The Real Housewives of New Jersey gives us "Scum One, Scum All" as the team builders run for cover. We recap all the therapy and mysterious black tar in our THG +/- review.

We pick up right where we left off with Joe Gorga calling sister Teresa Giudice scum. Minus 20. That really was out of line.


Sexy Time

Then Tre runs out to Juicy Joe who storms in looking for a fight but before he gets halfway there, Gorga charges him like a bull in a pasture.

Minus 30 because I can't tell what there's more of in that room, testosterone or stupidity.

Ugly fights are a standard on The Real Housewives of New Jersey but "When Joes Collide" might just deliver the knock out punch. We recap why everyone should just retreat in our THG +/- review.

The Gorgas, Giudices, and Wakiles head to upstate New York for a team building / conflict resolution retreat. What could possibly go wrong?

On Her Knees


Yes folks, that's a joke, because this thing never even stood a chance. But let's start with who bailed before it even got started.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey found Melissa Gorga unknowingly "Drinking With the Enemy". We recap the liars, cheaters, and so-called friends in our THG +/- review

It all starts out innocent enough. Kathy's cooking in her test kitchen and Rosie's recounting how she had to pull her cartilage back into place after her meeting with Teresa.

Minus 10. Did we really need to hear about that?

Crazy Train to Jersey



Then Rosie shares Teresa's idea of a retreat between the Guidices and Gorgas and invites the others along.

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.

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 3, we finally learn who really worked as a stripper in college and so much more.

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.

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?
