The Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off tonight in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. While many of the H’wives were forced to pick up the pieces of their Jersey shore houses, forever-feuding sisters and law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga also began to rebuild their relationship for the sake of their kids.

While their respective daughters, Milania and Antonia initiated the plans, once Teresa and Melissa worked out the details, they agreed to meet as a foursome and take the girls to make bracelets.

As can be expected, the outing was tense and awkward, but everyone kept smiles on their faces.

Still, Caroline Manzo knew things weren’t right and took Joe Gorga aside for a one-on-one chat. Caroline explained that she sympathized with Joe’s difficult relationship with Teresa (Caroline hasn’t talked to her own sister, Dina, in about a year) and offered to talk to Tre on Joe’s behalf.

We love that Caroline wants to make everything right, but as Melissa pointed out, this isn’t her family. Do you think Caroline was right to get involved in Teresa and Joe’s relationship? Vote below!
