As far as family gatherings with this group go, it was fairly banal. And when the word "banal" covers the inclusion of a mechanical bull in Thanksgiving festivities, you know you've got an insane group on your hands. No tables were flipped, no drinks were thrown and no weaves were tugged....

The monkeys didn't dance this week, not like they're supposed to on Real Housewives. Instead, they sat around and talking about the talking that would go on later, whether that talking was Teresa's sit-down with her brother, her eventual meeting with Melissa or Caroline's new gig talking on...

A patented Gorga look, which allows the family to communicate without words of any kind, and Teresa ignored it! So what else was he supposed to do but start a physical altercation (altarcation? It was a christening, after all...) if she was going to be so bold as to ignore his look? She left...

Thankfully, I was wrong; that was 90 minutes of pure, unbridled, off-the-rails insanity that we haven't seen since the last time our dear, sweet Teresa flipped a table. So here we have it, the longest recap I've ever written about one of the best episodes of reality television in recent...

Last night's second installment of the reunion was anticlimactic compared to the first one, butI suppose that the revelations about Caroline and Dina's relationship were interesting enough to sustain most of it. Still, I'm glad that we get to move on to Atlanta in November. 1. The title...

I didn't realize that it was even possible to be a passive-aggressive brat by way of cookbook, but give Teresa an opportunity to be a a jerk and I suppose she'll take it and run with it. She somehow seemed to take a swipe at everyone in the book, which made me wonder exactly how much text...

No reason to waste the good footage on a slow night, I suppose. We started the post mortem of this season's second giant fight in as many episodes by visiting with Kathy while she gave her version of events to her husband. Even though her fight was with Teresa and about things that Teresa...

None of them seemed willing to admit that they all act like a pack of wild gorillas when you put a camera and some booze in the room, but I suppose that's the level of self-awareness that we've all come to expect from this group in particular. Speaking of bad behavior, we caught up with...

Pretty soon she'll be pulling the skank shift on Tuesday afternoons at Private Eyes Gentleman's Club, and she'll probably still be blaming it all on her mother, but at least she'll have the kind of life she deserves for the amount of effort and thought she's put in to it. At least then, her...

And while it seems reasonable to discuss expectations and make sure everyone's on the same page about how the kids are supposed to act, actually writing it out and signing a contract seems like an exercise from group therapy that someone took a little too seriously. But the whole interaction...
