Teresa’s BravoTV.com blog. My comments are in bold.
Teresa keeps it Real and addresses all the gossip.
I can’t believe the season is over! And I can’t believe how it ended! I was totally NOT expecting Danielle to come over and give me a hug (um, Andy, I thought you said no one could get off the couch and “cross you” again?)(no Teresa, he said YOU were not allowed to cross him again) I didn’t expect it at all, but I’m not going to turn her away (and no, I didn’t bathe in holy water afterwards, but those of you who told me I should—it did make me laugh). I know she’s still going after all of us in the press, still lying like she always does, (so you don’t need a hairline revision?)but I really do forgive her. (bullshit) I feel sorry for her (bullshit) that she can’t move on with her life. I hope she does. I wish her and her girls every happiness in the world. (bullshit) My focus is my family, my beautiful girls, my amazing husband, and moving forward with my life (and the bankruptcy trial, trying to stop the auction, trying to keep Melissa off the show, trying to keep Joe out of the strip clubs and off the booze.)
I know there are a million crazy stories in the press about me right now, (actually just a few, and they aren’t crazy as much as they are true) but none of them are from me (no they aren’t “from” you, they are “about” you) except the cover story I did with “In Touch” magazine. If you hear it directly from me, you can(‘t) believe it. Otherwise, it’s garbage (like Danielle?) . I wouldn’t even address the rumors except so many of you are asking and I do want you to know (Teresa’s version of) the truth. So, here we go:
I only have one brother—his name is also Joe—and I love him and his family. (she also said she loved Andy Cohen after she tossed him like a rag doll) His picture is in my cookbook! They have been invited and attended every family event I’ve had,(but not the family vacation to your home town) the stuff that made it on air for the show and the stuff that didn’t. If you go back and watch, you can see them at my Housewarming party,(did you throw the gift they brought to that party in the trash too?) Gia’s birthday party (When you made and Melissa and her daughter meet you at the salon instead of riding in the limo with the other girls) and Audriana’s Christening. (Why wasn’t Melissa named Godmother if you love her so much?)
(And why wasn’t Melissa’s name mentioned once in this whole paragraph? Why didn’t you tell everyone to follow her on twitter if you love her so much? –> @Melissa_Gorga if anyone wants to follow.)
I don’t have an African American nephew on mine or Joe’s side, but if I did, I’d welcome him with love like I have all my other nieces and nephews and cousins.(which isn’t saying much) I grew up in Paterson, New Jersey, I have always had lots of African American friends and still do.(then why didn’t you invite them to any of your parties?) The story that I wouldn’t acknowledge someone, let alone a family member, because of their race is horribly untrue. I love people for their hearts, not their appearance.(Lmfao. Yeah… ok. Sure. )
I was in Las Vegas last Sunday and Monday for an event to promote my book “Skinny Italian.” I was at Revolution at the Mirage and the Abbey beach at the new Vdara hotel with my fabulous gays. It was a great Labor Gay Weekend! I love you all, especially you, Eduardo! Thanks for taking such great care of me. I took the red-eye home so I would be there for my kids’ first day of school. It’s exhausting being a working mommy, isn’t it? (Yes laying by the pool and taking pictures all day is soooo exhausting.) But I wouldn’t trade it for the world! They all had a great day! I posted pictures on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.
I also just starred in the charity performances of “My Big Gay Italian Wedding” for marriage equality (not “marriage of quality” this time? Someone must have proof read this.) Off-Broadway. It was so fun and yes, Joe was there to support me and support the wonderful cause. (I’m sorry but I just can’t picture Joe caring about marriage equality, or sitting through a musical.)
Oh, and I’m NOT claustrophobic. 😉 (Really? Not with all that hair taking over your face?)
I think that takes care of all the crazy stories for the week. (what about Tara and the perjury??) I expect the stories next week will have me hooked on drugs or abducted by aliens or something. (doubt it, I think next week they’ll still be about Melissa, Tara, and bankruptcy)But I promise you all, I’m great, Joe is great, our kids are great, and we are so blessed by your wonderful messages and support!
Some real good news: “Skinny Italian” is back on the New York Times bestseller list again – this time at #6!!! (Still not as good as Naturally Thin) I’m so excited! Thank you all, my sexy Italian cooks! Visit my websitewww.teresagiudice.com for sample chapters, photos from the book and a list of all the recipes. They are simple, healthy, budget-friendly and so delicious! Lots of veggie and non-dairy recipes in there as well. (vegetarian non-dairy healthy cheap old country Italian recipes?) And it has the complete nutritional info for every recipe, so it’s Weight Watchers-friendly as well. If you can’t find it in your local bookstore, try the Bravo online store or Amazon. (or at Chateau salon in North Jersey where you can buy one for $20 cash and help her hide money from the government) And yes, I am working on my second cookbook right now. It will have 60 more, all new family recipes, (better hurry up and finish that book before season 3 airs and your reputation and book sales go the way of Jill Zarin) new stories, new photos, new fun facts. It will be out in Spring 2011!

Thank you for letting me and my family into your house and your hearts. It’s been a wonderful, crazy ride. Xx
