After finally making some headway and tearfully embracing on the July 21 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga sit down with their respective spouses and Dr. V, who tries to get to the bottom of why the Joes have become so violent.

In the sneak peek below, Dr. V starts with Juicy Joe, asking him to rehash what happened. “I guess maybe he [Joe Gorga] felt a little intimidated when I walked in and just kind of charged me,” Joe begins.

Melissa Gorga soon jumps in, adding that the fight was “scary,” but Dr. V soon turns her attention back to Juicy, who she thinks may be overacting out of protection for his wife. “I don’t like that they call her names,” he reasons. “There’s no reason for that and naturally I’m going to stick up for her.”

Just as Dr. V asks Joe if Tre can stick take care of herself, the camera goes black.

We’ve gotta hand it to the doc, though — she’s the first person who has really gotten this family to have a civilized conversation with each other.

Do you think Joe Giudice is a big part of the family’s problems? Check out the sneak peek and sound off below!
