Teresa Giudice has a love-hate relationship with the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
While RHONJ made Teresa famous it also created a lot of drama and turmoil in personal life.
Kim asked Teresa if she “[loves] doing ‘Housewives.'”
Surprisingly, Teresa said “No” explaining, “I mean, I guess you can’t really ask me that because it’s been not the greatest for me.”
Kim, who’s also had plenty of trouble with reality TV laughed at Teresa’s response and admitted that “RHOA” had been “horrible” for her too.
“I don’t find that it’s stressful anymore,” Teresa added. “It was stressful when my family was on there, and that was disgusting because that’s not what my family’s about. I just hate … being in the public eye, obviously, you’re made an example of, and that’s the part I feel like is not fair. I wish I was treated like everyone else.”
Kroy Biermann, Kim’s former professional athlete hubby, then jumped in and asked Teresa if she had “long-term goals” for her time on RHONJ.
“No, I’m never answering that question ever again,” she replied. “I remember being asked that when I first started ‘Housewives.’ I would’ve never pictured myself to go to jail and look what happened. I’m just living day by day and whatever my journey’s supposed to be, it’s gonna be.”
Kroy then asked: “Season 10 — if they ask, are you gonna be on it?”
“Yeah, honey, I’m not walking away now! I made this show what it is,” Teresa responded. “They got me ’til the end. And unfortunately, people are like, ‘Why do you do it?’ Because this is my job. This is how I put food on the table for my four daughters, so I can’t walk away from it now. This is how I provide for my family.”
“Let’s be real if Kroy didn’t sign that $15 million deal, I probably wouldn’t have walked away either,” Kim confessed.
“If my husband signed that kind of deal, I wouldn’t be doing ‘Housewives’ either,” Teresa admitted, “Trust me!”
Kim also asked Teresa about her sometimes rocky relationship with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
“I would never let it get to where it was before,” Teresa explained. “That was just like a whole jealousy thing. I was on TV. They thought I was trying to keep them away from the cameras, which I was not trying to keep them away from the cameras. It was about me and my family. I never thought fame and money would ruin my family, and it did, it did for a little while.”
“It’ll never go back to what it was,” she assured. “If I have something to say, if she has something to say, we both say it to each other, and then we move past it.”
As for husband Joe Giudice, Teresa said her’s lost a ton of weight and is “down to 165.”
“No alcohol, he works out all the time, he’s gotten so lean and fit. He looks really good,” she said
Not surprisingly Teresa avoided any discussion about Joe’s pending deportation.
