Teresa Giudice: ‘Bitch’ Sofia Vergara should be nicer because she’s an immigrant

Lea Michele and Teresa Giudice leave WWHL

Sofia Vergara is a big deal. She’s been the highest-paid woman in television for years, she has several lucrative businesses, she’s beyond rich and she’s easily one of the most popular women in North and South America. Teresa Giudice is not a big deal. Teresa got out of prison around Christmas 2015 and ever since, she’s been just as trashy and dumb as always. She’s still on Real Housewives of New Jersey too, in case you missed that. Anyway, Teresa and Sofia were somehow invited to the same event. And Teresa claims that Sofia was a complete “bitch” to her and now Teresa hates Sofia. Also: Teresa thinks that because Sofia is an immigrant, she should be nicer. Oh, this is going to be good.

Teresa Giudice called Sofia Vergara a “bitch” in a rant Tuesday about her experience meeting the Modern Family star – and said that Vergara should be nicer because she’s an immigrant. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was appearing at a “Housewives Reality Check” event alongside her RHONJ castmates Siggy Flicker, Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub in Mohegan Sun, Connecticut, when she popped off on the Hollywood star — whom Giudice named as her “worst celebrity encounter.”

“I can’t stand her, sorry,” Giudice said, in video captured by fans and published by TMZ. “I hate to say that, because I’m Italian, she’s Colombian. She has an accent, she has more of an accent than me. You would think that she would be nice — she’s an immigrant!” Giudice, 45, was born in New Jersey to parents who emigrated from Italy.

She went on to say that the two met backstage at an event. “We’re in the green room and my publicist from Bravo was like, ‘You’re going to run into Sofia so you’re going to take pictures together,’ ” Giudice said. ” ‘Alright, that’s fine.’ I never ask for a picture because I’m so not like that. I don’t care.” When they did go to take the picture, Vergara, 45, posed in front of Giudice, the RHONJ alumna claimed. “She didn’t want to take a picture,” Giudice said. “And I was just like… ‘I didn’t even do anything.’ And I was so mad at myself because I was like, ‘Bitch, I don’t even want to take a picture with you!’ ”

Afterward, Giudice’s makeup artist Priscilla DiStasio overheard Vergara allegedly say “Why’d you make me take a picture with that woman?”

“Priscilla heard it and Priscilla’s freaking out,” Giudice said. “I can’t believe that bitch said that, I can’t stand her!”

[From People]

If you were Sofia Vergara, wouldn’t you wonder why someone asked you to take a photo with Teresa Giudice too? I’m not clear on a few things. One, do we know if Sofia actually knew that Teresa is a reality-star/Real Housewife? Sofia could have honestly been asking “why did I take a photo with that woman, who is she?” Two, I hope that Sofia stands in front of everybody now whenever she poses for photos. That will make the Golden Globes extra fun in January!! Three, why exactly should Sofia be “nice” because she’s an immigrant? I don’t get the logic there – like, Sofia should be grateful that a natural-born American citizen deigns to pose for a photo with an immigrant?

Anyway, E! News had an exclusive follow-up, in which a source says Sofia doesn’t give a f–k about any of this and: “This is such nonsense. Those two shouldn’t even be in the same category.” Teresa also doubled-down on the “immigrant” stuff, telling Us Weekly: “I was disappointed and hurt in the way she treated me…I found it to be very rude and condescending given the fact that I had just met her, and I wasn’t the one asking for the photo. I figured that because we both shared very humble upbringings with families that emigrated to this country, she would have had more humility.” I love it when someone who has gone to prison for dozens of counts of bank, mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud gives an immigrant a lecture on respect and humility. It’s super-classy.

    Guess somebody wasn’t getting enough attention…

    • whatWHAT? says:

      and is jealous that a prettier, more successful (and one who has actual talent) woman didn’t know who she was.

      I suspect that the immigrant nonsense is along the lines of “she should be nice because we ALLOW her to stay in our country”. typical xenophobia.

      • Boston Green Eyes says:

        And coming from an Italian-American is quite rich. I watched a documentary about Ellis Island and how after WW1, America limited the amount of immigrants from Italy, Poland, Russia, etc. The Americans at the time were REALLY racist in regards to those groups at the time.

        I am Polish-American, so I was like, wow, if my grandparents hadn’t arrived before WW1, I wouldn’t be here right now!

      • Asiyah says:

        That’s exactly what it is, whatWHAT.

      • Moon Beam says:

        My grandparents came from Poland after WWII and my great grandparents came from Italy before WW1. Italian Americans that live in Jersey and Long Island (I’m using my own family and family friends as examples) can be very racist and xenophobic. Lots of them (including my dad and step mom) love Trump. The fact that Italian’s were called wops (white on paper) and discriminated against is kind of ironic, but the area of Jersey she is from is notorious for that behavior. I’m not at all surprised that idiot would be xenophobic.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        yeah, it’s a “know your place, FOREIGNER” slur.

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        This lady was born in USA, not in Italy. I struggle to see how she could have an Italian accent. She’s a xenophobic American, not an immigrant.

        And I wish she could stop even saying she’s Italian (even if she legally might be, as second-generation Italian immigrants can apply for a passport) because, as an Italian, I am deeply offended that someone this trashy could have originated in my same country.

        Thank God we got rid of your ilk Mrs Giudice, and very sad for the Americans who have to bear your presence.

      • Josephine says:

        I in no way wish to defend this woman, but I took her comment another way.

        I thought she meant that she expected some sort of comradery because they were both new-ish to the country. A first-generation immigrant can still feel very much like an immigrant.

        Just saying that her comment didn’t necessarily mean that she thought Vergara should be grateful. It could be read different ways.

      • Enough Already says:

        Just because TG is a crass idiot doesn’t mean we have to misinterpret what she said. She wasn’t slamming immigrants. She was (falsely) claiming to ge one lije Vergara and saying the actress should becmore gracious due to her overwhelming success as an immigrant. As I stated below it was a shameless, reaching, self-serving attempt to align herself to the mega-star.

      • Selena Castle says:

        SilverUnicorn. you are so right! When I watched this show I was amazed that they were claiming to be Italian. Particularly when they don’t even know how to pronounce their own name correctly. So strange to me.

      • Bridget says:

        I can’t believe I have to say this, but Juicy Joe isn’t even an American. They’re not “claiming” to be Italian, she’s married to an Italian citizen, and she’s only 1st generation American. There’s a ton of stuff to hassle Teresa for, we don’t need to come up with extra.

      • FLORC says:

        She can kiss my tax paying American nationalized ass

      • jwoolman says:

        Selena- it is common for Americans to alter the pronunciation of their family name. It doesn’t mean they are stupid. Different languages use different sounds and so the original name really has to morph into something more easily pronounceable by native speakers of US English. Names were also commonly changed by officials when going through Ellis Island when many immigrants were illiterate.

        If she were to pronounce her name the Italian way while speaking in English, people would think she was being pretentious. She’s pronouncing her name correctly for the USA. If she were speaking in Italian to other Italians, she might pronounce it differently.

        My dissertation adviser had a Russian name (his parents were immigrants) that people were always mispronouncing and so he had to keep correcting them. He didn’t use a true Russian pronunciation, but the accent was on the second syllable and people kept wanting to put it on the first syllable. Drove him nuts. His brother gave up and started pronouncing his name with the accent on the first syllable….

    • Crystalia says:

      Exactly. I’m not a Sofia fan per se, but she was adorable in Big Trouble, and I’ve loved her as a comedy actor ever since. And let me get REALLY petty right now, because I had a morning shot of vodka and I’m really annoyed by this nasty person insulting a hardworking, successful woman: If Sofia is a bitch for being annoyed/disgusted at having to have a photo taken with a convicted criminal (unfortunately no conviction for her criminal application of eye makeup – yikes) then I aspire to be even bitchier.

    • minx says:

      Team Sofia.
      And Sofia actually has a forehead 😂😂😂

    • Lilly says:

      Yep. She has to use the name of someone with talent who is actually well-known to get attention and then use the immigration dog whistle to get those “nationalists” on her side.

    • DesertReal says:

      That and the fact that Teresa’s habitual offender husband IS AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT who is likely going to be imported after he serves his prison time.
      The hypocrisy of this bitch…is beyond.

  2. Shannon says:

    I can honestly say that if it weren’t for this site, I doubt I’d know who Teresa Giudice is. She seems really annoying and needs to take several seats.

    • boredblond says:

      Same here–never seen any of the ‘housewives’ shows, and I get the feeling I haven’t missed much

    • whatWHAT? says:

      right?! you made your fame as a tacky, low-class “housewife” on a reality show. sitdownandshutup.

    • lucy2 says:

      I only know her from this site, and because their “beach house” was in my town. The “beach house” that was several miles from the actual beach, and was foreclosed on.

    • Kitten says:

      Same. Only know her from this site and only remember her because, jail and no forehead.

      • Pandy says:

        LOL re no forehead. It’s SO TRUE!!!!

      • Chrissy says:

        Seriously, her hairline is freaking me out. The less said about the make-up the better too. By the way, how dare she look down her nose at Sofia. Sofia is living her American dream without being a whiny, untalented convicted felon with a loser jailbird husband to boot. Teresa needs a little reality check. She’s a joke.

    • holly hobby says:

      Teresa who? Seriously I never watched a housewife show. I knew her from this site because she and her hubby looked gross and tacky.

  3. BlueSky says:

    That’s rich coming from a convicted felon…

  4. Lucy says:

    LOVE the picture of Sofia you used, like “bye, bitch”. Also, it’s true they’re not in the same category. Sofia is a working actress, Teresa is a con artist.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Not only that difference, but she’s nice,as is the whole cast of the show (not something I think someone would be able to say about any of the RH shows, from what I gather). Modern family used to tape their school scenes at the elementary school I taught at in Mar Vista. As a “thank you” for taking over our auditorium and Teachers’ Lounge, they let us grab lunch at their catering trucks, and peek in on filming. Everyone on set (crew and actors) were *very* nice to us.

      So yeah, not buying what the Con Artist is selling. Someone just wants more attention.

      • TQB says:

        That’s such a nice story!

      • FLORC says:

        I’ve heard so many similar accounts regarding the MF cast. I can’t say I watch the show. Not really able to find the time, but the cast and crew have always appeared to be lovely.

        TG is thirsty

  5. swak says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong. but when this all first started there wasn’t there talk that her husband could be deported? What established star, as Sofia is, would want a picture with ANY Real Housewife?

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      He will be deported. He is not a US citizen, and the federal offenses he committed render him deportable and ineligible to return to the US again.

    • Nicole says:

      Not talks…will. As soon as his sentence is over he’s back to Italy.
      Also talk about class you defrauded the government. That’s not even touching the crap behavior from the show (including against her in law for daring to be on her show)

    • swak says:

      Thanks for the info. Don’t really keep up with Real Housewives (any of them). Just ironic that she talks about Sofia being grateful because she’s an immigrant and shouldn’t be a b!tch when her husband (who is an immigrant also) has done much worse.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yup. Probably the best “advice for immigrants” is to not commit federal crimes that will lead to you being deported. That’s a little more important than being “nice”.

      • jwoolman says:

        He actually has the same problem as the Dreamers, except he is a legal immigrant (green card): his parents brought him here when he was a baby, so like the Dreamers culturally he really is an American and he didn’t have a choice.

        He probably 1) never thought he would get caught and punished for his financial crimes and 2) never thought about the possibility of deportation because he feels like an American. If he had just taken the time to complete the citizenship process (as his parents eventually did), he at least wouldn’t be facing deportation (which is going to be hard on his family).

        It also would be better for him to stay in the US if he is required to pay restitution. It will be difficult to enforce that if he is in Italy.

    • Moon Beam says:

      He will be and he is a big slime ball. These idiots are “local celebrities” in Jersey. I prefer the Mob Wives women lol.

  6. Rapunzel says:

    Teresa is just pissed Sofia didn’t know who she was.

    • Suzanne says:

      And that Sofia is drop dead pretty with a body that puts Theresa’s to shame! Great hair…smile…figure and a gorgeous husband who isn’t in prison..or being deported when he’s released. SNAP!

  7. Neelyo says:

    She’s always been a horrible, garbage person with awful, bigoted views. I wish they’d keep her in the pokey.

    These Real Housewives are always upset when people who actually did something to achieve their success don’t want to be seen with them.

  8. Nev says:

    Have a seat trick. She didn’t want a picture with you. Please.

  9. Enough Already says:

    Teresa is as clueless and classless as they come but I believe it went down the way she claimed. I can see Vergara playing the queen with the peasants. Imagine what she says about meet and greets with fans in private. Team no one.

    • Chingona says:

      Sofia is actually a very nice person. I met her before she became big in America. She has been known in the Hispanic market for a long time. I also know several people who work at The Breakers where she had her wedding and she was super nice to all the people who worked there and all her guest seemed to adore her. She is a very hardworking and genuinely nice person, just because she didn’t want to take a picture with a table flipping greedy felon housewife does not mean she is horrible. Also why are we to believe said housewife who lied to financial institutions and the government just so she could buy her tacky crap.

    • Luca76 says:

      Sophia doesn’t owe a picture to this person. It’s not like taking a picture with a fan. She obviously doesn’t want to be associated with RH brand and it’s obvious why.

      • ELX says:

        I’m surprised SV’s publicist didn’t object to a picture with a two bit grifter and convicted criminal. I’m a regular person and I wouldn’t want to be seen with that woman.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      I think Sophia knows that she is famous and rich because of her fans. Never hear a bad fan interaction with her. But how many people want to pose with a Real Housewife who is best known for being trashy. I’m a nobody but would be embarrassed to be caught dead posing with anyone from the RH franchise. They are know for accomplishing nothing. My friends would roll their eyes.

      • jc126 says:

        Yes, I think Sofia knew TG was connected to that sleazy show – or that TG immediately told her who she was – and Sofia didn’t want to pose with such a sleazy character.

    • Enough Already says:

      Duly noted and I am not defending Teresa. I simply believe it went down the way she said. I also think Vergara didn’t know who Teresa was at first which makes the alleged cattiness worse, imo.

  10. darkladi says:

    I’ve never been here for Sofía but Teresa Greedydouchy needs to have several seats

    • Nancy says:

      Same here. Way back when I watched the NJ housewives. I saw the episode where she flipped the table cursing with her filthy mouth with her kids in the room. She is such trailer trash, she and her let’s take turns in prison husband. I know less about Sofia, but from now on I am her fan.

  11. Mia4s says:

    I have no idea who this woman is, but this headline intrigued so I clicked and now I know who she is…xenophobic trash.

    • Enough Already says:

      She’s trash but not xenophobic trash. Xenophobia is an intense mistrust or dislike of foreigners. Teresa was attempting to draw a comparison between them because they are both immigrants, more or less. She was insinuating that people who have been fortunate enough to achieve success in America should be a little more humble and gracious. Hilarious, I know, but there it is.

      • Izzy says:

        They are NOT both immigrants. Giudice was born in New Jersey to immigrant parents. Giudice went on to commit tax fraud and evasion against the country that let her parents in and gave them all the opportunity to build the life they had – and that she threw away.

        Vergara, on the other hand, is an immigrant, who came to this country, worked hard, made lots of money, and – going by the fact that her financial status is widely reported and the IRS hasn’t busted down her door – pays her damn taxes.

        Kind of makes Giudice’s entire hissy fit more hilarious.

      • Enough Already says:

        I agree but wanted to point out that TG was not being xenophobic. Her dumb ass was trying to shoehorn herself into the immigrant category to make a point – but not a xenophobic one. Rather she was trying to draw parallels between herself and an A-lister.

      • Ladidah says:

        @Enough Already, I think Teresa is a known Trump Supporter, which would make her xenophobic in my book? from when I watched Real Housewives when I was sick, Teresa likes to play dumb as well as the victim. And she is also actually dumb.

  12. Relli80 says:

    She’s used to people kissing her ass and she met someone who didn’t care.

  13. Joss RED says:

    OMG, I can totally imagine Sofia asking someone next to her: “who’s that hairy puta anyway?”

  14. Eliza says:

    She should be nicer considering she’s a felon.

    I thought Teresa was very proud of her italian roots (her parents are immigrants!!!), I guess that’s just as fake as her accounting books.

  15. I'mScaredAsHell says:

    Isn’t her husband an immigrant who will be deported once he gets out of prison?

  16. Lorena says:

    Teresa’s husband is also an immigrant that will likely be deported after his prison sentence -_-
    Hypocritical AF!

    • jwoolman says:

      Apparently yes, he’ll be deported once he completes his prison sentence unless he gets a break. I hope his parents kept up his Italian. He was just a baby when they brought him here. For some reason they never went through the citizenship process for him, although later his parents became citizens.

  17. lisa says:

    the felon with the cro magnon hairline is ignorant trash

    “she has more of an accent than me”

    not sure why she even has an accent since she is from here (since she made that distinction over and over)

    • Pansy says:

      Came to day the same thing about the accent. Uh, you were born and schooled in America. She wasn’t.

    • Serene Wolf says:

      Omg I shouldn’t be laughing at the Cro Magnon bit… 😂

    • D says:

      I was just going to ask about that, so she was born and raised in America…she’s American not Italian. I friend of mine is Italian – as in Italian citizen born and raised and she tells me that it’s a pet peeve for Italians when Americans call themselves Italian, when they usually don’t even speak the language. She said that when Italian-Americans visit Italy, Italians will consider them American only.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I can’t stand her. Just to be clear. But her parents are immigrants, so she is a first-generation Italian-American. Most likely she has a lot of relatives there. But some people say that and they are barely half but only claim the Italian part.

      • Josephine says:

        No offense, but your friend doesn’t speak for the entire country. I’m first-gen and consider myself both Italian and American and have faced no hostility whatsoever from any Italian friends or relatives who know that I also consider myself Italian. At least from where my family comes from (Veneto region), people are thrilled if you want to identify yourself as Italian. I’m sure it varies from person to person, and maybe town to town, but let’s not spread the idea that Italians living in Italy think they are the only ones who can identify themselves as Italian.

      • D says:

        @Josephine As I said , she told me that the pet peeve is when Italian-Americans call themselves Italian, when they say “I’m Italian” and not “I’m Italian-American”, especially when they so often don’t even speak the language. I didn’t say anything about facing hostility, just that they view Italian-Americans as American. There are apparently a lot of videos on the subject of how Italians view Italian-Americans on youtube. Basically (her words) if your parent(s) are from Italy but you were born in America -then you can call yourself Italian, but if it was your grandparents (or great grandparents) who immigrated from Italy to America – then you should call yourself Italian-American and not Italian.

      • Josephine says:

        @ D – Just stating a different view. I feel perfectly justified and happy calling myself Italian. Just plain Italian, and not Italian-American. And I know people in Italy who are just fine with that, youtube videos aside. I am Italian. That is my heritage, my people, my ethnicity. I am also American. That is my upbringing. I am proud of both, and I think both are correct. I think the idea that Italians have a “pet peeve” concerning folks born to Italians in the US calling themselves Italian is just not correct. Sure, some probably do, but my guess is that most simply don’t care.

        I totally get not wanting Teresa to claim herself as Italian. Or American. I don’t think anyone is keen to be associated with her.

        But I don’t think that we need to put people in neat little buckets and claim exclusivity on particular identities.

      • jwoolman says:

        It’s common for Americans to refer to themselves as Irish or Polish or whatever even if their ancestors came here generations ago. If they’re a mix, they might say they are half German and half Italian, or 1/4 Polish and 3/4 Irish. Or they might just name all the ethnicities they are aware of without trying to do fractions.

        Not everybody is into constantly hyphenating themselves. I never call myself Irish-American. If I’m talking about my ancestry, I just say Irish. There is definitely no commonly accepted rule based on how many generations away you are from an immigrant. That may be someone’s personal rule, but it really isn’t a general rule.

        I think hyphenated designations tend to show up in names of organizations and such more than in common speech. We all know we’re also Americans by birth and culture and typically don’t feel any great need to remind people of that.

    • jwoolman says:

      I don’t think Teresa has an Italian accent, although if people grow up in a neighborhood with a lot of immigrants and their children – it’s not uncommon to have traces of the Old Country in their speech. Certain American regional accents actually originate from that fact, they are influenced by the language spoken by the people who originally settled there. There’s a Scandinavian influence in certain areas, for example, and there’s a legitimate “Hispanic” accent here in the US for native-born Americans who grew up in areas with a large Hispanic population where both Spanish and English are commonly spoken. Their accent in English clearly is influenced by Spanish, which has a crisper pronunciation of vowels and consonants than many other American accents.

      My uncle and his parents were born here but he grew up in an Irish neighborhood and had a bit of a brogue. That was a common accent for the town, since there were many Irish immigrants and as native speakers of English, they influenced the speech of neighbors who came from non-English-speaking countries. My uncle said that all the Polish kids in the adjacent Polish neighborhood spoke with a distinct Irish brogue also – they spoke Polish at home with their immigrant parents, but English on the street and in school and so picked up the brogue from the Irish kids.

  18. amanda says:

    I just want to see the photo. It seems reasonable to ask why you were made to take a picture with someone if that person has no interest in posing with you. I don’t think that is rude. Maybe I’m just rude…

  19. LittlefishMom says:

    Someone is throwing all of her toys out the pram. Teresa thinks quite highly of herself.

  20. lightpurple says:

    I have met Sofia, her husband, son and several more of her family members. They were seated next to us in a restaurant when they were here for her son’s graduation from Emerson, what for them was clearly a joyous family event. And she was absolutely lovely and charming to everyone around. Whoever this Teresa person is, she can keep her stupidity to herself.

  21. Reef says:

    lololol. What in the world does Sofia Vergara being an immigrant have to do with her not taking a pic with Teresa? We really are in Trump’s America.

  22. Svea says:

    Her husband is an Italian citizen who is in prison for fraud. Not exactly the kind of immigrant that is welcome. What a dumbo.

  23. lisa says:

    oh and i totally forgot her husband isn’t here legally

    so was he humble and grateful when he became a criminal? GTFO

  24. NotSoSocialButterfly says:


    2) Your stupid is showing again…Unless you are a Native American, *bitch*, you are an immigrant, too.

  25. Seraphina says:

    I’ll be honest, if I were Sophia I would ask the same question. TG is trash and Sophia wants nothing to do with her, not even a picture. Because who knows what gossip will Spring up due to those two being in a photo looking cozy. And in Hollywood your brand is EVERYTHING. Why tarnish your image with trash. And TG should know to humble herself. And that is why is D list. And I hate to break it to TG we are all immigrants to the US – except for the Native Americans. She should keep her mouth shut. She doesn’t have to show her stupidity every time we see her.

    • Boston Green Eyes says:

      I wouldn’t even want to be in the same room as TG, never mind take a picture with her!

    • sunnydaze says:

      Came to say the exact same thing. Perhaps Sophia knew who she was, what she’s done and decided “absolutely not”. If I were her, knowing what little I do about TG, hell no would I want to be associated with her, or her “brand”.

      And holy casual racism/xenophobia – She should be nicer because she’s an immigrant? WTF is that all about?

  26. Kate says:

    I would not want to be photographed next to that convicted felon either. And that trashy housewife can take her xenophobic bs and shove it in … well, you know where ^^

  27. Cristina says:

    Isn’t her husband also an immigrant? Also… Isn’t he a criminal who’s facing deportation?

  28. Asiyah says:

    I understood her feeling like Sofia was rude to her and that Sofia thought she was above her, because I’ve always gotten that vibe from Sofia (and I’ve followed her careers since the mid-90s when she was in Univision, but Teresa lost me when she went into the immigrant stuff. At first I thought ok she’s trying to relate to Sofia that’s nice and then she went on about how Sofia SHOULD be nice because she’s an immigrant? No. Sofia SHOULD be nice because it’s courtesy. She’s not obligated to be nice on account of her being an immigrant. If that’s the case, Teresa SHOULD be nice to any celebrity, regardless of how they act, because she’s untalented and lucky to even be in their presence.

  29. Tess says:

    Her parents are ESL italian speaking immigrants. Her jailed husband is a resident, not a citizen, and there were rumors that he could have his green card revoked and be deported back to Italy after he gets out of prison. She needs to shut it about immigrants “being nice”. You know who is “nice” Teresa? People who don’t cheat the system to look rich for a tv show or are nativists because they themselves “happen” to be citizens but come from a family of immigrants.

  30. Moon Beam says:

    I also side eye Teresa for saying she named her daughter after Melania Trump.

    • Seraphina says:

      That is comic gold. She named her daughter after Mrs. Trump. Wow. Like I said, she just needs to keep quiet. Silence Is Golden should be her mantra.

    What a weird and misguided statement. I wonder if she meant that because they both have foreign roots they should be nice to each other, as a sisterhood kind of mentality? It’s still ridiculous.

    I’ve heard from people that know her that Sofia Vergara is very unpleasant though. Two taxi drivers that work with ABC have mentioned her me as their worst celebrity passenger. I think that because of her Moden Family role and her usually public attitude makes people believe she’s like that in real life and are disappointed to see she’s different.

    Teresa Giudice is so unfortunate. In character and presentation. Gross.

  33. ALF-M says:

    Most of Teresa’s family are immigrants! Her parents, whom barely could speak English on the show, her felon husband who was too dumb to get his citizenship as a child or teenager after moving here when he was 2 years old, Rosie and Kathie’s (her cousins) mom (her aunt). Unlike Teresa, despite being fameous in South America since she was a teen model, it took a lot of hard work, talent and drive for years for Sofia to get the roles and fame she deserves now! I remember the shitty tv but parts and tiny roles in crap movies she did before she started getting better parts. It’s incredivky hard for any woman, especially ethnic women to get leading roles on tv and movies. And Sofia can speak better English, is better educated than Teresa who was born and went to school here! Teresa can’t pronounce words properly. All of her books are ghost written. It took her to flip a table on season 1 to get fameous amongst people who watch reality shows. Oh, and Teresa is a felon and fraud who still doesn’t realize what she and Joe did hurt other people and doesn’t care that she did. She just cares she was caught or was too dumb to realize what docs she was signing so she wouldn’t have to live in someone’s old house but live in that new, incredibly ugly monster house.

    …since I started following entertainment news on blogs one of the first things I learnt is how hardscrabble the industry is…poor Theresa she might have been better off just living a quiet suburban life…

    Pathetic fame whore says what?

  36. Olive says:

    Her husband is an immigrant, and what he did to wind up in prison wasn’t very “nice” either.

    Different standards for your husband, eh?

  37. Addison says:

    LOL Kaiser, “I hope she stands in front of everyone…” Too funny.

    Just like Theresa didn’t ask to take her picture, I’m sure Sofia didn’t either. Sofia provably has no clue who she is. I know I have heard the name and know about the housewives show but do not watch it. And the only reason I know her name is because she went to jail.

    As far as the immigrant comment. That’s offensive. At the very least rude. Human beings should act humane at all times.

    I cannot pay attention to what she says because that hairline is so distracting.

  40. Vovicia says:

    I just can’t with this missing link.

  41. dlc says:

    Well, theresa is a felon and Sophia is not.

  42. JA says:

    Sofia is an actress who has been in both the North American and South American market, acting modeling and hustling to get her career going which she then has funneled into marketing gigs and business ventures. Racist, xenophobic beyotch is a reality show participant made famous for being classless, talentless and shameless. Yes, these two women are not in the same category and or league. The only person riding said horse is the person shouting about immigrants and how important she thinks she is.

  43. whatWHAT? says:

    so, both “being in entertainment” puts them on the same level IN entertainment?

    so, Paris Hilton and Meryl Streep are equals? Kim K and Nicole Kidman? Lindsay Lohan and Emma Stone? Octomom and Angelina Jolie?

    all equals, right?

  44. BJ says:

    The only thing I know about Teresa is that she went to prison.

  45. whatWHAT? says:

    “wannabe”? um, no, she isn’t a wannabe. she the highest paid female TV star on one of the top shows on tv. not to mention her numerous endorsements and business deals.

    so, what you’re saying about them being equal is simply not accurate. I suppose you can call it your “opinion”, but your opinion is based on fallacies. this trick isn’t an “actress”…oh, I know that a lot of “reality” tv is scripted, but she IS NOT AN ACTRESS WITH A CRAFT. she’s “playing” herself…a felonious, foul-mouthed, tacky, rude b*tch who is given lines to support that “character”.

    As opposed to Vergara who busted her ass for years to make it where she is.

    no, not on the same level no matter how hard you try to sell it.
