RHONJ's Teresa Giudice boasts she's the 'Tom Brady of Housewives' after 11 seasons on hit Bravo show

REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice boasted that she's the "Tom Brady of Housewives" after 11 seasons on the hit Bravo show.

The 48-year-old's comments come as RHONJ returns for its eleventh season on Wednesday.

During a recent interview with Daily Pop, the longtime Bravo star compared herself to the Super Bowl-winning quarterback.

Teresa told co-host Justin Sylvester: "When I first started the show, I did it for fun.

"Season one and two were fun. And after that, season three on…family came on, then the whole legal stuff, then I lost my mom, then I lost my dad."

Noting that she hasn't always "had fun on the show," Teresa said it's been "very tough" and added: "I'm the Tom Brady of Housewives."

A number of dramatic moments from Teresa's life have been documented on the reality show, including her arrest and divorce from husband Joe Giudice, 48.

Back in March 2014, Joe and Teresa both pleaded guilty to multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

Her Italian-born ex also pleaded guilty to one count of failing to file a tax return in addition to the other charges.

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison and served 11 of those months behind bars from 2014 to 2015, while Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison and was eventually deported to his home country.

The exes- who share daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12- decided to end their marriage on a trip to Italy after 20 years of marriage.

Since their split, Teresa has moved on with new boyfriend Luis Ruelas.

The reality star met her new love on the Jersey Shore, while the co-founder of Digital Media Solutions has already met her four daughters.

While claims have surfaced that Luis was accused of “controlling and abusive behavior” by his ex-fiancée, that hasn't stopped the new relationship from progressing quickly.

The couple recently took a major step in their relationship and bought a $3,350,000 mansion in Montville Township, New Jersey.

The residence spans 7,728 square feet with seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and three half-baths.

The property has a long list of amenities- including an exercise room and rec room- on an almost six-acre piece of land.
