Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been one for the books. As soon as Real Housewives OG Teresa Giudice returned from prison, her husband Joe Giudice left their home and four daughters to serve his sentence. And a new villain has surfaced to the top of the storylines — Jacqueline Laurita. Jacqueline isn’t afraid to call Teresa “the other c word” (criminal) and has accused Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga of having four nose jobs. On the last episode of RHONJ, Teresa reminds Melissa, “Jacqueline punched Caroline in the face.” (That’s Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline’s sister-in-law, who used to be on the show and is now star of her own spin-off Manzo’d with Children.)

This isn’t the first time Teresa has brought up the punch. She brought it up in 2012, too, and Caroline wasn’t happy about it. She wrote: “As you all know, we’ve discussed this before and neither Jac or I have tried to hide it. What bothers me is the fact that it was brought up again, so many years later.” Caroline explained in 2012: “This happened over ten years ago, shortly after Jac gave birth to CJ. She was suffering from post partum depression and going through a really tough time. I’m insulted and disappointed that T would use Jac’s suffering as a sticking point. There’s nothing funny about post partum depression, shame on her for that.” The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Sundays at 8pm on Bravo.
