Last night, Bethenny Frankel appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” and for a change of pace, Bethenny grilled host Andy Cohen.

Bethenny asked Andy many unique questions and one of the most comical questions centered around, Teresa Giudice rabid fans, known as “tre (pronounced tree) huggers.”

Teresa Giudice, former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star with the real tiny forehead, refers to her fans as TreHuggers. Andy Cohen educates us about “TreHuggers” and from his description, the group sounds like a cult like following.


Never mind the fact that Teresa Giudice is a convicted felon currently serving a 15-month prison sentence for fraud, her die-hard “TreHugger” fans love love love her and will cut a b*tch over their idol Teresa!

I’m always fascinated by the crazy obsession Teresa Giudice fans share. The reality star is in prison and has a cult following…why not? Even Charles Manson has fans. I guess it’s an attraction to tiny foreheads some will never understand.

    Wow, from that clip here Bethenny sure finds herself amusing!!!

    Me? Not so much….

    • Hahahahaha! You have the funniest comments.

      Morning Live! 🙂

      • Livie1

        Morning Seuss! You too! Enjoy your snark 🙂

  • Livie1

    It’s a shame the TreHuggers didn’t find Andy 😉

  • Trehuggers (Not all) have a few screws loose. Their obsession with the tiny forehead and criminal is not healthy. I never really found Teresa funny or likable. I hated her entitled attitude and the way she treated Melissa and Kathy. Especially Kathy. She’s so mean to kind Kathy for no good reason. After the indictments went down what was there left to like about Teresa? I wish some Trehuggers can join this discussion to enlighten me.

  • Dave

    Nicely done Tea. Thanks for the laughs on my coffee break.

  • CNN

    Who cares about Teresa. When she gets out she’ll have no show and no more endorsements. She’s finished. Say good-bye to fame Teresa.

    • Livie1

      I hope you’re right CNN. I hate to think there would even be a slim chance she’d be rewarded in the end by Bravo after all the pain and suffering she and Joe caused others with their financial scams.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Hard core = simple minded.

  • Chloe

    Trehuggers are insane. One of the least intelligent, the most aggressive and rude fans of the franchise. They never make sense and have no sensible reason for their blind admiration of Teresa.

    • Cindy

      What would you expect Melania is having trouble managing her multiple Twitter Accounts lol lol 😉

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    They are all mental, no doubt. I also think she just has like 2 fans, that leopard guy and the super Tre Hugger, and they have multiple twitter and Facebook profiles to support their felon.

    I have always hated Tre, before all her thievery was discovered. She is uneducated, classless, mean and crazy. She is a complete disgrace to women and NJ.

    • WaWaWaWHAT!

      Excellent comment, and you are correct. Tre Huggers have multiple accounts it’s SO easy to tell at times…

    • Yolie

      Leopard guy’s Twitter is like a Giudice shrine. Hysterical to read. He can’t be real.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Hysterical write up….so true

    IMHO, Tre Huggers are nitwits, and more than likely are frauds as well…like their hero Tre

    • Yolie

      You’re right, they must be frauds if they condone Teresa’s criminal ways.

  • Yolie

    This is accurate and very funny. I don’t get the attraction to the tiny forehead either.

  • honeybunny

    I like that you referred to her as FORMER real housewives of new jersey star

  • colleen

    Tre Huggers quick to bash Andy
    for defamation, when in fact he said he doesn’t dislike St. tre

    • Just a jersey girl

      Andy started going easy on her the last few years, but for a time he was hard on her, but that was because of Joe’s homophobic comments.

      • Livie1

        And didn’t Tre also shove Andy during one of the reunion shows? She sure knows how to win friends and influence people!

        • Just a jersey girl

          Yes she did.

  • Let me just say this: I’m a TreHugger to a certain extent. When it comes to anything Melissa, 99% of the time, I’m on Tre’s side, because her situation resonates with me. However, I’m a grown woman at the end of the day. You do wrong, wrong comes right back to you. You commit the crime, you do the time, and there’s nothing else to be said about that. Also, I will never attack anyone for their opinion. We can disagree with each other until we’re blue in the face, but it’s all about being respectful at the end of the day.

    • Hey Bre! I wish all TreHuggers were like you….rational and intelligent.

    • pixntrix

      Breanna you are the only TreHugger that I have ever heard say that…I agree with Seuss rational and intelligent. It’s kind of how I feel about Brandi. I loved the show when Brandi and Lisa were friends but not so much how it is now. Brandi has always had a mouth and is the same now as she was then, but the duo made me laugh. Mind you I’m not a Brandi hugger before im stoned to death, ok now I’m going hide from the Brandi haters…lol

      • Brandi has her faults, many I might add, but I agree, her and Lisa were funny when they were friends. Brandi’s sharp tongue used to be funny, but she doesn’t know how to control it. She still has some good zingers though.

  • Fritz the. At

    I don’t think she has as many fans as she used to have. Reading blog comments show that. But today we see Josh Duggar apologists so there are morally adrift people everywhere. Celebrity Fu**ers are everywhere. The sad part is if they have kids. Moral compass way off.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Those Tre-Huggers are cray cray !!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Reading the bloggers that are shrines to Teresa, posters there cling to delusion that all negative news about her comes from either Jac or Kathy.

    • Just a jersey girl

      That is ridiculous the proof is in the picture taken at Danbury

    • What difference does it make the news comes from them…..doesn’t Teresa feeds her favorite bloggers bad info about Jac and Kathy.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I wonder why they are not placing equal amount of blame on Melissa. I think they’ve been alerted that Melissa in now going to be “family” and no longer “enemy.”

        • Hmmmm….you’re right, I never see the idiots blaming Melissa just Kathy and Jac….for everything. It’s sick.

    • Shy-ra

      I’ve noticed that as well – don’t know why, but it makes my blood boil that the huggers are that delusional, and will go to any length to “prove” Tre is a saint. Morons don’t know how to separate a TV fantasy world from reality. They take the “reality” in reality TV too literally. The stupidity is deeply concerning

  • cait

    When I was pregnant with Anthony, I had to spend 7 days in hospital, leaving Michael, my 3 yr old. I cried, missing him, every day, in hosp, but the tough time came when I got home ! For 3/4 days my baby didn’t want to know me !
    I have to have some pity for Teresa and her Dotters, as they will feel the loss of their mother and prob make her pay, emotionally, when she comes home. Then they’re gonna lose hubby and daddy, and the whole damn cycle starts again ! LOSE-LOSE !

    • Cindy

      Hmmmm Maybe they should have thought of the consequences BEFORE they were enjoying the Lifestyle of the Rich!!!! SMH They deserve whatever they get dealt BUT they Do NOT deserve to be rewarded with a Big Money Contract from Bravo or Any other Station for that matter!! JMHO

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        ^ BOOM!

  • italiano bambino

    Those fans are so serious shit. Don’t mess with the monkey

  • Sophia Z.

    Fan of Teresa? Never met one.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Mho? Tre definitely does have a few die hards, but most have gone away. (Once Tre went away.) Will she have an audience when she gets outs out? Yeah, I think so, for a little while, but I think it will be very short lived. Imho her so called “star” has come & gone. The only thing she will firstly & ultimately be remembered for in the annals of “Reality TV history” is she is now & forever a convicted felon.

  • September24

    The sad thing is Tre is the most interesting of all the cast. Bravo isn’t filming without her because no-one else can carry the show.

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    Who doesn’t like to watch a lunatic? She and her crowd are ridiculous since season one.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    Thankfully I have never run across one on Twitter. But my motto is Block and move on. I wouldn’t have even tried to talk to one. LOL

  • Goo Goo G’Joob

    I’ve never had any run-in’s with a TreHugger, yet I’ve been accused of being one. I watch NJ but to be honest, I don’t like any of the women on there. This last season, I really hated the twins because they were pushing me to almost feel sorry for Teresa which probably would have killed me. Yet, even though I don’t fawn over any of them like I do Lisa V or Eileen, I do pay attention to what’s going on. Once, when Andy was interviewing Teresa & Joe at a reunion and brought up the gay topic, he twisted what they said and made it sound very hateful when that was not their intentions. He fed Rosie a few lines and suddenly she was up, yelling and bellowing like a bull after a cow in heat, about their “hate speech”. Another site (not here) blogged about this and when I commented that in all fairness what Teresa had said at the reunion had been said numerous times on shows such as Modern Family and in movies such as I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and Andy & Rosie had both twisted it out of context. I thought I was going to be burned at the stake. I wasn’t speaking up to defend Teresa and Joe so much as I was speaking up to further show what a dyed in the wool jackhole Andy is. It didn’t matter because my time hanging out on that site was done…they loved Brandi, they loved Kyle and I couldn’t stand either but they despised Teresa and mistook me for being her #1 fan…so I checked out and got back to civilization. Usually I never open my yap when the subject is Teresa, but today I got wordy. ;o)
