Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice came under fire this week for her comments about actress Sofia Vergara.
Teresa criticized Sofia for acting superior and like she was too good to take a picture with a reality TV star.
However, got in a bit of hot water when she called Sofia an “immigrant” and talked about her “accent.”
“I never asked for a picture because I’m so not like that, I don’t care. She didn’t want to take a picture with me … Ugh, I can’t stand her, sorry. I hate to say that because I’m Italian, she’s Colombian, she has an accent — she has more of an accent than me! You would think she would be nice, like she’s an immigrant — no, I’m just saying, she should be nice,” the Standing Strong author said.
Adding, “And I didn’t even do anything, I swear to God. And I’m so mad at myself because I wanted to say, ‘Bitch, I don’t want to take a picture with you!’ This is what she said to her publicist: ‘Why you make-a me take a picture with that woman?’ Just like that. Priscilla [DiStasio, Giudice’s makeup artist] heard it, and Priscilla was like, ‘I can’t believe that bitch said that. I can’t stand her!’”
Despite the blowback and criticism for her comments about Sofia, Teresa is standing behind her statement.
Teresa even defended herself on Instagram telling fans, “I don’t care at all that she doesn’t know who I am it was her pure dismissal of me as a person. Not who I am, that had nothing to do with anything. I am still a human being just like the rest of you.”
