Teresa Giudice fires back at costar Caroline Manzo




The Juice* got bored today and asked all our Twitter followers who we should rip on today. The answer came from @HardRockinGirl, who was first to ask for The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice. And wouldn't you know it? She's fighting with one of the other housewives.

The 39-year-old writes in the introduction to her new cookbook Fabulicious that her costar Caroline Manzo "is as Italian as the Olive Garden," which made some waves on Sunday night's finale to the show. Giudice added that she is a "huge fan of Caroline Manzo, even if she is only one-sixteenth Italian, or whatever she is." Manzo was displeased, also because Teresa was dogging her son Chris' business ventures.

"My cookbooks are not 'bashing books,'" Giudice wrote on Teresa "They're fun and funny and me. If I meant any harm, I wouldn't have put a big, beautiful picture of her in there. You don't see any of Danielle Staub or Kim G. (Granatell) in there, do you?"

Of course, Teresa thinks the real reason is because of her success, but we'll let you read that on your own time. Our eyes are starting to glaze over.
