In light of Teresa and Joe Giudice’s impending federal fraud trial, everything on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 seems a bit trivial, but there is still drama, tears, and much more to be seen.
In the sneak peek below for the August 11 episode we see Caroline Manzo get emotional at Greg Bennett’s goodbye dinner. Her “third son” (who also happens to be Albie and Chris’ good friend) moved to California several months ago, and Mama Manzo didn’t have an easy time sending him off.
“It’s funny how life brings you gifts,” she says through sobs.
Meanwhile, Jacqueline Laurita finishes her meal with Teresa Giudice on an emotional note. After Tre reveals that she really loved Jacqueline like a “sister,” Jac mentions that she took an issue with one one of Teresa’s tweets that implied she wasn’t properly caring for her autistic son, Nicholas.
“You have no idea what I go through,” she said to her former friend.
Later in the episode Jacqueline reunites with her daughter Ashlee in L.A., telling the Bravo cameras that the two are doing much better. “I love the relationship we have now, it’s not the fighting that it used to be.”
The mom of three also decides that it’s time for a little nip and tuck, and decides to get plastic surgery.
