Teresa Giudice Hangs Out With NeNe Leakes And Cynthia Bailey, Calls ‘RHONJ’ Season 7 ‘The Most Powerful Yet’

Teresa Giudice spent her Friday night with some fellow Real Housewives stars, not from New Jersey but Atlanta. Early Saturday morning, Teresa, one of the starring cast members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, posted a photo of herself with The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. Teresa commented that she had “so much fun” with NeNe, Cynthia, and their other friends over dinner in Atlanta. The photo shows the women, casually dressed, sitting around some bistro tables with coffee and/or tea in front of them.

Teresa went to Atlanta for the Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo, where she gave the keynote address on Saturday.

Teresa and Cynthia were also keynote speakers at the event. Kim Fields, who starred on Season 8 alongside Teresa and Cynthia and was most recently seen on Dancing with the Stars, was also a keynote speaker.

The day of the expo, NeNe posted a photograph of herself with Teresa. She wrote that they were enjoying “girl time.”

NeNe Leakes voiced her support for Teresa Giudice after both she and her husband, Joe Giudice, were sentenced to serve time in prison for fraud. In October 2014, NeNe, while talking about both the prison sentences of Teresa and Joe and that of Apollo Nida, her co-star Phaedra Parks’ husband, told E! News that Teresa is a good person despite the crime.

“I probably felt the same way about Teresa as I did about Apollo…And just being a part of that, sometimes you have to sit and think, ‘Gosh I did not know my life would even take me these places or around these people.’ And you form a connection with these people and you like them. And I just hurt for Teresa and I hurt for Apollo and I hurt for Phaedra. It’s sad! Because how I see it is they are good people. I know they broke the law but I still see them as good people and I hate that they have to go away for so long. It’s so hurtful.”

In December 2014, NeNe told HuffPost Live that she and Teresa talk via text. NeNe also revealed that Teresa, who began her prison sentence in early January 2015, wanted to attend the opening night of her run as the wicked stepmother on Broadway’s Cinderella but backed out because of all the press attention. Teresa, along with her daughters, ended up watching NeNe perform at a later date.

Teresa began filming Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey right after she returned home from prison in late December 2015. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bravo confirmed in February that Season 7 will air later in the summer and that it’ll star Teresa, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita. Kathy Wakile, Siggy Flicker, Robyn Levy, and Dolores Catania will reportedly be seen as “friends” of the housewives. Bravo has yet to announce an exact premiere date.

Yet it seems that the day of the premiere is getting close. Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen watched the premiere episode on Friday night and declared that it’s so good that it made him cry.

Teresa responded to Andy’s tweet by calling Season 7 “the most powerful season yet.”
