Real Housewives of New Jersey’s convicted felon, Teresa Giudice, is ready to give us her side of the fight with Jacqueline Laurita, and as usual, Teresa is the wounded party in this scenario. So, get your tissues ready. It’s time for a sob story.
“Well…so much for “rebuilding” a friendship… When Jacqueline and Chris invited me and Joe to their house for dinner, I went because I truly believed Jacqueline wanted to work on healing our relationship, like I did.”
Call me a nut, but I don’t think the best way to repair a friendship is to bring up the past with constant passive-aggressive digs at your hostess. But what do I know?
“Maybe I’m naïve, but I was really looking forward to a nice night with her and Chris, with us talking and sharing a few laughs, trying to take steps to rebuild what we had lost. That obviously did not happen. I got invited to her house and got attacked – again.”
So…let me get this straight. Anyone who counters Teresa’s skewed version of events is “attacking” her? Got it.
“…when Jacqueline and I were alone and I began to tell her how I felt about the way she had treated me in the past, because I wanted to be honest with her, I felt like she started attacking me rather than really listening to what I was saying to her.”
Again, not attacking. That’s called a conversation, Teresa. Look into it.
“Then she called my brother. To me, that was crossing a line. Who does that? Then, as you saw, she hit me below the belt with her nasty words. She was mean.”
It probably wasn’t the most tactful thing to say, but I can see where Jac’s patience snapped like a thin rubber band. She’d had enough of Teresa’s constant deflecting. I have, too, by the way.
“Truth be told, I felt the same way at her house that night that I did on her deck all those years ago when she just kept going with the questions about my legal issues, digging and digging. I thought it was weird that she asked so many really personal questions that none of my other close friends had ever asked me – intrusive questions I would never ask them.”
Of course she would never ask Jacqueline any questions about her personal life. Narcissists aren’t that invested in other people.
“I really hope that one day Jacqueline and I can rebuild our friendship, but right now, I’m not so sure. I’m disappointed in the way she acted toward me that night. I had the best of intentions going there. But she showed me that she hasn’t changed at all.”
Funny how Teresa thinks Jac is the one who should change. #felon #fraud
“She was so vicious. It was sad to see her like that, to be honest. Hopefully she will find a way to stop being so negative and to learn to listen better and not make assumptions about things before lashing out. I hope she learns to be more positive.”
Namaste, Teresa. I’m not buying this new persona at all. It’s the same old song and dance, always playing the victim. Different day, same Tre.
So, do you think Teresa has changed her leopard print for a new attitude? Did Jac do the right thing, countering Teresa or should she have sucked it up for the sake of reuniting?
