Teresa Giudice’s Friend, Heather Maclean, Answers Viewers Questions on Twitter

July 28, 2013

s5 181 a

Teresa’s “very good friend” of five years and co-writer of her cookbooks, Heather Maclean ‏(@HeatherMaclean), along with her kids, just spent the week at Teresa’s house, and she has been tweeting up a storm the past few days.

The following are some of her tweets and Twitter exchanges.

When asked if she would ever ghost write for Melissa, Heather replied:

Um no. I’ve turned down 2 other HWs. My loyalty is to Teresa and I wouldn’t want to work on a book project that was ill-gotten.

When asked, “What will happen when Melissa doesn’t sell enough to meet the $300,000 advance on her marriage advice book – will she have to pay it back?,” Heather replied:

According to people I know in publishing, that number is wayyy off. But no, she won’t have to pay it back. I was really surprised to see Melissa of ALL people is not giving her writer credit. Every other HW is confident enough to. Melissa really expects anyone to think she wrote a book herself? Lol. Although maybe it was the writer’s choice! 😉 It’s a very odd move for someone so adamant that they aren’t a copycat. Trust me, she is and then some. #SWF

When asked if Teresa’s mother-in-law is aware that Melissa wrote a snide remark about her in her Bravo blog, Heather replied:

Unfortunately she is more than aware. Beyond devastating. She told me so many stories about her hospitality to Melissa over the years. Yes, someone in town told her. Terrible. 😦 Teresa’s mother-in-law cannot understand why Melissa would SO disrespect her in her blog. She was on 1 episode briefly weeks ago… To list her full name like that, mocking her in public, someone who gave her such hospitality, a respected elder, is really incomprehensible…and in MY book, reprehensible. Teresa’s MIL was NOT talking about Melissa and Melissa knows it because she was told. So her insult is fake… Which makes it all the more horrible to me because it’s unnecessary.

Melissa did not need to avenge herself because she was never offended. #FAKE And really that’s your idea of vengeance? Publicly humiliating an older woman? It wasn’t enough she was attacked at Melissa’s family christening?

I spent a lot of time with Teresa’s MIL, a lovely woman, who unlike Melissa’s mom (smh) is not on Twitter. She has no way to defend herself. If I were Melissa, I would seriously consider moving now. She might have crossed one too many lines now. 😦 And Teresa’s MIL told me I could tell Twitter her answer to Melissa’s blog question: “What did she think of her son and Teresa in the hot tub?” She said, “Good for them! I love to see that my son and his beautiful wife are still so in love and playful after 14 years of marriage.” 🙂

Heather later tweeted that she was with the Giudices when Melissa’s blog was published:

I was there with the Giudice family when Melissa’s blog disrespecting Joe’s mother came out. With them and saw their confusion and anguish. I was with Teresa when she immediately called and then texted Melissa to ask why she did it, to directly communicate and work it out privately. I was with Teresa for the next four days while Melissa did not respond in any way. Teresa wants family peace more than anything.

She later tweeted:

In the interest of fair and balanced reporting, I can tell you that Melissa finally called Teresa back this morning! Hooray! 5 days>never. Melissa said Teresa’s MIL shouldn’t have come on the show if she didn’t want to be talked about. Teresa wished her luck next time she saw Mrs. G.

Heather added that Juicy’s mother “was edited terribly on the show. She was NOT talking about Melissa, and Melissa knows it! She was told!”

When asked to “please clear up when earlier you said someone told Teresa’s MIL about the slam in the blog, but now you say you were with them when it came out?”, Heather replied:

I was staying at Teresa’s house with my family when it came out. The next day her MIL came over and said she’d heard about it.

When someone commented that Melissa “has respect for nobody – you don’t see Teresa going after the Marcos,” Heather tweeted:

Ever! And certainly not by name! Sooo disrespectful. 😦

On her relationship with Teresa, Heather tweeted:

Teresa knows I tweet my opinion and that I would never do anything to hurt her family. I gave and received lots and lots of hugs and kisses. The tears… What has been done to this family… Unbelievable. Believe me, I don’t want my name attached to RHONJ in any way but I feel I have a moral obligation to tell the truth for this family. xx

When someone tweeted, “I’m more convinced then ever Melissa’s followers are fake,” Heather replied: “Me too! I can’t watch any other HW show, but there was just something so sweet and unique about Teresa,” and she retweeted:

I am perplexed with people who buy followers on social media.What is the point? Perceived popularity? You are fooling no one but yourself!#RHOC

When someone tweeted, “If Teresa tries to get out there and defend herself or her family, people twist everything,” Heather replied:

“Exactly! I can’t stand the twisting.”

On her opinion of RadarOnline, Heather said:

I never look at Radar. They’re never even close to the truth and it’s pretty clear who their sources are.

s5 181 d

On the comments by Kung Fu/Say What?? at LipstickAlley, Heather said:

I read it. Nuggets of truth but mostly fiction. The RHONJ expose on lipstickally making the rounds is mostly fiction. Especially the parts about Joe Gorga. Not true in almost every way. Trust me. You know I don’t like the way Joe Gorga treats his sister, but those are some seriously insane and hurtful allegations. No one deserves that. I know Joe Gorga’s family very well and he was raised right. He’s a good, good guy. Reality TV can make even the best person look terrible. And new-found “fame” can mess with your mind and then your behavior. 😦 No idea who Kung Fu is, but no one is that deeply acquainted with every single cast member. Not possible. I can’t speak to the Manzo or Laurita “tea” in that article, but I know the Giudices and Gorgas. Not true.

Note from Fame: Kung Fu is not an insider, IMO, but is a super fan who carefully follows the blogs and has created a story based on both fact and fiction – just because some of what he/she is saying is true does not mean all of it is true. It can be best described as fan fiction.

Calypso did the research on what Kung Fu was claiming about the Manzos based on various newspaper articles which he/she linked to. Calypso proved that the articles were about different Manzo brothers and a different Brownstone restaurant – as unbelievable as it sounds (what are the odds?!)

The story about passing bribes through cereal boxes was an article about Louis Manzo and Ronald Manzo (other Manzo brothers) and also involved Michael J. Manzo (no relation to Lou or Ron – apparently “Manzo” is a common name in the region). And – wait for it – the Brownstone establishment in the articles was the Brownstone Diner and Pancake Factory in Jersey City, not The Brownstone catering house in Paterson.

Calypso wrote: “I really do prefer the truth over a fabricated and ‘alleged’ tale used to deceive others. Why fill a post full of allegations and innuendo if you KNOW the juicy truth? Albert and Tommy Manzo may have DIRTY HANDS and I suspect they do but …. you have to ask yourself after reading all of this are they involved in this case? The hundreds of pages I’ve read say – no.”

Concerning Heather’s tweets defending Joe Gorga and the LipstickAlley comments, someone tweeted Heather that “this is Teresa sticking up for her brother again – damage control,” to which Heather replied:

Nope, it’s me sticking up for the truth again. I don’t speak for Teresa, but I know the facts.

On the same topic, someone else tweeted, “those allegations really bother me – really destructive,” to which Heather replied:

There’s a big difference between bitchy conversations and legal accusations. Not cool!

Finally, concerning the LipstickAlley comments, Heather said,

I think Kung Fu is most correct with his opinion on how production tricked Melissa this season.

The following is King Fu’s comment on “Melissa coming on and production building trust with her”:

They prove they are on her side, build her up, teach her how to play the game. Then she trusts them enough to relax and say things knowing they will edit them out. They have her pick at Teresa until Teresa snaps, then edit it to make it look like Teresa started the whole fight. Now when producers have her do it again, she is confident and knows it’s safe to mumble under her breath at Teresa, whisper insults, hide out of camera range, and make comments to stir the pot. The season airs and bam… Melissa is happy and satisfied that producers are on her side. Then they flip the script and stop editing those things out. By the time Melissa realizes it, she’s fucked. She’s depending on BRAVO paychecks, already signed a new contract, and getting her ass handed to her on national TV. This happens to nearly all the housewives. Melissa was so confident and giddy over having production “in her pocket” that she failed to realize she was walking the exact same path that many before her had walked.

s5 181 e

When someone said, “Honestly, my heart breaks for Teresa… sometimes for your own sanity, cut your losses,” Heather tweeted:

I know. And sadly I agree. I’m so proud of Teresa for continuing to work on fixing and forgiving. It is not easy, but she will never give up. xx

On Melissa, Heather tweeted:

She seems to have a very convenient amnesia for a lot of things. But as an actual witness to everything, I truly think unless someone gets through to Melissa and holds her accountable for her actions… the family will never heal. Teresa can’t get through to her. Maybe we all can. xx Teresa is definitely trying! 🙂 And if I know her, she’ll never give up!

And this is my personal opinion again, but since I know Melissa Gorga reads my tweets (and prints them out with dates), I have to say… a 7th grader is completely different from a 2nd grader. When a young person reaches out to you, you should respect and validate their feelings. I know Melissa doesn’t have teenagers yet, but I do. They see and feel and hurt and understand and need honesty and you to LISTEN to them. Not yell. And in MY book, hanging up on a child is despicable

[Note from Fame: Apparently, Melissa yelled at Gia over the phone and hung up on her when she called Melissa to express that she was hurt about what she said on the bus to the retreat about her father cheating.]

So now Melissa is crying that I’m a “disgusting liar” that is tearing her family apart. What?!? How can my opinion be a lie? Unlike the egg accounts and Melissa fan clubs (run by whom…?) that are personally attacking me, calling me names and threatening me, I’m not. I’m not talking about Melissa’s past or her family or her marriage. Not name calling or being disrespectful. Just my opinion on her actions.

I don’t care about press or attention or # of followers. I’ve already turned the RHONJ down. Teresa doesn’t ever pay me (the publisher does). I believe our friends and family keep us and our ego and our pride in check so we can be better people. We all have it. Except some “celebs.” There is not one person close to Melissa that ever tells her she’s wrong about anything. I don’t think that’s healthy or good for anyone.

I know Melissa (obsessively?) reads my tweets. I only hope that 1% of my opinion about decent behavior sinks in someday. For her family. They can never heal if Melissa and Joe continue to blame everything on everyone else. Teresa has nothing to do with my opinion or the fans’. She doesn’t pay us, she doesn’t ask us, she doesn’t promise people favors to run fake bashing sites. She can’t control the whole world!

I think Melissa’s new temper tantrum is because she is freaking out about how she’s being portrayed this season and needs someone else to blame.

How in the world could Teresa’s friend twittering (never mind what Mel’s own blood has twittered) be the cause of her family breakup? Insane.

I’m guessing Melissa’s also trying to set the stage so that if anyone from her past comes forward, it will also be Teresa’s fault. It’s not. It’s yours.

s5 181 b

About Melissa’s attack on Joe Giudice at the retreat, Heather tweeted:

Note to Melissa: when you try and “break up” a fight, you should probably try and pull off your husband, not scratch and poke the other guy.

When someone tweeted, “What’s right is right and wrong is wrong… I still can’t get that 4 against 1 at the reunion out my head,” Heather replied:

It’s all very, very sad and my heart is breaking for this family. I know first-hand how hard Teresa is trying. I wish I knew that about Melissa.

When someone tweeted, “Wish it were you instead of the Kim chick that was on the show!”, Heather replied:

Never, never, never. They’ve asked and I declined. Not interested in being on TV again and certainly not on that show! 😉

Heather also retweeted a July 27th tweet from Donna Marco ‏(@donnamarco1), Melissa’s mother:

All families have problems,sometimes the hurt is so deep it’s hard to forgive. Why do people lie just to hurt. God is watching you!!!

Last week Heather tweeted that she wasn’t able to live tweet during episode 8, saying:

I’m sure Melissa will be relieved. Her Crisis PR team has enough to worry about tho 😉 .

    I have just recently started posting, although I have been a Fame &Co. fan for a while .It’s very refreshing to finally see someone (Heather) responding and supporting Teresa (beside most on this site)!

    • Buck Henry
      July 28, 2013 at 9:34 PM

      Heather is full of it and she knows it. This was about protecting Teresa nothing more. She had to come out because Teresa and Joe and stumpy names where all in that lipstick alley comments. I’ll knock a hole in Heather’s thesis right now, she said that Melissa attacked Joe Giudice’s mother over the comment that Joe said was edited that way. But then goes and say that Melissa is attacking Joe Giudice with her nails. Okay, we saw her attacking Joe with her nails, but we also saw Joe’s mother say that women who where what she wears would be called prostitutes in Italy. Was there another woman that they saw in the nail salon that they where talking about or where they talking about what Teresa brought up about Melissa and Joe’s mother added commentary, you can’t have it both ways.

      I bring this up not to defend Melissa but to put out their that she conveniently have everything fall on the positive for Teresa and “negative” for Melissa. Ask yourself why nobody and I mean nobody from Teresa to Jax to Richie all the cast have came out and said no to all of this on twitter (hell Jax is the twitter queen). They are afraid of saying anything because whoever KungFu is they hit it right on the head and have more that they haven’t said or hinted about (ask yourself why did Kungfu make that comment about the Brownstone no longer being safe to do business and that old people are leaving their hearing aids in the place). It’s because the Brownstone more than likely is known for where the “boxes” of cereal are given and so they may have investigations ongoing.

        Buck you’re kind of quick to call out Heather – why is that? So sure that Heather is full of it but Kung Fu’s word is the be all end all of facts? Why?

        I’ll be waiting on that box of cereal proof. I want details! Not really – I have the proof already! Undisputable PROOF. KUNG FU DIDN’T HIT THAT ONE ON THE HEAD BY A LONG SHOT AND THAT PROOF WILL BE PRINTED RIGHT HERE AT FAMEWHORGAS ! Embellished old facts with a hint of innuendo aren’t needed with my story. I don’t like Tea, not this type at least – I prefer pudding – where the proof is! J-E-L-L-O

        Does anyone want the truth?

          • July 28, 2013 at 11:25 PM

            There is something with a ring if truth which leads me to share Heather’s skepticism. I can’ t imagine that there would be someone who came out if the woodwork like that who would know all this crap about everybody in the cast. I mean, everybody?

                I expressed my skepticism before about the most serious allegation mentioned (no need to say it, we know what I am referring too). I just find it hard to believe a record of a violent crime can “poof disappear” in our technology-driven society today.

                Other stuff does ring true, for example the Marco sisters using their sisters status to get kickbacks and JoGo sliming dealings resulting in the Sr. loosing there home.

                Other than that, I do kinda agree that she can’t claim good-editing/bad-editing when its convenient. Regardless, you don’t speak ill of Elders in the old school community, Melissa is morally bankrupt.

                  She has what is called Destructive Narcissistic Personality. She hides her true self from everyone including God, but He is the only One she can not hide from. He knows why she does what she does.

                  That blank look you see in her eyes sometimes is what her family and friends see when they need empathy and she is void of it. She can do or say whatever to protect her true self and have no regard for others no matter how young or old they are.

                  She wears several mask because she has different personality types around her. She would love to be vulnerable and whole hearted like Teresa. Of all the people around her, Teresa has the kind of heart that would accept the true self that she hides. She can not accept the love Teresa gives her because Teresa is giving it to the identity (mask) she is wearing at the time. This makes her on edge, frustrated and angry. She does not want to feel vulnerable. All of her mask are helping her get what she wants.

                  She needs to make Teresa’s true self false so she can have peace about it. She projects her true self on Teresa. She wants Teresa to feel that no one will accept her not even God. She seeks to take away EVERYTHING that brings Teresa support and joy.

                    Good post, Kayswhims! Your knowledge about Destructive Narcissistic Personality Disorder helps me understand a relative of mine who mirrors Tsil to a T! I always summed Tsil up as being the evil jealous type! The nicer you are to someone like her the more her desire to destroy you is! I’m pretty sure that Tre has caught on to Tsil’s personality deficiencies by now. I’ll say that’s why they aren’t in a “good place” right now. People like Tsil are dangerous if they “admire” you!

                      Cee See, It’s me Kimberly. I am glad this helped you. The truth about destructive narcissistic family members and sexual abuse will help many who are suicidal push away all the lies.

                      I hope Teresa has caught on by now. She has so much support from people around her. TSIL has a trail of wounded hearts around her. She can not be happy and at peace with any of the support she has managed to gather because they are supporting what they think she is, not who she really is.

                      TSIL can not take away everything Teresa has. She wanted her false self to be on display. She was not expecting so many people to put her under a microscope. She can not control everything. Fame Whorgas has become her unknown itch she can not scratch. Truth is here that she can not push under a rug.

                    Wow, Kay. I’m floored by your grasp of her PD. I had my life ripped apart by not one but multiple NPDs and I am barely breathing from it…I’m getting better but, it is a very difficult road even with a wonderful support system and, I have Fame and Stoopid’s blogs to help work it out and keep my mind away from the horror show I allowed them to make of my life.

              Gessie, I share your and Heather’s skepticism. That LA “tea” was just reheated in the microwave — repackaged and cobbled together from one blog or another. I have no doubt that *some* of it is true, but I totally agree that KungFu is no insider.

      • Pippi
        July 29, 2013 at 11:35 AM

        Buck, I also found one of those tweets biased in favor of Teresa’s brother. Where did the rumors originate? [Edited out by Fame – sorry Pippi] Heather said she can’t speak for the Manzo or Laurita tea in the article, so obviously she is not the all seeing eye. Kung-fu has made many valid points which are reasonable and eye opening. Everyone is demanding truth and proof yet when someone does “come out of the woodwork” with info they get pooh-poohed. We all know much of what Kung-fu said has been floating around the blogasphere as well as archived here at Fame for a few years. However Kung-fu’s chronicle makes sense and has connected many dots. Therefore I am not going to reject the Lipstick Alley expose`.

        Heather tweets “Nope it’s me speaking up for the truth. I don’t speak for Teresa but I know the facts.”

        Heather has been Teresa’s friend for five years. She knows the facts as they’ve been told to her. Did she grow up in the hood, seriously I’d like to know if Heather grew up in Teresa’s home town? If she did grow up in the hood I’ll give her tweets more merit, especially concerning Joey in his youth. [Edited out by Fame – sorry Pippi] but I’m not going to take everything she says as gospel Kung-fu’s expose` is the most riveting read that I’ve seen in a hell of a long time on any site. Whether true or not it was some tasty tea.

        • kayswhims
          July 29, 2013 at 5:14 PM

          We should not take everything someone says as gospel. I do not completely trust anyone but God, and that goes for my own heart. I pray my heart does not deceive me. We test things and wrestle with them to seek the truth. When I say I want the truth, I do not mean someone is lying to me. Sometimes there are no hard facts to support the truth. A case can be made based on other details that can be pulled together. I also know that I lie is easily embraced if it is twisted with the truth.

        July 29, 2013 at 1:16 PM

        Buck Henry. I agree with you. Kung fu was pretty detailed it wasn’t just bs. Heathers comments sound like fluff damage control. It just makes me go hmmm. Don’t like Melissa at all, actually can’t stand her but why does everyone think teresa is so innocent. To me it shows time and time again it’s tit for tat. They both do things and say things about each other. They both care so much about their image and do damage control whenever anything about them is exposed. Like joe g phone conversation. Hence the damage control this season to make it look like their marriage is all good. I do think this season Melissa is shown for what she is so she is doing massive damage control via blogs.

      • July 29, 2013 at 4:04 PM

        Right – Now that Teresa and JoeGu is indicted for 39 counts of fraud – it makes Kungfu version of events more feasable.

        sad to say probably the only one tre has got~!!! i do find heathers tweets and behind the scenes very interesting alot of insight to this. i just hope heathers tweets dont hurt tre, the twisting of more soldiers for tre’s army if you will…and what is this missy hanging up on gia? what did i miss on that??? if that is true that is uncalled for! whats the story on that?

        • kayswhims
          July 29, 2013 at 4:44 PM

          The army comments are only a ploy to get people who support Teresa to shut up. Soldiers are trained to fight an enemy, that is TSIL’s method not Teresa. Do not let a DNP like TSIL twist it. Teresa is a strong woman. Whatever comes her way, she tackles and overcomes it. Hurt that is deeper, like betrayal, takes longer.

          I don’t know the story behind TSIL hanging up on Gia. I know Gia speaks her mind.

    The KungFu lipstick alley thing could be somewhat fake, but a lot of it matched up with things written in comments or other blogs… For example, way back when on some blog where it was clearly the sisters/Melissa commenting, someone else was like “I slept with that pig Joe Gorga. I had no idea he was married until I saw the show.” which the KungFu source also references.

    I think Heather– along with Teresa– will never admit any of the “scandalous” things written about Juicy or her brother out of protection. But who knows what’s true and isn’t?

    • Jeannie5233
      July 28, 2013 at 7:49 PM

      Exactly, GG. Alot of what has been posted at LipstickAlley has been readily available and out there on other blogs and also lifted from commenters. It is a collaboration of both of these and, possibly other sources such as tabloids and newspaper articles, being spun around and then presented as new and juicy “tea”.

      • Laram
        July 29, 2013 at 8:56 PM

        I agree. And posting inferred 2009 newspaper articles about political infringements is not a source, to me. The articles weren’t indicting the Manzos, etc. New Jersey corruption in govt and politics is not news! :-)!

        • Laram
          July 29, 2013 at 8:58 PM

          Knew news, I should say.

          A lot of commenters even asked if these stories were lifted from Fame. Fame has the facts, and doesn’t saliciously put out here say.

      July 28, 2013 at 7:51 PM

      Thats exactly what i was thinking too. Then WHORSEY FACE has the nerve to say Teresa is a disgusting pig. She is still protecting him. It’s one thing to read gossip on a blog that is negative but imagine if Teresa was the b*tch that WHORSEY claims she is Teresa could blast the sh*t outof both of them.WHorsey is nothing more then a shore whore and her husband doesn’t seem any better since he hooked up with her.

    • July 28, 2013 at 8:04 PM

      Decided to go with my real nickname. Creative, huh?

      Whether it is fake or not, at least the info is getting out there. I DO wish they would credit their sources though. There is very little there that hasn’t been posted by Fame…definitely agree with that.

    I have been a follower of Fame since the beginning. Fame is who I trust. Teresa is a stand up hard working mom. Super fun reading and seeing the truth come to light. Good things are going to happen. Heather is super! My heart breaks for Juicy’s mom she didn’t deserve any of the crap TSL spewed.

        Why is it that Melissa gets to say directly that Juicy cheats and blah blah blah, but Teresa is responsible for all the rumors about Melissa. All you have to do is read twitter to know that the rumors have been swirling for years. Anyway, Melissa tweeted that we would all like her better after this episode. Ah, no Melissa I dislike you more than ever. You are an evil psycho. You are finished.

          YES gessiewtf!!!! I can’t w Melissa—and why is Kathy acting “shocked” that Teresa apologized? That is all the woman has done for 3 seasons since the cookbook!!! And I am not at all feeling Dr. V!!!!!! She is unprofessional(mostly evident on WWHL she was back pedaling like crazy…)I think they are starting to make T believe their B.S. about HER being to blame, on WWHL, she said the problem was that her and her brother “lost communication”
          and “she should have called him” but yet, we see her continually reach out to him, and he spewed all of that hate to her-on film- and SHE is one blame??? Dr. V needs to research the circumstances before she gives her 2 cents!!!!!
          And once again, Melissa doesn’t get called out for the Danielle stuff—ugh!!!

                And I do take offense on her saying “I’m Italian where it matters, right here…” and pointing at her v.j. … since my heritage is Italian… I don’t go around making a point and/or winning an argument by pointing at my genitals… I don’t have a high opinion on psychologists and psychotherapists, but on my behalf if you want to convey a slight sense of professional behaviour/persona… you must NEVER POINT AT YOUR GENITAL AREA!!!

          That was my question during that scene, too, Jeannie! Tre has apologized over & over & over &, frankly, I believe she’s apologized for things she didn’t have to apologize for. It’s past time for the Jr Gorgas to own up to their crap in all of this because they are NOT innocent. In fact, IMO, their hands are dirtier than anyone’s. (BTW, I lurk here most of the time, I’ve only posted a couple of times…under the name of diggitydawn. I’ve gotten a bit tired of that name & hope I am allowed to change it. : ) ) (OH!

          Teresa’s eyes always give her away. She looked so completely forces and her eyes registered her suck it up and apologize expression. Bravo can force , frankenbyte and a script a bang load of kumbaya but as we know nothing has been legitimately repaired . Its the Teresa Show and Trigger just needs to learn to deal with it or shockers get her own show. Or maybe parking lot porn is the proper venue for her .

        Did she not get the memo? I’m not watching yet but, I’m assuming she’s drunk on this episode..Is she drinking Voli?

        • Jeannie5233
          July 28, 2013 at 8:59 PM

          The bottle’s label is blocked out – now from what I understand, Bravo is providing the show as a platform to promote the housewives’ products. If Melissa is still promoting Voli, the label would probably have not been blocked out. Actually, the bottle doesn’t look like a Voli bottle.

            July 28, 2013 at 9:22 PM

            I rewind the DVR to look to see if it was Voli, but alas I was disappointed to find out that it was blurred out. If she was still promoting the drink they would have made sure that the label showed.

          July 29, 2013 at 12:52 AM

          My husband said she was drinking Grey Goose! He got out the bottle we have and I have to agree with him.

          • July 29, 2013 at 1:00 AM

            I think it was Voli. I will have to watch it again but I think the Grey Goose printing would have shown more. And I seem to remember a yellow line around the top of the bottle when she was drinking from the bottle? Voli has that but Grey Goose doesn’t.

            • July 29, 2013 at 7:32 AM

              When they are having dinner, the label is blocked out, but you can see Tre’s “picture” on the bottle. It was Fabellini. They were talking about peach and raspberry. I don’t know why they blocked out the name, but they left her picture without being blurred. I think it’s funny that TSIL was getting drunk on the same Fabellini that she was bashing earlier.

              • July 29, 2013 at 8:53 AM

                I didn’t pay much attention at dinner because I thought they were still drinking what they were when they were cooking. Like I said, I will have to watch it again.

                The wine was, but there was also a vodka, I thought. Sitting right in front of Rosie and Melissa. Didn’t look like Voli or Grey Goose either one to me — closer to Voli than Grey Goose though, I thought.

    Hhhhmmmm…. Bravo better tread lightly now. I think that people will start to come forward and expose TSILFN(fn=for now, until they divorce in a few years) for who and what she is. I hope so too. I’m incredibly tired of all the bashing, arguing, drama, naming and blaming Theresa for everything. Honestly, Bravo, enough is absolutely enough. TSIL is and will go no where in life after the show. Put Theresa in a better light and re-cast the entire show, save for Theresa. I don’t care if Caro was/is/has any connection or affiliation with the mafia. Who cares anymore. besides if anything suspicious happens, we know who was behind it. Wacko the Jacko Clowny and Katfishy really need to get off the show. If it is true Katfishy doesn’t like her sil’s then cast one of them on the show so we can see some real drama.

              i agree LOVE juicy even more now! he had a wisdom and sensitivity under the tough guy essense to him during the talk with tre, how basically they should be the first to extend the olive branch to chris/jac. i do like how he basically hugged TB and missy in this/ again showing he is the bigger person. i do NOT like how basically tb and missy esp. didnt have to own up to their part in this, but hey at least tre/juicy will be better people for it ( trying to fix things).
              i also noticed how missy was getting splattered during the dinner, right down to swigging straight from the bottle and as another poster pointed out, showing her classy nature( since she likes to keep it classy but sexy ya’all LOL)
              what was up with her dissing rosie, ( leaving her hanging when rosie asked for high five) OR saying those sexual innuendos to rosie at the dinner table ( juicy fuzzy peach anyone?) is it just me or in past episodes it seems like missy flirts with rosie, well i cant call it flirt, more like a “im so hot, you want me but cant have me”? and the one episode where that one chick was flirting back with rosie-in the hottub, missy made a snarky comment in her TH about rosie having to wipe the drool off ( jealous much missy?)
              AND why is it that missy had to go tell jackie about the promise tre made to caroline( about doing the trust excercise with jac?) why pray tell was it missys business to just insert herself in that and tell jac unless its a subtle pot stirring??

                Because she has to get to Jax first and “prepare her attitude” before Teresa can make any postive movement. She lost her footing when everyone seemed to be supportive of Teresa again. She had a talk with her husband before he met with Teresa in the Left Out epi It is the same thing. That is why she says Teresa “mindfucks”, she is projecting her true self on Teresa. Just look at how crazy and unraveled everyone was and is towards Teresa after TSIL became part of their lives.

    It sucks that Teresa and Juicy had to apologize to TSIL & TB, but I am glad they did only because now they have bent over backwards and done EVERYTHING they could possibly do, and on camera, to make nice with those two and get the situation moving.

    I am a member of a boy-dominant family, therefore I am infinitely fascinated with Teresa and her pack of little girls. They are kind of like a Barbie Dream House come to life. I really want to just watch them without all the BS. An episode without the Giudice girls is a sad Sunday night. : (

        • July 28, 2013 at 9:35 PM

          I just wonder if there weren’t apologies all around, but only the Giudices’ apologies were aired. That way, with the edit, the viewers can rally around Teresa and Joe as being the bigger, more mature family members, and have even more reason to trash the Gorgas. Puts a little more shine on Teresa’s halo, and a little more flame to the feet of the Gorgas. I think producers are definitely on Teresa’s side this season.

            July 28, 2013 at 10:46 PM

            Hmmm…thing is, I honestly don’t think the Gorga’s apologized. I understand Bravo wanting to give T the ‘good edit’ but I don’t see how showing the Gorga’s apologizing would have hurt this scenario. By the Gorga’s not shown apologizing, just gives the anti-T fans the right to say, ‘see, we knew YOU were 100% the problem, not the Angels of God.’ Maybe some will see T as the ‘bigger’ person, but I think most will reprieve TSIL & TB and say, ‘I’m so sorry we ever doubted you.’

            Maybe I’m just being pessimistic but from reading the Bravo comments since this season started, I don’t think I am.

            • July 29, 2013 at 6:02 AM

              I agree. I am reminded that narsisitic people see apologizing as a sign of weakness and they hate that. People of like mind will support them. People who think they are without sin, lie and the truth is not in them.

              Teresa and Juicy have shown that they are willing to keep reaching out to mend the family. This can not be denied. TSIL and TB do not want Teresa or Juicy to be the hero and take credit for mending anything.

              The tide is turning. All it takes is for someone to sense that something is not quite right. Then they look for confirmation and see things in a new perspective.

          Exactly Jeannie, does Bravo think we are stupid? TB and TBSIL weren’t the least bit remorseful or sorry or humble . Last night I was in shock that Dr. Quack didn’t make the marco’s do anything, if that wasn’t a Bravo set-up give me a break. Dr. Quack did what she was told to do.

      • rfeliciat
        July 28, 2013 at 9:12 PM

        Here’s the problem with them being the only ones apologizing: TSIL, Carol & Jacko fans will still call T & Juicy fake, although these 2 did what these fans’ve been screaming for for them to do for 2-1/2 seasons (although T’s apologized constantly before this ep but no one will acknowledge this since the victim(s) of her evil doings didn’t accept it), and TSIL & TB will still say that the Giudice’s are fake and that they don’t trust them. Same old song. They can’t win for losing and it’s a shame. 😦

        I haven’t watched the ep yet but it sounds like nothing’s been resolved, really. Sorry, but I just don’t trust that the Gorga’s really accepted this apology.

        Lol, I specifically heard MeGo say “vokka” when the men and Rosie returned from fishing, were hanging around the kitchen, and MeGo was passing around the drinks. Hilarious.

      Hi Stefanie – by the way, I think you were posting under a different name before with a picture? Well, now I see it’s you!!! And it’s really nice to “see” you!!! Anyway, he IS gross.

          July 28, 2013 at 9:51 PM

          Yes, she is catching on but I think it may be to late for her. I’m thinking that she realizes that she backed the wrong person and is now regretting it because I’m sure that she was seeing that the that things were turning in Teresa’s favor while filming. The reason I’m saying this is because of the looks that she has been giving Melissa and her saying under her breath that she wasn’t sick.

          Kathy is a day late and a dollar short and I think this her life in a nutshell. Teresa, even as a kid, had “it” and Kathy never ever came close to getting the attention she thought she deserved – Kathy is jealous and any way to get a dig at Teresa makes her feel good.

    Okay, I had to register officially so I can join in here because there are some people in the TWOP thread for RHONJ that must be “angels sent from heaven” for TSIL and Joey. Melissa must be seriously mentally ill or just straight up evil. How can someone be so delusional, so up their own ass to believe their infallible and that anything they do is right and above reproach. She is kind of scary in her manipulations, she is much more disturbing to me than Danielle could ever be. Danielle was unstable, but TSIL is calculating and malicious.

    Also Heather probably really does feel that way about the KungFu comments, but between Fame and what KungFu wrote, it all makes a lot of sense. Especially the parts about the Manzo-Laurita clan, that to me was the juiciest bit, they are so so messy!

          Narcissistic rage has two forms:

          I. Explosive – The narcissist flares up, attacks everyone in his
          immediate vicinity, causes damage to objects or people, and is
          verbally and psychologically abusive.

          II. Pernicious or Passive-Aggressive (P/A) – The narcissist sulks,
          gives the silent treatment, and is plotting how to punish the
          transgressor and put her in her proper place. These narcissists are
          vindictive and often become stalkers. They harass and haunt the
          objects of their frustration. They sabotage and damage the work and
          possessions of people whom they regard to be the sources of their
          mounting wrath.

      Voli kicked her to the curb. To late to fix what is clearly beyond repair. Fergie actually has a successful music career, couple Grammy’s, talent , fame and beauty and money to invest. TSIL has -1.5 mil in the minus column and isn’t smart enough to use her tweets wisely.

        Jax needs to.be in lockdown somewhere. Parenting Magazine must be so proud of their association with her. People who say things like Jax statement about Teresa and her brother are usually seriously mentally ill. It amazes me that Josephine isn’t mad as hell at the Lauritas, that’s slander. And our man Juicey had Jax Cray Cray number and warned everyone long ago.

          Did you see the face her husband made when she said that hopefully he didn’t have sex w/ Teresa. That’s the most disgusting thing anyone can say and in due time Jacqueline will be in a mental home. She is seriously not all there and when alcohol gets in her system she is 10x of bat sh*t crazy.

I don’t feel bad for him one bit – he has been just as duplicitous in all of this and with his own “shady” dealings (remember him accusing Joe of being “shady” – now that takes some balls) he’s just as bad as the rest of them. He made his bed – now he has to lie in it.

        Jaq is just a nasty minded looney! She needs to STFU! I think that would constitute as slandering someone to imply incest! It was a malicious lie that could hurt one’s reputation! I bet ya Tb/Tsil won’t comment about what she said! I mean, can you imagine if Juicy told Tre “ya brotha lost his cherry when he was 9 yo!”. I’m sure Tsil would tweet, give interviews about how disgusting and low the Giudice’s are for saying that. Since it was Chris I’m sure the Gorga’s are fine with him outing Tb as being sexually active when he was 9 yo! It’ll be interesting to see how the Gorga’s/Giudice’s handle Jaq’s disgusting comment! I think Jaq really pushed it this time. I thought the smelling Tb’s g-string was bad but Jaq just keeps getting worse with her insults! She’s deranged!

            July 29, 2013 at 9:54 AM

            It would not surprise me if it was a comment to protect his I am a man ego. If Chris gave him an age he ‘became a man” he had to one up him. Comparing size to other men, more sex than any man around him and losing his virginity before anyone. His narsisistic attitude revolves around what he has and what he accomplishes. His wife is an accomplishment, etc.

        There are so many women who are mothers to more than three children – who are older than TSIL – with toned arms and a svelte figure. That has got to be one of the most moronic statements I’ve seen written about her. What the hell is so hard to believe????

              Princess dammit! We see in your picture you are a beautiful woman! And your 5 pounds? from your goal weight. I would bet a lot of money you look a lot better than TSIL.

              • July 29, 2013 at 12:23 AM

                Aww thanks Elemcee. I’m losing the weight but not exercising like I should…I’m not toned at all and I concentrate way too much on cardio and need to add some strength training. 4.2 pounds now — but that’s from not eating dinner and drinking myself sick last night 😦 I am a complete idiot sometimes. Regardless, I’m going to enjoy saying that while I can because I am sure I will have gained tomorrow morning 😀 I imagine it will take forever to lose the rest of it…we all know how hard the last 5 – 10 lbs is. If I ever get there, I might adjust it again…I think the weight I am right now just might be where I should be. I still hate my tummy but don’t think losing more weight will improve it too much. It looks like a skinny 90 year old woman’s ass. Very attractive. The excess skin and the stretch marks…UGH. I can tuck the skin in. Pregnancy really messed my tummy up BAD. I also have a pretty significant diastisis recti (separated abdominal muscles) from pregnancy so I have to be careful with ab exercises or it will make the pooch worse. LOL, who am I kidding…I hate ab exercises so there’s no “being careful”!

      • Debbie J
        July 28, 2013 at 9:38 PM

        She pretty much was giving her little snarky comments again. Melissa asked if Teresa’s parents were going to be there and Teresa told her she thought that her parents want to make sure everything is going to be good. Then Melissa asked Teresa don’t you want this for the cousins (meaning the children) Teresa said of course then Melissa told Teresa that Teresa needs to be a “good girl”.

          there’s no way this peace holds, without the Tre drama, TSIL has no story line. Her music career didn’t take off (Tre’s fault of course), her book isn’t going to be the new ‘Men are from Mars’ (also Tre’s fault somehow), her workout video (what workout video?)

          • July 28, 2013 at 10:48 PM

            Did anyone else see that Teresa made (not store bought) sprinkle cookies for her BIL’s b-day today? I about laughed my butt off. I think she posted the recipe too on her site.

        Nope and Dr. Wonder Vagina could not have fixed that family in 1.5 days — no way!!! It hated tonights episode as I felt it was fake. Loved Juicy and actually Rosie. But that’s about it.

          July 28, 2013 at 10:12 PM

          I completely agree with your assessment Jules – Watching Joe, and I have to admit, Rosie, was the only redeeming excuse to watch tonight. Melissa getting drunk, and “bringing the fun” was ridiculous and the whole admissions of doing something wrong from Joe and Teresa but crickets from the Whorgas was even more so.

          • July 28, 2013 at 10:34 PM

            And Miss Andy tweeted that the viewers get what they want tonight … WTF? Who aside from big eyes, apologized to Tre? Who? Same ole Teresa is the devil BS. It was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fake. And now Caroline is going to be the one to fix Jac and Teresa (oh and TSIL?????) — PUHLEEZE. And Jac is just disgusting and gross, gross, gross — who say that kind of stuff — I hope it wasn’t Tre he lost his virginity too.

            Had a lovely weekend up in Happy Jack! It was so nice and cool and a great diversion from reality (no connectivity whatsoever — :)). We got the trailer pulled out and set up and “Here comes the rain” and it rained and rained — it was lovely. Yesterday, it was ominous and we saw the lighting but we didn’t get rained on — yay as my daughter got her campfire. Yes at 21 she still wants a campfire and smores and she got that last night with her daddy. I have to admit, sorry if I’m rambling as hubby ran out of diet caffiene free soda for me and started feeding me on beer at 9am — just a bit buzzed.

            Hope ya’ll had as good of a weekend as I did!

            • July 28, 2013 at 10:42 PM

              Oh I almost forget the highlight of the weekend for me was that my hubby ran the generator to charge my kindle fire. He’s a cheap butt and never runs the generator unless I throw a biotch fit. Well my daughter forgot her books, so I had the book she wanted on the Kindle and let her read — Duck Dynasty and I read 1 book and got 1/2 way through another. The book that I did read, JK’s new one under the pseudonym sucked IMHO. I’m really liking James Patterson’s Second Honeymoon.

              PS — the only other time I’ve gotten hubby to run the generator is in the summer when it’s hot and he wants a little nookie.

              I agree with you. Narcissist spend a great deal of time pretending. With things being out of her control, she had to go along with what was happening. Anything she did or said out of underlying anger would be excused because she “was drunk”

        You said it from day one. In the world I live in people, who really get along, get together and do things together, especially during the Summer. Where are the happy family/friends cookouts, the women having lunch together, the sleepovers for the little girls?

      I know what you mean, Dubbalicious! I think Dr. V should have called in the Wakiles/Rosie to make up with the Giudice’s because Teresa’s cousin’s husband (Richie) seems to be trying so hard to start trouble! Notice how Richie called Tb “Joey Whorga” at the dinner table? Then Tsil yelled out, “I’m a whore!” when her drunk butt was being lugged up stairs like a sack of potatoes by her crying baby husband? It only makes them, the Wakile’s/Gorga’s, look like jacka–es! Anyway, it was sure easy for the Gorga’s to join in on Richie’s passive/aggressive comments toward the Giudice’s! I do feel bad for the Giudice’s because they seemed not to know what they were talking about yet I think it’s funny they think Tre is Fame!

    I’m watching the second showing of RHONJ and their therapy with Dr. V is annoying. Where is the apology to Teresa?? Ummm, hello? TSIL and TB aren’t innocent of hurting Teresa. I thought it was ridiculous when Teresa said that we all have done things to hurt each other and TB shuts it down by turning it back on Tre. Why didn’t dr. V call him out on that. I don’t have a degree in psychology, so maybe there is a reason for overlooking… I’m going to go bother some of my psych friends about it.

    • July 28, 2013 at 10:44 PM

      I watched it again too and I think it has to be editing. There is not way on God’s green earth that it was all Tre. Those scenes were short and splotchy and we are seeing what Bravo wants us to vs. reality. But for Miss Andy to think that’s what the fan’s wanted to see WOW.

      • Jeannie5233
        July 28, 2013 at 10:50 PM

        Maybe I am much more cynical than you two but I don’t think the Whorgas did apologize and Dr. V. was pulling out of Teresa and Joe what she was told to by the producers being the “good employee” that she is for Bravo. I don’t think the Whorgas would apologize anyway because they don’t think they have done anything wrong – ever.

        • AnnieMarie
          July 28, 2013 at 11:19 PM

          I do tend to see things half full, at least that is what I’m told. If they apologized, I would have liked to see it instead of Bravo’s twisted sense of reality like MzJules said. However, I totally get your cynism. TSIL and TB are not the apologizing kind of people. I think Tre is the one that got the humble bone in that family.

        • July 28, 2013 at 11:29 PM

      Funny thing is I don’t think TSIL know how to cook or wants to “melt her eyelashes”; she doesn’t know what a “real” lady is. About the only thing she has right is the last third of that statement.

          what was up with her dissing rosie, ( leaving her hanging when rosie asked for high five) OR saying those sexual innuendos to rosie at the dinner table ( juicy fuzzy peach anyone?) is it just me or in past episodes it seems like missy flirts with rosie, well i cant call it flirt, more like a “im so hot, you want me but cant have me”? and the one episode where that one chick was flirting back with rosie-in the hottub, missy made a snarky comment in her TH about rosie having to wipe the drool off ( jealous much missy?)

            Rosie was the one that encouraged the family to go to the retreat. TSIL lost her control because of Rosie. Her ego was hurt when Rosie was attracted to Dr. V. Rosie is now a conquest

            Some narcissistic females can be heterosexual one minute or lesbian the next. She flip flops with ease. Whatever role she has to play to snag her target, she will play it to perfection.

    Because it’s Sunday and also because I read Heather’s tweets, I think that the postings of KungFu should be set to the side. While some of the stuff is believable, some of it, if untrue, is just downright shameful.

    BTW, there is one thing I believe, and that’s Al Manzo dropping the nickle on Juicy. I know that there is another blogger that has some connections to the police force in NJ and fully believes that this is absolutely false because officers would never do that. I don’t know how it is in NJ but here in Louisiana, the cops can and will bust you for anything they want to, when they want to and on the instruction of anyone with any political connections.

    • beebster

      First time posting, but I am from NJ, and yes, the cops here are corrupt as anything, esp in Northern NJ. Honestly, the tea thrown at Al about the police is 100% believable. Politicians, public servants, yo’d be shocked how connected people are within their local bureaucracies. Bribes here ain’t nothing new.

          July 28, 2013 at 11:09 PM

          Yeah, I am pretty familiar with the Hoboken/Jersey City area. Two of THE most corrupt cities within NJ. “Cleaning” always just means damage control and trying to cover up tracks. So when this tea spilt about Al Manzo that was one thing I knew that could be believable, at least to some degree. NJ is way too small and any shady business or wrongdoing is always at risk to blow up eventually.

          • July 28, 2013 at 11:26 PM

            i have family in the police force and yes they do target people. i’ve had a speeding ticket fixed. when one of my sister’s date a new guy they run his name, that’s illegal. i don’t know about bribes but they are not high up on the food chain. but i’m sure it goes on. maybe not with them. but money talks, always has always will……….

        Depends on the town. the more north you go in Bergen County the less corruption you find in both the municipal governments and the cops. Below Route 4 and East of 17 and you start finding corruption. Best I ever heard was an election in Fairview when about 5000 people more than actually lived in the town voted. Seems the local cemetary was very active at voting time.

      I apologized to my husband, cuz’ I made him watch WWHL, but we had to becuse T was on. He said we also must watch WWHL when a large truck backs over Andy, and he told me to make sure Andy knows he said that… So I am posting it here… Seems the fastest way…

    All I have to say is Jacko needs to take responsibility. She knows she hurt Teresa but still won’t own up to her role in strippergate. She talks like a guilty person. And as much as I don’t like her husband for being a fake fraud like her, you can tell he misses the friendship with Joe Guidice, but his mentally unstable wife keeps writing checks with her mouth that her butt can’t cash.

          The canned tomatoes are OK to do when no fresh tomatoes are available. The problem is not the cans but the type of cans. Redpack is absolute bottom of the barrel. Any good italian uses San Marzano cans La Valle, Cento, Sclafani, etc. DOP certificatied.

    They are discussing the blogs – Teresa’s being positive; TSIL being negative. Dr. V. says they should have face to face time and lay off the blogs and twitter. Kinda tough being they have to write blogs.

    Teresa called TSIL after the first blogs were written. If we all remember Teresa’ was very positive and Melissa ripped Teresa apart. Teresa says she called TSIL and TSIL said “I’m watching the show. Get over it.”

    TSIL has absolutely no intention of letting this family heal. It is not in her best interests.

    • nsr1076
      July 28, 2013 at 11:31 PM

      Yeah but before that Dr V said something about how even her dad gets into Facebook arguments because of comments. I’m sorry but I don’t trust that Dr V. Not after she tried to give credit to Caroline.

    • July 28, 2013 at 11:39 PM

      Dr. Vagina — is a flipping joke! Her new face is almost as plastic and Jac’s and gotta love her weave. She’s taking credit for doing something in 1.5 (maybe if that) days and giving Caroline credit for helping too. OMG — I truly thinks bravo wants to run off intelligent viewers and get those with zero intellect that fall for this shit.

      As a viewer the only thing real I got was Teresa’s pain and Juicy doing what he can for his wife. Rosie, appears to want to truly reconcile as well. The rest was a pile of crap.

      • July 29, 2013 at 1:25 AM

        • July 29, 2013 at 1:46 AM

          Dr. Vagina is better than the C word … so I’m sticking with that. Her real name (maybe) is Venus. I can’t stand that woman, can you tell?

          I saw Moma on here yesterday when I was catching up today.

        • July 29, 2013 at 6:49 AM

          Thanks for your concern Celi. I did a lot of cooking this weekend and entertained family. I popped in and out whenever I had a minute or two. I was hoping to be able to catch up last night, but more company came by. As I have said before, 7 p.m. on a Sunday night is the worse time to air this show for me. There are so many comments and they are all great, I am trying to catch up before I start my day.

          Oh Celi – you are hilarious and so cute. I just want to hug you!!!. Dr. V’s name is Venus and she goes by Dr. V but people have named her that because she referred to her vagina as proof she was Italian and not a real blonde to Teresa when she first came to the castle.

        • July 29, 2013 at 9:15 AM

    Already disappointed in Dr. V. “Oh, here we go…details…details….” I’m like, shut the f up. T’s been sittin there beside you being quiet enough. Let her answer the question. Dr. V was also very vague with her answers regarding TSIL – ‘what attitude?’

    And Andy, trying to implicate that T said more about her opinion about TSIL’s singing. All she said was that she lip syncs. That’s all I ever heard her say. And T’s like, ‘that’s I said’. And I laughed because the way Andy was responding, just nodding, she was almost like, ‘Did I not say that?’

    Not impressed with this interview.

    Jinkies! I just watched that shrill Miss Cohen on his little ego trip show. Is it me or was that such an awkward show? It felt so contrived and it was like you could cut the air with a knife. That Dr. V is such a pretensious wart. Is she the Bravo damage control to try to get this out of control wreck back on “track”? She is sooooo amazing that those few common sense questions got through and fixed everything? I really go the feeling that Tre was very uncomfortable and was just being a “good employee” and going through the paces. The whole show just felt wierd…

Amazing! and I mean amazing that this blog its getting a lot of attention! Love it! Anyway I thought Tre brother and SIL were also going to apologize??!! What the heck Bravo.. are you assuming we the viewers agree that Tre was the only one that needed to apologize??!! If Tre brother and SIL apologized then why not air that too?

By her definition of fun was that the scene of her showing her true self of what a drunk dije is?? LOL I just find it funny how she claims to be a housewife but does not like cooking!

    The Facts – They Are What They Are
    Facts with Suggestion & Innuendo – They Are What You Want Them To Be
    I DO NOT claim to have first-hand OR inside information
    My only claim is that I’ve done a bit of research on the web. I choose to provide links to the information I found.

    The FBI Sting of NJ – 44 Arrested including Mayors, Rabbis and Politicians
    Involved are the Manzo Bros. and the Brownstone – Both TRUE as suggested by Kung Fuey

    EXCEPT

    IT WAS

    LOUIS MANZO and RONALD MANZO – AKA MANZO BROS.
    Also involved MICHAEL J. MANZO – no relation to Lou or Ron

    And – wait for it

    THE BROWNSTONE DINER AND PANCAKE FACTORY IN JERSEY CITY

    Not exactly what you were expecting – ME EITHER!

    Proof from http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/24/nyregion/24jersey.html?pagewanted=all
    which covers who the informant was (Mr. Dwek) who posed as a real estate investor, the DINER(S) (1st sentence 3rd Paragraph) & the passing of money from informant Dwek to the accused and then sometimes back to Dwek as laundered money once in an APPLE JACKS box. Dwek facing fraud charges became an FBI informant to save his own ass.

    Proof of meeting places Mr. Dwek (the informant) used while working with the FBI http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2009/10/an_fbi_informants_whirlwind_co.html
    which states: He ate with them at crowded diners, busy pancake houses, fancy restaurants and hotels. He covered hundreds of miles, shuttling from one secret meeting to another, as the FBI taped every word.

    The same article under NO PROBLEM WITH THAT is:

    The next day, Tuesday, March 24, the FBI set up multiple meetings, the complaints show. Dwek began the day at the Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory, near Jersey City Medical Center. The diner was a longtime favorite of Shaw’s. The political consultant arrived with Edward Cheatam, then vice president of the Jersey City Board of Education, and Leona Beldini, the city’s deputy mayor.
    And:
    On Friday, March 27, Dwek was BACK at the Brownstone Diner to get together with Joseph Cardwell, a Hudson County political consultant and Jersey City utilities authority commissioner who is charged with accepting cash bribes to help Dwek connect with numerous government officials.

    Again, the same article under a WHIRLWIND DAY IN MAY covers MICHAEL J. MANZO:
    After the meeting, Dwek hurried back to New Jersey, back to the Coach House Diner in North Bergen, where he caught up Michael J. Manzo, an independent candidate in the Jersey City election, still selling the Garfield Avenue project.

    PROOF THE MANZO BROS LOUIS & RONALD AND FBI INFORMANT DWEK CONNECTION
    http://www.northjersey.com/news/Former_assemblyman_Manzo_pleads_not_guilty_in_corruption_case.html
    WHICH COVERS HOW LOUIS & RONALD & DWEK FBI STING CONNECTION AND HOW RONALD REPLACED DWEK AS INFORMANT

    Bio for Louis Manzo http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/lou-manzo/
    http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/2010/07/23/one-year-later-whats-happened-to-everyone-arrested-for-corruption/
    States: Michael Manzo The former arson investigator with the Jersey City Fire Department, who was running for the City Council’s Ward B seat in the spring of 2009, pleaded guilty last December to accepting $5,000 in bribes. His sentencing date is pending.

    Lou and Ron Manzo – In the spring of 2009, former Assemblyman and perennial mayoral candidate Lou Manzo was taking another run at the city’s top office. He was arrested in the July sweep and corruption charges were brought against him and his brother Ron; together they were charged with accepting $27,500 in bribes. But in May, a federal judge ruled that the Manzos couldn’t be charged under the Hobbs Act — the federal law that governs many public corruption cases — because the law only applies to public officials. Both Manzos was considered a private citizen at the time. The government is currently appealing the judge’s ruling. Meanwhile, Ron Manzo is also set to stand trial as a codefendant in the government’s case against former Secaucus mayor Dennis Elwell. That trial has a scheduled start date of February 1, 2011

    I really do prefer the truth over a fabricated and “alleged” tale used to deceive others. Why fill a post full of allegations and innuendo if you KNOW the juicy truth?

    Albert and Tommy Manzo may have DIRTY HANDS and I suspect they do but …. you have to ask yourself after reading all of this are they involved in this case? The hundreds of pages I’ve read say – no.

      Calypso – Thank you very much for your hard work and research – baring the TRUTH behind the “connection” between the Manzo brothers and the Brownstone, complete with sources and references. Just like I said, Kung Fuey’s insider information was lifted from newspaper articles at the time and NOT further investigated. You took it a step further, substantiated, and validated the information. Once again, BRAVO and a STANDING OVATION.

      Your wonderful contribution here clarifies what I have been trying to say over the past few days here on FW. KungFuey’s “tea” is very thin, weak with absolutely NO flavor. I much prefer your “pudding” – thick, rich, the flavor full-bodied and wonderful texture.

    i’ve only watched half of the show and it amazes me that this is what they call a make up. put all the blame on Teresa, you can tell she is just saying and doing whatever her little cry baby brother wants. i hope he realizes that the hurt she feels is real. when this show is long gone she will feel all of what he’s done. tsil does not matter but your brother does, and his choices will forever be felt for generations (Gia). friends was a hit show how many years was it on ??? how many years does little cry baby really think this is going to last ? dr. v wow what a mess you have made…… how do you think you came across??????? most of bravo viewers watch this show from season 1, and you come up with this shit??????? can you say career mistake????? how long do you think your little show will last ????? and then what ???? your brand of make bravo happy counseling is going to come back and bite you. i suggest you get on social media and try to do some damage control of your own. kathy stfu and take your puke with you. sorry about the rant.

      just finished the last half, i hate jackaloon what a hot mess, what is her story line ???????? i hat Teresa because i’m a crappy friend and she called me out on it. this broad is so gross, so i guess her new story line is what f-ed up thing will come out of her mouth next or tears over a beautiful little boy, who may have some problems but seems to me to be a lovely child. and this whole it’s so time consuming hello raising kids is time consuming no matter what. it’s not like i can set my daughter off to the side and get my nails done. i don’t have 6 hours of school to be by my self. i’m with my daughter 24/7 i’m teaching her how to behave and how to treat people along with writing and math. oh and i have c.p. in my family and i helped raise him i did the pt every night. i went to the school meetings with my grandma (she was raising him) so i know what it takes to raise a child with special needs and to raise a child. they all take all of your time. give me a break. you are gross and a bitch. do you really have any friends really ?????? sorry again i try to wait a day before i blog, but i was so hopeful i should have know better.

        Heather posted a picture of her daughter and Gia last week in Soho. Last night she posted another picture of the girls at the clubhouse wearing the same outfits.. Also no poll last night. People couldn’t call in because no one was there.

        Heather was tweeting about it. She went with Tre. She even took a pic while sitting in the :audience” which is not allowed. But I guess it could have still been taped.

        • July 29, 2013 at 8:50 AM

          It seemed to me that maybe Heather was a little bit behind on her Tweets but I can’t be sure because I had DVRd it and was started watching it late. It could be that it is on delay? I know if I was one of those callers, I’d have a bogus comment lined up to pass the test then would get on there and bust someone’s balls. Maybe a delay to prevent something like that from happening?

      • July 29, 2013 at 8:48 AM

        I know someone who got through as a caller. They ask you what your comment is and, if it passes, put you on hold until it is your turn. I know someone else that passed but they ran out of time before they got to her.

    Watching WWHL and liking the way Teresa is not giving in to Andy on some things. Looked like he was trying to get her to say that Caroline was instrumental in the big make-up and Teresa stuck to her guns about Caroline not being involved. Andy also wanted her to say she disparaged TSIL’s singing career and she told him he instigated it and she only answered about him regarding the lip-synching. Didn’t look like Andy was happy.

    Dr. V…attractive, but I think she would look a whole lot better if her face moved. Too frozen!

    The only person who gave any type of apology to Teresa was Kathy when she again said she was sorry about the comment about Teresa’s father. That was something at least. Still crickets from TB and TSIL. Not expecting much better from Jacqueline next week.

      Dr. V is phoney! How she talks is just fake. Can’t stand her voice. The caller that called and said was it called for to call Melissa a bitch?! Um, are you kidding me? Melissa has called Teresa a bitch on many occasions. Get real.

    Did anyone else feel outraged when Richy groped Rosie?! How is that not assault?

    Just as Andy Cohen harped on Juicy for his homophobic remarks, he NEEDs to press on Ricky for his blatant misogyny. This is NOT okay. It is not okay to excuse this as Richy “being sarcastic”. I am really, really, REALLY upset by this.

    Who shares my thoughts?

      Teresa’s comment way back when about Richie being inappropriate, his saying he thinks about Melissa, all the bosom talk and then tonight’s groping…….he is a pervert and Kathy just looks the other way.

      He grossed me completely out grabbing Rosie’s boobs, and he just kept on holding & squeezing them! That went on for such an awkwardly long time, and it was inappropriate and creepy enough to begin with. Bleh!

        July 29, 2013 at 8:20 AM

        If my husband grabbed my sister’s boobs, kept holding onto them & squeezing them, I’d have a HUGE problem with this, with HIM!, regardless if my sister was gay or not! He’d be in deep trouble that would take him a very long time to get out of, if ever! Monique, you read my mind! I was thinking that the day is gonna come when Richie grabs (or whatever) the wrong lady & she either beats crap outta him or files charges. He’s a pervert of the 1st degree! He thinks he’s funny, but I don’t find his ‘jokes’ amusing in the least little bit. I wish Andy would address this on the reunion, although I won’t be holding my breath. The thing is, he’s a HUGE liability to Bravo because of his twisted, perverted actions towards women. And for Kathy to put up with it makes me question her. What wife puts up with that kind of crap from her husband & doesn’t do something about it? Her self esteem must be nil, in the toilet, if she thought that Richard Wakile was the best she could do. Or does she like that kind of man? He’s an embarrassment to not only his wife, but to his children & all men. Get him off the show & get his butt into therapy…although, at this stage, I doubt therapy would do him any good. He thinks he’s so cute with all this crap, I doubt shock treatments would even help! He has a daughter! Does he want her to be treated like he treats women?! What would he do if Victoria were to come home one day & tell her mom & dad that something like this – or even worse – had happened to her, his princess? Would he tell her the guy was just joking, shake it off, get over it – or would he be a REAL man & father & DO something about it? He also has a mom, does he want HER treated like that? Doesn’t he have sisters? What about them? Does he want the same for them? He wants so badly to be seen as the ‘cool’ dad. Well, Richie, that ain’t gonna get you anywhere. Your kids are still embarrassed by you, I guarantee it! Go away, just go away!

      Everything about Rich Wakile is beyond the spectrum of what is not appropriate behavior towards women. Whether a woman is a lesbian or not, her body is to be respected. Period.

      This is one of the many reasons why I cannot respect Kathy for making excuses for him.

      • July 29, 2013 at 3:04 AM

        the problem is she didn’t seem mad, she was laughing and smiling. i would of slugged him. when the person being felt up laughs about it, it makes it seem like a joke. i’m not saying it was right, it was gross. she is a female and those are her lady parts, if he would of done that to her lover i bet she would of slugged him. she should love herself enough to say back off. and not let him touch her. it was a sad scene of a gay women trying to be one of the guys, this is my thoughts. and i hope i’m wrong.

    I don’t get why folks are up in arms about Whackos comment about hoping it wasn’t Tre that Joey lost his virginity with. Who that is rationale says something like that whether at dinner with there hubby or not? No one I know. That to me was the most disgusting comment of RHONJ. And not to mention your son masterbating — ewwwwwww. And yet Tre gets nailed for bra shopping with Gia and talking about when her time of the month comes — please. Whacko needs to go away. Any “fake” relationship with Tre will be just that fake as there is no way anyone in their right mind would forgive let alone forget that comment.

      I am pushing 60 and I had never heard of “bleaching” an azzhole, then comes the “boner”. Who discusses their young son’s manhood on international television? Then she implies incest between a brother and sister. I do not like calling people names, but to me she is a cheap Slut.

      That was my thought as well. VERY strange to me that her mind would even go there. And that’s the 2nd time, THAT WE KNOW OF.

      Also, anyone else think that on WWHL when they showed the clip of Teresa and my boyfriend talking at the end, when she teared up (on WWHL) — she said she teared up because she knows how sweet Juicy is. I think she teared up because of Loony Tunes.

    July 29, 2013 at 7:26 AM

    I agree. While I love to see a good advocate for Teresa, Heather doesn’t and will never know certain family secrets. She needs to dial it down on twitter as I am afraid she is going to hurt Teresa more than help her.
    For her to so publically defend her client is really kinda weird on twitter and maybe one mag article – but it seems as if this last week, she is getting a bit caught up in the fame. She needs to stop…..she is already getting some heat – and she is subtle but attacking Melissa. The one thing Teresa really never did. I just think she is wrong-not lying-but the Gorga family will never reveal family secrets, that is just how they roll. Heather is s little ignorant or just too innocent to understand this. She needs to just stop before she accidentally hurts Teresa and family.

    • Jeannie5233
      July 29, 2013 at 7:35 AM

      Pinky – I agree with you. Heather does need to dial it down a bit, because in the long run, people will say that while Teresa never tweets anything bad, she has her “henchman” do her dirty work for her.

      • July 29, 2013 at 9:19 AM

    When Melissa said “I’m a whore” while being carried up the stairs by pebble nuts no truer words have ever been spoken. Gotta give her credit for finally admitting something. She always walks like she just got off from riding a horse or the horse rode her. She has to be the most ghetto housewife out there. And who the hell drinks vodka straight from the bottle? Talk about no class. She ain’t nothing but a hoodrat. Plain and simple. I can see if she was single with no kids and got plastered the way she did on national tv but her kids are gonna see her the way she acted one day and feel humiliated. She doesnt know to act like a lady. Gutter trash is what she is. And who talks like that about the way she did to Rosie about a fuzzy peach. She is definately bi but she’s the type of girl that will be with a girl slightly less attractive than her because she is so insecure. Not that she is attractive with that flat face of hers. Looks like she got hit with a frying pan. I bet she needs tons of botox for that huge forhead because she’s always frowning. It was so annoying watching her try to be cute when she was drunk saying “look at my musculls” when she was catching Juicy. Lazy biotch can’t even cook how pathetic is that. She looks like she has a lot of miles on her.

    Chris’ Sock Story

    Jacqueline talks date night and Chris’ very personal coming of age story.
    Posted by Jacqueline Laurita on 12 min ago0

    Before I write anything, I want to apologize to Joe Gorga and Teresa for my comment about them that was in bad taste. I’m talking about the comment when I told Chris that I hoped it wasn’t Teresa that Joe Gorga lost his virginity to when he was 9 years old. That was my sarcastic sense of humor coming out. It came from me thinking back to the awkward flirty comments Joe and Teresa made to each other last year waiting for their therapy session together. “You smell good.” and “Red is a sexy color.” It was kind of an inside joke between us all that Teresa and Joe were in love with each other and maybe that is where all the jealousy was coming from. That comment really wasn’t meant for public viewing, because it’s something my husband and I would joke around about in private. We have even teased Joe Gorga about it before to his face and he laughs with us. Do I REALLY feel they slept together? Of COURSE NOT! Don’t be silly. Moving on…

    I LOVE date nights with my husband. It’s our down time that is just for us to share together! It’s when we can unwind and enjoy each other’s company without disruptions from kids or household chores. We catch up on things we may have missed about each other’s lives during our hectic week, we plan our future goals, vent to each other, offer each other advice, reminisce, and flirt. Food is something we really enjoy together.

    I’ve known my husband since 1996. He was always my best friend and still is. We had one year off from each other while trying to date other people since we were long distance. When Chris came back around and proposed to me, I had no doubts he was the one. We are soul mates. We were engaged for a year and a half before we got married and we are still going strong! It’s kind of funny that I never heard that sock story before though. LOL! I’m glad he shared that with everyone. Please note neither one of us were talking about our son. Chris was telling a story from his OWN childhood so “don’t get it twisted.”

    It was bothering me that Chris kept bringing up Teresa on our date, but I get why. We ARE in each other’s lives. I guess Teresa and Joe kept bringing me up too. LOL! I know that a lot of people were telling me that Teresa seems obsessed with me because she keeps talking about me on the show, but you have to understand that there is a long history between us and we were both hurt by each other. We both talked about each other. It’s what women do. We vent.

    I remember feeling at that time that I hoped their family could all make amends and be happy with each other. I was also looking forward to not hearing about their issues anymore. I just really didn’t want them to try to drag me into their love fest by attempting to get me to make up with Teresa too. At the time, I couldn’t imagine Teresa being a part of my life again. I couldn’t trust her sincerity at all after hearing her say she hated me hours after she hugged me and told me she loved me. I felt like she always said she forgave people, but then she would regurgitate the same story all over again and throw it back into your face while she secretly hated on you. I didn’t feel good. I just wasn’t trusting Teresa at this time, and I still felt very hurt by her. When you go through a “break up” with a friend or boyfriend, you go through stages of hurt and anger. I was still feeling both, but I was doing my best not to even think about her at all. It was kind of hard when people kept bringing her up. It was making our situation really hard to avoid.

    Keep watching!

    P.S. Caroline gets my deepest respect for keeping her word and driving hours away from her own family to help heal theirs. You can always count on Caroline. When you need her, she’s there.

      “That’s what women do. We vent.”

      Honey, what you have said about Teresa and done to Teresa is a helluva lot more than just “venting”. You are kidding, right? Yeah, I know you always make a joke out of everything to excuse what you have done “I was just being silly. . . .LOL” is usually your go-to when you need to explain youself, but this goes way beyond “venting”.

      You may believe in your own fantasy world that Teresa said she hated you (and TSIL backed up your story) because you have repeated it so many times in your twisted mind, you really do believe it now. We viewers don’t. For one thing, I have never heard the word “hate” come out of Teresa’s mouth – about anything or anyone, with the exception of how she hated all of this nonsense between her brother and herself.

      Teresa hasn’t done to you anywhere near what you have done to her. It’s not “venting” – it is obsession, cruelty, and malicious. DON’T GET IT TWISTED.

Making jokes about incest is wrong and making that remark was wrong. I’m sorry but I don’t believe her, I think that the only thing that she is sorry for is being caught saying what she said about TB & Teresa.

    Teresa and Jacqueline’s Unfinished Business
    Caroline Manzo

    Caroline explains why she challenged Teresa to talk with Jacqueline.
    Posted by Caroline Manzo on 10 hours ago3

    Hey guys, how’s everyone doing? It’s all good in New Jersey, thank goodness for Dr. V!



    I really enjoyed this week’s episode, we finally saw some progress and real communication between the Gorga and Guidice clan. I liked Dr. V’s direct approach attitude; she took no nonsense and called you out when you needed it. In other words, she understood them, she knew the mentality of everyone in the room, and she spoke their language. She worked miracles!

    I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived, and quite frankly if my driver hadn’t already left, I probably would have jumped back in the car and headed straight for Jersey! I felt that everyone was on the right track and in a better frame of mind at this point, and I didn’t want to complicate things by being there. Unfortunately I had no choice, so I took a back seat and tried to be as invisible as possible for the duration of the trip. One example of that was when the ladies took over the kitchen to prepare dinner. I thought that having a little alone time cooking together would be another chance for them to talk and bond, so I stayed behind on purpose.

    

I hadn’t realized that Kathy didn’t have a chance to speak with Dr. V until I watched the episode. I felt bad about that, because I know she would have liked the opportunity to be heard. I’m glad she took the time to address Teresa at the table, and I’m happy that Teresa responded in a positive way. Good for them.



    Joe Giudice mentioned that he had a bottle of wine with him that he and my brother Chris made together and was hoping to share it with him at the castle. I thought that was a nice gesture on his part, and I explained to him that Chris and Jac weren’t there because they were concentrating on Nicholas and his needs. They were in the process of interviewing therapists and looking at schools for him. I appreciated that Joe admitted that he didn’t understand what Autism was, and to his credit he apologized for anything out of line that he might have said.

    The trust fall exercise was unexpected and needless to say I was shocked when Teresa asked me to be her partner! One surprise deserves another, right? I meant what I said to Teresa about leaving my family behind in the healing process. Teresa called me for help, and I was there for her. I know that Teresa and Jac had unfinished business and hurt feelings that needed to be addressed. What better way to get this done than through the ultimate challenge! I knew Teresa wouldn’t say no, now my only problem is telling jac what I did! Who knows how this will end up, keep watching folks.



    See you all next week!

      Caroline had no right to give Teresa that “ultimate challenge.” Can you imagine if Teresa had turned the tables on her and said the same thing to Caroline, regarding Dina?

      This was about Teresa’s family healing. Jacs made it very clear she wanted no part of Teresa. One of the few things out of her mouth that I would agree with. While their friendship ended and obviously Teresa was deeply hurt, sometimes it is just better to leave things as they are. But instead, in order to make Caroline the hero and Jacqueline relevant, she was instructed as per storyline dictated by the producers, to throw down the gauntlet.

      Clean up your own house, Caroline, before you feel the need to clean anyone else’s.

      • Stefanie
        July 29, 2013 at 10:42 AM

        I so agree Jeannie. When she threw down that challenge & watching Teresa you could see the hurt and you could also see she wasn’t ready. Sometimes it’s best to leave things alone & let it go. If in the future, Jacqueline & Teresa wanted to talk and put things behind them that it would have been when they were ready not when Caroline says it’s time. I still believe that these two are not in a good place it was all forced for the cameras and supposedly giving the viewers what they wanted.

  63. July 29, 2013 at 9:25 AM

    I think it’s good, brave but good, that Heather is coming out. Finally after 11 on 1, Teresa has someone willing to stand up for her and without wanting something in return à la Kim D, the Greeks.

    I’m just rewatching the end of the fight again, sans busy baby and what struck me was TB finally admitting his hate for Juicy (sorry Princess, he’s mine). Forget about the 2 years of accusations about the breakdown being because Teresa dislikes TSIL (you’ve converted me!) he’s finally said what we all know – he has a weird oedipus thing with Teresa. Juicy took away one of the ladies who looked after him, she got busy with her life and her children, he stop being the focus of attention: first child “syndrome”. He admitted as much at the therapy session. This child is happy to wallow in his hate, he is consumed by it.

    He sat there crying out of embarrassment. He couldn’t own his own behaviour “you’ve turned me into a bum like you”, TSIL in his ear – she wears the pants, she puts things into his head – why is she concerned with Teresa’s endorsements? What we have here are two people who were mollycoddle, who have an inflated sense of entitlement, jealous that someone has more.

    TB and TSIL relationship feeds off jealousy whereas Teresa and my Boyfriend have a real friendship.

    Dr V – she lost me when she started talking about her vagina. Vagina shmagina – she’s a Bravo plant and Caroline just wants to sell books. It is interesting that Meddling Manzo is backflipping on TSIL. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/real-housewives-new-jersey-feud-593450
    TSIL has never wanted to stay out of it, she stokes the fire whereas Juicy offers actual support.

    As for this whole KungFu business – good investigating Calypso. I like my “tea” to be supported by fact not hearsay.

      Someone pointed out here that both TSIL and TB are the babies in the family – last born and as you say, “mollycoddled”. I have seen, several times, that this combination in a relationship, is a recipe for disaster and usually does not end up well.

      And as you say, TSIL will never keep her nose out of Teresa and TB’s relationship. If they were to truly reconcile, she would have a much harder time controlling his every thought and move. Like Teresa said, TB needs to grow his balls back but TSIL will continue nipping them off as long as she can in order to stay “relevant”.

      • July 29, 2013 at 9:35 AM

        TSIL even said something along the lines of be in control of him – I’ll try and find the mark on my iTunes.

        • July 29, 2013 at 9:44 AM

          14 min mark. She doesn’t trust them together….. I don’t think his behaviour to Teresa could get much worse, even Rosie knew that. Gawd I want to give Ritchie a clip around the ears. For someone that doesn’t “give a shit” he sure likes to wade into the mire. Sorry to be discussing old news -ugh, it sucks being behind a week.

            And there was “I have to protect you.” Protect him – he says he’s a grown ass man – what does he need protection from his own sister for? Oh I forgot, he’s not really a grown ass man.

        Now, now ladies – do I have to referee?? There is plenty of Juicy to go around – and lest we forgot, he really is already taken. So all of you need to share what you can and/or live vicariously through Teresa. 😀

        • July 29, 2013 at 6:28 PM

          In light of today’s indictment, I broke up with him. He’s all yours now Sackem. So Jeannie, naw…it’s all good. No need to referee 😀

    was just reading wacko jacko’s blog on bravo, that lady is a whack job for real. she apologizes then tries and justify why she said the bad things that she said about Teresa and her brother while throwing everyone else under the bus saying it was a inside joke with all of us. Chris needs to hurry and get that lady to a mental institution. If you ask me nick may be better off than her. That lady is cray-cray. she really hates TEresa’s guts and she knows it, Caroline wants Teresa to make up with Jacqueline because she knows without Teresa neither she nor wacko have a story line. Caroline hates Teresa too and you can tell by the way that witch Lauren behaves. They are looking for job security now. I feel that some of the things said about Joe Gorga is true and Teresa is protecting him, she’s protected him his whole life and he’s ungrateful, but you can tell that he is a little off mentally. Melissa is just malicious, thats her new name malicious, she is just poison

    • NCGal

      Caroline and Jac clearly sided with the wrong people last season, and right, they do realize it now. I think they thought they could force her to leave, or Bravo maybe to can her. But Teresa makes the most money (just Bravo salary only) which makes her the least expendable. Caroline is seeing that now and clamoring to be filmed with her.

      Joe Gorga being off mentally – there IS something about him that isn’t right. There are some scenes he is in where he just does not look like he is grasping what is going on around him. I don’t know what it is. But I noticed it a couple of times when he was on the couch with Teresa, and when the cameras were on him alone when they were ice fishing. He seemed like he just doesn’t get what’s going on.

        Yeah they thought that they could team up and get her off, remember that’s what happened to Danielle but Danielle was not a fan favorite. So now that they see what the business is they are trying to jump back on the money train. CAroline thought that she would become the lead on the show and everyone else would be kissing up to her to film with her to get air time. Wrong… Kathy knows that Teresa really has no interest in making up with her and it could be because of Richie alone. So she’s feeling the hurt more than anyone because she already knows she on the chopping block and Melissa could care less about Kathy, she just used her to team up against Teresa.

    Meeting Teresa Half Way
    Melissa Gorga

    Melissa explains how Dr. V helped her to have a breakthrough with Teresa.
    Posted by Melissa Gorga on 20 min ago0

    OK. Did you ever think this would actually happen?!

    Thank you Jesus for Dr. V! She really is as incredible as she seemed. The woman was born with a gift to cut through the bullsh–. When I first came in, I was completely fed up, but Dr. V was able to break down our walls. She looked each of us in the eye and said, “Sit down, shut up, and listen.” She got right down to it. She was 100% correct that we need to communicate better, listen more, yell less, and discuss our issues face-to-face, not behind each other’s backs.

    Dr. V. told us that our family should be a unified front and not to allow outsiders and non-family members to tear apart what we are working so hard to rebuild. I was honest when I told Teresa that I was willing to meet her half way. We have both done things wrong. All Joe needed was to hear his sister say that she did do some things to hurt us. He was done after that. We were both ready to move on, and I am glad we did.

    Dr. V reiterated that our whole family should trust and rely on each other as we have in the past. In Season 3, when Teresa felt uncomfortable that Monica was at our Christmas party, we asked her to leave. No question. No explanation. Done. During the trip to California last season, when Teresa and Caroline were having trouble and Teresa wanted to leave, Joe and I left with her. Again, no question. At the end of the day, trust is going to take more time to repair, but we have to have each other’s backs, and Dr. V reminded us of that.

    Watching this episode put me back to that day and I want to hold on to that positive feeling. When people hug and make up, for me, it’s done. The slate is clean. You can’t forget everything that happened, but you start from a new baseline each time. A new beginning is a new beginning. When at peace, there’s nothing you could do to make me start up again. As Joe said, “She’s easy.” Peace is my natural set point. If I’m forced out of that place, I don’t feel right until I can get back there.

    As soon as we finished our session with Dr. V, I was ready to have some fun. I drink to celebrate. The fighting was over! Let’s party! I might have had a little too much vodka that night, but I was happy that we all made up. I just wanted everyone to have a good time. I can’t believe the conversation I was having with Rosie at the table! I don’t think I’ll ever look at a peach the same way again. Joe and I laughed watching this episode. Laughing is SO MUCH better than crying.

    I have to say that Caroline showed how much she truly cares about our family. Driving all those hours knowing she was coming into a bad situation. Even though she ended up just spending time with us, we all appreciated it. It really showed her character and devotion as a friend to our family. Thank you, Caroline, we love you!

    So glad to have turned a corner on the show. I hope that this episode is a good reminder to everyone on what we need to be doing to stay in this good place. We are family. And family is what matters most in the world.

    XOXO,
    Melissa

    This episode was also a good reminder and an eye opener to the fact that neither TSIL nor TB ever said they were sorry to Teresa and Joe for anything they have done.

    Yeah, we all can tell how you are keeping what you “learned” from Dr. V in the forefront and doing your best to maintain that united front, as well as face to face time with each other – not. Your previous blogs where you hurl accusations at Teresa about events in real time, not what was happening at the time of filming, disprove what you are trying to spin with this crock of crap.

    Oh, and you admit you drink to celebrate – well, maybe you should pass that information on to your nanny/sister Lysa who tweets you hardly ever drink. Another crock of crap. When will you people just give it up?

    If “Dr.” V is indeed of Italian descent, she would know that many European (Italian, Russian, etc.) immigrant families treat the sons (Joe Gorga) as princes, and the women they marry (Melissa) as outsiders and wannabes who will never be good enough for their precious sons/brothers. Teresa admitted it herself–she and her Mother did “EVERYTHING” for Joe Gorga. It’s kind of a sick, too-close-for-comfort relationship that these mothers and sisters have with the sons. No, it’s not sexual, but they make it SO hard for a son’s wife to enter the family and feel welcome. I know–I experienced it myself–my ex-husband was of Russian/Eastern European descent, and his family was completely alien to me. My parents are both from Germany (I was born in the US), and are extremely progressive, whereas his family was terribly judgmental and insular. Every move and comment I made was judged, dissected, and reported back to my ex-husband. Being the awful husband he was, he always sided with his family against me. I tried so hard to be agreeable, always walked on eggshells around them, but apparently they didn’t care that they were damaging our marriage. Good riddance. So, I do have some empathy for Melissa, no matter what her background is, because I think they put her through the wringer, which they shouldn’t do if they respect Joe Gorga’s marriage.

      We cant assume that you are the same kind of wife as TSIL. Personalizing this is to be expected but I’m curious…did your husband build you a Mcmansion so that you could be a poser? Do you buckle your kids in their car seats or let them ride around unrestrained? Did your husband use his parents house as collateral and then lose said home? Do you meet up for lunch with old bfs? Do you tweet endlessly along with your siblings about taking dpown your SIL? Did you ever threaten to move and blame a family members kids for “future bullying?” Did you imply that your SIL’s husband was cheating? Do you lie constantly about everything? If not you were probably indeed mistreated. I don’t blame you for being bitter. I do however blame TSIL.

    • Jeannie5233
      July 29, 2013 at 12:15 PM

      I married into an old-school Italian family. My husband was a prince. I earned my place as his princess; by showing respect, while my husband had my back when he felt it necessary.

      This not the case with TSIL and her husband.

    You know if anyone ever made accusations about me and my sis-in-law said to me “lets go confront this person.” I would be glad she had my back and together we could stop the rumors. Why is TSIL so afraid to confront people like the bald guy or Jan. She knows these people are telling the truth. Her face when Teresa said lets confront jan and Dr. Vagina agreed with her was priceless….

    • NCGal
      July 29, 2013 at 10:59 AM

      Because Jan has too much dirt of TSIL and TSIL knows it. Too risky to confront Jan.

    For those that can there is a Bravo video of unseen footage with TSIL, TB, Teresa and Dr. V where Teresa asks her sil to please have her family stop tweeting about her and TSIL states they never tweet about her and ask for proof. Here is the link http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-5/videos/dr-v-takes-on-the-feud

      July 29, 2013 at 11:51 AM

      Debbie J – Thank you for posting this link – I missed that video of outtakes from the “therapy” session.

      If anything, this proves either (a) TSIL is stupid, (b) delusional, (c) a blatant liar, or (d) all of the above. I’m going with (d).

      Her family NEVER has tweeted bad things about Teresa? Then she challenges Teresa to show proof?

      Umm – that is like when TSIL was trying to prove her financial situation and her house was not in jeopardy and she went on that interview challenging people to look it up on the internet. What?! It’s all over the place on the internet that clearly the Whorgas are not financially sound and that the house, in fact, is in jeopardy.

      Can we talk about the Marcos now? There is so much documentation here at FW about their ugly tweets and comments but I’ll just stick with the matriarch – Donna. Do we all remember the infamous tweet “No one wants to be you!!!” or the tweeting of TSIL’s wedding party with Teresa being tagged as, I believe it was “Kenny Washington”.

      It’s all on the internet – forever archived. Like I said, I’m sticking with (d).

      • July 29, 2013 at 12:12 PM

    Just viewed it, uncanny how Melissa can straight out lie and not miss a beat. Then she starts to defend her sisters by saying if it were Melania and Gia you would want them to have each others back. But no one can have Teresa’s back? The bottom line is Melissa’s sisters were badmouthing Teresa before Melissa was even on the show. Melissa condoned it.

    I believe that the WWHL episode was totally pre-recorded as people stated before. Andy tweeted a pic that said “Last mean in Italy! Teresa & Dr. V tonight!” So there is no way in hell that he could’ve made it back to the US when it is about a 9 hour flight. IF he did, that might explain his bitchassness in that episode, maybe he was tired, that is why he was short. One thing for sure, T looked FABULOUS!!!!!!

      After WWHL last night I tried to get on Bravo for their after show and it was unavailable. I don’t remember did he announce a live after show last night? I thought it was a given there would always be an after show.

    • July 29, 2013 at 12:07 PM

      If it is pre-recorded, it isn’t by much. Like I stated earlier, I know two people who have been callers…one actually made it on the show, one was on hold to be on and they ran out of time. I believe she might have been on the after show though. Via their facebook posts, it was happening pretty much live time.

  75. July 29, 2013 at 11:15 AM

    *Bookmarking ClosetFreak…forgot how much I love her Vlogs!* #spotonhilarity LOVED the section on JACQUELYN LAURITA INCEST COMMENT! I agree with CF that it could lead to a LAWSUIT. I think so far good employees T and Juicy could have successful lawsuits against Lil Joey’s charge and now Xanjax incest comment!

    Felt so bad for T the last two eps…her swollen eyes are heartbreaking. It’s a shame that she and Juice need the $$/exposure to put up with this BS…especially the BRAVO agenda displayed on WWHL/Dr. Vajayjay script.

    I have NO WORDS for Jaxie. #lowerthanpondSCUM And Chris will get NO SYMPATHY from me…he has revealed his shady self too many times to get compassion from me. #can’tmakeahouseweifeoutofahooker

    Don’t know or care if kungfu can back up the tea…anyone spreading the “love” for the Whorga’s to a wider audience is ok in my book, lol. ymmv of course. #grainofsalt

    I agree with those who also don’t really care if Melissa was a dancer/stripper/hooker/shore whore….it’s the fakeness and hypocrisy.

    I’ve been lurking for a long time. I am a huge Teresa fan. I don’t think her and juicy are perfect, but love them. I’ve been catching these tweets by Heather for a bit and at first I was happy that someone was defending T. Now, I personally think it has gone a little too far. Crossed the line a bit. It’s not going to help T and Mel at all for Heather to put all this personal info out there. But, I’m a hypocrite cause I love to read it….

    • July 29, 2013 at 12:14 PM

      Welcome Jess! I agree with you on Heather. She’s walking a fine line and needs to back off a bit.

    i starting to feel like the cast watch an episode then come here, feel the water then write their blogs. in a weird way we are helping them do damage control. i’m i the only one feeling this. by the way this cast is nuts, except T but the longer she stays on this show the nuttier she becomes. when will this end, please give the Guidice’s a show of their own
