Hopefully this will not harm her career in either music management or fashion merchandising. The judge dismissed the harassment charge. Jacqueline is "trying to lose baby weight" and is still friends with Kim G. because she needs some drama and back stabbing in her life. Teresa and Joe are enjoying the success of Teresa's book and still maintain that despite $11 million debt, there home is not in foreclosure. Reality is magic, people. At least, Bravo reality. And then as if anyone cares, they report that Albie graduated from the police academy and still hopes to return to law school. Low achiever Chris still hopes to open a strip club/car wash because he is aiming high and dreaming big. Caroline hoists a stein of wine up to her mouth and toasts to her family.
