Teresa also has a Mercedes SUV, and heads to meet up with Caroline, Jacqueline and Kim D. at a boutique called COC+CO. Rolls off the tongue, right? Kim D.'s gift to these ladies for walking in her show is to let them go shopping at this store. Caroline's hair is slicked back, perhaps because she's feeling particularly agro. Teresa explains to Cynthia, the store's proprietor, that she used to be in the fashion industry. She worked for Macy's. Kim D. adds that Teresa's job is now to be a mom, and Teresa adds that she's an author. Kim D. throws in a derisive, "Writing her lil' recipes." Cynthia asks what Teresa is making for Thanksgiving. The answer is lasagna, and also turkey. Teresa invites Cynthia over, because she's having a "Friendsgiving" since everyone in her family hates her.
Caroline figures that this is a good time to drop the news that Kathy came for a visit the other day. Maybe Caroline has her hair slicked back because she's fresh from her daily shave? Caroline tries to explain what happened with Kathy, but Teresa won't shut up and Caroline calls her on it. She instructs her to listen for a minute. I'm sure you can guess how that goes. Caroline says that everybody's talking in the Gorga family and nobody's listening. In response, Teresa talks. She goes into that thing again about how it's so hard to track Caveman Joe down because he's in construction. I mean, he does have a house and seems to be home every night to bone his wife. It can't be that hard to find him. Teresa is also busy and working. Caroline suggests that, if Teresa is so busy, that she should write Caveman Joe a letter. Jacqueline adds that Teresa should write one vitriolic draft, then rip it up and write something nicer. Teresa tries to explain that she's always nice. Alls she wants to say in the letter is that she loves Caveman Joe and wants them to be a family again, and what are you doing, wake up, you're hurting our children and parents. Caroline points out that the latter part might be construed as an attack. She adds that there's obviously an issue with communication. Teresa pipes in with a, "Not on my end." I mean, if anything the woman is clearly a master communicator. Jacqueline offers to help Teresa with the letter, which is the worst choice she's made after everything concerning Ashley.
