Teresa Giudice reacted to claims of leaking stories to a blogger on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night, slamming the woman as “obsessed.”

After both she and Jennifer Aydin, 47, were called out for allegedly leaking stories to the blogger, the longtime Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 52, accused the woman of being “obsessed” as she also reacted to the recently canceled reunion, confirmed she reached out to Dina Manzo, 52, after ex-husband Tommy Manzo‘s conviction, and weighed in on many other hot topics, including her drama with John Fuda, 37, and her newfound friendship with Jackie Goldschneider, 47.

“Never. Prove it. There’s not [screenshots] of me telling anybody to put stories out there. There’s screenshots of Margaret doing that,” Teresa stated on the June 9 episode of WWHL. “[It was] not me putting stuff out there. This blogger’s lying, but they’re not my texts. Obsessed. Single white female.”

Just after she and Jennifer were accused of leaking information to the blogger, news that season 14 would not have a reunion was confirmed. And while many were left disappointed by the news, Teresa said she was at peace with the decision.

“I think pretty much everything I had to say, everyone’s gonna see it this season,” she explained, agreeing with host Andy Cohen, 56, that the finale would serve as a finale-reunion combo.

Also this month, RHONJ fans were met with the news of Dina’s ex, Tommy, being found guilty of hiring a mobster to assault her husband, Dave Cantin.

“I texted her and she hearted it,” Teresa revealed. “Justice is served.”

During recent episodes of RHONJ, Teresa and John have been at war over her claims about his past and his claims about the past of her husband, Luis Ruelas, 50. And although Teresa did apologize for what she said about him, she’s still waiting for an apology from John and Rachel Fuda, 33.

“[My apology] was [genuine]. But I want an apology first because they’re the ones that started all this,” she stated. “He accused my husband of reaching out to his ex that was in jail, and why would he do that? They threw the first punch so I’m gonna finish the fight. Trust me.”

“Too bad we weren’t having a reunion because I was gonna bring an envelope and I was gonna take something out of the envelope,” she continued.

While many have suggested that Teresa’s new friendship with Jackie won’t last and wondered if the ladies actually like one another, Teresa denied using her castmate as a puppet on WWHL.

“I’ve been watching the season now, and I really see that Jackie’s making her own decisions. It’s not because I told her… I didn’t tell her to do anything. Jennifer didn’t tell her to do anything. I see that [Margaret Josephs] is getting on her last nerve and she’s seeing right through her,” Teresa noted.

Also on the live broadcast, Teresa denied that Dolores Catania, 52, should rethink her romance with Paul “Paulie” Connell, saying, “I love Paulie,” confirmed she avoided Melissa Gorga, 45, at BravoCon, and failed to name three things she misses about hanging out with her sister-in-law.

She then responded to a fan who asked why she wanted Rachel to bring Joe Gorga a bottle of tequila from her as a housewarming gift.

“That was my husband’s doing. Luis is that kind of guy. I didn’t want to do that. That was his doing,” she revealed.

Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Teresa was asked to tease the upcoming second season of House of Villains.

“At first I didn’t want to do the show because I was like, ‘I’m not a villain.’ But I’m so excited I did it. I can’t wait for everyone to see because I think they’re gonna see, everyone’s saying the ‘Real Teresa,’” she shared. “I know everyone thinks that you see the real Teresa on [RHONJ], but I can’t wait for you guys to see House of Villains. I can’t wait. I have to see it myself to see how it plays out.”

As for her favorite and least favorite co-guest on WWHL, Teresa couldn’t name them.

“I can’t remember [a bad experience]. It’s been so many [appearances]. I wish I could see them all and then I could pick,” she explained.

Then, regarding her past drama with Andy, Teresa admitted, “You were just doing your job. [But] I thought you were always asking me the hard questions. And I didn’t get it. This is my first time on TV. This was all new to me.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
