Last night’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 Episode 12 picked up in the aftermath of Jacqueline’s blowout with Robyn.
What followed on the heels of that encounter?
Dolores Catania told Melissa Gorga to ask Robyn to leave, concerned that people like Robyn could get Teresa Giudice into trouble.
You know. The threat of prole violations and the like.
Melissa thought Jacqueline’s “obsession” with Teresa was “weird” and wasn’t totally on board with requesting that Robyn go home.
Robyn overheard this, however, and offered to leave.
Teresa, for her part, felt that this whole drama was “not cool,” but just the same, Melissa called a car to get Robyn and her friend out of there.
Even after Robyn left, tensions remained, though.
Dinner lasted about 45 seconds before Teresa and Jacqueline went at it, with the former calling the latter “manipulative” and “calculated.”
That’s when Jacqueline’s husband, Chris, told Tre to “learn to trust” Jacqueline … who called Teresa a “f–king crazy table-flipping bitch!”
Well, yeah, if you want to get technical.
Not to be underestimated, Jacqueline turned her attention to Melissa, demanding that she admit some guy thought she was a stripper.
Melissa said she couldn’t remember.
“You are so full of f–king s–t right now,” Jacqueline said, absolutely going off on her latest adversary. “You are a fake, phony bitch!”
“Everyone knows it!”
She added that Melissa had four nose jobs (further evidence of phoniness), until Teresa jumped in and said she hadn’t warned Melissa.
Her reasoning was simple enough, that she didn’t know what was going to go down, while Jacqueline did … implying some blame there.
“You are such a twisted bitch!” Laurita screamed at her. “You did it. You did everything because you hated her! You’re a f–king criminal!”
Let this serve as a reminder that when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you best grab a hat and hold the f–k onto it.
Also, another reminder: Don’t call Tre a criminal.
Seriously, it may be accurate, but just don’t do it.
Jacqueline then stormed out, in any case.
Chris, left to pick up the pieces, summed up the situation fairly simply, saying: “I don’t think Melissa or Teresa give a shit about Jacqueline.”
“Her response was not hate. It was hurt.”
Deep. Possibly overly simplied, but deep.
Later, on the drive to where they were staying, Siggy said she expected Teresa to take her side over Robyn’s, given their long history.
Not so fast, Teresa interjected.
Giudice said that people should have seen Jacqueline’s behavior coming, for so many reasons, and threw shade at her for her surgery.
Pot? Meet kettle? Anyone?
Reflecting later on the whole situation, Jacqueline announced, “They are pretty disgusting people and they don’t deserve me in their life.”
Siggy took this particularly hard, noting that these women just didn’t belong together, and deciding she would up and leave the trip early.
Probably for the best.
