Housewives Fight to the Finish
Former besties Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita are engaged in a vicious feud. Recently, it was reported that Laurita had quit Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey after some drama went down. She even refused to participate in the taping of the finale. Now, it appears there is some major meat to those rumors... or should we say beef. Last week, news began to circulate that Giudice's archenemy and sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, had a seedy past that included a little stripping action. It didn't take long for Laurita to emerge from the shadows and launch an attack against her former BFF. Over the weekend Laurita Tweeted, "Teresa told me that 'rumor' about Melissa when she first started the show. She wanted her out then. She knew. She plotted it. She played dumb on camera and even defended Melissa." Laurita then followed up with a Tweet saying, "Teresa is scum!" So far, friend-turned-enemy Giudice has remained mum on the latest controversy. However, wannabe singer Gorga took to her personal Web site to set the record straight. Gorga writes, "We are filming season 4 so there is not too much I can confirm, but there is one thing that I would like to clarify ...the accusation that I was once a dancer at a strip club. This is 100% NOT TRUE. I did bartend for a few weeks at a bikini bar while I was in college. My outfit was a tank top, shorts and sneakers. SORRY, no bubbies there. The reason I am so adamant about clearing this up is because people are making false accusations solely to hurt me and my family. Someone desperately wants to knock me down and prove that I have something to hide, but then tries to cover it up by putting the blame on production." Meanwhile, Laurita admitted that she's cracking under the pressure. Another Tweet maintained, "OK, so I'm losing it. This is what all this negativity I'm surrounded w/does 2me. I'm taking deepbreaths&gettingcontrolofmyself."
