We know things have been tense between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice ever since Caroline confronted Teresa about the insults in her cookbook on the season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but now Caroline has gone so far as to say that she isn’t even speaking with her former friend!

During an interview with Access Hollywood Live on July 10, Caroline revealed, “I speak to everybody but Teresa.”

However, don’t expect Caroline to flip a table or have a complete meltdown when she encounters Teresa at the Season 5 reunion taping next month. “I’ll be cordial,” mama Manzo maintained. 

As for the potentially explosive reunion, Caroline says that she’s readying herself for the worst — “I’m getting my hazmat gear ready” — but hopes things won’t get too out of control.

“It’s going to be interesting,” she added with a smile.

Are you excited for the Season 5 Reunion?
