‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’: Teresa Giudice and Therapy Doesn’t Mix

Filed under : Celebrity News

Teresa Giudice and therapy don’t mix, as viewers saw for themselves on “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Sunday night. Teresa finally agreed to go with her brother, Joe Gorga, to visit a counselor over mending their damaged relationship. The effort seemed almost futile given the fact Teresa questioned everything the therapist was saying. Whatever advice or suggestions he gave were contradicted by Teresa.

Prior to the therapy session on “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Joe noted how he feels it’s hard for Teresa to be a real friend to people.

“I think it’s extremely hard for Teresa to be a good friend, a loyal friend,” Joe said. “She can’t even be loyal to her family. That’s why I’m going to therapy, to make her understand what she does wrong.”

When the therapist talked with Teresa, he evaluated her as a “emotional” person. When she has fun, she’s having the time of her life, but when she gets angry, she takes it too far. The therapist was also concerned that she went into the counseling session with a chip on her shoulder — a bad way to begin because a fight would easily erupt between her and her brother.

Throughout the whole session Teresa Giudice seemed clueless to the whole point of her session with Joe Gorga. It took a lot for Joe to even consider going through with this, but he has to deal with his sister’s irrational approach to their issues.

The issue of tabloid reports came up about Teresa allegedly telling a magazine he sold a house their parents were living in without making any arrangements. They argued over money problems and how each would have handled the situation.

As Joe said, he just wants respect and love. That’s all he wants and the therapist is trying to get he and Teresa “back to normal.”

Family means everything to both Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga. The therapist recommended they begin family occasions, such as Sunday dinner traditions. At first it would be difficult, but it would be be smoother over time. Teresa just wanted to know “why can’t things just work” without trying to change things?

As the therapist said, they would have never met him if things didn’t need work.

Will therapy work for Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga?

    One definition of Narcissitic Personality Disorder:

    Women who are narcissistic think about themselves before others and act as if the world revolves around them. Women who have narcissistic personality disorder also always put themselves first; however, the personality disorder affects their lives occupationally and socially. Other people are turned off by women with narcissistic personality disorder due to their lack of empathy, inability to relate to others, sense of grandiosity and arrogant behaviors and attitude.

    It’s my belief that Teresa has NPD. NPD individuals are rarely diagnosed, as they don’t believe in counseling. I’m certainly no doctor, but I’ve had experience with NPD personalities in my family and Teresa is very close, if not right on target.

    We all know that she just isn’t “right” when it comes to normal behavior. She’s insincere, smiles at a person one second, then slams them the next. She can’t get past herself to see how she impacts others with her comments. NPD individuals can be utterly brutal and extremely damaging to those closest to them.

    My main concern are those children. How sad that they’re already exhibiting some of her behaviors.
