I think she deserves something quite different. 30 years in prison for RICO. She got off very easy.
I didn't know what they did, well, until tonight..she said she has to work, I have never seen her work( work out) but that doesn't pay bills.
Melissa is so much better this season, she stands up to Theresa, who is such a bully..yell, yell yell . I've said it before, I would hate her as a sister in law.
I don't like Jennifer's house, it's way OTT, and her husband seems very creepy..but when she said Marge lived in clothes racks, that was funny. Marge's house has been under construction for the past two seasons..
Danielle is on next week, ( shudder) what an ugly woman, what has she done to her face.??
Teresa is toxicly jealous of Melissa. I think that's the core of the problem. Until Melissa came into Joe's life, Teresa was the center of attention in the family. Everyone looked out for her and took care of her. Then Melissa came along, Joe's priorities changed, and Teresa doesn't have the capacity to handle it. To me, that shone through loud and clear last night when Melissa was answering questions about the possibility of having another sister. She was genuine and honest about the whole thing, and it was nice. But it had nothing to do with Teresa, and Teresa could not handle that. So she had to jump in and make it about her talking about how hard it is on her kids to be away from their dad. Really, I think that Teresa's issue with Jackie is the same thing. Jackie joined the cast and was a closer friend of Melissa than Teresa. It's not a surprise - Jackie and Melissa are more alike. But in Teresa's mind, that's choosing someone other than her and she can't handle that sort of "rejection". Melissa will be an enemy in Teresa's eyes for as long as she lives her life and accepts love and attention when it comes her way. Teresa doesn't understand that love is not in finite supply, so whenever Melissa (or anyone else) gets some, she thinks it's at her expense.
I think they both should. Jackie didn't get off to a great start, but I think she's got potential and I like the friendship between her and Melissa. And Jennifer is not someone I'd want to have as a friend, but I think she fits the bill for housewife material very well. She's willing to stick her foot in her mouth, and she's entertaining for it.
I’m madly in love,” Staub tells PEOPLE. “I’m feeling elated and excited for the next stage of my life. I’m going to marry the man of my possible dreams and hopefully I’ll spend the rest of my life in bliss.”
I agree that from what little we do see, her daughters do seem rather normal. I do worry about the impact of the second thing you said - which I also think is true. They do seem rather protective of her. But at their ages, isn't that backwards? Shouldn't they be feeling totally protected by their mom, instead of feeling a responsibility to protect her? A healthy level of care and protection felt from a child to a parent is okay. But when it crosses over to the kid feeling an obligation to the parent, I think that causes problems. They should be allowed to be kids at their ages. When they reach middle age and Danielle is older and in need of care, the obligations transfer. But now - they should be kids. It seems like Danielle has raised them to prioritize her - just as she expects her friends and fiancees to do. They shouldn't have to exist to validate her.
