We’re not sure when Teresa Giudice would have had time to have a lobotomy while filming this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she must have cleared her calender at some point.
After a devastating blowout with her former close friends Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo last week, Teresa cozied up to her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and cousin, Kathy Wakile, who she has been trashing for the better part of the last two seasons, and acted like nothing had ever happened.
In fact, Teresa attended (yet another) single release party for Melissa, and instead of ridiculing her, she acted as though she’d been her superfan since day one.
However, Jacqueline and Caroline were also at the event. Caroline was content to sit on the couch make make sourpuss menopausal faces all night. But Jax, who said she spent the past two days crying over their brawl, felt bad about the fight and tried to make nice. Their creative conversation went something like this:
Jacqueline: “Our fight hurt me.”
Teresa: “I was hurt.”
J: “I was HURT.”
Teresa: “No, I WAS HURT!”
J: “I WAS HURT, TOO!”
When the two geniuses realized there were several more words in the English language that could be used to describe their feelings, Teresa complained about being ambushed and blamed Caroline for putting ideas in Jacqueline’s head. Jacqueline was still angry at Teresa for lying and being a one-sided friend. Blah, blah, blah — same stuff as last week, except this fight ended with Jacqueline walking away, saying “F*** you!”
Jax proceeded to do shots with another friend while Teresa talked to Melissa about her involvement with Danielle Staub two years prior. Except instead of ripping Melissa an ass as big a Joe Giudice, she spoke calmly, forgave Melissa (!!) and previously-feuding sisters-in-law ran off into a field of flowers holding hands while unicorns danced nearby. I guess when nobody likes you anymore, you can’t afford to be that choosy about your family.
Only time will tell if these new/old family bonds will hold up.
We hate it when people all gang up on one person. But at some point, you have to think that the person who’s constantly involved in fights with people is the one with the problem. What do you think? Is Teresa the victim, or the problem?
