The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Drowning Pool Recap and Commentary by RTVC Staff Writer Jackie Morrison
May 29, 2012
Caroline and Albert took a trip down memory lane with their anniversary celebration.
The couple visited their old apartment above the Brownstone where they lived when they were first married. Later on their kids get her a Jaguar for a gift and Caroline is shocked.
Never one to be too flashy Caroline is a proud mama bear. She is not proud of her daughter Laurenís ongoing struggle with weight.
Caroline was a size 2 until she turned 50 but Lauren has always been voluptuous. Maybe itís time to eat some Skinny Italian dishes if mama will let her.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Ashley is out in Las Vegas while Jacqueline adjusts to life without her oldest child. No Ashley does not mean no drama.
Unfortunately there is the overgrown child that is Teresa to take over drama duties at Kathyís pool party.
Kathyís husband has asked his kids to not bring their friends over since it will make high school hard for them if their classmates discover their connection to Teresa and her Joe.
The pool party begins and so does the tension between Melissa and Teresa. Teresa and her brother get into a sibling rivalry the likes of Cain and Able would be jealous of. Joe is not happy that his older sister called his wife a gold digger.
Teresa feels that Joe should be loyal to her being blood instead of Melissa. A little ironic given that Teresa is more loyal to her husband than her brother.
When your sibling gets married his spouse and children become a priority. That is just the way it is.
Caroline the matriarch is the voice of reason. She says that Teresa hates Melissa because she is younger and prettier and probably more popular.
According to Joe G that is true since he knew many guys who got with Melissa before she married Joe Gorga.
Teresa storms off after the fight with her brother and takes her kids and leaves. Joe G assures his wife that all she needs is him even if he ends up in jail.
Teresa continues to share the drama during an exercise session with Jacqueline and the drunk personal trainer Jolene.
Jolene is finishing off cocktails in between exercise sessions. Maybe things are just off in New Jersey. Teresa and Joe disowned each other after all earlier in the episode.
More and more it seems like Melissa is just the target of Teresaís endless insecurities.
Mamma mia! Madonna has always made me see Italians as hardworking people who are down to Earth and love family.
Teresa is ruining all the good work Madonna has done for Italian-Americans.
