Everyone is still happy and peaceful together on Real Housewives of New Jersey! Gosh, it's weird, right? The focus of this episode was the allegation that Melissa Gorga cheated on her husband, and while I don't buy it, I do think that everyone's being weird about it. Here's what we learned.

OK! News: See the best tweets of the week, RHONJ style.

Seeing a bunch of Gorga-Giudice kids running around together is the happiest sight.

A motif of this season has been that every episode opens with the Gorga kids, and I for one am very happy about it. They are super cute.


Kathy Wakile's cannoli business is booming.

It was cool to see her yummy products on QVC. Now send some to the OK! offices, pretty please.

These Real Housewife husbands are pretty cute.

It was so funny watching all of them consider what would be the ideal present for Melissa Gorga's upcoming birthday. Chris Laurita continues to be my favorite, and of course he had the best suggestion—a spa weekend.

OK! News: Kathy Wakile shares how to have a perfect beach day.

The Manzo couple feels a little cold these days.

There is nothing scarier than the idea of Caroline Manzo being unhappy at home. I am officially Worried about her and Albert.


Lauren Manzo is in no rush to get married.

She and Vito are still going strong (Okay, no, awkward. They're going awkward), but with her makeup store Cafface going so well, Lauren is in no rush to get married. Also, she's only 24!

Watch: What will Chris and Albie Manzo do when they get sick of each other?

Everyone talking again means big, hilarious meals.

Yes, it's very nice that Teresa and Joe have patched up their relationship, for many healthy reasons. One of them is more scenes of Italians eating together, even if it's at a Middle Eastern themed restaurant.


Women are the worst.

Let me explain. Much of this episode just showcased a bunch of catty women being catty—talking in circles about lies, nonsense, rumors, and other assorted horror. It was hard to even keep up with, but you felt gross for even trying.

Watch: Why is Twitter making Caroline Manzo so emotional?

Milania Giudice needs a spin-off.

I know I argue for this every week, but c'mon. She already has her own products (Milania Haircare) and branding in place! Hers was the best segment of the whole episode.


Richie Wakile is ready to step out of Kathy's business.

How can someone be sick of the smell of lemon marscapone cream in their kitchen? Especially as a dude, who can eat whatever he wants! It seems like a good idea that Rich is ready to exit the cannoli biz. Kathy can spread her wings now!

Hair events call for gold sequins.

Did anyone else feel the need to hit Pinterest after this episode? I absolutely need a gold sequined dress.


Melissa is a big reader of body language.

She mentioned twice in this episode that she was reading Teresa's body language and could tell that her sis-in-law wasn't telling the truth. And I like she was right...

OK! News: Here's what we learned from the first chapter of Melissa's book!

Teresa was being a bit of a sketchball.

The last few minutes of this episode were weird. Why was T hovering over that interaction? Because she knew if she left, the women would all turn on her? Again I have to say: women. The worst!


Who do you think was lying in that final confrontation? Do you really think that Melissa cheated on Joe? Do you find everyone outside the main group to be super weird? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
