TERESA GIUDICE: Tree’s BravoTV Blog… Would Have Told Kathy Wakile “Don’t Do Housewives”… Tree “Ambushed”…

July 3, 2012  5:20 pm


I loved watching my girls work with their daddy on our new garage/shed building.

 Tree and Juicy’s new garage… where’s the second floor???

I’m proud that they’re hard workers. We all are.

Loved seeing them stucco.

 Milania walks off the job… “This stucco work is for losers… I’m gonna find where they hid the fireworks…”

I was also so happy Rosie came over to talk to me. It’s very sweet she’s upset about tabloid stories about her sister, but believe me, she was preaching to the choir! Yeah, I know! Ugly tabloid stories are one of the many reasons I never wanted to see my family go through this. If Kathy ever told me she was even considering joining the show, I would have told her this is one of the really bad downsides: every skeleton, every person you ever had an argument with, everything the tabloids can twist, they will. It’s not fun.

I actually think Kathy’s gotten off pretty easy, and I’m thankful for that. I don’t really remember seeing any negative Kathy stories except why would she come on RHONJ and bash her own cousin, and I think she probably expected those.

I thought it was interesting that Rosie  said she didn’t want the tabloid stories to “start a family war.” It’s been almost two full seasons now, and I’ve never said or written anything hurtful about Kathy or her family on the show (or in the press!).

Again, the big thing Kathy and Rosie are upset about? I was asked in a magazine interview if anyone harassed me about my spending since I’d filed bankruptcy, and I said the only person I can think of is my cousin, who teases me about shopping. I was talking about Richie, they put a picture of Kathy, but I’m sorry, I’m not seeing the huge insult here.

Yes, when he’s not calling me a bitch or “joking” about burning me on the stake, Richie does tease me about shopping. I didn’t say anything else, but you can see for yourself how they all are in my business making up stories about us building a garage, freaking out about what purse I’m carrying…

Unfortunately for me, St. Kathy herself isn’t so nice or restrained. Here’s what you have heard from Kathy’s own lips about me: “I guess intelligence is a different language for Teresa.” “It’s not my job to raise her.” And from her blogs: “Teresa, a bit of advice — it’s usually not a good idea to bring up your spending or someone’s alleged perception of it in the same conversation that you talk about your bankruptcy issues. Just sayin’.” And “When Teresa could not think of an intelligent response, what does she do? Hmm, she then decides to attack me for leaving the christening. Does anyone else see a pattern here? Why is it that whenever Teresa is confronted, she flips the table? Come on, you’ve all been watching.” Along with writing I’m “petty,” “pathetic,” and “mean spirited.”

And yet I’ve never had a “war” with her. I invite her to lunch and say I want to move forward, even though those insults are airing on TV at the same time.

This is the same time the mean stuff Melissa and my brother said about me in Season 3 is playing on TV, and yet I’m still trying to fix things. And they sit around and say I’m only trying to “make things right” with my family since my friends betrayed  me?

Um, excuse me, but what wasn’t “right” with my family? Oh yeah, my family betrayed me by joining the show behind my back and trashing me on it. I don’t want to keep bringing it up, but they keep bringing up our family “problems” and THAT’S our family problem!  No one else on any show has ever had to deal with an ambush like that. I think I’ve done a pretty good job with it. I got over it, forgave them, moved forward. I keep going to their events, I keep inviting them into my lives, and I keep my mouth shut about their personal lives. Have I ever said a word about their finances, lifestyle, pasts, parenting or personality problems?  I’m not suddenly interested in my family. I’ve ALWAYS been all about my family. I’m not perfect and I’m not saying I never had a private argument with anyone, but I’ve never publicly and intentionally hurt anyone in my family.

OK, back to Kathy and Rosie… It’s been weird to see Kathy put out there like she’s my only cousin. I obviously have other cousins — Rosie and her three brothers – just like I have other sister-in-laws, but only Kathy and Melissa joined the show, so I try to respect everyone else’s privacy. Once Rosie decided to come on the show more, we could talk.

                    Rosie Pierri … Wearing Kathy Wakile’s Communion dress…

It was nice to be able to sit with Rosie again and just talk face-to-face. I really looked up her to growing up. And it’s true, I was a papergirl because Rosie was! My father didn’t want me to, but I was obsessed with being like Rosie. Rosie got to take her bike, but my father had to drive me because he was nervous because I was younger.

I was close to both Rosie and Kathy, and when Kathy and Rosie had their issues, when Kathy didn’t want Rosie around, I stayed out of it. I let them work it out. I wasn’t trying to bring up the past because of anything other than Rosie sitting in front of me asking why things were the way they were. We were talking together about what we’ve been through, trying to learn from each other, comfort each other I think. Just like things are painful between me and my brother now, things were that way with her and Kathy. And it hurts. Rosie knows how I’m feeling because she’s felt that way. You can still see the pain in her face when we talk about it. But you can see I’m very careful not to bring up any details that would be hurtful to Rosie or Kathy. They were lucky enough to go through it privately and not on TV, and I respect their privacy. It did make me sick to my stomach to feel pulled between the two of them, and I’m so happy that after years of working it out and going to therapy together (which I only just found out! I guess some old-school Italians do go to therapy, but they keep it secret!), they fixed it. They’re actually an inspiration to me, because they got through it!

I was really hopeful therapy with my own brother was going to work, and I think you can see my brother and I are alike in a lot of ways. We’re both stubborn, we both think we don’t need therapy, but we love each other and we’re willing to try. We’re also not alike in a lot of ways. I would never talk to him like he talks to and yells at me. And I would never, ever bring my parents into this

 Dr. NewJersey… “You twoz can’t be helped… “

I did get a lot out of therapy that day, but after our session — out in the hall — I realized then that it wasn’t the past, it was the present that was bothering Joey. Joey truly believes the worst about me, believes bad rumors from bad people, and he can’t get over it. It breaks my heart.

I think that’s what it really boils down to: every bad thing that happens to or is ever written about Joey and Melissa, they blame me for. They accuse me of it on Twitter, on the show, in other magazines. I’ve never done anything to them, and I never would. First of all, I love my family. Second, their garbage would make me stink too, so why would I want that out there? Third, I’ve been through the anonymous and not-so-anonymous friends/sources putting out horrible lies about me, and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Again, one of the reasons I didn’t want to do a show with my family.

When Joey brought up an article about our parents and blamed me for it, I could have died. First of all, if you know anything about me, it’s that I’m fiercely protective of my parents. I don’t ever talk about their private business on the show. Never have and never will.

My brother doesn’t seem to feel the same way, but what he forgets is how often he talks about their private business with everyone! He thinks the only place the story about my parents could have come from is me? Joey, you just told a contractor last week on TV about them! A guy who obviously has no loyalty because he was telling tales about me to you!

From the day I was first on RHONJ, there have been horrible tabloid stories about me, but at least they were only about me. Then Kathy and Melissa and my brother join the show, and suddenly there are stories involving my parents! Are you kidding me? It’s my worst nightmare!

I love my brother more than anything, but I really feel like our parents should be off-limits on the show. My parents didn’t sign up for this and they don’t deserve it. Regardless of what my brother says on television, me, my brother, and my parents know the truth, and let’s just leave it at that.

So, back to the tabloids…. Even though they know it’s not true (hello, 99 percent of the tabloid stories are bad ones about me!), everyone on the show keeps trying to blame me for the tabloid stories. They keep saying it over and over and over… Why? Because they hope if they say it enough, that will make it true.

Why would they want it to be true? I have no idea. It’s sad because I would never hurt any of them like this.

You’ve all known me for four years. I’ve never obsessed about anyone on our show, never went out of my way to “find out things” about them, taunt them on Twitter, harass them, have my family  harass them. It’s just not my style. I’ve never done the dirty stories, pretended to be a “source,” or talked to shady people route. Ever. I’m not letting bloggers video me in my foyer. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever talked to Radar Online in my life. I’m too smart, too spiritual, and too freakin’ busy to waste my time on this kind of stuff. I’m taking care of four little girls and working!

Hear me clearly, Jacqueline: I’m not trying to accuse anyone else of putting the stories out there, I’m just saying it’s not me. I know people over-analyze my blogs to try and find some way I hurt them, because they don’t have any real reason to be mad. I never did anything purposefully or publicly hurtful to anyone. Again, I’m not perfect, I make mistakes, but I never have and never would never try and hurt someone that way.

                                             Jax Laurita… “Buy my skin cream!!  It works for me… look at my neck!  And I might need the extra money for bail!”

And good grief, two weeks ago I wasn’t implying anything about Jacqueline’s husband in my blog! I was literally trying to give an easy but emotional example I thought she might understand since she didn’t get why me forgiving Melissa one time didn’t count for everything I didn’t know she’d done over the last two years!

I don’t know how many times I can say sorry. I’m sorry I can’t take the blame for everything in everyone’s life. I’m not trying to take anyone down. I’m too busy trying to live my own life, trying to make myself a better person. Right after this season, I went on  Celebrity Apprenticeto find a new side of myself, and I think I found it. You all saw me there, and how I handled the pressure of that challenge. I learned a lot, and I will hopefully keep learning. Leaving the drama behind and raising money for sick children for NephCure put everything in perspective for me, and I’ll never be the same. Our time on earth is short, and I want to spend it helping people and raising my beautiful girls and enjoying my marriage, not trolling on Twitter to hurt people I’m mad at.

I’m going to just keep moving forward, continuing to open my heart to new people and new opportunities, and pray for the best for everyone.

I hope you’re all enjoying the summer! I’m loving the beach and the sunshine!

NOTE:  Tree just learned the word “malicious”… she’s usin’ big words and not many grammar errors in her BravoBlog. (It’s burning at the stake… not burning ON the stake…)   Tree’s blog is very detailed and flows too easily to be written by Tree.   So, whomever is writing Tree’s BravoBlog… nice job!!!

This from RHOC applies to the perceived family injustices felt by Tree!!

  1. Could JoeGo have a sexual addiction? He seems obsessed with sex and associates everything with it. The way he talks to his wife with the “poison”, sniffing her bikini bottoms and making crude sexual inuendo all the time. He needs to definitely keep seeing a therapist.


    • Eeeeew!!!! He sniffed her bikini bottoms? I missed that part. That’s perverted. He is a panty sniffing pervert. Gross! I, too, think it is repulsive the way he is always talking about sex and making sexual references. He does it in front of the kids, too. He has no boundaries. He acts more like a priapic teenager than a grown man.


      • I dated a Guy once who was really into women smells I wouldn’t call it perverted just a sexual turn on to him. Joe shouldn’t do it in front of his kids however
        As for sexual addiction No i dont think if he did he would be having sex multiple times a day with more then just his wife, People who have sex addiction do Not have lots of sex because they like it In fact they hate it and themselves its just like all addictions ( i really need to stop watching law and order svu It makes me google to much stuff)

        Joe and The Guidices need to tone the sex stuff down I swear if Chewy pulls out another vibrator i am going to dig my eyes out with a spork


      • IMO he has a Napolean Complex. He’s a short, tiny man and tries to make up for his size by talking about how much sex he has. It’s disgusting! I

        I’ve known and read about men like him and they are usually impotent at times. It’s all talk. No action. Many men who have the “little man complex” also will talk about beating people up and how “tough” they are. They’re really sad, little, pathetic wannabe men.


    • JoGo is just doing it for attention. To stand out from everyone else on the show and have something to be famous for. It got him some laughs last season, but now it is played out and annoying. His sister was always talking about sex and had a temper, so Joe is copying her in order to get as famous as her. His actions at the christening were premeditated. Joe banging on the table was suppose to be as notorious as the table flip. Who goes that crazy over their sister saying congrats? He planned on fighting with her that night. He is a sick attention whore!


  2. i think her ‘girls’ work well when they are dressed in identical designer pink shirts with matching “ovr-alls) designer pink shoes.. just super for working with stucco..and oh yeah those adorable head raggeez give us a break.s…to daintily mop the sweat from their hard working little brows…..


  3. I love Teresa & her family. I think what she says actually is correct. You can tell Rosie & Kath didn’t always get along & I can see Kathy as the type that would have “shut” her gay sister out of her reindeer games. I have always too been able to tell that Tree & Juicy Joe love Rosie just the way she is. & She is right in that before it was junk just about Tree & Joe now because of Melissa & Kath it is about the whole family. That is probably pretty hard regardless of the money. I hope they all work it out. As for Jackassline & Caroslime Clownzo, I hear they are not back for season 5. OH HAPPY DAY. Both are ugly ass boring old hags. Jax looks like a wax dummy & yeah if you are gonna get a face lift or 2 get your elephant neck lifted too lady. Cryst you are a make up artist & you have to be told that???? Caroslime is a mean girl and just an angry bitch. She has never been pretty, fashionable or interesting. Her kids seem like losers to me. Lazy, fat, & Albee is closeted obviously. & Now in the Star & other ragsheets Caroslime is posing with the Mobwives. Yeah okay Cal you’re one of em suuuuuuuurrreeee! Its Al Manzo’s dad that was associated with the Mob not Caroline’s Dad & Caroline is so un Italian. Doesn’t speak it look it or act it. Watch her & then watch Big Anj come on, no contest. Bye bye to the the Manzo/Laurita clan & not a minute too soon! YAAAWN!


  4. I truly feel sorry for Teresa’s parents. They seem to be very kind, loving people. I think T is telling the truth about trying to protect them from the tabloids and crazies. On the other hand, her brother is such a wimp that he’s more interested in one-upping Teresa that he doesn’t give a damn about his parents. I can’t even begin to imagine how humiliated they must have been when he announced on national TV that he supports them. He’s such a whiny little bitch!

    I’ve noticed several times that Teresa and Joe’s parents are embarrassed by him. Remember the christening? What kind of man does what he did? No wonder they like Teresa’s husband more. To them, I bet their son is a major disappointment. He’s petty and small not only in stature but he’s a small , whiny little man with a Napolean Complex who lets his wife run his life and relationships. I bet that drives his parents crazy!

    He’s also too stupid to understand how his wifeypoo eggs him on and gets him wound up about Teresa. She’s kept that feud going week after week. My husband would never allow me to constantly whine about his sister. My brothers would also never be little cry babies either. They would stand up to me and their wives for causing family problems. Family comes first and nobody should be allowed to constantly keep a family torn apart like MeGo do.


    • I hate to pull out the Culture thing But Is it not common in the Italian culture for the kids to help the parents out even if they can support themselves I know it is common in Asian cultures its usually the eldest male child who cares for the Parents as they get older often having them live with them or building a in law suite on the house.
      Maybe Joe supports his parents because it tradition and nothing to be ashamed of


      • Lisa, thanks for bringing up their Culture. I totally understand the culture thing but that’s not what I meant. If Teresa’s parents are like mine, they wouldn’t like for their personal business to be broadcast on national TV for all their friends and family to see.

        My parents are very proud, private people and I suspect Teresa’s are too. I just see no reason to embarrass them that way. We help my parents too but I don’t go around telling their personal business to the immediate world.

        Older people seem to keep things more to themselves than our generation does. They absolutely think it’s horrible that kids today put their entire lives on Facebook. They just don’t get it at all. lol


        • I totally understand and you are correct he shouldn’t have broadcast it on the TV.
          I am beganing to think There is something wrong with the Gorgas frontal lobes which is were your filter is.


        • after hearing Joe supports their parents, which has probably embarrassed them with the Paisans, it all adds up to me. They tolerate Joe and Melissa because they need their son to support them and Melissa is startig trouble because she wants him to have problems with his parents so he no longer has to support them.


  5. even if it is common in any culture for the son to take care of his elder parents. in no culture is it
    o.k. for that son to announce to the world. can u say loser.


  6. Alright yall. I watched, and I watched HARD to find something bad to day about the TheRapist. Only thing I can come up with is he is a proffesional who films a friggun session for a cable network television show. Hims is a quack too just like Dr. Sockless Sophony. I ‘spect he aint got no underwares own either. But so far,no one has dies on his watch so he is a frog hair better than Dr. SoPhony. Just a froghair though.


      • lol. We had a family councling session with our preacher once when I was growing up. He was telling my step-dad that he didnt give a flying fig how mad he got he shouldnt talk to us like he did.(take Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket X10 and that was my stepdaddy, God love him, he truly didnt know any better) But anyways, I got a giggle fit over hearing my preacher saying flying fig to my stepdad that I almost wet myself. Good times.


  7. Hello again…Happy 4th of July….Great day with my family and friends. My parents are very private people. I can’t think of a time when me and my sisters would have a fight and my father would call us. He would always say the same thing. “Girls, you fight in this house, you say what you want to each other in this house, but once you step out that door, you say nothing about your sisters or me and mommy. Right or wrong you defend each other and us. If I hear one word about any of you talking about the other, you deal with me.” That’s all we need to hear. My parents where wise to let us have our issues in the house, but never EVER did we take our biz or our parents biz to the outside. My father would have our butts.

    Ok fast forward to my children. They act wild at home, maybe say things they shouldn’t, do things that they know are wrong, but take them out in public and they are “Angels”. I rather have my kids act like animals at home, but know that once they step foot out that door it’s the same rules that my father issued. My parents would never speak to me or my sisters if we put their biz out like that. Do we help our parents, yes because that’s what children should do, but you NEVER EVER bring it up to them, or others EVER. You do what you do because you love and care for them. As they get older, more health issues come forth and you want to make sure they are ok. You don’t want them to worry about deciding if it’s food, heat, or meds that they can afford. With my parents language has been a issue, so we want to make sure no one takes advantage of them and make sure they understand what’s being said. It’s just what we saw my parents do for our grandparents, what we do for them and hope our children do for us.

    I think Tre’s girls will be ok..


    • firstgeneration, we may have the same parents! lol My parents had the same rule about being loyal to one another and keeping our personal business at home. I still, as an adult, don’t discuss my business, my parent’s business or my brother’s business with anyone except my family.

      Family loyalty was so instilled in us and I instilled it in my girls too. It’s a good quality to have. When someone tells me something they never have to worry that it will go any farther than me. I like that and it’s helped me along the way all of my life. Teresa and her brother need to be taught that. I shudder each time they start telling family business on national TV!


      • Its what they are paid to do in reality
        I wish they wouldn’t parade their sex lives all over TV Now that would embarrass my parents sex was only something my mom brought up to embarrass us at the dinner table


        • Lordy bee my momma tried to terrify me about sex. She woud try to come up with the most painfully graphic disturbing disgusting words she could to describe what happened when your hymen gets punctured, burst, desimated,destoryed, demolished, torn,ripped, gutted….ect.ect. and to hear her tell it you could friggun bleed to death. My momma was awfully crafty, she knew that “save yourself for someone special” stuff would not do the trick. She played on my low tolerance for discomfort.


            • For a time I got married off when I was 17 years old so I didnt have too long to play at the slutpuppy thing.


            • My mom didnt do the scare tactic But I was told That my husband would teach me everything I would need to know so she didnt need to. One time After i was married My mom blurted out SO LISA HOW DO YOU LIKE ORAL SEX My dad was there to
              I wanted to open the car door and jump out.


            • oh man Lisa. That had to be embarrasing. Question, was she talking about how did you like GIVING oral sex or how did you like getting it? Not that it matters but.. still


            • My mother constantly preached that we were entitled to mess up our lives all we wanted but not permitted to bring a new life into the mix. She believed birth control was god’s gift to women.
              The other piece of wisdom she shared was that some men couldn’t control their urges and if I should ever find myself in that situation I could offer to just touch it. Not sure what IT was.


    • This is EXACTLY what I was taught and exactly why I find, Joe Gorga, Kathy and Melissa disgusting! Joe and Kathy know better. With the way Melissa and her sister’s act, it is obvious they weren’t raised with the highest morals. They are dishonest, mean, trailer trash. Unfortuatelty these Marcos were able to convert Joe to their way of thinking.


  8. Did anybody else notice the difference between the way Tree spoke to Rosie during their chat & the way she has spoken to her brother, Melissa etc?
