Goodbye, Greg! - Ep 11
Bravotv.com's Associate Producer will miss Greg (and Deloris).
Somehow, some way, everyone in New Jersey has now managed to make some kind of peace.
And if you're wondering how Jacqueline and Teresa finally arrived at a cordial place, never fear, we've got a handy guide to the ups and downs of this fraught frenemy relationship.
So in honor of this pan-Jersey healing, rejoice with an Audriana tap dance of joy!
Or take a big swig from a tiny cup. Whatever you prefer.
In other positive news, Joe Gorga is spending some quality godfather time with Gia at the most spiritual of locations -- the local go kart racetrack.
And even though he refused to let Gia win, how could she not have fun with this goofball?
But their bonding time wasn't all laughs and extreme competition. Gia, in one of the most touching/wow this kid truly becoming an adult moments of the series, goes deep with Joe about their relationship and how all of the fighting between him and Teresa has really affected her. Powerful stuff.
Take a moment while you dry your eyes to look back at these adorable home photos of Gia (and the rest of the girls) through the years. Ah, memories!
Now that everyone is getting along (or at least can be in the same room together without giving death stares), Teresa decides to have everyone hop on a party bus and zumba the night away for charity.
Did I mention the party bus had a pole?
All in good fun! You know it's a good day when everyone can sit back and laugh about all the names they've called each other in the past. (Or at least Google them.)
After a little bus wine, the crew was ready to shake and samba for a good cause. Joe Gorga had my favorite dance move by far:
And while some relationships were repaired this week, others were changed forever. Greg, the lovable and sassy roommate of the Manzo bros, has decided to go west to California. I for one will miss all his great one liners and comic relief. My personal favorite being when he said he felt like Sandra Bullock in Speed on the RV trip.
Side Note: Did you know he once met Mariah Carey?
Caroline shed a tear and gave a lovely goodbye speech (and reveals she's hoping he'll end up back in Jersey in her blog). We'll never forget you, Greg! (Or Deloris!)
Speaking of the West Coast, Jacqueline takes a little trip to Beverly Hills, not to meet Lisa Vanderpump and dine at SUR, but to get her tummy and neck done. It's unclear why she has to go all the way to Cali, but it does mean we get to catch up with Ashlee, so yay!
Jacqueline's prodigal daughter has turned her attitude around with her new West Coast ways and has been blogging up a storm. She won't even take a tequila shot with her mom! It looks like getting kicked out was the best thing that ever happened to her.
BTW did you know Jacqueline's surgery took six hours? She's got all the gory details in her blog.
Next week Melissa confronts her ex-friend Jan about the cheating rumors.
