Part three of  Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey's reunion special finally came to a close and what a power-packed hour it was! The Jersey divas Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile, and Teresa Giudice were joined by their husbands (Caroline Manzo's hubby Albert had to work!) to talk about the drama-filled season.

Here are some of the jaw-dropping moments from the special.

Teresa and her brother Joe Gorga haven't spoken since the 2011 Posche fashion show. Tre's younger brother begged her to stop making allegations that his wife was once a stripper in order for their family to heal. Teresa maintained throughout the entire episode that she'd never called Melissa a stripper.

Speaking of strippers (When are these people ever not?) Jacqueline asked Chris to tell everyone where he met her, challenging Joe Giudice'sclaims that Chris had met her stripping in Vegas. I don't think anyone was surprised when Chris backed up Jac's version of their origin story — they met at a trade show in Chicago. He wasn't going home with Juicy, after all!

Joe Gorga stunned the entire room when he revealed that because of his fractured relationship with Teresa, he and his family had lost contact with his and Teresa's parents. Tre became hysterical, claiming "Mommy and Daddy" loved Joe and that she never talked bad about him to her parents. When Jacqueline interjected with "Yes you do!," Teresa flew out of her seat shrieking at her former bestie as Chris and Andy begged Jac to stay out of it.

Not to be outdone in the area of shocking revelations, Juicy Joe shared why he dislikes his brother-in-law: Joe Gorga neglected to return borrowed tools to Joe Giudice. I think that's how it started with the Hatfields and McCoys.

Kim D., the mastermind behind Melissa's fashion show takedown, made a memorable appearance. Kim revealed she had beef with Melissa, because she promoted a rival boutique with the same name as Kim's shop. Sounds like a good reason to destroy a family to me!

Kim also revealed that Teresa knew something was going to go down regarding Melissa at the fashion show, but not the exact details. Kim also claimed Jacqueline and Caroline knew. Caroline challenged her statements, asking Kim if she could honestly say that Jac knew beforehand. Jac maintained she found out about the takedown via text messages, but wouldn't reveal who she was getting them from.

After a season of accusations about potential stripper pasts, the biggest shocker of the night came when Joe Gorga admitted he had dropped to his drawers for money as a Chippendales dancer! Guess that settles that.

Richie's outbursts: Viewers of RHONJ were often gobsmacked by how frank Richie Wakilewas about his sex life with wife Kathy, not to mention their respective anatomies. Wakile informed Andy he wasn't ashamed by what he said and told his kids bluntly, "How do you think you got here?" Less is more should be Richie's new mantra.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Kim D. claims she's friends with both Jac and Caroline. Why are they friends with someone who would set both Melissa and Teresa up?

Thank you, TV gods.: Chris stating siblings Teresa and Joe want a relationship, but can't get it together. The man's always the voice of reason.

Awk-ward: Juicy Joe and Richie arguing over who grabbed the other's crotch to start their fight.

Hotness: The husbands cleaned up really nice for the reunion.

Fab-u-lous: Caroline imploring all of the housewives to work on their relationships with their loved ones before it is too late. Her words of wisdom are always on point.

Can. Not. Wait.:  Season 5! Andy and Bravo need to strike while the iron is hot.

    Teresa needs to define family and where she stands with hers.She is the one hurting her parents not her brother. She wants her fifteen minutes of fame at the cost of her girls and her husband.It's sad no one on the show will ever trust her again.She needs a real head check!

    I love the way you have beat this monster that has damaged your youth. I also suffered and had the surgery and now wish after losing 165 lbs to come up with a new look. It is very hard to do well because of several things that happen from having the surgery. From a girlfriend in my dreams listen to my advise. 1. eat extra protein for your hair.((hair becomes thin and breaks a lot) 2. check your blood and iron in your blood (I had a heart attack because I was not told this) 3. get B12 shot as often as possible because you become very tired and don't even know it. 4. Which your teeth and see the dentist every 3 or 4 months (because many of my teeth have become loose and caps have fallen out because of it.) 5.BOTTOM LINE IF IT CAME DOWN TO DOING IT AGAIN I WOULD BE THE FIRST IN LINE AT THE DOCTORS. IT GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK AND I WAS ABLE TO GROW UP WITH MY 3 CHILDREN. Stay strong pretty lady I would love to travel to North Jersey to see your store and buy some goodies. Suzanne Fox Marlton NJ

    Don't you actually have to be wise to have words of wisdom. Caroline is not wise, unless the new definition of wise is "presumptuous, haughty, imperious, brazen" then she is as wise as King Solomon. Oh, wait. That's the definition of arrogant which is exactly what Mrs. Manzo seems on the show. Arrogant and petty.
