During her Watch What Happens Live special on Valentine's Day, Patti Stanger was doling out love advice for Bravo couples. In true Patti fashion, words were hardly minced, and when it came to Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe, Patti said that she thought T should get consider dumping Joe. In fact, here's what she said, verbatim: "Ugh. Teresa, you know that I got your back, you know that I love you, but this is a bad dude. Get rid of him -- and call me." Watch it here:
Needless to say, Teresa isn't exactly thrilled with The Millionaire Matchmaker's humble opinion, and on Friday she decided to hit back on Twitter. With a seemingly calm and loving demeanor, T tweeted:

Patti was quick to respond, replying directly to the tweet saying that she was only hoping for the best for T and the family:

But we'll leave it up to you: Team Patti or Team Teresa (or a little of both)?
I really wonder if Joe is cheating on Teresa because in one episode he called her a bitch and he kept trying to move away from her. I do agree with Teresa though you can't judge anyone without walking in their shoes.
I wholeheartedly agree with Teresa. One shouldn't judge until they have walked in their shoes. I really like the way she handled it.
joes makin the money again now that Sandy hit, T will stay with him for the cash, but he is a midget of a man. He has smallness issues. He is punk, and only knows how to bully women. He does not love T, he is a cheat, through and through, In life and his business contacts. Patti was right in what she said. T needs to find someone that will show her what a real man is. Kind and loving, not a name caller and a drunk. love patti
T can't get any better than Joe. She's a horrible human being and any "good guy" would run for the hills. They're stuck with each other and they deserve each other. Perception is everything to Teresa. I'm sure they have their own "arrangements" and they both (and Gia) know about it.
I love Teresa first off. So, with that said, I too would have been a lil hurt but would have ignored Patti's comment. Patti is one that is pretty honest with her opinion and I highly respect that in a person. Plus she didn't say this to hurt Teresa in any way. Just an opinion. If Teresa is happy with Joe then more power to her. I'm good with that.
Sorry folks but Andy asked Patti the question re Teresa and Joe and she answered it. Teresa's name would not have been mentioned if Andy didn't bring it up. Teresa does not revolve around Patti's world. So get mad at Andy and not Patti. Patti gave her opinion and anyone who watches the show sees how Joe treats Teresa. They are not honest people so in my opinion, Teresa and Joe both deserve each other!
All hail to the T for being so nice about it. Patti has some nerve to say that to a married woman with children that did not ASK for advice. Patti is a matchmaker NOT a marriage counselor. That is Joe and Teresa's marriage and NOBODY has a right to interfere. Especially someone that has not done so well in the love or marriage department herself.
Take it up with Andy...he was the one who asked the question. Also check Patti's bio...she is an expert!
I agree with Patti 100%.I think Joe is abusive towards Teresa in the way that he speaks to her,the name calling,aways telling her to shut up,encouraging her to NOT make up with her brother.These are classic signs of abuse,isolating the woman from her family,telling her she doesn't need anyone but him (Joe has said this to Tre many times on the show).I am not a fan of Tre's but I do wish her well and hope she gets away from Joe for her kids sake,if not for her own.
work in progress for how many years? just give it up! Patti is no dummy, sometimes is better to be alone than to keep bad company.
@silently1 I was just watching the top 20 reunion shows on bravo, in one episode of a rhonj reunion the girls are all talking over each other and Andy, so he yells shut the fuck up to all these women? That's cool right? That's ok, no, the point is eveyone has their less than perfect moments. Joe Giudice's is rough around the edges to say the least, and his choice of angry words is limited, but in all honesty, every Wall Street money maker and soccer coach I know is not so different, if you catch the times they say inappropriate things only, that's who they become to you, but when you know the whole person it's can very different. We have no right to assume anything about their life from the few moments bravo allows us to see.
No one can tell anyone else who to love. Patti is successful at what she does and I honestly believe she didn't mean her comments to be mean spirited. However, having said all of that, it is none of her business and she's never been married and is in no position to judge anyone else. Teresa and Joe are still married and they obviously prefer to stay together. My God, didn't Teresa put up with enough from Caroline, Jacqueline, Melissa and Kathy all last season. Give this poor girl a break. All she's trying to do is make sure her family is financially secure - for those other "women" to attacked, demean and bully her for the past two years is beyond any normal person's comprehension.
patti was on wendy Williams today and said she is not engaged it is just a ring and that she is living with him even though she tells her clients not to mve in until they are engaged. now she says its ok for her because she got a ring, not engaged just a ring . in other words patti makes up the roles as she goes and what good for the goose is not good for the gander. she is full of it and I don't know why people think she has some special secret about men or that she knows something everyone else doesn't, she is just a 50year old UN_married woman with a big mouth, and foul mouth, that thinks she knows it all. if Teresa didn't ask for her opinion maybe she shouldn't have gave it.
Teresa , That's why patti is single.... No man would put up with her bull, she's lonely...
s_shelaghFirst of all she has a man and secondly she don't put up with anybody's bull crap and she's not a push over.#Get your facts straight before commenting on something you don't know.
@diamondmine86 That's great. Patties engaged again.. I'm so happy for her... I wish lots of love, forever and ever... Patti, don't take another heart shaped ring.... Oh yes diamond, I am not watching patti, I should not have voiced my opinion... I'm sorry...
s_shelagh And some women will "put up with" anything to keep a man. Patti is clearly not one of those women. Sometimes being "lonely" is better than being disrespected and unappreciated.
mystrece s_shelagh I agree with you, but I must say, "Being ALONE is better is than being disrespected and unappreciated", not LONELY. Single does not mean lonely, for there there are plenty of married women who are LONELY.
s_shelagh Why do we always think that the reason why a woman is single is because no one will put up with her "bull"? Ever thought that sometime a woman is single because she does not up with bull crap? And Patti does have a man. I dont think she is bitter at all. Most viewers do think Theresa can do better than Joe, Patti is simply saying that the rest of us are thinking.
I agree with Theresa that all relationships are a work in progress. No one relationship is perfect, all we can do is strive for the best. They both seem to make valid points. If theresa was my sister/friend, I would say dump Joe. At the same time, I would be wrong because who am I to tell her that her hubby is not worthy of her?
@Sheila0729 Unfortunately, I don't see any progress in Teresa's relationship. She needs to move on.
Sheila, I agree. Joe is abusive in so many ways. Little girls learn from what they see every day growing up, and invariably choose a spouse like their daddies.
Teresa is doing NO favors for her young daughters by teaching them that's it's ok for a man to dominate them, control them and bad-mouth their family members to their faces and in front of their own children someday!
Those poor girls. Mommy is setting a very bad example of them to follow.
SarahGDeeb Sheila0729 Perhaps you ladies should be concerned about your own homes and get out of Teresa's.. Can someone say judgemental?????? ijs
lol.. I do know why they have this little blog , but thanks for reminding me. I'll keep that in mind next time..ya know?
these were not 'disses', these were opinions! and Teresa is right! every relationship is a work in progress!
Rocky_Grundle If that is what people like you who like this women feel about relationships.......I'm so glad not to be on your planet.......
