    Me, too.

    But, then again, I think we'd STILL better have the barf bags at the ready.

    After all, this IS Bravo.

    And I won't be watching the new season, BTW.

    But news DOES still get around!

    Andy?

    Said it elsewhere in here before, and will say it again, now:

    Andy is a Bravo Boy, through and through. Like the Giudices, he has NO regard at ALL for the numerous people these idiots have insulted, hurt and abused via their actions. Bravo owns him, and every breath he takes, by HIS choice.

    Like Teresa and Juicy, he's sold his integrity and soul for an almighty dollar, and ratings.

    So, far as I'M concerned, ANDY is no better than THEY are.

    Yeah . . .

    SHAME ON YOU, ANDY.

    JMHO.

    I will wait to see how Bravo portrays them on the next season before passing judgement. I've always been one who believed that a huge element of the Real Housewives franchises was a message of "be careful what you wish for". On the surface, for the women who are on the shows, there's an appearance of trying to aspire to lives like they live. But beyond the surface, Bravo goes far to show everything that is given up in order to give the APPEARANCES of a glamorous life -- broken friendships, marraiges falling apart, unruly children, etc. With the Guidices, I could see the show going in one of two directions. One would be what it sounds like most people are expecting - still living in a huge house driving expensive cars, throwing expensive parties and pretending everything is fine. The other however, would be to show all the cracks in the foundation - the mistrust in their marriage, the rocky friendships, people not so sure they want to associate with them, etc. If Teresa is portrayed as the outcast because of what she's gone through, I see no problem with Bravo bringing them back. After all, any money she makes from the show can be used to pay off some of their creditors.

    From that link.... "Under federal sentencing guidelines, Joe Giudice faces a potential sentence of 37 to 46 months and Teresa Giudice could get 21 to 27 months, though the judge could deviate up or down from those ranges. Klingeman said after Tuesday's hearing that his client will seek probation." So do these lowlife creeps just get off with a handslap of a couple years? I'd like to see them in prison for many, many years.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    This just goes to show you BRAVO & Andy Cohen have zero mendoza line where it concerns their "stars". These 2 are admitted felons yet BRAVO still allows them to continue filming. I firmly believe these "stars" are encouraged, perhaps financially, to incite mayhem. RHOC did nt start off that way at ll, neither did New York. The game changer was when Teresa flipped the table. That single table flip was Bravo's golden ticket; it was bye-bye Danielle & hello Gorgas. The same was true with the wig pull in Atlanta.

    I believe I have matured on past these shows at this stage in my life. I read up on here & occasionaly catch a bit here & there but none of these shows are on my dvr favorite recordings anymore. I have yet to see any of OC and about 15 minutes of New York, just enough to se Ramona being her usual drunken self. Drunk is never a good look on any woman epecially one in her 50's.

    Ugh is right. Melissa Gorga is gross and boring.

    Thank goodness. Word on the street is that Melissa was trying to get her sisters on the show. I'm glad to learn they did not make it.

    As to Teresa and filming....I think its great that Andy is filming Teresa. Why not??? The franchise is supposed to be about these womens' REAL lives...not made-for-tv drama of the kind Brandi Glanville or Kenya Moore give us.

    Not to condone Teresa and Joe for their crimes, but it is what it is at this point. To not film would have sent the message that Bravo dusts some of the real stuff under the rug. Not good for a show that is supposed to be about real lives.

    I haven't watched NJ in full for quite some time...I find most of the cast pretty repulsive, but I will watch this final year of Teresa's countdown. Or at least parts of it.
