The group was already divided after the intense first part of the ‘RHONJ’s reunion special, but the ladies served up even more drama during Part 2 on Nov. 13. Joe Gorga and Chris Laurita joined to discuss Teresa’s serious accusation, and Melissa finally told the truth about her nose. Read our recap below!
One week after Teresa accused Jacqueline of calling the feds on her, she then backtracked a bit on the Nov. 13 episode of RHONJ, saying Jacqueline’s “not responsible,” but she definitely feels Jacqueline “was dabbling in it. She was speaking to people who then went to the feds. I know what really happened.” But maybe Teresa doesn’t.
When it was Chris Laurita’s turn to speak, he shared what he believes to be the “truth of what really happened.” Teresa begged him not to speak about her personal matters, but Andy Cohen insisted she let him speak, considering the dangerous accusation she had just made.
“The reality is, we have a mutual friend. And he called me up one day and said, ‘Apparently, there’s a real estate dispute. This guy is going to go to the feds. Why don’t we try and get them together so they can make a deal and they’ll be no problems.’ I said, ‘Alright.’ I didn’t call Joe [Giudice] myself — I called another mutual friend that we have. A couple days later, he called me back and he said, ‘I talked to Joe. He said to tell him to go f*** himself.’ I said, ‘OK.’ I called my friend, here’s the message, I said, ‘I want nothing to do with this.’ And that is exactly what happened,” Chris said in regards to who called the feds on Joe and Teresa.
Regardless, Teresa still believes Jacqueline was involved in one way or another.
“At what point do you take responsibility for what you did?” Chris shot back at Teresa, before Jacqueline noted that Melissa once told her that Teresa and Joe were debating getting a divorce. And that’s when Melissa told Siggy and Dolores to “run for the f***ing hills” because according to her, Jacqueline is the “worst girlfriend” ever. “She sucks [and she’ll share all your secrets]!”
When Andy asked Chris to chime in again, he explained how he and Jacqueline had a lot of fun with Teresa and Joe over the years, but once they befriended Melissa and Joe Gorga, that all went to s***. When they first met Melissa and Joe, Jacqueline asked her husband, “Why can’t we put them together [with Teresa and Joe again]? And Chris told her, “You are going to get f***ed. They’re family, and one day they’re going to come back together, and you’re going to become the bad guy. Well, here we are.” Whoa — is Chris a psychic?
Then it came time to discuss Melissa’s “four nose jobs,” and while she did admit to getting plastic surgery, she said she didn’t have four procedures. Even so, the only reason she kept it a secret was because she wanted to tell her daughter when the time was right — she didn’t want Antonia finding out by watching the reveal on television.
Despite all the drama, the ladies still participated in a big group hug at the end of the hour, all thanks to Siggy’s special request.
