Teresa plays nice, while Kathy and Melissa put on their fake smiles and try to win a new ally in Caroline!
After last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, where a battle exploded between the Gorga and Giudice families at a christening, it’s completely surprising that Teresa Giudice acts as the bigger person when she sees her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga prepping backstage at a runway show. Instead of completely ignoring Melissa — like most women would do in her situation — Teresa walks over and says hi!
But Teresa’s act of friendliness only annoys Melissa. “She acted exactly how I expected,” Melissa tells the cameras. “I knew she’d walk in there hugs and kisses, try to make conversation as if we didn’t just have an explosive christening. I knew she’d do that.”
“Melissa doesn’t faze me,” Teresa then tells the cameras. “Do I look fazed?” She shakes her head no.
But when Teresa’s BFF Caroline Manzo arrives, Teresa can’t keep her cool as she watches Melissa and her cousin Kathy Wakile pretend to be nice to Caroline.
“I see Melissa and Kathy trying to kiss up to Caroline,” says Teresa. “They can kiss up to her all they want. I know that she’s truly my friend.”
Uh oh! Be sure to check out an all new episode of RHONJ tonight, May 23, on Bravo!
