Can't wait to meet you all in Philly this weekend! Check my website for my latest news, photos, and appearances http://www.teresagiudice.com/ or follow me on Twitter (@Teresa_Giudice) or Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Teresa-Giudice/122688361577.
PS: Jay Mohr, I know you're in love with the Manzos and hang out with them in your personal life, but send me your address. I'd love to send you my cookbooks since you obviously didn't read them. It's weird to me that you would literally judge someone's work without reading it. That would be like me telling the world you were not a funny comedian without ever having seen one of your shows. You of all people know not everyone's going to get all your jokes, but to bash my book for jokes you didn't even read yourself is sad.
(And if you had invited ME to your Jersey show, I might have even let you motorboat me before we walked through the door together. It is an old Italian custom where I come from, and you just lost out, my friend.)
You need to stop defending yourself and that uncouth husband of yours. You keep harping on about how family is so important to you. If your family and kids really are as important as you say they are, then stop talking and do something!
Don't worry, Teresa, we can all see exactly what Caroline and company are attempting to do. By the way, Caroline is lying when she says she never considered you a friend. There is an interview in US Magazine where she says you two were always good friends. She also said something interesting in her Bravo blog. Take a look:
May 26, 2009:- "Teresa is the modern day Lucille Ball. She is an absolute riot! I always laugh when Teresa is around."
Watch out Melissa and Kathy, you're next aboard the Caroline hate train and her takedown of you won't be pretty.
The fact is Teresa that love you or not, you and your family carry them. Your castmates have all jumped the shark at this point and the Manzos and Lauritas are nothing short of ridiculous. So many of us in NJ are shaking our heads wondering why on earth Bravo doesn't bring some of their dirt to the forefront because as we ALL know, there's alot. As an aside, I am 100% italian descent, but didn't get the great cooking gene from my grandmothers or mother so I just bought your book because of all the nonsense to see for myself and I'm looking forward to trying out a recipe or two :)
Everything you said in your blog is true. Caroline and her family bashed you the entire season. I think she was just looking for anything to be mad at you about . All of them are jealous of your success and are ganging up on you. Its clear that Bravo favors the Manzos, so everything with them is shown in a good light. I will not watch anohter season if all we are going to get is everyone vs. Teresa episodes. Good luck with everything.
I watch your show every week, read your blogs and everyone elses and all I can say to you is, stay just the way you are. You are a wonderful person and mother and friend. People will always be jealous and envious of you. I read your book and never once did I think you were picking on Caroline. When I saw the final episode, I had to go back and reread it again and I still didn't see it. I don't know why she is feeling this way but let it go (which i am sure you have). You don't need to surround yourself with negative people like that. That are only happy when something is giong wrong in your life. Good riddance Caroline. Her story line is boring and I couldn't believe how she would talk about you behind your back and her kids too. So disrespectful. She shouldn't spit up in the air, it always comes back down!! Good luck to you and your family.
BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO!!!! Teresa you're amazing and you made this entire season fun for me! It's the first time I watched an entire season of Real Housewives of New Jersey and really fell in love with you, you ARE the show! You ARE the draw, the funny, the entertainment, so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for a GREAT SEASON!
Love you doll and if I decide to watch next season (not sure, I really cannot stand the Manzo's) I will be watching for you and your gorgeous family! Love them and you deserve your own show! xo
PS I own Fabulicious and was just as shocked by the controversy so much so I had to go back and re-read to see if there was something I missed and I didn't. You're hilarious and thank you again for a great season xo
Teresa, I have watched this show since the beginning. I am an Italian/American and have had some struggles with my family too. I am over watching this show and you. The drama that you bring is so over the top. You are not truthful when your with the others, your jokes sting and hurt , and you laugh like a callous person. Your own family has been through so much and your kids have been tainted by the drama, and still you are mean. You didn't start that way, and along the way the other woman tried again and again to let you know things were off. You as always yelled screamed and carried on. Im so over you and this show. All you need is love...............and a good dose of forgiveness...................
Teresa- you go girl! It's so obvious all the other girls are just plain jealous of you and have nothing to show for themselves. They are pathetic. You rise above it. And, thank you for telling us the proper pronunciation of your last name- I like it so much more ;-) I think you and Ramona and Sonja should get a show of your own- IT would be fabulocity!!! xoxo
Can't wait to buy your third cookbook! Hey did you see that Caroline called you so funny" like Lucille Ball" in one of her Bravo blogs from 2009? It's all over the internet, Caroline's true colors are showing. Your fans love your Teresa and you never have to defend yourself to us. Will be watching you on Celebrity Apprentice and know you will bring it!
Wow! You have turned me off for good. I believe the Manzos stood up for you from the beginning, through the Danielle drama, your own misfortunes and so forth. I think they got tired of your super ego and how much better you pretend to be than everyone else. You really need to do some soul searching before you have no one left.
Teresa, you just don't get it! Watching you this season has been so frustrating! I used to like you but now I'm just annoyed....
Love, love love you!!!!!! Best blog you have ever written. The truth always comes out. Caroline Manzo's behavior is nothing but APPALLING and its evident to the viewers. To think she has a radio show is absolutely puzzling to me. Anyone who is seeking her advice should see a psychiatrist.
Best blog EVER!! All of it totally makes sense, and if anyone stops to think for a second they will realize it too... Best of luck to you Teresa! Way to keep your head high through all of this!
Good for you Teresa! Great Blog! Some people still try to stay relevant and you have shown us that you do not have to jump on a band wangon to prove that to anyone!!!
Well done Teresa, well done. This is why we love you. And as someone who has both of your cookbooks (loved them both by the way) I know it was all in good fun. Love you!!!
Wow Teresa!!! GOOD FOR YOU AND ABOUT TIME! I'm glad you are standing up for yourself, finally! You were treated so badly this season because you have become the star of the show... As you should be - you shine so much more brightly than the rest of them. Love love love you!
Alert!!!!! Nice comment about T... Hurry to the delete button..
Miss T, I love your blog.. It's sad how the Manzos "jokes/constant insults" have been defended.. Jaculines opinion Of loyalty should be defined as "say whatever you want as long as it is nice about them and crappy about you".. This bull**** is getting really annoying! These idiots wouldn't know loyalty if it smacked them in the face.. ( but the smacking is reserved for their classy/loyal family)
Go get 'em girl!Beautifully written,and I wish you well!I love the show,and truly cannot ever remember you saying anything negative about the Manzos.Keep your chin up & keep moving forward!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU TERESA!! You are the best on the show! Granted there were times when you put your foot in your mouth a bit but I can still see through the acts in Melissa (who your bother takes her side NO MATTER WHAT) Caroline (Come on even her own son said he wasn't mad at what you said in the book and she's gonna act like you said something so horrible? I wish she would comment on the "jokes" her and her family and friend were making in the van about you your family and your book.) Kathy (Seems nice but she DOES throw digs. Very passive agressive that one.) Jacqueline (she's just tagging along the "Let's hate Teresa this season" bandwagon.) Jay (he loves Gregg so anything he or the Manzos say he'll be all over it!) Stay strong in life & God will bless you. Stay positive Tre! Keep God in your life!
This is what I think, that it's all stupid. as long as you have apoligized to caroline then she should get over it. youknow how she is, very much mama bear gaisnt her childen. I will say at times you were very vious towards melissa and Kathy . so I see why caroline is acting the way she is. she wants you to change your way of being! but you are you1 a great1 mom, wife, sister and friend. please keep the peace teresa you are so much better than all that crap that is being said. make your peace with caroline and keep it with your own family!
teresa you hang in there ... if mellissa and kathy has not yet showed their true colors and intensions to hurt you on season 3 ... they will on either season 4 or 5 ... i just dont believe that melissa and kathy did not go on the show to purposely distroy you.. and detatch you from friends and make you look crazy ... because if they didnt they would have tried to make things work out before the show aired ... melissa is jealous of you and wants ur season 1 and 2 life ... she seeded her way into the lives of jacq and caroline like a total wannabee .. lets see if she can keep up...
p.s im sick of her trying to play the innocent role and "omg no teresa i never said that"
i could see right through her
Ok, Teresa, I have really liked you and defended you, but this season was (sadly) like watching you unravel. I do think Melissa and Kathy weaseled their ways in and then helped fuel any fires between you and the other girls.....BUT.....
.....sometimes it's better to just sit back and say NOTHING! Let them keep grabbing for the attention. If you give them enough time, and a shovel - they'll eventually dig their own holes.
I think you should quit the show, forget about Caroline & Jaq and focus on your family - your brother and his family. Best wishes xxoo
Tre congratulations, Caroline is a bully, never mind her. Focus on yourself and your family. I and a lot of people can see through Caroline. Keep on working hard you will reep your reward.
OMG Tre. I am so sad for you this season. I love you and will continue to back you up. Initially I thought the comments in the cookbook could be hurtful. Now, I'm not so sure why there is such an uproar. I noticed how much the Manzo's dogged you this season and didn't like it one bit. I'm so sorry you all have fallen out. I wish you the best and please continue to be yourself. You are so right about your personality and loyalty to your friends. We love you girl!
Let me start off by saying I love love love Teresa! I was the first one in line when she came to do her book signing at Moehegan Sun Casino! She was down to earth, nice and actually talked to me.
That being said I love Caroline and Jacqueline too and I hate to think that their friendship with Teresa is over. I can say this season of RHONJ was slightly disappointing. I loved the first 2 seasons so much and I think the reason why they were so successful and resonated with viewers was because of the family dynamic and value of the friendships. I can say that I love the Manzos, Lauritas and Guidices for the way their families are there is always something going on that I can relate too. That being said I was very upset to see the way the Manzo kids and Greg Bennett slammed Teresa this season. Was this not the same Teresa that you went to her house in the Catskills, attended her house for poker night and "family" dinners etc. I don't get how all season it seemed to be slam and critize Teresa. I hope that Jacqueline, Caroline and Teresa can work things out.
If this is the way RHONJ is going to continue I don't know if I can continue to watch. I will continue to support Teresa (I have both her cookbooks they are AWESOME you should try them out!). I can't say I'm a big fan of Kathy and Melissa. They really were brought on the show to cause problems. RHONJ is one of my favorite shows because it was just the right amount of drama and showed again the friendships of these women. Please Bravo back to basics, go back to what worked during season 1 and 2. I almost hate to admit this but I would rather see Danielle Staub back rather then Melissa and Kathy.
Best Blog! I wish everyone else would see what hypocrites Don Caroline and her family are!! They are all A-holes, for lack of a better word! Love you Teresa!
This blog is what I have thinking all season. I think Caroline is a wonderful mother but not a wonderful friend. She was horrible to you all season. Who needs a friend like that. Bravo bring back Dina!
Hi Teresa, I believe that Caroline and the rest of the family over reacted - Plain and simple. If this was something that really bothered her she should had spoken to you about it and moved on - This is crazy to loose a frienship over this - or is it a publicity stunt??? Good luck with your book!
Teresa, what a great blog!
Caroline is sooo transparent. She did nothing but bash you all season along with her entire family and their pet monkey Greg. What they did was mean-spirited. Now they are feigning all this mock outrage over a couple of sentences they chose to take out of context.
Stay strong. I think you will see just how many fans you have and how many more you have gained over this hateful display and pile-on by the other cast members.
Hey Teresa !! Just ignore Caroline, she has become nothing more than an old busy body, nothing more. Caroline is so stuck on herself, she seriously needs a reality check ! They are all jealous of you, nothing more. Stay away from them and concentrate on your family.
Teresa! Teresa! Teresa! What you have always had going for you was your innate likability. That's not going to be enough to save you from shrill, mean-spirited stuff like above. STOP!
"The Marco Sisters" are so transparent. Shame on them. The biggest disappointment of Season 3 is how readily, Caroline and Jac used the opportunity (provided by the manipulative Marco's) to turn on you. Good Blog.
Hi Teresa! I think the Manzons and Lauritas over reacted - specially knowing how good of a friend you have been to them. I think they should have taken into consideration where the writing/comments were coming from and instead they twisted averything. Caroline should have spoken to you in private and clear it out. I agree in how you are raising your girls, keep up the good work and best of luck! Don't sweat it!
