Exclusive: Teresa Giudice Talks All Things RHONJ

I had the pleasure of interviewing Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. I asked the Bravo star everything about the new season of the show, how her family is doing and more. Teresa shares how her husband Joe reacted to her new memoir; Standing Strong, reveals whether or not she’s talked to Jacqueline Laurita, shares her thoughts on Danielle Staub’s return, Kim D and more.

Has Joe reacted to you being so honest and open about everything in your new book; Standing Strong?
Teresa Giudice: “Because the book has only been out for about a week, Joe hasn’t seen it yet. Everything I have said in the book, I have said to him. So I don’t think any of it will come as a surprise to him. That being said, Joe and I are in a very good place and I look forward to him coming home.”

I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. How is your father doing? Is he living with you?
TG: “My father is really having a tough time ever since my mother passed away. His heart is broken. Him and my mother were inseparable. He lives with me now and I think him being around my daughters is really helping him. He is surrounded by love.”

After reading your book, a lot of fans want to know if you currently have a relationship with Joe’s mom/family?
TG: “Joe’s family is my family. We are all one family. I love them all very much.”

Has Jacqueline Laurita tried to contact you? If she did, what would you say to her?
TG: “I have had no contact with Jacqueline and I am fine with that. I’m sure she is as well. Sometimes relationships run their course and ours did.”

I’m sure Danielle Staub’s return shook things up this season. Like you said in your blog, she can be unpredictable. Is it true you have problems with Siggy and Dolores because of Danielle?
TG: “You’re going to have to watch the show to see how things shake out. It is a very interesting season with lots of twists and turns.”

How did Kim D go from posting photos of your kids on Instagram to the explosive fight we see in the trailer?
TG: “That is something you’d have to ask her.”

How are your girls doing since Joe’s been gone?
TG: “My girls are doing ok. They have been through a lot, but they are strong. They miss their father and can’t wait for him to come home. We are all looking forward to being reunited as a family.”

What do you want viewers to know about this season of RHONJ?
TG: “I think this is a season that is going to surprise people. A lot of stuff happens that you don’t see coming, it just happens. I have to say it is one of our better casts and seasons and I think the viewers are going to be happy.”

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.

    Great interview, Nicki! I’m so glad you finally got the chance to interview Tre. You did such a good job. ❤️

    It’s so refreshing to read a story about Tre that isn’t a hit-piece. I’ve said all along that Tre was never completely innocent, but she did her time accordingly and it’s time to move on.

    So her book is a publicity stunt.

    I wish you would have asked if Melissa’s email to Danielle gets brought up.
