For his part, Joe Gorga finally chips in with his two cents about Teresa's lack of basic comprehension skills. The baseline here is that these people just really fucking hate each other and one couple should bite it and move far, far away. Or just Juicy should move far, far away. Like Siberia, or a molten hole in the center of the earth. He says lots of derogatory things about how Joe Gorga is a woman, and Caroline is boring, and Kathy looks like a frog, and Rosie is a butch boy, and then tells Teresa that she doesn't need anyone but him. Isn't that a hallmark sign of abusive spouses? In any case, Teresa should take exactly the opposite advice of any advice Juicy Joe gives her. Listen to the advice, reverse it, and do that. As Juicy reaffirms his position that Joe -- or Josephine, as he is now known -- is a bitch, we head to commercials.
When we return, Teresa heads to Jacqueline's for a little heart to heart. Jacqueline, as it happens, is upset that Teresa put her on the spot at the Solsist party. She's wearing a Skinny Italian t-shirt as she breaks this news, which shows that she's actually a good friend. I can't remember exactly what happened at this party, and I'm pretty fucking sick of hearing them talk about it. Instead of trying to figure it out, I'm going to spend a minute talking about Teresa's worrisome sun damage. Her chest looks like it has liver spots. Not good! Anyway, Teresa tells Jacqueline that she should have loyalty to her rather than her sister-in-law, Caroline. Teresa claims that if Jacqueline's sister-in-law said something about her to Teresa, Teresa would tell Jacqueline. Jacqueline gets a funny look and then brings up Dina Manzo. The beloved Dina Manzo! The real juice is that Jacqueline and Dina aren't even talking. This is what everyone wants to know about really, but it's just a point to illustrate that Teresa is friends with Dina and Jacqueline doesn't try to interfere with their friendship just because she has some probably juicy beef with Dina OH MY GOD WHAT IS IT. How could it be that the House of Manzo is as fucked up as the House of Gorga? This show is not doing people of Italian descent any favors, as you already know. Anyway, Jacqueline and Teresa aren't going to end their friendship over this. YET.
