For weeks you’ve been talking about my parenting skills? Are you serious? Are you serious? How dare you! You and me as mothers don’t even belong in the same sentence. What do you think Christine, your 16 year old daughter doesn’t know what you’re doing? Christine even said last year that the guys you bring around only "want you for your goodies." You should be ashamed of yourself. And you don’t even know the ages of my daughters, so you can go scratch...
You actually have the nerve to suggest my labor was just "an act" and rip on me for serving my kids frozen French toast before I left for the hospital? When I was in LABOR??? What did you want me to do, cook them a five-course meal??? Seriously! I cook homemade meals for them every night. Sorry I couldn’t manage it from scratch in between contractions! Before I left, I even made my own bed because I can’t walk out the door without leaving my house in a respectable way. I think it’s hilarious that you go on the TODAY show and do nothing but talk about me. You say I’m uneducated and don’t have a good vocabulary, and then you make up words. You say you don’t know my baby’s name because you couldn’t understand when I said it? I freakin’ spelled it, bitch! How much clearer could I be? Can you not spell? Just spellin’....
I am SO glad you read my book. I’m sure the history of whores in Italy — puttanas — was enlightening, but nothing you didn’t know, right? You think I named a recipe after you? Funny, it’s called "Danielle’s Puttanesca Sauce" not "Danielle Staub’s Puttanesca Sauce." How do you know you’re the Danielle it’s named after? But I’m glad you want to claim the title. Bravo Danielle.
Finally, your hypocrisy reached new limits tonight when you stood there and laughed while your HOMOPHOBIC friend screamed his HATE SPEECH in a public place. Last year, you couldn’t stop bringing up the fact that my Joe used the word "gay" as an adjective. He didn’t mean it disrespectfully, and he wasn’t talking about or TO a person. Then you cry that "Gollum the Make-up Artist," that disgusting man who was spitting in my face at the Reunion Show when I was PREGNANT was 'like family" to you. You pretend to be full of light and love for everyone. And then you stand by and laugh while your friend screams FAGGOT OVER AND OVER at Chris at The Brownstone?!?! As a Christian woman, a human being, and a friend to so many wonderful gay people, I am completely offended, appalled and disgusted by you and your "friend," Danielle. SHAME ON YOU!!! If you think I’m not going to raise this issue everywhere you go now, you are sadly mistaken. You are sad, you are a mistake, and you are sadly mistaken. I apologize to all my sweet, gorgeous, adorable and fabulous fans that you had to read that, but you have no idea what it’s like to be stalked by a crazy person who harasses your family and labels your children as bigots. I think we all know who the bigoted, pathological liar is. PLEASE save your hard-earned money and don’t buy her fictional “memoir” of crap.

I LOVE U. I don't watch these silly shows but you come across as a person worth knowing. I saw you on the Wendy Williams shows which I don't normally watch because I'm not into drag queens. newho, its cool that you are standing by Joe. If he made huge amounts of dough you already know that it could be lost. It is JUST MONEY!!! And if you stand by him that money will come right back. Donald Trump style baby!!!
Teresa i absolutey LOVE you!!!!! you are the bomb!!! u are the reason i love to watch housewives of new jersey!!! u have an awesome family!!! beautiful daughters and an amazing house!!! keep being you!!! someone had to tell danielle... cant wait for the next episode!! by the way your style is fabulous!!! i tell my friends "if you wanna talk to me address me by the name teresa, someday i will move to new jersey hopefully have 3 girls and raise them just like teresa, will u move there with me??" their responses "sorry you're on your own" my response to that is "its okay cause when i have $$ a mansion and a wonderful family like teresa youll wanna come down there with me too" lol im a huge fan of you teresa!!!!!
Teresa, Congrats on your baby girl. She is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Theres nothing better than little girls. She is a doll!
Teresa up until you went after Danielle I thought that you were classy. That all was so not cool...so she stared so what ! Yes she is a real hot mess but did you really need to get to her level ? She was on her way out and you sat and waited for her...you could have had a good time and just let it go. When you argue with a fool ( we know that she is ) from a distance people can"t tell which is which. I still think you are cool.
Teresa I commented last week how I was so much like you when I was your age, Now I'm more of a Caroine personality. Love you all can't get enough of your show.
NO!!! Bumper stickers on a Bentley even if she was bald hair grows back.. Joe has the tats for the fam.. you keep it like all us MOMs clean and just as we hope for our girlies.. mom of 4...
Teresa, I have never really watched much TV but I had a surgery on my leg that has demanded I sit with it elevated for two weeks. I came across the "NJ Housewives" and was hooked! All I can say is you rock and it makes me so homesick for my highschool bestfriend. She is Italian, with a family so similar to yours. You both have the same mannerisms, dialect, and personality...love it!
Teresa, you are the real deal! You have a wonderful Family and the girls are Lovely. But the real reason (sorry), I wanted to blog, is to say I think the tat Joe got on his arm is awesome! I got my first last year, and have expanded on it over the last couple of months. For Joe to that in honor of something so dear to his heart, I'm totally in tune to that. Thanks for letting us in on your life.
Teresa! You are BY FAR my favorite housewife! Out of all the housewives I think you are the most real and you stay true to what you believe. The way you stick up for yourself and speak your mind is so inspiring for a girl who has a hard time holding in what she's thinking. You're awesome! :]
Hi Teresa first off I would like to say congrats on your new bundle of joy, she already looks just like you. But one question I want to ask are you teaching your children the value of a dollar? Don't get me wrong we all love to look good & wear designer clothing but I think you focus on materialistic things a little too much & your children are following down that path which can lead to massive destruction. I only say this because God forbid you are not able to continue to afford these lavish things? Your children already have a tantrum when you tell them they cant get something in every color.
GET IT GIRL!!!!!!!!!! I am so proud of this blog!!!! You really know how to stand your ground against that dilusional, pathetic excuse for a person!!! I LOVE YOU and your family! You are the true example of how women should strive to be! Thank you for being honest!!
OMG i love u and ur kids dainelle is rude and makes a big deal out of nothing i am watching the episode right now. u just need to forget her the more u think about her the more she wins becuz the more she get to u.
MY FAV. EPISODE WAS THE FLIPPING TABLE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!
I read the story regarding Danielle that you posted. I have watched the NJ housewives and yes, the show is very entertaining. However, just for your knowledge Theresa, sexual abuse and how victims develop is actually how Danielle’s personality portrays on the show. During my thesis I had to speak with various women who were unfortunately victims of rape and child molestation. The women that I interviewed varied from professionals, prostitutes and exotic dancers, all of the women were pertinent for having a controlled group and an uncontrolled group, for my research method. The women who chose the profession of having sex and being in the sex entertaining industry, were across the board, all had the same pattern in personality. In other words these women lost their power when they were raped or molested. For them prostituting and stripping gave them back the power they lost. Although, it may seem these girls as you said have and “appetite for sex”, that is not the case. It is quite sad that for these women, sex is a tool and they need to control it on their terms. One girl, who intrigued me the most, was a graduate from Colombia University and she was a “stripper”, and yes I believe her, she went to Colombia. She gave me the most difficult time in talking to her and had a story that will always haunt me. Many of these girls enjoyed playing games and steeling my things when I interviewed them because that’s how they were able to get by in their life by manipulation and being cunning. However, once they trusted me and I spoke with them in depth, my views changed. But, the one girl from Colombia, enlightened me and she explained that when she is on stage stripping, she is gaining the power that was taken from her and it is on her terms. Another personality trait unfortunately, is narcissism which is how I think you view Danielle, but those traits of lies and victimization stems from the loss of control that the victims had. It is not however a justification for someone’s actions, but I just wanted to inform you, before you made any more uniformed statements about victim’s of sexual assault and child molestation. It is offense to people who are victims please remember because you are on TV and in the public eye that you do live in a fishbowl. All the best of luck in all your endeavors!
Teresa u are a wonderful real italian lady.Jaring sauce in the garage with your family and mom and dad,it brought back my memories.You are to cool,I love the shopping with the girls and how u dress them,but dont over do they will always exspect it in life.Your home what can I say its beautiful lots of luck.

Hi Theresa, I am a new fan of the show. I wish i would have started watching sooner. I think u are so funny and a great Mom and Joe seems to be a happy husband . I have to say I am a bit jealous of u, I love ur house , it is so big and u have decorated it so well ! U are blessed , keep up the good work girlie . God bless u and ur family
Theresa..i absolutely adore you and your daughters. i watch the show weekly and i am constantly losing my breath from laughing so hard. you are my favorite housewife!
Teresa, I admire you so very much. I love how you speak the truth and are not a hypocrite by any means. You are a wonderful mother, wife, and friend. Keep doing what you are doing, because you are absolutely fabulous at everything you do. I one day hope to be like you and have the loving family that you have. Like my mom always tells me, "lo que sera, sera..." (whatever will be, will be) ... ignore all the drama, it will always be there, so no point in even dwelling on it. :) LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!
I had never watched any of the Housewives shows until recently, but I have to say YOU are the reason I kept tuning in! YOU are so real and hysterical! I think you could be a best friend I haven't met yet! You're the best! Keep it up, those little girls are adorable and I love your relationship with your husband, I think its fabulous!
I love You! My husband and I are such big fans of yours! We watch the show religously, we get so tickled at you and Joe because we can realte to you so much, we have 5 kids, 4 boys and 1 girl! I love your realness, and tell it like it is attitude, we need more people like you around! You have a beautiful family, no matter what "Dirt D" says! Cant wait to see the rest of the show!
Teresa you are spot on. Danielle doesn't know how to get over it, and she is so selfish to take a night that was supposed to be for little sick baby into a Danielle Drama night.
Love the show!!!
Teresa I couldn't agree with you more!! I love you and think you are a fantastic Mom! Don't listen to one word the WACKO has to say, she lives in another world (insanity). Your daughters are absolutely gorgeous and congrats on your new baby girl! You know you are a great Mom and don't ever let anyone tell you different!! God Bless you and your family!!
I Love You! You are my fav housewife! Call it like you see it, because we all already know the truth! You are soooo funny and such a Great Mom!
just spellin!! HAHA I LOVE yOU TERESA!!! love your fam and the lauritas and the manzos!!!!!!!!!! mwahmwahmwah!
Voi siete il mio preferito casalinga sullo spettacolo...Lei mi ricordano tanto della mia zia che ancora vive a Brooklyn. Sebbene la mia famiglia è da Spagna, ci sono così simili è inquietante.
Now back to English :) I laughed so hard at your post.. OMG I almost wet my pants!! HOW FUNNY and the reason why it is so funny it is because it is all true. You know I knew Danielle didnt grow up as she said. She claims to have been raised by a Italian Catholic family but that is not the case. They were WASP Evangelist. Not that there is anything wrong with that but she claims to be what she is not.
OMG Teresa I laughed so hard when Joe was in the delivery room and said something to you and you told him to shut up then started laughing.. I love you two.... I think you are both wonderful parents, husband and wife, daughter and son.
I know Joe can come across and tough but I think most people from the East Coast understand. He is a strong loving figure that is sarcastic, WE LOVE YOU JOE!
Teresa, mush love to you and your family and we Love you here in South Florida. I am your biggest fan. As I have said previously you remind me of my Aunt, your mannerism, nurturing ways, kindness and no time for nonsense personality. You are extremely beautiful and INTELLIGENT!
PS I am going to buy your book this weekend at Barnes and Noble.
XOXOXOX to your and your family
Teresa you are the best!! By the way, I think you were the cutest pregnant lady I have ever seen. You are too funny, and I mean that in a good way. I love watching you and your girls. Nevermind "psycho" lady. She needs meds no doubt. Love you:)
terasea i love you and the way you handle you girls, sometimes you have to ignore danielle is drama women acting like children, you should let dina rub off on you a little, stay positive and block out negative
you are my biggest fan i love you soooo much you are my favorit person on the show. I am only 12 in the 6th grade but still last night i watched with my mom like allways and i kept telling her that you are so amazing all the time. also i love your jersy talk!!
Love you girl! MUAH MUAH MUAH. You tell it like it is, you shot from the hip and I love that about you. Your children and beautiful and you are one amazing mother! Danielle is just jealous. When is she gonna realize you are dont care about her and move on.... ughh. Oh and my favorite..Just spellin....
You crack me up. Much love. Ciao Bella
Love you girl!! Sorry for your recent problems. Alot of people are there or have been. Especially in this economy. Hold your head up. You are great!!
just wanted to say love you. You are my favorite. My last comment didn't get posted so I thought I would make it alittle nicer. I'm so glad you let loose and said how you felt. I agree with you. It seems like every week she tries to find some way to put you down or talk about your kids. That really makes me mad I have 3 girls and if someone talked about them I would flip. O yea I'm talkin about danielle. I'm sure that was clear but I just thought I would make it clear. Antway just wanted to say your girls are beautiful and you are great just keep your head up and keep being you don't let that hoebag (lol) get you down. And I know you won't.
LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!!! Amazing personality!!!! Amazing mother!!!! Amazing friend!!!! Keep shining!!!
Teresa I also hope you don't leave the show. I understand that business is bad for Joe right now, but it will get better, just slowly. I know tons of people who've had to file. I relaly hope to see you on future shows and that's it Danielle leaving.
Adore you and your family!
Danielle (why are we still calling her that - her real name is Beverly) loves the negative attention. Wouldn't it be great if no one spoke of her ever ever ever again?? The negative attention she is getting is making her famous and God help us all! she certainly doesn't deserve the fame (...but maybe another table thrown at her, haha).
Bethenny would dish sumthing soooo serious to you.... beautiful girls u have, theyre gone be like little paris hiltons... not in a good way.... oh they cant because ur broke..
Love you Teresa! If you are the one leaving the show, I don't know what I'll do! Please say it isn't so. I absolutely love you, your adorable kids and your hunky Italian Stallion, Joe! He is too much. God bless you with your new little one. Continued success and good wishes with your book too. Can't wait to get me hands on it. And, you look awesome after just having a baby. Just had to tell you you're the greatest!!
theresa i love you and your family soooooooooo much,there is nothing fake about you.frankly its great to boost your children, to give them good self esteem.Theres just one thing you are such a stage mom.Did you see the faces of the people in the room when you were going on on and on about gia. its also good to brag about your children but not to strangers. Even friends get tired of mothers always talking about there kids.
theresa!!! you are absolutley amazing. my fav on housewives. i think you are the most "real" housewife of them all. keep doing what you do and you'll be great.
Teresa - you are the best! I so enjoy watching you and your family, could you be any more fabulous? Never a hair out of place, always turned out beautifully (all of you), and so funny!! You make the show great. I know you've got personal issues right now (financially) - I know you and your family will come through it all better than ever!
Are you the one leaving the show? I hope not I just love you and your family! I know it's hard right now for you because of your finances but it will get better. Hang in there!
You really do have beautiful children, so I would encourage you to have more! ;)
I really hope that Bravo takes Danielle off the show. I don't even like watching her, to be honest.
I do love, love, love you, however! I'm not Italian (not even a little, sadly), but I am learning to cook like one with the help of your fabulous book! I am a nanny for two little boys, and they really love the food I have made with your recipes. And they are really picky eaters!
Thank you so much for being you!
