The Jersey girls dished it out this week in their Bravo Blogs! It's making me so excited for the reunion. Honestly, this season was so boring and I don't see why everyone thinks the whole Posche Fashion Show thing was such a huge deal, but the reunion looks like it might actually be good. Here's the good stuff from this weeks Bravo Blogs!
Teresa is very close to Kim D. To this day, there are recent pictures of them together hanging out. I am also friendly with Kim. We talk. She knows how I feel about all of this. Why isn't Teresa angry at Kim D. for setting up and destroying her family if she knew Kim was in on it? I thought she loved her family and was loyal to them? (Cough, cough...NOT!) How DARE Teresa try to publicly blame the set-up on me as if I would ever do that to Melissa. I like Melissa, unlike Teresa and Kim. Kim made it VERY clear that she didn't like Melissa, was involved in the set up, and was enjoying it, yet Teresa wasn't upset with her at all. God forbid Melissa chat with Danielle four times when she and Teresa hated each other. Melissa never even met Danielle in person and she never acted out on what Danielle wanted her to do. Nothing ever transpired out of that brief interaction, not even a friendship between them. Teresa was buddies with Kim while she was pretending to be so happy and close with Melissa. Teresa even joined Kim inside the restaurant AFTER the fashion show, after all the drama happened and even after Kim fought intensely with her brother, and they are STILL friends. Interesting isn't it?
Why did I go to the new salon with Kim D? Because she asked me to go with her. And it was just for make-up, not hair. And it wasn't just some random place. They were a major new sponsor of Kim's fashion show as you could see from their name on the step-and-repeat, Chateau Allure Salon. Kim's fashion show raises thousands of dollars every year for charity, and I support it. So do all the other ‘Wives. I know Melissa now calls it a "trashy party," but that's only since she started supporting a competing local fashion show. And Melissa seemed pretty excited when Kim D. asked her to walk in the show last year... I don't want to forget my old friends just because I got more popular and met new ones.
Am I friends with the people who owned the salon? No. It's owned by Johnny Karagiorgis (@JohnnyTheGrk on Twitter) and his wife Penny Drossos (@PDKhair). I've met them at a few of my appearances, and they seem nice enough. I know they like me, I just don't know them very well. I only heard after the fashion show that Penny and Melissa don't get along, but like I said last week, I can't keep up with everyone in our town that doesn't like Melissa! All I can do is tell people not to talk about my family and excuse myself from the situation, which I do every time, even to Kim D! I have heard since then that Penny used to be a special needs teacher and has a Special Needs day every week at her salon where she pampers kids and adults with special needs, which is pretty amazing
How does Penny know Melissa? I don't know, you'd have to ask her. From what I understand, it's actually Penny's family member, not Melissa's, who owned Lookers (weird thing to lie about). Maybe their argument is from something back then.
So there you have it folks... The moment you've all been waiting for. Ugly, don't you think? What is there to say as you watch a friendship disintegrate and a family destroyed? I got nothing...
The Finale: Cast members are angry, hurt, disillusioned, tired, and wondering how on earth we will be able to make some sense of this and get up at 5:00am to be ready to film a reunion with some civility. And then, the unintended finale… It is obvious from facial expression and body language that Jacqueline is in a complete state of shock and is having a meltdown. A sense of sadness and futility pervades the conclusion of this melodrama.
There you have it. I don’t feel I need to waste my time and give you a blow-by-blow of what happened in this episode. I think there were far too many “kawinkydinks” and the writing is on the wall. I know by now you all know me, you know my family, and you know my values. I live my life by three words: trust, loyalty, and respect. I have forgiven and forgotten many things, but I will not let anyone, whether it is an aunt, cousin, sister, mother -- I don't care who it is -- ruin my family. I am a mother and a wife, and that comes first with me. I have to protect my family, and if that means staying away from negativity, then that's what I will do. I would do the same if it was my own sister.
