TERESA GIUDICE: Tree’s BravoBlog… Look At The “WholePicture”… Looking Forward To The Future “Don’tLookBack”…

October 15, 2012   2:15 pm  Bravo

 Thanks to SH reader “Maya”!!!

Last week I dedicated my blog to all my fans and let them take over talking for me. (If you missed it, you can read it here. I didn’t just do that for the fans though, I also did it for the haters. Before you judge any of us, think about this:

More than half a million people follow me on Twitter. (I know they don’t all love me, but that’s OK. I love the ones that love me, and I respect everyone’s opinion.) With all those followers, and lots of people who don’t even follow but still talk about us, it’s a good bet that there are hundreds of thousands of comments about me and the RHONJ show on Twitter, right? They all exist. They’re all real. But there are too many of them for me to put them all on my blog.

I only have so much room for my blog each week, so I had to pick and choose which tweets to use. There were thousands of good ones and thousands of bad ones, but I chose the ones I chose because I had something to say. I was sort of telling a story. I wanted to point out certain things I thought were important or interesting or funny or ridiculous — things I thought would make for a good blog.

I’m sure if I had 10 different people pick out tweets for me, I would have had 10 totally different blogs. You could chose tweets that make me look great, or tweets that make me look bad. Can you see where I’m going with this? Welcome to TV!

There’s only so much room to tell the entire story  of a group of people’s lives in just 45 minutes, so a lot gets left out. Before you hate on me, or hate on any of us in front of the camera or behind it, remember, you’re only seeing a small part of the whole thing.
Thousands of tiny things, good and bad, make up all of our lives. There were so many fun and hilarious and even boring things that happened in our lives last year that you didn’t see. (Don’t miss the Lost Footage episode next week because you’ll get to see some of it, including our big Campout Cook Off!)

 

But if you want to get to know who we really are, try and look at the whole picture. Meet us at appearances, read all of our blogs from day one, see how we interact with people on Twitter, and you’ll see who you can relate to, who you wish you lived next door to, and who you can’t stand.   And just like your friends IRL, sometimes you’ll get mad at us when we’re having a bad day, but that’s OK too, because none of us are perfect.

I’ve found that the people that are my true fans, who stick by me, encourage me, and have become part of my new extended family aren’t blindly part of “Teresa’s Army” — it’s actually the opposite. They’re the ones who’ve taken the time to look at the whole picture and know a real person isn’t just one catchphrase or comment or scene or mistake. Thank you all. I am YOUR loyal fan!

And so our season is over! Thank goodness! It was a rough one, at least for me. (Again.) It does make me sad that the other women on my show all wanted to get together to try and take me down. But I guess it’s nothing new. Every city seems to have a Housewife that the other cast members suddenly stop getting along with — Bethenny, NeNe, Lisa — but they shake it off and keep being successful. So at least I’m in good company!

I’m not proud of how I let the other women get to me at the reunion, how I lashed back and said things I regret now. I wish I had more control, I tried to stay in control, but I had just let the entire season of them saying things behind my back and plotting against me get to me. It’s hard to shrug off when it’s family. It built up, and I didn’t handle it perfectly. I wish I had. I wish I was perfect, but I’m not. But I’m not going to beat myself up about it, and I’m not going to let the bad get me down.

 

It’s been a year since we filmed all the bad stuff, and it’s been a really great year. I have more blessings than I can count or deserve! I just shot the cover for my 4th cookbook:FABULICIOUS ON-THE-GRILL: Teresa’s Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes! It will be out in Spring 2013: http://amzn.to/RtCq8e.

And no, no Housewives or their kids or pets or car washes  were harmed in the production of this cookbook! Milania Hair Care and my Fabellini are doing amazing — we’re adding new retailers all over the country every day! My Juicy Joe and I are great. He’s still my best friend and my rock. One of the best things about him is that he just doesn’t care about the B.S. You need people like that in your life, especially if you work in the B.S. Industry! And my girls, my beautiful gorgeous girls, are great! My baby Audriana just turned 3, can you believe it? And my Gia is almost 12!

My heart is still broken for my brother and his family. Only time will tell what the future holds for us. Right now, I just can’t look back.

You know, there was this movie when I was kid in the ‘70s called The Gumball Rally where these guys were all racing across the country and Franco, the Italian guy, says, “And now, my friend, the first rule of Italian driving,” and then rips off the rearview mirror from his car. “What’s behind me is not important,” he says. I always loved that scene, and it’s true. We have to keep looking forward to move forward. I’ve ripped off the rearview mirror. The road ahead is so exciting, and I hope you’ll stay on it with me!

Follow me on Twitter @Teresa_Giudice or visit my website at www.teresagiudice.com for more information on my appearances, where to buy Fabellini, Milania Hair Care, and PearlBrite!

Tanti Baci,
Teresa xx

  1. Did someone suggest Carowhine & Al Sr. fight? No!NO!NO! That doesn’t happen. Now sit in the corner while queenie-goo decides what to do with your head :P She’s perfect therefor her family is perfect- you didn’t know? It’s a narcissistic thang, happens right before the head spinning.

  2. Just watched the last part of the reunion on my lunch break and I have come away thinking Melissa is just a nasty bitch she was loving every minute of it. Jacqueline is a sorry excuse for a friend if ever there was one, I get that she was mad but to divulge confidences the way she did for the whole world to hear was disgusting.
    Caroline made me laugh when she said Teresa takes sensitive subjects and goes to the press with them, Oh does she mean like Jacqueline has done with the autism thing? LOL she is so full of it.
    Kathy just needs to STFU she was just making white noise! All of the men with the exception of Joe Guidice are big bunch of big girl’s blouses. Richie couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag.
    I do feel a little sorry for Joe Gorga because I think he really is upset and would like to make amends but as long as he is married to that Bitch Melissa it will never happen she does not want it to happen she wears the pants and he follows along like a lap dog.
    I do not get along with my brother-in-law but guess what? I don’t have to, my husband goes to his house, meets him for drinks ect they have a relationship outside of me. I don’t get the in order to have a relationship with her brother Teresa MUST except and love Melissa I don’t see why.
    The other thing I came away with was Everybody, except Melissa and Kathy knew something was going down, Caroline and Jacqueline are such liars, especially Jacqueline I do not believe for one second that in all her morning 1 and a half hour conversations with Kim D this did not come up.
    So why is all this blamed on Teresa they all knew something was going to happen and who to, just not what exactly. I hope Teresa goes on to bigger and better things and leaves their miserable asses in the dust.

  3. Teresa’s ghostwriter/blogger did a wonderful job filling her blog with a bunch of BS. How gullible you all are thinking it is Teresa’s words or even thoughts.

      • none of us care if she gets assistance to make her blogs more legible and understandable. That is why she is successful. She makes smart choices about where to get help where she falls short when she can and the situation presents itself I wouldn’t give a rats but if Jaq had some help on her blogs. Maybe they wouldn’t spend the whole time talkign about Theresa. It would be refreshing.

    • I think she writes them herself, and could give u a explanation why, but I dont care what u think of me, so I will refrain from wasting my time ;)

  4. Ugg, I don’t want to know any of these pet name things. Yuck, more some than others. ;P I know I’ve said it before , but there has to be a more interesting h/w in NJ than Mego. Fake & boring. Two of the worst sins you can committ. Well in t.v. world boring is about the worst. Fake is just boring in it’s self to me. Phony smile phoney laugh, she may bash Tre for attention, but I think even the hate is phony on Mego’s part. Jealous, yes. Hating ? I doubt it. I don’t think she knows how silly she looks being a mom & grown woman & just fakes everything up. Blacchhh. Boring.

  5. The only one who is defensive here buddy, is you. The comment i made pertained to what pitty pat may have incinuated as a role model, Maybe you should actually read the comments and try to UNDERSTAND what is being said before you run your mouth. You ask me a question about teresa income and her mansion. No one was discussing that. Again, maybe you should pay attention puhleaze as to what is being written instead of attacking every poster on here that is a teresa fan. I am giving you the same energy you are giving others. You are proving your statement, you reap what you sow.

    • Thanks sweetie. I really doubt the poor sucker actually has access to anyone’s financials. I just click ignore. I will re-state it so that certain people are clear IMO Teresa is an inspiration and a role model. Our family has had a rough time with our dear ones diagnosis but I am going to take a page out of Teresa’s playbook and stay positive and do everything in my power for the best possible outcome. The race has just begun and the finish line isn’t even in sight? Why would I give up now or believe for a moment that we cannot even begin to grasp our beloved’s potential. Teresa taught this old dog some new tricks. Smile y’all!

    • wow struck a nerve, this blog is a virtual Teresa love fest and anyone with a differing opinion is bullied! pipe down pit bull! to bad you are not discussing FACTS instead of fiction you cant answer the question right? no one that makes $79,000 a year can live in a house like that!! DUH

      • Her house is listed as only being worth 1.4 million. Over a 30 year mortgage she could be paying anywhere between $4000 and $6000 a month, depending on their interest rate and how much they put down.

    • Look at the FACTS and stop being a Bully, I am discussing her mansion if you can’t handle the truth dont read my posts, get it?

      • Chris… you have bullied your opinion to a ton of people on this thread. Your nasty negative attitude is not welcome by anyone. Maybe you should read ms SH rules and STOP attacking people. The same goes for you DARLING, you dont have to read mine.
        There is no nerve struck here, you care WAY too much about teresa and her hubby’s business. Why dont you go stalk her. I do not get offended by whatever misagosh you say, because teresa business is NOT my business. Do not try and bully ME about a stupid mansion and all your jack nicholson ‘you cant handle the truth’ bull. MOVE ON already.

        • the weird part is that their finances have been and continue to be scrutinized by the court system. i defer the determination of the affordability of their house to the courts and not someone who is commenting on posts to be disagreeable and get people riled up.

        • Do we know how much is owed on the house? First, second mortgage, etc. That is the only number that matters anyway. The government typically inflates the value for higher taxes. They are doing it to me right now. Didnt Joe Giudice build that house? If so, the cost would have been way lower. And anyone can be their own general contractor….even those who arent involved in real estate. So if the Giudices were well off at one point, isnt it possible they have much of the house paid off? If joe gorga can plunk down 1 million to build his spec house….er I mean dream house….couldnt Joe Giudice have done the same?

          • 1 million was just for the lot according to Mellisa on the reunion not the house that’s what she said when Teresa said they didn’t buy a lot in Franklin Lakes because they were to expensive and so they bought in Montville and said she would show the papers. Personally I don’t believe they paid 1 mill for a lot but I live on the other coast and for that money you’d get a whole mountain top. Plus when they had to modify their loan to a conventional from a construction loan didn’t their payments go up over 14k per month? How do the Gorga’s pay that along w/ins, electric, water/sewer/garbage, car pymts. food you know the basic month to month living expenses? Especially with Joey always on Twitter almost as much as Jaxhole and going to every single outing that MeHo goes to. When does he actually work himself?

  6. There are a lot of details that ought to go into a decent explanation of why the “ladies” hate Teresa so much, but here’s an attempt at a really simple distillation: Teresa knows how to SURVIVE and how to be HAPPY. The latter especially is no easy accomplishment for a lot of ppl, and certainly not easy for the Gruesome Foursome.

    • No teresa knows how to “spin it” to give you the perception that she is happy, she desperately wants to have a relationship with her brother this makes her very unhappy, and her Husband treats her like crap!

      • Chris I have read through the entire blog/comments and I have some questions for you! How much are you getting paid to insert yourself in the posters comments? What are you gaining? Why not just state your oppinion and keep it moving? Is Chris NYC the only name you go by? Is it important to you that everyone hates Tre&Joe? I

        • Chris sounds like a commenter from another blog I read. Same phraseology, same syntax, same repetitive “dog with a bone” style. It’s suspected over there that she’s one of the Marco sisters.

  7. I would be interested to watch next season, only to see if melissa and anyone else, can do anything else except talk about Theresa and stir the pot with her husband and his family. Love to see if there is anything else she can do…and I don’t mean sing as we already know that a person her age shouldn’t be trying this ridiculousness. Any for anyone that keeps saying Jay lo as a comparison. She used to be on In Living color and she was a choreographer and super hot whens he was younger. she has been doing entertaining movies since her early 20’s and was a huge star. People still like her because she is J Lo – no teenagers care or watch her music, just us older peeps, if that out of nostalgia. Me Go is not going to reach the teenie bopper crowd.

    • “we already know that a person her age shouldn’t be trying this ridiculousness” Nancy. you made me smile with that line. :) True that!!

    • No on compares MeHo to J-lo – on a serious level! The joke is MeGo-HO-Ho is just a J-Lo Wannabe! In other words Meho is NO…..J-lo…and that’s a fact…jack!!!

  8. Ms SH, Chrisnyc is not playing by your rules. Please clarify with her and poof her if she doesnt comply. (Does not play well with others. ). Thank you.

    • Paula2 have I disrespected anyone? no I haven’t, if you don’t agree with my opinion don’t read it, this is still America right? i am free to give my opinion, I am not name calling just stating facts

  9. Teresa is fabulous, RIGHT yeah! I am going to run up huge sums in CC debt buying stuff I can’t afford then turn around and file Bankruptcy ! then withdraw it cause I know I am being dishonest and could potentially do jail time!! yeah her husband is a real winner that may go to jail after using his brother’s ID to obtain a drivers license!! calling your wife the “C” word– these people are Losers and no one should be looking up to them!

    • I’m going to start my own business and call it Chriselyn INC. I’ll rack up millions of dollars from various people and organizations, I’ll then line the pockets of my kids and my family with bank….and then I’ll Drop the ball…and never deliver the promised and paid for goods! TO Boot: I’m going to file bankruptcy under Chriselyn INC…..so I NEVER have to pay a single penny of that money back to anyone!! Gee, maybe looking up to the Laurita’s is more up your alley!!

  10. Once again……A successful person is one that can build a strong foundation by the bricks that are thrown at her….keep throwing and Teresa will continue to build her Empire!

    • Exactly tlcory. If we let our detractors deter us we would never move forward. Teresa has already built a fortress from those bricks and ITA hope she builds an empire.

      • People can say what they want about Tre but she has been the only one that has moved on and is bettering her life, all the others are stuck on the hate train that broke down 2 seasons ago. How many of us has had friends, family etc that have gone through hard times and our advice to them was to move on, the best revenge is a happy successful life and Tre has done this yet so many people despise her for this same thing I’m sure they have advised someone in their life to do, I don’t understand the double standard. On a side note, Jax……ugh did anyone notice how she sat at the reunion? I mean really! At one point she actually laid down, what is wrong with her? I remember when raising my daughter and continually telling her when she has a dress on to sit like a lady, I do this with my Granddaughter now, Jax is so inappropriate, dress or not you are on a TV program learn how to have some self control and behave accordingly, also, she could NOT keep her mouth shut and stay out of ANY of Teresa’s conversations with anyone…I certainly don’t understand the Jax fans, what do they see inspirational in her to want to be a fan of hers, not trying to be mean but I really am curious. Ok rant over, Hope everyone is having a great night!

        • You made many excellent points TL. I don’t know how Jax can even begin to posture as a role model. The panty sniffing comment re: Tre discovering her brothers g-string/elephant apparatus was crude and unbecoming. Jax has no boundaries and is rolling around like a loose cannon. She may have the big house and expensive cars but she doesn’t have any class or credibility.

          • She might not even have the big house and expensive cars for very much longer. Though, she might end up in THE big house, as in prison.

          • Oh so Jax made that comment…I heard it but I didn’t know who said it but was thinking that was just wrong! Why would she even say that? Is she now trying to convince the viewers that Teresa is into incest now? She better watch it because Teresa’s is going to get fed up enough to sue her for defamation of character or something along that line. Good Lord that woman is insane, I know everyone has been saying it but this reunion REALLY proved it.

  11. Maybe Jax and MeGo can move in together. Bye Bye Mcmansion ! Hello-o-o-o old van down by the river. Is MeGo Jaxstabber’s new girl crush? Careful MeGo apparently Jax is quite familiar with panty sniffing.

  12. okay I can’t read anymore of this BS…when people say “tre’s followers attack”..actually the anti-tre’s attack first (and not very well, might I add) want some proof? well let’s back up to the top where someone else wrote a nice comment (to teresa) and chrisnyc posts “do you really think she is reading these posts?” kinda rude, considering that poster did not attack you (chrisnyc) or anyone else for that matter. The fact that this blog is open to all comments and opinions means that anyone can write something nice to a housewife and we (meaning you negative nellys) can leave them alone! So I keep reading down the comments and I see Sophia writes “Teresa’s ghostwriter/blogger did a wonderful job filling her blog with a bunch of BS. How gullible you all are thinking it is Teresa’s words or even thoughts.” Thanks for calling us gullible…now that’s a great way to start off a conversation…attack everyone! (insert sarcasm). We get it….anti-tres hate that juicy is probably a cheater, they hate that they had to file for bankruptcy….they hate that they are living a life they can’t afford most of the time…..well the lauritas filed for bankruptcy, Al Sr is a speculated cheater, and katfish and meho both lived a different life before RHNJ….Meho’s “mansion” is just a spec home, which was hardly furnished (hence why they filmed in the closet only) and Katfish was a hairdresser and her nasty husband owns one gas station…..but the only part the anti-tres can see is what tre does….why not tell us all the wonderful things the other housewives do??? oh that’s right…there isn’t anything!! (just stating this now…this comment is not meant for lisa irishdragon…because she posts with integrity and does not attack others!)

    • That’s the irritating thing about the anti-Tre haters. They completely ignore everything else the other cast members have done, even they’ve done the same thing that Tre and her husband have done. The Giudices filed for bankruptcy? Well, so did the Lauritas. Where’s the hate for THEM? Joe Gorga got smacked a lawsuit on him for not paying his workers. Where’s the hate for him? Teresa has lied on the show, but then again, so has THE REST OF THE CAST. Caroline lied about hearing her say awful things about Melissa to her mother (It’s a lie because Teresa only speaks Italian to her mother, and Caroline doesn’t know Italian); Jacqueline lies that she wasn’t a stripper (Danielle, Teresa, and other commenters on Fame-Whorgas have stated that she was); Melissa also lied about being a stripper AND she lied about knowing Angelo (The fact that she changed her story numerous time in the finale proved that); and Kathy lied about the cookies in Teresa’s cookbook being her mother’s recipes when they were based on the recipes of Teresa’s mom (There’s no way that they were “passed down” because Kathy’s mother is the sister of Teresa’s father, and they didn’t live in the same area because Kathy’s mother wasn’t raised with her brother).

    • i agree – and i was not a tre fan until this year — i liked her and thought she was funny and goofy — but this year i became a big fan because i am so over the constant beating the other 4 do on her that i feel protective – like enough already!! the more they try to kick her when she’s down the brighter her star gets — and all the comments negating her being a role model keep lumping juicy in with her and saying ‘they’ — i think every comment regarding her being a role model was directed at her — i saw no indication people were saying juicy was too

  13. I find it interesting that Teresa lists NeNe, Bethenny, and Lisa as the housewives that were turned on by their cast mates… because the irony of it? All three of them were loved even more by the viewers. Especially Bethenny and Lisa.

  14. I think it’s good that at least Teresa and Caroline tried to take the high road with their blogs. Who wants to take bets Jacqueline and Melissa’s will be the “I’m still trying to prove I’m right” nasty and hateful ones?

    • I am not taking that bet. Oh boy, Jackholine hasn’t written a blog in how many weeks? She is saving up all that vitriol for one last (I hope) blog where she will be flinging poo left and right like some deranged chimp at the zoo.

      • 2 days ago on twitter she posted this….so why hasn’t it been posted is Bravo holding it back or has she not sent it in to Bravo? She is so damn transparent. She wants to keep on talking about T and once she posts her blog she said she is done talking about her according to her tweet her just can’t give that up yet.

        Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita

        I wrote a blog. Not sure when it will post and then no more mention of this season. It’s done now & so is my friendship with Teresa#Thankful

        • That b*tch is crazy. I still don’t know what Teresa did to her that was so horrible. If it is about supposedly setting MeGo up, why is Jackholine still friends with Kim D. whose fingerprints are all over that mess. I just don’t get it and Jackholine looks like an insane person for having such hatred for Teresa who didn’t do anything to her.

          • I think she was following orders from DonCaro & family and she was also doing everything in her power to keep the attention on Teresa and not on her and Chris’s business being “forced” into bankruptcy. Focus all the hate on T so the viewers don’t have time to focus on $55 million dollars and God knows what else is in their closets. Did you notice how she tried to change up her responses to T with saying “Honey” every time. Remember when T called Danielle honey at the Poshe show and Danielle told her not to call her honey and T said how about Bitch is Bitch better. Jackstabber was trying and failing with the honey this and honey that to the point every time she said honey I said Bitch to the TV. LOL (under my breath though)

          • looking back at some of the comments Wacko made while they were still friends (i’m so bummed its not OnDemand in my area i would love to go back and watch some earlier episodes) — i think wacko was mad that tre only talked to Wacko about her problems and didn’t inquire maybe as to how CJ was doing with his diagnosis and i think Wacko thought tre even twittering with Danielle was the ultimate betrayal because of the ashleeee incident — but tre mentioned on the reunion that wacko had asked to not discuss CJ and i think tre just left it alone completely as opposed to only leaving it alone when they were filming — and i think wacko is obsessed with tre and if tre made a move to make up with wacko that she’d welcome her back with open arms — i think wacko is ultimately upset that she’s out of tre’s life — sort of like a bad breakup where you can’t get over your BF. pretty sad.

            • Nicholas is the son diagnosed with Autism, not CJ.
              Also, I think Teresa suspected that Jac would go off the deep end and start spilling her guts, so T started holding back any incriminating info. Remember, Jac has “mutual friends” of T’s. Jac probably told a mutual friend something T said in confidence, so she knew not to trust Jac. Jac was running to all the blogs way before their falling out. I think T knew what type of person she was and knew not to share.

          • Yeah – I am still trying to figure out why Jax was “such a mess and sobbing hysterically” in the car ride home from the Posche fashion show. What the hell was SHE crying about??? She didn’t look that upset when she told Joey Gorga she would send him the texts??

            If we have to go thru another season of Jax “crying” about made up things – I WILL NOT WATCH!! I am seriously hating this botoxed hag!

            • I would like to see the after effects of all the Botox and crap she injected in her face. No way the Juvaderm / Botox / other silicone stuff can stay looking good.

            • Jack=as is a cyberbully with a cray cray, addictive personality coupled with way too much of the vino. Bad combo. Should be blocked by twitter execs. She’s a dangerous mess. Get off the keyboard Jac and pay attention o your children.

            • @ EM They were all at Kim G’s condo across the street having a “we killed off Teresa” party. I’ll bet money Jac stayed after everyone else, Kim G probably promised her driver to take her home. She passed out at Kim G’s and never made it to the reunion because she and Kim drank themselves blind the night before…when she didn’t show up the producers went to her house and that is why she was not there, they couldn’t get at her…when Jac stated why she wasn’t at the reunion during part one of this year’s reunion the production company put out a tweet stating they were at her house in the morning, they asked if she remembered…

      • Hilarious. LMAO. It is a little unsettling, tho, to watch and read Jacqueline self destructing before your eyes. What the he l is the matter with Chris that he doesn’t stop her.? Oh, I guess her craziness distracts viewers from focusing on his financial deceit What a great guy..

  15. Couldn’t agree more. I think Jax regrets listening to Carowhine’s hatred , where is that going to get you? Now she’s lost a 10 year friendship. Teresa’s flawed like everyone , but in the overall picture I think she’s a better person then Caro & has a more interesting life etc. I never understood , if you’re going to make a choice, why Carowhine over Tre?? What did Caro offer ? A place to lay the blame of her unhappiness maybe, but where has that gotten her? I just don’t think Jax’s fall is as funny as
    Carowhine’s. Partly because I think Jax started at a better place than Caro & partly because of the liquid that seems to be replacing something in her life.
