Even though the Guidice and Gorga families have made up — they continue to backstab and dissapoint each other this Christmas.

Last week on  the July 24th episode Joe and Melissa Gorga were faced with a difficult decision: to stay at Teresa and Joe Guidice‘s Christmas party or leave and attend Kathy Wakile‘s Christmas party.  The two families have finally made amends after a season of fighting, so when Teresa found out Joe & Melissa were even considering leaving her house, she was very upset — especially since Teresa and her cousin Kathy no longer see eye to eye.

However, despite the boiling drama,  Joe and Melissa decided to leave Teresa’s.

“It really hurt me that my brother wanted to leave,” Teresa confesses.  But Teresa didn’t only blame her brother and sister-in-law. “I feel like Kathy is definitely not being a good cousin this Christmas… I would never take one of her brother from her.” And Teresa wasn’t the only hurt one when Gorga family left — Melissa & Joe’s daughter, Antonia Gorga, was crying!

Melissa & Joe unquestionably had a better time at Kathy’s party.

“At Teresa’s house we felt like strangers,” Melissa says. “At Kathy’s it’s like you can let your hair down…”

Aside from the never ending Guidice/Gorga drama, the rest of the housewives enjoyed their holiday.

Caroline Manzo’s husband, Albert, gave her the most thoughtful gift for Christmas. He re-proposed to her at the same spot he first popped the question! Apparently the first time, he never got down on one knee because he was so nervous. The running joke in the family was that the proposal was never “official” — so this Christmas (and several years later later), he officially made it official. What an adorable Christmas present!

Kathy Wakile’s children also gave her a thoughtful gift, supporting her and her plans to launch her own restaurant. Joe Gorga gave Melissa her music studio — and Louis Vitton luggage. Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter didn’t give her parents a present causing disappointment, and Joe Guidice didn’t give Teresa diamonds — oh no!

Overall it was a good Christmas for all — except the Guidice family who continued to talk about how they were upset Joe & Melissa Gorga left their party.
