Episode 11: A Leopard’s Hope to Change his Spots

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!

Episode 10: Friend Mend

Hi dolls! How is everyone doing? I was away in Atlantic City last Sunday, so I got a little behind on my blogging! Here are my thoughts on episode 10:

I love seeing all Teresa’s girls in the kitchen helping their mommy out. They are all so unbelievably sweet and smart and I just love them. Milania couldn’t wait for Antonia to come over! So thrilled the families have patched things up because I truly feel the saddest aspect of the feud was that the cousins could not be together. They picked up right where they left off and their reunion was so heartwarming!

I have to say in general this season all these New Jersey Househusbands certainly do have a way with words, don’t they?! Very interesting choice of phrasing across the board! Won’t go into specifics, but I am sure you all get my drift!

I have really gotten to know Rosie while we were filming this season. I really like her and truly hope she does find the love of her life. She’s a good person and she deserves it!

What is going on with all these private room meetings? First, Danielle and Caroline, then Caroline and Teresa, and now Teresa and Jacqueline! Just something I noticed when a serious conversation is going to take place, it’s always secluded in a restaurant’s private room! I always knew deep down that Teresa and Jacqueline would make up. I am friends with both of them and over the past year they would ask about each other just to check in.  They both have said things about each other that they did not mean.  What I can say is that Teresa is definitely not a sociopath, and Jacqueline is definitely not evil. I believe they never lost that bond they had formed over their entire friendship, even when they were not speaking.

Men are completely different from women in the sense that they can quickly call a truce and brush things under the rug. Women need to take their time to dissect every little thing, and then maybe at the end of the discussion it still doesn’t get resolved. It was nice to see Joe Giudice and Chris cheers their wine glasses to moving forward because they did have a very close friendship at one time.

In conclusion, I always like to end with what I like to call “Where’s Posche?” Jacqueline was wearing our charcoal hearts dress by one of our favorite designers Torn by Ronny Kobo. Also in the meeting with Teresa, she is wearing our Jay Godfrey silk boyfriend blazer in eggplant. She looked beautiful! Both pieces we still have available at Posche as part of our Summer sale!

That’s all for now, and I hope to see some of you at Posche this Wednesday, August 14th as Teresa signs her newest cookbook, “Fabulicious On the Grill” from 6:30-9. We will have a few surprises, and it’s going to be a fabulous evening!

Episode 9: Truce-fully Yours

Hi Dolls! What an emotional roller coaster these past three episodes have taken us all on! Here is my blog for Episode 9:

Let me start out by repeating again how much I absolutely LOVE Dr. V! She is fabulous in so many ways, and how brilliant is she?! What Dr. V was able to accomplish with the Giudices and Gorgas was truly unbelievable.  It was nothing short of a Mexican standoff. She was somehow able to make peace out of a situation everyone thought was irreparable. I have the utmost respect for people who choose to spend their lives helping others. Truly commendable. And she’s so fashionable too!

I would like to state my belief in life is that in a good relationship you do not need to be attached at the hip. Dr. V suggested that Teresa and Joe Gorga should spend time alone and I am in 100% agreement with that statement. Married couples should take a little bit of time apart now and then. It is healthy for both people. And I do not feel Teresa should be apologizing anymore! Enough is enough, it’s time to move forward.

Rosie is a good-hearted soul. I felt bad for her sitting at the table because it was clear she really just wanted everyone to make up. Her family means a lot to her and it shows. As always she provided the much needed comic relief on the trip!

I thought it was so cute to see Melissa get a little buzzed and let her hair down! I definitely would’ve been right there with her in the kitchen watching everyone else cook while downing a few Grey Gooses, worrying more about my eyelashes being singed by the flames!

It was so sweet to see Joe Giudice’s sensitive side, although it was not surprising to me. I love Joe, and we always talk straight. I believe that Teresa will take his advice and make up with Jacqueline before season’s end. And hmm, interesting conversation at the Laurita dinner table!! I love Chris, but the sock comment was TMI!

Lastly, as always I love seeing the girls in my Posche clothes! Teresa looked gorgeous in our Boulee violet Audrey top in her interview! We are currently sold out, but just ordered more colors for Fall! And of course, Jacqueline in our Kings of Cole Buddha tee paired with our Rich + Skinny distressed jeans. She looked adorable!

Well, that’s all until next week! Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer! I am loving mine. Have been spending lots of time at Posche and traveling on the weekends. Last weekend was especially exciting as I received an honorary Ambassador of Peace Award at a prestigious event in the Hamptons! I was thrilled and what an honor! After all, Andy did call me Switzerland… 😉

Ep. 7 & 8: Dr. V to the Rescue!

Hi dolls! I’m back! Took a break for a week, and enjoyed the summer sun! This was a two part episode, so here are my thoughts for both episodes 7 & 8!

Teresa asked my opinion back in the winter if I thought the retreat was a good idea. I told her I thought it was a very good idea, and I give her a lot of credit for organizing it. I think you can all see that everyone talks about each other. They are all angry and hurt. There are really no innocent parties here. Everyone at this point has almost thrown in the towel. We all see what’s been going on, and what’s lead to the different events that have taken place. I speak from personal experience when I say that this is normal in large Italian families to fight. This family’s fight just happens to be playing itself out on international television in front of an audience of millions of people!

The fight left me speechless, yet in a way I felt it was a good thing. I think it was something that they all needed to get out of their systems. A fight between the Joes seemed to be brewing for some time, and in the end I myself was just thankful that no one really got hurt.

As I stated in one of my previous blogs, Joe Gorga and myself are civil with one another now. Even though he called me a number of choice words, he apologized to me and we have moved past it. That being said I still feel very strongly that he needs to learn to control his anger, especially against women. It is just not right to call women names, especially when it comes to your sister. “Scum” is the type of word that is hard to take back once it’s been said. I truthfully do not feel he really meant it, but it was said in the heat of the moment. He just needs to start thinking before he speaks. On a separate note, I was hysterically laughing when Joe was explaining the black Rogaine spray getting on everybody during the fight in his interview! Too funny!

How cute did Teresa and Joe look in the bathtub?! Those are the good friends that I know and love right in that moment together. And they were drinking Peach Fabellini, my favorite!

I think Dr. V is great! She is clearly a beautiful, sexy Italian woman who gets it! I love her work ethic and can really appreciate that she has chosen to spend her life helping people solve their problems. I was so happy to see Teresa and Joe (her brother) break down and hug it out. Now she and Melissa need to figure out a way to forget about the past and bury the hatchet.

That’s all I’ll say on this one. I need to get back to Posche as we have been very busy running a big blowout July sale! I have some new projects in the works that I can’t wait to share with everyone! Stay tuned!
