Teresa Giudice is responding to Caroline Manzo declaring she wants to verbally “knock the sh-t” out of her.
After Caroline appeared on an episode of son Albie Manzo‘s podcast, Dear Albie, which was titled “Caroline Manzo, Out for Blood,” and targeted her as a “bully,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member suggested Caroline is all talk before accusing her former co-star of using her for publicity.
“She didn’t knock the sh-t out of me the entire time she was on the show, that’s why I’m still there and she’s not,” Teresa told TMZ on May 26.
On Albie’s podcast, Caroline said she was tired of Teresa suggesting she turned her and her now-ex-husband Joe Giudice into the IRS, which ultimately resulted in both parties spending time behind bars. As RHONJ fans may recall, Teresa previously accused Caroline and Jacqueline Laurita of alerting the IRS to fraud committed by her and Joe.
“I would get great pleasure, fans, community, to go in and just knock the sh*t out of [Teresa] verbally and just put her in her place,” Caroline stated. “I’m tired of certain things. I am tired of her opening her very uneducated mouth and using me as a weapon to say that I was the one that spearheaded her IRS claim.”
Caroline went on to accuse Teresa of being “so obsessed” with her, and she labeled her a bully.
“If you are so obsessed with me, I am more than happy to come and answer your claim… Sometimes, you gotta smack the bully. I am more than happy to go smack the bully,” she noted.
But according to Teresa, Caroline only brought her up on Albie’s podcast in an effort to get clout.
“She’s promoting her son’s podcast so she talks about me because otherwise, no one is paying attention,” Teresa explained.
And as Teresa also mentioned, Caroline was perfectly cordial to her when they filmed their Super Bowl commercial in December 2019.
“In person, she was hugging me. On her son’s podcast, she wants to fight me,” Teresa stated.
Teresa and her Real Housewives of New Jersey castmates are currently in production on the series’ upcoming 13th season.
