She told her co-host during an episode of their podcast Namaste B$tches, “Listen, I wanna move by you, ’cause like this weather is so crappy.” she explained, “Like, today it was pouring rain this morning, and I was just like, ‘Oh my God. I’m thinking about you. I’m like, [She’s] in the sunshine.’ I’m like, ‘I wanna be there with her.

Giudice has been on the show as a full-time cast member since Season 1. She’s the only OG cast member who remains and has never taken a break, despite her 15-month prison stint. She says she would prefer if her former co-stars de ella returned because they had real friendships when they first began taping.
“I would love the first, the way we started, season one and season two,” she said in a recent interview on the Reality With the King podcast. “When I said to [Carlos King]’I don’t want to fight with my family,’ [it was] because I was seeing what was going on between Jacqueline [Laurita]Dina [Manzo]and Caroline [Manzo]. It was about their family. And I was like, ‘I do not want what’s happening to them to happen to me,’ ”she noted, regarding the eventual fallout Giudice would have with her own family from her.

I started it. I’m gonna finish it—as long as Bravo wants me.”
