Let's take a stroll down memory lane, and think back on the moment we met Teresa Giudice in 2009. She seemed adorably clueless, as she fussed over her "juicy" husband and doted over her three daughters. We turned green with envy as we watched her shell out thousands of dollars (in cash) on furniture for her New Jersey home. Some fans even cheered her on during the show's infamous table flipping incident. Back then we loved Teresa, because even when she seemed oblivious to what was going on in the world around her, see seemed like a sweet gal, the type of person you would want in your corner.
But over the years, the reality star's reputation (and attitude) has taken a turn for the worse. She has gone from a loveable airhead to someone who seems to be unable to complete an articulate thought. What's worse, she has turned on her family and friends, and appears to be as trustworthy as a Ponzi operation.
First let's take a look at the reality star's recent stint on "Celebrity Apprentice". The Jersey native did not seem to have a mind of her own at any point during the show. She rarely came up with any viable ideas for tasks, and each week, she seemed to barely get by.
In this week's episode, Trump handed the celebrity contestant her walking papers after she failed to measure up as the project manager during the week's task. The star even admitted that her primary contribution to the task was "overlooking the whole thing." Another competitor stated "you just sit there, give her a rope and she hangs herself." We have watched Mrs. Giudice attempt to participate in weekly tasks, and speak on her own behalf in the boardroom, but watching her try to express a complete thought is like watching a dog try to catch his own tail.
On Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," her reputation has headed south, as now she is becoming known more for her snide comments against friends and family than for her flamboyant fashion sense. In what is one of the weakest defenses in reality TV history, The fashionista flipped out (pun intended) when her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, stated that Giudice's husband Joe spent time in jail. The source of her anger: Melissa referred to the slammer as "jail" instead of simply saying that he "went away". Additionally, her family and friends have become incensed about various comments the Bravo babe has made about them, including the insinuation that Gorga is a gold-digger, and various snarky comments in her cookbook.
An insider even reported that the mom of four has stolen business ideas from her former cronies, saying "Teresa knew what Jacqueline and Caroline were working on as far as business deals and Teresa went behind their backs and copied what they were doing…. in other words she stole their ideas to make money."
Fed up with the budding author's wisecracks, even her former pal, Jacqueline Laurita can't be in the same room with her anymore; and Jacqueline typically gets along with everyone! Over the years, Teresa Giudice has changed from a beloved Jersey princess to the queen of cattiness. Let's all hope she has a large PR team, as at this point the celeb needs some major damage control on her reputation. Teresa, come back down to earth, we miss our Jersey girl next door!
