“Teresa Giudice has picked fame over her family and friends.”
Those are the candid words of Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa, who made it clear in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com that her reality show counterpart has her values completely mixed up.
“Every family has its issues but you don’t hit below the belt,” Joanna told Radar, criticizing Teresa’s actions. “She doesn’t need to be this low to make a name for herself. Everybody already knows who she is.”
Teresa has played a key role in accusing sister-in-law Melissa Gorga of once being a stripper, a move that has infuriated and alienated family members.
Joanna also has had her share of drama on the Miami show and it is continuing in real life as she grapples with her fiance’s flirtation with another woman.
“I found flirtatious emails between him and another woman,” she told Radar. “It was very tough for me. I never suspected.”
But Joanna says she leans on her family for comfort, a lesson not learned by RHONJ star Teresa, whose involvement in Strippergate with Gorga is now infamous.
“You don’t mess with family. Teresa took it a step way too far hitting below the belt with Melissa and the stripper thing,” Joanna said. “Everyone loves fame and money but you don’t do that to your family.
“I don’t know what Teresa is thinking but she’s lost herself in the world of fame. She’s scared of losing it so she’ll do whatever it takes to stay on top.
“There’s no reason to disrespect your family. I can’t even imagine doing that.
“I guess some people love fame too much.”
