Teresa Giudice talks about feud with Jacqueline Laurita on 'Anderson Live' - See video
Teresa Giudice opened up about her ongoing feud with her "Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-star Jacqueline Laurita during her appearance on Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show "Anderson Live" on Wednesday, September 26.
Many viewers witnessed the two former friends relationship deteriorate over the course of the show's fourth season, hitting a breaking point during the September 23 finale of the season. Giudice told Cooper, in an interview that can be seen below, that the two are still at odds.
Laurita recently revealed that her son has autism and Cooper played a clip of Laurita on his show where she implied Giudice had not been supportive of her and her son.
Cooper asked Giudice why she did not reach out to her friend. Giudice had countered that she texted her support to Laurita and Cooper wondered why she didn't simply call her former friend.
"It's gone further than that," Giudice said. "If I show you the texts she sent to me, it's like if it keeps going, eventually I'm going to go to the cops because I want her to leave me alone. I did nothing to her."
"When I get texts from her, I get chills throughout my body," Giudice said of her current interactions with Laurita. "I haven't spoken to her in a year and I never reach out to her."
"We're at two different places right now," she added.
Giudice also touched on her longstanding feud with her other co-star Caroline Manzo. Manzo, 51, took issue with comments Giudice, 40, had made about her and her family heritage in the cookbook, "Fabulicious!: Teresa's Italian Family Cookbook," which was published in May 2011.
In clips shown from the show's upcoming reunion episode, the two go at it with each other after the show's host, Andy Cohen, read a viewer question that asked if Giudice thought Manzo was a good mother.
Giudice implied that Manzo's sons did not have jobs before starting their recent energy drink business venture called blk. Manzo began yelling at Giudice and Giudice made fun of Manzo's weight.
Cooper said he thought it was unnecessary for Giudice to attack Manzo so personally and questioned why she did it.
"At the reunion show I had four women attacking me. I did nothing to any of them," Giudice told Cooper. "I had to keep like defending myself and I'm tired of it."
"She was upset that I wrote about something about her in my cookbook. It was a joke. She said it hurt her. I said sorry," Giudice added. "What else do you want me to do?"
Part one of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion special airs September 30 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
