How long do new beginnings last? From the looks of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, it could take just three episodes for the new beginnings to be new endings. After getting out of prison, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita, formerly known as Lucy and Ethel back when they were friends, decided to start again. That included two outings, Dolores Catania‘s birthday party and Melissa Gorga‘s boutique opening, and then a home visit.
On the next episode of RHONJ, Teresa and Joe Giudice head to the Laurita’s pad for some catching up, but it doesn’t look like the revived friendship stays on course.
“Any toxic people, I want to keep them away,” Teresa tells Jacqueline in the preview that aired on Watch What Happens Live. “The last time I was here, you attacked me on your porch.”
Jacqueline calmly says she didn’t attack her, but Teresa maintains she felt ambushed at the time. You recall the moment, it was the prolonged porch conversation that Caroline Manzo eventually crashed and asked why there was yelling.

Teresa said the articles weren’t true.
“We wouldn’t file fraudulent bankruptcy like you did,” Jacqueline says.
“See, that’s a f—king low blow,” Teresa replies.
And it only gets worse from there it looks like.
“She has not changed,” Jacqueline says in a confessional. Dolores sort of backed her up on WWHL when a caller asked if she thinks Teresa has changed. “I don’t think people change. I don’t feel she had to change. I think she’s calmed down, her temper’s under control and I think it takes her a lot more to get mad. I don’t think she’s changed, we are who we are,” she said.
