Teresa Giudice Says She’s Not Trying To “Destroy” Melissa Gorga On RHONJ; Glad They’re Finally Getting Along!


Earlier this week a media report came out accusing Teresa Giudice of plotting to destroy Melissa Gorga this season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Since filming has almost wrapped for the fifth season and the cast – including Teresa and Melissa – seem to be getting along and working on their relationships, we had our doubts about the story. 

Not, of course, because we think Teresa is an amazingly kind individual who would never, ever plot to ruin her sister-in-law's reputation, but because the image conscious Mrs. Giudice has her own reputation to protect. Disputing rumors that she is out to undo all of their family therapy sessions, Teresa insists she has no ill-will towards Melissa and is happy the families are getting along! 

"My brother and Melissa and I have been in a good place for a long time now," Teresa tells RumorFix. I'm thinking Teresa's definition of 'long time' and mine are different, but she's probably on reality TV time! She continues, "I would never do anything to hurt my family, ever. I don’t give two craps about rumors about Melissa’s past, as long as she treats my brother and my parents well, we’re good!”


“I judge people on who they are now, not who they used to be except for Danielle Staub, that prostitution whore!," Teresa continues. "You saw me on Celebrity Apprentice, that’s how I am. I don’t plot against anyone. I just live my life which keeps me busy enough, believe me!”

Teresa says throughout filming the families have been spending quality time together and everyone is getting along. “My brother and Melissa just came over to dinner the other night with my mom to taste some of my new Fabulicious Foods–which are so so good, we get them shipped over from Italy!” Yes – T-Fabulous is pimping a new product, ready-made gourmet Italian treats! And Teresa cites all her new business, along with motherhood, as the reasons she just doesn't have time for fighting anymore! 

“My life is blessed right now. I would never do anything to change that," Teresa maintains. "I will tell you though that like in every city, there are plenty of people who want to get on the show and try to bring drama to get themselves cast. I have nothing to do with them. As long as they don’t bring the drama my way, we’re good!” 

Teresa is referring to allegations that she is "good friends" with Penny Drossos, who happens to be married to Johnny Karagiorgis, currently at the center of some major RHONJ drama. "This lady Penny has been trying to get cast on RHONJ for two years, and Teresa doesn’t even know her!” an insider told RumorFix. Adding that Penny is intentionally creating drama between the two families in the hopes of bolstering her chances of getting on the show ala Kim D.

"Penny was talking trash to Melissa," claiming Penny and Teresa are friends plotting against her, "but once she saw she couldn’t get the reality star riled up, the woman went after Teresa." Unfortunately it didn't work. Teresa “flipped out because she doesn’t stand for people lying about her — she stands up for herself.”

Our source told us that Teresa and Penny had an acquaintanceship through mutual friends, but do not know each other well. When Teresa and Melissa were at odds, Teresa did speak with Penny but apparently nothing substantial came of it. Penny has been spotted at social events with Teresa and other RHONJ characters.
