But Goldschneider insists she came onto the show with the best intentions. She admits that she was a fan of the show and even met Giudice prior to becoming a housewife. In a recent interview, Goldschneider opened up about her and Giudice’s first meeting.

Giudice and Goldschneider’s relationship began in a friendly manner but quickly changed when Goldschneider made a reference to Giudice and her husband’s legal trouble. During a tense discussion between Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, Giudice snapped at Gorga, telling her that she could “control” her husband.

Goldschneider disagreed, explaining that women cannot control their husbands. She took things a step further by asking Giudice, “I’m sorry, all due respect, you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?” 

Giudice felt Goldschneider’s question was insensitive and out of line. The co-stars’ relationship never fully recovered. Giudice has also accused Goldschneider of being overly emotional and not having a thick skin.

Giudice accused Godlschnier of being “obsessed” and a “fan” of hers. During the season  9 reunion, Guidice referred to Goldschneider as a “stalker,” revealing that Goldschneider attended a book signing of her’s prior to joining the show.

Goldschneider admitted to doing so, explaining to host Andy Cohen, “So, I was a fan of the show, and I wanted to meet Teresa,” she said. “So, I took the picture with the kids.”

The book signing was brought up again during Goldschneider’s recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Cohen After Show. A fan asked Goldschneider, “Since you were at Teresa’s book signing, where in your home is your copy of Fabulicious?”

Goldschneider shocked Cohen with her response, telling the fan, “I didn’t buy a copy…All that we did was take a picture.”

Cohen, shot back, telling Goldschneider, “Oh my god, that’s savage, too.” But Goldschneider insists “it wasn’t on purpose.” She did not give an explanation as to why she did not purchase a copy of Giudice’s book.

Unfortunately, Giudice and Goldschneider’s relationship this season is still not on the best terms. Things between them started out cordial until Goldschneider was made aware that Giudice was spreading rumors about her marriage. Per Giudice, Goldschneider’s husband may be unfaithful.

Goldschneider insisted that Giudice apologize for giving the rumor life. When she felt Giudice’s apology was not sincere, she made a damaging analogy involving a rumor with Giudice’s eldest daughter using drugs.

Giudice responded angrily, leaving the rest of the cast split on who was more at fault. The rest of the season promises to be explosive. It’s unclear if there will ever be a resolve between the two women.
