Teresa Giudice's crisis manager Wendy Feldman went on the record last year and slammed the reality star—calling her a narcissist and a terrible client—just months before the Real Housewives of New Jersey star signed her on as a legal coach.
In the August 2013 interview, she also said the reality star "needs to go into treatment" because there is "something wrong with her thinking."
At the time, Wendy was talking to The Amy Beth Arkawy Show about how she would handle her as a client, saying she would tell Teresa and husband Joe to "stop all the media."

Of course, that didn’t exactly happen. In November, the Real Housewife hired “The Fixer” to help her prepare for her trial.
During the initial radio interview, the legal coach revealed she would have Teresa “evaluated” if she had the opportunity to work with the reality star—even though that has yet to happen, that we know of.
“The number one thing I would do if I was on her team is get a psychological evaluation because there is something with her and she needs to go into some sort of treatment,” Wendy explained.
“I am not saying substance abuse treatment because that is not her issue. But there is something wrong with her thinking and until you correct her thinking you cannot really work with it.”
Wendy told the radio hosts she knew Teresa “from a long time ago” adding that she is friends with other women from the Housewives franchise, so it wasn’t as if she was judging the mother-of-four based on her table-flipping television antics.
Still, even with a personal relationship, she wasn’t hesitant to slam Tre.
“There is an interesting dynamic with people who do those shows,” she said. “There is a narcissistic component that, unless you get a hold of it, will destroy you.”

The bottom line—the self-proclaimed “leading alternative sentencing specialist” had absolutely no interest in working with the Giudices, who plead guilty to multiple counts of fraud earlier this week.
“You have two people here that would be terrible clients because they would never listen,” Wendy said. “And they are in a load of trouble.”
