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.

In a truly startling turn of events, a member of Bravo's Real Housewives franchise has admitted to going under the knife.

Jacqueline Laurita made the admission last night on Watch What Happens Live, using the interview to discuss her tummy tuck and neck lift and hype the services of Dr. Brent Moelleken.

"When workouts and diets fail to put your body back in order after three kids, is there anything wrong with having a Dr. Brent put you back together again?" she asked on Twitter earlier this year.

"I honestly think it's beautiful when people grow old gracefully. I have no idea why I choose not to. I'll fight gravity with a laser like Luke Skywalker."

Jacqueline Laurita is trouble with the law. Expensive trouble with the law, we should say.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sent a tax lien earlier this year for $338,337.05, although the state Division of Taxation documents don't specify the year in which Laurita racked up this massive sum.

If she doesn't pay the debt in the near future, the state could/will go after Jacqueline's assets.

But, hey, at least she can lean on Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice for comfort. Both those reality stars are in the middle of bankruptcy battles at the moment.

Isn't it nice to know these women are taking such good care of their six-figure paychecks from Bravo each year?

We recap all the screeching accusations and surprising revelations in our THG +/- review.

Teresa & Joe At the Reunion

The Real Housewives husbands arrive and it isn't long before they are all yelling at one another to "shut the f**k up!"  Minus 12. If only any of them would listen.

Pass the Xanax and prepare for another round of madness this Sunday night, as The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunite once again.

The accusations will fly on Part 2 of this franchise's reunion special, especially between Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita.

Real Housewives Tell All!

As previewed by Us Weekly, Giudice turns to her rival on air and spews:

"Didn't he cheat on you a long time ago? That's what you told me... That's why you told me you didn't trust him. That's why he's not allowed to go out."

This just in: everyone hates Teresa Giudice.

Melissa Gorga is officially done with her Real Housewives of New Jersey castmate, and based on the scenes we've watched from this Sunday's reunion special, we can pretty much confirm:

Teresa won't be dining out any time soon with Jacqueline Laurita, either.

Look for the costars to get into it over Laurita's assertion that Giudice had it in for the Gorgas as soon as they were hired by Bravo. She claims Teresa asked her to take her side in a feud against Melissa and her husband.

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?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey's California vacation finally came to an end and it was all "Hot Tub of Sour Grapes" as Caroline and Teresa went at it.

We break down all the face grabbing fun in THG's +/- recap ...

Caroline Points Fingers

When Teresa left Kathy out of her toast last week, was it an unintentional slight or a purposeful shun. In the end it doesn't matter as Kathy turns the focus onto someone else.

Instead of dealing with her own issues, Kathy throws Caroline under the bus.  Minus 12.  Of course she swears she has the best of intentions but is Kathy really that naive?

With everyone listening in on Teresa and Kathy's conversation, am I the only one who hoped that Caroline really would walk over and dunk Teresa's head in the hot tub?  Plus 15.  That could have been awesome but unfortunately we never got to see it.

Jacqueline Laurita of The Real Housewives of New Jersey makes a difficult admission in the latest People Magazine:

Her three-year old son has been diagnosed as Autistic.

The reality star says Nicholas began regressing with his speech patterns and motor skills around 18 months and "we had no idea what was going on."

But doctors soon made the diagnosis and Laurita and husband Chris have been dealing with the mental health issue ever since.

"I worry about him being independent when he's older," says Jacqueline, who is also the mother to Ashlee, 21, and C.J., 10. "I spend all my time researching what we can do for him."

Pick up the latest People on Friday for more on the family, including quotes from Chris, who admits: "You never want to think that your child isn't perfectly healthy. We didn't want to believe it was true."
