Then there's a completely weird and uncomfortable interlude in which Christopher has Joe act out various emotions for an impromptu photo shoot. For some reason, sensitive involved nipple tweaking. And clearly anger involves table flipping, which everyone gets a kick out of in light of Teresa's antics. After Albert calls it "a Gorga thing," Teresa insists she's only ever flipped one table and that she'll never do it again. Melissa warns the group never to dare Joe to do anything because he will most certainly do it. Suddenly everyone's eyes glisten with evil glee and within seconds they're daring Joe to switch outfits with Jacqueline. Christopher pipes up, "You don't have the body for it," and it is ON. As Joe goes off to change, Melissa tells everyone that the Gorgas are "all a little cuckoo."
Bonus footage: Juicy makes a pass at Greg, and Teresa tries to get in on the action. Greg respectfully declines.
Joe returns wearing a very sparkly frock and stud-walks around the kitchen. Oh dear, it's not even a dress, it's a jumpsuit. And Joe's wearing earrings. One of the guys gets the bright idea for him to do a high kick. Jacqueline makes a mental note to burn that shit right after everyone leaves. Christopher declares the Gorgas "awesome," and Melissa jokes that she is "so not having sex tonight."
The fun quickly gets sucked out of the room when talk turns to siblings. Teresa blurts out that Joe getting married was like losing a brother. Melissa squawks, "You have a sister over here, hello!" They start waving their hands and daring each other to be sisters. Yep, this is going nowhere fast. Caroline interjects to remind them, "You're in a good place! Stay there!" As an olive branch, Melissa invites everyone to her Christmas party that weekend. This backfires when Teresa falls silent, clearly getting territorial over her friends, though she claims she's not worried about sharing with Melissa. Oh, how charitable you are, Teresa! Really embracing the Christmas spirit...
Next week: Kathy thinks the Christmas season is a perfect time to reconcile with Teresa. And what better place than at the Gorgas' $50,000 party? Except Kathy dresses like she's going to war with some sort of suit of armor take-off dress. And that's without mentioning that Melissa has invited the dreaded Monica Chacon to her party, and Joe is downing drinks like it's the christening, part two. Soon enough, Melissa fears that her elegant affair is going to turn into a mosh pit.
