    Jac's was the most traditional or normal-looking, to me, but the brim was so wide and she's so short, I kinda thought it overpowered her, somewhat.

    Caroline's? Oh boy.

    And Teresa's?

    I'ma DEFINITELY leave that one a-LONE!!!!!!!!!! But what was so funny to me, was that girlfriend thought she was SERIOUSLY stylin' and profilin' in that thing!

    I LOVE hats. There are even a lot of British fascinators I DROOL over.

    But, most of the "hats" on the Jersey crew? Frankly, they looked to me like something that they'd gone kiting to Michael's or Hobby Lobby, checked the "Clearance" sections, then grabbed and slapped what they could together on a Goody's headband to meet the "hat" request of the grooms (or just Jaime, maybe).

    They could've done better than that. Hell, I could've done better than THAT!

    But, gotta give it to 'em . . . At least they TRIED to be respectful and comply with the dress code, I guess.

    A lot of people wouldn't've.

    I thought Jacqueline's hat was pretty horrendous! I can have a good time with hats, but you wouldn't catch me in THAT thing!!! Most definitely Not!!!

    Caroline's hat looked like it had a fried egg on top.

    They were ALL butt-ugly.

    LOL!

    Y'know, I've seriously got to wonder just WHO picked these "hats" . . .

    The girls themselves, or TPTB?

    If it WAS the girls, they ALL need to go have their heads examined, because the only taste they've got --- apparently --- is in their mouths.

    If it was TPTB, then, you really couldn't expect any better (because those choices would obviously have been setting EVERYBODY in the crew up for: "What the HELL have they all got ON?!" clear across the country), and the girls were stuck wearing what they were ORDERED/TOLD to wear.

    I'm thinking maybe the girls chose 'em, though, because Jac's was so very different (i.e., the most traditional-looking, and larger) than everybody's, so her hat stood out from the "Jersey Version of the Royal Wedding Headgear" that all the others were sporting. If they were directed/chosen by TPTB, I think she would've had on a Freaky Fascinator, just like the rest of 'em.

    What a bunch of heathens. Caroline's brother and his partner clearly planned a costly and tasteful wedding, and had to put up with verbal abuse from several guests - all that talk about "gay wedding gay wedding gay wedding gay wedding" plus an additional barrage of negative, demeaning comments, was unnecessary. For the luvagawd, if they cannot go and behave themselves, they should stay away. I'm betting the brother & partner were plenty steamed at the heathens.

    Same episode, the Wakile and Gorga clans did their best to make the gay sister (Rosie?) look like a lusting lesbian, when they had the bikini-clad sexpot jump in the jacuzzi and sprawl on top of Rosie. Dump a little beer in these people and the heathen just oozes out. Rosie herself was pretty tipsy, but she really paid for that day in humiliation when she sobered up. Antediluvian heathens, really.

    I must have missed the request for fascinators. He asked that they dress for an English garden party where hats are mandatory, as I recall. Spring colors and florals for dresses.

    Personally, I think most women over 30ish wearing fascinators look idiotic. A few character lines or crowsfeet uner a fascinator makes it look clownish. On my 20-something nieces, though, they look whimsical and pretty. At my family's annual Christmas Eve party eight of them were sporting them. I didn't realize until then that they are basically gussied up head bands.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    IIRC, Jaime DID say women were to dress as if for an English garden party, and hats were to be worn.

    Which, when he did that, seems like most of the Jersey girls took "English garden party", mixed THAT up with "hats" and came to the conclusion that they were supposed to have on British-style fascinators (Royal Wedding, again, anybody?) with their "English garden party" dresses. Far as I could tell, Jac was the ONLY one who took "hat" to mean HAT, as Americans usually interpret the word.

    Whatever.

    Except for possibly hers, they were all butt-ugly, anyway.

    Well,

    I love the part of the ceremony where he said he sleeps good at night because he knows he is with his partner

    I mean, facts are facts: After Danielle took off, they just HAD to have a catalyst for ongoing show BS.

    What I find to be very troubling about Teresa --- regardless of HOW she obtained her Resident Bitch show status --- is that she continually twists her words/outlook on any given subject to suit whatever will serve to make HERSELF look innocent at a given time.

    Example from last night: When she and Jac were talking about the prospect of her and her brother going into therapy to try to work out their issues, how quickly did she make the statement that it was JUICY that forbade her to do so? Whereas before, in PIs, at least, she said something to the effect of: "We don't need to do that. We're old-school Italians and we work our problems out inside the family."

    But, AGAIN, last night, talking to Jac, all of a sudden, it was: "Joe told me NOT to!" And then in a PI, she says: "So what does she want me to do? Divorce my husband?"

    To me, regardless of HOW Teresa wound up being at the forefront of all things crazy going on on RHONJ, right now, she CLEARLY has some issues going on upstairs that need to be addressed by SOME kind of professional assistance. She's making herself come across as a big pathological liar who also has a brother fixation, at the VERY least. In addition, she doesn't seem to be presenting herself as Parent of the Year, either, what with all the yelling, cursing, etc., that her girls continually witness going on between herself and Juicy.

    And all that off-the-wall behavior might be getting her bills paid, for right now, but what about the damage she's doing to HER family --- especially those girls --- in the long run? Forget the Gorgas, the Manzos, the Lauritas and the Wakiles. WHAT ABOUT THE GUIDICES??? Hell, forget JUICY, too, 'cause he's DEFINITELY a lost cause! WHAT ABOUT HER GIRLS???????

    I wonder if they're even saveable, at this point.
    Tree is so sick. She truly does not see herself. No one can bring up a difference of opinion or else she freaks out. It'a always, always someone elses fault. I feel so sorry for her kids, I really do. How can Dina even be friends with her? I haven't followed the show for that long, is Dina similar to Tree? I mean Caroline is not perfect, but she sure is a heck of a lot better than Tree.
