Is it because Teresa is more successful? She’s more stylish and has more money? Read on to find out why the other housewives HATE her!
After battling bankruptcy, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice‘s successful business ventures are on track to digging her family out of financial ruin — and her RHONJ cast mates aren’t supporting her! Instead, a source tells In Touch magazine that Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga are dealing with their own financial problems — and seeing Teresa doing better is driving them insane with jealousy!
During the Oct. 16 reunion, Caroline slammed Teresa for her financial problems when she herself is battling her own crisis. “She and her husband have big credit problems, and they’ve mortgaged the hell out of The Brownstone [the Manzo's event space],” a source close to Teresa claims. The Manzos are also dealing with two other situations: a scandal surrounding Caroline’s husband and a lawsuit against her sons.
Caroline has constantly been negative about Teresa’s cookbooks, products and appearances. “It’s sad that Caroline is trying to attack my livelihood,” Teresa told the magazine.
Jacqueline is also jealous that Teresa can afford a certain lifestyle when she’s facing money troubles. “I’ve seen her husband Chris’ credit cards declined numerous times,” admits the source.
An insider believes that Jacqueline sold a photo of Teresa’s husband Joe out with another woman, as a way to get revenge against Teresa.
And to top it all off, Teresa claims that the only reason that Melissa married her brother is for his money. “We were out to dinner with a few other couples,” Teresa says of an incident that took place early on in Melissa and Joe Gorga‘s marriage. “She got a little buzzed, and she said she didn’t like him when she first met him. ‘But then,’ she says, ‘I saw his house.’”
