Screams, tears and emotional revelations all took place on part one of the three-part ‘RHONJ’ season 4 reunion! Read on for ALL the details!
Part one of the Real Houswives of New Jersey reunion was apparently the tip of the iceberg for the three-part throwdown. But from Lauren Manzo swearing at Teresa Giudice to the always-poised Kathy Wakile going crazy on Tre, we can’t imagine it getting much worse!
Flashback: Season 3 Reunion
The reunion kicked off by discussing the season 3 reunion — which Jacqueline Laurita didn’t go to. Of course, that was the big question: WHY didn’t she show up to the reunion?
We learned at the end of the season 4 finale that it was because Jacqueline was on the verge of a breakdown, but there was a tidbit more to the story. Jacqueline was apparently “so sick” of Teresa’s Posche fashion show set-up that she couldn’t bear to see her again! Teresa wastes no time to battle back and shouts that she never planted Angelo who revealed that Melissa Gorga used to “dance” for him — which wasn’t true.
“Prove it b***h,” Teresa screams to Jacqueline.
Jacqueline goes on to attack Teresa and say that she has a recording of one of Teresa’s friends revealing that Teresa did in fact set up Melissa at the fashion show, but that it’s “illegal” to share that recording on the reunion. Hmm! So, guess she did?
Moderator/host Andy Cohen asks if Teresa has seen the other housewives since the Posche fashion show last year and she says “no,” she hasn’t — except for Melissa at her daughter’s birthday party. Then in some crazy way Teresa says that she has never spoken badly about her brother or Melissa and that totally throws Jacqueline over the edge. Andy is understandably upset and just keeps on saying “I want to move on.”
And so do we!
Jacqueline’s Relationship With Her Daughter Ashley Today
Teresa wasn’t the only drama in Jacqueline’s life; she was also going through a tough time with her daughter, Ashley Holmes. Jacqueline says that she’s never been happier with Ashley, but then Andy asks about Jacqueline’s financial woes.
Andy then asks Jacqueline about her austistic son, Nicholas, and proceeds to play a very emotional montage which ends with him saying “I Love you.” The cameras are back on Jacqueline as she’s bawling into Caroline’s lap.
“He’s going to say it again,” Caroline tells Jacqueline as she rubs her back.
Teresa says “she doesn’t understand” which triggers Caroline to tell Teresa to “shut up” many, many times.
The Truth About The California Trip
Even though it seemed like everything was OK between Jacqueline and Teresa in Cali — it wasn’t. Jacqueline took to the reunion to reveal that she heard Teresa talking about her when the cameras weren’t rolling.
“I overheard you say [to Melissa] ‘I hate Jacqueline I can’t even look at her f-ing face,'” Jacqueline says.
“So what caused this break-up?” Andy asks.
“All you cared about was exposing them. You wanted me to call her [Melissa] out that she was a stripper,” Jacqueline says to Teresa.
Jacqueline goes on to say that that was the only reason Tre was happy to have Melissa and Kathy on the show — so she could expose who they really are!
“I never called her a stripper,” Teresa shoots back, leading Jacqueline to scream at Teresa and tell her she’s “sick” and “going to hell.”
“Any hope of getting back to that place [in Nappa]? Andy asks.
“I just don’t know. I don’t know,” Teresa says.
Jacqueline doesn’t even say anything.
Lauren Manzo’s Shocking Weight Loss
The focus turns to Caroline Manzo who’s been suffering through menopause and had a lot going on with her kids this season. Then low and behold Lauren Manzo — who just had the lap band surgery — walks on to the stage 35 pounds skinnier. We must say she looks great!
Everyone is talking about how great Lauren looks until Teresa chimes in and criticizes the surgery.
“That’s my problem not yours,” Lauren screams to Teresa.
The Return of Rosie
The focus shifts to Kathy and Andy says that her husband, Richie, has been mean to Tre — but she doesn’t care.
“All these people here are insignificant to me, I don’t give a sh**. But I have it outlined every single thing Richie has said about me [on TV],” Teresa says.
“Right because he wants you,” Kathy jokes in response.
Teresa fires back by revealing that Kathy and Richie almost got divorced — which Kathy denies. This sends Kathy, who rarely yells, into crazy housewife mode.
And fortunately she has her sister Rosie to back her up.
“I don’t care if I get locked up, I’ll kill her,” Rosie screams from back stage.
Bum, bum, bum! Until next Sunday….
