Tonight’s Bravo episode of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” is titled “Everything Is Coming Up Rosie.”
Melissa is working on her book and asks Antonia for help folding clothes. She tells Antonia about her father that she is writing about. Antonia never met him but knows that he watches over them from heaven. Joe arrives home from the gym to greet Antonia and Melissa. He tells Melissa that he is pissed but does not want to discuss it in front of Antonia. Melissa sends her to put her clothes away and do her homework, but Antonia listens by the door as he tells her that he encountered Teresa in the gym. He asked Melissa about a pocketbook that Teresa was ranting about. Melissa told Joe that she was asked if she rented her Chanel bag, and she told them to ask the person who filed bankruptcy if they rented theirs. Her exact tweet was; “can u even rent a Chanel?! Cast member publicly claims bankruptcy & I have to rent?” Joe went on to tell Melissa that he told Teresa how much he loved his wife and was accused of being pussy whipped. Joe said that from this day forward, when she does something wrong, he will educate her and point out what she does wrong. He told her that she was attacking Teresa and when his parents come to the house, they look at her like she is the devil. Then he told her that he was still her brother and do not stoop to her level.
As the kids are at soccer, Teresa and Joe Giudice have a chance to talk. She tells him how she met her brother at the gym. She told him how aggressive he was, and Joe said he has that Napoleon thing; she corrected him and said bipolar, but he insisted on Napoleon. He then explained that he was a little short guy who wanted to beat everybody up, one day his army turned on him, and it was his demise. They call it Napoleon syndrome for short people who want to rule the world. Teresa told Joe that his wife had so much control over him, that if she wanted to make things better, she would. As they watch the girls, Milania is uninterested in the practice. After practice is over, Teresa and Joe give the soccer ball a few kicks.
Caroline, Jacqueline, Kathy and Rosie are at a Benefit Cosmetics affair and having a girl’s night out. Jacqueline gets her eyebrows threaded, but Rosie feels no need to do so. Caroline receives a phone call from Teresa and tells her that her brother attacked her aggressively at the gym. She told her that if he wants to fix things, this is not the way. Caroline says that maybe they need professional help, but they went down that road before. Caroline is going to step out of it and let them handle it themselves. Caroline is in a better place with Teresa, but her involvement in this ends here.
Caroline goes back to the women and tells them that Teresa just called her. Jacqueline yells; “buzz kill.” Kathy is curious, and Caroline tells her that she and Joe got into it at the gym.
At Kathy’s house, Rich comes home with the packaging for Kathy’s cannoli kit. She is disappointed that it is a plain box, and not the concept her had envisioned. She is disappointed that he is trying to cut corners by using a cheaper wrapper and overrode her say on the design.
In Hoboken, Caroline is at their apartment and making dinner for her three kids. The children are discussing how they grew up in a home where the father was always working. Women today want a different scenario. Christopher told them he did not want to have girls, because for zero to ten years, he must keep “the thing” alive, and from ten to twenty-five he needs to make sure they are not a whore. This is too much pressure for him. They then discussed the sexual habits of fat girls. Christopher said that fat girls are blow job queens. Lauren said this did not apply to her. Thankfully, Albie remained silent during the entire conversation.
Rosie is at a cocktail lounge with Joe Gorga. She tells him that she has not had sex in six years. Rosie explains that both she and her cousin Joe are alike. They both have a soft heart, but a short temper. She is telling him how she knows how much it must be hurting him to be on the outs with his sister. Rosie wants to help the cause and talk to her.
Jacqueline is home with Nicholas and trying to have patience with him. He is a challenge for her, and she is in tears when Chris arrives home. She has been trying to do what the therapist told her to do, but the results are not immediate. She did a magazine article giving other parents hope, who have children with autism, but it is difficult for her too. He is adorable, and fans wish all the best for him, whether they like his mother or not.
At the apartment, Albert is trying to cook something, but the flame on the stove is too low for his liking. Caroline tells him that none of their children want to get married, which Albert agrees is a good thing.
At Cafface Beauty Bar, Lauren is visited by her two brothers. They talk about her marrying Vito, but right now she is not interested. All three Manzo kids want to be financially secure before thinking about marriage. Caroline tells Albert that he created workaholic monsters who are just like him. Work is their first priority, and he missed out on a lot because he was always working. Just then he set off the smoke alarm as he was cooking and said there is no way they are selling the house.
Richie took Kathy for a ride; they went to a fully equipped commercial kitchen that Richie leased for her, so she does not have him under her feet while she does her thing. Richie took an idea of hers and ran with it, without even consulting with her.
Teresa is writing her blog. She was accused of not doing her own cooking, by her brother. Others have said that she does not even write her own blog. Her phone rang and it was Rosie, who wants to meet her to settle things.
At Melissa’s house, her mother, aunt and sisters come to visit and bring her pictures for her book. They discuss her feelings about her father and how she is portraying them in her book.
Kathy is peeved at Richie, and his take charge attitude. She is disgusted that she seemed to have no say in anything anymore; even her own creations.
Teresa meets Rosie at a lounge. Rosie tells her that when her name comes up in conversation, she gets very angry. She asks why she told Caroline that she wanted nothing to do with Kathy. Kathy did apologize for calling her father a coward. Rosie starts getting loud as people are watching and starts pounding upon the table. When Teresa mentions her sister, she really gets infuriated. Then the conversation gets louder, as Rosie is sucking down the drinks, the f-bombs start dropping and Rosie spills a drink on her phone. When Teresa told Rosie that she was just like her father, Rosie seemed to straighten up. Then she mentioned Teresa and her brother. Teresa told Rosie about a holistic healing weekend retreat that she was thinking about and Rosie suggested they made it a family affair and include the Manzos and Lauritas.
