There’s a scene at the end of Mean Girls where Tina Fey’s Ms. Norbury gathers all the catty, fighting teens into the high school gym to hash out their differences. During the therapy session, one weepy girl gets up and tells the group, “I wish that I could bake a cake out of rainbows and smiles and we’ll all eat it and be happy.” Ms. Norbury then asks her, “Do you even go to this school?” Her cover blown, the girl responds sheepishly, “No, I just have a lot of feelings.”
On The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Amber Marchese is the feelings girl. (Remember how she cried the second time she met Teresa Giudice?) When news breaks that Teresa and her husband Joe may plead guilty to federal fraud charges — and Joe may go to prison — Amber immediately calls her new pal.
