As we near Sunday night’s new episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” we are going to see a pretty major recurring theme play out — some of the ladies opting to blame Teresa Giudice for all of the drama circulating through the family.
This time around, it is Caroline Manzo who is pointing the finger. Caroline’s troubles with Teresa are pretty well-documented at this point, beginning with the now-infamous argument over a cookbook quote and ending with what unfolded at Jacqueline Laurita’s field day during the last new episode two seasons ago. In some way or another, Teresa has fought with every single woman in the cast so far this year — though most notably her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga after she made a comment that she could see her leaving her brother Joe for a wealthier man.
Is Teresa really the only person to blame here? Probably not, but as is the case with most family drama (in particular the nationally-televised kind), it is always easier to pen one person down as the scapegoat than it is to scatter blame across the board.
As for what bookends this scene below, check back Sunday night — we’re going to have a full review of the episode as a whole.
