Scoring the Real Housewives of New Jersey Throwdown: Ripped Weaves, Broken Heels and All

Usually Movieline recaps the Real Housewives of New Jersey by scavenging each episode for the purest moment of the night as well as the moment so toxically fake that even Andy Cohen cannot watch without donning full haz-mat gear first. But in Monday's episode, appropriately titled "Country Clubbing," the ladies of New Jersey found themselves in such an over-the-top brawl (police, weave-pulling, and an in-the-arms Bodyguard rescue) that I had no choice but to replay the footage, score each broken heel, tally each bungled acrylic and determine which housewife caused the most damage.

· "Is b*tch better?" -- After Danielle tells Teresa not to call her honey, Teresa hits back with this insult. (Teresa: +1)

· "You're a ho' bag." -- Teresa shouts at Danielle. (Teresa: +1)

· "I'm from Paterson, b*tch. Don't you forget it." -- Apparently, coming from Paterson gives housewives instant street cred? This line was confusing, but when paired with an "oh no you didn't" finger wag, came off as threatening. (Teresa: +1)

· "I live in a $5 million dollar house, b*tch." -- Money makes your argument stronger. (Teresa: +1)

· "Your house is in foreclosure!" -- Record scratch. For the first time this season, a cast member (Danielle) acknowledged the $11 million dollar elephant in the series. (Danielle: +5)

· "Danielle, I read your court records!" -- Jacqueline enters the fight, bringing up Danielle's shady criminal record as Danielle is herded out of the Brownstone by her ineffective security team. (Jacqueline: +1)

· "You beat somebody with a 9mm pistol." -- Jacqueline recites Danielle's rap sheet from memory. (Jacqueline: +1)

· Danielle's heel breaks as she tries to run out of the country club, slowing her escape. (Danielle's heel: +1)

· "You're a f*cking coke whore!" -- Teresa screams after Danielle's limping frame. (Teresa: +1)

· Finally outside, Danielle cowers in a corner and demands, "Get me out of here! I'm going to pass out." to her completely useless bodyguard. (Danielle: -1)

· Danielle claims that she cannot scurry to the car across the parking lot because her heels are broken. Apparently, she never considered taking off her shoes. (Danielle: -2)

· "Calm down! Calm down! Calm down!" Frustrated, Kim G. tries to smack some sense into Danielle, who is sitting in a pile of broken heels and fake tears. (Kim G: +1)

· Ashley, Jacqueline's 18-year-old daughter, breaks out from the crowd and rips the weave from Danielle's head as a bodyguard and a driver try to wrestle the unhinged housewife to the car. (Ashley: +10)

· "Love and light! Stay in the positive, b*tch!" -- Ashley's last words as her mother shoves her back into the country club. (Ashley: +2)

MIDWAY POINT: Ashley leads with 12. Teresa follows with 5. Danielle and Jacqueline tie with 2. At the back of the pack, Kim G. and Danielle's free-willed heel follow with 1 each.

    You are a sick chick! Actually saying that Ashley is the "winner"-if I would have seen her do that to another person I would have kicked her spoiled, attention seeking, reality seeking, gonna cry anytime someone says that I can't do something ASS!!!!

  • Gari says:

    Assault is not something that should be taking lightly. I don't like Danielle, but the way she was ganged up on at that event was alarming and it definitely crossed the line of acceptable behavior.
    It turned out that Danielle did have a good reason for hiring bodyguards after all.

    Real housewives, real psychological issues? Read, join the discussion and decide for yourself!

  • Danielle is Demented says:

    Danielle set this up, When she was getting dressed she commented on her heels saying she wasn't going to be running from anyone??
    All Theresa did was say hello. Danielle took it too the level it went too by yelling that Theresa House was in foreclosure and then Danielle ran before Theresa ran after her??? If Danielle didn't want a fight she should of said hello to Theresa and walked away. Danielle WANTED A CONFRONTATION.

    $90,000 stolen after thieves picked the locks of a small motor cycle dealership on Redland Bay Road, Capalaba. The store has been broken into three times since May lasy year! Sounds like these guys need better locks!
