Is Andy Cohen Feuding With Teresa Giudice?


Some of you might have noticed that Teresa Giudice was schedule to appear on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night, but instead Bravo replaced Giudice with Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. It has been reported that Teresa felt extremely betrayed by Andy Cohen’s comments about her legal sentence during a show last week with Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper.

A caller asked Kelly Ripa how she felt about the Giudices airing their legal issues to get sympathy to avoid jail time.

“They didn’t get out of jail to be on the Housewives of New Jersey,” Cohen stated. “They’ll do whatever time they do.”

Anderson Cooper asks, “Isn’t she going to jail?”

“No that have been sentenced yet,” Andy replies. “I think her question is are we making sympathy for them.”

“When I look at her little girl, of course, you cannot help but have your heart ripped out of your chest,” Kelly Ripa said. “Having said that, I think we have a legal process for a reason. I don’t think that judges are persuaded by what’s happening on television… I don’t think there’s a judge sitting over this trial that’s going to say, ‘Oh last night on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ I really don’t think that will impact it.”

Cohen continues, “This is a woman we’ve followed since the beginning of the show and this is something that she has now plead guilty on and we’re now still following them and we are seeing what life is like after. It’s a continuation of seeing what’s going on in the lives [sic] of this person and one or both of them will be going…”

RadarOnline reports that days later, on Thursday night, Giudice was overheard sobbing on the phone about the remarks during a promotional event for her Fabellini wine in New York City.

“She [Teresa] just would prefer that Andy not make any comments about the sentencing, because she doesn’t want to do anything that could impact what the punishment will be,” an insider tells the site. “It’s one thing for the legal proceedings to play out on the show, but Andy isn’t a lawyer, and shouldn’t discuss things he knows nothing about.”

Despite his comments on the show, Giudice said she “will honor her commitment to appear on Andy’s show Sunday night,” the source confirmed. “No one can ever say that Teresa isn’t professional​. She hopes not to discuss the sentencing, and instead focus on the show, and other projects and charities she is supporting.”

But then, Teresa’s appearance on WWHL was cancelled.

“Teresa was notified by Bravo on Friday that her appearance on Sunday’s show was being canceled,” a Bravo insider tells RadarOnline. “No official reason was given, but the network has been upset with Teresa for not doing as many promotional appearances for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.“

Andy’s comments “pushed Teresa over the edge,” the insider says. “She felt so betrayed by Andy.”

“For someone who has claimed to be one of Teresa’s best friends, Andy has turned his back on her,” the insider concludes.

When confronted on Twitter, Cohen insists he has not been insensitive to Teresa and Joe’s legal situation. “I’m not being cruel I don’t understand what you are asking me. Teresa is v open abt what she’s going through,” a seemingly confused Andy responded to one of Teresa’s fans.

When another fan tweeted Andy and said he was looking forward to Giudice’s appearance on the show, he responded, “GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT!”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Eek I think Andy was a little to relaxed and didn’t have his monologue prepared of politically correct words

    • Andy said nothing about teresa that we all don’t know this show has run its course it’s time 4 her 2 get off TV and spend time with family she’s Laughable anymore!!!!!!

  • Kim from Jersey

    No matter what anyone said Teresa fans would pick it apart.

  • Ann

    I have yet to see it. But there are many times that I just can’t stand Andy.

  • New Jersey Grows Great Peaches

    First, I want to compliment this site owner on the new look. Great job!

    Second, I do not believe for a moment that Andy has any specific agenda against Teresa. He may not be as fond of her as he is of others, and that’s natural. We tend to gravitate to some folks more strongly than we do others.

    Third, this Radaronline is rife with speculation, fabrication and obfuscation. I can call them up, tell them that Teresa had a meltdown because the new little family dog pooped all over the living room rug, and they would print it in 10 minutes after I hang up the phone.

      Thank you so much! Glad you like it 🙂

    It is exceedingly ridiculous of Teresa to live her life on television and Twitter, to be in a high profile prosecution, and expect people NOT to talk about it. You put yourself in this position Teresa…you have no one to blame but yourself. I don’t think Andy, shady as he often is, said anything particularly offensive about the case.

    If this wasn’t so stupid, it would be funny! I think Bravo should never have renewed a contract. She and Joe are lying, thieving felons! Andy didn’t do anything wrong and for this entitled, pompous, arrogant woman to say he did, only shows how she’s using them the way she does everyone else! You broke the law, go to jail and shut up!

      Well said

    • Janie I totally agree with u 100% she needs 2 go off TV

  • VaNonna

    Bravo is paying her 700K, but no one should discuss their legal problems? Please………. they shouldn’t even be on the show. I have no sympathy for the crimes they’ve committed. Yet they file bankruptcy, still live in the house and haven’t had to pay the people they’ve swindled.

    • Debred

      So agree with this comment. Teresa needs to understand that no matter the length of her sentence she is still a criminal.

  • Monica

    Here’s the part where Tre bites the only hand left that’s feeding her and fades into obscurity. I’ve enjoyed watching her sad demise but now she’s just too irrelevant to care about.

  • js

    Andy never has talked about the Lauritas 55 million dollar bankruptcy; the Gorgas fraudulent construction loan used to build their “dream home”, Al Manzos scandal w / Governor Christy but goes on day & night about Teresa”s problems since season 3. So tired of all the bashing.
    Atlanta housewives have had bankruptcy & money problems NY & OC too…..but Andy only loves to bash Teresa.

    • Lisa

      I think that’s because she acts like an entitled jackass. She flaunted her faux wealth (with other people’s money). She has not taken one iota of responsibility. She is selfish, crude, classless, and stupid. Oh, and she pleaded guilty.

    • Ellen Runge

      I completely disagree with you on the fact that Andy ONLY talks about Theresa’a problem. First of all if Theresa did not want to talk about it, then she should not bring it up on the show. She and her husband have talked about it on the show themselves. It is all over the news. If you want to stay private then why the hell are you on a TV show??? Andy has talked about other problems that other “housewives” have had. This was a question brought to him. He did not initiated any of it. Theresa and Joe got themselves into this mess and will have to pay the price. Not true that Andy bashes Theresa.

    If these were poor people they would already be in jail. They should have learned a lesson a few years ago when they got through that BK mess. I also feel for their kids. I do agree with the comment Caroline made before, that Joe is trying to provide that lifestyle for Teresa’s sake. He would be happy making pizzas living above the store as long as they are together. She was neve r satisfied.
