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."
