Viewers of Real Housewives of New Jersey were not happy with Jackie Goldschneider’s after she referenced a rumor about Gia Giudice, the 18-year-old daughter of Teresa Giudice, sniffing coke in the bathroom to make a point.

Gia’s aunt, Melissa Gorga, says she crossed the line:
“I think that it was terrible to bring in [Gia],” she told US Weekly. “It’s one thing when we’re talking about us, it’s another thing when we bring kids in. I never want to bring [up] a child — even if they’re 18, whatever, however old they are. I mean, I know Gia is 20 now. It doesn’t matter. All of our kids to me are always off-limits.”
Gia’s mom, Teresa, also blasted Jackie during an interview with ET:
“I think anybody that would say something like that about someone else’s child is disgraceful. It is. As a lawyer, not smart. Just saying. Not smart at all. She tries to act like she’s this person you could speak to, and she’s a lawyer and all this. A lawyer and being so smart, that was the worst analogy possible. And being a mom of four? Very bad move.”

Jackie denies she was spreading a rumor: “I wasn’t starting a rumor about Gia. I was giving an analogy. So, I don’t regret that because if I was saying something nasty about Gia, then I would regret it. But I was giving an analogy, which it was pretty clear to almost everyone.”
