Terea Giudice thinks Strippergate has been blown way out of proportion.

I'm just so over all of this backwards, made-up drama. (Whoever created the Alice in Wonderland picture with Andy as the Mad Hatter, I love love, love, it!) By this point last year, everyone in the cast knew that Melissa had definitely been in contact with Danielle and told her private things (lies, actually) about my family to try and purposefully and publicly bring me down. And it worked, since because of Melissa, Danielle knew just which buttons to push at the Season 2 Reunion. I reacted, flipped out, and almost flipped Andy. A terrible day I wish never happened. Thank you, Melissa!

When I found out -- by Danielle outing Melissa on WWHL, not by Melissa owning and admitting it -- I forgave her. I truly don't believe she would forgive me for something that evil, but I did forgive her. I didn't wait for a year to see how I would look on TV to forgive her. I did it right away. Yes, I wanted my family to be whole that bad!

What I don't understand is how Caroline and Jacqueline, who had their own family buttons pushed by Danielle, buttons that ended up in legal cases and drama with their children(!), think it's no big deal that Melissa was working with Danielle this whole time. I didn't get it, but OK... But then to pretend to be so disgusted and upset with a possible/fake/not really "set-up"? What? How screwed up are their priorities exactly?

I'm not gonna lie, I don't really see what the big deal is here. Someone Melissa used to work with said "hi" to her at a fashion show and then left. I don't know what his intentions were, if he thought it was funny, but seriously, big f---ing deal. She used to work at a bar, he worked there too, maybe she danced, maybe she wore a tank top, maybe she only stopped by to empty the trash on her way home from church. Who knows, but again, big deal. The Angelo guy didn't say anything bad to her, wasn't mean or violent, didn't have secret pictures to leak to the press, wasn't involved in a legal case with her... the whole thing was a big fat nothing. The entire scandal is that maybe Melissa danced? I'm sorry, but after all the hype, it doesn't even look like a set-up to me, more like a let-down. I have to say it again: big f---ing deal. Who cares if Melissa danced? As long as she doesn't plan on opening a car wash and recruiting my girls to work there, I don't care.
