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.

In the days leading up to this Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special, the claws have become specially sharp among various cast members. Especially between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice.

The former recently went off on the latter, referring to Teresa as a "wolf in sheep's clothing" and saying Giudice has even turned Caroline's own sister against her.

But that's news to Dina Manzo, a former Housewife. She took to Twitter last night and replied to those who think she has chosen a side in Caroline and Teresa's war of scripted words.

"eww getting some MEAN tweets," she wrote. "I didn't take sides, don't assume~didn't even know they were not getting along until recently~I'm not involved."

It's unclear why anyone would waste a nanosecond of one's time with these people, but view a clip from Sunday's trash talk-filled special NOW.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continue to trade soul-jarring insults. To wit: Teresa Giudice believes Melissa Gorga is the devil, while Jacqueline Laurita labels Teresa as scum.

Now, Carolina Manzo is getting in on the bashing game, going off to Us Weekly about Giudice, who dissed her co-star in her Fabulicious! cookbook, referring her "as Italian as the Olive Garden." That's pretty good, actually.

"Teresa is a wolf in sheep's clothing," Manzo says, adding of her former friendship with Giuidce: "It was all a charade" in Teresa's eyes.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey painted an absurd family portrait on this week's season finale - but they aren't finished yet!

The women will get back together on Sunday night for what Bravo is hyping as the "most dramatic reunion" in show history. Wow. The writers must have been up late penning the script for this one!

Look for it to be highlighted by an exchange between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga in which the former snaps at the latter: “You’re the devil. You’re wearing red.” Watch a sneak peek at the contrived madness below:

It's been a long season for our Real New Jersey Housewives and our season finale is finally here. THG breaks it all down in our + or - review ...

It's family photo time as the Gorgas and the Guidices decide to do a group family portrait with the Gorga's parents. It's a lovely idea and starts us off with a Plus 10

I know the man isn't well but does Poppa Gorga always have to come off as such an old grump. Minus 5. Not much seems to make this man smile.

Melissa Gorga Fashion

Joe tries to make his father feel better by offering him a drink and you've got to love little Gia. "No, no. Drinks don't make him feel better." Plus 7 to the little girl for speaking up.

The kids are adorable. Melissa and her family show up in a sea of leopard print coats. Joe Gorga says he'd love another little girl. He'd name her Jovina, after himself. (Insert eye roll here.) Plus 5 because despite the huge ego, it's almost kind of cute.

In other news, Ashley gets a reprieve. Chris relents and says he can't kick her out. His brother, Jamie comes to visit Ashley and says he loves her but she's lazy.

And I had to laugh at his advice about not telling guys about her Swallow tattoo. Plus 8. So funny. Plus I don't think Chris could have looked more uncomfortable if he tried.

It's a very sad day for all of mankind: Teresa Giudice has dropped out of Twitter.

Following a recent spat with Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Jacqueline Laurita, Giudice made the tragic announcement today on her blog, writing:

"I don't think it's a very healthy place to be right now. (I just can't take anyone who's suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I'm going to slowly slip out of it and maybe take a little break for a while."

Laurita, of course, referred to Teresa as "scum" a couple days ago because she believes her castmate helped spread a rumor that Melissa Gorga once worked as a stripper and... seriously, why would anyone care about this?!?

Bravo is attempting to put The Real Housewives of New Jersey rumor mill to rest.

With chatter surfacing over whether a number of castmates will get the boot - Jacqueline is the leading contender - the network released the following statement today:

Real Housewives of New Jersey Photo

“Bravo is not firing anyone from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. This is completely inaccurate information from sources who are unreliable and making up rumors. All five cast members will be featured on season 4. No decisions have been made about season 5 at this time. We are looking forward to the season 3 finale this Sunday at 10 p.m.”

But what if one of the Housewives quits?!? Or all of them? We can dream, can't we?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continued their Punta Cana vacation this week and THG breaks down their ridiculous adventure in our +/- recap!

Teresa does yet another wardrobe change donning a gold cut out bathing suit resembling a superhero. This entire trip is Teresa's own private fashion show and that might be mildly entertaining if Teresa and Kathy could shut up about their fight. Minus 8 because I'm just as tired of hearing about it as Caroline.

Teresa Giudice Cleavage

Despite that the rest of the crew seem to be getting along quite well. Plus 7. The two Joes try to decide which of them is shorter. When their height appears about even they attempt to up the stakes by whipping it out and seeing who is really the bigger man. Everyone gushes that it's just like the good ole days. Plus 10 for the drunken group hug.

Why can't Joe Gorga keep his pants on?  First he's flashing the Manzo boys when they show up to go golfing. Then he's mooning them on the golf course. Plus 5 for the technology that allows the show to block out the graphic details. No one needs to see that.

Plus 10 to Albert. He's the only real golfer in the bunch and he'll take it as a personal favor if none of these idiots ever sets foot on a golf course again.

Teresa decides her next project will be an Italian / Latin fusion cookbook and she drags the ladies along to a local market. They're all shocked to find that they have to see actual animals at the market, not just pieces of meet under plastic wrap. Minus 3.

Of course the cow heads weren't nearly as disturbing as the fact that Teresa didn't know the difference between semolina and salmonella. Minus 8. I don't think I want Teresa Giudice cooking my food.

Jacqueline Laurita may be exiting The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she's intent on landing a few blows against a castmate before she departs.

In response to a rumor this week that Melissa Gorga formerly worked as a stripper, Laurita has taken to Twitter and implied that Gorga's sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, is behind the chatter.

Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita

"Teresa told me that 'rumor' about Melissa when she first started the show," Laurita Tweeted today. "She wanted her out then. She knew. She plotted it. She played dumb on camera and even defended Melissa."

"Teresa is scum!"

Enjoy Jacqueline Laurita for a few more episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, viewers. They may be the final time you see her on Bravo.

With rumors swirling that this franchise will replace at least one cast member before next summer, Laurita's name has jumped to the top of the list. Why might she be a goner? Consider these recent Tweets from Jacqueline:

Jacqueline Laurita Screen Shot
  • 2b honest.I'm tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn't know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.
  • I can't be part of the Charade anymore.It's unsettling. It's disturbing & against what I stand for. I'm a REAL housewife.

What does Jacqueline Laurita stand for? What qualifies her to be a REAL housewife? It's all very unclear.

But how would you feel if she did not return to the series? That's what we want to know: Do you want to see Jacqueline Laurita come back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
