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.”
In her blog, Teresa shares that she’d hoped for a nice relaxing getaway to Vermont. Instead, there was “drama, drama and more drama!” Having made up with Jacqueline before the trip, Teresa hoped her frenemy would behave herself. “But everything that happened with her on this episode made me start to question her again. Whenever there was drama on this episode, Jacqueline was involved,” she admits. Too true.
I know many are criticizing Teresa Giudice for not wanting a relationship with her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. Plus, she was super cold when they showed up at the book signing. Teresa can be polarizing, but it does seem like she has a legitimate reason to not want to be around Rosie and Kathy.
Teresa has a ton going on right now – she is basically a single mom to her four daughters since Joe Giudice is in prison. She’s trying hard to hustle and provide for her family. And Teresa only wants to be a part of situations that are positive. So, if she doesn’t view interacting with her cousins as positive, that makes sense. Tre also got more specific about what Kathy and Rosie did (and didn’t do) to offend her so greatly.
Teresa admits that without Joe, who is serving 41 months in Fort Dix Correctional Facility, their family feels “incomplete” and that being a single mom to 4 girls is overwhelming. “It’s hard, we are just doing the best that we can, getting through it day by day… ”
Ever since Jacqueline Laurita shared her family’s financial difficulties during the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, I can’t help feeling like she’s determined to stay on this show. Don’t get me wrong, I would feel the same way, but I feel like she’s just such a shit stirrer, especially when it comes to Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s family drama. She seems like more of an instigator than a peacemaker since she has no qualms interfering and criticizing Teresa and Melissa for how they handle familial issues.
Now, Jacqueline has taken it upon herself to be the crusader for Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. I know she is legitimately friends with them and cares about their well-being, but I feel like she is always riling them up to talk shit about Teresa and adding fuel to the fire. Sure, a big part of being on reality TV is talking about your feelings to create story line, but Kathy and Rosie are not even Housewives, so it’s a little much for me.
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
