I do want to point out one of the reasons I love my Joe so much and why I married him. Did you see how laid back he is when people are talking crap? He's never cared what anyone has said ever. He just does his thing. He doesn't plot and worry and bitch and try to make other people look bad. He doesn't act fake. He just lives his life. He is what he is. He's not going to change for you, for me, and definitely not for the cameras. I love that about him, his confidence -- that he just doesn't get sucked into the bullsh--. He never has. I've lived with him for twelve years now. I love his philosophy: let them say what they want to say, I'm living my life. And it's an amazing life right now with amazing things happening. I'm so happy and I can't wait to share it all with you!
As for the craziness on Twitter, I don't think it's a very healthy place to be right now (I just can't take anyone who's suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I'm going to slowly slip out of it, and maybe take a little break for a while. I have a big project I have to work on, and I want to spend every other second with my family. Don't worry, I'll be back!
I will be updating my website with pictures of the girls this fall and my appearance and book signing schedule (New York, Philly and South Carolina!).
Maybe it's time for your own show!! Obviously, friends and family do envy you that they've followed you're footsteps.. So maybe instead SMILE !!
You're the best Teresa! Keep your head up...love love love you! I think they need to change out the other housewives...
Omg Teresa I almost died laughing when you confused salmonella for semolina, because I do the same thing all the time! People who have never had semolina are always like wtf are you talking about, and then I have to explain that it's a bread. Anyway I know what you mean when you say it surprised you that everyone was taking digs behind your back. It happens in almost every reality show, but it always leaves me wondering if whoever was the topic of all the gossip ever got mad or even cared at all. I guess the only thing to do is focus on the people who would never even think of saying anything negative about you behind your back.
Good luck on your third cookbook!
Funny how Teresa can say anything she wants about anybody then has the nerve to say they were talking about her.
You did it again-you let that snide "downtown" remark slide in while proclaiming innocence! Please Bravo let Teresa G go-its getting exhausting.
Teresa is a very self-centered person who thinks she is better than anyone else. I don't like her and would be very happy to see her removed from the show. She is not a nice person at all, no matter what she thinks of herself. Her and her husband are just lower class people with money(?). Get rid of the bad apple before she spoils the entire show.
Wow - what a joke! You say you are always apologizing, but you are also always the one who brings up the past. Your husband seems to have no problem talking smack about everyone behind their backs, of course he is gonna be non confrontational in front of everyone else because he knows he is wrong. So sad to watch you this year, everyone has short comings but you never seem to be able to admit yours! You are not a victim, and you are not always right! Caroline and Jaqueline are just tired of listening to you bitch and moan, give them a break - you have worn them out.
T- I hate you are going through all you are only to also have to see how everyone is backstabbing you also!! Haven't the others heard "don't throw stones if you live in glass houses"?! I have always liked you keep it real. You are who you are and you don't apologize for it. You aren't fake like the rest. Keep it up girl!!
thats what i like about you tre keep your head up. it amazes me how everone else says nasty stuff about you 24/7 behind your back. at least your woman enough to say whatever you say to their faces. yes your are over the top somtmes but anyone who has been ganged up on like you this year, i say its a wonder you have not snapped. everyone is saying your acting catty or defensive i don't blame you. i feel bad for you. i don't think you set melissa up.i think the other ladies and boys see bashing you as a way to get airtime and really why would they be expected to create a storyline about them that we would actully want to watch or be interested in, when ganging up and bashing you is so much easier. it is shameful how you are being treated. good luck
Teresa, Congrats on taking the high road in regards to not bashing the other ladies for their previous and current remarks. I can not begin to imagine how hurt you must be by seeing these remarks. Yes you're loud and sometimes over the top, but who isn't at times and that's what makes you real. I think that the other women are jealous of your success and you being the "STAR" of the show. A lot of the things you are going through (finances, family drama, children, marriage) are things that many people are going through and what makes you relateable. You have a beautiful family and a very successful career.
Teresa, Teresa. I really enjoyed this episode, it was so good to see you and your brother make up. I cried along with you. One thing I agree with you, your husband (even though he can seem rough around the edges) is a true man. I like that he doesn't give a crap what people think and that he'll do anything to take care of his family.
One thing that I don't agree with is the fact that you say you don't hold grudges. Come on, Tre. You hold a grudge like no ones business. At the beginning of the season you were stating that you were hurt because you wen't asked to be in Kathy's wedding. How long has she been married, 20 years? If that's not holding a grudge, I don't know what is.. Please do some self reflection and take a look in the mirror at your faults. Don't be so quick to point out everyone elses. You talk about your friends/castmates behind their back also.
Love you Teresa! You are the only reason I still watch this show! Don't let the other "ladies" bring you down. Glad to hear you are not going to lower yourself to go on a twitter rampage as some of your castmates have done. You continue to take the high road and that will be the best revenge!
Teresa, You are absolutely A CLASS ACT! We the true fans have always had your back and have seen the others as they are. Joe is a great guy and alot of fun, I completely understand why he loves you so much and how you love him. Your children are little sweethearts and that Milarnia is so funny, they are going to do very well in life. Stay strong and remember your fans will always have your back. luv, luv, luv to you and your lovely family! from another Theresa.
Teresa, once again, an honest blog. We will always respect you for who you are. You tell it like it is...and we don't have to keep looking over our shoulders. Teresa doesn't play all nicey-nice to your face with knives in her hands behind her back. Enjoy the Apprentice. Can't wait to watch.
Good for you Teresa! So glad you saw how Greg is... really talks crap about you all the time. And I always comment on Jay's blog that your husband is really the only one that is himself and real! You, him and your brother make for good TV. Everyone else is just trying to stay relevant. Don't feel competitive you are so different from Melissa in a good way!
Teresa, you are the only housewife left worth watching. Unlike Caroline, with her fake migraines, her high society illusions, and snarky comments on wwhl, I would love to have a friend like you. You are fun, zany and hard working. I loved when you just dumped your entire bathing suit drawer in a suitcase so you could decide later in Punta Cana. I'm sorry that your so-called friends don't get you. We would SO get you in South Beach, girl.
Team Giudice all the way... Stay real like you have always had love that about you and your family!!!!!
Teresa, stay strong and don't worry about those other women. What is the common denominator in what has happened with "the prostitution whore", Grandma Kim G., Melissa and Caroline? It' s Jacqueline. I don't think you can contribute Ashlee's action up to out of the blue childish behavior, she learned her cattiness and poor attitude somewhere. You're better off without Jacqueline in your life. Hope this doesn't affect your relationship with Dina. Love ya Tre. Keep up with keeping the dignified attitude and don't slink down to Jacqueline's level. ~ Jen
Teresa, I love you but you have to let go - let the past alone, it was nice to see that you are trying with your cousin!
Great blog. It's enough blame to go around w/everyone. All of you are guilty of it. You've all said things behinds each other backs and made no so nice comments. One person is not any better then the other. Live your life the best you can. Don't like people saying negative things on twitter then unwilling to face the person they're trashing. COWARDLY
No matter what anybody says, I think you are the best. You tell it just like it is. You don't need them.
Teresa, I love love love you and your blogs are so classy. You are so right, I don't know how you can't be hurt by what Kathy, Rich, Greg (the jerk), Caroline, Jacqueline and Melissa say about you behind your back. You're a good person, you apologized to Kathy when she started it, she rolled her eyes at you and she talks so badly about you behind your back. Jay Mohr even called her out on it. She's not exactly a family member I would want to have, she seems more like her father than her sweet mother, your aunt. What a shame.
Greg is a nobody, we've been trashing him for months for trashing you! It's nice you just called him out on what he did behind Melissa's back, good for you! I don't take Jacqueline serious either anymore, she's on twitter and you never know if she's drunk or bi-polar or what! One minute she's spewing hate the next she's throwing love around, she needs to learn to think for herself. You were a good friend to her and her family, what a shame what they did to you! I heard about your new project so congratulations! Good luck with the new cookbook, I do Weight Watchers and I buy your cookbooks, that's a match made in heaven for me! xoxoxoxo
Stay the course, you'll come out looking better than all of them and hopefully you'll be able to leave this show behind and it will be nothing but a distant memory for all of us, like Two and a Half Men. Bravo messed up by putting on your family to attack you and your so called friends messed up by siding with your family, shame on them! Can't wait to see your next adventure! love love love you and your family! xo
Teresa, Feel compelled to say that your friendships are too confining. If you don't like someone they had better fall in line and be on Team Teresa. Jacqueline does not deserve the treatment you are giving her. She is a sweet, sensitive funny person who has had your back for a loooooong time. Problem is you wear people down by your demands on their friendship. This season you have put everyone through hell and if you don't change your ways you will be losing a lot of your friends. They try to help you over and over and you blow them off. YOU do not have all the answers , no one does but you need to LISTEN to what people are telling you, thank them for the advice and think about whether or not there is merit in that advice. Wise up, Teresa.
Love you Teresa! Please keep being you, you're a firecracker, you get upset quick but then cool down. Whatever. Who cares, let them talk and yeah Melissas song people trying to bring her down.. nope they're trying to bring you down! And unfortunately for them they are NOT succeeding.
Hi Tre I have to ask why is it ok for Caroline and her adult kids to say all kinds of rude things about you and your Hubby? But when you do it then its wrong and mean. I'm just not understanding this. I am in know way saying that you always behave in a great manor. I just don't get the double standard.
i absolutely love you. i do think you hold a bit of a grudge against kathy and melissa, but i'm not in your shoes. so who am i to say that it's either a grudge or just you demanding your respect. i cannot stand caroline. i knew she was a phoney since day one. i think jacqueline is a sweetheart but she's so far up caroline's butt right now that she can't see reality. i like melissa but she's two-faced. i cannot stand kathy. she loves to stir the pot and then play victim. keep being you, teresa!
BRAVO PLEASE POST MY COMMENTS. THANK YOU.
You and Joe come off as being genuine (right or wrong); this is why many viewers still support the two of you. I would like to congratulate you on being selected to on The Appredice. Caroline stated that she was asked first and she referred you. Donald Trump spokesperson stated that was not true that Caroline was never considered to be on The Appredice.
I don't think you deserved to be mistreated by your cast mates. I wish you and your family the best.
I don't see Jacquelyn as a liar. If she says she didn't take the pictures or release the pics, where is the fight (re: twitter fight) I at first was taken back that you set someone up like it was described. Maybe you did, maybe you didn't. I certainly hope you did not as that will totally be a low blow for you and would finally prove that you maybe really are the problem with your, your brother's and Melissa's relationship. If you did that, shame on you!
Teresa, You've moved on to a new class of success and your old friends and some family have become haters. You are a NY Times best selling author now and they can't handle it. It's nothing new--it's what happens when people have success and move up and think they can still be their sweet old self and hang out in their old gang. Congratulations to you, and don't worry about those envious haters who want to bring you down to the level they can handle.
Or do you really want them to like you again? Ok, gain a hundred pounds, lose the cookbooks, divorce your man, etc.-- then maybe they'll like you again.
You may find some new people on your level who are not threatened by you and can actually work with you. Remember, Iron sharpens Iron. It's sad to leave old friends behind, but it's their choice not to be as innovative and creative and hard-working as you. You're just blessed and it becomes you.
Teresa, It is very hard to watch you this season! I used to love you but I think your "fame" has gone to your head! You are way to carried away with yourself!
Oh an your on display on display on display was Hella cute. I'm sure Melissa knew your just being cute :)
I have always liked you Theresa and I hope you don't take this the wrong way but it seems as if you are the one always looking for an argument, i hear you always say family, family, family but you are not letting this happen, u always assume they have it out for you but that's not what i'm seeing as a viewer. You really should listen more too what they are saying and not be so quick to defend yourself when that's not it at all. I still love you, not to worry, it's only coming from the goodness of my heart.
Well said Teresa ,, You Rock .. And Joe is real like you ,, Best wishes to you and your family .. Your Fan Gia
Yes you do carry grudges. The entire time you've carried a grudge about what Kathy said about Audriana at the Christening. It seems like all of your issues w/Melissa and Kathy are about things that happened in the past, that's called carrying a grudge.
I believe you need to do a good hard look at how you react to situations and how you look to other (friend, family, and public in general). If it was just one or two of the ladies that had a problem with you, you may beable to say it's not me. But you have made conflick with just about every cast member (on reflection it is every cast member) so are you saying it's not me that has a problem, but all of them are wrong. Take an inventory of your life, you are burning all your bridges, you will be a very only person shortly-- no friends, no family - your daughters will see how you treat others and will either turnout like you or resent you .
Love you Teresa! You have more class than Caroline and her family will ever have. They act like 10 year olds on Twitter bashing everyone who doesn't agree with them, it's pathetic and so are they. Jac acts seriously unstable on Twitter and needs to step away from the computer, not you.
Classic Teresa...."it's everyone else talking crap and I never do anything wrong" Do you realize we watch the shows? LOL
Teresa, Love, love, love you! Your Joe is right - live and let live and don't listen to any of the crap people talk....love your cookbooks, too!!! When are you doing some appearances in Florida? All of us NYers who live in Florida NEED some real Italian food down here!!! And some Jersey Girls too!!! Hope your new project is your own show!!!!!
I can appreciate that you apologized for over reacting, you seem to have a better spirit this Blog. Stay true to yourself and ignore all the bashing, at the end of the day you have to be happy with yourself.
You dont hold grudges. Now Theresa I can admit you are getting slammed from all side this year, and its got to hurt, but you do hold grudges, you held onto a card Melissa gave you for your housewarming to show the others and then talked about how you threw Melissa's cookies out to get back at her. Thats a grudge. Instead of talking to Kathy and hashing out the Christening incedent before you went on vacation, you waited for her to say one thing about kids and took the oppertunity to snap. Thats holding a grudge. You are very contradictory in your statements. You didnt talk about Melissa's body on display because she was grabbing her crotch, you spacifically said her cleavage was on display, which in that outfit it was not. You show more cleaveage going on a simple drive to the groacery store then she did that night. You need to review the shows before you do your blog. You have too many errors in the facts.
Teresa your stories and explanations are getting old. Don't you see...It can't ALWAYS be everyone else's fault, odds are against you on that. I liked you on all the other seasons, but now you make everything a competition and when you don't 'win' ... you race to explain why it wasn't fair. Good for you for not participating in the twitter wars, etc.
Teresa, forget about the naysayers!...you're so awesome...I hope it's true that Jacqueline and Caroline did actually quit the show...Jacqueline is so fake and tries to be sexy when she's has the face that's in the shape of an egg...and Caroline is way too old to be on the show...she's such a Debbie Downer...so negative all the time...I love how you're always being yourself...good luck with your new cookbook!!!!
Keep staying positive Teresa. It's so fishy to me how all of a sudden your close friends Caroline and Jacqueline are going against you since Meliisa and Kathy came on the show. Now I see why you didn't want them on the show. Love love love you.
Great blog! Love you and I will always going to buy your cookbooks and you always are goingt o be my favorite housewife!
teresa you are a real housewife!you go out their to defend your husband,family!youve worked your butt off to pay your depts Bravo to you!look foward to your new book,just ignore those so called friends from the show out for what they can get happenes all the time!just shocked at jaquline !love you Tre!
