Teresa Giudice started off Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey with a bang. She told people that Evan Goldschneider, Jackie Goldschneider’s husband, was cheating while at the gym. Unfortunately, Teresa chose to share this information at Evan’s birthday party.
When Teresa refused to reveal her source for the rumor, her RHONJ co-star Jackie made an analogy about Teresa’s daughter, Gia Giudice. Jackie said that she heard that Gia snorted cocaine in the bathroom at parties. Jackie doesn’t regret her choice of making an analogy about Gia.
And Teresa won’t apologize for spreading the rumor, stating that, “It’s not like I made it up. It was out there.” So, where are the receipts, Teresa?
Now another RHONJ “OG” is weighing in on the controversy. Caroline Manzo, who departed the show ahead of Season 6, told US Weekly, “Guess what? Two wrongs don’t make a right.” Teresa is going to be thrilled that her long-time enemy is jumping into this conversation. Teresa is still pissed that Caroline didn’t have her back against her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, back in the day.
Caroline said, “I don’t know what would possess [Teresa] to say something like that. I don’t care how much you dislike someone.” The RHONJ alum also stated that the scenario was “possibly” egged on by the show’s producers. Still, Caroline said that Teresa should know the difference between “what’s right and what’s wrong.” Teresa is a bit fuzzy about exactly where that line is.

Caroline also had some choice words for Jackie. “There are plenty of analogies you could have chosen without bringing Gia into it. Gia — from what I’ve seen and what I have known from that kid, historically– is a great kid,” Caroline shared.
“She is wise beyond her years. … Why would you come back with something like that to someone that’s not there to defend herself, to someone who’s not involved in anything, and to someone who’s only 20 years old,” the former Manzo’d With Children star remarked.
She continued, “This is a kid that’s in college, that’s going out into the workforce, and that lives forever. You’ll Google ‘Gia Giudice’ and that comment will come up,” Caroline explained. “Whether she’s guilty or not of it, she becomes suspect of it.”

Caroline said that Jackie and Teresa should have held on to their “integrity” and “dignity” during their argument. This duo can’t lose their dignity and integrity if it wasn’t there in the first place. “They both have to be responsible for what they said and did. Shame on both of them!” Caroline added.
During the most recent episode of RHONJ, Jackie and Teresa were finally in the same place together. Teresa remarked that she only hangs out with confident ladies. Jackie asked Teresa if she developed her confidence in jail. Way to preserve your dignity and integrity, ladies!
