‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Recap — Joe Gorga And Teresa Reunite, But Not For Long!

Sun, June 12, 2011 11:51pm EST by 5 Comments

Joe Gorga finally responded to Teresa’s apology letter by committing to pay a visit to Gia’s gymnastic meet. But when Joe shows up later than expected, a hopeful reconciliation is no longer in the cards.

Poor Gia! Teresa’s daughter is absolutely the cutest thing on the show. I was so sad when she choked during her gymnastics meet because she was looking in the crowd to see if Uncle Joe Gorga had arrived. For the sake of the children, these Italian housewives need to put their own problems aside and reunite as a family – prontissimo!

Here’s what happened on the June 12 episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey:

Joe Gorga called Teresa and asked about her daughter, Gia. Teresa invited him to her gymnastics competition and told him it started at 1 o’clock. The adults seemed to be cordial and I thought this meet would finally be the much-anticipated happy reunion between both families. However, Joe & Melissa showed up late causing Gia to choke during her meet and shed a tear.

Sure, Gia brushed it off her shoulders and all the kids  got along after the meet, but the parents – Teresa and her husband, Joe Guidice – and Joe and Melissa Gorga, barely spoke. Later, Melissa cried and said she feels neglected by her husband’s family. Joe Gorga agreed and said he can’t respect his family until his family can respect his family.

But before Melissa was drowning in tears, she was pursuing her career as a singer during this week’s episode. Apparently she has a songwriter and is very serious about this endeavor. We even got a glimpse of her first song, and I must say it wasn’t that bad.

If I had to choose between her singing in tonight’s episode or riding a mechanical bull( in the last episode)—I would choose this one, hands down.

Caroline Manzo was also pursuing a dream – to be a radio show host! The housewife had an interview and it looks promising. Her show will be based off her blog and will focus on the theme of what else, but family. I wouldn’t be opposed to tuning in.

She would definitely give better advice on family than her counterparts Teresa and Melissa. It looks like I’m not the only one getting tired of this family feud though; Jacqueline locks the enemies in her home until they sort things out once and for all in next week’s episode.
Until next Sunday…

These NJ folks are really over the top. I couldn’t help chuckling when we saw the two Thanksgiving banquets, and after all that Joey Gorga drama about his fadduh, the parents were nowhere to be seen at either meal.

We got rid of Danielle, only to inherit Joey Gorga. Gag!

i love joe and melissa. teresa trys to come off as the victum and she is not. she is a bully. she wants everyone thinling she is the one who is hurt her and she had nothing to do with what is going on . maybe her brother joe don’t like his brother in law . cause he cheated on teresa and he also has a baby with another woman . teresa has lied to her about everything. so why shouldn’t her brother be upset with the man. there is more going on than what we see. but to think that tersa had nothing to do with why her parents acting the way they do . you have to be living in another world. teresa husband is a dirt bag.

I’ll admit it, I occasionally watch NJ’s and as far as apologies, Teresa has already tried to make amends, for what, we haven’t the real scuttle butt. There’s something deeper going on in this family fued, whether it’s Joe Gorga’s distain towards his brother-in-law Joe or something involving his sister, he behaves like an animal. To be continued. I don’t see a resolution anytime soon, they’re all too hot headed.

I think you’re right, this family is not going to make peace anytime soon, perhaps temporary peace but it will not last. Joe Gorga has some nerve to think that his wife does NOT have anything to do with how the family is broken apart. He is in denial big time! Melissa is the culprit and everyone sees this to be true.Being mad at eachother for a long time serves as a wedge between them that they can’t fix with one episode, time will tell. Teresa can do her part and if it doesn’t work, oh well, she at least tried. As per Joe G and Melissa and her hairy-spider-like sisters, they can all go away, no one likes any of these fakers. Kudos to Jacqueline, she did her part to help. Something is seriously wrong with Joe G, you can’t even speak to the man without wanting to reach out and choking the daylights outta him, he’s so uncooperative in any sense of the word.
