Preview of the yelling and the fights on the RHONJ reunion


Yesterday we heard about an alleged fist fight at the reunion for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, where Teresa and Danielle are said to have rekindled their long-standing feud with some choice words and maybe hair-pulling. Bravo has since released the preview for the reunion, and it doesn’t look the the reunion “came to blows” as Radar reported, (unless they’re saving that for part 2, which they very well may be) but there was a lot of screaming and in-your-face moments typical of this classy crew. It’s everyone vs. Danielle on that show, and now that Danielle is off next season it’s hard to see where they’re going to go with it since all the other castmembers pretty much get along. (Although there’s another recurring character, Kim Granatell, who fights with Teresa so maybe she can take Danielle’s place.) Maybe next season we’ll get to see Teresa, Joe and their spoiled daughters move into a two bedroom apartment while their giant custom built mansion is in foreclosure. I doubt that will happen, but it would be fitting.

Here’s more on the fight, which is shown above. Apparently level-headed Caroline tried to talk Danielle out of pressing charges against Jacqueline’s 19 year-old daughter, Ashley, for pulling out some of her hair extensions during an argument shown on the show that turned physical. Danielle wasn’t having that and started to sling insults, the other housewives got pulled into it and Teresa got all up in Danielle’s face shrieking hysterically.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s season finale Monday night saw Danielle Staub and Caroline Manzo attempt to end their feud, setting the stage for the show’s upcoming two-part reunion.

The episode’s climax occurred during a meeting between the two housewives at an empty restaurant, as Manzo said she was hoping to start anew with Staub, so long as she dropped charges against Ashley Holmes (the daughter of housewife Jacqueline Laurita) after a hair-pulling incident at a New Jersey country club.

Needless to say, things didn’t go smoothly.

After Staub told Manzo, “I don’t need you to validate my life,” Manzo lost her cool, telling Staub her “whole life is a joke” and reassuring her, “When I called you garbage, I meant you were garbage.”

That sets things up for the reunion show, which Bravo teased with a series of clips that lead us to believe it’ll be the most explosive entertainment to come out of the Garden State since Tony Soprano retired (Sorry, Snooki).

At one point in the preview, we see housewife Teresa Giudice threatening Staub, telling her “B****, I’m gonna pin you down! Do not break up my family!” and “I f***ing hate you so much!”

The first of the explosive two-part reunion begins on Bravo next Monday at 10/9c.

Danielle is a nasty piece of work, but again what drama is the show going to have without her on? Are those two chicks named Kim evil enough to take crazy Danielle’s place? I haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, but I’ll watch it and I’ll definitely check out this two part reunion coming up. I have to admit that I like what little I’ve seen of this trashy show and want to see how this season turns out. Does that make me a bad person?

    caroline should stick with the shorter cut.
    the fuller hair makes her look more ‘older gal’.
    p.s.- what is this affinity bravo has for dressing these broads up in ‘satin’ all the time?!
    it’s not the prom for f%cks sake!
    helloooo? :-(

  2. frenchie says:

    Teresa and Danielle are equal on one point they are both ugly and laughable

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Yay!!!! I am sooo looking forward to this. OMG Jacqueline looks amazing. Amazing. Lost her baby weight. Teresa is all in Danielle’s face yelling about not breaking up her family. WTF? LOL its gonna be fantastic. I am surprised they put Caroline and Danielle on the same couch. I seriously thought they would have all 3 ladies on one couch and Danielle by herself but Bravo has more balls than I gave them credit for. I am sooo excited. The whole season has been pretty lame but I can’t wait for the reunion.

  4. Tess says:

    I admit it, I’m a television bottom feeder.

    My husband calls my fave shows, and RHONJ is right up there, Slut TV.

  5. guesty says:

    danielle has her own very special kind of crazy…but teresa really works my nerve more than she does.

    out of the whole hot mess that is rhnj it could turn into a borefest next season w/o her.

  6. kelbear says:

    Can’t wait!

  7. Moore says:

    They’re all losers, poor things. Looking rather pathetic on national tv. That’s nothing to be proud of and I can’t wait till they all go back to being nothing more than unknown crazies.

  8. maya says:

    Danielle is a nut!! Teresa is useless and people are not interested in her family anymore.

  9. Tess says:

    Word pronounciations on this show are quirky.

    Jacqueline calls Danielle ‘Din-ielle.’

    And Danielle never says women. It’s always ‘woman.’

  10. Amanda says:

    I kind of feel like this is a little played out and a repeat of last year.

  11. Bored@Work says:

    Last night’s episode was so weird. I don’t see why the hell Caroline felt the need to meet with Danielle. They don’t like each other and they don’t talk. It seems like a repeat of the meeting Dina had with Danielle.

    If you hate her so much then stay the hell away from her. Why call her to meet with you, then tell her to stay away. I’m so confused by that.

    Danielle is crazy yes, but for the entire season all she has been doing is talking crazy and she has not really been around them or trying to be except for that time at the Brownstone.

    Out for Dinner, attacked by Teresa. Call by Dina to meet, attacked verbally by Dina. Called by Caroline to meet, attacked verbally by Caroline. Just so weird, just stay the hell away from her then.

    Just seem like pure bullying to me, she is alone with her daughters and don’t have much of a family to stick to, other than her goons, (which in itself is laughable) Yeah I know Danielle is crazy. But they keep talking about her every chance they get and keep meeting up with her. Oh man.

    Ashley is not even sorry, so why try to talk on Ashley’s behalf when its obvious she don’t even care. Ughh

  12. Obvious says:

    If i had to choose between danielle and teresa to be on that show, i’d choose danielle. bitch all kinds of crazy-but she’s not chasing people around, throwing tables, screaming every 5 seconds and is not denying what everyone knows-you filed bankruptcy and ur losing ur house. Teresa is just ugh-no words to describe my loathing for her.

    Besides neither Kim has what it takes to be a new danielle.

    That and i’m so with Danielle on pressing charges against Ashley. While I like Jacqueline-her daughter needs to learn some manners, respect and self control-the only was it seems she will is if she faces serious consequences-not just a lecture from mommy and daddy.

  13. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I had heard that Bravo does not want Kim Granatell on the show.

    Kim G. said she is buying all of Theresa’s stuff on auction and donating it to charity because she hates Theresa.

  14. Poopie says:

    YOU GUYS : if Danielle leaves the show will she take that short pathetic ex-con bodyguard with her? say it ain’t so !!!!!

  15. Kate says:

    I wipe a tear from my eye, having waited through the commercial, again, to find that the clip is not available in Canada, again.

    The world wide web really isn’t so world-wide after all.

  16. original kate says:

    danielle looks like a slestack from “land of the lost.”

  17. pebbles says:

    @Bored@work: You said it!! “The family” wants peace, but they just seemed to spend the entire season baiting Danielle and then calling to meet with her. What?

  18. grazi says:

    I dont like anybody in this season. But the attitude T, J and C have, as if they are superior with superior families nauseates me.
    Seriously, D is crazy, leave her alone with her craziness. But the other are no better. C thinks her family is oerfect, when her perfect sons seem useless, J raised a hell of a girl that dont even respect her, and T, well, everybody knows about her. All of them are trash, the 4 of them.
    And seriously, I think Ashlley will become yet the worst one. She has to learn that she cant do whatever she feels like, contrary to what her family raised her to believe, so I think D is right not to drop the charges.

  19. grazi says:

    I may be completely wrong too, cause I never really watched the show, I just read about it and have seen previews, so it is basically my impression.

  20. Kiska says:

    I wonder if Danny was waiting in the wings to swoop in to save Danielle from the women.
    I know its wrong but I love this show. It couldn’t be a better parody if SNL did it.

  21. notgaga says:

    @Tess: I love “slut TV.” def going to use it :D

  22. Bored@Work says:

    @Grazi..Oh you are right..
    You don’t have to watch the entire episode to see what’s happening.

  23. Iggles says:

    Grazi – I totally agree.

    D is a horrible excuse for a human being. But what Ashley did was wrong and she’s not even remorseful! It wasn’t her fight, and she needs to show her mom more respect. Even her boyfriend complains about her running off at the mouth!

  24. Ms_Fu says:

    As a closet viewer since season one, I just wanted to say that my favorite person in the entire show is Jacqueline’s husband, Chris. He is the most level-headed person on the show. Last year, when Teresa nearly threw a table at Danielle, Chris was the one who finally calmed the entire situation down. And this season, Chris has been the voice of reason between Jacqueline and her daughter Ashley (and something tells me he is irked because as a stepfather, his ability to discipline Ashley is limited). He also warned his wife against associating with Danielle in any way and although Jacqueline initially agreed, she was later chasing Danielle around the country club with Teresa like a pack of wild wolves hunting a trouble-making (but otherwise harmless) hyena. Chris also (gently) scolded Teresa’s husband Joe about his drinking and his car accident because, unlike Teresa and Jacqueline, I know he didn’t buy into that whole “I didn’t drink until after the accident” excuse.

    I know that Chris isn’t perfect and his limited role on the show prevents us from seeing his flaws (although I do know his company has filed for either bankruptcy or bankruptcy protection). I also know that overall, Jacqueline is a decent woman. But fame and her relationships with Danielle and Teresa have brought out an unpleasant side of her. If she isn’t careful, she could end up losing her husband, who is a decent man.

    Okay, in full disclosure, I DO have a crush on Chris. But I dare any of you to counter what I said! :)

  25. mary jane says:

    @Ms Fu…..
    Funny you should mention Jacq’s husband but MY husband (who watches the show with me) really likes that guy too.

  26. GrnMtGirl says:

    Count me in as a fan of Chris also…he seems to be one of the best characters on the show. That said…Can’t Stand Teresa’s Husband at all.

  27. Cinderella says:

    Chris is the most likeable guy on the show.

    Danielle is such a psycho and a dimwit. She discusses too much of her personal business with her daughters. They are teens; why should they care about her catfights. She also made them hug the bodyguards for bringing her home safely! That’s real nice, mom; let some strange men hug on your teenage girls.

    She is sick. Her oldest daughter has such a big career in modeling ahead of her, but her idiotic mother will ruin it if someone doesn’t step in.

  28. cara says:

    @POOPIE – don’t I wish….with camera’s rollin’ ;)

  29. wunderkindt says:

    The show is obviously heavily scripted in some places, but hell, without crazy Danielle, there isnt much plot!

  30. ERM says:

    Since I’m from NJ, I really tried to avoid the show but it’s the summer and what the heck else is there to watch (lame I know)! Anyhow, I’m glad that they kicked off Danielle. Craziness aside she’s just such a lying “clown” and clearly the hair pull did nothing to the little ‘ole brain.

    As for the rest of the them, I can only tolerate Caroline and Jacqueline. I really don’t have words for Teresa and boy has she had created spoiled brats! As for Ashley, I wouldn’t mind a swift smack to remove her smug little grin.

  31. ezra says:

    People, this shit is so staged!!!
    It’s all BS!!
    The sad part is that these ugly narcissistic hacks are laughing all the way to the bank!
    UGH!!!

  32. LondonLady says:

    I read that Danielle’s ex husband is trying to get custody of their youngest girl.

  33. Josephina says:

    Please do not drop the charges against Ashley. She is not sorry for her thug behavior. She just does not want to pay the consequences.

    She has no respect for her mother, father and any form of authority, really. I do not think I have seen 5 minutes of Ashley behaving like a normal teen since the show started. Her family cannot control her, her behavior is the extended version of “Mean Girls.”

    She needs to go to court and have someone wake her up. She will not end up in jail, but she will learn the lesson that is so overdue.

  34. Ms_Fu says:

    Smart words, Josephina. I hope that Danielle doesn’t drop the charges either. Danielle may be a crazy, psycopathic, female dog, but there was no excuse for the other women to go after her, and certainly no excuse for Ashley to grab her hair. Danielle is right, pressing charges against Ashley will do her good.

  35. mollination says:

    I get headaches watching any of these shows. I used to be able to tolerate crap like this (and even like it…shudder) but something has turned a corner and I just can’t bear to let myself encourage the allowing of such awful people to be in the forefront of the nation’s conciousness. I’m but one person but I will not support this, and in my own way – I pray there will be a turning of the tide soon enough and others will feel the same way.

  36. gem says:

    I cant wait 4 the real housewives of Atlanta, these shows have no…. how to i put this-color in them, and i just cannot take another show about rich white woman angst

  37. Ms_Fu says:

    Enlighten me, gem. How is rich black women’s angst any better than rich white women’s angst? They are all trash, all around.

  38. gem says:

    They are all trashy Ms_Fu but there are all of these real housewives shows, and atlanta still manages to have one token white woman, and i’m just confuzzled on how there are all of these casts of just white women but no other women of color, i bet you think im black huh, nope wrong. It is just a formula that i have seen a million times before on a dozen other networks besides the real housewives series
