Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Secret Debts & Owed Apologies

Hell hath no fury like Teresa Giudice scorned. She may have been in the wrong at first, but now she’s out for blood. This season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey wasted little time diving right into the drama. Jackie Goldschneider should be thankful she skipped out on the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip. Teresa’s not ready to make nicey nice quite yet. She wants to burn Jackie at the stake and make s’mores off the flames.

However, Teresa and Jackie aren’t the only women in the group already at odds. Jennifer Aydin & Melissa Gorga have already traded a fair share of back jabs at one another. Ever since Jennifer called Melissa self absorbed at the reunion last year, Melissa’s not about her at all. Even though there’s so many examples of Melissa’s selfish behavior, it’s still rude to point out. Maybe these two can get on a better path and finally build a friendship.

So far things are going fairly well on this girl’s trip. Margaret Josephs is still sad about Jackie skipping out on the trip though. She’s upset that Teresa spread the rumor at Evan Goldschneider’s birthday party. That was such a tasteless thing to do. Why would you go to someone else’s event and trash their big night with baseless rumors?

Teresa’s so focused on the analogy about Gia Giudice that she’s deflecting from the original issue. None of that would have EVER been said if she didn’t spread the rumors at Evan’s party. NOT A CHANCE. So for Teresa to now play the victim role is perplexing.

It makes absolutely zero sense for Jackie to get over the Evan rumors, but Teresa needs an apology for the Gia thing. What planet does Teresa live on? Someone please tell me because I really want to go. I want to live in a world where it’s acceptable to be that delusional and out of touch with reality.

Dolores Catania says Jackie shouldn’t be upset unless Evan confirmed the rumors. That’s a crock of s**t too. It gets sickening watching Dolores blindly support Teresa when she’s blatantly wrong. Season after season she morphs more and more into one of Teresa’s little soldiers. Grow a spine and think for yourself.

Why’s everyone mocking Jackie for having emotions but allowing Teresa to lose her mind over the analogy? There’s something majorly wrong with that picture. Stop making excuses for Teresa. It’s time to hold her accountable for the things she says and does.

Teresa is finally setting that ugly monstrosity of a home she’s lived in for years. It’s the oddest and most hideous design I’ve ever seen. Not only that, but this is a fresh start she needs. Now that she’s divorced, it’s time to move on to bigger and better things and leave the past behind her.

Now that Antonia Gorga is 15 and in a relationship, it’s time for Melissa to have the sex talk with her. We all know that Joe Gorga has that caveman mentality when it comes to women. It’s going to flip the f**k out when he catches wind of this. It won’t matter to him that her boyfriend is a nice guy. All that’s going to matter is the rage he’s going to feel pulsating throughout his body.

Melissa opens up about the jealousy in her marriage when she and Joe are away from each other. When she goes to enjoy a girl’s trip, he alludes to the possibility that he’ll stray. Clearly there’s a deep rooted insecurity in that marriage. A healthy relationship is built on truth. If there’s no trust, there’s no concrete foundation.

There’s something about this group of women that can be incredibly tone deaf. Despite the situation with Jackie & Evan regarding cheating rumors, they decide to play a prank on Joe. They want to make him believe Melissa has been talking to another man. That is stepping into dangerous territory. He comes across as a hothead who would make the drive to Lake George just to f**k someone up.

Teresa puts the plan into motion, and Joe immediately wants to know why Melissa’s been texting another man. Joe is going to spiral soon if they don’t let him know they’re messing with him. Make it stop! Abort mission!

The problem with all of this is how easy Joe believed Teresa. What does that say about their marriage? Teresa must’ve been reveling in the prospect of stirring up trouble for their marriage. Things are better now between their family, but you know a part of her was living for ALL of that.

Melissa knows everything’s been bothering Jackie, so she asks Joe to reach out to Evan. He says he’s too busy to hangout. He most likely doesn’t want to hangout with everyone where the number one topic is bound to be the rumors. His name is already being dragged through the mud because of Teresa. He doesn’t need to sit there and have to deal with more bs about it.

Jennifer tells Dolores that realtor Michelle Pais spilled some major tea to her at Evan’s party. Michelle told her that Joe owes her husband tens of thousands of dollars. WOW. According to Jennifer, she wouldn’t normally repeat something like this, but it’s not the first time she’s heard of Joe doing something sketch.

Michelle told Jennifer that when her husband did motivational speaking at Joe’s event, he wasn’t paid. If Jennifer comes to Melissa with this information so quickly after they made up, it could ruin their truce. There’s nothing solid about them in their friendship. It won’t take much to rock them to the core and send them into another feud.

Why wouldn’t Jennifer come forward sooner though? Why sit on this information? Was she just waiting for the opportune moment to strike and hit Melissa where it hurts? I’d like to know what proof Michelle has about any of this first. Right now she just appears to be a thirsty realtor with a penchant for drama.

The women are all away, so the husbands get together for drinks and poker. I AM TOTALLY IN SHOCK BECAUSE I WAS NOT EXPECTING JOE BENIGNO TO SAY WHAT HE SAID. He reveals to the other guys that he’s heard the same rumors about Evan that Teresa was spreading. Woah. That’s an entirely new entity backing up these claims.

It seems like Margaret may have heard this rumor before. However, unlike Teresa, she wasn’t making it a point to repeat and cause a scene about it. She didn’t feel the need to be petty and create a firestorm of destruction.

The ladies change into sweats and order some food which sounds fun. Of course even if they aren’t going out to dinner, it doesn’t mean the drama won’t still follow them. Melissa & Margaret call Jackie, and she’s still fuming about the Evan rumors. Evan is PISSED, and all they want is for Teresa to clear his name.

They might’ve had a decent shot at getting her to do that prior to the analogy. Once Jackie brought Gia’s name into the equation, it was game over. That was the biggest mistake they could’ve ever made. If you lie down with pigs, you’re going to get muddy. Now Jackie understands what it’s like to play in the pen.

Jackie is NOT sorry for the analogy she made. She should be. There was no reason to use an innocent person to make a point. That makes her just as bad as Teresa in a lot of ways. If nobody is willing to give a little, this group’s going to remain forever fractured. Someone needs to grow up and be the bigger person with this.

Teresa saying she’s sorry is NEVER going to happen. She’s twisted the narrative so much to make herself seem like the victim here. She won’t even acknowledge Jackie’s feelings whatsoever. The mere mention of Jackie’s name seemingly makes Teresa’s skin crawl.

In Teresa’s mind, if Jackie’s this upset about the rumors, she must think there’s truth to them. It’s not always a case of where there’s smoke there’s fire. There was no smoke. There was no fire. Teresa was the one in the forest pouring gasoline everywhere just waiting for the right moment to drop the match. This wildfire is getting so out of control, and there’s nothing anyone’s able to do to stop it.

Jackie’s not willing to come around the group until Teresa clears his name. Teresa’s not willing to call Evan to make amends. She says she didn’t make it up and that she genuinely heard it. There’s no reason Jackie should have to say she’s sorry first. There’s not one thing about that which makes sense. Jackie screwed up yes with the way she delivered the analogy. Despite all of that Teresa was the one in the wrong that set the entire thing in motion.

Teresa feels like she’s getting attacked by all of the women about this, so she storms off. Yes! Throwing a hissy fight and making a scene is the best way to get her point across. Melissa goes after Teresa, but she doesn’t want to speak to any of them.

Dolores doesn’t want to hear any of this anymore. Melissa and Margaret are sick of it too. It’s pointless for them to speak to Teresa about it because she’s never going to get it. It’s funny she’s so tired of it when she’s the one who made this happen in the first place. You made this bed, so climb on in and get comfy.
