Oh God, and then the arguing just keeps happening, with Kathy still peeved that Teresa grabbed her face. I mean, in fairness, Teresa didn't clock her. But she agrees to keep her hands to herself. And then we get to rue the invention of wireless technology as Kathy gets out her phone and pulls up some sort of tabloid story in which Teresa claimed that the others were always taking digs at her about her financial situation, including asking her how many times she's been to the mall in a week. Kathy points out that it was Richie and not her who said that, and Caroline yells that it was a joke. I think the problem here, in addition to everyone having a differing concept of "friendship," is that everyone has a different concept of what constitutes a "joke," at least when it comes to themselves. Then there is some arguing about Richie, and eventually Teresa agrees that she will make no public comments about Kathy or Melissa. Note that she does not include Caroline in this pledge.
One of the men eventually asks Juicy to get Teresa out of there, and he approaches her to say that he changed their flights and they are going to leave tomorrow since Juicy has some "business" to take care of. Teresa then starts squealing like a maniac, and runs out of the room. Once she's gone, Lauren calls her a piece of shit. From her room, Teresa wants the bitches to bring it. Articles, articles, articles. In the words of Juicy Giudice, "So what?" Melissa asks Kathy why she even talked to Teresa, and Kathy makes some stuff up about how she didn't want Teresa to feel like everyone is against her. Anyway, kudos to Melissa and Jacqueline for staying out of this shitshow.
Oh God, and then Teresa comes out of her room, all snotty-voiced, and tells Caroline that she never, ever wrote one bad thing about her in a magazine. She's concocting some scheme about how to prove this to Caroline, but Caroline announces that it's over. Teresa walks off, muttering that Caroline is a see you next Tuesday. Once she's gone, Caroline AGAIN notes that she's completely finished with Teresa. Well, good, I'm glad that's final since she's seemed to be on the fence about it for all seventeen episodes of this season. Then she tells Melissa and Kathy that she heard lots of terrible stuff about them over the years, but when she actually met them they were great, and everything about Teresa's psycho nature clicked into place. Melissa asks what Teresa said about her, but Caroline doesn't want to go there. Well if that were true, she wouldn't have brought it up. Ha, and then in an interview, she tells us that Teresa called Melissa a gold-digger, whore, family-wrecker, and copycat who was once a stripper. Well, it's a good thing Melissa will never hear that. Melissa pledges to stay out of it, and Caroline asks Melissa to tell her if their relationship ever causes trouble in the family.
