On BH, no friend of housewives, or husbands. I don't understand why they are on it, though they have more class than the NJ house husbands do. I just think it's unnecessary.

Melissa also is trying to make herself come across as the "good one." So this arrest does show part of her character.

Stealing is stealing and she was an adult! I'm sure she has done worse, but hasn't been caught.

The only thing I can think of is the husbands really did have much larger roles this season????

Plus this season was really focused on families not just the ladies.

Filler to stretch the season out to as many episodes as possible? It seems like it has went on forever.

Other seasons have had the husbands come on the reunion also. I remember BH did, because they talked to Lisa's hubby about the drama with that guy who was living in their house. They also talked with all the hubby's I remember the viewers voted Kyles hubby the most handsome and he was embarrassed.

I think with NJ they husbands were such a big part of it, especially Joe Gorga since he is Tres sister.

You filthy dirt bag, a piece of jewelry wouldn't work for any self-respecting woman for being called that word. You just married a twisted moron who excepts your behavior and turns a blind eye to it.
Ridiculous....all the jewelry in the world wouldn't make what he did ok. He'd be history.

I don't think she bullied her either. Even Andy said just because you don't agree with someone, it doesn't make you a bully.

As to why Melissa went on the show, I can only guess it was to promote her singing career. I think most of the housewives have an alterior motive, like a singing career, cook books, self help books, make-up lines, clothes lines etc. Even Andy mentioned something about how it is fine that they all are using the show to their advantage.

Hmmmm......maybe Teresa DOESN'T understand the word "opportunist!!"
Clearly someone else called Melissa an opportunist because there is NO way Teresa would come up with that on her own. And frankly, they are ALL using it as an opportunity: selling books, a dessert line, singing, whatever....they are ALL doing it not just Melissa. Teresa is mad because she isn't the only one in that family that's in the spotlight.

Did you all hear how there is a warrant out for Melissa's arrest in Florida where she shoplifted? She stole about 1,000 dollars worth of merchandise I believe. Looks like she is no angel like she claims to be, and is no victim. What a drama queen, she is such a great actress.
We must have different ideas of what bullying is because I didn't see that happening at all.

As for the shoplifting, that's wrong....but I'm hoping she's a different person now!!

Applying the term "bullying" to Teresa's "situation" is a mis representation of the true definition of bullying.

Are you saying that playing the victim and shoplifting 15 years ago have something in common? I'm pretty sure that shoplifting doesn't necessarily make you a gold digger. I do think shoplifting is pathetic.

I agree

Andy isn't a psychologist and is part of the problem. He enjoys the victim/bully role these HW shows have taken.

And frankly, they are ALL using it as an opportunity: selling books, a dessert line, singing, whatever....they are ALL doing it not just Melissa. Teresa is mad because she isn't the only one in that family that's in the spotlight.

Melissa has admitted that she hated Teresa before coming onto the show. This isn't only a tv show, it's Teresa's work place. You wouldn't have a problem with a relative that hates you coming to your place of employment? It was well known by Melissa's sisters on forums that Melissa and Kathy were hired only to bring down Teresa. They had been denied on the show for 3 years. I would say, the Marco sisters knew what they were talking about. The very first episode Joey calls his sister garbage for saying congratulations and the Marco sisters tell Joey they are his real sisters. There is a huge difference in affording your relatives an opportunity vs your relatives taking an opportunity to bring you down.

very true

Since Teresa sucks at thinking on her feet, I'll name two..........gang up on the back porch at Jacquelines where Caroline just happened to show up and the Napa trip. Go back and watch the episodes where everytime one of the ladies say they are going to get along with Teresa, Caroline has a smart remark to show intimidation to them not to be friends with Teresa. Intimidation isn't just to that person, it's intimidating others to act on your behave to belittle someone. Ooops, the expert Andy forgot to mention that one and that's from a psychology book



Are you saying that playing the victim and shoplifting 15 years ago have something in common? I'm pretty sure that shoplifting doesn't necessarily make you a gold digger. I do think shoplifting is pathetic.

She certainly does!!!
I am one that is a firm believer after listening to her stories that she did settle for Joey because he promised her the big house, money etc. Her sights were on someone else. Oh and btw, how could she only work at Lookers for 1 day or 1 week as she said when she showed wage stubs for 9 months to prove she was a bartender and not a "dancer"? Pretty hard to be a teacher with a warrant on you.

I haven't made it through the rest of the thread, so this may have been already said, but I saw part of one episode and it was super clear to me that the main characters weren't newcomers out of the Amish or Old Order Mennonite communities because most of them have Philadelphia/mid-Atlantic accents. The Amish have a very different accent and ways of speaking. That show is ridiculously phony.

We have finally come to the end...just kidding, there is a lost footage episode next week. Seriously? How much longer can they drag this out!

Thoughts on the reunion? I'm glad it's over because watching it stresses me out.

My favorite part was when Jackie started yapping and Theresa got up and started screaming....I paused then watched it it in slow-motion...crazy!!

I thought Teresa was going to have an aneurism. Holy heck! She freaked.
I honestly feel sorry for her. It's obvious that she is so wrapped up in herself that she truly doesn't see that she is the one causing all the trouble surrounding her and thinks she is a victim. I think she needs mental help.

Jacquelin's husband is amazing!

This is *definitely* a Jersey thing. I grew up in NJ and everyone I know, including my family, no matter how old we are, call our our parents Mommy and Daddy.
