Teresa Giudice Accuses Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo of Calling the IRS


Part one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion aired Sunday night on Bravo and the accusations started flying right out of the gate. Of course, there was a lot to say between Teresa Giudice and former friend Jacqueline Laurita.

Dolores Catania revealed she used to be friends with Dina Manzo, but believes that was ruined because she remains good friends with Caroline, who she was just grocery shopping with the other day. Teresa added that she is still great friends with Dina and that Dina just flew in from California for Audriana’s birthday party a couple weeks ago.

Jacqueline and Teresa start flinging insults right away, but Siggy jumps in and shares, “Jacqueline is a heart of gold, her delivery is horrible, her intentions are good.”

When Teresa’s new Lexus is brought into question, Andy asks Teresa if she understands why that looks bad to the public and asks Giudice if she would ever drive a Ford. She asks Andy if he would and when he said yes, if he owed a lot of money. Teresa shrugged off the question and said the lease payments on a Lexus “aren’t that expensive.”

Danielle Staub, wrote Andy to ask Teresa if she’d ever apologize for making her look bad in front of her daughters on TV now that she’s in a position to have to explain herself to her daughters for making a mistake. Teresa didn’t see the connection, but Andy explained it to her, so now we know how the two rekindled their friendship.

But Teresa told Andy that she would love for Danielle to return to the show. “I would love for her to come back,” she told Andy.

This confused Laurita, who asked Teresa why. “I want her to come back to attack you,” Teresa told Jac.

Jacqueline talked about her grandson, Cameron, being born and Teresa and Melissa were scolded for having a side conversation about Jac’s daughter Ashlee. Apparently, Ashlee had been tweeting about them trying to defend her mother over comments Teresa had made about her mother’s appearance on the show.

“Your daughter needs to learn respect,” Giudice said. “Did you yell at her when she put those pictures up?”

“Your daughter needs to learn respect Teresa because she tweeted me,” Laurita fired back, referring to tweets that Gia had posted about her.

“My daughter is an amazing, beautiful mother,” Laurita said of the attacks on Ashlee’s parenting. “It’s her sense of humor. [I thought it was funny], I’m not going to lie.”

Joe Gorga joined the women and Andy told him he rewound a scene just to stare at Joe’s manhood. He also asked Joe about the sexist comments he made about his wife working this season. Oh… and Joe apparently lost his virginity when he was 9- years old, and Teresa walked in on it.

“I became a man at 9 years old,” Joe said. “That’s what we do, it made me a man.”

“I always threatened him with that,” Teresa admitted. “That was my upper hand. ‘I’ll tell mommy and daddy what you did.’ And then he would listen to whatever I said.”

In another turn of events, Teresa claimed Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo were behind the government’s investigation into her family’s finances… the case that sent both Teresa and her husband Joe to jail.

“You set me up,” she told Laurita. “In my gut it was you, or you and Caroline. You guys were behind everything… calling the government. You were in cahoots. You are gross, and that’s why you set me up.”

Jacqueline was shocked. “What? Oh my God!” she said. “You think I called the government on you? Are you kidding? Do you seriously think I called the government on you? That is not true.”

“I’m so glad I got that off my chest,” Giudice said. “I believe that, I believe it in my gut. I feel it in my gut.”

“No wonder you’re so angry,” Jacqueline said.

This had Siggy, Dolores, and Andy absolutely shocked… where the conclusion will play out in part two of the reunion which airs next week.

What did you think of the reunion? Do you believe Jacqueline set Teresa up?

  1. My opinion, I think possibly Dina confirmed Teresa’s suspicions about Jack and Caroline when she came out a little while before the reunion. I think Teresa isn’t trying to throw her name too much into it, but that’s what I believe.
    I honestly don’t know why Soggy or Dolores are even there besides cosigning and enabling crazy ass jack. That’s all they did this whole season. The fact I have to see Chris’s pulled face next episode already annoys me. Chris, the conductor of the crazy train.

    1. I agree with Tre, I’m not saying it was their fault they ended up in prison but how else has Jac and Chris got away with their problems for so many years.
      I also refuse to argue with any one here about this it’s my opinion end of! (And yours of course) xoxoxoxo

    2. You went to jail because she did commit the crimes, I hope you see this, Teresa is just mad she got caught she did that to hetself flaunting all that money around on tv.

      1. Finally. Someone has seen the light. There would be nothing to dig, if they did, if Teresa hadn’t buried it in the first place. I suppose it was Jackie and Carolyn behind Bernie Madoff getting busted, also. It’s all somebody’s fault but the perpetrator’s.

      2. That’s not my issue. My issue is someone crying about sincerity and being genuine when you had a relationship with me just to tattle and cover your own ass. They did the crime and now they must pay for it, but Jack’s whole storyline has been Teresa and how sincere their friendship is.

        1. Teresa isn;t the one who hits below the belt, until she is pushed. Jaq starts with that. And I do believe Jaq, Chris and Caro did turn them in, but if there wouldn’t have been anything to find, they would have not been convicted.
          The Correctional Facilities are just that, or used to be. To CORRECT. Neither Teresa or Jo will likely ever commit another crime, so mission accomplished.

  2. she has to lay in the bed she made for herself. No one has to call the IRS. It’s called not paying your taxes and get punished. Enough said. They are just waiting to cash in on joes early release.

  3. When T and J failed to file federal income tax you can bet the IRS started digging into other financial areas of their lives. It didn’t help that on the first season when T went furniture shopping to decorate her new home she paid cash for everything she purchased. A considerable amount of cash at that. T and J hung themselves without the help of anyone. Be grateful you’re not still in “camp” T.

  4. 1. you can’t go on tv, have a sketchy, if any at all, job, throw cash around, live in a mcmansion, drive expensive cars and not expect people to
    a) question
    b) if you piss them off, they will report
    c) not be able to explain where the $ came from

    They dug their own grave. They paid and are paying the price. However, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone in that messed up group reported them. Chris is JUST as shady as Joe so it’s just a matter of time before they get theirs. This guy has NEVER had a real job.

    Honestly, they all bug me.

  5. OMG for Teresa to say that it shows she still thinks her and hubby did nothing WRONG! They broke the law live with it stop blaming everyone else! You did the crime now pay the time! Stop blaming jack and Caroline! Blame yourself!!!

  6. I doubt anyone from rhonj has the clout or connections within the Federal government to affect anyone else. They just aren’t that important. Jac and Chris will get their comeuppance in due time, just as Tre and Joe did. Justice rides a slow horse.

  7. I believe she sold out her friend to the press for money. Her and her husband traded information about Tres family for lesser charges. I cannot stand the smug looking faces and poses Jac is making at this reunion. When a clip of Melissa and Teressa is playing you can see the jealousy on Jacs face.

  8. Teresa did her time, and paid the money back. She said she believed that Jaq and Chris are the one’s who alerted the feds to the situation. And I believe that’s true.
    But, on another note, since there will never be agreement from the opposing sides of that, Jaqueline enjoys breaking up Melissa and Teresa. Teresa fell right in when Jaq brought up the stupid sprinkle cookies. Just like bringing up things from 4 YEARS ago, now its 7 years. If I had to pull the weight of every bad decision I have made for 7 years, well, talk about “Ball and Chain”
    At the time of “stippergate” when Kim D. brought Teresa to a solon for hair and make-up, Teresa mentioned at the moment that it was odd that Kim wanted to go somewhere besides her house. When that jerk bald guy said the stuff about Melissa, Teresa left the room more than once, and Kim kept prodding him and asking questions. The relationship between those 2 ( Teresa and Melissa ) was so tenuous at the time I could “feel” it. Anything she would have done would have been suspect. ANYTHING. Whether Jaq had anything to do with it or not, she made it worse, as she has always done, and will continue to do. Anything she can do to cause turmoil, she gets a lot of satisfaction from. Why would a person bring up sprinkle cookies during a total of 82 minutes of airtime, from SEVEN years ago if not to do exactly what she succeeded in, causing a flurry of bad feelings? I do wish Teresa and Melissa both would look at each other and say NOTHING. Don’t react at all, it is difficult for most people to do, but they should know by now what Jaqueline is up to. The minute she gets the chance, and there is a tiny crack in her “friendship” with Teresa, she goes for the most pain she can cause. After so many times, why would anyone trust her again. Teresa finally outed a little bit of money talk about Jaq, and wow, that hit a nerve.
    Jaqueline and Chris have committed as many if not more crimes that Teresa and Joe did. Jaq brings up how many counts of fraud as many times as she can in the time she has, because she knows it hurts. She’s simply not a nice person. Siggy is wrong when she says Jaq’s intentions are good.

  9. One cannot just call the Feds and report wrongdoing. You HAVE to have many documents to prove it. The thing that exposed ALL their crimes is the phony 13 million dollar bankruptcy. Everything was investigated including banks named in the BK.

  10. Okay first of all did any of you actually read the indictments that Teresa and Joe confessed too, not only did they not pay their taxes they took out million dollar loans every year for years and lied about everything on the loan applications. She lied about her job status for years and wants to blame her husband for that. She does not take responsibility for anything and they have not paid back much of what they stolen. I feel sorry for the people who lost their jobs because of these two con artist.

  11. Wait Theresa always said she knew nothing so if Theresa knew nothing about all the fraud how would Jacqueline or Caroline know anything to report. It doesn’t make sense. & besides Caroline & Jacqueline didn’t make Theresa & joe not claim all their assets, not file tax returns or commit mortgage fraud. They did that all by themselves! Besides does it matter how the Feds found out? If the Guidices hadn’t broken any laws there would have been nothing to find. Maybe they should learn the word integrity

  12. I read the indictments. She paid the money back, a when more money comes owing, she pays that. Correctional facilities are just that, to CORRECT. Neither one of them will ever commit another crime. IMO. I do wonder if anything will ever be enough? And I think not, there has to be someone to show as an example that the public is sure everyone recognizes. stay on your feet, girl. You know better than to get on your knees, they will kick you into the ground in revenge.
    I will move on to a current horror to worry about.

  13. All the above enablers…stop giving Teresible grounds to blame any one else but her and her husband, Joegotcaught, for their prision terms….she has not learned her lesson if she cannot except her part in putting her family in this situation…she cannot set a good example for her daughters if she does not stop the blame game; all that does is leave room for trying to out smart the IRS and other laws (remember Joegotcaught with false driver’s license”)…she did not understand being low-key in car choices, and when given a chance to understand, again her wanting to have a certain financial level/standard was more important than common sense…what is going to happen when Joegotcaught is deported (he broke few federal laws that is ground for deportation) who are they going to blame???? It looks like Bravo may bring Danielle back to replace Teresible….I feel bad for her girls….really bad…..However, they are young enough to bounce back in beautiful Italy…

  14. Jac and Chris are criminals too! They may not have filed personal bankruptcy but milked comapies for millions for personal use and then claimed bankruptcy for the business! THey have been reveling in Teresas misfortune along with Ritchie, Kathy, Rosie and the Manzo clan!

  15. It really no longer matters what Teresa “feels” about her crimes. Why should anyone care what she feels about it? If anyone doesn’t want to hear her side, zip it. It’s soooooooooooo old and it’s been talked to d**th. Maybe we could celebrate the new President? Yay. Nov. 8th is always a historic day, no matter which candidate wins the office.

  16. I won’t write volumes. Suffice it to say that 13 million dollars will never be paid back, and criminals win in this case…”reformed” in “camp” or not.
    Oh, and if they are all (the accused by Tre) criminals, that doesn’t make it any less in my eyes. If someone tips off authorities to criminal behavior, that does not make the criminal any less of one, but I doubt that ever happened.
    I won’t debate this, but I and anyone else here has every right to comment about the Giudices whether it is liked or not. So Puleeze, is getting old being beaten down for comments that are not liked by another.
    Have a great day! 😀

    1. I agree completely with you . Who cares how the Feds found out. If Theresa & joe had been honest there would have been nothing to find. Theresa has blamed joe, her lawyer, jac & Caroline . I wonder who else she is going to blame in this grand conspiracy against her? Seriously delusional !! And the reason it keeps getting talked about is here is Theresa not taking ownership of her actions & acting entitled. wow! As for being sooo old & talked to death , maybe Theresa should show some remorse & humbleness
