On this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the women dealt with the aftermath of their trip to Vermont.
Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania went to check on Jacqueline Laurita to see how she was holding up after the drama. Siggy was worried that Jac was mad at her for not taking sides in the fight. Jacqueline reassured Siggy that she wasn’t upset at all, but that she was focused on Teresa and Melissa.
“I thought it was dirty that Melissa tried to rewrite history,” Jacqueline said. “Are you afraid of what Teresa would say if you answer that honestly?” she asked, regarding Melissa’s intentions. Jac also noted it was just “sad” the way things happened and said she was “done” with Teresa and Melissa. Siggy pledged her loyalty to Jacqueline by telling her she wouldn’t go to Melissa’s fashion show.
Siggy caught up with Melissa to tell her that she wouldn’t be attending the fashion show for Melissa’s boutique. “Thank God Vermont is over,” Siggy said. Then, she admitted to Melissa that her first impressions of Gorga were not that great. She told Melissa she found her to be “phony” and “self-absorbed.” Siggy kept the conversation pleasant, until she told Melissa that she couldn’t go to the Envy fashion show because she thought it would hurt Jacqueline. In the end, Melissa understood that Siggy was picking Jacqueline’s side, but the two walked away from lunch in peace.
Kim D returned to stir up some drama. Jacqueline told Kim that Teresa tried to imply she was the one behind strippergate and then said that she was not inviting either Melissa or Teresa to her Little Kernel event later that week. Kim started in by saying that if she were Teresa, she would divorce Joe before he went to prison because he would be entitled to half of everything she earned while he was away. Then she asked, “Do you think she is delusional or do you think that she just doesn’t know?” When the other women were shocked Kim D brought up Joe’s alleged infidelity, Jacqueline said, “Whatever their relationship is, it works for them.”
Meanwhile, Siggy had been having a change of heart over Melissa’s fashion show. When Teresa, Melissa and Dolores went out for sushi, Siggy revealed that she was going to attend Melissa’s fashion show. During this dinner, Teresa called Jacqueline a “wacko” and “crazy person,” but Siggy let it slide.
Everyone, besides Teresa and Melissa, gathered to celebrate the launch of Chris and Jacqueline’s Little Kernel popcorn. Chris gave a speech that made Jac very emotional. “Nicholas is making progress and I can see the sparkle in Chris’ eye,” she said. Then Chris turned his attention to Jac’s daughter Ashlee. “I would also like to congratulate Ashlee and Pete on their engagement,” he began. “But we got some more news. We just recently found out they are sprouting a little kernel of their own. Yes, Jacqueline is going to be a glam-ma.”
Before leaving, Dolores pulled Chris aside and urged him to stand by his wife and not go to Joe Giudice’s party in a few days because Jacqueline was no longer invited after the fight.
Later, Teresa and Dolores met up at a church and started talking about how life doesn’t ever end up the way you think it’s going to. “I have come to accept it now,” Teresa said of her husband’s impending jail sentence. “I guess I am kind of old-school.” Teresa reiterated that she would not get divorced. “I love Joe and he loves me and we’re going to just stand by each other.”
