  • The happy side - Kathy Wakile, Amber Marchese, Melissa Gorga & Teresa Giudice

The twins – they’re boring, nasty, rude, bitter, annoying and lifeless. That’s all I’ve got.

There is always someone who wants to hijack the reunion show with not answering ‘important’ questions as they don’t want to share anymore of their ‘open’ lives. The part 1 reunion of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey is no different, Teresa Giudice, who has apparently had enough of discussing her legal issues, which she did bring upon herself or at least her husband did, doesn’t want to talk about her fraud anymore.

Claudine “Dina” Manzo, actually had the nerve to say Teresa’s a “good girl” and prison should be for the murderers out on the street. I’m going to chalk this up to her medication dosage that day. Since when do good girls steal and lie to the government and are subsequently charged with a 41-count indictment conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. Then because the evidence is so overwhelming all you can do is say, “I’m guilty”. Claudine must drank some dragon juice mixed with tiger blood and petroleum.

Teresa’s cousins, sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri who make it to the couch (why I’ll never know). A video clip is played where the sisters are talking to their mother, Teresa’s aunt who says, “When you don’t do the right thing… It always catch[es] up with you,” which is completely right. Family is family but they don’t always have to agree with you. Teresa of course has a problem with this and storm off the set to the bathroom saying: “I need a break.”

Teresa while in the bathroom, we hear telling a producer, no video of course, “I don’t want to be out there for that conversation. To me, family doesn’t act like that. What my aunt said is very inappropriate.” So is fraud Tre. Then we hear Teresa getting excited over a penny she finds in the bathroom, she later spends $10,000 on daughter Gia Giudice’s music video.

Teresa is asked “Do you want to tell me why you left?” by weak, terrible host and ‘boss’, Andrew Cohen to which she replies, “I’m going through a lot and I needed a break, next question.” Claudine “Dina” Manzo pipes in and echoes Teresa’s statement, “next question”. Shut up Claudine.

Amber Marchese had to defend her husband to the twins and Claudine, she claims she is not abused by him as she would rough him up. Jim has acted like a a** all season. Where did they find him!? He the best/worst housewife ever!

Next up is zenless, enemy of all families, Claudine “Dina” Manzo. Claudine is asked various questions about her relationships with her family, specifically sister – Caroline Manzo, brother Chris Lauria and his wife Jacquline Laurita. What we realize from Claudine’s zanax’d diatribe is she is high, delusional and stupid. She has never met her autistic nephew, Nicholas, son of Chris and Jacqueline. She claims she knows him in her own way and prays for him at her altar as she has a picture on this altar – this is her way of knowing him. What planet is she a sane woman? When she left RHONJ everyone thought she was the nice one, who didn’t want drama, then it was announced she was coming back to RHONJ as Caroline and Jacqueline would not be returning. That’s not peaceful and zen, that’s crazy and she’s a liar. Who comes back to a drama filled reality show? Claudine that’s who!

Claudine states that her brother Chris reached out to Claudine when she announced her separation, but she claims Jacqueline stopped him and wouldn’t let them meet, how did she know? Claudine also states that she invited Caroline, Chris, and Jacqueline to her daughter Lexi’s high school graduation party, but no one showed up and she or Lexi were invited to Caroline’s daughter Lauren’s engagement party. “Do you know how hurtful that was? Hurt me, I can take it. Hurt my kid… All bets are off.”

This is Claudine delusional part 2, part 1 was when she married a man Tommy Manzo who publicly admitted that he cheated on her. Part 2 of her delusion is she and her siblings have very serious issues of which they do not speak to each other for years and Claudine expects invitations to major family events to be accepted and nothing to be discussed about their overwhelming hurtful, painful and obviously serious issues. Who thinks that?

Melissa Gorga, jumps in, who we all know was not getting along with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, and says the show is about “mending family.” Really Melissa, RHONJ is not about mending anything but lining the cast members pockets with money, you all pretending to be rich, backstabbing friends and family, making Bravo charge more advertising dollars and for viewers like myself to enjoy the mess that is all of your dreadful, deceitful lives. Both Melissa and Teresa say their relationship is fine, but we could tell that it wasn’t. Claudine responds, “You would not have come on the show …” but miraculously Claudine loses her train of thought, her second zanax must have kicked in, Melissa goads her by asking, “If what?” We know she meant to say, ‘you wouldn’t have come on the show if you had a good relationship with Teresa’.

I’ll rate this episode a 6 out of 10 it was actually entertaining and I was tweeting up a storm. Part 2 of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion airs on the 9th November at 8/7c on Bravo. I can’t wait for the most hated housewife of all time Jim Marchese to make his appearance. What were your thoughts about this dog and pony show? Post your comments below.
