AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider are having a war of words in season 9 reunion of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" which aired on Wednesday, February 20. Jackie made herself an enemy for Teresa after she clapped back at the latter's claims that women should be able to control their men by pointing out that Teresa's husband was in prison.
Calling the Bravo show "The Teresa Show", Teresa said to Jackie, "Anyone who goes against me, you see them here in this room anymore? No, they're not here anymore." The "Turning the Tables" author added, "I'm going to bring it, b***h. [So] come, come. I want you to come at me."
Jackie, meanwhile, wasn't planning to back down as she replied, "You're not going to win a war of words with me." She went on saying, "You have nothing. I'm up here and you're down here. … I lose brain cells talking to you."
At one point, Teresa fired back, "You think you know me so f***ing well, like, are you kidding me?" to which Jackie responded, "I don't want to know you, Teresa. You're not my kind of people," before adding, "You live a very sad life. You have zero that I aspire to, Teresa."
Teresa, though, noted that Jackie came to her book signing years ago. She accused Jackie, who joined "RHONJ" this season, a "stalker." She doubled down her attack, "You want to be me, thank you very much. That's why you've been following me for 10 years. ... You had an agenda!"
"She used to stand at my book signings. She's been following the show. She knows everything," Teresa explained to Andy Cohen. She also mimicked words Jackie allegedly told her when they first met, " 'I'm your biggest fan!' She said, 'I can’t believe I'm here, standing next to you and Melissa' the first time she met me!"
In her defense, Jackie responded, "I didn't used to stand at [her] book signings." She continued, "I was walking past a shoe store where there were about four people in line to get copies of Teresa's book. I was a fan of the show and I wanted to meet Teresa. So I took the picture with the kids."
Teresa didn't stop there. The mother of four kept ripping off Jackie by calling her "bully." She said, "She's clearly very threatened by me. I think she likes to bully people. I think she tries to scare people. As she alluded to throughout the years of the show, 'Talk to me like that, you don't come back.' I think there's people on Team Teresa and they're just going to do whatever they have to do and whatever they have to say to make Teresa happy. And badmouthing me makes Teresa happy."
Amid the heated argument, Melissa Gorga, who is both Teresa's sister-in-law and Jackie's friend, chimed in, much to Teresa's dismay. "I'm not going to even talk to her anymore," she said of Melissa. "Don't talk to me. Don't f***ing talk to me."
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion airs on Wednesday at 9 P.M. on Bravo.
