    I agree that Rich says disgusting things, but who takes their spouse with them to a business meeting? Seriously, I can't even imagine how that is acceptable.

    Which of Jackie's children is Nicholas? The older or the younger?
    The younger.

    Me, either, Gabby.

    But, then again, this IS RHONJ.

    I think, perhaps, because Richie was the one who had the initial connection with Bindi, TPTB (knowing his propensity for having a loose mouth and speaking inappropriately at the most inopportune times), absolutely INSISTED that he be included with Kat on the Bindi talks.

    Now, in the real, unscripted world, had that been me --- or most any of the rest of us, for that matter --- whether or not our DH or SO HAD been responsible for the initial hookup, he or she most likely would NOT have been allowed by us to sit in on the business proposal meeting. ESPECIALLY since we were aware before we even GOT there that they had an issue with a not-so-businesslike mouth. And also, because to do so would have been downright insulting to us. Like we couldn't blow our nose without them getting the tissue and holding it for us.

    And even without that, I cannot IMAGINE any serious business allowing a DH or SO to tag along and sit in on a meeting like that, anyway. Even if WE wanted them to. I can imagine somebody showing up with their running partner, the chief exec taking one look, and either: 1. Saying the sidekick would have to go, IMMEDIATELY; or, 2. Kicking BOTH of you to the curb, IMMEDIATELY.

    I think it might have something to do with the Bravo contract.

Holy cow! What a one in a million chance that could be!! Kudos to Tre for completely shutting down the gossip opporunity by insisting she will not talk about her family. Wow, there is some major growth for Tre who spent years trying to pile dirt on Her brother's wife. Km D. just could not stop asking questions of the bald guy concerning Mel, even though Tre left the room. What in the F*** business was it of hers? And then she made a point of bringing baldy to Mel and Tre's table. I actually believe that Mel didn't really know who this d*****bag was, though he looked familiar. He probably was a minor and unmemorabe employee of the club where she danced.

    When, in the previews, Tre is screaming, "I feel like I've been set up!" It just might be possible that our favorite mindless and self-absorbed villian really was set up by Kim D. And I'll betcha Bravo was in on the deal. Kim D. is a publicity whore. We will see what happens next week. But I sure hope that the efforts Tre and Mel have been making to repair family ties isn't a result of malicious mischief by an old bag who needs publicity for her "businmess".

    I guess we'll see next week.
    Totally agree that she's being set up. But, hey, that 's what Bravo does and she signed up for it.

    Let's just say it out loud. Richie thinks OUT LOUD in meetings with his "little head." It's so off-putting I cannot stand him and wonder what Kathy ever saw in him.

    He's an absolute detriment to her image in a business meeting.

    OHHHHHHHH AND I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT MELANIA. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
    Jac has recently stated that Nicholas has been diagnosed with autism.

    On the T and Mel thing - I honestly don't know what to believe. I don't care if Mel was a stripper. I know plenty of women who have been in their past - even current lawyers who stripped to pay for law school. On WWHL, Jac definitely implied that T was totally acting through the whole episode and absolutely knew that guy was going to be there and confront Mel. I think we get the start of that next week - with Jac getting texts from other people, my guess saying that T knew and was behind the ambush. But I could also totally see Kim D being behind it all. I don't like her at all - she is just icky. I think if T wasn't behind it, her big mistake was not being more forceful with him up front to shut up (and likewise to Kim D to stop asking questions), and in not calling Mel and telling her what this guy was saying. That she didn't do any of that makes me question how innocent she really was. We have all seen plenty of examples of her going to bat to defend those she cares about - so it was noticeable how meek she really was this time.
    I don't know... I think she was exactly as forceful as I would be under the circumstances. She was forthright, repeatedly, in her insistence that they not try to dicuss Melissa's past with her. What more could she have done? Maybe she should have borrowed a handgun from Juiicy.

    Looks like a chin lift, but her face is fleshy all around so the lift makes her look only a little different. I cannot get past her lips, they seem deformed even though they're not the major blubberfish style. They're wrong for her face.
