That night, Caroline hosts her second radio show under the wing of Chief Engineer Christopher Knight. Alas, not Peter Brady. Tonight's topic is divorce. Jacqueline is listening from home, and it's a very pertinent topic for her, especially when Caroline and a caller talk about making sure that children of divorce know that, even though their parents may consider the marriage a mistake, kids will never be a mistake. Next up, Caroline talks to a listener whose friend is a Facebook oversharer. Alas, Jacqueline doesn't listen to this segment because Chris arrives home, though she could probably take some tips for dealing with Bratshley. Caroline moves onto divorced parents harboring guilt, which definitely hits close to home for Jacqueline. Chris calls in on the sly to ask how he can step in as a step-parent and make his relationship with his daughter-by-marriage more meaningful. Caroline chokes up as soon as she realizes who the caller is and heaps the praise on him for having pure intentions and commitment to his stepdaughter.
The next day is Christmas Eve at the Giudice home. Teresa, Juicy, and their respective parents prepare The Feast of the Seven Fishes as Teresa informs us that "Christmas Eve is my holiday." You got that, Jesus? Today is not about you. It's Teresa's day. You get tomorrow, so suck it up. As Audriana toddles around in an explosion of tulle that looks straight out of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, the men of the family take a minute to tease Gia a little bit about a ring (the Princess Diana-Kate Middleton one, in fact) that a boy gave her for Christmas. Teresa states emphatically that her brother Joe is just like his dad when he was younger, and, though Melissa may have married into the Gorga name, she doesn't have the Gorga personality. Then everyone cheers to a merry Christmas.
