The July 21 episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey picked up right where the previous week’s episode left off, with the fighting between the two Joes — Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga. After both men went back to their respective corners, Teresa Giudice enlisted the help of celebrity therapist Dr. V, who said that coming into the RHoNJ fold felt more like “shark week.”
“It felt more like Shark Week than Real Housewives… only I didn’t have the protection of a cage,” the therapist revealed in a Bravo TV blog.
The noted therapist admitted that she wanted to feel “slightly removed” from the situation, and assert the “cool, calm third party who was going to help these folks resolve some problems,” but it was quite obvious that things didn’t end up that way.
“It’s hard not to get swept up in the frenzy when you’re sitting in the middle of it,” said Dr. V, adding “I couldn’t help but feel slightly anxious being surrounded by upset, angry people.”
There was an upside at the end of the whole fiasco though. Joe Gorga and his sis Tre got to sit down in a one-on-one session and cry their feelings out. And according to Dr. V, there was another great moment.
“Nobody tried to bite any limbs off like on Shark Week,” Dr. V answered candidly.
Hmm … just wait until all the ladies have a group session! We think Dr. V will be singing a different tune then!
