Everyone’s back from from Florida, but the drama didn’t stay on vacation. The fallout from Jim’s diss toward the twins has flown back to Jersey and all of the ‘RHONJ’ ladies, including Teresa Giudice, got in on the action.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey began to prep for Dina Manzo‘s charity event, Project Ladybug, on the Oct. 12 episode, and if you know anything about the Housewives, you know that fancy galas are where it all goes down. The best part? Teresa Giudice is at the center of all of it.
‘RHONJ’: Jim’s ‘Mother-F***er’ Diss Heads To Jersey
“The whole word ‘mother-f***er’ has a whole new meaning.” That’s what Rosie said, in response to last week’s episode’s drama.
The fallout from Jim’s “disgusting rumor” about Teresa Aprea‘s mom hooking up with her husband Rino has now involved all of the housewives.
Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita talk about it with Rosie, and they all agree it’s way below the belt to bring in anyone’s mom.
Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga and Amber Marchese are all gabbing about the Florida drama, too, as they enjoy a spa day. Well, until Melissa gets on the phone with the twins and things get awkward because Teresa and Nicole aren’t happy with the other Teresa, since she was supposedly the one who began to spread the nasty rumor that Rino hooked up with his mother-in-law.
“They’re hot-headed Italians,” Teresa Giudice says. “I used to be a hot-headed Italian, but you live and learn.”
Amber Sticks By Jim’s Side After His Major Diss
While everyone else is talking smack about Jim, Amber sticks by her husband’s side.
In honor of the fifth anniversary of when Amber was diagnosed with cancer, Amber and Jim take an intimate photo shoot together. Jim surprises his wife with the framed photos — some of which feature a topless Amber, showing off her scars — in a gallery for a super romantic dinner date.
“My husband is a gentle lion,” Amber said. “I wish the other girls could see this side of Jim.”
The two talk about the ladies, and it’s safe to assume that Jim is not going to make nice with them anytime soon. “They know nothing about family, faith or love. They really don’t.”
Referring to the bombshell he dropped in Florida, starting a major fight, Jim says, “I really don’t have any regrets because I probably did the right thing.”
Teresa Aprea Doesn’t Invite Teresa Giudice To Her Tasting Event
We got a glimpse of Teresa Aprea being pissed at Teresa Giudice when the ladies were at the spa, and turns out, the latter Teresa wasn’t invited to the former Teresa’s tasting event.
“We deserve the guest list, Teresa Aprea says. “No drama, no rumors.”
Dina and Melissa chat with twin Teresa to see what they can do to help her get over her anger for Teresa Giudice. “Did she let me down? Yes…I think she owes me a sincere apology…I’m all about forgiveness.”
Melissa Gorga & Dina Manzo Beg Teresa Giudice To Apologize
“Project Ladybug is the most important thing to me,” Dina says. “And anyone that’s nasty or negative, stay the f*** home.”
In an effort to avoid the nasty and the negative, Dina urges Teresa Giudice to simply apologize to the other Teresa so that things don’t get awkward at the charity event. Well, that doesn’t go over too well.
“I know in my heart I didn’t do anything wrong” Teresa says. “I have nothing to do with this at all. I will not be provoked…Dina definitely should have came to my defense more. This rumor, all it’s doing is causing drama.”
Melissa joins Dina in telling Teresa that all she has to do is say she’s sorry for being involved with talking about the hookup rumor, but Teresa won’t listen to sister-in-law.
“I have enough sh*t going on,” she says. “I can’t believe it. To even ask me that, especially with what I’m going through. Just leave me alone…I’m not bowing down to anyone.”
(Except the judge.)
