Teresa Giudice to Sofía Vergara: You Should be Nice, You’re An ‘Immigrant’


Apparently Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice “cannot stand” Sofía Vergara. On Monday, during a taping of Getting Real With the Housewives, Giudice recalled the time she ran into the Modern Family actress at an event. She claimed that a Bravo publicist requested the two take a photo together.

According to Giudice, Vergara was reluctant to be photographed with the reality celeb and stepped in front of her when it was time to shoot the picture. Giudice demonstrated how the whole thing went down and was especially annoyed because the Emmy Award nominee wasn’t feeling the contrived photo opp.

She told the crowd, “I never asked for a picture because I’m so not like that, I don’t care,” Giudice said. “[Sofia] didn’t want to take a picture with me… Ugh, I can’t stand her, sorry. I hate to say that because I’m Italian, she’s Colombian, she has an accent—she has more of an accent than me! You would think she would be nice, like she’s an immigrant—no, I’m just saying, she should be nice!”

In the video obtained by TMZ, you can see and hear the crowd laughing and clapping.

Giudice went on to inform the crowd that she was mad at herself because she wanted to tell the Colombiana, “Bi*ch, I didn’t want to take a picture with you. Get outta my face.”

Page Six was quick to point out that Vergara “aced her citizenship in 2014.” Meanwhile, Giudice’s hubby, Joe, who isn't an American citizen, could be deported at the conclusion of his nearly four-year prison stint for bankruptcy fraud and failing to file taxes.
