The last episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey showed just how much of a disrespectful scumbag Joe Giudice is. Camera’s caught him sneaking off to call a woman and when his wife, Teresa Giudice, came to get him he referred to her as his “bitch wife”, among other things. It was the kind of scene that caught Joe at one of his most real moments and it confirmed what any regular viewer already knows, it’s time for Teresa to walk away.
Following the episode this week, Teresa eventually took to her blog to talk about Joe’s phone call and how he demeaned her.
A magazine called me two weeks ago to ask me about my reaction to the new episode they just received. I hadn’t seen it, so I had no idea what they were talking about. Once I got a copy and watched it, I was sick. I felt like I’d been kicked in the stomach. It has not been a good couple of weeks. Of course I begged Bravo not to air it, but when you sign up for a TV show, you sign up to show everything, warts and all. The good and the bad. Kind of like that other promise: for better or for worse. Welcome to the “worse.”
I can’t make any excuses for what Joe said to me. He doesn’t talk like that to me at home and he’s never called me that name before, and he doesn’t remember saying it. But it’s not right. It hurt my feelings, and it was horrible to watch played out on national TV.
Why did he say it? I have no idea. I do know we were in the wine capital of America drinking heavily… Alcohol + camera = not a good idea. But believe me, if he talked to me like that regularly, we would not be together. I don’t know why the camera (and alcohol) brings out the worst in him… it just does. Imagine being filmed all the time during the most stressful parts of your life. We were on an 8-day trip in close quarters with people Joe didn’t really want to be with. But no matter what the circumstances were, it’s not OK that he talked to me like that. It’s not OK for our relationship, it’s not OK as an example for our daughters, it’s not how I want to be spoken to or will be spoken to by anyone.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe for one minute that this was the first time he has ever spoken to- or about his wife like this. This guy is constantly taking shots at her! They can’t take a car ride without him ripping her apart and dissecting her driving, which is pretty hilarious considering he doesn’t even have a valid driver’s license!
Teresa seems to be making only half of the usual excuses. Do you think she is beginning to see the light? Will she leave him soon or is the end of this marriage going to drag on until Joe is finally behind bars for those fraud charges? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
