Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is opening up about being on the hit Bravo show in a new interview with OutInJersey! Teresa says she believes she is targeted on the show because “they always try to take the strongest down,” and that she found out Melissa and Kathy joined the show when she received a phone call from Andy Cohen! Teresa also shares how she thinks a cast change could add a nice twist to the show!
“I heard that “they always try to take the strongest one down” and I definitely see that to be true. What people don’t understand is what people saw happen on television really happened to me and to my family. Melissa (Gorga) and Kathy (Wakile) joined the cast behind my back and I truly did not know; I only found out when Andy Cohen called me to tell me. That was definitely hard for me. Imagine that playing out and your family is saying things about you, and people really don’t know what sides to take. They weren’t going to make the new cast members look bad, and I’d already been on for two seasons. At first I didn’t get it, but it does make for great ratings. It was a really hard time and it was a hard thing for me to deal with. Right now though, things are really good with my family; you will just have to stay tuned to see how things play out,” Teresa says.
It has been rumored that season 5 will be the last for some of the original cast members, and Teresa says she would love to see some new faces on the show! “You know, if anything I would like to have another family come on and join us. Kathy has three sister-in-laws that are Lebanese, so that would be an interesting twist to bring on, and it would definitely keep it in the family. For me, I don’t want to fight with my family, that’s not something I signed up for. Right now, we are in a good place, and I’m gonna stay in that good place. I would know how the show works though, they want drama; but you don’t want the whole world to see that. I definitely try to instill that in my girls though, you don’t fight with your sisters, that’s never ok. They are your family.”
