Let me put it this way. If you were at the grocery store tomorrow and you saw your sister or your mother on the cover of a magazine saying she was "bankrupt," "getting a divorce," "scared to lose her kids," "going to jail," etc. would you keep walking past it and think, "Oh gee, that's fake, I'm sure of it."? Would you never think twice about it or mention it again? If you say yes, you must be a cold-hearted person. Wouldn't you call your sister or mother and ask her if everything is OK? Even if, on the outside, nothing appeared to be true, wouldn't you want to know what the heck that was all about? BE REAL!
I understand that the Giudices’ bankruptcy is none of my business, but she did make it public knowledge and then more so by putting it in the press. She made it everyone's business. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: NOBODY ON THE SHOW EXPOSED THE GIUDICES’ BANKRUPTCY BUT THE GIUDICES THEMSELVES! Who remembers? She told me about it on camera for the first time. She and her husband are the ones who kept talking about it on camera AND they are the ones that kept filming with her attorney about it.
I didn't think that I was "calling Teresa out on camera" by asking her about an article that was printed in a NATIONAL magazine. There was nothing I brought up that Teresa had not already exposed herself. Wouldn't she be happy to clear them up, especially the articles insulting her friends and family? For sure she would want to set the record straight, right? Maybe I needed to pay her for that information in order for her to speak to me. People were buying Teresa's products out of pity, thinking they were poor and needed help. People around town were starting to notice that her big lifestyle hadn't changed and started saying that the Giudices were con artists, and were part of a big scam to get people to buy her products. People felt like they were getting played.
