REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY RECAP: Season Four, Episode 21… Reunion Part 1


Season Four, Episode 21… Reunion Part 1

by Sandi Duffy

Much like the housewives, I had to pop a Xanax before recapping this reunion, but don’t worry folks, I have a legal prescription.

Before I start, though, I’d like to clarify a few things.  I have been accused of being Team Teresa in my recaps.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Since season one, I have found all of these women, including Saint Dina and Sociopath Danielle, to be vapid, ignorant, uneducated and just plain mean.  In season one I described the women as the Fat One (Caroline), the Bitchy One (Dina), the Crazy One (Danielle), the Stupid One (Jacqueline) and The Ugly One (Teresa).

I find it disgusting that Teresa and Joe lived way beyond their means and tried to declare bankruptcy in order not to pay other hardworking people.  And I rather enjoy poking fun of Teresa’s butchering of the English language.  The only reason I may sometimes come off a little more on her side than the others on this show is because, while I have clearly stated my reasons for my dislike of her and her husband, I can’t figure out for the life of me why the others dislike her.

Unlike someone like me, who pays my bills, my taxes, doesn’t live beyond my means and expect other people to pay the price for it, and doesn’t lie about where my primary residence is so that I can hold a bogus government job, the rest of these women and their husbands are guilty of all the same things Teresa and her husband are.  So why all the animosity?  And why is everyone ganging up on her?  They all live in glass houses.

Now that I have clarified this, let’s get to the reunion.

So the reunion is taking place at the Borgata in Atlantic City.  I’m heading there on October 20 to see Rick Springfield with one of my BFFs and partner in crime, Lisa. She’s the Sonja to my Ramona.  That’s right folks, there may be skinnydipping, naked spooning and too much booze.  I hope Aviva isn’t going to be there to ruin our buzz.

Kathy has a new nose and had her lips done.  Caroline still doesn’t look like she’s learned how to run a comb through her hair.

Melissa’s hair is lighter.

Jacqueline explains why she didn’t go to the reunion last year.  I still really don’t know exactly why she didn’t go.  Why was Jacqueline is such a bad state of mind?  Why did she have a breakdown?  I mean, seriously, the “set-up” had nothing to do with Jacqueline.  Jacqueline also claims to have recordings and texts that prove Teresa set up Melissa, yet cannot produce them.  Teresa accused Jacqueline of setting her up.  Frankly, I think both these women are way too stupid to set anyone up.  Duh!  BRAVO set everyone up!  I would give up my 403b retirement account to see the lighbulb finally switch on in these moron’s heads and have them all turn on Andy in the reunion.  “Andy, you bastard, you destroyed our family, our friendships and set us all up at the Posche fashions show!”  Now THAT would make great TV.

We get an Ashlee montage.  Why would you send a troubled teen to Vegas?  I’m a gown-ass middle-aged woman and I get into trouble in Vegas.  I can’t imagine what kind of trouble a teen with no judgment can get into.

Jacqueline talks around her bankruptcy issues and instead of answering the questions, she talks about Teresa’s bankruptcy.  I wish someone would bring up Albert Manzo’s lying about his primary residence and collecting government money for a fake job until Governor Christie found out.

The ladies all get into an argument over who’s tweeting what.  Blah, blah, blah.  I have a twitter account, but don’t really use it.

Next we have a Jacqueline montage about trying to get pregnant and then having her son, who has recently been diagnosed with autism.  I hardly think Jacqueline is the appropriate spokesperson for autism.  Caroline and Jacqueline sit on the couch sobbing about Nicholas.  Melissa pretends to wipe tears from her eyes.

Caroline pulls the Christmas pageant dress line on Teresa.  Teresa calls Caroline and old hag.   Hahahahahahahaha!  That’s funny.

Andy asks why Jacqueline decided to reveal her son had autism in a magazine.  Jacqueline claims it was to bring awareness.  Riiiiiigggghhhhtttt!

So far, I don’t think Kathy’s said a word.   Methinks Kathy is too boring and won’t be back for a third season.

After a commercial break we see the ending of Jacqueline and Teresa’s friendship.  I think I finally may have figured out why this friendship ended.  It seems that Jacqueline is pissed that Teresa wasn’t supportive enough when she was trying to get a diagnosis for her son and instead tried to drag Jacqueline into her problems.

Andy reads emails about Caroline and Lauren that are all negative, calling them both bitter, shit-stirrers, bitchy, etc.  Gotta love those viewers.

Ugh, Lauren comes out.  She might look better on the outside, but she’s still ugly inside.  Lauren blames her weight for being such a bitch all season.  Lauren claims to work 3 hours a day.  Yeah, and I have a bridge I’d like to sell in Brooklyn.  Caroline claims to have been as tiny as Melissa when she was younger.  Uh huh!

Teresa calls out Caroline that none of her kids have jobs.  Then she calls out Caroline for having a tummy tuck and still being fat.  Caroline brags that she’s had no botox or fillers and Teresa says she should get them.   Caroline should really get her money back for her tummy tuck.  Then Teresa tells Lauren that some people get the lapband and put the weight back on.  Lauren goes after Teresa’s young children.  Oh no she didn’t.  Even I won’t go after underage children.  Lauren and the Manzo kids are fair game.  They are in their twenties and can make their own decision to be on the show, but how dare Lauren talk about Teresa’s young children…or anyone’s young children.  Like I said, Lauren is still ugly on the inside.

Someone asks what Jacqueline has done to her face.  I can tell you.  Too much filler and botox.  Jacqueline has no facial expressions.  She looks like a mannequin.

Ugh!  We are back to In Touch Magazine.  I guess Teresa apologized to everyone in the magazine.  Who reads that crap?  Melissa accuses Teresa of having a weave.  Teresa accuses Melissa of copying the glitter eye shadow she wore last year.  Wow, these women are petty.  Jacqueline yells at Teresa that this is the crap she would bother her with, while she was dealing with her son and not being supportive.

I am so sick of magazinegate.  Teresa brings up a good point.  These women can name every single magazine article about her.  They want to be her.  That is the first lucid thing I’ve ever heard Teresa say.

We finally get to Kathy.  I forgot she was even there.  This montage is soooooooo booooorrrrriiiiiinnnnng.  I almost forgot how vile her husband is, though.

Kathy and Teresa get into an argument over whose husband is hotter, Richie or Juicy Joe.  I just vomited in my mouth.

                                                                          Paul Nassif… “Hey, Sandi!  Will give you a call!!”

The househusband I really like is Paul Nassif, from RHOBH, and I hear he’s getting divorced.  Hey, Paul, call me.

Oh not she didn’t.  Kathy drags Teresa’s mother into everything and calls her a liar.  Ok, old people and young kids should be off limits.  Hey Kathy, want to pick on my 94-year-old grandma?  THEN Kathy calls Teresa’s father a coward.  Ok, I’m adding sick old people with heart problems to the list.

Pat, I mean Rosie, comes storming out from behind the stage.

That’s it for Part 1.  Part 2 looks like another doozy.  In the immortal words of Ramona Singer, this reunion is giving me diarrhea.

  1. Why does it bother people so much that Tre has supporters???!!! And they are mad because we express it…… I cannot figure that out.

    So what, what do you care. Its a TV show…we can disagree you know. Like its totally impossible for people to have a difference of opinion.


    • Meadow, I have been thinking the same thing for a while. I have never seen fans who support any of the other people being labeled or attacked. Then again unlike the others, Teresa never attacks her haters, while the others do. There must be some connection.


      • Well we have to admit whether you love her or hate her- this NJ housewife, mother of four with no entertainment background I know of has become a night time soap opera social phenomenon unto herself!


      • I agree, I read some of the posts and said to myself hey this is wrong and just got rid of it. Last time I looktd we still have a freedom of speech and I can say what I want. If you don’t like it just click out of it. Thank you


      • I agree…Quit picking on us posters here who have their own opinions and just because they feel Tre is being bullied doesn’t mean they want to be bullied or attacked also… Don’t you feel kind of bullied Antonella when once again someone bitches about someone defending Tre with facts and the truth? Like said I haven’t seen one pro RedheadedSheDevil attacked because they like her. Nor people who like Melcontent,FisheySmellywoman,Lapband , and the the poster person for”Don’t Drink and use Drugs together”.


  2. Riddle me this? Would Teresa cookbooks have been as successful if it weren’t for the insults about Caroline and crew(family)?


  3. What Kathy should have said was Teresa stop lying and leave your mother out of this, your mother never said I was divorcing and Teresa would have sworn on her children’s life because that’s what they all do. Kathy then should have said bring your mother out here so she can say it to my face. Teresa would have had bewildered look on her face and that would have been the end of the discussion.
    Btw, I only watched the last 10 minutes when Rosie went off like a wild animal backstage and I laughed so hard I was in tears but I feel really bad about laughing at a really unfortunate event/situation. I just hope that Teresa doesn’t act all high and mighty because this is exactly how she has behaved in the past and for the same reason which is someone speaking badly about her family.


    • Once again someone laughs at someones disgusting behavior because that person deserved it and like the rest of the bullies tries to minimize it by saying kind of felt bad about it afterwards. And sure bring out Tres mom so her father who has a bad heart can watch his wife being attacked by another family member who they had taken under their wing when they needed them. Its bad enough they had to watch their children’s relationship go down the toilet because it got someones wife on television and gave her the in she always wanted. Maybe we could have BlowMeJoe bring his dad and out and show him how much of a man his son really is by showing his little dick and maybe have Mel do a lap dance because heaven help us if she sings to him because really don’t think his heart could take much more. Rosie should have never been there and had no right to threaten anyone. Hope you are over feeling “kind of bad” about laughing now.


  4. Nah Laurens still ugly on the outside too but lol on how hard she supposedly tried to lose weight yet every time she was on camera she would be drinking wine and eating cheese pasta or sausage. That clip of her whining to her dad how it’s “not fair” makes my blood boil – not fair is being born in a tent city in Haiti, not being born to a well off family that let’s you freeload and gives you capital to start your own stupid salon. I wonder if she even finished cosmetogy school. And yelling about bullying and “this is why people kill themselves” nice Lauren, compare your petty issues with people that have real problems. Ugh.


  5. I’m just watching this now.

    Why is Lauren the ‘make-up artiste’ wearing highlighter ALL over her face?
    Also why is she wearing a leather mini dress that would look bad on Melissa, for a show that involves sitting on a couch the whole time?


    • Its stuff like that that makes me question whether or not the producers are as Manzoid friendly as we once thought. Clearly someone had to tell her that that was a good look for her all the while laughing at her behind her back.


      • I think Lauren’s just that excited she’s not so big anymore so she wears body revealing outfits. She didn’t consider tv is unforgiving and that she was going to be sitting the entire time.


      • Lol Made. Lauren: “Hey are you sure this doesn’t look bad? My legs are still really big, I can’t breathe, and I am having a hard time walking in these shoes.” Producer: “Oh noooo, you look great! (snicker snicker)”


      • I think if Ashley came out and wasn’t so nasty, she wouldn’t look like a slug in a cocktail dress. (yes I did mean slug, but thug would apply here as well).


  6. & the way everybody is ganging up on Tree reminds me of high school. The way they have all turned against her without any real reason for it, other than the things they are making up.
