of insight into the job of a first responder. The only thing that party did was give chicks a poor excuse to dress slutty and give the dudes an excuse to get drunk. But, I digress…
Leading up to the party, the ladies fill Teresa Guidice in on the fact that Jim doesn’t want to be around her husband. Old Teresa would have flipped. New Teresa was like it ain’t no skin off my back. Nice to see her take the high road in this situation. I guess her legal battles are giving her a new
perspective on what to fight for and what to let go. It’s interesting how she and Joe are pretty unmoved by the whole thing but everyone else gets pretty fired up about it.
The party- Teresa and Nicole basically fill everyone at the party about the situation with Amber. To be honest, I didn’t think what she said was that big of a deal. Teresa, if you aren’t a home wrecker then tell everyone and that’s it keep it moving. It just seemed like a really stupid comment to get so
worked up over, but I guess being new to the show they wanted to put it out there that they don’t take no crap.
Amber and Jim arrive and Jim is very friendly and kind to both the Guidice’s. Amber greets twin Teresa and there is a very cold reception. Amber, Teresa, Nicole and Melissa gather to have a confrontation. It seemed like it was Amber’s intention to step aside and have the conversation (the more mature thing to do) but the twins wanted an audience so they just started in right away. There is immediate hair pulling and Amber yells out, "this is why he won’t marry you.” Amber also states that she never made the homewrecker comment… and as she is being pulled away by Jim she yells, “I hope you are happy Melissa.” OUCH! I really thought it was messed up how Melissa basically set the stage for this
blow out and then just let it all get to that point. She, from my perspective is just as guilty for perpetuating the situation. Jim and Amber make their way upstairs and Amber heads right for the door while Jim dramatically puts a ball of hair on the counter in front of Bobby. Reno jumps right into the mix and tells Jim he is a “jerk off.” Joe Gorga questions him and Jim pathetically tries to explain things but in the end he says “I work with the same prosecutor that is charging your brother in law
you dumb F.” End scene. Next week the war battles on and it appears that is going to be everyone versus Amber.
Other cute tidbits: I thought Amber and Jim’s kids in the
commercial were adorable.
Dina meets the young guy Teresa wants to set her up with and is
embarrassed that she dressed in scrubs instead of something more revealing. She
awkwardly tries to handle the attention and when he asks her out, she agrees to
a group date.
