Real housewives from New Jersey: Teresa Giudice admits that she is a tough girl and tackles rival during the trip
Teresa Giudice may play the long-suffering woman on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, but she wasn’t always the one on the defense.
She admitted in the Wednesday show that she knew that her husband Joe Giudice, 47, had cheated on her because old fragments of his petty behavior were playing.
But when she was younger, Teresa, 47, was the aggressor who beat women up in a club after they flirted with her boyfriend, her friend Dolores Catania, 49.
Tough girl: Teresa Giudice, after admitting she knew her husband was cheating, also confessed to be a tough girl in the episode of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey on Wednesday
“Teresa beat up two girls and a man,” Dolores said, while the RHONJ cast enjoyed a nostalgic visit to the Jersey Shore.
“That was my boyfriend,” Teresa replied, admitting that she had taken hold of a woman after seeing her ex’s hand hold, causing Dolores to call her “an animal.”
Her brother, Joe Gorga, 40, remembered how tough Teresa once was and said, “Her friends, if they ever looked at other girls, abused them.”
It was hard for him to believe how much she had changed, he said, especially when it came to the way she denied the false rumors.

“That’s why I’m shocked by her,” he confirmed. “She was like,” “I need proof.” “Oh, I see pictures of him having sex, but she never told me!”
“He didn’t tell me he had sexual intercourse, so I don’t think so,” agreed Joe’s wife, Melissa Gorga, 40, and imitated Teresa.
Teresa had previously admitted that she knew Joe was cheating on her and put an end to years of denial and avoidance of the subject. While her friends were standing in the kitchen of their Jersey Shore rental home, she explained how hard life had been with Joe.

“I signed a pre-nup a week before I got married,” Teresa began.
“He said to me:” The reason why I let you sign the pre-nup is because … I didn’t even want to get married. “
“I think he’s a hole to tell you,” said Dolores’ ex, Frank Catania, 55.

“I have a lot of resentment,” Teresa agreed. “I feel like I didn’t deserve that because I was the perfect, perfect woman.”
“But do you think he was just as good a man as you were to him?” Frank asked.
“No, because there were rumors,” Teresa said.

“Do you think he ever fooled you?” asked Joe Benigno, the husband of her friend Margaret Josephs, 52.
“Listen, he had a separate cell phone with one girl,” Teresa replied, explaining that she had found it. “It was his ex-girlfriend’s sister. He said she was going through her divorce [and] he helped her sell her house. “
“I resigned,” she continued. “[My daughter] Gia was three and I thought, “What am I going to do?” I should have left then, right? I didn’t do it because he denied it to me. I believed him. “

Her brother asked her what everyone was wondering: “Do you think he cheated on you today?”
“Yes, now I do that,” Teresa confirmed, everyone looking shocked to hear it.
“Listen, I don’t think it’s news for anyone cheating on Joe Teresa,” Melissa said in a confessional. “What the news is here is that Teresa finally admits it.”
Old show images showed Joe, who called Teresa ‘my b **** wife’.

Clips from a reunion in 2015 also showed former cast member Jacqueline Laurita, 49, pointing out that Teresa Joe had been fooled with another woman in his office.
“I’m just saying, sometimes you’re blind,” Teresa commented.
“It has been a long time and it is still very difficult for me to admit it, but I owe it to myself to open my eyes to it,” she added in a confessional.

At dinner that evening, Joe and Melissa laughed softly about her unconsciousness, which confused Teresa.
“It’s not really funny,” she told the cameras. “I mean, this is my life and I really don’t think it’s something to laugh about.”
Everyone shared their memories of the Jersey Shore, with Gorga telling how he had met Melissa in Cancun and then looking for her every weekend in the Shore.

“I found her,” he crowed, remembering that his heart had run wild when they met again, although she shrugged and walked away.
The cast then heard that Danielle Staub, 57, would be at the Shore, where Melissa said that both Danielle and Jennifer Aydin, 42, were “on thin ice” with her.
Melissa and Jennifer had recently had a spit in which Jennifer threw food at Melissa.

The next day, as they all went to the pool, Melissa joked that maybe Teresa could find “a little boy” there, which Teresa regretted what she had said about Joe.
“My daughters love their father,” she told everyone, although she admitted that she had “resentment” for all the things she had done for him and the money she had spent.
“I should be so much further in life,” Teresa admitted. “Everything fell because of the legal stuff. And I’ll be honest, I always emphasize money. “
Felt bad: the reality star felt bad afterwards because he spoke badly about Joe and noticed that her daughters adore him
“Do you know what Milania recently said that made me feel really bad?” she added, referring to her 15-year-old daughter. “She said,” Ma, I don’t care about money. I want how it used to be. ‘I worry about my children every day. “
Margaret had a connection with Teresa about the lawsuits they were facing, but Jennifer pointed out that Margaret had much more support from her husband than Teresa currently has.
“My daughter wants me to be home every day,” Teresa shared. “I’m so fond of it,” I have to work. “
Jennifer’s husband Bill sympathized and said that children did not know how hard their mothers worked.

“I didn’t know Jen worked,” an irritated Margaret cracked.
Jennifer saw. ‘Excuse me?’ she said in a confessional. ‘Raising five children is not work? My work is 10 times harder than what she does. So check that, b ***. “
Before the cast went on a trip, Teresa gave Gia a party for her ball, trying to make up for her eighth grade dance, which she missed when she was in prison.

Gia’s date was Frankie Catania, Jr., the 20-year-old son of Dolores and Frank, who joked about an arranged marriage.
Gia’s father called her when she got ready and said he was “choked” that he couldn’t be there, which made her cry.
Elsewhere in the episode, Jennifer took her daughter Gabriella, 12, to have her uncle Steven Altinel direct an event for the Long Island Musical Theater Festival.

Jennifer hoped that Steven’s courage to live his life as a gay man could inspire Gabby, who had been bullied at school by girls.
At the end of the evening, Steven’s mother told him that she supported and loved him, which was her way of saying she accepted him.
“Seeing how far he got is an example for Gabby just to stay herself,” Jennifer said. “If Steven has found what he fits, she can.”

In another scene, Dolores and her friend David Principe discussed how they would decorate their new home together, and the dedication they all made.
“David gives me many things other men don’t have,” Dolores said in a confessional. “He never lied. He never cheated. And now that is more important to me than a ring. “
