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.

What was that comment Danielle made to Teresa that set her off to the point of flipping the table? Something like; let me break it down to you. Obviously her intelligence has been called into play in the past, the reason why she was so enraged. I believe she knows she is a bit slow. That's a reason why she overcompensates by always wanting to be right. Poor thang.

teresa is making herself look bad..noone had anything to do with it...u can totally tell that everything that is coming out of her mouth is a lie...she is trying to cover her ass...look at her body movements..anytime anything came up about something she did or said she gets extremely fidgety and pushes her hair back alot...if that doesnt scream uncomfortable because im getting called out than i dont know what it is...seriously watch it again and u will see what i mean...watch her reactions to everything when an uncomfortable question comes up...shes get extremely defensive and starts fidgeting and moving her hair back!!!

Hey Lori, You should be asking that question of Caroline. She is the one that dug up the dirt on Danielle. She admitted "I bought the book.." in season 1. Caroline acts like she is the voice of God. She is far from that. She is a mean spirited broad. If she is really a friend of Teresa's she should try to work it out. Instead she throws her under the bus and joins with the other castmates. She is a REAL friend. Truthfully I am sick of ALL the housewives and don't think I will be tuning in again.

I think Teresa got just what she deserved, she is a very jealous person, and hateful. She need to go back to school and learn the english language.

Oh where to beging.. Teresa I used to like you but you now annoy the hell out of me espically when your being fake and your voice goes way up high .. Caroline is a classy woman and honestly when someone is sittng there lying their is a point where you just have to call them out good job I can't wait for part two... and Teresa you did look like the devil the bad thing with lying so much is that you forget the lies that you tell.

Caroline is AS mean, AS ghetto and AS hateful as Teresa--they are two of a kind. Caroline (pre-weight loss) dug up dirt on a pittiful and unstable woman (Danielle) b/c she didn't want her around--period! She then insisted that both Jacqueline and Teresa choose between Danielle and the "family." She laughed with joy as Teresa flipped tables, verbally abused and facilitated an assault on Danielle. Now Teresa is out of control??? BISH PUHLEESE! Teresa is the same train wreck she's always been--it's just that now that her financial/criminal issues are coming out Caroline wants to be seen as a different "kind of Italian." Amazing still how Caroline says that when it "suited her purpose she was my friend..." really? Well that goes double for the Evil Rooster. Teresa and Joe are a hot messy mess -- this goes w/o saying--but the notion that Caroline is any better is absolutely delusional! They're both trash!
