The Bravo network gave us reality television at it's BEST this week! Did you watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey finale? NO??? Then get to BravoTv.com or Hulu and watch the clips as soon as possible!
This may have been THE greatest hour of television I've seen in a LONG time!
I mean...Who knew it would take a bunch of Jersey girls to make such RIVETING television?
And the problem for me is...I like them all! So, even though there was a huge fight, which sort of makes the viewer choose sides on who they like better, I just can't! Which is WONDERFUL!
I was never a fan of Danielle until she pulled that book out and stuck it FACE UP on the table. Like, "BOOM...Now, what?" That bitch has some balls! And of course sweet little Jacqueline decided to go against her family and stick up for her friend. Ooh Girl...you better watch out because they are 'thick as thieves!" That took guts!
Then there's my girl, Caroline! This Italian mama runs the show! To me, she is the most balanced of the Housewives, and when she looked at Danielle with the attitude of "it wasn't Dina...it was ME. What are you gonna do about it?", you know not to mess with her!
Dina is just fabulous. Yes, she is a bitch, but it's endearing how much she loves her daughter. And Teresa...OMG, Table Flipping Teresa! She finally came out of her shell! In a matter of a dinner party, she changed from laid-back, nice Teresa, who lets everything roll off her back, to "I'm Gonna Flip This Table Mother F**ker" Teresa...providing us with one of the best moments in reality TV history!
WOO! I Love It!
I'm gonna miss those Jersey girls...
I can't wait for the Reunion special this Tuesday. I bet it's gon' be FIREY!
In other TV news, the Top 18 dancers performed this week on 'So You Think You Can Dance.'
In my opinion, I think the episode was a bit of a letdown. Now don't get me wrong, I think they are all incredibly talented dancers, but maybe it's becuase they are so good that I expect a LOT more from them.
OR...maybe the choreographers are to blame and were just phoning it in this week. (Shane Sparks? WTF was that???) At the end of the day, there was really only one dance that remains memorable to me: That was Jonathan & Karla's comtemporary routine to "Falling Slowly," which was Amazing!
The rest of the show was "eh"...
However, my favorite couple is still Melissa & Ade. My girl Melissa is still hanging in there, performing at the top notch quality that she always does! I hope she makes it really far! I guess we'll see...
In case you missed it, below is my pick for Dance of the Week by Jonathan & Karla.
Check it out!
