It wasn't only sprinkle cookies that made a splash on last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Viewers also witnessed a moment in which Teresa Giudice's dad, who's lovingly known as "Nonno," comes into the kitchen on Easter morning and opens the fridge. Is he looking for orange juice? Coffee creamer? Nope! Instead, the family patriarch was looking for a swig of something a little spicier: Hot sauce. Right out of the bottle.
Fans definitely noticed this unusual move, and comments started flying shortly after the episode aired. On Twitter, one RHONJ fan joked, "No wonder Nonno has such a raspy voice." However, another viewer was quick to opine, "That's good stuff. Pepper is actually really good for you."
Is it though? While hot sauce — in our humble opinion — tastes great on just about anything, it may not be the best thing to drink if you're looking to avoid a sore throat. But there are also those out there who think eating a bit of hot sauce can help reduce wheezing. And as we saw, Nonno was having a bit of trouble with his breathing that day. But whatever the reason for Giacinto's hot-sauce swig, it was a holiday. Let the man live a little.
