Teresa Giudice and Taylor Swift finally found something in common — no, they both aren't smitten with Tom Hiddleston, but rather have each embraced the philosophy of shaking off any hate that comes their way. With Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey officially underway, the Garden State mama is opening up about her current view when it comes to dealing with any criticism people might have for her.
"Do I have to prove anything [to the haters]? No, I don't!" Teresa told The People's Couch pals Brandy Howard and Julie Goldman during the RHONJ premiere livestream event. "I just care about me. And, really, my family, That's all I care about is my family."
The Season 7 premiere focused, in part, on Teresa's return home after spending 11 months at Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut in connection with multiple counts of fraud which she pleaded guilty to in 2014. With that now behind her, her focus remains on her four daughters. "Thank God we're healthy. And who I have to prove anything to is my daughters, that's it. Only them. And being the best mommy I could be and that's it."
