This week The Real Housewives of New Jersey continued to wreak havoc in Italy.
Joe was a crabby, cursing jerk; the girls were whiny; and Teresa was ... Teresa. Basically, the whole Giudice family was a mess.
Caroline Manzo was more than annoyed and wished for a volcano to explode and take her away from it all.
After disembarking the cruise ship, the crew headed to Naples for a night before a reunion with Joe and Teresa's families in Sala Consolina.
After Joe ranted and cursed all the way about how much everything cost and anything else he could think of, he issued a decree: "We've got to go eat, and we've got to be civilized."
Caroline couldn't contain her laughter.
"Wrong choice of words," she said through tears of laughter.
The whole crew minus "the old people" made the trek up a huge hill to the homes of Joe and Teresa's relatives.
It was all very sweet to see where Joe was born, where his parents were married and all the relatives meeting the little Giudice girls. Although the matching outfits Teresa decked them out in for the final dinner were some of the craziest I've ever seen, complete with headdresses.
Meanwhile back home, Danielle Staub felt liberated upon learning her enemies were out of the country. She even ventured out to their turf for her favorite panini -- something she said she'd be terrified to do if they were on U.S. soil.
"Coming here meant having like a sinking feeling in my gut that out of nowhere they would come," she said. "I couldn't let my kids walk around here safely anymore. Gee, I hope there's no Titanic weather on that cruise."
Danny, Staub's ex-con bodyguard, said he is keeping tabs on Ashley who has "terroristic tendencies".
Staub also started the search for her birth mother, who gave her up for adoption at age 15. She employed the help of a private investigator who didn't turn up much, but she remained hopeful.
In the end, it was wheels down in New Jersey, and Italy let out a sigh of relief.
Previews for the season finale next week look intense as Caroline faces off against Danielle.
"I will never start a fight, but I'll never back down from one either," Caroline says.
