I didn’t watch Season 1 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey because I was taking a stand against the real housewives reality shows because I hated the OC housewives. Once I started watching Season 2 of NJ I loved it and changed my mind about the whole thing. That’s how good these ladies were, they converted me.
After all of the Danielle drama I decided that season 2 was enough drama for me and that I wouldn’t watch it again. They have already had a few episodes that I haven’t watched but this morning I got my Hulu email with new shows and episode 1 of the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was in there so I thought what the heck, I’ll check it out.
Edit: In the past it has taken Hulu a few weeks to show the first episode of the Bravo shows so I was wrong, they haven’t had a few episodes already.
I’m not surprised that there would be as much drama as there was but I wasn’t expecting it would come from Teresa’s Brother Joe. I mean, I don’t know him but I kind of figured that if there was going to be some drama it would have come from his wife, not him. I mean, the show isn’t about the husbands, it’s about the wives. It seems like he has hijacked the show on the very first episode and I don’t really care to see the rest of the season because of him.
All he did in the entire episode was bitch and complain like a spoiled little brat about how his sister ignores him. Oh boo freakin’ hoo, grow up! He sat at the table at the reception at his baby boys christening whining and complaining about his sister. It’s your son’s day, not yours or your sisters, give it a rest and enjoy yourself, don’t sit there bitching about your sister when you should be focusing all of your energy on your son.
It’s too bad I won’t be watching it because I really love the Manzo’s and Teresa and Jacqueline and I really would have liked to see them in this new season. I follow most of them on Twitter, Albie, Chris, Caroline and Teresa, I even follow Danielle lol. I’ve even tried responding to some of the things that Albie and Chris tweet but have gotten no response which isn’t surprising even though Kyle Richards used to tweet me back all the time but whatever.
So, no more housewives for me, I’m done. I like some of the people on the show, I just can’t handle the drama emotionally, you know? It breaks my heart to see these people being verbally and physically abusive with each other. I know its real life but why does real life have to be so violent?
I think the reason it hurts me so much to watch is because that is how my childhood was and I hated every second of it so I have taken a stand against violence by not inviting it into my life and by watching these violent people on tv, it’s inviting it in and I just have to kick it out. I still love the people, I just don’t want to see them beat each other up every week.
