So much for ‘new beginnings.’ On the Aug. 14 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ Teresa and Jacqueline tried to play nice. But things quickly went from bad to worse, when Teresa brought up an issue they had FIVE YEARS AGO.
Remember that infamous RHONJ fight Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline had on her porch in 2011? The one where Jacqueline questioned Teresa on whether or not she was going to jail, based on a magazine interview she did — the same one where Caroline made an epic entrance that shocked Teresa? Yeah, how could you forget it. Well, even though Teresa told Jacqueline she wanted to start fresh and work on “new beginnings,” their dinner date turned to s*** when Teresa brought that incident up.
“I would never ask you your personal business,” Teresa said before Jacqueline quipped, “You put it in a tabloid!”
“I’m talking about getting paid for something. It’s nobody’s business. You shouldn’t give a s*** what I got paid for, and I wouldn’t give a s*** what you got paid for. You were going through legal issues, and I never asked you a question,” Teresa explained.
“Mine wasn’t a criminal case. I wouldn’t file a fraudulent bankruptcy like you did. It’s totally different,” Jacqueline calmly said, and that’s what set Teresa off.
“See. That’s a f***ing low blow. That’s a low f***ing blow. Joe! Let’s go. Right now! Let’s go,” Teresa screamed before storming out of Jacqueline’s house with her husband trailing behind with his suitcase of wine.
Clearly, they have a lot to work on, but Teresa said it’s time to close the chapter on her friendship with Jacqueline, so that may never happen. And what’s interesting is that during their fight, Teresa said Jacqueline, Caroline, Kathy, and Melissa once all ganged up on her — which we knew — but during that conversation, she also said Joe Gorga told her not to trust Jacqueline. Jacqueline found this to be odd since he told her the same about Teresa. So was someone lying? (Probably Teresa.) Jacqueline was eager to find out, so she called Joe during their dinner date and asked him, point blank, who he told not to trust the other. He sort of beat around the bush with his answer, but he said he once told Teresa to be careful who she trusts. He said he never mentioned Jacqueline by name.
Elsewhere this week, Melissa‘s kids walked in a fashion show in NYC again, so she invited Teresa and Milania to come watch. Dolores dealt with the fact that her dog may be dying, and Siggy learned a lot from her kids this week, especially what parts of herself she needs to work on.
