The Real Housewives of New Jersey Review: "Country Clubbed"

at . Comments

Think you've seen The Real Housewives of New Jersey at their most out-of-control? Think again after last night's melee. "Country Clubbed" upped the ante once again.

Our celebrity gossip site's review, which you can read by following the link above, offers the blow-by-blow in a way that truly does it justice. But here are the basics:

  • Teresa Guidice (left) and Danielle Staub (right) argue at the country club. As usual, except this time it escalates into a full-blown brawl. Seriously ... it's crazy.
  • Jacqueline tries to help calm things down but this does not work. Her daughter Ashley roughly pulls Danielle’s hair and this makes Danielle even more upset.
  • The cops arrive and take statements. Irate and losing her mind, Danielle is insistent that arrests be made, especially of Ashley, but this does not happen.
  • Later, the women rehash the event with other people, each making their own case heard. Ashley’s parents warn her to stay away from Danielle forever.
Guidice-d Up
Staub, D.

These two really don't like each other!

Reality shows are so contrived these days, it's rare to see such genuine disdain, such malice. Teresa and Danielle really cannot deal, and the train wreck is unreal to watch.

Honestly, how much more screwed up can this show and these women get - and how much more popular will the program become as a result? The sky's the limit, really!

To top this episode’s country club mayhem, what will they do? Actually put hits out on each other? Blow up each other's cars? Kidnap kids? We're really starting to wonder.

From a fan standpoint, while no one likes Danielle and watching her get hunted down feels justified, Teresa really did start everything, at least here at the country club.

Had she not insisted on approaching Danielle and “saying hi” nothing would have happened that evening ... think the producers asked/paid Teresa to approach Danielle?

We may never know, but this may never be topped. Your move, ladies. The gauntlet has been thrown down. If you've got a season finale in store that beats this, bring it.

After viewing last night's country club episode,I am convinced of the following-Theresa is nuts and did intentionally want to start an altercation w/Danielle. She keeps repeating that she is a lady, and that is particularly laughable. She is actually white trash. She intended all along to fight and was particularly incensed over the foreclosure remark(the lady doth protest too much). Ashley needs help because she is out of control and may eventually wind up in alot of trouble due to her behavior. ; Jacqueline, who I used to think was normal, is becoming like Theresa, Dina was smart to leave,to protect her daughter. Caroline is the only normal one. Danielle, while she apparently has her own agenda, is being victimized and that is never right.


We all know Teresa was just itching to start something with Danielle that night. Who would believe she was sitting outside waiting for her just to say Hello? As for rumors being spread, she is just as bad about talking about people behind their back. She just does not like it when it is done to her. As for both Kims, I think they are the ones who seem to be fanning the flames. The one Kim whose show it was just had to invite all of the women and then had to sit them right across from each other so they would be in each other's eyesight. Then you have Kim G. who tries to take both sides in all the situations. Bravo should not be giving these women any air time. Ashley needs a good swift kick in the a!!. I did like the way how Chris knocked her down a notch and told her if she didn't cut the crap, she can get out. Yes, I agree that Danielle is nuts, But the other women are not exactly squeaky clean themselves. Their little secrets are starting to come out one by one. Teresa and her financial mess. She didn't explain how someone making $80,000 a year (according to bankruptcy records) can afford a multi-million dollar custom built home. By the way, how did her husband escape a DWI with no further mention of it after crashing into a tree. Jaqueline's lack of knowledge to a safe full of arsenal in the middle of her living room. Caroline's connections to Bernie Kerik and the owner of Scores Strip house. There is also the fact that her father-in-law and his partner were both murdered execution style, but the family insists it was a mugging. Instead of holding a charity event for a children's charity or something to do with helping homeless they hold a charity event for the Sheriff's Department (maybe that is how Joe G. got out of the DWI situation). These women should not be throwing stones at Danielle because it seems to be coming back to bite them in the a!!


ENOUGH ALREADY!! The fight between Danielle and everyone else has gone way too far. We get it ..... everyone hates her....can this show please move on! The whole country club scene was disturbing nd disgusting. Do these women really think they are classy. They may wear designer clothes, but they belong in the gutter with the way they act. Especially Teresa...come on...she was looking for one good fight the whole night. And that Ashley...she should be sent far, far away...she is a nasty little b_ _ _ _! Focus more on Albie and Caroline...they are the true stars of this show!


Danielle is a nut! She thinks these women really are out to get her. How could you say Teresa started it she was just trying to be friendly obviously. Danielle is the one who got rude. I can't believe Bravo hired a nut to be on the show. She has all her convict friends, calling Teresa getto she is the one who has to have a convict body guard. Teresa can hold her own, as she showed America on last nights episode. Danielle really needs to concentrate on her children and not concentrate on being a victim in every situation. Jackelyn you finally see the light. Danielle is not going to change. Ashley you do need to get out of your mothers business and you do not know it all, your nineteen.
