In tonight’s episode of the RHWNJ season finale:
Caroline and Danielle finally come face to face.
The episode started with Teresa cooking for a dinner party with the Manzos and the Loreidas. Their bond in Italy had become quite close. Caroline asked Jacqueline how Ashley is doing through this rough time. The attorney had asked Danielle to drop the charges on Ashley and she refused.
Caroline said that she is so upset over how Danielle has tried to hurt Teresa with her home rumors, Ashley with the lawsuit and Christopher with how he treated her at the Brownstone. Caroline asked everyone if they thought she should have a sit-down with Danielle to put an end to all of this drama. Caroline decided that she is definitely going to arrange a meeting with Danielle but everyone in the family has to agree that they will go along with Caroline and put an end to the nonsense.
Meantime, Danny makes a visit to Danielle’s house and she tells him about the text message from her. Danny thinks that Caroline is the boss of the family and all negative attention that has been directed towards Danielle is due to Caroline controlling her family. Danny feels that Danielle is going to be unprotected during this meeting she will be having. Danielle assured him that she will not be going alone.
Meantime, at Danielle’s house, she receives a text from Danielle which read “I’d like to put an end to all the nonsense, let me know if you’d be available to meet Sunday?” Danielle feels that she should go ahead with the meeting to finally get the dignity and respect she deserves.
When Jacqueline and Chris went home after the dinner at Teresa’s they sat Ashley down and explained to her that Caroline is going to try to meet with Danielle and ask her to drop the charges against her. She told Ashley that all communication with Danielle or all comments against Danielle must stop. Jacqueline and Chris can tell from Ashley’s immediate response that it’s going to be difficult for her to stop talking about her.
Caroline tells her kids that she’s on her way to meet with Danielle. They think she’s nuts for wanting to come face to face with her. Caroline said that she is meeting with Danielle to close the book and put an end to the drama.
Danielle made sure to call her energist before the meeting with Caroline to help her get in a calm, relaxed state. Once she was prepared she got in her car with her security guard and headed to the restaurant.
The rest of the group went out to dinner at a the Brownstone while Caroline had her meeting with Danielle. Once again the conversation moves to the subject of Danielle. Jacqueline and Ashley get into an argument over Danielle and Ashley walks away from the table. Jacqueline chases her to the bathroom and insists that she brought up those things to prove a point. Caroline’s daughter Lauren convinced Ashley to return to the table to enjoy the rest of the dinner.
The two ladies sat down and Caroline thanked Danielle for coming. She began to tell her why she called her there for the meeting. Caroline said that she doesn’t feel she can form an opinion on what is going on in this fight unless she hears both sides to the story. Caroline asked Danielle why she feels the need to go after Ashley. Danielle told Caroline that Ashley assaulted her physically and therefor she needs to be punished.
Caroline tells Danielle that Ashley has admitted to her mistake and she is sorry for what was done. Caroline told Danielle that Ashley never threatened her. Danielle disagrees with everything Caroline has to say and continues to stand by her lawsuit against Ashley. Finally Danielle had enough and decided to walk away from the meeting with Caroline.
Danielle arrives home and tells her children that she’s OK and unharmed. Caroline goes to the Brownstone to meet with everyone at dinner. She tells them all about what happened at the meeting and how she really got nowhere with Danielle. She told them that she called her a clown, she called her garbage and unfortunately she had to stoop to her level to do so. She said to her family that if they have any further problems with Danielle it’s their own fault.
In the end Ashley was ordered to pay $189 and the judge dropped the charges against her. Next week is the reunion show.
