Even a third eye wasn’t enough last week to make Teresa Giudice see the error of her ways in an episode that ended with Teresa and sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga in a shouting match in the parking lot of the summer solstice party they were attending.
It was only a matter of time before Teresa’s comments, namely the accusation that Melissa was a gold digger, came to the forefront. Kudos to Melissa for keeping her cool for so long, however, enough, apparently, was enough because it all came to a head for everyone at Jacqueline’s party to see.
The party started on high alert with the loyalties amongst the housewives clearly divided. Melissa, surrounded by Manzo gals, Caroline and Lauren and Kathy Wakile, all seemed tense around Teresa, if not completely detached. Tired of the awkwardness, Kathy’s sister and fan favorite, Rosie, confronted Teresa and told her she needed to address the gold digger comments she had made. With the best piece of advice of the night and, perhaps the entire season, Rosie told Teresa that instead of all the comments and back biting maybe “everyone just needs to shut up.”
Tired of being coerced by Teresa for information, Jacqueline called Melissa over so that the sisters-in-law could duke it out amongst themselves. Within minutes, Teresa was up and leaving after Melissa made the monumental mistake of mentioning that Joe Giudice had gone to jail instead of using Teresa’s preferred method of being in denial and stating that he “went away.” In the parking lot, Teresa summoned for her sister-in-law to come out where Melissa promptly demanded an apology that she, of course, did not get. After a good amount of shouting and hand waving, the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey packed into their respective vehicles and left the party.
Tonight’s episode finds the Garden State ladies at the Wakile’s pool party in which Joe Gorga confronts his sister Teresa about their issues. An emotional Teresa declares him the “worst brother ever,” while he argues that he is “an angel.” Hmm…I’m not sure either one hit the mark on that one.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
