A fiery fight turned into an awkward confrontation on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“I wanted you to meet me so I could talk to you because all of this needs to be settled out,” Jackie said. “I think that what you did to me at Margaret’s house is not excusable. I don’t get spoken to like that. I am a grown woman. I have a lot of self-respect. I was like ‘what the f**k.’”
But Teresa wasn’t buying her half-apology.
“Because listen, you came at me first,” the mom-of-four replied, later telling the cameras: “Is she being delusional? I didn’t start with her.”
“Everyone knows my situation, and no one would say that to my face,” Teresa told Jackie.
“But is that the way you argue with people?” Jackie asked.
“If they piss me of, yeah,” Teresa said.
“This is the problem because if you didn’t’ intend to be disrespectful by screaming in my face… why would you say ‘You’ve been her for five minutes, if you want to make it to 10 minutes, I’d watch your mouth,’ which to me sounded like a threat?” Jackie pressed.
“Well it’s not a threat. I felt like you were being insensitive that’s not something you should bring up,” Teresa said.
Still, Jackie tried to make her pal understand that she meant no harm.
“I was explaining that you are such a strong woman — that if a woman was capable of controlling her husband’s actions, there is no way you would’ve let that happen,” Jackie said.
“It didn’t come off that way,” Teresa doubled down.
“Can you just agree that I disrespected you, but you also disrespected me?” Jackie said.
“But if you didn’t make that comment… you should’ve just used a different analogy,” Teresa insisted.
Jackie reiterated her past to Teresa and admitted that she went through a similar situation with her own family.
“Maybe in my view point it would’ve been a little bit different, because my parents had their own issues with the IRS and my dad went away for six months. Both of my parents were on house arrest. Like when my mom had an ankle bracelet on, like we just laughed about it,” she said.
But Teresa was not impressed by her little story.
“I’m living it right now,” Teresa persisted. “My kids live with it every day and it really hurts them that our father is not here.”
In response, Jackie finally gave in.
“I did not meant to hurt you,” Jackie replied. “For that I am sorry. We may have a beef again in the future, because we are both very strong type A women. But I will never bring up that situation again.”
“Believe me I’ve gotten more namaste. I used to be a little more crazier. So that was calm for me when I’m pissed!” Teresa said as the two eventually laughed it off.
“I hear what she is saying, but this is strike two for Jackie,” Teresa told the cameras. “I’ll give her a second chance for now, and we will see how this game is going to play out.”
