Jacqueline discusses how hard it was to watch the scene with Nicholas this week.

on Jul 3, 20130

I LOVE Benefit Cosmetics! They have awesome products with fun names. I love playing with their highlighters! Check out their website at www.BenefitCosmetics.com, we filmed at their Soho store. That was my very first eyebrow threading, and I loved it!  It's fun to have a girls’ night out once in a while. It's good for the soul. I really didn't want to ruin the evening by talking about Teresa. That was still a sensitive subject for me. I just wanted to have fun.

Benefit in Soho is a great spot to stop with your girlfriends to get beautified before you head out for a night out in NYC! Go there for birthdays, a special treat for bridesmaids, for holiday parties, or any special occasion. You will have a lot of fun and leave there looking and feeling fabulous using excellent beauty products! Try it sometime!

I found that scene with Nicholas really hard to watch. It breaks my heart to see him struggle. It wears on me at times. My husband and I are there to support each other and give comfort and strength when the other is feeling weak. We both have our moments from time to time.

Hi Jacqueline, I'm certain you will pick up the newest copy of People mag this week. On pg 51 is a review of a memoir by Naoki Higahida. He was 13 when he wrote his memoir about being autistic. I thought of you and that you would benefit from reading it. I'm going to read it too! As a mom and retired school teacher, I have great respect for you loving efforts in helping Nicholas. There is nothing like a Mother's Love. Thinking of you and Nick today!

Keep working with Nick, and he will be just fine.  I am a high school teacher and do a lot of work with autism students, and they are amazing people.  You will be so surprised in 10 years to see the progress he makes.  He is a human being, and "work with the disability, not against it."

Jacqueline and Chris:

 

My heart ached for both of you after watching last nights episode. As someone included in the world of autism I couldn't believe my ears! Joe Gludice has now proven his true ignorance. I'm sorry someone on the show would be so callous to you and the cause. I just want to scream. God bless the 3 of you and thank you for deciding to bring awareness to this growing illness.

I pray Nick gets better soon. Bless your heart for working and doing all you can for him.

Jacqueline:  One more thing.  If people think you are crazy, there is something wrong with them.  You are a lovable and sweet girl who has been really hurt by Theresa.  I totally understand your actions so remember, you have a lot of supporters out here!

Jacqueline:

 

I applaud you for your efforts with Nicholas and sharing your journey with all of us.  My heart breaks for you as well when I see you cry out of frustration and love for your little boy.  You are lucky to have Chris to help you along with the process that I think, if you just stay the course, that Nicolas will recover a lot of his verbal skills.  Remember, he is just a little boy and as he grows he will continue to learn.  I just know it.  And, as for you young lady.  You must be suffering from body dysmorphia because out of all the girls, you have the cutest figure.  Please don't end up being an old lady and wishing that you were aware of how awesomely beautiful you are, with a heart of gold.

To the posters on this page - until you walk in someone's shoes who has a child with special needs please do not judge.  In all honesty, Teresa needs to apologize to Jacqueline.  It is obvious Jacqueline has her hands full with Nick and I saw that as soon as she started sharing about Nick's issues.   I can say this because my grandson has special needs and I know how painful it has been for my daughter.  If Teresa was a good friend, she would approach Jacqueline and find common ground because they both have their hands full.    Friends help one another.   I wonder if Teresa even knows what Jacqueline has been dealing with?  Caroline alluded to her problems (Jacqueline)but did not go into detail when she had lunch with Teresa..  Don't be hard on Jacqueline posters...ok?   It really is tough dealing with any kind of special needs child...no matter what they have...

looney were you, woman. seriously, you are validating all my fears for your stability. you could not bear to hear and see melissa and joe having a relatively calm face to face with kim.  you are embarassing yourself but mostly you are in need of something other than a drink, a friend, a wonderful family, or cosmetic surgery. what is left, jacqueline? where can you turn? you know the answer but it means you admit you are in trouble.

Jacqueline, You are such a strong person. No one is the know it all parent. But you are doing a great job with Nicholas, he is so lucky to have you as a mom. Very proud of you.

Something is clearly, mentally wrong with you. Get off the show and get some professional help now!

You sounded and acted just like your daughter on last nite's episode.  Now we see where Ashlee got her crazy obsession with Danielle.  You need some help!

It was hard to watch you unravel with the phone conversation with Teresa in a public place, I think you should have stayed away from the show. If you do not get a grip on yourself you will lose it! How can you take the phone away from Kathy like that? You need to get well yourself, hopefuly the retreat may have helped you.

At one time I had lots of enjoyment watching you, these days it is sad to see the person you try was, with friends like you who needs enemies, stop stirring the pot and loving how you team up on 1 single person cowards do that. Go away already sick of you

You behaved badly in the store with Kathie.  You don't understand your part in any of the drama.  You are not all that innocent.  Take a long look at your actions that were shown to the rest of us.

I am tired of listening to you bash Teresa and act erratically.  It is disgusting the way you attack her anytime and every time the cameras are rolling for 2 seasons now.  It's like you are projecting all of your anger and bitterness onto her.  You are clearly not a good person and have no manners or class.  Most people can see through you and Caroline and Melissa so please stop ruining the show and get off of it already.

So sad to watch Jacqueline.  And Caroline needs to but out!  She is always stirring the shit!  Melissa no longer has my sympathy.  Maybe we are seeing the real person!

I don't even like to use the word ''hate'' because that is such a strong and negative word, but you leave me no option!

You are acting like such a brat lately, it is sad!! I dislike you for so many reasons, but mainly for the backstabber you have become!

Friends don't do that to friends! Teresa has not treated you the way you have treated her!

You're the reason why the say "with friends like those, who needs enemies!" was invented!

Just retire from the show and give your family all the attention they need and deserve!

Hopefully Chris will divorce you and get fully custody of CJ and Nick.  Poor kids.  You're totally creepy these days.  No wonder you liked Danielle.

The three of you must be on for the money because you Melissa and Joe looked all kinds of crazy tonight, just all kinds of crazy!

Wow! Is all I can say. You really need to seek help. Your behavior was just way over the edge and so juvenile. Take the money and focus on yourself and your family.

I really did like you. But you have become bitter, and quite frankly, a annoying as all heck. I like to think that you have become a victim of editing, as did Theresa, but you can't edit CRAZY!

I don't understand why some people down here can be so mean. You know what is like to be dealing with all the things she is dealing with a mother? It takes a toll on you in every aspect. Of course she is going to be all over the place. And unfortunately as humans, when someone when we loved and trusted hurts us nothing but hate arises. So don't go bashing her for being human... And for those of you who forgot, last season Tre made Jac seem like she was the one setting up Melissa. That is when Jac realized who and what she was dealing with. And by the way Jac has always had this crazy fun spunky sensitive personality, don't act like you've been fooled. See people for the entire season not just one or two episodes. We all grow and change as certain things in our life affect us.

Every season you get more and more crazy. Last season we saw you go crazy on a couch and pretend you were asleep or drunk.  This season you going on and ranting about Tre still and taking away Kathy's phone an acting all crazy. Going to get togethers and still bringing up Tre to her family. You should get off the show and focus on your son. He needs you right now. Your husband needs you. He seems so patient with you. You have gone off the deep end with this Tre story line that your looking insane. Get help soon. Even Kathy said your going crazy!!!!

Im thinking if you care so much you really want to be friends.  You miss her and she might be a friend.

You need to leave the show to focus on your family and to get a grip! Your husband, who is one of the most reasonable person on the show is clearly embarrassed by your crazy behavior! Get a life!

Kathy hit the nail on the head...you are very lucky that we no longer have insane asylums...because that would be the first place your family would escort you to....and Melissa gets a big rise out of upsetting you when it comes to Teresa because you can see it on Melissa face...you have been had and used by Melissa Gorga

You seem really immature this season.  Outside of seeing a few of your struggles with your son, it seems like all you do is bash Teresa.

Jacqueline as a mother, your wonderful with Nicholas.  It is probably the most exhausting job and it must seem thankless at times but he knows you and loves you so much.  The "show" your on, I think you need to rethink your role...it is making you seem like your nuts and I know you are not...you are either so hurt by Teresa or so crushed by Nicholas story but either way, there has to be some time for you to spend and be productive instead of worrying about Giudice or Gorga...Just quit and take time to worry about your beautiful little boy..he is adorable..best wishes to you all.

Jac, Go home, back to Vegas you show girl you're ruining the show for us. You are hateful and bitter old woman I can't stand you and Melissa and Caroline.

I'm sorry that you, and your family, are going through what you are with your son Nicholas. I truly pray for the best for all of you. And I feel that you should concentrate on your family, and leave all the drama between you and Teresa behind. You have your plate full with your son, and to see how you behave & you talking with Teresa is very childish. I feel you have gotten out of control with your 'high school' antics and comments. You should be the smarter person in all that drama, and leave it alone and behind. Best of luck with everything in your future endeavors.

Wrong Wrong Wrong of you taking the phone away from Kathy the way you did...that was just plain WRONG, Jacqueline.  I don't know why you think that was okay.  You put Kathy in a very awkward position doing so.  I can't believe you kept pushing Kathy's hands away when she asked for her own phone back over and over...what you did was just wrong and childish. Shame on you honey.    I can't believe you would put Kathy in that position.  Teresa wasn't the one acting "insane" at that moment...YOU were!!

YOU NEED TO BE FIRED!!! Stay at home with your family & stop it you look pathetic & sad for everyone to see. Your taking this TOO FAR & it's someone else's family your causing damage to. You should be ashamed of yourself as a wife, friend & mother you are not a positive role model & you cannot help other women struggling with children with disabilities if you lose credibility because your acting like a five year old. You resemble Danielle - read these comments & please get a grip before something worse happens to your mental state.

 @ibis Kathy was SO embarrassed by Jacqueline's behavior. I felt so sorry for Kathy. Jacqueline was so rude and un-lady like. I couldn't believe the way she acted and then Jacqueline acted like she was so proud of her behavior.

 @Debbieinmissouricitytx I agree! Melissa loves to bring up her drama with Theresa when you're around. Tell her to shut up and that you don't care to hear it, if you really don't the way you claim. I really like you and I think emotionally you're a wreck- which is understandable, but understand you're stooping down to Melissa's level when you do this. You're not as unreasonable as you look when you're around Melissa.

 @atlgirl27  couldn't have agreed more. Jacqueline you are starting to look like a nut. Just focus on your own family and stay out of their drama!

 @momincolo Exactly!! She knows Kathy and Tre are not in the best place and are trying to fix it. So as they are talking about the retreat and moving fwd, Jaq snatches the phone and gets all types of crazy.

 @momincolo Agreed! And even worse, Jacqueline got in the way of Kathy maybe making amends with her COUSIN, just to further her own selfish aims!
