It looks like Teresa Aprea isn’t interested in being the only RHONJ star to battle ugly cheating rumors.
A source told Radar, “Teresa didn’t want any of the cheating allegations to air during the season.”
The insider claimed that Bravo agreed, because they really wanted Giudice to participate in the latest Real Housewives of New Jersey season.
After all, she was embroiled in a major scandal, the kind that was sure to bring in BIG ratings for their series.
However during the broadcast of the special Secrets Revealed, Houswives castmate Teresa Aprea decided to go ahead and make the allegation about Joe Giudice.

Aprea said, “Joe [...] in the past he’s been a cheater, and he hasn’t been the best husband.’”
Teresa Giudice was said to be livid at what was more of an accusation than an actual confession.
“It’s all about public perception for Teresa [Giudice],” said the insider. “She wants the world to think she is happily married.”
If that’s what Teresa wanted for her and Joe, she’s no doubt been disappointed. On top of her fraud scandal, there have been numerous rumors that the couple’s marriage was strained by the case and their impending jail time. There's also been talk of a possible divorce.
Even the insider discussing Giudice’s response to Aprea’s accusation seems to agree.
The source said that both “Teresa and Joe are miserable in the marriage” and added that Joe Giudice “has hardly been spending any time at home.”

Teresa Aprea has only thrown more gasoline on the fire with her loose lips, no doubt to the chagrin of her castmate.
One would expect Aprea to be more sympathetic to the marriage plight of the Giudices given her recent situation.
A few months ago, Teresa Aprea was herself dealing with a cheating scandal involving her husband Rino and her own mother!
Did Teresa Aprea throw Teresa Giudice under the bus to take the heat off of her marriage woes?
