The Real Housewives of New Jersey- Season 8, Episode 15, Reunion Part 2 

Last time on part one of the reunion, Kim D walked out on the stage, and she and Teresa started arguing. Bravo must be paying her well enough for this appearance. Andy asks Siggy, and Dolores if it was worth it to cause such problems with the women to walk in Kim D’s fashion show.  Dolores says yes, because it helped out two families. Teresa, and Kim D yell some more.

Season Finale: Siggy Ruins Another Party

The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 8, Episode 13, Prisons, Proposals and Parties

You may have noticed there was no recap last week.  Having a chronic illness means sometimes your body won’t let you do things you need to do.  The bigger crime in my eyes was that I missed the premiere of The X Files.
One thing I did see was a scene of Teresa apologizing to Danielle ,and her daughter Jillian.  This apology was for the “prostitution whore” comment, among others, the table flipping, and Jillian feeling like Teresa ruined her family’s life for years.  It was sincere, and a big moment for the three of them.  That was nice, but I have a feeling that this last party of the season is going to be full of screaming and drama.  If we have to hear one more word about cake…

In Milan, Teresa wants to cook a feast for everyone! She, Margaret and Dolores make a trip to the most beautiful Italian deli store, and I wish I was there eating prosciutto.
Teresa, Margaret and Dolores are making the entire meal from scratch.  An Italian chef is taking them through every step, including making the pasta. Dolores seems to be in her element, and says she doesn’t are about what drama is going on, because she’s in Italy making pasta. It’s nice to see Dolores having a great Italy moment like this. Teresa gets a little too overenthusiastic, and chops up pieces of chopping board along with the meat.

Siggy Ruins Milan

jersey italy 3The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 8, Episode 10, Meltdown in Milan

The women arrive in Italy, after a snoozefest of a packing montage. The hotel is beautiful, Milan is beautiful, the Duomo is beautiful. At least if this episode is filled with screaming, it will be in a gorgeous setting.
Teresa and Danielle enjoy a drink, and toast to Teresa’s dad.  Then, Danielle brings up Siggy, and they end up talking about Siggy going off on Melissa at the last dinner before the trip.
They cut to Margaret and Melissa, who are in a van with mutton chop-sporting driver Antonio, and they also discuss Siggy yelling at Melissa.
Cut to Siggy and Dolores.  Siggy is furious about Margaret’s Holocaust comment at the dinner, and decides to confront her about it that night.
Melissa and Margaret go shopping for Envy, Melissa’s store.  Melissa ends up buying just as much for herself as she does for the store.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 8, Episode 9, When Chairs Fly

Joe wants to see a medium, and is bringing one to the house so he can talk to his mom.  Melissa can’t believe he actually wants to do this, but she understands her husband needs this as part of his grieving process. Joe mentions that this is not something that traditional Italians do, but he wants to see if it is real.  Melissa responds by telling Joe about the latest Kim D rumors, and Joe is not pleased.
We then see Margaret talking to her Joe. She tells him the Kim D rumors, and that Siggy and Dolores are still going to walk in the fashion show.  Margaret tells Joe that a bunch of the women are going to confront Kim D. that evening at her fashion show.  Joe seems very entertained by that, as are all of us watching this episode.

Wee-Wees, Cookies, and Kim D.

JerseypitThe Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 8, Episode8, Walking on Broken Glass

When we last left the ladies, Margaret and Siggy were in a pit, and Margaret was roleplaying a Siggy.  Melissa questions aloud how this will do anything.
Siggy’s turn, she doesn’t really do an impression of Margaret, and a jumble of emotions falls out of her mouth.  Siggy starts crying again, and reminds the women how much it hurts to be made fun of over her name.  Margaret apologizes to Siggy, and Siggy also apologizes.  They hug, so maybe this wasn’t a bad idea.  I am pleasantly surprised that Siggy didn’t flip out over Margaret’s role playing.

Please Retreat From the Cake!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 8, Episode 7, A Retreat to Remember

Dolores and Teresa go to lunch to talk.  How does anyone enjoy their meals at these meetings? Teresa says she doesn’t feel like Dolores sticks up for her, and she doesn’t know what to believe when it comes to Danielle.  Dolores denies that she ever told Danielle that Teresa doesn’t care about anything but money. Dolores tells Teresa she feels hurt that Teresa didn’t stick up for her at the tasting.  Dolores feels like Teresa has been making fun of her relationship, but she tells her she should look at her own husband.  Teresa says she knows Joe has to “get his shit together” when he comes home. The two actually have their meal after this!  It would have been such a waste of good Italian food.
