Just when I was about to fall asleep during the first yawn-inducing three-quarters of Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Victoria Gotti goes and drops the mother, quite literally, of all bombs on Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese: She revealed (supposedly) why Teresa and Rino Aprea got divorced years ago. And dude. It was shocking. Shocking, I say!
As with all hearsay, it may or may not be true, but Gotti seemed really convincing when she told the girls this piece of gossip: Rino cheated on Teresa ... with her mother. I know. I, like Giudice and Marchese, was sure she was going to say "Nicole," Teresa's twin sister, was the person with whom Rino cheated -- which would have been bad enough. But no. It was her mother. What the what?! If this is true, how can these people all be in the same room with one another? How does Teresa talk to her mother still? And how on earth did she and Rino get back together after something like this? I'm aghast and have so many questions!
I don't typically consider myself to be susceptible to false gossip, but I'm leaning in the direction of believing Gotti's accusations here. I mean, what does she have to gain from telling a story like this? And what kind of person would make up a story like this? You've gotta be pretty low to pull something of this nature out of thin air.
Guess all we can do now is wait to see how Teresa reacts to hearing what Gotti said about her. We likely won't see her reaction until the reunion, but my guess is she's just going to deny, deny, deny. And who could blame her? Who the hell would ever want to admit to something like this? Gross.
Do you think Rino cheated on Teresa with her mother?
