If there’s one thing The Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies know how to do, it’s sit down and talk about their issues over a table. And yes, sometimes that table gets flung and someone gets called a "prostitution whore". But hey, if it ain’t broke...
With the upcoming sit down between Rosie Pierri and Teresa Giudice, we wanted to make sure these ladies--and you--know exactly what it takes to have a successful, meaningful, and rehabilitative sit down. (OK, maybe the rehabilitative part will never happen.) Here are a few classic RHONJ moments that embody the art of the sit-down:
No. 1 - Dina Manzo and Danielle Staub
What we learned: Whatever you do, do not shush anyone. Oh, and don’t call Danielle crazy. EVER.
No. 2 - Caroline Manzo and Danielle Staub
What we learned: Come prepared. Make sure you have an example of when your dinner partner attacked you in the past. It makes the conversation flow so much more easily.
No. 3 - Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice
What we learned: Read up on the proper book signing invitation etiquette. In an argument, starting off phrases with, “if my wife was the biggest whore on the street…” is a great way to get your point across.
No. 4 - Teresa and Melissa Gorga
What we learned: Maybe don’t roll your eyes when someone talks about their parents. Also, cookies surprisingly can’t solve all problems.
No. 5 - Caroline and Teresa
What we learned: Matching helps. How can you stay mad at someone who shares your love of teal? And try to have the sit down at a neutral place, like the wonderful Ho-Ho-Kus Inn and Tavern. We can only imagine how many Housewife dramas have played out there since 1790.
Now that you're educated on the finer points of a New Jersey sit-down, tune in this Sunday at 8/7c to find out if RHONJ history repeats itself when Rosie and Teresa face off cousin-to-cousin.
There's nothing funny or noble about Rosie's behavior. She's an angry bully who is in major denial about her alcoholism. It's a shame that the people close to her see this kind of behavior as acceptable and people who don't even know her put her up on some kind of pedastool. I'm done with this show. No role models here. Disgraceful.
Theresa, you looked so confused when Rosie got loud and you wanted her to act differently. You are the queen of hypocrisy. What about your table flipping episode. That takes the cake! Then you knocked over the trash can in the gym. Take a good long look at yourself before you EVER criticize anyone else. Your life is going to continue to be unpleasant until you accept your part in all of it and learn two very important words......I'M SORRY! But PLEASE mean it when you say it. You've done some really low class stuff. I don't blame Melissa for riding her hands of you. At least Melissa has class. She never acts inappropriate. You're a real piece of work. GET SOME HELP!
Is Rosie a housewife? No! So, except for the fact that she is part of the family, she is nothing but a very filthy loudmouth! Screaming in public places, on TV for C's sake! Hey Ro...just because you are a lesbian, does not mean you have to be so loud and crude...and what's with the "uppa piso" crude gesture with the arm? You are not funny, there is nothing to laugh about that has anything to do with you and your behavior.
You are f'n sick!
@Cajunkim Flipping a table is a walk in the park, compared to the things Rosie has said and done! That woman has SERIOUS ISSUES!
I like Rosie and I can't STAND Teresa or her lowlife husband BUT,Rosie needs to tone it down..she's just making herself look bad and Teresa look better.
I love Rosie, because she says it like it is. She's not afraid to call Teresa out on her obnoxious behavior, and Teresa deserves every nasty thing she gets.
Poor poor pitiful Teresa, ALWAYS the "victim" of everyone else. NEVER takes responsibility for the nastiness she puts out. I hope Rosie reams her.
That is the reason why the problem is not resolved, they do not talk they scream and nobody listens
OK, #1..Noone that has made a comment here has wither been NEAR nor have they been on the inside of an Italian family. Shouting IS and acceptable form..lol..of communication. Myself?
I'm 1/2 Irish, 1/4 Austrian, 1/4 Scottish. Expressions of temper are much different in Europe than they are here. Even the Scottish and Irish have tempers that can't be beat. So lay off off Rosie..Ok? She's defending what she feels she needs to..which is her FAMILY.Although all rhyme and reason may leave a conversation such as this, it comes from love, pride (yes pride)
but nothing that would hope that the other suffer has they have been. Get a grip folks..this is life on the very crowded east coast.
WOW poor Teresa!!! She's on a show with a bunch of green eyed monsters!! Jealousy at its finest....
I can't wait to watch the show! I totally get Rosie's attitude. She is protecting her sister and Mom. Shame on you Teresa!!!!
@kroberts WHAT ON EARTH DID TERESA EVER DO TO ROSIE, OR THE REST OF THEM FOR THAT MATTER?!!!! I don't blame Teresa from staying away from ALL OF THEM! They are filled with jealousy and don't mean her a bit of good! I would RUN from them, not walk!
Rosy your behavior shows us what Teresa wants to get away from you and your family for .
If you were my relative acting like that all the time at your age.....id avoid you permanently.
@justmyview So, Teresa, STAYS AWAY FROM ALL OF THEM, yet, "she's disgusting?" Okay...
At least she's got an excuse. Teresa doesn't need booze to be a raging bull!
@promotepeace Rosie cannot blame it on the alcohol, because she wasn't drunk at the reunion, where she acted a fool!
After watching the Teresa/Rosie preview - I won't watch it again on Sunday. Rosie is so out of control that whatever she has to say will come with a full dose of cussing and hand gestures. Isn't anyone else embarrassed by her constantly inappropriate and disrespectful behavior? And as far as "telling I like it is" as a justifiable excuse for her constantly disrespectful behavior? Who buys that noise? Or being "Old School"? More like no school. So no thanks Bravo - I will take a pass on Ranting Rosie.
SylviaS WCW The Kennedy's?????? LMAO You have NO idea of what you speak of. the Big "K's handled ALL of their dirty laundry (and they had PLENTY of it) on the "down low". So Pahlease....the H intentional, leave family fight's alone. It's a "family fight"..LEAVE IT ALONE
WCW Simply knowing there is a confrontation with Rosie and anyone else, I will not watch this week. I truly cannot stand Rosie any longer. Please please, someone at Bravo wake up and remove her.
