The Real Housewives of New Jersey were a little late in posting their Bravo Blogs this week! So here it is for you guys, the good stuff!
Knowing what’s to come in the season finale, this episode makes me happy and sad at the same time. When I called a truce with Teresa, I meant it. I truly wanted to put all the past behind us and start with a clean slate. I wanted to forget about all the vindictive things that went on between us and move on for our children and our family. I was putting my two feet forward and giving the relationship my all. I didn't want to go back to where we were in the past. We made a promise to move forward, and that's exactly what I did. You will soon see that wasn’t the case for Teresa.
I also loved seeing them with Antonia and Melissa. Milania and Antonia have been best friends since the day they were born, and it hurts Milania a lot not to get to see her cousin as much as she used to. Since Melissa is so much younger than her sisters, my girls are the closest cousins that Antonia has. I love that little girl so much and would do anything to have her over more. We'll keep inviting her and our door is always open. Hopefully her mama will let us have a play date soon. We've haven't filmed in a year, and coincidentally, we haven't seen Melissa and her kids in a year (except for Melissa's solo appearance at Gia and Milania's birthday party in January). Maybe if the cameras come back around, we'll see "all-about-family Melissa" again too. Fingers crossed!
The Fabellini party scene was not an easy one for me to watch. It is what it is. If I could wish upon a star it would be to wake up one day and have the nonsense behind me and my family in front of me laughing like old times. Star light, star bright...
That's the way I was as soon as I became a parent, and I guess you can see some things haven't changed much in 18 years. I've always been the type of person that devotes myself wholeheartedly to something I'm passionate about. When it comes to my kids, it's on a whole other level. I've always looked at parenting like this; when we leave our homes we lock them and we store away all of our valuables with such care. Well what's more valuable to us as parents than our children? I think that you would all agree that there isn't a single thing. Overprotective? Yes, that's my duty and my passion.
I was very disappointed by the obvious calculating and scheming ways of certain people in this episode, but it doesn't surprise me. It’s a shame. Teresa knew exactly what she was doing by bringing Dina into that conversation about Caroline while the cameras were on them, and Dina had to know what she was getting into as well. That's all I will say on that.
