Teresa Giudice Reveals Who She Bonded And Clashed With On ‘Real Housewives All-Stars’ Series And Says Bravo Viewers Will “See Me In A Different Light” During ‘RHONJ’ Season 11 Reunion!

Teresa Giudice shares details about the upcoming Real Housewives mashup series, which she participated in along with her sister-in-law and Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Melissa Gorga.

“I was so happy I was a part of it, and it was amazing,” she told Us Weekly. “I feel like everyone’s going to get to know more of who Teresa Giudice really is. All the other years I feel like I’ve been attacked, and that’s what happens I guess when you’re the OG. Everyone wants to take you down. But I feel like this trip was different and even the reunion, I feel like everyone is going to start to get to know the real Teresa. I always had to be in defense mode, and if people are coming after me, of course, I have to defend myself — anybody would.”

Giudice reflected on her past feuds with former RHONJ co-stars Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita while detailing why she feels like viewers don’t know her yet.

“I started the show being very happy, and then you see it, everyone coming after me, attacking me, trying to take me down. Like, all the seasons. It’s been me trying to defend myself year after year after year, from starting out with Caroline, Jacqueline — you want me to go down the line? Attack, attack, attack, and then all the legal stuff,” she explained. “If somebody’s coming after you and attacking you, you have to defend yourself. You’re not going to let them just trample all over you. When you’re on the top, everybody wants to try to take you down, and listen, nobody’s going to do that. Like my book says, Standing Strong — I’m always going to stand strong. Like, for instance, I’m on the top now. I’m over it all. Like, I’m done.”

Last month, a rep for Peacock officially revealed the cast for the upcoming series, which will stream later this year on the NBCUniversal streaming service. In addition to Giudice and Gorga, the cast includes The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore, The Real Housewives of New York City’s Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards, reported Bravo's The Daily Dish.

Giudice teased that she “had some words with Ramona” while shooting the show, despite noticing similarities between herself and Singer. “She does mix up her words like I do, and sometimes she says the craziest things. Like, [stuff] will come to her mind right away, and that’s what I do too, so I feel like we do have that in common, but it’s not going to be too much,” she told Us Weekly.

As for who she bonded with, Giudice noted that she considers Moore “a friend for [a] lifetime,” adding that she will always “have her back for life, forever and ever and ever.”

The two actually already had a connection before filming. “We did work together once, and she did say that when we worked together, we did bond. She did tell me. She’s like, ‘I felt connected from you ever since the first time I met you,’ and we talked. We got really close,” she revealed. “She lives in Atlanta, I live in [New Jersey]. It’s hard, but it was nice. It was great seeing her. It’s amazing how you can connect with someone, and then you see how it plays out on the show.”

Giudice predicted that fans will “see me in a different light” during the season 11 reunion of Real Housewives of New Jersey too. “I think it started toward the end of this season,” she told Us Weekly. “You have to understand who I am. I’m not a troublemaker. If I have something to tell you, I’ll tell you right to your face and that’s it. It’s up to you how you handle it. I just say it the way it is, but some people can take it, some people can’t.”

She added, “Maybe I’m going to start learning to not be so vocal and maybe take a step back. Just sometimes … like, I come from a good place, but some people don’t understand it. I guess you have to get to know me to see that I’m coming from a good place. Like, in life, we all get wiser and we’re all learning. We’re learning every day.”
