people including Teresas family say she wanted the show to herself. So untrue what she wanted was her family business to not be aired on national TV. When Dina and Caraline started to have problems what happened. Dina left the show. Why, because respectable italians keep there family drama between family. I think the show has gone down hill since her family has been casted. If i want to watch family fights on TV i would watch Jerry Springer. In the end Teresa was trying to protect the privacy of her family. Anyone remember Teresa throwing Andy because of Daniels comments about her family. Its obvious she was always trying to protect the personal problems with in her family. Kathy and melissa did not care what the nation saw, then blamed everything on Teresa. Melissa needed a platform for her career. She is heartless and greedy. She knew there were problems and they would come out but she needed to put out songs. Without the show no one would have ever heard two verses of any song. Teresa your my girl, your not phony and im italian so i get you and what you stand for, apparently so does Donald Trump LOL. I dont see any other housewives from any city gettin opportunites like that. Girl just stay fab and blow all your haters kisses.
