“The Real Housewives of New Jersey”: Foodtown and a whole lot of nothing

I know “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” were on the “Today” show today, but it’s a really b-o-r-i-n-g interview. Frankly, I found this little gem (thanks, YouTube!) much more interesting. Don’t you?

Did you ever think you’d see Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo or Teresa Giudice mixing with us peons at Foodtown? Me either. (And guess what? The tomatoes – which aren’t even from Jersey! – are FABULOUS, too!!!)

Actually, upon scrutinizing this video several times (yes, I have a lot of free time on my hands), I realized the Foodtown guy tells Dina those aren’t Jersey tomatoes, and yet a few seconds later she tells Caroline they are Jersey tomatoes! Guess Foodtown’s continuity editor was asleep during production…

Meanwhile, back to the “Today” (yawn) show interview. Caroline, Dina, Teresa and Danielle Staub/Beverly Merrill stopped by the New York City “Today” show set – minus a very pregnant Jacqueline Laurita – to chat with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

About the only things to be gleaned from this interview (thanks to Kathie Lee and Hoda’s incessant babbling) is this:

*Danielle/Beverly is keeping her collagen-filled lips firmly closed about all of the rumors swirling regarding her apparently colorful past. “Everybody has someone in their past or present that would like to say embellished, nasty things about them,” was all she would say when pressed on the subject.

*Teresa’s fourth baby is due in September, and she still denies being a stage mom. “I don’t think I’m a stage mom,” she said. “I think Gia’s (get ready, here it comes) FABULOUS!”

Seriously, that’s all I got out of the nearly six-minute interview. Yup, it was a whole lot of nothing. But if you want to be bored to tears, go ahead and watch the whole thing here.

New Jersey’s Star-Ledger, on the other hand, uncovered more specifics about Danielle/Beverly’s secret past. To read more about what was found, go here.

    CAROLINE SHOWS SO MUCH CLASS. SHE WAS WEARING A BEAUTIFUL T-SHIRT WITH AN ELEPHANT ACROSS THE BREAST AREA. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE LIKE IT. WILL SHE EMAIL ME OR LET ME KNOW WHERE TO BUY ONE, IF I CAN AFFORD IT?

    SHE IS FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY, AND I LOVE THE WAY SHE STANDS UP FOR HER FAMILY. (PLEASE RESPOND.) SINCERELY, GEORGIA
