Jacqueline doesn't think Teresa follows her own definition of loyalty.

on Jun 18, 20120

Teresa and I had talked a few times about how she got paid for these articles, with the exception of People magazine and that she had two more covers coming out in In Touch after her vow renewal cover. She did share with me some of the stories she wanted to put out there about herself, but when new stories came out in the tabloids, I didn't know anymore what was true or what was not true. I didn't want to pry into her business by asking her about them, but at the same time, I wanted to know because she was my friend. I cared about her and everyone else in America was reading these tabloids and talking about it while I knew nothing. It was crazy that she would talk to the tabloids but not her "best friend" or family about her life. How would you all feel? Really think about that. I was supposed to be her best friend, you'd think she would mention them to me. It never seemed to occur to her that I was worrying sick about her. How could she expect everyone to ignore it? How could she not think about addressing it with us or be offended if we asked any questions about it, especially if the articles mentioned one of us? It was like a hit and run.

I was wondering if Teresa was just profiting from people's pity by benefiting from a big media scam while she was really living the high life or was my friend really in trouble, denying it to herself, suffering in silence and getting deeper in debt. I was starting to not respect her choices, and I really felt like I didn't know who she was anymore. I felt like I was always trying to justify her actions to everyone. So much about her life was being fabricated, so I had no idea what was real anymore. From what I was hearing from some of our mutual friends, I was starting to question whether or not our friendship was even real or if she just needed me as an ally on the show. I heard she wasn’t pleased with me because I wasn't joining her army in her fight against her family. Who in their right mind would help her fight her family, especially when we all had to work together? A true friend would help bring them back together. A true friend would never expect me to harm her family and start another war between them.

Jacqueline,

I feel bad for you, that Teresa could not see that you were only concerned for her and her family. She was so wrapped up thinking everyone was jumping on her back about the cook book. She should really sit down and read what she wrote and maybe, JUST maybe she will understand where people are coming from. Dont let her non-friendship worry you, Im sure she will realize someday that you were being just that, a friend. She will need them again. Once reality sinks in she will see what everyone was talking about, maybe not. I wish there were more friends like you in the world, God Bless

Jacqueline,

you say you don't care about Teresa now, that she and her family are no longer your concern, then you write more PARAGRAPHS about her! Let it go! It isn't healthy for you! Personally, I believe Teresa really does care about you and your friendship. But I think she would never be totally forthcoming with you, regarding finances etc. She fears failure, She finds that shameful and embarrassing. Once she denied things to you, that was your time to back off! You did not ,and I believe you are ANGRY she did not confide private matters. She did not do so, not because she does not trust you. She did not do so simply because it would be impossible for Teresa to divulge those things to anyone! Take heart and worry only about you and YOURS!

you need to stop listening to caroline. she is in your head and ruining all your friendships. when caroline walked up you should have asked her to leave because you were having a discussing with teresea, you did ambush teresa. not ok. you are my favorite person on the show but you just need to quit worrying about everyone else, just be friends with teresa, keep it light.

I think Jacqueline has the most genuine  heart  on the show. She should stay away from Theresa's drama, it will only bring stress and there is nothing she can do to change Theresa's mindset. Jacqueline, you have a wonderful family , just surround yourself with them. It is sad when you try and help others, and they turn on you. You can't change the way people are. The truth is , Theresa is a very self centered person,  when she treats her own family with jealous hatred. She blames others without seeing the blame and fault for her problems is her own doing.I wish you all the best.

How much wine did it take to write an 8 page blog about nothing but Teresa? You told her you were distancing yourself from her and her family. Then you shouldn't have been at HER sister in-laws party. Right? And as for her going straight to Dina...from what I've read on everyones websites including Dina's...Dina is her daughter's godmother and one of her very best friends why shouldn't she go to her? It appears you really need a new hobby.

Ok Jac, should Teresa bring up yours and your husbands overspending, misuse of funds and bankruptcy of his businesa in 2009? I just read about it online. Should she question your current spending habits? How about the BLK water lawsuit? She would never bring that up because a friend doesnt do that. Don't count her money and she will not count yours.

You have judged your friend in the light shown to you by someone who has now been outed from the beginning as coming to sabotage Teresa, yet you still defend her and go after Teresa. I think it is time you own what you have done and see who is really who. In real life you have a lot of apologizing to do. By the way Kathy and her husband are is just as guilty of the Teresa attack as Melissa.

You seriously have issues Jacqueline.  One minute you are telling Teresa that you want to distance yourself from her family, then the next you are angry because she walked past you at a party.  You appeared absolutely deranged going up to her yet again going over an issue that YOU told her you wanted no part of anymore (her life).  What is wrong with you?  Did you do all that on the deck for Caroline's benefit, to impress her?  

 

As far as the tabloids, her finances, and personal life - that is your business ONLY if she CHOOSES to share it with with you.  I don't care how many years I have known a friend, it is not my place to question them about their personal finances OR what happens behind their closed doors.   What makes you think she OWES you an explanation on those things?  That is just sick on your part.  When it comes to the tabloids, come on now!  Are you that stupid - or as your husband stated NAIVE enough to believe that crap?  They are called "rag magazines", tabloids, and gossip magazines for a reason.  You, Caroline, and the other members of the "Teresa Hit Squad" look absolutely silly quoting lines from that garbage.  What is wrong with you people??  Do you believe EVERYTHING you read,  If your "friend" tells you that they aren't true over and over again, why not believe her?  The viewers know the answer to that, because all of you are on a campaign to BRING HER DOWN!  In the end you all just look....again for lack of a better word STUPID!  

 

One last thing, stop the Twitter tirades you are coming off really juvenile and a bit unstable.  You stated that you only answer what you are being asked.  Why?  If Teresa means nothing to you, let some things go "unanswered".  You would come off much better.

You need a reality check. I can't believe they finally got to you. It is soo obvious how jealous all the women on the show are of Teresa, well lets include her brother too. Please grow up and get a life. Maybe you should put this much worry and concern into your daughter. and leave Teresa alone.

I feel so sorry for you.  You have put Teresa's financial issues and tabloid trash mags above your OWN LIFE!! WHO are you to judge ANYONE.  Read your bible.  Start today it's never to late to make positive changes.  As for Caroline, keep a safe distance from her and all negifive ;crap she spreads.  BUT, Jacqueline, doing the above wouldn't bring in the rating now would it?

Jac,

 

I have been a fan since the beginning, but you are really starting to look weird.  You make no definate point with Tre and to call her out publicly about her jail thing?  What good friend would do that?  You should have talked to her in private! 

I am confused about you, are you worried about no longer being relevant on the show?

 

Too bad.  I like you and your family.  I have a daughter just like Ashley and have always rooted for your guys.  But this thing with Tre,  If it were you in her shoes you would understand where she is coming from.  Tre isn't always right.  NOBODY is.  But Tre has good reason for acting the way she does sometimes.  What is your excuse?

Jacqueline. I have watched all of your seasons and just now read your blogs and am appalled at what people have said to you. I only watch for you because We have some qualities that are similar. I am a people fixer. I just always seem to find the crazy friends who i want to help but get burned in the end. Dont listen, apologize or try to explain your self or your feelings to anyone on here. Your heart hurts. Any good friends heart would hurt. These people are trying to put you through the ringer and they dont even know you other than through a show. I see your heart and it looks real and true and special to me. Keep being you and you will keep this fan for sure. It would be nice to see you smile more you are too beautiful to cry so much over ugly things in life.

your comments about teresa to your husband at melissa's record party we frighteningly demonic.  jealousy is a scary thing to watch!  get a hold of yourself.  what kind of example do you set as a parent by talking that way about someone who five minutes ago was your best friend?  disgusting.  if you've been best friends with teresa for fifteen years and are just now realizing she's a bad person, there must be something seriously wrong with you.  But in reality, you are just jealous and mean, mean, mean.  Oh, yeah, and Teresa is a lot prettier than you too. See--negativity just begets more negativity.  Be careful what you put out into the universe.

You and Caroline are like the worst kind of politicians.  You take the American people for granted and think we're so stupid that you can lie to our faces.  You must be facing pressure from your family (Caroline) to end your friendship with Teresa, or as others have commented here, you are simply jealous of her.  Reality TV is supposed to be at least somewhat real, and you're fake reasons for suddenly dumping Teresa don't add up.  We're not stupid, we can see that your "concern" about her in the tabloids was sooooo FAKE. The more you try to bring Tre down, the stronger and more successful she becomes.  You had a breakdown after she left your house because your conscience got to you and you realized that you had done an incredibly DISLOYAL and mean thing by attacking and ambushing her out of nowhere for no real reason.  You're not going to be on this show forever, you might even be replaced next season for turning so spiteful, and you've just lost yourself many fans.  TEAM TERESA 100% baby!!!

Wow, look what mean old mister jealousy did. You will now be forever the woman that went bizerk in jealousy on a reality show. I'm not trying to sound harsh, but these words pale in comparison to what you were willing to do to Teresa and what you were willing to have her own children go through so you could have your team "win." And the "win" was the audience for support for a PRODUST to make it big off the Bravo Gravy Train. It couldn't BE more clear....just sad.....and by all means, we have soken.

Just what is it that Teresa lied to you about?  I've watched every show since the very beginning, and I don't see it.  In the previous episode where you and caroline ambushed Teresa, you specifically told Teresa you were going to distance yourself from her.  Then, this past episode you had the nerve to ask her where your friendship stood.  Really???   Sounds like you were wanting Teresa to beg you to be her friend.  Tre is above that.  With friends like you, who needs enemies?  Maybe you should lay off the caroline & melissa kool-aid.  You might want to lay off the alcohol too, it's saturating your brain.

Seriously Jaqueline? i really dont know about you this season!!! you use to be one of my favorites but like Teressa said "is Caroline in your head?" honestly i dont think your a true friend because a true friend does not question them and basically throws them out of there house talking about I DONT WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND ANY MORE. on top of that you have the decency to ask her if you guys are still friends and expect her to say hi to you at her sister in laws party. how about you start making your own decisions and quit letting Caroline boss you around. i mean i get it shes your sister in law but that doesnt make her right and if you disagree with her Chris is not gonna hate you. put yourself in Teressa's shoes , if she didnt want to share her personal business with you its maybe because she feels uncomfortable, embarrassed what ever the case is you should of just been there as a friend. Also, please stop making your self look like a victim because your not!

Since you seem to be avoiding a blog this week, or maybe your writing another novella and haven't finished it yet, I guess we have to address your horrendous behavior here.  You were vile on WWHL,  your hatred of Teresa came through loud and clear.  As they say, with friends like you, who needs enemies?  Try getting a mind of your own and stop letting Caroline control you, you are a grown woman and mother.  Your behavior comes across as a troubled middle school girl.  We all get it, you don't like Teresa, STOP talking about her and get a life!

Deflecting you and your family's own flaws with Theresa's problems is sad. That's why Caroline thinks you are weak.  You are weak.  You cry at every thing that should be of now concern to you.  Caroline is a bully and thinks that everything in writing is true.  Maybe that's why her blogs now, after so many negative responses, is because she's trying to take the high road.  Or because she is her own tabloid.  Just like you.  Don't know what to believe.  Theresa on the other hand has only defended herself and the words that came out of her mouth.  If you can't take the truth, don't ask!!

kellyspeaksinfo

Jacqueline, I really think you need a break because you aren't making any sense.  I watched you on WWHL and you were dumbfounded that Teresa forgave Melissa so quickly yet the week before you accused Teresa of carrying a grudge..  You know there is a saying that is very true.  When someone lies, they have to lying to keep the story going, and when they do that, they get confused as to what they said to begin with..  That being said You and Chris have your own issues and need to deal with them..  Teresa not calling you every 15 minutes to give you an update about her financial issues, or the quotes from the show being printed in the gossip rags, or whether or not Teresa is or is not getting paid for articles, is really none of your business, no matter how long you have been friends..  Besides you don't seem to keep your mouth shut..  You run to Caroline, the horrible, with everything..  and she is on her own hormonal trip...  You two have changed alot and not in a good way....

Even though your husband said you were naive concerning T., because of your comments on Andy's BRAVO program  I think you knew what T. was like but wisely tried to get along so your work environment would be pleasant!  I'm in my 70's and  learned many years ago that if you are emotionally healthy, living with an emotionally unhealthy person can make you crazy! 

 

Beware of those whose behavior includes flip-flops and sh** shots, because they cannot be a true friend unless they change their behavior.  T. is a textbook case of such a person -- I've known people all my life who behave like her and it was helpful to know because of their "crazy" behavior we could not be friends.  When flip-flops and sh** shots are directed at me I speak up in an assertive way..  Sometimes they get my point and sometimes they do not.  It's interesting that you, Caroline, Melissa and others have all had the same problems with T. and her husband.

How could you be so Clueless?!

 

You told Teresa that you had to distance yourself from her as a friend and then you get all upset because she gives you the distance YOU asked for?  If you ask me thats crazy!!

 

When she confirms that Melissa really did communicate with Danielle to be spiteful and that she joined the show to drama trouble with her family, you act like that means nothing, and focus instead on the fact that she had a brief communication with your enemy.

 

You must be living in a bubble not to realize that the tabloids twist information to make it more dramatic to sell!! You act like Teresa wrote the stuff herself when all she did was answer simple questions.  She told you that she sells the photos so she can ake sure flattering pictures of her and her family get out, not the story. So the whole thing about her lying to you and putting out bad stories is just nonsense. You and Carolyn are just looking for reasons to not like her.  If you ask me you  and C are jealous of her for all the attention she gets from the show!  

 

Its time for you to move on to other things, this show is changing you into someone you really don't want to be.

It is obvious you have a conscience and are feeling much guilt over what you did to Tre. It was definitely an ambush  by you and Caroline.  Now be a real friend and go apologize for what you have done to her. I know there is no hope for Caroline but there is for you. If I were you I would cut all ties with Caroline, she is such a hateful woman and will pull you down where she is.

Sorry to see how you've changed this year.  I hope your husband can help you.  Take a cue from him.  Men don't sit around obsessing about every look and sentence.  Get some help to learn how to blow it off your shoulders so you aren't so confused and angry.

 

Your complaint about Teresa is ridiculous re: how she answered a tweet from Danielle, you should then apply the same rule to Melissa.   She's the one who started that whole conversation to begin with.  And answered Danielle also.  What- you have double standards?  It's obvious.  (Anyhow- it's a tweet for Heaven's sake, not an invitation to come to her house!)  

 

Drop the whole thing- you cry about "losing" a friend when you practically shoved her out the door in a wheel barrow!  With Caroline cheering you on.  You owe Teresa an apology!!  Do it and move forward.  If C doesn't tell you what to do, then you should have no problem telling her you will choose your friends and she doesn't get a vote on it.

 

One more thing- you made a comment on how Teresa is not giving anyone else a chance to make money.  WTF?  Is this your real problem?  Get real with yourself- this is why you are so angry, you are being a phony.  Get your butt out there!!  Do it for yourself!!  Without all the Teresa bashing, thank you very much.

 

PS  T is not perfect and make plenty of mistakes,  just like YOU do.

You need serious help.  Name one thing Teresa has ever done to you that even comes close to the vitriol that you dumped on her for no reason at all.  Last season she was the only one I saw put her arms around you and comfort you about Ashlee.  The rest of your family spent the whole season bashing the hell out of her.  You should be ashamed of yourself.

Thank god you finally see Teresa for what she truly is.  It may be hard right now but in the long run you will be so much better off with out her in your life.  She is far too self absorbed to ever really be a true friend to someone.  You deserve better.

klmcc1979

I think everybody knows that tabloids print lies. it seemed from out here in viewer land that Teresa just assumed that you knew that about tabloids. we hear all the time from famous people "they just write lies" and "I try not to let the tabloids affect my life because its all lies". it seemed like you were reading a tabloid and actually believed them, but dont you think if Teresa was possibly going to jail or was poor that she would tell you? she said that you guys spoke everyday, it seems like she would of mentioned it? looking at the situation from the outside its alot easier to say mean and nasty things to people, I think some of the people that leave comments or tweets have no idea what its like to walk in your shoes and shouldnt be so judgmental.

what it looks like to me is that certain people on the show are just ripping Teresa apart and putting her and everything she says under a microscope trying to find a mistake, an action, a phrase, anything to make her look bad or sound bad. she has four kids, cookbooks, a nutty husband, a tv show, older sick parents, and dealing with a bankruptcy. how perfect could anyone of us be under those circumstances? I would like to see a few people pick out a few good qualities, nice things she said, or just her brother sticking up for his sister instead of jumping on the "lets hate Teresa" bandwagon. you and Dina seemed to be the sweetest people in New Jersey and you two loved her and I wish you all the best.

Jac, WOW!! I was on twitter reading your tweets, you state that someone is obsessed with you, but you are obsessed with Teresa, read your blogs, not one of them was NOT about Teresa, and the bashing.  I have yet to see her do that to you.  You are making yourself look worse.  You are full of envy.  If she is truly the one doing horrible things, then sit back and allow her to slit her own throat! Stop being so hateful! Really, enough already!

Jac, maybe in your mind you thought you were trying to help Tre, but it didn''t come across that way.  I would hate to see you become nasty and miserable like Carolyn Manzo.  She is definitely an instigator.  Anyone with any common sense knows those tabloids are filled with garbage.  Shame you lost a frienship due to that garbage.  That was not one of your finer moments.

It's interesting that you are talking about Theresa not knowing how to remain loyal when you and Caroline are just about the least loyal people on the show. If you were really Theresa's friend you would never have gotten involved in the drama between her and her family. You would have refused to join in on the smack talking with her family or would have made an effort to bring the two sides together, not tear them away even further. There is no doubt that you and Caroline have made the Gorga-Guidice feud ten times worse. You both have done nothing but stroked the flames of an already existing fire. 

 

As an adult, I don't understand why you would care what stupid gossip magazines have to say about anyone that you know. Obviously they are in the business of making money and will make up stories about all of you. Even if Theresa has spoken to the tabloids we all know that they will twist her words just to make a good story. Also, honestly, if you were her friend you wouldn't be pressing her to discuss things that are probably already giving her an immense amount of stress in her life. A friend is not obligated to tell you every last detail going on in their life, especially if those details are legal issues. I don't understand why you think you have the right to demand Theresa tell you what problems she has. If she wants to tell you, she will. If she doesn't, she won't. It's that simple. It really isn't your business and at the end of the day, why do you care so much? It's obvious the only thing you will actually do with the information if she had told you would be to run to Melissa and Kathy and talk bad about Theresa. That is all you and Caroline do. 

 

Theresa may have her faults, it's obvious but when you say that she can't admit when she's wrong that really is the post calling the kettle black. Neither you are Caroline have Theresa's best interest at heart and neither of you ever admit when you have done something to add to the drama (which is all you two do).

@PTE1110

If you watch the episodes again, you'll see that jacqueline was shocked when Kim G. came to her door and when she came in all she did was talk crap on Danielle. Jacqueline was probably confused by the situation and didnt know how to handle it.

After all what kind of woman would support Danielle in her quest to charge Ashlee but then go to Ashlee's moms house and talk crap on Danielle and say shes a terrible friend.

 

It makes NO sense. Kim G. is just a bad friend and wants attention from the show so shes acting like a moron to get that attention.

 

Jacqueline was never FRIENDS with Kim G. she simply listened to what Kim had to say when she came to the door.

 not giving anyone else a chance to make money??? OMG, all Jaq does is sit on twitter and vacilate between bashing Teresa and peddling a product for some company with sheer desperation in her words. She then goes directly into bashing Teresa, which proves to me, she ties on in with the other. "Teresa made it, I did not, she must pay."  I'm glad jaq said that because she finally is saying what ALL of this si about: Money. At least Teresa went out and DID it , she wrote three nytimes Best Sellers. Jaq is just almost paralyzed in jealousy and hate because we did not embrace blkwater, so she is making Teresa pay because we gave Teresa the nod, and not Jaqueline. Jac is relentless on twitter trying to peddle products, how can anyone say she hasn'r been given a chnce, we just aint buying it! There's your poll!

I'm in dismay that Jac who once stood up to her, on Danielle behalf, is now all wrap up on pointing every single flaws that Teresa possess. 

But I just learn from you that we must all except each other for who we are, and just hope for the best out of everyone.
