The Real Housewives of New Jersey went in search of alligators as part of their girls’ trip to Florida on Sunday night, but Amber Marchese’s husband, Jim, had the biggest bite of them all.

“Better watch out for the gators,” Kathy Wakile wisely told her sister, Rosie Pierri, as she showed her the new house she was building. “And I’m not even talkin’ about the ones in the Everglades.”

“Don’t you sing or something?” Rosie asked, looking directly at Kevin Jonas, who co-owns a construction company and is helping to build the Wakile family’s new home.

“That was my day job,” said the former Jonas Brother. “Now I’m doing this.”

“Who’s next to design their landscaping? ‘N Sync?” Pierri joked, later telling her family she had broken up with girlfriend Ellen. “Let’s get Lance Bass in on this.”

But there was no joking in Florida.

“How can one person make everyone hate him?” Melissa Gorga’s husband, Joe, said ahead of the arrival of Jim Marchese, who infuriated the group when he refused to attend a guys’ night out because he runs a mortgage company and didn’t want to be around Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, who pleaded guilty to fraud.

Jim and Amber arrived in Florida looking to mend fences and Jim began sweet-talking Nicole Napolitano, which didn’t sit well with her boyfriend Bobby (Jim’s former best friend). Bobby was so irritated he stormed off, calling his girlfriend, who tried to chase after him, “stupid,” before locking himself in the bathroom.

Jim wasn’t done yet, despite his wife begging him to stop. He then accused Bobby of being unfaithful to Napolitano.

“You don’t know what Bobby told me about your family,” Jim said to twins Teresa Aprea and Napolitano, hinting to the big rumor about Aprea’s husband Rino sleeping with the twins’ mother.

“In a man’s world, Jim is considered a bitch,” Joe Gorga said as tempers continued to rise.

The gators weren’t limited to the Sunshine State, either, as Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita continued to snap at one another, despite Laurita’s efforts to reach out to her former BFF.

“Has she always been there for me? Of course not,” said Laurita, noting the way Giudice dealt with her son’s autism diagnosis was to say, “Oh, he’ll be fine.”

“I’m always gonna doubt her She said horrible things about you,” Giudice told her husband, recalling a previous reunion where Laurita alleged she had walked in on him having an affair. “How do I know she wouldn’t ever betray me again?”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
