'RHONJ' Recap: Teresa Giudice And Jacqueline Laurita's Devastating 'Friendship Divorce'

Sun, June 17, 2012 11:33pm EST by 15 Comments

Finally Jacqueline blows up at Teresa and accuses her of being selfish in a very heated screaming match. Read on for more details!

Once again the tabloids got in the middle of friendship on the June 17 episode of RHONJ.

This episode centered around Life & Style magazine’s report that Teresa Giudice is headed to jail, but began with Teresa and Joe Giudice deciding to build an apartment above their garage. But what about their bankruptcy? More on that later.

Jacqueline skypes with her troubled daughter Ashley Holmes who was visitng her dad in Texas.

“I feel like she’s so far gone I can’t even help her,” Jacqueline says.

Meanwhile, Lauren Manzo opens up about her diet – something that she can’t seem to stick to.

Back to the Giudice drama though. Teresa and Joe Giudice  visit their lawyer — who apparently told Life & Style that Teresa was headed behind bars — to figure out how to escape their financial woes.

“What can I do to get out of my bankruptcy?,” Teresa asks her lawyer.

Unfortunately, she finds out that there isn’t really an end in sight, but that they are starting to move forward. Teresa takes a moment to commend Jacqueline’s support throughout her financial crisis.

“Jacqueline’s been a good supporter,” Teresa says.

But Jacqueline is at home stressing about the latest tabloid report. She says she can’t tell fact from fiction.

Back at the Gorga house Melissa, Kathy Wakile and their friends gossip on the front porch about the article. Kathy said she wants to bring it up to Teresa, but she’s scared about how she would react. Melissa doesn’t flinch at the news and goes on to powder her face.

“I’m not overly cocnerened about the articles because I don’t believe them.” Melissa says, suggesting that Teresa is paid for the articles. “I feel like they’re totally fine, They’re good. I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”

But clearly things aren’t fine. Teresa shows up to Jacqueline’s house who is in tears.

“I’ve tried my best to help you,” Jacqueline says, sobbing.

And Teresa turns defensive when Jaqueline suggests Teresa is paid for tabloid articles. Then their argument turns into a fight about their friendship. Jacqueline says that Teresa never asks about her issues – like what’s going on with Ashley. And then Jaqueline brings up that the other night she saw Teresa tweeting Danielle Staub.

“What made you hate me so much that you would talk to someone who hated me?” Jaqueline asks.

Teresa explains that it had something to do with Melissa and then her response was far fron calm.

“Whose f*****g side is Jaqueline on: Mine or Melissa’s?” Teresa says.

Yikes! Mid-fight Caroline Manzo shows up who says that her friendship with Teresa is totally over and has been for awhile. Teresa asks: “Was my apology about the cookbook not enough?”

“It was an empty apology,” Caroline says. “There is no more friendship.”

And Jacqueline feels the same way.

“I’m going to distance myself from you and your family,” Jauqeline says. “I don’t want to be part of this anymore.”

“I feel like I’m going through a friendship divorce,” Teresa says. “It will just never be the same.”

Oh no! And from the looks of next week’s preview — a reconciliation is unlikely.

The show keeps me amused….The houses, cars,trips and clothing – yet, all in all very shallow people. Interesting to see how Theresa parades around like she is ‘something’ with her 1″ forehead, ugly husband & spoiled daughter (Gia). Who would want her life? Then Melissa who has a forehead up to the top of her head, hooker-type clothing & stirs the pot of trouble…I would like to see Caroline’s sister back on the show & more of Kathy’s sister. Come on Bravo – get with it!!!

I told you the only reason Caroline was mad at Teresa was about what she wrote in her cookbook about Christopher. The problem for Caroline is that Teresa only said what everybody in the free world was thinking.

You are 100% right. The show would be better without Caroline. She is so mean. She sticks her nose where it doesn’t belong. She is a terrible excuse for a human being.

Why is Caroline such a bully? She truly NEEDS therapy. Her husband has been in trouble. Her sons were sued for fighting. She rather say don’t fix what’s not broken than be a good person who forgives. The mercy she shows is the mercy she will receive- which is none. She is a genuine adult bully and she was probably always a bully. Caroline grow up already. You need to feel better about yourself by hurting others. Teresa is getting this because of how she treated Danielle. What goes around comes around. Caroline is next.

I so agree! I hate Caroline. She calls human beings garbage! She will never be forgiven for her tremendous amount of sins because she never forgives. She is headed to hell!

Teresa was right, this was an ambush. Both Jac and Caroline are boring boring people with nothing to offer. Causing drama and staying n the middle of everyone elses business is all they can do to grab some face time with the cameras. Jacqueline is no friend I would want.

I just can’t see how anyone can be on Teresa’s side. The woman is totally out there. She has lost touch with all reality. Neither she or here loser husband will go to jail because they seem to be the money makers for Bravo. Shame on Bravo. I just can’t watch this anymore. Most of the scenes are so scripted and you know that no one talks like that.

First of all, its nobody’s business what’s going on with her finances but hers and her husbands. Jacqueline needs to get a job and a life. Caroline too! That conversation was between Jacqueline and Teresa not her. Jacqueline is two faced too. She jumped down Dina’s throat to defend Danielle and when Danielle contacts Teresa to say Melissa was spreading rumors, she turns on Teresa. Even Ashley got on her own mother about how two-faced she was.

Do not fret, the past 24 hrs has revealed that Joe IS going to do prison time and Teresa is not out of the woods for doing time herself. Stay tuned to the real news, not the gossip and belated shows airing.

Jacqueline set Teresa up & that’s why Teresa got so irate. Jacquline plays the victim, I see right thru her! She acts like her feelings are hurt and concerned for Teresa. But what really is going on, she wanted to bust Tresea out on tv regarding building carport, garage hoping it will get her in more trouble with bankruptcy court. Jacqulines husband try’s to act like jacquline is a kind caring person that gets railroaded by people. False!! She is a drama queen just like her daughter said. She should start minding her own business like her daughter & quit starting drama!
