'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Reunion Part 2 Recap: Joe Giudice's Cheating Defense & 5 Other Unbelievable Moments

Teresa and Joe GiudiceIt was more of the Teresa Giudice crazy show tonight on part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. For an extra added dose of insanity, Joe Giudice came out and joined the ladies on the couches, and it was one big delusional drama fest.

There was so much yelling and so much crap being thrown about, it's hard to even know where to start. So let's try to break it down into the most unbelievable moments -- and by unbelievable I mean both those that made us question if they could even possibly be happening and those in which the person talking was just clearly full of crap.

Big surprise -- they're all brought to us by the Giudices. God bless.

1. Teresa claiming Melissa Gorga's song "On Display" was written about her.

Did she really say that out loud? Why yes, she did. Like I said, unbelievable.

2. Teresa couldn't come up with a single example of Caroline Manzo bullying her.

"All season" and "a lot of things" were the best she could do. Really? Andy Cohen gives her the floor to take Caroline to task for all of her wrongs, and she can't think of a single one? Huh ... Napalm flashback.

3. Teresa acting like a crazy person.

I know she was trying to make a point, but falling to her knees in her gaudy green gown and waving her hands about yelling, "Thank you, God! Thank you, God!" about Jacqueline and Caroline being out of her life made her look ready for a straitjacket. Straight up.

4. Teresa singing "On Display".

Please, not ever again. The fact that she demanded Melissa sing the whole song after she sang a few lines (and sang them very well) to prove she doesn't lip sync just showed how relentless Teresa is. Her singing Melissa's song just proved that she must not be able to hear herself.

5. Joe Giudice's explanation as to who he was talking to on the phone while they were in Napa.

Juicy Joe said (while looking at the floor and making no eye contact) that he was taking care of business with his friend Albie. When Andy questioned why he needed to switch to another language, he said it was because the Spanish pizza guy needed help. Uh huh. He was less believable than my toddler who tells me she didn't eat the candy as chocolate drips from her mouth. And a hell of a lot less cute too.

6. Joe Giudice. Period.

From his ridiculous getup to his glassy beady eyes and completely belligerent attitude about being there, the guy was more repellent than ever. The big belch he let out toward the end just perfectly punctuated his patheticness, and his smug mug throughout the whole encounter made Jacqueline's assertions that Joe has cheated with everyone from his secretary to their babysitter seem all the more believable.

Perhaps what's most unbelievable though is that there's yet more drama to discuss. Part three is up next week ... if you can handle anymore?

Did you believe Joe Giudice's explanation? What did you find most unbelievable on tonight's reunion?

Julie Ryan Evans you forgot one. The reaction to Kathy's comment about the moan Joe Giudice gave at the beginning of that phone call and Teresa saying "You had to mention that" and then made a sound like an animal not wanting to share it kill.. But all of it was right. And Berkley Collage should hide their faces in shame for producing such a unintelligent student like Teresa. Teresa should listen to Wendy Williams and get out of Reality TV.

Berkley should be ashamed of Teresa ..Teresa should be ashamed of herself...

but still, if you're calling someone stupid, you should try and spell college right, hmm?

You nailed it all. I could not have said it better. Teresa is so far out there but so are all of them. I truly believe that the only sane one there is Melissa. She shows nothing but class. You can see her thought process before she does strike back. It really is bizarre how I find myself glued to the tv over this insanity. As far as Teresa goes. I think this lady comes unraveled every time she is with these women. She did make her bed but I believe it has all snowballed. I don't understand why they all have such a hard time apologizing to each other. It seems that is all they really want

With Teresa it's like I almost start to feel bad for her (no, not really) and how clueless she is, and what a terrible, awful, horrible marriage she has and how she has one by one destroyed her relationships with everyone on the show who was ever there for her. It's like she can't stand to see anyone with anything that she would want for herself, she is so miserable that she HAS to make sure nobody around her has an ounce of success, happiness, love, etc. just so she can level the playing field for herself. Melissa and Joe moving away is probably the smartest thing they'll ever do ( Although if they wait long enough Joe and Teresa might HAVE to sell first), even though I know it must be heartbreaking for them. The damage Teresa has done and will continue to do will last for generations, and hopefully soon something will knock some sense into her although I don't know if she's even capable of clear thinking or reasoning, she can't even comprehend a simple question. This article is exactly how I felt too!

Just wanted to clarify one thing. She did not attend Berkeley as in The University of California at Berkeley, one of the best universities in the United States. She went to Berkeley College in NYC which boasts a ..77% acceptance rate.

would l;ove to know the answer, when joe said to wacko  jacko,you don\t want to go there jackie,  what os she  hiding, could it be the chis cheating or the 44 million fraud and credit card. jacko are chris are going to be charged with and is  worse than what teresa and  joe ever had

Teresa has GOT to get off there! She's going to go crazy as more and more people challenge her. And then the whole husband cheating on her thing... She's got to get refocused on family and reality! I LOVED her first season. Can't stand her now. I actually worry about Bravo being held responsible for however this culminates...which will NOT be pretty. It's going too far.
And then the other part of me enjoys the drama and I'm ashamed of that. :)

The six words the Teresa lives by are: Deny it, Deny it, Deny it !!!! Every word that was spoken against her....she said was a lie. Every situation that others said happened, she said it didn't. Her antics, her screaming, her, changing seats, her praising the coffee table goggess.....was all theatrical !!!!!! maybe she will leave the show and get a spin off (like Nene) cause she is a good actress !!!! GREAT liar but only a good actress. She is THE MOST self-absorbed, cuel, mean, back-stabbing BITCH and I feel bad for anyone that has to come in contact with her.  Her husband is below the mark of a human. SCUM !!!! So, with that being said, they sure do seem absolutly perfect for weach other !!!! We know that Teresa wears the pants in that family.....Joe calls her nasty names and gets caught cheating so she gets $$$$$$ worth of jewelry. He had to bring it abck till she was happy with the amount he bought her. His words..: "Usually I just buy her something and she takes it back and gets what she wants". Well isn't THAT special..?! For teresa...it's all about what SHE CAN GET OUT OF every situation in her life. Good, bad or otherwise. Pretty soon her daughter Gia is giong to tell her how mean she really is and Teresa won't be able to understand OR comprehend because she is so stupid. She will NEVER, EVER "get it". !!!!!

I can't wait to see how T's supporters try to spin this reunion series. For crying out loud, she couldn't even decide on if she was being bullied by Caroline or not. Joe Giudice looked and acted like the usual piece of feces we all have come to know and despise. I'm enjoying this reunion, as it's the first time Bravo has really addressed the dysfunction within the Giudice clan.

Teresa has lost her cotton picking mind! When she was asked if she thought she was being bullied she said yes. When Caroline asked HOW did she bully her she said "THE VIEWER SAID..." but SHE couldn't come up with one thing Caroline did to her face that was considered bullying. So basically Tre is teaching her daughters that a man could cheat on you, curse you out to anyone, and treat you like crap as long as he buys you gifts to make it up. No truer words have ever been spoke "This is 15 minutes of fame and when it's over, you'll end up all alone"
