On The Real Housewives of New Jersey episode “The Jersey Breakfast Club,” the ladies leave the suburbs and travel to a cattle ranch in Oklahoma for a weekend excursion. Some of the ladies bond by sharing personal stories from their past including new wife Jackie Goldschneider who reveals she had an eating disorder when she was in her twenties. When Teresa Giudice reveals to her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga that Joey (Teresa’s brother and Melissa husband) should spend more time with their father, Melissa warns Teresa that if she pushes that argument, “my husband will explode.” Teresa responds by saying “Then you should make him not f—king explode.” Apparently Teresa believes Melissa can control her husband.
Perhaps Teresa thinks getting involved in her brother’s relationships (with his father and his wife) is a good thing and that, rather than staying out of it, telling her brother what to do will result in him obeying her wishes. Some might question Teresa’s motive. Why is she stirring the pot? Is she really worried about her father feeling neglected by Joey? Or is she just lashing out while at home with her kids without her husband (who’s in jail). The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 pm on Bravo, right before The Real Housewives of Dallas.
