On tonight’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, tensions flare between newbie Jackie Goldschneider and Teresa Giudice.
The ladies gather at Jennifer Aydin’s house for a kid’s birthday party. After some small talk, Jackie Goldschneider and Teresa Giudice get into a screaming match over Joe Giudice’s 41-month prison sentence.
While defending Melissa Gorga regarding Joe Gorga not spending sufficient time with their sickly father, Giacinto Gorga.
“I don’t wanna be told how to convey something to my husband,” Melissa starts. “My marriage is strong. It’s good for a f*cking reason. We talk. And that’s it!”
“Nobody tells me how to speak to my husband. Not my sister-in-law. Not my mother. No one!”
“You should have made him understand” Teresa replied.
“Do you really think that Melissa could control her husband’s emotions?” Jackie asked Teresa.
Jackie then throws a grenade in Teresa’s face, “I’m sorry. With all due respect, do you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?”
As fans know, prison talk is a trigger for the RHONJ felon — and Jackie’s bold assertion signaled the end of the party for the Giudice gang.
“Why are you bringing up my husband and where he is?” A heated Teresa Giudice yells.
“Well why are you bringing up Melissa’s husband?” Jackie barks back.
