Teresa Giudice knows how to keep it classy — just don’t tell her to pay attention, puh-lease. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is flipping the tables on the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York by sounding off on season 3 of their show. In this post, Teresa shares her thoughts on when it’s appropriate to share intimate details — and when it’s not:

Our theme this week: TMI. OMG, there was TMI!

First, we met new cast member Sonja Morgan. She’s a friend of LuAnn’s, a friend of plastic surgery, a friend of designer clothes (she has different closets for different cities: “The Miami closet,” “the Denver closet … ”) and a big fan of sex, apparently. That’s great and all, but considering she’s not married anymore, it really just made her come off like a big whore. She told Kelly, who she just met, that she had a weekly sex date with Kelly’s ex Max, until she met another guy and decided she couldn’t juggle them both. She calls herself “the straw that stirs the drink.” I don’t even know what that means, but it sounds dirty. And not in a good way.

Then, we had Ramona waiting for her husband Mario in a slit-to-her-boobies nightie. When he arrived, she asked him if they could renew their vows. They’ve been married 16 years and I think they are very sweet to each other, but the whole scene in their dark apartment was painful to watch. I don’t know, but something about Ramona is always a little painful to watch.

You know what else was painful? That awful, awful fashion show in Brooklyn. I’m not saying Jill wasn’t rude to sit and make mean comments from the front row, but she was right: the venue was next to trash, the weren’t dressed nicely, and when Ramona walked the runway, she did look like she’d been invaded by an alien. (I did think Alex had a nice walk, though.)

For some random reason, we also got to see Kelly take Alex’s husband Simon shopping. Kelly has great style, and obviously Simon doesn’t, so I was hoping we’d get to see a great makeover. Yeah, no. Instead, we saw Simon pretending to be a clotheshorse and saying, “Dangle me” (WTH?), asking the sales guy how his butt looked in jeans and running around a department store without his pants on.

But nothing prepared me for Bethenny‘s pregnancy-test scene. First, we got to see that she keeps pregnancy tests in a basket with her tampons. Who does that? And um, gross. And I know we’ve seen the commercial of her sitting with the stick all season long, but I had NO IDEA we were going to watch her pee on that stick. The shot of Bethenny sitting bare-assed on the toilet with the door open will probably haunt me for the rest of my life. Not cool! –Teresa Giudice
