10. "Victoria Gotti is a controlling harpy"
In response to message #0
 
I didn't really know much about this person before this show, other than she was semi-famous because she's a criminal's daughter. I gotta say, I'm not impressed.

Damn, she is unattractive. First of all, honey, if you're 33, then I'm Jennifer Aniston. Then again, the math seems about right, so all I can say is -- YIKES. Not aging well. Get a haircut, freak. Or at least tone the shade down a smidge. She's brassier than a high school band.

Secondly, where the hell did she get her personality, a car crash (shout out to fellow About Last Night fans)? She is always telling people how they should be acting. I can understand her being annoyed with her late date, but SHUT THE FUCK UP about it, already. It was clear that the dude simply did not give a fuck. Yet she's sitting there counseling him on how to treat a "lady." Meanwhile, she can barely conceal her hard-upedness.

And she has orange children. Where are these people getting their tans? I've never seen such bad color (and I watch that stupid Diane on BB5 three days a week). Add to the fact that they are shiftless and lazy, and you've got yourself a family of peach colored buffoons. Wholly unappealing.

A couple of other observations:

- she doesn't have a business card? Is this normal in the magazine business? Wait...I'M in the magazine business. No, it isn't normal. I know its STAR, but business cards are not that expensive.

- Is she spending her housekeeping money on collagen and botox? The landscaping is seriously honked up, and the pool? Ugh. And, apparently, she has no one to wash her car, either (if it was my Mom, I'd be out there mowing that lawn and washing her car). Her Daddy probably paid cash for that house when he bought it for her, but I am wondering why these 3 jobs don't pay her enough to water the grass, yet allow her son to cruise the streets in a Mercedes of his own. Oh, and $10 says that limo is provided by A&E.

- What's with the oddball blonde princesses and their faithful lovestruck sidekicks? Anna Nicole and Kimmy, Jessica and her father, and now Victoria and Tula? Ugh.

1. "Growing up trash is more like it"
In response to message #0
 
Is somebody summarizing this show? Victoria Gotti's plastic surgery is so bad that I found myself compelled to play that game, is any part of her face real? Her lips, her cheekbones, were eerily reminiscent of Joselyn Wildenstein, made famous only by her awful plastic surgery.

Do the Gotti boys know how to speak english? Are their incoherent mumblings what passes for speech among Long Island teens today? And what's with the spikey hair? They look to be taking fashion cues from Scott and Jase -- next week, apparantly, the theme of the show is "Gel Wars -- Who stole my Dep!"

And my god, they live in a multi-million dollar 6 acre compound, where nobody can be bothered to put a beer can in the trash -- apparantly the cess-pool that passes as a swimming pool serves just fine. When their handy-man started cleaning the pool out, I was waiting for him to rake a body out of there.

Why does it always seem like good money is wasted on the wrong people?

2. "Speech Defect?"
In response to message #1
 
I was seriously wondering if there was something wrong with those "boys" like maybe they're deaf and can't talk properly. Maybe retarded? Couldn't understand a thing they were saying.

Bunch of disturbed and not very interesting people. Victoria is a dog-faced hostile mess. Stupid, loud, and rich with big boobs.

This show may be a combination of the worst of the Osbornes, Newlyweds and Anna Nicole Smith.

3. ""There's a lot of love in this house......""
In response to message #0
 
   Wowzers......could this chick be any more delusional?!

To sum up:

1) Those JDs (juvenile delinquent) sons of hers are absolutely horrid. Between the yelling, screaming, fighting and outright disrepect to any adult figure made me envision them all being held down, scrubbed clean with a wire brush and sent off to the nearest, meanest military school that would take their worthless asses in hopes of turning them into "men" instead of the posturing gangsta wannabes they are.

2) The Ex is stalking (communicating with?!) her from prison? the next town? who knows.....but hey.....at least the roses weren't black.....I was a bit concerned there for a second.

3) She states she worries about her boys getting hit by a car in the golf cart present the Ex thought would be a fab gift for an out of control 14 year old. The cart brings up memories of how her younger brother was killed years ago and how her mother suffered after his death although I did notice she didn't bother to mention her sainted father immediately had the driver killed even though it was clearly an accident and not intentional.

4) The house and grounds make the Sopranos look stylish....truly, I thought the HBO house/set were more of a parody....yikes it all I can say!

5) The hair, clothes, plastic surgery, the swimming pool, the interior decorating all need to be seen to be believed....scary stuff.

In short, this trainwreck has all of the making of an unparalleled hit.
'til next week,
justa

I would comment on how this show looks like a heap of hot garbage and how Victoria Gotti looks like Li'l Kim with just a little more work and some skin bleaching and how her sons seem like some of the most rude, disrespectful, uncouth, classless, uneducated sons of bitches I have ever seen in my life....


But, I'm scared.

In response to message #7
 
but I've seen a lot about her recently. She's very attractive and feminine, and is probably a very talented writer. Her sons seem like healthy, happy, intelligent teenagers.

I don't understand the constant need to bash her dear, departed father. Must we malign every person connected in any way with reality television, even a gentle, respectable businessman who has passed on, leaving his adoring family members bereft?

9. "The pool/landscape boys were HOT!"
In response to message #8
 
   Vic was hoping do the horizontal bop with one of them, but alas, they were late for dinner and didn't know how to behave in the club. If she wants it that bad, couldn't she just hire herself someone or hit up one of her son's friends? Oh, wait, I have seen their friends. She should have done one of them before she got to know them.
I wonder if they will continue to do the landscaping...

I have yet to see this show, but does she really claim she is 33? It's a known fact that Victoria Gotti is 41. Did she honestly think a ton of plastic surgery was going to wash away 8 yrs?

Here's an article that gives her real age. Unless she had her first son at 15, I'm not falling for it.

41? That's a lot closer, but Christ on a cracker, she still looks about 48-52! She should be telling people she's 63 and then they'll all say how terrific she looks.

What's even more odd is that her friends seem to be the not-quite-as-attractive stereotype sidekicks pulled out of a chick flick. The "Oh my gawwwwd" and "Campbell's Soup out there...Mmm-mmm Good!" comments made her sound like the hybrid of every quirky chubby sidekick ever written into a movie script.


Also, I may be a guy, and straight, but I'd buy those landscaper guys dinner in a minute.

14. "Where's Sammy the Bull when we need him?"
In response to message #0
 
I only watched a few minutes of the show, but I learned everything I need to know from the commercials.

33? 41? Puh-fucking-leeze! Barbara Eden, Joan Rivers and Dolly Parton are all older than her, have probably had the same amount of surgery and yet all look better than her (well, maybe not Joan, but she can't help those mailslot eyes). It's not like there's a dearth of over-the-top surgically preserved blondes out there for her to catch a clue from.

As a characture of a hot chick I have to give her props. The exaggerated hourglass figure, the hair long blonde extensions, the Daliesque face... what's not to like? Well, her personality for one thing. She seems like Joe Pesci's Tommy De Vito without the sense of humor. She's "got drunk and fucked her to shut her the hell up" hot, not "I'd like a long term relationship with you" hot.

She looks to me like a Barbie doll that was placed in a microwave to soften her up, then placed in a bell jar and finally released on a classroom of 5th graders to dress her and apply her make up. And a "vintage" Barbie at that...

Bah, maybe it's my law abiding side drawing out my hatred of criminals and their spawn, so in closing let me just say - Ditzy Spears and Titzy Lohan, much like the movie Excalibur where Merlin showed Morgan the Eye of the Dragon - look into your future and scream.

All I saw from this show was Miss Gotti decked out in a white top and white mini-skirt (emphasis on mini...when she was in the limo I thought she was just sitting there in her underwear). 50-year-old shouldn't be dressing like chickenheads.

   The all white all the time seems to be her theme. If that floats her boat who am I to say anything, but what really baffles me is the white keds and white slouch socks she insists upon wearing.

18. "OMG, you just uncovered the secret"
In response to message #17
 
- VG said she was 7 years older than landscape guy. Landscape guy was 26. Which would make her 33. She is actually 15 years older than landscape guy. BUT if he were 26 in 1996, she would have been 7 years older than landscape guy.

- She wears white Keds with slouch socks, very popular in 1996 (okay, 1986, but work with me, here. I'll bet Jersey gals were still wearing them in 1996).

THAT'S IT! Victoria Gotti is trapped in 1996! It makes so much sense now.

Also the "all white" thing has already been done by P. Diddy. Victoria should pick a new color. I don't think anyone has tried the all magenta wardrobe. She could trademark that one, I bet.

I thought she said that landscape guy was seven years older than her oldest son??

She seems to only wear all white or all black. She doesn't look too bad in the black, but the white is horrible on her. It makes her look like a big tangerine with white hair.
