Teresa Giudice Lashes Out at Brother for Christening Brawl

Two weeks later, the wounds from Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga's Real Housewives of New Jersey christening fight are still fresh.

On Monday's all-new episode — which picks up shortly after Giudice tries to reconcile with Gorga — Giudice attempts to mend her bond with her brother, Joe.

Giudice's pal, Caroline Manzo, however, isn't necessarily sure she's ready to change. "Every time you talk about what happened the other day at the christening, it's very combative all the time," Manzo says in the above preview clip. "Everybody's talking, nobody's listening."

When Giudice says she tried to connect with her brother but their schedules didn't match up, Manzo suggests she write him a letter to get her feelings out. Problem is, Giudice is still heated when she drafts a sample letter with Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.

"All I want to say in the letter is: 'I love you, I want to be a family again. What are you doing? You're hurting our children and parents,'" mom of four Giudice says in the clip. Manzo is quick to call her out, citing an "obvious" breakdown in communication. "You just attacked. Can't do that," Manzo snipes. "There's obviously an issue with communication."

Check out more from Monday's episode in the clip and tune in to see if Giudice can put her feelings aside when the full episode airs at 9 p.m. (EST) on Bravo.
