It's still Christmas in Jersey and we get to spend the festive morning with all the families. Who has the Christmas spirit and whose can use a little work?

Let's run it down in THG's +/- review:

Why can't Teresa stop causing trouble? It's only been a few weeks since she and her brother started speaking again. Having them show up for Christmas Eve is a big deal considering where their relationship was just a short time ago.

Joey G

But Teresa can't let it be. When she hears the Gorgas are heading over to Kathy's she can't hold her tongue. She even tries to use the kids to make her point. Minus 10 for such a lack of manners.

I can't believe I'm saying this but Joe Gorga's was the voice of reason. He explains that they had already accepted Kathy's invitation so they felt obligated to attend both parties. 

Joe's calm and thoughtful and tries to make peace. Plus 10 and can someone please help me up off the floor. I think I fainted from the shock. Realistically though, I won't be surprised if he does something next week that makes me take those points right back.

Christmas got out of control in Jersey Sunday night, but was anyone really surprised? Let's run down all the festivities in THG's +/- review.

We picked up where we left off last week at the Gorgas. Melissa and Joe took pictures of the toys that were brought for the children's hospital.

They're proud but honestly, considering the crowd, that wasn't a lot of toys. Certainly not fifty grand worth. Minus 7 for making it out to be more than it was. 

Teresa and Melissa

I really wonder if the charity aspect was just a creative way to try and write off their excessive party on their taxes.

The party quickly turned into the Kim G show because no one knew how to ignore the woman. 

First off, Kim let her friend Monica get escorted from the party but remained behind. Talk about rude. She brought Monica to the party. She should have left with her. Obviously being seen in front of the cameras was more important than being a good friend. Minus 8.

Kim brought her own bodyguards to the party. Well, if you're looking to cause trouble, it's best to bring your own backup, even if you have to hire them. Plus 6 for thinking ahead.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back and hosting their very guido Christmas. Let's see what the holiday spirit brings with THG's +/- recap!

Caroline's daughter Lauren is in a bit of a funk or as Caroline says, she's in full on bitch mode. Apparently poor Lauren is feeling left out. Her big brothers have moved away and she's got no one left to play with.

Seriously though, her brothers are nice enough to give her a key to their place and she still whines. Minus 7. Time to grow up. Your brothers are older. They have their own lives. You're not 16. Get over it and find one of your own.

Gorga, M

I have to say that as odd as it seems, that green feathered Christmas tree is really growing on me. Plus 5 for being original, funky, and festive.

So is Melissa Gorga the next Beyonce? Oh God. Minus 10 for having to sit through yet another singing housewife. It looks like everyone wants to be a pop star.

Joe's hackles go up the moment he hears she may have to spend long hours in the studio. Yes, Joe. Real singers actually put a great deal of time and effort into their craft. 

But Joe and Melissa have the solution. I almost choked on my drink when Melissa gushed, "Oh Joe, I need a studio in the house." Minus another 5.

Danielle Staub may be gone, but the drama will still be boiling over every week on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The series returns on May 16 with a special 90-minute episode, during which viewers will meet two new cast members, both with connections to Teresa Giudice: Melissa Gorga is the her sister-in-law, while Kathy Wakile is Teresa's cousin.

Bravo has released the first promotional shots of these new stars.

Wakile (right) is married with two children. Her official Bravo profile makes no secret that this is a woman "who loves to party and have a good time."

Gorga, meanwhile, has three kids and is married to a successful real estate developer. You won't believe this, but she does not get along with Giudice at all. Why would Bravo possibly cast her on the show in that case?!?
