Dina Manzo is returning to "Real Housewives of New Jersey." The reality star tweeted about her return to the Bravo series.
Bravo declined to comment on the story. Dina was one of the original cast members of "Real Housewives of New Jersey." She
There's an old saying that goes "you can't get blood from a stone ... and you can't get a two-part reunion out of happiness and smiles."
Annnd we're back at the aptly named Moxie Salon ("a force of character, determination or nerve") where Teresa is summoning all of hers to shut Penny down. "You wanted to destroy [Melissa], not me," Penny reiterates.
We open with Melissa and Joe in the bathroom, which is a fitting setting for all the sh-- they're talking. They've got a really bad taste in their mouths -- and this time, it's actually not from the self-tanner they ingest.
Though Teresa obviously orchestrated a hot mess of rumors and lies, Penny says that it's all over now. "She asked me to squash it" she says seriously, as if this is her day job and she's handing in her final report.
On the last night of the trip, alcohol (the ultimate therapist) helps convince the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" gang that they had a great time.
The group is off to their "horse healing." I'm picturing a pony dressed up in a saucy Dr. Quinn Medicine Stallion outfit, but the session is a lot less sexy.
Seeing the New Jersey "Housewives" playing nice feels like déjà vu all over again.
Teresa informs Kim D. that she's in a "good place" with Melissa, and that the night will go well. Hot damn, that girl has an incredible talent for foreshadowing in bad eyeshadow.
Jacqueline is obsessed with changing her body, but has no regard for her overall well-being. If anything needs to be cut out of poor Jacqueline, it's not excess skin: It's the darkness and pain that has taken over her mind and clouded her vision.
Find out how it all plays out by tuning in to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" every Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo. Jacqueline
The speed at which these women are moving to fix things could break your neck ... or at least dislodge your extensions. Is any of this genuine, and how will they feel when their drunken promises fade into awkward hangovers?
Joe grabs Teresa's face and kisses it voraciously, like a starving man finally being handed a steak. Sobs rack his body and suddenly he's heaving, totally giving himself over to the emotion and crying into her face and clothes and hair like a small child.
Gorga throws all two feet of his body at Giudice, and they're officially in the shortest fight ever. Don't get me wrong, it lasts a pretty decent amount of time ... I just mean it's like watching champs at the International Stunted Growth Invitational flail their T-Rex arms about with gusto.
Kim D. and her posse of hags walk in and Rich motions for her to sit right down in the lion's den. "I heard about your little outing," Melissa tells her calmly. "[Jan] doesn't like you anymore, and I have not done anything wrong," Kim D. quickly says in defense of herself.
This week we open in Melissa's home, where she's at the computer pretending that she's not actually dictating the contents of her book to a ghost writer.
Though Teresa tries to put up a strong front, it's obvious that the year of silence has been painful. She finally confronts Joe ... by standing over him as he gets ready to bench press. Now, the brother she hasn't seen in oh-so-long is literally talking to her lady garden.
"There's no need to run home to my brother and make it bigger than it is," Teresa says in her interview. Note how she says "my brother" and not "her husband." Teresa still feels like she has ownership over Joe, and she views Melissa as her replacement and mortal enemy.
As Teresa speaks, Caroline dusts off her infamous head tilt, which is often followed by other signature gestures, such as "wild arms" and "terrifying low voice of death." As Teresa stumbles through her side of the story, Caroline rocks out all her moves.
