On the June 10 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, many of the housewives were shocked when a magazine cover story featuring Teresa Giudice came out and painted a less than flattering picture of some of her costars.
In her new BravoTV.com blog, Teresa Giudice clears the air about her relationships with tabloids, and how they often twist her words.
According to Teresa, while she has appeared on the cover of some 25 magazines, her fellow h’wives have just not received the same level of exposure.
She writes, “The truth is Jacqueline and Caroline aren't on the covers of magazines every week presumably because it wouldn't make the magazine sell. They aren't missing from the magazines because they take some high road and say no.They aren't wanted.”
“I'm not saying being wanted is better or somehow desirable because in most cases it isn't, but to say that I have any control over it is false. And they know it,” she continues.
Teresa also insists that she never said anything bad about her cousin Kathy Wakile, although she did mention that Kathy’s husband Rich used to criticize her frequent trips to the mall. “So what?” she says.
“As far as the other ladies, their quotes are from THEM, not me. Those are the things they said themselves on the show. If a writer wants to label them as 'insults,' what can I do? Nothing,” she continues.
T also claims that the other housewives know the stories don’t come directly from her and are often manipulated, yet they still chose to act shocked when a magazine featuring Teresa was shown on a recent episode.
“What's crazy is that Caroline acts like it is from me. As if I'm some master magazine publisher who puts these stories out. I don't put them out. They go out with or without me. And Caroline, Jacqueline, Melissa, Kathy and their husbands KNOW THIS.”
