Teresa shares her thoughts on Joe's billboard and the sit-down with Jacqueline.

Thank you all so much for your support this week. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. xx
 
I loved seeing my girls get to play with their cousins this episode. I love them all so much! Can you imagine me and Joey and Rosie and Kathy running around like that when we were kids? We did! Cousins are your first friends, and I think it's important to get them together so they can grow up together.


 
I really am trying to let things roll off my back. I just want my family together and at peace, no matter what. Insult me, make fun of me, do what you will. I'll keep being a "good little girl." Milania just cracks me up. I never know what's going to come out of her mouth. She says the funniest things. You know how some kids act up in front of company, and some kids get shy? Milania is always just Milania. She makes me smile. Everyone has been asking me about her health since it was reported I took her to the hospital this week. I didn't, it was the doctor's office. She wasn't feeling well, and paparazzi were shooting us coming out of the building. Thankfully, they were very nice. The guy kept saying "I love you Teresa, my family love you." He apologized, and even asked me to take a picture with him. Then a picture of poor Milania and me shows up on TMZ with a nasty headline. Ah marone! Thankfully, Milania is all better now. Thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes.
 
I cannot believe on last night's episode they showed a clip of my old Sizzle Tans commercial! It was one of the first things I ever did when I was on Housewives. I totally regret it, it's so cheesy! I had an inexperienced PR person at the time, who convinced me it was a good idea. And Andy will never let me forget it! "I tan, I spray..." It seems like a million years ago. I'd just had Audriana four months before we shot this, and I was nervous. You can tell Joey wasn't nervous! I thought he looked great. I'm happy to pass the Sizzle Tans crown on to him. Enjoy!The sit-down with Jacqueline was intense. I was deeply hurt because we had been so close for so many years. I never expected her to turn on me like she did. I certainly never got any packet of information about Danielle's past, but if I did, I wouldn't have read it. I really don't care about people's pasts, and I don't have time to go digging. I'm raising 4 kids and working! I'm not the gravedigger in the bunch, believe me!
Yes, five years ago, I flipped one table -- the first and last I've ever flipped in anger. I'm a passionate person, but I have grown. I watched the scene on TV and I didn't like what I saw. I don't want my kids to see that, and I would never do that again. I've never physically attacked anyone, and you certainly haven't seen me do that this season! I've learned from my mistakes. And I have no issues with Danielle anymore. At the time, she was attacking my friends, and I was defending them. Then she said things about me, and it made me mad. But that was a long, long time ago, and I've moved on. I've apologized publicly, and I wish her all the best. And I wish all the best to her gorgeous girls. She must be doing something right to have such great kids. (Kids that aren't making fools of themselves on Twitter...)
 
You'll have to see how it all plays out with me and Jacqueline. It's far from over!

 
Thank you all again for your support and prayers.
 
Tanti Baci,
Teresa xx

Dina: "The Reunion was Very Hard to Watch"

Dina Manzo opens up about her comments regarding her family and why she kept quiet for Teresa Giudice.

This reunion was very hard to watch. What most of you don't know is I went in there with the intention of keeping silent on my family issues, as I have for the past four years. An incident happened at the reunion, and I won't even give that person the attention they crave, but it set me off to tell my truth. Well some of it at least. I felt I was very P.C. this whole time, but now I had enough. Some people will push you because they know deep down inside you won't push back, but being "zen" is all about setting boundaries, and learning that has been part of my spiritual path. 

I don't want to go into much other than saying my answer about Nic came out very cold because there was more to it. I wish it were that easy to get to know him, but unfortunately it's not because of my relationship with his mother, and I'm just being honest. He is not missing me nor does he know what is going on with this family because of NOTHING more than his age. Anyone who is trying to make people think otherwise, especially his mother, should be ashamed of themselves. The Mother Theresa comment was about people comparing how I raise money for children with cancer yet don't help him. I went on to say how blessed my brother is to live in a county in New Jersey that people actually move to for the autism programs offered. How I see joy in him because of the progress he is making. He is a happy, beautiful child that is on his way to recovery, and although I know it's a struggle for parents of children on the spectrum, there is NOTHING wrong with seeing joy in them instead of sorrow. I appreciate all the parents of children with autism for their emails, tweets, etc. understanding and APPRECIATING that I see Nic as a 4 year old beautiful boy and not labeling him as anything other than that.

Kathy and Melissa should not have challenged me about "family values" if they don't want to hear my side. I kept quiet for the most part for TERESA, not wanting to bring up old wounds when she was dealing with so much around her sentencing. It was a hard position for me to be in. 

I have no words for my sister on WWHL. She could have answered the no engagement question and left it at that. The lies that followed after were extremely hurtful and must have come from the sheer frustration of having to defend her position on the engagement party. All of you have seen I have ONLY ever said positive things about her no matter what I was feeling. 

Please take a moment to watch this video I made on my truth about it all. I will post all the details on my look next week, but you can get to everyone involved -- from hair to dress  -- on my Instagram post on Sunday. Speaking of Instagram, I invite you to join me on a post a day for the month of November to share what you are thankful for. Showing gratitude for what you have in life just allows the universe to send you more to be thankful for! Trust me, it works!

Sending lots of love, 

Dina xo
