NOTE:  Kinda amazing dat DonCaro is takin’ the time out to write ANYTHING… she should be scouring the intrawebby for her friends!


Hello and happy Sunday! Summer is officially over, everyone is in work mode, the kids are back to school, and fall is in the air. I love it!

We’re finally back from Arizona, and everyone is getting back to work. Teresa has a new food line, Melissa took her singing career to another level, Kathy’s cannoli make their way into New York City, and Jacqueline conquers her fear of public speaking while raising Autism awareness. As for me, all you got to see was me suffering from another migraine. One of these days I hope to finally be rid of them! I’ve had them since I was eight years old. I think I deserve to be migraine free at this point in my life, keeping my fingers crossed.   NOTE:  DonCaro is a dolt.  Imitrex now comes in pill form.  However, it is important to find the reason for the migraines… and DonCaro simply follows those reasons around!

I enjoyed watching all of the husbands support their wives in their endeavors. They were cute, weren’t they? Joe Giudice proudly showed the two mom’s Teresa’s showroom, Joe Gorga praised Melissa’s talent to her new manager, Richie was running around in circles trying to get Kathy to Dylan’s on time, Chris gave Jacqueline hugs and pep talks right up to the very minute she spoke, and even my Albert made sure I was comfortable with a back rub and an ice pack for my headache. They drive us crazy, but when we need them, they’re right by our sides, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.   NOTE:  Oh, they were so cute… BLEEEECH!!

The conversation between Rosie and Joe was unbelievable. Is it just me or are those two hilarious together? I’m thrilled to know that Rosie took her lessons from Mirival home with her and applied them to her everyday life. Arizona was a life changing experience for her and listening to Rosie tell Joe that she is finally comfortable in her own skin was awesome. Now if someone would just tell them that Joe does not have eggs, all will be right with the world.

All in all I think we finally managed to have a positive episode with everyone moving forward with good intentions. It wasn’t perfect, there were a couple of little bumps, but I’m choosing to ignore them for now. I’ve decided to take the glass is half full approach with this group.

As always, I thank you so much for watching. I’ll see you all next week!

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY Recap: Season Five, Episode Sixteen… “The Blonde Drops A Bombshell” By Sandi Duffy


rhonj cast

Season Five Episode Sixteen “The Blonde Drops A Bombshell”

by Sandi Duffy

Oh thank goodness.  They are done with Arizona.

Teresa is coming out with her own Skinny Italian food line.  I hope it’s better than that slop the Mangos tried peddling from the Brownstone.

Do any of the men on this show actually work besides Al?  They all sit around and talk all the time.

Chris and Jacqueline are milking their autism storyline.  Theft are doing something with that sludge they sell and Jacqueline is going to make a speech.  I wonder who HER ghostwriter is.

Kathy and Richie are doing something, but no one cares, so I’m not even going to bother to recap this part.

The Guidices and Gorgas are all having lunch together minus Father Gorga, who has kidney stones.  I don’t really like the new Joe Guidice, who has somehow been coerced or blackmailed into cooperating with the producer-induced story lines.

Teresa is at Jacqueline’s house to help her with her speech.  That’s like Forest Gump helping Corky from Life Goes On write a speech.

Joe Guidice and Rosie seem like BFFs this season.  I kind of like the Rosie/Joe dynamic, even if they both think that both men and women have eggs.  I think it’s safe to say that no one in this cast is going to find the cure for cancer.

Does Melissa just go around and sing her stupid song everywhere she goes?  How is this no talent getting to meet my boyfriend Justin Timberlakes manager?  Who is Melissa kidding?  She would sell her soul to the devil for a big recording career.

More Kathy and Richie.  I’m going to pee and get a snack.

A songwriter and producer comes to Melissa’s studio with “Justin Timberlakes manager”.  I would like to point out that with the magic of auto tune, I could sound just as bad as Melissa.



More Kathy and Richie.  Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala.

Damnit!  I thought it was going to be a Caroline-free episode, and not only is it NOT Caroline-free episode, but we also get miserable Lauren.

RHONJ Lauren BGG  pg

Teresa takes a shot at Kathy by describing her cannolis as “edible”.

wakile cannoli kit costco

Jacqueline is on her way to her big speech.  She’s really nervous.  She’d probably be less nervous if there was a stripper pole in the room.

The women are idiots trying to play basketball in high heels instead of sneakers.

They only made $3000 at their event.  Hell, my late husbands friends, who aren’t on TV, raise more than that every year in a charity golf outing in my husbands name for pancreatic cancer research.

Joe and Melissa are out to dinner and se Penny out.  Melissa approaches Penny about the rumors.  Penny’s fake hair is horrid.  Penny outs Teresa as the source behind the rumors.

Next week on RHONJ…


Received this comment this morning from “ToAllSHReaders”:

I can confirm 100% that the PRODUCERS had Teresa invite Penny to the Milania Launch Party.

No Drama = No Show.

SH Readers,
Understand something:
• BravoTV and Sirens Media pay a lot of money for filming; you can bet your bottom dollar that everything to their wardrobe is planned.  

• There is a lot of manipulation that goes on as well. When you hear; “I heard this” and a name is not mentioned; it’s production.

I will digress at this point.

NOTE:    Bravo/Sirens/ANY  HWs ProductionCompany manipulating the “reality” of the HWs shows has been raised and discussed years ago on SH… beginning with the RHONJ producers planning “reality” with the cast!  (If you wish to read the expose from TWO years ago, please enter “Jacob Huddleston” in the SH search bar.)  We all know they plan the  phoniness and the manufacturing of story lines on the Bravo HWs franchises!  Ain’t nuthin’ new at SH…  This latest splicin’, dicin’ and throwin’ in voiceovers on the RHONJ is not a story… it’s BOOO-OO-RING.  yawn.

Thank you, “ToAllSHReaders”!!!   Whoever wrote this comment did not want to be identified; however, perhaps SH readers can take a guess as to the author!?

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY Preview: Part III… More About “Abused” BigAl Manzo… RancidRichie Disturbs Guests

Poor DonCaro… another migraine!  What a shame.  Wonder what BigAl would have discussed with HorseGuyWyatt had the cameras not been there.  BigAl tells Caro that his lil Manzoids get involved with “long shots” and “under-capatalized” ventures… Caro throws those truths in da water!  GEE, wonder what “ventures” BigAl was referencing?? RancidRichie says that other Miraval guests “came here to get away from people like us”… RancidRichie is truly puke-worthy.


NOTE:  If those “guests” were not plants… hope Miraval gave them free-for-life visits!
