Episode 16: Rumor Has It…

Hi Dolls! I hope everyone enjoyed the gorgeous weather this weekend. I went into Little Italy last night for the Feast of San Gennaro and had a fabulous time! I love Manhattan in the fall!

So, we’re rounding it all out soon! Here are my thoughts on episode 16:

I would first like to congratulate my girlfriend Teresa on her new line of Skinny Italian products. I continue to be amazed by her, and I know she will continue to have nothing but success with all of her quickly growing brands!

It was very refreshing to see the Giudices and Gorgas have a nice family dinner at Rare. As an aside, if anyone is looking for a new steakhouse in our area of Jersey, Rare is fabulous!  The seafood tower they were eating is to die for! Anyway, I was very happy they were all relaxing and getting along. I love Antonia! She is such a wise woman and I have the utmost respect for her. She stole the entire scene! And didn’t Teresa look fab in her black and blue striped peplum top? It’s one of our faves, Torn by Ronny Kobo from Posche!

Juicy Joe clearly makes a juicy steak! My mouth was watering just looking at it! And loved the lesson on Fertility: 101 by Joe and Rosie! They had me cracking up. I thought Teresa did a very good job coaching Jacqueline with her speech, despite Chris laughing about it in the interview! It was all in good fun, and I thought his reaction was very cute!

Quick thought: I completely agreed when Joe Gorga told Johnny the music manager that “love is everything”, not sex. And Melissa is also wearing Torn in this scene. We have a few of those gold bodysuits left in the store…so sexy!

Richie was a big help in prepping for the big cannoli launch! My favorite part of the entire episode is when he drops the cards all over the kitchen floor! Haha I laughed so hard! And when the sign falls over outside! I will reiterate, Richie is hysterical this season! I wish Kathy a lot of luck, as I can speak from personal experience and say that owning your own business definitely has its ups and downs. I have never had the pleasure of tasting one of her cannolis, but I am sure they are very good!

Jacqueline’s Autism speech was very touching, and I thought her delivery was spot on. She is a wonderful mom and Nick’s progress is truly remarkable. He has come so far, and I think it’s very commendable that Jacq wants to help others by raising awareness.

Question. At Chakra, why does Melissa act so happy when she walks over to Penny at the bar? If she and Joe really believe Penny is the one who is actually spreading these rumors why act so calm around her? And better yet, why is Joe so quick to point a finger at all the women with regards to this cheating accusation? Why not go right to the source? I didn’t start the rumor. Teresa didn’t start the rumor. Jan didn’t start the rumor. And Penny didn’t start the rumor. Melissa’s ex did! It was all over Twitter. Whether it did or did not happen, HE is the one Joe Gorga should be confronting! Maybe it is just easier to always blame Teresa. Hmm…

Well, by the looks of the previews I guess you could all see I’m back next week! My Posche 2 opening at the Moxie Salon is the finale and it’s a two parter again! We’re gonna go out with a bang! Can’t wait for this one and I can only say one thing: Drama will be delivered! Until next week…

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!
