Watch: Teresa Giudice Explains Her Reunion With Danielle Staub

Teresa Giudice set Real Housewives of New Jersey fans into a tizzy when she tweeted a photo of herself doing yoga alongside former costar (and enemy) Danielle Staub.

"Loved catching up & bonding this am with @daniellestaub at JZT Dance & Yoga .. #RHONJ #OG'S #NAMASTE," she tweeted. Andy Cohen retweeted the photo with a "Wowza!" and Dina Manzo, another of Teresa and Danielle's former costars replied to Andy and said, "a little yoga fixes everything #shitjustgotreal."

Now Teresa is speaking out about the surprising reunion. Teresa was lunging for Danielle when viewers last saw them on screen together during RHONJ's season two reunion. Not even Andy could stop her.

"Andy brought her up at the reunion, so it sparked something up inside me," Teresa told E! News. "So I reached out to her on Twitter and she responded. I asked her if she was into yoga and she said of course, so I said, ‘Let's take a yoga class together.' So we did."

Could this signal the return of Danielle to The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

"Like I said, I've never had a problem with her, I would love for her to come back," Teresa told us. "My thing is, I said what I had to say and that was it. It never went beyond that."

When the two met for yoga, they cleared the air, specifically about things Danielle has said about Teresa on social media. Danielle said it was only because she was hurt. "It was just words," Teresa explained.

But how did Dina, Teresa's BFF, feel about her palling around with her one-time on-screen nemesis? Teresa told us that Dina sent her a text and said, "Girl, we need to catch up."

"Dina's all good vibes, she really is. And that's how I am, it's all good energy," Teresa said.

As for Jacqueline Laurita? Well, watch the video above.

Housewives returning to the franchise isn't anything new. Dina previously returned to RHONJ, Bethenny Frankel came back to Real Housewives of New York City and Sheree Whitfield is back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta after leaving. Several Real Housewives of Beverly Hills veterans also regularly recur after leaving fulltime, including Kim Richards and Camille Grammer.

When asked about the prospects of Danielle returning to RHONJ, Andy, who is an executive producer on the show, told us this: "Look, I never say never. I never say never."
