'RHONJ' Reunion Recap: Caroline Manzo Tells Teresa Giudice 'We Never Had A Friendship!'

The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion part 2 revealed many truths, but the most shocking of all was how distant Caroline and Teresa have become!

It’s incredible to see how quickly the Jersey Housewives have turned their backs on Teresa after a season of supporting her throughout her feud with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. The RHONJ reunion two-part special was more telling than ever — and it’s safe to assume Teresa will be the outcast in season 4!

The reunion kicked off with the Housewives talking about what else, but their sex lives. It’s well-known after season 3 that Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga likes to get it on. Melissa admitted in the reunion Joe Gorga likes to have sex two times a day. And Teresa sat there with a smirk on her face, acting like her husband is the same. And when Caroline was questioned about her sex life, she refused to answer and said it’s her own personal business — not a surprise.

Then the housewives changed conversation to a more serious matter–  about a housewife who left in season 2, Dina Manzo — Caroline’s sister. Caroline confessed that her and Dina are no longer on speaking terms. The reason? Rumors and lies told by a certain someone. Caroline didn’t reveal many details, but it was implied that Teresa is to blame for Caroline and Dina’s feud.

Caroline yelled at Teresa saying, “you’re full of s***,” when Teresa denied she had anything to do with their split. And Teresa fired back asking “what happened to you?”

The housewives followed up the fight by discussing Kathy Wakile‘s daughter, Victoria, brain tumor when she was 10-years-old. Kathy teared up as she spoke about the tumor, but then Teresa interrupted and made it all about her, saying she has such a positive outlook on life now because Victoria survived the tumor. Kathy, Caroline and Melissa all rolled their eyes at Teresa.

Bravo host Andy Cohen brought up the word “unattended,” referring to the episode when Teresa left her daughter Audriana unattended and Kathy came to her rescue. This spun out into a full blown fight about why Teresa and Kathy are how they are now — unfriendly. All of the housewives sided with Kathy once again making Teresa look like the crazy one.

But according to Teresa the number one reason  she “distant” herself from Kathy was because of Kathy’s husband, Rich Wakile. Andy Cohen corrected Teresa, saying it’s “distance,” not “distant.” It was hilariously funny, but awkward for Teresa.

Later in the reunion Andy asked Teresa what she regrets saying about Melissa on national TV. Teresa — not surprisingly — couldn’t even think of an answer! It took Melissa reading all of Teresa’s insults for her to come up with one! And what was her most shameful insult? When she said Melissa is like “poison” to the Gorga family.

Fairly, Andy asked Melissa the same question. Melissa said her biggest regret was saying “at least I pay my bills,” to Teresa on national TV.

But the drama really heated up when Caroline got back in the action. All season long there hasn’t been much intense tension or fighting between Caroline and Teresa. But clearly there was a lot going on behind cameras that we didn’t know about.

At the end of the reunion Caroline said to Teresa “We never had a friendship . We had an acquaintance,” after Caroline said her friendship with missing housewife Jacqueline Laurita was a real one.

It will be interesting to see if they all become friends again in season 4!
