From spending time together on Thanksgiving to kicking off the countdown to Christmas and everything in-between, the reality TV stars shared a lot of great family pics the past few weeks. Above, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice enjoyed NYC with her girls.
When Teresa Giudice was questioned during the Real Housewives of New Jerseyreunion episodes about getting a Lexus when she got out of prison, she didn’t understand why she wouldn’t drive a Lexus because it’s not like she would drive a Ford. And even asked host Andy Cohen, “Would you drive a Ford?” and she dug a real deep hole for herself by looking down on the brand. Well, I have a feeling that she got a lot more heat for this comment than I could I have imagined because Teresa’s latest Instagram post is an ode to the Ford brand.
I totally get why people were put off by someone who went to jail for money-related crimes receiving a luxury vehicle straight out of jail, but Teresa did not seem to understand how that could come off. Well apparently she gets it now since she posted an apology on Instagram.
No one saw the truce between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga coming. They absolutely hated each for many seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, but now they seem to be a solid united front. A lot of people (mainly Jacqueline Laurita) have questioned the authenticity of their alliance, but the sisters-in-law have been insistent that their relationship is genuine and strong.
This was very clear during the reunion since the two sat on the same couch and went to bat for each other against Jacqueline. The reunion ended with the whole cast engaging in a group hug after a promise to be peaceful in the future. It seems far-fetched that a show centered around controversy between women will actually have women who are moving forward on peaceful terms, but Melissa seems very committed to that – at least when it comes to her relationship with Teresa. Her relationship with Jacqueline is a whole other story.
As someone who has written about the exploits and shenanigans of Real Housewives for many moons, Real Housewives Of New Jersey is the only show which leaves me emotionally exhausted.
On one level, it’s a nod to their ability to remain raw in front of the cameras, years after years of doom and gloom fighting. However, on the other side, their lack of self-awareness means season after season after season someone – Teresa Giudice, usually – is gonna be accused of a maelstrom of denial that the other ladies have no idea they are also wallowing in. So sometimes you need 5 Xanax – maybe 10! – to get through it.
