This week it was reported Teresa Checks In fell short of expected viewers, and many were disappointed in the way the Giudice girls were portrayed. Jim strongly agrees with that opinion and for some reason bit the hand that fed him, to bash Bravo as well.
“Bravo’s decision to air “Teresa Checks in” under the RHONJ franchise denigrates the show and hurts all associated. The original show was tongue & cheek fun, a guilty pleasure, and now it is morphing into a dark endorsement of criminal behavior and exploitation of children.”
Jim’s Bravo bashing didn’t stop there. He calls out the use of minors to score sympathy for their felon parents.
“Does Bravo really want us to buy, they are not paying for outfits, roses, hair & makeup for those children? It is obvious that they are “carefully scripting” the message from those kids, in an attempt to make us empathize with two felons, who have no remorse for their crimes.”
“Looks like Andy’s belief that “Teresa is RHONJ” has been shattered. Maybe he will make GIA the new housewife, give her $1 million salary, rent a mansion, and give her an intro.”
“It is tragic. Bravo is glorifying a family living in a mansion, eating off $60,000 Gucci plates and wearing lavish clothes, all as a result of money obtained illegally. There are good, honest, law-abiding people struggling out there, and this is the lifestyle they endorse…pathetic.”
Now things really get intense when Jim asks viewers to speak up, and help him get sponsors to realize they are supporting criminals and falling ratings.
“I hope sponsors pull endorsements & people tune out. Send Andy a message and tell Bravo and all of them that RHONJ is about guilty pleasures, not criminals.”
This can’t be considered an “interview” all Jim did was talk and bash Bravo and the Giudice family. Amber always tries to act like she supports Teresa but she clearly does not if her husband is acting out like this, AGAIN.
Jim seemed angrier at Bravo then at the Giudice family. Is this a hint that Amber might not be hearing anything about season 7 of RHONJ? What do you think about Jim going on ANOTHER rant? How do you feel about Bravo’s representation of the Giudice girls?
