Caroline Manzo has largely held her tongue when it comes to Teresa Giudice for fear of disrupting her family's Napa Valley wine country getaway, but on Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Manzo family matriarch snaps, leading to an epic confrontation with Giudice.
When Giudice tries to make nice with Manzo and tell her she'd "love" for them to rekindle their friendship, Manzo sees right through her plea. "I'll have a conversation with somebody who tells the truth and admits what they've done," she snipes in this preview clip to Giudice, who apologizes for her bad behavior on the group vacation with the Gorga, Laurita and Wakile families.
"If I didn't want to be here, Joe and I wouldn't have come. You guys mean a lot to us. I love your husband, your children," Giudice says coyly, causing Manzo to totally flip. "You don't love me, you don't even like me!" Manzo fumes.
Later, Manzo goes on a tirade about the woman who slammed her family in her cookbook, and whose husband, Joe, called his wife a "c-nt."
"'I love you,' she says. "Bulls--t. I want the truth: Tell me the truth, tell me you hate me," Manzo levels when Giudice is out of earshot. "Don't you dare lie to my face in front of everybody."
