On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 Episode 7, the ladies enjoyed a spa day after Teresa Giudice ditched her ankle monitor.
Sentences you never thought you'd write with a straight face ...
Ankle monitor jokes aside, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 Episode 7 was significant for the end of something more significant:
Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita finally quashed their beef.
To the surprise of no one the luxurious spa weekend didn't start off smoothly, as you'll see watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online.
Tensions rose after Jacqueline failed to properly greet Teresa.
"She walks in trying to ignore me and it's like, 'Why'd you even come?'" Teresa sighed; Jacque offered to shake her hand instead of hug.
Teresa did not appreciate that alleged slight either.
Awkward conversations followed, especially when it came to finances (an understandably touchy subject for Teresa, the paroled convict).
Incredibly, though, this was discussed peacefully.
Jacqueline opened up about her own financial troubles; Melissa revealed how she too fell on hard times that regular people know all about.
Teresa talked about how people always ask her why she stayed with her husband, Joe, after everything he did and they'd been through.

"But one day, he might."
"If you believe it, he will," none other than Teresa offered when Jacqueline expressed her fears, concerns and hopes for Nicholas' future.
"I can't even understand what Jacqueline is going through," she told the cameras later. "It breaks my heart into, like, a zillion pieces."
"If you ever have a bad day, always feel free to call me," Teresa said, and most incredibly of all, it seemed like she actually meant that.
To the cameras, Jacqueline admitted that "it's nice to have her ask about me and really listen," and that perhaps this was a real breakthrough.
Teresa admitted that she wasn't there for Jacqueline and Nicholas as much as she would have liked, thanks in large part to her legal woes.
She didn't say point blank that she regretted this, but it was implied. As much as it can be considering we're talking about Teresa here.
In the end, everyone came out of this episode better than when it began, and they took a yoga class, which Giudice summed up thusly:
