Teresa Giudice Calls RHONJ 'the Teresa Show' as She Confronts Her 'Stalker' Costar at Reunion
"You are on 'The Teresa Show,' " Teresa Giudice said on the season 9 reunion
Jackie Goldschneider made waves this season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey when she clapped back at Teresa Giudice‘s claims that women should be able to control their men by pointing out that Giudice’s husband was in jail.
So when part one of the season 9 reunion kicked off on Wednesday, it should come as no surprise that Goldschneider was Giudice’s top target — the Turning the Tables author calling her everything from a “stalker” to a “cold-hearted bitch.”
“You are on ‘The Teresa Show,’ ” Giudice quipped at Goldschneider, dubbing herself the star of RHONJ and alluding to former Housewives who had crossed her. “Anyone who goes against me, you see them here in this room anymore? No, they’re not here anymore.”
“I’m going to bring it bitch … ” Giudice said. “[So] come, come. I want you to come at me.”
For her part, Goldschneider wasn’t backing down. “You’re not going to win a war of words with me,” she said. “You have nothing. I’m up here and you’re down here. … I lose brain cells talking to you.”
“I don’t want to know you, Teresa. You’re not my kind of people,” Goldschneider said. “You live a very sad life. You have zero that I aspire to, Teresa.”
But Giudice wasn’t done. She quickly pulled up a photo of Goldschneider posing with Guidice at a book signing years ago, calling the Housewife — who joined the RHONJ this season — a “stalker.”
“You want to be me, thank you very much,” Giudice said. “That’s why you’ve been following me for 10 years. … You had an agenda!”
“She used to stand at my book signings. She’s been following the show. She knows everything,” Giudice told Cohen, mimicking words Goldschneider allegedly said when they first met. ” ‘I’m your biggest fan!’ She said, ‘I can’t believe I’m here, standing next to you and Melissa’ the first time she met me!”
Goldschneider, who had posted the photo of her and Giudice on her own Instagram page and allegedly showed it to Giuduce when they started filming together, didn’t feel insulted by Giudice’s attack.
“I’m a stalker? Because I ever came to see you ever again after that?” Goldschneider asked Giudice. “Define a stalker for me.”
“I didn’t used to stand at [her] book signings,” she explained to Cohen. “I was walking past a shoe store where there were about four people in line to get copies of Teresa’s book. I was a fan of the show and I wanted to meet Teresa. So I took the picture with the kids.”
Then, Goldschneider called Giudice the ‘B’ word: bully.
“She’s clearly very threatened by me,” the mother of four said. “I think she likes to bully people. I think she tries to scare people. As she alluded to throughout the years of the show, ‘Talk to me like that, you don’t come back.’ I think there’s people on Team Teresa and they’re just going to do whatever they have to do and whatever they have to say to make Teresa happy. And badmouthing me makes Teresa happy.”
The insults continued, Giudice claiming that Goldschneider wasn’t compassionate over her husband’s jail time and deportation. “My husband’s not here, you cold-hearted bitch,” said Giudice.
Eventually, Melissa Gorga — Giudice’s sister-in-law and Goldschneider’s friend — chimed in, standing up for Goldschneider by telling Giudice that she felt threatened because she can’t “think and reason rationally.”
That only angered Giudice more. “I’m not going to even talk to her anymore,” she said of Gorga. “Don’t talk to me. Don’t f—ing talk to me.”
Gorga was happy about it. “Beautiful, thank you Jesus!” she said, slamming Giudice. “How she’s treating her family? You’re losing your mind! … You want family, you treat me with respect or you get no family.”
The episode ended with Giudice losing her tempter and grabbing the question cards from host Andy Cohen‘s hand. Hold on to your tables.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion continues Wednesday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
