‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’: Teresa Giudice defends ‘Jewish’ remark

Teresa’s speaking out.

On Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Teresa Giudice brought some attention of herself for all the wrong reasons — specifically when she made a comment about her contentious situation with her husband Joe pertaining to a lawsuit:

“I mean my Jewish friends are all ‘I would have divorced him right away!!’ But I’m Italian.”

Although there are a number of people out there more than a little bit angry about this remark, Teresa herself has a rather interesting defense for what she said:

“Some of my friends have told me they would have left Joe if they were me. I was trying to explain myself without calling anyone out specifically, and the way I described them to keep them anonymous was ‘Jewish.’ They are Jewish, but being Jewish has nothing to do with why they would have left Joe. Their religion had nothing to do with the story, I was just trying to explain myself and not use anyone’s name, and my words got all jumbled. I’m so sorry if I offended anyone, but that’s not what I meant at all.”

Based on the comment made on television — and on Teresa’s public defense and apology — do you believe her explanation?
