Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 Episode 15 Finale Recap: Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga officially become an unchosen family
After a long 14 episodes Real housewives from New Jersey Finally, the family fight between them occurred Teresa Giudice And Joe Gorga. The trigger was a cheating rumor by Melissa Gorga and Luis Ruelas’ personal Margaret Joseph-style arsenal. Worse, all the chaos went down just days before Tre and Luis’ wedding.
The season 13 finale of RHONJ took place at Dolores Catania’s prohibition party. Thankfully, there was enough drama with the Gorga family to distract us from having to deal with yet another 1920s-style party at Real Housewives. Here are the five key takeaways from Episode 15 of RHONJ Season 13, aptly titled Flappers of Fury.
Dolores’ drunk recipe for disaster
While the RHONJ episode began with a dramatic flash forward, most of it took place at Paul Connell’s house. He and Dolores throw a party that will last forever, even though it’s remembered for the wrong reasons. The party features Irish dancers, Irish food and lots of drinking. In retrospect, the constant shots of Irish whiskey probably weren’t the best fuel for the impending collapse.
Most notably, Joe Gorga drank shots and drank Guinness before his sister showed up to the party. When they actually showed up, Tarzan was even more upset than usual because Luis disrespectfully greeted him upon entering the party. The fact that Luis and Tre were late and significantly more sober than their co-stars only heightened the tension. Well, maybe Luis’ red face and big eyes had more to do with it.
Danielle eventually becomes a rat herself
Danielle Cabral showed up to the party convinced she had to tell Melissa about the cheating rumor being planted by the infamous Laura Marasca Jensen, Marge’s ex-girlfriend. Now, some People thought Danielle was instigated by some of the more experienced cast, but she seemed guilty. At the party, Danielle took Melissa aside and told her about the rumor that she was spotted making out with another man. Danielle made sure to blame Laura and Margaret as Jennifer Aydin begged her friend not to drop the bombshell at the party. Melissa didn’t care about semantics—she was blindsided by anger.
Melissa explained that Joe G. learned the rumor from Luis and Tre six months earlier without Melissa’s knowledge. Joey apparently told his wife, who was upset but didn’t want to start a fight so close to Tre’s big day. Melissa was even more upset that everything only came to light three days before the wedding. “And look what happens at the end? Your servant makes me look bad in front of everyone,” Melissa said, referring to Teresa. Danielle engaged in conversation with Melissa and was willing to take the blame for being the messenger, but clearly had no idea how much spite she would ignite by doing so. Or if you ask Melissa, she did it because Tre told her to.
Melissa’s misguided anger
Melissa’s resulting anger has one target: Teresa. She believed it was just another step in Tre’s long history of spreading rumors to ruin her brother’s marriage. Flashback to Strippergate. When she spotted Teresa and Luis at the party, she called them “losers” while forming an “L” with her fingers on her forehead. When Teresa found out the root of Melissa’s anger, a verbal argument ensued. Both exchanged angry remarks at each other. Tre tried to run away from her SIL while MelGo marched on screaming in her face.
In general, Melissa’s reaction to all the rumor bombing was weird. She and Joe had an unnatural tendency to laugh about it and get off track at the same time. I still have a lot more gaps to fill, but we have the reunion for that. Melissa was so upset with Jennifer, Teresa and Danielle but didn’t take a second to bring up the Margaret of it all. Did Margaret know about Melissa’s rumor before it became public? Or did these two friends have to do some logistics behind the scenes since Laura apparently knew the names, dates and locations of the affair, according to Jennifer Aydin? “Why is she the fucking queen of Captain America? And the shit gets distracted from her,” Danielle said. And now we’ve said it.
Melissa’s anger was justified, of course, but it just seemed like we didn’t get the full story. It made sense, too, when Tre explained that she didn’t want anyone to hear about the rumor because she knew she would end up being blamed for it. “I didn’t want to say anything because I was afraid they would ruin my wedding,” Teresa said of the rumor. History actually repeats itself.
Luis has his own arsenal
As the argument between Tre and Melissa continued, Luis and Joe apparently interfered. At one point, he looked eerily at the camera with his terrifying eyes, pointed, and said, “I’m a winner. She wins.” Mom pick me up, I’m scared. Luis then clapped back at Melissa, which is a surefire way to upset Tarzan.
Joe and Luis turned on each other in a way that almost resembled baptism. Sure, they didn’t shake hands, but that was probably just because an army of their macho male friends were holding them back. Everyone left the party unscathed but emotionally drained. Well, except for Danielle. She slapped her bum on the way out, too relieved that the secret was no longer on her shoulders.
The day after Dolores’ party, everyone had a lot to unpack. Tre had invited her faithful bridesmaids Jennifer and Dolo to talk about the whole ordeal. During the fight the night before, Luis brought up a man named Bo Dietl. The next day he told the ladies that this man was a private investigator who was his friend and had brought him information on everyone in the group. As expected, Tre claimed to know nothing about Luis’ arsenal, but maybe he’s the one the RHONJ girls should turn their attention to. Again, Luis is the warning sign that everyone should be concerned about.
Melissa and Tre run to the end
Melissa also had a lot to say the next day. She elaborated on why she believed Tre was trying to destroy their marriage. She claimed that Luis was spreading the idea that MelGo was a scammer and claimed that there were multiple men. To be clear, Luis, Tre, and Joe all announced that it was Luis who spoke about Melissa’s cheating. That didn’t stop MelGo from blaming her sister-in-law for everything. One of the biggest bombshells happened when Joe revealed the extent of Tre’s family trying to get inside his head. Apparently, Gia Giudice called him to talk about his marriage. He claimed Gia said, “We just think there’s a better way to do it,” which sounds absurd. What happened to not talking about the kids? But if that’s true, Gia is also trying to be her own little stirrer behind the scenes. It’s all so gross.
MelGo told Dolores over the phone that she and Joe had no plans to go to Tre’s wedding. “How can I go and celebrate someone else’s marriage when it’s the people who are constantly trying to destroy mine?” MelGo said. May I say that she implemented her rehearsed text perfectly?
Dolores was the one who passed the message to Tre. The Real Housewives of New Jersey OG were relieved to once again eradicate cancer in their family. “I can’t imagine my only sibling not coming to my wedding,” Dolores said. “I actually feel a little sick saying that.” The sad part is that Dolores was the one who seemed to have hurt the whole thing the most. That’s probably because she’s watched this family dissolve for years, and this time it feels permanent. What a strange transition to Tre and Luis’ big wedding anniversary.
“Real Housewives of New Jersey” continues Tuesdays at 9/8 p.m. on Bravo, with “Teresa Gets Married” airing May 23 before the reunion.
