Kathy sympathizes with Teresa's struggles with Gia.

After last week’s episode, it’s amazing how we can take a few steps back and try to understand what was said and where we went wrong. We find it in our hearts to give it another try. That’s family for you.

I loved watching Richie and Joey at the gym. They were a great sounding board for each other. It was so cute to see these two flexing their muscles when we know they are just two softies! I thought Joey was wrong to tell Teresa to go f--- off. He let his frustration at not being able to get through to her get the best of him. However as you all saw, he felt bad too and wanted to make it right. I was so happy to see that he backed his regret up with a positive action and decided to send her a text in hopes of being able to move forward. He realized he was wrong and he accepted responsibility for his actions. He was remorseful and made a change.

By the way Joey, it’s OK that you have a hard time telling me you love me. I know you do and I love you too! xoxo

So everyone is getting ready for field day and Jacqueline and Lauren are headed out for some athletic wear. I couldn’t stop laughing when Jacqueline broke out with “more cushion for the pushin’.” I wish I had an aunt like Jacqueline. She can be so funny and silly, and she is a great support for Lauren while she’s struggling with her new diet. For anyone that’s ever been on a strict diet you know what it’s like. I’ve been on my fair share, and it really stinks. Being able to talk and joke about it is a saving grace.
