Buttons. Pushed. “I was really sick, but I was also fed up. It was a double-whammy,” Jacqueline Laurita confesses to Ranu’s Reviews about missing last season’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion -- but adds that “of course” she’ll be there next round.
Part of the reason Jacqueline crashed head-on into her breaking point was her fallout with Teresa Giudice. (Get ready to read in between the lines.) “I really tried my best to be a good friend to her, and to me, being a good friend to someone is being honest with them. If they see you do something wrong or making a mistake, they’re going to tell you the truth and guide you to help you make your life better,” Ashlee, C.J., and Nicholas’ mama explains. “Some people don’t want friends like that. They want soldiers. They want people to just agree with them [about] whatever they feel. I’m not that kind of friend.”
Jacqueline goes on to say, “I’ll tell you the truth, but it’s in your best interest because I love you. It’s not because I’m trying to hurt you. It’s not because I’m going against you…I don’t think Teresa saw it that way, so that was heartbreaking for me.”
Careful not to divulge too much more about the upcoming season, the 41-year-old implies other factors were happening behind-the-scenes that caused a lot of pain. “You’ll see it in my face; I was sad the whole season.”
