'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Recap: Jacqueline Laurita Gets Big-Time Diss From Teresa Giudice

jacqueline laurita

Whoa, lots of things happening on Sunday night's episode of RHONJ. To begin with, Amber Marchese, thankfully, found out that everything was okay with her bloodwork and her health is good, so that was a big relief. But then we had two more plotlines, if you will: Dina Manzo (almost) spilling the beans about hearing that Teresa Aprea's husband, Rino, cheated on her with her mother; and the return of Jacqueline Laurita.

Sh*t's about to get real, people.


Let's start off with Jacqueline. Many of us knew that the original RHONJ cast member was going to be returning to the show since it was all over the Internet, but I, personally, was under the impression that it wasn't going to happen until Teresa and Joe's trial (which Bravo will be filming) in a couple of weeks. In Sunday's ep, though, we got a little sneak peak of Jacqueline and found out that she reached out to Teresa after she was indicted. Jacqueline read Kathy Wakile a long, heartfelt text message that she sent Teresa ... as well as the super curt response Tre sent back. It sort of sounded like Jacqueline was willing to put all of their differences behind them in order to be there for Teresa when she was down, but Teresa wanted no part of it. Or, as Kathy said, maybe she just wasn't ready.

It isn't exactly a surprise that Teresa responded to Jacqueline's text the way she did, being that she's never been one to easily forgive, and, clearly, she hates seeming vulnerable, but it's kind of sad. She and Jacqueline were good friends at one point, and it probably wouldn't be the worst thing in the world right now for Teresa to have an extra friend or two to vent to. But, whatevs. Classic Teresa.

Then there was Dina and Teresa Aprea. Whilst in Florida for a little sun and fun, Dina, for whatever reason, felt that she ought to tell Teresa that Amber and Teresa Giudice heard that her husband hooked up with her mother. But before she could get anything out, Teresa asked Dina if what she was about to say had anything to do with her family. When Dina said, "Yes," Teresa immediately said that she didn't want to know ... which obviously leads many of us to believe that she knew exactly where Dina was going, and Rino did in fact cheat on her with her mom. Gross!

It looks like we're going to learn a lot more next week when things seem to come to a head, but what I want to know is: Why was Dina, more or less, placing a good portion of the blame on Amber when Amber never opened her mouth to her? Yes, she (weirdly) talked about it to Teresa Giudice last week, but Teresa Giudice was the one who said something to Dina. Why isn't she the one getting blamed?

Like I said, it seems like we'll find out a lot next week, but man, talk about drama. I feel bad for all the ladies who are going to get caught in the crossfire, but it's about time. I was starting to get seriously bored with this season. Bring on the drams!

What did you think of tonight's episode? Do you think Rino hooked up with Teresa's mom?
