Teresa Giudice

Teresa explains her comments during her meeting with the lawyer.

Some of my friends have told me they would have left Joe if they were me. I was trying to explain myself without calling anyone out specifically, and the way I described them to keep them anonymous was "Jewish." They are Jewish, but being Jewish has nothing to do with why they would have left Joe. Their religion had nothing to do with the story, I was just trying to explain myself and not use anyone's name, and my words got all jumbled. I'm so sorry if I offended anyone, but that's not what I meant at all.

I know I might have seemed standoffish at Kathy's party, but it's because I was very anxious about going there. I didn't feel welcome at my cousin's house. There was such a strange vibe toward me, even though they might have been smiling to my face. Watching the episode and seeing what they said before I got there about the holy water and exorcism, I now know what it was. I felt like I was walking into the lion's den, which is a horrible feeling when you're talking about your family…

As for Jacqueline and Ashley's family drama, I still think that it's not for any of us to judge. Ashley has always been wonderful to my face. I can't even begin to guess what Jacqueline is going through. I won't say anything negative about them here, on Twitter, or Facebook. As Housewives, enough of our lives is exposed to the world. We don't need to add to the drama by betraying our friends.
