Rachel Fuda Says Teresa Giudice Came After John for “relevance.”

After two episodes it is clear that season 14 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Is Teresa Giudice against the Fudas – and Rachel Fuda told Us weekly that she’s “not afraid” to call the OG.

“I think she’s been on this show for so long and this just solidifies her relevance and her paycheck – you’re welcome,” Rachel, 33, said Us in an exclusive interview on Wednesday, May 15, when asked why Teresa, 51, targeted her and her husband John Fuda. “Who else does she have, right? Melissais out. Margaretis out. She won’t fight with her Dolores. JenIt’s so far up her butt that she can’t even see her eyeballs. And who do we have left then? I mean, Jen Fessler won’t. … I was the last resort.”

At the season 13 reunion, things became tense between Teresa and several co-stars, particularly Rachel and Margaret, due to allegations that she was Teresa’s husband LouieHe hired a private detective to investigate the occupation. (Teresa also stays out with her sister-in-law Melissa, as always.) In the premiere, which aired earlier this month, Teresa claimed at Jen Fessler’s Boyfriend’s birthday party that John, 37, was the “biggest drug dealer” in Bergen County.”

“Literally the day before Jen Fessler’s surprise party, all of these things were leaked on the other side’s social media accounts. We know the game,” Rachel said Us. “So when I go into it, I’m like, ‘Oh, okay, here we go. So that was really my warning.’”

She later added: “They couldn’t find anything on me. So they went after him.”

Rachel said on the show that John was arrested for pot possession when he was 17.

“It’s such a joke because we all made mistakes as kids, and if I were to pick up on anyone’s past – we’ve all done things that someone wanted to call bad or use as a weapon,” Rachel said Us. “John is not ashamed of anything he has done or been through. It’s just unfortunate that the opportunity to tell and share his own story was completely taken away from him and manipulated into something it wasn’t and used as a weapon against him.”

In the second episode, Teresa tried to downplay the allegations by telling Fessler that she was referring to the past and that she now thinks John is a good father. (Rachel and John share daughters Giannella, 4, and Giuliana, 2, and she adopted his son Jaiden, 17, from his first marriage.)

“He is a great father. He is a great husband. He is a successful businessman. He’s all of that,” Rachel said Us. “But this is manipulation and gaslighting at its peak. That’s what she does: we manipulate our fans, our stories.”

Rachel noted that she once considered Fessler her closest friend on the show: “I threw a surprise party for Jen Fessler. … I was ten times the closest to her. I mean, we talked on the phone 14 times a day.”

That “changes” over the course of the season, with Rachel hinting that she and Margaret both struggle with Fessler becoming friends with Teresa, while she and Louie continue to deny claims about the private investigator, including that he is Maraget’s son who never appeared in the series.

“I don’t have a relationship with her at the moment. “We probably haven’t spoken in over five months,” Rachel said Us by Fessler. “And there is no bad blood between us at the moment. But all I can say is that my relationship with her is so disappointing. What happened, what happened – it’s really sad to see someone brought into this group of women by Margaret not backing up his friends when they’re asked, “Do you think Louis called Margaret’s son.” has?” And you say, “She swore by her four children.” She is a pathological liar. What are you talking about? Do you think Margaret is faking it? She was hysterical that day. She called me. I talked to her.”

Rachel continued: “My real issue when I say that – and this isn’t just about Jen Fessler – is that it’s a universal problem. We can be friends, you can be friends with anyone, but don’t sit here and tell me what you think I want to hear and then be friends with someone. Does not work like that. If you like her, tell me, grow a pair and tell me, “I like her.” “I want to be friends with her,” and then we’re good. But if you don’t do that and you sit here and say, “I don’t want to be in the same room as them.” I don’t want to be associated with that group of women, I don’t want to be part of that group of women when that happens should.’ … It doesn’t connect.”
