The bad blood between Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita is so curdled that at this point, Tre is calling BS on her enemy’s on-camera show of empathy for the Giudice family in last week’s episode.
You’ll recall that, after Juicy Joe surrendered and began his 41-month sentence, Jacqueline told Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania that she “lost it” when she saw the photo of him hugging his wife goodbye, getting weepy all over again in the process. Well, Tre isn’t buying it.
“Well, I wrote it in my blog,” she told E! News. “Yes, I thought it was disingenuous, yes.”
She elaborated a little more in the blog post on BravoTV.com, writing, “She said on the show that she got teary-eyed when she saw pictures of me saying goodbye to Joe. At first I thought that was nice, but then I wondered if that was just her being fake. But in the end, who cares? She and I are done. I wish her and her family well. I just want her to leave me and my family alone.”
Of course, fat chance of that happening as long as the two remain on the show together. In fact, in a blog post of her own this week, Jacqueline made further accusations about Teresa and her family, this time claiming that sister-in-law and new BFF Melissa Gorga had been pretty loose-lipped about Teresa’s personal information over the years.
“I can say with all honesty that it was Melissa, as recently as while Teresa was in prison and for months after she got out, who fed me private information about Teresa and also how she felt about others, as well as how she felt about me,” she wrote. “Melissa kept me in the loop all of the time…. (just like she did with Danielle [Staub])…and I wasn’t the only person she was talking to.”
When we asked Teresa about this, she didn’t have much to say: “I don’t know about the allegations.”
One thing’s for sure: This reunion is going to be interesting.
