The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Bras, Fat Jokes And Tantrums

May 20, 2012 08:28 PM by Megan Thompson


The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is all new tonight on Bravo. Jacqueline holds a field day competition at her house for the entire gang.  Can all the women put aside their differences to play nice for just one day?  Keep reading for all the details from tonight’s RHONJ.

Teresa is filling Juicy Joe in about the whole pool party fight with her brother.  Immediately, Joe starts screaming/mumbling profanities at Teresa for even talking to her brother.  “Those people are jealous, no good idiots.   When I say something you fucking listen and shut up,” Joe yells at Teresa. Wow!  Of course, Teresa makes up some lame excuse for her husband’s trashy behavior.  Joe then lets Teresa know that if she even tries to get him around her family again, he will leave her.  Is that a threat or a promise?

Joe Gorga is at his happy place…the gym.  I guess it makes it manlier to have a deep conversation at a meathead gym.  Joe admits to Rich that he feels guilty for calling his sister a bitch at the pool party. 

Lauren goes golfing with daddy to talk about her weight issues.  “Lauren is Albert in a dress,” Caroline tells the cameras. Gosh this poor girl! What is Caroline doing to her daughter?  Give the poor girl a break!  Lauren tells her dad it’s nice to know that her weight problems come from her dad. Just when you think dad is the supportive one, he tells the cameras, “I was silently happy that in her high school years, she was the chubby girl.”  Just what every daughter wants their dad to say about them.  But then Caroline has to share just one more very embarrassing story to millions of viewers about their poor chubby daughter, her prom story.  No one asked Lauren to the prom, so her brother had to take her! This is what has driven Lauren to live on only egg white shakes. 

Aunt Jacqueline takes Lauren shopping for some workout clothes for field day.  “I would like to look like bones, I want to look like a lollipop,” Lauren tells Jacqueline.  Great job parents!  Jacqueline just likes hanging out with Lauren, because her daughter is such a train wreck. 

Gia has convinced her mom to take her bra shopping.  Teresa can’t stop laughing and embarrassing her daughter in the store.  Just like mommy, Gia picks out a padded bra.  “There is nothing there,” Teresa laughs at Gia.  Besides bras, the mother and daughter talk about periods. Then Teresa shares that  it’s not cool with the old school Italian’s to wear tampons until you are married. 

It’s the day of the big field day competition.  Jacqueline is hoping that all the competition will be good for the couples.  Caroline’s plan is to get totally wasted, so she can make it through the day.  The Gorgas show up and Melissa has her booty shorts on.  Literally, her butt is hanging out of her shorts. Melissa tells the ladies that there shouldn’t be any drama, because Joe sent Teresa a text and apologized to her.  Jacqueline is suspicious confused because Teresa told her that she never heard anything from Joe. 

It’s the red team versus the blue team in this field day competition.  Albie and Chris are captains and choose the teams.  Joe Gorga and Teresa end up on the same side, for once! Tug-of-war is the first event and the blue team wins.  The potato sack race is next and again the blue team wins. Gia makes a big stink that the blue team is cheating and she breaks down in tears.  “You’re a cheater,” Gia yells at her uncle Joe.  Jacqueline tries to talk to Ms. Gia, but she isn’t having it!  “Children learn what they live,” Caroline tells the cameras. 

Finally Teresa comes into the room to see what is going on.  Gia is crying to Teresa saying that Jacqueline and Caroline were torturing her.  “Nobody has ever done this to me before,” Gia is sobbing.  Teresa tells the women to lay off her child, which ticks Caroline off.  Immediately, Jacqueline apologizes to Teresa.  Then Teresa admits that she would rather be at the Jersey shore, which pisses Jacqueline off.

    Isn’t it fun to watch dysfunctional suburban folks crash and burn on national TV? I don’t think Teresa has any clue that she is raising her little Gia to be the perfect brat and heir to all the problems that come with it in the years ahead. Horrible parenting documented by the cameras’ eye weeknights on Bravo-TV!~

    Child psychologists around the country can use the “poor loser” tantrum of Theresa’s first-born as a case of “like mother/like daugher” or that the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. Wait until she is 16 or 18. This poor girl needs intervention therapy. Dr. Drew and Dr. Phil could have a heyday with this clan, enough material for a year or more. Hope they are saving up for a decade or more of professional visits. But, that’s another show. (At least,your family seems normal, now)….

    My sister and I never behaved the way Gia did in anybodys home or spoke to any adult the way she did…If we did neither one of us would be able to sit down for a week.The excuse about Gia’s at that,what crap. Both her and Milania are spoiled brat’s..Just like their mother.Her brothers children are well behaved.

    I thought Gia was the cutest little girl until last night. OMG What a nightmare this child was. How disrespectful!!! Teresa should get a mother of the year award for her wonderful child raising skills. Instead of worrying about her brother’s wife leaving him for a richer man, Teresa should worry about taking some time to teach some manners to her children.

    Caroline is rewriting history to say she has always been tiny. A couple of years ago she was fat. She has slimmed down but is not tiny. Alot of heavy girls go to prom. But Lauren acts like Caroline so I could see why she was not invited.

    Gia should not have thrown her fit and my kids never did either. But my kids also never heard rumors of their dad cheating on their mom. Nor were they subjected to grown women and men attacking anyone in the family. Caroline has raised 3 worthless kids to be worthless adults. They are rude and make fun of and talk about others to their mothers laughter. jac throws her child out of the house. Ashley is as bad as Lauren to defend their moms to try to make them love them. They just love sons and both are lousy mothers.

    Joe Gorga tells his side of the story to 10 year old Gia. Maybe next week, Teresa should talk to Joe’s kids in private about their feud. What is the difference? If anyone read about Joe Gorgas past it might give some insight to some people’s dislike of him. I think Joe Giu is crazy for allowing him around their children.

    Absolutely disgusting to watch as Theresa tells Carolyn and Jacquline not to get involved with her spoiled little brat, Gia. I’ve watched this show all four years and am rethinking watching it in the future. I would have picked that nasty acting little snot up, apologized to the adults who attempted to help her, and driven home. I then would get the yellow pages out to see if I could find a therapist who might tolerate Gia. The kid is her mother all over again…only she will be much worse.

    While I already have a growing distaste for Theresa…this show just sealed the deal…What a horrible role-model, horrible parenting skills they both have. Those girls are going to be little monsters..Its almost to a point I can barely stand to watch this show anymore…just simply because of Theresa & Joe G.–take note Bravo..people are fed up with them!

    GIA is the workst child they have on any tv show.Just 2 grown and ugly. She talks any kind of way a bra a period how awful. I didn’t know that itallians was so prejudice toward other races especially black. They need to take Teressa and joe off they talk so nasty and with their children listening.
