Caroline Manzo is full of such quotes and I still love her. In next week’s preview she says ” If you hang around with garbage you start to stink!” Gotta lover her. Also when you google “Caroline Manzo” “Caroline Manzo Son” pops up. Ahhh, Albie.
Real Housewives of NJ does not deserve a recap, it was more of just a little catch up episode. I just want to say three things about it until I get to the New York chicks.
#1. I want to make red sauce with Teresa.
#2. I wanted to SMACK Danielle’s daughter Allison when she smirked like all hell about her sexual activity with a pimple faced 23 year old who works at block buster. She looked so proud. Gloating. In front her parents, on TV.
#3. Dina has the two ugliest dogs on earth.
OK…. on to the good stuff.
Real Housewives of New York this week was BEYOND. It was just the kind of juicy craziness we love. Plus a few new things.
In no particular order, my comments:
#1. Jill, when you have a screaming match with more than one person at a party, its probably YOU.
#2. Bethany crying about her dad was very sad, what was also strange was how discolored she looked. Did anyone else notice that she looked like an overexposed photo on the way to the airport?
#3. Gotham Magazine has lost all credibility. Not only do they PAY Kelly to write for them, BUT they ALSO threw a party for her, AND they let her think she invented taking photos of street fashion.
#4. Luann is the most torturous person on the show. I CANT STAND HER. STOP DEFENDING JILL. You are not her Mommy. More like her lackey lap dog Ginger. ALSO, why are you dating that guy from Sex and the City who Samantha had sex with when she thought she was going through menapause? You know that creepy old guy who laughs with his tounge hanging out of his mouth? EW. Baby Boomers gone bad.
#5. They have a new friend, but I am so distrustful of these editors at Bravo that I imagine there is some purpose to allowing her to appear on TV other than just “she is their friend.” She must be married to some higher up…. Something is fishy in Bravo Town, especially since her party had only the housewives, no food and no music. They should just call it a set already.
#6. Luann takes the girls to a spa, and we see a tender NYC moment. The women are endearing when they admit how their divorces hurt them, raising children alone is terrifying and how sad it is when their husbands no longer loved them.
#7. Jill is a liar. Alex told her about Bethany’s father being deathly ill and she didnt bother to try to call her then. ALSO, she only misses Bethany now because she wants to be part of the action somehow. She needs to be involved so she can somehow still have the attention on her. She cannot let Bethany move on. I still don’t understand why Alex’s message was so devastating to her. She essentially said the same thing to Bethany and to a billion other people a few HUNDRED times.
#8. Avery is my favorite person on the show. WHY is Ramona getting married again, other than that she needs a plot line this season? Why would someone bother to do this again? I could barely get through it the first time! I would much prefer a second honeymoon to a second wedding!
#9. Ramona showed a lot of sense in her fight with Jill at the ”party.” I actually agreed with her, and I loved that she told Jill that she didnt want to get involved because the last time she did Jill told B to F off and made her cry. SPOT ON Ramona!
#10. ALEX was so amazing in her little speech. I loved it.
“You are in high school. YOu are a mean girl and you are in high school. And while you are in high school, I am in Brooklyn, trying to make a living and raise a family in this economy.”
LOVED IT. wanted to slap everyone who smirked and poor dumb Kelly who was sitting right between them!
She also said “ I dont want to you to tell me whats wrong with my children, I dont want you to tell me whats wrong with my house, I dont want you to tell me whats wrong with my husband.”
To which Jill replied … .”Well then, I guess we cant be friends because thats me.”
Sorry Jill, that was SUCH an immature response. I don’t give people passes on being inhumane because its part of their “personalities.” In that case, Hitler should be forgiven because “that’s just him”… Everyone can give that excuse and its unacceptable! If someone has a big mouth, does that mean they shouldn’t be held responsible for the things they say? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Like if Jill were to call me and say, I cant believe you wrote this mean stuff about me, according to her I could just answer her, well thats just me, you don’t have to be friends with me. HAHA.
Anything else…. Hmmmmmm… Oh yes. Sanja?Sonja? Sonya? is my new favorite housewife. She is not fluent in housewife like the rest of them, and so her performance is a little more authentic. Also that party that she threw at her house, that was what real UES people look like… Mummies. Did you see that? There are points when Sonja looks like she might be 35, and then other points where she might be 60… and for all her sex talk, she really does look like she just hopped out of bed in some scenes. Who agrees?
Ok… I need comments. I dont write these recaps for my health, people. I write them so we can all discuss!!!
**** Just learned that BETHANY HAD A BOY!
