RHONJ’s Caroline Manzo is crystal clear about where she stands with Teresa Giudice

Teresa Giudice loves her big hair and bling-bling, and she always talks, weird, screams whatever comes to her mind. She never shys away from a fight and professes that family is everything to her. So it was pretty shocking that her brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga, turned down Giudice’s wedding. However, given their penchant for brawls, Giudice and Caroline Manzo’s feud came as no surprise. They started Real Housewives of New Jersey as friends but became enemies when Manzo tried to play the peacemaker between Giudice and everyone else.

“Don’t talk to my family! You damn b***h!” Giudice yelled in Danielle Staub’s face during the season 2 reunion show. Giudice Rugby tackled Andy Cohen after he tried to intervene. “You piece of shit, you fucking bitch,” Giudice continued to yell as dust flew off the set. Manzo tried to calm Giudice, but the F and B bombs continued to explode.

Finally fed up with all the drama and theatrics, Manzo left The Real Housewives of New Jersey after season five. “The strain in my personal life was getting too heavy,” she told Life After Bravo. Cue several clips of Giudice yelling at Manzo. “It’s about your moral compass. It’s about how you live your life,” she said. Melissa recently told People that she and Joe are “done” with Giudice’s never-ending drama. And Manzo is crystal clear about where she stands with Giudice, too.

Caroline Manzo is definitely not Teresa Giudice’s biggest fan

Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice bumped into each other on Manzo’s last two seasons on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The women even engaged in an epic shoe fight during a vacation in Napa. “You’re lying to my face,” Manzo said to Giudice. “You are a disgrace.” During an interview at BravoCon 2022, Manzo was asked how things are with Giudice these days. “[Our relationship is] fantastic, thanks for asking; so great,” Manzo replied, her voice dripping with sarcasm.

Though Giudice regularly attacks Manzo and her kids, the former reality star said after they were asked to film a Super Bowl commercial together, she held out her hand with an olive branch. However, Giudice broke it in half and threw it on the ground. “They ask you to do a Super Bowl commercial together; you do,” Manzo said. However, not Giudice. At least initially, since she really knows how to hold a grudge.

Manzo shared that Giudice declined her dinner invitation to clear the air. She also refused to shoot the ad because Manzo had been friends with Kathy Wilkie and Melissa Gorga while filming RHONJ. “I really, really wanted us to be at our best as people and women, let’s try to overcome things,” Manzo shared. “I mean, who can say [a Super Bowl ad]?” Per Bravo, Giudice finally relented, though Manzo admitted to Andy Cohen that she only did it “for the money.”
