RHONJ fans know Dolores and Teresa to be BFFs, but a recent report tells a different story, claiming a bit of catty confrontation taking place while filming for the show.
“Dolores has been complaining to friends about Teresa,” an insider told The Sun on August 31. “She actually wants her off the show. Dolores knows she has no power to make that happen and seems very frustrated. She is tired of her being the center of attention and feels she overstayed her welcome.”
The source went on to reveal that Dolores claims Teresa is “being really fake” and is apparently “still in love with Joe [Giudice]” but doesn’t want to admit it.
“She claims she would do anything to be back together with him but is using their break up to keep her storyline exciting,” the source shared.
The source also went on to talk about Dolores’ possible motivations for talking badly about her friend, noting the mother of two’s potentially precarious position on the show.
“Dolores’ friends believe she is just scared her philanthropic storyline isn’t exciting enough so she’s feeling insecure and is talking badly about Teresa,” they remarked. “Teresa obviously wouldn’t like it if she knew about Dolores’ wishes but she doesn’t feel like Dolores is a threat.”
Dolores joined the franchise during season seven in 2016 and has remained a solid staple since then. Her and Teresa’s friendship has deep roots, and Dolores stood steadfastly by her side throughout the seasons, warning her about a potentially threatening relationship with Danielle Staub.
Teresa ultimately learned her lesson about that one last season, but does she now have a potential foil in her long-standing bestie?
