TERESA GIUDICE: Tasting While in Napa On The Next RHONJ… Tree Says ‘SkinnyGirl’ Tastes “Diet-y”…

July 20, 2012  3:50 pm   US...  

NOTE: Tree is not smart enough to start “in-fighting” amongst the HWs franchises!  Tree ‘dissing’ ****BLEEEECH***Frankel was more than likely a line given to her by producers… hoping to create not only minor discord, but to align Tree’s product with ****BLEEEECH***Frankel’s.  

Buying liquor; ‘Skinnygirl'; Hmmm; what was the name of that other HWs drink?… Fabe something; let’s try that, too.

Tree probably didn’t even know what she was talking about or why she added “Skinnygirl” to her comment! 


In Sunday’s new episode of The Real Housewives of New JerseyTeresa Giudice travels to a vineyard to research flavors for her new line of Bellinis, called Fabellini.

With her husband Joe Giudice helping her with the tasting, Giudice, 40, discuses how she wants the flavor of her new cocktail to taste and subsequently slams former Real Housewives of New York City star *** BLEEEECH*** BFrankel.

 Juicy Joe Giudice… “I don’t care what your ‘lini drink tastes like, Tree… as long as it goes with pizza, it’s good.”

“My thing is I don’t like anything that tastes diet-y,” she explains. “For instance, Skinnygirl tastes diet-y. I don’t like that.”

NOTE:  See SH review of Skinnygirl Margarita from August 2011... NO ONE liked it!!!   Still have this bottle… in case someone visits who is curious about the drink!  Otherwise, it’s just takin’ up space in a refrigerator!!

Frankel, 41, launched her company, Skinnygirl Cocktails, in 2009. In April 2011, Frankel sold the Skinnygirl cocktail brand to Fortune Brands’ Beam Global for an estimated $100 million.  Giudice’ launched her Fabellini line in February and announced on her website, “I’m so so so proud of it. And it tastes delicious! And Fabellini is low calorie–less than 1/2 the calories of other ‘skinny’ drinks.”

            Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo… at Fabelinni Launch Party last year…

Despite the diss, a source tells UsWeekly that Giudice looks to Frankel for inspiration.  “Teresa will work as hard as she can till she gets to Bethenny status,” a Giudice pal recently told Us. Another source attributes her shrewd business sense to her appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice. “She learned a lot from Donald Trump about bringing her brand out even more.”

Tree Explains WHY She’s Gonna Win Celebrity Apprentice…

In May, the Bravo star launched her third cookbook, Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit, and began a national book tour. “She knows this is a critical time for her and any future opportunities, so she doesn’t stop working,” the Giudice source said. “Bravo would definitely give her her own show, especially after this season. There’s so much drama.”

  1. Speaking of housewives liquor, doesn’t Kathy have a line of red velvet martinis or something like that? As much as I don’t like Kathy, I have to admit that sounds pretty good.

  2. BETHANY ride your 15mins of fame as long as you can!!!! Teresa same as well!!! KEEP MAKING $$$$$$!!!!

  3. There is no comparison between Bethany and Teresa. Bethany is smart, witty and she is the first HW to actually make a success of her ventures. Teresa can barely speak. As for Tre having her own show, I would not watch. I can see all I want of her stupidity and ugliness on RHONJ, thank you very much! Tre’s husband Joe is a drunken slob! A low life thug! He disgusts me in every way. He is ignorant. How many times have we watched a drunken Joe acting out with his kids in the room? How many times do we have to watch poor little Gia in tears because of her parents horrible behavior? How many times do we have to watch Teresa blame everyone else for her troubles?
    Enough is enough!
    Bethany has had and continues to have a lot of success because she is creative and smart. I love her show and I hate to see it end. She has a beautiful little family and with what they have gone through in only 3 short years, they really are doing well. I can understand why Bethany and Jason have decided to take their personal life out of the spotlight, at least for now.

    • I have never once seen Gia in tears because of her parents. I have seen Gia in tears because of her uncle and because of BubbaJax and Chuckie. As far as ur assessment of Bethany vs Teresa, if you measure them on business, Bethany hands down. On personal life, Teresa is by far the most content with her husband (notwithstanding your description of him) and kids. Bethany doesn’t realize or is unable to appreciate how great Jason truly is. Finally, Teresa has stepped up the the plate because of her husband’s destructive decisions, I am convinced that Bethany would have shoved Jason out the door and told him not to let the door hit him on the way out. So all in all, Teresa wins hands down as far as overall loyalty and success (which I do not measure in dollar signs)

  4. I have asked this question so many times… Not a Jaco or Manzoid fan but why do so many love Tre? What is so special about her? I was at a party where they offered her fabulini and it tasted crapolini.

    • LaFora: There are no “teams on SH or any “hate” towards any Housewife. Can only guess that her PR team is doing a fabulous job of making her look good and people are responding to her! TFC!! SH

    • What as converted some people is how she can stand her ground 5 to one. 4 other HW n miss Andy. I don’t like seeing people ganged up on. She’s not without fault, but she does not appear to be evil like her other cast mates. They deliberately try to paint her I. A bad light. That’s how I see it.

    • I don’t “love” Teresa. Like Meaow said I feel what her relatives and friends are doing to her is just wrong. Family is suppose to love you and stand by you and they have viciously thrown her “under the bus” and keep putting that bus in reverse and running her over, over and over again. Teresa is at a low point and needs their support to get through this, not added stress. I don’t understand why people hate Teresa so much. I even felt sorry for Danielle season 1. Caroline and Dina wanted nothing to do with her, and Danielle so badly wanted to be their friend. Jacqueline and Teresa tried to have a friendship with her. Teresa attacked her at the dinner, which was wrong, but it was because Danielle was getting defense and insulted her.

      • Exactly! For goodness sake, even Casey Anthony’s parents stood by her! I would never forgive my family if they did what Teresa’s family attempted to do to her, and I mean never.
        I honestly think if her family and friends hadn’t done this to her, there would have been a backlash against her for all the financial shenanigans.
        In a way, she has only them to thank for her popularity now.

  5. I disagree that Teresa is stupid or unintelligent. She is inarticulate, but that doesn’t mean she lacks intelligence. Some people are inarticulate, well, just because. Teresa appears to be inarticulate because English is not her first language. She can always find the correct Italian words when she wants.I think she is simply bilingual, with Italian being her stronger language.

    • Teresa was born in the US and she does not speak Italian. Remember during their trip to Italy…..she was not able to speak Italian. For that matter, she also doesn’t speak English!

      • She was born in Italy- great, that’s all we need this election cycle- more birth-place denyers! ;)

        • Teresa Giudice was born in Paterson, New Jersey on May 18, 1972 to parents who emigrated from Italy. She earned a degree from Berkeley College in Fashion Marketing and Management. After college, she worked in the fashion industry in New York. She is married to Joe Giudice, a childhood friend and entrepreneur. They have four daughters: Gia (born 2001), Gabriella (born 2004), Milania (born 2005), and Audriana (born 2009).

      • I don’t remember that, but she probably speaks dialect. I have heard her speak Italian on camera several times. She didnt learn english until she went to school.

      • Hey KateH, let’s do a little fact checking before u spew. Teresa’s first language at home was Italian. She spoke Italian in Italy. Have you heard her parents speak and that’s after 40 years living in this Country, can u imagine how they spoke when Teresa was first born to age 5 when she went to school?

        • Hi, Antonella, I am stating the facts. During the trip to Italy, Teresa had to keep asking for translations, Italian to English. She was only able to say common greetings in broken Italian.
          I understand exactly what it is like when parents speak a different language in the home. My parents spoke French. Until the time of their death they still chose to speak French instead of English. I still consider English my first language. Many people move to the US from foreign countries speaking a different language and in a matter of a few years are fluent in English. Face it, Teresa is just not articulate and not very bright!

          • That’s bologna. I speak FLUENT Italian, I read Italian and I write in Italian, I understood every word she said. Her Italian was dialect and it was perfect. Whoever told u that she wasn’t speaking Italian is incorrect. I speak from actual experience. I grew up with parents who spoke strictly Italian in an Italian neighborhood where there is little need to learn English. Have you heard Teresa’s parent’s speak English? They have been here for over 40 years and yet they are difficult to understand. Furthermore, the woman who u say is “not very bright”, is certainly getting plenty of mileage endorsements, money, isn’t she?

          • My parents have been here for 40+ years. While my father speaks English well, my mother doesn’t. I too didn’t speak English until I started school (I was born in the US). I have trouble to this day with “sayings” and some words. Newsflash…when I go to Portugal, I too have a hard time understanding some of it. Also, do the to “slang” that we use I have to ask for translations on some words or how I would say something correctly not with “slang” words.

    • Perfectly stated Amy! My degree is in second language acquisition and Tre’s communicative style (“inarticulate”) is very typical of second language learners. Communication has nothing to do with intelligence an people that argue otherwise don’t know what they’re talking about.

  6. People said the same thing about Jessica Simpson and her net worth is over 100 million and growing. Teresa maybe book stupid but business smart.

      • Which is what smart people do. :)
        Meanwhile, BubbaJax follows Caro, and Caro listens to herself. That’s gotten them to an, uhmm, interesting place in terms of fan reaction.

  7. In lots of homes where the parents are immigrants the children only speak the language that is native to the parents and learn English once they enter the school system. So that might be why Teresa says English is her second language.

  8. Stupid all the way to the bank. Real difference is with regard to their personal family lives, Teresa loves her husband and family and Bethany is miserable most of the time and can’t see how good she has it.

  9. Seriously, is there really any debate about this?

    – Ingredientses
    – cummin
    – Continuing to spend foolishly while in the midst of a very public bankruptcy.
    – insisting that using the phrase “going away” will fool everyone into thinking that your husband isn’t going to prison.
    – staying married to a verbally abusive drunk
    – Heckyll and Jyde
    – Not knowing what “solstice” means
    – allowing poor Gia (and the other girls to a lesser extent) to endure such public humiliation
    – Cro-magnom hairline

    • Well, Butch, you can’t use her cro-magnom hairline as an example of her stupidity…LOL. There is no proof she is spending foolishly. What you see on TV is not always real and she gets freebies. I have heard Joe Gorga, Melissa, Kathy and Caroline misprounce words. Oddly enough Joe Giudice does better than them with pronouncing words. Nothing wrong with wanting to use “going away” to protect your daughters from hearing the word jail. I would do the same. Obviously america knows whay going away means, so she aint trying to fool noone. Staying married doesnt make her stupid, it makes her loyal. Heckyll and Jyde…OK I got nothin’! yeah that was really dumb. I didn’t know what solstice meant either. Gia thing, Is a matter of opinion. You are entitled to yours opinion and I am to mine. I can’t say how you feel is wrong.

      • For the record, “Freebies” are counted as income and you have to pay taxes on freebies. I seriously doubt if they got the materials for their new garage/shed as a freebie. Also her new furniture and her new car… you really think these are all “Freebies?” Also a makeup artist and hair stylist every times she leaves the house? Only in certain circumstances is any of this considered a business expense.
        I can totally understand Tre wanting to use the term “going away” in front of the girls. In fact, this is an old “mafia term”….LOL! But, using the word jail in regards to their father could be very frightening for the girls and they should be protected.
        As for her staying with Joe, even though he is a nasty drunk, a criminal and is perhaps
        cheating. Does this make her loyal? Maybe, maybe not. Women often stay with a man out of fear of being alone or fear of change. Teresa is Catholic, and her family is “Old country catholic”, this is a huge responsibility for her. Time will tell, what she will decide to do with her marriage. I don’t envy her being married to this Jerk!
        The reason that I see Tre as stupid, is not only her inarticulate speach, but the fact that she cannot carry on a reasonable conversation. She “does not listen” and then respond with a reasonable answer. Teresa constantly says, Right? Am I right? and if anyone dares to say, No I see it differently, she starts screaming. She claims to know nothing about their bankruptsy, except that she owes some credit card bills, but when Andy asked her when these have to be paid by, she gave him a deer in headlights look and said she didn’t know. Then she claimed that no one had told her that there is a deadline. She claims to know nothing about their family income for all these years. When asked specifics about her cookbooks and recipes, she babbles in circles and says nothing. I would love to have a few concrete examples of Tre showing actual signs of intelligence? Seriously, I would really like to know!

        • I wouldnt call staying with a man who called me a whore and told me to shut up as Loyalty And much as people say he is joking It dosnt seem that way to me.

  10. That wallpaper of Teresa made me ROFL. First thought was she was auditioning for ‘Planet of the Apes’.

  11. I love this site and am going to be very honest. T is an idiot. Celebrity Apprentice was a fluke. She flew under the radar because she was intimidated by the mostly intelligent and talented people on there. She looks like Leona Helmsey, minus the brain. She’s a joke, helicoptoring over NYC with the other idiot, “What’s that big green thing?” Uhm, Central Park. I guess I’m in a bad mood, still paying off student loans.

  12. I agree about the Puttana comment. Has my hubby said things to me in public that he shouldn’t of? Yes, but I deal with that when we get home. I’m hoping that is what Tree does. I’m not excussing his behavior, but I have a friend of mine that her husband after years of being the main bread winner was laid off. It was a hard 4 years. He became evil and nasty at times. She explained to me that now that she was the bread winner it was hard for him to deal with the fact he wasn’t the provider. That he felt he was a loser and let his family down. No it wasn’t right how he acted but she just rolled with it and showed him more love. I’m happy to say that things turned around and before he got a job he noticed what he was doing. She said the key was NEVER EVER to make him feel that it was her money, that it was their’s. So I’m hoping that is what Joe is going thru.

  13. oh. my. gawd.

    teresa should NEVER, repeat NEVER wear her hair ‘back’ she has the worst hairline and NO forehead…her features are extremely strong and therefore needs calm, subdued colors

    worst styling ever….was it done by woman hating gheys???

  14. I’ve heard Tre mention Bethenny in glowing terms until the dreadful Manzoid on the talk show episode. I don’t blame Tre one bit for taking a shot at her. I like Bethenny, but, the Manzo’s are scum and shouldn’t be pandered to. Anyway, Tre needs to fire her stylist, or hire one. Weird sprayed up hair and piled on makeup do her no favors. Maybe it’s just me, but, I think Teresa is very beautiful. She has a sad hairline I wish she’d fix, but, the woman is just gorgeous.
