Joe finally decides that he wants to make amends with his big sister but she isn’t excited at all about going to counseling — Plus, Caroline Manzo’s brother marries his partner and reveals how hard it was to admit he was gay.
Teresa Giudice is one tough lady! After fighting for the past several episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe Giudice accepts the fact that his relationship with Teresa Giudice will not get better — unless they seek family therapy! But on the June 3 episode of RHONJ, Joe begs Teresa to see a therapist, but what does she say?
Joe sends Teresa a long and heartfelt text about how he wants his sister back in his life. But she starts laughing when she reads the text and is offended that he’d ask her to go a therapist. Instead, she thinks he should go alone because she doesn’t have any problems!
Meanwhile, Caroline Manzo‘s brother finally decides to get married. The entire Manzo clan, with the exception of Dina Manzo, head to Chicago for the union. But even though Caroline’s brother invites Teresa and Joe — Caroline still isn’t ready to forgive Teresa for causing rifts in her own family.
Caroline is doing her best to not get into a huge fight with Teresa because she doesn’t want to overshadow the wedding. She actually calls herself a “ticking time bomb” and is hoping she doesn’t have to encounter Teresa much at all.
There was a running theme in the show — don’t hide who you really are. Kathy Wakile‘s sister talked about how she told her family she was a lesbian and she got very emotional at one point. It was a refreshing episode because it was a change from the normal petty banter.
At the end of the episode Teresa still isn’t sure if she should go to counseling — should she?
