Would Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano carry on the tradition on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 14, the final installment of 2014?
By that, we mean exploding in epic fashion on a Real Housewives finale, as Teresa Giudice and her table-flipping ways so famously did in Season 1?
The stage was set at Dina Manzo’s Project Ladybug charity fashion show, with THE RUMOR on everyone’s mind and the twins making sure Victoria is not invited.
Teresa Aprea feels that "I deserve an apology" from her namesake.
She says of Giudice, "Teresa, you just s–t all over my family. I would never do that to you. That’s why yours is getting destroyed now. Karma’s a bitch."
Teresa Giudice is headed to prison for 15 months for fraud, which you surely know whether you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online or not.
Amber Marchese is a bit calmer, but after Jim Marchese caused such a fiasco in Boca Raton, she decides to go to the gala solo to avoid an encore.
Smart thinking for her, but where’s the fun in that for us!?
Giudice wonders why the twins haven’t reached out prior to the party, and muses that it’s because they love the drama, the cameras and the attention.
Indeed. "I think we need to talk," Teresa Aprea says to her Melissa and Nicole look on, telling her she should feel "ashamed" for repeating that rumor.
Oooh, here we go! It is gonna be on now … maybe.
Teresa G. seems bent on keeping her cool.
Aprea baits Giudice, but the latter doesn’t take it, and notes that Rino Aprea technically started the rumor since he told Victoria Gotti in the first place.
Her co-stars bristle at that excuse.
Teresa still stays measured, perhaps having been humbled by the past year, and eventually tells them, "I like you girls a lot… I wasn’t trying to hurt you."
They proceed to hug it out. Wow.
Of course, the happy ending is foiled somewhat as we flash forward to October 2, when Joe and Teresa Giudice are sentenced to hard time in federal prison.
"I feel like it’s not real," said Jacqueline Laurita, who, along with husband Chris, learns the news with Teresa’s cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.
Nicole is unmoved, though.
"You don’t mess with the legal system," she says as The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 14 ends, "Choices you make in life, there are consequences."
Even for reality stars.
