Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo's fight reached a boiling point on Sunday when Manzo finally confronted Giudice for comments she made in her cookbook. The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" castmates have not spoken in one year, and Manzo says she could not be happier.
Giudice and Manzo's fight exploded onscreen during a trip to Napa Valley, when Manzo finally mentioned Giudice's "Fabulicious!" cookbook. In the cookbook, the mother of four writes that Manzo is "as Italian as the Olive Garden."
Manzo said she watched the tumultuous episode six times and "couldn’t find anything positive about it."
“The only thing positive about it was I finally said what I needed to say and I’m done. And that was a year ago,” Manzo told Celebuzz while discussing her feud with Giudice. “And I have not seen or spoken to Teresa since the reunion last year with the exception of the Bravo commercial – I was in the same room with her. My last words to Teresa Giudice were at the reunion last year. And can I tell you, it’s been a wonderful year.”
Don't expect a reconciliation any time soon. Manzo and Giudice, who have been featured on "RHONJ" since Season 1, have been at odds for far too long.
"There could be forgiveness if it’s asked," Manzo told Celebuzz. "I’m big enough to say that I was rude and obnoxious and very hard on [Teresa], which I was. But, that’s the level she brought me to. But, you still haven’t apologized for what you’ve done to any of us, not just me, to any of us. And until there’s a real legitimate apology, I’m not interested."
In an interview with Andy Cohen during "Watch What Happens Live" after Sunday's episode, Giudice didn't show any remorse over the fight that ensued with Manzo, whose sister, Dina, is her daughter's godmother.
"Caroline thinks she's better than everybody," she told Cohen. "She's definitely not better than me. What she says to me doesn't really bother me. Caroline has nothing on me. I don't know what's happening in her head. She's a very angry person."
Dina took Giudice's side in a blog post she wrote, entitled "The Truth!" Dina, who left "RHONJ" in Season 2, has been rumored to have her own problems with sister Caroline.
Giudice went to Dina seeking advice about the cookbook controversy. "She mentioned the drama with her and Caroline and I told her that if this is all about a joke in a book (and she assured me it was) that’s not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years," Dina wrote last October.
Giudice revealed that she is not speaking with any "RHONJ" cast members at the moment, despite many attempts to patch things up with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa.
"I’m not speaking to any of them," Giudice told Stacey Grenrock Woods of the Daily Beast. "I wish Caroline could actually say what I did to her, ‘cause I’ve done nothing to her. If I didn’t like her, I would’ve never put her in my book. It’s so funny to me how people are so calculated. I never say anything about any of them and all they do is speak about me. It’s like, really?"
Adding, "You know, we live in a crazy world, I have to say, Hopefully, God’ll just, you know, look after me, and hopefully protect me from these evil people."
She made sure to thank her fans for their continued support.
Thanks for watching the show everyone. Thanks again for the support.
