So awkward. On the Oct. 23 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ Melissa and Jacqueline came face-to-face for the first time since their huge fight in Vermont. Plus, Jacqueline and Dolores found themselves at odds over a phone call, so it was all kinds of drama!
We hate to say this, but it looks like Jacqueline may end this season without any friends. Not only did she and Melissa ignore each other at Dolores‘ housewarming party on the Oct. 23 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she also picked a fight with Dolores over a silly phone call.
In case you didn’t know, Jacqueline, Teresa and Melissa were all invited to Dolores’ housewarming party, and it was supposed to be the first they all came together since their huge fight in Vermont. However, Teresa bailed on the party last minute because she wanted to stay at home with her daughters and wait for Joe to call from jail. She and the girls were still recovering from their first week without Joe, so it was totally understandable. But that left Melissa having to deal with Jacqueline all by herself. Fortunately, though, Jacqueline and Melissa stayed far away from each other. In fact, Jacqueline wore a shirt that said “Nama’stay Away From Me.” And Melissa didn’t want to be fake and kiss hello, when there’s still so much animosity between her and Jacqueline. Joe Gorga, however, did say hello to Jacqueline, but she wasn’t very receptive. He kissed her on the cheek and she winced.
Later, Chris Laurita pulled Joe Gorga aside and said he didn’t like what went down in Vermont. He said Jacqueline was just defending herself, but Joe didn’t agree. He said she was way out of line, but he also didn’t put all the blame on Jacqueline. Joe said both Melissa and Jacqueline were in the wrong, and he’d like to see them work things out. So he asked Chris to urge Jacqueline to meet up with Melissa, but Jacqueline said “no freaking way.” She even wrote it down in a notebook and flashed it for the camera to see, so it looks like it may be a while before Jacqueline and Melissa work things out.
Fortunately, Jacqueline still has Dolores and Siggy in her corner… well, that was until Jacqueline got upset with Dolores over a phone call. Jacqueline was supposed to help Dolores run “ladies’ night” at her gym, but she cancelled because she was sick — or so she said. Later, Dolores revealed to Siggy that Jacqueline was mainly upset because she wasn’t on the flyer, yet Teresa, who ran a yoga class, was. Furthermore, Jacqueline felt Dolores tried to make her look bad for cancelling on attending. It was much ado about nothing, but Dolores got so upset with Jacqueline that she said, “F*** you,” to her.
So does this mean Jacqueline just lost another friend? We’ll have to wait for next week’s season finale to find out!
