Dina, Teresa, Nicole, Amber and Melissa were brought into a huge blowout fight during their Florida trip on the Sept. 28 episode of ‘RHONJ’ when Jim accused Bobby of cheating on Nicole.
Back in Jersey, the Giudices stayed back to spend time with their family, amidst their legal troubles. Also opting out of the vacation? Returning housewife Jacqueline Laurita. So did she make up with Teresa Giudice back on the home front? Read on to find out, plus get your full Real Housewives of New Jersey recap to see what went down during the Florida showdown!
Teresa Giudice Still Doesn’t Trust Jacqueline Laurita
After Jacqueline texted Teresa on last week’s episode, Teresa finally confronts her frenemy’s outreach.
Teresa reads Jacqueline’s text through tears during her confessional, and her husband Joe Giudice reveals that Jacqueline’s husband also reached out, wanting to get together for a glass of wine.
Regardless of Jacqueline’s support, Teresa says the trust has been broken and she can’t forget what she did in the past. (Jacqueline accused Joe of cheating on Teresa, back on another season’s reunion special.)
‘RHONJ’: Florida Vacation Part Two
While Teresa stayed in Jersey with her family, the rest of the housewives continued their Florida trip, and chaos ensued on vacation when Joe Gorga and the guys joined the ladies in the sunshine state.
We were treated to some highly unnecessary pool PDA, thanks to Nicole and her boyfriend Bobby who then got into a huge fight later in the night, thanks to Belvedere, Teresa points out. I don’t think vodka is to blame — I think his fear of committing to Nicole, calling her “so stupid” and locking himself in the bathroom is the problem.
(Remember that time when adults acted like 12 year olds? Oh right, this is the Housewives.)
Jim Accuses Bobby Of Cheating On Nicole
Forget about Bobby and Nicole’s couple fight. A much bigger problem came to the vacay mansion: Jim.
Amber’s hubby started a huge feud among the ladies because he chose to interfere in Nicole and Bobby’s relationship, dropping a huge bombshell. “You know when I’m going to laugh my balls off?” Jim asks Nicole’s twin Teresa. “Is when she finds out that he’s f***ing some girl in the condo he’s been keeping the whole time he’s been dating your sister.”
“If you mess with my twin, you mess with me,” Teresa says. Gotta love those one-liners.
Joe Gorga attempts breaks up the fight, but he doesn’t take Jim’s side. “In a man’s world, Jim is considered a bitch.”
Teresa & Joe Giudice Spend Time With Family Before Possible Jail Time
Back in Jersey, the cameras headed into Rosie and Kathy’s family dinner where Rosie told everyone that her relationship is over and she’s single once again. Poor Rosie!
On the other side of Jersey at another Italian dinner, Teresa and Joe take their kids to Joe’s brothers home for some good old fashioned family time. “Anything that you guys need, I’m here,” Joe’s mom tells the troubled couple who has been holding back tears throughout the entire episode.
We also learned that Joe has developed high blood pressure during his legal troubles. Probably the least of his problems…
HollywoodLifers, which RHONJ couple do you think is the most troubled? Nicole and Bobby or Teresa and Joe Giudice? Or are they all just completely ridiculous? Let us know!
