I Don’t Regret Bringing Up Gia in Teresa Fight


Things obtained heated between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider in the course of the season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, however the latter tells Us Weekly completely that she has no regrets relating to her shutdown with the OG.

During the Wednesday, February 17, premiere, Teresa, 48, alleged that Jackie’s husband, Evan Goldschneider, was untrue to her with somebody at his fitness center. After the 44-year-old journalist discovered that the Standing Strong creator was making these claims about Evan at his celebration, Jackie requested Teresa to confess that she was mendacity.

“She doesn’t even know who told her. I don’t even think anybody told her. I think she pulled it out of her ass,” Jackie tells Us about Teresa’s claims. “I was really caught off-guard. I expect the best from people. I really thought that she was gonna make it right. And then we’d all go to Lake George the next day. And that is not the way it happened. And it really caught me off-guard.”

Instead of constructing amends, issues obtained worse between the costars when Jackie in contrast the dishonest claims about Evan to rumors that Teresa’s eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, “snorts coke in the bathroom” at events.

“I wasn’t starting a rumor about Gia. I was giving an analogy,” Jackie tells Us. “I think that like almost everyone will say that that’s an analogy and the truth is that there’s no one else in Teresa’s life that I can make her understand. When you say something about someone you love, whether or not it’s true, it hurts, you know? So, I don’t regret that because if I was saying something nasty about Gia, then I would regret it. But I was giving an analogy, which it was pretty clear to almost everyone.”

After Jackie introduced up the 20-year-old faculty scholar, Teresa snapped and repeatedly referred to as her castmate a “c—t.” The showdown was so intense that Jackie, who joined the cast throughout 9, almost stop the present.

“When it comes to my family, I will never be OK with somebody trying to come between us. So, I’ll never have a thick skin when it comes to my family,” Jackie tells Us. “The fact that anybody could think that you could do something that potentially destroys a family with four young children, and then just be like, ‘Who cares’ to me? There’s no show I could be on long enough that that would ever happen.”

Jackie and Evan, who wed in 2006, share two units of twins: 12-year-old Jonas and Adin and 9-year-old Alexis and Hudson. Teresa, for her half, can be the mom of Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11, with ex-husband Joe Giudice.

“My girls are so strong and resilient,” Teresa instructed Us forward of Wednesday’s premiere. “And they have always been good at adapting to changes, which is something I feel is very important because life is very unpredictable.”
