Well, hello Loveys!
Y’all know I couldn’t let the season of RHONj pass all the way to the reunion and not throw my 2 cents in there! It’s been a long ride for the housewives, and for us. Does anyone feel, however that we just watched the last few seasons all over again, but with different costume changes? I feel like we have watched the same cast, having the same fights, the same conversations, and the same drama, at the same damned party, no less. Yet some people still care! Boy do they care a lot too. People are all sided up like we are fighting a real war here! Regardless of where you stand, we all keep watching, and waiting. For what, exactly, I’m not sure.
Personally? I am so OVER the war between Teresa and Melissa. They really are quite similar. Most of the time when you dislike someone, it’s because they mirror something about yourself you don’t like. When this came up at the reunion, they both got the same stink face about it too. Look ladies, we get it. T is hellajealous that JoeyG isn’t all about her, and Melly doesn’t like T infringing on her relationship either. I get it. Those who are saying “she’s out to DESTROY her” about either one of them….Lordy Lordy, you are quite the drama queens! Nobody is DESTROYING anyone, they are talking shit. That’s all. They talk shit, they keep enough dram to hock their wares, and they take home the checks. They signed up for it. The contracts basically say they are selling their good name to the devil for a few bucks….all in the hope of turning their name into something they can attach a sellable item to. AND THEY LOVE IT.
Look, I think we all know this so called “Reality TV” isn’t so much reality. There’s editing, scripting, and all that jazz involved. Yet….I’ll throw opinions on it.
Mel and T. Suck it up, learn to be civil and move on. Stop being jealous divas. Nobody likes a jelly bitch. The sooner you learn to get along, the better, T, learn to apologize and mean it. You said ALL season until the end you had nothing to do with all the bullshit, the. It’s “well, I kinda sorta was mad and I kinda sorta mighta”. If you had said from the get go…”look, I did some shit because I was mad at the time, it was wrong, I won’t do it again, and I’ll prove it to you”, well the respect level would have gone way up. Then again, Andy would be crying in his millions.
Caroline, I have done a turnaround on you over the years, and I enjoy you a lot these days, although the whole “Caroline is only here to offer advice and be the voice of reason” was getting a bit old. I enjoyed seeing you and Al spend some good times together, but I was really bummed to hear of the infidelity. I should have guess it was coming. They always show couples extra lovey like right before they stab you with the “you’re husband’s a cheater” rumors, This whole “I expect he has cheated but I would leave if I knew it for sure” deal is freaking me out. My gut feeling is, if he cheated, you know about it, but I think you have a lot invested in the marriage and family at this point, I’d like to say anyone who gets cheated on should leave, but I guess maybe I could understand why some people stay. Regardless, I love the rapport you have with your kids.
Jac, I can’t imagine what you go through with Nick, it’s nice that you are using our voice to promote autism awareness, but I miss your funny one liners. I’m happy to see your little boy doing well, and that you’ve made peace with T.
Kathy, I felt bad for you at your event when everyone showed up late. Sometimes families take liberties like that, and it sucks. Your kids seem awesome, and totally normal/supportive of you. You’ve done something right with those two! I see T posted a blog (which she then took down, because, well, it’s all about planting the seed) about Victoria dating Johnny the Greek’s nephew. Now, I know my parents never knew any of my teenaged boyfriend’s extended family. Jeez, I rarely introduced my parents to boyfriend’s parents. And even if you do know those two, I don’t care. I’d pretend not to know a hairstylist with a hairpiece that bad too.
Penny. Penny. Penny, Girl, you are a stylist…and what friend of your lied to you and told you that shitty ponytail matched you hair? Somebody lied to you, sister. Oof. You need to take a cue from Jac and hit that person with a stiletto. I must say though, have you all read Penny’s page? It took me a while to figure put who all the characters were, but miss Penny has a “fiction” page where she spills some beans, but in a way Bravo’s lawyers can’t get to her. I found it interesting. It basically confirms the show is mostly bullshit. You can catch it here: http://fauxrealityentertainment.com/penelope-pitstop-fictitious-hw-of-garden-state/
The reunion…well, it seemed like everyone had made nicey nice and now it’s all quivering back towards the same old bullshit. I’m curious about the second half. I don’t know why. It’s probably setting the stage for the same exact show next season. Then again, I’m sure contract time is around the corner, so they have to keep the drama high to end on a cliffhanger for next season. Me? I’m just curious as to how T’s trial will play out. Now that will be interesting.
