Teresa Giudice is taking to her Bravo Blog to talk about her explosive fight with her brother at the gym in this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Teresa shares that when her brother started attacking her husband’s parenting skills, he was crossing a major line with her, and she still doesn’t understand why he is so angry with her. Teresa writes that she believes Joe displaces his anger and denies the problems that are going on in his own life!
Teresa writes, “When I finally did see my brother for the first time, I went up to him right away and tried to be friendly and goof around with him like we did our whole lives. Caroline had just told me how much he wanted to work things out with me, so badly he supposedly sent Caroline to help him, so I thought it would be may be a little awkward but still nice. Baby steps. I definitely did not expect his attack. I didn’t understand any of it then, and I still don’t now. He’s my brother, and as mad as I might be at him, I would never hurt him in public like that. I don’t understand how he could even say half the things that came out of his mouth, directly to my face, in public in front of America. I get it that in the heat of the moment people who have deep feelings for each other know how to hurt each other the most, but still, there are lines you don’t cross. When Joey started talking about my husband’s parenting, that was it for me. He crossed the line and was out of line.
I think you can see that I’m not used to being talked to like that. If my husband really did talk to me like that, I would flip more than a trash can, I would flip him right out of the house! I truly do not understand how my brother can talk to me like that, and why he’s so angry with me… for what I still don’t know. I can’t imagine wanting to hurt anyone that much, especially my only brother. It’s like he’s not in his right mind or something.
One of my best friends’ dads is a psychiatrist, and she told me that everything Joey did was a defense mechanism to protect himself from his own feelings. He denies anything is wrong in his own life, displaces his anger at himself or his wife to me since he knows I won’t fight back, and projects things he is actually guilty of onto other people, like my husband. It does make sense to me, but it doesn’t hurt any less. I’m about to run out of prayers for him and me. I could use extra if you’ve got ’em.”
