“I had this Cayenne with you, Milania, and Gabriella when you guys were babies,” the ’Wife said.“I started the show with this car… Yeah, this was my first car on the show. This and daddy had a Maserati. We had like seven — yeah, we had other cars, too.”

“Because it’s a car; this is more of an SUV,” Teresa replied. “I don’t like SUVs, just saying. Because I feel like they’re mommy cars.”
