Teresa Giudice is reportedly furious at her former friend, Jacqueline Laurita, for dragging her 10-year-old daughter Gia into all of their petty drama.
On the May 20 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Gia had a bit of a hissy fit at Jacqueline’s field day when the opposing team cheated their way to victory. Jacqueline tried to make Gia feel better by reading her a book about being a good sport, but Gia was having none of it.
While Jacqueline acknowledged in her blog that reading the book may have been a bit out of line, she also pointed out that sore loser Gia was being “extremely rude” to her and Caroline Manzo.
Still, Teresa is “furious” about the comments Jacqueline made insinuating that Gia was an out-of-control tween.
A source close to Teresa tells RadarOnline, “She [Teresa] is furious that Jacqueline has dragged Gia into this nasty fight and is especially pissed that Jacqueline’s Twitter followers are viciously attacking her little girl.”
To be fair, Jacqueline was only criticizing Teresa’s parenting in the first place because Teresa told the RHoNJ cameras that she felt bad for Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashlee Holmes, because she had Jacqueline as a mother. Ouch!
Yet, the haterade from Jacqueline’s followers apparently got so bad that a monitor of Gia’s Twitter page was forced to tweet, “Ppl taking time to bash a child on the internet need to step back and re-evaluate their lives & own human decency before judging and acting.”
While Teresa is used to being the target of drama and unflattering gossip, she draws the line when people start to attack her kids.
“Teresa doesn’t care if people attack her all they want but they crossed the line when they attack her daughter. She’s only 10 years old! She doesn’t want her daughter to be thrown into this mix,” the source continues.
We don’t think Jacqueline meant to start anything when she blogged about Gia’s poor behavior on field day, but it’s safe to say that all children of the housewives are best left out of their moms’ drama!
