- Previously on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey"...
- Guys ready to eat jerk chicken and say "yeah, mon"?
- All right, give a kiss. Kiss him back, kiss him back!
- Danielle, she was with Marty.
They had sex.
- But isn't she engaged to somebody else?
- Two weeks after the ink was drying on her divorce papers,
Danielle posts that she's engaged to this guy Oliver,
who's a very rich guy.
- David here?
- David couldn't make it, actually.
- Dolores says she's not gonna move in the house
unless she has a commitment.
Do you see her moving in or not?
- I got some bad news.
Joe's appeal got denied.
- So, what's his percentage of coming home?
50? 30? 10%?
- Given what we learned this morning,
- Oh, my God.
- If you can't take the truth...
- As I always say...
Plastic makes perfect.
- Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I don't think I look 40 at all.
- Don't let the minivan fool you.
This mom won't roll over for anyone.
- Behind every strong man is a stronger Jersey girl.
- If you rub me the wrong way...
There'll be no more namaste.
- Mom. - Gino, I'm making dinner.
Please don't eat any junk. - Why?
- I'm making you a steak. - I swear, I'll eat my steak.
- Oh, my God.
- Hey. - Hi, Joe.
- Some bad news. - What?
- I just got back from Teresa's house.
Joe got denied his appeal.
- Holy sh--.
Are you kidding me?
- So, basically, he can appeal it one more time,
but it doesn't look good.
- Do the kids know?
- Well, Gabriella and Gia know,
but she doesn't want to tell Milania and Audriana.
She thinks they're too young.
- I don't agree with that.
I mean, they're gonna read it on social media.
They're gonna be at school, someone's gonna tell them.
I mean, that's insane.
- I tried to explain that to her.
- I didn't tell Milania.
- Well, you better sit and tell her.
Don't let her hear it from somebody else.
In her mind, she's doing the right thing.
- Oh, my God, it smells like ----ing dirty ass,
with these ----ing dogs.
Oh, my God, it's horrible.
- Well, Frankie didn't take the garbage out.
The fish went bad, and the dogs ate it.
- That's awesome.
Leave the window open a little, cracked a little bit?
- I would if I were you.
Do I smell like fish? I'm gonna vomit.
- It's no different from any other smells
I smelled on you before. - Shut up, Frank.
I'm the cleanest girl you know. - That's true.
- That's not saying much either.
- Welcome to Lighting Expo. My name is Joe.
I'll be glad to help you. - Hey, Joe, I'm Frank.
- Nice to meet you, Frank. - Hi, I'm Dolores.
- Nice to meet you, Dolores. - Nice to meet you.
- Dolores is building a house for her and her boyfriend.
- I have a picture that I can show you of it.
- Excellent, excellent.
- We need a lot of lighting for the outside.
- Okay. Okay. - You know.
- I can give you some ideas if you like.
- Sounds good.
- Let me show you this one right over here.
- It's too cold to me.
I wanted something more-- like, I like the round.
- Those are very popular too.
- Just to let you know, on the front of her house,
she has a big double door, all right?
- So you want to show big.
- On each side of the double door.
- Yeah. These are nice size for the front.
It's got four bulbs.
Light-wise, it'll give you plenty of light.
- See, I like this better.
- Joe, I like that one better too,
I'll be honest with you.
- I like that better.
There's a lot of really nice choices here.
Thank you, we're gonna look around a bit
and not drive you crazy. - Joe, thank you, man.
- My pleasure.
- These teardrop lamps, I love them.
- Yep. - Love.
I got a text. Oh, my God.
Joe's appeal got denied.
- Are you serious? - Yeah.
Somebody sent me the article.
It says, "Joe Giudice's Deportation Appeal
Denied by ICE."
- Oh, my God.
- I'm sick for her.
This is her second appeal.
She's got one more.
How much is each appeal?
- Oh, my God, it's tens of thousands.
And now, every step of the way,
there's less and less of a chance.
- I would've never expected that my sister
would be going through this, you know?
I'm just worried that they're just spending
all this money and it's all for nothing.
So, I said to Teresa,
why keep fighting and wasting that money
if it's not gonna work?
- Oh, my God.
You fight for him because those four girls
want their daddy. It's a no-brainer.
My mother and my father didn't always have
the most amazing relationship,
but that didn't mean that I don't need him.
Just like the girls, they need Joe.
I grew up without a dad. It's not good.
- You have to have tried everything to be able to look
your kids in the face and say, "I did everything."
But it's like, enough already.
At this point, they both have to make a decision
on whether or not to keep fighting or he has to go.
- You know, obviously, Easter's Sunday,
and Teresa's hosting.
- Easter's gonna be at my house.
You know, you have to still celebrate for the kids.
- She's trying to do everything she can to keep it normal.
- Right. - You know, and I get it.
But I definitely gotta get over there this week
and be there a little bit more for them.
- Yeah, of course.
- [blows raspberry] - So crazy.
- Give me the hawking stick. - No.
- Mom! - I mean, seriously?
Can we stop that?
Baby, you want to do your homework here?
- No! - Tiana's here to help.
Well, your uncle is gonna be here
any minute to give you a music lesson.
- I want to lay down.
- Okay, so then go lay down,
and then when Dayi Steve gets here,
I'll tell you to come back up, okay?
- All righty.
So how was your day, baby?
- Eh. - What's eh?
- I got hit in the head with a ball.
This girl who's friends with a girl
who I'm not friends with anymore...
- Mm-hmm. - She's like, "Oh, hello?
Next time, see the ball coming."
- When Gabi's being bullied at school,
obviously the hardest part for me
is to see her hurt and sad.
Listen, you can't let comments like that even bother you.
So I'm just trying to instill in Gabi,
"They don't like you, who cares?
"And someone else will like you.
Don't worry about it. It'll happen."
You're gonna have to find a way to just coexist.
That's it. - That's what I do.
- All right. [doorbell rings]
Oh, that's Uncle Steve.
- All right, multiplication.
- Hi, baby!
- How are you? - How are you?
- Hey. - How are you?
- Do you want a drink?
- Thank you.
- How have you been?
- So busy. - Dayi?
- Can you start teaching me? - You're so eager today.
- Can you wait five minutes?
Baby, please? I haven't seen him in a while.
Here, take this.
Oh, my God, Olivia loves her piano lessons,
almost just as much as you did.
But I remember, I don't know if you were 12 or 13
when you begged for a piano. - Yeah.
- And Daddy didn't believe that you were serious
because you were going through phases,
when all of a sudden, I woke up one day,
and you're going to music college.
And I was like...
Steven is a music teacher, and this was very hard
for my parents to accept,
because, culturally, the son is supposed to go
into the father's family business,
and Steven rebelled and focused
on musical theater.
- It's where I felt a connection to, you know?
I didn't feel like I belonged anywhere.
Music and theater allows, you know, the weirdoes
to feel important.
So it was finding my tribe.
And I think being gay was a huge part of that.
- But I didn't discover that
until I went to college.
- Well, I used to have this friend who used to be like,
"Your brother's gay." - Yeah.
- I never saw it.
- Mm-hmm. - You know?
We were not siblings that talked about stuff like that.
I mean, obviously, Mom doesn't talk about it.
- You just gotta understand the mentality
of my parents' generation.
Culturally, it's a shame to have a gay child.
So my parents know he's gay,
but they never speak of it.
- Well, listen,
that's her beliefs, and that's okay.
- I know, but she's gonna eventually
have to come to terms if you're ever
in a relationship with someone.
- Dayi? - Yes.
- Can you...
- I know, you want to play some music.
- Yeah. - All right, let's go.
- Mommy, come here.
Can I ask you something?
- Do you remember how to find middle C?
Yes, he is, baby.
Does that matter, though?
- No. - He's still the same person.
I don't care.
I've known him for my whole life.
- Yes. - Like, I didn't know that.
- ♪ G, F ♪
Do you want to sing it?
- Can I play while she's doing it?
- I never told you guys because I didn't think
it was anything to draw attention to.
You like who you like, and that's it.
I was raised in a family where,
you know, you didn't talk about things.
I don't want my kids to feel
like they have to keep secrets from me, ever.
All right, I'm gonna go check and see what he's doing.
Especially with all the bullying
that Gabi has gone through,
I want her to know that there's nothing
that we as a family cannot tackle together.
- ♪ Twinkle, twinkle, little star ♪
♪ How I wonder what you are ♪
- Yay! - You're a natural!
- Coming up...
- Danielle and I, we're actually at a good place.
- There's no way you two are sleeping together.
- Um... - Ah!
- Hey, beautiful. - Hi! How are you?
- Oh, you look so good. - Oh, thank you.
- You're working out a lot, aren't you?
- I'm trying. - Oh, yeah.
So, I'm glad you're not mad at me.
- I was shocked.
- Are you mad at me that I told the girls?
- Oh, my God, she hung up on me.
I think I had too much cabernet.
- That's okay. - Hi, ladies, how are you?
- How are you?
- Can you give me grapefruit and tequila?
- Okay, not a problem.
- I will go to the champagne rosé.
- And I'm gonna do a rosé champagne too.
- Okay. - [laughs]
- Yeah, it's happy hour, I need it all.
- Keep 'em coming. - Okay, no problem, ladies.
- So, tell me what's going on with Joe.
All right, yeah...
his appeal got denied.
- Do the kids know?
- Well, I told Gia and Gabriella.
I wasn't gonna tell Milania.
But then she overheard, 'cause it's like,
I'm on the phone a lot, like, calling lawyers.
It was not good.
- Oh, but Teresa...
- But then I'm not telling Audriana.
Audriana, she doesn't watch the news.
She doesn't go on the internet.
So she's not gonna find out,
unless I tell her, and there's no reason
to upset her until I have a final answer.
- My heart bleeds for your kids.
Not to minimize what you're going through,
but bleeds for your children.
- No, that's who my heart bleeds for, is for them.
- Okay. Two glasses of sparkling rosé.
- Oh, my God, this looks so good.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Not a problem.
- Well, Teresa, listen.
You're navigating the best you can.
But you're in total mom mode.
Sometimes, you gotta be in Teresa mode.
- What do you think, I don't feel like
drinking a bottle of tequila every night?
- Well, then, drink up, honey. - Yeah.
So, what's going on with you and Marty?
Are you together with him?
- I'm not sure I want to use that word.
- Oh, okay, I mean, you guys live in the same house.
Like, sparks could happen, you know?
- You know what's better now? Going down to the kitchen
and he makes coffee, I make tea in the morning,
and being able to say "Good morning."
- Yeah. - We haven't been doing that
forever. - Yeah, no, that's nice.
Wait, what's going on with Oliver?
- I don't know... what I'm doing.
But I have to say,
getting along with Marty is not terrible.
- Marleny. - Yes.
- What are you doing? - This is too little knife.
- No, no, yeah, I'll-- you put the cheese
and the grapes on here and the sausage,
and I'll get a separate plate for crackers.
- What are you doing? - Marty's coming over.
Do you think he slept with Danielle?
- Nope. - I said the same thing.
But everybody at the table was just like,
it's true, it's true.
Joe and I were always friends with Marty and Danielle,
till Danielle got Marty's head.
- Danielle started throwing all kinds of sh--
all over the place.
- I think Marge was throwing sh-- all over the place.
- But when Marty and Danielle were breaking up,
Marty had reached out to us
because he realized we were right about Danielle.
And we felt sorry for him because we saw all the bullsh--
that Danielle had put him through.
She constantly tries to tear him down,
tear down his children.
She has tried to ruin his reputation.
So I'm concerned about Marty
and that he's been drawn back in to her evil web.
One way or the other, she's lying.
- I'll get it. - Hello!
- Whoa, look at you, looking good.
- How are you, buddy? - How are you, brother?
- Wow, you look so glamorous! How are you?
- Good. - Come on in.
Sit down, sit down. - Look at this spread.
- Have a seat, there, kids.
- What are you drinking there, Joe?
- A gin. It's after 12:00.
- It's after 12:00.
I know, cheers, good times.
- To good friends. - I know.
- Yes. - Listen, Marty.
I'm happy you came over, because,
when we were in Jamaica, I felt so bad.
- Because if anybody says anything about you,
I get very defensive.
'Cause you know the way we feel about you.
- I know.
- Regardless, I think Danielle said
you two were sleeping together, for ulterior motives,
and I think that's why I got pissed off.
- Well... [clears throat]
I wish that that wasn't discussed,
because it's my personal life.
Danielle and I, we're actually in a good place
that, you know, we're civil.
And we're still in that house together,
so it's very peaceful now.
both: Really? - Yeah.
- Marty, I think she's at peace with you for one reason:
she doesn't want to be out of that house.
Currently, Danielle and Marty are still living together.
She only will be nice when she wants something.
According to the terms of their divorce,
Danielle has less than 30 days to come up with the $2 million
to buy Marty out, or she has to vacate
the premises so Marty can sell.
I am being honest with you, she will only
be around people that she can get something from.
- I mean, I don't know where we're going from here.
But I needed to apologize to Marty.
I hurt him, and I humiliated him.
And for that, I will forever regret,
but I want the house,
and I want it to be sort of a legacy for my children.
- And to get a house of that caliber at this price--
I have a cosigner. It's Oliver.
But if you and Marty get back together,
then you don't need Oliver.
- It's not that I need Oliver.
I could've gotten a loan. - Right.
- And I was in the process of getting one,
but the interest rate was astronomical.
Um, yeah, we're almost there. We're in the process of
getting the mortgage interest rate approved.
I see a future.
- Okay. - I see a future.
- All right, good, 'cause I hope you get it.
- I mean, Teresa was also trying to make it out
like you two could be getting back together.
- Well, you know, I can't say what's gonna happen
five years from now--
- But here's what's gonna happen--
- Marty, no way in ----ing hell.
Five years from now, I plan on you
being with someone who deserves you.
She disparaged you. No way.
- Oh, I'm not saying that she didn't do anything bad to me.
She's working on getting her sh-- together.
And I think we're past that.
- Marty, when you say you've put things behind you,
you're not having a weak moment?
There's no way you two are sleeping together?
See, that's not something I'm going to talk about.
- He ----ed her.
- You know, it is what it is.
- Wow. Men really are ----ing stupid.
- But I also am going to not be part of tearing at her.
Maybe, just maybe, someday,
somebody can change.
- I hope so. They have an exorcism.
You know, anything could happen.
- Listen, if things ever get tense,
with you and Marty,
you could come stay with me.
Everything you have going on,
and you think of me that way.
Thank you, baby.
And if I had more champagne, I would toast to you.
- You have mine.
- Well, okay, then, I'll just raise your glass to you.
- Drink it, drink it, yes.
- You're a good inspiration
to kids who are heavy.
- Dad, I almost died.
- Look at you now.
It's almost worth it.
- Are you guys excited to see Poppy?
- You better give him some big hugs and kisses.
- He gives me wet kisses. - Oh, yeah, wet kisses.
Poppy's lips are always wet. [laughs]
- Mommy, why do Nanny and Poppy don't live together?
Why did they get divorced?
- They did not get divorced. You know that.
They're happily married.
My parents live a very unique kind of life.
They're married, but they don't live together.
Nanny and Poppy haven't lived together in 19 years.
My parents both have really strong personalities.
I think when you put two fiery people together,
you're gonna get a lot of fires.
Nanny and Poppy still really love each other.
They just are happier not living together.
They really enjoy their time together now,
and when they're done, they can leave.
All right, go run in, tell Poppy we're here.
- My babies!
Poppy kiss, Poppy kiss. Mwah.
- Hi, Poppy. - Hi, Jackie.
- Mwah. - I'm hot.
- Give me your coats. Where do you want to play?
- You want to go in Mommy's old room?
- I'm gonna get a drink.
Do you have anything in your refrigerator?
- Nothing much.
- Oh, my God.
- [laughs] - Ew.
Oh, my God, Dad.
You are gonna get sick.
- Ah, come on, nonsense.
- My dad doesn't exactly hoard,
but I don't think my dad's thrown anything out
in probably 20 years.
Before I leave, I'm gonna go through everything.
I just wish you lived closer to me.
- Are you kidding me?
I wouldn't be near Atlantic City.
You know, I mean, you know... [chuckles]
- My dad loves gambling.
- I go three times a month.
- I know, that's why I worry.
I was gambling with my dad when I was really young.
I started sneaking into casinos with fake ID
when I was 15 years old.
It was like,
"Daddy's gonna take me to the dice table now."
Like, nothing came before that.
So are you generally winning or losing?
- I don't win, I lose.
- I'm not worried about my dad
money-wise with gambling.
He knows when to walk away.
Let's go see what else I can dump out.
I just think the whole casino environment,
you get flustered,
you stay there until the middle of the night.
- Ha! - Ah, my babies!
- Careful on the stairs.
I just don't think that's good for anyone,
much less someone in their late 70s.
So much stuff.
I hope that you don't let your medications expire.
- That's not for medication. That's to put loose change.
- Oh, really, okay, all right. - Yes.
Listen, there's something I want to show you.
A video I want you to see, okay?
- All right.
He does it to me every time I come over.
He's like, "I have a video." I'm like... [groans]
- Sit down. Let me show you something.
- I'm nervous.
- All right, here we go.
...having any barbecues this year.
- Oh, that was my junior prom.
- Who's that big girl?
- Oh, my God. Can you believe that's Mommy?
When I was a kid,
my parents didn't get home until late,
so I would come home from school,
my sister and I would always fight,
my brother was learning-disabled.
His schooling and his extra help took up a lot of time,
and I didn't want to add any stress to my parents.
- You're pretty.
- I was over 200 pounds.
So food was very comforting.
By the time I was in high school,
it really caught up to me.
Right after this, I started dieting.
My senior year, I already lost 20 pounds.
- Well, I got news for you.
You're a good inspiration to kids who are heavy.
- I mean, I battled a very terrible,
terrible eating disorder.
- Well, was it-- - Twenty years.
- You know something? It's almost worth it.
- Are you insane? - You wouldn't say--
- Are you insane?
- Look at you now.
- Don't even say that.
You don't know what I went through.
I almost died.
- No, you didn't. - Yes, I did!
Don't tell me I didn't almost die.
I didn't eat anything for 20 years.
For my dad, you get too fat, you go on a diet.
And that's it.
Listen, you're wrong.
It's not worth it to have an eating disorder.
I don't even want you to put that out in the universe.
For me, weight loss
was my thought process 24 hours a day.
Sometimes, if I was in the middle of a meal,
I would take garbage from the garbage can
and stuff it into the meal so that I physically
could not eat it anymore.
I was going through a personal hell.
And I want him to understand
how much torture I put myself through.
- All right, well...
We're done with this, okay?
- [groans] Oh, my God.
Gia, I need help!
- Want to help me put the Easter baskets together?
- You think I got enough stuff? - Yeah.
Oh, my God, I'm just so sad.
Just thinking about,
if we didn't have this immigration problem,
like, Daddy would've been home for this Easter.
- He called me five times yesterday, and he said,
it's coming to a point now
where every single one of his hopes
are getting denied, and he can't live with it.
- Yo! - Hey.
- What's up? - Hi, hon.
- We're making the Easter baskets for the kids.
And we were just talking about, in normal circumstances,
like, Joe would've been here for this Easter.
It's so sad.
It's like, I'm trying everything,
and it's like, he blamed me yesterday.
- Why? - He said...
why didn't I make him an American citizen?
- Right, so then why didn't you do it?
Why is it on me now?
- He's just speaking out of his ass, Mom.
He's going crazy.
- You blame him? - No!
That place is a sh--hole.
My dad is stuck in a 2x2 with five people.
I don't know what the hell to do.
- Well, let me ask you something.
So basically, he's in hell, right?
So what I'm worried about
is that we're gonna come out with zero at the end.
Why I'm telling you,
because you know he's holding on
for you guys.
- I already told him, say you lose this appeal.
You better fight it until the Supreme Court,
because I will never forgive you
if you don't fight it till the end.
- He's deteriorating in there, you understand?
You guys have done everything you possibly can.
But we're in a losing battle.
And you need to think about him now.
Like, you go and talk to him.
Say to him, "Listen, I'm okay...
with you...letting go."
- I don't want to be selfish, but, like,
I don't know if I'm ready to let him go.
- Give him the option.
Because at this point, he's suffering.
- Hug it out. Hug it out.
Hug it out.
Can you-- oh, my God.
That's how you treat me on Easter Sunday?
- Girls, I made lollipop lamb.
- Oh, my God.
- It fits just perfect.
- Audriana, can I have a hug?
You know you're almost as tall as me?
- Even though Gia and I decided
that we were gonna go see Joe
and, you know, discuss with him if he wants to keep fighting,
we're not showing any of this to Audriana.
- I can't reach. - Audriana, really?
- She's nine years old. Like, it's Easter.
And we want to have good memories for Audriana.
All right, I'll make the ham...
Papa, you're breathing heavy.
- [speaks indistinctly]
- All right, you sit there.
Papa, you feel like you're getting sick?
I hope not.
Oh, looks so pretty.
Good, good, good.
So, for 25 years,
I have been cooking every holiday.
- When I first married Frank,
I wanted to prove that I was the perfect wife.
It looks so pretty.
- Thank you. - Amazing.
I cooked my sauce, I cooked my lasagna.
Days and days of cooking
and cleaning, and for what?
- We have zucchini and goat cheese wraps.
Filet mignon on toast.
I have nothing to prove anymore, I'm over it.
- Dolore. - Oh, hi.
- Wow. Hi, guys. How are you?
- Nice to meet you. - My pleasure.
Ooh, I... - [laughs]
- Wait, Frank, don't touch another thing.
I've never had anything look so pretty.
- All right, we're pretty much set up.
Is there anything else we can help you with?
- No, that's it. - Thank you very much.
- You're welcome. Thank you.
- Nice bread bowl. - Yeah.
I feel like I'm in somebody else's house right now.
- You are.
Soon as David's house is done, this is mine.
- Shut up, Frank.
I know that Frank has his doubts
about David giving me a commitment.
- Well, what do you think is gonna happen?
- I think that David wants to be with me.
- Okay. If you say so.
- David better not ----ing not show up
to Easter dinner so that you could add
more fuel to the fire for Frank Catania.
- David definitely coming? - Of course he's coming.
Listen, I don't ask for a lot.
So when I ask,
he just better just show up.
- Did I even tell you? I had a talk with Gia.
- About what?
- You know, she was saying,
Joe's having a really hard time.
He's, like, losing his mind.
- Wow. - So I said, "Listen.
You gotta let him go."
I told her, go see him.
Tell him it's okay.
And let him make his own decision.
- Ah! [speaks indistinctly] It's cute.
Audriana's literally almost as tall as me.
It's so sad.
And I got Dad's short gene.
- He just called. You guys just missed his call.
But he's gonna call back again.
He's like, "This will be my last Easter, like, in there."
And I say, "You're right."
I said, "Next Easter, you'll be out."
- Next Easter, we'll be with Dad, right?
- Yes, definitely. - [giggles]
- Every holiday.
- You like the shirt I bought you for Easter, Frank?
- I love it. See how nice it fits?
- You lost some weight? - Yep.
I'm sure by the end of the day, it'll be back on.
[knock on door] Oh, who's here, Dolore?
- Hi! - Hi!
Happy Easter! Happy Easter.
- Oh, your hair looks so pretty.
- What's happening, guys? - Hey!
- Hi, Frankie. - How are you, my dear?
- Happy Easter, my Dolores. - Happy Easter, Mom.
- What's up, guys? - Oh!
Love you. - I love you.
- Well, happy Easter, everybody.
- Happy Easter, Dad.
- Oh, my God, what a nice spread.
- Beautiful. - Guys, eat.
- And what about your eating, Dad?
You're doing good? - Oh, yeah.
- What did you have for breakfast, Dad?
- I had a bagel. - Mm-hmm.
- And then I had cream cheese and jelly.
- Okay, that's not okay. - But I toasted it.
- Toasting it doesn't make it any better.
I'm concerned that my father
hasn't made any progress on his health.
It's called the widow-maker, what you have.
- This is all healthy.
- It's not, it's fried. - This is vegetables.
- Dad, wake-up call, hello?
You're not supposed to have bread in the morning.
You're not supposed to have any processed sugars.
You keep eating like this, it's not gonna end well.
- The cream cheese was fat-free.
- Mom? What'd you have for breakfast?
- Chocolate eggs?
My mom? Don't even ask.
When's the last time you ate a vegetable?
I knew it.
- Guys, let's go. Easter egg hunt.
- Come on, guys, let's go. - Getting one more.
- Stay here. Stay here.
On three, come on.
- Dolores, is David coming? - Yes, he is.
- All right, good.
- He's never here on time. - It is what it is.
- Mom, you give him a lot more slack than you gave me.
- That's not true. - That's true.
- Tell him, Ma. - You know?
- Let me tell you something. - Seriously.
- You came in late for dinner, I said,
"Hmm, I know why he's late."
- 'Cause I was out buying roses.
- Yeah, roses, my ass. - All right.
- Yeah. - [laughs]
- Frankie. Happy Easter.
- Happy Easter, David. - How are you?
- Good, thanks. - Looking strong, man.
- David's here.
- Happy Easter. - Happy Easter.
- Hello, Dolores Catania. - Hi.
- Happy Easter. - Who cares that David's late?
- How are you? - Thank you.
- Happy Easter. How are you?
- Wonderful. - Good.
- Frank is upset that I'm not mad
at David for being late, but that's something
Frank would've got in trouble for.
I know Frank better than Frank knows Frank.
- Hey, guys, just to let you know,
all holidays after this will be
at the new house in Franklin Lakes with David and Dolores.
- [laughs] - Shut up, Frank.
- Is there anything I should know?
You know, just being the father over here.
Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?
- If she's not gonna listen to me
about getting a commitment from David,
I figure let me try to get the whole family on board.
- I'm just trying to finish the house.
Let's finish the house.
- Most important people in her life, me and her family,
are on her back about commitment,
maybe she'll push the issue.
- See, when you date Dolores, you get her family with it.
- And her husband too, you get everybody.
- It's a package. Ex-husband. Family.
- The kids. Everybody.
- Coming up...
- Say I love you. - Love you, Daddy.
- I love you too, Audriana.
- All right, I love you, bye. - [sobbing quietly]
- It's okay, boo-boo. - Let's go on a walk.
- Is the lamb chop cooked?
Don't burn yourself.
- You girls look so beautiful.
- Come on, little chicklets. - Yo' mom a chicklet.
[knocking on door]
- They're here.
- Hello, happy Easter.
- Hey. - Happy Easter.
Hi! How are you? - Good, happy Easter.
- Hi. - Hi.
- What's up, pretty girl?
- I brought you sprinkle cookies.
- Oh, thank you. It's just what I wanted.
Oh, my God.
- There was definitely a time
where Teresa and I could never joke about this.
- Melissa came to my house Christmas Day.
She brought me sprinkle cookies.
I threw them in the garbage.
- Run away, coward, like you always do when you're wrong.
- Excuse me?
- We're asking you like this,
on our frigging knees,
to stop hurting us!
It's sad that it took all of these things
that she's going through to get us to where we are.
But there's a silver lining to that.
If this is what brought us here,
fine, I'll take it.
- You guys look so badass, it's not even funny.
- Huh? - Okay.
So these are the boys.
- Look at Milania.
I want to know why you're so skinny.
- I don't know. - So you got a boyfriend?
- No. - You looking at a boy?
- No! - Gino, Joey.
- Thank you.
- Here, this one's yours. - Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Joe, he hasn't been feeling well.
You hear him breathing? - What's the matter with you?
- I worry about my dad constantly
because my dad's been in the hospital with pneumonia
more times than I can even count.
- Well, are you gonna go to the doctor?
- Why are you waiting till Tuesday?
- We try to act like we're not that worried about him.
- [speaks Italian]
- Because it does piss him off,
but of course we always are keeping a close eye on him.
- All right, let's get the table set, Melissa.
- Okay. - I'm excited to eat.
- How are you doing? Are you okay?
- Yeah. I mean, I'm hanging in there.
you know, with me, you know,
I cry at night when I'm by myself.
- Yes, we're coming!
- Oh, Lord Jesus.
- All right, and we have the ham still.
- [speaks Italian] - Yeah, it's done.
- It is. - Done?
- Yeah. - It look good.
- Who wants the pizzagaina?
- Joe, do you want to say grace?
- No. Who's gonna say it? You want to say it?
Gia, you want to, or Melissa?
- You're very good at this.
- All right, God, thank You for this delicious meal,
and Mommy, we love you.
I know you're watching us,
and please help us
get through difficulties
that we're going through right now.
And help my daughters be strong every day.
'Cause we're gonna get through this, girls, no matter what.
I love you guys. Amen.
- That was the best grace.
- I love you.
- Good job. - I want lamb.
- Audriana, this is your favorite.
The lamb chops.
- Let her have it first.
- I'll do two more.
- Gia, Daddy made the best lamb chops.
- Daddy did?
You remember Daddy's lamb chops?
They were good, right?
Audriana, she remembers the small things.
His laugh, his cooking, how he did her hair.
And I always try to boost her memory
because he left her at such a young age.
- Who wants ham?
- It's so good.
- Papa, what's the matter?
Do you feel like you have a fever?
He doesn't feel warm, right?
- Do you want some water?
- He doesn't like us asking if he's okay.
- I know. [phone chiming]
- Oh, I think this is Joe.
- Hello, this is a free call from...
- Hi, Dad.
You're on speaker with everyone.
all: Happy Easter!
- What are you eating there today, Joe?
- How are you doing, Joe? Are you doing all right?
- Yeah, I could imagine.
- Joe, say hi to Joey. - Hi.
- No, I got shorter.
- Here, Audriana, tell Dad-- Audriana's on the phone, Daddy.
- Hi, Daddy.
- We ate lamb chops today,
and they're not as good as your lamb chops.
- Daddy makes better lamp chops than Nonno?
- Yep. - Yeah?
- Dad, me and Audriana
were standing next to each other today.
She's, like, literally taller than me.
- I'm 4'7".
- Audriana, you're 4'7"?
- Wait, what did you say? Say it again.
- You still got your sense of humor.
It's why I don't like to talk to you, bro,
because you really break my ----ing heart.
- Don't make him upset, Joe.
- You know, and I miss you, bro--
- You're making him cry.
- You gotta stay strong, all right?
- He's gonna make him cry.
- I know, but just be strong.
- One minute remaining.
- Love you too. - Hello?
What's so painful to me is, like, the past five years,
our family being ripped apart.
- You're making the whole room cry, Dad.
- We haven't been together on holidays.
Joe has missed the girls growing up.
- It'll be over soon.
Next Easter, we'll be together.
- Yeah, definitely.
- One minute remaining. - Exactly.
Anywhere is better than there.
And that's something that we can't get back.
- Twenty seconds left. - Twenty seconds left.
- Love you! - Love you, Daddy.
- Say I love you. - Love you, Daddy.
- All right, I love you, bye.
- It's okay, boo-boo.
- Let's go on a walk.
[Audriana sobbing quietly]
[Audriana sobbing quietly]
- Come on, let's go on a walk.
- [sobs quietly]
- All right, let's clear the table.
- Clean up. - Antonia. Milania.
Gabriella, let's go, help me clear the table, girls.
- Are you okay, baby?
- I hate when she cries.
She just misses him.
She wants him home, that's it.
We all just want him home.
- I know.
- All right, it's okay.
Tell me what's the matter.
- Gia and I are planning to go see Joe.
Oh, I mean, I don't think so.
But I don't want Audriana to see her father and ICE.
Like, it's a little too traumatic,
because that means he's gonna be behind a glass.
I don't want her to see him that way.
- But Daddy could still come home.
- You understand?
All right, let's go.
Mwah. I love you.
- Come here, Audriana.
I want to hug my beautiful little girl.
Aww, I love you.
You're gonna tell me when that recital is.
I'll take Nonno with me.
- It's okay, I love you. - I love you.
- I've tried to step up as a father figure
while their dad is gone,
but, you know what's so hard?
I'm not their dad.
- I'll be right back, Nonno.
- They love me,
but I'm still not their dad.
How you doing?
- All right.
That's what breaks my heart, like, when I see my...
my kids upset.
You know, she wants to see him,
but we don't want to make her see him like that.
- What if he gets deported?
- I don't think it's-- yeah, she's too young.
Right? Don't you think?
- I don't know. - Behind the glass?
I love you.
- Hey, Mom? - What?
- That we don't want you to see Daddy where he's at right now.
We want you to wait till, like, we're--
- We don't know yet.
Audriana still doesn't know that Joe lost his appeal.
- I promise I'll tell you-- of course I'm gonna tell you.
'Cause then we're gonna go visit him wherever he is.
But she's a smart little girl.
As much as I'm trying to hide it from her,
she sees, she feels.
But she's still my baby.
I'm gonna do whatever I can for her to not feel any pain.
Papa, if you want to go to the hospital, I'll take you.
- Mom, he's hot. - Do you have to go, Papa?
- The ham.
- Milania, can you start bringing the food up there?
- I know.
- You want to go lay down? - [coughs]
- All right, Joe, help him in the family room.
All the stress that our family is under
is affecting my dad too.
It's taken a toll on his health.
Here, give me this.
It's like, I feel sometimes, like, why do we have to
keep going through all this?
You gonna put some oxygen on?
It's like, enough's enough.
Nonno's laying down.
- Listen, this family's been through a lot, right?
You remember these sprinkle cookies,
what they used to-- they did to us?
- Joey's like, "What are you talking about?"
- We will never let little things affect us
This is your family.
We're hurting, because that's normal.
Okay? Stay strong.
All right, guys?
Everybody have a sprinkle cookie.
Spread 'em around. Spread 'em around.
Spread. I want you to eat it.
No, I want to see a big bite of it.
Show the love.
- Give her a colorful one.
- Is it good?
- It's so good.
Next time on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey"...
- I want to know, how would you guys feel
if Mommy and Daddy had one more baby?
- You barely can handle all of us.
- See what I get?
- That's your personal business,
with my father, so enough.
- Okay, let's, like, not ignore the elephant in the room.
- The Versace-clad elephant.
- What's your problem, trout mouth?
- You prostitute! - Get out of my ----ing--
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
- [yelps] - Don't you ever...
- Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
