The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Having a Field Day

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New Jersey had a field day last night. 

No, really. They called it Field Day when the whole gang got together to have some fun. So who can't get through the day without a meltdown? 

We'll break it all down for you in THG's +/- review.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives of NJ

Teresa Giudice heads home after Kathy's party and tells Joe all about the argument with her brother. Well, that's a mistake. Wasn't she just telling her brother that he shouldn't share their conversations with his wife?

Minus 10. She should really take her own advice.

Joe Guidice reaction has become so typical of him I'm no longer surprised. He tells his wife, "You're a f**kin' idiot for even talking to your f**kin' brother." 

Nice. Minus 12.

But it actually gets worse. After cursing out his brother-in-law he tells Teresa the Gorgas aren't allowed in his home. When Teresa says that will upset her parents Guidice says he'll kick them out too. 

He ends his tirade by telling her, "When I say something, you f**kin' listen and shut up," and if she doesn't he threatens to leave her and the kids.

What a guy. Minus 20.

Of course Teresa doesn't take any of it seriously. She swears they never fight and does nothing but make excuses for her husband. Minus 15. She truly is the queen of denial.

What's worse is that she seems to think she's hiding her disastrous life from her kids. What a mess.

Speaking of mess, did you see Teresa's bathroom? OK, it was huge but it was also the gaudiest, ugliest bathroom I've ever seen and I'm sure it cost tens of thousands to make it that way. 

The drama at the Guidices' gets a little tamer when Gia says she needs a bra. Does she? No, not really but I'm sure there are girls in her class who do and who wants to be left out. So Teresa takes her bra shopping. Plus 8.

The down side…Teresa keeps laughing at her daughter. Not cool. She's telling Gia she's got nothing to put in a bra. OK, so she doesn't but it's not nice to embarrass the girl in the middle of the store.  Minus 6.

As everyone gets ready for Field Day, Lauren's lamenting her weight problem. I was confused when Caroline kept comparing Lauren to her father since Albert doesn't look overweight. That was until they mentioned he's had lap band surgery. Now things make a little more sense.

On to Field Day where Lauren really didn't want to stand next to Melissa in those short, shorts. I just don't think they could get any tinier.

As everyone gathers, the news gets around that Joe Gorga sent Teresa an apology text after their fight. Plus 10. He seems to really love his sister and wants to make things better.

But Teresa's telling people she's hasn't heard from him since their fight.  So…did she not see the text or is she lying to her friends to get more attention? The truth is anyone's guess.

Field Day goes off with only one pint sized hitch. When Gia thinks her uncle Joe is cheating at the games she has a meltdown. But instead of letting the girl go off and pout, Jacqueline and Caroline won't leave her alone. 

Minus 9. Although Gia was being a brat, they could have simply let her be.  Instead they just gave the little drama queen more attention which is what she craved in the first place.

Hmmm ... wonder where she gets that from.



What does Jacqueline know about raising kids??? Her daughter Ashley is a loser and looks like a big drug addict, and Jacqueline had to ship Ashley to a 'program' in Nevada...(pssst - think she's AWAY). Caroline is probably a worse mother than Jacqueline. Caroline just loves her little Albie and creams whenever she speaks about him, she likes Criss (who gained about 20lbs - guess he and his FRIEND are very happy together...), and then Caroline drums on her daughter because she's overweight. If I were Teresa I would not want those two to be near my daughters.


jacqueline not need a friend like teresa,all teresa can do is lie on her own family tht goes to show everyone just wht she is all about...jacqueline is to pretty and sweet of a lady to hang around trash like tht....


joe and melissa need to just leave joe nut ass crazy ,lieing sister alone .she is doing wht she is doing allbealles she is not happy in her own live so she not want her brother to be happy r anyone at all.


Have to say I would risk jail if I had to put up with Teresa' s ugly kids. They all deserve to have their asses whipped until they couldn't sit down for a week. What the hell was wrong with Gia that she couldn't go get her own mother? Didn't see any reason for the temper tantrum she had.


justcheryl - LMFAO. Jealous of what? Her ugly kids? Her horrendous husband? The way they live WAY beyond their means to keep up appearances? Or Teresa's complete stupidity and insanity? I can't think of a thing about that woman that I would have to be jealous of. Melissa, on the other hand, has adorable kids. She is rational, smart, beautiful and talented. She keeps on taking hits from that bitch Teresa and turning the other cheek for the sake of her husband and his family. If I'd been facing off with her at that solstice party, I would have kicked her ass. She DOES owe Melissa an apology, but she is too stupid and stubborn to admit it. Then, she goes running home to tell her fatpighusband every little detail when the entire fight was about Teresa being mad at her brother for doing the same thing she just did. THAT shows how crazy Teresa is. That she can excuse anything she and her fatpighusband says or does, but nobody else can do it.


TEAM MELISSA: just what i would expect from someone on melissa's team. your jealousy spilleth over maybe????


lisa marie: VERY WELL SAID!!!


- cont- If she had done that to me, the last thing she would get is what she was demanding. That is how this kid deserves to be treated. Not only are they physically repulsive looking kids, they are the rudest brats I have ever seen. I am sure we all saw the episode where Melanoma called Fido a "stupid whore." Nice. That is the same kid that walked up and slapped the Aereola right in the face for no reason. Teresa is creating four monsters by raising them with a false sense of entitlement. And sadly, they won't even have good looks to fall back on one day. I live for the day when she and that pig she is married to go broke, and they their rotten kids have to live like the rest of us working stiffs. Trust me, when these girls grow up to be stuck-up, demanding, self-centered, hateful creeps who would look down their nose at you in spite of you sticking up for them, maybe you'll get it.


continued.Theresa was having a good day so they felt the need to attack her parenting. Jacqueline was out to get Teresa all day and if Caroline doesn't let it go her head is going to blow because I can see the steam coming out. Take care of your own children and let Gia's mother take care of hers. You both didn't do so great yourself.


Of all the NJ families, Kathy and Rich have the best behaved, brightest, most secure and attractive kids. They have done a great job raising their children who seem very loving, secure and happy. Caroline always boasts about her kids but they don't seem to have any direction, any professional goals, any education. With all their advantages they seem average in every way. And they're tied to mommie's apron strings. Teresa's children are rough, disrespectful and undisciplined. Gia seems unstable and insecure. Jacqueline obviously has issues with Ashley, who's a self pitying blob of a human being. Jacqueline was obviously a very immature mom when Ashley was young, but no excuses for Ashley being a bloodsucking leech.
