OK, let's talk about the reunion. It was miserable. We're currently shooting Season 4 and the night before the reunion we were all together at an event that should have never ended the way it did. I can't reveal too much, but I can tell you that there was an incident, which led to an ugly confrontation that destroyed a friendship and quite possibly put an irreparable divide between families. Jacqueline was really affected by it, and that's why she didn't attend.

I don't regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn't hide my feelings. I didn't see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga's face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa's true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn't deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it. He's a great guy with a huge heart, and I hurt him. This is what ugly is, and I don't like the feeling. I texted Joe and Melissa the moment I saw it and apologized. It was wrong and in my anger and frustration I didn't realize how the truth would affect others. Lesson learned.
