Teresa Giudice: Better on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' or 'Celebrity Apprentice'?

Sunday (April 22) was a big night for reality star and cookbook author Teresa Giudice with the much-anticipated premiere of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and a new episode of NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice."On the latter, Teresa's team won during a task to create a slogan and display for Donald Trump's new fragrance, Success by Trump.
