Teresa Makes Explosive Claim About Rachel's Husband: “I Will Take That Bitch Down”

"Don’t come for my husband,” Teresa Giudice warned Rachel Fuda. “Or I’ll come for your husband.”

By Joe Dziemianowicz

It’s not her party, but Teresa Giudice will throw mud if she wants to.

How to Watch

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

In the no-holds-barred Season 14 opener of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, a war of words raged when Teresa told Rachel Fuda that her husband, John, was “the biggest drug dealer in Bergen County.”  

The jaw-dropping allegation left Rachel seething — while Teresa doubled down, warning, “I will take that bitch down so quick.”

The noisy dust-up went down at a celebratory gathering for Jennifer Fessler, and the bad blood between the two women inevitably spread into the festivities.

What does Teresa say about John Fuda?

Fans of RHONJ, airing Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo know there’s previously been drama between Teresa’s husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, and John Fuda. It was evident around the end of Season 13.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 Might Be the Most Dramatic One Yet

John has alleged that Louie hired an investigator to “dig up dirt on his and his ex-wife." Louie has claimed otherwise.

But in the Season 14 opener, Teresa took it to another when she told Rachel that she has heard that John “was the biggest drug dealer in Bergen County.”

It’s an audacious allegation, even for Teresa, who came to the event wearing a floral frock and her hair in a long braid — and without Louie.

“He had a business meeting,” she told other party attendants.

Teresa soon had her own meeting with Rachel.

“I don’t want to talk now, but your husband went for my husband, trying to ruin his reputation,” Teresa said.

Rachel sought to avoid a scene, saying, “I think our husbands need to have a separate conversation.”

Teresa then informed Rachel that Louie had tried to meet with John in advance of the gathering.

“Louie was a gentleman. He reached out to him to clear the air before coming here,” she said.

Rachel’s retort: “What do you know about gentlemen?”

She added that John and Louie “are never going to be friends.”

Teresa loudly asserted “You don’t know my husband,” to which Rachel said, “I don’t want to know your husband.”

The encounter escalated, and Teresa made her bold claim.

"I don’t want to know your husband either. You know what your husband said to my husband. 'I have tremendous respect for your wife because we both were in jail.' I heard he was the biggest drug dealer in Bergen County. So don’t come for my husband,” she warned, “or I’ll come for your husband.”

“She better not come for me,” Teresa declared. “I will take that bitch down. I will take that bitch down so quick it’s not even funny.”

Suffice it to say Season 14 gets off with a bang. Follow everything that unfolds on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, airing Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
