One more time, for the people in the back perhaps, ladies and gentlemen, Caroline Manzo has lashed out at Teresa Giudice.
A few weeks after trashing her former Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star as an awful narcissist, she's back for an encore.
In case you missed it, Caroline believes that her fellow Jersey housewife frequently flaunts the law and only cares about herself.
Not exactly huge leaps of reason.
Manzo went after Giudice once again this week at a Friday morning BravoCon panel that featured the following personalities:
- Jill Zarin from The Real Housewives of New York
- Jeana Keough from The Real Housewives of Orange County
- Adrienne Maloof from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
- Kim Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
- Kim Zolciak-Biermann from The Real Housewives of Atlanta
The gathering took place at Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom, and the main topic of conversation for Manzo was Teresa.
What else would it be?
Manzo, obviously, would tell you she isn't obsessed with Teresa, yet is quick to weigh in on her ongoing relationship struggles.
Referring to the satellite interview Teresa conducted with Andy Cohen and estranged husband Joe earlier this month, she says:
"[Teresa looked] completely detached."
"She looked almost, like I almost thought she was on like a couple of Xannies or something 'cause she was just like this [with her head slumped down] the whole time."
"And I don't blame her if she did, truthfully. It had to be a very difficult moment for her, so I give her that for doing it."
There's a backhanded compliment for ya, huh?!?
Manzo, who has been a harsh critic of Teresa for as long as we can recall, then made it sound like she was actually in this couple's corner.
"It made me very, very sad because I like them together," she continued.
"You know, there's so much that you guys don't see in a relationship that I saw."
"And I, to this very second, am hoping that he gets to come home, especially to his girls, 'cause he is a wonderful, wonderful father, and he loves them dearly."
Joe, of course, is residing in Italy at the moment.
He was forced to fly there after being released from ICE custody and is now awaiting word of his deportation appeal.
Assuming it gets rejected, Joe will never be allowed to live in the United States again and Teresa, almost inevitably, will file for divorce.
The reality stars themselves, Joe and Teresa, seemed resigned to this fact in that aforementioned joint interview.
"The marriage, to me, clearly looked broken. And that's okay, too, because that happens," Manzo said on Friday.
"Shit happens, guys, right?"
It's true. It really does.
Late last month, meanwhile, Caroline blasted Teresa on her son's podcast.
This came after Giudice said on Bravo that perhaps Manzo actually ratted them out to authorities back before they pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud.
Manzo wasn't about to let that remark go by unnoticed.
“She has a narcissistic personality," she said of Tre.
"I get it. I see through her,” Manzo said, explaining how she was able to predict the Giudices’ felonious fate all those years ago when she said Joe and Teresa would likely end up in the slammer one day.
Added Manzo on this podcast:
“She has no moral compass. She really doesn’t. She has said things to people that are completely fabricated."
Caroline, who left the Housewives franchise five years ago, concluded that she was not about to let Teresa's "nonsense" bother her.
She's very secure with who she is and where she is in life.
After going on and on about her rival, Manzo simply said:
There are much more important things in this world and this life that I have to fret over, that I have to worry about.
What she says/thinks about me means nothing. Right?
Because she doesn't hold a place in my world that I have to be concerned about her opinion of me.
So why bother? Why waste my breath?
