Teresa then greets all the other Manzo/Laurita/Gorga folks, and somehow Jacqueline and Linda get into a conversation about Teresa. Linda really IS annoying. Do we really need another instigator with this crew? We then cut to Richie, who introduces Caroline to Giacomo Berretta of Bindi Desserts. He's there to do a little tasting himself. Giacomo tastes a delicious-looking lemon thing and seems impressed. Kathy talks to him, and they make a plan to meet when she gets back from Napa. Well, good for her. And then Teresa and Jacqueline have an awkward but somewhat friendly conversation. Caroline worries about the situation, because it is her mission to maintain Teresa's friendless status and Jacqueline is a softy who has genuine affection for Teresa. The two women hug, as Lauren and Caroline look on with distinctive stink-face. Di-stink-tive. Maybe that should be the name of their new perfumery.
And then it is time for the men's caucus at Chris Laurita's house. The mission is to talk about the Napa trip, and plan how to make it a nice time for everyone and not a total shitshow given all the feuding amongst the women. Chris, Joe Gorga, and Richie seem to be in agreement that peace is possible. Or at least they were until Chris lets them know that Joe and Melissa will have to share an RV with Juicy and Teresa. In the words of Richie, "That sucks." Originally the Giudices were going to be with Jacqueline and Chris, but for obvious reasons that is no longer the plan. Joe Gorga remembers the advice of his and Teresa's therapist, that under no circumstances should he and Teresa share an RV. Well, I'm sure they've followed all of his other instructions very well.
