On the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night, viewers were finally able to see the wives' reaction to the recent prison sentencing of Teresa Giudice and husband Joe on fraud charges.
"That's why your [family's] getting destroyed now," said Teresa Aprea, who was still angry at Giudice for spreading the rumor that her husband, Rino, slept with her mother. "Karma's a bitch. Clink, clink," she continued, mimicking the sound of handcuffs.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey went in search of alligators as part of their girls' trip to Florida on Sunday night, but Amber Marchese's husband, Jim, had the biggest bite of them all.
"Better watch out for the gators," Kathy Wakile wisely told her sister, Rosie Pierri, as she showed her the new house she was building. "And I'm not even talkin' about the ones in the Everglades."
"Don't you sing or something?" Rosie asked, looking directly at Kevin Jonas, who co-owns a construction company and is helping to build the Wakile family's new home.

Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey featured the return of former housewife Jacqueline Laurita, who emotionally admitted to reaching out twice to her BFF-turned-enemy Teresa Giudice. But, she said she received little response in return.
"You are weighing heavily on my mind," said Laurita, reading from one of two lengthy texts she had sent Giudice to former housewife Kathy Wakile. "You were like a sister to me … I wish I could be there to hug you."

Things got real for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night.
Breast cancer survivor Amber Marchese received stressful news after going to see her doctor for her five-year checkup.
"This is always a time of stress … you always fear the worst," Marchese said at church during Lent before her tests. "I'm always praying I'm healthy and have a long life with my children."
However, "the tests were inconclusive," an emotional Marchese told her husband after her doctor called about her bloodwork. "He wanted me to return for more testing … that's never happened. If I have a relapse, it doesn't look so good. You know that."

There was less screaming than usual but a lot more tears as part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion focused on Teresa Giudice's legal troubles.
Teresa and her husband, Joe, are facing the possibility of 50 years behind bars for multiple counts of fraud, and it's clearly weighing heavily on the mother of four. "Of course this bothers me. I'm human. There's a lot of nights I cry myself to sleep," the 41-year-old admitted. "I'm worried for my family. If I fall apart, the rest of my family's gonna fall apart … I don't want them to feel any pain … I'm just like every other mom."
"I don't believe in karma. I’m Catholic. I don't know why this came to us," she continued. "The best thing you can do is learn from it … It's in God's hands."

Fraud. Fights. Facelifts. Infidelity. And that was just part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion on Sunday night.
Host Andy Cohen kicked things off by asking Teresa Giudice, 41, if the other housewives – Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile – had been supportive since learning that she and husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, could face 50 years in prison after being charged in a 39-count fraud indictment.
"They all reached out to me," the mother of four revealed. "It's touching."
