'Real Housewives of New Jersey': Teresa Giudice apologizes again and Ashlee thinks she's Ke$ha

ashlee-kesha-real-housewives-of-new-jersey.jpgAfter apologizing via open letters to her castmates and former friends in In Touch last week, Teresa Giudice continued her apology tour on Sunday's (April 29) episode of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," saying she's sorry to anyone who was apologized about comments in her cookbook. Little does Teresa realize, it's not the cookbook her brother, Joe Gorga, and sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, are so steamed about -- it's the fact that Teresa allegedly told her brother that Melissa would leave him for a wealthier man.

"It's only a matter of time before that storm hits," Kathy Wakile says. And she wasn't even referring to the black eye Joe Giudice gets from a candlestick while grabbing Richie Wakile's testicles (???). From the previews for next week's episode, it looks like the real storm is rolling in -- and everyone's wearing bindis!

Overshadowing the Teresa-related drama this week, though, is J acqueline Laurita's daughter Ashlee's departure to Las Vegas after getting booted by her mom and stepdad, Chris Laurita. Ashlee is freaking out about flying and has a major chip on her shoulder about leaving. As Albie Manzo so eloquently states, "Ashlee thinks that she's Ke$ha." (See above photo for your own comparisons -- that's Ke$ha on the right.)

More quotes from Ashlee that may lead viewers to believe she might have more in common with Ke$ha than just the blonde locks:

  • "I wish I was 21, because then I could get a drink and I could just relax."
  • "One time I took a straw to a bottle of Nyquil."
  • "I didn't know that planes could crash until I saw the movie 'Castaway.'"
  • "This is my first time flying without my iPod."
  • "I took half of a Xanax ... but I think that was a mistake because I'm kind of falling asleep now."

Ashlee misses her first flight because silly Albie makes the rookie mistake of not walking Ashlee to security -- a mistake Chris doesn't repeat the next day when he makes sure Ashlee gets on that plane to Vegas to go stay with her aunt and uncle.

According to an update from Jacqueline on Sunday's "Watch What Happens Live," Ashlee is "so good" now -- and she's back to being a brunette and has ditched the lip-plumping injections. Bravo, Ashlee.
