“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is in the midst of a heated season on her hit Bravo series, where she appears to be battling all the of her Garden State sisters week after week, but the reality star stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, where she set the record straight on her reported marital woes.
Teresa’s husband, Joe, has been the subject of numerous tabloid stories, which have claimed he’s stepped out on his table-flipping New York Times Best Selling author wife – something she adamantly denies.
“Are you a 100 percent positive that big Joe is for you and only you?” Billy asked.
“Yes, yeah, he’s amazing… No one has come forward to say anything,” she told Billy and Kit Hoover. “The last picture that was taken with him and a woman was my makeup artist and I was 10 feet away. She was dancing with Joe and I was dancing with her husband.”
“When he goes out, or you’re going to be gone for a long time for a trip, does any part of you ever wonder?” Billy asked.
“No, not all. We trust each other,” the 40-year-old Bravo star stressed. “He’s not the type of guy that has to hold my hand. He trusts me, I trust him. We give each other room to breathe.”
As for the rest of the drama in Teresa’s reality TV life – mainly her ongoing ups and downs with her brother Joe Gorge and his wife Melissa – it’s something the mother of four says she didn’t think would play out for the cameras.
“When I signed up to do the show it was with friends and strangers. I never signed up to do a show with family,” she said. “My family was brought on and I didn’t know about it.”
Though she didn’t outright say that her sister-in-law Melissa was the source of her problems with her brother, Teresa took the opportunity to take a jab at her.
“My father said, ‘You’re brother and sister when you’re under my roof. When different blood comes in, things change,’” she said, recalling her father’s words. “Things kind of changed after [my brother] got married. [But], I welcomed [Melissa], when she first came in [and] loved her.
“Why are they are targeting you?” Kit asked, referring to her co-stars.
“You tell me,” the author of, “Fabulicious! Fast & Fit,” said, adding, “I don’t think I’m the villain”
