It is time for the season nine finale of "RHONJ" but before we cross that bridge tonight on Bravo at 9pm, let's quickly revisit the highs (and lows) of the season so you'll be all caught up for the finale. You will feel like you were there all along, even if you dozed off, forgot to set your DVR, or just flat out forgot. Here we present the season nine highlights but do not miss the finale and the reunions in the following weeks. This is going to be great!
  • Two new housewives joined the cast- pretentious and uppity, Jennifer and educated, down-to-Earth but tells it like it is, Jackie. Jennifer's husband is a plastic surgeon who often sleeps in the pool house and they have five kids while Jackie and her husband, Evan have two sets of twins and a very sweet relationship. 
  • Melissa has found her voice and she is not taking anyone's crap, least of all Teresa's. She is calling everyone out on their BS and it is not in a bitchy, obnoxious way but rather a strong woman way. She and Jackie have struck up a strong friendship that has carried them throughout the season.
  • Melissa also thinks she has a long lost third sister and is going to start looking for her with her super cool mother's blessing. Her family really is a trip!
  • Danielle got married on camera in Bimini to Marty. She was a horrid bridezilla, yelling at Margaret and all of her wedding party but we all know how that marriage ended up. 
  • Teresa competed in a body building competition with Frank taking over as her trainer. Sparks flew but nothing has happened yet. She came in third while his son, Frank Jr. came in first in his division.
  • Jackie caused drama when she wrote a piece on spoiled children, seemingly aimed at Jen's family. 
  • Jen's brother is in an arranged marriage and it is not right by any means.
  • The ladies all went to Cabo to relax after Teresa's competition but she was drinking the Danielle kool-aid. 
  • Wine glasses were thrown, Jennifer has monkey butt lips, it was a hot mess.
  • Milania is now a rapper.
  • Joe may deported instead of coming home from prison.

Why We Are Team Melissa Gorga!

This trip to Cabo on "RHONJ" has been the least relaxing trip we have ever taken (thank you, Danielle and Jennifer). What was Teresa thinking when she invited Danielle? What the hell is wrong with her? They have some nice words, she's a matron of dishonor in Danielle's sham wedding and suddenly they are blood sisters? C'mon now. Danielle is nothing but trash and do not get us started on her husband who almost started a brawl at Tre's daughter, Milania's big showcase all because he thinks his wife is better than Margaret. Some like plastic, other like flesh. In any case, Melissa Gorga has always been a strong woman. She knew husband, Joe wanted a traditional Italian stay-at-home wife but she wanted a boutique and a career so she went and got it and she is happy. He can still have his old school tantrums but he loves her so he will let her go her own way. Now, she is really finding her voice with the ladies and she is not afraid to let that Jersey girl out. 

When Jennifer tried to defend her drinking in Cabo after she outright insulted the necklace the ladies (including herself) bought Teresa because it was not from her brother's jewelry store, Melissa put her foot down. She let the newbie know alcohol does not let her speak the truth but rather say stupid things. And she was a straight up brat. She also has not broken her alliance with Margaret or Jackie just to make Teresa happy even after Jackie made the comment to Tre that if a woman could control her man, Joe would not be in jail. It was a fair comment, let's be honest. And finally, after Margaret threw the glass of wine on Danielle and she retaliated, Melissa did not care if it was Danielle or Jennifer; she was done with the petty drama. She has a great family, a great personality, she is fun and sassy and this is probably what kills Teresa the most. It's sad because they had such beautiful accommodations, too! What team are you? Let us know!

A "RHOC" Arrest!

Usually, when it comes to an arrest in the OC, it often has had to do with former housewife, Lynne Curtin's youngest daughter, Alexa or Lauri Peterson's son, Josh Waring. But, this time, it is all about current "RHOC" cast member, Gina Kirschenheiter. The 34-year-old was arrested for for a DUI yesterday, US Weekly confirmed. "Gina Kirschenheiter was stopped for a traffic violation in Rancho Santa Margarita at Santa Margarita Parkway. She was arrested for DUI at 12:20 a.m. on January 31 and was released at noon that same day," according to public affairs officer, Jaimee Blashaw. Gina joined the cast for season 13 along with lawyer, Emily Simpson but was posed as a single mother to three young kids while husband, Matt lived in LA during the week for work, only coming home on the weekends. It was revealed through the press prior to show's debut, or right after, that the couple had filed for divorce and we watched it play out on television. Matt was never actually seen as his job would not permit him to be filmed.

Today, Gina released a statement: " I made a very bad choice the other night after a mom's night out. I am extremely disappointed in myself and regret my actions wholeheartedly. I have learned a valuable lesson and hope to show you all that one incident does not define me." She will appear in court on the 28th of this month and is said to be coming back for season 14; she was just seen with her co-stars at Andy Cohen's baby shower. No word if this incident will appear on the show as Countess Luann's did on RHONY. Only time will tell but we truly hope she has learned and this was just a minor setback in a world full of comebacks. And remember- never drive under the influence. You are not only endangering yourself but others on the road. Call someone.

P. Diddy's Ex, Kim Porter's Cause of Death Now Known!

Diddy fans were shocked to find out his baby mama and ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter had passed away. It appeared she had been sick with cold/flu symptoms and had reportedly visited a doctor to address her symptoms but no one thought her to be this sick. US Weekly obtained the Coroner's report which stated the cause of death, which occurred November 15th.The model died from lobar pneumonia, therefore it is a natural cause death. 

Essentially, lobar pneumonia is an infection of the lung, cause being bacteria. Without oxygen to the lungs, which pneumonia prohibits, rapid death is possible. The 47-year-old left behind four children, three she had with Diddy. Through the mogul, the ex-duo had Christian, 20 and twin girls, Jessie James and D'Lila, 12. Diddy spoke at Porter's funeral and commented about how she was always a support system for him and a big motivator, even after they had split. We wish nothing but peace for him and her four kids during this time and hope this helps to close the chapter some.

Another "Sister Wives" Baby!

The Brown family has made no secret they would not mind expanding their already large family. Kody, star of TLC's "Sister Wives" is quite fertile and he would be procreating with fourth wife, Robyn, who is the only one he is legally married to. As you may remember, original first wife, Meri divorced Kody so Robyn could marry him so he could legally adopt her three kids from her previous marriage. She did a mitzvah. From their marriage, spiritual and beyond, Kody and Robyn have birthed two children and have not ruled out more. And now the Brown's have big baby news but it comes from Janelle! 

Yes, Janelle has baby news but not like that. The mother of six is going to be a grandmother for the second time. Daughter Madison Brush, 23 announced via Instagram and TLC that she and husband, Caleb are expecting baby number two. They are already parents to Axel who was born in May 2017 and chatted about more kids but were not sure just when this would happen. Caleb has said he wanted to be a dad from the beginning and Maddie appears to be glowing. There was much controversy on last season of the show when Meri was not alerted to Maddie going into labor with Axel as other wives Christine and Robyn were there with Janelle. Hopefully, everyone can be together for birth of the second grandbaby. 

You can see Madison's announcement on her Instagram account and send your congrats! And don't forget to catch the new season of "Sister Wives" Sunday night at 8pm on TLC.

Go Behind-the-Scenes of Tonight's RHONJ BEFORE the Show!

"RHONJ" may not air until 9pm tonight on Bravo but we have some exclusive photos from Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos, courtesy of Cessie Cerrato. The resort is barely a year old so you know the amenities were plush and above amazing yet it will be interesting to see what the housewives (looking at you, Jennifer) will have to say! It looks like a place where you just want to drift away and leave your troubles behind. Enjoy!

Mandi's Thoughts On: "Married At First Sight"

photo courtesy of fyi.tv

It is now season eight of "Married At First Sight" and you would think the experts would have gotten it right by now. They have not! What metric system are they using or whatever because it is clearly failing on so many accounts. We have a few happy couple and for that, I am grateful as are many viewers but for those who've invested time and energy from the jump, what are you thinking experts? And are you really experts? Here's where the couples stand from season one to season seven, just so you get an idea of how "well-suited" they all were:
-Season 1: 1/3 MARRIED (Jamie and Doug who sadly just experienced another miscarriage. Thoughts and prayers)
-Season 2: 3/3 DIVORCED
-Season 3: 3/3 DIVORCED
-Season 4: 3/3 DIVORCED
-Season 5: 1/3 MARRIED (Ashley and Anthony had a baby)
-Season 6: 1/3 MARRIED (Shawniece and Jephte had a baby in August)
-Season 7: 1/3 MARRIED (Bobby and Danielle are expecting a baby)

So, that is four couples out of 21 that made it. It's like the odds of "The Bachelor" and those are just random hungry women looking for a prize! Now we are onto another season and here is my take on the couples and it is not that pretty so hold on to your Bible, Pastor Calvin!

We are in Philly this year and it has only been three episodes yet I feel so much for these couples in such a short period of time. If you follow the site's Twitter @3icecubes, you know how we truly feel. Let's do this.
