The feuding Housewives defend themselves in a special episode.

Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice

Season four of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been quite the journey for Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice, who have seen their relationship go from iffy at best to downright hostile and pretty much over. In fact, things get so heated in this Sunday's episode that the fallout necessitated a special episode of Watch What Happens Live that's been pre-taped with the frenemy 'Wives doing interviews separately to avoid any unecessary explosions.

In these two exclusive clips, both ladies point fingers at one another for negative tabloid articles, and Caroline still believes Teresa is lying by saying she's had no hand in the magazine negativity or from her cookbook. "I'm a very laid back person, but if you F with me and you lie to my face, I'm done," Caroline said.



In her portion of the interview, Teresa fires back, saying that Caroline "thinks she's better than everyone else. She's definitely not better than me. She's an older woman, I have respect for her, I'm not going to go at her."



In the end, this season has taken its toll on Caroline. "No one should behave like this at any age. It's wrong, it's ugly, but it is what it is and you know what, we're human and we have good days and bad days. I can say without question, season 4 to me is a seasno I'd like to burn."

Be sure to tune into RHONJ this Sunday to watch the explosive episode, and then WWHL right after to see the reactions.

I realize it's a little late to respond however I'm not sure where else to place this comment. I am a fan of most of your shows and I can tell you it's time to shut Jersey down.  It almost physically hurts to watch anymore.  Teresa is fake and trying to brand herself, so is Kathy and Melissa. I don't care how nice Kathy and Melissa appear now they have nothing but try capitalize on this show and I'm tired of watching it.   Jacquelyn is pathetic and the Manso's are self righteous and bullies.  I realize by watching all the shows including the other Housewives shows that yes sometimes I like some people and other weeks I like other people but with this show I just can't bring myself to watch anymore.  I've held this in for awhile and I don't know if you want my opinion but here it is.  I hope the rest of your shows continue to be successful.  It appears you have worked hard for years to get your success.  Mazel.

I have even more respect for Caroline after tonight's show. I know she has said she is not happy about who she was this season but your have kept it bottled up. Your husband and kids stand by you and that's all that matters. Teresa is garbage. She is the bully not Caroline. She has been a disgrace on his show. Caroline I wish you and your family nothing but happines. PS your hair looks GREAT!!!

The one thing I love about Caroline is her blunt honest, and the love and loyalty she shows to her family and friends.  It is very evident.  What I love about her is that she wants her kids to be who they want to be.  She supports their endeavors.  And yet, Teresa. . . . . lord.   I hate the fact that Teresa does not get what a true friend is.  

 

However, I wonder if it really is like Jacklyn said to cover up what is really inside of her.  Granted I am not a Teresa fan, but I feel sorry for her.  Her life truly is miserable.  She has to go to the extremes (i.e. forcing her husband to do her in the vineyard) to keep a marriage that is already rocky.  I truly hope she wakes up soon to realize that her family will be there for her and that they have been there for her.  I truly hope she wakes up to apologize from the heart to all those that she has hurt.  Because she has hurt so many people.

SoTeresa is going to blame everyone for the negative press she gets, without realizing she may be causing it on her own. Sometimes the blame is on you!

I think Theresa is losing it.  What does she mean by the fact the Caroline is an "older" woman?   Does she think that makes her look better?   After this past Sunday's episode where she seemed to forget that Chris invited them on this "business" trip.  BUSINESS,  they ones that did not have a lot to loss on their "vacation".    Chris was there to work.   She is such a ditz.

omg Caroline. The comments in the cookbook were MINISCULE compared to the hatred you have spewed toward Teresa and her family.

 and isn't Caroline blaming Teresa??  Isn't Caroline blaming Teresa for everything?  Are we watching the same show here?  Let's be fair....it's not all on Teresa!!!

 @simeon I so agree.  The things that Caroline has said are HUGE in comparison to the things T has said.  Caroline has shown that she is no friend by repeating things (I don't believe T said ALL that) said to her.  Caroline has brought to public Melissa's past, said things about T's marriage that no one should get away with, she is an unworthy friend.  Even IF T has said all that a trusted friend would not repeat it.  Whether fans of RHONJ like it or not, Teresa is the star and money maker of the show.  Caroline has caused nothing but trouble and it stems from the fact that T is a self-made millionairess.

 You have no idea what is going on between Dina, Caroline, and Theresa off camera. It's a much bigger issue than just disrespecting her children in her cook book and magazines. Theresa is straight up in denial about ever doing a single thing wrong and I think that is what Caroline is mad about the most regarding that. She did not even give a real apology all she said was "Um...I don't see how my cook book offended you guys and yeah I really don't see it but i'm sorry that you guys feel bad." She never once apologized for actually putting it in there. Randomly attacking Chris in her family cookbook is a no no to Caroline as you can see how much she loves her children. It doesn't help that she also sells her friends out in magazines for money to help their financial situation.

 @Weare217  @simeon ohh god. Dina stated numerous times that it has nothing to do with Teresa. Its been said that Dina and Caroline do not get along because Dina was suppose to have jaime's wedding on her show Dina's Party. Caroline went behind her back and had it on RHONJ. Nobody knows for sure, but again Dina Stated it has NOTHING to do with Teresa. She also stated that Caroline "Never supported any of her ventures" Per Dina's OWN words.
