Who isn't? Because finally, FINALLY people are getting along on #RHONJ. So let the good times (and the libations) roll! There is a lot to celebrate this week, the most important being Audriana's furry rainbow coat.
This. Is. Everything.
But I digress. Teresa and her brother have reinstated Sunday dinners, so you know what that means: a barrage of cute kids!
(And FYI we've got more pictures of the Giudice and the Gorga kids than you can flip a table at, so be sure to check them out.)
See, guys? When you get along, miracles happen. Like Audriana trying to tap dance.
This girl has won the episode and my heart.Clearly things are going well for the Gorga/Giudice clan. So well that everyone is universally happy for Joe Gorga getting a billboard deal with Sizzle Tans.
What's Sizzle Tans you say? And why would it be an issue? Cast your mind back to Teresa's commercial debut:
Teresa shares the genesis of her involvement with Sizzle Tans in her blog. (Let's just say it wasn't her proudest moment.)
Hence everyone's worry that Teresa gets miffed that Joe's copying her. But luckily they all have a good laugh instead, because honestly how can you get mad about this?
Although why they didn't use a shot of Joe Gorga doing push-ups with a model on his back is beyond me. One thing has become clear: the family that tans together, stays together.
We also had the now annual Wakile family outing to a lesbian bar, which is always a delight. This time Rosie traded in the Cubbyhole for trendy new spot The Dalloway, but quite frankly I think Rosie's more of a Cubbyhole kind of girl. This new place was just a little too uptight for our beloved Rosie.
Also I am slightly incredulous that none of the Jersey crew was aware what D.T.F. stands for. Have they never watched Jersey Shore? Joe Gorga went as Snooki for Halloween!
Oh, and Melissa had only one thing to say about her impromptu car rapping in her blog this week: YOLO!
In Manzo news, Albie was having some serious first child problems being worried about his businesses and trying to make sure he live up to his dad. As a first child myself, I can say this comes with the territory. Luckily Caroline was there to remind him that he needs to take it easy sometimes. And also that he needs to get used to the fact that his parents will always be critical. Finally, a parent who can be honest about it!
And last but not least, it is presumably celebration-worthy that Jacqueline and Teresa came face-to-face this week. Whether or not it turns out OK is still yet to be seen, but I can't say it was the most promising start. It's not an easy task to go from "f--- you for blaming your family problems on me" and "remember when you started all those cheating rumors" to a place of let's be cordial and be able to eat an antipasti platter together in peace. But hey, stranger things have happened in Jersey.
Side Note: When Teresa called Jacqueline and said, "It's your favorite friend," was anyone else hoping that it was Santino?
I'd be remiss not to mention the two Milania moments that graced the screen this week. First when we learned that Milania won't be doing any cooking for her future husband.
And that she's very concerned that Gia's lipstick usage may turn off her "boyfriend" when they kiss.
On that note, I leave you with an exclusive sneak peek at next week's episode in which Teresa asks Siri what a "sociopath" is.
