Of her take on Melissa's experience at her launch party, Teresa writes, "I was sorry that Melissa got into a fight with one of her best friends at the launch party. For the record, I didn't invite Jan or Penny. The party was open to any salon owners who called in and spoke with the Youthful 8 company reps. As soon as I found out Jan had RSVPed, I called Melissa to warn her and make sure she would be OK with it. If Melissa didn't want them to come, believe me, I would have uninvited them immediately!" I believe that, don't you?
Teresa continues, "I don't really know Jan, I just know she was one of Melissa's best girlfriends, and they were in each other's wedding. I have no idea why Jan and Melissa would have a falling out, but like I said in my interview on the show, I have Melissa's back…When Jan and Melissa were talking, I was right there to make sure it didn't get out of hand. My brother was right there too, and he wasn't upset, shrugging it off as crazy talk, so I did too. My main concern was that Melissa knew I was there for her." Really? I don't believe Melissa as far as I could throw her, but it appeared to me that Teresa didn't want to leave because she didn't want anyone to say something she wasn't expecting…
Kim D. thinks the allegations against Teresa are crazy and far fetched. Kim tells her other BFF, Tom Murro, "I don’t think she’s capable of doing the things she's been charged with. I think there’s been a witch-hunt going on for a long time for her. In this country we are innocent till proven guilty !!! I love my friend and will stand by her!!"
I don't think I'd necessarily call it a witch hunt since the feds have been investigating Tre and Joe since 2001 – long before reality TV came knocking. It's pretty clear that Kim D. and Kim G. aren't seeing eye-to-eye on this one.
Tonight Teresa attempts to prove she's the bigger cannoli by planning a retreat to rebuild her family and end the Gorgadice bickering. Hopefully she can keep her Milania Weave on long enough to avoid any fireworks. We know it's all made for TV drama but it will be nice to see an end to all the fighting!
In her first installment, Kim talks about her friendships with both Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita, and of course hints at some major upcoming drama. Yay!
"At the beginning of last year my mother was diagnosed very suddenly with lung cancer. It was one of the hardest times in my life I have ever had to go through. Both Teresa and Jacqueline were there for me every step of the way during that horrible period," Kim begins.
On last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the Gorgadice battle continued, although the small beginnings of a peace treaty seemed to have been forged. Maybe…
Things begin in Casa de Giudice. Teresa Giudice is cooking while wrangling four screaming girls. Apparently there is some confustion (Teresa tawk) about who is actually the mama because while Milania is playing on the stove terrorizing some peppers, Gia is lecturing her about safety. Teresa meanwhile is flitting around in full hair and makeup yelling, "O.M.G!"
Teresa says she always reminds her girls to stick together and not end up married to men their siblings hate. Then she gives them a lecture on table manners. 1) Like, don't scream 'prostitution whore' unless the person really is a prostitution whore and has been engaged like 19 times! Like O.M.G!
Tonight's episode the plot will mostly center around Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo facing off for the first time since last season's "Disgrace" argument in Napa. The former friends, turned frienemies, turned total enemies will meet to try and mend Teresa's relationship with poor, widdle Poison.
Tom Murro's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that the main point of contention will be Teresa's continued friendship with Kim D. Caroline presses Teresa about why she would remain friends with Kim given her involvement in the Posche Fashion Show set-up with Melissa Gorga last season.
