Teresa and Joe Giudice may be going to jail for a very long time.

But at least they have the support of a few reality stars!

With Teresa Giudice pleading guilty yesterday to multiple fraud counts - and expected to serve at least some time in jail in the near future - multiple members of the Real Housewives franchise have offered words of encouragement to their law-breaking colleague.

Joe and Teresa Giudice Suck

DINA MANZO (on Twitter): "It's all how you look at it...perception is everything. #StayPositive #ChooseLoveNotFear.

Dina Manzo may be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

But in order for Manzo to come back to the series she quit in 2010, the reality star made a demand of producers: Give the boot to Jacqueline Laurita.

  • Dina Manzo and Dog
  • Jacqueline Laurita on Blue Carpet

Jacqueline tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that she's aware of Dina's role in her ousting, dissing her sister-in-law to the tabloid and saying:

“I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show: She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey "Reunion Part 2" got underway with inventive insults and ended with opening old wounds. We recap it all in our THG +/- review.

What do the Housewives regret about this season?

Talk to the Hand
  • Rosie wishes she hadn't told Teresa to "take it up the *ss."
  • Teresa Giudice says she shouldn't have called Jacqueline Laurita evil.
  • Even Juicy Joe says he shouldn't have used names like Josephine, butchy boy, and horsey face.

Plus 20 because how often does anyone admit when they're wrong on this show?

Don't worry. It doesn't last long.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey  "Reunion Part 1" hit our TV screens and I had to wonder how many viewers felt a lot like Juicy Joe this season…

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

We recap all the backstabbing and infidelity in our THG +/- review.

Remember last season's reunion show when these ladies all but swore they'd never live in the same town, never mind share this sofa again. Well, some might have changed zip codes but they all showed up to talk to Andy Cohen this time around. Plus 15.

It's "Salon, Farewell" as The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrap up their season as everyone gathers at the salon. We recap the fighting and scary faces in our THG + or - review.

And what kind of finale would it be without Kim D's scowling face?

What's So Scary?

Apparently the woman who resembles the crypt keeper scares Joe and Teresa Giudice too? Plus 20.

But it's Penny and Teresa who go at it first. Since Penny is claiming Teresa texts her, Teresa wants to see the texts. Plus 12 because for once Teresa makes a perfectly reasonable request. 

Unfortunately Penny tells her, "I don't save my texteses." Or was that I don't save Texas? Minus 18. My Jersey Housewives translator must be on the fritz.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back for another episode and "Hair We Go Again" with the bad hair and worse singing.

We break down the need for a better hair weave and the purple pimp hat in our THG +/- review.

There were so many things that were just bad in this episode, like this outfit of Teresa's...

What Is She Wearing?

I'm not sure we'll have space to share them all. But let's try.

We'll start off with Melissa Gorga. No, her hair is good. It's her singing that needs work. Lots of work. Minus 15 because listening to her vocal exercises was just downright painful.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.

Leave it to The Real Housewives of New Jersey to turn a "Horse Whisper to a Scream." 

Read on as we break down who among the women embraced their vulnerable side and who ended up looking like a horse's a$$ in THG's official +/- recap!

Not the Horse Whisperer

Jersey is still in the house at the Mirval Resort and Spa and it may never be the same again.

But psychic advisors and gong therapy aren't what Melissa envisioned for her birthday.  "I'm done. I want a f**king cocktail by the pool in a bikini." Plus 15. No one can say she's not a girl who knows what she want.

Everyone's still recovering from the ghost whisperer when they all head out to see a horse whisperer.  Funny thing is, Wyatt the equine therapist reads these Jersey housewives and their hubbies like the comic book characters they are. Plus 22.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey head to Arizona with their "Spaghetti Western & Meatballs" indulge in not one…but two cleansing rituals.

Check out all of the dirt in THG's official +/- review.

Go Ahead, Touch It.

Teresa Guidice is riding high. Everything's going well. Cook books, Milania Haircare. Criminal charges…oops. She conveniently forgot that one. Minus 15.

But you know something's wrong when your 12 year old has to edit your fashion sense.

Shouldn't it be the mom putting a ban on skimpy bathing suits, not the other way around?
