Teresa Giudice has been snubbed by her Real Housewives of New Jersey cast mates for about a year, and she has had enough—she is ready to make amends with Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile. Teresa has written each cast mate an apology. Read on to learn what she has to say.
Teresa writes to Jacqueline in In Touch Weekly (in their print edition):
I wish we could have resolved things sooner because I’m sincerely sorry for upsetting you—and I’m sorry I didn’t respond to your apology on Twitter. I feel like things have gotten out of hand, which is sad. I miss our friendship. I miss being like Lucy and Ethel with you. And so I hope we can work through these problems one day, when you are ready.
Well, Jacqueline was ready to respond to Teresa’s apology, and they talked on the phone briefly. This conversation was (of course) discussed on Twitter. @JacLaurita wrote: “After insulting my husband, then rehashing the past, her animosity is still there & I think it’s going to take a while to get past this. Maybe one day.” In other words, it didn’t go very well. She then continued: “Baby steps would be great with @Teresa_Giudice but only if its sincere & it definitely didn’t sound like it.”
To Caroline, Teresa writes: “I’m truly sorry for offending your cooking…We had a lot of fun together and shared many laughs. I miss those good times. I just want us all to get along.” Caroline has since responded that she doesn’t think Teresa is sorry, but that Teresa’s publicist is sorry.
Teresa tells Kathy, “I forgive you for saying you dread being around me…I have nothing but love for you in my heart.”
Teresa addressed her apology letter to Melissa and her brother, Joe Gorga. She writes:
I’m sorry I haven’t been as enthusiastic about Melissa’s singing career as I should have been. I’m happy that you are following your dreams. Also, this has been difficult for our parents; it breaks their hearts. I want to make them proud, and I want them to be happy. Life is too short to live like this…
Teresa, who is still competing on Celebrity Apprentice, has said working with sick children for her charity has really opened her eyes to how insignificant her drama is in comparison. Teresa may be ready to move on, but her cast mates may not be—let’s face it; the focus of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and all the promotions involving the show revolve around drama with Teresa. In fact, the season 4 premiere was the highest-rated premiere on Bravo with a little over 3 million viewers. Based on those ratings, maybe Bravo doesn’t want want the cast to get along.
Do you think any of Teresa’s cast mates will finally forgive Teresa? Has she earned their forgiveness?
