Teresa and Joe Giudice
Fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey found themselves with their jaws on the floor last night seeing Joe Giudice step away from the dinner table to make a phone call, resulting in some suspicion about who was on the other end, and also him referring to Teresa Giudice by some unprintable words. It turns out, Teresa was just as shocked seeing the footage for the first time.

In a very candid blog post, Teresa opens up with a reflective statement, saying:

From flipping a table to giving birth to going through bankruptcy to a million other things, I've done a lot and seen a lot from my family and friends on camera over the last few years. I thought nothing could surprise me anymore. And then I got the call.



She says that a magazine approached her asking about the incident, which she had no idea about aside from her interaction with Joe when she walked over. But then she saw the tapes and it sunk in. "Once I got a copy and watched it, I was sick. I felt like I'd been kicked in the stomach. It has not been a good couple of weeks," T writes. She says that she hoped it wouldn't air, but given that she signed up for a reality show, there wasn't much she could do.



"Kind of like that other promise: for better or for worse. Welcome to the 'worse,'" she wrote.

Teresa continued, saying Joe "doesn't remember" calling her those names, and that he's never said them before or since. Read T's full post here.
