Teresa Giudice

Teresa responds to all the cookbook chaos.

on Oct 12, 2011

I guess I should be happy that as hard as she looked for something to be upset with me about, this was all she could come up with (and you know if I'd done anything to her family ever, it would be on US Weekly and RadarOnline by now!). I do appreciate the attention she's brought to Fabulicious as sales have skyrocketed, but I'd much rather she just gave me positive recognition as a friend to help my book.

Looking back at all the seasons and all the times I talked about Caroline, I can't believe how many times I said I considered her "family." I shouldn't have been so blind. She never once said the same thing about me. In fact, I don't remember her even calling me a friend. I was always Dina's friend or Jacqueline's friend, or "that crazy Teresa."

I'm not a perfect friend or a perfect person and I've never claimed to be. I definitely do react to people coming after me and my family and now my livelihood, but it does take me a long time to get there. I let a lot slide off my back, including a whole season of insults from Caroline and her crew. But I'm proud to say I don't attack. I don't go looking for trouble with anyone, not Danielle, not Kim G., not the Manzos, not anyone. I don't plant fake stories, I don't bully, I don't try and get people to gang up on someone. It's just not my style. I'm too busy living my life, moving forward, and appreciating my gorgeous family. I wish Caroline and Jacqueline would stop with the drama for once. They seem to thrive on it, almost obsessively. Ashley said it herself this season that anywhere there's drama, her mom puts herself in the middle of it.
