Burning Questions

Dr. V talks about what it was like to walk into the middle of the RHONJ drama.

Bravotv.com: Why was it important for Joe and Teresa to talk one on one?

Dr. V: Because until they escaped all the B.S. and noise created by everyone else, there was no space for the two of them to just cool down, clear their minds, and really remember who they are as brother and sister. Our siblings are the only other people in the world who truly know how crazy our parents are -- it's important to keep that relationship healthy...if you can.

Bravotv.com: What was it like when you brought Teresa and Joe together? What do you think caused the breakthrough and tears?

Dr. V: I always feel like when my work goes best, I'm hardly doing anything. Joe and Teresa did the work to get to that breakthrough, all I did was clear out the crazy (for now). I think because they were able to rise above all this rotten crap that's been really hurting them both and the whole family along with them, they were able to look at one another and remember "Oh, yeah. I love you, ya big lug."
