On Sunday night, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” somehow proved that they still had something left in the tank courtesy of a “lost footage” episode, which really consisted of material that was either not relevant enough to appear on the show the first time, or simply not interesting enough. We know that this probably not the sort of endorsement that the producers of the show are looking from when it comes to its viewers, but it’s pretty much the truth.
With that in mind, most of the footage that we saw here really was stuff that we could have otherwise done without, but there were a few interesting exceptions. First things first, we had claims from Jacqueline Laurita that Teresa Giudice was paid to publish an apology to her and the other ladies in the tabloids, and she had an interesting way of denying it … at least when it comes to the amount of money she was paid to deny it. Teresa then trashes Jacqueline for putting stories in the tabloids, though the most recent one was about her son having autism, and Jacqueline fires back that her old friend has not responded to any of her calls, texts, or voicemails.
In moving further along that subject, Jacqueline ended up ripping her sister-in-law Dina Manzo, saying that she has still not really come out in support of her and her son, and that the two really do not communicate in any way.
Ultimately, the message form this episode is really quite simple: everyone still hates each other, and they are probably going to keep fighting about something until the end of time. We’re great with some drama, but at this point the show has tipped the scales so much that no one is having any fun at all anymore.
