11. Why am I not mad at Kim? I was disappointed, she knows how I feel, but Kim and Melissa's issues have nothing to do with me. Melissa isn't my family member and Kim didn't try to publicly put it on me when she knew I had nothing to do with it (unlike Teresa). I appreciated Kim's text to let me know that I wasn't the target and that she was honest with me when I asked her questions about the set up after the fashion show. I also respect the fact that although Kim did something crappy, she took responsibility for it. (All of it.)
12. I shouldn't have got so involved with Teresa's family drama at the reunion, but it was frustrating knowing the truth, and I thought it was about time that Teresa was called out and that she owned up to at least one thing she has done and/or said. She didn't! This kind of B.S. had been going on for over 10 HOURS as well as all season long, and I was tired and aggravated at this point. I'm not proud of losing my cool but it was way over due and I needed to release. It was a long, grueling day. Everybody has their breaking point, and you witnessed mine.
13. I think my husband and I have shown who we are as people and what kind of relationship we have, so I don't need to sell myself or our relationship. Bottom line is that we are truly happy and proud of one another.
I have not written a blog in the last few weeks, because I feel that I pretty much said everything that I wanted to say, to Teresa, at the reunion, and in my blogs ALL season long. Those feelings of animosity toward Teresa are really not healthy for me. The season is over and so is my friendship with Teresa, and I'm at peace and thankful that I don't have to relive either one of those again. I've let it go now.
Jacqueline, so glad to hear you have rose above the craziness!! I feel you are so real and have never changed with being on the show,, I wish you and your family the best!! keep being you,, kind & sweet!!
If class jumped on Teresa she would have to run and get a shot of penicillin!!! If you have class, character,and claim to be a lady........you dont have to say it people know it. Also a lady shows self control which she has NONE... You rock Jacqueline stay true to yourself I personally think you are the only one that has that thing of old called INTEGRITY............
Jacqueline you are just adorable! And your son is BEYOND one of the cutest little things I've ever seen! God bless him and you and your family!! Teresa is nothing more than malicious and spiteful mean-girl! You're so much better off completely excluding her from your life. I know what it's like to have a close friend just turn on you suddenly for no reason at all and say very hurtful things. My opinion? More power too em, cause obviously something in their life sucks enough for them to be jealous of mine and therefore they want to wreck it. You have a beautiful family and a beautiful life and don't deserve such negativity! Keep strong! Good luck and BEST of wishes to you and your family!! Can't wait to see you in next season!
Hi Jacqueline. Just wantet to say hello from Norway and say that I just saw the last episode of seson 3. I haven't read the whole blog yet, because I don't want to know what happens in seson 4. You are one of my favorites. There is so much going on in your family and friendzone that is so far from my reality thank God! I wish for you the very best, because I think you are one of the best women in this "show"!
Jacqueline you were a true friend till the end with teresa she dont deserve your friendship nore time she knew what she was saying and doing was wrong there is no excuse no matter how much your family gets on your nerve you dont go out of your way to hurt them or say such horrible things.. as for melissa and kasthy you are both awesome people its just ashame that all your kindness went to waste trying to fix things
In my opinion and after watching all episodes of season 4, Jacqueline and Caroline are not good people and strive on other peoples problems. If you were real friends to Melissa you would not feed her with negative details to make her hate Teresa. In my personal life I have delt with friends just like this which is why I am certain that Jacqueline and Caroline are not the angels the show makes them out to be. Teresa, Kathy and Melissa are family and should deal with their issues AWAY from the other cast members. Even Lauren is turning into her mother.
@peanut1_ I think Lauren turning into her mother isn't such a bad thing. I don't think Jacqueline and Caroline need to say anything to Melissa for her to realise that Teresa is not a nice person. I am sure that she is smart enough on her own to work that out, without the help of two of the shows most intelligent women.
peanut1_ Whether we like it or not, our friends do get into our personal family problems because WE share them with them. Melissa and Kathy didn't stop Caroline or Jac from saying things, they let them speak and then they gave their piece. Plus, it's a reality show that shows the reality of what women are like... gossipers. We ALL are guilty of it and are LYING if we say we've never done it. Not saying it's a good thing we do it, I'm just stating the truth that even though it's wrong we still do it.
Watching reunion again and my opinion has not changed. Jacqueline was more involved in what happend to Melissa than Teresa. If she wanted to she could have stopped it. If she was a true friend she should talked to Teresa instead of throwing her under the bus. This was her family Jacqueline you should have had more respect than that. Just because you call people names doesn't mean it is true.
I don't see why the public likes teresa so much. If you watch on most of the shows the bad girls usually change over time and start being nice but Teresa just keeps getting worst. Case and point evangeline33 are you watching the same show as me. Teresa own kids made fun of their Aunt. Children are taught that stuff. Why would any parnet drag their children in to this mess. I never heard Mellisa's children say nasty stuff. Mellisa made some digs but not nothing like Teresa said about all the woman and you think poor Teresa and personally Teresa needs to stop trashing people and start listening to them. In order to have friends you must be a friend and I think Mellisa, Caroline, Jacqueline, and Kathy have all tried to reach out and over look all the nasty things said to them or about them. Its so funny how Teresa and her husband trash everyone whom doesn't agree with them and Caroline got racked over the coals because she didn't want to be around them. In my opinion Teresa gets a free pass for all her poor behavior and all the other ladies are held to a much higher standard. I would like to close with what Teresa said about Lauren on the reunion show was sick and nasty. Lauren is beautiful and when Teresa got nasty with her I said there is no hope for someone that nasty and I pray she hires a good nanny so those girls can be raised up right. I dont care if your on T.V. or not you should not say or do the things she has done.
Maria3141 very well said there i just dont understand how acting they way she does is okay she should be ashamed of her self
Am I watching the same show. They all call Teresa terrible things including Jacqueline's daughter and Caroline's kids. Gia is older and can see things that even if her mother told her not to do it she would. Do not comment on any of these mothers as they are all the same. They all made the decision to put their dirty laundry on TV. None of them are inocent. If you saw Teresa on Celebrity Apprentice, maybe you can see why people like her. She is a good business women and works hard for what she gets. Most people respect that.
oh jacqueline ! you are not innocent in any of this!when melissa started the show everyone seem's to forget how melissa was out to make a fool of teresa, she played up to u an all teresa;s friend's,she was very calculating ,also you were not a good friend to teresa,you and the manzo's made fun of teresa and her family Alot( yes you did) go back and watch,you did ! And that was way before teresa came out with her cook book! I am sure teresa was very very shocked and hurt after she watched that season .The one where teresa and joe invited everyone to her family's cabin. That was the season the betrayal started 'you all showed your true color's ms. jacqueline !!!!
evangeline33 Are you serious? You're joking right?? You think Melissa and Jac are MORE to blame than Teresa???? And were more calculating and out to make a fool MORE than Teresa? Geez... rose colored glasses must really do the trick cause I KNOW that ain't the same show I watched.
Jacqueline you are way too good for Teresa don't settle for Teresa's version of friendship - you are just ammunition to her bullying ways - Teresa's treatment of all you ladies is appalling and definitely reflects badly on the show. Lucky for you - you have a lovely family and family members that respect you and love you so concentrate on that
how does Teresa even stay on the show she brings nothing to the show and she has to go they have to get someone that can interact with the rest of the girls. the only reason to have teresa on the show is to listen to the dumb things that come out of her mouth and laugh at her she really in not a very intelligent person it pretty funny.
I just wanted to say you were the reason I became a loyal fan of the show. I think your a real person who is has real beauty inside and out. Its funny because the public gets worked up over the real housewifes and we know its a reality t.v. show. Last season my niece and me would get in to long debates over Teresa (she liked her, I started to not like her) but I'm happy to say just one year later she 100% agrees that Teresa is not a nice person. I just read you were not asked to come back and I'm shocked and upset. I never blog or do this. I just wanted you and your husband know someone in the Panhandle of Florida thinks your amazing and at the reunion show I was loving you finally giving it back to her. Wishing you the best.
ccwriter Maria3141 I hope it is, because I had gotten so sick of seeing her lash out at Teresa! In my opinion, Jacqueline is nothing but a jealous bore....
@Maria3141 I totally agree with everything you said. I also have never done this, but think that all the ladies on the show, with the exception of Teresa, are honest, trustworthy and loyal to each other. Just a question, do the housewives actually reply to any of our comments?
I totally agree with your assessment of this whole situation. It is best left in the past and move on. I must say however, that I have always viewed you as a loyal, trusting and loving and caring individual, that's why I am so surprised that it took you sooooo long to recognized and understand Teressa's true character. I recognized Teressa's nature during the episodes with Danielle. I understand that you were close friends at the time, but from my point of view, Teressa created and instigated more than her fair share of the drama involving Danielle. That is not to say that Danielle is a valid person to have as a friend. But I believe that your friendship with Teressa blinded you to vindictive and controlling ways, and supported her any a lot of things that she was totally wrong. During my observations of Teressa, I view her has a controlling, vindictive, lying SOB, I really feel sorry for her daughters. Is it just me or does anyone notice that when Teressa is caught out --- she responds in a high pitched voice or screetch. LOL You have every right to show disdain for Teressa and her behavior towards, you Caroline, Melissa and Kathy. I hope you move on to enjoy a true and lasting friendship with these ladies of class. Something that Teressa is definately lacking. It amazes me that so many people have the gall to criticize you in your decisions this past season, it makes me wonder what show were they watching. My only regret is that I was reserved, and some what harsh in my view of Melissa in the beginning, until I recognized that Teressa was Jealous of Melissa to put it mildly.
I wish you and your family well, and pray that you receive the blessings in your life that you deserve. You are a pretty remarkable woman in my book. Stay strong, and choose your friends wisely. I have the utmost respect for you, and Caroline.
I just wanted to say about your son and what you have released about him having autism, my grandson son is 10 and he has the worse autism there is. At first they tell you its mild but they really don't know until they go on to school. My daughter was told told he would eat with his hands.not be able to give himself a bith.get dressed, talk or do normal activities. WRONG. As a parent you have to take the bull bu the horn and demand he learn. My grandson can not speak but he eat with a fork and spoon and takes his own shower and gets dressed and undress and he does one better, he puts his dirty clothes in the hamper. He cleans up after himself and puts away his toys. He has just learned to make his bed and helps changing his sheet. My daughter was only 20 when she found out about his autism but she a miracle for him that GOD has given him to us. By the way he goes to church everyweek and is in Bible study. Does he learn yes he does you cam see it in his eyes. Even though he doesn,t talk wvweynight my daughter puts him to bed and for the laast 7 years she say I Love you and he respones with I you too. Don.t give up, My prayers are with you. I hope this get to you cause I just became a blogger.
I just want to say that in my opinion you have handled yourself like a REAL person since the beginning of the show. Good for you. There are people who deserve respect and happiness-you are one of them. I hope you continue on the show because I like the way you try to see the good in everyone-even if they do not deserve it. I wish the best for you and your family and you are all in my prayers.
Jacqueline, I get you don't trust Teresa anymore, but during the reunion, it seemed as if you were obsessed with the idea of "getting your point across" over and over again with Teresa. This was so crazy, I mean you kept sticking your nose where it didn't belong when it comes to Teresa, her children, her brother and sister-in-law, and her marriage!!! I'm soooooooooo over you, Caroline, and this whole Manzo/ Laurita clan. Instead, y'all should focus on repairing the relationship you have with Dina.
I love the show but this last one was craazy! I was shocked on how all the gang attacked teresa, her parents (shame) and her kids (double shame). Jacky you seem to be drinking a lot this time and I think you may have a problem developing from this. I think your worst mistake was jumping on the "we hate teresa" train. You showed us your two faces, when you pretended to be teresas friend and the one where you ran as fast as you could to trouble maker sister in law and gossiped. Do you realize that when the show is over, everyone will be able to watch the show and see all the crap that went on and all of the betrayals??? I think you should focus more of your attention on your family...its not as great as you like to pretend it is..sorry! You had to send your daughter away because you didn't know how to deal with her...OMG. I hope you don't come back because seriously, you should focus on your little boy who by the way is a sweety pie. You also should limit your time with the troublemakers: Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Kim or it will end up ruining your marriage because no man is going to keep dealing with that every day. You need to be your own person and stop allowing others to think for you. You were sweet but not so much these days!
I mean this with all sincereity, but, it is probably not good for you and Teresa to be friends. You were co-dependent in this friendship, even nosy, as if your life centered around Teresa's every move. If I were Teresa, I'd start pulling back too and maybe not being truthful with you. Calling each other every day, who does that? Really? This isn't high school or a date. Perhpas that is just one of the problems toward the downfall of your relationship. This isn't to say that Teresa is innocent, it's just saying your obsession of this relationship is off balance. Somewhere along the line, the lines of respectful friendship & distance got crossed.........perhaps by talking (I mean gossiping) every day. Remember, it takes two to gossip, one to talk and one to listen. You are just as guilty as the person you're pointing the finger to. Sometimes friendships just end. You find out along the way who is and who isn't your friend, who listens and who listens and get's way too involved. I'm sure Teresa also found you not to the be type of friend she is looking for just as you found in her. Both of you can move on and learn from this experience. I hope both of you find more healthy and balanced friendships in this world.
i've heard of caroline and kathy leaving, so does this mean you aren't jumping ship? really? don't you think you have some personal matters to attend to? you mean to say you're going to willfully continue with this nonsense? i don't think i can stomach a season of you and melissa beling buddy buddy. barf. maybe you'll hang around long enough to air more of your own dirty laundry this time (we know you've got your own bankruptcy case going on) and finally hang yourself with your own meanspirited behavior. like any train wreck, i guess it will be interesting to watch.
Remember Melissa said she was moving back to Franklin Lakes? Well, Caroline is moving out of that big house but Jac is still there. I guess Melissa is taking Tre's spot as Jac's friend. Won't be watching. They should have just given Tre a spin off.
Teresa was 100% right when she said at the reunion that you had nothing else to do but worry about her.
jaqueline You had said on the reunion show that you got ultherapy......and .it looks awesome. .can you tell me where you got it thank you
I just read that Danielle is coming back...This should be interesting....can't wait for season 5!
Oh no I sure hope this isn't true!
I read she was asked and declined the offer!
Dear Jacqueline, Have enjoyed watching thru the seasons. Am afraid I have to bow out of watching with this new seasons line-up. Mostly trashy women being brought onboard. Would have loved to follow you , Caroline & Kathy along with your families. Best wishes to you all. Will be back to watch the show when the regulars of past seasons are brought back, minus of course Teresa.
@Overandout Oh......since Bravo brought the trash in on season 3 with the inclusion of Melissa and Kathy, you should be able to adjust nicely. Bravo has been there and done that...what's new??
No wonder the world is so full of dumb people, people have so much neg. things to say about everyone. Stop all this....... Jacqueline is a great person and loves her family very much, she is a great WOMAN, MOM. Well all that have so amarts about us know Teresa is a very bad person, evey thibg she does she is out to hurt someone....PLease stop all this neg. talking on Jacqueline's page. EMAIL IT TO YOURSELF because her ture fans dont care to read all ur dumb comments...Allways keeping Jacquline and your family in my prayer...NO 1 FAN.
@dontlikeit FYI....."Teresa is a very bad person, everything she does she is out to hurt someone" = negative comments Practice what you preach. Lol
Well, I guess the truth hurts. Teresa IS a very dishonest, manipulative person. Jacqueline is not. Sooooo happy J sees T for what she is. Now that is not negative...just the simple, unadulterated truth.
Jacqueline, I've been watching the RHWNJ since it began. I want to say that of all the wives that have been on this show, you are my very favorite. Here are a few of the reasons: first of all, you seem to be the most *real* of the wives. I can identify with you as a mother, a friend, a sister-in-law etc. And altho I didn't watch each show this season bc I was so sickened by some of the happenings, at the end, you still seemed to be the one HW that remained the closest to who you were from the start of the show. 2nd, I struggled with infertility and when you and your husband were struggling to get pregnant and stay that way, it really touched me. I'd been there and my heart broke for you. I saw a look in your eyes that I'd seen in my own eyes (and in the eyes of so many of my friends who were struggling with the same issues) many times. So very often I wished I actually knew you so that I could've reached out and hugged you and try to make you see that, no matter what happened, you'd come out of all of that ok.
I hope that in the future, you will continue to be true to yourself. I was proud to see you stand up for yourself at the reunion and not sit and take body blows the entire night without saying anything. I was moved by the story of your child's autism and ANYONE who has negative comments about that is absolutely disgusting!
I hope to see you on future shows and wish you and your family nothing but the best. You are truly a rare gem and what you & your family have is truly something special. Live for the moment and don't ever let anyone tell you that you are anything less than a very special woman. I've always been amazed at how well composed you'd stay when everyone else on the show seemed to be falling completely apart. In some ways I suppose that's good and in some ways bad. Sometimes you have to fall apart and pick up the pieces just to figure out who you are and who will be there for you in the end. BUT, there are people who are seriously just that composed and don't ever let things get to them. Whatever the case may be with you, please just continue, as I've already said, to be YOU!
Best of luck dear Jacqueline,
Jacqueline, I LOVE YOU!! i miss the show so much. I cant even BELIEVE what Teresa is trying to get away with. She will lie ON TV.....then try to talk her way out of it like there isnt documented proof! She is CRAZY! I think she is so upset about the way her life is going right now that she wants to put everybody else down. You are WAAAY too good for that. My prayers are with you and your family during this time with your son.
@JacquelineLaurita ... Do not worry about losing a freind.... Friend always come on goes but family comes first.... Take care your son !! bless your heart to your family !!
It's too bad all that had to happen. Hopefully Teresa will come around someday but she has become such a different person. And she does hate on Melissa...she denies comments that we all saw in all previous seasons. I think she lost herself along the way and thinks she's a "star" but really she just keeps making herself look worse and worse. She used to be a nice person. She is one of those "stand alone" people and it doesn't make for a good friend anymore because she seems to want to tear down other people. That kind of behavior is "apparent". I felt bad that you had to go through all of that.
rose65 Teresa never said Melissa was a stripper. She repeated rumors melissa was a Stripper. She repeated rumors Melissa was looking for a richer man. She repeated those rumors in a private conversation with her brother in which he first told her rumors he heard about Theresa's husband. Then Joey sat on that conversation for months. Months later, during filming, Joey finally remembers the conversation, but not too accurately, and tells Melissa and Richie and Kathy and the world teresa said Melissa is a stripper and will leave you for a richer man.
It does not matter if Theresa changed or is a bitch or crazy or annoying. She did not go on TV to air her family's dirty laundry - Joey and Melissa did, because they couldn't get on tv otherwise. Instead of standing by a friend - or better yet - standing clear and far away from family drama - Caroline and Jacueline inserted themselves so they could keep their tv show jobs.
Teresa is still the same ditzy vulgar gavone. Its Caroline and Jackie who changed. Caroline realized her kids are too dumb andlazy for school, so she needs to get them TV anchored jobs/income/opportunities, and her marriage is so far down the toilet she wanted some talk show - advice show - cooking show - earth mother type career beyond RNJH. Jaxkie just a cuckoo bird who's lonely drunk world is spiraling out of control having a temper tantrum because she thinks Teresa got a bigger piece of cake.
dexter.pie rose65 Okay, firstly, repeating rumors is kind of the same thing as "spreading" rumors. Secondly, Teresa did indicate that she thought Melissa was a stripper--in her talking head shot after meeting Angelo. I don't know what she does says off camera, because I don't know her personally, so I'm not going to speculate. I really don't believe that Caroline and Jacqueline have changed at all--Caroline has always said what she feels, and Jacqueline has said from the beginning that if she feels she has been hurt, she hurts back. As far as Caroline's children go, Albie graduated both college and the police academy while suffering from dyslexia. Chris worked at the Brownstone 6 days a week and bought an investment property when he was 20. Lauren may have been helped by her mom to start a business, but she certainly isn't being lazy about it--lots of children get assistance from their parents in this manner. I do agree with you that Teresa is a ditzy, vulgar "gavone", however. : )
dexter.pie rose65 100% correct and well said dexter.pie....totally agree with u! Team Teresa!! Jacquline is the one that has completely changed and went against Teresa...so sad
