Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice’s relationship explored

Both Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice were original cast members on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

In season 1 episode 1 the cast members are introduced and things seem peachy between the housewives, Caroline can be heard saying that she finds Teresa “hysterical“. But, as the show played out, Caroline and Teresa butted heads on more than one occasion.

As of 2022, the RHONJ haven’t been friends for years. Teresa is best friends with Caroline’s sister, Dina, but Dina and Caroline are no longer on talking terms.

Caroline Manzo talks Teresa on Dear Albie

Speaking on the Dear Albie podcast in May 2022, Caroline said that her “social media has gone insane” and that “there’s a hashtag ‘fire Teresa’“, adding “…don’t shoot the messenger, man.

After a podcast listener asked a Teresa-related question on Dear Albie, Caroline said that she “would get great pleasure… to go in and just knock the sh** out of her verbally and just put her in her place.

Caroline said that this was because she was “tired” of “certain things” and of Teresa using her “as a weapon to say that I was the one that spearheaded her IRS claim.

The former housewife said “sometimes you’ve got to smack the bully” but she would have to be paid a lot of money to go back on RHONJ.

Teresa has also called Caroline a “bully” in the past and has also now responded to the Dear Albie comments.

Speaking to TMZ, Teresa said: “She didn’t knock the s*** out of me the entire time she was on the show, that’s why I’m still there and she’s not… She’s promoting her son’s podcast so she talks about me because otherwise, no one is paying attention.”
