Did Teresa Giudice Honestly Think Bravo Wasn't Going to Air Joe's 'Mistress' Phone Call?

Teresa GiudiceI admit it, I felt bad for Teresa Giudice after I saw her super-evolved husband Joe talking on the phone with his alleged mistress in the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. And then watching her try to have sex with him afterwards -- and him rejecting her? Good Lord, was that all sorts of uncomfortable to watch. (And how about the next morning when he was pushing her face out of his when the two were in bed? Awk-ward!) But when I heard that Teresa "begged" Bravo not to air the episode, I still felt bad for her -- but I also thought: Um, yeah, see, it doesn't work that way. 

I think we can all agree that Teresa loves being famous. She seems to be on the cover of Us Weekly or Star or whatever -- on her own volition -- on a weekly basis. She always turns it on when the cameras are around, and never makes apologies for who she is/how she acts. She's created this famous persona and seems to be enjoying all the things that come with it for better or for worse. But when "the worse" is really bad, Teresa doesn't get to say "delete!" When you put yourself out there -- and make a living off of being, well, in the spotlight -- it's no holds barred. If the camera catches it, sorry, it's Bravo's for the taking. 

Teresa wrote in a blog post that she realized her "begging" was futile, and then went on to say that this is how it is in reality TV, etc. And that's respectable -- but it's also a bit of a pile of crap. She kind of has to take this route since Bravo didn't yank the episode.

In this same blog post, she also went on to talk about how she and Joe are doing well and nobody's perfect and their marriage is good, blah blah blah. So ... yeah. I guess you can say she has bigger problems than Bravo airing the episode.

Do you think Teresa should leave Joe? Do you feel bad for her?

They have proven that they are trash.

I do feel really bad for her...she's had her fair share of drama that she's created and I understand that but I don't think there is any excuse for a husband to say the things that he said about their wife. Who knows...maybe she acts the way she does because she doesn't have a happy home life. She may be trying to stir up drama so that nobody focuses on the other negative things going on around her. Kind of sad if you ask me.

How can you feel bad for her???  She's getting the bestest press on this!!!  and isn't that what she's alllll about!?  No, it's fun watching her back peddle and lie about how "good" things are right now.  The little girls are gonna be in therapy for years over the bad choices their mother chose.  Congrats... you have made a full fledged mess of their childhoods Teresa!  YOUR PArents must be soooo proud!

I'm sorry, but I don't feel sorry for her. I just hope people don't think that all Italians are trashy like this. We're not. We have our share of skanky people, but we're not all that way.

I think the two of them deserve each other...but what a classless bastard! Calling the moither of his children those names! Does he think its funny...he seems to laugh at inappropriate things...I hope he's proud of himself when someday his daughters see this...and they will.

Sign up for trash and trash you will get my friend. You had it coming big time... I am just raising my eyebrows wondering who is this lady with no taste whatsoever to sleep with potato-sac-Joe. Thought Teresa was the last of her species.

Really, who are we to judge her at all? Everyone makes their own choices, so she could change what she is unhappy about, but either way, we shouldn't judge.

   I didn't feel bad for either. She knew her mic was on and she also knew who ever he spoke to would see the pretend sex act she was pretending to have with him. BRAVO YOUR GETTING AS SLUTTY AS TERESA ...EVEN HER KIDS ARE AS NASTY AS SHE IS. THOSE KIDS SHOULD BE TAKING AWAY FROM THEM.
