The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Recap: It's Bash Teresa Night!

by at . Comments

It was bash Teresa Giudice night at The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion but she certainly invited the abuse. THG breaks it all down in our + or - review ...

Jacqueline Laurita bowed out of the event. Minus 5. I always thought the players were contractually obligated to show up for these things, even when they all hated one another and looked like fools at the end. But it looked like Bravo let her slide.

The turmoil had something to do with Teresa and an event that took place in season four which was currently being filmed. I suppose that's more reason to tune in next season.

Giudice on the Defensive

Caroline earned a Plus 12 when she admitted she was mean to Melissa and Kathy Waklie at the start of the season. She had judged them on what Teresa had told her before ever having met them. That was unfair but at least she owned up to it.

Teresa still swore what she wrote in her cookbook was nothing but a joke. She won't say which of her three sister in laws she was insulting and sees nothing wrong with throwing out barbs about Caroline's son. Minus 8. There was nothing funny in what she wrote and she can't see anyone's opinion but her own.

We had to sit through yet one more showing of the christening debacle. Minus 5. I hope to never have to watch that nonsense again. At least the housewives had the decency to lapse into stunned silence after it was shown.

Melissa Gorga earned a Plus 10 for admitting that her husband helped escalate the fight. That's progress. Another Plus 10 to Joe Gorga who supposedly told Caroline he regretted his actions and knew he was going to get a public beating after it was shown. Of course Caroline was blunt as ever and agreed with him.

When asked, Kathy said that Teresa and Joe Gorgas' tempers were acceptable. That they're just passionate people. Bull. Minus 11. They're adults who should know better than to scream, curse, and throw things like foul mouthed toddlers having a tantrum.

I don't mean to be the grammar nazi but what is with the "yous"? Listening to the Housewives families speak was like watching My Cousin Vinny week after week. Minus 10.

I almost couldn't believe that Teresa Giudice could tell Melissa she wasn't a good wife because she didn't invite herself to the premiere party while she was in the hospital with a newborn, then went on to accuse her of marrying Joe for his money and followed it up by saying Melissa was the one ruining things. "We're in a good place. Why are you going back there?" Does the woman not listen to what she says. She's the one who was dragging out past history. Minus another 10.

Did anyone else get the feeling that Teresa's completely clueless about her family's legal and financial troubles or that bankruptcy fraud could end them up in federal prison?

Her "call my lawyer" response to Andy was the smartest thing she said all night. Plus 8.

Plus 15 to Caroline Manzo who called the entire conversation a "whirlwind of stupid." Yup. That about sums it up.

We'll be back for part two next week. In the meantime, here's where the points land ...

EPISODE TOTAL: +6. SEASON TOTAL: -68.

They all need to get a hobby. Theresa is stupid and self centered. Her husband Joe is an idiot. Carolyn thinks she's Dr. Phil with the addition of a "my crap don't stink" attitude. She should get off her high horse and pay a little more attention to Lauren because it's extremely apparent that she feels left out of her family's life….a feeling that a simple ring will not fix. Melissa is two faced and is out for fame…but her and her husband are cute together so at least it was entertaining. Kathy and her husband are trouble makers. Jacqueline. .Oh Please ! Grow a set and kick you lazy unappreciative daughter out on her ass. Sorry RHWNJ..I'm done. This year really blew it for me. Between the cast and Andy Cohen, who is a moron, there's no longer a reason to watch.

If being able to lie on the spot was a free trip to heaven, Teresa would be Heaven bound. It was obvious that she was tripping as she was trying to avoid Andy Cohen's questions on The Reunion Show. I am all for progress and being able to live and let live, but Teresa appears to be very mean spirited, and is under the impression that she is a ready made star. In a few "Short" years, she will be a trivia question on Where are they Now!!

I cant stand Teresa or Joe Guidice. They are both all about themselves. No one else can be successful, and IF they are, it is because they are riding on Teresa or Joes coattails. ANd Teresa can NEVER admit when she is wrong...it is always the OTHER guys fault. Teresa is sooooo two-faced and I would never trust her. The world is all about Teresa or she is not happy.

I have stated this many times, "Teresa lives in la-la land." She is a jealous, mean-girl and refuses to be aware of what's happening around her. And her husband is a lazy, inconsiderate brut who continuously disrespect her. I feel so sorry for their children.

I watched the episode twice. I felt bad for Teresa. She is not evil, She was set up. Kathy and Melissa are such wannabees, I couldn't take it. Ugly old Caroline, go away. It is so obvious her jealousy of teresa, and her bs about family. The Manzos goofed on the entire Guidice family all season, and now act as though they are superior. Enough! Teresa ia not innocent, but she and Dina are friends, and Jac didn't have the nerve to show up, but she tweets. That is why Ashley abuses her--she is full of it and loves the drama! Nice to see Melissa own up to her evil doings, but she was acting like she was a hurt victim. Give me a break--she is as dirty as it gets. I thought Danielle was bad, but this crowd made her look like a saint!

TEAM TERESA!!! She will get it soon enough that she is adding fuel to the fire, but she is still a great person. I love her and I think JOE, her husband, is the bad influence on Teresa... Ever think of that? But she has no choice but to believe his BS and love him. If I were her I would leave Joe, and mend the relationships that are in question. As far as the other HW's..They are no angels either. To each their own.
