After Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice’s violent brawl, Teresa seeks the help of Dr. V and Caroline Manzo.
The Gorgas and the Giudices are on the brink of destruction after a violent fight on the July 21 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Thankfully, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga have everyone and their mother trying to bring them back together.
Teresa Giudice Calls Caroline Manzo — ‘I Need Your Help’
Following Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice’s brawl, Teresa calls Caroline Manzo and asks for her help. Caroline knows that for Teresa to call her, things must be terrible. And after a bit of resistance, Caroline decides to help and heads to the retreat.
Meanwhile, Dr. V (aka Dr. Venus Nicolino of Bravo’s LA Shrinks) arrives and seems to knock some sense into everyone. She says this feud is not about blaming one person, but coming to terms with the idea that everyone’s at fault in some way or another. Oh yeah, she also says that her vagina proves she’s Italian — whatever that means.
Melissa Gorga and Teresa fight at the breakfast table and it’s obvious that these two really hate each other. Teresa tells Dr. V, “see — this is the problem.”
Dr. V Requests One-On-One Time
Dr. V takes Joe Gorga upstairs to speak with him alone. He reveals that he’s not interested in repairing his relationship with Teresa because she’s his “worst enemy.” But the doctor suggests that Teresa’s problem may be that she’s overprotective and feels Joe can’t make the right decisions for himself (ie. picking a suitable wife). Joe says it’s a possibility, but he’s just not interested in fixing anything at this time.
Caroline arrives and makes small talk with Melissa, Kathy Wakile, Rich Wakile and Rosie Pierri while Teresa makes her way upstairs.
Teresa and Joe talk a bit with the doctor and she realizes that what they need most is time together — without husbands, wives or friends. Teresa and Joe hug it out and cry a little.
However, that’s not all. We’re not at the happy ending yet. In next week’s episode, we’re still at the retreat, so anything can happen. Tables can still be flipped, people.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Can Joe and Teresa repair their relationship? Should they give up? And how do you feel about Joe Giudice staying in his bedroom and not appearing to care about fixing anything?
