So much for family.
Teresa Giudice created a stink when her cousins Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri entered the room during the recent Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“When Kathy was on, Teresa made a huge scene and stormed off the stage,” reveals the source.
But the 42-year-old reality star didn’t stop there. “After Teresa left, she made Bravo production cut Kathy and Rosie’s segment down to ten minutes,” snipes the source, noting the two sisters were originally meant to have a lot more airtime. “Teresa pitched a fit, screaming that she would not return to the couch if Kathy and Rosie were present.”
Bravo accommodated Giudice’s demands “since the network does not want to lose any time with Teresa while they still have her before she goes away to prison.”
True to her word, Giudice returned to the set once Wakile and Pierri left.
Giudice has had issues with Wakile for a long time. “Let’s face it: When Kathy said, ‘Your father’s a coward and your mother’s a liar,’ you don’t forget that,” a source told RadarOnline.com last year.
And as RadarOnline.com also reported, Teresa wasn’t the only one to create a fuss at the Bravo taping. Dina Manzo had a meltdown involving her family feud with Jacqueline Laurita during the taping, too.
Although Manzo’s sister-in-law Laurita wasn’t at the reunion shoot, her daughter, Ashlee Holmes, a makeup artist, was on hand to do Wakile and Pierri’s makeup. When Manzo saw Holmes in the makeup room, she went ballistic, an insider told RadarOnline.com.
It turns out that Manzo and Giudice serving up so much drama may be a good thing. The source claims that besides the two blowups the reunion was “uninteresting and anti-climactic.”
