It's not as though there weren't poignant or funny moments. Montages of the Manzo boys doing there thing or other RHONJ kids will melt your heart. There was a pretty frank discussion about Joe Giudice's phone call, and he sat by Teresa's side hand-in-hand openly fielding questions about it. And yes, Andy even did his trademark shoe contest, which we'll reveal closer to the actual reunion.
As for the aforementioned 7:45 turning point of the night -- that's when the husbands took the stage. (Kathy Wakile sent us the pic to the right of Rich Wakile, Chris Laurita and Joe Gorga in the moments before coming on set) Anyone who watches the show could predict that Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice would likely butt heads. It's just kind of what they do. Well, they did. It wasn't pretty, but as you've seen in the past on Jersey, even when there's massive blowouts that cause major rifts, the old adage of "family is the most important thing" tends to sway things back to a better place. Here's hoping that can happen.
To quote Melissa's Twitter once again, because it perfectly sums up this impending reunion: "It's like nothing you've ever seen before."
