Is there a war of the roses growing behind-the-scenes of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey“?
Some controversial footage captured of Teresa Giudice‘s husband Joe using offensive language to describe his wife is making the rounds.
While filming an upcoming episode, Joe steps away from the table during an outdoor celebration to take a call from an unidentified person and when Teresa gets up to walk toward him, Joe unleashes some ugly name-calling while he’s still mic’d.
“Here she comes, my b**ch wife. She’s such a c***,” Joe says to the person on the phone. “I’m going to hang up.”
“Who are you talking to?” Teresa asks as she wanders over, thinking it rude that he’s taking a call during a party. “A worker, what the f***?” Joe replies.
He follows that by calling Teresa a “pain in the a**” and a “re****” … to her face. Nice.
So does that mean the couple’s relationship is in trouble? “She and Joe are still together, and Teresa says they’re fine,” a source tells People.
The Giudices were on a group trip to wine country, where the “RHONJ” cast — including the the Gorgas, the Lauritas, the Wakiles and the Manzos — head to Napa, Calif., to celebrate Caroline Manzo’s 50th birthday.
