After their explosive trip to Vermont, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita are most definitely on the outs again. Ah, well. It was a fun three (four?) weeks while it lasted! Teresa sat down with Bravo recently to discuss how she currently feels about her former bestie, and how The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion will reveal even more intense fallout between the ladies.
After Jacqueline called Teresa the “C” word at their last dinner in Vermont together, Teresa says she doesn’t even recognize her old friend. “She’s just not the Jacqueline that I know. The Jacqueline I know didn’t act that way.”

Teresa told Bravo’s Daily Dish that she’s “heard of” Jacqueline acting like that toward other people in the past, but “I’ve never seen that side of her. And now I did and she looks like a stranger to me. It’s not somebody that I want to be around. I really don’t. I have a lot going on and I want to stay away from negative people that don’t want good for me.”
Hmm. So, does Teresa not remember the fight that caused her to flee Jacqueline’s home just weeks before this Vermont trip from hell took place?! #GoldfishMemory
So, why does Teresa think Jacqueline was so upset with her? She claims that her newfound relationship with sister in law Melissa Gorga is probably the root cause. When asked by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live whether this was true, Teresa sidestepped a bit, but ultimately admitted, “Yeah, sort of, yes. I mean, I can get more into it, but yes…”
She also claims that the drama triangle started long before Teresa came home from “camp,” asserting that “Jacqueline wanted Melissa to take her side and when she didn’t, that’s when it all backfired. Like, before I came home.” So, Jacqueline needed a soldier and didn’t get one in Melissa? Is that what I’m hearing???
For now, Teresa is pretty much done with Jacqueline and her endless histrionics, although she’s leaving the door open for future reconciliation (you know, that same “open door” she extended to Rosie Pierri and Kathy Wakile!). She says, “I guess time will tell. Right now she’s not someone I want to be around. You don’t treat people that way you really don’t.”
Teresa also intimates that viewers will understand more about this Melissa/Teresa/Jacqueline dynamic at the reunion. “Watch the reunion and then you’ll see [what I have to say].”
