Teresa Giudice on Housewives Reunion: "It Was a Normal Reaction"
Does Teresa Giudice have any regrets about losing it on Danielle Staub during Monday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion?
"Not at all," she told UsMagazine.com Wednesday at the opening night of My Big Gay Italian Wedding in NYC. "Danielle brought something up that had nothing to do with the show. I just told her, 'Do not bring up my family.' When she did, it just got heated really fast."
After Staub, 48, claimed Giudice, 38, didn't acknowledge the birth of one of her nephews, Giudice jumped off the couch and screamed two inches from Staub's face. In the process, she aggressively shoved host Andy Cohen.
"It was a normal reaction in that situation," Giudice told Us.
She said she would never lay a finger on Staub.
"I know that's what she wants," she told Us. "If I wanted to do it, I could have done it. But I didn't because that’s not my style."
Asked if she needs anger management classes, she simply laughed.
Caroline Manzo said she was "shocked" by Giudice's outburst, but she told Us her castmate "definitely had her reasons for doing what she did. I certainly don’t fault her, that was how she felt."
