REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY… Season Four, Episode Nine… “Public Display of Rejection”  

Recap… by Sandi Duffy

Caroline’s Dog has a peace sign collar.  Ironic much?

Chris rehashed the whole Teresa argument with Lauren, Chris, Albie and Greggy.

                       Da Manzoids and BGG… their normal day.

WTH is BigGayGreggy doing there?  OK, WTH is the Manzo clan doing there, while we’re on the subject?  And Chris Laurita, stop with the TTC (talkin’ to da camera).  You are not a housewife.

                    Chris Laurita… “We’re goin’ to Napa ’cause it start with “N”, just like New Jersey… datz da only reason…”

Chris is talking about unviting Joe and Teresa to Napa. I can’t imagine why Joe and Teresa would want to go to Napa with that crew, but I guess Bravo is making them.  On a more personal note,  I just unvited my sister-in-law to Vegas because I need her to watch my kids.  She was totally OK with it.  See, I actually get along with my sister-in-law and both my brothers.

Jacqueline is either fake crying or having an asthma attack behind closed doors over the end of her friendship with Teresa.  I’m not really sure 1.) why she’s upset and 2.) why she ended the friendship…because Teresa is talking to magazines about her own problems that have nothing at all to do with Jacqueline and her family?  I really couldn’t care less if one of my friends was talking to magazines about her problems.

Joe and Teresa then rehash the argument.  I am sick of their argument.  It was stupid, and much like I can’t figure out the feud between Teresa and her brother, I can’t figure out why Jacqueline is mad at Teresa.

Teresa calls her cousin Kathy to meet for breakfast or lunch.

That should go really well.  Kathy arrives for the meeting wearing a hideous dress and I can’t figure out what the hell Teresa is wearing.  Teresa rehashes her fight with Jacqueline and Caroline.  Kathy decides that she doesn’t want to ruin her relationship with Caroline and Jacqueline by siding with Teresa…you know because she’s been such good friends with them for all of one and a half seasons of this show, but has known Teresa all her life.  Teresa really needs to rethink her friends and clean house.

            Melissa Gorga… “Hey, Ryan… can you see me?  I got all ‘on display’ just to talk witchu for ten seconds!!!”
Melissa is putting her troughful of make-up on because she is having a phone interview with Ryan Seacrest.  Her song, “On Display” is debuting on his show.  When did this happen and how did I miss it?  It’s no “Tardy for the Party.”

Teresa decides to go to therapy with her brother.  Joe reveals that when he was 11 the school tried to send him to therapy.  Why am I not the least bit surprised ?  Teresa is going to therapy with her brother because they are having trouble communicating.  They are having trouble communicating because they are both idiots who barely have a command of the English language.

JuicyJoe gives Tree his blessing… to see the therapist with Tree’s SISTER.  NOTE: Watch for MissAndy to force another apology outta Juicy for this!

Melissa is reading her Twitter on the way to her launch party where everyone is saying how much “On Display” sucks.  The truth hurts, Melissa.  I mean I’d rather go clean the puke out of my minivan after my son vomited Thai food in it tonight, than listen to Melissa sing  “On Display.”

            Caroline Manzo, lil Albie Manzo… “We don’t need your Dad to croak, you’re already da man of MY house…”

At Melissa’s launch party, I’m wondering if Bravo paid people to come because the place is packed and I can’t imagine more than four people care about Melissa’s song.  Caroline is wearing the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen and hanging all over her favorite child, Albie.

                                Thanks, SH reader, “HousewifeHoe”!!!… Never gets old…

I take it back.  Jacqueline is wearing the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen.  Kathy is sitting with Caroline and Teresa, kissing their asses, and Melissa looks like a stripper.

                 Kathy Wakile, Caro Manzoid, Jax Laurita… “To the ugliest dressed women in this crap hole…”

Teresa comes in, kisses her cousin Kathy, and blows off Jacqueline.  Jacqueline is actually hurt by this.  What did she expect?

Teresa finds her brother and tells him she will go to therapy with him.

                        Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice… “Youz goin’ to da tearapist wit me… Bravo’s makin’ us. Dey are payin’ us, soz we gotta do it…”

I just realized that Richie Wakile hasn’t been in this episode yet.  Small miracles.  Whoever is doing Teresa’s make-up needs to ease up on the eye shadow.

 Teresa Giudice… Oh, the eyeshadow is even worse than this!!

Rosie shows up and seems loaded.  With Bravo’s whole gay agenda on this show, I want to say that I attended the Gay Pride Parade today in New York City and didn’t see Greggy or Rosie there.   (Note:  BGG was at the WeHo Gay Festivities in LA.  Don’t know and don’t care where Rosie was…)

              Melissa Gorga… “HEY!  I’m on display!!!”

I now have decided I need to ignore Jacqueline whining to the camera.  She pisses me off.  I can’t figure out why she is mad at Teresa.  I am done with her, the way Caroline is done with Teresa.

 CaroManzoid… “I’m done witchu, Tree…”

Chris and Albie imitate Jacqueline and Teresa having a conversation, and I have to admit, it’s pretty hilarious.  When Teresa and Jacqueline actually have a conversation, I realize that Chris and Albie nailed it.

Jacqueline is batshit crazy and Teresa is really stupid and listening to crazy argue with stupid is giving me a headache.

                       Jax Laurita… “Help me out here… I got no storyline…”

Caroline has the audacity to discuss Teresa with Joe.  When Joe TTCs I realize there’s something going on with his hair.  I think he has plugs.  It remind me of Ralph Macchio’s when he was on Dancing with the Stars.

Teresa confronts Melissa about Melissa talking to Danielle two years ago.  Danielle is back without being back.  Are they going to dredge up that book again, Cop without a Badge?  Burn!  Melissa was totally feeding Danielle crap two years ago.  At least she admits it and apologizes for it.

Jacqueline blah blah blahs, but my ears perk up when she says that “Teresa is the only one who can make money” and BINGO–that’s what Jacqueline is pissed about.  Teresa is making money and Jacqueline isn’t.

 If Tree is doing’ all the magz for nuthin’ like she claims , she’s dumber than originally thought!

Caroline is like the Greek chorus in everyone’s ear commenting on everything.

Rosie is a drunken mess and kissing Joe Guidice and wanting peace in the family.

 Richie and Kathy Wakile… This PDA was bad enough.  Watchin’ Rosie slobbering all over everyone is an even worse assault to the eyeballs…

Richie makes an appearance a the end of the episode.  Melissa speculates that Teresa is making peace with her family because she is fighting with her friends.

  1. Yes Debbie, I caught that also. As a matter of fact at the awakening if you look at Caro’s face when she is waiting for Jaq to answer Teresa’s question about if she ever told her not to talk to Melissa and Kathy, Caro is worried. Jaq closes her eyes as if she is thinking real hard, but does not really want to lie. Finally the Don gives up waiting for an answer and says you implied it. I think she made Jaq not attend the reunion because of how she called out Dina about the book and then the abrupt make up hugging with Danielle. I think the breakdown was just another of Caroline’s lies because she did not trust her to stick with the script.


  2. Wouldn’t it be hysterical if Tre and her brother found a therapist that did their sessions in Italiain. All that yelling and talking really fast and no one would understand anything, then it’s over they hug. Therapy success!!!


  3. Here is my take on the whole thing this whole making up thing with the gorgas, guidices and wakiles is a load of bukllshit.
    Once Teresa realized that bat shit phony whining ass Jacqueline and Don know it all Manzo had jumped ship she had to think quickly, if she is fighting with everyone who is she going to film with?
    Let’s face it the Gorgas and Wakiles have no story line without Teresa so Hey lets go to therapy and film that.
    If anything Crazy Jacqueline and Don Caroline better watch out what will their storyline be three lazy assed overgrown adults mooching around, Teresa really is the show good or bad, Melissa the jealous bitch that she is even said at the screening party “This is turning into the Teresa show” she wanted to focus to be on her and her stupid song.
    Caroline and Jacqueline need to get a life, also Jacqueline’s husband Chris needs to stay the hell out of it. I love me some Joe Guidice he couldn’t give a rat’s ass and neither should he Teresa should cut her losses and move on Jacqueline’s whole argument is stupid and so is Caroline’s.


    • Chris laurita is bored he doesn’t have a job so he hangs around the house eavesdropping on his wife’s conversations.


  4. Che- that would not only be hysterical, that would kill Caroline to not know what was being said. Well, Tre did say her father said he would do it.


  5. Last night’s episode was like a trainwreck…you can’t help but watch it even though it’s horrific!
    I want to know why Jac has to roll her eyes back into her head like the LA Dodger pitcher from the 80’s (Valenzuela) or a lizard)…good grief, that was driving me nuts. I’m wondering if she’s listening to the “voices” in her head or something.

    Did any of you catch that add during a commercial break for a movie that DonCaro was giving her opinion on about fambly? I about pucked! She talked about love, honesty, forgiveness, everyone makes mistakes, BLECH! How about walkin’ the walk there, Frown the Clown?

    I said this on another post but I was cracking up during WWHL when Andy proclaimed the night as a “free drink” night while Jac is hosting! HAHAHAHA! Freudian slip?

    ITA with this post about the real truth finally came out why Jac is upset with Tre and its “She thinks she’s the only one allowed to make money”……No, she’s the only one being asked or being proactive. Nobody gets anywhere in life by sulking & having a pity party like the Laurita’s/Manzos/Gorgas do.

    Is Jac preggers, on antidpressants or is that a liquid weight gain? Man! She looks so puffy in her talking heads!


    • Jac looks simply Terrible.. Does she have a waist? From her boobs to her ass, it’s straight big belly.. Weird ass.


  6. My personal opinion (my conspiracy theory) is that during this week;s episode and last week’s episode, this feigned “concern” for Teresa’s financial situation was cooked up by the other women so they could look like they really care, but actually are notifying the viewers that the Giudices declared bankruptcy and then made all kinds of improvements to their home, and keep spending like they always did. Case in point: Melissa talked about how she isn’t worried about Teresa at all because she seems fine, and her house and yard look great after all the improvements that they did, and she’s just so darn happy for her. Jacqueline talked about all the things the Giudices had done to their home, all the expensive improvements, so they must be fine. Caroline’s parting shot: Nice bag. Jac’s specific remark about them being $11,000,000 in debt. (Some of these things i did know, but i didn’t know about the home improvements, and that does make Tre and Joe LOOK bad, like they are screwing their creditors and still get to live the high life). So Jacqueline invited her over and acted all concerned, but she was doing it for the cameras and for US, and possibly for the bankruptcy court. They want us to judge Teresa harshly and force her the hell off that show. Public opinion really matters on these shows (right, Jill? Kelly? Alex? Danielle?). When Caroline showed up and got all tuff guy on her in that guido voice, i immediately thought “oh, she’s under the mistaken impression that people still think she’s the voice of reason”, like when she had that “meeting” with Danielle a couple of years ago.

    PS did you see Joe Gorga’s face when Tre told him she will go to therapy with him? He just stared at her like he had no idea who she was.


    • good theory….the seasons were filmed back to back so makes sense that Don Caro was still on her high horse….its just comical now to watch/listen to her talking heads because she is so hypocritical that is hysterical! I’ve said before that I think part of the reason Jac is so upset is that reading about Tre going to jail made her freak out about her own situation as well.


        • Did anyone else catch at the end of WWHLl last night(the on air portion) Jax was yelling “when that fight was over we went to our familys. Caroline went home to her husband, I went to my husband and Teresa went and complained about us to our family!” I guess she means Teresa called Dina and told on them!! lol


            • I agree about Jax freaken out. 18 USC 151-57 covers the criminal statutes used to indict for bankrutpcy fraud. What is most importan is knowledge and intent. Did the Laurita defendants have the knowledge and intent to convert Signature Apparel assets to personal assets? If yes, there may be jail time.

              Did Teresa have the intent of defrauding her creditors when she signed the contract and received the $250,000 book advance after filing for bankruptcy? If she did, that’s bankruptcy fraud. If she did not understand that the failure to report potential new income was bankruptcy fraud, she is not guilty of fraud. Her plan would have to be amended to account for new income (which is now sizeable since she had sold 3 books, launched a wine brand and sells various clothing items and makes product endorsements).

              Jax is afraid for the Lauritas – personal trips, cars, etc – the bankruptcy trustee has the proof. Over 7 million dollars converted. Bye-bye Franklin Lakes.


            • Haha, love love love Love NJ for Federal citation. Muah baabeeee! I haven’t checked in forever, but I thought the Giudice Petition was amended shortly after the Trustee pointed out about the advance.

              How interesting that Jax thru out the 11 million in debt but conveniently forgot to mention the 7 million of her family’s debt. Here’s the diff, the 11 million included real estate holdings and I’m not sure how much of that has already been liquidated to reduce the Giudice debt (no way to tell since the Bankruptcy has been pulled, but since no one new has sued the Giudices or related businesses it is safe to say they are paying it down). On the other hand the 7 million debt is based upon funds that have been funneled out of the company for the Lauritas’ private use.


            • I know 2 of Juicys buildings were foreclosed on last month i think it was.
              I hope she is paying down the debt it is the right thing to do.


            • What town were those in Lisa? I know the Edgewater, NJ condos he built were sold for a major reduction. They were originally priced at half a million and then sold at around $280K.


            • I dunno I just read a blip it was commercial property though not condos, You are right I do think they did sell some as well.

              I do look forward to seeing how the Lauritas bankruptcy goes so we can rag on them


            • read Teresa’s second blog she said the majority of the properties were sold and they settled with the banks. She also said some properties are still in the market…not too sure?


    • haha, so right about the ummpa lumpa, yeah now he really has to go to therapy. That’s going to go over big with his buddies.


    • Sue on WWHL Jacqueline said that her speaking with Teresa on the deck was her way of giving Teresa a chance of explaining herself to the viewers!! So I think that you are right on with your theory.


  7. Bravo was basically making fun of the stupidity of it’s viewers by showing that scene of the Manzo boys trash talking the women’s argument. I was infuriated that they included it and thought we’d find it ‘cute.” I watch this show to see the women’s interactions. I hate those worthless, jobless puke offspring of the Manzo’z and I want them off this show. I don’t care about any of their stupid grown children wasting my time.


  8. Those Manzo’s are vile. Caroline has raised her kids to be disrespectful, jealous and spiteful and let’s not forget lazy. Do any of them work. They should take lessons from Teresa on work ethic. She could give them a lesson or two


    • I love when Chuckie the Clown judges Gia (like she did Danielle’s kids) saying they are sad, but she doesn’t see bitter Lauren or her scary mommy dependent boys.


  9. if you look back to the scene where Teresa and her husband are in their home discussing her brother and therapy, if you listen to how she is speaking you will notice she wants go to therapy with her brother, but at the same time does not want to go against her husband. she says she wants to go to therapy to HELP joe Gorga cuz he may have a problem ect.. you can see her trying to talk fast to her husband so that he sees it as her helping her brother. Alot of *old school* women never go against their husbnads which is what i see as T trying to get her her husband to approve. Look closely… when Juicy gives her his blessing to go with her husband to therapy, her face lights up. its priceless. THAT Kathy Wakile, is respect


    • The lack of knowledge and the old labels that came with seeing a shrink still exist today.

      A mediator therapist would be a big help for Teresa and her brother, but it should have been kept behind closed doors for only them…not tv viewing.
