Teresa Giudice

Teresa only cries when it comes to her relationship with Joey.

on May 14, 20120

To answer your questions, I don't read the other ladies' blogs. I hope they are all in happy, positive places as well.

Finally, I want to talk about my Joe. I love him for who he is. He's the same guy now as when I first met him when we were kids. He's old-school Italian, he says what he thinks, he's tough, but has an amazing heart. He's a great dad. He's my best friend. He's amazing.

Of course, he's not perfect. He doesn't always say the right thing. But I married him for him. I didn't marry a Simon. He doesn't wear bowties and drink tea with his pinkie up. He also didn't choose to be a Housewife. I did. And he let me. But he's happy for it to be my thing. He doesn't want to be a "House Husband" -- that's why you won't see him sit down for interviews. He lives his life, he tolerates the cameras in our house, and he lets it fly sometimes. I'm sure many of your men would be the same. In a lot of ways, I feel bad for Joe because this whole experience hasn't been really positive for him. He's a private guy who likes to go about his business. But since the show, it's hard for him to go anywhere without having to stop and take pictures and then worry that those pictures might be sold to a tabloid for a fake story. He just doesn't have a lot of tolerance for B.S.

In some ways, Richie is the same way. He does what he wants, says whatever he feels, and that's that. Yeah, I don't love the things he says about me (I never have), I don't think he's particularly funny, but I don't have to. I didn't marry him. Kathy loves him and their marriage is strong, and I want that for everyone I love.

Theresa Congrats on your book being best seller. I wish you and Joe the best in your legal issues.

I do hope you will change your decision not to go with your brother to therapy. I feel that you both hold grudges because you have said so many times about what your brother didn't do for you which is in the past. He is willing and you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to reconcile with your brother no matter what you husband says. He is blood and it's worth the effort unless in reality you don't feel its worth the effort. I don't see Melissa holding back Joey from trying to go to therapy but your husband says No. You do need therapy because you can't handle positive critism and realize that if no one cared about you they wouldn't even try to let you know what you are doing to your family & friends by allowing magazines to put anything they want for the sake of the almighty dollar. Its not worth hurting their feelings just because it sells magazines.

Teresa, I am curious how you can be so strong and vocal around every single cast member and you become a quiet little church mouse in your husband's presence. You are a classic example of an abused woman. The way he talks to you, cureses around the kids, constantly belittles your family members to you (on camera) . My guess is you can't show your anger towards him so you blow up at everybody else because you don't fear the repercusions. (look the word up inthe dictionary)

Your daughter Gia is already beginning to scream and cry when she gets mad. I wonder who she gets that from? Maybe someone should put your whole family on the Dr. Phil show and see if he can figure out the mess you're all in. Your parents must be mortified to have all your family 's dirty laundry on TV week after week. Is the money really worth trashing your family name? Blowing kisses after insulting someone is NOT normal.

I am so glad I'm Polish. You give being Italian a really bad rap. I really pity your kids with the village that is trying to raise them. They haven't a prayer.

Teresa, I think if you could just put yourself in your family's and friend's shoe's just once!, You wouldn't feel like they were out to get you; Cause just what people get to see; You are always gonna come off as a big "B"; Cause you don't even look or sound like your trying to understand where there coming from at all! You always come back with this whole "what about me thing" and I am sure that is not how you really want to be seen?, But if you keep going down the road your taking right now,Your gonna be a very lonely and very sad person. That's something I'm sure you really don't want to go through or show your very sweet girl's that are looking up to you,on how to get along with people and their own friend's and family. I see at time's that your hurting deep down,But you make it bad on yourself by not trying to listen to what your heart is telling you to do; Meaning when your heart know's something is wrong and you don't stop to hear what it's trying to tell you. Take the high road and listen to your heart.

Loved watching Teresa on Celebrity Apprentice! She was so funny, clueless about pretty much everything. I did notice she didn't dare pull the bad behavior on Celebrity Apprentice that she does on Real Housewives. Hmmm, guess she is nicer to strangers than she is to her own family and the other people in her life.

Teresa: I have been watching RHONJ since the beginning and the transformation of you and your behavior is astounding. You cannot and should not be the center of your brother's universe. It's unatural and unhealthy that you would expect to be, but you do. Whether you like it or not, his wife and children come first, then your parents and then you and your family. Joe is completely ignorant. I cannot believe you would allow him to talk to you like he does. Hope you are able to see your behavior and make the necessary changes.

Teresa, I think you are a good person at heart. But at this point you need to ditch your loser husband! Your life and public image will be greatly improved. I know you think you need him, but you don't. YOU can take care of yourself and the girls. all the best, phisig5

Gia is going to be a handful! I would have made her apologize for her behavior. That is not how you act in someone's home. I would be appalled if my kids acted like that. 10 years old is old enough to not have a temper tantrum like that!

Teresa,

I am on your side all the way. No one is perfect, and that includes Caroline. She blew my mind last season as I always thought she was a fair and square person. I was so wrong!!

Please stay exactly as you are. Not all people are Rhodes Scholars, but you can be proud of yourself. You are raising a wonderful family and are doing the best you can.

God bless you and yours.

Teresa,

Caroline and Jacqueline were completely out of line with Gia. I felt for your daughter and could not believe what I was seeing with those two. Your daughter, as most kids are, were taught that cheating is wrong. She was standing up for her values and she was completely invalidated and made to feel bad. Yes, the underlying emotion was probably there because of all the fighting between you and your brother, but the fact is - Gia was right. And she was standing her ground. Caroline and Jacqueline didn't listen to what she was saying at all and then punished her for being "disrespectful" when they were in fact being disrespectful to her. Caroline needs to get over herself. Using her power as an adult to intimdate and reprimand a 10 year old girl like that. Totally unacceptable. Don't let her do that and please don't let Joe talk down to you anymore. Set boundaries. Just like Gia was trying to do that day at Jacqueline's.

Teresa, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Your the best housewive on the show. Your a great mother to stick up for Gia. If it had been Jacqueline she would have totally went against her daughter Ashley and you see what that got her. DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY!!! Caroline and Jacqueline were out of line and the least qualified to PARENT anyone child. Who are they to try and teach Gia a lesson when there kids are the MOST DISRESPECTFUL. PLEASE!! I would have done the same thing you did regarding your baby. You don't tell them how to parent. Jacqueline is a piece of work and is totally delusional. Caroline is MRS. KNOW IT ALL. THANK GOD YOU GOT AWAY FROM ALL OF THE HATERS. YOUR HUSBAND MAY NOT HAVE HAD THE RIGHT DELIVERY REGARDING YOUR FAMILY BUT GIRL YOUR HUSBAND IS RIGHT ON POINT ABOUT STAYING AWAY FROM ALL OF THEM. WHO NEEDS FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT ALWAYS BRING YOU DOWN. ALWAYS KNIT PICKING, JEALOUS, UNSUPPORTIVE, MEAN AND JUST PLAN HATERS.

Teresa, you are wonderful..I love watching the show now because of you, it use to be because all of you seemed to handle everything in stride, but I am beginning to wonder about the rest of them..Your cousins' are so funny, and really do not talk about you the way the other housewives do, especially Melissa..She seems to be determined to tear you down..she says she doesn't want to talk about you which is fine and dandy, but as soon as someone else does she puts her two bits worth in and jabs right along with the best of them..Like the episode where Kathy's husband was talking about your cookbook to your brother at the get together they had..Melissa said she didn't want to talk about it and for a moment I thought she had grown up, but the longer Ritchy talked about it sure as punch she started jabbing at you too..in my opinion I think she wants your family all to herself and of course they are all falling for it..believe me I am dealing with 3 of my 4 sister-in-laws who are acting the same way..running and telling my husband things that I do and him coming and yelling at me before even talking to me about what went on..and it all has to do with my mother-in-law.. she's 78 and has the early symptoms of Alzeheimers and her and I get along wonderfully..we sit and talk about things from our past, we sit and laugh and we sit and cry, she calls me her daughter-in-law, but also her friend. I would never do anything at all to ever hurt this woman, I wish my mother had been more like her..a lot more. her daughters had the nerve one time to tell her that she wishes I wouldn't come to her house anymore..i respect the fact they are trying to protect her, but if they have a problem with me come to me, not my husband...and I also told Carolyn the same thing..instead when you wrote what you wrote in your cookbook, by the way i am going to get she goes running to everyone else..What what was she looking for? Sympathy..I'm with you on this one hunny..I even laughed when Lauren read the part to her..a REAL friend would have come to you and possibly even thought it was funny..she is blaming The Change for her moodiness, but it seems she's only moody when it comes to you...I think it is a card she is using to tell people how she actually has felt about you all this time. And as far as the Gia incident on Field day, you handled it beautifully, even tho I could here the anger in your voice..As a mother NO ONE has the right to talk to my child the way Gia was talked to, and vice versa..they should have let her be she seemed like she was handling it well talking to the little boy she was talking to and didn't need adult interferenc and certainly not some stupid childish book..She's growing up and Carolyn and Jacquline should realize this, having raised daughters themselves..but they say the mind is the first to go when you reach Menopause, don't know what Jacquline's excuse was.. anyway keep up the good work..I love you girl! Watch the show now to cheer you on and boo and hiss Melissa..Never have trusted her..

Not sure how things work in Jersey, but where I come from, what Caroline and Jacqueline did is EXACTLY what our support network does. It takes a village to raise a child, and I expect my friends and neighbors to act just as they did, and my husband and I do the same. Your daughter was showing absolutely no respect for her elders. It's okay to have a meltdown, given what she's going through at home with her mother and father, but it's NOT okay to act like a spoiled brat. That being said, she's learned from the best. You and your husband project anger and limited intelligence on screen, so I can't imagine what it's like behind the scenes. In all honesty, I almost feel ashamed watching this show because I feel like I'm watching a completely delusional person heading into a fatal car accident. It simply astounds me how the level of discourse devolves around certain cast members. However, I guess that's where America is headed. Delusional behavior and limited intellect is becoming the norm.

Still love ya! You are one of the reasons I still watch the show. Your brother is loyal to his wife as he should be, you are both married with kids, you cant go back like it was when you were kids. You have to share and be nice to Melissa and respect the fact that no matter what Melissa is his life now and his choice. Poor Gia looks like she could crack under the pressure of hearing and being exposed to way too much turmoil. Is all this worth it? You have had alot of problems to deal with and I really think you should find new friends.These ladies are not your friends.You handle yourself better than I would under the situations and circumstances you get in filming this show. I would have bailed along time ago! Personally I am glad you didn't! Love watching you!! Good Luck, hope life for you and yours is better now!!

Teresa, I'm a big fan of you and your girls and I understand your lives are not like the masses because of the media involvement. I have been very saddened by the behavior of Melissa, Joe, Caroline, and Kathy's family. I was appalled at what transpired on the May 20th episode and I will discontinue watching this show if you are no longer a part of it. I understand that Melissa is your sister-in-law, but it's very evident to me that she is manipulating others to turn them against you. She plays like she is a sweet innocent victim when all the while she is constantly talking about you behind your back and exagerating your interactions to your brother. I agree. She is jealous of you and would like to turn this into the Melissa and Joe show. If she succeeds, I guarantee you it will flop. I think she is the real media whore. God bless.

I do not understand why folks have an issue with your Joe. I get the biggest kick out him because he reminds me of my father and all my uncles growing up. In addition, he might be the one single person who does not and has not ever acted in front of the camera to please anybody. Ok so he said so and so looks like this..big deal..that's real talk people...we all do it...say what you want about him..you have to respect how he keeps it real...camera in his house or not. I think this is why people relate and enjoy you guys so much...we can relate to both of you and America loves a success story.. and you are a success story. I would like to see any of these women on this cast go through what you have with 4 babies..you kick a*s and take names..and they criticize Joe for telling you you don't need any of them.HELLO? what is he suppose to say...these people are "on one" and relentless with attacks...and I am sure Joe doesn't read the blogs even to see how obsessed they are...even talking trash about his daughters..YOU BETTER BELIEVE MY MAN BETTER DO THE SAME THING FOR ME...I wouldn't respect a man who did not 100 stick up for his wife and family...hands down no questions asked...and for all the haters out there...ya ever think maybe it hurts Joe to see Tre hurting and maybe he is both preparing and reassuring her for the inevitable fall out with all of the people hating on her?! He is trying to protect her in his way..and watch the show...for good reasons!!!! Love your Joey and keep up the good work Tre!

Teresa you have done nothing wrong, Melissa got on the show in order to bring family drama onto the show, she copies you in every way, she has turned your brother against you (smart viewers who know how to critically think and analyze can see this) the other cast members are ganging up you and that's ugly. As for Caroline, her daughter is a brat and she was throwing a fit in the kitchen, carolines kids say mean things about you, so Caroline needs to stop acting like mother of the year, without the manzos money her kids would be nowhere.

Teresa...I love you...period. Not saying you can do no wrong...but I always see your side of things. So you love your brother and have your own way of expressing it...so what. Why does everyone think it is their business to butt in? Jacqueline...take care of your own wayward daugher...Caroline...get a fan for your hot flashes, Lauren...eat a salad, Melissa...get vocal lessons. I mean really...just like Caroline is entitled to her own worthless opinion...you are entitled to think and act the way you want to toward your brother....I honestly think Joe and Melissa should have never been added to the cast! And your cousin, what's her face...should not have been added either. Bravo is capitalizing on family feuds and that's not entertainment it's sick!!! They should replace all of them with that crazy girl (Danielle) from season 1+ 2.

Teresa should have her own show! She is the only reason I watch this show anyway! Everybody is hating on her and then trying to come out smelling like roses. That so called brother of hers did trow her to the wolves, on national TV too, for his own gain! I am not a great fan of Teresa's husband Joe,however we have never seen him bashing anybody from his own family, perhaps Joey shold learn a lesson from him in family loyalty . His wife Melissa is very conniving, and quite daring with her shrewd comments towards Teresa( her beloved husband's only sister)yet sympathetic for the plight of Teresa's husband. Joey may need to pay closer attention to his wife's jabs at his sister.

Teresa fun watching you. Always something entertaining coming out of your mouth. Did you notice that Melissa lied about the text that Joe sent to you when she was in the kitchen? I noticed, guess she's not good at repeating the contents! Then Joe said he hadn't reached out while weight lifting. So sad that your "friends", always think the worst about you. Fake!!!

Gigi1959

Just a thought to all you haters..expalin this...

In the Gym scene Rich asked Joey how he felt after what he said to Teresa? and what will he do about it ?..Joey says he wanted to reach out to Teresa because he felt bad what he said. and that he would do it.... yet on the way to field day he shows a text and professes he did THAT DAY. the day of the incident , after she left .....can you say "LIAR"...

Just saying...

I do not feel that you nor Melissa are right or wrong. I think that you are family and that is what you should make important in your life. I think your husband has said a lot of mean things but I also feel that you are too scared of him to respond. I would never tell you how to raise your children because as a mother myself I would not take kindly to someone telling me, however I will say that I believe that your daughters are acting in the same fashion of the adults they have in their lives. Get away from Jaquiline and Caroline because they are septic to your well-being. Joe and Melissa are your family and that is the relationship on the show that you need to mend. You have all said hurtful things and by putting your business on the show opens you up to abuse from the public. Reach out to Kathy and Rosie, of everyone on the show they are the two that seem to truly love and care about you and your family.,.Also Teresa just saying you make your own money now and you are very capable of raising your girls on your own, don't stay with a man that hurts you so much, remember that emotional abuse is abuse just as physical abuse. Words can damage you sometimes more than punches.

LOVE you....Don't ever allow that precious, intelligent, sensitive girls to be around that viscious pack again. I don't have to write what they did, we saw it, no two ways around it unless you are spinning. It was ugly, disturbing and I can't help but be feeling Ashley aftre seeing that. Wow. Lauren is just about a "Caroline", and that's not a compliment. She's annoying as her mother, complain, gripe, judge. All because of unaccomplished goals ALL THE WAY AROUND .I think we may actually see her morph into her, hot flashes and all. You know, I can't help but thinking this all goes back to melissa because it does. Melissa came on this show to give it to you, well she has. This is all her web, this is exactly what happens when someone manipulates without mercy for their own desires. They don't care who they hurt and it trickles down everywhere. Poor Gia. I am a new huge GIA FAN!!!! She knows what's up- LOVE her...

All families have issues...that's life....about your friends trying to dicipline your kid...NO parent in the whole world likes that!!! you may tolerated from family and close friend but NEVER like it!... sounds bad but it's the truth.... in my personal opinion it was an example that kids don't understand adults jokes or issues, at the end Gia behavior was a result of a adult behavior, think twice before putting your kids in that situation, especialy pre-teens OMG they are so emotional. And people changes, these problems with your brother, even profesionals said that for every couple the first thing should be their parther (even before your kids), keep working hard, be in peace with yourself and everything else will get in place. I'm gemini too !! we are really explosive people !!!

You say you have different morals than Jackie does and that is why Ashley treats her the way she does...well, let me tell you something in case you have not noticed....your daughters are super spoiled and you are creating monsters!! Your morals are more shot than Jackies. YOu just refuse to take any suggestions from anyone, but the way you are rasing your girls is crazy..that Milanea is a piece of work..always gets her way. And Gia, I really feel sorry for. You are always so defensive when anyone says anything to you. You have to get real, girl!!! Your brother loves you, and you cant see past your nose!!!! YOu only see your husbands side of the pic, so why dont you understand that your brother loves his wife too??? YOur brother loves you and tries to help you but you seem to have this huge wall....break it down or you will be miserable all your life.

I think you and your sister-in-law are probably always going to get on each others nerves. Your brother is immature and both he and his wife love the spotlight at any cost to anyone. He says rude things to you and then apologizes or feels remorse for the cameras and the people he is trying to impress. I'm sorry to say, your husband is extremeley self-centered and gives you ultimatums which only makes things much worse. So, I can understand how alone and torn you feel. I don't think your husband is going to become any more enlightened about his actions and words causing so many problems for you. I don't know when you will admit that to yourself. You just need to keep a respectful distance from your brother and family, you don't have to socialize so much (of course, you were forced to for this show) and come together on holidays or occasions when you can all control yourself and appreciate the time you have together. Being in forced situations, like this show, has made things much worse. In spite of things that I do feel you also do wrong, I really do wish you the best, because at the heart of it all, you are a caring, hardworking person. Your husband is a horrible influence on you, but I know you have your daughters to think about. Keeping your distance will give you a measure of peace, rather than continual fighting and wasting your energy. Melissa knows how to create enough damage without seeming to get out of control and looking foolish. She is used to having all the attention in her family, babied by her sisters and she is only too happy to see you look foolish and lose your temper. Don't do it anymore.

This show is a guilty pleasure of mine..... I have to say that last nights episode was a bit disturbing. I did feel that Jackie and Caroline were out of line they should have gone and got you when Gia requested you. I don't agree that your child should be rude to adults, however I could see why she was. Nobody should get involed with other peoples children its up to the parents to teach their kids right from wrong. I was happy to see that you stand your ground and protect your children.... I think its time for a new set of friends. I wish you luck in all you do..........

I want to Thank all the Housewives of N.J. I basically watch your show so I can thank God even more for the solid and Loved family I have. All of you need attitude adjustments and Teresa and her husband need some real professional help. More listening and less talking will help both of you greatly. And your children (especially Gia) have no respect for adults which comes from (sorry to say) upbringing. Soooooo sad. The only Housewife I respect is Kathy. She seems to be the most together and tries to see good in all. "Bravo" to You Kathy.

All of You need to wake up and appreciate all that the Good Lord has given You. It can be taken from you in an instant ! !

Teresa, Teresa,Terese I think your a cool person but with some issues. I mean who doesn't have issues but it's how you handle them that makes the difference. Someone in the previous post said that they were disturbed by how Caroline and Jacqueline acted toward your daugther. Well frankly I was disturbed with how your daugther reacted to a simple family game. She showed that she is spoiled and learning that the world revolves around her, this is going to hurt her in the real world. When life becomes challenging for her she will fall apart and call mom....you can not fix everything. When she becomes a teenager I wish you luck. We can not be our kids friend or homegirl, you have to find a balance and show her how to use her emotions wisely. Pleeeease take a note out of "Carolines Book" on how to raise kids because she has done well, she reminds me what a mom is suppose to be. Caroline is real and keeps it "100". But first you need to deal with yourself, if you feel your perfect, then your kids are going to think the samething. And another thing regardless of how you feel about your brothers wife she is valid in her complaint about you. Let your brother live his life, is it really worth the arguement. When a man becomes a husband his wife is his first priority, hello!

Teresa, I have never wrote on one of these sites before but i have to say that i totally understand you and feel like you need the support. I would of been mad too if my bro left on christmas and it is not ok for Carolyn to be so judgemental towards your family. Especially when it comes to your daughters. She needs a lesson on compassion!! She puts her daughter down alot and doesn't even realize it. So just so you know Teresa there are alot of us out there that are on your side and are outraged on how you are being made out to look like the bad guy. We may not be voting on late night shows or blogging but we understand you. God Bless. :)

You go girl and be true to yourself.....that woman knows how to watch every word she says and is a calculating manipulator.....she knows exactly what to say to make herself look like and angel and you look crazy but at the end of the day its so obvious! Caroline might believe it but she's not really as smart as she tries to make people think so don't you worry!!! Work on a spin off so they can all sit back and watch the show go under if you leave and they will have plenty of time to watch you be a success!!! Don't let anyone talk to your kids like that..

Teresa, You were right on in defending Gia. Caroline and Jacqueline had no right in correcting her. After all, perhaps they should take care of their own issues before they put their two cents where it does not belong. I do believe Caroline was simply taking her resentment with you out on your child, and Jacqueline went along for the ride. With that said, teach your child to walk away from idiots. If that were my daughter I would have blown those two out of the water.

Dear Teresa, I am writing from the southern most tip of Alabama in a city named Mobile in hopes that some how you will get this message. I want you to know that I am encouraged by your patience with your family. You are such a loving woman. It is so upsetting to see your friends so quick to assume you are a liar without first speaking to you. I know the pain of being unfairly judged before even being heard. I just wanted to let you know that my family (my husband and 2 boys) are praying for you and your family. Everyone is not so easily mislead. We are forever for you. Keep on sharing, writing, encouraging, and loving. We Love you here in the South:) I know things will work out for you. I have faith.

Please know who u r and be confident, ur famil (daughters) r gorgeous, Gia is amazing and takes everything to heart-I would love to see u and ur family have ur own show!? Ask Bravo-more interesting than Bethany! Ur brother looks like he is stepping up as well-just tell him not to say poison in his system. (U Know)

Hi Teresa, I love your personality! Your temper reminds me of my own! I too have been known to punch someone's lights out. *giggle* However we are only on series 2, but I am cheating by having a sneak peek at the latest episodes, I am very impatient. I hope that the rotten Danielle is out of the picture. Not for nothing,but can't someone give her a pair of cement boots already. Yes, I am bad. Okay doll face, I'm gonna go make myself a cup of "cawfee" now.Much love & light from sunny South Africa.( I'm even starting to use the NJ lingo) xxx

TERESA I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOU. I love to read your blogs you are the only one mature enough not to be talking badly. These other housewives can learn alot from you, especially the two evil step-sisters Caroline "evil" Manzo and Jaquline "the Joke" and we can't forget the two trouble makers--- your brother and his stripper wife, at least thats the way she dresses- feel bad for you, especially with a sister-in-law like that. Teresa just continue to stay above the drama and you'll be fine. We love you and wish you well! TEAM TERESA!!!!!!

OMG, I've been watching back episodes on Amazon and mellisa is such a copier! You wore your hair in two ponies to go running...next thing we see Mellisa doing the same thing-so funny and kinda cute that she likes you like that. Maybe she looks at you as a role model or big-sis. But it's just crazy that she can't see she is doing it. I mean come on. But I was thinking maybe she gets her cues from her husband Joey. You rock !
