Coming on the show was a decision Joe and I made. I’ve been on the show for almost two years now, and I think it’s time for her to let it go. I didn’t come on to ruin her. Are you seeing me do anything to ruin her? I’ve had multiple chances to talk about her personal issues, the bankruptcy, the marriage rumors, etc. and I don’t. How can she not see that? I’m sorry Teresa has such an issue with me, but it’s time she moves on and gets over it like she said she has.
I think Teresa needs to realize that this is not her show, it's Bravo's. The name of the show is The Real Housewives of New Jersey, not The Teresa Show.
There is a reason for everything. She is on the show because Jacqueline recommended her to be on. Does Jacqueline torture her every day for it? NO. I think it's safe to say that if I was on the first season and the show came to her to invite her on as well she would NOT have said no. It's easy for her to say she wouldn't have signed on, because that's all she can point to when she’s trying to turn people against me.
Teresa's financial issues were already out in the open and the tabloid covers and "posed pictures" were already happening well before we joined the show. Teresa’s thing is her cookbooks, I would never dream of writing one or trying to take that from her. I know some people try to say we are similar, but we are VERY different people and I'm not trying to live her life.
