Teresa Giudice

Teresa shares her thoughts on the confrontation with Penny.

on Sep 23, 20130

How would Penny know about the controversy of when Melissa did or didn't go visit my dad in the hospital? We had filmed about it in public, me asking Melissa. There were lots of people there that could have told her.
 
Right then, when Penny brought up my dad in the hospital, I knew what was going on. I knew that she and Melissa were playing some kind of game, and I wasn't going to play along.
 
I can't figure out Penny and why she says what she says except that she wanted to be a Housewife. Her stories don't make sense, she does talk out of both sides of her mouth. She says she didn't do anything, then she says someone else made her do it. My favorite line of the night was from Jacqueline: "What are you 5? You make your own decisions. It doesn't matter what someone else told you to do, you chose to do it. So I blame you."

Teresa is so ridiculously stupid that it's actually painful watching her, the show would be so peaceful without her and her squeeky voice

Teresa is guilty.  All one has to do is "google" the definition of Pathological Liar and you will find Teresa.  It describes her to a Tee. She lies so much and so often that she believes it!!  You can apply that to her life and all of her issues..No,  she doesn't think she's done anything wrong!!! She believes in all of her lies..Simple as that.  I don't need anyone like her in my viewing time.  I've got better things to do...

Teresa looked so quilty when Jenny confronted her, i think she is so dumb? she blames everyone except herself, first it was Jackie who is trying to break up her family, she then looked like a deer in front of head lites when confronted with the Poche insident?  so quilty? so quilty??then its she does nothing, then she has a hairline from hell, then she critizizes everyone, when they asked her about her KANOLIES, she said did i roll my eyes enough!! and she always has someone to make fun or blame!!! she never does anything wrong!! whats funny she believes her own lies....i could go on and on!! then Andy asked about the case, and then her ignorant self says she does not no why it would happen to them they are good people!!! REALLY ?? are you serious.....

the guilt on your face gives it all away!  There is this thing about you that is ego ego ego.  You seem to want the world to think you're perfect and no one is...this season we did get to witness you show some realness, but you still have a ways to go...why would you think your husband would NEVER cheat?..All because its YOU?..In reality anyone can cheat...THINGS DO HAPPEN...you cannot count anyone immune or because they have the hottest wife in new jersey that they'd never cheat...when its very possible they have cheated every year of the marriage..begin to tell the truth, Teresa, be real and honest, no one is perfect.

It's obvious to see that Teresa is doing everything she can to mend family and friend relationships...If people can't see that, something is wrong with them. I think Teresa needs to break the ties with Kim D and those friends that use to bash Melissa at the time when she hated/disliked Melissa at the time. I believed that old stuff was just coming back to bite Teresa in the butt, and her friends just added fuel to the fire! Melissa also needs to stop caring about people calling her names and all this. Everyone on the show is in the media, people are going to hate you or love ya, who cares, that's the life of as a celebrity. (You don't see Kim Kardashian whining about people calling her a hoe...b/c she doesn't care, she's in the media.) Teresa has done all that she can: therapy, family dinners, apologizing, taking responsibility for other peoples actions, the works! She really loves her family and friends and I see it. No one is perfect, but I definitely have seen Teresa's efforts. Give her a break! (Half of the people that hate on Teresa wouldn't have went through half the ropes to mend their family.)

Teresa.....you still do not get it......i have  watched every episode of NJ housewives, from the beginning   i watched you and only you start a fight w/ danielle and then u would blame everyone else......you are still delusional......you atarted the rumor about Melissa not visiting your dad and then you get mad that she defends herself......i know it happened a while back but Melissa defending herself from lies and accusations is her right........you came soooooooooooo close last night to being a real sis in law and sister but alas, you fell short......all that you admitted to was listening to rumors....but you should have admitted to     A..starting the rumor   and   B.  having others spread the rumor....and then after what Joe said about who would look after ur kids......yeah we all know it wasn't what Melissa said about you it was what Joe G said about Melissa......tsk tsk tsk

I was told by an attorney that the feds throw the book at you with as many charges as they can think up, hoping maybe 2 out of the 39 will stick! That's how they plea bargain. They let the little ones drop in hopes they will plea to the bigger ones!

Teresa you strength and willingness to forgive you brother and sil amazes me.. You are one tenacious woman!! Stay strong, positive and raise those beautiful girls..... I think by now the world can see Melissa and your bro are not innocent by far! Anyone willing to come on national television, drag their husband's family through the mud all in the name of fame, has some serious narcissistic  issues!!

Tre, New Jersey Housewives would not be a show with out you. You sister in law and brother did exactly what they said they would do if they got on the show and that is tear you down.

Melissa has been campaigning against long before she got on the show. I almost hope you dont come back next season so the show will fail.

But in any case I wish the best for your family!

I have watched this show from the start. I think the most important thing is you have to have enough faith not only in your marriage but your family and friends in order to maintain peace and balance. The truth is it does not define you by what actions you make but how you take responsibility of them.  It was nice to see you say" I regret things I have done in the past" that shows who you are. We do not get to choose family but we get to make choices how we live with them and I hope you remember that moving forward. I have a sister in law and I get jealous resentful and thank god she loves my brother unconditionally. It is life.I do think you are a good person but sometimes I think you have a flare for the dramatics but it is who you are and again real friendship and love is unconditional. I hope with all my heart things work out for you and all of your family. Yesterday is gone tomorrow is a day away so just live life for here and now.

Teresa I was reading in the tabloids that you turned down for the 4th time....you own spin off...wise decision...but please stay away from your jealous sister in law....she hates you and is very jealous of you....I have met you in person and your are a charming and classy woman...gorgeous and a very trusting woman...but never let your guard down with Melissa...she burns her bridges and these people come after her for blood and somehow she thinks you are in the middle of it.....just love that crazy psycho from a distance

There is no such thing as a secret when a camera crew follows you around and films your every move. Of course other people knew and it is no secret that members of the production crew have cast members that they like or do not like. Assuming that Penny could have only heard things about anyone on the show from Teresa is not only stupid, but also very convenient for Melissa and Joe who are determined to blame Teresa for something. They have been after her from the second they came on the show for one made up reason after another, including a whole season where they were mad at her for tabloid stories written ABOUT HER! They look like the fools that they are now so they have actually sunk so low as to give attention to someone who clearly wants to be on tv as bad as they do. The whole thing is ridiculous. They wanted to be on tv so bad that they trashed Teresa to do it. When you are on TV people trash you in the tabloids and on social media, just deal with it, some people have real problems.

I loved seeing Teresa and Joey just really break down the wall of anger and mistrust and lies and just look at each other as two adults who used to be super close, who still love each other but are not really going to be the same again. It was bittersweet, but I think necessary for them to really see that Teresa never wanted to hurt her brother, ever. She is so strong, to be going through so much with legal issues, and the stress of her brother and also running her businesses and taking care of her kids, while also worrying about her Dad.  Hang in there Teresa, it will all be behind you soon.

And I forgot to mention - Teresa stating that she realized that Joey's family comes before her now was a real turning point for her!!! I KNOW this has been hard for Teresa to handle - but the reality is that when siblings grow up and get married, their spouse becomes #1.

I am now a fan of Teresa - I think in her own way, she FINALLY realized that she may have put the bugs in those women's ears (Penny, Kim D.) that started some bigger problems and apologized - she is not the most articulate person (i.e. "textses" and "I shouldn't have listened") but I could see what she meant. I am also now a fan of Melissa - as despicable and gross as Penny and her husband are, they were pretty clearly surprised that Tre was denying she had ever said anything to them. Melissa and Joey could have really gone off the deep end again on Tre, but didn't - they (sort of) still gave her the benefit of the doubt - which was good because Tre's apology was coming. Penny and Kim D. are just....blech....... I don't have a problem with either of the Joe's b/c they both clearly love their wives (I wasn't sure about Joe Guidice for a while, but I now think he's loyal). Joe Guidice cracks me up with his "whatever"'s .Good luck to the Guidices and Gorgas and many years of happiness and health!!

So that's Teresa's big indiscretion?  She listened to gossip about Melissa when they were on the outs?  That's what this whole season was about? What a crock!  Like none of us listen to gossip about people who say awful things to us.  Every time I see Joe Gorga's pompous self-righteous talking head spots, I just want to have a James Cagney moment and smash  a grapefruit in his face!

 @italianmama Teresa has changed a great deal since season 1, and I have definitely seen her growth! Melissa and Teresa have said negative things about each other, but Teresa is the only one getting beat up for it, that's crazy! Teresa has worked 10 times harder than Melissa to mend her family and friend relationships and I commend her for that! The whole point of this last season was to mend and move forward and here you are rehashing past events. I think everyone on the show can admit to bashing Teresa, yet Teresa is the only one that needs to say sorry?! Not fair! Teresa's fam needs to move forward and continue to be happy with each other...they're a beautiful family and they need to keep moving forward ( not looking in the past).

 @italianmama It wasn't a rumor that Melissa didn't visit her dad. Melissa lied about visiting him when she didn't and Teresa called her out on it.

 That's a very open ended statement.  I will take it to mean that you are hoping for all good things to come to Teresa  and her family.  Best wishes!

 @LillyK She may not have wanted to hurt her brother but by going after his wife in the vindictive way that she did ultimately hurt her brother!  She wanted to break them up so much that she did not even think how much she would hurt her brother and once she realized it, it was too late.  (Hence the apology).

 I think you misunderstood what she meant by that...she has been accused of not wanting him to put his family first and she was clearing that up that she did....and that she understood that because she puts her family first

@mountainclimber That is hilarious! I feel the same way. He has become the most unappealling of all the cast members for me. He is Mellissa with a shaved head.

 @mountainclimber I think in her own inarticulate Teresa way, she was understanding that she may have planted the seeds that lead to the Kim D., Penny/John gossip.

 Melissa DID visit her father-in-law.  Even Teresa admits to that.  She just didn't go soon enough to suit Teresa's wishes.  Guess that rumor isn't true. Shocking how that happens...

 @irishhousewife  @italianmama Teresa had every right to call Melissa out on that, but not Kim D. The problem is not necessarily Melissa or Teresa. The problem is all these miserable people constantly involving themselves in their lives. I would have told Kim D it's none of your business, and go find some your own.

I agree, Viewerinvirginia.

 but everyone is forgetting that Melissa Gorga has burned many bridges with Kim D and Penny and Jan....that is why these women were out for blood....Teresa just happened to be at the wrong place at the right time...

 No,I didn't say that her fans were to blame for her family problems,I said the HEALING may have come sooner if her fans didn't "fan the flames".I believe Teresa reads her fans comments on the blogs and on Twitter and her fans do like to keep the drama going.According to her most recent blog her apology was all BS,as usual.Teresa will never OWN anything she's ever done.Sad.
