“I lose brain cells talking to you,” Jackie tells Teresa in the trailer. And Teresa fires back “That’s why you don’t even talk to your own sister, white trash b***h.”
Teresa also calls her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (who is best friends with Jackie) a “cold-hearted b***h.”
Jackie tells Teresa that she won’t win a war of words with her, and at that point, Teresa is ready to go to blows. She rips the cue cards out of Cohen’s hands, stands up, and looks ready to throw down.
Margaret Josephs recently told Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that the dynamics of the group have shifted, explaining that she and Melissa are very close. She says Melissa sticks up for what is right and sticking up for Jackie causes tension with Teresa.
At the reunion, Josephs also continued her feud with Jennifer Aydin, with Jennifer telling Margaret that she isn’t going to “feel pity for a woman who was a homewrecker.”

Cohen also asks Teresa about her future with Joe, who will be released from prison next month, but is facing deportation.
“So, what you’re saying is that you will go your separate ways?” he asks as Teresa starts to cry.
But, could the fight between Teresa and Melissa be fake? Reality Blurb is reporting that the fight at the reunion was staged, and the “sisters-in-law actually struggled to keep straight faces.”
According to an insider, Teresa and Melissa had to stop filming at one point because they were laughing. And, the source added that RHONJ executive producer Dorothy Toran met with each cast member individually to make sure everyone brought the drama and banned them from talking about the reunion taping ahead of it airing on Bravo.
