Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice got into a major argument on The Real Housewives of New Jersey this week.
Actually, correction: Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice pretended to into a major argument on The Real Housewives of New Jersey this week.
In the following sneak peek, Joe is sad, angry and drunk over the fact that he'll soon be heading to prison.
So when Teresa brings up a question about the family's finances, Joe finally snaps.
At one point, he actually screams that he's gonna "smack" Teresa's "f-cking head" up against the wall, to which Teresa calmly replies:
"You need to keep your mouth shut."
But this tactic didn't exactly work, as Joe continued his tirade by telling her to "shut the f—k up."'
"I think you need to leave," Teresa replied.
Gladly, Joe shot back, saying that he "can't wait to leave [for prison]," and that the only thing he'll miss are his children.
Sounds harsh, right? Sounds really inappropriate?
Don't worry. It didn't really happen.
It doesn't take a genius to analyze the clip below and see that the camera is never actually on Teresa or Joe when their explosive words are uttered.
Go ahead and re-watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online if you don't believe us.
But the words at the center of so-called argument were very clearly edited in after the fact. Teresa and Joe are just reading from a script while they're voicing over the scene.
This is common practice across reality television, of course.
We're not breaking any huge piece of news here.
But it's still pretty hilarious to see this sort of editing in action.
Hey, let's get another close-up of that pink dog while the couple argues!
We love it/hate it.
