Jerseyicious: Gayle’s Big Secret in 200 or less

Our Thoughts:

Finally the opening of Anthony’s new salon and Olivia’s workout video??  Lord, this should be good.  What pray tell could Gayle’s BIG secret be – a man perhaps? A woman?  A baby on board?  Let’s find out…

Mikey: Look I drew a plan for the video… with boobs and butts for the girls… boobs… heehee.

Melissa’s 200: 

Opening Time!  Olivia wants to workout because the camera adds 10 pounds so internet pictures have to add at least 5.  Mensa here she comes!  Gayle has a secret man she tries to hide as Christy brings an invitation basket from Cathy.  Ant goes through the punch list with the “tomorrow” contractors and forgets the Salon Search reviewer is coming.  Cathy to create ambience hires a juggler, opera singer and mime for the opening (head scratch).  Gayle woke up late leaving the Gatsby gang locked out.  Olivia wants an 80s aerobics look for the video and the name should sound like a Haiku (Filly wonders if she just sneezed).  Gayle and Christy discuss Gayle’s “secret” which doesn’t sit well with Christy.  This workout video hurts my head!  Frankie steps up to help Ant’s salon with the plumbing.  Christy thinks Gayle bringing her new friend to Anthony’s party “is fine” (love that she gets a say).  Opening Day (maybe the mime can put Olivia and Tracy in the glass box).  The Salon reviewer arrives and is confused by the mime (so am I buddy).  Christy is warming up to Seth, must be the hormones, she’s preggers.  Ant scores 5 stars.

Jerseyicious: Friends and Family Fiasco in 200 or less

Our Thoughts:

Gigi is going to try her hand in dating… That’s right friends, we’re going to get to see some of Jersey’s finest!

You hired a barber with a faux-hawk mullet??

Melissa’s 200:

Olivia decides Gigi needs to get out talking to men, but no Guido tuxedos (track suit – love it!).  Olivia forces and awkward intro, but Gigi gets digits.  At Ant’s new salon work is progressing, and interviews begin.  Gayle is still smarting over Olivia’s mobile salon move and needs to do something like promoting Tango’s barber skills.  Ant brings his old and new staff together and suggests a soft opening.  Tracy gains a new rival at the salon.  Again, Olivia takes charge and calls Gigi’s guy from the bar for a date.  Gayle calls Olivia to the carpet for her “treachery” and plans to talk to Anthony.  OMG, this opening will be a disaster… They don’t have a bathroom (sending clients to 7-11)!!  Who opens anything without a bathroom?  Gigi’s date eats cheese so he’s out… who dislikes cheese Gigi??  Gayle stops to check Ant’s salon and points out the barber at the salon – because she has the only rights to a barber.  Cathy flips over Gayle’s comments about Filly being a manager… Hello crazy, glad you could stop by.  Ant heads out in a huff.  Gigi thinks she’s ready to move on and date.

Jerseyicious: Olivia’s Beauty Betrayal in 200 or less

Our Thoughts:

Of course the Tracy / Olivia truce is gone when Tracy finds an opportunity to stab Olivia in the back and score points with Gayle.  Man, I love these crazy women!

You better not make fun of my Jiffy Pop hairdo

Melissa’s 200:

Anthony finds himself in a vacant salon behind schedule.  At Thomas Lavone’s Studio the “Olivia” line will feature live mannequins to look like Olivia.  Fun with Siri convinces Michelle Siri can help her get Tango – so lessons it is.  Tracy dishes the Gigi/Frankie breakup with Alexa and agree they have wonderful men.  Anthony tells the crew the bad news and Olivia thinks the Thomas Lavone job is a perfect solution.  Michelle’s idea for Tango times turns into a group date (wha-wha-wha) with Olivia wearing a leotard and leopard tights (WTF??).  Tracy and Alexa look for engagement rings… 84K?  Alexa starts changing her tune about marriage.  Tracy dimes out Olivia’s event going to Anthony which angers Gayle and Christy.  Alexa is in another world finally wanting to get engaged after all her posing.  Michelle is still confused why Tango doesn’t ask her out (she’s pretty!!).  HA, Tracy shares her usual spitefulness about the Army of Olivias.  Alexa flounders with her 180 telling her man about her ring shopping experience.  Miguel helps Michelle’s cause with Tango.  Gayle confronts Olivia about the event and Anthony backs Olivia but Gayle sees betrayal and is done.

Jerseyicious: Born to be Jerseylicious in 200 or less

Our Thoughts:

Man, it’s a How to get your Jersey on!!  Maybe I should take notes since I have no Jersey what so ever.

Time to get your Jersey on

Melissa’s 200:

Tracy features nails… Of fug proportions!  Olivia talks cocktail rings – yeah, that term is used VERY loosely.  We get the Jerseylicious hair help from Tracy and Frankie… I appreciate bald guys even more now after that.  Alexa shares her smoky eye prom story.  Olivia’s diet tips are gummy foods consumed to nausea then dancing in the living room.  Gigi is a golfer??  Ah, the Buglione family… Ah, nothing says Sunday dinner like wife beaters, smokes and pasta.  Filly the pizza prince dough tosser – not sure how that makes him Jerseylicious.  Christy’s secret skill is competitive cheerleading… anyone surprised at that one?  Ah, the Jersey Shore, watch the stilettos on the board walk, could be a tragic end to a Jersey Date Night.  Club Nights and fights.  Oh stop, teen club nights?  That’s awesome.  Um, What’s up with the Filly and Corey with the whitest free-style? That was awful.  Tracy’s inner soft side is volunteering at homeless shelters?  Wow, color me impressed.  Alexa is a former tap dancer.  Oh, for the love of Jersey these folks are why I cringe when I tell someone where I live.  That being said, I adore these crazies.
