Teresa Giudice

There was a blowout of epic proportions on Real Housewives of New Jersey last night between Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo (in case you missed it, watch here), and much of the anger stemmed from an earlier conversation Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita were having about how T was in the dark when her cousin and sis-in-law Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga signed on to become Housewives themselves. But was she?



Teresa and Joe Giudice were guests on Watch What Happens Live directly after the explosive episode, and Andy Cohen led into the discussion during the after show when Teresa said she "didn't know the family was going to come on." Andy was quick to retort, saying that he and Teresa "discussed it months before, this was a conversation that was going on ... that we were talking to them."

And while Teresa agreed she got the heads-up from Andy, her family never really told her about the process, which is what set her off. "They never called me. They were my family, you told me first ... my boss told me first before my own family told me," she said with a hint of sadness.

Andy then shifted the conversation to the infamous incident where Teresa shoved Andy into his chair while he was restraining her from going after Danielle Staub. And while Andy says people constantly ask him about it, there's really not much to it.

"They act like it was this big thing. After it happened, I forgot that it happened that day ... The truth of the matter is you pushed me, big deal," Andy said. While Teresa agreed it was no big deal, the background to what caused her major reunion blowup will soon be revealed.

"In two weeks ... everyone's going to get their answer to that whole thing, why I was trying to get to Danielle," Teresa said.
