In addition to being a reality star, Teresa can call herself a cookbook author, a former felon, and a podcast host. She joined the popular media medium in 2022. The RHONJ star teamed up with nutritionist Melissa Pfeister for the Namaste B$tches podcast.

The podcast abruptly ended in April and to many fans’ surprise, Teresa Giudice announced earlier this month that she was hosting a brand new podcast called Turning The Tables. Rumors swirled that she had a falling out with her former co-host. What’s the truth behind the podcast switch?

What Happened To Namaste B$tches?

Podcasts have been around for decades but really gained popularity during the COVID pandemic when everyone was stuck at home. Now it seems like every reality star from every network hosts a podcast, including RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice.

The Namaste B$tches podcast was pretty popular, which made fans wonder why Teresa would ditch it and create her own podcast. According to Reality Tea, the reality star no longer follows her former co-host on social media, sparking further speculation of a falling out.

But Melissa Pfeister recently spoke out and blasted the rumors as “terrible lies.” She told the Daily Mail that she spent two years building up the podcast and she wasn’t going to tear it down by disparaging the RHONJ star.

“I worked on it 24/7 and after all that, there is no way I would ever do anything to ruin it or go after someone. That’s not who I am or how I roll. You can ask any of the 150-plus people I’ve interviewed and have an amazing relationship with.”

Teresa’s former podcast co-host is pregnant with her third child and said that played a role in her decision to step back from Namaste B$tches.

“I’m pregnant and the pregnancy has been very difficult so with all that, it was time for a break from Namaste.”

However, she did seem to hint that there was more to the story she wasn’t willing to share. “I could say a lot more of the other reasons I stepped away, but again, that’s not who I am or what I do,” Melissa said.

Teresa Giudice hasn’t publicly spoken about why she decided to end Namaste B$tches and create a solo podcast. Episodes of Turning The Tables come out on Wednesdays.
