This week, we deal with the fallout from the Summer Solstice party. Kathy hosts a barbecue, where no one shows up, save for the Gorgas and Giudices, and Teresa and Joe come head-to-head. Caroline gets a Jag and a special night alone with her hubby in the apartment at the Brownstone, and Jacqueline finds herself missing Ashlee
for some crazy reason. Check out my favorite scenes from this week’s episode!
Caroline seemes to be a little too invested in this fight between the Giudices and the Gorgas. Enough anger towards Teresa; let’s hear about your fight with Dina and the other mysterious sibling you don’t talk to! Let’s all hear more about your family’s alleged connection to the mob. And you thought we had forgotten!
Ok – seriously, Joe? You have to take a “big dumper”?! This is too much reality – can we acknowledge the cameras are there to capture every word?
I love that Teresa called the Solstice party a “soul cyst” party. Maybe that’s what she’s suffering from? Burn. Kidding!
Damn Joe, with the insults! Melissa’s a “horse face”? He called my beloved Rosie a “butchie boy”?! And Rich a “frog”? Okay, that last one I could see. But don’t you ever… EVER… talk about my Rosie that way! Not on my watch, boy.
Joe said he knows “so many guys who went with her.” Maybe Melissa had boyfriends before she was married. Not a huge scandal. Not all of us were virgins until age 27. Allegedly…
I do feel like everyone is ganging up on Teresa and I feel bad for her. But they’re ganging up on her for good reason. Girl needs to chill.
Nice play by Jacqueline wearing the Skinny Italian tee-shirt. Switzerland…
ditz personal trainer, Jolene, is the one who had a spat with Rosie at the Summer Solstice party, and for that, I hate her. Jolene arrives and is inexplicably dropped off by a cab, has an open bottle of wine in her bag, seems hungover, her pants are inside out, and the girl seems just a few IQ points behind the norm.
The first thing I thought when I saw Christopher testing out the Jag was: aren’t Jaguars like old people cars? It made sense when they gave it to Caroline. KIDDING! That’s a ridic expensive anniversary gift, but if Mama Manzo ain’t worth it, I don’t know who is.
Poor Kathy – the kid’s friends are no-shows, as are the Manzo/Laurita families. How embarrassing!
And, really, Rich? You think anyone at the high school doesn’t know that the Wakiles are related to Teresa? That’s the whole reason you’re on the show, FOOL!
Jacqueline’s sister, Mary, looks like she is Ashlee’s age. Christ, Jacqueline and Ashlee’s relationship is difficult.
Teresa’s kids are such little divas wherever they go and they are truly the most entertaining kids on the show or, actually, in life. They seriously sparkle.
Rosie is so awesome belly-flopping into the pool. That’s a down-home kinda chick.
THANK YOU for not talking about your sex life, Caroline. With certain other cast members talking about staining their pants, a little modesty is refreshing.
Caroline seriously has the best skin of any of the Real Housewives on any season. Clearly, she has kept her fair peaches and cream complexion out of the sun and it has boded well for her.
Richie really hit the nail on the head, when he said Teresa didn’t think of Melissa and her kids as her family. She has to accept it some time.
I get why Teresa feels offended by Joe telling Melissa that Teresa called her a gold-digger, but it’s Joe’s prerogative to tell his wife whatever he wants, especially given the current status of their relationship.
Why would Gia hate Melissa when she met her? It looks like Gia was three or four at Melissa’s wedding; could Teresa be exaggerating or, dare I say, making it up? I don’t remember hating anyone at that age. Besides anyone who ever told me no. And Melissa does seem to be a good aunt. As Teresa is saying she’s not a good aunt, Melissa is picking up Audriana and cuddling her.
I love that Teresa is wearing the “love” necklace, during all these conversations. Talk about mind games.
Melissa is being extremely calm and supportive; I don’t think she could handle the situation any better than she already is. I really think that Teresa and Joe have to stop talking about a better relationship and just have one. They need to stop bashing each other’s partners and make a concerted effort to hang out and get along. Must I solve all their problems?
