Plus find out which one of the housewives (or husbands!) was actually a stripper, Kim D.’s take on the Posche Fashion Show, where Teresa’s relationship with her brother stands today and more!
The third — and final — part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 4 reunion unraveled in a rather tearful, truthful and emotional way. From screaming to crying, the final installment was a dramatic ending — to say the least.
The Truth About Joe Giudice’s Financial Troubles
The third part of the reunion kicked off by discussing Joe Giudice’s financial woes. Teresa Giudice made it known that she was mad because her family discussed his incarceration on TV when she asked them not too. But host/moderator Andy Cohen interrupted and asked Teresa why it was such a big deal that they discussed it on TV when she was talking about it in magazine interviews all throughout the season. Good point, Andy!
Not to our dismay, Teresa’s response lacked a sensible answer. Then Joe and Teresa went on to say that while Joe is facing 10 years in jail, they’ll “cross that bridge” when the time comes because they aren’t worried. After commercial break, the rest of the husbands join their wives for what must have been the most dramatic reunion in all of Bravo history.
Joe Gorga Faces Teresa For The First Time In A Year
Joe Gorga hasn’t seen his sister since the dramatic Posche fashion show throwdown that happened nearly a year ago. But after a video montage of Joe Gorga showing his penis on TV, Joe goes head-to-head with his brother-in-law.
“It makes me sick that I even have to be here to look at ya,” Joe Giudice says to Joe Gorga.
The two start fighting and Joe Gorga reveals their fight began years ago over tools. Andy asks Joe Gorga if his relationship with his sister has always been full of tension – and his reply is no, but they’ve been fighting for a while now.
“We had our issues way before this show,” Joe Gorga says.
Andy starts to ask if everyone can just get a long because Joe Giudice could end up behind bars, and everyone starts yelling after Teresa says Melissa Gorga got in the way of their relationship. But then the fight spotlight turns to Joe and Joe again when Joe Giudice asks Joe Gorga how he met his wife.
“Shut the f***k up about my wife. I laugh about you every day. You bum. Why don’t you pay your bills?” Joe Gorga yells to Joe Giudice.
Once the boys cool down, Joe Gorga reveals a shocking truth amid the season’s stripper claims. Joe was actually the one who took off his clothes back in the day — he was a dancer at Chippendales!
“I had a G-string as an outfit,” he says.
The Moment of Truth
Once again we are brought to the fight that ended it all: the Posche Fashion show. Teresa says for the millionth time that she didn’t call Melissa a stripper, but then she gets into a fight with Jacqueline Laurita and stands up and screams at her. Fortunately, there wasn’t a table in sight.
Not too long after Kim D. enters to tell the truth about that dramatic night.
“She [Teresa] did not know this man [Angelo] was going to mention anything about Melissa’s past,” Kim D. says.
Kim reveals that Angelo was at the salon and once she found out the news that he knew Melissa, she called Teresa to get her in on the scheme – without Teresa knowing exactly what was going on.
“Now we can all agree it was a setup,” Melissa says.
But Caroline Manzo intervenes and reveals that Kim said that Teresa knew something was going to happen.
“Did she know something was going to go down, yes, but did she know exactly, no,” Kim says, adding that she knew the target was Melissa though.
“She did not know what it was about,” Kim says.
Then Andy asks Joe Gorga if he sees a future with his sister.
“I don’t know. It’s tough,” Joe says. “I didn’t just lost my sister; I lost my parents.”
“Just be happy,” Teresa says as she cries and speaks to her brother. “Just be happy.”
Chris chimes in and says that he knows Joe Gorga wants his sister back and this is all a bunch of “bull s**t.”
The reunion concluded with Caroline Manzo giving her finals words of wisdom.
“I know one day we’ll be sitting around, all of us, all of us, and we’ll say remember when. You can’t have this much pain without love,” Caroline says.
Hmm! It was definitely a dramatic ending to a dramatic season.
