Teresa Giudice Says She’s Changed: “Old Table-Flipping Teresa Is Long Gone”
Teresa Giudice. New Jersey housewife. Soon-to-be business owner. Possible convict. And newly reformed saint? We’re not so sure about that last one, but the Real Housewives of New Jersey star says she’s proud of how much she’s changed in her latest blog on Bravo’s website. In fact, the controversial star says the “old table-flipping Teresa is long gone.” Say it ain’t so — that actually made for some great TV!
“I've learned a lot by watching myself on television, and I hope I've changed for the better. We're all works in progress and we'll all keep growing,” Teresa writes in her blog.
That didn’t keep her from making a couple digs at Caroline, writing
She was trying to put out that she was this happy, changed person, but didn't embrace it as much as she pretended to, she didn't even go up on the high wire. So I pointed that out. It wasn't the nicest thing to do, but I was upset. I knew she would read it and not be happy because she's Caroline Manzo! It's this crazy, unwritten rule: no one is supposed to ever point out anything about her or her life. She can only talk about ours. It wasn't a big deal, it was just a little shade in return for her lying about me. Not very mature I know, and I'm sorry for it,” she wrote.
Teresa also wrote about how she wishes people wouldn’t always talk all over each other at the reunion shows, such as when they were all weighing in on the fight with Caroline. We have to agree. In fact, Dr. V’s commentary was downright annoying.
Teresa let everyone in on a little Real Housewives casting secret, too. As she explained in her blog, the show will many times cast people if they offer to bash someone who is already on the show, which was what Penny was apparently trying to do with Melissa.
“If you can get cast, God bless you. Just please don't do it by bashing my family. Be fabulous and interesting and have a great life that people want to watch and I'm sure Bravo will call you!” Teresa writes.
Overall, the theme of Teresa’s post seemed to be that she is proud of how much she has changed and grown on the show.
“I'm never going to get to that ugly place with anyone again. I just won't allow it. I won't allow anyone to drag me in,” she writes towards the end.
Again, we’re proud of her maturity, but will this make for good reality TV? Only time will tell.
