Gurrrrl, don't mess with Bravo!
Although, knowing Teresa Giudice, there's really no way to tell her what to do.
So it sounds like no matter what, she's got a bone to pick with the network because she's apparently feeling exploited by them.
Even though her legal mess is all over Real Housewives of New Jersey - and we're only ONE episode in - it seems Tre doesn't want it being the center of the rest of her life.
Bravo reportedly set up an interview with her and the New York Post, but things didn't go as she would've liked. An insider commented about how Tre felt:
"Teresa agreed to do a limited amount of press to promote the Real Housewives of New York. Bravo insisted that she do the interview with the paper. During the interview, Teresa felt the direction of it was negative, but the Bravo publicist did nothing to stop it, or get it back on track. Teresa felt the publicist should have done more to protect her, or stop the interview. Teresa was being absolutely professional [during the interview] and felt the reporter had another agenda. She was beyond upset about the way she was portrayed in the story, is disgusted by Bravo, and feels exploited by the network."
Although, the New York Post is reporting that she was actually upset about the color of dress chosen for the pics accompanying the article, and that Fabellini wasn't provided to her.
Those seem like pretty minor issues, but Teresa does have a lot on her plate right now. It's understandable that she's a bit on edge.
But when you're in need of money, you don't attack your money source…something she seems to need to learn as the source added:
"Teresa has been lighting up the publicity department’s phones and emails revealing how upset she is. It’s non-stop. Nobody knows what to do to make her happy."
Well, we suggest they start by sending her some Fabellini! Although, shouldn't she already have an endless supply at home??
