That’s right you read that correctly, Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, 47, and former co-star Caroline ‘my family’ Manzo, 58, were spotted filming recently.
No one is sure is what they are filming but this is interesting.
Caroline’s sister, Claudine ‘Dina’ Laurita then Manzo now Cantin, as she married her boyfriend Dave Cantin a few years ago and her sister Caroline had stopped speaking for years, due to issues while filming and Teresa. Teresa continued filming with Caroline during the earlier seasons, then their friendship dissolved a few years ago also.
During Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice’s interview with Bravo TV after Joe left for Italy, they played a video from a few years ago, where Caroline predicted that Joe would go to prison and Teresa would divorce him.
Teresa responded, “It’s just so sad, I guess, like she’s led that crooked life. Like, I’ve never led that crooked life. I guess she has and who she comes from and where she came from. Right back at her. How could she predict that? Could she have anything to do with what happened to Joe and I? Is she a rat? With her saying that? Those words would never come out of my mouth, regarding anybody. Maybe [she called the feds]! Those words would never come out of my mouth.”
Teresa served over 11 months in prison for 41 counts of mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and was released on the 23rd December 2015. Joe began his 41-month sentence for the same crimes in March 2016.
Caroline responded to Teresa on her son Albie’s podcast:
“I left five years ago. Within those five years, my name has come up numerous times, in positive ways and negative ways as well. I don’t respond to any of it, ’cause that was then and this is now. I live a very quiet life, as my Instagram will show, and I’m a normal person, a normal housewife. I don’t live by what people think of me. However, there comes a point in everyone’s life when enough is enough. I’m at that point with her because I have heard over the years that she has slandered me numerous times on her live shows, numerous times to people that just go up to her on the street, in the press, on reunions. This is not the first time she’s made this claim. Those are big words. Those are very big words. So once in a while, you gotta take the bully, pull ’em up by the shirt, pull ’em up to your face and say, ‘This is the reality. This is life. I am going to clear things up for you.’ And that’s what I’m doing.”
On her ‘crooked’ life
“She has a narcissistic personality, I get it. I see through her. She has no moral compass. She really doesn’t. She has said things to people that are completely fabricated. My initial thing was, ‘What the F is she … what?'” And then you have to laugh at somebody like that, because she is clearly grasping at straws. What’s my crooked life? I have a husband that has been busting his ass for the past 40 years, working 16-hour days six days at week at almost 60 years old. We just paid off our mortgage, congratulations to us. And guess what? We did it the old-fashion way, with a 20-year loan, and by blood, sweat and tears we paid it off. She’s right. We couldn’t be more opposite. And that pleases me. So the irony of that statement is not lost on me, and I think she’s grasping at straws, and I think she’s delusional, and I think she’s trying to throw mud and hoping it sticks on any which wall that will catch it, but it’s not gonna work.”
On being labelled a rat
“It’s not even worth me responding to, of course not. First of all, I had no knowledge of anything they’ve ever done in their life, you know? At the time, Teresa had had an abundance of legal issues and it was all over the press, and the writing was on the wall that something was going to happen because the indictment was so big. So you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.”
