I’ve seen some people kvetching online about how lame this week’s “My Big Fat Italian Vacation” episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” was, but I loved every minute of it.

And there were a million and one reasons to love it. And much of the credit belongs to Teresa Giudice, who came up with the idea in the first place and whose antics before, during – and who knows, probably after, too! – made for some pretty amusing television. Just watch:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By the way, I’m so relieved to see “Fabulous!!!” works in any country. Now if only they could learn to say it in Italian…

Favoloso!

It’s a sad, sad day in New Jersey.

Sure, we all know the economy is in the toilet, and the state unemployment rate is hovering just below 10 percent. But now we have irrefutable proof that our sad state of affairs has actually penetrated *reality* television.

People reports that “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice and her husband, Juicy Joe, will have the contents of their “granite, marble and onyx” Towaco mansion auctioned off on Aug. 22 as part of the terms of their bankruptcy filing. And judging by the catalog, nothing – and I mean nothing – is exempt from the sale.

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star gives birth to delicious and juicy baby

It’s official: “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is mother to not one – not two – not three – but FOUR little girls.

The Towaco resident gave birth to baby No. 4 – aka Audriana Giudice – last night at an undisclosed location. According to People, the new addition clocked in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces and 20 ½ inches long.

“Teresa and her husband Joe are doing great,” a representative from Bravo told People.

Never fear… I’m sure little Audriana is just as “delicious” and “juicy” as her father and three older sisters – Gia, 8, Gabriella, 4, and Milania, 3 – all of whom make a habit of shouting out “FABULOUS!” every time a camera is in the vicinity.

Teresa’s shopping jaunt to Somerville, N.J., just a week ago certainly gives new meaning to the phrase “shop till you drop”!
