Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3: Episode 9 Recap

Christmas Party at the Gorgas last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and according to Melissa's sister, panties are optional.

We'll start with pre-party planning. It sounds like Joe Guidice has a DUI conviction, then was driving while suspended for the DUI for which he spent 10 days in jail.

He's being sued for fraud and is in the middle of very public and messy bankruptcy proceedings plus other legal issues that haven't been discussed on the show.

It's a life I wouldn't want to have any part of but Plus 10 for keeping it interesting.

Ashley has a birthday with all of her family and friends only the girl can't seem to stop texting. Your friends are sitting right next to you. Who are you texting? Minus 7 for incredibly rude behavior. At her age, she should know better.

The brand new Jeep Wrangler is Ashley's birthday present. Supposedly she's going to be picking up the $500 a month payments soon. I really wonder if she's being set up to fail with this.

I doubt her internship pays very much (most don't). I know she lives at home for free but between the car payment, insurance (not cheap in Jersey), plus commuting and fuel costs this could get pricey.

Or maybe I'm just naive and Mommy and step-Daddy are picking up the tab on all of that. Minus 5 to me for thinking of this in terms of my life and not like a Bravo Housewife.

Back at party central, Joe and Melissa meet with Fabulous Fred the party planner. He describes their options. They can pay for the model perfect servers who can speak well or the "roly poly servers with their bellies sticking out." Fabulous isn't the word I'd use to describe Fred. Minus 10 for being rude, crude, and sleazy.

Melissa keeps insisting that the party is for Jesus. Right, because Jesus would want a giant ice sculpture of Melissa and Joe Gorga. And Jesus was such a gambler that a Casino room is a must.

Melissa and Joe work on planning their massive party. Besides spending in excess of 50K, they are worried about the fact that everyone who was at the explosive christening clash, will now be in their home together, reunited. One thing that I liked about Melissa was that although she was spending so much money on the party, the point of the party was toy donations for St. Joseph's Hospital in Patterson NJ. Everyone who came to the party had to bring a toy. She said she would never spend that much on a party during that time of year, without doing something for the children.

Teresa dragged Joe to the party when he clearly wanted to be anywhere else than at the Gorga house. Right when Teresa walked through the door, she had a mini altercation with her cousin Kathy, who in my opinion wanted nothing than to clear the air between them. Then Melissa's brother- in- law approached Joe Giudice saying that he owed him $1000 for fixing his air conditioner. Then the real drama starts.

Kim G, forever creating problems, brings Monica Chacon to the party as her date. She claims to be innocent, but she knows that the 2 women are locked in a court battle. Monica Chacon is a lawyer who is suing the Guidices. Melissa catches wind of the situation, and asks Kim G to have Monica leave. And Kim G says that she can't do that. Excuse me, what? They had to ask Monica and Kim G to leave about 15 times before she got the hint. Monica ended up being escorted out by Melissa, and Kin G stayed at the party, and everyone urges Kim G to speak to Teresa. Then the episode ends.
