“I was so happy I was a part of it, and it was amazing,” Giudice gushed. “I feel like everyone’s going to get to know more of who Teresa Giudice really is.”

We got really close,” Giudice revealed. “She lives in Atlanta, I live in [New Jersey]. It’s hard, but it was nice. It was great seeing her. It’s amazing how you can connect with someone, and then you see how it plays out on the show.”
