Teresa Guidice Reportedly Still ‘In Love’ With Ex Joe Giudice But Using The Breakup To Get Attention
Apparently, all is not well in Dolores Catania and Teresa Giudice’s world. After being friends for years, the two are reportedly feuding. Part of the reason? Delores believes Teresa is still in love with her ex Joe Guidice. One source told The Sun that Delores is even trying to get the 48-year-old star tossed off the show so that she can take the spotlight.
“Dolores has been complaining to friends about Teresa,” an insider said. “She actually wants her off the show.
Supposedly, the relative newcomer to the series feels that she isn’t getting the focus she wants because Teresa is taking up so much of the spotlight.
“She is tired of her being the center of attention and feels she overstayed her welcome,” the source said.
On top of that, Dolores reportedly feels that Teresa isn’t being honest about her relationship with ex Joe Giudice.
“She claims Teresa is just being really fake and is still in love with Joe,” the source said. “She claims she would do anything to be back together with him but is using their break up to keep her storyline exciting.”
That worries Dolores because, according to the insider, she is worried that her “philanthropic storyline” isn’t interesting enough to keep viewers glued to their screens, which is making her feel insecure and causing her to lash out.
The source made it clear that the New Jersey OG isn’t in any danger from Dolores, and that she doesn’t feel threatened by her co-star.
“Dolores knows she has no power to make that happen and seems very frustrated.”
Teresa apparently doesn’t know about the badmouthing and it would likely be a problem for their friendship if she did. The two have been friends for years, and Dolores has said that she remembers her fellow RHONJ star being with her while she was pregnant with her daughter Gabrielle, who is now 21 years old.
She joined the show in 2016 for its seventh season, which is now in its 11th season. However, filming has been halted amidst the coronavirus pandemic and is only now resuming.
Teresa and her husband called it quits after he was deported to his native Italy following the completion of his imprisonment for fraud. Though they live an ocean apart, the two haven’t made any concrete plans to divorce, despite rumors that both have moved on.
Meanwhile, their four children — Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana — haven’t been able to see their father since the pandemic put travel plans on hold.
