It's fair to say that The Real Housewives of New Jersey girls were rowdy this season -- Jacqueline Laurita fought with her daughter Ashley Holmes, Teresa Giudice fought with, well....almost everyone else, including her brother Joe Gorga, sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her cousin Kathy Wakile. As the two-part season 3 reunion show is set to begin on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 10 p.m. ET, on Bravo, we can see in the sneak peek below that Giudice decided to go after the show's queen bee Caroline Manzo...and it wasn't pretty. Watch!
With no one else to yell at, former friends Manzo and Giudice are at war -- the clip doesn't go into details, but regular viewers can guess what's bugging them. "You saying I'm full of sh-- is the biggest compliment in the world," Manzo tells Giudice. "Bring it, baby," she replies. Among all the women, the dialogue is punctuated with eye rolls, calls to "shut up!" and accusations of lying.
Palpably missing from the reunion is Laurita, who is Manzo's sister-in-law. At one point in the video, Manzo is shown weeping because Laurita refused to participate in the reunion after a fall-out (documented on Twitter) with Giudice. Manzo also appears to blame Giudice for her deteriorating relationship with her sister, Dina, who left the show in the middle of season 2. Nor is Manzo happy about some unflattering comments Giudice made about her in her hot-selling cookbook Fabulicious!, such as saying that Caroline was "about as Italian as the Olive Garden." Ouch.
We are repeatedly reminded that family comes before friends. And, as usual, Gorga has her own beef with Giudice. At one point in the conversation, Giudice refers to Gorga as both "the devil" and "the exorcist." (Not to be picky about it, but can someone really be a devil and an exorcist?)
Oh, Danielle Staub, where are you? Come back, please! Give these women someone against whom they can collectively pool their anger!
