Garden Statements

Bravotv.com's Associate Producer thinks all those cocktails were well deserved.

on Jul 29, 20130

After Dr. V united the Gorgas and the Giudices, her healing powers must have been tapped out, because she hightailed it out of there leaving Kathy out in the cold. (Literally.)

Guess she's on her own as far as patching things up with Teresa.

Luckily Kathy and Teresa were able to apologize to each other and move forward as well. So basically this happened:

(Just insert Kathy rather than Melissa.)

And with the last relationship repaired, it was time to party!

I am hoping someone from Bravo sees this and cares... I think some of what goes on in some of the is episodes is VERY contrived! I did wonder if Teresa thought to invite Caroline to the retreat because it was Teresa's idea she needed assistance. Or, was it BRAVO's idea, to instigate drama The scene with Joe and Teresa in the tub and the room service person arrived; that looked very FAKE! Please don't insult our intelligence in such a way. If it is scripted, we can watch better written shows!!

Mellisa was funny and in no way mean. Most of you on this blog have probably indulged a time or two yourselves. no harm done.

I don't understand how consuming alchol from the time you wake up to through out the day is going to help this family heal. LAY OFF THE BOOZE and be level headed & sober; SPEAK WITH YOUR HEART PEOPLE!

Gee Melissa, Take it slow...Slow it down.  We don't want the next episode to be filmed at an AA Meeting.  Also,

Boooze will dehydrate your skin and make you  look much older.  You and Teresa will be a strong union in the future and no one will be able to come between you.    Good luck!

Can I get a "WOW" for this whole weekend?  I am so impressed with ALL OF THESE GUYS that I could almost burst!  Seriously, I had to watch the episode five times to take in all of the maturity!  And even when Melissa was sloppy drunk, it was so cute that her husband defended her by saying, "she's drunk."  Plus nobody ended up fighting even though they were wasted!  And Andy was right.... Joe Giudice was the voice of reason.   As Lord Crawley would say, "I am flabbergasted."

I'm calling this Victim 2.0.

Add too much vodka and then say whatever you want to at the dinner table to those you are still mad at!

Then have your husband say leave you alone because you are drunk?

Alcohol can bring people together or rip lives apart. I don't think glorifying people getting plastered is a good thing because it could have just as easily gone the other way. I'm just happy that everybody kept their happy asses home and did NOT drive. I'm proud of both Joes, Teresa, and Melissa for giving peace a chance and for actually taking some responsibility for their parts. Everybody's hands are dirty in this. KUDOS to Rich and Rosie for keeping it real in a hilarious way. You really helped keep the stress levels down. Of course we can't forget Carolyn and the incomparable Dr. V. for their wonderful contributions. The hard part now is the upkeep.

@D-Ann kathy is an adult and older than melissa.. you cannot say that melissa had influence over kathy... as we learned in the previous season, teresa and kathy's issues were long... melissa didn't have anything to do with it... she (kathy) is not a little girl who can be influenced by others... she has always wanted to talk to her cousin and explain her feelings.... it has nothing to do with melissa. Stop blaming melissa for everything and the reasons why people are mad with teresa!

 I'm saying that this has been seen & done.  I.e. Kim Richards, Taylor Armstrong......and there is nothing entertaining  or enjoyable watching a "drunk woman".  How boring.  Besides, according to Melissa's sister, Melissa "rarely drinks".  Actions speak louder than words!
