The show hasn’t even started yet and already one of the Giudice’s is saying something idiotic. Joes wants to know why there is a rip in a the monopoly board. I can’t tell if he was joking or not. I really hope that this is just his lame sense of humor and he didn’t really think the board was ripped.
Teresa says that if she doesn’t get something big for their anniversary, she isn’t gonna sleep with Joe for a month. I’m not sure if she considers that to be a punishment, or his anniversary gift. How can I get in touch with Joe? Because I would like to let him know that there are some hookers on the corner downtown who have more beauty and class in their platform heels than Teresa has in her entire body and they only cost about 50 bucks a night.
Christine is planning a sweet 16. Some people were talking shit online saying that she put up fliers around school advertising her party and that’s why there were so many people there. I, for one, fail to see what is wrong with this. Especially since it was for charity. When I was in high school a lot of people advertised their parties like that. It was a great way to make sure a lot of people show up and no one is left out.
Jacqueline is defending Kim G – the woman who testified in court against her daughter. And according to her twitter yesterday, she is still on good terms with her. Is Jacqueline stupid, disloyal, or does she just poses a Jesus Christ-like ability to forgive? I can’t tell. The scene would not be complete without some talk about Danielle, and the hair pull, and the same things they already talked about in the last episode, and the one before that.
Joe tells Chris that he is having financial problems. But since he already planned to file for bankruptcy, he figured he might as well throw in a helicopter ride, a hotel room, and a diamond ring before filing the papers. Hey, why not?
This broad doesn’t know what the crown jewels are! You know what would be a good way for Teresa to earn some extra cash? She should sue the New Jersey school system for completely and utterly failing her, and use The Real Housewives tapes as evidence. I don’t think it’s cute or funny that she doesn’t know what the crown jewels are. That level of ignorance is disturbing.
I can not be bothered to take screen shots of Albie’s scenes. Why does this kid have a story line? One episode was enough, why are we still talking about him? Oh, right, because his mother is boring and has no life or identity of her own. Fast forward through this scene.
OMG I do this too! Mini marshmallows in chocolate sauce! But I like to crush up some graham cracker pie crust too. I dip the marshmallows in the chocolate sauce and then press them into the crumbs. Soooo good!
This was a sweet moment. Jillian gets insecure and doesn’t want to sing, but Danielle believes in her and pushes her to work through her fears and do it anyway. For all the faults Danielle has, and all the crazy things she does and says in front of her daughters, she really loves them, and believes in them, and supports them 100%. And I believe that is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to being a parent. And in that respect, I think Danielle is a good mom. She talks to her daughters with respect and admiration and love. And I think that makes up for a lot of the crazy they are exposed to.
Teresa wants Joe to describe in words how happy he is. I think facial expressions and body language speak louder than words.
Teresa said she was surprised that Joe got her a present like that – you know, with the money laundering, fraud and bankruptcy economy and all.
I don’t know how she could be surprised with all the begging, pleading, and threats she made about getting “something big”. I doubt Joe has that kind of taste in jewelry. I wouldn’t be surprised if she dragged him down to the jewelry store, pointed at that ring, and said “THAT is what you owe me for 10 years and 4 children! Buy it for me or you will be sorry!”
Caroline’s kids again – fast forward
Danielle says she wants to wear the engagement ring from her ex husband because it is just a nice piece of jewelry and this is a fancy event. But really, she just wants to show off in front of his new wife who’s ring is not as big. I think that Danielle needs a man that wants to take care of her, pamper her, and will maybe play a bit of a daddy role in her life. If she got that, I think it would really change the way she behaves in a lot of situations.
Jac tries to act like a parent and teach Trashley a lesson. Let it go Jac. It’s too late. If you still have to parent, teach lessons, and explain right from wrong to your adult child, then you have already failed and need to just give up, do not pass go, game over. /Fail.
Danielle states that since the birthday party was for charity, everything was donated and she didn’t have to pay for any of it. Sneaky! And smart! Now I know where Christine “came up with” the idea to make her birthday a charity event.
Danielle’s dress is amazing. I hope she actually kept this one and didn’t return it to Neiman Marcus the next day.
They all look really beautiful here. Danielle’s pride in her daughters boarders on obnoxious at times, but it must be nice for the girls to have a mother who is so proud of every little thing they do.
We actually made it through this episode with very little drama and Teresa managed an entire episode without mentioning Danielle’s name. I guess she didn’t really need Danielle in order to make herself relevant in this episode though. I think most of us were happy enough watching Teresa beg for gifts she knew they couldn’t afford, fail at speaking English, and generally making an utter ass out of herself. Next week we get to see her throw another ridiculously expensive party that she doesn’t have the money to pay for. We also get to see Kim and Danielle’s big fight. Bad move on Kim’s part in my opinion. Bravo has enough people on Team Manzo. What they need is a wife who is willing to film with Danielle, someone who can be a bridge between the women. I think Kim most likely killed what little chance she had of becoming a housewife when she ended the friendship with Danielle. But I guess we will just have to watch what happens.
