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 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.

Phew. We can all breathe a major sigh of relief:

Caroline Manzo will return next season to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Manzo, Caroline

With rumors swirling around this reality TV star - might she depart the series that made her famous? - Melissa Gorga spoke to In Touch Weekly and made it as clear as possible:

"Caroline is returning,” she told the tabloid. "Okay, there you go. Caroline is back and so is Kathy."

Hooray... we suppose.

Along with the Manzos, viewers can reportedly expect a villainous return to the program next season as well. Yes, Danielle Staub is on her way back.

Set your DVR accordingly. And consider yourself warned.

If you thought The Real Housewives of New Jersey yelled during the regular season, you haven't heard anything yet.

"Reunion Part Two" had so much finger pointing, name calling and out and out screaming that I thought I might go deaf. We break it all down in our THG +/- review.

Rosie Joins The Houswives

First we'll start with the tirade coming from Rosie. "I will rip her f**king head off" and "I'll f**king kill her" were just some of the things heard being bellowed from back stage. Minus 12. Teresa really brings out the best in people, doesn't she?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey opens with its first of three "Reunion" shows and Andy needs a whip and a chair to keep these women from tearing one another apart.  We'll recap how the claws come out in our THG +/- review.

The Housewives haven't been in the same room together since the fateful night before last year's reunion when the Posche fashion show episode was filmed.

The Jersey Housewives Are Reunited

Since then Teresa has sold yet another cookbook. That's three so far and they are all New York Times best sellers.  Minus 10.  Who are you people buying these things and why?

It's the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and it's a "Strip Down Memory Lane" but whose memory is telling the truth?  We recap all of the lies, spies, and hidden texting in our THG +/- review!

Teresa Confronts Melissa

Angelo, the former strip club manager now supposed spa owner is back and not only is this guy sleazy, he's a horrible actor.  Minus 10.

I love Kathy's reaction to the guy.  She thinks he's just some sleazeball hitting on Melissa.  Well, she's half right. Then she rolls her eyes when she quips, "We're all married here.  Move along."  Plus 8.

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?

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey the "Dinasty of Denial" only grows once everyone returns to Jersey.  We recap the cutest and scariest ways they all try to move forward in our THG +/- review.

It's back to Jersey and back to school for the Gorga and Guidice clans.  As Teresa has to yell and push to get everyone out of bed, Joe Gorga's making delicious looking pancakes for his brood. 

But despite the cute family scene the Gorga's still miss the bus for the first day of first grade.  Still, I've got to give them a Plus 8 for rolling with the punches.  Joe and Melissa both laughed it off, jumped in the car and drove off.  At least they got some fun family photos.

A Gorga Breakfast

Back at the Guidice home, Joe's comparing cousin Kathy to a frog and making fun of Caroline's hair.  Teresa gushes about how her husband is "really, really, smart."  Wow.  That's just scary.  Minus 10.
