The following are excerpts from the Real Housewives of New Jersey blogs for season 5 episode 2: ‘A Manzo of Her Word’.

Melissa on Moving
By Melissa Gorga
June 09, 2013 8:25 PM

On Jacqueline:

When Jacqueline isn’t working with him, she’s online researching the next best treatments and therapies to try. 100% of her life is devoted to helping her son.

On selling their house:

I know the perception out there is that we’re doing it for one reason: to get away from the Giudices. But the truth is, we put our house on the market months before strippergate. It was a bad time to sell though because of the economy, so we took it off. When all the drama of last season started happening, we decide to put it back on… That sink, incidentally, is in the kids’ playroom bathroom. They were messing around in there, and broke it. It’s my fault we had it anyway. I ordered the sink online based on just a picture. Big mistake. When it arrived, Joe took one look at it and said, “What a piece of crap. I’m putting it in the kids’ playroom.” FYI: A marble replacement is on order. It won’t be cracked.

Joe put his heart and soul into our house. His father wasn’t in construction. He had to teach himself how to do it on his own. He’s as proud of himself as I am of him and our home. It’s our baby. Yes, we built it. Yes, we love it. And we’ll do it again. We’ll love our next home even more. We already found the perfect lot in Franklin Lakes, where we lived when we got married and have wanted to return to. Franklin Lakes is much closer to Paterson where Joe goes to work everyday.

The reason I pushed our broker Jerry to sell “now or never” was because of Antonia. I didn’t want her to have to switch schools in a higher grade. I know from personal experience that it gets harder to make new friends the farther along you are. My Mom and I moved to Florida when I was a freshman in high school, and that was a disaster for me. I know Antonia is a long way from high school. I just think the sooner she gets settled into a new school, the better. The drama with the Giudices was the final push to get us serious about moving. It seemed like the right thing at the time.

On the episode, it comes off like Joe didn’t want to sell and agreed to it only because of me. Some people might believe I gave him my blood to put him in a house-selling trance. That’s just gross! Joe wanted to put it on the market as much as I did—and to get a good price. To my Joey Michelangelo, our house is a work of art. He’s in the business. He knows what it’s worth—3.8 million, even without a pool!

We weren’t too impressed with Jennifer Dalton’s realtor skills. When we met her at a Sandy Hurricane fund-raiser, she talked a good game. She came up to me and said, “I’m a high-end realtor. I know your house is on the market. Let me sell it!” We already had a broker, but Joe said, “If she has buyers, she can bring them over.”

She brought a client over all right, but then nitpicked about one crack in over a 10,000 square foot house? That’s how she sells a place? I wish she’d spent as much time in the gorgeous kitchen with acres of marble countertops and trim work galore rather than crowd three people into my kids’ playroom bathroom.

I thought having the boys around would help transmit the idea that “love lives here.” Of course, Gino and Joey started in with each other as soon as people came through the door. How freaking adorable are they?

On her father-in-law’s surgery:

During this episode, Joe’s father went into the hospital to get his pacemaker. Whenever a loved one goes to the hospital, it’s frightening, especially my father-in-law. He’s struggled with health issues for years. Grandparents are everything to us. I love how Joe’s parents speak in broken English, and bring that Italian vibe to the house. We cook with them, and they tell us about their lives in Italy. They instill the old world values and culture in our kids. We love them so much. It was also cute seeing my nieces write get-well-soon letters to him. I’m sure they made him feel loved.

On Caroline and Teresa:

Caroline and Teresa had their talk. I appreciated Caroline’s going to bat for us. She’s dealt with a lot of the same issues in her own family and felt personally motivated to preventing it from getting worse in ours. The two of them have been friends for a long time, and had a lot of air to clear. At first it felt like she was getting too involved, but now you can see her heart was in the right spot. Caroline and I get along really well, and I love her kids and always will.

On apologies:

Everyone feels that they’re entitled to an apology from everyone. No one is on the same page about who’s at fault, who’s to blame, and who should say, “I’m sorry.” It’ll take a miracle to sort that all out. But even in New Jersey, miracles do happen. Keep watching!

Moving Forward with Caroline
By Teresa Giudice
June 10, 2013 12:21 PM

On her parents and brother:

We made cards for my dad who was going into the hospital to get a pacemaker. It was such a stressful time for us. You can see I could barely talk about it without crying. I still can’t talk about my parents without crying. They are everything to me. I can’t start my day without talking to them.

When I was growing up, like most kids, I thought my dad was too strict and my mom didn’t know anything. Now they are my best friends. My dad is my shopping buddy. I adore him. I named Gia after him (his name is Giacinto). My mom is who I turn to for advice. She’s always telling me not to let things upset me, that you’ll make yourself sick with worry.

We do have a small family — it was just me, my brother, and my parents. That’s why it was so shocking to have my brother not want to talk to me. I didn’t grow up with lots of siblings — some you talk to, some you don’t. It was just me and him, and we never fought.

On Melissa’s reason for moving:

Of course it was very hard to see Melissa say (over and over and over) how she was moving because she didn’t want her kids to grow up near my kids. But I will say their house is beautiful and very well made. Joey did a wonderful job. It’s in our blood. My father did construction in Italy and when he first came to America.

On meeting with Caroline:

When Caroline texted me to meet with her, I really had no idea what she wanted. I wasn’t nervous, because we hadn’t seen each other in a long time. The reunion was horrible, but I really just wanted to move forward. I really just wanted everyone to forgive and forget.

I was confused at first when Caroline said my brother had asked her to meet with me. I didn’t mean he was “scraping the bottom of the barrel” as a personal insult to her, it’s just that if Joey wanted someone to be a go-between for us, why would he ask someone I wasn’t in a good place with? Then she said it was her idea to talk to me for Joey. That didn’t make any sense to me either, since unless she had figured out some magical way of fixing her own problems with her siblings, she didn’t have any more answers than I did. I didn’t ask her about her family to start a fight, I just wondered (and was hoping) that’s why she thought she could fix my family. Then I decided that maybe this was her way of trying to reach out to me, sort of her way to apologize for last year. I’m glad I met with her, she did look good, and the place we met was adorable.

On her friendship with Kim D:

I did want to clear up one thing from our 2-hour conversation. Caroline asked why I was still friends with Kim D. when Kim admitted to trying to set up Melissa as a stripper. I mentioned my brother apologized to Kim D. for the fight they had about it, but still wouldn’t talk to me. The rest of that story is that my brother and Melissa MADE UP with Kim D. They were all fine. If they were fine, why wouldn’t I be OK to hang out with her? Caroline and Jacqueline were also good with Kim D. I don’t know why if everyone that was there that night was good with Kim D., I should be the only one to suddenly turn my back on her? I don’t do that to people.

Kim D. never did anything to me, and she actually apologized to me for dragging me into the whole thing with Melissa. I had nothing to do with it. Melissa knows that, Caroline and Jacqueline know that, and my brother knows that. Kim D. admitted it to everyone, apologized, and they accepted her apology. And yet they were all still mad at me. For what?

I apologized to each and every one of them last year as many times as I could for anything I did or said to them. They accepted my apology, we were good, and then they all used the Posche Fashion show and Kim D.’s attempt to reunite Melissa with someone from her past against me. They knew all along it was never me. Why they pretended to believe it was, I don’t know. I don’t know if I’ll ever know.

A Long History with Teresa
By Caroline Manzo
June 09, 2013 8:07 PM

On not giving away the happy ending of season 5:

For me, this is ancient history, for all of you it’s fresh and new. It’s going to be difficult to navigate through this viewing process from week to week without letting what I see and hear affect where my state of mind is right now. It also is going to be a challenge not to give away too much of how the story ultimately ends. Hey, but I’m never one to shy away from a challenge, so here goes!

On her caged dogs:

Oh, one last thing, before you go nuts and assume the Shepherds are caged and live a life of misery, think again, they have a HUGE run that has a dog house, water, and even a fan to keep them comfortable when they are not running around the yard playing catch with their Daddy Albert and Fran’s boyfriend, Hank. When we are filming we keep them in the run for the safety of the production crew. Remember, these dogs are trained to protect, so a cameraman lurking around the corner is not exactly in a favorable position! Chaos and Atlas are very much a part of this family and are loved dearly. Trust me, Frannie would hand our asses to us if they weren’t!

On Jacqueline:

Jac and Chris deal with Nick daily, realistically speaking, minute to minute with an unflinching positive attitude towards recovering Nicholas so that he may one day walk into a room with that gorgeous little face of his and say, “Hi Mom, Hey Dad, how was your day?” I know one thing for sure, if love can heal, this day is imminent in Little Nick’s future.

On Teresa and Joe Gorga:

Finally, let’s discuss my meeting with Teresa. Last week I received numerous Facebook and Twitter comments about my meeting with Joe Gorga. They ranged from mind your own business, to you have a great big heart, to I have a thing for Joe. Two out of three of you are right in your opinion. Maybe I am overstepping my boundaries, and yes, it’s my heart that is putting me there. As to the third, grow up.

Teresa and I have a long history that spans over many years. We have both experienced the highs and lows that each and every one of us has in the game of life. We have laughed together, cried together, fought for and against each other too. Regardless of where we are in our lives, I can’t sit and watch this family disintegrate. The bottom line is they do love each other and are both fiercely devoted to their respective husband and wife, children, mom, and dad.

Many of you will throw my relationship with my sister in my face. Understood, go for it, it is what it is, and unfortunately out of my control for the moment. This will ultimately change, and I for one hope with all my heart it isn’t before it’s too late. I live with the fear of my parents passing and not seeing those of us who don’t speak every day mend our relationships. It’s something I take very seriously, and this is why I was so passionate when speaking with Joe and Teresa. I’ve been there, I’ve lived it, and I don’t want to watch a brother and sister who only have each other live with regrets. It’s a heavy load to bear, especially as a parent. So, really, all of you are right in thinking what you’re thinking. I’m overstepping my boundaries, but my intent is pure.

If I could have one wish it would be that we could all turn back time, back when we were young and stupid, where we laughed and cried, and fought for each other instead of against one another. Wouldn’t that be nice?

On a side note, on Keek on June 2, 2013, Lauren Manzo said that she doesn’t care if we tune in or not because she still gets paid:

@Laurenmanzo whatever, like u said. You don’t really care if we watch, cause your still getting paid. Like u care what we think. – mlchael byrd (‏@mbyrd1156), June 4, 2013, Twitter

Jacqueline’s Emotional Surprise
By Jacqueline Laurita
June 09, 2013 8:47 PM

Insulting the viewers:

Hello again! Some of you doubted I would return for Season 5. Many of you requested I come back and use my platform as a way to raise Autism Awareness. After much consideration, my family and I made the decision to come back and continue to open up and share our lives with you.

Please understand that “Autism” is NOT my “storyline.” “Autism” is our “reality.” We live with it everyday. There is no way around it. A few ignorant people may call it “exploiting” my son, while I call it “raising autism awareness.” It has become our mission to recover our son while helping as many other families as we can. I am proud of what we’ve accomplished so far.

Making excuses for her horrible behavior in season 4:

During the filming of Season 4, our son was regressing in his milestones. I didn’t bring attention to it while filming, because we didn’t have a diagnosis or even a treatment plan in place yet. I didn’t want people speculating on what my son’s issues were, so we decided to keep it quiet until we had an actual diagnosis. It was a very difficult and devastating year for our family. I think you all have witnessed how I kept breaking down. I cried a lot that season. I still cry when I get overwhelmed at times, but it makes me stronger and ready to take on the next challenge.

The rest of the blog was about plugging products and services for the remediation of autism, including the lollipop used to bride Nicholas to say “I love you,” like a “trained seal performing for the cameras (he deserves respect and privacy and should not be on display so that his mother can get a paycheck”):

That “I love you” was the sweetest and most precious gift to receive. Who cares if we had to bribe him with a lollipop? He said it!

That moment was much more emotional than what you saw in that scene. To me, it meant there was hope. If he was capable of saying that and all that he had accomplished thus far, I believed he could do so much more. Since then, he continues to surprise and impress us with his accomplishments.

The lollipops we use for positive reinforcers are either Revita pops (http://revitapop.com/), Yum Earth Organic Pops (http://yummyearth.com/), and sometimes Dum Dums (http://m.dumdumpops.com/).

On November 27, 2012, Jacqueline told Radar Online that she signed on for another season of RHONJ for “contracts and the money of course.”

Here are some highlights from Jacqueline’s August 22, 2012, People Magazine article:

  • At 15 months, she saw a regression in his motor skills.
  • At 15 months, he started to lose his ability to communicate.
  • She says that once he began to speak, Nicholas would always say, “I love you Mommy.”
  • At 18 months, he wouldn’t say “I love you.”
  • At 18 months, he wasn’t answering to his name or noticing people come into the room.
  • At 18 months, he couldn’t follow a simple command.
  • They waited 8 months for their insurance to clear them to see a specialist, which was followed by the official diagnosis from a family doctor.
  • She is starting to see behavioral issues.
  • “I know they say a lot of autistic kids are not affectionate, and I don’t know how God allowed it, but he’s always hugging and kissing me.”

Jacqueline claimed that by 18 months of age — before he “lost language” — Nicholas would always say, “I love you, Mommy”, which is amazing, since between the ages of 18 to 24 months, babies begin combining words for two-word utterances — usually subjects and verbs or adjectives and nouns — but not complete sentences; these two-word utterances leave out parts of speech and are direct: “want cookie,” “sara mean,” and “fat cat” are examples of two-word utterances.

Rich’s Backseat Driving
By Kathy Wakile
June 10, 2013 9:17 AM

On Richie:

I wouldn’t mind sending Rich to charm school after this episode. Sometimes I wonder what he is thinking, or if he is even thinking at all when he opens his mouth? Really, Rich? Do you even realize the s— that comes out of your mouth? Believe me, I have shaken my head more than you could imagine in twenty years of marriage. I am surprised I don’t have a concussion! But you know what? This is Rich. I love him for everything he is. The good, the bad, and the ugly. That’s what REAL couples do. Nevertheless, the Manzo boys and Greg don’t call me “Saint Kathy” for nothing!

      June 10, 2013 at 8:24 PM

      I don’t care of her kids acted like house plants, which they don’t, any good realtor will tell you–get out of house, and preferably family momentos, like lots of photos. If you don’t, not only is it a distraction for a buyer, it makes it hard to picture a potential buyer living there and it being their home.

      Production must really be setting up the Gorga’s to not sell. Bravo doesn’t care if they sell or have their home foreclosed on…plus the scenes. Whoa! With only three or so homes in Monteville in the MLS in that price range…they just showed non disclosed red flags!

      • Tara
        June 13, 2013 at 12:37 PM

        I agree the realtor will tell the homeowner it is best to leave during a open house. However, it is up to the homeowner if they want to leave or not. they chose to stay not the production team. There house will sell, they just have to walk through it as if they were going to buy it, fix all areas that have been “Hit” by potential buyers (the crack, sink, faucet etc) sometimes things break but will be fixed before closing. In the price range they are in people expect things to be move in ready, and no they don’t need a pool it is NJ for crying out loud if you can afford a million dollar house put one in yourself. haha.

        • June 15, 2013 at 2:37 PM

          They will never sell the house if it is not priced right. NJ is an expensive place to live but we were hit hard by the economy and people that bought there house for one price in 2005 for instance will never come close to getting what they paid for it. I will not profess to be an expert but I don’t believe they will get 3.8 million for that house.

          Also, of course it’s up to the home owner whether or not they want to stay during a showing, however, any realtor will tell you it’s best for the owner not to be there. No one is saying they are forced to leave, it’s a suggestion and if I was as desperate to sell my house as they are, I’d listen to everything a realtor thinks is best.

          She can make as many excuses as she wants, if potential buyers are going to be paying top dollar for a home, things better not break if they’re touched. Along with a cheap looking sink, no matter where it may be, the potential of selling the house hits rock bottom. If the house has been on the market, off the market, on the market and they are as desperate to sell as Melissa suggests, don’t you think they should have done that inspection long ago? Joey thinks everything he’s involved in is perfect… that’s the problem. Joey Michelangelo (who says that?) better get off his high horse, stop patting himself on the back and be realistic about his house but instead he wants to party, go to the gym, follow his wife everywhere she goes and release his poison. They are both full of sh!t!

  3. June 10, 2013 at 12:53 PM

    This crew seems to think that the audience for this show can be called names, can not think for themselves or form their own opinions and that rewriting history to make their lies more palatable is acceptable behavior! Well, I think Caroline is a hypocritical meddling clown, I think that Wacky Jacky is yet again exploiting one of her children for a storyline and I think that Melissa is and will always be a lying, family destroying, jealous and cheap imitation of Teresa.

      June 13, 2013 at 12:31 PM

      I don’t think a mother would exploit her child that has a special need for a show. Autism is very hard to recognized and if she wants to show other mothers how she is dealing with it and what methods she is using is great! Until you have a child with Autism you shouldn’t judge, every little method that brings the smallest goal is a blessing, not one method works that is why the more ideas the better. those saying the bribed Nick with a lollipop again never had or have worked with a special needs child, we use positive reinforcement all the time. This trains the brain that I get this if I do that, just like when you potty trained your tot with stickers, candy, etc. Once he starts talking they will limit the rewards. As for the other ladies they will all work it out in the end. Everyone has family issues their issues are just on TV.

      • June 15, 2013 at 2:45 PM

        It’s quite clear that Jax is not spending the time with Nick that she claims she is. She should be. As you say, no child with Autism is the same, so what can she teach other moms dealing with the same dx? I really hope these moms don’t watch RHoNJ so they can learn how to handle their child with autism. That is a scary thought. Especially since I’m quite sure we’ll see Jax doing lots of other things that have nothing to do with her child. No matter how you slice it, Jax is not a role model for other mothers dealing with autistic children.

      I wondered the SAME THING… Is Melissa writing w a different cadence or have i just not read the blogs in a while? Lolololol. She was always so bothered by Teresa’s blog writer (from reunion “well its hard to compete when someone else is writing someones blogs). Remember? Hahahaha. Its too funny. She reallly thinks after the show if off the air her words will be her continuum ala Hemingway…. Too good!

      • June 15, 2013 at 7:38 AM

        LOL, I know! For the record, I do think Teresa does write her blog… but has some one proofread it. Or she could have had her ghost writer who (helped) write book teach her better grammar. When you read it, sounds like Tree. I can not blame since everything is nick picked ( has it proofread )
        But Melissa… On the other hand..
        Once again,
        “Monkey see, Monkey doo doo, what ever I think you do.. I will copy you.

        Oh hey, when you get a chance check out @Jlo (Jennifer Lopez) favorite tweets. She only has 7. I’m not even going to tell what it is ( no one else do either, I want RHOComix to get a big smile on her face )
        F’ing hilarious! You know for a while Melissa was channeling her.
        Oh, I will comment on your blog later today or tomorrow. Have something to show you.

  7. June 10, 2013 at 1:50 PM

    This was my favorite episode thus far because the facade is finally starting to crack on Melissa! I can’t wait until episode 4 when “Melissa struggles with a secret from her past” according to Zap2it. I think people are finally starting to get it. She is fake and awful in every sense of the world.

    As I watched her sink crack last night, I couldn’t wait to see what her explanation for it would be on her blog. Sure enough…it’s in the kiddie bathroom! Perfect sense. I wonder why this house isn’t moving? I’m sure it looks great on TV and in pictures and once you go inside its made of sub-par materials. During the housing boom when people had tons of money, it would have sold easily (probably to a couple of nouveau riche-ies just like Joe and Melissa) but people who actually HAVE money are smarter than to shell out a couple mill in this economy when you see a fake sink. It’s obviously indicative of more problems.

    And the water not running…what’s up with that? If you move it, do you have to hire a plumber to make a couple bathrooms functional? Or was their water shut off that day because they couldn’t pay the water bill?

    She thinks we all have puny-little minds and accept her word in her blogs as truth. She forgets that while many of us do indeed have puny minds (myself included) we happen to have memories and can recall things like Andy Cohen point blank asking her: Why are you moving? And Melissa answering: Because I don’t want my kids going to school with her kids. Now she tells us what we may have this “perception”!?!? YOU IDIOT. Because you freakin’ told us all that a few months ago!!!!

    • June 10, 2013 at 7:51 PM

      I know! The episodes of the new season she continues the LIE about moving because of Teresa and her kids. Now that people have called her out on that idiotic reason her story quickly changes. Also her and Joe want to move from his family so bad that they are willing to take 1.2 million loss (he said it should be 5 million and that price was a gift) who are they trying to kid. I cant believe they thought people would believe that.

      • June 10, 2013 at 10:02 PM

        Somebody please add up all the bullshit stories about her house. Joey made it for her as her dream house. Oh Really? She moved to Montville to be near Teresa? Again, bullshit. Joey bought that land in Montville because Joe told hm it was cheap. Joe bough his land in Montville, however they plan to live there and raise their children there, Where as Joey built his as a flip. Then they realized that if they lived in it they had a better chance of getting on the show. The bottom line is that he has borrowed from Peter to pay Paul, he has negative equity in his house, and he is in way over his head. He is not even a licensed contractor I have heard. Isn’t he a pool man now? What is he going to Patterson for every day if he has luxury pools to build? To look at his slumlord buildings? I call bullshit on her buying a sink online, also. Joey was putting in six bathrooms. I am sure he used the same guy for all six so he could get his contractor’s discount. If you ordered a sink on line of granite or marble and it wad made of particle board, then the vendor is a liar and should be reported to the better business bureau. I don’t know. What did she do buy it on Ebay? she is such a liar. did she buy the faucet that fell off online as well. That has nothing to do with the sink.
        The only people that might be interested in a house like that are the newly rich, and for those people it is too far from New York. Melissa is such a freaking liar, she lies about little things, she lies about big things, and she treats the viewers like dummies who don’t remember what she said last episode. Why on earth Teresa would want to reconcile with these people, I will never know. Joey does not even have his own mind anymore. He is Melissa’s puppet.

        • June 15, 2013 at 2:51 PM

          I have to disagree about one thing… it is not that far from NYC. I live quite a bit further north and there are many people who go to NYC daily to work. Many want a house a bit away from the city.

        • June 15, 2013 at 2:57 PM

          I’m sorry… I should say that I agree with everything else. You are on the money about why they are in the house to begin with. It wasn’t built as Melissa’s dream home… frickin’ liars! Also, someone did look into whether or not Joey is a licensed contractor and discovered that he isn’t. He’s a glorified landscaper. I guess Joey’s office is in Paterson. Considering his line of work, I don’t know why he would be going to Paterson everyday unless he doesn’t have any jobs lined up.

    Wow I just found this website… and I am not shocked by somethings that are being posted. My grandfather was friends with Teresa’s father some years back, and I can say that Teresa and Joey were extremely close and adored each other. But Joey has changed ever since he was married he was not the same guy you see on this show I can tell you that!! He was very quiet and shy and I am shocked that this is the Joe I am seeing.. WOW! And Kathy was always close with Teresa and was somewhat jealous when Teresa got the house she is living in now, this is kinda why the two of them fell out. And Richie was always a scumbag I’ve met him a couple times at some family gatherings the Gorga’s would have, he seemed shady as hell.. and last but not least Melissa Marco LOL!! most of the stuff is true!!! rumors around Toms River is that she did use Joe Gorga and never truly wanted to be with him and I do not like bringing kids into this but she is not a good mom… I truly thinks she only cares for Antonia and Joey.. my sister follows her on IG and she rarely posts pictures of Gino and it’s sad her sisters and mom always has her kids… I am sure she loves them but I think she wishes she never had them… and have you noticed she has everything else in her bio besides her being a MOTHER?? this chick needs serious help and her true colors will soon come out… someone else will be coming out with more of here lies…

    i actually came on here to comment about the fact that Mel used gymnastics and HIGH SCHOOL as her concerns for moving when I came across the newest post. Wow looks like she plans on wreaking lots of havoc in this family considering her youngest is in what, 2nd or 3rd grade tops?! I mean gymnastics you can go to any city and sign up and high school is about 10 years away. Lame excuses across the board.

        June 10, 2013 at 7:54 PM

        You know when my son was born I had dreams of him going to college. I wanted him to use his brain and build his athletic ability as he was growing into a teen! By the time he reached highschool he rebelled against my ‘dreams’! He know longer wanted to be considered a ‘jock’ and dropped out of sports by his senior year. Thank God that he didn’t rebel in his academics, but instead of college he wants to serve his country. For that I’m proud! What I’m getting at is that I see myself as a stronger mother with an open mind compared to Melissa! What if Antonia rebels against her mother’s wishes? What if Antonia turns into a bully? Kids seem to want to please their parents when their young. Some start to what to get to know the world ‘their way’ not your way by the time they graduate HS, if they graduate HS. I really don’t think Melissa is neither strong enough nor intelligent enough to consider this! Her life seems to be all about her hate for Teresa and pretending to be someone she’s not! Who suffers because of this? The kids, Melissa, not you!

        • Olive
          June 10, 2013 at 8:15 PM

          If Antonia is as controlling as her mother is, e.g bracelet making hell – she will be a bully.

            Yep, @cee_see and @Olive…amazing that Melissa has a so called early childhood degree, but her student teaching she couldn’t del with the kids as she cried to Joe, to move in with him and work for him.

            • June 12, 2013 at 11:30 AM

              Her degree is actually a art degree the easiest degree to get and basically for airheads to say “hey look at me I’m smart I went to college”. She was probably to be a art teacher or something.

    • Stefanie
      June 10, 2013 at 9:55 PM

      I agree lame excuses. The school thing is a ruse. I live in one school district in Indiana & I have to request every year for my youngest to go to a better school in a different district 12 miles down the highway from us. It’s her way of blaming Teresa where she tries to hide her financial issue while trying to bethevictim.

    I especially like that she’s trying to get a jump on next week’s episode regarding Nonno Gorga. Notice she says how much she loves them but couldn’t be bothered to go to the hospital. I believe Teresa confronts her about this next week. She’s already trying to spin her web, like black widows do.
    It’s obvious to me that she was on pins and needles waiting to see what was aired of Teresa and Caroline’s chat. Last week she was all pissy that Caroline got involved but since no shade was thrown her way this week it’s all good and she was coming from a place of love. It’s going to be a long season for Pissy Missy lol!

        Exactly Sackem! She’s just throwing it out there this week because she knows what’s coming. I’m sorry but if she truly cared for her in laws, not even a FREE blow out would’ve kept her from being at the hospital.

        • Jeannie5233
          June 10, 2013 at 4:06 PM

          The blow out was on the day Joey was in the hospital with the flu – that was around January 10th. I believe that was the day of Gia’s party where Melissa shows up with the red and black outfit at the all-white affair which I think is airing is coming Sunday.

          It was in November when Mr. Gorga went into the hospital and was so ill. That is when Teresa tweeted asking for prayers. Both Melissa and Joe said nothing on Twitter. Someone then tweeted Melissa asking why she wasn’t at the hospital and she tweeted back somethng to the effect “I was there today. Thank you”. and “Of course I was there earlier.” Not too many people believed her then. . . .

                You are right, Laram! Mr. Gorga was in the hospital around the same time as Joey Gorga was for the flu. Apparently, Joey got all pissy about it but obviously, Teresa couldn’t go near him. She tweeted the following:

                Teresa Giudice Teresa Giudice ‏@Teresa_Giudice 13 Jan
                Going to get my dad out of the hospital. Happy to be bringing him home on a Sunday

                1:10 PM – 13 Jan 13

                Absolutely no mention from either Melissa or Joey about Mr. Gorga. Melissa was too busy announcing her exercise DVD, her book, arguing with RealityTea and promoting her appearance at Mt. Airy Lodge.

                I could be wrong but I think the sequence is this:

                Mr. Gorga is in the hospital in November and received his pacemaker. This is what we see in Episode 2.

                I believe in Episode 3, the footage being shown was filmed in January at Gia’s birthday White party. That is the day Joey tweeted he was in the hospital and Melissa got her hair blown out for filming that night. I think when Teresa and Melissa discuss Melissa not visiting her dad she is referring to the January hospitalization – not the November one. We shall see this Sunday!!

        • June 10, 2013 at 5:33 PM

          Remember Melissa doesn’t want her children to hear bad things about her?
          Well maybe if she stopped lying about everything and saying horrible things about her husband’s sister’s family, she wouldn’t have to worry about getting called out on her behavior.

        • Olive
          June 10, 2013 at 8:34 PM

          Yes! She said, “stop.. I don’t want my daughter seeing this, it’s gross! ” She was backed into a corner and tried to make Teresa into the bad guy.. C’mon, I’m sure her daughter has seen worse living with two imbeciles. In the words of Joe Gorga – it’s “inedible” haha!

          I don’t know about the rest of yas, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with kids witnessing a healthy disagreement.. As long as you aren’t screaming and name calling…. Whats the problem? It’s not like they won’t experience conflict in their adult lives.. I say – Teach them how to handle themselves now.. That doesn’t include teaching your children to lie and run away like a child having a tantrum.. I hate when adults do that. If someone crosses the line, walk away, otherwise, settle your differencs.. Oh.. And as far as fans and castmates alike bad mouthing Teresa’s kids.. I would much rather have children with a personality who make tons of mistakes early on than children who fear making a mistake, and therefore, learn nothing.. It makes me nervous when I see children behaving like zombies. I feel for them. It makes me think they’re scared to screw up.

    I find it ironic that all these housewives have something to sell I.e. Caroline – sauce, Jacqueline – Blk water, Kathy – cannoli kits mad Melissa – music and yet they all fail business 101!, the customer is always right. Ladies, maybe you shouldn’t tell the viewers they are ignorant and to grow up and then you might be successful. Look at Teresa, she is positive and doesn’t insult the viewers on her blogs and twitter and she her products sell.

  17. June 10, 2013 at 2:56 PM

    I haven’t gotten a chance to read the last couple blogs yet nor have I gotten a chance to watch last night’s episode. Ugh I hate it that I’m always so far behind! LOL

    But I wanted to leave a message here for Jeannie and Princessvodka… thx for much for your thoughtful words about the comment I wrote on a blog from last week about my bf’s son. I left you both a message on that blog as I didn’t want to bring my comments onto this one. Princessvodka… I left a REALLY long message to yours. Actually I have to apologize for the length but I had a lot to address (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it… ;-)). The comments are on the blog about Teresa and Melissa’s blogs from last week so if you want to check it out. It’s more than halfway down the comment section at around 9:00pm June 5th.

    Anyway, I didn’t think either you would check that blog again, hence this message.

    Now… on to watching RHoNJ. Hope it was a good episode and I won’t be sickened by it like I am about the title of this blog… not how Fame titled it but because of the content. OMG how I can’t stand these women… except Teresa… and I’m NOT ignorant and I’m already all grown up. ARGH!!!!!

My former neighbor lost three of her four children, automobile accident, offshore accident, hunting accident, her fourth child is still in therapy. I cannot tell you how many times she has said, “it is not suppose to be this way, the parent should go before the child”. I just cannot imagine.

      Dch, it is mind boggling that a doctor could be so irresponsible! How horrible for you and your BF. The online support group is an extremely good suggestion. The lawsuit is a very good idea as far as trying to warn your community of the dangers of the doctor’s reckless behavior. There are just no words.

      • June 15, 2013 at 4:30 PM

        Thank you all so much for your kind words. Thurs 6/13 would have been his 24th b-day. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him and sure as heck not one that my BF doesn’t think of him. The lawsuit is necessary IMO but I cringe at some of what my bf is going through with it because it’s disgusting some of the tactics the defense uses. One day at a time…

        momajackie… words cannot express how awful it must be for your neighbor to get through each day. I don’t know how she went through what my bf did three times. What an absolute shock for the surviving sibling. Not one thing will ever be the same as they always knew it to be. This story has moved me to tears.

        My boyfriend and I have strong faith although it took him a while to “forgive” God. I’ve had to talk him down from many ledges. He now KNOWS he will be reunited with him one day.

        So many caring people here… thank you.

    “Hello again! Some of you doubted I would return for Season 5. Many of you requested I come back and use my platform as a way to raise Autism Awareness. After much consideration, my family and I made the decision to come back and continue to open up and share our lives with you.”

    I found this quote from Jacqueline Laurita at this website posted November 27, 2012.


    “Several things made me stay, contracts, fame, and the money of course. I know my son will get so much help and support from others. And as much as it helps us, we can help others in a big way. We can use the platform to raise awareness and do so much good.”

    How Kathy can put up with that vile creature of a husband is beyond me. He thinks he’s “cool” by making sexual jokes and idiotic remarks while his son is driving. What an example he sets – Kathy must be so proud. And then there’s when the family was talking about Victoria’s meal plan his belittling comment about her friends that they have been taking advantage of it, insinuating they were overweight. Not surprising coming from someone who regularly degrades women on Twitter. Again, Kathy must be so proud.

    And then there are the “f**king crosses on every f**king building. F**king Catholic school!” comments which go beyond offensive – it doesn’t matter if you are Christian or not, it is offensive for someone to say such a derogatory thing about any symbol resembling a religion. How disrespectful, you little man.

    Kathy – you explain away all these disgusting comments as jokes and his sense of humor. but you are just NOW, after all the years with him, feeling it’s taking a toll on you? Hell, this is ALOT more than just sh*t coming out of his mouth.

    If I was married to him, I would have cut his vile language out of the equation of our relationship right from the get-go. Maybe Rosie’s threat of cutting out someone’s tongue could be applied – figuratively, not literally. Kathy allowing that kind of talk in her household doesn’t say much about her either – however, it’s not at all surprising given what she calls her own aunt and uncle – old school, old fashioned, my a*s!!

      “tasting like fish” but “gets the job done” didn’t help much, I’m sure she must have been totally humiliated by that, to have been said on TV, in front of God, her kids, and the viewers. I wonder if we are going to see a “softer” side of Kathy now, …. now that she is eating a piece of that humble pie, she had been talking about… “there is enough pie to go around”

    • June 10, 2013 at 6:11 PM

      I find it very odd that at the S4 reunion when Tre said something about Kathy having thoughts of divorcing Richie and that her mom confirmed, which is when Kathy called her mom a liar and now their issues are a potential storyline? I just find it very odd and it makes all the more hypocritical for her reaction.

        IMO we are seeing the vindication off Teresa Guidice. Richie gives off that slimeball Chester the Molester vibe. His comments when their son was driving were beyond the pale. Richie has a daughter too. I cannot fathom if low down and dirty is his schtick or if he only has one speed …REPULSIVE! I can guarantee that there are problems with that marriage and Teresa nailed it . She and Juicy know where the bodies are buried…..

        • June 10, 2013 at 7:31 PM

          His kids unfortunately pattern his foul mouthed behavior. When they 1st started to tweet they were all nasty and boom, wham one day the tweets were all deleted and it was rainbows and roses. Well, with the exception of Chester who still tweets obnoxious comments and then deletes.

        • June 11, 2013 at 9:31 AM

          Don’t forget that he had been sexually harrassing Teresa from the age of 17. How Mr Gorga Sr. didn’t take him for a drive with some black bags and a shovel is beyond me. He is a pervert and that is a fact.

      I wonder how Victoria’s friend’s felt after watching the show? I’m sure they were all excited and when it aired Victoria had alot of apologizing to do. My dad is Italian, my mother Native American, but when I was younger my dad would have went on a ‘butt kicking’ adventure for insulting his daughter! My dad was very protective of us girls while we were growing up. I didn’t introduce to my first boyfriend until I was in college! My first words were, “My dad is nice, a little protective, but don’t get offended if he challenges you to an arm wrestle!”. My dad has Alzheimer’s now so I love the memories he gave me! I hope Richie is prepared to get some phonecalls from some disgusted parents! His excuse will probably be, ‘It was the editing!’. Loser!

    I wonder since Jacs son made some much progress the week he was home from school due to Sandy with her why didn’t she just take him out of school and work with him and maybe not be on a tv show. Lets see what’s more important her spreading the word on Autism or SPENDING time working with her son.

    • Cee_See
      June 10, 2013 at 9:59 PM

      I thought the same thing too! I guess money, Jax’s arrogance and ego were far more important than Nicholas’ “recovery”. Didn’t Jax say that autism isn’t her storyline? But, her reality, right? Now she’s saying “many” people wanted her to return to the show in order to use it as a ‘platform to raise awareness to autism’, correct? What the H is the difference? Please, Jax, explain?

        When Chros said wouldn’t it be dummy if he was fine and went into his room and said to himself, “these people are crazy”, I immediately said know he would be like Stu from Family Guy and say, “fu, give me my sucker”!

    I do enjoy Jennifer Dalton so far but it’s too bad she has become friends with Melissa too. Jennifer, open your eyes, and stay far away from her. She’s conniving. Look at how she bashed you in her blog and then proceeds to tweet you and say she loves you, just so you won’t get angry. Trust. What Melissa wrote in her blog about you, is how she really feels.

  26. Jeannie5233
    June 10, 2013 at 4:55 PM

    In Teresa’s new blog, she relates that her dad was in construction in Italy and and also when he first came over to America:

    “Of course it was very hard to see Melissa say (over and over and over) how she was moving because she didn’t want her kids to grow up near my kids. But I will say their house is beautiful and very well made. Joey did a wonderful job. It’s in our blood. My father did construction in Italy and when he first came to America.”

    In Melissa’s blog, she states:

    “Joe put his heart and soul into our house. His father wasn’t in construction. He had to teach himself how to do it on his own.”

    She goes on to say:

    “Grandparents are everything to us. I love how Joe’s parents speak in broken English, and bring that Italian vibe to the house. We cook with them, and they tell us about their lives in Italy. They instill the old world values and culture in our kids.”

    First, the phrase “. . .broken English, and bring that Italian vibe to the house” – a passive-aggressive dig at Joey’s parents.

    And, secondly, there is quite a bit of contradiction whether Mr. Gorga Sr. has any experience in the construction industry. I’ll go with Teresa on this one – I think she would know far better what her father has done in his life. I would think, at the very least, Joey would too. But isn’t interesting that we are supposed to believe that the Sr. Gorgas share their past lives in Italy with Joey and Melissa over dinner and that in those conversations, it has never been mentioned what Mr. Gorga did for a living?! Whatever!

    While the past few seasons have been an anxious and upsetting experience to watch, I am finding, so far, this season to be quite comical. As I said, we now have the gift of hindsight and know this is a farce. Just Melissa referring to Joey as “my Joey Michaelangelo” makes me LOL!!

    • tboz17586
      June 10, 2013 at 6:31 PM

      Melissa is so freakin’ infuriating! What a LIAR! She fabricates everything, she doesn’t give a rat’s about Joe’s family AT ALL. All this falsification about Grandparents are everything to us and she just loves them so much. Keeping a grudge with their only daughter an being in the middle of their two children fighting IS NOT LOVE. On no one’s planet is that love. You’d think she would actually learn something from Jesus eh? Instead of spending all her time in church praying for a new handbag…..she should maybe listen and learn about real love and all the things it is….and IS NOT. She’d soon re-think her definition of LOVE. Love is an action. Urrrgh!!!!!

      The my “Joey Michaelangelo” thing made me grab the bucket as well. She’s such a reacher.

      Oh my gawd.. After everything they’ve done to Teresa, she is trying to help Joes business? That house is crap! Paceboard countertops with duct tape piping. I’m only assuming he used the trusty ole duct tape since he thinks the wealthy should purchase the house made of straw and they can huff and puff and blow.. Oops wrong story.. You get the picture. He is a foolish little man to ever had anyone come in to look at that catastrophe on camera.. That tells me that he is oblivious to how crappy his work is. Which means, he isn’t going to change. Lol

    Teresa’s goodness and positive attitude shine through like a beacon. Teresa loves her fans and would never denigrate the viewers or talk down to us. I am always moved that Teresa is quite willing to share small snippets of her life with us. When she writes in her blog how very much her parents mean to her, how she shops with her father and has talks with her mom and needs to talk to them every morning….seriously? That’s devotion. I actually feel sad that the others have no genuine appreciation for their lives. Melvin could easily give her children the lasting gift of love,wisdom and joy that are the Guidice grandparents. I rarely hear the the others mention their extended family and that speaks volumes.

            Bravo is such a joke – who do they think they are kidding that a commenter isn’t smart enough to figure out their game! I know I will never be reinstated into their good graces because of my comments about the responsibility they carried in the suicide of Russell Armstrong. Oh, they didn’t take very kindly to that and my entire history went POOF!

    I’m glad that ugly window on the Gorga home was finally brought up on the show!
    It’s been hurting my eyes since the first time I saw it!

    I always chuckle to myself when they talk about how great their house is. The whole design of it is messy and I’m not surprised to see that at least some of that “marble” is fake.

    Who orders sinks off the internet? Was the house not finished when they moved in and they were gradually piecing it together while living in it? Messy messy messy. She probably googled “cheap marble sinks” hahaha

  31. June 10, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    My problem with Caroline is all of her hypocrisy. During season three she told Teresa to sit down and shut up and listen to what Caroline had to say so she could fix things with her brother. If she knows exactly what to do to fix issues between siblings/in-laws that are not speaking, why doesn’t she use all of her own advice. I would think that fixing her relationship between her and her sister would have presidence over Teresa and her brother. At the season three reunion she also said the issues between her and Dina was because Dina has a friend who likes to talk and attacked her meddling and getting involved. As soon as Dina said Tresa had nothing to do with their issues at the season four reunion it changed to Teresa just being a “part or it” and downplayed Teresa’s part in it. I think she brought up Teresa’s parents dying and not seeing their kids reconcile was EVIL. She HAD to have known Tree’s father was in the hospital, either from Joe, twitter, blogs or magazines she clearly went for the jugular and knowing how much Tree loves her parents and how much that would effect her. That was so low and disgusting to say that with someones parent in the hospital. Caroline is quite a bit older than Tree why doesn’t she worry about her own parents not seeing Caroline reconcile with the multiple siblings and in-laws she’s not speaking to? Off topic but I couldn’t believe the things Lauren said about Tree’s parenting and her daughters in general. How does she know so much about parenting being 25, living with mom and a “boyfriend” that was bought. With all the praise Caroline gets for being a “good” mom and the high horse she is about her parenting skills she wouldn’t put her pathetic daughter in line about that.

    June 10, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    Would the house not be FULL of fake marble etc? Was it not supposed to be a show home or a “spec house” as you guys call it? That kinda sealed that for me as that’s the kinda thing you would find. Taps that don’t work etc because it’s not really meant to be lived in? I dunno but it’s all a bit fishy to me. When Tre had her house “re-done”….at least she did it right! She made sure everything was worth the money! Melissa is a thirsty faker copy cat and everything else. Zero class.

    • June 10, 2013 at 7:41 PM

      Actually tboz, I have many friends in the construction industry that build spec custom homes and the key to selling is to make it custom with quality materials. It’s a small niche market and if word gets out you are subpar then the chances of selling homes in the 2+ mil price range are slim to none.

      • tboz17586
        June 11, 2013 at 6:40 AM

        Ahh I see! Well, the word is out now about their home, whether it’s a spec house or otherwise. It’s probably worse that they have that in their “dream home” anyways….like I say…You wouldn’t find that at Tereeeeeesaaaa’s LOL

    • June 15, 2013 at 5:19 PM

      Joey built the house to flip it. As a “builder” constructing a $6,000,000* home it should be of the best quality as at the price that’s what a buyer will expect and rightly so. mzjulesaz is correct… by using “fake” materials that does not bode well for your reputation as a premium builder. A “spec home” only means that it’s ready to move into and the buyer does not have the contractor build it to his personal specifications which obviously takes longer. The buyer would still expect a builder to have enough integrity to construct a quality home at that price point.

      *According to JoGo the house was worth $6,000,000 when he built it. Then they moved into it to get on the show. HAHAHA looks like getting on the show cost him an awful lot of money! although I don’t believe for a moment he could have ever gotten $6,000,000 any more than he’ll get 3.8 million for it now.

    This is off topic but I feel it is very important to share with all of you here. Bryan “Bulldog” Bowen had an MRI last week and it appears it was not a good result. He has already been dealing with the fact part of the tumor could not be removed because of the location in the brain but now the tumor has turned malignant. He has been admitted back into NYU today and is now undergoing tests. Here are just some of his tweets today:

    Bryan ‏@bulldog_nj 4h
    Admitted back in NYU didn’t see this coming.. Life is precious

    @ToughPrincessJn 🙂 T/Y means a lot. Tumor has growth n form of cancer. Looks like ill be here for awhile.. See what’s next for me.
    2:50 PM – 10 Jun 13

    This is a man who has overcome so many obstacles in his life. He has made wrong decisions and mistakes but has taken steps to right his wrongs and live by a code of respect and put his life back on the right path. I give him credit for being honest and admitting his mistakes. He is now fighting the biggest battle anyone could ever face – for his life.

    For those of us who pray, now would probably be a good time to add Bryan to your prayer chain if you wish. For those of us who don’t, sending positivity and goodness Bryan’s way would go a long way too.

        Dee you know better than that. There’s enough here to write a few books about how screwed up Melissa is… and that’s putting it nicely. More and more people are quickly realizing it. Lies will always come back and bite the liar in the a$$ and the only way someone can stomach Melissa is if you believe enough of her lies and don’t pay very close attention to the show. You may end up being her only fan! LOLOL

          She’s great!!! We had visitors for 10 days so we were very busy, then she got a little cold so I thought a down day was in order – I’m climbing the walls!!!! It’s amazing how quickly routine can disappear. She started rolling over before they came because we were practicing which wasn’t as concentrated when they were here. We picked it back up today and she’s basically a stunt woman now. Rocking a rolling and giggling! If I do one more round of This Little Piggy today though, I think I’ll burst! CABIN FEVER!!

            Oh and the breast feeding has resulted in hair loss – crazy amounts just falling out!!! I think it has something to do with my Vitamin D levels. I was deficient during pregnancy do I took supplements and told there was no real need to keep them up after delivery but “you may as well finish the bottle”. When I finished, the shedding started.

    Kim D. is going to be blogging about this season on her own personal blog. Seems like she doesn’t like Jennifer Dalton. Maybe Dalton says to Melissa that it was Kim D. spreading rumors about her cheating. My money is either on her blaming Kim D. or Penny.

      Interesting but a bit weird to don’t you think? I’m interested in what she has to say but I don’t know, it’s just weird. She obviously is vying for a housewife position.

      It kinda seems desperate in a way particularly after reading Tom Murro suggesting that Danielle will make an appearance this season – as a stalker!!! He is saying she’s turn up to events to try and get back on tele. I can see the stalking allegation, remember how she was going to the police fundraiser at Caroline’s but I don’t know, why this season? She was more relevant last season!

      • June 11, 2013 at 1:11 AM

    Wasn’t Jac addicted to twitter before she came forward with her son’s autism?

    Didn’t Andy ask her about her twitter addiction at the last reunion?

    Wasn’t she going through her son’s autism last season but keeping it a secret?

    Wasn’t she on twitter 24/7 last season yapping about Theresa etc.

    I do not recall her having any support last season.

    If you don’t think this should be here please remove it. This is a prayer for Bryan

    For Sick Relatives and Friends

    O great St. Peregrine, thou hast been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker” because of the numerous miracles which thou hast obtained from God for those who have had recourse to thee, thou who for so many years didst bear in thine own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the Source of all grace when the power of man could do no more; thou who wast favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal thy affliction, ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of these sick persons whom we entrust to thee. (Name them)

    Aided in this way by thy powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

    My mother in law had stage 3 breast cancer and is completely cured. Cancer is gone!! Said this prayer quite a few times

    For non Catholics : this is kinda like asking someone else to pray for you

    For people that don’t pray. Just send out kind thoughts. Sorry no offense meant with posting the prayer

      Dianna – you have just made me cry – thank you so much for this. I am having a particularly stressful time right now these past few weeks. Most people here at FW know my mom is terminal – she only has a few more months to live, if that. My emotions of late are running high. I have been so upset about Bryan and I don’t even know him. My heart just breaks to see such a young, strong, vital man fighting for his life.

      This is a beautiful prayer for those of us who do. And for those who don’t – I know their hearts are kind and giving and are doing their part in sending good thoughts and positive energy to Bryan.

      Your posting this just shows me, once again, how wonderful and compassionate the people on this blog are. Again, thank you – you are a very thoughtful lady.

      When the Housewives deposit that Bravo paycheck maybe they need to take a moment and consider the audience. If we don’t watch it’s cancellation time. Perhaps those special snowflake housewives can stop with the nasty comments and insults directed at the viewers. Maybe the other RHONJ need to take deportment lessons from a certain Ms. Teresa Guidice and learn how to be appreciative of said audience. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away…..

    • June 11, 2013 at 2:29 PM

      Almost everyone I know stopped watching between Season 3 and Season 4. It really got too dark. This show was the best of the housewives shows. It really was the interactions between family and real friends. I was fun to watch the casino trips, beauty shop visits, lunches and grand parties. We saw two beautiful babies being brought into this world, the show was everything we needed to witness to escape from our daily lives. It turned ugly the first episode of Season 3.

      Now this show is about a bunch of lying, stealing, vile, disgusting thugs, (of which one has the compulsive desire to expose his genitals on international television, this one is really sick) married to mean, lying, violent, drunk, pill popping, stiletto stabbing ex-strippers, a jealous cousin who is married to the most disgusting thug of all and a know it all braggadocio, along with her insulting and immature adult children. All this group did during the past two seasons was to eject venom and congratulate themselves for doing so. Who wants this to be their beautiful escape from their real world?

        Spot on Moma. I loved the total escapist vibe the first two seasons. Now I have to fast forward thru Jax, Kathy and Rosie and only watched Caroline because she was in a scene with Teresa. There is no pleasure in watching unhappiness, foul language, crude references to sex and the low nature of these folks. I can’t abide Richie Wakile, Rosie the Perv, MeGo and Joey. Knowing what scammers the Lauritas are makes my blood boil over! The trips aren’t fun but usually an excuse for a knock down drag out brawl. I just can’t. Love Teresa but praying she gets her own show.

    Totally off topic. I have been complaining for months now, that my laptop has a mind of it’s own. I tried posting several times today (and in the past) only to have the entire post turn blue (copy mode) and disappear completely with the stroke of a single key. I could not figure out what was happening. I even stopped wearing a watch while posting or just typing, thinking the watch would inadvertently hit something that would make the keys go crazy. Turns out I had the “jumping cursor” affliction. So happy to finally solve that problem and have a laptop I finally get along with.

  56. June 11, 2013 at 6:46 PM

    Amazing this actually made it on the Bravo blogs (not from me):

    Doubt this will get posted, I’m putting this on each of the blogs. Did you fellow viewers read TV Blog interview with the RHONJ? Seems us viewers are not “loved” like the cast mates always make out LOL. They kind of blame us for their fighting!!

    AP: Do some viewers prefer to see you fighting?
    Manzo: Oh, they love it.
    Laurita: They do, but then when you fight they’re like, ‘Why can’t you guys get along?’
    Gorga: When you’re fighting they don’t like it and when you’re getting along they’re like, ‘Boring!’
    Wakile: It’s what makes us different than the other (‘Real Housewives’) shows because these are our lives and our families as well. You may not know why we feel the way we feel. You may see some of what we’re feeling but you don’t know where it stems from.
    Manzo: There’s also the social media aspect. The assumption viewers make not really knowing what’s going on, not really knowing how things played out and they’re not very forgiving in what they have to say. For me it’s all encompassing and we film for six months. We don’t know what’s gonna make it on the shows. We see it three days before you do. The anticipation for us is, ‘When that DVD comes, what’s on this?’
    AP: Do people on social media sometimes add fuel to the fire?
    Giudice: Sometimes they twist it and make it worse than it is.
    Manzo: And it’s crazy because I don’t pay attention to it but it’s such a huge part of what this show has become.
    Laurita: It’s like, ‘You don’t know the full story.’
    Manzo: You have to have a hard shell around you. For me, five seasons in I’m bulletproof, but somebody that’s new in the game, it’s very distracting.
    Wakile: And you’d hate for it to chip away on the work that you’ve come so far and then these people start getting in your head.

    The ladies don’t seem to mind the money they’re making! Why don’t we boycott the RHONJ so that we don’t contaminate their getting along? I hate to think I’m the one making them fight or hurting their families!!!

  57. Zoebot
    June 11, 2013 at 6:53 PM

    This was bothering me and I wonder what Fame’s take is on it and of course, my fellow posters!

    You know how Joey Marco kept saying before the recession, his house was worth $6 million easily (yes, the recession will definitely affect the pricing but not the home’s value/worth, moron) — to me it was like him trying to one up Teresa.

    In season 2, Tre told Danielle that she was living in a $5 million dollar home. How convenient that Joey’s house is worth $1 million more. I think he did that on purpose to make it like his house is more expensive than Teresa’s. And of course, he was also trying to sound like their house is oh-so-expensive and they’re taking a loss but they can because they’re so “rich”.

    I’m sorry but taking into account the square footage, the property, the neighborhood, and the home in itself, it’s not worth more than $1.5 million, IMHO. But my point is, those comments about $6 million were him trying to one up Teresa and Juicy. And I also think when Melissa writes in her blog that Joe had no help in construction was more of a dig at Juicy too since Tre has said he taught her brother how to flip homes.

    These assholes can’t give credit where its due, ever!

    • tboz17586
      June 11, 2013 at 7:45 PM

      Well said Zoebot, I totally agree! It’s pathetic really! No one would think any less of them to admit that his older brother in law helped when he was starting out, it’s actually really cool. We’d think waaaaay more of them both tbh.

      I live in Scotland so house prices and sizes are totally different, but it does not strike me as a $6m home in the states. It’s nowhere near as grand a Teresa’s so how could it cost more?! I’m maybe making assumptions but my experience of the cost of homes in the states doesn’t fit with the Whorga’s home being worth $6m at all. I fully agree that it was a not-so-sly dig at the Giudices. They also lied about the square footage so why on Earth wouldn’t those thirsty whorgas embellish on the worth as well? Everything about them saddens me.

      • Saddle_River_NJ

        The square footage of the Gorga home is actually 9678 sq ft…

      • Zoebot
        June 12, 2013 at 1:08 AM

        Exactly. I would applaud them if they were humble and actually recognized those that helped them. But since they can’t acknowledge those that came before them, we have a concrete example of insecurity. The Gorgas are the epitome of insecurity.

    • Saddle_River_NJ
      June 11, 2013 at 11:32 PM

      Joe is a total friggin’ LIAR. The house was built in 2009. At that point Montville was using an assesment of about 54% (of market price) for property tax calculation. The house was assessed at $1,533,500. That means at *most* the house had a market value of about $2,900,000. So he claims the house was worth *TWICE* the actual market value at the time? Montville now assessed at about 100% of market value and the house is pegged at about $2.8 million. 2 acres is pretty much common for estate sized homes in Northern Jersey. My town has a large number of homes over 10,000sq ft and they look appropriate to the lot size and area. The Gorga’s may have had a lot that the house would fit *on*, but that doesn’t make it right. I’m also very suspicious of the quality of the build if PrissyMissy talk about “mail order sinks” She only ordered that one single sink? And when it arrived and Joe saw it was crap – he installed it anyway? Sounds like Michelangelo is using finger paint and paper mache to build his movie set house. Its glossy look is just a veneer. Kind of like the “marble” covered MDF of the sink. After “strippergate” I guess this is “marblegate”

      • Zoebot
        June 12, 2013 at 1:07 AM

        So the assessment wasn’t too far off my guess. Thanks for the info Saddle_River_NJ.

        And completely agree about the mail order sink. What a bullshit of an explanation. I’m sure that every sink and countertop in that entire house is laminate with a granite pattern.

    I’d just like to point out from Missy’s blog: “His father wasn’t in construction. He had to teach himself how to do it on his own…” Then we have Teresa’s blog: “But I will say their house is beautiful and very well made. Joey did a wonderful job. It’s in our blood. My FATHER did CONSTRUCTION in Italy and when he first came to America…” Soooo Missy really does lie about pretty much everything! As if we didn’t already know that. But come on! Even the little things like this? I wonder who’s Bravo blog came out first? She’s a mess. Point blank. And I died laughing when Dalton was in the “playroom bathroom”. Everything in that house is as fake as the woman that lives there.

  59. June 15, 2013 at 8:05 PM

    I posted this in a reply above but I think it’s worth repeating. I believe Joey finished his Montvale house in 2009. He claims his house at that time was worth $6 million (that’s not true but roll with me here…). They were going to sell it but then moved in to help them get on RHoNJ. Now it’s on the market for $3.8 million. That means joining the housewives to bring down Teresa cost them over 2 million bucks!!! LOLOL That would have been such poetic justice.
