The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: A Bald Canary Sings

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are blindsided when "A Bald Canary Sings," or are they? We'll recap who got set up and who set the trap in our THG +/- review.

Let's go back to the beginning.  Melissa's getting ready for yet another meeting with some producer about her singing career. I couldn't care less about her musical future but I'd definitely pair the leopard print shoes with that dress.  Plus 7.

Oh, and if there is a God I will never be subjected to seeing Joe Gorga in a g-string.  I refuse to let my imagination go there.  Minus 12. The mere thought is frightening enough.

Joe Gorga Shows Off

The Manzos visit their boys in Hoboken for brunch and could Caroline make Lindsey feel any more uncomfortable?

First she comes in the door saying that it smells all the way down the hall and before you can wonder if that's a good or bad thing she ask to open a window.  Minus 10.  Well, there's a slap in the face to the cook.

Then Caroline gushes about how far Albie has come.  Now he has his own apartment and a good career but doesn't mention his beautiful, girlfriend whom he's living with and is sitting across the table.  Minus 11.  It was clearly Caroline's way of saying Lindsey is irrelevant in Albie's life without having to actually say it.

At least Chris has a good attitude.  As long as his brother's happy, he's happy.  Plus 15.

Caroline gushes about her kids making it on their own but who is she kidding when they pay the bills with Mommy and Daddy's checkbook. 

Especially Lauren who admits she walked away from her venture with Chateau the day after the grand opening.  Minus 10.  The girl never even tried to make a go of it.

Lauren's all jazzed because she signed the lease on a new place.  More like Mommy did.  And does anyone else thing CaFace is a horrible name?  Minus 8.

Then we're off with Kathy and Rich to see if she can pitch her desserts to a new company.  Why does she insist on bringing her husband along?  Rich can never keep his mouth shut and his sexual innuendos only make Kathy look more unprofessional.  Minus 12.

Oh, and Ashlee shows her face, if only through the computer.  The girl actually looks pretty good.  Somehow she's got a job in PR and has her own apartment.  She even got a new tattoo and didn't her mother look thrilled.

Seriously though, perhaps Ashlee might find her way now that she's not living with her ever coddling parents. Plus 9. Well, that or she might blow herself up.  We'll see.

Now on to the real fun.

Could Kim D. walk off a cliff?  Please? The woman is evil personified and ugly as sin.  The only question is, is she working alone or with an accomplice.

When she called Melissa to make amends I kept thinking it was like the spider calling to invite the fly over for dinner. 

Angelo couldn't have been more sleazy.  Minus 7.  If I had to pick someone out to play the role of a strip club manager it would be him. 

And are we really suppose to believe that he just happened to wait on Kim and Teresa and just happen to mention he knew Melissa as a stripper?  Kim D's cheshire cat smile told the story.  This was a complete set up but was Teresa an innocent bystander or a pawn in the game?

Did Teresa really buy Kim's little, Oops, so sorry?  Could she really be that stupid?  Wait, what am I saying?  This is Teresa I'm talking about, so yeah, it's definitely possible.  Minus 10.

Just when I thought they couldn't have staged a scene better than the spa, we get to the Fashion show where Angelo just happens to show up and makes a point of speaking to Melissa.

Minus 20.  The only thing real about this reality TV show is the script it's written on. 

No matter who Kim D. was working with, she set this up to make sure there was plenty of drama once again at her show in the hopes that the cameras would come back again next year. 

If any of the Housewives had a brain in their head they'd skip this second rate fashion and stay home next year but what are the odds?

Next week it looks like it all hits the fan.  Will you be watching and who is to blame? Kim D, Teresa, or both?



Why are u people always down on caroline
Teressa and her husband are really bad news
Sure she set her sister unlawful up. We didn't get
To see what she and Kim d talked about.
You could tell by her expression when sleeve
Ball walked up. Also. U could tell when in next
Weeks previews she didn't want Melissa to call her
Husband. Wake up America. Teressa does not
Care for anyone else but herself. She may
Be the star but only in her own mind. Terrssa
Shovels dirt but can't take it. Not a very good
Role model for anyone. Teach Italian she
Can't even speak English properly. She's
An idiot.


I love Teresa and yes I love Joe, Giudice....being first generation Italian myself, i understand the family. I agree, the Manzos' ARE like "Olive Garden", such MEDIGANS. Any way, regardless of who shot who, Joe Giuduce is the smartest guy on the show. He knows what Bravo knows....No Teresa...No Show...Take it all to the bank baby....and the rest of you hanger on MERDA. Look that up, Caroline, I'm sure you won't recognize this Italian word.....


I cannot stand Theresa or her husband and kids....they are all getting in my last nerve....then you go throw in Kim D and that bald dirt bag ugh!!!!!! The housewives will be better off without all of them... I live Melissa and who cares what she did years ago....Theresa is walking down a dangerous path if she thinks she and her brother will ever be in a good place after this....shame on you and Jackie get over it with Theresa...with friends like that you don't need enemies.


Teresa is not capable of deriving such a trap for Melissa. Kim "D"evil was the obvious master mind behind this latest scandel. Her "apology" was bogus. Why is she on this show. Do the housewives not have any other shop to purchse tacky, sparkle clothing? Funny how everyone immediately assumed Teresa was the culprit.


And who cares what Melissa did or didn't do ten years ago at some sleazy men's club? This "story line" was so clearly scripted and staged it was laughable. If you ask me, they're ALL in on it for the ratings. I think production needs to get out of this show. If these women are so boring in "real" life that this sort of false shenanigans is necessary, it's time to end the show!


Caroline is fast becoming my least favorite housewife on this show. Her holier-than-thou attitude, while clearly thriving on all the "drama" she professes to abhor, is just getting old. She is completely delusional when it comes to her children...They wouldn't last a New York minute without Mama and Papa Manzo and their pocketbook. Spoiled, immature, and completely tied to the dysfunctional apron strings. Disgusting.


Well, I think Theresa was in on this. I think she planned it with Kim. You know, since they're in front of the camera, make it look like Theresa is not at fault so she could hurt Melissa and make it seem as though she really didn't have anything to do with it. I did see a quick little smile on Theresa while this played out while getting their make-up done. Wow, never have seen such meanness and jealousy.


baby d***


People need to boycott Kim's gossip snake pit of a business!


CaFace would only work if it were spelled like CaFéce, except that CaFéce looks like CaFeces.
