Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12, Teresa Giudice and her ongoing legal problems were only half the story.
With the real housewife in real trouble, getting sentenced to 15 months for fraud, it was hard to focus on much else, but the Bravo show tried.
Fortunately, they had a good side plot, as the rumor that Victoria Gotti told earlier in the season came full circle when Jim Marchese said it out loud:
Teresa Aprea's husband, Rino, had slept with her mom in the recent past.
"You don't talk about mothers!" said Melissa Gorga, as twins Nicole Napolitano and Aprea listened, stunned, to the story about their own. "No! No!"
"Don't you dare talk about my mother," said a crying Aprea. "I'm done."
Sounds like Rino did a lot more than talk to her, too. Just saying.
"That's why I was trying to shut this down all night long," said fellow cast member Dina Manzo on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12.
