Jacqueline thinks Teresa just needs to respect Melissa and Joe's marriage so they can all move forward.

on May 15, 20120

Just know that she loves your husband and that she just wishes things were the way they were before his life with you. I know it's not fair that she takes out a lot of her anger on you when she feels most upset at her brother. I know that you didn’t do anything horribly wrong to start this battle, but you hold your own when you need to. From what I understand, Teresa just wants to be back up on the pedestal where she felt your husband put her before he put you there as his wife. She sees the bond you have and she may not have the same bond with her husband, so she may resent the life you two have. She used to have her brother to herself, but now she has to share his time with you, your children, and your extended family. When Joey was single, he looked up to his sister and her life, and she liked that. He spent all his extra time with her. Once he got new obligations and responsibilities that come from having a family of his own, he had to prioritize his time. I think she became a little envious of his new lifestyle and that is where the competition started. I think she began to feel like he didn't need her anymore. But he does. I think you wanted a relationship with her, but she made it very difficult for you to enjoy her company, because you could sense her animosity toward you so it was hard to warm up to her. You also already had your own sisters to turn to, so you had your own support aside from Teresa where she only had her brother and you. I know she has done and said some horrible things to you that are difficult to forgive. I know at times you reacted to those things and the tit for tat cycle continued.

If Teresa ever decides to SINCERELY attempt to try again (notice I used the word sincerely) then open up your heart and embrace her like a sister and include her in your life as one. It may be possible that Teresa will never be able to move past this and she will continue to be a toxic force in your life and a wedge in your marriage forcing you to walk away. I hope that is not the case. You'll know.

Teresa, it brings back some painful memories to see you and your brother hurting over each other. I hated seeing that. I honestly and sincerely just wanted to fix you both so that my friend could be happy again. The truth is, I saw and still see you both hurting. I know your pain comes from your brother gaining a wife you resented, his kids, and his extended family as well as them joining the show. Things change when we grow up and get married. You can't expect to have your brother with you every day like he was before he got married. It doesn't mean that he loves you any less than he ever did. I will tell you what I've said to you so many times before during our talks, when you asked me for advice. If you ever want a good relationship with your brother, you have to respect his wife and his relationship with her first.

I am shocked by some of these messages! As far as I am concerned Jacqueline, you handled the Gia situation very well! Teresa should be happy she has a friend that cares enough about her daughter to take time away from your own party to go try to comfort her when from what I saw Gia was being a touch over dramatic! If it was my child I would have thanked you! Teresa should have disciplined her for the way she spoke to you and Caroline. She obviously has not been taught it is wrong to speak to adults that way. I mean seriously viewers look at the behavior of Teresa's children. They can be pretty wild and I've never once seen them be disciplined. I have 4 children, if one of them ever spoke to an adult like Gia did they would absolutely be apologizing. As for the comments Teresa made about Ashley, there is a big difference. Jacqueline as done everything to try to help her daughter get it together, it may have taken some time but she didn't give up and that's what real mothers do!! Jacqueline you are also amazing with your sons, always doing puzzles or some kind of activities with them. They are so cute and behave very well while you are filming. Let's see what happens when Teresa has 4 teenage daughters running around. She's in for a wild ride!!!! I don't know how everyone can't see the differences in her this season. It's like she say's one thing one minute then the next she saying something completely different. Get it together Teresa, and stop saying everything that comes out of your mouth was just a joke. Why does it seem like Joe is never working and always drinking on the show??? What kind of man speaks to his wife that way??? He's bringing you down girl!!! Jacqueline keep up the good work, YOUR A GREAT MOM!!!!!!!!

Jacquiline, I like you I really do. That's why I hate to say how out of line you were with Gia. You and Caroline pushed her buttons after she was already JUSTIFIABLY upset. She was NOT being a sore loser, she lost UNFAIRLY. Ten year olds do not get the fun behind adults being silly in those situations. Caring adults would understand why Gia would be upset.

Gia may be a holy terror all day long and maybe that is why you didn't cut her a break. Maybe some of your frustration with Teresa's behavior reflected in your treatment of Gia. But in this instance, Gia was in the right and you and Caroline ganged up on her and bullied her. You pushed her buttons and she lashed out in disrespect that you deserved. She was defending herself. It will serve her well later in life. Yes, she should respect her elders, but only the ones that deserve it.

I haven't agreed with anything Teresa ever does, but this time, I'm right there with her. I would be livid if you treated my daughter that way. I wouldn't trust her to be alone with you or Caroline again.

Jacqueline, at the end of last season when I heard you might be leaving the show, I was bummed because I really thought you were the sweetest of all the NJ Housewives. Now, I hope you DO leave the show and take your sister in law with you! You two have become unbearable to watch. If you're both "so sick of the drama" then don't let the door hit ya in the *** on the way out!

DanaFrancesconi

The way you treated Gia was wrong. She is a 10 year old child that got upset because the opposing team cheated. That's a reasonable reaction. I hate cheaters and I am 39. Gia walked away from the situation that upset her and you should have just let her be and cool off. Instead, you and Caroline taunted her and lectured her. Both of you were pushing the buttons of a ten year old. Congratulations. You made her cry. Nice.

Jacqueline...in your first blog and in Caroline's first blog we heard a lot about Teresa "planting seeds" and we the viewers should be "reading between the lines. You two, my dear, are losing ground quickly with your horrendous behavior. Sorry...you two are not convincing anyone but yourselves that all of this upheaval was caused by Teresa. And oh by the way....Melissa and her crew aren't doing a very good job of it either. Kathy was ... for once since the beginning of her reign on this show....compassionate. I hope it stays that way. Joe and Melissa are hell bent on trying to convince us all that Teresa is 100% of the problem...when in fact they should take 50% of the blame. But you and Caroline....shame shame.

I have to disagree with some of the post. The field day was all in fun. So what, Joe picked up Melissa the last three legs - it was all in fun, he was off balance due to having a third body on top of his neck. So he missed tagging at the end of a race. Everyone, including the kids need to laugh. Don't take a function like that and turn it into something bad. Perhaps the book was a bad idea Jacqueline, but when you are a parent you want to help and sometimes your help might be the wrong way. No parent is perfect! I would have told Gia to get out of my house and go outside to have your little pouting episode. Jacqueline, maybe its time to get yourself out of the whole drama. I think Teresa needs to hit rock bottom. After all she allows her husband to talk to her the way he does, he is not a real man - just look at him. If my husband would ever tell me to shut up, next time he talked to me like that he would be thinking twice about it. Her husband is very disrespectful no matter what he is going through. And no women deserves to be talked down to like he does her. I think you all need to just cut Teresa off from your lives until she comes to understand she needs help and so do her children. Children will mimic what they see and hear. Good luck!

Jacqueline...I do believe you were trying to diffuse the situation with Gia, and you meant her no harm. It's Caroline who's the problem. She has obviously already turned on Teresa and had no right to take it out on Gia. Teresa up to this point has no clue yet that Caroline has been stewing. Teresa handled the situation well. Had she known Caroline's true feelings about her, things would have been a lot different. I feel bad for you.

Gia needs to be told that we feels her pain; and we validate any emotion she is having now. I'm almost speechless as to what I saw. Sure, collectively as a society, we should and do parent our close friends and family member's children sometimes; but that's when it's directed at an "in the moment" action, absent of a personality trait judgement. Basically, labeling an action a child has carried out right or wrong. This was a character assasination. Those two women really afforded us a pure, unadulterated snapshot into who they are. I am a child Psycholgist- Psychiatrist IRe, specializing in teenage behavior and that would have not been 'o.k.' for a teenager. Couple that with two women who spent the entire time prior to Teresa's arrival, attemting to spin "textGate" with her brother, to a whole new TeresaHate level, for the benefit of the viewers, while vasilating between the talking heads as to what a bad parent she is, well,,,, they had themselves a parte'. That entire bully session was Teresa's daughter being the target of displaced vendetta. Jaqueline suprised me the most. I'm still 'eyes-wide-open" shocked. Her sarcasm with Gia was cruel and explained volumes in regards to Ashley. For (me,) this actually validated many of Ashley's verbal concerns she has lamented and directed at her mother in the past. Caroline, as per usual, spoke with an amazing knack of ironic slams. She has a gift for verbalizing the exact natures of her wrongs on someone else. (crucified to the nation, a younger prettier version, willing to destroy a family). I won't comment on what she has taught her daughter, because Teresa did not bring that up but time will definately do that on its own. She demonished what Teresa is teaching her daughter while I think Teresa telling her to "listen to adults" after which she physically hugged her, was absolutely the appropriate action to take. She did not undermine the adults, which she will need in the future with (other) adults, and she gave her unconditional love which is vital to her emotional well-being after her "torture." Gia was not out of line. Joe did cheat, however her 'emotional run' did need to stop, but not at the hands of those women. Teresa should tell Gia they were wrongs in belittleing her and that next time, she should politely excuse herself and walk away from either of those women. However, I beg Teresa not to place Gia in that circumstnace again. Her Aunt Melissa, Uncle Joe and this circle of RHONJ women do not have her best interest at heart. I know Teresa is midst a reality show, but Uncle Joe and Aunt Melissa clearly have an agenda, and quite frankly, they do not care how it affects Teresa's immediate family because they are continuing their agenda. Kathy is the only adult who handled the situation properly. There may be hope for her yet! If we were frineds, I would definately advise Teresa not to show her Joe this episode. If that was my husband watching our daughter at the hands of those women, I don't know what he would do (lol) and he's not a reactor. Teresa was wonderful Sunday night, and I see why America has her as the "it" girl. The rest of the woman will continue this behavior becasue they will never be, and there in lies the rub--especially teresa's sister-in-law. I think it's time for her own show. Let them self destruct and eat their own. Happens everytime.

You should have read the adults a book on being poor sports.....why you read that book to someone who was not cheating? A child? Why didn't you tell the adults to PLAY FAIR!!! You were wrong, and considering how you don't like Teresa, stop making it seem like you were coming from love. You weren't.

My 15 year old son saw you on screen holding your baby and said "she's way too young to have a baby!" I told him "She's MY age, kiddo!" and he was shocked! Just wanted to pass that on to you....he thought you were 17 or 18. ;) Also, you were 1000% right in how you & Caroline handled Gia. She was completely out-of-line & disrespectful. 10 years old or not, she shoul;d've been taught to speak with respect to adults AND she should've been taught how to be a good sport. Love you Jaqueline, Caroline, Melissa & Kathy!!!

Wow, both of you should be ashamed of yourselves for taking out your frustrations and stupid petty problems with Theresa on her 10 year old daughter. If the situation were revered there would have been a public stoning. I am done with this show; none of you are worth the hour a week I have been giving up to watch this garbage..

Stay out of it! You should have just let Teresa handle it however she needs too. She's the parent. If that's the way you've treated Ashley then no surprise as to why she turned out the way she did. Using Sarcasm and a condescending tone does not calm a child nor does it teach anything.

Viewer Eve4ever

I watched the episode again and there was cheating going on. I have a grandson that does not like to lose at anything and always loses at most things. The other kids do not like to play with him due to his bad sportsmanship. He has never yelled at and adult or taken that tone with an adult. There is something else going on there and Tereasa need to address that issue and not worry so much about her brother and his family. None of the other children reacted in such a manner.

TO LINDASMOM This shouldn't have even made it s far as to Gia crying somewhere in the house if that was my child and she was running around screaming at the adults disrepectful and feeling she has earned the right to, NOT GOOD for her anyone else. Her butt would been in the car. Teresa saying ya I didn't want to be here ether but I'm a team player. Then Tereas don't come know one would have minded not dealing with you whinny daughter. Gia needs to learn respect for others and exspecially in someones house. If she continues to go through life believing she can yell and cry her way into adulthood and be a happy productive member of society she will have a rude awaking when no one around her wants to put with her tantrums. Teresa is not soing her daughter any favors, but not teacher her right from wrong.

Very sad to watch you and Caroline last night when Gia was upset. Instead of showing some compassion, you go and start reading a book written for a five year old and insulting her intelligence. I can see why Ashlee had problems in your house with that type of attitude toward children. I guess that you forgot that you were the adult in the conversation instead of the 10 year old. You seemed to take a cruel pleasure in fueling her to be more upset by your behavior, which was far from sincere, loving, caring and comforting to a child. Very cruel indeed, like someone's wicked stepmother in the movies.

You were so out of line with Gia. Take a lesson from Kathy. She was wonderful and loving with Gia. Used to be a fan of you and Caroline-but no more. Teresa is no where near perfect, but that is not an excuse for you and Caroline to be so cruel.

I think what really has to be said is Teresa is scared. We all react with this primal need to survive, when we feel we are in a corner. While Teresa irks me to no end, I feel compassion for her. She has buried herself in keeping up appearances, that now she may be fighting for her life. The other ladies have a right to share their frustrations. They see the mis-truths that Teresa needs to cultivate in order for everyone to see she is alright and good. The Gia issue last night was horrible. Gia is a young lady that should know that not matter what you respect adults. But, she clearly was emotional and did not need Jac's book reading. But Caroline I get it and I agree with you. Teresa is a fighter and while she is clearly speaks out of her face ( thank you mob wives) she should be strong enough to realize her husband is out of control. No one should speak those words and as much as teresa talks about how loyal she is about her family, why didn't she stick up for her family then???? WEAK! All the ladies are unique in their own right. Lauren, you are beautiful from the outside in. we love food, so what! As long as we can get up from the toilet by ourselves and we can still turn our man's head, what more do we need. The love of a good person, a family that enjoys each other and great home cooking.....ladies you are wealthier than you know.

I love you and everything you stand for. Not one of us is perfect.......we try the best we can, and you are doing a fabulous job at that! You seem to be a wonderful caring mother to ALL your children. Your decision to force Ashley to forge her own way is BRIILIANT!!! I have raised 3 children who are all grown and your decision is SPOT ON!! Don't question it. It's exactly what she needs at this point. You cannot handicap her with a codependent philosophy that will only make her depend on others even more. It was time. I had to do the same with my youngest and it has proven to be the hardest, and the smartest thing i ever did for her!! You're a good friend, trustworthy and kind. I'd kill for a friend like you! I hope you continue to be blessed and to find happiness and great joy in your life!!

I think you kept your cool when Gia told you to go outside and you reminded her it was your house and she should go out. Maybe you took it too far with reading her the book but she needed to hear it. That girl is out of control. When she was leaving you tried to do the right thing and give her a hug and you told her you loved her but she was too upset to forgive you at the moment. I hope things are better now.

Jacqueline, you are a sweet puff! However, honestly, you get TOOO INTO things. dont try to sugar coat things or fluff things up. The incident at the solistice? party...well that thing...you immediately thought it was about your involvment how you didnt or did say, etc.....HON....you are her friend. Find out what you need for YOUR peace of MIND and let things EVOLVE on their own. STOP LEAVING YOUR FOOTPRINTS all over things. It teresa's life. her doing, her mes s her craziness. Leave it alone. Listen, but dont get so entangled in the b.s. when things are directed to you, about you, then address it. In other words take a more NEUTRAL GROUND. you are or have gotten stomped in the past Staub...now Teresa.

I think it's unfair to always say that a husband or wife should prioritize their spouse and siblings, a brother should still put his mom, his sister and his wife all on a pedestal why does he have to choose?? I think that's part of the big problem, the Wife feels she should be the only one put on a pedestal and that hurts moms and sisters who have always been their for their brother. Joe needs to find a happy medium instead going to one extreme to the other like calling his sister names or busting Teresa out about the "gold digging" comment, he should have sat down with his wife and approached it differently just as Teresa should have. You admit that you had an alcohol addiction (and i think its great that you have won that battle) but do you think maybe that could be part of the reason that Dina didnt like you? I did not agree with how you handled Gia, it's not your place to tell Gia how to act just like Teresa did not tell your daughter how to act and your daughter is old enough to know right from wrong Gia is only 10.

Jaqueline, last night was such an eye opener. When you first told Gia who's TEN, "then you leave my house little girl" in righteous indignation because she was feeling bad because they lost and because she's again, she's TEN, Gia then didn't feel emotionally safe. I wouldn't have. Ya know, she has watched you women tear her mother apart for a YEAR. trying to smear her whenever you can, she's the one who has picked up the tab for all of your jealousy. Joey did cheat, which is not a reason for her to be disrespectful, but I believe even you can see then how now, a compeition against you woman who have made her mother's life hell, would make her feelings raw.You compared her to her mother throughout last night's talking heads with malice and disdain. YOU Jaqueline read that book to her with sarcasm and a condescending tone that made me feel just nauseus. You read it real slow and you were MOCKING a ten year old "BAD- losers- aren't -happy- unless -etc" IT WAS CRUEL and petty! I am really not ba JAQ fan to put it MILDLY. Yup, children to learn what they live, Gia was honest and cut through the bull last night like a champ.

YOu know what is pretty ironic? I have heard teresa bad mouth her relatives in addressing an issues. I have not heard her bad mouth you at all, and in regards to Caroline, she made a joke off of a joke they both were involved in on rachel ray and as well when she starts to question why Caroline is treating her so poorly. You see how confused she is at the change in her friends? I do. What I am still trying to figure out is where all your anger comes from in regards to teresa. You see it finally has hit me, there MUST be something else besides Melissa and Joe Gorga that could make you suddenly and yes it is sudden, to detest your very good friend. I think Teresa saw you as her very good friend, she still doesn't talk about you, funny huh. So it makes you look more closely at what she has to say about her family members. Of couse we all know what she is saying is truth there, their very presence on the show put who they are right out there to begin with. So I have concluded it is something else. I think it is whatever went down with Dina and I think it is Caroline's influence over her issue with Teresa which is likely because a) the dina issue and b) the cookbook issue, oh and I dont mean Teresa's comments in it, I mean her success in selling cookbooks while Caroline couldn't pull it off. Either way, A persons character speaks the biggest volumes. All I have seen Teresa do is be who she is. She has struggled her way through a season not realizing her friends where anything but. She knew from the beginning what her family was doing on there and with that was entitled to every word out of her mouth and then some. As for your field day. Joey Gorga says in the gym he should reach out to Teresa yet then on the way to field day shows a text and professes he did that the day after the incident,..can you say caught in a lie?! Not that you really care because you have been in on setting up Teresa from day one. Also Joe Gorga decided to have a chat with Gia before the events upsetting her. As usual they set the pace. What you and Caroline did, appalling.

You were way out of line with Gia. If that was my child, we would have a huge problem. When she got as upset as she did you should have stopped. I have more respect for Theresa now for how she reacted. Caroline was a bully as always but I was shocked at your behavior. You need to apologize to Gia.

Jaqueline, I wanted to jump through the screen and just tell you what I think. Teresa is right. When you read that book to Gia in your condescending tone and Carolines was saying "Gia, you don't need to always have all the attention" I wanted to handle both of you meself like you were Gia. You READ THAT book with sarcasm and a condescending drip that was just cruel. That authoratative tone, dripping in sarcasm was assinine and just cruel to a child. You ARE like Ashley said, "in high school." That is exactly what Ashley meant when she said her home was "toxic. If I was Gia, I would have felt picked on and bullied. NOW you women are doing it to her child. And to the viewers who couldn't believe The Bravo Poll? Please, normal people don't stay up and vote on the bravo poll, let alone watch it. Whoever is in that chair wins the polls, my god Danielle won her poll. Caroline and you have drug her Mommy thorugh the mud to the nation with her own aunt leading the witch hunt, and you have her trapped in a room without her Mom? Rrrr. And Caroline tells her "she just needs attention all the time" like her Mommy, which WAS was the innuendo in that scene, and what you both said in the talking heads-comparing Gia to her Mommy. That Gia young lady is smarter than all of you, and ps, Joe Gorga did cheat and then her aunt Melissa gave her a raspberry. No, this does no allow a chiuld to be dosrespectful but Teresa was handling it fine. Gia knows what you have done to her mother- "gang bullying to the nation". I can still hear how you read that book,slowly, one line at a time with sarcasm and a condescending tone was horrid, mean and vile.

It's so much easier to blame Jacqueline: It's Teresa if she isn't attacking someone to make herself look like the "victium" then she isn't happy. She is on every cover of every magazine - Teresa is putting her story out there, not Jacqueline, Caroline, Kathy, Melissa or Joe. Jacqueline keep being you .

What the heck was wrong with you on the show last night? You kept reading that stupid book even after Gia told you to leave her alone. I don't think that was right. You and Caroline should have left Gia alone whether you thought she was right or wrong. She's not your kid.

Jacqueline, You more patience than anyone. Teresa is what she is and is not going to change. She thinks she's a "Star" and should have all the advantages that comes with that! I noticed all through Aprentice that she kept under the radar and then when it came down to the nitty gritty Teresa HAD to go. On the puppet challenge she overdressed the puppet and when Mr. Henson's son told them the NUMBER 1 RULE WAS "PUPPETS NEVER SAY NO!" First words out of her mouth was "You're not Jimmy!" Then when they ask her to practive with a nursery rhyme, she didn't know one! She didn't own up to her mistakes then and she just never will. Maybe she's so insecure because I don't think Joe is going to stick around that much longer. When she said she wanted to go to the shore with her dad, I would have told her "I did too!" I know it's hard to loose a friend, I lost one after 45 years. Sometimes things break down and if you can't trust the other you just can't have them in your life. You're doing everything right, you have such a supporting and good looking husband, beautivul children, and other friends who are true friends. Best of everything!

I'll keep this short and sweet. Jacqueline you are a sweet beautiful very mature role model. The haters on your blog need to quit wasting time as I'm sure you know what a kind,loyal,and bright spirit you are and ignore their ignorance. Oh and I just saw tonight's episode and Theresa is so delusional telling you and Caroline to basically stay out of things with her daughter Gia and that she(Theresa) never gets involved with your kids or says anything about them. Did she read her own book and remember talking about Caroline's son having a strip car wash and what she thinks about it.

You know what I Love Jaqcqueline, you have been a great friend to T. I guess you don't like her just like everyone else. Everyone think she is the only problem which is really sad. you and Kathy are very kind people. At the end of the day I feel like its Joe( T's) husband is the problem not T herself. They could care less for the people each other married, point black. Just like Tersea needs to understand ,her brother is married Joey needs to do the same of his sister. The Joey and Gia part got me teary while they do everytime

Jacqueline, I think you have been a great friend to Teresa. Too good of one if you ask me! I don't think she deserves your friendship. She may be going through some of her own problems at home, but that doesn't mean you take anything out on the rest of your family or friends. The fact that she accepted the way her daughter reacted was embarrassing! I would NEVER allow my daughter to disrespect my friends or family members. That is just something you don't encourage. She had the nerve to talk crap on you as a mom. Just you wait till her girls become teenagers and she sees what she is in for. I think you are too sweet and kind hearted to have a friend like that. She obviously has no respect for your friendship. Tonight's show was just unbelievable on how she treated you. You are a good mom and I think that tough love is sometimes the only way to get through to our kids. I wish you and Ashley the best in your relationship!

Love you Jackie, keep it real!! I disagree with alot of what goes on during the show especially the latest spoiled sport issue. I think you were right on in trying to intervene the way that you did, I also understand there is editing and I cannot see what Theresa was doing at the exact moment that you were attempting to console her. The problem is that her reputation is becoming that of one of the housewives who are no longer with you, and that is where she will be soon. I enjoy watching the series but am so sick of her and her antics. Most of the time when she is on now more than ever I turn the channel. I hope that she mends her ways and returns to the Theresa that we loved once. I seriously doubt that though, maybe a visit to a Physical Therapist as she said will help!! Keep being the woman that we love to watch, say hello to Caroline as well!!

Jacqueline...you went to far with Gia. It is one thing to help the child - but you went way to far. If I found out my child was asking for me, while upset, and someone interfered, the wrong way, I would have been extremely upset.

IF someone did that to Caroline's kid, holy smokes - you wouldn't hear the end of it. Look what shes doing to Teresa because of a naked car wash issue....and these are grown men we are talking about.
