Real Housewives of NJ
Every single week that I watch this show, I get more annoyed. My anger and annoyance seems to be shifting around a lot lately. I used to love Caroline but now, I'm really disgusted by her. Last season she HATED Teresa, hated her. She really wasn't even friendly with Melissa & Joe and now it seems to be her mission to help Teresa patch up all of her relationships. The thing is, Joe, Kathy and Jaqueline don't seem to care as much as Caroline does. The entire thing makes absolutely no sense. But then again, nothing about last night's show made any sense.

All of a sudden EVERYONE was working out at the Get Fit Fitness Center? Never heard of it before. We know that Kathy doesn't work out EVER, and I can't believe all of these women don't have personal trainers, so okay, it's a product integration, and I get that, but IT HAS TO MAKE SENSE PEOPLE. The best product integrations feel organic not ridiculous.

Next ridiculous moment...Joe Giudice and Gia going out for ice cream and talking about the birds and the bees. Great convo..."Kissing is disgusting?" "Don't give boys anything". "Hairy grill?" Joe telling is daughter she's a midget was really great to see too. What is wrong with these people? Shall I continue? I feel I must.

Here are all the other things that were ridiculous:
-Caroline who constantly says how moral and ethical she is, lied to Joe Gorga about Teresa wanting to meet with him.
-I know that Autism is brutal, and you'll try everything, but didn't you find the hyperbaric chamber just a little out there?
-Pretty sure that Melissa Gorga lied about seeing her father-in-law in the hospital, but now I'm not even sure. Didn't they all not go see him because Joe Gorga was sick and they didn't want to risk it? Why did she tell Teresa she went? I hate to say I agree with Teresa on anything, but if you're too sick to go visit your father-in-law, should you be at the gym working out and spreading germs there?
-How insane is it that Caroline's sister brought a humongous pig home to Caroline's house? Caroline didn't even bat an eye, she just got some stuff and headed back to Hoboken.
-Was it me or were Teresa & Joe using Gia's party for themselves and the show? Teresa's kids are all so screwed it's not even funny. Did you see how Joe Giudice tortured Christopher, Gia's BFFL? OMG what a total d*ck!
-Richie is out of his mind. There is no way that anyone would remain that calm if they came home and found their son and his aunt pulling up in your Ferrari, let alone on a crazy rainy day. Kathy had the right idea in freaking out, Richie hugging Joseph and asking him how cool of a driver he was is maddening.

The show is just so ridiculous, but it was all I watched last night...fell asleep super early.


-May online video rankings are out and some crazy great news for AOL. They moved up seven spots to #2, when you look at unique viewers (36.12 million in April to 53.85 million in May). Online video in general had a great month, check it out:

  • 182 million Americans watched nearly 41 billion online videos in May. This was a decent increase vs. April (181.9 million Americans watched 38.8 billion online videos).
  • Based on unique viewers, the top online video content properties were: Google/YouTube (154.54 million), Facebook (60.43 million), AOL (53.85 million), VEVO (52 million), and NDN (46.6 million).
  • Based on video streams, the top video properties were: Google/YouTube (13.96 billion), AOL (838.93 million), and Facebook (727.38 million).
  • Americans watched more than 15.8 billion video ads during the month, a pretty noticeable spike from 13.3 billion video ads watched in April.
  • The top video ad properties (by number of views/impressions): BrightRoll (2.62 billion); Google/YouTube (2.55 billion); LiveRail (2.13 billion); (2.10 billion); and Hulu (1.67 billion).
  • Time spent watching video ads totaled over 6 billion minutes, with BrightRoll accounting for the highest duration at 1.3 billion minutes.
  • Hulu, as always, delivered the highest number of ads to viewers with an average of 71 per viewer.
