    Caroline Manzo suffers from MIGRAINES well guess what I was the one reaching for EXCEDRIN last night.

    GROW THE H&LL UP, TRE and CAROLINE. Enough is enough. Agree to disagree and MOVE THE H&LL ON. Sheesh.

    Last night was ANNOYING.





    In Jac's defense, I think she is very sensitive Lord knows she has had a full plate all her dealings with Ashlee and now we have all found out that her baby, Nick is autistic. (Not to mention her dealings with relationships such as Danielle as well as Tre, two friends of hers that no one else liked).

    Jacqueline was definitely playing possum last night. People who are really "passed out" don't sleep that "pretty'! Their mouths are usually gaping open, if just a bit.

    I think Kathy ws definitely within her right to tell Teresa to keep her hands to herself....and then, Ol' Ditzo kept touching her. I kept hoping that Kathy would slap her. You've got to have enough sense to respect people's boundaries, or suffer the consequences. I kept saying, "Stop touching her! Stop touching her!"

    None of their hate-filled vitriol makes sense in the real world of families and friendships. IMHO each and every one of them hates each and every other, excepting the married partners - other than the Joodice couple who clearly despise one another.

    These coarse, crass, undereducated, overchallenged, ego-inflated grifters and scammers will do anything, anything to be relevant on RH national television. Their arguments are manufactured, they grasp and grope for screeching loud ways to degrade and insult one another, then steam and claw at the eyes of the "enemy" to justify their alleged hurt and anger.

    Andy Cohen is really onto something here- there's a wave of lowbrow "hillbilly" television shows getting good ratings. Something about our society craves this right now. IMHO we are a people exhausted by the rigors of keeping our families in the solid mainstream of middle-class. With fascination we watch RHs play out their pathetic lives; we dissect them, laugh, sneer, and confirm that no, we would never sink that low; we're too bright and careful and reasonable to fall into that gutterwipe manner of living. I'm appalled and intrigued by the sideshow.

    I'm not defending either one of them, but an apology that includes the words "What else do you want me to say?" wouldn't sit well with me either.

    Sorry but she would not have gotten not one more apology from me. I would have shown jthe footage of her and her family making up inappropriate names for Tre.'s cookbook before it came out, and asked now is that funny also? Carolyn needs to pull her big girl pants up and get over herself. a woman with 11 siblings and only on good terms with less than a hand full is not someone who needs to be judging people.

    I may be mistaken but I did think Teresa did say she was sorry. I wasn't paying super close attention, though.

    What is that gawd-awful hair style Teresa is sporting during her wrap-up interview? It makes her look like a neanderthal. (or neandertall as Brendon would say)

    The very one!

    It is said that a high forehead is a sign of intelligence. Considering Teresa barely has room on her forehead for her eyebrow(s) (you know it's a unibrow if she doesn't run the mower through it daily) I'm guessing she has an IQ in the low double digits.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    Teresa only said a pro forma apology, as far as I remember. She said, "it was a joke" and she also kept insisting she never did anything wrong, the entire time she was apologizing-- her apology was more," if you think I did something wrong (which I didn't)-- you're wrong--it was just a joke, but if you're going to take it that way, I didn't do anything to apologize for, but I"m sorry if you think I did. I didn't hurt you, because I didn't do anything wrong, so I dont know why you think you need an apology though" It was pretty garbled but it came across to me sort of like that. I wouldn't take that as much of an apology.

    Caroline was more upset about the comments about her sons and the nude car wash though, than about the 1/16th Italian comments. Mostly, however, she seemed to be pushed over the edge because Teresa had told Dina things that caused Dina to turn against Caroline. It's never been discussed much, so I don't know what Teresa did, or what Caroline herself may have done or not done to hurt Dina, but there was a rift last time between Caroline and Dina, which Caroline felt Teresa had caused.

    It seemed that it was too painful to Caroline to go into-- and so it was left out. I also have a feeling there's a lot of stuff in the gossip papers that Caroline believes Teresa told them, bad-mouthing Caroline and the others.

    As far as Teresa's forehead-- she's had a peculiar haircut around her forehead all year. Sometimes it makes it short and stubby and other times it accentuates it, so it looks neanderthal-like as someone said. Whatever she's doing, it isn't working.
