The strained relationship between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa, is no secret to Real Housewives of New Jersey fans. Just witness the violent post-christening brawl in the Season 3 premiere and the dramatic letter Teresa sent to her brother two episodes ago.

Here are the top 10 things we learned from their trip of a lifetime:
10. Blondes don't always have more fun: This entire season has been Team Brunette (aka Jill, LuAnn, Kelly and Cindy) vs. Team Blonde (Alex, Ramona and Sonja). However, Alex showed her sharp tongue is color-blind when she called-out her teammates for their ignorance throughout the trip. "I love Ramona and Sonja but sometimes they do make me cringe," Alex said within hours of their landing in Morocco. "They didn't care whom they offended." Later, she admitted she was "mortified" when Ramona told...
