It seems Joe Guidice is doing more to disrupt Teresa and Joe's relationship than anyone else.
Teresa saying Melissa may have married into the Gorgas but doesn't act like them ... I believe she's not too hurt about that statement. And did you consider that your mother also married into the Gorga name but isn't a blood name.
Wasn't this rant after the "good time" they had at Melissa's party? She saw that the people she didn't like were tossed out. Then she has to get another dig in at Melissa. But she's all about getting along.
The kids were cute. Over dressed, but they were all probably used to it.
Why in the world did Joe Guidice start going off about Melissa?? Joe Gorga was giving Gia a hard time about that boy, Melissa said something teasing, then Joe Guidice started in on Melissa being an animal? I may be reading this all wrong, but I think it's sour grapes. She wouldn't give him a second glance so she's a b****.
So Lauren called Kim G on her evil intentions, Kim G started in on her and the Manzos escorted her out. If it were anyone else I'd have a problem with one guest throwing another out ... but this was Kim G and she deserved it.
Ashley didn't give her mom a gift ... did she have any money? The girl is 20, she should have done something. She blew it off, and she wonders why America doesn't like her? Or Chris.

Joe Guidice is all around cranky and sour this season, but he should really step back on his opinions on the Gorgas. Yeah, we know, he hates Melissa, probably blames her for the entire fallout, but he needs to bite his tounge. In the beginning he was passive aggressive about it, which worked for T because she's not bright enough to pick up on that. Now he's just aggressive, and he needs to stop.
Melissa is still taking shots at T when she has a chance, but T needs to stop her shots. She's the one that wants to save her relationship with her brother. Let Melissa take her shots, T needs to concentrate on smoothing things over if she wants to keep him in her life. This reconciliation won't make it past this season once everyone witnesses all that's been said.
As for Kim G., I never thought I'd enjoy watching guests overstep their bounds and toss another guest out without the permission of the hosts but I was looking forward to watching that moment all week. It was a side of Albie we never saw. Kim got into it with Lauren and Mama Manzo and Albie was having none of it even. He let Chris know that he'd have to deal with it regardless of his friendship with Kim G's son. Kim obviously doesn't respect the friendship between the boys and uses it to push her way into this show without getting Manzoed but she got it last night and as much as Caroline drives me mad I was Team Manzo all the way last night. I did feel for Chris when he was in tears and it really showed why the Manzos put up with Kim G, their boys must really care about each other and good friendships are hard to find. Kim G needs to put her son ahead of her own witchy agenda and stop stirring the pot. If she allows Bravo to pay her to put her son's friendship in jeopardy she's a sadder case than I originally thought.

Great entertainment last night When Kim G got thrown out I was laughing my head off. I do think Chris had it under control in the driveway however. I really didn't see the need for Albie and the rest of them to come out and add fuel to the fire. All for drama a guess. T and Juicy really enjoyed the spectacle as well. Don't know what was up Juicy's ass last night. I really didn't get why he got all agressive and nasty. What was that about?
Ashley...... oh Ashley.... I feel for Chris. She has absolutely no clue. She should be ashamed of herself for that behavior. I just want slap her around and pull her hair.
What was it that Teresa called the backdrops they pose in front of (of which one was set up in front of Melissa's house for the party)? I'd never heard that term, but it made sense when she said it. Just can't remember this morning..........
The littlest Guidice daughter dressed in yards of tulle reminded me of something we'd see on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
I thought the poor little tyke was going to do a face plant at any moment. Whoever is styling those girls (and their mom!) needs a reality check. Teresa's skirt, seen from the rear as she answered the door, actually made me gag a little. It was stretched so tight across her very large tush that it appeared ready to snap up to her waist like a rubber band.
I had a another gastric response to the food. It looked divine, and made my tummy rumble.
Loved the impromptu photo shoots of the the cousins, Gia's being gracious while the men teased her about her ring, Tre's way of getting down to the eye-to-eye level with the kids when talking to them, her mom dressing up like Santa.
Poor Joe Giudice is a mess. He's so embarrassed about the situation he's in. He stays angry. I think he's seething mad at himself for letting "Tre" spend like there's no tomorrow. I think he could care less about having all that stuff and a big house. He strikes me as a simple man, who is caught up trying to keep his status crazy wife happy. He's mad at the world right now. The only reason he even continues to let himself be filmed, is money.
I think they should have left Christopher handle Kim G. alone. Of all the Manzos, I think he had the most adult approach - and the most to lose.
And what is up with Lauren? She seems to get bigger with each passing episode. And where is her boyfriend?

I absolutely loved that they got rid of Kim G.
What a horrible woman she is!
I love that the entire Manzo clan was in on the action there.
I do think they've been putting up with Kim for many years due to her son's friendship with Chris.
Enough is enough.
Ashley is so totally clueless. She is so lucky to have such a wonderful stepfather as Chris.
OMG!! That food at Teresa's and Caroline's looked mouth watering!!
