Teresa Giudice Says Jacqueline Laurita Is the "Problem Child" of RHONJ

The #RHONJ mom isn't holding back when it comes to her castmates.

Who Am I Blaming It On?

After a season full of ups and downs that included a "Lucy and Ethel" reunion and Teresa Giudice storming out of Jacqueline Laurita's house (before dinner was even served, mind you), these old friends seem to be back on track this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But with what looks like an explosive vacay in Vermont to come in Sunday night's all-new episode, will this Garden State goodwill last? 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Well, Teresa said Jacqueline "right now is the problem child" during a recent interview with Extra, which isn't a great sign. That aforementioned confrontation at Jacqueline's home has a lot to do with that for Teresa. "She was kind of nasty when I went to her house, and here she wants to rekindle a friendship with me, and then when you invite someone to your house, you don't start with them and say nasty things and hit below-the-belt, and she did," Teresa explained. "So we're trying it again. Stay tuned." 

But it sounds like their friendship may take a turn for the worse during the upcoming Vermont trip. "Things are said, things are revealed," she said. "It's crazy."


Luckily, the good vibes that we've seen between Teresa, her brother Joe Gorga, and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga have continued. "Everything's really good. My parents are happy," she gushed. "It's the way it always should've been, but the fame and money thing got involved." 

However, that's more than we can say for the seasons-long tension between Teresa, Kathy Wakile, and Rosie Pierri, which has continued this season of RHONJ. Though it seemed like the trio resolved their drama once and for all in last Sunday night's episode, Teresa said she still doesn't think her cousins' intentions in meeting with her were genuine. "They really don't want a relationship with me," she said. "They just want to be on TV, and I'm just over it." 

The fate of Teresa's relationship with her cousins will continue to be a hot topic during Sunday night's new episode of RHONJ, and it's even going to involve Jacqueline and Melissa, too. Catch a sneak peek of the conflict below, but be forewarned: It might leave you feeling very, very confused.
