S10.E13: Sorry Not Sorry

I had a friend who did that with boyfriends. Pick a stupid fight so they would leave her. Otherwise if she would just initiate the breakup, the boyfriends would seem to linger around.

I used to do this.  I just didn’t want a whole confrontation so I would just start acting shitty and hope they would break up with me or cheat on me so I could leave,  Of course, I was like 20 years old at the time, not middle aged with four children.

She’s extra as all get out, but I do have very strong eyebrow envy regarding Jen.  They look amazing.

Tre was on WWHL and Andy referred to her time in the "slammer". She said that her and Caroline are still not friends after their SB commercial. She still has nothing to do with her cousins Kathy and Rosie. When she is sitting in the clubhouse she looks, you know, dumb.

I'm more interested in what the grandparents are up to... 

Delores' dad (I forgot his 1st name) - still toasting those bagels as part of your healthy diet plan ?  🍿

Jennifer's mom - any more skeltons in the closet you don't want to talk about ? Next meal with the cooked head of something on the table ? 🍿

Nonno - what's in the 10-gallon stock pot this week? Still sneaking shots of hot sauce? 🍿

Jackie's dad - now why has it been 19 years since you lived under the same roof with your legally married wife you all are claiming are still to be together? 🍿

And Marge Sr - I really would like to know just how wild of a woman you was 50 years ago... just what all did you do ?? Preach-and-Teach-and-Tell momma ! 🍿

I love this post!!! Jackie should have served the head of a goat or whatever the hell that was that Jennifer's mother served up to Jennifer when she came to kids birthday party...maybe Jennifer wouldn't have made such a big stink about nothing for the adults to eat.

Speaking of Jackie's dad...something is really off with this guy. He seems to be not all there...maybe early onset dementia? And what the hell was he wearing? He lives in that huge home all by himself? What is going on here? It's clear he and his "wife" are separated so why not divorce after all these years? Where's Jackie's long lost sister? There's some dysfunction here...for sure.

And yes! I would love to know what the hell Marge Sr. did when Marge Jr. was a child...good grief...was she an escort? 

Nonno should get more credit for keeping the home fires clicking on all four cylinders. Enough about Saint Teresa doing everything and sacrificing so much. Nonno makes sure the groceries are bought, meals are made and the kids are getting to their schools and activities...all Teresa does is get her nails/hair/makeup done and run around with younger guys. I never see her, the author of cookbooks no less, making meals or doing laundry or vacuuming or anything even remotely related to being a "housewife". She sits around whining and having pity parties or going on elaborate vacays at 5 star resorts.

For those non Jersey people, nobody would drive from Paramus just to go to Panevino (Livingston) for date “night.” There are far better places that are a much shorter drive than 30 minutes. Oh and of course Bill has a yellow car. Ugh.

So true...also, it looked like a date brunch as the sun was no where near going down. Shouldn't "date night" be at night, not in the afternoon?

Gabby couldn't get into any vet schools in the states ? Where did she go to undergrad ? I know 30 US accredited schools is a small nbr ( source ) , but applicant only needs one  school...

This is a flashback to another side conversation on another show/board when one of the cast remembers only applied to a medical school outside of the states. One of the points of concern was how hard it could be to find a residency for someone who attended school outside of the traditional US medical school programs.

Do vets have a do a residency ?

Can't image a college turning off water at 10pm...

Vet schools are harder to get into than regular medical schools...the reason being that veterinarian medicine is more complex since vets have to learn the anatomies and complex make up all kinds of animals. There really aren't a lot of  accredited vet schools in the U.S. but most of them are very good and selective. One way around this, if someone is having difficulty getting into one and going to a Caribbean school is not an option for various reasons, is to enlist in the U.S. Army and put in for veterinary medicine. I have a friend who did this and got her veterinary medical degree through the Army and served as a veterinary doctor for the Armed Forces as payment for schooling and a vet degree. She served in South Korea and Japan before coming home and going into practice. It is more lengthy than going to a regular school stateside, but you get a quality veterinary medicine education and diploma while serving your country and helping the military dogs and other animals.

Here's the link to Margaret Joseph's jewelry line.  Yeah it's not expensive but it's not exactly cheap like Margaret was saying.  I feel like you can find just as nice things at Target or Dillards for much less.

 

I like Jackie but I'm just not interested in her eating disorder story.  I understand it's something a lot of women go thru but didn't we just go thru this same thing with one of the ladies on RHONY??  I mean I feel like it's material that's been covered time and time again.  *yawn*

JoeGo loves/needs Joe Gi because as long as he can be a topic of discussion JoeGo can have someone to claim superiority over. Andy always let's his gross moments slide or spends as little time as possible on them, such as the ongoing disrespect of Melissa to the kids last year.  If Joe Guidice told someone to bang their wife more and straighten her out, Andy would drag him for a half hour at the reunion. He loves JoeGo though, if not for that Melissa wouldn't still be here I'm sure. Hell even I admit he brings more to the table than Melissa. 

 

Andy has eyes for JoeGo.  He always gets giddy around him.  That must be why he keeps him around - Melissa is beyond boring.  She really doesn't have a storyline.  She must have realized that before the season started, so she came up with the baby bullshit.  I do hope this is her last season.

I find JoeGo repulsive.  I don't think Melissa is all that into him anymore to be honest.  I think she's realized that he is dumb as a door nail.  And pretty sure they are living off her Bravo paycheck, he's not bringing in the big bucks these days.  When he was in construction, before the housing market went belly-up, he was probably making money hand over fist, but I think they have to sell that house in order to afford a new project.

I agree wholeheartedly. Joe Gorga flirts with Andy and does whatever he needs to do to stay in his good graces.

I thought this too at first.  And then...I am so ashamed to admit this, but I did some no-life-bitch Nancy Drew sleuthing, and I found out that the sun set at 8:22 pm in Paramus on June 1, 2019, which is approximately the date they went, given the fact that Mother’s Day had been a few episodes ago, and they went to Jackie’s beach house just before Labor Day.  So they could have gone at, say, 7 pm, and if they got their food by 7:30, it would have still been sunny out?

Kudo's to Dr. Bill for walking away from Joe G. instead of punching him square in the face. He knows he has to keep his composure on camera for the sake of his thriving plastic surgery practice which he needs in order to keep his wife in diamonds, mansions and Chanel. I like Dr. Bill and I think he gets a kick out of Jennifer's ridiculousness. He knows she's a dingbat. He didn't marry her for her smarts. He married her because he needed pretty, Turkish arm candy that was willing to have a gaggle of kids for him.  He told her when they were walking in to Margaret's party that she should have only ONE tequila. Of course she didn't listen. He tried.

It was pretty bright and I didn't see where the exactly sun was in the sky, of course, so I am not ruling out shenanigans, but it could well have been after 6. I get home from work about 7-7:15 and it's sunglasses on the entire way all summer.

I really like Bill. I think he's very sweet, calm, and supportive of Jen. He seems to get a kick out of her and they get along really well. Little Juicy is Melissa's fourth child. It was nice of him to come fix the pipes though.

Big Juicy really seems to be losing his mind in ICE, and it seems to really be making Gia angry and hateful as well. I think she's kind of standing by him, filling a wife type role, since her mom has checked out and she feels bad for him and no one else is taking care of him.

Jennifer's dad supported a theory of mine that Jewish men love track suits. I don't know why, but so many Jewish men default to track suits for comfy clothes. Maybe they think it's stylish? Jackie was dressed really sexy for a visit to her dad. If I wore that outfit around my dad, he'd ask me to put clothes on, and my mom would go downstairs and find me a shirt to wear.

I thought it was great of Dolores to be honest why her daughter was in vet school so far away. She didn't have to say that she didn't get in to vet schools she applied for in the states, but she wasn't hiding it. Her daughter seems really nice.

Little Puffy Franky is great looking. This group of Italians on this show have some of the prettiest eyes.

Re: vet school- I had no idea. I guess since I am fairly  close to one of the 30 in the US (my poster name gives the city in the state), and I see so many vet practices,  in addition to places like Petsmart,  I didn't know vet school was difficult to get into.

If the show would pull the lid back on some of that I might consider Jackie to finally be of some interest after all.  I fear all we're going to get is rehashing of the eating disorder and some minor squabbling. About that scene in Jackie's dad's kitchen, I couldn't get over the huge square tube tv on the counter.

I can see a guy saying something like that to someone who he has been friends with for a long time, but in real life I doubt Joe and Bill are more than acquaintences. Even for the sake of "the show", that was way out of line.

She pulled in another gig. I've been seeing her too often the last few days on some beauty box commercial.  I was only surprised that he didn't find a way to get himself on camera for that too.

Did that black SUV have fucking SEAT BELTS? NJ has a seat belt law right ? I feel so sorry for these CHILDREN who are not safe. That’s right. Not safe.  Seat belts save lives. T should be cited and that would probably break her probation. 

I don’t think children of any age who have a parent in jail need to know they need documents to get in, the parent who organizes the visit should facilitate  all of this. How about we just let kids have as little of a pile on of drama as possible on a day they have to see their dad behind plate glass after not seeing them for four months!? F***! Ugggh! 

Bet T had time to get her hair and makeup done rather than get documents and seat belt her kids though !

It was interesting to hear Jackie’s history with an eating disorder, and I’m glad she is doing better, however- most people with eating disorders don’t want their illness to define them. Jackie is becoming one note. And I’m sorry to say her Dad creeps me out. 

It makes me happy to see Nonno Gorga being such an integral part of Theresa’s household. He seems really happy! It used to break my heart when he would frequently weep from a broken heart.

Color me embarrassed over Joe Gorga calling out Bill on the supposed need for more sex and for Margaret, her boobs, and all the unnecessary commentary regarding them.

Juicy Joe continues to be such a neanderthal in his comments to Teresa. I don't know how she manages to keep her cool. Such a sorry pig he is.

I, too wonder what Marge Sr. did when she was younger. I know people think of her as funny and "refreshing" but to me she is just vulgar. No wonder Margaret thought nothing of giving her boobs star billing at her party. Seriously, either of my parents would have run to get me a shirt to cover up, no matter what my age.

Are we sure Juicy said ANY of these things?! We're taking Teresa's word on this...

"He told me I had baggage." 

"He said 'I feel nothing for you.'" 

Um... did he? We did hear him say he didn't want to get married, but who can blame him for some nastiness while he's losing his mind in ICE?

I have to wonder if Tre isn't just putting all this on camera to set up an understandable narrative and thereby a supportive response to a divorce. 

Just sayin, we're taking a lot on Tre's word here... and back in the car after the ICE visit, he said, "All three of my girls look great." Kind of odd if he just told Tre he feels nothing for her and she should go find someone else. ::shrug::

I like Margaret Jr a lot!  I really do!  I don't know if I find her refreshing, but I like her.  She is kind of old, noticeable older than most of the other ladies.  Then - she is always dragging Marge Sr around with her, and trying WAY TOO HARD to make her happen. 

I do not like Sr, she always has this hangdog look on her face, probably because of her jowls.  The facelift didn't help.  She is an old lady, sorry!  Not to be ageist, but I don't want to watch a show about women in their 70s partying in the city.  I think she fancies herself Carrie Bradshaw, but she's not and I am embarrassed for her.

I thought the WWHL was good by Teresa standards.  When they were playing the game (Teresa had to describe people to the other guest) and Elizabeth Warren popped up I was shocked she knew she was running for president. Given Andy's "Good Job"... -I think he had her in the mix hoping she wouldn't since he's a dick like that.

I like Bill a lot too. Surgeons in my experience are a generally rigid group. This seems so out of his element and hes just trying to get by. I can see Jennifer nagging about wanting to be on the show and he juat said what the hell sure and suddenly Joe Gorga is in his face about his sex life. Meanwhile Joe in all likelihood married Melissa just to have sex with someone regularly but they both share the common bond of loving the camera. There have been several scenes with with Jennifer and Joe that Bill seemed on the verge of laughing but this wasn't one.

Sorry if this is too off topic.  In 2006 I had the unexpected pleasure of having lunch with Tony, Paulie, Bobby, Silvio, Meadow and Carmela (plus everyone else in episode 1).  We were shooting a commercial on another set at Silvercup Studios.  The things I remember. More profanity than I have ever heard in my life, the largest men I have ever seen in track jackets, and the best Italian food imaginable through craft services.  They stayed in character throughout lunch and it was an experience of a lifetime--I felt like I was having lunch with a bunch of mafia men!

I think in the beginning, RHNJ was trying a bit to have some Sopranos flavor.  Caroline thought she was Carmela - ha!

That's true. However, we also heard him call her a c*** and tell her all she did was spend money, and do nothing but diss her and insult her during at least two different phone calls although unprovoked. It doesn't seem we need much else to go on to feel that he is done with her. I believe it's mutual.

On WWHL the other night Andy showed some photos of Juicy cavorting on a Mexican beach with some women. How does he afford this? Does Teresa send him support?

When Nono referred to young Frankie as “thick” I’m wondering whether he meant “solid” as in “solid citizen”.

I finally just saw this episode. And I have to say, I like the business side of Marge.  This isn't Teresa and fabellini or Melissa twerking on her runway, this is a 20 year career, that existed long before the housewives, and you could tell that for Margaret, this was a really important professional milestone.  It was really nice to see.  And I don't doubt that Margaret made it crystal clear ahead of time that if anybody threw down at her event, there would be hell - and legal fees - to pay.  

Joe Gorga is a pig.  I have to give credit to Bill for walking away.  Joe and Melissa are not classy.  Nobody wants to be them.  They only have a sense of etiquette when it serves them.  They will do anything for the cameras and attention.  And Bill, the quiet and unassuming plastic surgeon should have punched him in the nose, and then revoked the friends and family discount.  And Evan and Joe laughing along with him?  Is that considered acceptable?  I feel like if anybody in my husbands social circle pulled that, nobody would have been laughing. On the contrary they would immediately be telling the offender to fuck off and apologize. 

I like Jennifer.  I don't know why.  She makes me laugh.  But she is also unapologetically herself.  Same as Teresa.  It makes good television.

Has Jackie's husband always been that much taller than her? 

And speaking of Jackie.  I like her.  She is smart and articulate and I don't think she is a bad hostess (although did anybody else catch her comment about how she isn't as thoughful of a hostess as Margaret when it comes to details and a really great party?  Does that not extend to Jennifer?)

And don't get me wrong, all families don't come with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence.  But, her parents live apart.  She developed a severe eating disorder.  She and her sister are estranged to the point that they won't be in the same home for holidays.  We know that Jackie is pretty controlling and rigid.  So yeah, there is something going on there that we aren't getting.  Jackie is only showing what she wants to show and it is really evident.  I'm kind of hoping that Andy turns the cameras on her heavily next season.  Otherwise, why be on the show?  Everybody is being very transparent about their lives and let's be real.  But the only thing we have learned about Jackie is what she told us in the first few episodes last season, other than the money factor, which really shouldn't be such a surprise because this IS the housewives.  Even Evan signing a prenup isn't that shocking.  That's just good sense when one comes to the marriage with money.  So yeah, maybe she is boring.  Or maybe there is much more there and we just need Andy to dig around a bit.  

Her exchange with her father bothered me a bit.  For one, how could her parents not have noticed?  In my 20s I went from a size 12 to an 8 and my mother fretted that I was losing too much weight.  Jackie went from over 200 pounds to less than a 00?  And mom and dad didn't notice????  She hid it?  

And her comment about her dad being proud or envious because she achieved what he couldn't, and her tone of voice when she said that was kind of bizarre.  Like SHE was proud that he was proud of that.  It bothered me.

I suspect that because her brother had special needs that she didn't get some of the attention she needed growing up, which is not uncommon in scenarios like that.  Her father's weight obsession probably didn't help.  But it is never as simple as that.   Clearly there is much more to Jackie's story than we are getting.  Whatever life she was weaving for the show isn't holding up.

I am trying to figure out why Dr. Bill would want to be filmed, ever.

He seemingly has a thriving and respected practice.

I doubt he would need the publicity from a reality TV show to maintain that practice. No doubt it helps, but not needed. 

Considering the embarrassing and at times vulgar interactions with his wife and others, I can not fathom why he agrees to filming. He doesn't seem to be the attention whore that Joey G and Big Frank Catania are. I like Bill. I like the gentle demeanor he has or shows on TV at least.

Coco is gone, but Chanel has become bizarre and untasteful - IMHO - I buy whatever suits me at the time and what I can afford, so there’s that.

Gabby couldn't get into any vet schools in the states ? Where did she go to undergrad ? I know 30 US accredited schools is a small nbr ( source ) , but applicant only needs one  school...

This is a flashback to another side conversation on another show/board when one of the cast remembers only applied to a medical school outside of the states. One of the points of concern was how hard it could be to find a residency for someone who attended school outside of the traditional US medical school programs.

Do vets have a do a residency ?

Can't image a college turning off water at 10pm...

When I heard that I immediately thought, NOT going to bring my pets to her! Just what are the standards for outside the country vet schools? Be sure to check you pet's doctors credentials just as you do your own doctors!

When Joe removed that the trap section of the sink drain, it looked disgusting.  I think it was filled with grease/old oil from frying and cooking.  

I can't believe that Nonno had to tell Joe to take the pipe to the bathroom, like Joe was going to turn the water on in the kitchen sink to clean it out (although, that would have been funny, and not the first time something like that would happen, LOL!).

But, doesn't that huge mansion have some type of slop sink somewhere (laundry room, garage, etc.?  -  I think I remember seeing one in the garage at one point)?  Why would he go to the bathroom?  

Some idiot is pouring grease down the drain I suppose.
