While Melissa Gorga wasn’t directly involved in Teresa VS Jacqueline round 1 on Sunday night’s RHONJ, her husband managed to be a major source of conflict between the two. Both Teresa and Jacqueline claim that Joe warned them not to trust each other, and rather than forget about it and move on like Teresa wanted to, Jacqueline got him on the phone.
In scenes for next week’s episode, Melissa is seen with Jacqueline, and she doesn’t seem happy with her for involving Joe in her drama with Teresa. In this week’s Bravo Blog Melissa touched on the heartfelt, family moments in this week’s episode, and gushed how proud she was to see her kids walk in New York Fashion week. While she chose to stay mum on the drama, she tells us we will see how she feels next week; it’s clear that she sided with Teresa on this one, and after watching the episode I’m sure she was happy with that decision!
This week’s episode was enlightening for me. I enjoyed watching all of our children and seeing the real struggles and proud moments every parent goes through. We really do have the best kids.
Watching Antonia, Gino and Joey totally rock the runway for fashion week was such a great moment to relive. Being in the spotlight up on that runway takes a lot of courage, and they all did amazing and looked so adorable. I am very proud of them, especially Gino, who is more on the shy side. Antonia is a natural and Joey has so much swagger. He was born with it!
It meant a lot to have Zia Teresa and Milania there to cheer on and support the kids. And how cute was little Joey at dinner? He truly is the sweetest little boy. My kids are all heart, they feel the truth, and they really felt the love that night as you could see at dinner.
I really loved watching Dolores and Siggy’s family dynamics. Their kids are older that mine, and it’s refreshing and a little scary to think that all too soon I may be dealing with what they are going through. Siggy and Sophie’s struggle over her cell phone is something that I think almost every parent can relate to. God bless her for putting her foot down. I will probably be doing the same thing with Antonia within the next couple of years. I also have to say how impressive Dolores’ daughter, Gabby, is. She is so smart and compassionate, and I think pursuing veterinary medicine is a perfect fit. Dolores has a great family and her son Frankie is going to be a total heartbreaker.
Finally, Teresa’s dinner at Jacqueline’s house… I’ve always heard two sides of the story of what happened that night and watching this episode gave me a lot of clarity on what was actually said. I’m not going to address it now as you will soon find out in next week’s episode what my true feelings are.
Thanks for watching. Until next week…
Lots of love always,
