Last night’s Bravo episode of “Watch What Happens: Live,” welcomed “Real Housewives of New Jersey” housewife, Teresa Giudice and the miracle worker, Dr. V, who patched up the feud between her and her brother’s family on last night’s episode of RHONJ.
Dr. V of the Bravo show “L.A. Shrinks” had no inkling into the goings-on of the Giudice-Gorga feud, and came in with a whole different perspective. No foregone conclusions, she did her thing, and heard their stories. By the end of the session, speaking in the language, only they would understand, including the F-bombs; she did a great job mending their relationships. In the end, Joe Giudice seemed to be the most clearheaded of them all.
Andy loved the clip of Richie catching Rosie by the breasts. Andy also asked her if she knew about the black tar, and she said she had a feeling. At first, she did not know what it was, but surmised it after seeing all the black on her hubby. Dr. V got a good laugh from that too.
He also showed clips about how hot Dr. V was, and the comments made by just about the whole cast and how pretty she was. Even Rosie told her she had nice legs. He showed Teresa owning up to her mistakes; something few expected. The mutual apologies from her brother, Melissa and Kathy added much to the catharsis of the episode.
Andy also said that Joe Giudice emerged as the “New Jersey Voice of Reason” as they showed the clips of him helping Teresa let go of the animosity she had for Jacqueline.
A caller from Florida asked Teresa how it felt to be hugged by her brother and Melissa, and if she really had to call her a bitch? She said she was only kidding, and it felt great. As for the name calling, in New Jersey, bitch can also be a term of endearment. Richie and the two Joes always called each other nasty names as a sign of love. Maybe it is just a New Jersey thing.
Dr. V also stated that by calling Caroline, Teresa showed a sign of her vulnerability. By the time she arrived, the healing already started, and she was glad that she was there to share it with them. They also commented that Caroline paid an important part by being there.
Teresa was asked by another caller, if she could go back in time, is there something she would do to change what happened between she and her brother. She said she would not have let the breakdown in communication go on so long and insisted on speaking with him earlier.
Someone else asked about the malicious blogs and tweets by them, and what Dr. V thought of them. However, Teresa stated that after the airing of the fights, etc. Melissa’s blog was vitriolic, and she asked her why she wrote what she wrote. Melissa replied that she was responding to the feelings she had back when the episode was being filmed and not how she feels at the moment. Dr. V stated that the social media was a recipe for disaster for their relationship.
Andy brought up the nasty things Melissa said about Teresa, calling her a disgusting pig and badmouthing her endorsements. Teresa said she never said anything bad about her singing, and only mentioned the lip syncing when Andy asked her about it.
When a caller asked if after seeing her lick Fabellini off of Joe’s neck, did they ever play around with other foods. She said gum and anisette. She also replied to Andy’s question about the room-service guy coming in while they were in the tub and she told him that she was wearing a strapless bra.
The Mazel of the Day was to Dr. V, who accomplished something that nobody thought possible. She was presented with the “New Jersey Peace Prize” a leopard-print olive branch. The Jackhole of the Day was for the room-service guy, who Andy thought probably wanted to jump in the tub with the couple on this episode of “Watch What Happens: Live.”
