The cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) has returned for Season 9’s reunion. Two people who didn’t seem happy to see each other were Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider, which is a little surprising. So what changed between them? Here is everything you need ot know.

Teresa Giudice accused Jackie Goldschneider of trying to be her at the reunion

Things got heated between Giudice and Goldschneider during the first part of the reunion. The whole thing started with Giudice bringing up Goldschneider’s story about Jennifer Aydin’s kids.

I don’t even want to know you, Teresa,” the newcomer said. “You’re not my kind of people.” She also said “You live a very sad life.”

Giudice responded with “You want to be me, thank you very much.” When the writer denied this Giudice said, “That’s why you’ve been following me for 10 years.” She used a photo of Goldschneider at her book signing as proof then called her a stalker.

“She’s clearly very threatened by me,” Goldschneider said in response to the accusation. The two didn’t leave off on such bad terms so what happened between Season 9’s finale and the reunion?

Goldschneider said Giudice might have been “triggered” by interviews

Goldschneider and Giudice ended the season on fairly good terms. But something changed. Goldschneider took a guess on why that happened.

I think that when you watch the season, you see the things that people are saying about you in their interviews and when you’re not present and maybe that triggered her a little bit hearing me discuss what happened with other people so maybe she was a little more on edge when we got to the reunion,” the new housewife told The Daily Dish.

This is probably not surprising to fans of the reality show since the stars typically get upset at each other again after they watch the show fully. But the blogger revealed what else might be bothering Giudice.

She said Giudice isn’t happy that she’s friends with Melissa Gorga

Goldschneider continued, “I think she gets really hot and bothered by the fact that Melissa and I are good friends and for some reason that just gets under her skin so I think that when she saw us sitting next to each other at the reunion on the couch, I think something about it just triggered her and she was in a bad mood.”

But according to Goldschneider, Giudice doesn’t just have a problem with her. “So she started off in a tiff with somebody at the reunion and then it was like, ‘Well, I’m already being an a**hole so f*ck it, let me just go in hard on Jackie,’ and it backfired on her, I will say that. But she tried.”

In the end, Goldschneider thinks Giudice got riled up by things that were said in interviews and her friendship with Melissa Gorga. We’ll have to wait and see how far this feud will go.
