Teresa Giudice insists she's just a sweet Jersey girl who usually doesn't let anger get the best of her.
However, cameras from The Real Housewives of New Jersey did catch the mother of three flipping a table aimed at the show's resident vixen, Danielle Staub, during a very heated, profanity-filled argument.
While none of the Housewives will reveal exactly what went down during that exchange, Teresa tells me, "I've never done that in my life. That was my first time.
"That's normally not me, but I guess when I'm pushed to a certain level…" she says. "I'm so sweet. I have a heart of gold and I'm really a great person."
How are things with Danielle right now?
"She blogged the other night and I got a little annoyed," Teresa says. "But then I was like, I'm not even going to let her get to me. I'll just save it for the reunion."
Teresa also wants to clear up a misconception you may have of her about money. In the first episode, she's shown buying $120,000 worth of furniture—in cash!
"Who walks around with $120,000 cash?" she laughs. "It was just a deposit! The rest went on credit."
And then there's Teresa's derriere. While discussing the possibility of getting breast implants during the first episode, she noted that her husband of eight years, Joe, doesn't really mind her lack of cleavage.
"He loves my butt," she says. "I always did have a big butt. Do you remember that song back in the day? There was a song that had my name in it: ‘Teresa's got a big ol' butt.' Everybody in high school used to sing that to me. Everybody liked my ass."
