'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Recap: Zen Things I Hate About You

9/9/2013 10:37am EDT
The gang is still in Arizona for their cleansing retreat that’s supposed to be Melissa’s birthday party for a third episode, and it’s just finally getting dramatic. Caroline, not prompted by an unseen Bravo executive or anything, asks the room if they’re all happy with each other and their relationships. Joe Gorga decides to lay it all out.

He tells Teresa in front of everyone what he and Melissa think she’s been up to with Penny, and explodes.

Flash backward 12 hours earlier.

It’s the morning of Melissa’s birthday, and she’s enjoying some cuddle-action with her husband in bed when Teres...

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Recap: Horse Whisper to a Scream

9/2/2013 12:46pm EDT
Because Andy Cohen owes a favor to the guy who runs this resort, the gang is in Arizona for another episode of cleansing and healing in the Arizona sun. Poor birthday girl Melissa didn’t sign up for this; she begs Joe for poolside cocktails when he tells her they’re going on a special horseback riding exercise. Love and light, girl.

Turns out, they’re not riding the horses. You can see Melissa dying inside. It’s a horse therapy exercise with a gruff cowboy named Wyatt, who isn’t taking nonsense from anyone. He explains that horses can pick up on your energy and authenticity (your genuine n...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: Children Of The Scorned

8/12/2013 10:29am EDT
Last week’s discussion (fight? confrontation?) between Jacqueline and Teresa wraps up as the ladies get to the real meat of the problem: their incessant need to tweet every time they’re upset with each other instead of confronting their problems directly. But they agree to get over it, essentially, and move forward in their relationship in a new way. They’ll be civil – and maybe one day, they’ll be friends again.

Jacqueline and Kathy hit up a lingerie store later on to discuss her reconciliation with Teresa, and she reveals that she’s heading to Beverly Hills soon to get a tummy tuck and h...

8/5/2013 10:25am EDT
In the wake of the most restorative bonding retreat in the history of trust building, all is calm and well in Franklin Lakes. Melissa goes to visit Joe with their sons at one of his construction sites, when he gives her some good news – Sizzle Tans wants the couple to appear on a series of billboards for the company.

Since Teresa was the star of a Sizzle Tans commercial several years ago, Melissa declines the offer so she won’t have something to fight about with her sister-in-law, and lets her husband star in the ad by himself. Are we all maturing already?

Things are so good, that Teresa ...

Teresa and Joe Giudice
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are facing bigtime criminal charges and face over 30 years in prison each if they're convicted.

The reality stars have been hit with a 39-count indictment from federal prosecutors, including tax evasion and bank, mail and wire fraud.

Federal prosecutors said that the couple created pay stubs and tax forms from...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: On Thin Giud-Ice

7/29/2013 11:27am EDT
The tearful reconciliation between Joe and Teresa continues, thanks to blessed angel therapist Dr. V, with more talking and negotiation. The siblings absolutely have to get everything off their chests if they really want to move on. Otherwise this whole ordeal was a bust. Send in Melissa.

Melissa is summoned, albeit hesitantly, and she tells Teresa exactly why she feels so betrayed; even if Teresa doesn’t directly say terrible things about her sister-in-law, she is always conveniently in the room when they’re being said. If she truly cared about Melissa and didn’t wish her ill, she would s...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: When Joes Collide

7/15/2013 10:20am EDT
The key to a great episode of any Real Housewives franchise is to get the women out of town, in close quarters, to a luxury resort location where they are unable to escape. This episode of RHONJ is no exception.

The time came for Teresa’s trust-building relationship retreat, and her family geared up to inevitably throw down for the cameras. Tensions were running high, especially after last week’s altercation with Kim D and Melissa’s former best friend, Jan. Teresa is going into the retreat unaware that the others hate her/blame her for this incident.

As Richie says before they hit the roa...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: Drinking With The Enemy

7/8/2013 10:21am EDT
Kathy decided to accept her test kitchen from her awful 1950s husband so she can get some work done in peace. In this oasis, she gets to work on cannoli recipes, and invite her friends Caroline, Jacqueline and Rosie over for gossip and taste-testing without Richie breathing down her neck. Rosie delights the ladies with the tale of her meeting with Teresa, and also floats the possibility of them all accompanying her on their “stress retreat.” That would be a firm “no” from all parties.

Teresa, once again reminds the cameras that her father is very ill, and that her parents and brother are t...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: Everything Is Coming Up Rosie

7/1/2013 11:36am EDT
Grab your popcorn, because the aftermath of last week’s gym fight is about to begin.

Joe storms home after duking it out with Teresa to tell his wife all about the incident. But before he can even get to the good details, he discovers that the part about Melissa tweeting something catty to Teresa was true, and it makes him flip out. In a way, he has a point. He argues that he’s out there trying to defend her, while she’s trying to give Teresa a taste of her own medicine. Teresa may be wrong, but Melissa shouldn’t stoop to her level.

Melissa has her own fair point, which is that Teresa is ...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: Gym Rats

6/24/2013 11:12am EDT
Since nothing else in the entire world is happening at all, the Gorgas and the Giudices are still arguing about when Melissa went to visit her father-in-law in the hospital. The general consensus is: yes, Melissa went to the hospital, but Teresa is upset that she waited four days to do so. Melissa is a rational human being who didn’t want to give her gravely ill, elderly father-in-law pneumonia, so she didn’t go right away. Semantics.

Kathy is busy being boring and talking to Rosie and her mother about the same situation. She never went to see her uncle in the hospital because of her own f...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: It's My Party And I'll Fight If I Want To

6/17/2013 12:25pm EDT
Teresa is channeling her rage into a new hobby: working out in neon spandex. She tells her trainer that she’s working on planning Gia’s 12th birthday party. It’s the first co-ed birthday event, and she’s not looking forward to having boys in the picture. She’s not sure if Joe and Melissa are going to attend.

Jacqueline has found through her research that autistic children could benefit through a hyperbaric chamber bed, so that’s what they buy for Nicholas. Joe sees Jacqueline playing in this giant chamber with her son, and speaks in his Talking Head about how petty his problems are with hi...

6/10/2013 1:17pm EDT
If anything ever happens to Teresa Giudice, Milania will step right in and take her place. Teresa is doing her best to help the girls understand the importance of sisterhood and loving one another, but they’re not quite getting the message. Milania is obviously the star of the exchange, mimicking her mother’s speech as they eat dinner and make cards for their sick grandfather. God bless us everyone.

Joe and Melissa are still trying to sell the house that they promised to sell during the last reunion special to get away from Teresa. Blame the economy. The problem is that they’re asking for ...

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Recap: Garden State of Emergency

6/3/2013 11:15am EDT
The fifth season for Real Housewives of New Jersey opens on a somber note in November 2012, as all the women deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in their own way. Most of the families have houses down at the Jersey shore, and the wrath of the storm has all but destroyed their vacation homes. Fortunately, they all have enough humility to recognize onscreen that some people can’t go home to unaffected houses, as they live at the shore full time.

Now, you would think that a major disaster would bring the women together and make them realize that their normal fighting is petty, and sens...

When the current baktun of the Mayan calendar comes to a close on December 21, 2012, many prophecies say the world will end.

Mind you, this prophecy comes from a race of people who couldn't predict their own civilization's end, so how credible are they in predicting the end of the world in our time?

The sun will rise and life will probably go on as usual tomorrow, but for now we've come up with a list of celebrities that -- if the world does end -- you won't miss.

In Punta the drama continues as Teresa continues to lament over Kathy’s comments that were taken out of context. It looks like Teresa is looking for a fight and wants to continue to hold a grudge against her saintly cousin. Kathy tries to reiterate to the group that her comment was not even aimed at Teresa but just how she felt in general and the group tells her not to worry, they know what she meant.

What To Watch: Viewers Finally Learn Which ‘Glee’ Cast Member They Will Say Goodbye To Forever (May 15-21, 2011)

5/15/2011 11:15am EDT
The number one thing you need to watch this week is “Glee” because after months of speculation, viewers will finally find out which cast member they will say goodbye to forever. That’s right; in case you haven’t heard, one of McKinley High’s own will face an unexpected loss. Cast and crew have been tight-lipped about who is dying, but viewer guesses include Sue’s sister, Puck and Quinn’s daughter, or Kurt’s dad. Of course, this doesn’t mean it couldn’t be one of the regular cast members; ugh, I cringed at the thought!
