The Real Housewives of New Jersey: High Tide, Low Blow Recap and Commentary by RTVC Staff Writer Jackie Morrison
April 29, 2012
The ladies of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back.
Despite rumors that she was leaving, Jacqueline Laurita was still on board. Teresa was also back as was her iron pumping husband Joe.
Caroline introduces us to her HRT doctor as menopause is a bitch while Melissa and Kathy found themselves dealing with Teresa’s drama again and again.
If you ask me, Teresa is histrionic. After using her cookbook to bad mouth the other ladies Teresa continues her rant by calling Melissa a stripper amidst rumors that Joe is cheating.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Teresa drives to the beach with her four divas and gets into a bickering session with Joe.
Joe insists all the chicks at his Atlantic City trip were just business and Teresa could do nothing about it. Sad but true.
What kind of business is Joe talking about? Joe Gorga is not happy with Joe. He thinks his sister’s husband is a scammer for getting a fake driver’s licenses while suspended.
Too much legal problems for the Teresa and Joe all the time makes me wonder.
Kathy and Rich are staying at a friend’s beach house and the Gorgas may join them as their place is not livable.
Kathy makes dinner with her mother and sister in the kitchen. They all discuss Teresa’s cookbook where she accuses Melissa of copying her. Rich says it’s all a cover for Teresa’s upset at her husband.
Joe later confronts his sister about her delusional thoughts but it’s not worth it. Turns out Joe lent the couple a lot of money which he reminded her about.
Teresa promptly told her brother that his wife was a gold digger who would leave him for a richer man if one came along.
Later on Teresa hints that Melissa was a stripper in college.
Jacqueline’s trouble with Ashlee continues. The new blonde can’t work a vacuum or help around the house. Ashlee has no direction and at 21 she is still living like a teenager and drinking.
Jacqueline has tried and tried but Ashlee is very willful. Sometimes a boot is all that is needed.
Ashlee threatens to leave for Vegas where her grandparents are but recently it turns out that she went to California after all.
Caroline is doing better with her kids when they visit Jacqueline to talk about Teresa.
Caroline is still fuming about being called 1/16th Italian and for Teresa getting in the way of her relationship with her sister Dina.
Caroline remains the show’s matriarch and as she gets older maintains her tough and tender side.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
I doubt menopause will slow her down. If anything the HRT will help keep her full-blooded Italian passion at full tilt to deal with Teresa.
