Breaking down Teresa, Kathy, Caroline and Melissa's posts about Lake George.

Jul 24, 2013 - The Dish

Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey was one of the most intense ones of the season—from Teresa's emotional breakdown with her brother Joe Gorga to the violent fight between Gorga and his brother-in-law Joe Giudice.

How did the stars react to reliving the retreat at Lake George? Here are are the five most revelatory points from their most recent blog posts.

Kathy Went to the Retreat With an Open Mind

Though she was apprehensive at first, Kathy Wakile says she willingly participated in the exercises to help mend the Gorga-Giudice rift. "When the fight broke out, we all did what we could do to break the fight up!" she writes. "Even though I made a joke about my nose job, I did still attempt to help rather than run in the opposite direction."

Melissa Has Fighting Words for Teresa

Teresa Giudice has revealed she has potentially damning information about Melissa, which she has yet to reveal. And Melissa is ready to call her bluff. "Teresa can threaten me all she likes," she writes. "All day long, or all night in the hot tub. In fact, I beg her to write in her blog what she 'has.' What lie is up her sleeve? I’m dying to know. Do share with us all, Teresa. It’s been open season on me for a while. You might as well bring it out. I’ve been called everything under the sun. What else you got? I can’t wait to hear directly from you, not others."

Joe Called His Sister Teresa "Scum," But She Can't Hate Him

When Joe Gorga hurled an insult at his sister, it broke Teresa's heart, she says. Still, she has had a hard time treating him with similar ire. "[His insult was] confusing and hurtful and it breaks my heart," she writes. "But still, I can’t hate him. I’ve never hated him. I don’t know why he has so much hate inside him."

Teresa Didn't Run From the Fight Because She Was Scared

"I did run to get security to break it up, but I got back to the room before they did," she writes. "And I broke up the fight right away. How is that? There were 4 people there trying to “break it up” but only I could do it? Seems to me they weren’t really trying to break it up, they were also attacking my husband. Poor guy!"

Caroline Is a Modest Housewife!

She wasn't thrilled to see how she looked when Teresa called her on the phone, asking for her to come to Lake George. "Just as a reminder to myself, always take time to put make-up on—what a mess!" she writes. Sorry, but we have to respectfully disagree!
