If you’re looking for a night of drama, tune into the reliably dramatic reality TV show Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight. Housewife Dina Manzo says goodbye to her long-time assistant/sidekick Luke McKibben, who insists that he’s leaving to pursue a radio career in the UK and not because he can’t stand Manzo’s girlfriend, housewife Teresa Giudice, who will be sentenced on October 2 after pleading guilty to fraud with her husband Joe Giudice.
Drama from the last episode “Guilt Trip” continues to ooze as the other Teresa (Aprea) and her husband Rino will face a yet-to-be revealed medical scare (bloodwork will be needed), in addition to dealing with the aftereffects of Victoria Gotti, daughter of late crime boss John Gotti, telling everyone that Rino once slept with Teresa’s mother, Santa. Amid all this, Melissa Gorga and Dina invite all the girls to Florida for a winter getaway. (Teresa’s last hurrah?) No doubt countless bubbly flutes of Teresa’s Fabellini will be served, and Amber Marchese will find a reason to burst into tears, whether happy or sad.
