The Real Housewives of New Jersey brought us "Everything Is Coming Up Rosie" but is an intervention led by the hot headed cousin really what they need?

We recap both the good advice and the asinine in our THG +/- review.

Rosie's Happy Face

Joe Gorga drives home from the gym still muttering curses at Teresa under his breath.

I'm not sure what he's more upset about, being told he's pussy whipped or finding out that Melissa tweeted something unkind about his sister.

Maybe Melissa isn't the angel he thinks she is.

Melissa's still working on her book, because who doesn't need advice on marriage from a Real Housewife? Plus 10 for talking to her family beforehand about putting her father's philandering past in the book but I wonder if she would have done it anyway even if they objected.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey gave us a confrontation between "Gym Rats." We recap the foul mouthed tirades and insults in THG's +/- review!

Angry Italians

Honestly, if you are buying a book from any of the Real Housewives for marriage advice, you should probably just file the divorce papers now.

Or admit yourself to the nearest asylum because that's just crazy. Minus 22.

Still, I'm sure Melissa Gorga's book on having a happy marriage will sell with words of wisdom from husband Joe like, "The sex is important."

Sort of gives credence to Filomena Guidice's words when she basically says that Melissa dresses like a prostitute. Maybe Joe picks out her clothes.

"It's My Party and I'll Fight if I Want To" shows that no The Real Housewives of New Jersey birthday party is complete without drama, even if the party is for a 12 year old.

We try and make sense of the lies and catty comments in our THG +/- review.

Gia & Teresa

Gia Giudice is turning 12. At 12 I think I had 10 kids at my party. Gia's parents rented a club for 100 people. Does anyone else get the feeling the girl is already smarter than both of her parents? 

Hopefully she doesn't inherit her mother's fashion sense. Purple zebra spandex. Minus 8. Even at the gym that should be unacceptable.

With her birthday looming Joe Giudice takes his little girl out for daddy / daughter time. When he started lecturing the pre-teen on spending more time with her family I groaned. Minus 10.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey had "A Manzo of Her Word" but it was a little boy who stole the show. We recap the smiles and tears in THG's +/- review.

Someone completely stole the show this week and it wasn't a housewife. It wasn't even one of their husbands.

Jacqueline Laurita & Nicholas

It was a little boy who learned to say I love you, Mommy. Plus 50.

To be honest at first it appeared that little Nick was only repeating the words to get the lollipop but when Chris Laurita said that it had been over 18 months since his wife had heard those words from her son, I couldn't help but be moved, no matter what the child's motivation.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off season 5 with a "Garden State of Emergency" - and we've recapped all of the ignorance and attitude in our THG +/- review.

The Housewives return to the Jersey Shore to witness the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Entire neighborhoods are destroyed and as someone who spent summers at the Jersey Shore, it is heartbreaking to witness.



Teresa Looks Confused

Of course, it's a little hard to shed any tears for these women as they tour their once opulent vacation homes. Minus 15. As Caroline points out, there are real people whose only homes got swept away by the storm.

Teresa laments how she could have "drownded" if she'd been there. Plus 10. It's been a long time since I've heard a Teresa-ism.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta hit us with "Reunion Part III" last night and the guys took the stage… well, at least some of them did.

We break down who was missing and which husband was texting someone other than his wife in THG's official RHOA +/- recap!

Twirl

The Househusbands arrived to back up their ladies. Well, some of them did. Walter and Kordell were noticeably absent but their presence was certainly felt.

But first, a big Plus 50 to NeNe and Kim Zolciak for finally acting like adults and burying the hatchet. We don't see that much on this show and it should be applauded.

Now back to our regular Housewives lunacy...

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 2 started out low down and dirty but ended on a surprising high note. Relive the egos, shadiness, and shocking reconciliations in THG's +/- recap!

Kim's Hair

So why did NeNe Leakes seem so rational this season? She says that in the past she hated having to watch her own craziness on camera week in and week out so now she tries to stay neutral.  Plus 30.  She may not always pull it off but I applaud the initiative.

NeNe claims that last season the other ladies were spreading lies and gossip about her that hurt her relationship with Gregg… ilke Phaedra Parks pulling Marlo into the mix.  

Supposedly Phaedra urged Marlo to come on the show in the hopes of stirring up trouble with the whole Charles Grant rumor.  Minus 18 if it's true, that's just low.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta were back Sunday night for their "Reunion Part 1" and it's all about the shade ... but should it really be about the fan?

We recap all the screeching in our THG +/- review.

Kenya's Fan

What is up with Kenya's fan? Was she expecting the air conditioning to be out? Is she having hot flashes? Minus 15 for taking this Gone With the Wind thing a little too far.

Plus 18 to Kandi, who asked, "Girl, can you flick that thing with your left hand?" Kandi looked as though she'd had enough of not only Kenya's fan but the entire reunion.

I think the girl is ready to move on to her spinoff. Apparently every Housewife wants one.

It's The Real Housewives Beverly Hills and if one reunion show is good then "Reunion Part II" must be… pure torture. At least that's what it feels like.

We recap all the tears and tantrums in our THG +/- review.

The Sisters Clash

We're back on the couch with Andy Cohen as the ladies dished about Kim Richard's sobriety and whether or not they suspected she fell off the wagon.

The clips of some of Kyle's comments throughout the season were at times cringe worthy. Minus 10.

Always one to speak her mind, Brandi Glanville admitted that she felt Kyle was always doubting her sister and almost felt like "it would make her happy if she failed."  

Let the waterworks begin.

It's the season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and "Divas Into Focus" throws us a party where it's hard to tell who's coming and who's going.

We recap all the divorces and diamond rings in our THG +/- review.

Before we jump into Kenya Moore's party, or is it a gala?  Does anyone know what the heck is difference? Let's check in with the other Housewives first.

Kenya Gets Foxy

Phaedra Parks drags Kandi Burruss to check out her next venture. Pretty pink stun guns called Phaedra Sparks. Seriously. That's it. Minus 15.

Supposedly Phaedra is a lawyer, a wannabe funeral director, and a wannabe fitness video producer, and now she wants to throw her name on a taser.
