Jacqueline reflects on the night of the hair pull and wonders if Danielle was hurt or just playing the victim.

on Jul 20, 20100

 

You know that old excuse, "My dog ate my homework"? Well, that's sort of what happened to my last blog. Our family was down in LBI (Loveladies) for two weeks so I brought my computer and my phone with me. I had been working on my blog on my computer when I noticed that the battery was about to die. I went to get my charger for it when I realized that my puppy had chewed it in half. It was too annoying to write it from my phone so I decided to wait until I got home. Once I got home, I decided to just combine the two episodes into one long blog. So here I go....

WOW! That really was an unbe"weave"able night! Admittedly, I DID think that Ashley made a funny and clever pun and I laughed out loud at the line, but I NEVER wanted or expected Ashley to post it on the internet. I think I may have even started with the puns by saying, "Come on Ashley, it's time to 'weave' Danielle alone." I think that's why Ashley said it was my idea. I guess I sent her mixed signals. I think she confused my laughing at the pun jokes with her thinking she had the green light to post something like that on the internet. I was VERY against her posting ANYthing about Danielle on the internet and when I'd see or hear she did, I would yell at her for it and I would make her take it down immediately. I don't think the incident that night was funny at all, but like I have explained before, I will find the humor in any bad situation and the pun jokes on the weave were funny to me. Sorry, not going to lie. Maybe it was disrespectful, but it was also humorous. I think I also found the humor in Teresa saying, "Is bitch better?" and running like a gazelle in high heels and a chinchilla coat. Never mind, I don't expect you to get it or find the humor I find it in it because that's just me. It was the first chuckle I had after a stressful night. I think my husband and I made it very clear to Ashley that we were not happy at all with Ashley's actions. We conveyed that to her many times. We ALL acted like a bunch of fools, but I guess it made good TV.

Despite the way it looked, I'm being honest with you when I say that I STILL don't believe Teresa was ever going to do any physical harm to Danielle. But Teresa was hell bent on getting in Danielle's face, to see if she had the guts to say to her face everything Danielle was saying and doing behind her back. She was going to call Danielle out and she WAS hoping to put an end to all the nonsense, but things just escalated too quickly and spun out of control.

There were rumors that Danielle befriended Teresa's husband's lawyer's wife in attempt to pry for private legal information about them from her. When we saw the show later we noticed that the wife was even sitting at Danielle's table. When Danielle was taunting Teresa that her house was in foreclosure, it confirmed that the rumors we had heard were true. The only problem was that the house that was in foreclosure was an investment property of theirs and NOT the house they live in. STILL, to this day, the house Teresa lives in is NOT in foreclosure. Danielle got her facts wrong and was spreading them everywhere she could. Danielle had also tried to befriend people in Dina's life and began to feed them with many damaging lies. On top of that, Danielle also gave them a series of numbers to help set up a case. The lies Danielle told them, along with the separate lies she told in a different story to the public trying hide from what she REALLY did, were BOTH just as despicable. There is proof of what Danielle did and TRIED to do and it was a LOT more than just "giving a phone number out." As far as Danielle saying that she hasn't tried to dig up anything on us ... LIE! I She is relentless. She actually tried to get a relative of a friend of mine to act as a friend of hers on the show and she wanted to feed her what to say about us. She actually called a meeting with others she filmed with to plot out what she wanted them to say about us. She is sick and she is a LIAR! Danielle constantly tries to stir the pot with her foul tongue. She is continually making up and spreading outrageous and dangerous lies about us. She is continually plotting behind the scenes to bring us down, continually spreading lies about us, calling the media to sell stories on us, stalking us, sending us threats through others, ETC. She is a dangerous person on many levels and hangs out with dangerous people.

I think Jacqueline & hubby should set Ashley straight on her manners.Ashley is very disrespectful,arrogant,rude young lady and needs a course on how to respect people. Maybe she is following in Theresa's footsteps. Jacqueline you are an awsome lady who seems respectful of other people's feelings and Dina is so,so,but Theresa is off her rocker.She needs behaviour management.

After that negative comment why would you bring God up? God doesnt want harm or bad to come to ppl! You are really ignorant! If you paied any attention she wasnt harrasing them it was the other way around. they talked about her 24/7 like they had nothing else going on in their life Boo!

Bitterness, venom spewing, etc.> never attractive qualities darling. Please do some serious self-reflection and realize that as bad as Danielle may be, you are coming off worse. Also, don't judge- only react to what she's done to YOU, whatever happened in her life is NONE of your concern.

Jacqueline i feel so sorry for you and your family. I think you all should gather up some people who are willing to testify against Danielle and file a harrassment suit against her. People always tell you to ignore her but it seems like that wouldn't be enough to get rid of her. She is a terrible person but just focus on your family and staying close to them because what goes around comes around and God has something waiting for her

Danielle I understand the family you are a part of now treated you poorly and unacceptable in the beginning ..Is this true?? Its obvious that youre a very good tendered hearted woman ,..why would they not open their hearts and homes to you??

I really like your husband Chris because he seems to be an awesome man, but last night he said that you were happier in Italy because Danielle was not around. What he fails to realize is that you all started the drama, not Danielle! She is only protecting herself from your family's uncalled for acts! He needs to stop you from hanging around Teresa, she's the one with issues!

I feel sorry for Danielle. She is a lost soul that just wants to be included. She can't win no matter what she does, so she stopped trying to impress all of you. agree, she is shady, and her past is very scary, but she is like an abused puppy. Where is your empathy? I am not saying you should be her friend, but stop talking about her and instigating with her. It only brings you down to her level. How about some compassion?

I think you and caroline are the most real of the whole show. Teresa gets on my nerves her hubby needs to take hold of all her spending habits she is oblivious to how stressed out joe seems about her spending habits. And also I put her in the same line as Danielle she seems to live to start trouble she should have ignored Danielle that nite at the fashion show. And as far as Kim G is concerned she likes playing both sides STAY AWAY!. You have more class so choice your friends wisely and be aleader not a follower {TERESA} seems to love trouble.

Where have you gone? We miss your blogs! I just wanted to tell you that the night of the hair pulling, when you were standing in front of Kim G's Bentley, you reminded me of the Chinese protester that stood in front of the tank!!! Fabulous!

Way to go! Leaving Ashley behind when you went to Italy restored my faith in you as a conscientious mom. Thank goodness you have a good man standing behind you, providing support..You're truly blessed! I was pretty tough on you a few weeks ago..but I'm sure many of us have had a change of heart...Way to go mom!!!

Jacqueline, I feel bad for you to have to see Ashley getting into trouble over someone like that. I really hope that she realizes that its not worth it. Unfortunately, she will have to learn on her own. I have a 2 year old daughter that is getting me ready for those times lol. They say that girls are the most difficult to raise. As a mother, your first instinct is to protect your babies, not matter how old they are. There is just a point when we can't make them listen and we have to just pray that they make the right choices. She will come around. She loves you and I believe things will change for the better for you. Take care and the best of luck to you and your family!

I like you I think you're sweet and trying your best with Ashley. TOUGH LOVE is the answer to gettin her to straighten up, I know what she did was wrong she got to pay for her actions I hope she learned her lesson. I know what you have said was not intentional we mom's make our mistakes who doesn't? Yea Ashley knew better- she is not a kid anymore although she acts like it sometimes. Anyways, I wanted to say don't you think it's time to IGNORE Danielle and forget about her? Don't let her become your obbession just because of what she says or does, walk away because this is what Danielle wants from you all, she wants to fight with whoever she knows and you all are giving her that, I'm serious IGNORE her if not then you all are letting her WIN. Walking away and Ignorin her makes you a bigger person. I am so sorry you have this LUNATIC to deal with but the truth is you all don't have to deal with her. Sometimes in life we have to set our boundries towards people who are DRAMATIC, LIARS & ETC. When I started ignorin people and walking away, I noticed the difference by golly I'm grateful I did it, I'm happy and my life is so much peaceful. You all can do the same too - I wish you all the best :)

well?
well?

we want some blogging action going on!

Hello, I really think you should get the ladies together and decide NOT to give Danielle any "on air" time meaning DONT say her name dont respond to her comments just have a Danielle free zone, I think by doing this she may get tired of stirring up trouble and who knows maybe get the reality check she needs and WAKE UP and realize that she needs to stop acting like the victim and realize 80% of the time she is the one who starts trouble. I will say I dont think what Kim G did was right and she should be ashamed of playing both sides and why would she tell people about Danielle looking for her real mom???!!! If you were smart you would stay away from all the negative people and just stick with family and your "true" friends. I hope all of you take my advise because Danielle thrives on being talked about and in the spot light take it away and maybe she will STOP acting like she does.

God Bless all of you

Jacqueline, I absolutely love you! I real housewives all the time, its my favorite show. Its what my mom and i bond upon! I am 13, and you, teresa, and caroline are my favorite housewives on the show, because you ladies have your head screwed on straight, and you all know what your doing. You all make me laugh, like the one episode where danielles energist (or something like that ?) called you and you were playing on your apps. My mom and i laughed so hard on that one. Your the best, and don't let anyone else say that your not. Your wonderful, responsible, and one of my favorite housewives! and i am watching the show at the moment, and your on :D love you so much, girlfriend!

I am so happy you finally had your son. Could you fill me in as far as your story. I just suffered my 3rd miscarriage and I am 42 with no children. I ordered the new bracelet offered as I hope to get some inspiration.

Help! Jeanine

Why don't you blog on a regular basis like the other ladies do? I thought that you were under contract to do so after each episode airs. Really disappointed in you.

Jaqueline, after each episode I really look forward to reading your blog and seeing your side of the story. I've been disappointed this season. Week after week you're the only housewife who hasn't completed her blog! The other housewives manage to keep theirs up despite raising their children, keeping a house AND running a business/going on book tours- it's part of your job! I really hope we get to hear from you about the last few episodes soon.

I'm Just Sayin...
I'm Just Sayin...

Jacqueline,

Most of the time you have a good heart, you want to do good things, be a good influence...WHAT HAPPENED? The book that includes Danielle can be checked out at most libraries or special ordered. You guys got it from the library. I would have had a bad reaction like an allergy to it and to her also, but that was A YEAR AGO!!! DROP IT!!

She did pay her debt to society, she now deserves a break, but the main person not giving her a break is herself!! We all know that. So when a person is unable to conquer their past or get a grip on reality, it is our duty as a person living in the same part of town (as you do), to not reflect on their past but help them into todays world. As unlikely as it would be for you to be that person for her now, she was unable to deal with it when you were. You gave her a helping hand and all she knows to do is snap at it like a shark and demand more of your time & effort and she was unable to accept your kindness. It's a mental quirk. She wants to be friends with you, but doesn't know when to stop demanding your time, etc.

But her daughters are lovely and even in their youth show more rationality that Danielle does, and they need your love and attention.

Danielle wants loyalty toward her like she's the Queen of England! But she doesn't understand that that means you can also have other friends, not her and her alone. She wants to captivate and conquor all who come her way. She just doesn't get it that there are others in your world. I hope she doesn't do more harm to herself and others, but how likely is it that she will stop, or even know how to stop, let alone WHEN to stop?!!

Please share your life in a joyful manner--you are so happy with Chris and your boys. Your daughter is a real disappointment, I am sure to you and Chris, but to us also. Please keep her off your filming time. It isn't helping you or her. When she calls you vulgar names to your face, ON TV, and laughs about it, that should not be shown!!! She is SO DISRESPECTFUL, why include her when you could be sharing good, positive a fun things and loving moments with your husband and sons, since she is neither happy, loving or fun? PLEASE exclude her from your air time!!

You have some good people on the show, share time with them! Caroline has so much going for her, especially GOOD SENSE, good values, business knowledge, and FUN!! Teresa is now over the edge with Danielle and is a lost cause, but you have to know SOMEBODY that isn't a provoker, liar, and manipulater! Get them on the air with you!!

BUT, on a positive note, I forget which episode it was, but you, Caroline & Teresa were together, someone asked a question & in the silence before the answer, you bit into something (souned like celery), but it was the CCCRRRUUUNNNCHH! heard around the world!! I couldn't stop laughing!!

Love you, but please hang with the clean crowd!!

Dear Obsess Jacqueline,

I hope you never blog again. You are so obsess with Danielle is beyond believe. You truly need time out before you have a break down. I really men this with respect.

Please take the time to do some reflection.

Mrs. Jaq,

From the jump, what should have happened was you and Danielle just duke it out. It would have avoided everyone else in your fam from getting so caught up in the Danielle web of terror. Her intial problem is with you chuckig her to the side. Grow some cajones girl and just confront her about everything. She is plucking at all of you until she gets to you. So to aviod anyone else getting tossed up in this crap.... handle your business with her once and for all.

I knwo your sweet but enough is enough.

I to have a daughter Ashley that is 18 and we ar also Italian. Although our daughters are of age, does not mean they they make good decissions. Your Ashley seems to have low confidence lecvel and that is due to the relationsjip you have with her. I feel bad tht Ashley is always been dumped on. I see Ash as a very lovely girl trying to find her way.I love the show, I hope to watch next week see you and Chris suport your daughter, Help her. Ashley is a lovely girland your a great mother. so with that said, learn to discuss and and support Ashley, you will have better results. Good Luck.

Jacqueline,

As a loyal fan of your show, I must express my opinion about the episode dated 7/26/10. Shortly after, I was quite disturbed to learn Danielle accused your daughter of assault and that she told her ex-conman and right-hand goonie, Danny, that "I want to kill her". Is that not a personal threat? Whether it be "bitch" or "foreclosure" or "coke whore"... does not expressing to the fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey that Danielle wants "to kill her", a viable statement made on-air to BRAVO, a physical threat to Ashely's life? Regardless, your daugther was defending you in a moment of conflict and hysteria. I would act the same way with my own family. These words spoken by Danielle are unforgivable and a verifible threat to Ashley's life and well-being. "Let's get her, LET'S KILL HER, let's pull her down". Now, the remainder of the show was, personally, with the spiritual therapist and so-on, a little ridiculous. However, I think that when the law gets involved, it is a serious matter. And, dealing with that insane woman, Danielle, who, obviously does not even need to be instigated by BRAVO to cause drama or controversy, is a disgusting entertainment value that, even with a resolution, can never be resolved. I understand that the women of RHNJ are not being compensated for their performance and I am on your side. The ladies have entertained me (and my boyfriend) for several seasons now, and I hope that you will deservably be compensated in the future and continue with your shows. I hope that everything works our for your family and wish the best for you and Ashley. I look forward to the next season and thank you for all of the entertainment!!!!!

i dont only think youre beautiful on the outside, but also on the inside. i like the way you put your daughter in check. a lot on mothers these days just go along w/ what ever, but i notice with you RIGHT IS RIGHT AND WRONG IS WRONG. someone raised you right, and i see youre trying to do the samething w/ashley. your daughter is no different then any other teenager, but she has issues.(big-mouth), and doesnt want to listen to anyone. with that problem, she'll have to learn on her own. dont worry everything you taught her WILL kick-in. i just like you so much, keep the good work up...

I have to admit that Caroline is my favorite Mom on the show but I wanted to comment on D. I'm always very tolerant of people too...UNTIL they mess with my family! so I understand. It's great that you are there for Ashley. Most of the watchers see through the DS drama so don't worry about it so much!
