Last week’s discussion (fight? confrontation?) between Jacqueline and Teresa wraps up as the ladies get to the real meat of the problem: their incessant need to tweet every time they’re upset with each other instead of confronting their problems directly. But they agree to get over it, essentially, and move forward in their relationship in a new way. They’ll be civil – and maybe one day, they’ll be friends again.

Jacqueline and Kathy hit up a lingerie store later on to discuss her reconciliation with Teresa, and she reveals that she’s heading to Beverly Hills soon to get a tummy tuck and h...

In the wake of the most restorative bonding retreat in the history of trust building, all is calm and well in Franklin Lakes. Melissa goes to visit Joe with their sons at one of his construction sites, when he gives her some good news – Sizzle Tans wants the couple to appear on a series of billboards for the company.

Since Teresa was the star of a Sizzle Tans commercial several years ago, Melissa declines the offer so she won’t have something to fight about with her sister-in-law, and lets her husband star in the ad by himself. Are we all maturing already?

Things are so good, that Teresa ...

The tearful reconciliation between Joe and Teresa continues, thanks to blessed angel therapist Dr. V, with more talking and negotiation. The siblings absolutely have to get everything off their chests if they really want to move on. Otherwise this whole ordeal was a bust. Send in Melissa.

Melissa is summoned, albeit hesitantly, and she tells Teresa exactly why she feels so betrayed; even if Teresa doesn’t directly say terrible things about her sister-in-law, she is always conveniently in the room when they’re being said. If she truly cared about Melissa and didn’t wish her ill, she would s...

'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: When Joes Collide

The key to a great episode of any Real Housewives franchise is to get the women out of town, in close quarters, to a luxury resort location where they are unable to escape. This episode of RHONJ is no exception.

The time came for Teresa’s trust-building relationship retreat, and her family geared up to inevitably throw down for the cameras. Tensions were running high, especially after last week’s altercation with Kim D and Melissa’s former best friend, Jan. Teresa is going into the retreat unaware that the others hate her/blame her for this incident.

As Richie says before they hit the roa...

Kathy decided to accept her test kitchen from her awful 1950s husband so she can get some work done in peace. In this oasis, she gets to work on cannoli recipes, and invite her friends Caroline, Jacqueline and Rosie over for gossip and taste-testing without Richie breathing down her neck. Rosie delights the ladies with the tale of her meeting with Teresa, and also floats the possibility of them all accompanying her on their “stress retreat.” That would be a firm “no” from all parties.

Teresa, once again reminds the cameras that her father is very ill, and that her parents and brother are t...

Grab your popcorn, because the aftermath of last week’s gym fight is about to begin.

Joe storms home after duking it out with Teresa to tell his wife all about the incident. But before he can even get to the good details, he discovers that the part about Melissa tweeting something catty to Teresa was true, and it makes him flip out. In a way, he has a point. He argues that he’s out there trying to defend her, while she’s trying to give Teresa a taste of her own medicine. Teresa may be wrong, but Melissa shouldn’t stoop to her level.

Melissa has her own fair point, which is that Teresa is ...

Since nothing else in the entire world is happening at all, the Gorgas and the Giudices are still arguing about when Melissa went to visit her father-in-law in the hospital. The general consensus is: yes, Melissa went to the hospital, but Teresa is upset that she waited four days to do so. Melissa is a rational human being who didn’t want to give her gravely ill, elderly father-in-law pneumonia, so she didn’t go right away. Semantics.

Kathy is busy being boring and talking to Rosie and her mother about the same situation. She never went to see her uncle in the hospital because of her own f...

Teresa is channeling her rage into a new hobby: working out in neon spandex. She tells her trainer that she’s working on planning Gia’s 12th birthday party. It’s the first co-ed birthday event, and she’s not looking forward to having boys in the picture. She’s not sure if Joe and Melissa are going to attend.

Jacqueline has found through her research that autistic children could benefit through a hyperbaric chamber bed, so that’s what they buy for Nicholas. Joe sees Jacqueline playing in this giant chamber with her son, and speaks in his Talking Head about how petty his problems are with hi...
