Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo used to be the very best of pals. However nowadays, the women don’t see each other as typically as they as soon as did.

Whereas showing on Carlos King‘s podcast on Tuesday, the 52-year-old Actual Housewives of New Jersey solid member defined her present standing with Dina, 52, as she addressed her absence at her August 2022 wedding ceremony to Luis Ruelas, 50, spoke of criticism towards her partner, and seemed again at her time on Bravo.

“[Dina] just doesn’t feel comfortable coming back to Jersey,” Teresa defined on the July 2 episode of Reality With The King.

As RHONJ followers will recall, Dina’s ex-husband, Thomas “Tommy” Manzo, 59, was accused of hiring a hitman to assault her present husband, Dave Cantin, in 2015. And through a separate incident, she and Dave have been assaulted of their residence.

“It’s scary for her cause of what happened and I totally respect that so that’s it… [But] we’re good,” Teresa insisted. “She just wants to keep her distance. She doesn’t want people to know when she comes to Jersey… Like her and [Audriana Giudice] text, we text.”

“And I totally respect it. I understand,” she continued. “At first I was upset that she didn’t come to the wedding but… it’s really damaging what happened to her, now I totally understand. You know, if I was her, I wouldn’t want to come back to Jersey ’cause it’s scary.”

Whereas there have been rumors suggesting that Dave and Luis had a falling out forward of Teresa’s nuptials that led him and Dina to skip the occasion, Teresa denied the report, saying, “She didn’t want to be filmed and it’s okay. And I was totally fine with it.”

As for claims that Luis isn’t proper for her and that he’s doubtlessly utilizing her, Teresa instructed that followers will see extra of the reality about her husband as season 14 continues.

“You need to watch the rest of the season to see how it plays out. And my husband took his company public the day before I met him, on the Nasdaq. So right there says it all. That says it all,” she declared. “My husband should have made me sign a prenup ’cause he didn’t make me sign a prenup. He obviously has more money than I do. We bought a $5 million home. He bought a home and put it in both of our names. He just showed me the type of man that he is, and not that I have to prove that to anybody, and I don’t. He treats my daughters like they’re his own.”

“I’ve never seen a man. Like, it’s hard to find a Luis Ruelas. It really is,” she added.

In the meantime, as she seemed again on her potential RHONJ regrets, Teresa admitted that she doesn’t at all times get pleasure from being featured on the sequence.

“I go back and forth with it. It is very toxic right now, but I guess this is part of my journey so you never say no regrets. I had to go through all this,” she reasoned. “[But] I’m still not enjoy… I guess there’s parts that I do enjoy, but I’m not enjoy, I’m not like loving it cause it’s too toxic.”

Teresa went on to tease her upcoming function on Home of Villains, suggesting that viewers will see extra of who she actually is on the E! sequence.

“I’m going to be on House of Villains. You know what, that was a fun show. And at first, I didn’t want to do House of Villains,” she shared. “I’m like House of Villains? Carlos, am I a villain? [But] I can’t wait for you to see the House of Villains. I think you’re really going to see the real Teresa on House of Villains.”

The Actual Housewives of New Jersey season 14 airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
