Teresa Giudice Twitter, Blog: Bravo Gives Giudice A ‘Bad Edit’ On ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey'?
Heather MacLean, Teresa Giudice's best friend, took to Twitter to publicly rant about Bravo's editing of the Giudice family.
"I know everyone gets a shitty edit now & then, but no one on the planet has been punished for it in real life like the Giudices," Heather tweeted, adding, "But to constantly give such an unfair, biased, untrue edit to Teresa & Joe is unconscionable. Your lies are hurting their REAL LIFE."
The rant was in response to last Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, in which Bravo conveniently failed to include Giudice getting the horse to lift up its leg. They did not show Giudice's success in being "open, honest, and vulnerable," which was the point of the exercise.
"Wait, so Teresa did triumph with the horse, Melissa knows this, but tweets that she didn't take it seriously? Why lie? WHY? Just to hurt T?" McLean said.
Giudice also tweeted on the matter:
Lil upset that the scene was cut where I finally found the strength to lift up the horse's foot. #proudofmyself

Giudice and her family have been pegged as the show's villains ever since brother Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa Gorga appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Despite their ongoing conflict, Gorga is supporting Giudice in the midst of her legal problems.
"We're always here for Teresa," Melissa, 34, told Us Weekly of her sister-in-law at the MTV 2013 Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25. "She's very strong and has a lot of strength and at the end of the day, it's about those four babies and we're here for them no matter what. She knows that we're here for her."
As previously reported, Teresa, 41, and Joe Giudice, 43, are accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their reality TV show debuted in 2009. Teresa previously filed for a mortgage loan of $121,000 in 2001. They then hid how well they were doing in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
They were finally charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications, and bankruptcy fraud.
Rumors have also been circulating that Teresa Giudice would be rid of all counts if she testified against her husband. However, their lawyer discounted the rumors.
