Teresa Giudice has reportedly been fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, to which we say – it’s about time! The woman’s a convict and a felon and is about to serve serious jail time. I know reality shows are all about the ratings, but are they really willing to risk any modicum of remaining respect to keep Teresa on their roster? The answer to that is a resounding no.
We always knew that Bravo executives would fire her before she ended up in jail, and we were right. Plus, she made it really easy for them by not participating in any major events and refusing to do any promotion for the latest season. What are they really gaining from her name, apart from the notoriety? Thus, they fired her.
They also had Dina Manzo ready and waiting to take her spot on the show, helped by Dina’s willingness to stab her friend in the back. To be fair, Teresa was extremely naive in trusting that Dina had her best interests at heart. Does anyone on that show actually have each other’s best interests at heart? More than anyone, Teresa more than anyone should know that a display of kindness – especially when captured by the cameras – is all put on for show, and doesn’t mean anything.
So in part, you could say that Dina Manzo was responsible for Teresa getting fired from the show. However, you’d be more accurate saying that it was Teresa’s own negligence, criminal activity, and complete disregard for the law that landed her in hot water. As a result, she’s lost her job, she’s lost her future, and she’s lost any chance she had at redeeming herself in the eyes of the public. Good riddance to one more desperate reality star, I’d say.
