On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies seemed like they were going to move on from the drama and get along.
Dolores Catania and Teresa Giudice met to talk about their issues. Dolores said she thought Danielle Staub was “on medication for being crazy,” adding that she was “pathological.” Teresa told Dolores she didn’t feel like Dolores had her back, but Dolores said she felt the same way about her. The conversation then turned to Dolores’ relationship with Frank.
Dolores reiterated that she left Frank when he cheated on her and she couldn’t stay with a man like Teresa did. “You stuck it out,” she told Teresa. Teresa then asked, point-blank, if Dolores was implying that her husband, Joe Giudice, cheated on her. Dolores explained that’s not what she meant. “We’re too good of friends for this to go on as long as it’s been going on,” Dolores added. Teresa agreed and they seemingly buried the hatchet.
Siggy Flicker wanted to do a practice run for her upcoming expansion into retreats, so she decided to host a weekend getaway just for her friends. As she discussed it with Dolores, Dolores agreed that she would give Danielle a second shot and offer an olive branch.
At the beginning of the retreat Siggy directly addressed Margaret Josephs. Siggy admitted the reason she got so upset about being called “Soggy Flicker” was because as a child she was bullied about her name. Margaret then understood the context of Siggy’s reaction and actually said if she had known that, she never would have made the comment. Siggy then shared that Margaret would be rooming with her.
Later, Teresa caught up with Danielle and told her that if she had to pick between Danielle and Dolores, she would pick Dolores. To the camera, Teresa said she knew Danielle had been a “sh*t stirrer” in the past, but since she’d come back into the circle, she had really had Teresa’s back.
Danielle, Siggy, Teresa, Margaret, Dolores and and Siggy’s business partner all met for dinner after the first day of the seminar had ended. Danielle wasted no time before confronting Dolores to ask if she had said that she thought Danielle was on some type of meds. “Are you?” Dolores asked. “No,” Danielle replied, looking shocked by the accusation.
Melissa Gorga said she thought that accusing Danielle of having a drug problem was “below the belt.” “She has every trait of being a pathological liar and quite frankly, somebody who, the elevator doesn’t reach the top. She’s crazy,” Dolores confessed to the camera. Dolores decided instead of be crazy, maybe Danielle was just delusional. Danielle said that was “rude.”
Siggy started the next day with an activity designed for people who still had issues to confront each other. First up were Siggy and Margaret. Margaret kicked off their “make up” session by doing a an impression of Siggy during the cakegate. After Margaret mocked Siggy the ladies knew this was not going to end well.
