The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 16 served as the first part of this fall’s reunion special. And what a special event this turned out to be.
So what stood out the most from The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 16, and stood apart from crazy Bravo cast reunions past?
Well, the volatile Teresa Giudice literally stormed off the set when talk turned to her fraud indictment and impending imprisonment, so there was that.
"I need a break. You all can have the conversation without me," the star said, standing up, peacing out and asking a producer, "Where’s the bathroom?"
"I don’t want to be out there with that conversation," Teresa Giudice continued. "To me, family doesn’t act like that. What my aunt said, very inappropriate."
Giudice was upset when her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri joined the show and a clip was shown in which their mother (Teresa’s aunt) spoke.
She stated that if people do something wrong, it will eventually catch up with them. "This has hurt my heart," Pierri said, adding. "They’re my family."
"Are we still talkin’ about this," Giudice said upon returning to the episode (watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to see it). "If so, I’ll leave again."
Fortunately for Teresa Giudice, the feud between Dina and Caroline Manzo as well as brother Chris and Jacqueline Laurita also got a lot of attention.
"I’m not going to lie … I would never do a show with family again," said Manzo, who amended that to say she might do a cooking show with her sister.
She later became emotional and hinted that she would consider reconciling with the Manzo’d with Children star. But Jacqueline, on the other hand …
"There are certain people, I cannot have exchanges with. It’s healthier from a distance. I don’t want a relationship with Jacqueline … I don’t need the chaos."
When host Andy Cohen asked Manzo about her relationship with her nephew Nicholas, who struggles with autism, she said, "I don’t know Nicholas at all."
Cohen asked Amber Marchese, as many of the wives implied throughout the season, if she felt that she was playing the cancer card to earn sympathy.
"I hope to God you never get it," Marchese said. "I never used it as a sympathy card.. I wanted to use this show as a platform and, hopefully, save a life."
