Grab your business suit and briefcase, because It’s trial time in New Jersey.

In this episode, Teresa G. deals with her trial on charges of mortgage fraud. Prior to the trial, we see her praying for God’s protection. After the trial, her attorney makes a statement on behalf of her that she pleads guilty. There are more technical issues at hand with the trial, but it’s too complicated.

Dina gathers the girls to help her plan an event for her charity, Project Ladybug, that raises money for children with cancer. Dina has all the ladies over at her house to brainstorm ideas. After the brainstorm, Dina announces that she thinks it would be a good idea for them all to go on vacation to Florida. If you are a housewife follower like me, you know that nothing but drama happens when housewives take trips together.

Melissa constantly states how worried she is for Teresa G. and how she wants her to know she is there for her. She invites Dina to work out with her, where they discuss Teresa G.’s situation.

Dear lord, is Amber a drama queen! Amber reads an article regarding rumors about Teresa G. She starts crying about it, then calls her. Yes, she is crying on the phone to Teresa G about Teresa G.’s problems. Is Teresa G. crying, you ask? Nope. Ugh.

In her side interview, Amber expresses sympathy towards Teresa G., because she went through similar issues with her cancer. She even says the only difference between her and Teresa G. is that you can die from cancer and can’t from going to jail. Yes, this girl is crazy.

While at Dina’s house for Project Ladybug, Amber pulls Teresa G aside and they discuss whether or not to bring up the rumor of Rino cheating on other Teresa with her mom. They decide not to tell anyone about it. Well, besides the cameraman. This is not going to end well.

The day of Teresa G’s trial, the other Teresa asks Rino if he saw the trial footage, then asks what Teresa G. was wearing. So typical. Rino emphasizes to her that she shouldn’t put pressure on Teresa G. to talk about her situation, but should let her vent about it when or if she wants to.

The twins shovel snow and have Bobby come over to help. Bobby says Amber texted him trying to be friends again. Nicole and Bobby just aren’t buying it. Also, in a side interview, Jim says how Bobby is seeing other girls and can’t wait for Nicole to realize it. So much drama.

The preview for the rest of the season looks so exciting! Jacqueline Laurita comes back with the possibility of she and Teresa rekindling their friendship. But most importantly, I am excited for this trip to Florida.
