We know what you're thinking: How can we possibly pick only five WTF moments for any given Housewives eppy? Admittedly, this is one challenging task, but we managed to narrow it down.
Read on for our WTF picks for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4, Episode 4, "Drowning Pool."
5. The Giudice Workout Pow-Wow
Is it just us or is Joe Giudice either punching something or otherwise occupied in the bathroom every time they show him these days? The whole time Teresa Giudice recounts the events of the Solstice (or, according to Tre, Solcist) Showdown with Melissa Gorga, Joe was sitting in some sort of scary splits contraption while Teresa was pumping out push-ups. We guess that's just how these two roll.
4. Kettle? Meet Pot?
And speaking of their husband/wife pep rally, where Joe cheered up Tre by calling her idiot cousin a frog, Teresa criticized her brother for going back to his wife and telling her things she said to him in confidence. (Even though these things were basically that his wife is a gold-digging floozy.) "I don't run back and tell you like a little pansy!" she whined to her husband. Except ... that's exactly what you're doing ... like, right this very second.
3. The Trainer's Stash
When Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita got together with their oh-so-blonde trainer, Jolene, we weren't nearly as alarmed by the fact that the fitness specialist carries a bottle of wine in her sports bag or the realization that she was possibly tipsy during their session, as we were by her choice of vino. Sutter Home, really? What is this, a tenth-grade slumber party?
2. The Wakile Party for Two
So the reason none of the kids' friends showed up to Kathy Wakile's end-of-school-year party was because Rich told his children not to invite their pals unless they want to be forever embarrassed by Teresa. Truth be told, we don't blame him. Unfortunately, his master plan kinda backfired when Teresa and the Gorgas were pretty much the only people that did show up, putting their blowout that much more in the spotlight. Not to mention, Kathy made both potato and macaroni salad — what a waste.
1. The Sibling Showdown
Finally, the brother-and-sister fight itself. If you thought Teresa and Melissa's showdown was hard to follow, the one between her and little Joe was like quantum physics. It's as if they were both having arguments with people in their heads; they don't actually hear each other at all. After a string of unrelated accusations and nonsensical whimpering, Teresa put an end to the argument by calling Joe "the meanest brother ever." Joe's response? "I'm an angel from God." OK, let's not get carried away now.
