Live Blogging Real Housewives Of New York Season 4 Episode 2

Woof, tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives Of New York was another rough one. Alex kept sticking up for herself both when she should have and when she should have chilled out. LuAnn showed herself to be the stuck-up mean girl she really is. Ramona was Ramona. Sandy’s okay I guess, I’m still not sure yet. Jill and Kelly have been pretty non existent so far, but I don’t think that will last long. And finally, Sonja kind of sickens me with how full of herself she is. I don’t know if there’s a hero in this season or even a victim to really root for kind of like Bethenny was last season. Ah well, hit the jump to read the live blog.

Live Blogging The Real Housewives Of New York Season 4 Episode 1

After watching the third season of Jersey Shore, I noted that watching reality shows about the same people season after season can be kind of exhausting, especially when the people involved buy into their own hype too much. I think that’s going to be a problem with the fourth season of The Real Housewives Of New York City as well. They lost Bethenny to her own series which is too bad, because now it just feels like a bunch of women (most of which aren’t housewives by the way, but whatever) who hate each other with small factions who hate each other a little bit less. The “on this season of” clip package at the end makes it look like that’s the case throughout the season. I’m not super excited about that, but I’m just going to be live blogging this season and not trying to sum it up. People yelling and fighting with one another isn’t fun for me, but since nothing else is on, I’ll probably watch it for a while. I don’t know if I could make it make more sense than just saying what I did while in the moment. I’ll add time next time so you can play along a little better with reruns.

It’s Official, Danielle’s Off Jersey Housewives

Well, after a full two and a half hours of reunion episodes that promised to reveal who would be leaving Real Housewives of New Jersey permanently, viewers had to find out who it was through Bravo’s The Dish blog: “The reunion was Danielle’s last appearance on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women,” Andy Cohen was quoted as saying on the blog. Wah, wah, real shocker there. I’ve gotta call bullshit again on their decision to leave on a high note after repeatedly playing up the already-existent drama between these women all season. Whatever. Good riddance to crazy ladies. Kick rocks, chick.

Jersey Housewives Season 2 Reunion Part 2

Last week’s episode showcased the first half of the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 2 Reunion which covered about half the season, leading up to the incident at the Brownstone, but tonight’s episode really featured it and then moved on tot he last of the season: the legal trouble between Ashley and Danielle, Dina leaving the show, Caroline and Danielle’s last dinner and Kim G’s involvement in things.

Jersey Housewives Season 2 Reunion Part 1

UPDATE: Now with complete sentences! Sorry, I posted then went right to bed last night. The show took a lot out of me.

This was an incredibly awkward episode with host–and apparently Bravo big wig producer–Andy Cohen trying to fit in lighthearted montages and audience questions while keeping Teresa and Jacqueline from jumping on Danielle both figuratively and literally. The whole thing was super awkward and tense, but pretty much what you’d expect. At least they didn’t break it up into three parts like the New York one last season. This time it was just a few minutes longer. Continue reading Jersey Housewives Season 2 Reunion Part 1

Jersey Housewives “The Heads Of Family Will Roll”

Well, here we are, the big season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey which will feature the supposed final showdown between Caroline and Danielle. Expect a ridiculous amount of drama including Danielle overreacting and bringing a gang of armed criminals to dinner. I’m guessing by the end of this episode–or the upcoming reunions–we’ll know if Danielle’s really off the show or not. Hit the jump for the full live blog!

News Of The Day: Danielle Supposedly Off Jersey Housewives

According to Eonline’s Marc Malkin and his sources, Danielle Staub will not be on The Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who saw the preview for the season finale which will see Caroline asking Danielle for a meet up where it looks like she says that their interactions (between Danielle and the rest of the women) are over. Anyone who’s been reading my live blogs of the show can probably guess that I’m pretty jazzed about this. The woman has been nothing but huge glops of crazy and makes it hard to watch. But, having her not on next season isn’t quite enough, the women–specifically Jacqueline and Teresa–will actually have to stop talking about her to really make a difference. Oh and Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley will have to stop baiting her online. So, we’ll see if this turns out to be real or not and how much Danielle’s really not on the show anymore, because even if she’s not physically there her specter has the potential to hang over and taint the whole next season. Word’s still out as to whether Housewife hopefuls Kim G or Danny will make the cut if Danielle does not, but hopefully Dina will makeĀ  comeback.

Jersey Housewives “Your Naples Are Showing”

Tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey wasn’t all that interesting. I know I’ve been saying that the show would be much better without Danielle, but I’m not sure if spending 75% of an episode showing the Italian bound members of the cast and their families talking to people in a small Naples town that no one’s heard of. The other 25% has Danielle getting the ball rolling on finding her biological mother and, as you might expect, being a total weirdo about the whole thing. Hit the jump for the whole live blog.

Jersey Housewives “The Chanels Of Venice”

Tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey called “The Chanels Of Venice” (yes it’s supposed to be spelled like the store, not channels) was great because it mostly didn’t involve the walking mess that is Danielle. Teresa, Jacqueline and Caroline being their trip to Italy which winds up involving almost all the kids, the couples and their parents. This is the kind of thing that makes me like this show and it had almost zero Danielle drama. Hit the jump for the full live blog. Continue reading Jersey Housewives “The Chanels Of Venice”

Jersey Housewives “Don’t Drink The Holy Water”

We got two things this episode, basically. Teresa’s newest daughter got Christened which brought Dina back to the show as she’s the Godmother. This reminded me of the good old days when the show was fun and Danielle wasn’t SUCH a big deal. I miss Dina. The other section of the show featured the dissolution of Danielle and Kim G’s friendship. Hit the jump if you want the full live blog. Continue reading Jersey Housewives “Don’t Drink The Holy Water”
