Danielle Staub EXCLUSIVES Jacqueline Laurita Melissa Gorga Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ Siggy Flicker Teresa Giudice

AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVE: Teresa Giudice Talks Joe Giudice’s Response Of Her New Memoir; Calls Season 8 Emotional And Says She And Danielle Staub Are In A Good Spot

Real Housewives of New Jersey star shocked fans with how opened she was regarding her marriage to Joe Giudice in her new memoir, ‘Standing Strong.’ Teresa has been through a lot in most recent years starting off with leaving for nearly a year to prison for conspiracy and bankruptcy, losing her mother, and losing her husband who is currently serving time behind bars until mid 2019.

AllAboutTRH recently had the opportunity to speak with Teresa to see how she’s holding up, how she’s been able to open up and be vulnerable in her latest memoir, and we get all the rumors cleared about her relationship with her co-stars.

AllAboutTRH: Everyone’s pretty surprised with how open you’ve been in your new memoir, Standing Strong. Were you nervous how people were going to react to you being vulnerable?
Teresa Giudice: No I wasn’t. I have real feelings. And it’s okay to have real feelings. What made me be open about the struggles going on is losing my mother. Losing her just made me open up and I felt bad for my girls who didn’t have me in their life for a period of time.

How has Joe Giudice responded to your latest memoir where you talk about your frustration with him?
I was honest and told him that I opened up and how I’ve felt about everything. He was fine with it. And it was just very therapeutic for me. Now I feel a lot better. He has yet to read it but I will give him a copy. Hopefully when he comes homes things become better and stronger for the two of us.

Would you consider ever doing a spinoff show?
If it was the right timing and the right kind of spin off – I would. Maybe if I was to open up a restaurant and we filmed the journey of that or even touring restaurants! I am a foodie so that would be fun. Honestly, my kids don’t enjoy being on the show. The two little ones Milania and Audriana like it but Gabriella and Gia don’t like all the cameras so I wouldn’t do a spinoff where it focused on my family. If I did something – it would be just me on my own.

>Danielle Staub has claimed that your relationship with her is perfect now that she’s back on New Jersey. You two have had a history so how were you able to move forward with her?
We knew Danielle was going to possibly be on the season and there were people who refused to film with her if she came back. She was out of a job and a single mother and I wanted her to know that I could relate to her and cleared the air that I never said I wouldn’t film with her.

We’re really getting to know each other and it’s been good. Before she had people in her ear and I had people in my ear so we weren’t able to really get to know each other and now we’re building on our relationship.

Have you spoken to Jacqueline Laurita since she left the show?
No and I don’t plan on it.

Which one of your co-stars has been the most kind?
Siggy – I have a strong relationship with her.

How has your relationship been with your sister-in-law Melissa?
I am all about family. I want to keep the peace and I thank God we are on good terms. It was really hard for my family when we were all fighting. No parents want to see their children fight and it was terrible for our own children who were in the middle of it. Everything’s been great between us and we plan to keep it that way.

How would you describe this season?
Emotional. This season was very emotional for me. When I first start out – I had just lost my mother and was completely devastated. My mother and I were so close and everyone knew that. I am so grateful for my girls because if it wasn’t for them helping me get through it – I would have crumbled. Filming also kept my mind busy but after we stopped filming, I was so upset because I had more time to think and it wasn’t good. Now I have my dad living with me and of course I feel sad for him. It’s been hard for all of us. I am thankful that I have my family helping me through this.

Teresa has been through hell and back and continues to push through and stand strong. Thoughts on what Teresa had to say? Were you surprised by how open she was in her latest memoir?

  • HW JUNKIE

    There is something about Teresa that I will just always LOVE no matter. I always root for her! Can’t say the same about every Housewife.

  • Karen

    Thank you Roxanne. This was a very enjoyable exclusive. I have just purchased her book, and have only read a small part, but I completely understand her need to be honest regarding her complicated feelings about Joe. I went thru five years of HELL with my husband (alcohol) and when he sobered up, everyone had the attitude “well, good for him! Isn’t he wonderful for conquering his problem.” On on hand, I was thrilled because I had my wonderful husband back. BUT! I had a LOT of resentment, fear and ANGER for what I went thru. We never would have made it if I had continued to “keep strong”. I finally let it all out to family and friends and he supported me all the way. I hope Teresa will get the same from Joe. She’s earned it.

  • Marc

    Love you Teresa!!! Stay strong- prayers for you always!!! Show them how it’s done!! COMEBACK KID!!!! Screw the haters. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

  • michers

    Have fun everyone watching tonight !!!!Can’t wait to see how this goes and the new articles to come !!! Yeehaw ! Happy premier night 🙂

    • samael

      happy premiere night! so far…wow …first 13 minutes!

      • michers

        Yes . Sad . The dad is getting me right in the feels 🙁

        • samael

          yup ?

          Dull “the ghost from christmas past”…Danielle arrives ???

  • Anthony G.

    And Joe “didn’t make a mess of finances,” and the problem wasn’t bad choices in “trusting people.” Joe stole money; he forged documents; he stole a notary seal to steal property from his partner; he AND she filed totally false tax returns. And they forged false W2s.

    So these interviewers just sit there and swallow her lies and her BS and giggle so they can sell ads. Who’s the whore here? Hard to say.

  • Anthony G.

    Big question here: since Theresa can’t read or write in English, who wrote the book for her? I saw some excerpts and she couldn’t possibly have written it.

  • Khipp

    Buckle up people it’s almost time. YAY!!

  • michers

    I get people like her ,love her ,dislike her but guess what ? She’s human and has feelings . The little pick aparts and in betweens don’t matter in the grand scheme of things . She’s a mommy , wife , moving on. Just like everyone else gets to vent , bitch and express how they feel at one time , so does she . Great job Rox and congrats on scoring the interview 🙂

    • FelonsbyBravo

      She’s not like everyone else she committed Fraud for over 10 yrs. Thrown in Jail meanwhile 4 kids are stuck with this poor excuse for a mom. Unless You and your friends are into the whole fraud thing and you enjoy screwing your children up then I understand what your saying

      • michers

        Since I can’t block you for some odd reason , how’s about we ignore each other .? Thanks . Appreciate it if you could 🙂 or you can block me ? It’s totally fine .

        • luvs2ride

          I don’t think he/she can block you. Khipp said something about not being verified in disqus, I think?

          • Khipp

            But Luvs, as you said you can always collapse the comment. Works for me.

            • luvs2ride

              Me too.

          • michers

            Yep I think so but it seems as though that person is going to respect my request . Yay .

            • luvs2ride

              Yay is right!
              There seems to be a lot less “this comment is blocked” too.
              Nice to see.

              • michers

                Totes

        • FelonsbyBravo

          Fine by me

          • michers

            Thank you . I mean that civilly .

        • Khipp

          Mich, go all the way to the right of our screen and see the – line next to the person you don’t want to see. Click on it and their post will collapse and you won’t see it.

          • michers

            Yes!!! The problem is , it’s not long term like block capability lol. Meh. Maybe since I asked nicely that person will respect what I asked

          • Marcy Davis

            Thanks again Khipp xo

    • luvs2ride

      Great post, mich.

      • michers

        Thanks honey 🙂

    • MamaBear

      Yes nobody is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and (hopefully!) learns from them. I get how some ppl can be put off by her due to her lack of accountability but shes a strong gal..,gotta give her props for that ? Not many women can pick up the pieces like she did and carry on…

  • samael

    apparently Teresa will be “live” on TMZ in a few min. I will upload a link when she finishes!! Go Teresa! to check it out go to @tmz

    • samael

      only about 2 minutes and they tried to joke about prison time being the same as working with Danielle – Teresa called them out “why would you say that”..they asked the normal questions about divorce/Danielle/tonites premiere

      http://www.tmz.com/

    • Marcy Davis

      Best interview was on E! News: Daily Pop today. Asked same questions and more and Teresa answered them All. Amazing how she did, she’s a pro Now. Her Hair was to die for I like it straight

      • samael

        I didn’t see the E!News:Daily Pop today! I will check it out for sure! She is everywhere – apparently she was even on Dr.OZ! I noticed that M – did a few interviews as well. her hair..I really never know what to say..she has hair? sorry Marcy…that stuff zooms over my noggin ?

        • luvs2ride

          Whats up with her hair, sammy?

          • samael

            luvs

            Marcy was telling me about Teresa being on E!News..then Marcy said “Her Hair was to die for I like it straight” ..and for me..I really don’t know what that means..to me – Teresa has hair..so..I’m not sure what I’m missing..help please ?

            • luvs2ride

              Lol!! ???

              “Her hair was to die for” is another way of saying, “I love her hair!!”

              Marcy prefers when she wears her hair straight, instead of poofy & curly.

  • CsqD

    I’m assuming Tre was referring Jaq when she said someone refused to film Danielle. SO, hahahaha….did Jaq really think she was that important to RHONJ that Bravo would bow down to her threat?

    • Dave

      I think Jacqueline got delusions of grandeur because she was asked back for season 7, stirred up (rehashed) drama, and then sat next to Andy at the reunion. She thought she could dictate and that Bravo would never choose Danielle over her. Talk about deluded!

      • CsqD

        Well said, Dave! I’m so glad that delusional, cowardly, pig, Jaq, is off the show! With Jaq leaving she takes her annoying daughter with her! I do adore their boys, though.

      • michers

        I thought that too but I still just don’t understand how she got to come back after skipping reunion and spilling info on Twitter

        • luvs2ride

          Drama!!

      • luvs2ride

        I think you’re right, Dave.

      • Khipp

        Bingo!!

    • Mar

      Yes she did. lol She has a HUGE ego. I think she may have BPD. She needs to get that checked. She is not important and to me, she is fake and boring. I would not be surprise if she thinks she made Teresa because she begged her to be on the show with her.

      • CsqD

        I’m sure the shameless braggart, Jaq, takes all the credit for Tre’s reality TV career. Didn’t Jaq say recently that the only reason Melissa was friends with her was to keep her full-time HW job? I’m thinking she did. Jaq’s humongous ego will never admit that it is Tre who carries the show!

  • Marcy Davis

    Teresa said certain people I will never forgive and Melissa is not one of them. She said Jacqueline is one of them. I would never have done anything nor would I ever do anything as malicious as the things Jacqueline did to me. She manipulated and schemed behind the scenes, stirring the pot the whole time. She is a master at that. I gave her a lot of freaking chances, and in the end, the things she did were unforgivable.

    • michers

      Marci I tried blocking that person too and didn’t work . I can’t remember what Khipp said about that ? WTH are we supposed to do ? Grrrr

      • samael

        mich

        sorry to butt in..here is what khipp typed

        first comment:

        “Morning Marcy. ITS probably not signed into Disqus/verified, and using some other – I’m hiding – account.’

        Second comment:

        “Blocked can read/see you’re comments, you can’t read/see their’s. If you have a user blocked you shouldn’t be getting Disqus mail notifications. If you are go to your settings, email notifications, and adjust what you want to be informed about.

        I don’t get anything from the blocked trolls, or blocked posters I don’t find interesting”

        • michers

          Ugh . I tried a few things thought it was working then I get the red message like Marci mentioned . Luvs said to collapse it . Thanks Sammy 🙂

          • samael

            you’re welcome – good luck

            • Khipp

              If worse comes to worse you can click on the comment, then go to adblock and they will tell you how to rid the rat.

            • michers

              Thanks 🙂

      • luvs2ride

        Just click the box to the right of the name.
        It collapses the post.

        • michers

          But will all of their comments stay collapsed or everyday you have to do that ? This is crap . Yeah thanks Dickus .

        • michers

          Thanks Luvs 🙂

        • Khipp

          Ooops didn’t see ya there Luvs. You are correct.

      • Khipp

        Mich, my post above.

        • michers

          Got it thanks 🙂

    • samael

      Marcy!!

      thanks for all of that! kind of a wicked feeling that she confirms for us what we post here about how things affect her..with other cast members!! wow..and yes Jack Ass is unforgivable!

  • September24

    Thank you Rox! Would love to see Tre get her own show. Something 1/2 hour long. And no coattail riders! LOL!

  • Betty

    “No parents want to see their children fight” How about no parents want to see their kids turn to crime because they refuse to get an education and good job? She and Joe already sent 2 grandparents to an early grave due to stress and shame. It was apparent some of her kids don’t like the cameras to film. Teresa doesn’t care. Big pimpin’

  • rhfan

    I’m glad the season will show family sticking together. I’m surprised hearing about her and Siggy. Things that have been released certainly don’t give that impression. I’m looking fwd to the season.

    • Khipp

      rhfan, agree, me too about T and Siggy. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

      Tonight’s the night. YAY

      • Marcy Davis

        When I met Teresa one of things I told her was about Siggy blocking myself and two others. Teresa told me she was going to talk to Siggy and in less than 24hrs we were all unblocked by Siggy I can’t believe she remembered my name and the others. I got to replies from Siggy One was Qh I heard you met the queen Teresa the second one was Marcy if you ever need anything please let me know. I was freaking blown away.

        • luvs2ride

      • luvs2ride

        Maybe because Sig is friends with Kim D there’s some discord in the beginning?

        Tune in to find out!!

        • michers

          That’s what I don’t get ! She is a peacemaker blah blah but yet, is friends with Kim D knowing what she’s capable of and does to people ?!

          • luvs2ride

            She’s a fraud.
            Peace, Jacqueline & Kim D mix like oil and water.
            Everyone knows that.
            Siggy is the only one who believes ber own hype.

            • michers

              I think you’re right ! After all that has been said and done no one with good intentions could hang onto such toxicity at this point .

        • Khipp

          I just hope Sig learns to use her inside voice. She SCREAMS constantly.

      • Lea

        Yeah, hearing Siggy is the kindest, I’m like, ‘Ok I’ll give her another shot….’ ha

        • michers

          I think many a HW are kind in real life and the cameras just make it feisty lol

          • Khipp

            Hmmmmm….

  • Khipp

    Great exclusive Roxanne. Thanks. Always interesting to get the inside skinny. Well done.

  • samael

    Roxanne!!

    welcome back and awesome exclusive! Been out of control here.

    I like Teresa’s answers, her books cannot be taken as a full confessional, it is her perspective of what she went through and her children went through.

    I like that Teresa was clear about

    – only doing a spin off if it did not include her children
    – she never stated she would never work with Danielle
    – Knowing Teresa – she is full on real – that is going to be brutal watching her family
    deal with the passing of her and Joe’s mom.
    – wow, I don’t think anyone has asked Teresa about Jack Ass – good for you Roxy!

  • Amber

    I love Tre but I read the book last night and it still sounds like she doesn’t really like Melissa.

    • Srl83

      I read the book and I thought the same thing… hopefully the book doesn’t open up old wounds… that’s why it’s best to keep some things to self if it breaks the peace…

      • Lea

        Interesting to hear both your take on it.

        • Srl83

          Yea if U read the book u would kinda think that her and Melissa have problems… especially when she said something like joe doesn’t give a **** if Melissa visits him… I love Tre but I thought that was unnessesary.

          • Betty

            Why would Melissa even want to go to a prison to visit a felon. After all, she can always see him in a few years in ……Italy.

          • michers

            I think Joe made it clear over the years that he doesn’t give a poop and if you see him you do if not who cares ?! If all is good he’s good if not he doesn’t care …

            • luvs2ride

              Joe made it very clear how he felt about Melissa. She knows, and probably feels the same way about him.

              • michers

                Yessssss!!!! But some will take that , knowing that as we both mentioned and use that as some kind of ammo.

                • luvs2ride

                  No doubt

            • Srl83

              I get exactly what U are saying… it was just the way it was written

              • michers

                Ohhhhh !!! Tre getting a little tricky lol?!

                • Srl83

                  Yes she is lol… then there is a part about her birthday cake..it’s like funny and shady at the same time lol

                  • michers

                    Love it

          • Lea

            Hmmm, yeah, that sounds a little too candid…

    • michers

      Are you sure it’s not how she felt from the past ?

    • mar

      She probably never will. I think she tolerates her. Melissa seems to like her more than Tre does.

  • just me…

    I hate this bitch….?

    • Maisey ? ?

      Gee….why? What did she ever do wrong??
      ??

      • just me…

        …LOL…I think she is repulsive…

        • FelonsbyBravo

          I think TreTwat is a poor excuse for parent. Just Another reality star who’ll pimp the their kids out. Garbage Felon who will screw ANYONE over in a second..

      • Marcy Davis

        Teresa said It’s not that I don’t love Melissa it’s just easier to get along when we’re not working together.

        • just me…

          Just snark…I bet her kids say “It is not that I do not love my parents..it is just easier to get along when we are not working together.”

          • Betty

            Two of her kids have said they don’t like the cameras. Teresa doesn’t care. Smile for the cameras. Big Pimpin’

            • just me…

              and one of them is not paid for.

        • michers

          Oh I can imagine . Family then work together too? And it started off on a bad note !

    • Laurie

      Im sure she doesn’t give a shit about you, either. Thanks for playing.

      • just me…

        Oh that is fine…
