Teresa Giudice gets accused of making up cheating rumor in desperate bid to stay relevant on RHONJ
Teresa Giudice has been accused of making up a cheating rumor because she’s afraid of being fired from The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.
The 48-year-old reality star during the season premiere last week of RHONJ spread a baseless rumor she ‘heard’ that Jackie Goldscheider’s husband Evan cheated on her at his gym.
‘She’s being watched by the network and needed a story to stir the pot. She had zero proof [that he cheated] and made up the story because Bravo has been getting rid of original ”Housewives”,’ a source told Page Six.

The source added that Teresa was scared that she could be axed.
‘[She’s] too expensive and they can filter through different women. She’s desperately trying to stay relevant,’ the insider added.
Teresa has been on RHONJ since it premiered in May 2009 on Bravo.
Her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., commented on the ‘ridiculous’ allegation to Page Six.

‘The core principle of reality television is authenticity, and I don’t believe there has ever been a more authentic ‘Housewife’ than Teresa Giudice, and there never will be,’ said James, who was a regular fixture on the show while Teresa and her ex-husband Joe Giudice went through their financial fraud case.
‘She is without peer in what she and her family have shared with the cameras over the years. When you are as real and authentic as Teresa has been, you don’t need to pull stunts or manufacture story to be relevant and that is ridiculous for anyone to suggest otherwise,’ James added.
Teresa and Joe have daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and 12-year-old Audriana.

Joe moved to his native Italy while appealing his deportation after finishing his 41-month prison sentence in March 2019, and his third appeal was denied in April 2020.
He had never gained US citizenship despite living in the United States since he was a year old.
Teresa served 15 months in prison while Joe looked over their daughters before serving his own sentence.
