‘RHONJ’ Finale: Teresa & Joe Giudice Sentenced To Prison
The emotional season finale began with a flash-forward, six months ahead of the actual episode, showing viewers footage from Teresa and Joe‘s jail sentencing.
Now, onto the finale fighting. Flashback six months…
Teresa Giudice Gets Support From Melissa Gorga
Melissa comes over to hang out with Teresa and her girls at the Giudice residence, and Teresa mentions how nice it is to have her sister-in-law’s support.
“Obviously I know the twins are aggravated with Teresa, but her sentencing is coming up,” Melissa says. “She is going through something so much larger than any of our issues can be. I’m not here to give her more stress.”
Teresa tells her girls they need to always be there for each other, and she keeps on a strong front, while the stress is obviously taking a toll on her.
“I have to be strong because things are going to happen in life. Things are not going to be peaches and cream,” Teresa says. “Not everyday is going to be smooth unfortunately, but I’m a survivor. This is life.”
Twins Teresa & Nicole Gang Up On Teresa Giudice
Unfortunately, Melissa’s sentiment to be easygoing on Teresa was not shared by the twins. Quite frankly, they’re out for blood when it comes to the jail bird…or at least an apology.
Dina and the twins are prepping for the Ladybug charity ball, and that’s when they start talking about not allowing any drama into the event. (Yeah, right.)
We know that twin Teresa is not fond of Teresa Giudice after the Victoria Gotti drama, but she definitely took it a bit too far. No matter what your feelings are about the Giudices, is it really necessary to bash them? They’re already heading to prison.
“Teresa, you just sh*t on my family. I would never do that to you. But that’s why yours is getting destroyed now. Well, it’s true. Really. Karma’s a b*tch,” the twin says before hitting her wrists together, saying clink clink. “Empires fall.”
And that’s not even where she stops.
“With everything she’s going through, she really has time to just talk crap on other people…I think the prayers are about to stop.”
WATCH: Teresa Fight With The Twins, Nicole & Teresa, At Ladybug Ball
Those disses wind up in a huge fight. Teresa and Nicole are royally pissed off at the other Teresa and Amber who start the night by saying they don’t owe an apology, insisting that they didn’t start the rumor that Teresa’s husband Rino slept with her mom.
Amber pulled aside Rino to tell her side of the story, and they basically agree to disagree, but do make nice.
As for Rino’s wife Teresa, that’s not the case. For someone who didn’t want to bring any drama to the event, she had no qualms about pulling Teresa Giudice aside. She calls Victoria “trash” and compares her to an “animal.”
Teresa Giudice actually remains extremely calm, but the twins can’t even help themselves. They ask her, “Are you that stupid?” They tell her to “shush.” The point fingers at her. And that’s where we actually see a new side of Teresa. She takes the high road, and they hug and make up.
“Teresa reminds me of myself of how she gets so heated about the stupidest stuff,” Giudice says. “Try to be happy every day because you never know what the next is going to bring.”
In the end, all of the housewives are actually on Team Teresa Giudice. But those rekindled friendships don’t stick for too long — check out this sneak peek of the RHONJ reunion to see the ladies gang up on Teresa.
Teresa Giudice Looks Back On Life Before She Heads To Jail
“What’s happening now, please, I cry all the time,” Teresa reveals, as she hugs her kids at the charity ball, admitting that she feels physically sick.
“I’m worried about Joe, I’m worried about my kids. I always felt like I couldn’t face losing anyone close to me…I don’t know. Crazy.”
After the charity ball wraps up, real footage from Joe and Teresa’s jail sentencing is shown.
The Housewives React To Teresa and Joe Giudice’s Jail Sentence
Cameras head into each of the housewives’ homes, as they all react live to the prison sentence, while the Giudices are at the courthouse.
Kathy and Rosie cry for the kids. Jacqueline calls Kathy, deeply worried that Joe is going to be deported. “What about the kids? Where are they going?”
Jim and Amber read Joe’s statement, as he’s at court, waiting for Teresa’s fate to be determined. Finally, at 5:02PM on the day of their sentencing, Teresa is ordered to 15 months behind bars, and all of the housewives are in shock. Jacqueline and Kathy break down in tears.
