We know what you're thinking: How can we possibly pick only five WTF moments for any given Housewives episode? Admittedly, this is one challenging task, but we’ve managed to narrow it down.
Read on for our WTF picks for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4, Episode 20, "Strip Down Memory Lane."
5. Be Still, My Beating Heart
Is it just us or is Teresa Giudice constantly trying to get others to feel her racing heart? We know a lot of people say you're heartless, but shoving your friends' hands down your shirt is not the way to prove you have a heart.
4. Just Talk, Teresa!
We're not entirely convinced that Teresa purposely set up Melissa Gorga, but we do have to question the way she approached her sister-in-law in the bathroom. Instead of getting to the point and telling Melissa what happened with baldie at the salon, she tried to put Melissa on the spot by asking her who that guy was and did she, like, work for him or something? Come on.
3. Texting Wars
It's hard to remember that these are grown-ass women when they resort to texting each other while literally sitting at the same table. Meanwhile, Jacqueline Laurita is basing the future of her friendship with Teresa on some texts she's getting from a mutual friend, while Caroline Manzo is showing them to Melissa even though Lauren tries to get her to stop. Put down your phones and have a conversation, ladies.
2. Joe Gorga Brings Backup
We weren't surprised to see hothead Joe Gorga rush to the scene of the stripper accusal when Melissa called him, but we were a little surprised with his choice of backup: Kathy Wakile's hubby, Richie. Unless people are particularly scared of the movie "The Fly," the Jeff Goldblum lookalike is hardly threatening.
1. Melissa Stirs the Pot Herself
Maybe Melissa didn't realize she was being recorded, but we definitely heard her whispering to Joe that he should yell "Shame on you!" at Teresa. When he didn't follow her orders exactly, she insisted, "Say 'shame'!" Well, well, well ... maybe Teresa isn't the only one trying to create drama.
