Hello Bravo blog readers and people who love to comment! I appreciate your love and support! However, there are a few of you who are concerned with where my loyalty and friendship stand with Teresa. Don't be concerned! WE ARE GOOD! Although I am sure she will appreciate you're concern.
Teresa of ALL people should understand the position I am in, because Teresa was in the exact same position at one point, between my sister-in-law and me. Teresa was friends with my sister-in-law many years before Teresa and I became friends through the introduction of my sister-in-law. (Much like how I was introduced to Melissa through Teresa). We all would hang out together. (Much like how my family now hangs out with Teresa and HER family). When my sister-in-law and I were feuding, Teresa chose not to take a side. She remained friends with both of us, because she never wanted to get in the middle of a family feud. She knows that families usually make up in the end. She listened as a friend to both of us and gave us her opinions and advice. I respected her for that. I would never have expected her to choose one side over the other. I don't believe my sister-in-law expected her to choose either. She was there for the both of us. If Teresa had chosen a side and decided to only be loyal to her first, long time friend (my sister-in-law), it would have only added more fuel to the fire, and it would have made it a lot harder for all involved to make up. Things would have been a lot more awkward between us all in the end. I appreciated Teresa's friendship. Would you call that playing both sides or trying to diffuse a bad situation? Would you say that her intentions were good or bad?
JACQUELINE, YOU WERE MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE, HOWEVER YOU REALLY CHANGED THIS SEASON, AS I SEE IT NOT FOR THE BETTER. YOU SEEM TO ACT A LOT LIKE TERESA , THE DINNER CONVERSATION ABOUT BLOW....S WAS NOT APPROPRIATE. THAT WAS SO DISGUSTING IN FRONT OF JOES PARENTS,BUT THEN AGAIN THAT WHOLE FAMILY IS TRASHY. I SURE HOPE YOU GO BACK TO THE JACQUELINE WE ALL LIKED.
Sulfur water is so gross! We used to have sulfur water in our house and it did smell horrible and taste disgusting. We didn't drink it at all. I don't even know if we cooked with it.
You are a good friend and I think everybody wishes they would just get over the BS! Petty BS, jealousy and competition is all this is.
I loved this episode too because it showed everybody having fun! Too much drama goes on with all the housewives shows! Lighten it up a little Bravo!
Jacqueline, I have to honestly say that you and Caroline are my favorite housewives! The two of you are neutral and only give advice when asked. Melissa is always running her mouth to her husband about Teresa and Teresa never speaks to Joe about much of the situation unless Joe is present when something comes up. I love the relationship that you and Chris have and the relationship that he has with your daughter. You seem like a really nice and generous person to be around and have as a friend. By the way do not tell Chris but my husband thinks that you are the most "beautiful" housewife out of all of them. You are very pretty because of the way you carry yourself with being modest and not being flashy with clothes and luxuries and your makeup is not too heavy like others. Keep up the great work of being a good friend and Chris is blessed to have a woman like you to call his "wife and best friend".
You are a very wise young woman. I remember how you tried to be fair and neutral first season with Danielle. You came to your own conclusion which is how it should be.
Your blog is positive and supportive which is not always easy to be. Choosing how you react to a situation is a life skill worth gaining.
Jacqueline, you're such a great friend. I'd be proud to call you friend. I think you are funny and sweet. Now I'm off to make a nutella pizza. lol
I have sister in law issues- from day one they chose to not like me..petty stuff. Question is, how did you and Caroline work past your differences and end up in such a great place today? Please spill!!! :)
Jacqueline I think you are doing a great job at keeping it mutual with your relationship with Teresa and Melissa. BUT it seems impossible for Teresa to forgive AND forget! She's making it seem like she has done nothing wrong.
Jaqueline, OMG girl, you were TOO FUNNY up in the Catskills. That's the most we've seen you out of your shell, and it's FABULOUS. Try not to be so diplomatic and proper in the future, because cutting loose serves you well, and I loved being along for the ride even if it was just from living room. LOVED the personality that came out of you while wearing the Elmer Fudd hat three sheets to the wind. Too funny. XOXO
Jacqueline, I love your personality and how much fun you are having since "D" made her exit. I hope you will continue to stand by Teresa. Melissa is trying to worm her way in with you and Caroline to spite her sister-in-law...I hope you see that. Melissa has her snarky sisters to back her up which is why Teresa needs you. I think this is a different situation than the one with Dina only because there was a third party involved in the differences. We watch Melissa's interviews and her conversations with her sisters & Kathy and see she really doesn't want to put the past behind her. Even Kathy keeps attacking Teresa in her blogs when she should just butt out. Please stay true to Teresa because she stood behind you last year.
Hi Jaqueline! I enjoyed this episode so much! Out of all the Housewives shows, (N.Y., Orange Co., etc.) yours is truly the best! Although all of you are doing quite well financially, everyone of your family's are down to earth. I have grown to really like you this season! You are hysterical! Last season I paid more attention to Teresa, which you can't help but love her! I just wish Caroline would lighten up a little. She put a little damper on the Catskills get-together, I would love to see her just let loose and really have fun! Again, you guys are great and I wish nothing but the best for everyone, especially Teresa and her situations! Diane L. from Ohio
Love you Jacquiline, you are so fortunate to have a good looking husband and a big family with good friends. I envied allof you for having so mush fun. I enjoyed seeing the show with out the drama, but sometimes drama is good to see on tv not at home.
Jacqueline, Teresa is your friend the other two (not caroline) came on the show to promote a singing & catering career that's why they're trying to turn people against Teresa. And they seem to do exactly what she does & also see lots of faults in Teresa but fail to look at themselves which is questionable. Every time they say nasty things about Teresa I tend to like her even more because I know the reason why they came on the show. All this unecessary drama & tension has taken the spotlight from the original housewives. I hope you can see that.
Are you sure Melissa isn't trying to befriend you to try to get to Teresa? Don't understand how anyone can trust her after watching her this season. Wouldn't want her as a friend, she can't be trusted.
You were right not to be mad at Teresa for not taking sides when you & Caroline were fighting. Too bad Teresa doesn't have the basic common sense to apply this thinking to her cousin Kathy, whom she 'loved like a sister'.
Looks like fun was had in the Catskills (tho we all could have gone without knowing what goes on behind the Giudices closed doors).
I love you and your family. I strongly dislike Melissa and Kathy, I just think they're way too manipulative and they like to throw fuel on the fire and then sit back and watch it burn... it's difficult to watch this season. I'm happy that you have found a way to be if not friends (i'm not sure where you stand with them) at least friendly with Teresa's SIL and cousin. I'm not sure I would be able to be that corgial and kind to people who hurt my friend the way they have hurt Teresa. Good for you for being the bigger person and staying out of it! I was sad Ashley wasn't in this episode, I don't care what anybody says... she's a sweet girl, just going through some issues. You're such a great mom! Love watching your family and Teresa's family- I wish we could see more of your boys though!
Jacqueline, you are my favorite of the wives, And you are very correct in not taking sides its a family fued you can be both their friends with out getting in the fued. No one should question your friendship with Teresa because it is obvious that your families mesh well together and that you love each other like sisters! - Wish the best to you and you family always
*Hopefully this gets posted, none of my comments ever get posted*
I think it's different when you think about Dina/Jacqueline relationship and Teresa/Melissa relationship. Its clear that Melissa HATES Teresa and Melissa is JEALOUS of Teresa. How Melissa is damaging the relationship between her husband and his family, it's despicable! So, you should stick up for Teresa and not have an relationship with the Gorgas at this point.
I don't get it. Teresa is a good friend for you and Dina. But, you don't seem to be a good friend for Teresa. Sorry, but it seems that you are not protecting Teresa in this mess. Obviously, no family feud should be broadcast to the world and sides should not be taken. However, Kathy and Melissa week after week, blog after blog have been attacking Teresa. Don't you think , you could tell them to chill or stop all the bashing on Teresa?
I enjoy watching your husband, Chris, and you on the show. You are such a great couple together; you definitely compliment each other. He is my favorite husband; very classy!
I've always loved you but last night you had a whole house laughing it up. Your great Jacquline and an amazing friend, wife and mother.
Jacqueline you are so funny and beautiful and real..just love you!! You are a loyal friend to Teresa unlike Caroline. You also have a very hunky husband lucky you..you were soooo funny in the Catskills, you and Teresa were like Lucy and Ethel from I Love Lucy..so funny..it was a great episode..except for wet blanket Caroline.
In regards to your loyalty to Teresa, it does not seem to be at 100%. You were not friends w/ Melissa when the show started, and your loyalty should have been to your friend, Teresa. Dina had no problem sticking up for Teresa on WWHL.
As a member of the cast, you should be honest about what's happening on the show. Melissa is manipulative and bashes Teresa every chance she gets. It wasn't all peaches and cream after the meeting at your house. Let's be real Jacqueline!!!
I love watching what good friends you and Teresa are. You guys are so FUNNY together and it is great entertainment. I love how you guys enjoy eachothers company and laugh a lot. I am glad you guys don't waste your time talking negative about others. It is refreshing. YOU are such a HOOT! I was cracking up when you were gathering up those two huge bottles of wine for Catskills.
I love, love, love you!
"Fake it until you make it!" I love that! I'll be using that one in the future. Thanks Jaqueline! Hilarious episode. Loved the loopy conversations at the cabin!
Jacqueline, I'm shocked anyone questioned your loyalty to Teresa. I think you go WAY beyond what is expected of a good friend. She doesn't listen to anything you say........with her, you have to agree with her, no matter how insane her logic is. Bottom line, she just doesn't "get it"!!! On anything!! I think you're a great friend it seems to everyone. But would love to know what pushed you to the point to punch Caroline. :) I think Chris is just great!! he has that sneaky little grin while remaining so quiet. That twinkle in his eyes let's you know he's up to something, even if it stays in his head. Yall make a great couple.
Jacqueline... What a true friend you are to tell your friend the truth! It is hard to find true friends and for those fans who are saying you are playing both sides probably don't know what it means to be a true friend and they don't have any. Staying neutral but giving your opinion when asked is the way to be, as long as you are being true to yourself and your friends that's all that matters.
Thanks for clearing up the frienship misconception. I would truly be devastated if I didn't get to see you and Tre goofing off. I know you like everyone, but I can't stomach Melissa...she can't say two words together without bringing up Teresa and how hurt she is. The girl does not take blame for anything....it is unreal. I am debating not watching anymore cause it is depressing that it is going on this long- but I need my fill of J-La!
Love you so much!!! You are the most honest, sweet person I have ever seen on a show like this. Keep being such a good friend and overall person! XOXOXO
For those that think you should tell Melissa and Kathy to stop bashing Teresa - then you would be doing the same thing M & K are getting bashed for. People are bashing on Kathy that she's not minding her own business so I have no idea why people would want you to do the same. You're treating the situation perfectly. And you are correct, if you take Teresa's side, then what happens when and if Melissa and Teresa make up? It WOULD be awkward. And especially since Teresa understands and agrees, where's the problem? Also want to add that you had me LOL this episode!! Great one liners.
Jacqueline, I love you & your personality so much. Your so easy going but at the same time you don't let anyone step on your toe. You're a true friend that always gives great advice & I'm looking forward to watching you more.
You and Chris seem to be a fun loving couple. For the life of me I don't understand all the public conversation about sex, oral or otherwise with aids needed. Totally inappropriate on Teresa's part, but what isn't. She is borish at best, I'm sorry you got caught up in that conversation. Chris appears to be reserved and you a little more playful, which is a nice mix. You appear to be a lovely woman with good morals and values, please don't lower yourself to the Gorga/Guidice lifestyle, it doesn't suit you. As you know, none of us truly know any of you so making blanket statements about your character shouldn't be made. For all appearances, you are a lovely, kind, gentle woman who appears to love her husband and children as well as the rest of the families.
Honestly, I love how you let so much of others drama roll Off your back. You and Bethany are my only true favorites.
Jacqueline could you post the recipe for the nutella pie you made in the recent show. I been looking online but cannot seem to find the type you make on the show. I would LOVE to attempt to make this.
Your advice about not taking sides is very wise. I've seen way too many family fights (some continue) all because one person wanted someone else to take a side and when they didn't they were alienated. Wrong to do but it happens. Nobody should feel like they have to take a side. It's funny you said there was a time lapse between alcohol and the quads cause when you watch the show someone on there actually said "oh this is good, we're drinking and then we hop on the quads". That is a recipe for disaster!
What a fantastic episode! The gentleman Antonia danced with is a friend of mine and I was so proud of him! She looked so cute with him too! You are too sweet for words, Jacqueline!
I've loved you ever since season one. I thought it was cool that you stuck up fir Danielle. I think you and Caroline need to be there more for Teresa. She is your friend. I saw Caroline on wwhl say that she wasn't about to reveal whAt side she's on with regards to Melissa and Teresa. It's unfortunate that even Dina will come to teresa's defense but you and Caroline are almost neutral. I'm not understanding why.
JAcqueline, YOU are my favourite housewife :) Come down to Australia one day, there are a lot Aussies out here that would love to meet you!
Jacqueline, You are handling the Teresa / Melissa situation correctly. The best thing you can be is a peacemaker and being there for your friend no matter what. Friendship is about honesty and guiding your friends to a good place when they get side tracked. You obviously want the best for her and it shows. I think you are an amazing person and she's blessied to have a friend like you. Keep up the good work!!
