Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice reveals exclusively to RumorFix that Melissa Gorga “grabs my arm and I tell her to get her hands off of me” during part two of the reunion show that airs Sunday.
Teresa tells our correspondent Real Mr. Housewife, that Melissa made up a story about Teresa roughing her up and twisting her arm as a preemptive strike.
“I never twisted her arm. The reason why I think she’s bringing this up– what, nine or 10 months later — is because at the reunion show she puts her hands on me,” Teresa tells us.
“I think she was trying to plant the seed and put that out there so she’ll have a reason, like, ‘She touched me so that’s why I touched her.’ She grabs my arm and I tell her to get her hands off of me. “
Jacqueline Laurita claims the arm-twisting incident happened in the parking lot. But, Teresa tells us, “I never left the party. I was inside the whole time. It’s funny to me how Jacqueline said that. I said to Jacquline, ‘who said it?’ She said a friend of hers. I said, ‘Really? Who?’ They didn’t show that. She wouldn’t tell me who the friend was. When you can’t back up your story, then don’t say it.”
Since Teresa was talking about Melissa, the Real Mr. Housewife asked what’s the biggest misconception about Melissa?
Teresa said, “Melissa is a really good actress. I was on the show two years before she came on. She came on the show behind my back. I think she’s very calculating, very contrived, and knows what she’s doing. I know from knowing her eight years now that what you see on this show is not the real Melissa. Eventually everyone’s true colors come out. One day maybe eventually maybe you guys will see that. She plays the victim role really well.”
When asked if she thinks Melissa wants to be a celebrity, Teresa responded, “Hello! She attends every single party that’s out there. That’s not me. I have a family, I have four daughters, I hardly go to parties because I have four daughters to take care of. I’m not out there half as much as she is out there.”
Currently, Teresa has her Fabbelini Drink Line, her Milania Hair Care Line, and her NY Times Bestseller cookbooks.
