Teresa Giudice appeared on Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, where she reacted to the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 finale, addressed her involvement with the cheating rumor about Melissa Gorga, and commented on their ongoing family feud.

But before getting into the drama surrounding her relationship with Melissa and her brother, Joe Gorga, and answering questions about Luis Ruelas‘ statement about hiring a private investigator to dig up dirt on their castmates, Teresa shared her thoughts on Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann‘s divorce.

“I was [shocked]. I texted her. I am [sad],” Teresa said of the split on the May 16 episode of WWHL.

While Luis has taken heat over the past several weeks for wearing Teresa’s late father’s pajamas (which Nonno had never actually worn), he described the gesture as “endearing” to host Andy Cohen.

“I was doing something endearing, trying to explain something endearing to Joe. Didn’t go over well,” he noted, giving a nod to his suggestion that wearing the PJs made Teresa’s daughters feel safe.

When Teresa was then questioned about Luis’ aggressive behavior and potential rage issues, which Andy noted had been on display during the last two episodes of RHONJ, Teresa said she isn’t concerned because Luis doesn’t rage.

“He doesn’t. I think the most he’s ever gotten was on TV. Whatever’s on TV. But I mean, at home, it’s amazing. I always have a smile from ear to ear,” she insisted.

When the topic moved to the Gorgas, Teresa denied starting their latest feud by excluding Melissa and Joe from her and Luis’ wedding and confirmed she does not believe the rumor claiming Melissa was unfaithful.

She also denied pushing Danielle Cabral to discuss the report with Melissa, asking, “What would I get out of that?” She also admitted that their family feud would not come to an end if Melissa and Joe were to split.

Then, after describing the RHONJ reunion as “upsetting” and “sad” and saying she “couldn’t wait for it to be over,” adding that her heart was beating fast “when it first started,” Teresa denied Luis hired an investigator.

“He did not do that. Why [would] he waste his money? He did say it because he was frustrated. I mean, did you see what they were… He just said it. He was frustrated. That’s what he said,” Teresa explained.

Meanwhile, Luis admitted to lying about his communication with the investigator.

“I was at the end of my rope. It was a long season. Frustrating, trying to get married,” he shared.

But Andy seemed skeptical, noting, “That’s kind of an amazing thing to come up with out of nowhere.”

“It is actually, isn’t it? I regret it, though,” Luis admitted.

And Teresa continued, “You know how much that would cost? How many people are on the cast, to investigate each person, you think we wanna waste our money on that? No. I’d rather him waste his money on me.”

Also on the show, while trying to guess the names of celebrities she’s met, Teresa struggled to remember who Jackie Hoffman was, saying that she looks like her former co-star, Caroline Manzo.
