Some Housewives like to plan ahead (Jacqueline), some just like to fly by the seat of their pants (Teresa). Some Housewives are rational and pleasant (Caroline), and some are crazy and unpleasant (Danielle). New Jersey is full of contrasts and this week three of the Housewives took those contrasts to Italy; they had some good ideas and some bad ones. Let's examine.
Good Idea: Coming prepared to Italy.
Bad Idea: Packing an entire duffle bag full of hair extensions, and another suitcase full of accessories for the girls.
Going to visit your giant family in Italy.
Bad Idea: Taking an over-crowded bus then trying to bring fifteen people up a giant hill.
Good Idea: Eating authentic Italian food in Italy.
Bad Idea: Showing Joe the bill. He griped about it for the rest of the bus ride.
Good Idea: Hiring a private investigator to find your biological mother.
Bad Idea: Revealing that brains don't run in the family by making up words like "ethninticity"
Good Idea: Showing the kids a different way of life.
Bad Idea: Showing the kids where they slaughter pigs.
Good Idea: Relaxing over a plate of homemade spaghetti.
That's just a good idea.
Good Idea: Introducing your new baby to the extended family.
Bad Idea: Dressing your children in matching crazy outfits.
Does Caroline's decision to confront Danielle (plus bodyguards) next week seem like a good idea or a bad idea?
