Jacqueline weighs in on the Facebook war and shares some final thoughts regarding Danielle.

on Jun 9, 20100

 

Hello everybody! I'm not sure where to start today. I guess I'll start with Gia. I think for a little girl she has a good head on her shoulders. She shows a lot of maturity in the competitive acting world. She takes rejection well and never gives up. She will make it someday big doing something. You'll see. Teresa is obviously a proud supportive mother of her daughter. Gia is very lucky to have her. I wish her nothing but the best for a successful future.

As far as my daughter Ashley is concerned, I will not be speaking on her behalf. Ashley is 19 years old so she can speak for herself. Starting this week she will have her own blog. I can only try to guide Ashley into making the right decisions at her age. The choices are up to her. I am a very fair and honest person. I feel like when you make a bad choice you have to accept the consequences that come from your actions and not run from it. I have told Ashley numerous times not to get involved in my battles or any one's battle for that matter because when you do, in the end, you will be the one ending up looking like the jerk. Besides that, I just feel like it is never a child's place to speak disrespectfully to an adult, even if the adult is antagonizing the child. I read the Facebook messages between Danielle and Ashley. Danielle said some pretty immature and harsh things herself to my daughter. It was a 47 year old against and 18 year old. I asked Ashley on numerous occasions not to get involved. Ashley's choices are her own and only she will suffer the consequences for her own actions. I have explained to Ashley that her choices do have a rippling effect on others. I know the best way to teach a child is to lead by example and I realize that I have been very guilty of living my life, at times, by the saying, "Do as I say and not as I do." I admit it. I'm human. I don't claim to be perfect. I get angry and have lost control of my emotions before and I have had no problem taking responsibility for my actions. I don't encourage bad behavior in others. I also wanted to add that it was me pulling into the parking lot in the Range Rover to Bottagra, not Ashley. Derek dropped her off that day. I know what you guys were thinking. LOL!

I'm starting to wonder if Kim G. was tipped off that I was getting a pedicure that day at Chateau. Seems coincidental that she was there at the same time as me. I respect Kim G.'s decision to stick out the friendship for a little longer and give Danielle more chances. I just told her that I was glad it was her dealing with Danielle's crazy ways and not me. I'm relieved to no longer be directly entangled in her sticky web. I'm sure Kim G. will find her way out like everyone else who enters Danielle's life. I guess we will just have to wait and watch what happens.

I picked Jacqueline, alouthgh I dislike Jackie, because Judalon looks masculine.If the battle had been Jacqueline vs Judith my vote would have been for the lovely Judith.

Kim G. is fake, and she goes back and forth ! SHE WANTS AIR TIME ON THE SHOW AND SHE THINKS SHE'S COOL WITH YOU GUYS LIKE YOU'RE FAMILY ! If you guys don't like danielle, simply stop talking about her on your blogs, facebooks, or anywhere else. You're giving her the attention she wants. I can understand why she acts the way she does. Put yourself in her place. An outsider, no true friends,and you guys are just putting more pressure on her. It's like highschool. When you feel so out of place, you don't know what the hell to do. just forget about her. forgive and forget.

jacqueline you talk about danielle's behavior, what about your behavior? maybe this is where ashley gets it. teresa started this whole thing and you joined in. teresa and you started this. now step up to the plate and take responsibility for your actions. this is why ashley thinks this behavior is okay. and for her to say well i only pulled her extentions are you kidding me...it's against the law to put your hands on someone else. and caroline they were the mean girls that night. i don't know how you can keep blaming danielle when teresa started the whole thing. it's on video, we see what happened. you all think your so tough, well step up and just say it, teresa started it and me and ashley jumped in on it.. set the example to your daughter by telling the truth, and making ashley tell the truth. money can't buy you class and this is clear from all of you, and your horrible behavior.. the only one who showed some class and normal behavior was dina, maybe that's why she left the show. good for her..

Ashley is absolutely wrong and all you do is tell her she is wrong when she calls you out and Bravo rewards her. When is the premier for her new show?

I wonder how it made you, Jacqueline feel when Danielle tried to comment on your parenting skills?

I am copying and pasting what you wrote in your own words.... I think that the "We hate Danielle and she hates us" storyline is getting old. Seriously, how many different ways can you show your disdain for someone? I'm so over it! I'm TIRED of addressing it. This show doesn't have to be so dark. I do realize how bitter I have sounded. Somehow that dirty D brings out the worst in me. I realize that it's not positive or healthy for me or my family so I'm letting it go. I will say a few more things first just to make sure I get it all out so I'm not compelled to say anymore and then I would like to move on Do you not see the hypocrysy in what you are saying? You say your tired of addressing it, yet you continue to address it....??? Do you not see that you yourself have done nothing more every week than to keep that fire going? Lets see if you can blog without having to bring her up. Until then, you are just as guilty as not only Dannielle, but everyone else as well. Don't say your over something and not going to continue on with something if you are going to do nothing more than go on and on and on and on and on like you have continued to do so. You are being a hypocrite

Your awesome dealing with a teenage daughter who is not from the original dad it is a hard situation. I have had two additional children from a wonderful man who seems to be as good as your man. I have had to go further finding out that her bio dad who was in my daughters life off and on only, because I provoked it and because I never wanted her to EVER come back to me and say I didn't let her see him. committed suicide on x-mas eve of this last yr. Be strict it makes them stronger and VERY knowledgeable about who they are. Be a Parent first not a friend. They WILL remember that more.

I absolutely love you on the show. you are the other down to earth one on here. You have a great heart and when that is burnt they are gone. Too bad you cant have Danielle completely out of your life. You did everything right with your daughter in terms of handling her and her behavior. She is at the age of adulthood so you cant control much of what she does. Do you think that you will leave the show too if the drama with Danielle keeps going on this path? Will someone be brought into the show as Dina's replacement like on many of the other housewives shows? again, you are a lovely person.

Hey Jaqueline

Your baby looks so cute, adorable and edible. Love your family and I love your personality because you tried to give people the chance and the benefit of the dout. Eventhough Danielle proved you wrong when you gave her a chance, just forgive her and hope she can one day really change and i mean really change cuz i do feel sorry for her. Ashley needs to learn how to respect you and you were right for putting her out during the poker game when she disrespected you. Proud of Dereck for not getting in between you and Ashley. That shows how mature he is, so far! About Kim G., I wouldn't talk to her about Danielle she might go back and tell Danielle what you said and what you did not said. Just be nice and keep it sweet and simple with her. Will miss Dina! Take care and keep up the good work. you look great From Stella

I love you and our family. your children are adorable. Good way to teach your dau. I've been there. YOur doing the right thing. eventually it will sink in to Ashely and she will get it. Don't trust Kim G. Stay away form her and don't listen to any of her gossip. If she brings gossip she also takes gossip is an old saying. Your so beautiful and your husband is kind. I love Gina and her cats and Lexi. i want to keep watching you and the Manzo's.

Dear Jacqueline, I am so happy for you and your husband. The baby is a true blessing, congratulations. I am glad you have figured dirty D out and are setting the boundaries and keeping your distance. Good for you!!! I WANTED TO WARN YOU THAT KIM G. is very bad news. She is just as deceitful as D and apparently only hangs out with her to be on the show. I thought from the very beginning that she just wanted to be one of the housewives. Keep your distance and do not engage in any conversation with her at all.

U are pretty, poised,elegant, calm and have a quiet grace that I admire. U have a firm hand with your kids, but your very big heart is plainly obvious. I like u. I liked the way u handled ur self on season one. It's hard to shut ur mouth n not try to cause more drama. But u did it. This season ur showing true grit in finally stating unhysterically (which gives u more credibility) that u are over Danielle and her crap. bravo! It seems to me that u are one of those rare people that actually DESERVE the good things & money u have in ur life! Finally, karma shows up in a good way with u! Ur kids, friends, and hubby are very lucky. Ur my Jackie O.. cheers!

Jacqueline I so love your personality. You are such an independent thinking individual and so real and honest. My goodness the way that you give everyone the benefit of the doubt and put your immediate family first exactly the way I desire to be. Don't change for no one AT ALL!!!!!

Hey Jacqueline, Some people may think your easily taken in by people but I think you would rather give someone a chance than immediately think the worse. Which is a very admirable trait, especially in this day and age, because your actually making your self more vulnerable. Hopefully the danielle's and kim G.'s of the world don't make you jaded. You are doing a great job with your daughter. I was happy to see you take a stand with her this week at the poker game when she was disrespecting you. I know how difficult it can be with a head strong daughter. Believe me there is light at the end of the tunnel. Around the second year away from home my daughter started to appreciate me and my advice. Stay strong!!

Dear Jacqueline, do you realize that you are pushing Ashley towards that guy even more by your actions? She still has some growing up to do and she needs for you and your home to be a "safe" place to go.

Being a good parent does not mean giving our kids things. Listening and loving unconditionally is the key. Don't give up on her and please, please don't ask her to leave "your" house when you get upset.

Things will get better. My girl is 32 now, so I know what you are going through.

The way you dealt with your daughter last night was perfect. You go girl. I understand you want to get along with everyone, but you can't. Danielle and Kim G are not your friend.

Your husband gave you good advise about Danielle and I am glad you are listening it it.

I love you and your sis-in-laws... and of course Teresa... I agree "Happy wife, happy Life". I love the show and Dina will be missed... In regards to Danielle, i can only say that i feel sorry for her daughters... she is so trashy... she is almost 50 yeards old and needs to grow up... She needs profesional help (biopolar) !!!

I thought it was a little intense when you kicked Ashely out of your house when the guys were playing poker. If my mom did that i would really be upset and wouldnt want to make up with her. Then again if i acted how Ashley did my mom would freak out lol. Anyway i love you and your a huge inspiration plus your little baby is adorable:)

I couldn't imagine spending $543 in a DELI...wowzers what all did you guys eat!!! even if that included alcohol for the night..YIKES lol

you are right about Kim G..she is a twofaced twit.

Jacquline, you are my favorite housewife you say it like it is, you give people a chance before you start judging them unlike your sister-in-law! I saw last nights episode and I am glad you kicked your daughter out of your house that little teenager needs to show you some respect your her mom not her sassy little high school friend. She needs to learn the hard way and she will shes too young still, and that comment that "shes on birth control and knows how to take care of herself?" like really??? Keep being the way you are makes you unique. Your baby is sooo cute. And stay away from the drama! Luv ya

I'm very impressed with your "tough love" approach with your daughter. That has to be the hardest act of any mother and I'm very proud of you. Chin up, she's growing up and finding her way. She appears to be a very intelligent, kind and sweet young lady who will surely find her way with your loving guidance. Kudos to you for also handling all the Danielle drama so well...watch your back!

i think you are a great mother and i like the way you kick your daughter out of the poker game for being disrespectful to you.(Jacqueline) I think children should know their place and respect their parents.

You need to get a backbone. All of this crap started because your sister in law decides who you can and cannot be friends with. That is scary. And there is no way that my husband has a safe in OUR house that #1 I don't have the combination to; #2 I have no idea of the contents; #3 he is bringing guns into my house without my knowledge.

You know I guess I am in the minority because I am a little disappointed in the way you are acting this season last season you seemed above the name calling now you are just as bad as the others. Calling danielle a pig right in front of your son just seems inmature and vial. I personally dont like all the back biting on either side but it seems to me your no better than Danielle.
