Teresa Giudice

Teresa reflects on her daughter's Baptism, and responds to Danielle's accusations.

Hello Sweethearts!
What a fabulous episode! Audriana's Big Fat Italian Christening! I loved reliving that day. What a special day. There is nothing better than celebrating milestones with your family and friends around you.

Remember that first episode of the season when Danielle hired a priest to talk about how she was a changed woman and that none of us go to church? I think we see how that turned out…

We are Roman Catholic and a baby's christening — dedicating their life to God — is such a special, joyous event. I am so honored I was able to share it with you guys. Of course it was over the top – it's a once in a lifetime event! But before any of the haters jump on me about it, realize it was filmed by Bravo at the Brownstone and planned by Dina. They obviously all took great care of me. Didn't Dina and I do a fantastic job planning it? Did you see how the lace on the cake matched the lace on Audriana’s dress? My absolute favorite was the Marie Antoinette serving sushi off her dress. How amazing was that?

And Christopher was a champ. He's a great guy and I think he definitely continue at the Brownstone and take over for his daddy one day (maybe soon… Caroline wants you home more Albert!)

OK, so to answer a few of your questions. The christening was at St. John's Cathedral in Paterson, NJ. My dress was Mandalay. The vintage baby carriage Audriana was in is Dina's. Her mama gave it to her as a gift when Lexi was born. Our first dance with Audriana was to "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride.

One last note: Dina, I love you like a sister. You are a great godmother. Jacqueline, I loved seeing you and Ashley share a special moment, and Caroline crying... I'm so blessed to great friends. Even though we're not family, we're all family!

You said you always have a first dance at your daughter's Christening. Yet, Caroline said she'd never seen such a thing. Either you not right or she was never at the other's Christenings.

Daneille, the bull? Are you kidding, next to you, she is a gentle lamb. You looked like a piranha looking for her next meal when you were outside of the car she was in......that freaked me out. You are NOT the girl you claim to be. Enough said.

I love the show and i love what you and your family bring to it. Sorry for joe, but glad he is ok. Your daughter sleeping at the birthday party was so funny. She was so cute saying "No i don't want to" My Husband and i were cracking up. I love that all of your husbands are on there more and more. My Husband thinks Joe is so funny.

First off i think your house is BEAUTIFULLL and of coarse Danielle will throw salt in the game look at her flowering in her front yard not to mention the homie cheat attire in her home. Your family is great and Gia makes the show just keep up the good work and stay true to your friends thats what count

Theresa, I doubt you will get this but if you do I wanted to comment on Joe's accident...I too got a DUI for the same thing. It was raining, I was coming home my car hydro planed and hit a tree. My arm went through my window and got sliced through. I had no cell so i ran home to call the police, I was down the street from my house, and I was in so much pain I took some shots of alcohol as soon as I got home. I wasn't thinking and it was So stupid cause I wasn't drinking before but nobody would know because no one saw me. So my point is I totally understand what happened to Joe, I am so sorry for not just him but your whole family. I'm sure you all will be fine regardless of the outcome. Love, love love you and the other ladies.(except Danielle)

Do you not have enough problems in your life to keep you from talking about Danielle? You really make me want to stop watching the show! How can you file bankrupt and then take your entire family to Italy. Another thing, I thought it was very selfish of you to ask Caroline to watch your less than well behaved children. Your parents had been watching them the entire time! Did you for get that Caroline and Albert were on vaca too? Ugh!!! You frustrate me to no end!

I totally agree. I seem to remember Danielle running away and you running behind her Teresa. I like you, but I don't like some things I see you do. We are not bullies in elementary school. Danielle does have the right to speak up for herself.

The world is going to hell in a handbasket and you people are fighting and bickering back and forth, majoring in the minoirs. Get a grip!

Oh my gosh I laughed so hard when Joe said he was going to go King Kong if any more pictures were taken. He speaks my language! I can tell he's under a lot of stress and you deserve accolades for trying to keep everything running at home and keeping the kids happy. Good luck.

Breathtaking christening !! The detail that was given to the christening was simply beautiful. Loved the dance with your baby, and then all your girls. I'm thinking the baby is looking more and more like her sister Gabriella-little beauties all of them!! No need to defend yourself about anything THAT ONE says, no one with a brain listens or believes her. We all laugh at her, hope she leaves and Dina comes back.

Lauren R.. I just wanted to say I agree with you 100%.. I'm not condoning Danielle's past behavior but at some point people need to move on and stop with all this crazy mess. Teresa's made her look tame. I think everyone if your honest you have to call it the same way, otherwise your either a family member or just to young in years to know or see the difference or be able to see and comprehend.. I'm surprised bad weather hasnt been blamed on Danielle yet.. I did blog on Jacquline's blog that hopefully we see or hear at the reunion show why they hate her so much..

I not harsh about teresa and Joe's financial mess only when I see that they will end up right where they started in the same mess because Teresa cant handle not spending money on things they cant afford and not to mention all the people that they actually hurt filing it could have all been avoided if she just could have stop being so over the top and if Joe could actually say the words NO you cant have it. I thought she was going to have a panic attack when she couldnt find the Chanel store although she seems to have gotten lost for a minute and had a Kelly moment when she ran up on it almost smashing her head in the glass, I thought she might cry when she thought it was closed and I know Joe was probably praying the whole time Oh God please let it be closed.. I don;t get it either...

We love to hear Joe speak...I hope you dont get insulted but we miss the Sapronos so much..not for the crime...we loved hearing the cast speak...Joe so reminds me of the show! THAT IS A COMPLEMENT! When he was saying he was getting sick on the gandola made me and my son laugh so much! He is hilarious 'WITH ALL DO RESPECT" hahahaha ...we also love hearing Milanea speak ...she has a little raspy voice like my daughter did when she was that age. She reminds me of my daughter so much. My husband was in the kitchen and was not watching but listening to the show and he turned around and said the same...sounds like our daughter! LOVE ALL THE CLOTHES YOU DRESS YOUR DAUGHTERS IN! You can never wear enough bling for me!!!

Just watched the YouTube video of you on The View. A big fat congratulations to you for keeping your composure in the face of four people badgering you, sometimes all at once. If you were my daughter, I'd be very proud of you. Aw heck, I'm proud of you anyway.

Everyone that presumes Joe was drunk....this was addressed last season during See What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and when Tamara was on his show (the RHWOC was running on Bravo). She was with Teresa and Joe and others that evening during her visit to NYC and she said that Joe was NOT drinking and how bad she felt for him. They were driving back from NYC when this ACCIDENT happened. Chris you are right - everyone needs to back-off; it's like the lyric's from Joe Walsh' song - everyone likes dirty laundry. Joe was not drunk; how many of the bloggers out there have been at the wheel, driving for a long time or late and almost fell asleep at the wheel. Joe was not drunk!!!

I agree. Eventhough I don't agree with Danielle taking her daughter to the gynecologist on T.V. , it was refreshing to know that she at least has SOME sense. I was diagnosed as having the HPV virus a couple of years ago and now have to go to my gynecologist every 6 months to have biopsies done to check for cancer. I wish there was more education on this subject when I was growing up. I am glad it was discussed on national t.v. so now there will be more awareness.

Well where do I start? Not worried about the money, it comes and goes. You seem like a fantastic mom, you have a beautiful home and family, great friends,more than most could ever ask for. Your materialistic and shallow self is getting harder and harder watch. You should really show your daughters there really is more important things in life than Chanel and Juicy couture. Some manners and alittle respect will come in handy someday.

P.S. Could your so called wonderful trip to Italy have been more annoying and painful to watch?? Tylenol Please???????

I'm an Italian Jersey girl and I live a few towns over in Paramus. I just watched y0ur interview on the view and I'm disgusted by those bastardi marcio! You handled them with class and answered their questions eliquently. They looked like like snobs and bullies. Also, btw...ignore the post from religious person who claims there is no Pergatory. Too many people put down the Roman Catholic Religion these days. I'm going to Italy for the first time in October; watching you guys there is getting me excited. Hang tough, ciao Bella, Suzy from paramus. ;-)

Hi Teresa, Watched you guys last night in the Italy episode. I liked it but you need to slow it down a bit and take some time to smell the roses. You rushed to run to store as soon as you were in Venice. You can always shop at home. You had all the parents and the family there enjoy them. I realize though that they edit and cut up alot of the show and we don't see everything. So hopefully you spent some time with the parents and the family on your trip.

There are many references to purgatory in scripture- here is just one: Matt. 5:26,18:34; Luke 12:58-59 – Jesus teaches us, “Come to terms with your opponent or you will be handed over to the judge and thrown into prison. You will not get out until you have paid the last penny.” The word “opponent” (antidiko) is likely a reference to the devil (see the same word for devil in 1 Pet. 5:8) who is an accuser against man (c.f. Job 1.6-12; Zech. 3.1; Rev. 12.10), and God is the judge. If we have not adequately dealt with satan and sin in this life, we will be held in a temporary state called a prison, and we won’t get out until we have satisfied our entire debt to God. This “prison” is purgatory where we will not get out until the last penny is paid.

Hi Teresa,

You are one of my favorites from all the Housewives' shows. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind. First, stop spending money. Your poor husband is going to get an ulcer worrying about the money you spend. Second, not permit your girls to act out whenever they don't get their own way. That Melania's whining is loud and annoying. Third, write another book, the first one was amazing.

You all say that Danielle is good at playing the "victim," but you all are GREAT at playing the "blame game!"

Lauren R.

I feel really bad for you and Joe for what you are experiencing right now, but do you, him, the Manzo's, and the Laurita's takes responsibility for ANY of your actions? I am very glad Joe didn't get hurt in the accident, but he said he had a drink AFTER the wreck. I don't believe that for one second, because who would do something so silly?

Then you have Jacqueline and her family blaming Danielle for being attacked saying it was her fault that her hair was pulled, and Ashley said she thought her mother was attacked. You're the one who started it and then blamed Danielle. Actually, you all blame Danielle for EVERYTHING. The Manzo's started with the book of her past, then they get angry when Danielle wants to stand up for herself, which she has every right. Then there is you not taking responsibility for your financial downfalls. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with filing bankruptcy, but all of you seem to shift blame on everyone for everything except yourselves. Are you responsible for anything? I just don't get it. You all are GREAT at playing the blame game. Start owning up to your wrongdoings and people will sympathize with you a little better, blessings.
