"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice did double time last night for reality television; she appeared on both "Housewives" and "Celebrity Apprentice" at the same time.
Giudice has been vilified almost since the first episode of the show for being loud, brash, and impossibly self-centered, but she has shown a noticeably different side while on the Trump-helmed "Celebrity Apprentice", keeping her temper in check and showing a maturity her Jersey fans never knew she had (to be fair, however, it'd be pretty hard to flip over that board room table. It looks fairly heavy).
The mom of four has been a tabloid dream over the past year after facing bankruptcy; her husband was later arrested for fraud related to that bankruptcy. While her personal life is always an area of contention on the "Real Housewives of New Jersey"--especially with her brother Joe Gorga and her sister-in-law Caroline, who co-stars--she has obviously been wise enough not to bring it into the other show.
"It's surprising to me that she's not more volatile," Donald Trump said. "I thought she'd be a total wild woman … and really she's not. I mean, she's more reserved, and I think it's a lot different than when you see her on the other show."
