Dina has returned! To the delight of many, the long-lost Manzo appeared in the Sept. 9 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ as she made it clear whose side she’s taking in the feud between Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo!
While Dina’s appearance was the most captivating moment of the episode, we can’t forget how we got there.
Joe Giudice Messes Up — Again!
Joe Giudice managed to make himself look like a real doofus again as he attempted at preparing his daughters for their first day of school. Milania was none too pleased with the way he handled her lunch and name tag — shame on you, Joe! Can you do anything right?
Not only did he mess up the girls’ lunches, but he managed to compare Kathy Wakile to a stress reliever — those little creatures that have eyes pop out when squeezed.
Oh, and watch out, Joe. If you cheat on Teresa, she’ll “break your legs!”
Kathy Addresses The Toast Diss
Teresa makes a house call to Kathy’s in order to pick up a pair of shoes that were left behind after her quick exit from Napa. While Kathy quickly rehashed the toast diss from their west coast vacation, Teresa downplayed it with a childlike excuse. (What’s new?) ”I want positive people in my life, good food, good sex, good friends, good family. That’s what life’s all about,” Teresa told Kathy.
The Wakiles make a trip to Maryland so Victoria can tour the University. This was a segment that could have totally been left on the cutting room floor. Do YOU agree?
Fabellini Launch Party
Back In Jersey, Teresa throws a party to help launch her “adult drink” Fabellini. Not only did Teresa diss Jacqueline Laurita by not inviting her, but she further drove a wrench into her former friendship with Caroline Manzo by inviting the head honcho’s estranged sister Dina!
Teresa immediately brings up her feud with Caroline to feel out Dina’s loyalty. Clearly, Dina sipped a bit too much of the hard stuff that “makes her burp” because she totally sides with Teresa!
“Holding on to anger makes you ugly. Let it go and stay pretty,” Dina tells Teresa as they both laugh and head back to the party.
While Dina’s appearance was short-lived, I’d certainly like to see her make a permanent return. And let’s bring back Danielle Staub while we’re at it!
Did anyone else see Teresa admit she MISSES Danielle on Watch What Happens Live last night? Sound off and leave a comment below!
