It’s been quite the week for Teresa and Joe Giudice — in real life, that is. Fresh off of the reality TV couple’s jail sentencing, a brand new episode of ‘RHONJ’ aired, catching us up on what happened before they were ordered behind bars.
The ladies of Jersey were filming the Season 6 reunion, while we, the viewers at home, were watching the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. We bet that the main topic of discussion at the reunion shoot was Teresa Giudice‘s imminent jail time, but in TV time, we’re still figuring out what happened between Jim and Bobby in Florida. Read on to find out what went down on the Housewives vacay on the Oct. 5 episode– we promise, there were plenty of affair allegations.
‘RHONJ’ Fight: Jim Says Teresa’s Husband, Rino, ‘F***ed’ Her Mom
Let me just start off by saying that I had the honor of watching the uncensored version of the Oct. 5 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The F-bombs really enhanced my viewing of the drunken Florida fight that picked up from last week, but really, it all boils down to the fact that Jim accused the twins’ mom of “f***ing” twin Teresa‘s husband Rino.
“I’m used to Jim’s vulgarities and being attacked by him,” said Teresa, “but what hurt me was all the girls that I thought were my friends were talking about these rumors behind my back” — aka, Dina Manzo, who actually did nothing wrong, but regardless, Nicole tells her to get a “pair of balls.” Classy!
Amber flips the eff out on her hubby, but Jim insists that he was just protecting her. There’s too much pathetic insanity in this scene to recap what’s really going on between this adult couple, but all I can really focus on is the fact that Jim is still drinking. (For the record, it looks like he’s sipping on a mimosa of sorts, to solidify Joe Gorga‘s prolific words, “in a man’s world, Jim is considered a bitch.”)
Teresa & Joe Giudice Leave Kids For Date Night
Back in Jersey, Teresa Giudice is far away from the Florida drama. “There’s things going on in our lives. I can’t just go get up and leave,” Teresa says. Well, Joe Giudice surprises her with an overnight hotel stay in the city.
“Joe and I, we used to go out more often,” Teresa says, “but now, we’ve cut back a little bit.” Awkwardddd.
Another zinger? Teresa tells her daughter Milania, “if you don’t start behaving,” she’s going to go to boarding school. Eeeeeek. Bad timing, given the recent events in the Giudice’s lives.
Their lavish date night is filled with flowing wine, oysters and sex-talk. Joe cheers to their girls, their health and for being the “luckiest guy in the world because I’m married to you.”
Aw, Joe, you’re so sweet. Well, that’s until you called your food a “sloppy vagina.”
Dina Manzo Throws Jim Out Of Florida Vacation
The morning after is never fun. When the Boca Raton crew wakes up, after their “horrific” fight, Dina infuriates Amber by asking Jimbo to leave. “What I’m going to do now is I’m going to ask you kindly to leave.” Yes, Dina. Yes.
Teresa and Rino also head home, but in a much calmer manner than Amber and Jim. (They return to the house later for a fun sh*t-talking dinner.)
“She’s kicking me out for what my husband said?” Amber says, in between F-bombs-galore. “That’s not fair!” Yet, she takes her husband’s side, calling everyone else “awful people.” She even pulls the sick card.
Now that the four musketeers are gone, what to do? Um, drink. “The poison has left the building,” Joe Gorga announces, clinking his glass. Salud! Then, they go on a booze cruise — “let’s get the shots rolling!” — and they cheer Dina for throwing Jim out of the club. Unfortunately, she’s not really down to party. “Listen,” Dina says. “I’m a boring bitch.”
Jacqueline Laurita Still Wants To Help Teresa Giudice
Teresa hasn’t responded to Jacqueline Laurita‘s text, and Jacqueline is hurting from their separation.
“I do want to be there for her, and I guess because she’s not letting me be there for her, it’s a little painful,” she tells her husband Chris. She also confides in Kathie.”If she wants to talk to me, she’ll reach out to me…and I’ll be there.” Kathie doesn’t feel the same sentiment. She’s so over Teresa. “I’ve come to the realization that I’m not going to offer my help or my love or my heart to someone that isn’t willing.”
Meanwhile, Jacqueline and her hubby also have a date night. “It’s very important to us to live within our means so now, our date nights could be just saying at home.” Hmm, maybe Teresa should respond to her so can learn a little something?
