Episode 17: The Calm Before the Storm

Hi Dolls!

Well, here we are! Can’t believe we are almost at the finale! Where has the time gone?? This was my big night! Here are my thoughts on Episode 17:

Always love seeing my POSCHE! Was so pleasantly surprised to see my girls walk through my door together again! It was like old times when I first opened. They have both been my friends for years and it really upset me to see them have a falling out. I always stayed true to both of them though. I do not believe in burning bridges in business, or in friendships. However, if you mess with me, Hell hath no fury like the fury of Kim D!! I think you all know what I mean ūüėČ Anyway, did everyone like my hairstyle? My friend Jamie of the Moxie Salon in Ridgewood did it, and I have to say it’s my favorite hairstyle I have ever had filming on the show! Very Camille Grammer and I loved it! Teresa was dressed in head to toe POSCHE. Wasn’t that Alice + Olivia coat fabulous? And I loved the Feel the Piece top with the thumbholes underneath it! Everyone knows that I am easily accessible. I own a business and people come in to chat with me all the time. More often than not they tend to just tell me things I do not ask to hear. I was honest with the girls that Penny was invited to my opening. She has been a client of mine for years, so naturally she would be there to support me. I am not one to fight other’s battles, nor am I one to take other’s enemies on as my own. And “calm as a cucumber” is my favorite line! Haha love my Teresa!

Quick aside, Melissa was wearing our Torn by Ronny Kobo illusion midi dress for her vocal practice in Orlando. Didn’t it look fabulous on her? And Gia is right when she says all Mel’s songs are very catchy! The Little Town opening was a fun night. As usual, Teresa was representing POSCHE in our Alice + Olivia leopard blazer. She looked so fabulous all season long. The view from the restaurant in Hoboken ¬†is breathtaking. I wish the boys a lot of luck with it!

Now onto my opening! First I have to give kudos to the Moxie twins, Jamie and Jen Dunn. They presented me with the opportunity to open a POSCHE 2 within their salon in Ridgewood, and it was a great idea! They are already so accomplished at such a young age. Definitely an inspiration to female entrepreneurs like myself! You will see my new business venture, Cuffs by Kim D, strewn throughout the boutique. ¬†They launched in January and are doing fabulously! ¬†And did everyone spot the striking redhead in the green jacket throughout the episode? That’s my beautiful mom! And not to exhaust the POSCHE shout outs (it’s my opening so I’m allowed!), but Jacqueline looked stunning in our Jay Godfrey blueberry lace-up back blouse and Alice + Olivia pencil skirt! And how about Teresa’s dress?! One of my favorites by Single; hot pink leather! Love love!
Did everyone love seeing Juicy Joe get his eyebrows tweezed?! How cute was that? They even got Chris into the chair too! They were such good sports!

A very dramatic entrance was made by Penny, and she was immediately met by some confrontation. I won’t delve too much into this now because there will be A LOT to discuss in next week’s blog. Everything will wrap up in the 90 minute finale. You all can see from the trailer that things do not end too pretty. Let’s just say you definitely do not want to miss this one! That is all I will say for now. Stay tuned for what I feel is one of the most shocking episodes in RHONJ history…

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… ūüėČ

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!
