Uh oh. A few unexpected guests (Kathy and Rosie) showed up to Teresa’s book signing on the Sept. 11 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ and the reception they had hoped for just wasn’t there. Teresa basically said she doesn’t have time for them. Ouch!
We feel so bad for Kathy and Rosie. They’ve been trying so hard to get back on good terms with their cousin, Teresa, but she’s just not interested. On the Sept. 11 episode of RHONJ, Teresa said Kathy and Rosie stabbed her in the back by talking badly about her before she went off to prison. Even so, Kathy and Rosie tried their best to make amends with Teresa by showing up to her book signing and inviting her to lunch. Unfortunately, Teresa said her time is precious right now and she wants to spend as much time as possible with her husband, Joe, before he heads to prison. Rosie begged for her to come to lunch with them anyway, asking for just an hour of her time, but she still turned them down.
Then, when Rosie approached Joe and tried apologizing for the hateful things she said about him and Teresa on New Year’s Eve, he brushed her off. He said it was no big deal, but when he later told Teresa about it, he said Rosie came up to him and said something “stupid.”
It’s all very unfortunate, because no one is guaranteed a tomorrow. And Kathy knows this all too well, as she revealed her daughter recently had to have another tumor removed. So Kathy desperately wants to make up with Teresa. If you think about it, their arguments are so insignificant compared to real life problems like cancer and what not. We seriously hope Teresa can find it in her heart to forgive her cousins because there’s no reason to keep fighting.
Meanwhile, Melissa and Joe Gorga had an argument about what her role should be. He still believes she should be at home with the kids, but she wants to make something of herself and continue with her business venture. And when Joe said he built the house they live in and “put her” there, she got pretty upset. Basically, she said he made her sound like a hooker he rescued from 42nd street.
When Melissa confided in Siggy about her fight with Joe, Siggy gave her some advice on how to get her marriage back on track, and that started with a family dinner — one in which Melissa’s extended family attended. Joe seemed really happy and thanked Melissa for making him a home cooked meal.
In other Jersey news, Dolores‘ business partner whipped her into shape when she finally got back to work. To his delight, she actually came up with a great idea to attract more members to their gym — free weekends for ladies!
