Teresa Giudice chats with Bravo’s Daily Dish about that explosive dinner on the Real Housewives of New Jersey and how she now feels about Jacqueline Laurita.
After Jacqueline brought up Strippergate with Melissa Gorga, she called Teresa a criminal. Emotions were high and Jac literally couldn’t sit still as she yelled at the two women. Teresa claims she was shocked.
“She’s just not the Jacqueline that I know. The Jacqueline I know didn’t act that way. I heard of her acting that way, I’ve never seen that side of her. And now I did and she looks like a stranger to me. It’s not somebody that I want to be around. I really don’t.”
As Teresa said previously, she’s cutting the cancer out of her life. So, does that include Jacqueline?
“I have a lot going on and I want to stay away from negative people that don’t want good for me. Why would I want to be around someone like that?”
During the last episode, Melissa felt that Jacqueline’s behavior boiled down to jealousy. Now that the sisters-in-law are getting along, Jacqueline feels left out. Teresa says it’s more than mere jealousy.
“Yeah, sort of, yes. I mean, I can get more into it, but yes [I agree]. Jacqueline wanted Melissa to take her side and when she didn’t, that’s when it all backfired. Like, before I came home.”
These two have made up before. Is that in the cards this time?
“I guess time will tell. Right now she’s not someone I want to be around. You don’t treat people that way you really don’t.”
Teresa brings up the fact that Jacqueline is a new grandmother. Might that mellow her a bit?
“I guess time will tell.”
But one thing is for certain, Jacqueline will have a lot to answer for.
“Hello? Did you watch tonight’s episode? The grandma! Watch the reunion and then you’ll see [what I have to say].”
Looks like Jacqueline’s going to be in the hot seat for a change.
