Real Housewives of New Jersey 5/30/11: The Giudice / Gorga Fight Continues

Is anyone else getting the hint that Joe Giudice is really the common denominator in a lot of the Giudice / Gorga family fights, not Teresa?

For example, after he saw Joe Gorga at the gym, he called Teresa, and quite venomously, let her know how he felt about her brother? Meanwhile, when Joe Gorga and Melissa discussed the Teresa situation yet again, Melissa actually supported fixing the family drama.

Kathy Wakile's attempt at reaching out to Caroline Manzo seemed a bit more than backhanded, and I was glad that Caroline reacted the way she did. If Kathy really wanted to make things better with Teresa, she may have had a chance through Caroline. However, it didn't work out that way. Kathy claims that she never meant to choose between Melissa and Teresa, and I do believe her, but once things got crazy she certainly did choose a side.

Teresa Giudice tried to write a letter to her brother to make things right, but she couldn't see beyond her issues with Melissa Gorga to say all of the things that she needed to say. Specifically, she needed to address her issues with Melissa and how she wants to make things better in that respect. That being said, I give Teresa credit for trying, and although we clearly know from news reports that things aren't better within the Giudice/Gorga family, at least she tried.

Jacqueline Laurita had some great points about Teresa and the letter - as they went to deliver it, Teresa noted that she wanted her brother to change and that she was ready to be confrontational. However, that was not an appropriate approach - she should have tried to be more open about it. When it came down to it, no one was home, so that was a non-issue, and Teresa left the note in the door.

I have to give Melissa Gorga credit for encouraging her husband Joe to read the letter and to talk to Teresa again. He was clearly hesitant, but Melissa was definitely doing the right thing because without her, Joe probably wouldn't have even entertained the idea.
