I love Greg, so I was so happy to be there to celebrate his birthday with him. @greggybennet is hysterical to follow on Twitter. If you aren't following him yet, you should. Also follow @albiemanzo, @chrismanzo, and @laurenmanzo. They have really interesting banter between them.
Lindsey seemed fearless meeting the family. Lauren and Caroline both approve of her, thank goodness. She fits right in. Lindsey is such a beautiful person inside and out. She's definitely a keeper. She still joins us over at my house for family dinners every weekend. Although business is first priority for Albie at this point in his life, I would like to believe that once he feels settled in all other areas of his life while becoming the man he wants to be, he will balance and maintain love in his life and they can grow together from there. I hope that Lindsey will be a lasting love for Albie, but as you know, timing is everything.
I read something about no dairy or gluten this may help your son ...check it out can't hurt best of luck to you and your family....hope this works
What a difference a year makes. Last year you were a fan favorite, and this year you have successfully run your image into the ground. Best of Luck Jac's, you need it along with some "physical therapy."
I think you're a very sincere & honest friend. Theresa doesn't deserve to have you as a friend because she doesn't have the same qualities as you. Your Father said it all when you had your short conversation w/him about "T". It's a one-sided friendship. I hope you don't waste your time reading the posts of the negative people that are "t" fans, concerning you -- life is too short for that nonsense! Move on to different friends that you can trust.
HOW ABOUT YOU PUT THAT DRINK DOWN AND WRITE A BLOG. YOU ALWAYS WAIT TO READ TERESA'S BLOG THAN WRITE YOURS. GROW UP!!!
Jaqueline,youre too sensitive,but i understand,you were a very good friend to teresa,and if you felt you were not getting the same back in return it was the best move to make,because it will only bring you down,there are other people you can make good deceent long lasting frienships with,as friends are important but it is a two way street. and dont blame yourself about how Ashley is, i wish she could see how lucky she is to have such a great start in life to pny destroy it,,what some people would give to have that , when shes older she will realise this but try and give her a little more time as she is still young : ) all the best from a viewer down under....
Jac, why are you so angry? It can't be about the tabloids. It can't be about the 1 tweet to Danielle, that would make you look like a 3rd grader. It can't be about the snake Melissa or her disrepectul brother the wanna be prono star. The last show was very telling, your family must need help with Blk Water, and why is Teresa not there with her twitter following? Teresa did'nt offer to help did she? Maybe she thought that with Caroline's entire family and your husband that you had it all covered or did she get the memo early from Dina or Danielle maybe that the smoking gun/plot had her name on it this season and simply said no? Bravo has failed this season, it did'nt work and to think that you were one of my favs from all the housewives, now you make no sense at all. Please explain your hate towards Teresa. Thanks in advance.
I am always wondering why you do not get that Theresa is very ignorant, like she does not mean half of what she says or does, she just does not communicate well. I truly believe that half of the issues you all have with ehr is that she is not an articulate person, she cannot read well, speak well or spell well or even pronounce things correctly. I really htink she is thinking that you were her best freind and you should know that by knowing her, that she would not write an article like that in any paper. I think the articles are written for dramatic effect, to sell magazines and just like celebreties things are written and inferred that are simply not true.
But instead of saying it like that to you, she found fault with you for not knowing that yourself, and expecting her to say it to you or tell you that it was not true and that she had nothing whatsoever to do with being written. I think it is in the lack of language skills Theresa has, is exactly where the issues begin and end.
Again her writing her cookbook and making reference to Caroline's cooking, comparing it to "Olive Garden" was most likely funny to Theresa, and knowing how flighty she is and air headed (you can tell when she bats her eyelashes) she is always confused, doesn't understand things like a normal person that she thought it was a "joke" and really did not set out to hurt the Manzo family, but thought in her own feeble mind that she meant it as a joke "ha, ha, funny" when in fact it is not funny. I do not think Theresa has the capability or the ability to process most information and so therefore she is quite ignorant in many ways,but not malicious or evil spirited, she is more like a little child that can barely have a conversation.,
People have varying degrees of what they think is funny, some people miss the boat and don't get that what they say is not funny to others, Theresa is one of those people. She is like on another planet when she speaks to anyone, not just you guys, so why do you all not see this as maybe a socially inept person, a socially struggling person without basic communication skills, I don't think it is nice to say but an ignoramous, a simple minded person.
Theresa is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and if you have been such close friends, I would think you would know this by now, like the rest of national tv land does.
Just listen to the way her husband speaks to her, does he sound educated in any way or on any level? You are not to blame you for the problems, but Caroline sure does have a serious committment, agenda for taking Theresa down for the count. Caroline has a vendetta out for her and it is a very ugly side of Caroline to continue this and continuing to bring as many people on her side as possible to the degree of trying to feed informaiton to theresa's famly members that may not be true or is here say, not, most of the time, factual, in an attempt to gain team members. Which only worsens the issues and compounds them and really starts more fires on top of the already dysfunctional mess that is going on in any given moment.
I think if you asked her to slowly tell you exaclty what she meant when she had the isue with you asking her about the magazines, she might be able to explain it with more words, her lack of verbal commnuication and lack of vocabulary is what is causing all of this trouble. Well, best of luck I hope it all works out...
You're proud of and wish success for the daughter of your former friend. Yet you have relentlessly tried to publicly disparage her mother's character, her parent's marriage, basically create as much damage as possible. A decent mature person, especially someone with her own children, would have enough of a conscience to recognize the harm you are actually contributing to that child's world and exercise restraint in your public comments, No matter what you feel, regardless of the past arguments in the heat of the moment, and commentaries that were filmed last year, you have had enough time to reflect, and are in complete control of what you've said since then. For that alone, shame on you.
Jacqueline lost respect for the way Teresa treated her family, thought she was was so angry that she couldn't sincerely want to reconcile with her brother despite claiming to love him, said she tried to dissuade her from friendships with Melissa and Kathy by saying negative things about them, wanted to ruin her brother's marriage, tried to expose Melissa. That she was a grudge holder who should just get over it already. So, here's Jacqueline in these episodes distancing herself, judging her to be the worst type of person, alternately hurt, angry,making accusations about her marriage YET also saying she loves Teresa, maybe there's still a chance...basically having mixed emotions. Since filming ended, she's been on an extended mission to convince the public of everything that's horrible about Teresa and expose her marriage as a sham. So, I guess when SHE's angry and hurt and feels betrayed (as Teresa felt) she feels justified to behave in a manner she finds so dispicable, because it was only a friend of 15 years, not a relative? If you have high standards for behavior and character, you will adhere to them yourself, not just expect them of others.
I like Jacqueline and I think she is a sweetheart most of the time . But lets be real here. Its not her business about Teresa's personal life. what's she is building on her property etc But Most of all how she makes her money and with her bankruptcy. That is just plan wrong and she should of minded her own business! I would never ask any of my friends about their finances and likewise. If Teresa wanted her to know such things she would of told her. The tabloids print crap all day long and like I said before that's how they get people to buy it. The women treat Teresa like garbage and if I were her I would tell them to go to hell. She is always defending herself to these women who bully her when ever they get the chance.. You would think that they would have something better to do with their spare time that look for ways to be little Teresa. So don't feel bad and do your crying act Jacqueline. Most of all dont turn just like the other women on the show. your better than that. I think a apology would be in order !
Did you ever think that maybe Lindsey wanted to check out the family to see if they met her expectations? The fact that you even post that she was fearless? WTH if I were that uncomfortable meeting someones family it wouldn't be worth it.
Stop crying over Teresa she not worth your teaes. she never was your friend. she is two face.Your better than her. Come on girl let it go.
I understand that you are upset with Teresa and do not want to be friends with her. I get that. Here is what I don't understand: When will you, Caroline, Melissa and Kathy be happy? Will you be happy when Teresa and her children are homeless? In a food shelter? On Welfare? Divorced? Addicted to Xanax? I just don't get it. What is the end result you are looking for? Do you want to be pushed so far that she tries to kill herself? Is that what you all are really after? How do you think you would feel if you read in a tabloid that Teresa Giudice just got sent to a hospital for an overdose. You can't roll your eyes at this. People have done far worse to themselves with far less pressure on them. It is very clear that all for of you have come together to destroy her but I don't really think that you are prepared emotionally if what you think you want to happen to Teresa really does happen.
So now your husband has said it from his own mouth that he filed for bankruptcy too....which you were involved with. Should Teresa come on over now and demand to know how you are feeling and ask how you were able to afford this and that? Also, Teresa pulled out of her bankruptcy and is paying back creditors....your husband did not.
WOW, after the disagreement between you and Teresa, you REALLY hit below the belt. I cannot fathom how you expected Teresa to tell you stuff that was not true. You kept egging her on. YOU SET HER UP. You bring up Teresa's finances on television but yet Teresa NEVER spoke on national television about the many issues you and your family deal with. Yet, you come on camera Joe is or was with another woman. YOU ARE NOT INNOCENT. You lost ALOT of fans. And you ARE under the influence of The Manzos. I am sure if Caroline did not have a problem with Danielle, you and her would still be friends. I now feel bad for Danielle. You are a real piece of work Jacqueline. i hope when everyone realizes how Melissa played you and your entire family for a fool, they are all going to laugh at you. I still don't know if you are jealous or a fame seeker. You are not the innocent, sweet, and caring person the viewers thought you were. And you claim to see Teresa for who she is. And you would want to have a relationship/mend your friendship with Teresa? After that comment about Joe running around with another woman, how can you even think Teresa would speak to you.I cannot wait for the day you realize you RUINED your 15 year friendship. My gosh, marriages do not last as long as your friendship did. So many people cherish their friendships bc as women, it gets harder to have a good female friendship and you really ruined it with Teresa.
I think that there is room for many business ventures you have the water, Caroline the sauce, Kathy the pastries and Melissa the performing. Now that it may have been upsetting that Teresa wrote the cookbook based on her mom's recipes, that she thought of a wine and that she went on The Apprentice it is understandable because she was the first to break away from the chain and has proven that she is capable of providing for her family. It is who you talk too and how you market it.....
Yes, as a friend she could have told you everything that was going on instead of you reading it on the magazines but it does not make her a dishonest person. Because she never said anything to you to begin with. Why, did she have to sit with you and give you an explanation of what was said on the magazines? She was too good if she sat through that to then have Caroline show up, it seemed like an ambush. At the end of the day you have all achieved what you set out the BLK water is promoting and in stores, the van scene was funny sort of like a SNL skit. Caroline's sauce or the Brownstone sauce may be in stores already, Kathy's pastries, Melissa's song, Teresa's books and wine. To show you that there is room for all.
Melissa/Joe and Kathy/Rich came on the show with or without Teresa's knowledge. She is upset at that because I would not want my dirty laundry to be aired out by no one else than my self and if they delivered what they promised then what would happen if Teresa leaves? Let's see what the Napa Valley trip holds but if I were Teresa I would not have gone at all,
omg!!! how could you have not told everyone that your husbands business had gone bankrupt?????? omg how could you have not gotten on camera and told the entire world about your financial problems????? omg how could you have just put on the brave face, kept smiling and acted like nothing was wrong??????? omg how could you afford a trip to Napa and a blk travel bus and the expensive clothes, shoes and accessories you wear??? omg omg omg!!!!!
Now how stupid did that just sound Jac? That's how ridiculous you sound when talking about Teresa. I guess it's ok for you to not talk on camera about your financial situation and to put a smile on your face and just keep going but it's NOT ok for Teresa??? Teresa said it best this week when she said she puts a smile on her face and acts as though nothing is wrong so her kids won't see what she's going through. You're a hypocrite!!
As for your comment in your blog about how you have always tried your best to get Teresa and her brother Joe to make up with each other and you've always wanted the best for the two of them and Kathy that's a crock!! All you've done from the beginning is go to Melissa and Kathy everytime you've had a conversation with Teresa and told them eveything she's said to you (in confidence) and I call that stirring the pot. Be it you told them yourself or you told Caroline knowing she'd go right to them and tell them every word, you still did it and now you're trying to make out what an angel you are.
Take care of your own business first instead of everyone elses because by the looks of it you need to be focusing on your own family, your own (or husbands) bankruptcy and your own spending habits instead of anyone elses.
And by the way........in the episode where you ambushed Teresa at your house you were asking her the question, "so after you file bankruptcy then everything you make after that you get to keep, right?" You should have known the answer to that because of your own bankruptcy problems. Oh wait, that's right, your answer will be that Chris didn't tell you anything about it. You'll want us all to believe that but you don't want people to believe that Teresa knew nothing about her husband Joe's problems when they first came up.
Can you saaaayyyyyy........HYPOCRITE!!!
I admire your character and you are a wonderful friend. Keep your head up! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Well this may be controversial but I like Teresa and Jacqueline. Well not exactly the Jacqueline I have been seeing lately, but I think she has her back against the wall and is trying desperately to defend herself against the "haters" and I can't say I wouldn't do the same. Bottom line...fame has ruined your friendship girls. If neither of you were on this show, there would be no cookbooks, cosmetic lines, or tabloids. You would still be hanging out, laughing, shopping, having playmates with your kids, etc. Having said that, obviously you are both on the show and I think Teresa is right in this conflict. Jac, if my friend's brother and sister-in-law came on this show the way Melissa and Joe did I would never had become friends with them. Cordial, yes, but friends...NO WAY! Just watch the Christening show and you will see that Melissa and Joe came on the show to start a fight with Teresa and her husband. Then they play the victims and and play nice with you and Caroline. You were Teresa's good friend for years and should understood the pain she was experiencing. How would you feel if Caroline and Al started a fight with you and Chris on the show and then made it out as if it were all your fault? I understand you tired very hard to have Teresa make peace with her brother because that is what Teresa really wants....but don't you understand the depth of the hurt and betrayal Teresa is feeling? Teresa can not find peace with her brother until her brother is honest about the reason he and his wife came on the show. He needs to fess up how he and Melissa wanted to be on the show soooo bad that his wife contacted Daniele and contacted producers for years. He also needs to admit that they told Bravo they would cause a fight with Teresa to get ratings. Then and only then can they make amends and give forgiveness. Caroline is the type of person that is black and white. You did me wrong. I don't forgive you. I hate you! You are not that kind of person. You want to understand, forgive, and move on. But you got caught up in Caroline's hate and Melissa and Joe's bull**** and now you can't get out of it. And to make matters worse, people you don't even know are bashing you on twitter, Facebook, and websites. So you fight back and defend yourself. I get that. But Jac, I know you are a good person and I know you love Teresa. I also know Teresa loves you.You did have a "real" friendship and fame has ruined it. F*** everyone and be true to yourself. Call your friend and talk, really talk ....without cameras. Friends are precious and should not be thrown away.
YOU should have hit the spell check!LOL
@Totellyouthetruth As a descended of an Italian immigrant I take offense to you calling Teresa basically dumb because she fumbles with words like many people do when English is their second language. Teresa had stated early on her parents spoke only Italian to her in their home so that Italian is her first language English her second. Any immigrant from any country fumbles words and meanings that does not equate to being dumb. Also I feel Teresa is more of a Lucille Ball type of character and it takes some intelligence to pull off playing dumb.
Ummm, Tersa may not articulate like you'd like her too, but did you ever notice she never had that problem until this year as she found out in an AMBUSH that her best friend was teaming up with her god awful sister in law to ruin her because they are all so jealous they can't SEE straight? I'd stutter on camera too if I suddenly saw the big picture. She hasn't for 3 years prior and that's painfully obvious. I absolutely LOVE Teresa and Joe's banter- they have endured a horriic public bankrupcy, and they swallowed their pride and worked their tail ends off- as opposed to the other women whose "game plan" was to take Teresa down so it would make room for their success. You may call Teresa dumb, but the fact of the matter is she's got an empire going, and it's growing daily. She's succeeding where the other's failed and Jaq's problem has nothing to do with Teresa's speech pattern, it has to do with Teresa's sucess and her manic, greed driven jealousy. Joe Guidice is charming, endearing, and harmless. The way he went off on Teresa's family was completely called for and "reality" as opposed to the other camp's set-up scenes they use us for, to try and obliterate Teresa. The misery these people have put her through has driven him mad because of HOW MUCH he loves her. I think the way The Guidice's have come out of this vindictive attack has been nothing short of miraculous, and I adore watching them.
The probelm is that while fiming, Jacqueline, Caroline & gang talk about "The Manzos" like it's an exclusive club we all want in on:-Albie saying "that you have to get through CAROLINE IS the biggest misconception of The MANZOS, it's LAUREN you actually have to get through",,and "we're think as thieves, NO ONE comes between us." While that may have worked for a couple of years, we NOW know who Caroline, Jacqueline and that gang are, and the fact that they think "The Manzos" are a group we all want in is ridiculous. Because of their merciless attack on Teresa and her little girls who obviously would be affected, out of jealousy and mind numbing greed, and them saying "the one you have to GET through to be a Manzo" is funny,,,,no one wants to get "IN" with the Manzos or even watch them. The viewers aren't writing because we're angry, we're DONE. It's obvious the audience is fed up, and is speaking excrutiatingly loud to Bravo that we stand behind Tresa and her immediate family, NOT The Manzos, Lauritas, and Gorgas. Come on!
@delyn12 Teresa does not have to tell someone her private business Jacqueline should be a friend not noisy . Teresa is no more two face that Caroline or Jacqueline
@TVLover11364Oh PLEASE! Theresa loves herself WAY too much to "out herself". She could learn from Jacqueline what it means to be a friend. Theresa brings it all on herself. I mean, who HASN'T Theresa talked horribly about? She's pathetic! You did the right thing, Jacqueline. She was never a good friend...not to anybody. I don't think she's capable of it. Besides, Jacqueline was not doing anything mean to her. She just wanted her to be honest with her. Theresa isn't capable of honesty.
@TVLover11364 I feel Jacqueline is unhappy with her life it has changed and her finances are worse than Teresa and she has anger towards her I don't think she knows why she and Caroline are angry. Friends don't have to tell friends about there private life it is not your business Jacqueline I don't think you know how to be a friend
Amen TVLOVER......Its like they live Teresa.
All they do is blame Teresa and Bash teresa. It never ends and not one of them has given a legit reason why they are upset at her... especially Jaq and Caroline. BUT there are a lot of rumors about why Dina is mad at caroline. As we all know Dina has her own show..and she was going to put together her brother jaimes wedding an have it on HER show.. rumor has it that Caroline went behind her and had it filmed for Bravo...if you notice jaime even says he threw the wedding together very quickly,.also Dina has said numerous times that the feud between her and caroline has NOTHING to do with Teresa and that Caroline is not being honest. Back to the wedding, Caroline and Dina have TEN other siblings, the only two to show up to Jaime's wedding we Caroline and Chris. Also, remember that Dina's husband owns half of the Brownstone with Albert, his brother who is Carolines husband.. some say Dina is tired of the Manzo boys marketing and selling Brownstone sauce and promoting out of the Brownstone..I think the wedding makes more sense tho.
You missed the whole point, Jacqueline never said any thing about bankruptcy in the media, the media will find that out. Teresa is going around talking about people and not taking any blame. Jacqueline had her back aways. And if you are someone friend you are friend and talk about certain issue before they hit the newsstand or the media. And talking to Danielle is a low blow what kind of friend is that
@chitownelisa OMG!!! You hit THE NAIL ON THE HEAD!!! Hope Jacqueline is PAYING ATTENTION!!! Doubt it....but she should be!
What you are so wrong about Jacqueline how is she being a hypocrite when Teresa is selling her stories to magazines, and the issue is not about filing bankruptcy Jac and Caroline have been there for her in the past.
@chitownelisa YOU SUMMED IT UP JUST RIGHT. SHE'S A HYPOCRITE!! SHE HOLDS TERESA UP TO A DIFFERENT STANDARD BECAUSE SHE IS SO JEALOUS OF HER SUCCESS THAT SHE CAN'T SEE STRAIGHT.
@chitownelisaThat first paragraph cracked me up! So funny!
@Annie003 Jac is much worse now... !!!
If your family is experiencing hard times, why don't you stop obsessing about the Giudice's, stop the twitter rants, put down the wine and get a job?
@kmkhill7 Two hear Caroline Teresa has been causing problems between her family for years. It is sad but they say what goes around comes around
You know what I think you are right with your post. I think the truth is that Jaq is not this big stand up person she is trying to portray. She doesn't want to say hurtful things therefore lets things slide and then stews about them. If she could have said to Teresa what she said in her talking head interviews, things would be out in the open at least, then if the friendshiip broke up, then it was most likley meant to be. I think she received alot of pressure from family, and was easily swayed. I mean look at the Manzos, do you think she could remain friends with Teresa and still went to Sunday dinner's, not likley. She had to pick a side, and the right side, or face the wrath of Caroline. I would not doubt the fact that the message was and is, Teresa made a fool out of you, and your friendship. I would think she was embarresed, her pride was hurt and she lashed out, and she took it to far, to the point of no return. The really sad thing is her and Teresa were good together and did seem to have a special friendship and brought viewers lot's of laughs. Maybe it was more of a surface friendship, in the fact that Teresa might not be the type to share her deep personal things. I believe she is pretty old school, and may only share those things with her husband or family. I think certain people in your life, played you and twisted things to make Teresa look bad in your eyes. I also of course don"t know, but think Teresa would forgive you. Either way you have obsessed about this long enough, put it to rest, one way or another. I for one would love to see you get your best friend back, and you know what I would love even more...do it before the reunion and give all those ladies a surprise, perhaps then, you can give the viewer's an awakening about the truth of this takedown of Teresa, what really happened on the deck that night, and who put you up to it. (like we don't already know) remember the truth will set you free, in your case I believe until you come clean about everything, you will not get the peace you are looking for, and then people will finally quit seeing you as Caroline's puppet , ONCE ANF FOR ALL.
Ya know, I agree with much of what you said, and it was very "Reagonesque" how you cut right to the simple truth, but where you and I part views (respectfully) is, I think the way in which Jacqueline has attacked Teresa personally, attempting to hurt her financially and to set up on camera, the insinuation that she was misusing funds, is something I think Teresa can never forgive in her head or heart unless Jacqueline too speaks the truth like you stated Joe Gorga should. Meaning, I think Jacqueline would have to say "Teresa, you were such a success with what you put out there, and I'm in such a financial panic over BLK water, that I let Caroline who's in the EXACT SAME PANIC with Blkwater, sway me and I'm sorry I tried to finacially ruin you, so your success could be tolerated in my psychee"
Because make no mistake, the huge difference between these women and Teresa is, no matter everything they have maliciously done to Teresa, she has yet to fight back personally and sabotage them. They did it to Dina too, that's why she's not talking to them. If Jaq had her way, even through to YESTERDAY, Teresa's name would be ruined and her family in the gutter. Through to YESTERDAY. She and Caroline are not slowing down, so clearly, I don't think Jacqueline will ever fess up. So in saying that, I believe with good reason, Teresa has forever removed herself from this group of jealous, ruthless women. And what Jacquline tried to do,and is still doing, with or without Caroline's guidance was ruthless.
I didn't see a single episode where Teresa said horrible things about the others. What I did see was Teresa reacting to things the others had said about her. Are we watching the same show?
"Teresa could learn from Jacqueline what it means to be a friend." sorry, I had just had to write that again, LOL..Good lord.
@Annie003 True, but from what I have witnessed, Teresa will forgive...I mean if she can forgive her brother and SIL, she can forgive anyone.
@FanViewerNJ I agree, Teresa has not been malicious in her comments or actions while Jacqueline has. i guess fame and fortune aren't all they are cracked up to be. It causes jealousy and hatred. So sad to watch.
I love Melissa he song is kicking, Teresa has nothing she is two face. she is so jealous of Jacq, Melissa. Teresa want every one to look at her like she is the queen. WRONG WISH SHE WOULD LEAVE THE SHOW, WOULD BE BETTER WITH OUT HER.
Teresa is STILL after evrything Melissa did promoting her stupid songs...I gve her a lot of credit for that,.
