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.

Manzo, C.

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.
