Part two of the ‘RHONJ’ California trip involved stripping, sweating and sobbing. Read on for more details!

The episode kicked off with Jacqueline Laurita admitting that she feels happy things seem to be going well for her and Teresa Giudice. However, she’s not 100 percent satisfied with the situation because she truly does miss Teresa’s friendship!

But before the drama (or reconciliation!) goes down, it’s time for surfing. Teresa, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and Joe Gorga all zip up their wetsuits and prepare to hit the waves. Naturally, Teresa treats this like an episode of The Apprentice.

“I’m going to keep trying until I ride that wave,” she says.

On the plus side, Joe Gorga and Teresa engage in some serious sibling bonding. And AS Albie Manzo says, “it’s almost too good to be true at this point.”

As the night falls, the heat turns up. A drunk Teresa complains that her foot is killing her, but she’s too drunk to notice. Jacqueline’s husband explains the itinerary for the rest of the week, and Joe Giudice questions their stop at the Golden Gate Bridge.

“What the f**k is the Golden Gate Bridge?” he asks.

Melissa eases the tension by suggesting a game of Truth and Dare which causes Joe Gorga to strip down to his boxers and run around the campfire.

Teresa interrupts the game by crying about her ankle though. Caroline suggests wrapping it, but what really brings Teresa to tears is seeing Jacqueline “look like a sad puppy.”

“I still haven’t given up on this friendship,” Teresa says.

Meanwhile things are heating up for the Manzo family. Lauren cries and locks herself in the RV after Chris and Albie make brotherly jabs at her. Caroline feels bad and realizes she’s been neglecting Lauren lately. So sad!

The next day the group goes canoeing and Melissa literally makes a splash. Melissa and Joe’s canoe tips over and Melissa totally freaks out when she hits the water. I must say it was the most hilarious thing ever. Melissa screams until she climbs Joe Giudice.

“I’ve never been so happy to touch Joe Giudice before in my life,” Melissa says.

Later that night, Teresa decides to confront Jacqueline about their friendship.

“Everything has been going well on this trip, but I’m wondering where we go from here?” Teresa asks, admitting that she felt hurt when Jacqueline “ambushed” her about going to jail – which was a report she read in a magazine.

Teresa says she doesn’t want Jacqueline to ask questions about her bankruptcy case, but Jacqueline says she’s just trying to be a good friend. Teresa says they should just part ways when they return to Jersey, but that doesn’t sit well with Jacqueline who begins to cry. Teresa cries too, but eventually the two make up.

“I’m sorry that I hurt you,” Jacqueline says to Teresa, as they embrace.

Hmm! It will definitely be interesting to see if they’re still friends when they return to the Garden State.
