The question of the day is this: Are you Team Teresa? or Team Melissa? If you’re Team Teresa, I don’t get it. Especially knowing Teresa’s history and her abhorrent behavior on the show for two seasons. In a nutshell, last night was Teresa blaming everybody else for her and her disgusting husband’s behavior.
First thing I want to acknowledge is her tirade at Kathy Wakile about Teresa abandoning her children during the fight at the Christening. Teresa, YOU DID leave that baby unattended, and Kathy DID grab her AND Gia and got them out-of-the-way. And if anyone watched the after show Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen, he missed a golden opportunity to call her out on it. There IS footage of this incident. Teresa acted as if she were Mother Teresa, and that there was NO WAY she would leave those girls unattended. Well Teresa, ya did.

Warning: This is not really a recap, per se. More of an observation of the ladies this season thus far. It is a little mean, but please comment and tell me what you guys think of the OC Housewives and what’s been going on with them and their behavior this season!
One thing is for certain. Thank God for my DVR. As I was enjoying the night of my life at a Bon Jovi concert in St. Louis, the First Ladies of Bravo were just being the great, self-absorbed women of the OC. For this ‘recap,’ I felt compelled to write each lady a personal letter. And I really do feel the NEED.
Dear Gretchen Rossi: ( @GretchenRossi ) For two seasons, everyone was on your side. Why? Because you took the high road. This season, you have now become one of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Cunning, gossipy, mean, and very self-absorbed. Congratulations. You are coming off very full of yourself. The success of the show has gone to your head, and you’ve lost that “I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this treatment” sympathy. Now you are that mean girl. Is is Slade? Three seasons? Who knows. I was afraid this would happen, but anybody can be corrupted by ‘fame.’ You’re no different.
For more letters to the ladies, jump with me. Continue reading
I ask myself one question after every Housewives show: Do they really not see footage from the show? And also: Does Ramona not see footage of herself? And I’m not even referring to her ‘bug eyes.’ I’m speaking of her behavior. Ramona is definitely the Queen of Denial. Anyway, enough about Ramona. For now.
I always give about 50% leeway that this is still a show on TV. How real is it? Who really knows, who really cares. I just know I love every minute of it. I have also realized that my recaps are recaps of the ladies’ behavior, and not so much about the scenarios on the show. But being critical about their behavior is a TON of fun. I’ve already started on Ramona, let’s move on to Kelly Bensimon. ( @kellybensimon )

I think I quite possibly experienced the greatest 90 minutes of my life last night, between 8-9:30c. The third season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey began. And boy did it. The episode started with every Italian in New Jersey at a Christening. The baby was the nephew of Teresa Giudice. This year, we have the pleasure of being introduced to two new girls joining the show, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile. Both are related to Teresa, and both have major family issues with her. Thank God. I’ve absolutely abhorred Teresa since her big ’80’s hair flashed before my TV on 5/12/2009.
