'Real Housewives of New Jersey's' Caroline Manzo Addresses Jacqueline and Teresa's Feud (Video)
As The Hollywood Reporter reported last week, Jacqueline Laurita has beef with her Real Housewives of New Jersey cast mate and former friend, Teresa Giudice. On Sunday’s Watch What Happens Live, fellow housewife Caroline Manzo tries to bring calm to the situation.
“It’s an interesting dynamic, it is what it is,” Manzo tells host Andy Cohen. “I can only say to all the fans out there that they’re going to watch it unfold before their eyes, so just sit back, relax, you’re going to see it happen on Season 4.”
She then confirmed that Laurita is doing fine. The housewife skipped the Season 3 reunion taping and a source tells us she doesn’t want to return for Season 5.
Things got heated over the weekend when Laurita specifically called out Giudice for spreading a story about her sister-in-law and cast mate, Melissa Gorga, being a stripper years ago. It reportedly unraveled at a fashion show that was being shot for the upcoming Season 4.
"Teresa told me that 'rumor' about Melissa when she first started the show," Laurita tweeted Saturday. "She wanted her out then. She knew. She plotted it. She played dumb on camera and even defended Melissa."
She also tweeted, “Teresa is scum!”
Giudice responded last week on the accusations, writing “Sorry, it's NOT true. But you'll all have to turn in to Season 4 of RHONJ to see what really happens (the truth is actually way scarier...)”
