Hi dolls! This season has really gotten underway! Can’t believe it’s half over already! Here are my thoughts on episode 11:
It was very sweet to see Gia have a day out alone with her uncle. At the young age of twelve, I really believe she has reached the maturity level of someone who is well into her twenties. Being able to speak up to her Xio Joe and express her feelings about a very grown up situation took a lot of courage. There are grown adults who cannot do what she did, and I am very proud of the eloquent young lady she is fast becoming.
I admire the fact that Joe told Gia he was “embarrassed” by his “disgusting” behavior and his inability to “control” himself at times, to quote him directly. He admitted to going on “random rants”, and as someone who was directly affected by this in last season’s finale, I do appreciate that he is now owning it. In my opinion, hearing it from Gia made him realize how much of an effect his behavior has on people. Later in this episode, he goes on to say that when he gets mad he calls everybody names, but “it’s just a name”. I am certain he does not think his sister is “scum”, and deep down I do not believe he thinks I am any of the names he called me last year either. I was pleased to hear that going forward he wants to change, and admitting that is a big step.
Unfortunately, I was away the weekend of the Zumba class for The NephCure Foundation. One of the first scenes we shot this season (that has not aired) was Teresa receiving an award for her work with NephCure. It was such a memorable evening. Teresa is very passionate about raising awareness for this rare kidney disorder that has affected so many, including her close friend Dana’s beautiful son, Matthew, whom the charity was created for. I love Dana and am beyond thrilled that NephCure was featured on last night’s episode. Hopefully everyone who watched will Google the organization and learn a little bit more about what they do to help these sick children. And as an aside, I thought the men danced better than the women! I was very impressed!
I always tell Jacqueline she is way too hard on herself! When she comes into Posche she rocks our clothes, and has the cutest little body you’ve ever seen! However, I believe women should do whatever it takes to make themselves happy, so I support her decision to have the tummy tuck 100%. And she looks beautiful, even though she always did!
In this edition of “Where’s Posche?”, I was so excited to see Richie complimenting Caroline in our Alice + Olivia black and white midi sweater dress! She looked fab! And did anyone notice Teresa’s bling Fabellini hoodie on the bus? That was designed by the company who does my Cuffs by Kim D line and they will all soon be available at Posche with all different designs! Love the crystal wristsbands!
So, next week I’m back! There is a little sneak peek of the Milania Haircare party on Bravotv.com. Some drama definitely unfolds there, so hold onto your hats! And big day at Posche this Wednesday! Teresa will be signing her new cookbook, “Fabulicious On the Grill” from 6:30-9pm! Check outwww.teresagiudice.com for details. We are still having a big summer blowout sale too, so visit our website at www.shopposche.com, or follow us on Instagram @Therealposche. Hope to see some of you!
