What Bravo Tried to Hide About Teresa Giudice on the 'RHONJ' Premiere (VIDEO)

Last night on reality television, the theme was MOCKERY. We saw all sorts, from the vicious to the gentle to the clinical. From the season 6 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to season 9, episode 13 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians to episode 4 of Botched, the differences were dramatic. Do you think Bravo soft-soaped Teresa and Joe Giudice too much, given their upcoming fraud sentencing? In today's exclusive video below, I break down exactly what we did and didn't see on all three shows.

In addition to the Giudice drama, we have THREE new Housewives to learn about, plus the return of Dina Manzo. In the video, I explain what Amber Marchese has to do with Danielle Staub, as well as what we may see in future episodes with the wonder-twins, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, and Teresa's husband Rino. With all the ladies, continuing and new, there are different levels of editorial mockery.

Over on E!, we've got mockery of a completely different nature, as the entire family is concerned about the increasingly erratic behavior of Khloe Kardashian. However, there's a very good reason why Khloe will never really, truly look bad. Know why? I give you my take below.

Finally, on Botched, the good doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif take on three new cases, one of which hits levels of mockery we have not yet seen on this series. In addition, there's some interesting production going on. When one doctor doesn't perform any of the surgery on an episode, how do you integrate him? All this and more in today's episode; watch now!
