Last week Teresa Giudice was in the hot seat during the first part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. There were accusations back and forth with Caroline Manzo about what Teresa Giudice said about her brother Joe Gorga. Then Teresa Giudice fought with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her cousin Kathy Wakile. This past season on her reality show has seen the bonds of loyalty between the Manzo and Giudice families break irreparably. Now Teresa Giudice is joining the cast of Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump and Victoria Gottti. Reports so far hint that the Mafia princess and bestselling author is poised to rumble with the New Jersey housewife on the set.
Victoria Gotti is the daughter of the late mob boss John Gotti and is just as tough as the ladies on Mob Wives. Some insiders are predicting that Victoria Gotti is going to rival Teresa Giudice on the Celebrity Apprentice. The Italian-American women are both known for their strong personalities and fans are wondering just how intense it’s going to be if and when the ladies clash.
“Donald Trump is a casting genius,” a TV insider has been quoted as saying. “Putting these two strong Italian ladies together in a competition and having camera crews follow them around is going to be TV gold.”
Teresa Giudice has had a lot of drama to deal with in recent months. She has clashed with former co-star Danielle Staub, insulted neighbor Kim G, and now is no longer friends with Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo. She is dealing with financial problems and constant tension with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga. Her husband Joe Giudice has legal problems of his own and is rumored to be cheating. Her cousin Kathy Wakile struggles to have a peaceful relationship with Teresa Giudice as well.
During The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion it was revealed by Caroline Manzo that her estrangement from younger sister Dina Manzo was caused by Teresa Giudice. So far, Dina Manzo had said that she is not taking sides in the fight between her older sister and her friend. It is this kind of explosive drama that producers are hoping for by casting Teresa Giudice with Victoria Gotti on the set of Celebrity Apprentice.
“Taping Housewives is easy compared to taping the Apprentice,’” a TV insider has said. “First of all, you have a 5:30 a.m. wake-up call every day and then are given a task which you have two days to complete and then you start all over again.”
Former contestants have said that the Celebrity Apprentice is a much tougher show to be involved in compared to The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Donald Trump may just find himself another season of high ratings according to TV insiders if Teresa Giudice and Victoria Gotti get into a turf war with one another on the show.
