Teresa Giudice is under fire after poking fun at actress Sofia Vergara‘s heavy Columbian accent while accusing her of being the “rudest woman” she’s “ever met” on an episode of her podcast last month.

After claiming the America’s Got Talent judge, 51, complained after being asked to take a picture with her and lashing out at her for her lack of humility on Namaste B$tches, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, also 51, was met with backlash as she and husband Luis Ruelas, 48, enjoyed a getaway in Greece, where he debuted a new tattoo.

In a video clip shared by Page Six, Teresa and Luis were seen walking together on the beach in Mykonos on Tuesday, where he was seen sporting a tattoo that matched one she got in 2021.

Ahead of their one-year wedding anniversary on August 6, Luis was seen with the words “sempre insieme,” which means “always together,” and numbers “333” on his ribs — the same place Teresa sports the ink.

As RHONJ fans may recall, Teresa debuted her tattoo, which honors her late mother, Antonia Gorga, in 2021, and included the phrase in her and Luis’ wedding.

“My veil had 3 hearts and the phrase ‘Sempre Insieme’ which means always together and is written on my parents’ mausoleum because they were always together,” she explained of Antonia and Giacinto Gorga. “[And my wedding dress designer Mark Zunino] surprised me by sewing three hearts and 333 inside of the dress as an extra tribute to my parents because the number 3 is very significant for my family.”

Throughout their time together in Greece, where they got engaged and celebrated their honeymoon, Teresa and Luis have been quite handsy.

In other RHONJ news, “disgusted” fans have taken to the comments section of her latest Instagram page to shame her for “making fun of” Sofia’s accent, with many going as far as to label her “xenophobic” and accuse her of “racist remarks.”

“I’m disgusted by you mocking Sofia’s accent! An immigrant like your parents who barely spoke English!” one person wrote. “I’m so heartbroken, you showed your xenophobia once again!! I didn’t forget what you said back in 2017! I thought you matured, I love you, your family since the beginning of the show, supported your products, now podcast, but I [can no] longer sit here [and] listen [to] you being xenophobic like it’s funny!”

“Shame on you!! Shame on you for making fun of Sophia Vergana’s accent,” another reprimanded. “Aren’t you are child from immigrant parents that came from another country that had an accent too??? I remember those episodes of your parents with a harsh Italian accent. No one bash them so you shouldn’t do it to others.”

And while some noted that Sofia is “not a felon” and “pays her taxes unlike [Teresa],” others took aim at Teresa’s own speech.

“You making fun of someone else’s accent when you’re incapable of string on together a coherent sentence. Ignorant doesn’t even begin to describe you,” someone stated.

“Teresa can barely speak Italian NOR English, so the nerve of her to mock someone else,” another agreed.

Then, after someone else said they “[were] a fan” but cannot continue to support Teresa after her mockery of Sofia, the RHONJ cast member was accused of acting out of privilege.

“Xenophobic and you’re an immigrant too?” an Instagram user wondered. “Just WOW. You have no idea of your ignorance or privilege.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to go into production in mid-August.
