The Giudice and Gorga families officially return from the productive Lake George retreat on this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, so they are using this newfound peace to make up for a year of lost time.
Once they arrive back in the Garden State, Teresa Giudice decides to have the entire Gorga family over for a nice italian dinner. The cousins couldn’t be happier to see one another, and even the adults seem to be playing nice, for the most part.
Joe Gorga acknowledges that he’s not as close to Gia (who is also his goddaughter) as he should be, but vows to change that.
But even with all of the love flowing left and right, there are still a few digs to be had here and there. As she watches all of the cousins play together, Melissa Gorga rhetorically asks Teresa “Don’t you want this for our children?”
When Teresa says “of course” she wants all of their children to play together and be happy, Melissa responds by saying, “Keep being a good little girl and then we could all always be friends!”
Call us crazy, but we’re not too fond of how Mel seems to be blaming all of the family’s problems on Teresa. Still, the Fabulicious mama bites her tongue, telling the Bravo cameras, “In order to be a family, you need to let things roll off your back!”
