Teresa Giudice has done insulted reality show royalty. The woman who just can’t seem to to be on good terms with anyone recently slammed Bethenny Frankel‘s infamous Skinnygirl cocktails!

On tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa compares her Fabellini to Bethenny‘s Skinnygirl empire. “My thing is I don’t like anything that tastes diet-y,” she explains. “For instance, Skinnygirl tastes diet-y. I don’t like that.”

Teresa seconded the claim on her Fabulicious website, writing: “I’m so so so proud of it. And it tastes delicious!!! And Fabellini is low calorie–less than 1/2 the calories of other ‘skinny’ drinks.”


Well, a source tells Us Weekly that although Teresa‘s comments may have been incendiary, she actually idolizes Bethenny and hopes she too can establish herself as the next great Housewife mogul! Well, they’re both abrasive and kind of insane, so they’ve got that in common! 

Teresa will work as hard as she can till she gets to Bethenny status,” a friend of Teresa’s said. A different source adds that Teresa also looks up to fellow reality star and business success Donald Trump for inspiration. “She learned a lot from Donald about bringing her brand out even more.”

Teresa is allegedly hoping to channel both her business success and her personality into a spinoff, following in Bethenny‘s footsteps. She’s also sworn she’s not leaving RHONJ despite the animosity of her co-stars – none of whom are speaking to her at the moment. Nothing like over-staying your welcome!

Moving on, Melissa Gorga recently partied in Miami for Miami Swimweek and L*Space Swim wear. “So excited i’m gonna be in Miami this weekend for #swimweek I can’t wait to see all the hot bikinis..,” Melissa tweeted.

As a total coincidence, since Bravo is in the middle of filming another reality show there and all, Melissa got together with Real Housewives of Miami stars for a cross-franchise reunion.

Some photos of Melissa with Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria (who reportedly decided not to remain an “official Housewife” after her younger son was involved in a serious car accident) are below!

Finally, tonight is an all-new episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Nothing too exciting happens except Kathy Wakile and Teresa get annoyed with each other over recipes in Teresa’s cookbook. So that makes Cookbook Gate 2.0 for this season.

And the Househusbands get together to develop a course of action to circumvent their wives drama-starting ways in preparation for a cast-wide trip to Napa. Joe Giudice, of course, causes some friction!

Real Housewives of New Jersey airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c. Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the entire episode, so grab your poison whether it be Fabellini, Skinnygirl, Voli Vodka, or Joe Gorga and join us!
