    Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: "If Therapy Doesn't Work, I Want My Money Back!"

    RHONJ BRAVO

    They say blood is thicker than water, but there must be something in the water in Franklin Lakes if Teresa Guidice and Joe Gorga have to go see a therapist!  

    This week on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies emphasize the importance of family. Whether it is a trip to the therapist, or a night out at the local lesbian bar, these ladies will do whatever it takes to live up to their housewife duties. 

    How these women manage to fit in all of these strenuous activities after taking the kids to soccer practice is a mystery to us.

    It's all in a day's work.

    Despite the recent bankruptcy to hit the Guidices, the family finds a way to remodel their home...all it takes is dressing up their children in matching overalls—so on trend right now, by the way—and making some homemade stucco and voilà! That's one way to get the family together for some quality bonding time.

    While Teresa spends more time with her own family to avoid more drama with her gal pals, she apparently couldn't hold them off for long. Rosie Pierri stops by to have a heart-to-heart talk and tries to clear her sister, Kathy Walkie's name from the slander being written in the tabloids.

    Teresa reminds Rosie of how poorly Kathy used to treat her when they were kids because she was a lesbian. Later at their family dinner, their mother opens up to her family and reveals a deep secret from her childhood. It is obvious that Rosie has put the past behind her and is much closer with her sister.

    Kathy decides to get Rosie back into the social scene by taking her to a gay bar to help her sister meet someone. The girls get a little wild and even successfully pick up a blonde at the bar.

    As one sibling relationship gets stronger, another gets tested. Joe and Teresa meet at the doctor's office and seem cordial. Joe tells his sister she looks sexy. So normal. They go into the office one at a time to explain their own perspectives.

    Teresa says she feels as though she is not close with her brother anymore since he started dating Melissa. Jealous much?

    Joe explains that Teresa became competitive with his wife Melissa once he started dating her. He points out that she physically attacked Melissa and her husband constantly belittles Joe. All he wants is love and respect. Is that too much to ask, or what?

    The doctor prescribes them more time together with their families (but not to get too close). Maybe it's because he could sense Teresa's "sensitive personality."

    So what is going to happen when the whole crew sets out on their road trip to Napa Valley? Do you think these crazy kids will be able to save the drama for their mama? Sound off in the comments!
