As we reported earlier this week, the two-part reunion ofÂ The Real Housewives of New Jersey gets a little out of control. Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo verbally attack co-star Danielle Staub and in the process, host Andy Cohen gets physically assaulted. When the women watched the reunion episodes in their entirety, they were shocked by the hostile and violent behavior that took place. Keep reading for Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo’s thoughts on the tense reunion…
Previews for the two-part reunion ofÂ The Real Housewives of New Jersey indicate how tense, volatile, and uncomfortable the gathering was. The women exchange horrific verbal lashings and, in one instance, Teresa Giudice actually gets physically violent with host Andy Cohen, shoving him away from her into his chair. The ladies had a chance to relive the drama when they viewed the two-part reunion special earlier this week.
“I didn’t believe my eyes!” Teresa Giudice said about watching the reunion.Â ”I didn’t mean to shove Andy.Â I love Andy. When I’m attacked, I attack back. I don’t like to be held back or touched…Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don’t hold me back!”
Caroline Manzo had a hard time processing everything that went down during the filming.Â ”There are no words,” she says about the reunion.Â Â ”Just no words. I could not compose a rational thought in my head for two days [after the taping]. It took me two days to regroup.”
Although Manzo said the reunion was difficult to watch, it did teach her a lesson.Â ”How people have the opportunity to look at themselves from the outside in…I learned that I’m very tough…When I watch [the reunion] I can’t help but say ‘damn, I’m tough!’” she says.
