    That's funny because Jacqueline tweeted this hours ago:

    she thought T didn't acknowledge T's nephews birth but T was @ hospital the day AFTER cause we were in Ca. the day OF doing press
    So, was she there or wasn't she?

    Maybe I'm also confused...but what's "acknowledging" mean as opposed to being there when the kid was born...aren't you acknowledging it being born by your mere presence at the hospital?

    If you think ethnic divisions take their time leaving the building, consider that in this day and age, although Teresa has given birth to 4 daughters, supposedly her husband's ostensibly conservative family is very openly proud of their grandson, the product of Joe's relationship with his mistress.

    There are still many people who have some very strong beliefs that having a son is preferable to having a daughter, so preferable that they will sometimes do things they would never dream of doing otherwise.

    What's especially intriguing about this particular subplot - and I'm hoping maybe one of our resident Medical Specialists can unwrap my head from the garment of this ignorance, but I thought that it was the sperm that determines the gender of the child.

    Yes...it's the sperm from the male that determines the sex of the child. Maybe that's why all that $$ is owed to the fertility clinic...maybe it wasn't for Teresa but for this other woman, yet Joe put it on his dime...hhhmmm...

    You are correct about that, which is why there are no innocents in this group of women. Thing is that article made it seem as if Danielle had people followed. Caroline's threats to investigate I had a feeling had more to do with having her commisioner friend run a check for her criminal record, not coming out of pocket to hire people to follow her. The image of people hiding in the bushes following people is what brought about that comment.

    As for Juicy Joe and his love child, if true it would perhaps explain why T decided to try so hard for another baby. Won't believe the love child story without proof, but would not surprise me one bit if Joe has a piece on the side so to speak. The idea of Joe being disinterested has been tossed around this thread for quite some time. Stuff like this is why I just could not imagine why people do these shows and then live in fear that their mess is going to be aired out in public.

    Yes really, I don't get the difference, either. And D's friends (at least a bunch of them), the book, and friends of her kids ARE part of the show, all brought up and presented front and center by D herself. She made a point to say on last night's show how much her kids' friends love her, and friends of Christine were shown at the sweet 16 party. She had a luncheon for her so-called friends, Danny has been on nearly every episode, that rough-looking guy who never speaks has been on a few, and now she has that lesbian singer friend or whatever the relationship is. As far as the book, yes Caroline and the girls were discussing it last season, but it was Danielle who pulled it out from under the table at the dinner fiasco and tossed it on the table like throwing down the gauntlet, lest we forget about the stupid thing.

    Yeah, that's weird. Maybe she never invites them to her house.

    Teresa's blog entry about her "nephew" is only relevant if you believe that's the "nephew" Danielle was referring to.

    Personally, I do not. Joe's family calls his son with Tara their "nephew." I think Teresa's blog is nothing more, or less, than damage control.

    That would make more sense if the child/nephew she is NOT acknowledging is really Joe's illegitimate child that is being passed off as a "nephew" rather than the other scenario re: T's real nephew.

    Someone here said it best when they said this is all so medieval. Boys are "better," be they born to peasants or kings.
