Teresa and Jackie have battled it out over the last three seasons, but this season their feud reached a head after Teresa spread a seemingly false cheating rumor about Jackie’s husband, Evan Goldschneider. Then, as the two women sat down to chat about the messy situation, Jackie used a cringe-worthy analogy, stating she heard Gia Giudice, 20, was using “cocaine in the bathroom.”
Unfortunately, their issues didn’t stop there as they continued to trade jabs and Jackie brought up Teresa’s 11-month stay in a federal prison, which led to the Turning the Tables author calling her co-star a “nasty b*tch.”
Nevertheless, the pair seemingly made amends for a period of time after Teresa apologized to both Jackie and Evan for her part in spreading the cheating rumor, but their peace treaty apparently didn’t last long as they reportedly had an “explosive” fight at the reunion.
“Teresa and Jackie did not disappoint,” an insider told Page Six. “If Teresa and Jackie were the main event, the undercard fight was Margaret [Josephs] and Jennifer [Aydin]. There are a few surprises.”
As for Margaret and Jennifer, they’ve been at each other’s throats since Margaret called the mother-of-five a “sloppy drunk,” to which Jennifer hit back by shaming the Macbeth Collection founder for sleeping with her boss. Furthermore, Jennifer later went on to call Margaret “sl*tty” during an ugly Twitter war.
Though most Housewives say they typically need a few days to recover after an explosive reunion, Teresa snapped right back into mommy mode as she immediately traveled to Atlantic City following the stressful taping. She was reportedly spotted checking into Harrah’s Casino in full glam for her daughter Audriana’s dance competition.
Meanwhile, in other RHONJ reunion news, it seems the men were also at the taping and will likely weigh in with their own opinions. The “Househusbands” snapped a pic together, which has been re-shared by The Real Housewives Franchise on Instagram, and Teresa’s boyfriend, Luis Ruelas, was also in attendance.
Luis has yet to make his debut, but judging by the midseason trailer, viewers will meet him soon enough. Since he clearly didn’t play a big role in the season, it’s unclear what host Andy Cohen will ask Luis, but hopefully, Andy will inquire about his alleged playboy– sometimes violent – past.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 airs Wednesday nights on Bravo at 9/8c.
