Teresa Giudice Thinks Caroline Manzo & Jacqueline Laurita Are “Evil People” & Would Return To Real Housewives Of New Jersey “Because They Need The Money”

Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.

Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.

In an interview with E! News, Teresa threw shade right out of the gate, saying, “Maybe if they both come back it’s because they need the money. She then insisted, “But, I mean, whatever, bring it on. I could give two sh*ts if they come back. Do I want to reconcile being friends with them again? No. They’re both evil people and I really don’t want anything to do with evil people. I don’t, but if I have to give them a piece of my mind I will.”

This could really be what the show needs: some authentic beef. Let’s go, Andy Cohen. Let’s move past a season of talking about cake, nicknames, and faux businesses and watch a season full of genuine drama.

The old Teresa only came out when her nemesis Kim DePaola aka Kim D showed up. Otherwise, she got along with the actual cast members and was all about the namaste. Good for Teresa, but that’s not what we want to watch. If Caroline and Jacqueline were on the show, Teresa would be hurling grammatically incorrect insults left and right.

Teresa declared, “They’re just nasty people. Like the stuff that Caroline said about me, it’s like for what? I’ve never done anything to her. Her jumping on the bandwagon with my family and trying to be all buddy buddy with them and it’s just like what are you trying to prove? Now she doesn’t even talk to them anymore. So it’s like she just did it for the show and she’s just a money hungry bitch.”

The mother of four theorized that Caroline’s “hand was in the pot of trying to take Joe [Giudice] and I down.” She continued, “I don’t know. Something must be going on.”

Then things took an interesting turn when Teresa referenced Caroline’s longtime feud with her sister Dina. She said, “When you trash your own family, you’ll do anything for money. If you can’t even make up with your own family, of course she’s going to trash me. Like I care. She’s nothing to me.” Did Teresa just forget about the years of feuding with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga? But I guess she’s saying that since she ended up on good terms with her family that it’s a different situation? That’s a slightly flawed analogy there.

Teresa added, “I always respected her because she was Dina’s sister. Now I have no respect for her and she said the nastiest things about me. She acts high and mighty. She’s low and f*cking mighty.” See what I mean? “Low and f*cking mighty,” is a meme-worthy line. This is the kind of material that we could be blessed with with Caroline and Jacqueline come back next season.

Teresa insisted, “I really don’t care.” Obviously Teresa does care, but she also gets how this works by now and she sees that this could be big for the show. Teresa added, “She said the nastiest things about me. I dare her to come back. Now she’s hanging out with my best friend’s husband. It’s my husband’s best friend. Always trying to stay in the mix.”
