It was the phone call heard round the world, where Joe Giudice referred to his wife as a b*** and a c*** on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. While this isn’t new news, now Teresa is speaking out about forgiving her husband, and reacting to the footage Bravo aired.
Apparently, Teresa was contacted by a magazine for a comment, before she even saw the footage that was about to be aired.
“A magazine called me two weeks ago (before the episode aired) to ask me about my reaction to the new episode they just received. I hadn’t seen it, so I had no idea what they were talking about. Once I got a copy and watched it, I was sick. I felt like I’d been kicked in the stomach. It has not been a good couple of weeks,” the reality star shares.
As we reported earlier, Teresa begged Bravo not to air the footage. She continues by saying, “Of course I begged Bravo not to air it, but when you sign up for a TV show, you sign up to show everything, warts and all. The good and the bad. Kind of like that other promise: for better or for worse. Welcome to the “worse.””
Teresa says that Joe does not speak to her like that at home, and that he doesn’t remember calling her that “name.” She goes on to say that they had been drinking all day, Joe didn’t want to be on the trip in the first place, and he really was having work problems back at home. But, she doesn’t defend his actions, she says, “No matter what the circumstances were, it’s not OK that he talked to me like that. It’s not OK for our relationship, it’s not OK as an example for our daughters, it’s not how I want to be spoken to by anyone.”
Teresa continues her explanation saying, “Joe does feel terrible, and he’s apologized to me and all our friends.”
