Garden Statements's Associate Producer doesn't blame the medium for having a little stage fright at first.

Ohmmm! The Jersey 'Wives opened their third eyes and discovered that the Arizona "spa" they flew to for Melissa's birthday was more like another healing retreat than they may have bargained for. But surely this group won't have any problem enjoying quiet reflection, right?

OK, perhaps not.

As everyone got prepped and packed for the big trip (not yet quite aware of the zen-sational fun that awaited them), Teresa made sure to pack plenty of new and dazzling bikinis with the help of her girls.

Clearly they're more in favor of a less sparkly, less chuckalina-focused look. (But Teresa's no stranger to a skimpy suit as our Before They were Housewives gallery proves.)

Once they arrived (or at least once the Gorgas, Wakiles, and Giudices arrived), they were greeted with smoothies and silence.

Not exactly this group's forte.
