And then Teresa arrives! She does the Teresa thing where she just acts happy and cheerful, and proceeds to completely and deliberately ignore Jacqueline in the process. Jacqueline has a sad. Meanwhile, Teresa takes Joe Gorga outside and tells him that she's ready to go to therapy with him. They both look SO JERSEY right now while having this rather gentle conversation about trying to bolster their collective mental health. It's very disconcerting. Just when it seems that Teresa might at least be open to discussing her own culpability in their strained relationship, she tells us, "I'm hoping that the therapist will help my brother realize that he's the one with the problem." If karma were real, I believe that Dr. Drew would be forced to counsel them.
Jacqueline continues to be miffed and sad as Rosie approaches Teresa with the sole purpose of telling her how hammered she is. When is Rosie going to become an official housewife? And then Melissa and her boobs address the crowd and the "On Display" remix starts to play. Some halfhearted dancing occurs, but Jacqueline can't enjoy the rhythm when she's so upset about what's happened with Teresa. She wants to go ask Teresa where they stand. Caroline is all, "Noooooooooooo!" but Jacqueline does not heed her silent plea. First Jacqueline and Teresa compare notes about who cried more, and then Teresa tells her how fucked up the ambush was. Jacqueline insists that it was not an ambush. And then for a minute Chris and Albie play Real Housewives Theater and supply their own dialogue for Jacqueline and Teresa's argument. It is surprisingly accurate and contains the gem of a line, "If you were really mad at me, you'd throw a table at my face, right?"
After a break, the argument continues. Teresa talks about how hurt she is, and Jacqueline talks about how hurt she is. Jacqueline once again maintains that Teresa may talk to her every day, but she doesn't tell her anything. Probably because she is afraid that Jacqueline will confront her about it on national television. Teresa says that there's nothing to tell, and that Jacqueline even has to ask is sad, and brings up questions about their relationship. Jacqueline is all, "Don't try to flip it!" by which she means the blame and not a table, and the heatedness of the conversation goes up about twelve degrees. Teresa notes that Jacqueline is a psycho bitch, and adds that this would have been the perfect time for her to give Jacqueline a well-deserved punch in the face, were she not too ladylike to do such a thing. I mean! She adds that Jacqueline once punched Caroline in the face, which is a story that I really would like to get full details on. It's really too bad it happened pre-Housewives.
