Teresa admitted to blaming her husband for making her miss out on time she could’ve spent with her mother, Antonia, before she died.
“The last time we did this ride, my mom was still here,” the star said while on her way to the prison. “The last time I was going to see Joe, I had to turn around because my mom went to the hospital. I did lose time with her and I feel like it’s his fault. It sucks. Life sucks. When he comes home things are going to be so different.”
“Talking to Joe today is not going to be easy — we only have a three-hour window to see him,” Giudice added. “I mean, I never want to bring serious stuff around the girls, because I know the girls love spending every minute with him. I just want our daughters to know that he is really sorry about letting them down, cause that’s what he did — he let us down.”
No cameras were allowed inside the prison. But when Teresa met up with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and brother Joe, she explained all that went down.
“I was nervous. I got emotional,” Teresa admitted to Melissa. “I said ‘I lost eleven-and-half months with my mom — not only did you do it to me, you did it to our daughters and why weren’t you on top of everything — I didn’t sign up for this.’”
Teresa then told Melissa that she demanded a verbal apology from her husband – which he eventually gave her.
“He said he was sorry and he wouldn’t let anything like this happen again,” Teresa revealed. “Then I started crying and then he started crying, and he hugged me, and the girls were crying.”
After what Teresa's brother called a "seven or eight month" period of her skipping prison visits to her husband, Melissa expressed her belief that the mom of four would divorce her longtime love for his crimes.
"I think she's going to walk," Melissa said solemnly.
In another wild scene, Siggy Flicker landed herself in the hospital and showed up late to nemesis Margaret Joseph’s 50th birthday party.
Flicker explained she had a hard fall down the stairs that caused her to injure an arm and a leg. The ladies questioned the timing — as it happened only moments before Margaret’s get-together!
“What are the chances Siggy lands in the hospital the night of Margaret’s party?” Danielle Staub asked, skeptically.
Siggy — getting word of the ladies questioning her absence — decided to go straight to the party from the hospital, dawning a cast on her arm and leg. Things didn’t end on a pretty note when she decided to confront Margaret.
“I got to admit it to you, I didn’t want to come,” Siggy told Margaret. “I was nervous, I was anxious.”
“I never called you and said I want to be friends. I don’t want to be friends,” Siggy added.
At that, a shocked Margaret decided to kick her out. “If you don’t want to be here, then just get the f**k out.”
While the rest of the ladies thought Siggy was acting irrationally, Teresa and Delores Catania stayed loyal to their pal and decide to leave with her.
Melissa and Danielle stayed behind to enjoy the rest of the party with Margaret. The ladies ended up divided, and the show closed on a sour note.
Stay tuned for next week’s episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey when the lady rivals reunite and the gloves come off!
