‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ preview: Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita’s new conflicts

Get ready -The drama never stops on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” even when you start to think that some members of this dysfunctional family are starting to settle down a little bit, and the world is returning to normal (at least for other people). One such example of this? When Joe Gorga learns from Teresa Giudice’s daughter Gia (as referenced deeper in the sneak peek here) that the incident at the christening is still something that continues to stick in her mind.

This and some other examples of the family conflict are fleshed out a little bit more in the video below, as working through some “issues” ends up causing more. For one, impressionable children have somehow formed an opinion that Melissa Gorga was actually a stripper at one point, and she has to sit there and not blow her top over it, even if we know that she wants to given how hard she fought about these allegations last year.

Also, we’re on tap for more heart-to-hearts between Teresa and her former friend Jacqueline Laurita, who have enough issues between the two of them to make a any housewife shake their head at. We don’t expect anything be worked out between these two over the course of the episode. Heck, we’d be surprised if they ever do at this point. We’ve really learned that in some situations when it comes to this, it’s better to set your expectations low, and then become pleasantly surprised later if something good actually comes out of it.

Of course, we’re always keen to hear your thoughts on the story below! If you want to see our archive of videos and episode reviews for the show, you can do so over at the link here.
