It is unfortunate that the situation between Teresa and I has become so ugly. It didn't need to go this far. It makes me a little sad knowing that this is the same girl that I used to know and love. I'm not sure if she changed or if this is who she always was and I had just been ignoring the signs.
Regardless, I am not going to encourage this feud to go any further, because that would be completely pointless and useless in my life. I have much greater things to focus on. The bottom line is that Teresa and I are no longer friends and she is completely out of my life. Whoever Teresa has become, where she's been, where she is going, or who she is going there with is not a concern of mine.
I know I said during the reunion that I wished Joe Giudice would go to jail, but regardless of if I think he deserves it or not, I will not wish anything bad for Teresa or Joe. They have 4 beautiful girls, and if anything unfortunate happens to either one of them, it effects those girls, and as a mother I do not want that.
Whatever Teresa has to say about me, and what others choose to believe or not believe, will NOT change my reality AT ALL, or hers, or anyone else's. I know who I am and what I have. This is where I am extremely confident. I have an extremely strong support system in my life. We are in a very good place. We are in a very happy place with our marriage, our kids, our new businesses, our relationships with other friends and with the majority of our family members. That is not to say that we don't have challenges and setbacks like everyone else once in a while, but the overall quality of life we have is very, very good and very REAL.
I like you but I still don't get why you would get so upset over the InTouch magazine articles...who believes those!?! For you to have a serious talk about it and question things,,,somethings are between husband and wife you have no right to ask for explanations. If you have fun with a friend just enjoy that time with them. Tell them you are there for them if they need you and then enjoy. That's a true friend. I don't blame Teresa for being hurt. And you do owe her an apology.
Twintastic If someone has news articles on a magazine that Teresa herself put there than why not ask her about them? this is public knowledge and Jacqueline saw so many articles out there she felt she needed the truth - you can't have it both ways - put an article out there and no one can ask u about it?
an no one owes Teresa an apology -
if I hear Teresa say this one owes me an apology I am going to SCREAM
I watch the show and I do enjoy it. I just saw the episode about your son. These are words of encouragement for you and your family. We have a child 12 with autism some days it's hard but most days it's great. When we first found out I decided that I would take that list of things they said our child would never do and made them into a list of goals. Then I set out to make them attainable for our child's level of development. I must say it is working and people cannot tell our child has autism. Our child is a happy 7th grader with A's and B's in regular classes at school and has friends. I wish I could tell you more but this is public and some things about our children are not for blogs. I have said a little prayer for you and your family. Best Wishes.
You are not a good friend to Teresa! You told her you were going to distance yourself from her and her children first. Caroline came out of nowhere to join the dump on Teresa set up.
If I were Teresa I would never ever talk to you again.
How can anyone with a good heart and mind ever think that Teresa is a good person and owed an apology? She is cunning, and mean and out to make everyone look bad. It always backfires on her. Jacqueline is a great person who has tried time and time again to help Teresa but who can help the insane? Cut Jacqueline some slack. Would you really trust Teresa if she were your friend?
I applaud you!!! You seem to be the nicest and most real on the show. Family does not guarantee character! Of course we try harder and hold out hope for family and our dearest friends. Unfortunately, there are people who are self entitled, manipulative and are willing to sacrifice anyone who gets in their way. All while they tell you " I love You"....No one is safe. It took me a long time to understand no matter what you do, you will never please them. Family or not! I believe anyone who will use a friend or family members mistakes/misery for entertainment or as retalliation, is a character flaw. Even if you are mad at them! Words are so powerful and people should think before they speak. Sometimes you cannot take it back and it can change everything. I don't know how people live with being mean. But they do it every day.
Teresa is toxic and she sucks all the oxygen out of the room from what I can see. You are doing the right thing. She is not worth it. From the looks of the 1st show this season, nothing seems to have changed. As far as the reunion, the meltdown was a long time coming. Losing control is embarrassing, but a person can only take so much. The up side is....It is liberating to reach the moment you just do not care ANYMORE!!!
That being said, it is hard enough to deal with relationships in our daily lives. I cannot imagine being on TV. I hope you all survive another season!
Jacqueline please do not take the negative comments on here about you to heart. Obviously they have not watched all the seasons of the show to see the real Theresa. You have been a true friend to her and she is a snake. Her and her husband talk so horribly about people and now their kids do too. I am sorry, but anyone mother out there with values and descency would not bring up their child the way she does. Props to you for being the bigger woman but also for standing up for yourself and realizing that the negativity needed to be eliminated from your life!!
Please... Pot meet kettle... You spent all of season four playacting being hurt, being concerned and just stirring the cauldron to keep something going between you, Caroline and Teresa. You act as if you're a saint, as if your hands are clean and you just happen to find yourself in the middle of all this controversy, but the only person you are fooling is yourself. Pretending to be asleep on the couch. You're a jerk and phony.
I'm with the last person I have adored you too but you did have motive in the finale in making Theresa setup to look Melissa bad. you are miserable because your son is autistic and your going through hard financial times so you called her over to your house to make a long time friendship die because you were channeling your anger at anyone you could at that person was Theresa. I think her family did come on to hurt her because she talked to Danielle at a moment of hate (which she admitted) and they weren't talking when she came on the show. it's so obvious that she is hurt because she knew they came on to hurt her and you guys are all making her look bad strength in numbers right. how the heck do you expect her to win if she acts like nothing than it's not bothering her and if she acts sad she's a victim. she can't win! and Melissa and joe are fun but they came on with a clean slate and acted like victims.
Out of all of the housewives shows, you are the most unstable. You're a prime example of "it's not what you know, it's who you know". You play many high school games, pretending to be sleep, but when the target is not around, you'll have more to say then anyone. I'm willing to bet you're on some sort of medication in order to get through the day. Just the fact that you're always saying " oh I look so fat", tells me how insecure you are, and you need others to validate. Because you're no where near fat. You're unstable and those of us who are really smart at reading people can see that.
Watching the reunion- HOW DARE YOU SWEAR ON YOUR CHILD!!!! Does getting to Teresa mean that much to you. THAT WAS THE WORST ACT OF ANYONE ON ANY REALITY SHOW OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jacqueline. You said you heard the man tell Teresa the bald guy was going to embarrass Melissa. Those words came out of your mouth. Shame on you Tell the truth.
Jacqueline I really use to like you but after watching this last season you are so pathetic. I could not stand watching you and your sister in law at the reunion. You are so far up Melissa's ass its un real. Your husband is probably the only sane one there. Yes Theresa is crazy but at least she has compassion when she fights and you can tell she's hurting you just sound so fake or like some scratching there nails on a chalkboard. Andy even had to tell you to but out so take his advise.
You are a beautiful person inside and out! I am watching the last season and my heart just broke for you listening to you speak about your son. I felt that same feeling when my son was diagnosed. You have a long journey ahead of you but it will be a journey that is worth every moment good and bad. You and Chris are a strong couple and will make a difference in your sons' life. Take care!
I got it! I know now who was texting you Jac as everything was going down. I'm a little (lot) late on this but your hint about reading number 4 and 7 gave me the answer. It was Kim D who was texting you what was going on and that's why you were so positive that Teresa played a part. Thanks for the hint. I'm so glad you're coming back. If it weren't for you, Caroline, Melissa and Kathy I wouldn't watch the show but I think you all are great and so glad you are coming back. At least with this show there are more housewives I like.
Jac, keep your head up. You were undervalued as a friend and very much taken advantage of in that relationship. For people who chose not to hold grudges others who chose to cannot understand the conflict it causes you. Forgiveness is earned. Not given lightly and once a trust is broken it is never fully repaired. Your life held great struggle with your family and I think that it is very humble and brave to chose to not make it all about you. Though she may flourish in the limelight for now. She is not healthy in her heart nor will she be in future relationships. Never stop seeing the best in people, it shows everyone the best in you! Always love with your whole heart, it shows the world what your character is made of! Very much looking forward to seeing you next season and all my prayers are for you and your family.
Jac, so glad you are coming back; I was worried that you wouldn't. Hope you are able to repair things with T to the point that the season is not so dark but that you are smart enough to keep it a casual relationship.
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!!
Lynn@2013 I so agree with Lynne@2013 so happy that Jacqueline dealt with Teresa - I get frustrated with T. she lives in LaLa land and she has to tear down the wall and be real - take care of your family and best wishes with your son Nickolas - keep toxic Teresa away
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.
@Jjabg4 seriously, I don't consider Jacqueline or Caroline all that intelligent. Jacqueline for one is unstable and insecure, to lay there and pretend to be sleep, where as a woman who is secure in her own skin wouldn't play that high school game. I'm not saying she had to get involved, but do not play a game that you're sleep. And when the subject comes up behind Theresa's back she'll have so much input. When things hit the fan, she simply can't handle it. She immediately starts to scream at the top of her lungs. As I said unstable. I am willing to bet she takes medication to get through the day. I call that sad, not intelligent!
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.
mracz peanut1_ Talk to Teresa - there is only one way to deal with Teresa and that is if you agree with her and only her - Teresa does not take responsibility for anything - the group itself was wrong but Teresa is no innocent
@mracz @peanut1_ I agree, Jacqueline pretends to be neutral, but she is the type that can't be trusted, not to mention unstable.
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.
mracz Maria3141 Teresa works hard? she gets paid by airing out dirty laundry in magazines, she tears down everyone in her world to get ahead she does not like anyone else to succeed and she even steals her mothers recipes calls them her own to sell cookbooks and than to add insult to injury she made her one cookbook a tabloid newspaper - get real - Teresa works hard at verbal abuse
Maria3141: I fear that Teresa is so demented that she is poisoning the mind of her own little daughters. The oldest one is already putting her little mouth into adult problems, and clearly basing her opinions on what her mother is ranting about in front of her. I fear the day will come that the child will develop the same hate-filled, delusional personality as her mom......and that will be very, very sad. A child is a blank slate that you write on every day. Teresa is writing horrible things on that childs "slate".
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.
It looks to me like Caroline starts everything because she hates Theresa. The whole big showdown with Melissa was Kim D, which she admitted to.She also said that Caroline,Jacqueline, and Theresa all knew the same info, so how is it Theresa's fault? It was Kim D ! And they ALL knew the same things !!
I think J is very passive aggressive and gets very nasty, then plays innocent victim. While her "saintly" sister-in-law sits by after starting everything. Theresa is wild, but not nasty or sneaky like the rest of them.
As for Caroline, in her own over-used words, she's "disgraceful".
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.
@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.
