Heather Maclean Says Teresa “Begged Andy to Fire Her” When They Cast Melissa Gorga; Joe and Melissa Quickly Pack to Leave the Retreat While Joe and Teresa Share “Sexy Time” in a Jacuzzi Tub

July 15, 2013

Teresa Giudice’s friend of five years and co-writer Heather Maclean (@heathermaclean) says that Teresa can’t leave RHONJ because she is “locked into a contract.” When Bravo cast Melissa, Heather says Teresa begged Andy to fire her, but he said, “Dream on.” She also said that “the entire show being about destroying a family is sickening,” and gave her opinion of the Gorgas by tweeting: “The ‘family’ who signed up to do it, reprehensible.”

The following is the partial transcript for a preview of season 5 episode 8, “The Fight Fallout,” where Melissa and Joey pack quickly to leave the retreat.

Melissa [from the bathroom]: He’s the shit husband, he’s all these things!

Joe: If my dad passes tomorrow, God forbid – knock on fucking wood (knocks on wood) – I will have my own funeral without her – she deserves what she got.

Melissa [coming out of the bathroom- highly agitated and upset]: No more of this fixing! This is my family too! Do you understand me?! Those three babies are mine too! I’m done! They’re not normal, I don’t care! Guess what, honey?! Saddam Hussein – that’s someone’s brother too! It doesn’t mean that he’s a good person. Let’s go! How long you gonna take to put a shirt on?

The following is the transcript for another preview of episode 8, “Sexy Times to Relieve Stress,” where Teresa and Joe share a jacuzzi bathtub.

Room service knocks on the bathroom door and Teresa and Joe are in the tub together.

Teresa: Come in!

Server walks in.

Teresa: Hi!

Server: Hello.

Juicy: How are you?

Server: Great!

Juicy: Thank God you came in because, I tell you the truth, I was ready to dehydrate in this thing.

Teresa: After the day we had today, we definitely need this.

Juicy: If I wake up tomorrow morning the way I’m feeling right now, you’re is brother’s doomed. If I wake up tomorrow morning feeling good, I’ll give him another shot. Maybe I’ll take him fishing.

Server fills their glasses and sets them on the ledge.

Teresa: Thank you! Thank you so much!

Server: Enjoy.

Juicy: Thank you.

Teresa and Joe kiss and share glasses, not able to correctly interlock their arms.

Teresa TH: Tonight was actually exhausting to me. Sexy time relieves a lot of stress. My husband was defending my honor, so I’m gonna give him a little brown chicka brawn chow! (laughs and tries to wink). I don’t know how to wink.


s5 166 h

In Teresa’s TH during season 5 episode 7, she says, “My brother – do I feel like he’s taking this serious, no.” She’s right – the Gorgas made it clear in the last episode that they considered the retreat “an intervention” and were going to “confront Teresa” and “put an end to the bullshit.” Here’s what they said in the previous episode:

Joey TH: Now Teresa wants to do this family retreat. You now what, we’re going to definitely go and confront Teresa.

Melissa TH: This retreat might as well be an intervention. So pack your bags, lets put an end to this bullshit once and for all because I’m done.

However, in Melissa’s Bravo blog, she worded it differently, stating: “we truly wanted to get to the bottom of the problem,” Teresa (without using her name) “wasn’t being honest” and “was pretending she wanted to fix things”, and Teresa was the reason “they could never really move forward.” She also reused the same phrase she’s been using since season 3: “We weren’t going to be fake.”

“Joe and I were skeptical about the retreat from the start… We decided if we were going to go to this retreat, we weren’t going to be fake… It may have seemed harsh, but we were being real and we truly wanted to get to the bottom of the problem… When people don’t want to be honest and pretend they want to fix things you can never really move forward. There were so many ugly things being said about us and we just wanted it to stop… Our whole crew had doubts about how productive the weekend would go.”

In her blog she did not address the comments she made about the Giudice’s marriage and Joe Giudice’s intelligence:

“He doesn’t love her. He’s a cheater. He’s an asshole. So he doesn’t give a fuck what she does.”

“I think Joe Giudice is so in to these games because his brain [motions like his brain is small] could understand the content of what we were doing.”

Nor did she address the comments Richie made about her feelings toward Teresa:

“She doesn’t upset me, and the truth of it, she doesn’t upset Melissa either because we don’t give a shit about her.”

“Teresa won’t admit that she has anything to do with any of these rumors about Melissa.”

In her blog, she says, “We do eventually figure out a way to climb up from rock bottom.” During episode 7, she accused Teresa of being involved in the cheating rumors and called Teresa a monster, and Teresa said she was “fuckin’ malicious,” so it will be interesting to see how they get to a better place in upcoming episodes:

“My sister-in-law needs prescription drugs. She’s a monster! And even though she completely denies any involvement with the rumors, when someone’s talking bad about me, there’s Teresa. She can’t get any dirtier.”

“This is the Melissa I know. Fuckin’ malicious. She plays the sweet one or the victim – that’s not Melissa.”

Surely Melissa will never discuss her husband’s bizarre comments about his sister and sex:

“When I’m frustrated with my sister, usually I have sex with my wife.”

“It’s hard to look at her. I get this anxiety through my body, you know what I mean? This burning sensation, you know? It kinda sucks!”

The following are Melissa’s and Jacqueline’s Bravo blogs for episode 7.

Hitting Rock Bottom with Joe and Teresa
By Melissa Gorga
Monday, July 15, 2013 11:22 AM

Welcome to rock bottom. We hit it hard in this episode, and it was NOT a soft landing, believe me.

I was expecting the castle in Lake George to remind me of a Disney World or Camelot, but what it really reminded me of was the scary hotel in The Shining. Not a good vibe to have going on. I was nervous and on edge. We all were.

Joe and I were skeptical about the retreat from the start. I know that everyone wanted us to walk in, put on a happy face and say that everything would be okay, but that’s just not reality. There have been too many times when we put a band-aid on our issues with Teresa, and we would always fall back to the same negative place. We decided if we were going to go to this retreat, we weren’t going to be fake. We didn’t want to throw a blanket on the problems that were hurting our family.

It may have seemed harsh, but we were being real and we truly wanted to get to the bottom of the problem. That was obviously not going to be easy. When people don’t want to be honest and pretend they want to fix things you can never really move forward. There were so many ugly things being said about us and we just wanted it to stop.

I expected Lake George to be another round of the usual. Our whole crew had doubts about how productive the weekend would go. Well, I was wrong about one thing. It wasn’t the same old, same old. It was much worse.

We started off awkward, got angry, and then furious, and spiraled down until we were at the lowest of the low. While we were in Lake George, we were as mean and petty and disrespectful as we’d ever been in the ten years we’ve known each other. They say you have to hit rock bottom before you can climb your way out. You’ll find out if “they” are right.

Didn’t you feel sorry for our team builders Opie (aka Steve) and Little Miss Sunshine (Stephanie)? They were like two little bunnies hopping into the wolf’s den.

When you’re in that pit of raw, extreme emotion, you lash out. In the next episode, you’ll see the verbal filter most of us keep in place just dissolved. There was no holding back. No boundaries. Nothing was off limits. The cork on ten-years’ worth of anger popped. All that bottled-up ugliness exploded all over the castle. We said and did things that, under any other circumstances, wouldn’t have happened. In Lake George, it all came out. Taking our relationships out of New Jersey and putting them this alternate reality made us all go nuts.

I’m not proud of some of the things I said. I certainly don’t enjoy watching us at our worst. We do eventually figure out a way to climb up from rock bottom.

Jacqueline’s Response to Joe Giudice
By Jacqueline Laurita
Monday, July 15, 2013 10:32 AM

As I said before, I had no business going on that retreat. I would have only been a distraction from Teresa and her family getting to the core of their issues, which had absolutely nothing to do with me. I felt like I had nothing to gain from going. I was not part of Teresa’s family, and at that point, I had no desire to try and mend any sort of relationship with Teresa. I heard that she was constantly talking behind my back, and it was obvious to me that she had no desire to mend things with me either. Being dared to go on the trip isn’t exactly extending an olive branch. It sounded more like she was waiting to beat me over the head with it.

I felt like I had enough on my plate without adding a pile of nonsense to it. That last phone call with Teresa was a reminder of how she brings out the worst in me. I didn’t need extra stress in my life. My focus needed to be on my own family and their needs.

Right after the nasty phone call with Teresa, I was so annoyed that I let her get me upset again. I decided to tweet: “When you argue with a moron, you become a moron. You have to rise above and remember who and what is really important in life. Some things don’t matter. Let it go.” My tweet wasn’t directed at Teresa, but, it was most definitely inspired by her and her people that were hate tweeting me.

It was a reminder for me not to let Teresa get to me anymore, to stop reacting to her ridiculous accusations, and to keep my focus on more important things that matter in my life. I may react impulsively at times, but if I feel a certain way about something or someone, I have no problem expressing how I feel and owning it, publicly or not. I’ve noticed that a lot of you tweet impulsively too. LOL!

As far as Teresa’s comment about my having time to tweet, when your child is in school and therapy 9 hours a day, there’s time to tweet…among other things. Just pointing that out.

Teresa may not have tweeted derogatory things about me, but I believed she was still voicing her strong opinions of me through other avenues and would get mutual acquaintances to be her voice for her. We are both guilty about having talked badly about each other. If you’re honest, some of you are just as guilty of talking badly about people in your own life. You even talk about us and you have never even met us. LOL!

It’s hard to explain to people what it’s like to raise a child with special needs. The Autism spectrum is so wide that everyone has their own unique struggles, some more, some less than others. One thing for sure is that we all face our joys, our challenges, and some heartache every single day.

My response to what Joe Giudice said about Autism is simply this: Autism is a developmental disorder that requires a LOT of extra time and special attention that sometimes parents of typical kids find it hard to understand. Google it.

It is true that many children on the Autism spectrum are geniuses and become talented artists, musicians, and other great professionals at the top of their fields. I think it’s because many have amazing memories and can keep an extreme focus for long periods of time on things they are passionate about. Kids on the spectrum need to be given the right early interventions and tools for learning, structure, consistency, attention, love, patience, communication, and socialization skills, special diets and supplements among many other things in order to progress and thrive. It takes a lot of love, patience, understanding, and perseverance to guide them. Raising a special needs child is not an easy task, but it is very rewarding. I am very proud of Nicholas, as well as I am with all of my children. They are truly a blessing.

    They are probably trying to bounce scare that they would get arrested. 1. Posion was the aggressor & melissa and Kathy- co defenders since they were slapping and punching the shyte out of Juicy. They are lucky that Tre was trying to get security to come split them or else, she is like a beast when she is pissed off. LOL

      1. Teresa must not be THAT educated (like NOT) or she would not have signed a 5 year contract.
      2. No way I want to see Joe G (take your pick as to whether either one is a smidge different from the other) in a bathroom hot tub. Does not make for a good Sunday night fantasy.
      3. Wrong again. When you are married, you choose your spouse, “not your blood”. Someone is not reading their Bible, nor are they listening to Dr. Laura. Shame.

      • gemini82
        July 15, 2013 at 6:35 PM

        All the originals contracts signed a 5 year contract for all the housewives. You have a point about the bathroom scene. As for choosing your spouse over blood, of course that is who you should choose. The thing is that you shouldn’t throw your blood away because your spouse can always divorce you. When your spouse take everything (house, kids, money), who the hell is going to be there to pick you up and stand by you? Your blood, that’s who. Joey seems to have thrown his sister and parents away in favor of Melissa. That is his choice but if things don’t go well with Melissa, he better not think that his blood should give a shit about him, not after the way he has treated them.

          July 15, 2013 at 6:46 PM

          gemini82 – you have a great point about not choosing your spouse over blood. The above commenter is obviously not understanding what is going on.

          Teresa tweeted last week when someone asked her what she was talking about with this that she was talking about Jacqueline and to watch the show. Teresa was also talking about how Josephine was listening and believing the blogs, and all the social media chatter without making any effort to find out the truth from his own sister. He was listening to strangers over his own sister.

          In no way was Teresa referring to Melissa in this exchange.

          Spot on Gemini. i don’t agree entirely with chebella’s comments because #1 is just snarky and without the details you provided about the early contracts. #2) I agree to the extent I don’t want to see ANY of the husbands in a hot tub, least of all Joey Gorga and Rich Wakile. Ewww. 3) I really do not believe you choose your spouse over blood – blindly and completely. Especially if they are a real tool like Melissa. AND In my experience couples who talk about sex all the time and engage in vulgar PDA’s like the Gorgas are really sending a different message than they think. Everyone automatically suspects “they ain’t getting any.” And I should add with Joey Gorga’s roid use that’s morel likely than you think.

          Love Juicy beating that little crybaby the way he deserved.

            There is a scene at the beginning of the episode that sent chills down my spine.
            Gorgas packing for the retreat, M sitting on the bed talking to one of the kids, the bra strap slides off her shoulder and the “man” makes a motion toward her shoulder. Whether he wanted to fix the strap or kiss her shoulder, her reaction and her face is very telling. She shrug like he was contagious, don’t touch that, get away – ice cold. Not much love there.
            Am I reading it wrong?
            For some reason that scene and her face stuck with me.

            • July 15, 2013 at 9:48 PM

              You are not reading it wrong. This entire scene is clipped and nipped. I believe this scene was filmed right before Melissa and Kathy went to Las Vegas. Why would Melissa pack that dress to stay warm in St. George. Then after the dress is packed, it appears on the closet wall. Little Joey looks likes he is hauling Kathy’s luggage. Rich is filming a TH in the Gorga’s pool room. Last but not least, Melissa seems to have no hair extensions in her talking head. I will figure this out. LOL

                I don’t want to go there. The kid is innocent, he may read this one day.
                I would rather go on the merits of the Marcos – it is despicable what they do to Teresa’s family. They will not stop until she is homeless.
                Are we gonna go on the streets to manifest our solidarity with Giudice family and Senior Gorga?
                I am ready to go.
                Filthy, greedy, discussing, despicable, disgrace, horrifying – can go on & on.
                Team T. – she can do no wrong by me. Enough of this.
                Her kids are going to public schools, I assume. You must be a lunatic thinking they don’t hear, and are not bullied about this. what about her parents – T. disconnect TV, but then you have neighbor’s… I admire how T. is cool as a cucumber about this.
                I am laid back, patient, and forgiving, I have seen things in my life, family = blood first.
                This is unforgivable.
                Garbage, nuts, ape, c*, scum, moron, and many more that I cannot recall right now – done, no more of this T. Do not take this any more, you did not sign up for this. I know you can take it, but enough is enough. You and your family will need a therapy.
                This is the only reason I am glued to TV on Sunday – to make sure Teresa is fine, I guess that is how Bravo gets the ratings.

                Fame, do me a favor – block me, I should be doing other things.

          Joey gorga is a little baby with a poopie diaper. He goeas wha wha and throws food at those who feed him, wipe is ass, and support him. He has a cool new friend he pays all attention to, and to be popular, he joins his friend in teasing his sister, being cruel to her to get his new friend’s approval and acceptance, forgetting its his sister and not the cool friend who changes his diaper because he is not man enough to do it himself. So he tells his sister she is garbage and scum and won’t talk to her. When his cool friend finds someone better to hang out with, moves away, grows up, get’s fat, becomes a shoe salesman, little poopie pants wil go wha wha, pick me up! Carry me! Why you so mean? Why won’t you carry me? Why won’t you clean my dirty diapie? He is a shit. His wife is trash. Teresa is just a person. She can only take so much ungrateful shit thrown in her face while changing Little Joey.

I think it was the cook off episode when Joey took his pants & shirt off as a dare and ran to someones RV? I felt embarrassed for him because he was trying to hard so hard to be ‘liked’ by his new friends!

She stopped blogging in protest, although who knows how long that lasted before Bravo slapped her around w her contract. I always keep that in mind when I read the blogs, esp when people claim “ghostwriter”. To me, ghostwriter = Bravo editor.

        Every marriage experiences problems even when they are committed and in love. Last year Joe and Teresa’s marital discord was shown to the world. I do believe that he loves her, but he was going through a difficult time with pending trials and the show. I think the bath-tub scene was to show people this year that their marriage survived the test of last year and there is love. Joe defending her honor and the romance is still there. Some might find it disgusting to see but can’t you understand their need to show love survives through difficult times and shut the naysayers up about their marriage.

      • July 15, 2013 at 9:18 PM

        1. God takes everything meant for evil and turns in into something good. Teresa is learning who she can trust and who she can not trust. She has been paying off her debts because of the money from the show and all the things she sells. Signing a 5 year contract her employer wants her stuck in because it rakes in the profits.

        2. You will have to turn the channel. Just curious, what does a person who reads their bible regularly watch in order to make a Sunday night fantasy?

        3. Wow, I thought God was the authority for His words. Dr. Laura, no thanks. I will stick to listening to the One who wrote the words.

        Does this sound right? – Teresa should shut the door on her brother, her blood. She did not need to go to therapy and “help” his broken heart. She did not need to plan a retreat. She needs to cut him off like a rotten limb on her tree and stick with her husband and children. No, it is not right. Ask anyone if God would desire them to toss someone aside who claims they want to make peace?

        He wants to hurt her, he said so. He does not want to make peace. He bemoans to anyone who will listen about his broken heart. He needs to let go and hang on to his wife. Teresa is not his mother and she is not is girlfriend or wife. She is not responsible for his marriage. People who seek truth are blessed with it. People who seek peace are blessed with it. People who seek find.

          Hi, my fellow Okie! I think Teresa looks very pretty in the bath tub scene. Your right the Giudice’s are sweet, silly & lighthearted! I really do believe that the airing of the past 2 season’s have made the Giudice’s marriage stronger. You know, if Teresa wrote a book detailing what her marriage went through during the bankruptcy filing to now I would buy the book! I think her words on how a marriage can survive some pretty rough patches would be more real than her skanky brother’s wife’s book! You know, the woman who once danced for Angelo at Looker’s gentlemen’s club? The lady accussed of cheating on Teresa’s brother in a a parked car at the Suschi Lounge? On twitter last night someone put that they want to marry Tre’s SIL! Then someone replied (I’m paraphrasing here), “that’s fine with me, just don’t leave her alone in a parking lot at the Suschi Lounge!”. Too funny!

            Teresa should write a book about her time on RHONJ and how it effected her life bout her bankruptcy and how that effected and changed her at least she is writing from expirence and would know what she was talking about. I reckon that would be a best seller and a “real book” that she could shove up meho’s ass.

            I am sorry I was not back on to reply am having eye issues. However I must commend your idea of a marriage and family book proposal authored by Teresa. I most definitely concur for numerous reasons. I am fascinated by Teresa’s first generation immigrant experience, her ancestors and heritage that she so clearly honors and respects. I am also very curious about her childhood especially the intertwining history of the Gorgas and the Guidices. I fi d myself fascinated by the fact that Tre and Juicy were childhood sweethearts. Teresa seems to be a good old fashioned Italian American princess . The Guidices suffered a huge financial meltdown along with the entire country and yet somehow survived. She became the primary breadwinner out of sheer necessity and is clearly a tireless and energetic entrepreneur, mini CEO , devoted wife and mother. She is truly loyal which is a rare quality these days. She and Joe have endured the fire and fury of public scorn and come out on the other side, marriage and family intact. Yes I would read a book by Teresa. She is the genuine article and the real deal!

    • July 15, 2013 at 2:10 PM

      She is Teresa’s friend of five years and co-writer of her cookbooks.


      Here are some of her comments today:

      Kim D. told him to his face that it was her. Jacqueline & Melissa told Joey that it was Teresa, and that’s who he believed.

      Teresa just couldn’t understand why he would take a relative stranger’s word over hers. That’s the blood vs water. Not Melissa. Jacqueline.

      They not only associate with her, they *apologized* to Kim! Breaks Teresa’s heart. She doesn’t deserve this.

      Melissa Staats ‏@StaatsMelissa
      @HeatherMaclean @teresaisthebest I really felt bad for Teresa . & when her brother called her that my heart broke .

      Responding to @StaatsMelissa tweet above:
      @StaatsMelissa I truly think he’s just doing it for the cameras & thinks someday he can take it all back. No one can really be that ugly.

      @StaatsMelissa I know. I don’t know if his family will be there when he wants to take it back. 😦

      So Melissa went to magazine after magazine complaining that Teresa was trying to ruin her marriage when T never said a single thing.

      Now Teresa’s own family is on camera saying she has a fake marriage & her husband cheats on her. KNOWING HER KIDS WILL HEAR THIS. #Sick

      And for the record, as far as I know & I’ve been with them a lot, they have a wonderful marriage. They’ve been in love since they were kids!

      Teresa & Joe are adorable together. They’re best friends. They grew up together. He’s a great dad. You cannot believe the love in that house

      Lou ‏@ThenameisLou
      @HeatherMaclean Kathy said her mom & teresa’s dad arent talking coz of the show drama. It was real necessary 4 them to join the show, right?

      Responding to @ThenameisLou tweet above:
      @ThenameisLou Any drama is b/c Kathy joined the show behind everyone’s back to trash Teresa. But Kathy’s going to “fix it” right?

      We’ve been great friends for 5 years. Believe me if she was even 1% like the media make her out to be we wouldn’t be. xx

      They edited several phone calls together. Work, family, friends… If there was a mistress wouldn’t she have cashed in by now?

      …you hate for days while your kids are stuck in NJ w/ a hurricane? He got pissed off & it slipped out. Not cool but human.

      She picked it up somewhere & kept using it all last yr (I yelled at her every time b/c I hate it). Filming w/the RVs w/ ppl…

      Jac was angry at the reunion for something T said to her so she threw it out. It’s not true. Esp the desk story.

      What are the odds that @BravoAndy will bring that back up to her at the Reunion? Or *any* of her hypocrisy? 1trillion-to-1 😦

      Kylee ‏@Harmonylee219
      @HeatherMaclean @realityjulie I have always seen Joe being real, & 4 most of us being real means not being perfect, I adore him!!

      Responding to @Harmonylee219 tweet above:
      His handsomeness & charm don’t come across on camera like they do in real life. And his heart.

      Mariah Melis ‏@mariahhh_brittt
      @HeatherMaclean does Teresa have a say to the editing? Makes me mad they portray her for someone she’s not!

      Responding to ‏@mariahhh_brittt tweet above:
      @mariahhh_brittt No. None of them do. And they certainly have enough footage to patch together anything they want. 😦

      Tim(mer) ‏@timmer_83
      @HeatherMaclean what info do u know about the infamous tapes Joe & Melissa sent to Bravo in desperate attempts to get on the show?

      Responding to @timmer_83 tweet above:
      @timmer_83 Nope. No idea if they exist or not. Really, really hope not.

      Now Teresa’s own family is on camera saying she has a fake marriage & her husband cheats on her. KNOWING HER KIDS WILL HEAR THIS. #Sick

      katrina mcneil ‏@baddestchick713
      @HeatherMaclean everything comes to the light,bc when your cheating u always gets caught.Yeah he defends breathe fullest n the open.

      Responding to ‏@baddestchick713 above:
      @baddestchick713 That’s exactly what Teresa thinks: the truth always comes out. Nothing’s come out yet, so she lives and she loves.

      Does anyone think Teresa could have caught Joe cheating & been cool with it? As skeeved out as she is about “used” things. 😉

    As so many others have pointed out, TSIL expects Teresa to jump through hoops and walk on flaming coals to defend her. If Teresa does not react the exact way TSIL wants her to, she is “poison” and a “monster”.

    First of all, with the exception of “witch”, does Teresa routinely call TSIL names? Yet Josephine and TSIL hurl them out constantly.

    Secondly, as Fame has pointed out in the article, Teresa was repeatedly slammed in last night’s episode, with TSIL and Josephine making their own contributions and joining in on the bashfest. I cannot recall TSIL ever defending her – ever.

    And, of course, TSIL will NEVER address her own bad behavior, such as whispering about Joe and Teresa’s marriage, because in her eyes, she has never done anything wrong. But she has no problem calling out Teresa for what she perceives as being wrong towards her.

    Nothing new here – We all know this is a double standard practiced by all of them.

      And TSIL – the one with the teaching degree pulled another doozy with her TH last night:

      “I think Joe Giudice is so into these games because his brain could understand the CONTENT of what we were doing.”

      Here ya go TSIL – a small English lesson but as someone who has been educated to be a teacher I would think you would know these elementary definitions and how to use them properly in a sentence, especially when you are making fun of someone else’s brain function.

      CONTENT: noun.
      1.A state of satisfaction.Eg: “the greater part of the century was a time of content”.
      2.The things that are held or included in something.

      CONTEXT: noun.
      1.The circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
      2.The parts of something written or spoken that immediately precede and follow a word or passage and clarify its meaning.

    July 15, 2013 at 2:56 PM

    I posted this on the previous post. I would have written it here if I had seen that Fame had put up a new post about mego and jack’s blogs. This was in response to jack saying we talk about her even though we don’t know her:
    Does she not realize that signing up for a reality show gives people the access to her life and cast opinions/judgements about her and what she puts out there for the world to see? The same goes for everyone else who signs up for reality tv whether it is bravo tv or some other major network. When people sign that dotted line, it’s a given that they will be scrutinized for every little action or inaction. This is what she wanted. For her to write that we talk about her even though we don’t know her personally was, in my opinion, a jab at us, the viewers. We do the same with other public figures, such as politicians, A-listers, other notable figures in the public eye. Are we supposed to go meet them, shake their hand, sit down and talk with them before we cast our vote, write our opinion, cast our judgement, etc? We all know we are not going to or be able to sit down with a figure of notoriety of any kind. That is why we have these different mediums of the media. To give us access. So before she starts complaining, which she already has, she needs remember, which she already has forgotten, this is what she signed up.

    • Jeannie5233
      July 15, 2013 at 3:10 PM

      You are right in seeing her statement as a jab to the viewers. Jacs has no problem calling the veiwers who don’t like, disagree or question her “haters”. Teresa has made it clear she will never do that because love her or hate her, ALL the viewers are her bread and butter.

      That being said, I think Jacs is wrong in saying we don’t even know her. I probably know more about her than my own town mayor (sad I know!). Yes, we only see a partial glimpse into these people’s lives, but it certanly is enough to be able form intelligent decisions as to who or what these people are about. As you said, she’s on a reality show and she is going to be challenged, to say the least by the viewers when they see something is not quite kosher. As TSIL has said, “You’re a Jersey girl! Toughen up!”

      And, frankly, just witnessing the trainwreck that was Jacs behavior at the last Reunion was quite enough for me to be able to discern what kind of person she is.

        I pretty much commented the same thing on Jackal’s blog:

        “You even talk about us and you haven’t even met us”…….we see you guys for what you are. You can’t blame editing or our “lack of intelligence” every time someone take umbrage with the things you say or do. To throw Teresa under the bus the way you did whether she was wrong or NOT was the action of a snake! She was supposed to be your friend and it was quite clear to us that Teresa was uncomfortable with the bald guys revelations. Maybe you should have taken your high ground then and stayed out of it. You helped to further damage their relationship and you seemed to love it. I may not know you personally but the image you put out for the entire world to see is a whackjob who is obsessed with Teresa, unable to take accountability for your own actions. Google THAT….your picture comes up…..next to Melissa’s.

        I was a little enraged. They all stink.

          Great comment tboz – hope they published it because it deserves to be read. People keep saying to Teresa to keep Jacs out of the equation; Caroline at their meeting, and now Kathy and Josephine. But Teresa is right – Jacs did play a role in helping to cause the rift from the fashion show. She should have minded her own business and like Teresa said, kept her mouth shut. All she did, and gladly I might add, was add fuel to the fire.

          She had the nerve to tweet last night:

I actually feel sorry for her at times, she’s seriously deluded and the waxing comment was akin to the bleaching comment last night….at least Danielle’s daughters were quick enough to call her out for being a “creepy stalker”. Jac is unhindered in vileness it seems. Chris must be cringing though!

            I also want Caroline to “do the right thing” and call Jac out. At least that’s something we could get on board with! The other stuff she’s “trying to mend” is BS and she must know that we know that.

It’s amazing the amount of vulgarity that comes out of her mouth and then she blames us for being haters. Um, ha-llooo?! We only respond in kind by the behavior she puts out there. Tre is so much better off without Jack in life. I agree with both of you that Jack says everyone needs to own their shit, but won’t even acknowledge what she has done in the past.

            I would be very interested to know how many people, myself included, were not really fans of Teresa until Season 3 unfolded and saw what was going on.

            Actually, what Josephine and TSIL probably didn’t understand, by going on the show, they actually helped to build Teresa’s fan base to what it is today.

            But, that being said, I know Teresa would trade it all in if she could have her family be whole and together instead of fractured.

              I didn’t care much for Teresa in the beginning. I didn’t dislike her but I didn’t agree with a lot of things she said or did…especially in regards to Danielle. But she did make me laugh. She was always goofy and I like that about her. She never tried to portray that she was perfect or above anyone else and I admired that.

              Caroline – I disliked her the moment I saw her on my screen. I always thought of her as meddling and over bearing. I never bought her “I’m the wise one/ mother hen of the group” act. I always thought she was a bully. She used to annoy/frustrate me to say the least. She was definitely in the wrong to bring up Danielles’ past and to crucify her for it.

              Jacqueline – I was on the fence about her in the beginning. I thought she was sweet and friendly but very naive. Someone who followed other people blindly. She didn’t seem to have a backbone. But slowly but surely she started displaying her crazy side. Now I can’t stand her.

              As a group, I never agreed with their treatment of Danielle no matter what she might have done in the past and no matter how coocoo she came across at times. She didn’t deserve that.

                As I’ve said on here before, Danielle was “the villain” in a cartoon kinda way, the one we all loved to hate but TSIL churns up my insides, I hate the way she makes me feel with the horrible things that she has done to Tre an her family. Everytime I see Teresa’s folks I want to cry now, and although I have always been partial to Teresa, Dina was my original favourite and it’s not even my “intense love” for Tre that brings me to this site…..it’s the fact that I have seen a grave injustice unfold on my T.V for over 2 years now. If the shoe was on the other foot….I’d be visiting “JealousCrazyGiudice.com”……or something a little more creative! 😉 I’m sick of visiting other blogs an having the Whorga minions call me a Tre Hugger if I don’t like the other cast members behaviour. It cannot possibly be that we are astute and reasonable…..it must be because “We like Teresaaaa derp derp”.

                All that being said, given Teresa’s conduct this season and since this all started and the way she has handled herself….she has a massive respect from me, and she has earned it. I have always ALWAYS enjoyed the interaction between her and Juicy and the girls. She just so darned entertaining. The star of the show by a country mile! The others can GO SCRATCH!

    July 15, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    One of the first things I noticed watching the first episode of season one was Jacqueline’s obsession with Dina Manzo, her SIL. She was jealous and hyper-critical of her, as she is now with Teresa. Jacqueline seems to have a problem with women who are powerful and successful in their own right. Jacqueline is on the show only because of Dina Manzo. She said at the reunion Dina has “never acknowledged Nicholas.” How can she lie like that? Dina filmed with Jacqueline and Nicholas in season two. Jacqueline really does think viewers are dumb. She lies about everything. And I saw an interview once with Caroline where they asked, how did you get on the show. She said the tv scouts came to that salon and asked, who here in this town is “totally over the top, personality wise.” And they said, Dina Manzo. So they cast Dina first and then a bunch of her *real* friends turned it down and wanted nothing to do with reality tv. So they settled on Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline as the co-stars. This is exactly what Caroline said. But in multiple interviews recently Jacqueline tells a different story. She says, yes the scouts came into the salon looking for fabulous people. And the salon owner said to find Jacqueline Laurita. Well whatever, hahaha. Spin it the way you want. I just found Jacqueline’s obsessiveness regarding certain women to be very bizarre. And you can’t believe a damn word the woman says. Her and Melissa are perfect BFFs… they are fake bitches who hate real women.

        @Princess Vodka, Jax was very passive aggressive to Dina during the lady bug fundraiser . There seemed to be lots of underlying issues between Jax and Dina. They were only briefly touched upon. Now we know in hindsight that Jax was instrumental in scuttling Dina from the franchise by feeding the contract for Lexie to be on the show information to dirty Danielle. I believe Jax was exacting payback for Dina being so close to Chris former fiancee. IMO Dina was brilliant to leave . Jax gets a hard on for a perceived threat and she is not happy until she has destroyed them. Jax may play widdle innocent girl but make no mistake she is lethal . She has played Danielle, Dina, Ashlee and to some extent Caro and Melissa. Big dummy Melissa has likely confided enough to Jax that should Jax decide to sacrifice the Gorgas to secure another year of Bravo paychecks ….those two will go down im flames. Tre is the only person who managed to outwit and outplay Jax.

        • July 16, 2013 at 9:57 AM

          I remember that now about the contract and Dina being friends with the ex. Then of course at the table flip. Glad y’all’s memories are still intact! I totally think she has played Caroline and Melissa both, not to some extent, but probably to the FULLEST extent as they both still trust her and she is definitely one not to be trusted. Thanks for the reminders Ain’t!

        July 16, 2013 at 3:05 PM

        Well, for one thing when Danielle and Dina talk in that restaurant during Dina’s departure episode in season two, Danielle says something like (paraphrasing), “every bad thing I ever heard about you came straight from Jacqueline.” And Dina says “I’m gonna stop you right there.” She said then in her TH she had worked out her issues with Jacqueline (whatever they were) and she wasn’t going to listen to anything negative about her. Hmmm…

        July 16, 2013 at 3:44 PM

        Also princessvodka… there was a rumor Jacqueline said at the last reunion that Dina had told somebody (Teresa?) that Nicholas was “karma” for all of Jacqueline’s misdeeds. Of course, Bravo’s too smart, legally speaking, to publicize such a slanderous statement about Dina so it didn’t air during the reunion. So the next day, **somebody** feeds the story to Melissa Gorga’s mouthpiece on twitter (@QueenzOfMedia), and then when they write that same story on twitter, Dina responds directly that they are a lying POS: http://fauxrealityentertainment.com/lauritas_son_center_in_rhonj_circus/. But that’s not enough for Jacqueline. She actually tries to get this “karma” comment back in the mix AGAIN many months later with her last Bravo blog, saying “Nicholas is the best KARMA my husband and I have ever received:” http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-5/blogs/jacqueline-laurita/breaking-jacquelines-heart?page=0,1. With the Dina Manzo reference from twitter, saying Nicholas is great karma makes zero sense in her Bravo blog, right? If you read the blog as a whole, the karma comment comes totally out of left field unless you’ve already heard the Dina reference that was circulating on twitter.

    It’s just a matter of time before the crazy comes around — if you see someone behaving that irrationally toward someone else, eventually it will turn towards you. That comment can be directed toward Jac or Teresa’s SIL.

    I am loving Joe Giudice this season and the last couple. When that man’s mouth opens, the truth comes flying out, and I love that it’s a big “UP YOURS” to Bravo. He’s noted Melissa as Raccoon Eyes (seriously with the eye makeup???) as being the true trouble maker, he knows Richie is also an instigator, that Joe Gorga is a wimp, that Jax is unhinged, that Chris is a shady businessman. He’s got them all figured out and I love when it comes flying out of his mouth.

    I think Joe is very grounding for Teresa, and whether he cheats or not is none of my business, none of the Gorga’s business, none of anyone’s business really. It just isn’t relevant, if Teresa knows or doesn’t know, she’s the only one who needs or should have information like that. I’m not sure what Missy’s point (and stupid mouth breathing Richie) when they said there is no marriage, and how Joe Giudice cheats on Teresa. So? Even if that were true, Teresa’s not masquerading at this shindig as a marriage counselor, she’s trying to repair a sibling and cousin relationship.

    I think the edit has turned for Melissa and Joe, as well as Kathy and Richie.

    I can do with less Rosie, less of Melissa’s hag sisters (thankfully someone heard me on that) and if I never see Jax and her neck rolls and waxy face again, I’ll be in heaven.

    Albert should have thrown Caroline’s fat ugly ass off that bridge. Bitch please. You climbed that mountain in Italy, and now all of a sudden you are afraid of heights, crying out in your little girl voice? Disgusted.

        • July 15, 2013 at 8:43 PM

          The only friend I have who watches this show, said that those eyelashes look like garage doors, opening and closing. (I have many friends and many once watched this show. During the end of Season 1 and all of Season 2, we got together JUST to watch this show. Season 3 was the deal breaker and by the end of Season 4 it was just my friend and my daughter-in-law. My daughter-in-law dropped the show mid season. Bravo something is wrong here.)

        He isn’t really looking at the make up, he is distracted by the love in her eyes. Who doesn’t find that beautiful. They say the eyes are the windows to your soul.

        Why would anyone be jealous of Melissa…a D list reality star who’s airing her dirty laundry and her family issues on national TV for few bucks. Not to mention who feels the need to over sexualize her marriage just to prove she’s a happy wife. I doubt anyone sitting at home is jealous of a reality star…unless they are pre-teens who don’t know better or someone who hasn’t accomplished anything in their life…personally or professionally.

        And if anyone has to be jealous of someone…there are much better human beings/stars to be jealous of who are beautiful both inside and out!

      I have a different take and I actually liked that scene. Not because I like her, but it was fun and sweet and I could relate to them. I loved her running over the bridge — I too have a crazy fear of heights and get vertigo. I never noticed before that Albert is quite handsome.

      Climbing up hills in Italy is different than going over a tiny bridge with a huge drop. PS — I thought she stayed on the boat and babysat Tre’s kids, but don’t remember.

    NYGirlie:”After watching the preview for the next episode, I couldn’t help but feel bad for you. Not only does your husband get thrown so hard that his shoes fall off, but as you’re charging Guidice, you trip over one of hubby’s little fat shoes.

    Are any of the husbands on the other series such large parts of the show as Joey is? From what I have seen the wives are usually featured more than the men because its houseWIVES but Joey seems to get so much exposure on this version. He seems to be as much the “housewife” as Melissa, if not moreso. They need to rename it Teresa vs. Joey, Melissa, and the world since that is what they are trying to do anyway.

      None of the other franchises feature the husbands as much as NJ does Joey, Rich, and to an extent, Chris. And those awful Manzo boys.

        Thanks for that. I find the Manzo offspring to be smarmy, self-entitled, and offensive. I’ll never get past “spell napalm” Lauren Manzo…I give Teresa all of the credit in the world for not popping off on her. Teresa shows amazing self-restraint in certain situations.

This should be Teresa’s last contractual year. So from the reunion forward,Andy will have to keep Teresa very sweet to keep her on this show!

    When watching the previews for next week, I thought I heard Melissa blaming Tre for the fight between the Joe’s on Tre, because Tre ran out and told her husband what Baby Joey said! We all knew it would somehow be Teresa’s fault, right Messy? What a piece of transparent work!

    In case you are reading this Melissa darling, you instigated the fight all the way there by whispering sweet nothings in Joey’s ears about Teresa and Joe Guidice’s marriage. Then when you got there (big surprise) you played the victim and wanted an apology from your SIL for what other people are saying about you and your husband. Let’s not forget how your silly little husband called his sister scum. And as if that wasn’t enough, he got into a roid rage and charged his brother-in-law like a freaking crazed bull.

    So yeah, your right Melissa, it was Teresa’s fault! NOT!

    • Cee_See
      July 16, 2013 at 10:13 AM

      I have a little sister who is as manipulative as Melissa! After you see their pattern for deception, it’s shocking at first, but then things start to make sense! Melissa is a cruel person who is going to end up in hell if she doesn’t change her ways! It seems the root of Melissa’s problems is her insane jealousy! Pure and simple! Like my sister, Melissa seems to want EVERYONE to envy her! I found that the people who can easily tell other’s ‘Oh so and so is jealous of me!’ are usually the jealous ones!

      • corky21
        July 16, 2013 at 11:00 AM

        My situation exactly. My whole life I never believed in jealousy. I used to be called polly anna by my friends. I’m happy for everyone. Yet things used to happen to me all the time at work, with associates, and with my own sister. Whatever I did, or said, she did it better, it didn’t matter. It took me years and my mother to finally hammer it in to my head, they are jealous of you. I’m like what? For what? My mother said it doesn’t matter, how you look, sometimes even what you have, something you can’t even put your finger on, but it’s they are jealous of you for something. So yes, Melissa has been jealous since the day she met Teresa, and Joe G the same towards Juicy. Sadly, it will never go away, so I posted something about this a few weeks ago, but until the Gorga’s face their jealousy (which they can never do) the issue will never be resolved.

        • July 16, 2013 at 11:50 AM

          Theresa is Missy’s ideal version of a classy lady.
          Missy was a poor girl from a crappy area, and wanted desperately to be a classy lady like Theresa. It stings Missy that not only does Theresa know this, she doesn’t buy it.
          Joey looked up to Joe Giudice as a man.
          Joey realizes that he is not a man – he is a failure.
          So he hates Juicy, because seeing Juicy reminds him he isn’t really a man.

Which most of the people she would talk about were jealous of her! I caught my sister in numerous lies one time and confronted her about it! The first words out of her mouth was: YOUR SO JEALOUS OF ME! Then it hit me that she has a serious mental issues! Your mom sounds wise, Corky 21.

    Heather said that “the entire show being about destroying a family is sickening,” and gave her opinion of the Gorgas by tweeting: “The ‘family’ who signed up to do it, reprehensible.”

    I totally agree, Heather! And I am guilty as charged for watching this reprehensible destruction of a family. At this point, I am sucked into hoping for the truth to come out about the famewhoring Gorgas. Also, I am hoping to see Teresa happy again. I would really like to see Melissa andJ oey, Kathy and Richie, Jacqueline and Caroline admit their wrongdoings, but we all know that will never happen.

    Fame saw the Gorga’s for what they were from day one, and wanted the truth to be told! And because of this site, many people have learned the truth. Many others, like myself, realized that things were not adding up on RHONJ and loved how Fame was able to put it all into words in such a comprehensive manner. Go Fame!

  21. July 15, 2013 at 9:53 PM

    You are not reading it wrong. This entire scene is clipped and nipped. I believe this scene was filmed right before Melissa and Kathy went to Las Vegas. Why would Melissa pack that dress to stay warm in St. George. Then after the dress is packed, it appears on the closet wall. Little Joey looks likes he is hauling Kathy’s luggage. Rich is filming a TH in the Gorga’s pool room. Last but not least, Melissa seems to have no hair extensions in her talking head. I will figure this out. LOL

    My friend noticed that when Joe Guidice talked about Nick the alcohol glass was shown.

        From what I have seen the Christmas scenes are at Jac’s house and the nail salon where Teresa and her mother-in-law had their mani/pedi’s. When the outside of the salon is shown, it is decorated for Christmas. In the first episode there is a Santa figure on a table behind Chris and in every episode shot in the Laurita;s kitchen, you can see a school project, CJ as a Christmas elf on the refrigerator.

    I think that Juicy and Teresa have everything that Lookers was looking for in a marriage. They are friends lovers and like being together. Juicy is a great dad and loves his girls. He spends time with them from feeding them as babies to taking them places by himself. He is not afraid to cook dinner for Teresa and the girls. Then you look at Lookers and Fredo. He touches her and she pulls away. He owns her according to his own words. According to her, she takes care of the kids needs and cooks all the meals. He has never taken the kids anywhere without her.

    I believe that Lookers can’t understand why she in not loved and adored by everyone. Afterall she sisters always treated her as the queen of the house and let you do and say anything she wanted. Lookers, in my opinion, has a serous mental issues. She can never be wrong, never tell the truth and never put anyone above herself including her own children. I think they she believes that everything every bad word written or said about her comes from Teresa because everyone just loves her. It disgusts me every time I here the rest of the cast say “i heard Teresa was saying this” and “I heard Teresa saiid that”. Yes, most of them did hear those word but it was Lookers that told them that information based on what she read on the blog in comments by most of us here that see right through that evil witch.

    Teressa needs to be nice to Fredo and Lookers at family holidays. get the kids together as ofter as possible and not mess with them the rest of the time. Lookers will never change. She will always be the low grade trash version of Teresa.

        Isn’t it enlightening that MeGo makes cruel comments a bout the Guidice marriage a d alleges that Juicy cheats. Why hasn’t anyone ever come forward? Bryan ,MeGo’s partner was apparently an open secret in Melissa’s crowd. Hs is a gentleman and she is quite fortunate Bryan didn’t sell her out. So MeGo should be careful about all that fingerpointing considering her own past.

          There is more than one ex or side piece. While Fredo is away Lookers must play. He wanted her at home not in a NY studio so he had one made for her. He should have let her go to NY. More than a few wood boards were getting banged in that basement

          • July 16, 2013 at 10:27 AM

            He made a studio in their home because he didn’t like the thoughts in his head when he heard how many hours she would be spending with men working on her songs. I’m sure when he was a stripper, he encountered married women.

        • July 16, 2013 at 10:17 AM

          Teresa’s brother and his wife have much in common. He wants people to think he is like Juicy and what he says Juicy is like, is actually his character traits. He loves himself above everyone and his wife feels the same way about herself. When something happens when self sacrifice is required to make it through, they will crash unless they change their heart.

    In light of what Heather is saying about the contract and Tre trying to get fired after finding out Melissa was brought on, I now kind of wonder if this family feud was part of Bravo’s storyline plans all along. I mean, come on, what other housewives show has 5 year initial contracts before they know they have a product (Imagine how screwed they’d have been if they had done that with DC). Also, Tre has made a comment before about RHONJ interviewing Mel back before the first season started and simply not choosing her at that time. What if the Bravo interviewers saw the potential conflict in that interview and just started working toward a family feud since then, fueling the Melissa narcissist fire all the while. Then, when they’re ready to bring on Melissa, they already have Tre locked in and she has no real choice but to go along with it.

      This makes sense. You may be right about Bravo. I think all the cast members know by now that of all the things Bravo films, the majority of stuff they keep and air is revolving around Teresa and that is why her name is on their lips frequently..

    • July 16, 2013 at 12:40 AM

      Teresa’s reaction at the S2 reunion to the shit Melissa was feeding Danielle nailed it for getting the Gorgas on. It was TV gold, she “pushed” Andy back into his chair. Bravo is evil. I do believe that once they came on the “assigned producer” gave an outline of the scene — I also believe that for 2 years Teresa did not get the full script. Bravo wants the drama.

      • July 16, 2013 at 1:06 AM

        I also can’t forget Bonnie’s texts about Bravo telling Jac to be mean to Tre in S3.

        • Dianna
          July 16, 2013 at 11:10 AM

          Yes you are correct. Bonnie said Jac was asked to show Teresa in a bad light. Jac said no just to bring out truths. Then we have the deck fight and fashion show At the fashion show Jac lies and said she heard them she heard the man. And keeps says set up until Melissa agrees it was Teresa. I keep posting this on bravo blogs

          This is why Jac owes Teresa an apology…
          When Jacs walks outside the posche fashion show this is what she says “ you know what I heard them earlier and I heard him say something like I’m gonna try and embarrass her or something like that. You know what this was a set up. (M responds) J- No I think it was a set up. (M responds). J- that’s what I’m saying well I think that she’s the 1 that set it up I’m kinda annoyed at her right now. Because I heard something earlier. Etc.

          Don’t know if it shows up half the time. But I keep posting it. Hopefully people will read it and see the manipulation going on.

    • July 16, 2013 at 11:57 AM

      The contracts say, You work for US for 5 years, and you can’t quit. We, on the other hand don’t owe you anything, and we can cancel the show and our obligation to pay you at any time we want to.

      I’ve heard the Bravo contract was favorable to Bravo only. As is the case with most contracts. From what I understand, the housewives are required to sign on the dotted for a certain period of time with Bravo having the option to hire/fire as they deem fit, so they (Bravo) wouldn’t have been out anything had the show been a flop.

    Hi all. I just wanted to say that I’ve been coming to this site for over a year and it’s my daily fix. Its literally on my list of sites that are mandatory everyday along with my email and bank account lol. It’s important lol. Anyways this is my first time posting and I really enjoy everyone’s comments. I also enjoy how u guys are such a positive community. U guys are not just commentators on a blog, u all show each other support in numerous ways wether a new born, an illness, or just daily life issues. It’s hard sometimes to share things with others (maybe it’s just me) but I love how u guys always offer words of encouragement for each other. U use this platform for positivity with each other so I commend all of u guys. Also Fame i just wanted to tell u how fricking awesome u are. U have an incredible site. Yes an outsider can say this is just another “gossip blog” but that is not the case. I don’t know if u are a trained journalist but the research, information and truths u put out there is great. there’s nothing out there that compares to this site (I would know since I unfortunately read all of them lol). If you are not a trained journalist u should really consider it. Thank u always for the great articles and for telling the truth ALWAYS.

    Ok so now to my question lol… I saw on twitter that someone commented about a comment I don’t know who said it in last night episode but whoever did they said something to the effects “about making money together” can someone explain it to me. I saw the show last night twice but I think I missed that part on both occasions lol….. Thank you all

    • July 15, 2013 at 10:56 PM

      Hey Miamichica! I’m so glad FW is part of your daily routine! I do have a background in research and a degree in communications which have served me well throughout my various careers. Thank you for all the compliments 🙂

      I added a quote to this article after I first published it, which I missed the first time watching:

      Melissa, in response to the thumb wresting exercise: See, we could all be partners making money.

      This says it all: they are all jealous of Teresa’s business success and her ability to capitalize on the exposure from RHONJ from the very beginning. It’s all about the money and contracts (quoting Jacqueline).

      They Are All Jealous of Teresa Giudice’s Business Success

      HI Miamichica and Welcome to the Fame Fame-ily!!!! What a wondeful greeting card to open up this morning!!!

      You are absolutely right – Fame is the BEST out there and while we don’t really “know” each other, this community is filled with good, decent people all different ages, from all walks of life, and all over the world who care about one and other.

      On a personal level, I truly believe in my heart of hearts the prayers and the good vibes continually being sent my way from the wonderful people on this site are part of the reason that miraculously my mom, who is terminally ill, is still with me. Just this week, the hospice doctor examined her and is incredulous how she is holding her own under the circumstances. He’s scratchig his head – a month ago she was very close and now, once again, has pulled back a little from the edge.

      This site has been a sanctuary for me and I am grateful to Fame and to everyone here.

    • July 16, 2013 at 9:01 PM

      The facilitator said something about notice he said partners not competitors and what does that mean and Melissa piped up with the making money together comment. So in response to what the facilitator said.

      Re: this site. This is how awesome I think this site is… I am a Facebook addict. Bad. I decided over the weekend to stay off of Facebook for one month. I figure, really, do I need to know every single thing everyone of my hundreds of FB friends are doing? And, while I am sure my status updates are highly informative and entertaining, do they need to know every nuance of my life? So far, I’ve done REALLY good. Accidentally got on through a link twice now but got right back off. Now this site…I just about have a panic attack when I am having connectivity issues (which has been happening a lot lately). Everyone is so nice and supportive on her, even to Miss Dee. Even the few times I’ve been a jackass they’ve all been very sweet. Not only is Fame amazing, like you said, but there are others on here who keep us all very well informed as well. I also get a kick of hearing about all the little things in the episodes that I totally missed. LOL, the other day I was telling my husband about my friend so-and-so and he asked who the heck that was. I had to sheepishly let him know she was a Famewhorgas person who I have only communicated on the blog with. But, really, these folks DO seem like friends. And, just to be clear, I’m not a lonely, unsocial person with no real life friends 😀 Sorry for the rambling!

      Don’t be a stranger!

    • OldNJLady
      July 16, 2013 at 2:08 AM

      That is total BS. I don’t think the Sr Gorga have much left after Fredo got daddy to back him on a loan then took out a huge loan on it from a 3rd party. They 3rd party called the loan and when it could not be paid back they took the house. Fredo walked away with a huge chuck on cash and daddy lost everything and ruined his credit. Daddy on a shoe repair business. I don’t think they ever had that much money.

        when tsil said we could of all made money together and josephine saying they would have separate funerals, it just popped in my head. these too really only care about themselves. to me its beyond trying to be famewhores. after the last episode i feel like they are waiting for their parents to die so they can cash in and blame teresa. I know i should not feel this way but i really do. nothing or nobody will stop these two, they have no line they will not cross.

        • July 16, 2013 at 8:05 AM

          It’s interesting that even in death, Joey’s thinking of himself. Funerals to me are about honouring the person, and yes grieving, but how is splitting a service respectful. In life and death he makes them pawns.

      July 16, 2013 at 12:16 PM

      I don’t remember that blurb. I wish someone could post it. Teresa I think built a place for them on her property. Sometimes the camera pans around the property and there is pretty large building to the left of the house. Also, they talked last season about the Guidices building an apartment over their garage, and we did see Joe and the girls working. Gorilla Joe also made a comment off camera after his and Teresa’s therapy session about the parents. Teresa said to him why don’t you buy them a place, you’re doing well, something like that, then Joe sort of put her down about her expensive pocket book. Then no more dialogue. So my theory is Joe sold the house his parents lived in, and Teresa wanted him to buy them something else. In the meantime, Gorga didn’t, so Teresa has them on her property. I think Joe cost the parents money and dismay, and are happy with Teresa, so if she get’s whatever they have left. I say, good for her.

    You must be a lunatic thinking that her kids – going to public schools will not hear about this, or Senior Mr. Gorga does not hear about all this. I just hope they are strong enough to shake it off.
    My heart breaks for Giudice and Senior Gorga.

  28. July 16, 2013 at 2:10 AM

    So, I just watched the meeting with Jan. OMG. Teresa’s getting the good edit YIPEEE!
    If Missy wasn’t a stripper then I’m a monkey’s uncle. The whole stripping scene was just ….. uncomfortable and went nowhere towards dispelling the story.

    The whole drinks with Jac… Jac is a loon. Batshit crazy, certifiable and Missy is Ghetto fabulous – less the fabulous. Classless, trash, rough, uncouth. She has no idea of her viewing audience. We can see who she is and I believe without a shadow of a doubt that when she joined that family, she mimicked the way they did things. Myth busted. She manipulated the Jan meeting in her mind, her half truths turning ears and that is the root of this family’s drama full stop, end of story. The other women had a seed of jealously toward’s Teresa, Missy watered it with her tales and victim routine and here we are.

    I also don’t doubt for a second that she cheated. If I was in her position when I heard the news, I would have been as wound up as she was at drinks with Jac. She just looked caught. The shifty eye gave it away.

    It’s interesting to hear her asides without the Cat safety net.

    Oh and the “girlfriend lunch” where she slammed Teresa, the my husband this, my husband that, did she say something like “he showed me”…. that’s someone gloating. Those girls were lured by the cameras, not Missy.

    I kiss wreaked of desperation, not “unbreakable” because at that moment, the only fire in his loins were stoked by his sister (eeeew) not by the antics of a high school girl and Missy’s stuck mentally at 17.

    I thoroughly enjoy reading everyone’s posts! As others have said, it has become more enjoyable than actually watching the show. I read often, and I was on an old thread tonight and saw someone by the name of goldcoins79. This person directed personal insults at many of you, she also called everyone who disliked Messy “jealous”, and accused people of slander. Not sure if this rings a bell with anyone, but I truly believe it actually was Melissa. She has the same year of birth, 79, and even wished “Melissa” luck in Hollywood (Melissa has always expressed a delusional desire to be an actress). Her defensiveness gave her away too. Kinda like when a person is murdered by someone they know, and the killer’s excessive violence screams “the spouse did it”. No matter how much they stage the crime scene, the cops KNOW it wasn’t a stranger. I have always found her to be a cheap, obnoxious, pathological liar, but now I can add pathetic to the list. She’s a very sad woman. Doesn’t she have anything better to do; you’d think she’d be too busy spackling the faux veneer of her perfect life. She’s deliciously transparent. I’m off to bed, but I hope to chat with you all soon!

    …. what’s with the 10 years by the way? Missy and Joey have obsessed so much they’ve morphed into one! At the beginning of the year, they’d been married 8, so let’s stretch to 9 which would make the 10, 11. Maybe I’m pernickety, I just hate inconsistencies when Missy’s so about “fact”.

    With regards to filming, here is what we have seen so far and with the dates it was filmed:

    Between November 2 and November 10, the cast was filmed volunteering and helpng out in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    January 11, 2013 – Gia’s birthday party on at Space Odyssey

    Mid-January 2013 – Teresa and Caroline Manzo have discussion over coffee or tea on the the second-floor Chateau Room of at the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn & Tavern

    January 31, 2013 – Girls night out at Bellissimo’s restaurant with Penny Drosso, Jan Marie DeDolce, Jennifer Dalton, Kim D and Teresa — chatter was about Melissa having an extramarital affair

    February 10-12, 2013 – Retreat at Luxurious Inn at Erlowest, Lake George, NJ (rumored to be therapy session) – Wakiles, Rosie, Gorgas, Giudices

    Six days after the retreat, Teresa had her Milania Launch Party on February 18th. It was the first appearance the Gorgas and Giudices made together, seemingly getting along well together. Whether or not this will be shown remains to be seen. Based on the clip below, Penny Drossos and JanMarie DeDolce were in attendance (makes sense considering they are in the hair care industry) as well as Kim D. and Priscilla DeStasio who is Teresa’s friend and makeup artist.

    In the following clip (turn the sound off if you can’t stand the annoying music put on a loop) you will see various shots of the cast, notably Teresa speaking with JanMarie at 3:46 and Teresa, Joe, Kim D., Penny and JanMarie talking at the bar at 4:36. And an interesting shot of TSIL being persuaded to go over to Teresa for a photo op of the two of them sharing drinks at 5:35. TSL goes over and clicks her drink with Teresa, chats for two seconds, and then turns her back and begins to talk with Josephine.

          Exactly. Teresa is so far ahead of Meho, always has been. What a great looking event. Melissa must have been seething inside. Her little lip synch appearances at great adventure and the like are nothing. Her songs stink too. Her book will be off shelves for low sales within a few weeks too. Good for Teresa. I bought her cookbooks, and I’m not a cook, but I’ve tried a few and they are easy and quick and delicious. I will try her hair care product too.

    • July 16, 2013 at 9:50 AM

      Did TSIL look pissed off talking to Joey after the drink clicking with Teresa? Any lip readers out there? Who was the girl in the green dress that kept showing up?

      • Jeannie5233
        July 16, 2013 at 9:58 AM

        There are two women in a green dress. One of them is Priscilla DeStasio – Teresa’s makeup artist and friend.

        And while I can’t read lips, Yes, TSIL does look a bit annoyed when she turns to talk with Josephine! As you can see, a man steps in and begins to speak to Teresa and doesn’t acknowledge TSIL. Maybe it’s because she is not the center of attention at this event.

        • July 16, 2013 at 1:42 PM

          That is my take on it. The guy did not acknowledge TSIL at all. What was the twirl around display infront of Teresa for? Does TSIL use Milania hair care?

    Thanks Debbie J! While Fame more than likely will post it and blog, I am going to go ahead and do it for Happy Holly Daze and those who cannot access Bravo’s website.

    Teresa Giudice
    Melissa’s Meddling

    Teresa wishes Melissa would have let her talk to her brother without interference.
    July 16, 2013

    Hi Loveys!

    First I have to tell you, from the bottom of my heart, how much I appreciate you all. I see your Tweets and messages and emails defending me and my family. (Unlike Melissa and Kathy I guess, I do read Twitter!) I love how smart and sweet and loyal and fair you all are. I love that my fans like @Team_Giudice say that they love Melissa because she’s the mother of my niece and nephews even if they don’t agree with her all the time. I feel the same way! Thank you all for seeing the bigger picture, for seeing through the hypocrisy, for calling out what you know is the truth, and for being kind and classy. I know you are because I have met you all over the country and my fans are always the same: AMAZING.

    I have no idea why some of my own family members said the things they did on this episode. It’s beyond hurtful. Kids are supposed to be off limits, but they talk about mine. Marriages are supposed to be off limits, but they talk about mine. As much as Melissa likes to talk to everyone about me trying to break up her marriage, I have never, ever done that and I never would. I’ve always said the opposite and I’ll say it again: I hope they stay married for a hundred years because they’re my family and parents of my niece and nephews.

    Melissa knows I’ve never tried to, so instead she complains I sit and listen to people talking bad about her so instead she complains I sit and listen to people talking badly about her when she knew very well I had nothing to do with it. She claims she hears rumors about me doing things to hurt her, but when you go and talk to anyone in our town — my friends, Kim D., Melissa’s “old friends,” even Melissa’s ex-boss and ex-boyfriend — they will tell you it’s not true. I have nothing to do with digging up dirt on her. For one, I could care less about her past. For two, I am busy raising 4 daughters, writing 4 cookbooks, and running my Fabellini, Milania hair products, Skinny Italian Food, and Fabulicious dessert line! Busy!

    It is interesting that this episode was filmed this winter, and this spring we all filmed with Andy Cohen for the WWHL special. Melissa was again crying that I was trying to break up her marriage (I guess I should be glad that that rumor is the only thing she can come up with about me, right?) and told Andy that you don’t mess with anyone’s marriage. That was a line she wouldn’t cross. Wow. Yet she crossed it this episode. Like ran across it with a Mack truck. How could she sit there with a straight face and tell Andy she would never do that when she had JUST done it? I shouldn’t be surprised because I know her, but I am. I was surprised and sickened by what she said about my marriage. And she did it, trashed me and my marriage on national TV, while she was supposedly writing her own advice book about marriage? She is very, very lucky that I’m keeping quiet about the things I do know. Let’s just say if you believe one word out of Melissa’s mouth about anything, I’m sure she has a bridge she can sell you too. God Bless you both.

    I know I don’t have to defend myself about my marriage. Joe and I love each other and we have a very happy, not perfect, real marriage, just like anyone. Everyone who knows and loves me — even if you’ve just met me and Joe for five minutes — knows that. And everyone who knows and loves me are the only people that matter to me!

    I arranged the retreat for everyone so we could all heal. All of us. Rosie thought it was a good idea to invite Jacqueline and Caroline because they were part of it. Jacqueline was an important part because she had been my close friend for 10 years. So when she snapped last year and decided to turn against me and hate me and say crazy things about me, some people listened because she had been my friend for so long (which is also why the betrayal hurt so badly).

    We all know Melissa was desperate to prove I had something to do with the “set-up” at the fashion show so she could focus on me instead of what whoever was trying to expose about her. Again, I could care less what she did or didn’t do in the past, but it wasn’t me. And she keeps trying to beat an apology out of me. I’m sorry but I can’t apologize for something I didn’t do.

    Kim D. explained very clearly to everyone a million times that Melissa was going after her business and her livelihood, so she was mad at Melissa and allowed someone Melissa used to work with to approach her. Melissa was mad at Kim, Kim was mad at Melissa. They tried to hurt each other. Kim apologized, and Melissa and my brother apologized to Kim. It should have been a done deal then, right?

    Except Jacqueline got involved. Jacqueline told my brother that it really was me. And for some reason I will never understand, my only brother, my own flesh and blood, chose to believe Jacqueline over me. I know this because he told me. He told me what Jacqueline said, that he believed her, and then texted me, “You’re dead to me.” And we didn’t speak for a YEAR following that. Not over the holidays, not through the hurricane, nothing. So, yes, I blamed Jacqueline. Why wouldn’t I? She knows she was lying, she knows her words had power because she was my friend, and she told my brother anyway.

    And Jacqueline, this is for you: I hate to bring this all up again, but I want people to understand how I was feeling at the time, and I want you to understand too. If I told your brother something about his wife that was dirty, and then he texted you, “You’re dead to me,” you would be upset too. I know we’ve moved past it, and I’m very happy for that. I love you and your family.

    So when we got together to heal after a year of not talking, I did want Jacqueline to be there so she could look my brother in the eye and tell him I didn’t have anything to do with it.

    I’ll admit, I didn’t want her there at first. I was so hurt by Jacqueline, but Rosie convinced me it was a good idea to invite Jacqueline and Caroline. So I made plans for them to be there. And they were supposedly coming. No one told me they weren’t going to come until the rest of them walked through the door. It hurt me because I was planning for it, and I really thought they could help.

    And then for Kathy to suggest that Jacqueline was far too busy taking care of her sick child was too much for me. I know Jacqueline had her hands full with Nicholas, but not so much that she can’t still be involved in my life, as we all see on Twitter. I wasn’t buying that as an excuse and neither was Joe.

    When Joe said that Autism won’t kill you and that scientists had it, he wasn’t being disrespectful, he was just trying to put things into perspective. Yes, Autism is a serious learning and communication condition, yes it’s a struggle, and it can be heartbreaking, but it’s not a fatal disease. Thank God! There is a huge difference between caring for a child with cancer or kidney disease and caring for a child with Autism. We have other friends, like our friends at NephCure who we see all the time, who aren’t as lucky. Kidney disease can kill you. Cancer can kill you. God willing, Nicholas will get better and grow up to have a healthy, normal life. Maybe even be a scientist! Whoever knows my husband knows he’s not malicious. Jacqueline and Chris, you know Joe would never mean anything bad about Nicholas. He has a special place in both of our hearts.

    So back to the retreat… I was really nervous especially when everyone arrived and it seemed like everyone except Rosie really didn’t want to be there. I could tell their hearts were not open and it broke mine. I wondered why they even came at all.

    I thought the team builders were adorable, and they did get us trusting and laughing pretty quickly. But then it went downhill. I finally had my brother face-to-face for the first time in a year, and all I wanted to do was get him to believe me over Jacqueline. That was my “blood over water” speech, I wasn’t talking about Melissa. P.S. When I joked about ghosts in the castle and said we had a “witch” coming, I was also talking about Jacqueline, not Melissa. Not nice, I know, but I was upset, it was a joke, and Jacqueline wasn’t joking with her rants about me on Twitter… Put yourself in my shoes. I don’t think it’s the worst thing I could have said.

    But every time I tried to get through to Joey, Melissa would whisper in his ear. At one point, she stepped right in front of me to contradict me and bring Joey “back to her.” It was beyond frustrating. We weren’t there talking about him and Melissa or their marriage or me and Melissa. We were supposed to be talking about me and him.

    Maybe if Melissa got on her knees in front of me before this point, we wouldn’t have any of these problems! If she was only that humble normally… Needless to say, her big dramatic pose had nothing to do with being humble or serious. She only did it to make me look bad. And it did make me mad, but I held it together. In real life…

    What else? I really hate when Kathy speaks about my parents because she doesn’t speak for them, and they have nothing to do with this. I don’t agree with what she said. Both of us know the true situation. Let’s leave it at that.

    And I do really appreciate Rosie and her heart. She didn’t sign up for this show, she was dragged into it. It put her in the middle, and of course she has to stick up for her sister, but I appreciate that she also sticks up for our whole family.

    I guess you’ll have to tune in next week to see how it all plays out.

    Tanti Baci,

      I find it ridiculous people claim Teresa has a “ghostwriter”. She may have some one edit it for her but you can HEAR her saying these things as you read them. And you can FEEL the pain and the hurt.

      After reading this blog I am not just convinced – I now KNOW – this family will never completely heal and IF they were in a “good place” before, they aren’t now and won’t be once the airing of the Season is over.

      The Reunion is going to be a hot mess – once again.

      • Debbie J
        July 16, 2013 at 11:42 AM

        I was just thinking the same thing Jeannie. The reunion is going to be the same as the last 2.

      • July 16, 2013 at 12:33 PM

        ITA Jeannie. I hope Teresa can just cut all this negativity out of her life and move on. Nothing wrong with being cordial but at some point she needs to realize that there is too much water under the bridge and that there is no way to fix this. She needs to cut them out of her life EMOTIONALLY. Not physically…still do holidays, special occasions, etc. but as far as being emotionally vested (or is it INvested??), f that. She should never, and I mean never, ever, never in a million years ever, trust Loony or TSIL. And stumpy has proven he’s nothing more than dirt under her feet. All this effort has done nothing to repair their relationship and has made things even more stressful for their parents, I’m sure.

        • Jeannie5233
          July 16, 2013 at 12:42 PM

          I agree Princess about cutting them out emotionally – she really needs to do that at the very least. The problem is this will all blow up in Teresa’s face again at some point – whether they are still on the show or not. And TSIL will use her children as weapons, as she continues to even just before the fight at the Retreat. She won’t let Teresa see her niece and her nephews and Josephine will go along with whatever TSIL says – as he has always done because while he continually professess to be “a man”, he has no cajones to stand up to her – she castrated him a long time ago. That’s why Teresa tells him to get some balls.

          • July 16, 2013 at 12:52 PM

            Jeannie, so be it then. That is the attitude she has to take. I know it’s awful, but at this point, that is the healthiest thing for Teresa, her family, and even the Gorga kids. No matter what Teresa says or does, stumpy and hooker will use those kids regardless. One of these days those kids will be old enough to form their own opinion and they WILL resent their parents for not being mature enough to allow them to have a relationship with the Giudices regardless of how the parents get along. She can use this “I don’t want my kids hearing…” crap all she wants but it is obvious that she is going to pull out every trick in her hat to hurt Teresa. It’s disgusting.

            Has anyone watch closet confessions yet? She cracks me up!

            • July 16, 2013 at 1:03 PM

              24:05 and on is a must see… She describes the Joey running towards Joe…hilarious!!

    I began watching RHONJ starting with S3. I loved all the drama and kept trying to figure out who was the real trouble maker, Tre or Messy. Then I caught up on the first two seasons whenever they were showing marathons on Bravo. I formed an opinion that either Tre was crazy (table flip), or a really smart actress who knew how to bring the ratings in (table flip)!! Either way, I liked her. Clearly, she was sincere. Then I watched her on Celebrity Apprentice and I was shocked at how NORMAL and INTELLIGENT she was. That is when I became a fan. Team Teresa all the way!!Someone mentioned this blog to me and I think I have read every word ever written. I love this blog! Fame, you are awesome! It is quite clear to me that the Guidices are a wonderful loving family, terrific parents, hard workers, funny, and delightful to watch. They stay true to themselves and have stood their ground against unscrupulous family and friends hell-bent on destroying them with their jealousy. I hope they all get the “edit” they deserve. Especially whacko-jacko, the biggest disappointment ever, in my humble opinion.

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

  42. July 16, 2013 at 11:00 AM

    None of these blogs addressed the fight. I am sure all of the women said something about it and it was edited out by Bravo because they have to wait to talk about it until it airs in its entirety next week. I remember one of the Beverly Hills housewives, I think Brandi saying that they take stuff out and will add it to next week’s blog in order to keep the story line moving. Heather Maclean has said that also. Always makes me wonder what else they’re taking out!

    • Jeannie5233
      July 16, 2013 at 11:38 AM

      In the extended fight footage, after the two Joes are pulled apart, Josephine screams to Joe “You made me be a bum like you!!”

      So, in other words, once again taking no accountablility for HIS actions and deflecting HIS disgusting behavior onto Teresa and Joe, he is blaming them for charging Joe, fighting dirty, and biting Joe’s nuts. Incredible!!

      I can almost read it now – SIL will bring this up in her blog next week and say something like “Teresa and Joe made us stoop to their level!” just as Josephine said in his TH “they wouldn’t stoop to Teresa’s level” when he admonished TSIL for the Chanel tweet.

      These people NEVER take responsibility or admit to ANYTHING they have done wrong.

      I love you sweet lady – with all that you and your family are going through, RHONJ is such trivial trash.

      We are all here for you and your beautiful little girl and send you both strength to see this all the way through.

      Your angel is one to be respected and held as a HERO- she is courageous to face those who hurt her.

      I, and I know all of us, will be sending our positive thoughts and for those of us who pray, lots of prayers your way.

      We walk with you Celi – I hope you know that. Always!!!! Take care of yourself!!!!

      Much love, hugs, and strength – Jeannie

        Keep the faith, and vent anytime, Celi!! XO

I know that our dear Lord will keep you strong Celi and bring you calm when you need it. Your love will heal your granddaughter. Miracles great and small occur not thru hate but all encompassing love. I hope your great, genuine love flows through you and heals your precious babygirl..May God bless you and keep you and grant you peace and strength for the difficult journey ahead.

    • July 16, 2013 at 2:09 PM

      Just Celi, I was molested by a family member. I am now 50 years old. It has been a long road, but yes, with Jesus, I have overcome many things. She is blessed to be surrounded by so much support. I did not have that. God can help her with her fears and her nightmares. Let her rest in her safe places as much as possible. Why? is a questioned that will haunt you because it can not be answered now. Don’t be afraid to take all your anger and pain to God. Release it,unleash it, get it out.

    • July 16, 2013 at 2:11 PM

      Oh Celi, I am so, so, so sorry. I didn’t know many details but had put two and two together but was hoping I was so very wrong. Please know we are all thinking of you and will be especially vigilant in our thoughts on Thursday. I’m not sure what in the hell is wrong with people and so very sorry this had to happen to your baby. Hopefully the people responsible will be punished to the full extent of the law. Much love to you and yours Celi ❤

Sometimes life does not seem fair, especially for your daughter. It does my heart good to know your faith is strong and this will all be behind your family soon.

    Just thought I’d share a response I read on the Bravo blogs:

    Nicole.eal.509 –

    “… And you are right in that this family has suffered irreparable damage however, I completely disagree with you regarding the cause. This lies solely on the shoulders of Joe and Melissa Gorga.

    You see, while Teresa does have some responsibility for saying, and/or doing things that have hurt the feelings (and Ego’s) of lil Joe and Missy, these things could, or shall I say, never DESTROY family. Get on someone’s nerves yes, but destroy??

    However, secretly campaigning to get on a show in which your sister is co-staring so that you can “expose her”, finally getting on National TV and calling your sister GARBAGE, throwing a tantrum to your father in an effort to emotionally manipulate him into “loving you more than Juicy”, airing his sisters PRIVATE family/financial matters, hijacking the same friends that you previously criticized your sister for “treating like family”, allowing your wife to manipulate you into saying things like “shame on you” to your sister on camera, publicly denouncing your sister while fabricating a story about moving to get away from her ( when the truth is that you simply cannot afford your house), allowing your wife to speak maliciously about your sister’s marriage and spouse, calling your sister SCUM three times to make sure the whole world is clear about how you really feel, and finally starting a physical fight with your sister’s hubby that you clearly COULD NOT finish, therefore childishly resorted to BITING A GROWN MAN’S BALLS like some wild animal I would say is the TRUE CAUSE for this families demise …

    While Teresa basically came on this show to share her love of family, friends, shopping, and food.”

    That pretty much sums it up folks!

      Lil Joe has had it with the trouble fat man has caused between him & his father .There is no doubt that fat man was whispering in the old man’s ear .It was stated at the beginning of the first season !Fat man thinks if he screws lil Joe over then the old man will leave all his wealth to them .He is a con through & through !I would have helped my man bet his fat — !

    I wasn’t offended by Jac’s blog as I usually am, I thought she was going to go after Joe and Teresa a lot more since they spoke about her. I thought it was refreshing that she didn’t so much, and Teresa addressed and stood up for at time.

        Saw it the other day. She’s hilarious. The last few minutes when she is describing how Joey charged Juicy was hilarious.
