On Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice stood by husband Joe, even in the face of bankruptcy. Why? She quipped:

"My Jewish friends are all 'I would have divorced him right away!!' But I'm Italian."

Such a statement certainly comes across like the reality star is comparing Jews and Italians, while painting the former in a negative light. But Teresa has taken to her blog to explain why this was never her intention.

On The Real Housewives

"I was trying to explain myself without calling anyone out specifically, and the way I described them to keep them anonymous was 'Jewish," Giudice wrote. "They are Jewish, but being Jewish has nothing to do with why they would have left Joe. Their religion had nothing to do with the story, I was just trying to explain myself and not use anyone's name, and my words got all jumbled. I'm so sorry if I offended anyone."

Are you buying it? Do you think Teresa's quip was inappropriate?

Belly up, man up, pay up. The Real Housewives of New Jersey picks up right where it left off and we'll recap it right here in THG's +/- review!

The family feud continues as Ashley's parents try and talk sense into her. Unfortunately, Jacqueline can't hold it together. She's a sobbing mess and won't hear Ashley's apology. Not that it would have meant anything. Ashley admits the only reason she was there is her father pushing her. Minus 5 for the whole thing being such a disaster.

Poooooor Ashley

Daddy tells Ashley she's done nothing but party her ass off and it's time to grow up. Plus 7 for saying it but does it really matter since he's headed back to Texas?

Ashley says her mom plays the victim but Ash is no slouch in that department herself. They both end up whining and crying and yelling at one another and nothing is truly accomplished. Minus 10 for such a waste of everyone's time.

On a lighter note, Kathy decides to have a Goddess party for the ladies to show off her catering skills. I have to admit, Kathy seems to have quite a talent. The food looked fantastic. Plus 8.

Everyone is really stepping it up (or at least trying) on The Real Housewives of New Jersey this week. THG recaps it all in our +/- review ...

Teresa's doing photo shoots for her second book and the entire family is involved. Between Joe complaining, Teresa whining, the kids screaming, and the parents looking somewhere between bored and annoyed, it's the photo shoot that just won't end.

The photographers earn a Plus 9 because I'm guessing they had no idea what they were getting themselves into and they still managed some decent shots.

Rich is an idiot. Victoria is 16 and Rich is telling Kathy not to talk to her about sex. Personally I think that shouldn't be one talk but an ongoing conversation and either way it's completely overdo. Rich seems to think that if Kathy talks to her about sex, that will put the idea in the girl's head. Minus 15 for taking naivete way too far.

Then Kathy decides to have said conversation with her daughter in the middle of a store. Oye. Minus another 5 for not making this a private conversation.

And those dresses Victoria's trying on for her junior prom are terrible. They're either too tight, too short, or completely gaudy.

It's New Year's Eve and The Real Housewives of New Jersey are descending on The Brownstone to celebrate. Will they make it to midnight without a brawl?

Let's check it out in THG's +/- review!

Caroline's still doing her radio show and good for her. Her advice is right on the money. You never know what the new year might bring and don't let bitter people affect your goals. She earns a Plus 10 for the positive message.

But not everyone is taking her advice.

Awesome Play Date

Teresa seems determined to be bitter and mean while Melissa keeps throwing out an olive branch. Did you catch some of those digs she took at Melissa?

When Melissa shares that she's working on an album Teresa shoots back that "Nowadays anybody can be a singer." I'll admit there's some truth in the statement but Ouch! Minus 8 because that doesn't sound like someone looking to bury the hatchet.

And Melissa commenting that Teresa is like Ursula looking to steal her voice just popped a picture into my head. I can just see Teresa snatching Melissa's voice and then running through the house gleefully cackling. Plus 7 for the imaginary fun.

Teresa Giudice is scared to be poor.

But the (Un)Real Housewife of New Jersey is not afraid to stir up some controversy when it comes to Dancing with the Stars, challenging the producers on Twitter this week and wondering why she hasn't been cast.

Dancing With the Stars Us Weekly Cover

"Would [love] to but they don't want 'Housewives' this season. But Playmates are OK?"

Teresa Giudice just wants a shot - eh? get it?!? - on Dancing with the Stars.

We'd make a joke here about Giudice's lack of talent, but she's right: the series has featured Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison in past seasons, and it just recently announced the inclusion of Rob Kardashian.

Would you want to see Teresa on DWTS?

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.

Teresa Giudice makes about $250,000 per season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She then rakes in at least that much in endorsement deals and other marketing maneuvers.

But this reality star opens up in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly and admits: she's terrified of being poor. Perhaps she ought to stop going on $60,000 spending sprees in that case. What a spoiled moron.

NJ Housewives

Do you give Teresa Giudice points for being honest? Or want to climb through your computer screen and into this tabloid cover to strangle her for being so insensitive to actual poor people?

It's a Christmas Party at the Gorgas last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and according to Melissa's sister, panties are optional.

Enough said. Let's recap the festivities with THG's +/- review!

We'll start with pre-party planning. It sounds like Joe Guidice has a DUI conviction, then was driving while suspended for the DUI for which he spent 10 days in jail.

He's being sued for fraud and is in the middle of very public and messy bankruptcy proceedings plus other legal issues that haven't been discussed on the show. 

It's a life I wouldn't want to have any part of but Plus 10 for keeping it interesting. 

Tree Topper

Ashley has a birthday with all of her family and friends only the girl can't seem to stop texting. Your friends are sitting right next to you. Who are you texting? Minus 7 for incredibly rude behavior.  At her age, she should know better.

The brand new Jeep Wrangler is Ashley's birthday present. Supposedly she's going to be picking up the $500 a month payments soon. I really wonder if she's being set up to fail with this. 

I doubt her internship pays very much (most don't). I know she lives at home for free but between the car payment, insurance (not cheap in Jersey), plus commuting and fuel costs this could get pricey.

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.
