Someone on another forum said that Lauren is the reality tv version of Meg Griffin from Family Guy. Truer words have never been spoken.

I believe Lauren closed down her salon, actually I believe it was a make up station within a salon. Lauren closed it one day after opening it, her excuse was really lame to me something about being rich, compared to her brothers and her weight...

I do believe there are some self esteem issues there with Lauren and her weight, but one thing I do know you cannot become rich or even moderately successful if you close your business after one day.

One thing Joe Giu NEVER did was embrace the cameras and sit down for TH's. I LOVE all the pearl clutching over what are very REAL moments coming from the Giu family.

He doesn't care. He is SO over it.

And so what?

Doesn't make Teresa "abused" in any way shape or form.



Yeah, if it's 1955. The man lives in a house full of women. He's her father, and it's 2012.
Not sure what drama and pearl clutching you are alluding to. I am not losing sleep over any of this show. It is very entertaining to me , yet it is also very sad because these people, the Guidices and Gorgas, are family. But pearl clutch ain't happening here and the drama is coming from the show.

As far as it being 1955 or 2012, a child of 10 is still a child. Yes there are some "fast young girls out there, but Gia or most 10 year old girls will still have a certain shyness over their budding sexuality. It can be difficult to speak with one's own mother about these things let alone the father at the age of 10. Something's don't change whether it's 1955 or 2012.

Anyway agree to disagree...

When kids interject into adult drama (which shouldn't go on around kids, but in reality it often does) they need to be told to mind their own business. Kids need to learn when to stay out of things that don't concern them. It's a good life lesson. Gia needs to be told this is between your Mom & Uncle, now run along & do something else. Instead, they're rewarding her wild emotions with cuddles & sweet talk. The kid isn't dumb, she knows there's an emotional pay-off when she gets involved in this situation.

Agree Joe needs to stop telling Theresa to shut up, but like someone said earlier, his emotions are real. He's sick to death of the neverending drama but he can't afford to walk away from the show financially. I'll go against the flow here & say his emotions are fair, I couldn't handle the antics of Melissa & Joe Gorga either. Melissa puts on a an Academy award winning sweetheart act, but her eyes & her tone tell the real story. She was jealous of the love her husband had for Theresa and she wants that to end. Melissa wants full attention and adoration & making Theresa look bad is the only way she can be Queen Bee. I think Joe Gorg knows what his wife is up to & enjoys watching Theresa being tormented. Joe Guidace ends up looking like the bad guy because he doesn't have control over his emotions. The same goes for Melissa, she's a manipulator but has great emotional control & knows she can push Theresa's buttons to get her to blow up and look like a fool, because like Joe, Theresa isn't good keeping her reactions calm. I'd rather deal with the over-reacting Guidaces than the manipulative Gorgas.

I love this trash! For one hour a week, my family is perfect! My kids seem like darling angels & my husband is the best guy ever!!!
You are so right!

I was/am astounded that Gia (forget her parents) is talking about needing a bra and going bra shopping on tv. I raised 2 girls (now both adults) and cannot fathom them EVER discussing this in front of a crowd let alone national tv. We are not prudish but it's just beyond believable. This makes me worry more about the effects of being on a reality show for a kid.
It's different with the parents as they are adults and probably manipulate the scenes to get their point across or to come off as a certain type but for a kid this is just sad. (but I still watch

Well, for Pete's sake! The cameras are always rolling and Gia doesn't get much alone time with her Mom to discuss these things. She told her Mom she wanted to go bra shopping and Tree starts laughing and telling her she doesn't need a bra. Then she tells Joe and they both laugh. Then Mom takes her shopping with the cameras and makes so much fun of the poor kid, I wanted to smack her.


Gia is generally a little drama queen but she does deserve a little privacy. I shudder to think what will happen when she gets her . Gia has been indulged all her life, and her behavior sometimes leaves a lot to be desired but Tree has shaped her and she is just a little kid..


I remember when the Ozzie Osbournes had their reality show and the older daughter, Aimee, wouldn't participate. She actually lived in the guest house so as not to be part of the show.

Who closes a business one day after it opens? That makes no sense at all. I don't get it.

Now later in the evening at the family get together Gia was a little monster when her teams didn't win, but that bra shopping thing was so sad. It was probably hard enough for Gia to tell her mom she even needs a bra and shop on tv, but to have both of her parents laughing at her was really sad.

At least Gia, according to the GIU hater, Miss Andy, got some ratings for his exploitation of the footage.


I don't understand people who are so "aghast" at people who are on a reality tv show.

There are plenty of reality shows that are not negative. Think of Bill and Guiliana, Tori and Dean, Mrs. Eastwood, Bethenney Ever After.

They live their lives on camera but are trying to be decent people.

We all know the Real Housewives isn't that kind of show. They will sell their souls for fame, but they could choose a few limits, starting with their children.

Besides, I don't think they are forced to give up their dignity. Lisa on the RHOBH managed to keep hers. The New Jersey group is just too dumb to know how to be entertaining without acting stupid.
