Time has not healed any wounds for “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” The ladies recently sat down for a two-part reunion special, nearly a year after they wrapped shooting the fourth season, which ended this past Sunday night with all the cast members fighting with Teresa Giudice over the fact that she supposedly set up her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga to be exposed as a former stripper.
On the finale, Jacqueline Laurita told Gorga she had heard that Giudice was in cahoots with a man named Angelo who claimed Gorga used to dance at his gentleman’s club and the two were planning to “embarrass her” about her supposed stripper past. Naturally, Giudice denied all – and still, a year later, she’s adamant that she had nothing to do with the scheme and never told her co-stars that Gorga used to be a stripper … a claim that Laurita calls BS.
“She wanted me to call them out on everything," Laurita tells Andy Cohen in a preview of the special (click here to watch the clip), which airs this Sunday. Laurita then turns and addresses Giudice: "You were telling me what to say and making me uncomfortable. I had other s--t going on in my life and you didn't give a f--k! All you cared about was exposing them. You wanted me to call out that Melissa was a stripper, you wanted me to call out [cousin] Kathy [Wakile], that she didn't get a designer bag until she was 40, like that meant something."
Once again, Giudice denied it all – and that’s when the usually even-tempered Laurita snapped. “What?! I swear on my child that you wanted me to call her out! You are a liar, you're sick, you're going to hell!" she screams at her onetime friend. Giudice’s response? “You’re the devil because you’re wearing red,” which is the same comeback she used with Gorga during a similar fight on the Season 3 reunion last year.
Tune in to part one of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion special on Bravo this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
