    Really really bad. I week afterwards I was driving many 5 gallon cans of gas to my family who lived in the area but did not have access to gas since power was yet to be restored. It was a nerve wracking trip & I am sure I could have made a fortune selling those gas cans but I am not like that ofr 1 thing but really my family came first.

    I saw maybe 5 minutes of this show when they took the girls to a bad shop. I don't know...maybe it is me....but my cousin's daughter & my son had their 1st Communion on the same day...we had a joint party and IIRC nobody threw a punch, drink or a curse word. I guess my family is just plain weird...we really do love & like each other.

    In all honesty you wouldn't unless you were a fan of the show. My son bought me a bottle of this stuff. It really does taste just like water. The color looks like the color of coke. I guess you have to retrain your brain just to not notice the color. I am too old to do that.
    Look at Skinny Girl. It became widly popular because so many people loved Bethenny...now maybe not so much. I had 1 bottles of her margarita mix in my wine shelf...okay now down to 1 after this weeken Would I ever buy it again...no. I just didn't care for the taste much. I got an intesne taste to alcohol, margartia taste was non-existant.

    I started watching this today.....and only got halfway thru it......Was it always this scripted?? It's so very transparent with all of them.
    Why would TPTB think that would entertain us?? I don't mind a fight but I do mind one that's planned and predictable.
    I really dislike Melissa and her trying to change this into The Saint Melissa Show, trying her best to be what Teresa is...she is so completely jealous. Although I think she'd be a better fit with the Orange County women...given the color of her spray tan....seems like Teresa and Kathy are no longer doing the orange skin thing this season.

    As people, they barely hold my interest but as Wind-Up Dolls they are extremely uninteresting.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    Did see the opening of this show last night. Can someone PLEASE explain to me how a couple can claim bankruptcy yet be allowed to keep not 1 but 2 homes???? I can understand being allowed to keep 1 home but a vacation home...WHY??? IIRC they had this home way before the whole bankruptcy. Wasn't this where Danielle went to hook-up with that jerk friend of Joe's?

    Bankruptcy laws vary from state to state. A lot of states leave homes out of the eqation, because they are trying to avoid the risk that declaring bankruptcy would leave a person homeless. That protection can be exploited, as it is when a person is living in a HUGE home, or has multiple homes. But the intent of the law is good. Sometimes, people also get around things like that by putting the home in the name of a business so it's separate from bankruptcy proceedings.

    I'm confused! I thought Joe and T were disallowed from bankruptcy. Something about fraud, and them having to pay back the creditors.

    Teresa has always reminded me of one of those troll dolls we used to put on our pencils.

    Wow yeah, Teresa.....It's pretty bad when you have to get parenting/grown up folks advice/direction from your 12 year old that is insanely embaressed of you. I thought Melissa was pretty annoying as well, but I can't tell if she's just that way or tired of dealing with the BS from Teresa.
