Teresa Giudice has news for the paper claiming she snubbed a 6-year-old New Jersey boy diagnosed with cancer: You’re wrong.
“I've said it many times: one of the best things about being on TV is getting to use your ‘celebrity’ to help other people,” the New Jersey Housewife blogs on her site. “I get so many charity requests and it breaks my heart not to be able to do them all. I really really wish I could! Not being able to do every single charity event that asks me has nothing to do with money and everything to do with time.”
Days prior, The New York Daily News claimed Teresa, as well as Caroline Manzo, ignored requests to attend a local Halloween party benefiting Christopher DiMartino and his family, who lost their home and are struggling to finance their son’s chemotherapy. Why the diss? The article states Teresa and Caroline demanded an appearance fee. Go get ‘em, T.
“It's sad to me that the Daily News would print a story with false accusations from a friend of a friend of a local guy about how I demand an appearance fee for charity work. I don't know if they tried to contact me or how, but I never received any information about their benefit, so me turning them down is completely untrue,” explains the dedicated NephCure supporter. “I'm praying for little Christopher though, and I hope their fundraising efforts are a huge success! God Bless.”

I am sure you do all you can do for charity events. Thank you so much for explaining this latest untruth about you and Caroline.
I'm sorry about the paper, but I really cannot get the reunion out of my mind when did you start making animal sounds when you did not have an answer or the courage to say you did not understand the question? There's no shame in asking for someone to repeat a question it was humiliating to see you act so childishly.
I think it is careless for a well known newspaper to print a story without merit. To not call you to comment on the story is irresponsible. A tale told from a friend of a friend of a local guy ( a source) is slanderous at best. Such a newspaper is comparable to a rag magazine. I personally don't believe that you or Caroline would intentionally shun any child's charity in need. I realize that both of you have busy lives and especially you Teresa that has four small children to tend to. I don't buy that you would charge a appearance fee to do a charity event nor do I think Caroline would also. I understand that fee's are charge for personal appearances to other venues ( clubs, malls,etc.) which is more than reasonable as most reality stars do this as work. Whether you or Caroline are dislike from the HWONJ shouldn't be a pass to justify such character assassination. I have to wonder if this so call friend that told this story has a gripe with you and even through in Caroline's name so not to be suspected. Either way I think it is shameful to use a child's plight in such a matter whether to get even or even for the sale of newspapers. I understand that you don't normally address these type of things but I am glad that you took the time to clarify this situation and I do hope that the fundraiser for the child was successful also...
Teresa Giudice, you wouldn't have gone anyway if Caroline Manzo would have been there, you'd want all the attention to yourself
Good for you for setting the records staight. Makes me wonder which of the nuts fed the lie to the paper.
@Sunny11 Must be all those people who feed Teresa with all that dirty gossip that she loves to repeat.
Unfortunately Tre you've lost all credibility, so even though what you say might be true, because of your inability to admit to ANYTHING your word pretty much means nothing.
Teresa Always has to watch what she says, that why she comes across unsure when she speaks. She doesn't want her parents hurt. There is alot that she could say to really hurt her brother and Melissa (like Joe rape charges, Melissa Shoplifting, Melissa being gay and etc.) but she doesn't. They came on the show to hurt her and they did.
I am proud of Teresa, when they file the bankruptcy (which they withdrew) she went to work to provide for her children. I have had to work all my life for my children. I only wish some magazine would pay me for a story I would still be talking.
zzz300 Geovana MeganNYC I understand what you mean, Once her family came on the show it went downhill. Melissa has told so many lies to cover up her past in order to put out this perfect no wrong persona. She has said so many things along with her husband to put Teresa in a bad light with the help of Kathy, Caroline and Jacqeline. Teresa is constantly on the defense now having to watch everything she says and does, unfortunately she isn't very articulate which I think gets her in trouble sometimes especially when you have 4 going at you. I wonder how any of them would fair if put in the same position. I'm sure Teresa could have reveal many things about them but she hasn't as she cares about her parents and other family members, to bad the same cannot be said about the rest of them. She's made mistakes and she has apologize and also taking responsibility to rectify her bankruptcy. I think she is doing the best she can.
@zzz300 @Geovana @MeganNYC maybe you should research why they withdrew the Bankruptcy. They weren't going to be allowed to run away from their debt.........And the idea other family members came on the show to hurt Teresa is rediculous. They were given the opportunity......it pays well and they accepted. Teresa's extreme jealousy is her problem.
Do you watch the show........Even Caroline admitted she doesn't want her family drama played out on TV, so why did Joe and Melissa bring Teresa family drama to the show. And yes I have seen why they withdrew the bankruptcy. ..........Still with 4 children Teresa didn't whine about it she went to work.....and the opportunity that Joe and Melissa received was at the cost of the family.....was it worth it????.
,,,,,,,,,,,,Caroline made a promise that she would never bring her beef with her sister onto TV. Yet it being so disgusting to her, she began to get involved in Mego and T's family fight. Even though she always states that she stays out of the gorga's family fued, that is just not true! She is constantly spinning all stories, of every fight, making T be awful, and 100% at fault. No matter what anyone says, in divorce or a family fued, it always takes two. There is always a little of fueding on each side! For C to make every single fight be T fault, that isn't even possible for anyone to be completely innocent in a family fued. The first episode the Gorga's were on, they began to sling insults at the christening, by saying, "T is a fake, don't hold our baby for the cameras, you are garbage!" Also, stunning T and Joey's father, by Joey accusing him of not giving him as much attention as T, with Joey's very loud and drama filled hystrionics of,"you are my father, you are my father,etc... Ya know what, mego could have gone to grandpa's house after dinner, after cameras were gone, and shared every last detail of the injustices that they felt were going on......Lastly, there are thousands of Real Housewives in New Jersey that have tried and would love to get on the show. Out of all of the educated, charismatic, talented, wealthy, and gorgeous women,(and there are a lot of them in NJ,) Bravo picked Mel. She had to offered something unique to get on the show, and sorry but I don't think it was her looks or her singing! Even though Mego and her sisters think she is the most beautiful HW in all of NJ,that is yet another side to a person that would like to be the center of attention, on a reality show, the narcissitic trait of being overly vain! Yet now, even though Mel came on and dumped all the dirty family laundrey on the show, C dotes on Mego saying, "they so cute!" C fights against T for Mego, as if C has amnesia or hates T so much that she has turned a blind eye to all of mego's initial antics on the show! Theresa never wanted to be dragged into such a terrible family situation to share to all of the oft times negative, worldwide, televised forem! The reason I write this blog is not so mego can say well, your giving the subject attention, so you must be fascinated by us to some degree......... No, not so, once upon a time. I love a show called the real housewives of New Jersey, and when they went to Italy, the shows were so endearing and enteretaining, they helped be get through a difficult surgery...... I am frustrated, with the very disturbing show it has turned into, and I'm not over C turning into another person, no matter how many times she says I didn't like Caroline last season, and I promise etc.... or that a cousin wants to kill another cousin, and a fun girl named Theresa had adorable girls, and a lot of charisma, and made me smile! It is all gone, and I was invested in it, and now I have had to break up with it!!!
@Nic01 @zzz300 @Geovana @MeganNYC All Teresa's problems with her cast mates could be solved if Teresa just kept her mouth shut . Sure, she's on the defensive explaining all her mean spirited comments . All she has to do is stop making rude comments and passing them off as jokes and her problems will be solved. She is so jealous she can't see straight.
EllieJ I really don't think Teresa has the time for jealousy, she is a busy mom and business woman. Mean spirited comments! The comments that she has made are a joke compare to what has been said and done to her. Double standard and hypocrisy!
@summer1964 I feel the same way, once you get caught up in so many lies theres no longer any trust.. It is an unfortunate situation but when she would rather risk and lose her own family members instead of coming clean and telling the truth it should come as no surprise that anything and everything she says will always be in doubt as to whether what she says is true or false. As the saying goes honesty is always the best policy and it's to bad that she couldnt remember that when she not only lied once but made a choice to continue to lie again and again.
So true...she is just a big liar and hypocrite....Can'ttake responsibilty or own up to anything.....Wonder what it is like to be so perfect and that EVERYONE wants to be like...Yeah right......Get over yourself...
