Famous Bravo felon, Teresa Giudice was on the Dr. Oz Show today. The last time Teresa was on Dr, Oz, he introduced her as inmate number 65703-050 and she strolled out in black pants and a top with wide black and white prison stripes. She took no accountability for any of her 41 federal crimes and played the victim. Let’s see how she does this time.
This time Teresa is sporting enough waist length weave for three people. It’s a lot of hair. Teresa starts of talking about her mother’s passing. She says that the eleven and a half months she was in prison, she lost time with her mother.
Dr. Oz move on and ask Teresa to talk about Joe’s drinking problem. She says that Joe loves making homemade wine. They have a wine making room in their house. She says Joe started drinking a lot when his dad passed away, they were also going through their legal problems and he drank to cope. She points out that Joe has been in prison for 18 months, so he’s been sober 18 months. In her book she talked about him being drunk the morning he turned himself in. Teresa said that there were so many people at the house the night before telling Joe goodbye. She said they did shots all night long. She said she was upset by all the company and really just wanted to be alone with Joe on his final night.
She says that Joe has done a lot of reflecting while in prison. He is trying to better himself and become a better person. He has apologized to Teresa but that apology didn’t come until after her mother died and she asked for the apology. Teresa seems really emotional. She says we will see her relationship with Joe play out on the show. Teresa is tearful about missing her mother. She says they would talk constantly on the phone everyday.
Dr. Oz goes back to Joe and sidles up to the big question. She says she was really mad when she was writing the book, especially after her mom died. She was really angry with Joe because she lost a year’s worth of time with her mother because she was in jail. She start to say, “For something I didn’t do…” but stops herself and says “my husband told me to sign the papers for two homes at a closing,” and she did. Then she talks about all the mortgage brokers and lawyers in the room, she didn’t think she was doing anything wrong. She always downplays what she actually did. She got super excited when she shared, “I had the best credit! Over 800!” Now she is building up her credit again. She went from tears to happiness over a credit score. That was really odd.
After the break, we get to the health portion of the interview. Teresa says that she always wanted three kids so after her first three kids, she was done. But then one day, Joe came home and said that he had heard about IVF and that you can pick the gender of your child. Joe wanted a boy. So Teresa just sort of ends the story with they tried IVF but it didn’t work. Dr. Oz says that there was a financial problem with the IVF as well, “which seems to be a recurring theme for you.” Zing! Teresa says that it was very expensive and when it didn’t work Joe refused to pay for the treatment. Teresa of course says she was encouraging Joe to just pay it because she didn’t even want it to get out that they had tried IVF. But Joe didn’t pay for the treatment. She says when she came home from being “away” she paid it off. She paid off everything. I am not sure that is true.
They end with Teresa showing Dr. Oz a yoga move. The entire show was weird. He said he was going to talk about divorce. He did not. He said he was going to talk about a medical issue that is currently having an impact on Teresa. He did not.
The only interesting thing to me was that Teresa seemed to be explaining away all of the anger she felt toward Joe that she outlined in the book as if things were better now. She didn’t say things were better now but she was pointing out that all the anger toward Joe was at the time she was writing and sort of implied it doesn’t apply today. The last time she was on the show was way more interesting.
