This is going to be a quickie as I start a little free-lance gig this morning and I'm parked at a nearby Starbucks on my way to work because my wifi is out. Errrrrrrrrr!!!!!! The reunion show was basically an hour of Teresa screaming, freaking out, and saying any number of stupid things to her cast-mates. Her behavior was like a wild animal that had been backed into a corner and was lashing out in all directions as she would go from somewhat calm to a frenzied monster in 0.1 seconds. For me, there were two moments that especially stuck out from that hour-long brawl.
The first would be when Teresa was losing her shit and yelling at her sister-in-law Melissa who was wearing a red dress, "You're the devil. You're wearing red. It matches you. You like that, bitch?" Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!! I've been constantly repeating that line to my partner in the heaviest Jersey accent I can muster. Oh thank you for that Teresa! So if Teresa behaved like a wild-eyed stampeding bull, Melissa on the other hand came off really well: calm, rational, sincere, nice, likable...... I quickly doodled Melissa's surprised reaction to all the crazy crap that Teresa was spewing.
That was drawn with a bic pen in a fancy sketchbook and finished with some digital coloring. Go team Gorga!
The other fantastic moment came from the sage Caroline Manzo who is clearly the levelest headed member of this clan. Mrs Manzo aimed the following statement at Teresa with the precision of a sharp-shooter. "I feel like I'm getting dumber as the minutes go on. I am in a whirlwind of stupid. I don't understand what she's doing. It doesn't make sense to me. Nothing make sense ... I should take my own advice, and my own advice two years ago was to get you out of my life, and I'm finally taking it."
HA! Nothing further your honor! I rest my case.
