The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Going Bankrupt

by at . Comments

Belly up, man up, pay up. The Real Housewives of New Jersey picks up right where it left off and we'll recap it right here in THG's +/- review!

The family feud continues as Ashley's parents try and talk sense into her. Unfortunately, Jacqueline can't hold it together. She's a sobbing mess and won't hear Ashley's apology. Not that it would have meant anything. Ashley admits the only reason she was there is her father pushing her. Minus 5 for the whole thing being such a disaster.

Poooooor Ashley

Daddy tells Ashley she's done nothing but party her ass off and it's time to grow up. Plus 7 for saying it but does it really matter since he's headed back to Texas?

Ashley says her mom plays the victim but Ash is no slouch in that department herself. They both end up whining and crying and yelling at one another and nothing is truly accomplished. Minus 10 for such a waste of everyone's time.

On a lighter note, Kathy decides to have a Goddess party for the ladies to show off her catering skills. I have to admit, Kathy seems to have quite a talent. The food looked fantastic. Plus 8.

And as Rich says, "She's not stealing recipes from her mother or mother-in-law and putting them into a book." An extra Plus 5 for the dig at Teresa. Hey, Teresa hates his wife so I think he's allowed.

The party is light hearted fun and includes a belly dancer. Plus 3. But Teresa doesn't get it. She wants naked male servers instead. I'm afraid it's not that type of party.

Hold Me Back Bro!

I loved Melissa's goddess outfit. She's definitely the goddess with the edge and it fit her style. Plus 6.

Teresa's bad attitude invades the party. She questions Kathy's motives and rehashes the Kim G incident. Minus 5 for not knowing when to let it go.

Teresa keeps smiling. She says she's happy her legal issues are resolved but her husband still owes $260,000. There will be a private sale of their assets instead of a public auction and Teresa will be able to buy back some of their things with her own personal funds. Sounds like she needs to keep writing those books.

My biggest pet peeve is that the lesson Joe and Teresa seem to have learned though all this is that they should have lied in court. Minus 10. Joe admitted to signing someone else's name on a legal document. He claims he was authorized but when is that ever OK?

Back at the party, Caroline and Lauren earn a Plus 7 for taking pictures of the ladies with the belly dancer to be used for blackmail purposes later. Perfect!

Jacqueline is shocked when Viktoria says she's going upstairs to study. Apparently those are words she's never heard from Ashley.

I Just Dog Whispered You

Back home things just continue to spiral out of control. Ashley's angry at the world and calls her mother a bitch. Plus 5 for Lauren's comment that "I would have a freaking black eye if I spoke to my parents that way." No doubt. Caroline doesn't put up with any crap.

In the end, I think Chris is just tired of hearing the bitching. God knows I am. He goes up to Ashley's room and tells her to get out.

So do you think it will stick? Is Ashley out on her little privileged derriere or will Chris and Jacqueline think twice before the door hits her on it?

We'll have to wait until next week to find out. Here's how this week's points shake out:



this is how i feel teresa needs to leave her husband he is a big jerk he shows her know respect and he needs to stay out of her and her brothers problems he seems to be good people but his wife she needs to cover up more


Here's is a fact teresa is the spot ligth woman since the start from the show u haters live her alone GOD what's meli and kath problem they just show up in this just trying to steel teresa spot light por her just face it she is teresa to the T she has better sense of fahion.I've noticed meli trys to copy tere a lot meli ur such a copy katter the show keeps on glowing cuz of teresa and no one can beat GIA"s cat walk srry!


Danielle is such a drama queen, she is paranoid all the time because she is the one always starting trouble. Would love see Caroline kick her ass, but Caroline is to classy a lady to do that. Lova ya Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline.


Danielle is such a drama queen...and why did she bring Danny, was she gonna sick him on the "real women" on the show, how pathetic. I think she is afraid of the other housewives because she is he one who is always starting trouble...Love ya Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline


Ashley, dahhhling, don't let the front door hit you on your backside on the way out. If she really leaves I'd have all the locks changed so she couldn't get back in.


Average looking? Ugly? Fat?...Thank god I live in St.Louis or I'd be in big trouble!


@Rachel interesting how i just looked up apts in los angles & didnt see $3000 rent for 1 bedroom. $ 3000 rent $ for a 3-4 bedroom house but not 1. A one bedroom usually goes for about $1300 at least in the real estate websites i saw. & i live in la county btw.


Ashley moving to LA is a joke! I live in LA -- she will NEVER make it here. She might be a big deal among her friends in Nowhere NJ, but in LA she will be invisible. Her very minor sorta celebrity will be unknown here. Also - not to be mean, but realistic - she might be considered average looking in NJ but in LA she will be looked upon as very unattractive and fat. It's very expensive to live here -- a 1 bedroom apt in a halfway decent area is at least $3000/mo - where's her money coming from?
She better GET REAL, wise up, see the light, realize how lucky she is, be happy as a big fish in a small pond & get her life together. Plus, she obviously desperately needs an education!


By the way, why does Ashley always have to have something plopped on top of her head? Premature baldness, maybe? HMMM? Just a note-- her precious daddy (the sperm donor) & stepmother were arrested on suspicion of arson & tax evasion in Texas.


Hopefully Teresa won't wear that incredebly ugly black with silver Tiajuna dress she wore to the Christmas party at her brother's house when she appears as hostess at her new future resturant. She is a very obnoxous and jealous woman who needs to keep her stupid mouth shut.
