I fully expect fireworks tonight on The Real Housewive’s of New Jersey. The Giudice’s, Gorga’s and Waikile’s are all headed up to Lake George for a healing retreat. They think or at least hope that if they are all in one place maybe they can fix things. I’m guessing it’ll never happen. Caroline and Jacqueline both decide not to join the families. Instead Caroline and Albert are enjoying time together without the kids. He is inching towards retirement and she’s happy to spend quality time with him.

Teresa and Joe arrive in Lake George first and when everyone else gets there she is upset to find that Caroline and Jacqueline aren’t coming. Somewhere in Teresa’s mind she truly believes that Jacqueline is the cause of all of her families problems! Her husband tries to be supportive by telling her that autism isn’t really that bad and Jacqueline uses her kid as an excuse to be horrible. This guy is such an asshole isn’t he?

Everyone sits down to eat lunch and to say it’s awkward is an understatement. As they sit around the table I can’t help but notice how old Teresa looks. She’s looking like all of the drama is finally taking its toll on her! Finally their two experts arrive to rescue the group from each others’ company. They are there to help everyone work together on trust building techniques.

The room is filled with people and yet Teresa keeps talking to the expert about Jacqueline. She then goes on to blame not talking to her brother for over a year on Jacqueline. Joe Giudice interrupts Teresa to try and refocus her and she insists again that it’s all because of Jacqueline. Kathy tells her that it’s like talking to a wall. The experts look absolutely clueless about how to help. The Wakilie’s and Gorga’s comment on how delusional Teresa actually is.

Melissa gets on her hands and knees and asks Teresa to simply stop hurting her family.  Teresa calls her crazy and still refuses to take a shred of responsibility for starting the vicious rumors and things escalate as the supposed experts have lost all control of the situation. Joe calls Teresa scum and that’s it she gets her husband. Joe Giudice comes storming in and ends up down and rolling with Joe Gorga. Tune in next week for more RHONJ!
