Caroline Manzo Responds To Teresa Giudice’s Comments After Tell-All Interview; Caroline Says Teresa “Has No Moral Compass” And Calls Her “Narcissistic” And “Delusional”

Caroline Manzo is responding to Teresa Giudice allegations that she’s a "rat" and that she lived a "crooked life" during her tell-all interview special, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Special Event: Joe and Teresa Unlocked.

If you recall, Teresa and Joe reacted to an old video clip of Manzo predicting that Joe would go to prison and Teresa would divorce him.

“It’s just so sad, I guess, like she’s led that crooked life,” said Teresa,. “Like, I’ve never led that crooked life. I guess she has and who she comes from and where she came from. Right back at her.”

“How could she predict that?” Teresa asked of Manzo. “Could she have anything to do with what happened to Joe and I? Is she a rat? With her saying that? Those words would never come out of my mouth, regarding anybody. Maybe [she called the feds]! Those words would never come out of my mouth.”

On Tuesday, Caroline responded to Teresa’s allegations on her son’s podcast, Dear Albie. “I left [Housewives] five years ago. Within those five years, my name has come up numerous times, in positive ways and negative ways as well. I don’t respond to any of it, ’cause that was then and this is now. I live a very quiet life, as my Instagram will show, and I’m a normal person, a normal housewife. I don’t live by what people think of me. However, there comes a point in everyone’s life when enough is enough,” she said, according to PEOPLE. “I’m at that point with her because I have heard over the years that she has slandered me numerous times on her live shows, numerous times to people that just go up to her on the street, in the press, on reunions. This is not the first time she’s made this claim. Those are big words. Those are very big words. So once in a while, you gotta take the bully, pull ’em up by the shirt, pull ’em up to your face and say, ‘This is the reality. This is life. I am going to clear things up for you.’ And that’s what I’m doing.”

“She has a narcissistic personality … I get it. I see through her,” she said. “She has no moral compass. She really doesn’t. She has said things to people that are completely fabricated.”

“My initial thing was, ‘What the F is she … what?’ ” Manzo said. “And then you have to laugh at somebody like that, because she is clearly grasping at straws. What’s my crooked life? I have a husband that has been busting his ass for the past 40 years, working 16-hour days six days at week at almost 60 years old. We just paid off our mortgage, congratulations to us. And guess what? We did it the old-fashion way, with a 20-year loan, and by blood, sweat and tears we paid it off. … She’s right. We couldn’t be more opposite. And that pleases me. So the irony of that statement is not lost on me, and I think she’s grasping at straws, and I think she’s delusional, and I think she’s trying to throw mud and hoping it sticks on any which wall that will catch it, but it’s not gonna work.”

As for being called a rat, “Did I miss a Godfather script somewhere? Who speaks like that?” Manzo joked.

“It’s not even worth me responding to, of course not,” she said. “First of all, I had no knowledge of anything they’ve ever done in their life, you know? At the time, Teresa had had an abundance of legal issues and it was all over the press, and the writing was on the wall that something was going to happen because the indictment was so big. So you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.”

Also on Tuesday, Manzo told Extra, “I haven’t seen nor spoke with Teresa in over five and a half years,” she said ahead of filming her son's podcast.

“That term is so archaic it’s just laughable … I don’t know why, I think it’s just a matter to have to deflect in her life that she is incapable of laying blame on herself or anybody around her, so she has to deflect,” Manzo said. “I think I am, in her mind, the easiest target, so go for it — whatever.”

Manzo also explained how she correctly predicated that the couple would one day have to serve jail time. “Yeah, but you don’t have to be a genius to predict that,” she said. “The writing was on the wall. You just have to look at the personality and, you know, look at the actions and everything.”

“I don’t have any special powers. I wish I did. I’d play the lottery,” Manzo joked.
