‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ review: Caroline Manzo’s birthday … party?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey” took off to the Napa Valley for Sunday night’s new episode, and this meant the opportunity to catch Teresa Giudice and a number of the other ladies in a different sort of environment. What it did not stop, meanwhile, was drama happening at inopportune times.

Despite Jacqueline Laurita’s attempts to make up with Teresa Giudice, it was pretty clear that just about everyone was just about ready to see her head back to the east coast this week. Caroline Manzo was done being around her, Melissa Gorga’s made her opinion known for months, and there is also the quite frankly awful scene featuring “Juicy” Joe Giudice that we have been hearing about for weeks on end.

As for what managed to really set the ladies off against Teresa here, it seemed to be first her reaction to Joe being on the phone — which was to try and steal him away for an intimate moment in the vineyard. Then, it transitioned into some general disdain for her making a toast and forgetting to recognize about half of the people around her while making this. To make matters somehow even worse, this very gathering was a bit of a surprise birthday celebration for Caroline, who had one of the most sentimental moments of the whole season with Lauren just a matter of minutes earlier. Let’s just say that things are going to get interesting for these ladies leading up to the finale…
