If you listen to Teresa's brother, Joey, you can hear the sincerity in his voice and see it in his eyes. He admits that maybe he is doing something wrong that may may have contributed to the downfall of their relationship and he decided that maybe if they open up communications through therapy, that they could fix their relationship.
Teresa also proved another point of mine when she talked about Kim D. Teresa calls her friends “fans” and that makes them “supportive friends” in her mind. Her friends have to ONLY agree with her. For the record, I can truthfully say, that Kim D. does NOT agree with Teresa ALL the time, by her own admission. Sometimes Kim just says what Teresa wants to hear, just to pacify her. Well, sometimes the truth does hurt and your true friends will help you to look inside yourself in order to correct yourself, to bring out the best in you, because they care about your well being.
It's amazing to me how Teresa talks about loyalty so much but then she let's her friend Kim D. talk about her brother and Melissa the way that she does and Teresa seems totally fine with that. Just an observation.
When I got that text from Ashlee's father about her not doing well there, I knew it was because she was at a point where she desperately wanted her independence. She wanted to live freely as an adult with nobody telling her what to do and when to do it. I don't think she realizes that working in the real world, it sometimes STILL requires deadlines and being told what to do and when to do it. Strict guidelines were NOT going to work with her at this point. It was only making her more resentful.
Jaqueline.....you rock sista. You have more stregth and character in your little pinky than that souless, brainless turd of a human being. ....and don't get me started on her ridiculous husband. When we reach a certain age and have our familes, friends are a bonus....and not a priority. We don't have time in our busy lives to deal with drama and BS. You are very smart to weed out the rats and keep the true ones close to you. You have such a beautiful family, home and heart. God bless you and your family! And btw- we all have the hots for your hubby!!! LOL.....his strong slient, no BS ways give us all lady wood!!! LOL! xxoo
Hi Jaqueline, I can understand your thinking there are bullies out here bashing you. I can understand your thinking process but because someone disagrees with you, doesn't mean they are bullying you. No, I have not read all the comments nor have I watched all the episodes. I will say I do come here and read the blogs out of curiosity, yours and others, and I have to say, if you believe some are bullying you, then you must agree that you too could be accused of bullying simply because you disagree with another. I believe the word 'bully' is being over used. Too many believe that just because two disagree, the one they disagree with is now a bully? This doesn't make sense and shouldn't make sense nor be given validity. I have to add......those that comment or tweet.....I don't know how to tweet and so don't have the benefit of reading any......anyway, those that comment, the fans, should not be accused of having too much time on their hands. One could say that this comment is a 'bully comment'. Do you see where I'm coming? It's all too messy......don't add to it......
ummm.... Chris Laurita was laughing just as hard as Joe and Teresa were about Joe's joke... and Joe did apologize, it wasn't homophobic, it was just stupid, so I wouldn't beat that drum too much... I like Jaqueline quite a bit, and this was the only part of her blog (well, and the sermonizing at the end) that was blatant pandering. You're better than that, Jacqueline! =)
Your bitterness to Teresa is really disturbing and to try and dismiss any negative remarks re your blogs and as obsession for you is just plain sad. If anyone needs to open their eyes it you. In a year re-read your blogs and hopefully you will get the point of what many viewers are saying. Show a little class and maybe you won't get so much abuse.
Bravo please call curtains for Jacqueline at the end of this season, if only for her own sanity and you should also pay for the therapy that is so needed with all of the housewives
You basically just told everyone that follows the show, reads your blogs, follows you on twitter and comments to you, should get a life! Not nice, Jac! Without these people and their interest in the show - you wouldn't be on the show! Check yourself.
Also, I understand that you don't like Teresa, but it's getting sickening that you pick on her with her every action in every scene. Lay off a little! You comment that her laughing at Joe's remarks was disgusting. Rewind the tape, because your husband is laughing too!! Is he disgusting as well?? Call a spade a spade! Just because you don't like her you single out every action she makes.
Oh, and you being in Teresa's closet before your Chicago trip is evidence of how phony YOU are, certainly not the other way around. If she knew what she knows now, after seeing you constantly degrade her behind her back, I don't think she would have invited you there. Seriously, you need to get a grip. And how do you know there is only a small contingent of viewers that don't agree with you, posting comments over and over again, based on IPL addresses? How could you possibly know anything about anyone's IPL adresses? Are you insinuating that someone at Bravo is giving this information? And while I'm at it, I found if far more offensive to the gay community the way you and Chris were joking in your bedroom about him coming out of the closet, than I found Joe Giudice's comment. The same comment that your husband did indeed find funny, unless I am as "idiotic" as you say I am. You're really, really reaching.
Why do you think that you know how everyone should think and believe. So is this Caroline getting back at Theresa because of the Dina issue. I think you old sissies did more to hurt her family . I don't think Theresa is the reason between Dina and you & Caroline. Dina has her own reason maybe she read between the line and made a decision for herself.You judge to much what did Joe Guidice do to you your always twisting his words after he showed you much love. after what you did to his child the nerve you have. You are mad at Theresa and going after her to bring her down because you and Caroline don't know how to forgive .I don't have a twitter acct. I watch every Sunday with friend and everyone is getting sick of you two trying to purposely take her down. Now we know why you admitted it it is the Dina issue. So Caroline and you are trying to destroy her you both admitted it. Whoa ya !!!!! Get over it, grown ups don't act this way.
So if we disagree with you, we're not intelligent? And we're a "small" group? Check all the comments from your last blog. They're mostly negative and they're not all from the same people. I used to love you and the show. Now it's a show about hating Teresa. Why did you ever get involved with her family strife? You were her friend and you should have just been an ear and a shoulder to cry on. Instead, you have taken sides and you're not admitting it. Both Joes, Teresa, and YES, your beloved Melissa are to blame. You are always bashing Teresa. Your blogs are 90% about her, and it's all so hateful. You and Caroline ruined a once great show.
It is easy for you to judge the viewers of the Reality TV program where YOU put your life there for us to judge, you sold it, not us. We don't hide behind our computers.. what do you want? My name, address, phone # and SS# to comment about the program we grace viewing? If you don't want to be judged you shouldn't have put your life out there! Is it necessary for you to write 7 pages and trash Teresa right and left instead of talking about you? Write 1 page if you can, write about you!
Jacqueline, Hi, Never apologize in YOUR house!!.. You are who you are.. if anyone can't accept that... let them hit the road................Your an amazing insightful, kind women--if people can't see that, "who cares?" :D
Jacqueline, I have never commented before, but I just wanted to let you know that I think you are always so positive and try to look at the bright side of every situation. I feel that you and Caroline handled the situation with Gia's outburst in the right way. Actually, If that was my friends daughter, I would have been way harsher on her. She was out of line. I know she is only ten, but the way she was talking to adults was so wrong. Teresa needs to take a real long, hard look in the mirror and think about what she is teaching her daughters. I thought the book was funny and did no harm at all. People are way too over dramatic about that. You shouldn't have apologized. The sad thing is... I used to think the things Teresa said was funny. You can tell she isn't the brightest crayon in the box, but she has changed from being a ditzy, fun-loving, materialistic girl to a mean person:( As a viewer, it is obvious how she is changing. I can only imagine being her friend and being so frustrated because she isn't opening her eyes and realizing what she is doing. That has to be hard. Anyways, love watching every week. You have a beautiful family and wish you luck with everything:)
You are a lovely woman, genuine and very open. If only there were more people like you in the world, I suspect we'd all smile a whole lot more
Jacqueline, You did nothing wrong! You should not have apologized. If Theresa claims she is old school, then she should know that if she considered you her family, then you can and should correct her daughter. That girl was very rude and if she was rude to my friends (her elders) Her hide would have been mine! That's what's wrong with this world today. I grew up where any adult can reprimand me if I were to be rude and I would get it from my parents when I get home. She mentioned your daughter but she herself can't even control anything that comes out of her daughters' mouths and look at their ages! Theresa and Joe say too much in front of their kids. Kids are not born with a manual. They can be the sweetest things and once they graduate high school, they change. Theresa is a ball of drama and you don't need her in your life.
Great blog Jac! It doesnt take a rocket scientist to see through Teresa's chilldish, foolish, game. I commend you on the amount of time and effort you spend trying to help Teresa understand however, Teresa has no intention of entertaining any understanding of the problems that she has orchestrated and created with her Brother and his family and respects nothing anyone say's.She created the game, and everyone must play by her rules. Loving, logical,caring, advice and friendship is not included in her rule book and the winners are those who say nothing intelligient or kind about the game rather, bad mouth her Brother and his family. (Kim D.)The time you have spent, The patients you have displayed, have been so unappreciated by Teresa because, this game is played by her rules only.Waste no more of your time on her game as you will surely lose.Run and dont look back! You are a wonderful woman,wife, and Mother and let no one tell you otherwise.Especially, Teresa. Joe Guidice continues to crash and burn in every episode and Teresa continues to make excuses for his repulsive ways.It is a shame that Dina has been estranged from the family however, She too will see through Teresa and her manipulations of the game just as every other person with any common sense has. Your Children are all Beautiful, Your Husband is wonderful and you are a kind,warm and loving person.Focus your attention on others who exude the same wonderful qualities and disgard the ones looking to mistake your kindness for weakness and waste your time. Most people woud kill to have your kind of caring friendship and loyality, While others like theTeresa Giudices of the world who are blessed to have it, take it for granted and have no understanding of the Blessing.Good luck to you Jac AND ALL THE BEST!!
Jacqueline I love your blog this week. I think it's the honesty that you expressed in this one. I totally agree with you in regard to the situation with Gia - I never thought for one moment that you were attacking Gia and not sure why other people thought so. You're right about parenting skills; everyone deals with that in a different way. You are 100% right about Teresa and her relationship with her brother. She could actually fix it if she wanted too. She blames everything on Melissa because she is so jealous of her. it's really very sad. Well enough of Teresa - keep up the great work and stay true to yourself.
Well I do love what you wrote about coming out and sticking with people who support you. Your right if people claim to love you something like being gay shouldnt be a deal breaker. Ashlee, well she is 21 and doesnt want any rules, that would be fine if she was living on her own dime. When you are dependant on others you have to contribute and work in the confinds of thier rules. If everyone cut her off financially she would be singing a different tune. Teresa may never look within herself and understand what she contributes to the decline of her relationships, some people have no skills in self reflection. I guess for people who are around her they are finding they have to make the choice to cut her out of thier lives. I know some think of this as jumping ship, but as adults with our own struggles and families to concentrate on, it gets hard to constantley focus on someone elses issues. It gets really hard to try and communicate with and guide people who never take any responsability for thier actions. You are right true friends tell you when your not right and do not kiss your butt and agree to everything said and done. Especially when its to that persons detrament. A true friend tells it like it is. I am personally grateful for some of the people in my life who have called me out on my bull, it has always kept me grounded and they are still my friends even after 20 or 30 years.
I have some constructive criticism for you....stop trying to defend yourself to people who will never see your side. You are giving them too much power and it's not worth it. It's 2 pages of needless wasted energy. Also, focus more on you and yours and less of what Theresa is doing, not doing, saying, not saying...We are all watching the same edited show, and still we all interpret it differently, but ultimately, some things come across loud and clear. Were you abusive to Gia, absolutely not..Could you have handled the situation better, absolutely yes. Most of us know that patronizing a child who is having a meltdown is not a good idea, especially if you have such negative feelings for the child's mother, and said child is a bit of a brat.....The Guidice/ Gorga fight should remain between the 2 families, off camera...this is increasing becoming uncomfortable to watch....it has become a season of elevated ego's, who is right, who is wrong, who has manipulated what and it's heartbreaking because there are real innocent children involved who are struggling to understand and who are witnessing such bad behaviors, who knows how this will manifest in their lives. The only bright light is Rosie and Jamie, which honestly speaks volumes about how living openly, authentically and lovingly, makes a difference. The lesson is....If you stop needlessly defending your actions, if you stop micro criticizing Theresa, and start focusing more on you, you would do much better, because you do have a lot to offer when you are not being defensive and negative....
I thought this was a great episode. Luckily our local high school is very welcoming to all kids no matter their sexual orientation. Teens don't have to feel isolated or different just because they don't love like "everyone" else. Shameful is a word that comes to mind when discussing Joe and Teresa's behavior on the bus. That comment to Greg was inexcusable and someone should have called them out on it. Teresa has become a sad caricature of her former self. Joe obviously has a drinking problem along with major anger issues. I feel so sorry for their kids. It is obvious they are absorbing the tension that must implode daily in that house.
I know you are well-meaning and I'm not a Teresa fan, but in a constructive spirit, the way you made Gia feel small and humiliated is something I have noticed in your interactions with Ashlee. If you make someone feel strong, independent and successful in the way that you treat them, they will act accordingly. If you belittle them and wag your finger, they will have two choices -- submit or rebel. I have always treated my daughter as an equal with respect and at 12 she is mature and responsible.
I did not think you were attacking Gia by reading the manners book to her. In fact, I used those books myself and found them to be very helpful when raising my two children. However, it did seem to backfire on you as Gia was not open to hearing what you had to say... live and learn. Don't sweat the small stuff and ignore all the negative things others have to say to you. Not everyone thinks you were bullying a child and I happen to adore you and your family.
In my opinion, Gia has some pretty significant issues that her mother needs to deal with. Teresa is only hurting her child by pretending that everything is okay and not addressing those issues on a more meaningful, deeper level. That is her problem not yours and you shouldn't let her problems stress you out. Wash you hands of the whole entire mess : )))
I was shocked and saddened by Joe's comments on the bus. I know he is somewhat socially challenged. But drunk or not, he had to have known how cruel and insulting it was. I am equally horrified that Teresa laughed too. I have to commend everyone else (most especially Greg) on the ride for keeping their cool, except for the shocked looks and apparent nervous smiles. I will assume the wedding turned out beautifully and offer a belated Mazel to the couple...and by the way I also thought the grounds of that house were AMAZING
Jacqueline, I adore you and think you're such a loving and giving person. It's sad that Teresa supporters can't see that. Hold your head up because, you're a great mom and if anyone judges you for the things Ashlee may or may not be doing at any given moment, they need to know that you gave her so many chances because, you love her and they also need to know that Ashlee is an adult and makes her own decisions. I do hope things are better for her now and that she appreciates you & the rest of your family. I am guessing that things haven't changed with Teresa and it's a shame. I do hope that someday she sees the damage she's caused not only her friends but her own family. I think the way you handled things with Gia was actually right on the money. Her mother didn't scold her for showing her behind. She should have pulled her aside and told her that wasn't the way to act. You don't stomp, pout and yell when you don't get your way. I still say children need boundaries! Seeing how Gia's father acts though, I can see why she acts the way she does. He himself has NO boundaries and speaks out of turn. I really don't think he sees how his word effect those around him. He needs to take some classes in manners. You have a beautiful family. You just keep being you and don't even read what the haters write. Take care!!!
I read your blog with great interest this morning. For the first time, I did not watch last nights episode due to drama in my own family'. I have learned a few things. First, if you have a problem with someone try and understand how you think that type of person will react. If you know they are not receptive to any type of critisizm, LET IT GO. Even if it is eating you up inside it usually ends up a bigger problem, and heartache, and it is not worth it. Secondly, if you have a solid family (husband, children) make them top priority. The world today is different. Everyone is busy. People have no manners anymore. It is very difficult not only to find ONE true friend, but also hard to make everyone in your extended family happy. Things eat at me inside, and it appears that some people get away with bad behavior and continue to flourish. This is hard to understand and live with, but those people will one day be accountable for their actions. I think you want everyone to know the truth so badly about what is going on behind the scenes of this show, but again, LET GO. If you are healthy, have healthy children, and a good husband, food on the table, a roof over your head, you are extremely fortunate. I have to admit this was one of my favorite shows, but some really harsh, horrible things people say to one another is very hard to watch. What started out as fun to watch has become sad, and painful, with only a few happy moments. I hope you understand that the viewers can see things for what they are, and not all of us have on "rose colored glasses." Good Luck!!
Jacqueline, I think it's obvious from the show that you are a very kind-hearted and sensitive person. I hope the attacks from your haters don't get to you too much and you can let it bounce off of you. I know that has to be difficult no matter how hard you try. Keep your head up! On another note....I love you and Chris together. You guys are so cute and you can tell just how much he loves you. He's so supportive of you and your family, but can stand up and be "the man of the house" when he needs to. I wish you guys the best....you 2 are truly one of my favorite Housewive couples and the mose sincere/real.
Thank you for you post about love. I think it's important to remind everyone that no matter what you are a child of God and He loves you.
Jacqueline, I love you and I agree with you completely on everything that you said in your blog. There are so many people in this world that to this day continue to make gays feel like they are "different." When in fact, they are NOT!!! I think it is disgusting how Joe Giudice is always making degrading comments about gays. How does he feel when he reads all the things that people say about him and his wife? I'm sure not too good so he should have some compassion and some class and most of all RESPECT when talking about people. I could never have children but that doesn't mean that I don't sympathize with the way things were going with you and Ashlee. You did the best you could and your husband Chris, he is AWESOME!!! I think he is the best husband, father, stepfather, brother and overall great friend to all. Have to go, there is thunder and lightning. Love you.
You are an awesome person! Don't let cyber bullies get to you too much. I think Joe and Theresa should take some etiquette classes because I often feel embarrassed for them. I like how you always try to be polite and keep the peace. Theresa's great loss for losing a wonderful friend like you.
I have seen you mature in the 3 years I have been watching you. I also see that when you are backed into a corner especially with Teresa, you state different things. First and foremost, you and Chris raised Ashley differently unfortunately as Ashley knew nothing more than to walk all over both of you, the stinging sensation that now Ashley is doing that to her dad, just shows that Ashley will do what Ashley feels like. Once she turned 18, she can make her own decisions and live with those. Ashley never showed much respect for anyone. Now, Teresa is raising her children differently, but as we all noticed Gia's disrespect to her elders, it goes to show you different parenting styles still have the end results. Today's kids are not what and/or how you and I were raised. It's just not your kids or Teresa's kids....it's today's society of kids between their teens throughout their thirties that don't care if they have respect for others or not, they are living their lives, whether easily or not.
Now, currently, you still hold hostility with Teresa for whatever reason. You say you are moving slowly, but the truth of the matter is that Teresa hasn't really changed much over the 3 years, she still the italian mama that now has much more stress and strain like the rest of us to raise a family. You don't even see that you and Chris have the American Dream, where as you are in the few, that can stay at home and watch your children grow up. Teresa is missing out on special moments that you get to have everyday. It doesn't matter if Teresa forgets and/or insults people at this point, as it's all part of her struggle. Teresa does not want the public to think that all is perfect, but she also is a private person. You and Teresa were inseperable, what happened? Teresa Made comments on things that were wrong, but did they really have to deal with YOU? No....
Life lessons for which you know all about as you struggled when Ashley was little, did you not ever say something, that one you forgot or maybe you were just frustrated that things came flying out of your mouth that made you feel better......We all do it....some regret things some do not.....
I believe that you have the heart of a lion and some day you will truly understand and see things in a different light. Forget about what Caroline says, her opinions are just that opinions. You have the ability to judge without others, but bare in mind that you do have the life of Reilly and knowing that others may not have that anymore, should open your eyes to a different opinion. The cat fight between Teresa and Joe and Melissa is their fight not yours. Joe and Melissa are so hyper to be on TV and want that spot light, they will do whatever it takes. Learn from mistakes and move on.
I wish you and Chris the very best.........
I think you are right about Teresa and her blame shifting and delusional thinking. HOWEVER, I do think you fight every battle that is in front of you. Meaning, you don't know when to just let things go. I have noticed that a lot of times you get on the level of your aggressor. A lot of times you would get on Ashley's level instead of just being a parent and saying, I'm the parent and that is the way it is. With Gia, the book reading was similar. You kind of got to a 10 year old level of thinking by bringing out the book and forcing her to listen instead of just saying, "Gia, when you can be a good sport, you can join us." DONE, no need to keep going with the fight. I also notice you like to have the last word. No need. Make your point, move on, and do not entertain their behavior any more.
I do like you a lot. You are very sweet and are just trying to be everyone's friend. Keep that sweet nature up, just know when to fight the right battles and when to just walk away from a situation.
Jacqueline~ You are my favorite housewife. Since day 1 you have always been so real and you always tried to keep the peace. Teresa use to be my favorite but she has changed so much and it is really sad. I wish someone would put together a video montage of all her lies, maybe she would finally realize she is a lying hyporcrite! Keep doing what you are doing and one day, when Teresa realizes her bigot husband is nothing but a looser, she will be sorry she lost friends/ family like you!!!
Love is love! Who cares if you love a man or women? As long as they make you happy, are supportive, raise you up and not bring you down, why should anyone care? Like I said in response to Kathy's blog, I'm really glad that gay relationships was the focus of this show. People are born who they are. Nobody chooses to be gay just like nobody chooses to be straight. Why some people can't wrap their head around that is beyond me.
So glad you addressed those nasty commentors!!! People shouldn't confuse your kindness, fairness and levelheadedness for weakness. You and Carlolyn seem to be the most genuine an honest people on the show. I felt for you both reading their messages and hoped they weren't bringing you down. Hold your head high girlie...you're a good egg! XO's from DC!
It really IS horrible how much hate there is out there towards you, however, you get what you give. You are appearing hateful on the show and that creates negative feelings in viewers. In season 1 and 2 you were loved and the tweets and posts about you were much more positive. If you are wondering WHY this hatred is coming from viewers, watch the show through the viewers eyes and forget all the inside info that you have. We can only judge based on what we see. I do agree that the nasty hateful tweets is beyond crazy but I don't blame people for disliking you and your family at this point.
As far as Teresa forgiving you... SURE she forgave you at that time because she didn't actually know exactly what happened. After seeing the episode I can see why NOW she thinks your actions were horrible. It doesn't mean she was holding a grudge this whole time.
So much hate from you and Caroline...........Note: to Andy, time to clean house and soon please........this story is getting old. Get rid of all of them except Teresa and Rosie...........maybe add Caroline's brother and get Dina back........
I just want to say that I am not on a team, i respect most of the ladies, Jacquline, please just let Teresa go, by bringing up everything you keep giving her more publicity, just let it go and move forward with your loving family, you sound so bitter in your blogs and you don't need to be. I am jus sayin
Thanks for the insight to the episodes Jacqueline. I appreciate you taking the time to write extensively to further our understanding of what we see each week. You are one of my favorite housewives!!
No apologies necessary; Rosie Pope nailed it on WWHL; stating for fact - both you and Caroline handled Gia in a good way, a responsible way. If Andy needs to re-post it to clarify. she is a good authority and I thought the same way she did before I saw her with Andy.... just sayin' to all those bloggers out there that have brats running around at 10!
I can't believe some of these comments. These people are as batty as Teresa. Don't listen to all the haters. People with brains know you, Caroline, Kathy and Melissa are the best. Teresa is a NUT JOB!!!
Like the rest of the viewers, your blog is dedicated 80% to Teresa and the small 20% to the content of the show. You type pages and pages of your "I told you" so's and on and on. Personally I think you have a split personality. You should not amplify parenting traits when you have all out loss the war with one of your own. Your parenting opinion on others bares no weight because you have failed with your own child....what part of this concept don't you understand? Getting along with family you have also failed at, as I understand you punched Caroline before and you don't get along with Dina now. Hence, your family opinions bare no weight because you simply cannot get along with your own family. You appear very troubled, which is sad. I hope you get the help that you so need.
I have always loved the show, but I have to say that this season is disheartening.
Teresa has either been blinded by fame, or the first couple of seasons did not portray her clearly. Your need to call her on it at every turn is casting a bad light on you instead of her and opening you up to the backlash of her mindless followers. Those with even half a brain see her for what she really is and there is no need to constantly point it out. I loved Teresa and her husband the first couple of seasons, but "the thrill is gone".
I'm happy to hear that your relationship with your Daughter has improved. Every child is different and all you can do is love them unconditionally while trying to guide them through life. Someday she will really appreciate you and all you and Chris have done for her. I promise!
Caroline is going through the change. Of COURSE she is going to be a Debbi downer! What woman isn't at this stage? Only women who have not been through it yet, or are so drugged through it they can't tell which end is up would be judgmental about her now. To those of you who are ripping her to shreds this season - just wait! Your day is coming and all will be made clear. lol
Jacqueline, keep your chin up. Stay positive. Kick Teresa to the curb and don't look back. Focus on your wonderful family and stay true to yourself!
I only watch the show for you! I would not even bother about the negative tweets, etc...Be true to yourself that is all that matters. Stop focusing on the negative twitters & focus on the fun you bring all the time! Love love love you guys!
Chris was laughing at Joe's inappropriate comment, too. Probably even harder than Teresa. Is he a horrible human being now?
Blah Blah Blah...I cant ever get through your blog it friggin bores me to death...dont give me or anyone advice on life you need to know how to take care of your own....and please quit bashing Teresa...these long blogs makes me think you have too much time on your hands get off the juice and get a job
