Then she informs us that she holds Ter responsible for the pain in her life. And that with Dina, she has to give it time to let the smoke clear. I’m sorry, what does this have to do with Ter now? Finally, she confesses that she hopes she didn’t “rustle things up too much” on her show, and signs off. Yeah, I don’t think your two phone calls exactly blew up Sirius phone tree.
Over at the Fabulini party, there’s a red carpet and a fat gay guy yelling “Fabulini!” Ter is resplendent in pink fur. Her face on the step and repeat looks like it was printed with a dot matrix printer. Nothing but the best for the RHONJ.
She informs us that Jacquee was not invited, because they’re in a different place now. Caro also was not invited to the party, on account of the fact that she “hurted” Ter. You can’t stab someone and then bring them back to life, she explains to us.
It’s just me not holding a grudge. Bitch.
And then – it’s time to invoke Dina! She prances up in her black outfit with her gay entourage…and promptly eats it on the red carpet. She knocks over the dot matrix picture of Teresa. I’d like to believe it was intentional. Then she’s carrying on about a swollen ankle. It’s some encore entrance, let me tell you.
Dina walks in the room and declares the room “pretty” and Teresa “sparkly”. Jacquee pipes in to say that she thinks it’s nice that Dina went to support Ter. Doesn’t know where Dina was at her nephew’s birthday party or at holidays, but interesting that just when the drama is heightening between Caro and Ter…there’s Dina.
For her part, Ter says that true friends support her and don’t get jealous, and that Dina will always be there. She fills Dina in on the RV trip – she had the best time with her brother and Mel, but then all hell broke loose over the joke from THE COOKBOOK.
She repeats it to Dina, who confirms – having nothing to do with her own current blood feud with Caro – that Caro definitely should not have been offended by THE COOKBOOK.
And there’s Caro again, reminding us that Ter has an agenda to drive a wedge between Caro and her family. I’m sorry, I just don’t feel like taking your word for it, lady. What else ya got?
Then there’s the oft-previewed, “Blood is thicker than water” comment from Ter, followed by Dina’s reply that “unfortunately, not always”. There’s talk of people getting things in their head, and people putting things in people’s heads and how THE COOKBOOK is just this barrel of laughs that everyone is taking far too seriously.
Ter and Dina make fun of Caro’s edict that she doesn’t want to be Ter’s friend anymore and complain that they feel like it’s grammar school. Ter also adds that Caro was mad about the stripper carwash remark, which Dina also – totally independently of her fight with Caro – thinks is stupid.
