Teresa Giudice on Strippergate: 'Big F------ Deal'

The NJ 'Wife says she had no involvement and that it's not worth the fuss.

By Mike Hess

Teresa Giudice wants you to know a few things: 1. She had nothing to do with the "Strippergate" moment from this week's shocking Real Housewives of New Jersey episode, and 2. It's really not that big of a deal anyways.

In her blog this week, Teresa at length tackles all of the accusations that she had a hand in allegedly setting up her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga for the awkward ambush you saw on Sunday. "I think you can see I was sincerely uncomfortable at this strange guy trying to talk to me about Melissa's past," Teresa writes, saying that Angelo "really did think I knew about her past -- which I didn't, I still don't, and I, like the rest of America, don't care! ... The whole situation just felt weird, so I took myself out of it. I can't keep track of all the people Melissa has pissed off in our town, but I am not going to be a part of it."

T also questions why the others involved would think she took part in setting up Melissa. "First of all, I don't play like that. For better or worse, what you see with me is what you get. I don't scheme and plot and try and twist people's minds and opinions about things. I don't bash people on Twitter, have my sisters and mothers and daughters pick fights with people on social media, I'm just not about that. You know who does that sort of thing. They always have and they always will ... Second, I have nothing to gain from exposing Melissa. She is my parent's only daughter-in-law, she goes by our family name "Gorga." Why would I want anything bad out there about a Gorga?"

Having dealt with the whole blow-up, Teresa says she's "so over all of this backwards, made-up drama" and that in the longrun, she doesn't think there's a fire burning beneath all of the smoke.

"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 ... 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."
