Jacqueline Laurita sounds off about the Fabellini party.

on Sep 12, 20120

I was very disappointed by the obvious calculating and scheming ways of certain people in this episode, but it doesn't surprise me. It’s a shame. Teresa knew exactly what she was doing by bringing Dina into that conversation about Caroline while the cameras were on them, and Dina had to know what she was getting into as well. That's all I will say on that.



As far as the Fabellini party goes, I didn't expect to be invited. It was what it was, and I was just very frustrated at that point in time with the person Teresa had become. I knew at that point that her make-up with me was not sincere, and I had been waiting for her true feelings to come out on camera. As for me, I really didn't need more aggravation in my life, so I was happy to avoid as much as I could at that point.

It's a fact Teresa and Kim D., were in it together to set Melissa up via. Angelo Vrohidis.. Larry Guarino who is the Manager of the Lookers Gentlemen Club stated that Angelo had little to no conttact with Melissa. That in fact, Melissa was a bartender for a short time, she was never a dancer. So therefore, if Meliss didn't recognize Angelo right away, it because he wasn't her boss, Larry was.

Jacqueline, Why is it wrong that Teresa spoke to Dina? Both you and Caroline pretend you don't want to get involved in the fight between the Gorgas and Guidices yet you both do things to make their relationship worse. You talk horribly to Melissa and Kathy about Teresa. To look in a mirror.

Don't listen to the haters (I know you don't). You're a good person and did not deserve to be treated that way. I hope Teresa leaves the show to get some help.

Jaq, I'm so glad you finally opened your eyes to see the REAL Teresa. It's a shame that you wasted all that time and energy. Good thing, you know now and can move forward to bigger and better things. None of this stuff matters anymore. I've enjoyed and appreciate you sharing your lives on the show. I hope you and your family will come back next season (without Teresa). You, the Manzos, the Gorgas and the Wakiles are the only reason I watch the show. Take care of Nicholas and keep us posted how he's progressing. I'm praying for him and your family. You will be fine. One day at a time. Love you always!

Wait this guy works at the salon 1 day, ( as stated by the owner) happens to be the 1 time treresa gets her hair done outside of her home and Jacqueline set this up? These people who think this must also be the people buying her fake cookbook.

I think our blogging needs to be brought to another level. I want to do a show. The Household Wives blogger followers.  My idea folks! We can travel to the various states and follow up on these women.  Possibly investigate how much is truth and how much is fake.

I think it would be fun.

Bellisamo:  Melissa never danced at the gentleman's club.  She was a BARTENDER.  And Jacqueline got a text that something was happening but she couldn't have known if it was legit or how it would go down.  I defy anyone to produce a photo of her supposed time as a dancer.  If she was a dancer I'm sure someone somewhere would have had a photo or some sort of proof.  Women who go into dancing usually have had bad relationships with their fathers, or abuse, and Melissa doesn't fit the profile.  If what that scum bag said about her was true, I imagine he would  have had some kind of payroll record of it which was never produced.  I feel certain  Theresa was in on it or at the very least, enjoyed it.  Cmon idiots, what man, looking as scummy as him, with his teeth, would work in a salon, and only for a day?  And why would Teresa have her makeup done there on that one day that he happened to be there.  And why would Teresa, when she commented on it say that "He wasn't out of line"  D straight he was out of line.   She's an awful person.

People seem to be losing sight of the real issue here. Melissa danced in a gentlemen's club (not that anyone even cares) and her past caught up with her. That's not Teresa's fault! Jacqueline got tipped off and remained quiet all night until the very last moment and then egged it on relentlessly. Nice going.  What goes around, comes around. Teresa is being persecuted but she's still standing and is still successful despite how others try to destroy her.

Jacqueline I find it funny that you received a text from a mutual friend and you and the Manzos and Kathy were all texting under the table.  Lie.  It was a set up by a producer and you went for it.  As a friend or ex friend, I would have removed myself from any involvement either way and I would have not got involved.  You were more than happy to be involved.  You had Caroline the head cheer leader egging you on and you used that to move forward.  As a close or ex close friend, I would have removed myself from the situation.  Even though I may not speak to my friend again, I would have not nailed the cross that hung Theresa.  In addition, your friend to Melissa will never be long and lasting.  You might have kind feelings towards one another, but as an Italian, the distance will come now or soon.  It will be differant.

 

Too bad.  I did feel you and Caroline were huge bullies this season.

Jacqueline, Nice blog.  Thanks for organizing my thoughts for me.  Good luck with the babies and Ashley (however she is spelling it these days). You have to love teenage daughters.  Our prayers are with your family!

I think Teresa planned the whole thing with the help of Kim D. I think Teresa sells out anyone for money or publicity...... Teresa and Kim D are the next Honey Boo Boo show....very sad and doing anything for $$$

It's obvious Teresa lacks social skills in handling things correctly. There are things she could have done in hind sight. I see a  lot of things spinning in her head and the angel and devil sitting on each shoulder but I did not see a set up by Teresa...No doubt she loves her brother but  you made a situation horrible by telling Melissa she was set up instead of letting Melissa process things on her own and give her sistr in law a benefit of a doubt.  Melissa latched on what you and your texting friend said as soon as you said it.  I lost respect for you for that.  Kim D is a snake and that guy was too.  She is not Teresa's friend, you were.  Kim D played all of you like a fiddle and is laughing all the way to the bank.

Jacqueline, I am so disappointed at you... as well as Caroline for instigating without knowing the whole situation. I thought in the beginning that Teresa did wrong by not telling Melissa. This was at the beginning. I could see and understand why Teresa did not mention to Melissa prior to attending the Posce Fashion Show what had ocurred in the Salon. I totally can understand that because of the whole drama going on with the family. But she was surprised that the bald guy would go up to Melissa and at that time did the right thing by taking Melissa into the bathroom and pulled her aside and told her what went on at the salon. That Is the Right Thing to Do.. had she not done that, then I would of been saying Wow... But it didn't even work out... it worked against Teresa for telling her. Melissa also did wrong by jumping into conclusions. I think that because all this time Teresa and Melissa were not getting along that now that they are getting together and being a family, you have others like you and Caroline...instigating and making sure the cameras are around to steer the public against Teresa.  I think you because you felt a little jealousy that she made up with Melissa and doesn't need you anymore .. i think you would of prefered Teresa never making up with Melissa.. because she would of needed you.

 

What I as the viewer saw was Teresa didn't want to know nothing , walked away and did the right thing. The fact that she didn't go outside wasn't that she was a coward, it was to avoid the drama ... enough is enough. This family want to get along but now you , and Caroline, add wood to the fire.

 

I was very very surprised to see how you quickly received texts and here comes Caroline, jumping to it... doesn't want to do anything with the drama but surely when she sees there is drama with Teresa, here she comes to add her two cents.

 

Teresa did the right thing to bring it up to Melissa. it would of looked wrong had she not done that, because she would of looked shady. There is nothing Teresa could do that you and Caroline would jump at the opportunity to make things wrorse for the lady.. REally Jacquline, look at the video that all the viewers saw and analize the situation.. you didn't make it better you made things worse, not to mention Caroline.. ufffff

Jack i truely liked you but you seem to be playing into Caroline's evil scheme, cos when she hates someone she drags them down. Now all i can see is the real evil woman Caroline is. She hasn't said what Tre did to her, that's why she wants to pull her down.

    But on the other hand am sure there are stuff you told Teresa in confidence which she has not told anyone. That shows u a loyal friend. Make it Jack Caroline will come around to bite you soon.

I see most of the show as scripted, however your relationship with Teresa seems authentic. I can totally see how all this happened. You got dragged in with Caroline's resentment towards Teresa for the problems she was having with Dina. You were showing an allegiance with your husbands family, totally understandable. Dina strikes me as a smart cookie. Whatever it is she's upset with Caroline with I'm sure it's justified. In a previous season Caroline gets totally hysterical over Danielle interfering in Dina's custody case, Dina seems completely dumbfounded by Caroline's pretentious indignation. That seemed very odd to me. Instead of Dina being grateful for Caroline's emotional tirade in defense of her, she seemed kinda put off by it. I saw a red flag. In the past you have actually come to blows with Caroline, so I don't think it's a stretch for her to have some issues with family members. Teresa was completely reasonable to accuse you of setting her up. You've done it before. I'm not sure it was malicious. Bravo doesn't seem to get that women like a little cat fighting, but very little. They are generally kind, and giving, and enjoy seeing women having a good time together. Please be the bigger person and repair your friendship with Teresa. She loves you. It's apparent to me. Forgive. You're a very sweet person and don't deserve the venom you gotten over this situation.

I personally think Teresa got a bad deal on the Kim D beauty salon deal. But on the flip side I think Teresa is blind to what is going on in her own life. I don't think Joe loves her and he is the biggest jerk ever. I think Teresa is on her way to a nervous breakdown, she can't keep going like she is. She will crack. I will say Jacqueline that I support you and know what it feels to lose and be disappointed with your best friend. This has recently happened to me. I thought I was going to lose my mind. But as the months go on, I see her and realize I really don't want to be her friend anymore. So it does get better, honest, it does. Take care of you and your family and know their are friends out here.

Jacqueline, you are not always the innocent victim.  You DID ambush Teresa with Caroline, and you cant say she accidently showed up that night.  You act like your sleeping instead of helping your friend that night, then you instantly attack her over the Melissa thing.  Thew viewers are getting sick of you and Caroline's boo hoo poor me crap.

Jacqueline, you and your mob mentality gang should take an extended break from television. Some drama is good. Gets people to watch, but we also like seeing issues being worked out and resolved. Years of Teresa bashing, and still speaking with so much hatred after a year has passed is not healthy for any of you women. I won't call any of you ladies, because you are not. Far from it. I used to like you, but now you've become just as disgusting as Caroline. Some friend you turned out to be. You jump to conclusions and go with the mob mentality every time. Sad. Time for you to leave the show, and take your mob-mentality-sisters-in-hatred-of-Teresa with you.

Ladies this is reality tv no one is really on trial.Any way ! i've had situations where someone has said something about a friend and i didn't tell her. how i felt was i addressed the issue for her, why bother her with filthy rumors. I think that teresa addressed it well. I don't know you nor do i want to hear what you have to say. I believe that she wasn't involved, she has no other friends on the show why mess it up with the only one that will talk with her.

Dear Jacqueline,

 

It’s  heartbreaking to see all the criticism you’re receiving in your blog from Teresa’s fans.  You’ve shown yourself to be one who always wants to think the best of someone. You obviously have a huge heart and have given Teresa the benefit of the doubt more times than I can count.  I’ve read many of the comments that Teresa’s fans have made and it’s difficult for me to comprehend how they can so misperceive Teresa;s behavior.  And that they blame you?  The one housewife who has a heart of gold, who wouldn’t hurt a fly, and who obviously wears her heart on her sleeve!  I pray that you not let their offensive comments get to you.  You are a beauteous soul both inside and out and deserve only the best.  May God bless you.

 

P.S. One other thing: please know that I always look forward to your insightful blogs. I’m disappointed that you’ve chosen to not write a blog this week, but after seeing all the criticism you’re receiving from Teresa’s fans, I can well understand your wanting to stay away from all of the gratuitous negativity.

 @catperry2011  FYI,there would be no photos cause in clubs with strippers don't allow that! Come on people! Does anyone realize how Melissa played so stupid in the bathroom saying "I don't  remember" over and over until finally she realized the truth was about to come out and then suddenly 1 minute later "OH YA! I bartender for him" How on earth did you not remember 1 minute ago but suddenly you do? Oh here is why,cause she already admited she knew him. She couldn't play dumb at the table cause he would have outed her in front of everyone. If finally clicked that she needed to confuse some how,how she knew him.

 

Either way,the bigger picture is. Teresa went to the bathroom AWAY from everyone else to speak to her Sister inlaw in Private! Let her know "This shady guy,is trying to say these things. What do you know?,I'm giving you a heads up." She even wanted to go confront. SHE NEVER SAID MELISSA WAS A STRIPPER! She ASKED Melissa why the guy was saying that and if it was true. AWAY from everyone else! It was a Private sister inlaw to sister inlaw talk! If she wanted to set Melissa up,why not just bring it up at the table or better yet,why warn Melissa in the bathroom about the guy and what he was trying to spread? 

 

Is everyone forgetting that Teresa did try to Warn Melissa once the guy showed up at the Table? COME ON HERE! Who was the one that threw everything out in the open,where everyone can hear? Jacqueline! Why? Cause she wanted to see a fight and let it just get out of hand and make teresa look bad.

You know that for a fact? How? The viewers would like to know. Why did everyone latch on to what Jacqueline said - watch the show carefully. It was all instigated by Jacqueline and she watched it all play out.

 

Besides - WHO CARES if she danced/stripped?!  Hey, if I had bodies like Teresa and Melissa - I would consider doing it! Who Cares?! It's a living.

Nene did and she's not hiding it. I think she's very proud of it.

I so agree with you!!  Jacqeline could have stopped the whole thing from the start instead she sat back, got her little tweets and said nothing.  She wanted to nail Teresa and had her nasty trouble making sister-in-law and neice to back her up.  I believe there was a set up but I think those three did it.  Kim D started the whole Melissa thing to get her party noticed, but Jacqeline, Caroline and that nasty daughter of hers were the ones who took it to a new level.  They need someone to step on to make there sad little lives interesting.  Melissa and Kathy were brought on the show to stir the pot and they have now get rid of them.  My friends and I have a HWONJ ladies night at each others homes, but we have all decided that Melissa is just way to much of a slimer, and Caroline rules is a joke!  She runs everybody and is as mean as a snake.  Its no fun watching when you know Caroline is going to keep attacking every time she gets air time.  If tghose two stay we're moving on.

Melissa is a character. She automatically went for Teresa's throat. Personally, I'm thinking this is to get more attention for her "singing" career. You KNOW her hubby is paying out the big bucks to spread the music. I have NEVER heard the song(s) on the radio. Have any of you?

 

It is all for show. Teresa's brother is an idiot.

 @MyVox  I don't think so, because it looks pretty obvious Jacqueline, Teresa, and very possibly Melissa and wouldn't doubt Kathy was in it because they want Teresa destroyed for whatever their crazy reason is.

The whole thing is ridiculous because all they do is pound Teresa over and over and I can't imagine anyone putting up with that garbage. I sure wouldn't.

 @MyVox

 I think Kim D planned it, and after seeing the party in the Brownstone, maybe Joe, Teresa's husband might have helped plan it.  Teresa was used as a scapegoat by them.  Rather than asking what is going on, though, she parties with all of them.

 @MyVox UUMM.... look who's selling themselves in the tabloids now .Melissa in..US Weekly... And the WHOLE article is Melissa's own words. The ones that Jac and Caroline are so upset about never contained quotes about any family. All the quotes were taken directly from the show or from  their own blogs.

 @Chocolisa  I think the look on Teresa's face sometimes is confusion because the people around her were asking her questions they knew she would not talk about. "jail" "money problems" That is why she told Jac once that she would give her her lawyers number.

@Me2unKy How do you figure that T has been a good friend to Jaq? She sets boundaries, only cared to talk about what she wanted, never invested her concerns in any problem that Jaq was having, said in the RV that what goes on in Jaq's world, T does not care. I would have told T then that I was finished trying to be her friend, it would be more work having a friendship with T than keeping a marriage on a good sound foundation. Sure T will screech like the wild animal that she is, she will blame anyone, except, Kim D ( the low life snake), who did help to set up Melissa.

No, it is called being nosey and out of line.

 

How quickly Jacqueline blew off Teresa when Teresa basially told her to mind her own business - yet politely.

If you put yourself in Teresa's shoes - how long would it take YOU to retaliate? Think about it.

I'm surprised Teresa never let off one. On the other hand, Jacqueline has. Jacqueline states at the beginning of each and every show - shes a POKER PLAYER.

She's telling the tv audience - she's a gamer.

 @anniebal i agree with the last  two comments.. Jacqueline sits there and knows what s going on and even admits that in the reunion, but wont "give up" the name of who she was texting .. SHE could have warned Melissa and she didnt. It was way too much easier to lay it all on Teresa and she didnt know what was going on. People wake  up... Between Caroline and Jacqueline, i truly believe that they were the real ones alone with Kim who set up Melissa.. I like Melissa but she plays way too innocent in every single situation, like shes some kind of saint.. SHE is the one who started this whole thing... she has half facts, but blabs untruths to her hubby and wants everyone to feel bad for her all the time.. Teresa has her faults, but she didnt do this and millions and millions of people are threatening to stop watching rhonj if they continue to be on the show... cant blame them... Jacqueline doesnt deserve a nice man like Chris, and she should stay out of family matters , along with Caroline and her big mouth daughter!!.. this isnt their issue.. its Teresa and Joe and Joe and Melissa... that s it... Melissa, wuit acting so innocent... if you didnt put yourself in a situation that was less than respectable, then you wouldnt worry about what people think... lol.. I wonder who Caroline will chastize next season? They, especially Joe Gorga will be begging for Teresa;s forgiveness, when the real truth about Melissa comes out one day....

 @Turtlemom  @Me2unKy And when she said she didn't care she actually meant she doesn't judge. I am sure she knew about Jac's son being autistic and about the financial problems but she never said anything on camera. Every chance Jac and Caroline got they were discussing T's problems.
