Caroline (the most rational and amazing woman ever, if I do say so myself) questions this whole article from the start. Why didn’t Teresa come and say something to everyone about the article? Why wasn’t anyone given a heads up that she was going to be on the FREAKING cover of In Touch? Caroline calls Teresa “the worst kind of coward” and the “worst kind of person”. She doesn’t even want to start a conversation with her about the hurtful article because every time she tries to start a conversation with her about anything that is hurtful, it’s all for naught because Teresa is just oblivious.
Teresa is very good at playing victim and being clueless to whom she offends (even though she knows), but this time things are just getting taken into a whole new direction. I can’t imagine how one would handle being called out in a huge publication and insulted in a tabloid, but Jacqueline finally calls her out. She asks her what the deal is and why she did this.
Teresa kind of plays it off like she is trying to “clear up rumors” about things that have been spreading around about her life. Everyone else just assumes she is going crazy. I do not disagree with anyone in the Housewives of New Jersey who thinks Teresa is just going cray-cray. She has let the fame go to her head and she will grab any opportunity to be on the cover of anything, whether the content inside is true or false. This is all very sad. I wish Teresa the best and hope that she can figure out how to mend the relationship she has completely tarnished with her family and still provide financially for her children and husband. How can you believe this woman when she is telling you one thing and telling some huge tabloid publication something else? Only time will tell, I guess.
Everyone decides to ignore the issues surrounding this terrible tabloid article (totally planned and conceived by Teresa) to enjoy the marriage of Caroline’s brother, Jaime Laurita, and his partner, Rich Lane. (Can I say who much I loved this?) Civil unions for the win! Legally recognized! Can I get an AMEN!? My sister is gay, so when Caroline went on and on about how proud she was of her brother for coming out and finding someone to spend his life with, I cried for days. It hits home, people, but I digress.
I guess that I just wonder how anyone can keep their cool when they know that their picture (and not a flattering picture) and “quotes” are in this magazine along with a long, dragged out story of how Teresa is poor and people are supposed to sympathize with her issues. I guess when you live in the reality show business, anything goes.
