On Sunday night’s finale of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” it was another Posche Fashion Show craptastrophe—and no, we’re not talking about Kim D.’s sloshed face.

While Teresa asked Melissa about bald-headed Angelo, who allegedly knew her during her stripper days, Jacqueline was receiving multiple texts from an unidentified source that claimed Teresa and Kim D. were setting up Melissa to embarrass her and that Tre had known about it two weeks before…

Meanwhile, because Melissa kept claiming ignorance on Angelo, Tre finally just came out with it and told her that Angelo said she used to dance for him at a gentleman’s club. Melissa denied it and claimed she was simply a bartender there for a week, but smelling shadiness on Tre’s part, Melissa called hubby Joe Gorga and told him the story. This made Teresa nervous and almost combative with her sis-in-law, fearful that her tiny bro would come over and flip out like a rabid chinchilla!

“Historically, anytime Teresa hits, it’s with an audience,” Caroline told the camera. Touché, Mother Hen.

And to convince Melissa that treacherous Teresa had set her up big time, Caroline took Jacqueline’s phone to reveal the texts from the anonymous source.

While all the ladies freaked out, Angelo was heard from a distance laughing to someone about how Kim D. and Tre were indeed trying to humiliate “holier-than-thou” Mel by using him as a pawn. (The cameras dared not get too close to Angelo in fear that we would see his teeth and keel over.)

Once Kathy’s boobilicious hubby Rich and beanie thug Joe roll up to the fashion show, the drama thickened gangsta style(!), with Kim D. almost killing Joe by the sight of her face. Unfortunately for Joe, though, his biceps and stout calves couldn’t get to the menacing culprit, Angelo, who had already left the building.

After a lot of squawking and pacing about throughout the night, Joe finally gave up, and he and Melissa shooed off Tre and her claims of innocence. Disgusted and exhausted with her drama, the two decided that they were done with her…and so was Jacqueline.

Buckle your seatbelts, people: Next week, the RHONJ Reunion Show gets 100 times uglier.
