During her Bravo Blog this week Teresa Giudice insisted she did not invite Penny Drossos or Jan DeDolce to the Milania Hair Care Launch Party, but Teresa’s BFF Kim DePaola has a different story. Teresa wrote, “For the record, I didn’t invite Jan or Penny. The party was open to any salon owners who called in and spoke with the Youthful 8 company reps.”
But according to Kim D’s blog, Teresa DID invite Jan and Penny because they were hairdressers and were already carrying her product in their salons.
“Now onto the drama…there are a couple of points I would like to make about the accusations rehashed in this episode: A) These rumors about Melissa had been going around for a while, even prior to the show. B) The man in question had been Tweeting with intention to expose her for the alleged accusations. C) Melissa’s sisters were fighting back with the man on Twitter. So how would that make Teresa guilty? And D) I just listened.
Teresa did make the phone call to warn Melissa that Jan and Penny were coming to the Milania event. She didn’t want Melissa to be alarmed when she saw them there. She did not go behind her back. On that note, both Jan and Penny were hairdressers that Teresa invited because they were already carrying the product in their salons. However, had they not been personally invited, they still could have attended. It was an open invite only to all salon owners. If I found out that one of my closest friends, the only friend I had in my wedding, was claiming that I had an affair I would absolutely want to confront her about it. To address Melissa’s comment about “b*tches trying to bring her down”, I will repeat: These rumors started years ago. And to address Joe’s comment to the tune of “I wish I was a girl…I’d be laying b*tches out”, I am not surprised. He does a pretty good job of expressing his emotions without laying them out. Let’s hope that never happens!”
As a businesswoman promoting a product, Teresa should of course be gracious to Jan. As she said the Milania Haircare was in her salon and everyone loved it. Jan was there to support her in this new endeavor. Teresa should not have to take on Melissa’s foes. It should be completely out of her hands. When two women have a close relationship and something happens to make them grow apart, it is not hard to feel hurt or to have resentment. In my own experience as a woman, we tend to gossip and share secrets in the heat of the moment. It’s just what we do. I really do hope that one day Melissa and Jan can move forward from this and mend their friendship. I recently read this quote on Facebook that I love: “We don’t lose friends. We learn who are real ones are.” It holds a great deal of truth to it.”
