What Really Started Teresa Giudice And Jackie Goldschneider's Feud

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is known for its table-flipping feuds — and star Teresa Giudice seems to be at the center of it all. The beloved "OG" cast member has always voiced her opinion on her fellow Housewives, for better or for worse. Now, with a new home and a new man, Teresa seems to have finally found happiness... but don't count her out from any of the fights in the Season 11 trailer. One of the top insults teased for the upcoming season? Teresa spreads a serious rumor about Jackie Goldschneider's marriage

But Jackie is as versatile on-screen as she is off: from her many business ventures to raising a family, Jackie knows how to stand her ground. And of course, this isn't the first time Teresa has gone head-to-head with the former attorney — but it definitely seems the most serious. So, how did this most recent feud begin? Keep scrolling to find out — plus why Jackie might want to call in back-up! 

Jackie Goldschneider blames Teresa Giudice for trying to 'tear my marriage apart'

Don't mess with family! According to Screen Rant, Jackie Goldschneider refused to film several episodes of RHONJ due to Teresa Giudice circulating rumors of Jackie's husband Evan Goldschneider's (alleged) infidelity. "I certainly did not expect anything like what happened... It was a really emotional season for me," Jackie revealed to Cheat Sheet"I don't think that if I had any sense that someone was going to try to essentially tear my marriage apart and destroy a family, I would have ever allowed it."

Jackie continued to say that she was "blown away by the audacity" of Teresa trying to insult her "beautiful marriage," which resulted in four children. The altercation forced Jackie to "take a step back" and even question if she wanted to stay on the series. "I had to evaluate whether this group of women were the type of people I wanted to invite into my life," Jackie admitted. She even had to discuss it with husband Evan. 

Teresa and Jackie's fight is expected to reach a breaking point right before a cast trip during Season 11, and Jackie even has called on former RHONJ star Caroline Manzo to return to the franchise as back-up! Caroline has also butted heads with Teresa, and as Jackie told Hollywood Life, Caroline is the only one who could "go up against [Teresa] except me." Are those fighting words?
