Caroline claims that if Teresa had said that she hated her, the conversation could have ended peacefully then and there. But instead, Teresa kept continuing to say kind things, and that was just too much for Caroline "Rules" Manzo. She's ready to throw down. Oh God, and then they start talking about the tabloid articles again. Teresa is as fed up with this subject as we are. Not only is Teresa saying nasty things about the rest of them, Caroline says, but she made some sort of seven-cover deal. Teresa denies it and says that she put the truth out about her family, and then Caroline says that she's lying, and Teresa says she's not lying, and Caroline says she's lying, and Teresa says she's not lying, and it's all very much like a circle in a circle, like a wheel within a wheel. The windmills of these particular minds have a lot of space in which to blow, at least. Caroline says that Teresa is a disgrace, which I think is true for a whole host of reasons that have nothing to do with tabloid articles.
Back at the men's table, Juicy says that tabloids run bullshit, and the Giudices make the money. Chris confirms that they get paid to do the articles. Juicy says that they don't get paid for every one, but that they have some sort of exclusive deal with In Touch. Chris then questions Juicy about a cover story from In Touch that claimed Teresa was going to have a baby boy -- a story that is obviously false. Juicy wants to know what's so bad about the article, and Chris is like, "You put that article out there." Juicy yells that In Touch came to them. Chris counters that they put the story out, and Juicy yells, "So what?" I think that's his life's philosophy in two words. Chris tells us that Teresa puts these stories out because she wants the attention and wants to be a star, and also because she's getting paid. He's fine with her making money, but not that she's blaming someone else for all the bullcrap that goes along with it. Juicy notes that it's not his fault that Teresa sells more magazines than any star out there. Is that true? Oh, don't start making me feel concerned about humanity again. I am too weary! It is very late on a Sunday night! Juicy says that everyone else would do the same thing if they had the opportunity, and Chris counters that Jacqueline was recently offered $50,000 to write a story about Teresa and wouldn't do it. Juicy thinks she was a moron not to, and I kind of have to agree.
