Farewell, Jersey! The ladies of ‘RHONJ’ sat down together in their bedazzled dresses one final time (quite possibly, literally, for Teresa Giudice) for the third installment of the Season 6 reunion.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey spent most of the Nov. 11 reunion bickering about the rumor of the season — why did Amber‘s husband Jim accuse Rino of hooking up with his wife Teresa Aprea‘s mother, and why did Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice spread that story? — but in the end, it all came down to Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s jail sentencing. Does she regret doing RHONJ? Read on for your full recap to find out.
‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Reunion Part 3 Recap: Andy Cohen Flips Out On Jim
When Andy Cohen tells a Housewives‘ husband that he’s “very rude” — and then doesn’t ask Bravo to edit it out! — you know that there’s a good fight brewing.
Amber’s hubby Jim spent practically all season making enemies, and he had no intention of making nice on the part three of the reunion.
The ladies, plus Jim, Rino and Bobby, sat down with Andy to hash out the mother-effing rumor (literally) that spread ’round the Garden State faster than Teresa can flip a table, but Jim kept his same sentiment — he can do no wrong, but can place blame on everyone else.
“You are very rude,” Andy says point blank, repeatedly. Jim somehow takes that as a compliment and doesn’t even try to save face. Instead, he lashes out against Dina.
“Teresa, you know what’s really sad?” Jim started. “I will apologize formally for my drunken a** behavior…I never once on camera treated it like Dina…what she should have done was pulled you aside off camera.”
Seriously, Jim? You’re really bringing Dina back into this? Apparently he forgot that the RHONJ ladies all hate him because Teresa defended Dina who fired back at Jim. “Stay in your lane, Jim. Slow your roll. Slow your roll.”
Ugh, Dina. How will we survive without your fab one-liners?
Teresa Aprea Makes Light Of Teresa Giudice’s Jail Sentence
Forget about Dina — twin Teresa still blames jailbird Teresa for helping spread the rumor about her mother. (Remember when she “clink-clinked” her hands together, as if they were cuffs? Well that clip was replayed again, and the ladies duked it out.)
Teresa A. famously said that “empires fall” and Teresa G. bounced right back saying, “They fall and they get back up.”
Still, the twin had to keep dissing Teresa, calling her out for not having a “conscious” or a “heart.” She even went as far to say that she deserves her jail sentencing: “You can’t hurt people in life that bad and not expect to get hurt back.”
Not really cool.
‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Reunion: Teresa Giudice Apologizes To Her Fans
The elephant in the room was finally cleared at the very end of the reunion. Andy asked the Housewives what they took away from the season, as he always does, and Teresa gave a heartfelt, remorseful response.
“I just want to apologize to all my fans out there that I left down through all this,” she confessed. “I’m going to make myself a better person.”
So does she regret signing up for the series that she’s starred on for six season? “80% yes, 20% no,” she admits, adding that the best part to come out of the franchise is her cookbooks.
“Joe and I were just trying to make a living,” Teresa said. “We have four beautiful daughters.”
She wraps up telling Andy that this will probably be her final reunion, and the tears start flowing.
