In this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, the girls returned from their trip to Milan and were settling back into their lives at home.
“Danielle and I have gotten to a good place but it is hard to know her children are still hurting,” Giudice revealed.
Staub told Giudice that her youngest daughter was ready to talk.
“When I first heard you were going to yoga together, I called her and I flipped out on her,“ Staub’s youngest daughter, Jillian, said while confronting Giudice. “I was like you’re Staub getting yourself into all of this stuff again that we spent so many years getting out of.”
“It’s a lot to deal with,” Jillian, 19, admitted. “I still get it to these days. I get random messages that say ‘I’m just like my mother’ — calling me names that I prefer not to use. From the whole flipping the table and everything that happened, it kind of cascaded into other things. People even when I was in elementary school would say stuff to me.”
Staub added that they were this close to moving because of her children getting bullied.
Hearing this, Giudice broke down and apologized profusely.
“I have daughters too, thats why I would never.. like my little one is 7 so I would never want to hurt you in any way,” Giudice said apologetically. “I don’t why things happen in life. If I could take it back I would. Sometimes in the heat of the moment you don’t think. But the words that came out of my mouth, the actions were my doing — I take full responsibility for what happened and I’m truly sorry.”
Jillian accepted Giudice’s apology but said that her older sister Christine was “not at that place yet.”
“I feel horrible,” Giudice admitted. “I didn’t know that I caused Danielle and her daughters all this hurt all this time. But I’m glad she voiced how she felt to me and I want to make it better.”
Meanwhile, Siggy Flicker went to her father to get help fighting her battles.
A sulky Flicker was still holding a grudge over Margaret Josephs for comments she made at a dinner. When she asked her dad for advice he told her to simply not to get “into conversations with her.”
Flicker admitted she may have taken the situation way too far.
Later, when it came time for Joe Gorga and Giudice’s restaurant opening in memory of their late mother, Antonia, things became very awkward. Siggy avoided both Josephs and her mother, Margaret Sr.
Staub attempted to go over to Flicker and introduce her to Josephs and her mother, but she refused and said she was going to go get fresh air.
“I’m not going to go and be ambushed once again,” Flicker justified. “This Sig ain’t stupid.”
A shocked Margaret Sr. remarked that Flicker's behavior was "rude."
In the season finale of RHONJ, Giudice takes her children to visit her husband Joe in jail, while Josephs get ready to throw her big 50th birthday bash. And yes, Flicker was invited!
