl, until the whole Danielle thing, combined with her personal issues just tipped her over to a point of almost needing help, leaving room for Caroline to take over parts of her thinking process. Speaking of which, up to the fourth season I had become such an admiror of Caroline. Her family values and the way her kids set such an unprecedented example without effort in tolerance and closeness made me wish for a mother like her. Now though I feel like I don't know who she is anymore. As positive as she can come across, the flipside and stubbornness make her as unattractive as she once was attractive. So confusing. Especially when her anger is directed to someone who in my opinion is so truely as naive as Teresa. Her naiveness is why it's so hard to watch her stearing all the anger towards Teresa, being close to cruel. Don't get me wrong, Teresa can hold her own yet I just don't see conscious malice in her. I may be wrong, but I don't think it's there. on the flipside concerning her, once she understands or assumes she's being attacked, it's like she sees red and it becomes impossible to reason with her. Actually, it might not be easy in general, but still. I don't believe she's capable of manipulation and think Caroline just wanted a reason to get rid of her without admitting she just didn't have the patience. Especially her timing during the rv trip was just wrong and disgusting. And Jaqueline was certainly not honoust then, see she comes up with a bs argument during the reunion about overhearing something which is just contradictory to it all. Just say it girl, you lost patience for her and hated the Danielle thing. Don't be a hypocrite about the magazines thing. Say what bothers you or admit you're not brave or patient enough for this relationship. If I was Teresa I wouldn't understand either. The Joes... I don't know I don't mind them though I could do without the disrespectful language, but I guess I care about them as much as hey care about most things. Joey seems to have a good heart though but reasoning with him... see Teresa.
I love Rosie soooo much. I wish she was my daughter. I'm Itialian so we will have the same blood. Rosie is just like our family, we are a mess with everyone talking at tha same time and no one listening. LOL.. Ohhhh Juciy Joe, I saw the way u were counting on ur fingers and I fully agree. It must be Itialian thing.....
The more I see of Teresa and Joe together, the more I understand why they got together in the first place. They are both very dim bulbs. I can imagine that she makes him feel good because she is even dumber than he is. She did not know who Napoleon was, and he had a weird version. OMG....hilarious!
Plus they both lie like the devil, talk about people behind their backs, are snobs the list goes n and on
That was CLASSIC Jersey Italian man and woman. Couldn't get any more real than that. Remember Sylvester Stallone? Yo Adrianne. LOL
they should wite a book together, how to speak englis the New Jersey way, not everyone from that state talks that way most have manners, but Joe and Teresa need some more book learnin, soon.
Joe could also give a class on how to count days out, on your fingers, the wrong way, and teresa could help....
I couldn't believe how well the Rosie/Teresa sit down went! It's because they are both full of hot air and so much alike. They understand & respect each other! For the 1st time in a very, very long time I actually agreed with Teresa when she said, Rosie is a pussycat! It's a good thing to go in like a lion & come out like a lamb. As a result they are all going to seek Holistic Therapy. It seems to me, the swollen hand was worth it!!
I'm all for a Gorga/Guidice/Wakile holistic retreat too.
But why include the Manzo/Laurita clan???
So. Tired. Of. The. Gorga-Giudice. Feud. PLEASE...enough already. Is there nothing else going on with ANY of these people?
What amazes me is the money these no talent people are making!!!!
Great combination of not well educated and no talent. But they are on national TV and have an audience. Shame on us....lol
I don't get the snotty comments about the Lauritas that I've seen on here lately. They are going through a difficult time. If you've ever undergone some heavy family issue, you'd understand why they're not a barrel of laughs right now. Their story is relevant to a lot of people right now. If you don't want to watch, dvr the episodes so you can pick and choose. It was great to see Joe come-to a little bit with regard to the Melissa/Teresa feud. It always seemed like he never realized that his wife had a heavy hand in keep the fight alive and kicking. Hopefully now that the blinders are off he can take a more active role in repairing the relationship.
I understand that because of what Jacqueline is going through, her attitude is not going to be all "jolly". But her attitude towards Teresa is just downright ugly and mean and that is such a drastic change from what the viewers are use to seeing. And I do not think her issues with her son should be an excuse for her behavior when it comes to Teresa. In my opinion, she has become a mean girl and I miss the old Jacqueline!
elicat njmomof3 Jacqueline has been nasty too Teresa ever since Tre wouldn't tell her everything going on with her personal life. The way Jaqueline treated Tre was terrible. She screamed at her because she wouldn't tell her "everything".
@REBECCA9247 @elicat Good point. I kind of forgot about that whole deck smack down -- which was flat out strange. Let's face it -- if a friend, close or otherwise, doesn't want to discuss something, you have to just respect that & let it go.
Yes. And that's when their friendship started to unravel! Tre did not want to talk about her personal issues on camera (that was obvious) and Jacqueline kept pushing it. And then, of course, Caroline had to put her two cents in! I felt so bad for Teresa!
@Trippin-it @elicat I agree with you. I think I'm sensitive because I just went through some heavy family "stuff." The thing is, when you're in the midst of it you don't realize how low your tolerance for bs has gotten. You're too busy dealing with the situation at hand. I wonder what goes through her head as she sees these episodes for the first time? Maybe a different show/venue would be better, but I bet she wouldn't have signed on for the season if she realized it was going to bring out this side of her.
njmomof3 "snotty" is your opinion and others have their opinions. Joe should have never started the feud and keep fueling the fire to begin with.
I think Teresa one goal in her life is to see Melissa and Joe get a divorce, you think you do not have a brother, if it ever happens you will be cast out and your friends will be Kim d and Linda, that is it.
Just so clearly mean. Judge not. He's just a guy living his life. Hopefully your dire prediction will not come true and they will love their Daddy, with all his faults, forever.
@zocola @Koopla You can't help but love the guy when he's hanging out with his daughters. It's really sweet to watch.
Emmalisa OMG - I can't stand her angry tirades - I feel like she's always showing off for the cameras. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
Teresa should have married someone smarter. He just talks about such stupids things. I see why her brother hates him.
Joe Gorga is blind when it comes to Melissa. AND, he needs to stop wearing those stupid stocking caps!!
Donna-in-CA Exactly--his ass and more. I thought he was auditioning for porn when he got to Calif instead of testing wine.
his truth, which most of the time are lies, heputs down everyone who Teresa use to talk to except Kim D and Linda, I rather have no friends, than have friends that start trouble, why was Kim D at the birthday party she does not have young children , she was there to start trouble for Teresa miss inocent, what is the diffrence when Melissa went to see her father-in-law, she went, so she got the days mixed, have you not got things mixed up, you do not bring that up at a a family gathering, Teresa is a mean woman, her goal get Melissa out.
patty.mccabe.12 That girl has DEEP issues, and they don't have anything to do with Teresa. Jacqueline is very unstable!!!!
Jacqueline appears to be completely unhinged this season when it comes to Teresa, nothing has changed for her since the reunion. I am sure her behind the scenes plotting continues along with her rambling blogs and twittering.
gessie Jac is always unhinged and crying, crying,crying about everything in her life. I do not like Chris but i am not speaking personally but fact is he has 3 children--Jac is the biggest and demands the most attention.
You must not really see the real Juicy. He has human faults. His family loves him and that is what counts.
