The feud that NEVER ends!
Teresa Giudice claps back at Caroline Manzo after saying she wants to return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey to “knock the s–t out of [Teresa].”
The mom of four accuses her former friend of using her name for “clout” while insisting that Caroline is all bark and no bite.
“She didn’t knock the s*** out of me the entire time she was on the show, that’s why I’m still there and she’s not,” Teresa tells TMZ, adding: “She’s promoting her son’s podcast so she talks about me because otherwise, no one is paying attention.”
Teresa noted that Caroline was totally cool with her when they filmed a Superbowl commercial together in 2020.
“In person, she was hugging me. On her son’s podcast, she wants to fight me,” she quipped.
This response from Teresa comes days after Caroline went on her son Albie Manzo’s Dear Albie podcast and said she wanted to return to RHONJ to take down Teresa.
The drama started when Albie read a letter from a Bravo fan asking Caroline if she would ever “come back to straighten out Teresa once and for all.”
“I’m just gonna put it out there ’cause I just don’t give a f–k, alright? You know what? I would get great pleasure, fans, community, to go in and just knock the s–t out of [Teresa] verbally and just put her in her place,” Caroline replied.
“I am tired. I am tired of certain things. I am tired of her opening her very uneducated mouth and using me as a weapon to say that I was the one that spearheaded her IRS claim and stuff like that. We are not those people,” she continued. “Sometimes, you gotta smack the bully. I am more than happy to go smack the bully.”
So, what is stopping Caroline from returning to RHONJ? According to Caroline, the network can’t afford to pay her what she believes she’s worth.
“Bravo doesn’t wanna pay me,” she alleged. “So guess what, Bravo? You don’t get this for free. You don’t get the dame for free, Bravo. They are paying Teresa, I’m sure, an exorbitant amount of money.”
RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
