Teresa Giudice Says Kathy And Rosie Are Just Using Her For Fame And Fortune

Teresa Giudice has always been critical of her cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. When Teresa started filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she was the only person in her family who was filming. But as the seasons kept on coming, Teresa's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was asked to film the show, and Giudice's two cousins, Kathy and Rosie, also joined the show. The entire time, Teresa revealed that she had no idea that her family was filming the show, and she felt that they had all gone behind her back.

According to a new Bravo report, Teresa Giudice is now revealing where she stands with her family today. Of course, Teresa and Melissa Gorga have worked out their issues, and they are still filming the show. But Bravo decided not to continue with Kathy and her family. They have made smaller appearances, such as when they crashed Teresa Giudice's book signing earlier this year after she was released from prison. Now, Giudice has revealed that she wants nothing to do with her cousins at the moment.

"Yeah it's hard because it's sad that people, that your family, come on the show and do things and do nasty things for money and fame," Teresa Giudice recently revealed while talking to The Daily Dish about her cousins, adding, "No, never [do we talk]."

Teresa pointed out that for Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, it's all "about the money and it's all about the fame."

Kathy and Rosie seem eager to make peace with Giudice, and they asked for a sit-down while she was filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. They have been hanging out with Jacqueline Laurita, and she's been giving them the platform that Teresa claims they crave. But Teresa has plenty of old feelings in regards to what they did, including how they used her for fame and how they slammed her family. And now that Giudice's husband is behind bars, one can imagine she wants to protect the family she does have.

"I'm not making them make our family look like fools like we already did," Teresa Giudice explains, adding, "We've already looked like fools. They put our family through the mud, it's disgraceful. And I'm over it and I'm not doing it anymore... You should tell Kathy and Rosie I'm still waiting for my thank you card."

Giudice hasn't revealed what she's been hurt over, but she recently revealed that Richie Wakile had something to do with the fact that she didn't want to make peace with her cousin, Kathy Wakile. He once tossed her cookbook in the garbage as a joke, but Teresa Giudice took it personally as she had worked hard on her book, and it was her way of making money for her family."There's a lot to it, but here is what I will tell you: Yes, Richie has had something to do with this. Over the years, he has always managed to put me down, make jokes at my expense or say really cutting things about me. I talked about how mad I was that he threw my cookbook in the garbage years ago. I mean, who does that? I had it with Richie a long time ago, but have kept my mouth shut about him over the years because he is married to my cousin," Teresa Giudice has revealed in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, sharing that she's done trying to make an effort with her cousins, who are clearly not on the same page as her.
