What did Danielle Staub say about Teresa Guidice's nephew that caused her to have a breakdown on Monday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion?
Guidice, 38, explains in her latest Bravo blog.
In April, Guidice welcomed a healthy and "beautiful" nephew (not Jacqueline Laurita’s baby; they aren't related).
When Staub, 48, accused Guidice of not acknowledging his birth, Guidice says she initially was confused.
"I had no idea what she was talking about because I WAS there [at the hospital]," she writes. "But then I realized what she was saying – that she had been digging around my extended family and trying to find dirt on me and defame them. And I just had it. I will not stand for that (or sit still anyway)."
Staub knows how to push buttons, says Guidice, and that remark did it.
"Who would sit back and let someone spew lies about their family on national television?" she asks.
"She spends her time running around town trying to dig up dirt about all of us. And then she spits it back at you when you least expect it," adds Guidice. "It’s ALWAYS lies, but it’s shocking to hear because she’s letting you know she’s talked to people in your life. It would make anyone crazy."
She apologizes for shoving host Andy Cohen — "my natural reaction to try and shake people off when they’re holding me back," she says — and insists she'd never lay a finger on Staub. Says Guidice, "She’s just not worth it, she’s sue happy, and it’s what she wants."
But she isn't sorry for screaming.
Says the mother of four, "I am a screamer. I can’t help it and I do own it. I’m just very vocal when I’m mad. I’m Italian and I live in New Jersey. We cook big, we love big, we laugh big, and we scream big. At least I do anyway. It’s who I am and I’m not going to change for anyone, especially not cameras."
