Teresa gets shifty-eyed as Rosie pleads with her to fix all their problems before they erupt into a family war. They talk about their family history, and how Teresa got a paper route because Rosie had one. Rosie admits that she was distant with the family, because she didn't fit in. Teresa reveals to us that Kathy left Rosie out, and hated the fact that she was gay. She asks Rosie if she remembers how Kathy treated her. Well THIS is an interesting development, isn't it? And we all know that the Giudices are heroes who work tirelessly for gay rights, so they really should feel comfortable calling this out. And then of course the conversation turns to Teresa's falling out with Caroline and Jacqueline, and she claims that she cried for two days, but says that most of all she wants the non-Manzos on the show to all be a family again. Rosie digs it, though she still seems a bit skeptical about the whole thing.
Elsewhere in Gorga-land, Joe Gorga accuses Rich of French kissing Juicy Joe. Rich is like, "Whatever. My bi-curious nature is well documented." He loved it. I'm sure Juicy Joe tastes like whatever the flavor of steroids is. Joe tells the rest of the family that Teresa agreed to therapy, and even admitted that she may have some culpability in the situation. They are stunned. Joe rightly says that by the time they're done with him, their therapist will need a therapist. At the very least he'll earn some time off for disability. Richie thinks that therapy is a great idea, not least of all because he might get a break from the pleasure of constantly having to listen to all of Joe and Teresa's shit. And then, showing just how similar he is to Teresa, Joe says that he doesn't need therapy, is the most sane man you'll ever meet, and is an angel from God. God does have a pretty fucked-up sense of humor. Rosie arrives and tells everyone about her visit with Teresa. She notes that sometimes Teresa seems so dumb that you are fooled into believing that she's harmless. But underneath it all, they all know she's crawling back to her family because the Manzos have shunned her. Joe thinks that's okay, and they have to be there for her. But then he tells us that Teresa is a shitty friend, which is no surprise because she's also a shitty family member. Joe is looking out for her best interests by taking her to therapy, where a licensed professional will be able to tell her exactly what she does wrong. Rosie puts in an endorsement for therapy, which changed her from an angry person to a jovial alcoholic, and we head to commercials.
