Next thing we know, a strangled sob bursts from Caroline's dark room. She used to be a delightfully spontaneous mix of emotion, sarcasm and warmth. Now, she is capable of turning it on and off like a faucet
It's the horrific moment when Teresa's husband Joe is outed as a juicy cheater/verbally abusive husband. Get your popcorn and medicinal cocktail, folks ... your significant other is about to look a whole lot better.

Kathy and Richie have popped over to wish Teresa well. They are family, after all, and it's important to support each other. But as soon as Kathy gets to the table, she uses that precious time to invite Teresa to HER upcoming dessert tasting.

I recently caught up with Jacqueline, Chris, and most of the Manzos at the Samsung Hope for Children Gala at the Museum of Natural History in New York, and Jacqueline had a lot to say about Teresa and the Gia Giudice nonsense.
It's time to start the First Annual Jacqueline Laurita Field Day ... and it always includes a tug-of-war. But when things don't go her way, Gia dissolves into tears and throws a tantrum of epic proportions.
