Shutting down the rumor mill!
Teresa Giudice denies claims that she gave Bravo an ultimatum over her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga’s role on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The OG Jersey Housewife addressed the rumor on the September 28 episode of her Namaste B$tches podcast.
“That’s not true,” Teresa insisted. “I’m not that person. I would never be demanding anything because if you act that cocky, Bravo’s gonna tell you, ‘Go take a hike.’”
Teresa noted that she’s “very professional” and would never threaten to quit the show unless someone was fired.
“Ask all Bravo executives. I’m very professional. I’m not a diva. I’m a hard worker. I don’t act cocky. I know I’m the OG, but I don’t act that way. I’m very humble. I’m very down to earth,” she explained.
As we previously reported, a source close to the RHONJ cast told Life and Style Magazine that Teresa gave Bravo an ultimatum when it comes to Melissa’s role within the franchise after filming wrapped for season 13.
“It’s a pretty ballsy move on Teresa’s part, but she’s had it with Melissa and her brother Joe,” the insider claimed in September. “She’s the OG of New Jersey, and season after season, she still delivers the goods.”
“While there’s no telling if Bravo will cave into Teresa’s demand, there’s also no denying that Melissa’s star had been fading. Teresa has the upper hand here, and she’s flexing her muscle,” the source continued.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return for season 13 in early 2023.
