Teresa Giudice gets herself into some serious hot water on this week’s finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey after the other housewives accuse her of trying to sabotage Melissa Gorga by revealing that Melissa used to work at a gentleman’s club. Unfortunately for Tre, her friend and Posche boutique owner Kim “D.” DePaola doesn’t exactly do anything to defuse the situation.

Instead, we’ve so far seen Kim D. make matters worse. For example, in last week’s episode she was grilling Melissa’s old boss Angelo about what exactly Melissa did for him, even though Teresa repeatedly asked her to stop.

On Sunday’s episode, we also see Kim D. get into with Joe Gorga after he shows up at the Posche Fashion Show to come to Melissa’s defense.

So, why then, is Teresa still socializing with Kim D. if several members of her family strongly dislike her?

Teresa and Kim D. were spotted out twice together over the past few weeks, first at Posche on Aug. 21, and then at a New York City restaurant on Sept. 11. 

Even though the finale was filmed over a year ago and Teresa is currently not speaking to her brother or Melissa, we’re still surprised that she would openly socialize with a person who clearly doesn’t like her family.
