Teresa Giudice

Teresa explains why she can't discuss certain parts of her life.

on May 7, 20120

The tabloids and "sources" have tried their hardest to dig up dirt on us, but there really isn't any. We had a very public financial hard time, like a lot of people in this economy. There's been a million stories accusing Joe of cheating on me or me leaving him, but there's never been any truth to it or we still wouldn't be together and have such a strong marriage.

The one thing I can't always be open about though is open legal cases. Not because I'm trying to hide anything, but because that's what your lawyers tell you -- don't talk about open legal cases, because it could be twisted against you. It's common sense. What's crazy to me though, is that my family and friends know this because of their own legal issues, yet keep bringing up mine anyway, even though I ask them not to privately and on camera. Every single person on the cast has had ugly legal issues and accusations against them. But even if they are completely untrue, you have to spend tons of money on lawyers to defend yourself. To have your friends and family talk about them on national TV can hurt your case, especially since they don't know the details. I would never sit around on camera and make casual guesses as to whose husband really did what to "allegedly" break the law or "supposedly" steal money from someone or "maybe" have defrauded this or that... It's not just morally wrong, it could hurt their case. Why would you do that to someone you care about? Especially when you're in the same boat yourself? It makes no sense to me. And yes, that's why I walk away when people keep bringing it up over and over to me.

So all of the drama for the last couple of episodes now has been over a private conversation I had with my brother off camera -- a conversation like a million others we've had with each other our whole lives. I care about Joey and try and look out for him, and he does the same for me. This one tiny little conversation though happened MONTHS before we started filming. I only wanted Joey to hear me -- not his wife, not my friends, not all of America. If I ever thought for one second that he would tell everyone we knew and bring it up on national TV out of the blue, months later, believe me, I never would have said it. If I was out to hurt him or his marriage, I wouldn't have talked to him, and only him, in private.

Teresa, I agree with everything you said! I am your biggest fan. Don't let the haters get you down. I love you!

Let me start by saying, I am a woman in my senior years, have been married twice, I've been up and I've been down. I have seen a lot and am a very good judge of character by now. Unfortunately, "youth is wasted on the young" don't remember who said it but it is so true. Every one in the world is imperfect, especially every member of RHof NJ. That doesn't mean you like them dislike them more or less or change your opinion because of one thing they did or said. It is all relative. There is something negative to say about each and everyone of them, none of them are right or wrong all the time. Let's also keep in mind most, if not all, are playing to the audience, they are never always being 100% truthful in everything they say. If they could all tweak themselves just a little in the right areas they might all be more lovable. ??? It is true Teresa does not seem quite with it most of the time, some may say "not the sharpest tool in the shed", but who knows what is going on in that pretty little head? Maybe she is just playing dumb till she amasses more wealth so she can kick that a--hole husband of hers to the curb. That would be the smartest thing she could ever do. She also needs to learn to discipline those children, Gia will become more of a problem then Ashely if she doesn't get taught to respect her elders. Melissa and Joe are a nice couple but both very immature, and Melissa dressing for the camera, certainly not as a "Jesus loving" mother should. She is looking for fame there is no doubt. Caroline should be ashamed of making that statement about Lauren ... having to live under her brothers shadows, they are both so handsome and slim or something to that effect. Has she looked at Chris??? Handsome??? A face only a mother could love. Lauren is beautiful, the best looking of the whole family. Lauren has been bullied by that family I can tell. I do love Kathy, but one must remember she needs to stay loyal to the part of the family who is closest to her, right now if Theresa was smart she would make amends with her, she is the best person on the show with the best and purest heart. I have to say I like Rich in a strange sort of way, any man who shows so much love for his wife and family is okay in my book. He is a good dad too, those children are well raised you can tell, much more so than any other children on that show. Teresa my sweet young woman you need to get a dose of reality, keep on going for the money there is nothing wrong with that, but stop letting your husband treat you like a piece of meat, he is disrespectful to you and drinks too much, think about it, am I wrong?? Love all the people on the show to some extent, I just wonder what would happen if they all did start showing their true colors. I guess Joe Giudice does, or is he playing a role too?

Teresa with all due respect, I think that Melissa is NOT the one tearing you and your brother apart. I think it is "your" husband Joe who is tearing you and Joey apart. From what I have been seeing on the last few episodes your husband Joe curses "everybody" out. It seems that he hates every person involved with the RHWONJ. It is RARE to see him say "anything" nice about anyone on the show. I have seen how he curses the living day lights out of your brother and YOU DONT say anything. YOU do not stop him. You dont say anything to defend your brother no matter how angry or upset you may be at your brother, Joes IS STILL your brother. I am NOT saying that Joey is right all the time because if you really look at things NO ONE is 100% right ALL the time. I might be wrong about this but at this point in time I dont think so, but I believe that your husband Joe hates Joey and Richie because "right now" they are "financially" better off. I am not saying that your Joe is a bad guy or anything similar. All I am saying is that MAYBE just MAYBE it hurts seeing someone else financially better off. I want to ask you and Joe to hang in there things will be looking up again, just keep having faith in God and trust one an other and have Joe STOP talking crap about people around him. KARMA is a true BXXXXX. Good Luck and Best Wishes OH and arm yourself with lots and lots of patience lol Gia is only the first of many TWEEN years.

I’m just going to say this, and btw this is my first time feeling the need to comment. I absololutely LOVE Teresa and always have. Although, I’m not always happy with things she says or does, I’m still on her side. That’s LOYALTY! Just because her family has had time to watch and study all of the seasons and see what sells, what doesn’t, what people like, and what they don’t; now they wan’t to come on and rip her apart. That’s complete BS. Joey needs to grow a set and become a man. Melissa has absolutely nothing to do with his family. His first loyalty is to his family. If Melissa and him didn’t come to this agreement before the nuptials that’s his problem to fix. Not Teresa’s or his parents.

Also, of course Melissa was caring for Tre’s kids on camera. She’s a fame whore! Bravo doesn’t like Tre, and that’s clear! Andy can’t stand her or her husband, and that’s clear. She really can only rely on her fans to keep her around. Melissa is a copycat. She wants to be like Teresa so bad it is sickening. Now that Teresa is getting a little older, she feels she can step in and take her spot. Which most viewers seem to be letting her do. Like the man who gets tired of his wife and finds something younger and new to play with. As far as her speech. Joey speaks pretty much the same way. If you listen to her speak Italian there isn’t a pause or stutter in the sentence. Aside from starting Bravo, I’m sure it was never a necessity to sharpen up her English skills. With everything she’s been through and still going through emotionally, financially, and her familial problems. She’s just trying to tough it out and keep a happy face. Her problem is that she needs to realize that; yes, it’s okay to be wrong, and also that it’s okay to not always be strong. She’s heading towards, if not already, a nervous break down. One can only take so much. We are human. We’re not robots

I have to say you are an amazingly strong woman! I think I would have crumbled having to deal with what you have dealt with in the past few years...and with young children, too.

Be strong enough to just let the animosity go. He's your only brother and he clearly loves you.

Teresa, just because things in your marriage and your life are going bad it doesnt mean that th same thing is happening in Melissa and Joes. Every one who is on here talking crap about Melissa being a gold digger is simply blind. Melissa Love Joe, and it shows big time. Caroline is not negative, she is REAL. She says things exactly how they are and it shows that people on thi show are not as tough as they make themselves out to be if they cant take someone telling them the truth to their face.

Teresa - I have watched your show from the beginning and I was always a big fan of yours, but you have changed and it is very obvious. I am sure things get twisted around on the show, but you say very mean and vicious things about Melissa and you need to remember that Joe is her husband now - they are best friends and they SHOULD share everything. On the other hand, your Joe has a very nasty attitude and is extremely judgmental. He is obnoxious and I can't see how you stay with him. Sometimes I wish I could reach out and slap him when he talks to you - he is so rude. I don't see how anyone can forgive the things he says about them.

As I said, I know that the media manipulates some of the situations, but you really need to take a hard look at yourself. I was all set to hate Melissa after the way you went on and on about her, but she is a nice person and it really does appear that you are jealous of the relationship between her and your brother. You need to get past that - otherwise you are going to end up losing your brother forever.

Sad to see so many supporters of Teresa, she is not a good role model for anyone. You have really lost your mind if you think she deserves her own show?!?!? I hope Bravo replaces her and boots her off the show, she is bringing them down.

Your brother Joe cannot be a substitute husband. His priority should be his wife and children. He loves you, but he shouldn't be over your house all of the time ignoring his family. Jealousy is a terrible thing.

I have been watching house wives of NJ since the first show, I have to say what a crock all of these women are, who claim to be your "friend". It seems to me that all of the women and I will name names, Melissa, Caroline, Kathy, and Jackie have turned on you, it sickens me the way your brother has betrayed you to all of your so called friends, and how your "friends" have all jumped the band wagon like little sheep, going out of their way to make you feel like it is all you who is causing the problems. Teresa, none of these friends and relitives are even considering what you have been going through, and all of your friends and relitives are trash talking about you behind your back! I know you see the shows and know what I am talking about, and it bothers me so I know it must be killing you to watch this with your own eyes. What doesn't make sense to me is how can your own brother who clearly knows the depth of love you have always had for him, can blab personal statements that were made by you to him in a personal conversation meant to only be heard by him! And Yet he can't wait to tell all of your friends and his wife what you said, Joe had no right to do that to you and he acts as if he is such a great guy when it seems to me all he is looking for is more attention ( Camera time) and is jealous of the attention you got when you first became a housewife. I will say that your cousin Kathy seems to have your back on camera, however she lets her husband say all sorts of bad things about you, and he admitted to tell his own children to not invite their friends to their own end of school party because you might embarrass them, once again implying it is all you who starts crap , yet tells Joe your brother how he is going to Canada to visit his own sister and how much she means to him, I have to say all of the people in your life are just awful and behave like mean girls including the males, I refuse to say men because they are not men. And for the love of God do not ever take any advise from Caroline, this woman has raised her daughter to be bullied by all of the men in her home, daddy included about her weight, why Caroline sits and listens and laughs at their stupid remarks, how dare that woman give advise to anyone ever and shame on her for allowing her daughter to take that from them, knowing how bad she feels about herself. And Melissa is a snake in the grass and I agree with you 100% she would leave your brother in a heartbeat for someone with more cash! and Jackie the poor victim of the show, has also jumped the lets trash talk behind Teresa's back and pretend to be a good friend to her face, it was in her home where Joe and Melissa felt so comfortable that they could trash talk you, thats a problem, friends like that who needs enemies, I never thought in a million years Kim G would be the one to have your back! Sad thing is these are your friends and family she is defending you too......what a world we live in eh?

Teresa,

Your husband was on point about all of them. Sorry but your brother should have never ran his mouth to Melissa. However, Melissa does control him. She even admitted it at the reunion show. Melissa said, I never control him in front of Gia. So, she control him when Gia isn't around? Melissa is a s--t starter and Caroline and the rest of these fools are GREEN WITH ENVY of your success. Love you Teresa..I'm going to order your new book soon. I have the other two. Your a great cook. My family loves everything I cook from your cookbooks. Thanks for sharing all your great family recipes. BRAVO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE TERESA HER OWN SHOW.

Teresa, sweetie, you need to cut out whichever "ingredientses" from your "kool-aid" that are feeding your delusions. When Joey said you'd lost touch with reality, he was being kind. Unless my television's broadcasting a completely different version of the show, he was--and IS, absolutely correct.

Tre, I see the way your bad attitude and jealousy has affected you this season. I understand that you and your husband are going through alot of stuff this season, but I think the way you are treating your family and friends is horrible!! You and Joe need to owen up to your part in all of this... PS your husbands behavior has been awfull this season... I know you luv him but when are u gonna stop giving him a pass for being nasty??

You need to accept what you are responsible for and quit pointing your finger at everyone else. Teresa, ever heard the phrase "if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all", you should consider that as your personal mantra from now on.

OMGREALLY?
OMGREALLY?

Sorry, but I don't get you.... you wanted answers, but didn't like what you heard so you turn Melissa into the problem? I know you have been through a lot this past year, and I am sure that is part of your issue. The thing you said about Jac being in the middle because she puts herself in the middle.. I hope after viewing this episode, you saw that you are a big cause of that too... you put her in the middle and it was clear on camera when you were drilling her about the conversation she may have had with Melissa.

I really hope that you are doing better at this point in your life then you were at the time of this taping... mentally..

Yep, you love your family and your extended family. I know it will work. It will all come together like a good novel! I can see on the inside! I'm on your side with this one! I believe you might be in a valley right now with the friends and family thing but it will all come back!!!! You go girl!!!!!! P.S. forgot to put jcluv

How come you have no problem exploiting your family in the tabloids for money but can't speak to your family about it? hmmm seems odd. I think it's odd to say that nothing is Caroline and Jacqueline's business but you put it in tabloids and make it the WORLD'S business. The only way someone gets information out of you is if they have a check in their hand. you claim that Melissa and Kathy being on the show has opened the door to all your family drama. But all your'e doing is making money off the drama by selling stories to the tabloids about your family. in MY opinion that's hypocritical......

I can't stand Caroline, Jackline, or Melissa. I only watch to see Teresa. In fact I always watch Celebrity Apprentice first and then see if I can also catch her on Bravo later because I know I will have have to live through the torchure of everyone bullying her on RHWNJ.

They are all so jealous of her and her success! She's jealous...please. Get lives ladies! Wine to your husbands like you all do. You don't see Teresa whining to her husband about all of you. She tells him stories but doesn't pathetically whine to him about all of you like you do to your husbands.

Go Teresa!

I love the housewives have watched all of them from the beginning I think Caroline likes to be the head of everything and only her word is supposed to be but what they are doing to Teresa is rediculous because I am a firm believer that she had a form of ADD and does not seem to understand things the way other people do it obvious and the family shoudl realize that she seems in a world of nonunderstanding because of this and should be talked to by someone or she will never have an easy time I love her and you should all undrstand her feelings because she has no where else to turn. You should all think about what I am saying and help her instead of going against her. She cannot understand life since she is in a world of not growing up and her thoughts are as a child sometimes thats why she cannot understand what is happening these children or adults need a lots of understanding no matter what nationality you are Love her as she is and understand her as I have an adult like that and it is hard to understand all of this but she definitely had adult ADD and cannot be the same as you all are I love all of you and love the show

wow i read these comments and think that most of you must watch through chablis goggles (those are kinda like the beer goggles that men sometimes wear). teresa is NOT innocent in all of this and everyone is NOT just dumping on her for no reason. teresa is not very (.. um.. lets say she will never become a member of MENSA)... anyway, she needs to realize that what she says effects other people. she doesnt get a free pass just because she is is not a rocket scientist.

Hold in there teresa... these people are pushing your buttons wanting you to snap. Im deeply dissapointed that your brother has done what he has done because in my eyes I feel he came on the show with an agenda with his wife to bring you down and the issues you guys have are private and goes a long way. We viewers can never really know why things went the way it did but your brother's resentment towards you is toxic. He puts down your husband so I dont know why he complains. I like how you are taking on your career and stepping up when things are hard, not everyone can do that. What irritates me is to what extend they they are willing to go through and rub in to everyone's face how fortunately rich and hardworking they are. Their agenda is not a good one and the expense is family- how sad

Teresa, your husband is awful with the way he talks about your family.... I wish you would have told him to stop with the name calling as it is childish for a grown man to talk like a 16 year old in girl in high school. It seemed like he was just taking pot shots at everyone. Enough is enough!!

OMG whoever it was above that suggested please give teresa her own show i totally agree i am tirerd of watching RHONJ and the only reason i watch it is for teresa but its getting very difficult to watch the other women and i just may have to forego and stop watching completely unless you kick most of the other ones off or please just leave them for any people that actually like watching them and let teresa go off on her own maybe even dina and her family (husband daughter not the manzo side) and teresa and her family (husband kids and maybe husbands sided and her mom and day) and we would love to watch they can do fashion events outings with their friends day in the lives with the kids any events etc...............trust me she is the excitement and the drama the rest are annoying so split her apart from the girls and let her go on her own it wont disappoint bravo...........

after reading lots of these comments, i feel like i'm in the twilight zone. we have watched the same show and came up with 2 different view points. the way i see it is that teresa thinks the world revolves around her. as long as she is center of attention everything is great, but whenever that doesnt happen there is hell to pay. you seem like quite the hot head.

DONNA THE psychologist, you must not be a very good psychologist because the very last thing that Melissa is doing is manipulating anyone, come on really? She is successful on her own, she certainly don't need to ride Teresa's coattails for sure, I think you would also notice that Melissa is very secure with herself which Teresa is not, yet your professional opinion is that she is manipulating Teresa or anyone else for that matter. I call that malpractice on your part, or a very bad judge of charater. I think the very last thing Melissa needs is to use someone like Teresa, if anything Teresa is not someone that brings out the best in people and if Melissa wanted to she would distance herself from Teresa and leave her hang out to dry but she has allowed this to continue and it is my guess so that Teresa can be in the fore front and maybe make a few extra bucks, that's what family's are for. So Psychologist DONNA, you couldn't be further from the truth. Goodnight all

Teresa I think you and Joe need to work on your sibling relationship first and then bring your spouses in to get along. Fortunately, Joe is one of those guys who tells everything to their wives, my husband does that. It doesnt make you a bad person, I dont know how the comment wassaid, but I can see how it can hurt a man's feelings, I have a younger brother, whom I am close with now, and even if I had heard something (which come on Teresa, we know she wouldnt leave Joe) I wouldnt say anything....Some things are better left unsaid

loyal viewer since the start
loyal viewer since the start

i want to start by saying I have LOVED you from the start. With that being said YOU ARE NOT THAT SAME WONDERFUL PERSON!!!!! It seems you do ALOT of back peddling or damage control these days. You write things in your book abour people and when called out on it you say "I didn't insult you". I'm sorry to inform you that you don't get to tell people if they feel insulted or if you've hurt their feelings. You weren't sorry for insilting them, because according to you, you didn't. You were sorry that someone called you out on it!! We are all aware that there are plenty of things that go on that we don't see. However the way you speak to your brother about his wife, it will only be a matter of time before you have no relationship AT ALL AND NEITHER WILL YOUR CHILDREN!!! This I speak of with personal experience unfortunately. My husband of almost 15 yrs did not speak to his brother for 5 yrs and also missed out of those 5 yrs of his beautiful goddaughters life. He fortunately for everyone saw the error of his ways. He and my husband have know made up and he's apologized to me also. It's one thing to speak of a siblings spouse it's another to seem like you NEVER HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THE SPOUSE!! As a married person you know the bond you share with your husband. Every negative thing you say about Melissa is going to drive a larger and larger wedge between you and your brother!!!! Maybe it's the stress of whatever legal issues you're dealing with but I wish the old Teresa would come back. Best of luck with all hope you take this for what it's worth!

Teresa, first let me say, I used to be a huge fan of yours, but recently you seem to be living in another world. First, let me just start by saying, your brothers wife should always be his first priority, he should not withhold things that you say to him, he needs to be honest with his wife, second, you have been wrong pretty much the entire time over the course of this argument, you had no right to suggest that if your sister in law had a better and richer guy come around that she would go for it, that is just about the meanist thing you could have ever said to him or her. He has no obligation to withhold any information from his wife in regards to you, I know you think you're special, you're NOT, why don't you just be how you were before, personally I feel that you are being very dramatic for the camera's in order to get more face time or as your other fans have said above, your own show, it's really sad what you're willing to give up in order to do this, why must you destroy everything else around you to make some stupid point, of which you are doing a really bad job of anyway. Let's look at that, first of all, you do NOT have a very good way with words, sometimes you appear to be searching for the correct word and I"ve seen you even look to the Bravo staff to bail you out in such cases. In short, you're not very bright, your sister in law is far more smarter then you, she knows how to speak properly. You have some wild, almost insane way of looking at things that are often amusing on TV but now looking back and seeing it, I feel sorry for you, you have managed to distance your family, friends and I didn't want to go there but even from what I've seen your girls even seem to be confused by you, you need to be the adult in the room and not seek approval from such young children. Now as for your husband, he is such a trouble maker, I think all of the years of steroid abuse have gone to his head, he is making poor life choices, he doesn't act very mature most of the time and you enable him way to much. Jail, Jai, Jail, there I've said it, I'm sure by now you have moved on anyway but Teresa, the real world is the real world, no matter now much you want to deny the FACTS they are what they are, deal with them and if you need to question anything, question why your husband made such poor life choices. This is what you should be doing, not trying to turning everything around in order to blame everything on somebody else. People make mistakes Teresa, own up to yours and move on, it's not worth living in this hell that you are living in, I'm sure or at least I hope by now all of these things have been resolved not only for your kids sake but for your sake as well, you do deserve to be happy, you are just going abou it the entire wrong way and that is sad, so in a nut shell I'm saying to you that you are not a bright woman, but you can be smart sometimes, you're playing Bravo like a fiddle so goodluck with that, I really mean it, they are exploiting you for your ablility and willingness to appear stupid, insensitive, clueless and many, many other things, Move on with your life Teresa, it's not worth it, I know you are the current bread winner but don't you have a limit on how you'll allow yourself to be exploited? I wish you all the best Teresa, I'd even love to be your life coach if you should need one, I'd never just tell you what you what to hear, I'd tell you what you need to hear, to be honest with you which is something that you have not been able to do for a very long time. Get it together Teresa and Happy Mother's Day. All the very best and if you need an honest assessment on your life, let me know, jkelly3031at aol.. com, you know how to read that, take care

Teresa: You need to face the fact that your brothers love, time and attention and first priority are his children and his wife. As it should be. Sisters are a very distant third place. Any thing you say to a husband is always shared with the wife and vice versa. I don't know why you don't get this. The only way to become closer to your brother is to respect his wife and kids. If that doesn't happen, you're the ultimate loser.

AS MY GRANDMA WOULD SAY: "SOMETIMES SELDOM SEEN MAKES THE BEST OF FRIENDS" especially when it comes to messy, manipulative family members who don't realize when enough is enough! CLearly misery loves company, i.e., the Manzos - IJS How f****ed up is Caroline's relationship with her own family at the moment? And she has the audacity of to judge?...so hypocritical!////YOU KEEP YOUR HEAD UP GIRL... +GEAUX TERESA!!!

I am sooooooo upset that some of you do not see that Teresa needs to learn how to admit she is wrong sometimes this is crazy that I am a fan but yet I can see the wrong in what she is doing and has done but reading these comments show that people take this fan thing to the gill an or it must be that you guys must be like her in a way. She was wrong about telling her brohter that!!!! She was wrong about what she wrote and if she did not feel like she was why apologize. She can dish it but can not take it and as a grown women that is just WRONG Teresa you are and was wrong I hope you grew up and made things right I really did like you until this season

Teresa you need to be the bigger person and ignore Melissa, your brother, Kathy her husband and everyone else for a while. just act like they don't exist for now because that is the only way you guys are going to find your way back to each other. for you being on Melissa case all the time you are not allowing your brother to see the real Melissa. you need to just get out of the picture. trust me if you do that you will get your brother back. be more of a listener not a talk. and always admit to your own faults because no body is perfect it makes it easier that way for everybody. and their is nothing bad if Melissa copies you should be proud about that

Teresa is NOT innocent, she throws a rock and hides her hands, she is always the victim. Every time Teresa gets called out on something she tries to make it seem like a joke or she places the blame on someone else. Why on earth would she tell her brother that his wife would leave him if someone richer came along. I believe Teresa is jealous of Joe Gorga and Melissa's relationship. She said to her brother "when you got married you stopped coming over to my house everyday" and "when I got married I still put you first but you didn't do that for me". Joe should put his family (wife and kids) first and foremost. Get a grip people, anyone that would agree that Teresa is right in this issue must be as miserable as Teresa.

I said it before and i'll say it again..Melissa knew coming on this show, that it would ruin her relationship with her husbands family!..SHE KNEW!! but she couldn't stand the fact that Teresa was getting a lot more attention then herself and came on it anyway! That's where i point my finger too! MELISSA!! Teresa was fine the other seasons until Joe and Melissa came about... Hmmmm? What's up with that Melissa?!?!!! Stab her in the back just to satisfy yourself? WHO DOES THAT?!!

I know many of you love and support Teresa, but Im wondering which show are you watching? She is clearly the issue on the show! She is quick to point the finger, but never willing to take responsibility for her part in it. She and her shady husband are insanely jealous of the Gorgas!!! Always talking loud and telling lies, she acts like a spoiled imbalanced child!

I love Teresa--don't always agree with her, but she is my favorite housewife of all. I can't stand Rich--he is such a trouble maker. He is so negative and just stirs the pot. He adds nothing to this show--hate every segment he is in I do believe that Melisa and Joe truly have Teresa's best interests at heart--she just can't see it. I think Carolyn Manzo is such a prune--I hope menopause gets the best of her! I don't understand why Joe Giudice and Teresa say negative things about people-like Rosie and calling Melissa horse face--so not nice and they know they are being taped. It just creates negative feelings among the families Teresa and Joe Guidice need to work on bringing the families back together. I really would love to see the Guidice and Gorga families happy and unified.
