During a fight between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider on an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jackie tried to get Teresa to stop spreading rumors about her husband cheating — by comparing the rumor to those of Gia Giudice allegedly doing coke in the bathroom.
The rumor was made up by Jackie as an example to Teresa for how damaging they can be — but Teresa was appalled Jackie would mention her daughter.
Gia released a statement asking to be left out of the drama:
“Gia is a wonderful, smart, strong and beautiful human being and what was done to her tonight was wrong on so many levels. For a grown ass ‘I’m so so smart I’m lawyer’ woman to bring Gia’s name into an argument & place an accusation with such a weighted consequence is inconceivable,” Appian Entertainment’s Karianne Fischbach wrote on social media. “I cannot fathom what would [possess] someone to create a false narrative that could have severe consequences for the innocent party involved, a 19-year-old at the time who was in no way involved in anything. what the cast members choose to do to each other is the nature of the reality TV beast, this was to [SIC] far.”
