Team Giudice-1 Team Gorga-0


"Yeah She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman’s been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can’t take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk
Out of the girl."
-Brooks and Dunn

In case you're new to the blog, I happen to take sides on certain situations. I'm famous for being Team Kate (Gosselin), Team Anniston and Team Anti-Palin all of which are situations where the sides of the aisle are very polarizing. Picking sides are natural in life even in such a touchy family situation like this. I have to admit that when I anticipated writing this post I figured I'd be writing about how we all finally are seeing Teresa's true colors. When we left off last season I was left with a sour taste in my mouth regarding Teresa.

All I can say is what an interesting and surprising turn of events....

I think Caroline said it best when she said that all families fight. It's true. They do. And we all know that there is more to the story than we're seeing, BUT from what I saw, this is what I think.

  • Just because the Gorgas have money doesn't mean they have class. From the moment they opened their mouths it was a non-stop Giudice bash fest. 
  • Bottom line this fight is about sibling rivalry. Teresa and her little brother Joey (btw, for the purposes of my blog I'm gonna call Joe Giudice, Joe and Joe Gorga, Joey because well he acts like a little kid I think) to me look like they the classic sister/brother relationship that is complicated by new spouses and parents. 
  • It also was the wrong time and wrong place for it to happen. The christening, Joey was drunk, and Melissa's chip on her shoulder were all things that didn't need to be there or going on when this major family dispute occurred. It was more than unnecessary for Melissa to ask why Teresa was saying it a second time. No matter what her motives were in doing so, it was their son's day and they lost sight of it. They were the hosts and they were the ones who were in control of the entire situation. We all have choices to make and they made some very poor ones.
  • The unfortunate thing about all of this is that the kids saw this happen. The one I feel sorry for the most is Gia. She will remember this forever and forever is when the little kids are forced to turn into grown-ups too soon sometimes. I truly hope that they work through their problems so that Gia doesn't have to grow up sooner rather than later because of things she's seen. 
  • As for Joe, I will say the only time I saw him engage is when he was defending Teresa and when he thought something was wrong with his father in law. He totally kept his cool which was surprising.
  • As of now, this chic is siding with the Giudices. I follow everyone on twitter from the show and read all of their blogs. The Gorgas keep claiming that we need to just wait to see how it all plays out. But I seriously, doubt I'll be changing my mind especially when they feel the constant need to bash on their own blood. I was ready to come off the couch when Melissa talked about how they pay their bills. Whatever, Teresa and Joe did or didn't do regarding their financial responsibilities are just that...theirs. It is their responsibility and also their embarrassment so I would think that they could at least count on their family to not be part of airing dirty laundry that isn't theirs to air. I'm just sayin!
  • By the way, if you don't read the blogs or watch the videos that Bravo posts you're totally missing out. I converted two buddies of mine just today. It's a major filler for things you may not understand at times.
  • Regarding Kathy, I think she's a bit of an instigator, but I think her family is cute. I loved that she rode her bike to the market, but thought it a bit tacky that all her plants and flowers in the yard looked like they were freshly planted there before the show aired. Some even looked like they were still in the plastic pots just strategically placed so it wouldn't look like they were potted flowers.
  • As for the Lauritas, all you need to know is that Ashley is still an immature brat.
  • The Manzos...oh my favorite family. I loved that they talked about Southern comfort foods and especially loved it when Chris mentioned that Southern people are better at everything. But I disagree with Caroline regarding the Northeast having bullshit on lock. Just because we Southerners aren't as direct as y'all, doesn't mean we don't know how to bullshit. After all the good ole' boy system and bless your heart are phrases that are alive and well in the South. 
  • And as for for Lauren stating that you can't bullshit a bullshitter, I have this to say. Honey, I know. I have a BA in Bullshit and in case y'all are new to the blog, I'm currently getting my JD in it too.
All in all, I'm looking forward to this season. I'm so glad that Danielle is no longer on the show.

Okay people sound off! What did YOU think? Are you Team Giudice or Team Gorga/Wakile? Is the jury still out for you?

Happy Tuesday!
