I think this season it’s already pretty clear that Caroline has rethought her behavior last year and decided that she wants to take on the role of peace maker. She tells Jacqueline that she met with Teresa and that Tre is still holding a major grudge. At this point Jacqueline could care less what Teresa says or feels, she’s over it all.

I thought Joe Giudice never spent time alone with his kids but I guess if a camera follows him and Gia to get a snack, well then it’s good. He’s trying to talk to Gia about boys and not making out with them. It’s one of the most awkward scenes ever and just seems to be exploiting a whiny Gia. Her 12th birthday is coming up and Teresa is throwing her a huge bash which is causing issues galore.

Melissa is going to the party with the kids but Joe Gorga feels sick just thinking about attending. At the same time they are all worried about Teresa and Joe’s father who needs a pacemaker put in. Teresa also won’t make up with Kathy so she and Melissa bond over the messes in the family. They wait for Jacqueline to join them at the gym.

Kim D is still in the picture this season. After helping Teresa to launch striippergate last season she’s still spending quality time with Tre.  As all of the other girls were at the gym, Teresa’s friend Linda calls Tre to play spy. Of course Teresa gets catty and insists that these girls don’t belong at HER gym.

Teresa has all of her girls at the salon getting their hair done for Gia’s birthday and Melania flips out on Tre and tells her to be quiet and zip it. She then bops over to Gia and basically pushes her buttons, asking Gia if she feels bad knowing that her uncle won’t be there. These girls are the most disrespectful brats on television for sure.

When the party finally rolls around Gia ups the brat ante and becomes more obnoxious then ever.  Kim D is at the party when Melissa arrives at the party and starts grilling her on being at Teresa’s gym. Kim also shames Melissa for not going to the hospital to visit her father-in-law. Melissa sets her straight and insists she was there but Teresa insists that she wasn’t there.

Melissa is mad that Teresa is calling her out and trying to make her look bad in a public place once again.  Gia actually walks up to them and tells them to stop fighting. Melissa ends up taking her kids home about ten minutes after they arrive. Tune in next week for more drama!
