Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey we got to witness the Christmas miracle of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga burying the hatchet and leaving the past ugliness behind them. We’re not sure if it’ll last, but we’ll just have to wait and see. We also witnessed a super awkward New Year’s Eve call between Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita, which Teresa says was totally innocent and well-intentioned.
Teresa shared that Christmas Eve with her family was her favorite moment of the episode. “I was so happy to see Joey and Melissa, my niece and nephews, and my parents, who mean so much to me. It felt soooo good to be back with my family again. I felt like I never left.”
Last night the Christmas spirt came to Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and also a New Year brought a new attitude, and Teresa Giudice was giving out her forgiveness wrapped in tissue-filled boxes and tied with a prison-issued bow. Too bad that forgiveness felt as natural as an ingrown toenail.
Of course, in the land that Teresa built on fraud and false promises, it is not Jesus’ birthday we’re celebrating, but the day she came back to life by being released from prison. Jacqueline Laurita, who sooooo does not care about Teresa AT ALL, is watching the news coverage with tears in her eyes. Jacqueline apparently needed Dolores Catania and a bouquet of flowers to deal with these emotions. Jacqueline’s tears turned sour at the paparazzi snaps of Teresa being rewarded for surviving prison with a BRAND NEW LEXUS (said in Bob Barker’s voice)! Is there a bumper sticker that says, “Mommy went to prison and all we got was this luxury SUV.”
Kathy shared that they’re all moved into the new house and that it was a lot of fun building it (at least for her) and she designed the entire thing. She made the house open like a California layout – outside coming in, no cabinets in the kitchen. She said that the house isn’t as big as we think, it just looks that way because her bedroom is on the first floor.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

In a new interview with New York Live, Teresa reveals why she and Melissa left their interview with Access Hollywood before it was over. And why she plans to do the same thing in the future if the media doesn’t honor her wishes.

Aside from the nonsense story lines with Jacqueline Laurita and the two new Housewives that none of us know yet, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere episode was really emotional. At this point I just wish that the show was about Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudiceand their families. I guess that it basically is, but officially dropping the dead weight (Jacqueline) would make for a great show.
But anyway, the Gorga/Giudice portion of RHONJwas on point and I was all sorts of emotional when I was watching it. Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga were so excited and nervous for Teresa to come home and I really felt the tension when I was watching-I also have no life, but anyway)… Melissa shared her thoughts on the first episode of Season 7.
I am semi-embarrassed to admit that I got pretty emotional when I watched the Real Housewives of New JerseySeason 7 premiere episode. I am way too invested in these people’s lives and Teresa Giudice’s homecoming really got me choked up. Yes, I was super annoyed that Bravo waited until the end of the episode before giving me what I really wanted to see, but it was definitely worth the suspense. The Queen is back and I am so excited about it.
Still, I felt awkward watching the nervous anticipation from Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga before Teresa’s return since I now know that they are all on really good terms and that Melissa and Teresa are now besties. And if I feel kind of conflicted watching the family tension, then I can’t imagine how Teresa herself feels.
