But over at the men’s table, there are some new developments. “They write the bullshit, we make the money,” Brown Smurf is sharing. So you get paid, Chris Laurita confirms. Yes, but only by In Touch, Brown Smurf replies.
They ask Brown Smurf which magazine put the fake news of Ter having a baby boy on the cover. He claims he doesn’t know, so someone goes to their phone, searches for the cover on line and shoves it in the Brown Smurf’s face to prove it was In Touch. Proving what now again? But Chris Laurita sits there smugly, like he’s solved the mystery of the universe.
He goes on to say that Ter likes these stories cause she needs attention. Oh, and also cause she needs money, he adds. Then he claims that Jacquee was offered $50,000 to tell her side of the Teresa story, but she refused. I don’t think I believe that one.
Back at the chicken coop, Caro is now telling Teresa she has insulted and disrespected her time and time again. She fails to offer any proof, but I guess as long as you’re not lying prostate at the alter of Caroline Manzo, you’re clearly a horrible person. No further evidence required.
Ter continues to deny, deny, deny. Caro tries to force her to admit she was trying to hurt her in THE COOKBOOK. Mel says that Ter has done things wrong, but there’s no way she’s turning her back on her sister-in-law. Especially considering Caroline is “done”. Caro says that Ter should have had the courtesy to call her about THE COOKBOOK.
Then it turns into an argument about Jacquee, who Ter is accused of manipulating or something like that. Back and forth they go on the topic of Jacquee. And as for Jacquee?
Caro aggressively threatens to ask her about it all “when she wakes up!”. Ter recognizes that she’s fake sleeping, and takes that to mean that she’s on Ter’s side, she just doesn’t want to go against Caro publicly. Sounds logical to me. Of course it could just be her daily cocktail of wine and pills. That stuff makes you kinda sleepy too.
Caro is still going on about how Ter dragged her into her family battles. How Ter didn’t want her to be friends with Kat and Mel, which is true. Which now that Ter is on the reunion bus tour, she naturally denies. “Backstabbing…wow,” says Ter. Oh, come on now. We all saw you telling Caro to stay away from Mel and Kat.
Ter also counters that Caro’s got enough problems in her own family. “I fixed things with my family,” says Ter. She admitted that she didn’t like her brother and didn’t want to fix things, says Caro. Well, yeah, but she also went to therapy. Did you drive her there at gunpoint? If not, then you can stop taking the credit for this, thanks.
