Bravo's successful Real Housewives franchise has always aimed to bring high drama to viewers, but the drama is all based on whether the cast members want to bring it.
Unfortunately, the current housewives on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are not working. On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6, Teresa thought she was getting a break from the drama.
However, her vacation was ruined by her daughters continuing to whine at her every single time she spoke to them.
It was painful to watch, but it certainly made me think those kids are sick of having cameras around them. They have been on the show for the entire series, and the recent bad press about their parents has to have had some sort of effect on them.
The producers are trying to implement this whole storyline about Teresa letting the children get away with everything, but it seems more like that's just been thrown in to explain their very blatant hatred of the cameras.
It must be difficult for Teresa because she was gone from their lives for a considerable amount of time, but the kids either need to be left out of the show or be told they need to participate if they are in front of the camera.
Teresa's storyline this week consisted of her trying to get through to her children while trying to have a little fun herself and you could tell she was miserable.
What didn't help was everyone at the resort in Puerto Rico staring into the camera. Maybe Teresa's storyline has just run its course, and it's time to follow some new people.
Back in New Jersey, Siggy went to get pellets to get her hormone levels back on track because she admitted she had something wrong with her.
Hey, it's the first step to recovery, so everyone should be giving her the thumbs up. Her mood has been all over the place, and it's a little bit unethical to have her in front of the reality tv cameras in that manner.
Margaret decided it was time to nip all the feuding in the bud and called Dolores to meet her for lunch. It started off very awkward, and it was clear Dolores wanted to stick up for Siggy.
That's what friends do, and Dolores is coming across as the most loyal woman on this show nowadays. Margaret is a real hoot. She has eyelashes on her mini cooper, so she must be a great person.
For some reason, Margaret opened up about raising her ex-husband's children for several years before they fell out with her for leaving their father.
It seemed forced, but Dolores reacted to the waterworks. The two women found some common ground, and it helped Dolores understand what Margaret was about.
Dolores took the news to Siggy during a double date with Frank and Michael. Initially, Siggy was against being friends with Margaret, but Dolores continued to push the fact that she thought the woman was misunderstood.
Siggy finally decided to give Margaret another chance, but it's difficult to expect the two women to do anything other than fight until the bitter end.
This was hands down the worst episode of the series. There were no big talking points. It was all filler to show off Teresa on her all expenses paid family vacation to Puerto Rico.
Danielle was not even part of the episode. Her voice was in it thanks to a phone call with Teresa, but isn't this woman supposed to be, like, causing all the drama to keep us tuning in?
