Is The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice — who’s been having familial, personal and relationship tensions seemingly from every which way — now also isolating herself from her friends outside of the show? One source claims she sure is.

According to Reality Tea, a source now states that Teresa’s fame has led to her isolation from her other friends. “There were some people who were ‘real’ friends of Teresa’s, who would ask her how she was and she would always say ‘everything is fine,’” when it was clearly not.

Jacq[ueline Laurita] was one of them. She really loved Teresa and cared for her well-being … Teresa was never honest with Jacqueline. Teresa would sell all these horrible stories, the local newspapers were reporting on every move they made, and everyone was talking about them … Who wants to be friends with people who lie to them? Teresa is all about image.”

The source also expects a big change to come Teresa’s way in the near future, if and when hubby Joe Giudice faces some potentially major jail time.

“That is going to be beyond a wake up call for her … [She’ll] ‘need’ the support of real friends but she would rather protect her image than her own mental state and her children,” the source predicts.

Ruh roh. As if Teresa needs one more complication in her life!
