'RHONJ' Recap: Teresa Giudice Fights Kathy Wakile Over Stolen Recipe

Mon, July 23, 2012 10:24am EDT by Add first Comment

When Kathy accuses Teresa of stealing her mother’s recipe, Teresa calls her ‘cheap’ & ‘passive aggressive.’ Me-OW! Whose side are YOU on?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s July 22 found Teresa Giudice and the gang doing what they do best: drinking! Teresa and hubby Joe took a trip to the vineyard, where Teresa revealed that she wants to “brand” herself with the unveiling of her new drink, Fabellini.

Teresa and Joe then had a private tasting at America’s Oldest Winery, and thankfully a car service was provided for the couple to get home, considering Joe’s past with DUI charges. Teresa took a surprise opportunity to slam Bethenny Frankel‘s Skinny Girl brand by explaining that Fabellini doesn’t taste as “diet-y.” Ouch!

The jabs continued at Teresa’s book signing, where Kathy Wakile pointed out a few of her mother’s recipes in Teresa’s cookbook. Teresa said that was a “cheap, passive-aggressive shot.” Ouch again!

Meanwhile, Joe and Melissa Gorga were spending some quality time with their kids — Gino, Joey and Antonia — when Melissa’s songwriter arrived  to discuss “moving forward.” Later, at a photo shoot with her adorable daughter Antonia close behind, Melissa admitted that it’s hard for her to be “cocky.” Maybe that had something to do with Joe claiming he “owns” her during the shoot!

Elsewhere, Caroline Manzo and daughter Lauren went to visit the location of the new makeup salon they’re opening together. Though Caroline expressed concern about the business venture, she conceded that her daughter is a “fighter” and can handle opening up the salon. It seems like the pair is ready to get Kafface up and running!

The husbands tried to drown out their wives’ drama with a meeting about the upcoming trip to Napa, but Joe G. clearly didn’t go to reconcile, because he kept bringing up issues Jacqueline Laurita had with Danielle Staub. Talk about digging up the past! Chris Laurita said he was annoyed to learn what Joe G. had been saying about his family all over town.

We can’t wait to see what happens next week when the whole gang goes to Napa — together!

Whose RV would you rather ride in, HollywoodLifers? The Gorgas and Giudices’, the Manzos and Lauritas’ or the Wakiles’?
