The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap – That Napoleon Thing

This week on Real Housewives of New Jersey, will the two Joes finally fight?  Will there be more non-working out scenes at the same gym?  Will Theresa make up any new nonsense words?

Let’s find out shall we?!

The show opens with Joey and Melissa going over Joey’s fight at the gym with Theresa, and Joey calls her out for attacking Theresa on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Theresa and her Joe talk about the fight from her perspective. Her husband tries to insult Joey by saying “he’s got that Napoleon thing.”  Which, of course, Theresa doesn’t understand and responds with, “You mean bipolar?”

Watching Joe trying to describe who Napoleon was and what “that Napoleon thing” means is priceless.  Real brain food here, guys.

Later on, Kathy and her husband Rich get into it over the packaging for her new cannoli business.  He proves his complete respect for her by telling the camera he has to help her with this business because, “I married a housewife, not an entrepreneur.”  Ouch.

And then a bunch of pointless talking about drama scenes.  I’ll sum them up for you:  blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.

No way will I make fun of the scenes of Jacqueline working with her autistic son though.  That stuff is heartbreaking and makes me wish she would get off this crazy show.

Caroline’s scenes are mostly of her kids telling her they don’t want to ever get married and her husband not enjoying their new apartment.

To make up with his wife later in the episode, Rich takes Kathy to a kitchen he has rented so she can work on her dessert business – out of the house and away from him.

Instead of appeasing her, Kathy panics and gets upset that he rented it without letting her even have a vote.  They get into it later and Kathy breaks down to the camera trying to talk about it, while Rich tells the camera that he is basically over it.  Not looking good, kids.

Kathy’s sister calls Theresa and asks to meet up, hoping to bury the “I threatened to kill you at last year’s reunion” hatchet.

It (surprisingly?) does not go well.  Screaming, high pitched squeaking and table punching ensues.  After a shout fest, they feel better apparently, so they agree to go to a weekend-long holistic camp as a family.  That should be healthy and drama free, right?

Next week, Melissa confronts Kim D. over rumors she’s been spreading and Theresa tries to get her family to come to the retreat despite all their drama.

See you guys then!
