Teresa Giudice and her Real Housewives of New Jersey castmates have been in production on the upcoming 14th season of the Bravo reality series since August. But, according to Teresa, they haven’t all been following the rules of filming.
During a recent episode of her podcast, Teresa, 51, opened up about how her co-stars are violating the terms put into place by production while also sharing why she gets so upset — and revealing what happens when she breaks the rules herself.
“I guess everyone knows that we are filming … well I think it’s all over the place, because people are posting cameras,” Teresa began on Namaste B$tches, via Heavy.
In recent weeks, the ladies of the show have been seen attending Dolores Catania‘s charity baseball game (where Margaret Josephs was seen in an alleged argument with Jennifer Fessler), Jennifer Fessler’s birthday party, and more. And often, they’ve shared posts on social media in regard to the events.
But according to Teresa, she and her co-stars aren’t supposed to showcase the behind-the-scenes looks at what is transpiring between them during the season.
“They are posting – a lot of people from the cast are posting pictures with the cameras behind them. At least I try to be discreet, and I don’t do that, but other people on my cast want to make sure they put it out there that we are filming,” she explained.
Because she’s “old school in everything” she does, Teresa said she has refrained from sharing photos and videos that could potentially give away future storylines of the series — at least for the most part.
“I follow rules, I really do but when other people break them, then I’m like, ‘F*ck that, man. Why is it okay for them to break it and not me?’” she admitted. “So then I start and they’re like, ‘Oh my god, Teresa is breaking them – and Teresa never breaks the rules’ and I really don’t.”
“I really follow the rules, like I don’t, I don’t break the rules,” she added.
While Teresa may be following the social media rules of filming, she has made things a bit challenging for production due to her reported refusal to film with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
“Melissa is open to filming and talking with Teresa on camera, but Teresa is not,” an insider told Us Weekly earlier this month. “Producers are trying to capture other stories.”
“Melissa and Teresa still didn’t speak to each other,” the source continued. “The rest of the cast was working overtime to go back and forth to talk to both of them and have different conversations with each of them.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in 2024.
