The Real Housewives of New Jersey: The Return of Dina Manzo

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back from a little hiatus and let’s just say that when we last saw these lovely ladies, things were getting crazy. Teresa Giudice was screaming. Caroline Manzo was crying. Jacqueline Laurita was…sleeping.

These women were all about ready to rip each other’s heads off (and the husbands got in on it too!). We catch back up with the women after they have returned to Jersey. Everyone is back to their normal lives and getting ready for the first day of school, which turns chaotic for everyone because Milania Giudice is a diva.

After the kids have gotten on the bus to school, each couple rehashes the madness that was Napa Valley. Teresa decides that her relationship with Caroline is over, but she will remain cordial. Teresa tries to talk to Joe Giudice but he is ridiculously rude and superficial. He’s constantly making remarks about the other women’s looks. Unfortunately, Teresa agrees with him and trusts the man who is clearly cheating on her.

Melissa Gorga heads over to Jacqueline house to ask her if she really was sleeping during the whole Caroline/Teresa fight. She kind of admits that she wasn’t sleeping but trying to stay out of the whole fiasco. She figured it was better to just let them hash it out and do their own thing. What I really wanted Melissa to ask Jacqueline was where she got that jean vest. Super cute. Meanwhile Teresa goes over to Kathy’s house to talk about Napa (because none of them can ever let go of anything).

    Dina was the only mildly attractive woman to ever be a Real Housewife. That said, she has the typical RH resume: bitter ex-husband, kids not usable for exploitation, rumors of a marriage that is not as advertised (he either has a mistress or is gay or both), a nightmare of a family (exhibit: Manzo), etc.
    At least she raises money for charity. That is the nicest thing I can say about a RH. And it will probably turn out that she was even worse but got out before more InStyle interviews could be done.
    Check that: they are all nightmares. Keep up the good work, “ladies.”

    Dina Manzo seemed to be the one
    person on “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” who wasn’t completely crazy. I really
    liked this show when it first aired, but it has changed so much I’m not sure
    what to think. I missed the latest episode of “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” because
    of my new work schedule at Dish. I like to check out the recaps, and watch the
    episodes on my Hopper when my shift ends. I hope the season finale will help
    end some of the craziness. I’m ready for the reunion as the drama continues,
    and I won’t have to worry about using up much of my 2,000 hours of recording
    space.
