Last night's Bravo episode sneak peek of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" was titled "Horse Whisper to a Scream." As the episode opens, they recall the poignant meeting with the psychic who had Kathy and Rosie revisiting their late father. Caroline knows that Albert remains skeptical, but wishes he would let his guard down. While Teresa’s words to Jacqueline about karma coming back to her children ring too familiarly in her ear, as they hit a nerve for both she and Chris regarding their autistic son Nick.
They are still at Melissa’s birthday vacation at Miraval resort, but even Joe Gorga did not know just how intense the revelations would be. As he talks with his wife, who has been sick, she tells him that she just wants to sit by the pool in a bikini and have a drink, not participate in the intensities of the program.
They all have an appointment to meet with a horse healer. This is a different presentation, and the man responsible tells them they will not be riding a horse today. As they sit around a corral, Wyatt Webb, equine expert is the man in charge of this presentation along with his horse. Wyatt has been a therapist for 33-years and Chris is his first volunteer. He shows him how to clean his hoof, and relates that the house only responds to one thing; authenticity. Chris performs the act once again with total cooperation from the horse. As the rest of the gang looks on, they are surprised at the ease Chris has in doing this. Wyatt tells them that Chris was not guarded at all, and did not fear having the horse do anything but cooperate. This entire process made believers out of the rest of the group. Caroline and Rosie loved it because it recognized who you are inside.
When Richie made a joke, that Wyatt is a genius who gets people to clean his horses, Jacqueline said he was a smart-ass. Wyatt retorted that Richie makes jokes, so he does not have to pay attention to how he feels. Nailed it! The entire group was eating out of his hand after that statement. Rosie was next, and Wyatt asked what her story was? She hesitated, but revealed that she did not feel good enough at times. She cried, as did most of the group. She had been feeling inadequate for most of her life. He told her that by volunteering to come there, she most certainly was good enough. He told her that the horse did not give a damn what her title was, or anything else about her. Sure enough, the horse responded to her immediately. She revealed that in Italian families, you grew up, got married and had kids. This is not her situation, and she wonders if she does not deserve to be happy. Melissa was next; she took two different approaches walking to the horse, as Wyatt stopped her and asked if she put everyone’s need before her own?
