On last Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, Nicole Napolitano and Amber Marchese turned the intensity up to 11 with the first real fight of the season. How did things go from zero to sixty so quickly? Well, if you ask Nicole's twin, Teresa Aprea, the blame lies squarely on Amber's shoulders.


"Out of respect for Bobby and his home, I was actually quite calm when Amber approached me in full-blown phoniness," Teresa wrote in her latest Bravo blog." I calmly walked over to Nicole so that she and Amber would rectify this matter. All Nicole expected was for Amber to apologize. However, Amber lost control, raised her voice, snapped her fingers, and made demands for us to 'get upstairs.' Is she kidding? I will never be spoken to that way, nor will I ever respond to the verbal condescending abuse of a bully."

Teresa also clarified some of the details of the physical fight (at least from her point of view), saying that "I saw what happened that night between them. Amber grabbed Nicole’s arm. Nicole pushed her hand off and pulled her hair. There was physical contact between them both."

We totally buy that the fight was physical on both sides — it certainly seemed that way on screen — but we're not as convinced that the escalation was all Amber's fault. Amber was totally rude to snap at the other women, but leaving the room to talk things out was probably a good idea... But less fun for us viewers at home than what we got!

What do you think: Was it Amber that lost control, or was Nicole out of line too?
