'Housewives' star Teresa Giudice: Don't take the show so seriously

Teresa Giudice is urging The Real Housewives viewers to not get so caught up in the Bravo reality franchise.

"I just want to remind everyone that Real Housewives is TV, and what you see is meant to entertain you. Please don't take anything you see on a TV show so seriously that you would let it upset you in real life," The Real Housewives of New Jersey star wrote in a blog post for People on Friday.

"As Housewives, our job is to be outrageous, controversial and entertaining. As the old Hollywood saying goes, we are not paid to think. We literally are not supposed to think, we’re supposed to speak. In real life, with your friends and neighbors, you edit yourself. You might think, 'Ho bag!' in your head, but in the Real Housewives World, on camera, you are expected to say it out loud. That’s the whole point of the show. People can’t read our minds, so we talk. And we talk a lot," she wrote.

"There is no reason for anyone to send threatening messages of any kind to any Housewife or fan or non-fan. I know you are all loyal to your favorite Housewives, but remember that when we bitch at each other it's because of a TV show."

Last week, The Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin revealed she has been receiving "threatening mail."

"We are being harassed and threatened by a family from Chicago and Alabama. We have contacted authorities. I will block anyone who is linked to them per postal service law enforcement until they finish investigation," she wrote on Facebook.

"This is a serious crime and all evidence has been handed over. If you are involved in anyway... I suggest you stop. Enough is enough. It is NOT funny or a joke."

Giudice said in her blog post that the women featured on The Real Housewives can fight their own battles and don't need help from overzealous fans.

"I ask my fans to please not threaten or hate on anyone else -- even the Housewives I don't care for or that are mean to me. I have no problem calling those women out myself! And I would probably have the same women over for dinner," she wrote.

"But for you to defend me and have someone personally attack you or your children -- or your picture on Facebook or your comments on a blog -- is uncool. So my fans will take the high road and hopefully other Housewives' fans will too! We'll lead by example with our fabulousness!"
