'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Reunion Part I Recap: Teresa & Melissa Have Officially Become Boring

teresa giudiceRound one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion has concluded, and as suspected, it was a cat-fightapoolza between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga; and teeny-tiny cameos by Jacqueline Laurita; Caroline Manzo; and Kathy Wakile, who I think said eight sentences.

Although it seemed like things ended on a positive note between Tre and Melissa this season, come on, guys. We all knew better, right? These ladies will be frenemy-in-laws 'til the day one of them poisons the other's pinot grigio.

And if I may be so frank, I'd like to say that, as a storyline, it's getting kinda old. Good god, enouuugh alreaddddy.

It was as if nothing happened! No Arizona retreat with horse hooves. No Dr. V. I mean, no, the reunion wasn't as cantankerous and, well, insane as it was last year. But the whole time, it was tit for tat with Teresa and Melissa. The same arguments over and over and over again. Zzzzzz. They didn't, for a single nanosecond, seem like they liked each other. Not even a little. In fact, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga seemed to get along better than their wives.

RHONJ has pretty much become The Melissa and Teresa Show. And, I've gotta be honest here, I'm kinda done, because every week is a repeat. There needs to be a new housewife thrown into the mix, or a talking cat, or something to mix things up. The best part of the reunion, for me, was when Melissa got seeeeriously defensive when people accused her and Teresa of being the Bobbsey Twins. I all but did a spit take with m'vino when she said that she thinks the reason she and Teresa butt heads is because "inside they're so different." Somebody can't be that unaware ... can they?

Anyway. Overall, I give this reunion two thumbs and four paws down. Both my shih tzu and I thought it was a big, fat yawn factory. I literally don't think I can take five more minutes of footage that focuses on Teresa and Melissa, AKA the Bickersons. Until part two of the recap. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit?

What do you think of Teresa and Melissa's arguing?

I totally agree! And Andy needs to be replaced. He is so petty and snarky and never gets control.

I completely agree!!! I couldn't even watch it all. It was so boring and this story line is beyond old and tired. They need some new wives!

Rachael Devon Zollman

So over New Jersey, the sister in laws are driving me nuts, I say give Rosie her own show, and i loved the clips with Rosie and Joe Too funny

Janet Ramirez Korsak

I agree 100%, these two need to give it up. They love the drama AND the back and forth. Melissa is becoming evil. Caroline was right when she said Tre & Mel are so much alike. Melissa hates that, it must be difficult to look at yourself.

If I was Melissa and had to put up with Teresa's 2 faced lying shit all the time I would do more than become Evil !!!! Joe and Melissa are happy and that should be all that matters to Teresa that her brother is happy... They have built thier own family and that should be good enough but Teresa is jealous of that because her Joe is a Cheater and an ASS ... her calling her a CU*T on National TV while talking to another woman ( cause that was no man he was groaning on the phone in the Nappa )....

  We could go back and forth forever about Tre and Melissa.I'm confused about Caroline and family having their own show.I'm so bored with her telling everyone how to live.They also are the most boring people on the show.I'd like to see the " Rosie and Joe show"  now they are funny.
