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 !!
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 !!
Although sometimes i don't agree with what you are doing, I cant stand the Bullying mentality the show has taken on. Caroline's self riotous attitude disgusts me. She has full control over the rest of the cast, and it is blatantly obvious. While your husband is boarish, at least he is real, you couldn't say the same for anyone elses husband. I guarantee, Richie rehearses his jokes the night before taping, while your brother flexes and poses in the mirror before taping. Do any of the other wives have any other story line besides you?
Teresa, you are my favorite Housewife of all since day 1. You are hilarious!!!! You always make me laugh, and I know I'd be doing & saying it too, bc ppl need to be put in their place when they're wrong. We Taureans don't mess with BS
Teresa, no matter what anyone else says about you, you are my fav, do not let anyone else spoil your fun. Melissa is not worth your time, she is just fake, and all the rest.. they can go screw one another!! I Love your family and kids, and I wish you all the happiness in the world, you desrve it. Keep being your hilarious self!! xx
Though coming from a mixed marriage of French Canadian and Sicilian, mom rasied us in the Sicilian tradition. I can honestly say, that mom must turn over in her grave to see how you and your group project and reduce our heritage to a bunch of superficial nonesense. Is that really what you want for yourself, your famliy and friends?
You call it as you see it you see it and we see your family behaving normally husband sleeping kids fighting etc not how the other families are. This season YOU had to be made the villian as none of the others could cope. Jacqueline couldn't even show for the reunion. You were set up from the start with Melissa and Cathy joining the show not telling you, they are both sly and nasty. Melissa is so far up herself she needs a ladder and she will knife you as quick at look at you. Caroline should just concentrate on keeping her family perfect and not give out advive to others. And Andy next time be fair you were just as bad as the other bullies not your usual style.
Ciao teresa , I just watched the reunion episode . The host should be fired. I mean weres the respect . Yes the girl were rude but he was an ass to you. I found him very very disrespectful. Your the star of the show . Without you that show would be nothing . And don't worry about some of the negative. Comments people have written cause guess what there still watching the show too and jealous . Your a good mother and very proud to show off her family and why shouldn't you. You have a husband that loves for you and sticks by you 100% . you have 4 beautiful daughter a beautiful home to grow your family in. Your a successful business women. You look amazing . Tersa your a strong women You should hold your head hi and be proud . Tanti baci p.s hope 2012 is a fantastic year.
Teresa when i first watched the show I started on this seasons christmas party and I was completely shocked how you and Melissa acted and sadly I was team Melissa. Then I bought all the seasons on Itunes and you , Joe and the kids became my Fav on the show.I've seen how you stepped up to the plate when times got tough. I too am a very stuborn defensive person and I believe you need to become defensive when you constantly have people attacking you. I watched everysingle person on that show except albie say something bad about you and most shockingly Caroline is the worst of all. I know that the show edits it to show the worst parts but to see the twinkle in your husbands eyes when he looks at you or one of your kids achieves something is amazing. Some times you come off as a bitch but I know from experience that when you keep getting shovle shit eventually you are going to explode and you have to be a bitch. Anyways blah blah blah keep being you caroline is a vicious woman and you dont need her. On the other hand Jaquolin I a good friend and good friends are hard to find so you need to make up with her but keep in mind in Chris does not want her around you she will side with Chris everytime because hsbands come before friends and don't take ir personal you are AMAZING!!!
Teresa, Maybe I shouldn't say this to another woman or human for that matter but, I truly feel that you need to know that you, alone with your husband needs to seek professional help. In season 3 you were out blaming the world for your life, and the situation with your family when the real blame was to be placed with you and your husband. I find both of you'll to be CRAZY. Get help befor you lose everything, you have no friends so who will you shop with now? Your husband! Get help you have children watching your every move....
I can only base my judgement on what I have seen here and there on the show so I will be the first one to say my judgement could be swayed by what is shown. It does trouble me the wounds I see in Theresa. She is bitter and lashes out. She holds onto things that others have tried to resolve and throws it in their faces time and time again. She also lives in a self-absorbed world. She definitely shows signs of a wounded woman. All her projections on others reflects how she truly feels about herself. Not until she is ready to look into the mirror and deal with herself will she ever be able to heal.
It was really annoying to watch Kathy roll her eyes everytime Tre was speaking It did seem that there was 3 against 1 which wasn't fair I would like to know exactly why Jacqueline was missing from the reunion shows I heard that there was some talk about exotic dancer from the past?
gotta say you have honestly changed for worse...you have no clue whats going on because you live in your own world and only think of yourself. you re my least favorite. hopefully that will change but you gotta get the old teresa back. and your husband..you need a new one. hes an embarassement and i think half your problem
After watching the show I have to ask....Teresa are you really that person that your are portraying on the show? If so I certainly wouldn't want you as a friend nor a family member. You are selfish, backstabbing, ignorant and very self absorbed. You kept mentioning in many episodes that family is most important to you but I think you would step over or on them if it suited you.
From what I see watching Teresa on the show she is defensive when people bring the truth to her face. She doesn't seem to want to admit her faults. One day she might but it might be to late when ties get cut. As long as you feed into drama & live it, it can be hard to get away from unless you really want to be away from it. Its hard to take back what you say & is taped on national tv for everyone to se. She needs to learned from the reality of her actions & not learn & regret.
I was just watching the reunion show.. and was extremely disappointed in how you were treated. Both the host and the other ladies were having a "bash" session against you. I wanted to reach through the tv and slap all of them silly! They are just jealous.. you rock!
Theresa, I have always liked you, but lately you have seem to change. You are way to defensive and need to really listen to people. All of the other ladies are good people to have onyour side especially during these bad times. If you don't judge them they won't judge you! I wish I had people like that in my life to talk to and go through things with. Your husband needs to accept your brother and Melissa. Your children are hurting and they need their family! You are Italian apologize and be done with the past! You say your Dad is sick be a family for him! Forget about things, if you feel Melissa copies you feel complimented. If you feel Caroline doesn't cook well keep it to yourself, really how often do you have to eat her cooking. Kathy is your cousin if she starts a restaurant be there for her, if she ask your advice give it, if not stop talking. Compliment Melissa on her singing career. Love everyone you never know what tomorrow will bring!
You are the real housewife of New Jersey. You are a good mother. I love seeing you playing with your kids. I can make out that you are a very hard working lady. God bless your family.
OMG watched an episode this morning Theresa in a grocery store with her kids it amazed me at how she let her children behave in a grocery store it seemed to me that they had never been in one before. Then Theresa makes a comment about making dinner every night and I had to laugh there is no way this woman cooks a meal every night, I bet here chef got laid off cause of their money trouble. She is only trying to sell cookbooks and pretending to be a chef in my opinion. Theresa is an nasty woman and her children are learning to be just like her I feel bad for them growing up thinking that no one else has feelings and only they matter.
Teresa, i'm Italian from Tuscana, but have been in Canada since i was 8. I come from a very large family (11 bros and sisters) plus all the nieces/nephews/grandchildren, etc.. 32 in total and we're all fluent Italians, even the young ones. That's one thing our parents instilled in our family is to speak Italian in the home so the younger ones don't lose it over time. Do you ever speak Italian to your children because I believe I heard it spoken once by either your mother or Joes', but that's it. Every family has their ups and downs, but if you're true to your "famiglia" all things will work themselves out. You have to stop trying to "overdo" the other families and get off Kathy's and Melissa's back. It is quite obvious that you turn "green" if anyone of your family mbrs have any type of talents or success. Melissa has a beautiful voice. You should be supporting her. As well as Kathy's new venture. I have to admit, she's more of a typical Italian matriarch than you are. Do you even cook for your daughters? That's an unthinkable attribute for an Italian. That's why I find it hard to "stomach" buying any of your cookbooks. It's all a facade. Credit should be given to the women who actually cook, which is your mother-in-law and mother. It seems like everything is for show with you. Every party event you attend you have something negative to say "Oh, i would have done it differently".... Can anyone do anything right in your eyes? My mother used to tell me about how many of the "southern" Italians lived in poverty, but then they come to the Americas, made a good living, and then they put on the "airs" thinking they're somehow important now.... they've forgotten their roots and what they really came from. Money does not make a person. It's what's inside and that's something you and Joe are missing. We all like nice things, but you have to stay humble to enjoy them.
Theresa , I see a big transition from last season to the one . I realize you have alot to contend with but there were times this season I wanted to shake you and make you see you're actions. You really need to stop being so defencive . You jump the gun too quickly and pounce without thinking . You're negitive ways are going to eat you up . I think you need some time to yourself to think and breathe. You're Husband do not help the situation in any way shape or form , if anything he contributes to most of you're problems .The rest of you're family treats you like you're a spoiled child taking a temper tantrum and they put all the blame on you when alot of the time they goad you . caroline is not a part of you're life now and to be honest I do not see that as a bad thing. I find her to be too contolling and medeling anyways . I wish you never burned you're bridges with Jacqueline However , she seems to be a genuine friend . Step back Teresa . Have a long look at yourself . I do not think you are a happy person and you're actions this year tells the tale . Good luck .
Teresa, I love you and ur family.you have a bunch of pretty kiddos...u r so lucky and b lessed...keep on keeping on..
Theresa, You are awesome, and I love Joe and your kids. The other ladies make me sick the way they have treated yoou this past season. I can't stand Kathy, she is weird and spiteful. I hope they fire Kathy, I hope Melissa, Caroline and Jacquline smartens up.
the one thing that i can honestly relate to you is when your right you know your right and you stand your ground your NOT a push over!! brovo teresa you handled you self assertive and you didn't get violent. THE thing I Love the most is you might not see when your wrong that moment but after you had a moment to reflect you admit your wrongs and you don't have a problem with saying i'm sorry. YOUR HUMAN its natural.
We all have feelings. I can understand your strong feelings at this challenging time. I can even feel sorry for you. But we are not judged on our feelings, we are judged on our behaviour. You justify your behaviour because of how you feel, but your behaviour is terrible. All of the RHONJ women except Jacquilne are the same. You loose all sympathy from me. The culture of New Jersey Italians breeds bad behaviour which you all use to justify more bad behaviour. You all seem to justify this by labelling yourselves as passionate. Between your show and Jersey Shore I look at you from Australia and thank God you all live so far away.
By the way, when Caroline said your daughter's song was a disgrace, she wasn't talking about the song, she was talking about how the adults were acting that prompted your daughter to write that song. It broke our hearts that the adults didn't keep their problems to themselves. Kids aren't dumb, they know EVERYTHING that's going on, even when you think they aren't listening.
Teresa, You don't hold grudges, you get mad and that's it, it's never re-visited again. You don't want to speak poorly about Kathy. Have you read your blog??? Your entire blog is bringing stuff up from the past. During the show you kept saying that what's in the past is in the past. How many times did you bring up the events from the Christening? You brought that up in conversations that weren't even about that. You don't want to talk bad about Kathy, then that's all you do in the next paragraph. Your ENTIRE blog is bringing up issues from the past. If you really leave it in the past, you'd be talking more about what is going on now in your life, about the girls, your family. Nope. Didn't read anything about what's going on now (except marketing your cookbook). Everything you talk about is are negative issues from the past. Have you ever heard the saying that what you dislike about other people is really what you dislike about yourself? Read your blog again, then look in the mirror - maybe you can "reflect" on who Teresa really is and if she is really acting like the person she sees in the mirror. Wake up and smell the lasagna!!!! Move on for heaven's sake.
Teresa I believe that you are a very strong, loving, and passionate women, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I did catch all the negative statements by your "friends" and family. It is really a shame that everyone on the show is trying to find something to be upset about. Family comes first and you should put all your energy into your husband, children, parents, and career. Good luck with your new cook book! LS~
Teresa, hang in there girl. You had a rough year. Not your best side took lead, but we've all been there. I love your passion, your boldness, and your desire to be real...but you need to sit back sometimes and remember that you just might be looking at things through that "filter of offense" that latches on and distorts truth, causing us to see circumstances "as we are," rather than how they really are. It's obvious you're struggling against a lot of offenses and a wounded heart. The reunion show was like watching a starved, trapped and tormented lioness trying to defend herself through a way to small cage. You entered with your wall up and your claws out and stayed that way the whole time. Girl, sometimes it's best to just be quiet and listen, even if you really don't want to hear what might be said. What I see are people who actually really love you and a family that shouldn't even be torn apart but all the silly nit-picky stuff has you separated. You are a great mom, and an amazing wife!! It is very obvious that your girls are your life! Kathy never said you weren't--please hear her. and Melissa is really trying to stay calm and work this out--please give her grace and the benefit until you can see it for yourself. Ask your hubby to stop drinking and toting so much, get Gia a songwriting career, have a family BBQ and just wear low maintenance jeans and t-shirt (to drop the competitiveness and because I'm sure you'd look amazing in anything, anyway!!), and just have FUN with your family. If you really want to 'get real" then get vulnerable. ((((hugs)))) here's to a better year, next year!
Love you, keep your head high and a smile on your face!! you really do bring happiness to a lot of people just by being you!
Teresa, you were always so real in your other seasons what happened to you? While filming the next season please get back to being you...
Hey Teresa. Im glad you defended yourself in the reunion. I aqgree that Caroline is a grumpy old bully. Its been difficult to see this season the drama of your family but there is drama in every family. I hope BRAVO gets rid of Caroline and Jacqueline. They are not good for the show. Your family is. The best for you, and go and give your brother a BIG HUG and make up.
Ugh! Does it always have to be about Theresa????? Every time someone else is in the spotlight, she seems to have an issue with it. Watching the last reunion, you can clearly see how annoyed she gets if Andy is speaking to anyone other then her. Rolling her eyes, or making comments like "I was at the hospital everyday when Victoria had her surgery", please , give me a break!!! Theresa get over yourself!
Hi. Teresa I admire your strength and the ability to not hold back but you need to stop being so defensive. If you are secure of yourself then who cares whatother people say even if you consider them to be your friends. I am a mother of three who are all grown up now and people use to talk about how I raised my children and guess what I have two in the army and one going to school in the medical field so apparently what I was doing worked. People are always going to judge you regardless. Sometimes you need to listen without getting offensive because there are times that we all need to change something in our lives. You are Teresa! and friends fight, argue but like you say at the end of the day you can still be friends because friends are suppose to be there in good and bad it's like brother's and sister's. Just chill and don't become so offense because at the end you will loose out on good friends and family. P.S my youngest is just like that and she is learning to take criticism as an advise not a criticism.
How dare Caroline call Gia's song a disgrace!!! I'm so upset with her I can't stand to hear the sound of her voice. Shame on her, and shame on Melissa & Kathy for taking her side. Melissa & Kathy owe you an apology. Caroline is a disgusting.
Tre, you were ATTACKED on the reunion show and it made me sick to watch. Caroline needs to shut up when it comes to your feelings of your brother and Christmas. You have a right to feel how you feel and Caroline has NO business telling you otherwise. Just ignore her...she obviously has some serious issues. And Melissa, what a trader. If she was truly trying to make mends, she wouldn't have whipped out her phone with all the comments you made to her. What kind of person stores negativity on her phone only to resort back to?? A person who wants to start a fight!! I see who she really is...a snake. And Kathy, she obviously doesn't have your back. She's just kissing up to Melissa & Caroline. So sad...
Teresa.......You are and always will be my favorite housewife of NJ!! I have watched the show since Season One and everyone is writing things about how you have changed, well what about all that you have been through financially and this year the situation with your family issues? I cannot believe the way you were "attacked" on the Reunion snow! I felt awful for you and it was really making me angry that every time they put the camera on Caroline, she was rolling her eyes at you and every time they put the camera on Melissa or Kathy they were smirking at you. What was that all about? Were they making fun of you? That wasn't very nice at all. First of all, Melissa & Kathy are family and Caroline, well she is no one.....obviously she proved that. What a phoney she turned out to be. I never really cared too much for her anyway, she thinks she knows everything about everything. She is a know it all and she thinks she is perfect and I cannot stand people like her! She thinks she is superior over you & everyone else. Well, you don't need her & her lectures & advice....she was never your friend! At the beginning of this season, I didn't take too good to Melissa, she really got on my nerves, I think she is a show-off. But,then I started to like her a little but I am not sure again. I don't know if I totally trust her. But, I suppose you should try to work it out w/her so you can have a relationship w/your brother because you love your brother & so do your daughters. Just don't let your husband come between you & your brother! Anyway, make your family relationships work, as you said, blood is thicker than water! And, italian families are close, I'm italian & there is nothing more important to me than my family. I wish you all the best & God bless you & your family. Love you Tre, Denise PS I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Sorella Day Spa in Hamilton, NJ, so I have your first cookbook and you actually signed it there, love it! Some of your recipes are very similar to my family recipes!
You rock!!!! Your cookbooks rock!!!!! Keep them coming. The rest of those housewives have too much karma to deal to ever amount to anything. Your family (melissa and kathy) are shameful.......I feel for you and your parents that you have to deal with them. You will go places and they will be left behind watching videos or their 15 minutes.....and they know it, this is why they are so ugly to you.
Theresa, i originally was a big fan....but now I think you live in a dream world. Every time I walk by tabloid magazines like in-touch and once again see a headline story (like the truth about everyone else by Theresa) it is very clear to me that you are for sale.....you will sell anyone or anything to make a buck in the name of supporting your family. It is sad and pathetic.
Dear Theresa I liked you at one time, but oh man! this year was an eye opener, it nearly blinded me of what you really are. You treated Caroline so badly and to think that you have know her for 10 years. You just threw her away like trash oh and the way you treat Jacqueln is just as bad. They were only trying to help you with your brother issue and they hated seeing you hurt and you treat them like that. Wow! remind me never to look a snake in the grass in the eye becuse they may bite me like you did Caroline and Jacqueln. You need to disengage mouth and open your ears when your sister-in-law and cuz tell you things or open there harts to you. Or will you throw them away like you did two friends that go way back and had your back no madder the issue. Your husband is on a run away train when are you going to wake up and see that. Caroline is right when she says that you have drank the Kool-aid way to much. Wow! you are going soon it looks like. Thanks for the Show!
Teresa, I don't know what's really going on in your life. But you don't listen, your are defensive and you think you do no wrong. If you truly love your family then stop talking about them behind their backs. Signed....once a fan of Teresa
Teresa wants alot of attention. She needs to really think before she speaks. She holds the record for gossiping. Melissa has more class and is not trying to be like Teresa. Teresa needs etiquette lessons. Why did she have to slash what Melissa did for her wedding. Learn to listen instead of interuppting with the inmature remarks. You don't even remember what you have said to Melissa that was hurtful...having to have her read back what sh.e kept track of and picking one...which she did no nonchantly. I guess someone has to be the evil one(Teresa) now that the real witch(Danielle) has moved on. I am watching part 2 again and Teresa always has an answer for everything most of which does not make sense.
Teresa: All that I've to say is... "SHUT UP"! I can barely watch the show. My heart races. I can't go to sleep after watching the show. The blood running thru your veins is toxic waste! Get off of the show. I don't want to see your face or hear your voice. Stay home and off of TV. I stopped watching the show because of Danielle, now I can't watch the show because of you. You owe the audience and your co-stars an apology for your inexcusable behavior. Stay home and get an education. Good luck to you and your family, you'll need it!
I'm ashamed of you and how you can not hear what people are telling you. They are trying to help you become a better person. You have changed so much in the negative direction that I hope you do not return because I can not stand to see you on the show. I hope you can find yourself and they can replace you with someone else. I truly feel sorry for your family!!
I have watched this show from the very beginning and I have to say Teresa, you have changed the most of all of the housewives and not in a good way. You seem to look for ways to dig at everyone that are very hurtful. The chip that has grown on your shoulder must be so heavy for you to lash out at everyone while not taking ownership for your own actions and words. Lighten up and stop being such a miserable person and making those around you miserable. I do have to say you are a master at turning words around to make you the victim which just shows how unhappy you really are in life.
