Wyatt Webb, Equine Therapist, is my new favorite person. I mean look at this guy:
He is like a tough love/psychic Kenny Rogers.
Some people had trouble opening up and getting Wyatt's horse to lift its hoof. Case in point Melissa, who thought that doing "the Rosie walk" would help.
As Rosie herself pointed out, that is most certainly NOT a Rosie walk.
But Wyatt did manage to get most of the Jersey crew to open up, including one very surprising and moving reveal from Al Manzo about past abuse and getting Joe Giudice to admit he's afraid about his legal issues. And if he can get those two to open up, you know this guy is good.
We've rounded up all the biggest moments from equine therapy here (accompanied by some beautiful pictures of horses for your enjoyment).
And remember: "The more vulnerable you can be, the better. Everytime."
I actually learned something from watching this episode of the RHNJ, Wyatt made me understand more clearly the behaviors we sit and watch. I really liked his work.
Wyatt please be at the reunion, and put Melissa in her place a few more times.. so awesome loved this show. It was by far the best one on N.J house wives
Big apology.......apparently I typed the wrong name of the therapist. Wyatt Webb. No disrespect intended.
Loved this episode in that we could really see the depth of emotion and maybe even willingness for growth from Caroline, Rosie, Al, Chris, Jaqueline, Rich, and Kathy. This was interesting to me and this was real to me. I find that I am either deleting and not watching, or fast-forwarding through almost all of the RHW shows. Too much drama, and not "fun" drama either. But this episode brought me back in. I actually think RHWNJ could take off, but in an entirely different direction than the Gorga/Giudice train its currently on.
I love Wyatt too, such an insight, and he doesn't pull back is punches. Want to see more of him.
This show was great! Wyatt Webb was awesome to watch. Such quiet strength and dignity. Unaffected by the BS on some of their boots.
Melissa is a complete ass for making fun of that whole thing.
That strut for the camera the second time, just to make sure it was filmed was pathetic.
And I'm glad he called her out on it.
I'd love to see Melissa have to spend 30 minutes in a room with that guy.
I'm glad to find out that Teresa was able to lift the horse's foot - even tho they edited that out.
So, the only two that couldn't.... Melissa and Joey.... go figure!
Please Bravo - send all your RH casts to Mirival - they all need it!
Amen and thank you Wyatt! Your work is incredible to watch! This crew laughed at the other therapy exercises but you finally got through to them! Albert allowed everyone to have a better understanding of why he is the way he is at times. He has to be so disappointed that his adult children are basically enabled entitled slackers and are still sucking his retirement fund dry! The poor man is exhausted with no rest in sight.
From the previews for next week, it looks like we are going back to bashing Teresa and holding her once again accountable for the messes her brother and sister in law created. Teresa tried last season and again this season to go the united family front route with Melissa and was willing to go to the sources with her to confront and to stop those pesky "blast from Melissa's past rumors"! Please Bravo, cut viewers a break and end this three season ugly effort to grab Teresa's star away from her! You can't make viewers like who you want them to like no matter how hard you try or how "creative" your editing is done.
Loved Wyatt. He got every one of them figured out within seconds.
Starting to understand the Melissa hate.
When it was brought up that Kathy deserves more appreciation,she was reluctant to portray herself as needy. But what I couldn't understand, was when Teresa called it Kathy's"Marsha Marsha Marsha" moment and made fun of it.Obviously, it was a Brady Bunch reference, but could someone please explain what Teresa meant by that remark? Plus, this was also the worst impression that I'd ever had of Melissa.
bravolurker Jan Brady was always jealous of Marsha (they were sisters on the show). Jan would complain Marsha gets what she wants and would say, "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!", like Jan would be saying what about me, me, me..... Kathy is like Jan, but in a downlow, backstabbing kind of way...
i try to like kathy but i see her like a bitter wallflower, jealous that she can't stand out as much as rosy or teresa
I too was disturbed by Teresa's response to Kathy, she seems to be even angrier with her. Teresa seems to be making an attempt with everyone but Kathy. I never understood Teresa's extreme resentment of Kathy (and Rich). Is it the friendship with the Gorga's. Or I read that every housewife on the show is earning the same salary, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
Could it possiblty be because Kathy allows her husband to bash Tre and her family unmercifully. If I had a cousin like that I would be mad with her as well.
Who wouldn't love Wise Wyatt & his talking horse?! LOL! He was so right on with everyone, but I especially loved the way he pegged Melissa! I had thought she surely realized what he was saying to/about her, until, of course, her TH when she so humbly whined to the camera how badly her feelings get hurt cause she tries so hard with Teresa, bla, bla, bla ...Gurl Please!!! What I dearly loved the very most in this though, was the pure honest, yet sincerely inadvertent giggle that escaped Jo Guidice when Wyatt told her "There's a difference between being nice & being manipulative." Yep, gotta love Wyat! I did appreciate that Joey asked Teresa for help though & am so glad to find out that she did succeed with the hoof. Learning of that, Caroline's TH comment comparing her to Melissa is confusing.
@Lyndi1 Caroline likes to pretend that she is very wise. She knew that Teresa lifted the horse's leg. Anyone can see Teresa and Melissa are as different as night and day. They are both pretty and flashy but Teresa is all about her girls and Melissa is all about Melissa.
Equine therapy is a highly specialized and effective therapy modality. Webb is obviously a very good therapist. This only highlighted how disturbed both Teresa and Melissa are (twins under the skin). When even Juicy Joe was able to show some insight, Teresa and Melissa look even worse. It was sad that they were so utterly unable (or unwilling) to utilize such a wonderful opportunity.
Teresa actually did overcome her fear of the horse and got him to lift his leg - it was edited out but with social media piercing the fourth wall - the truth eventually comes out..
WCW mll50 It was edited out according to Teresa. Has anyone else of the cast substantiated that???? Not yet................
Golfer00 WCW mll50 I'm pretty sure they would have been all over Twitter about it if it wasn't true. Not to mention she would be attacked about it at the reunion.
Rosie's part was the best. I love Rosie. She is genuine, a good person and just lovable. When she said that she didn't know if she deserved the love, I cried. It hit very close to home for me...I wanted to just reach out and hug her. I hope she finds a woman worth her salt and they create a beautiful life together. Rosie, above many in that family, deserves this.
Nastybaby The more I listen to what Rosie will open up and say, the more I 100% believe Kathy was not accepting of her for many years.
pat.cary1 LuvBravo. True, true. I would say that she needs her own show, one that would showcase her finding true love. HOWEVER, I fear that people would be on just to take advantage of her. Rosie should find a matchmaker though--but no one like Patty Stanger. Someone who is successful with getting people married off, but who would be okay helping Rosie off-camera.
pat.cary1 LuvBravo. Nastybaby
Pat.cary1 ... Rosie knows the truth and has no problem saying so. : )
I agree with you.
pat.cary1 LuvBravo. Nastybaby
Rosie now comes to Kathy's defense, but there was an episode where Rosie basically told Kathy that she didn't support her in her choice of a female friend. One can only assume what the relationship would be today, if they had not made the choice to come on a show to expose their family.
While most of them had what people call an "ah-ha" moment, when Wyatt read Melissa, she had an "oh sh*t" moment.
I enjoy that Wyatt Webb. Does it mean anything that Melissa Gorga doesn't know how to cross herself properly or how to curtsy properly? Pause and reflect.
I was wondering if Melissa was trying to impress the Dr. with her curtsy and it back fired on her.
The horse couldn't have cared less if she twitched her butt or not.
And when is it a proper time to "curtsey"? I don't believe it is done that much in this country. Maybe for royalty, but that would be across the pond for God sakes. It's over and done with & Melissa made a fool out of herself, so time for everybody to build a bridge and get over it. The more she implicates herself, the more people turn away from her when she starts with the victim complaints.
You can't fake this guy out, can't fake a horse out, they sense energy. Not surprising Teresa, who equates vulnerability with weakness, didn't get anywhere. The whole point is to be vulnerable, it will bring you strength and support and draw people (and horses) to you, to be unguarded and real, something I can't see Teresa EVER doing, it's her ultimate downfall and it's always been so painfully obvious.
NYCmama I don't think I could be vulnerable around those vultures. Other than Juicy and Wyatt everyone of those characters threw mud at her.
O.K.! It's official. I can't stand Melissa. I tried really hard because I don't like to see anyone ganged up on and I do think Teresa is a part of these crazy people (Penny etc) being brought in with all the accusations. That said, I think Melissa is a giant FAKE. The dismissive eye rolls, the tooth sucking faces, her comments about the cast members in those private interviews and most of all how rude she was to all the people trying to help during the last few shows. Who do you think you are? What was that stupid walk with the horse? Rude, selfish, self serving.
when she went back and did the little walk, she was expecting him to be smitten or something..she's ridiculous..i'm glad he saw right through her.
Oh I kind of liked "tendons". This is a person with a degree in education & psychology and that was all she could come up with? TENDONS! Wyatt should have put a mirror where the horse's leg was & then she would have responded.
This was an interesting place to go to celebrate Melissa's birthday. Who suggested it to Joe? I thought Chris just suggested an Arizona Spa. I see everyone has benefitted from the experience except Melissa and Teresa. Neither will ever admit they are wrong, weak, or vulnerable. There is nothing wrong with being nervous, scared, sad, or angry it is how you handle those emotions in which people judge you. Not showing these emotions can lead people to believe you are shallow.
I thought Teresa seemed very vulnerable but she should have her guard up because no one there gives a crap about her except Juicy.
Koopla lovehousewives1989 Koopla I wish I could like your comment 1000 times. They have been awful to her.
Koopla lovehousewives1989 Both Teresa and Melissa said they had no weaknesses and could not wait for "real spa" stuff.
Wyatt and equine therapy was the absolute best part of this trip. When Melissa and Teresa talked about how they didn't get anything out of it....well, that was the first time they "bonded" for quite a while! Loved when Wyatt said it's not being nice...it's being manipulative! I think Melissa understood very well what he was saying about her, but since she didn't like it and knew it was true, she tried to make him and the therapy out to be nonsense.
