Andy Cohen didn’t dare get out of line with Juicy Joe Giudice sitting there looking like he was ready to pounce! Yes, Andy we know Teresa and Joe can’t read, neither can Joe Gorga, for that matter. He didn’t have to prove it with his “Teresasaurous” on the After Show.
On the After Show, Andy also addressed those of us who aren’t on board with the edit Teresa is receiving this season, by saying he “encouraged Teresa to go on Celebrity Apprentice.” Weak and lame, Andy.
Teresa, who has shown remarkable restraint given all the attacks, took off the gloves on her Bravo blog. She’s had enough
On Joe Gorga’s lie about their parents:
I have to address what my brother said about my parents: it’s not true. I knew Joey could be petty, like his comment about our carport (which he knew we were always going to do), but I didn’t know he could be so disrespectful or hurtful to our parents. My parents are very private people, and I’m not going to compromise their privacy by saying anything else, but shame on him!
The truth is Teresa’s parents have been living with Joe and Teresa for years. The documented proof is in the original bankruptcy documents, where it is stated that Joe and Teresa receive $10,000 a month from them.
From Teresa’s blog:
Before I get into the actual “discussion,” I have to address a few things of the things they were saying behind my back before I got there. My mother taught me to never point out, question, or judge people for what they eat or how they spend their money. Until you walk in their shoes, you don’t know, and it’s not your place to know. Apparently the Manzo and Laurita family didn’t get that same lesson. I’m only glad I don’t have an eating problem too…
On Jacqueline’s ex-husband:
I do believe that Jacqueline was upset and slowly breaking down, but it was not because of an obviously fake story that obviously didn’t bother me. So what was it? Maybe it was upsetting her that at the exact same time her ex-husband, John Madison “Matt” Holmes, Ashley’s father, who we saw on this episode, was arrested with his wife for a long list of things. Funny that Jacqueline — great friend who tells her friends everything — never said a word about it. She tweeted about Matt being investigated by the FBI, but didn’t say one word to her friends. What? Matt was actually arrested and that doesn’t need a conversation, but me not telling her about one of the million fake stories about me in a tabloid, that’s a huge breach of our friendship?
On the tabloid stories:
This whole thing is insane, because Jacqueline knows exactly which stories about me are true and which aren’t. In the same way, I know which stories about Jacqueline are true. For her to be pretending confusion and calling me out when she has her own tabloid mess… But that’s on her… and Caroline and Melissa and Kathy and Joey (and apparently even Melissa’s sisters! Wow, love getting critiqued by Heckle and Jeckle!). They all know how interviews work because they’ve either been involved with it for the past 3 years like me, or watched their family member (me) go through it. To suddenly try and twist those tabloid rumors around to something I do on purpose to make money is not only sick, but a sick lie.
For more on Heckle and Jeckle, otherwise known as Melissa Gorga’s toxic sisters Kim Pirella and Lysa Simpson:
BTW, Lysa Simpson is in foreclosure.
More on the tabloids, including Lauren Manzo’s lapand surgery:
Caroline and Jacqueline know full well that when magazines are publishing tons of stories about me and my marriage, eventually you’re going to want to put out your own actual interview where you clear things up for your fans. Like Lauren Manzo talked to US Weekly about her lap band surgery this week. That is not “putting out stories.” I explained that all in last week’s blog. And they know it. But to call doing an interview or photo shoot every so often the same as “putting out stories to the tabloids” about myself is twisted and untrue. I have never, Heaven as my witness, put out a single rumor story to any tabloid or blog about myself or anyone else. I know for a fact they can’t say the same thing… Some of them have Radar Online on speed dial!
Tom Murro of Celebrity Magnet works for the Manzo/Laurita clan. He sold the story about Dina and Teresa to Radar:
But the lunacy! Here’s a great example: last week when Jacqueline was all shocked about my vow renewal story, and then wrote that I stole it from her to “outshine her.” Um, what? Jacqueline wasn’t asked to renew her vows for a magazine: she was going to renew them on her own, because she and Chris never had a real wedding (no comment as to why). She even went wedding dress shopping – you see her trying on veils in the opening credits! And I totally supported her doing it – I thought it would be so cute! Then she backed out and changed her mind. I was actually disappointed, because I thought it was a really exciting thing for her to do, that her kids would love being in the wedding, she didn’t have any wedding photos with a wedding dress on!
Please, Teresa, tell us why Jacqueline and Chris didn’t have a real wedding! Is the word “stripper” involved?
On tweeting with Danielle Staub:
- “@bravoandy @bravotv is this true? Maybe I should show everyone what
@melissagorga wrote my fb inbox about Teresa?”
- “Wow careful now bc ive got emails from her own sisterinlaw w so
much Teresa dirt.”
- “@melissagorga Melissa Did you ever tell Teresa you were contacting
- “@melissagorga did you tell tre you wanted to come on w me last
season To get back at her”
- “@melissagorga and everytime you & Tre’s brother begged me to come
on w me – I said no!”
On Jacqueline’s instability:
As far as Jacqueline goes, she is a really hard person to be good friends with because she is so unstable and moody. But I never thought her moods would turn crazy against me. She was screaming at me to “move on” and forgive Melissa for something evil that Melissa did two years ago, but guess what? I just found out about it a week earlier! Give me some time to process it! And I had already decided to and did publicly defend Melissa. How is it holding an old grudge when you just found out?
