The new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered a few weeks ago- and the DRAMA has already started! It’s only the first two episodes of what I hope to be a long season, and there’s literally drama everywhere. If you don’t remember, on the Season 3 Reunion- Jacqueline was missing, Caroline said she was so upset with Teresa she refused to be a part of the reunion. Somewhere between the Season 3 finale and the taping of the new season- something happened with everyone and Theresa that made everyone despise her.
Caroline could barely look at her, Melissa was just over the entire situation, and Kathy just continued disliking her like she always does. They didn’t really say what Teresa did, I guess it was something that she sad, or a few things that she said. We do know that in her cookbook she writes some nasty things about Caroline’s kids, and insults her brother and Melissa. She claims they were just jokes- and they were harmless but what’s the point of putting them into your cookbook? Obviously, she knows her book will sell more if she talks about the housewives- so she wrote those things to get attention…she just uses anyway to make money. Which I guess is understandable when your husband is a deadbeat dad and doesn’t have a job…and is possibly going to jail.
Anyways, the season starts out with a glimpse into the reunion and then it takes up back 4 months to the summer in New Jersey and everyone’s getting ready to go to the Jersey Shore. Apparently, the Shore isn’t just for drunken tanned meat heads…it’s also for families and their grandparents. Joe and Melissa have a cute place of their own down at the Shore but it isn’t quite ready because Joe was doing some construction…on their bedroom (Soundproofing?) not sure if he was joking…considering it’s Joe he was probably dead serious.
Kathy and Rich have the cutest place on earth, a small cottage that had to house literally everyone since Joe’s place wasn’t ready just yet. And finally, Joe and Teresa’s place that looked terrible- and it wasn’t even under construction. Joe brings this huge tarp thing, and when one of the girls goes to unwrap it there’s like 10 mice living inside of it and they’ve chewed their way through the tarp! It was disgusting- I was traumatized.
Jacqueline and Chris are still dealing with a troubled 20-yr old who doesn’t know where she’s going in life-so they decide to ship her off to Vegas to live with some relatives. Albie drives Ashley to the airport, when he’s on his way home she calls him to tell him she’s missed her flight and can’t leave until the next morning. Lost cause.
Melissa makes a song for Joe, and Teresa keeps doing her thang with the book tour to make some money for the kids and her husband.
