Gone are the days when the snide comments and downright nasty insults were reserved for people actually starring on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

On the June 16 episode of the hit Bravo show, Jacqueline Laurita met her co-stars Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile for a workout, and one of Teresa Giudice’s friends — trainer Linda Berger — said very nasty things about Jac behind her back.

In a phone call to Teresa to report that the gals were at her gym, Linda mocked Jacqueline’s “fat ass” and called her out for not going to the gym for several months. The remarks obviously caught Jacqueline by surprise, and she even wrote a portion of her latest Bravo blog specifically for Linda.

Linda, so sorry my ‘ass’ isn't to your liking, (Chris loves it), but I've been kinda busy the last few months doing research and trying to recover my child, raising Autism awareness, starting a new business, keeping up with my house, while still focusing on my family and friends,” she begins, before concluding that Linda could use a serious attitude adjustment. “You may be strong, but you're obviously not strong enough to be your own person. Fall back, soldier! Try working on your heart muscle. It will make you much more appealing.”

So just who is this “trainer?”

According to RadarOnline, Linda is a “Teresa Soldier.” Described as the “perfect puppet” for Teresa, Linda is a divorced mother of two sons, who also lives in New Jersey.
