As you could probably tell, I was in no mood to workout when my trainer, Jolene Mathews (@Jolenemfitness & www.JoleneMatthews.com) arrived at my home. I'm not always resisting training like that, but I had just heard that Teresa was upset because I went to "her" gym and was telling people I was stalking her. I explained my feelings about that "situation" in my last blog, so I won't go there again. Teresa had been out of sight, out of mind for so long, and I had been feeling at peace with everything until I heard Teresa was talking about me again. It upset me so much that I found myself feeling sucked back into those negative feelings toward her again. I was basically upset with her for her being upset with me. What do I do when I get upset? I vent. So clearly, I vented. LOL!
I actually found that scene amusing. Poor Jolene had no shot at getting me to focus on working out that day. Jolene is a great trainer and a great friend. Jolene was actually very supportive and vented to me about how she felt hurt by Teresa as well. Girlfriends vent to each other, because it helps us feel better about whatever is hurting us. We purge and cleanse.
I do Botox and I am not ashamed of it. So what!? I love to poke fun at myself about it. It makes me laugh. If I remember correctly, the reason I mentioned Teresa doing Botox in my interview was because of what she had said to me during the reunion show about mine: "You and your Botoxed face!" LOL! I felt like Teresa saying that to me was odd, because I knew she did Botox as well, so I couldn't figure out why she would say it in such a derogatory way to me, as if she would never do it herself. Don't get me wrong, I respect that some people want to remain secretive about their beauty secrets and not everyone is as open about sharing them as I am. However, it bothers me when someone says derogatory things about others doing beauty treatments that I know they have done themselves. That was the point I was trying to make.
Jacquiline, I hope you do not believe Teresea. Neither you nor Melissa. It is very easy to see when Teresea is lying. She bites the side of her mouth, and then licks her lips. Her eyes open wide and she insists she is innocent. She isn't. Has she asked you once how your son, Nick is doing? I know she didn't on the show. Both her and her husband are ignorant about Nick's condition. Do you know that Jenny McCarthy (who is going to be on the View in september, her son was diagnosed with autisium, and now she says her son is cured. Maybe you can get in touch with her somehow. I wish you the best, you have wonderful kids and a great husband. Best wishes.
well...well...well~ look who's crazy now!! I mean seriously you look so ridiclous I can't even begin to try and explain to you how childish you are acting! And my Goodness on National TV even......................... Jacqueline do yourself a HUGE favor and get off RHONJ.
Its all very childish to me .. and im so over the Teresa situation every single week.. smh Jacqueline im sure has better things she should focus her attention on .. like her sick son and wild daughter..!! She just looks really sad on tonights show.. its very petty and childish..!
There is not a person watching the show that does not know you ladies get botox and other beauty treatments. If I had the money I would do it too. it is no biggy for you are Tre. Your spirit is what makes your fans love you. The past 2 seasons you seem to be falling apart at the seams. Are you okay?
You need a good therapist or rehab ...there is something not right. Sweetheart you need to clean your brain of Teresa, she certainly doesn't ruin her life with all your negativity. For your own good stop embarrassing yourself..leave the show and get help.
No matter what you say or do there are going to be vicious people out there posting terrible comments. They do not know how it feels to have your life filmed and everything out there for everyone to see. Nobody on this show is innocent. Everyone has had their horrible moments. I pray for your beautiful son. And I hope that some of the negative turns into positive.
So, when will you be done with your new novel of the week about "horrific Teresa?!" I say "novel," because 8-13 pages is NOT considered a blog!
If I was you,i would absolutely ignore Teresa! you have so much on your late. I hate that everyone keeps telling you things that she has said. they really need to keep their mouth shut as well. all that is doing is hurting your feelings more. you two were so close that I know it hurts both of you. but she will never take responsibility for anything she has done,so leave her alone and get on with your life.you have a gorgeous family. and you are a terrific mother and wife
You have never stopped being obsessed with Teresa! You are clearly jealous of her or something. If you had gotten over her you would be apathetic, not constantly taking shots. You have no storyline anymore except your sweet little boy who would be much better served without his mother on Twitter and reality tv. Guess you need that cash. Funny how all your comments about T's finances are coming back to bite you in the butt. Please Bravo, switch it up get rid of Jac and Melissa and give us something worth watching.
Jacqueline, you were always one of my favorites. First I would like to say I pray for you and your family. I am sorry you are enduring a painful time with facing Autism and I think you are doing a wonderful job. I will pray for you and your family.
As for the issue that has disappointed me as a person is to see you build alliances with Melissa. If you step back and see it from a viewers stand point, I believe you should butt out. They are family. And although as a viewer we see a edited view point. I do believe it takes two to tango and one day, your boys will bring another woman into their lives and you may not have an ideal match that you as a mother would have chosen. As a mother you hope that the new daughter in law will enhance the family, not make you play defense.
I do believe Melissa does allot to burn the fire between Theresa and Joe. I also believe Theresa might have played defense last year and had a lot of struggles and made bad choices to alienate herself. However, enough is enough. I do think your choosing Melissa to hang out with was kind of a wrong choice. Loyalty is number one in my book. And it seems that you didn't want to get involved when Carolyn attacked, but you chose to defendi
Melissa against Theresa, instead of focusing on your own family.
Melissa is not a victim.
There are dynamics in their family and as someone who was close to Theresa, you should have never meddled. Why do you have to save the world. You can listen, but it seems that you are only sticking to Melissa to hurt Theresa and see her pay and that is sad to watch.
Jacqueline I am so proud of you. As a special education teacher, individual with disabilities and sister to a wonderful 21 year old brother with Autism. I know how hard you job is. People don't understand that in addition to everything else you do you have a 24/7 responsibility even more than just having a child you have a child who learns differently and needs additional support. If you ever need help reach out to the community that supports you please. I am a NYstate educator and am happy to help
all the Jacqueline haters need to stay off the blog. teresa does as much bad mouthing as anybody else does. #calmdown
Jacqueline deserves what she gets/she is trying to create a story line by being a troublemaker/she is boring and needs to go and concentrate on her special needs son and her misfit daughter-pleeeeeze it's time people stop defending her antics
Teresa was "talking" about you only because, after being out of the picture for so long, you show up at the gym where she works out at the same time she typically works out. It is, of course, not "her" gym, but showing up there when you don't normally work out at that location or time is highly suspicious!
jennylynnrice Melissa lives right there and invited her to a class that she does. Teresa admitted that she normally goes very early in the morning. So, why aren't the ladies allowed to go?
Jacqueline-I was reading about autism and came across a doctor who said a lot of times children are misdiagnoised and they really have a hearing impairment, then I noticed Nicholas was holding his ear on the show tonight. Have you ever heard of that? It might be something to look into, they say even doctors misdiagnose because many times they just listen to the parents.
My son has ADHD and it took them five years to diagnose him, they thought he had it in Kindergarten and he was on a behavior plan til the end of 4th grade before they recommended I put him on medication. He went from failing all his subjects to straight A's and no friends to having friends. But the downfall was he hated the medicine, he didn't feel like himself and he couldn't sleep and no appetite. I decided to home school him to keep him healthy for now but that is getting hard on me so I am going to try school again. He is 13 now.
My heart goes out to you and Chris and the boys. It will get easier and it will all start to come together. Holly Robinson , the actress has twin boys, one has autism. She has made major breakthroughs and she is the sweetest person you should call her.
tusense It's funny, I was noticing the same thing last night while watching the show. Nicholas was holding and pulling his right ear and I was wondering if maybe there could be something going on with the ear. I'm sorry but I know that there are a lot of people out there who talk so negatively about Jacqueline but how would you like to be in her shoes? Not all the money in the world can change the fact that her child is sick!! What's wrong with people today? People calling her "wacko Jacko" I mean really is that necessary? You can see how much she loves her son, along with her husband Chris they are doing whatever they possibly can to try and make life a little easier for her son. Come on people, give her a break. She going through a lot, have some compassion!! Lord, that is the problem in today's world, there is not enough COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING!! Jacqueline, my hat is off to you and your husband because I know how frustrating it is when you see your child hurting/hitting himself and there's nothing you can do about it. Don't listen to all these "haters." Just try and stay as positive as you can and just keep showing him how much you both love him and you'll see that if God willing things will get a little easier. I wish you and Chris the best with everything and my prayers are with Nicholas and your family. I love you guys! YOU ARE GREAT PARENTS!! God bless you all.
BORING....that's what you are. Hope Bravo lets you go soon. I mute my TV during your scenes.
Grow up your so immature at times, quit counting other people's money and so worried about there life's
gpedrick All you have to do is pay attention and have empathy to understand why Jacqueline is dealing with pain and anger. Get a heart. She's going through hell!
dobnerk I understand your compassion for Jacqueline but where was hers for her close friend when Teresa was going through her issues? Where was Jacqueline when:
Teresa's personal BK issues were made public?
Teresa's father getting sick
Teresa's brother call calling her garbage and humiliating her on national TV
Teresa's family joining this cast behind her back to take her down
Teresa's rocky relationship with her husband, etc etc
Jacqueline wasn't there for Teresa. She was the one trying to get Teresa to talk about her personal issues on camera when Teresa had clearly stated she didn't want to. Best friends honor your wishes and have your back. She was the one ripping her supposed BFF to shreds on Twitter divulging all of their private conversations to all. She was the one gossiping about the behavior of her BFF's children - shall I go on? Jacqueline is a very spiteful woman.
They ALL turned their backs on Teresa's when she needed friends to lean on the most .
OMG - Teresa threw you a little botox bone and you turned it into a novel. We all remember Teresa getting botox at Danielle's party the first season and she probably has had more since then. BUT you have frozen and carved your face and body up to the point that you don't look anything like you did in the first season!
Im not trying to be mean but sometimes you act very childish on the show. I don't even know what your talking about when you try to insult Theresa. Maybe you shouldn't be on the show anymore.
I really wish they would replace you. You are boring and always seem like you are acting. Not a very good actress at that. Please leave the cast. We are sick of hearing you bag on Teresa.
You are awesome!! Love that you aren't ashamed of who you are and what you do!! Its very inspiring!
It's so strange to watch this show and than to read the comments on your blog. It's feels like we're all watching completely different shows. I don't believe you tried to set up Teresa last season. In group of women, many of whom show a shocking lack of insight, I believe Theresa is the most self-deluded of all. It would be sad if it weren't so frustrating to watch. Based on your husbands' interviews it appears the majority of your time is devoted to Nicholas and your other children. However in order to have a story line and some continuity, the editors have chosen to focus and highlight when you speak about Teresa. The show is no longer "The Real Housewives of New Jersey"- it's "The trial and tribulations of The Guidice Family." The first seasons I eagerly watched each show-now I fast forward when Theresa or even worse, her husband appear on the screen.
You are the most boring cast member of the entire show. You must agree or you wouldn't focus so much on other cast members--mainly Teresa.
Wow !!! Your blog is full of Teresa lovers Jacqueline ... Just wanted to say, I think you, your husband AND Caroline are the truest people on the show..
Larmar1 Finally, someone who thinks like I do!! Thank you God. I think after everything that Teresa has done and said about Jacqueline, what's the big deal about her mentioning the whole "botox" thing? Teresa is always bashing Jacqueline and everyone else, so there you go! Jacqueline I think you and your husband are the best. He truly is a GOOD man! Don't let anybody's comments ever get you down because God knows that you are a good person and you are trying to deal with the hand that has been dealt to you. BTW, I think you and Chris are doing a fantastic job with Nicholas. He is very, very lucky to have a wonderful mom and dad that care so much and would do anything to try and make their son's life a little easier. I loved the "botox" comment, it caught me completely off guard. I can only imagine what the rest of the season has in store for us. Everyone seems to be a little more uptight this season, especially Rosie! I love her because she truly is VERY REAL!! She does not care who she hurts, who gets angry, if it needs to be said, she will say it. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I always have you, Chris, CJ and of course Nicholas in my prayers. I hope you enjoy the summer, it seems like we are going to have a lot of humidity here in NJ. I for one do not like the summer (too hot and humid). I really look forward to the Fall because by then I am ready to shut off the A/C and welcome in the cool, dry weather and watch the beautiful change of foliage! God bless you always.
Love you guys!
Used to really like you but you have become one of the ugliest people on this show. Get over yourself and quit trying to trash Teresa for all of your short comings. Do you not realize that with every bash you do you just make people hate you and love Teresa all the more ??? You and that witch Melissa are two peas in a pod. It's really a shame considering you used to be one of the nicest people on the show but your hatred has changed you so much and not for the better.
Well said peggy!! I agree that her hatred of Teresa has really changed her. She used to be lovable, funny and seemed like such a good friend. Now she is just angry and sad.
"Jolene was actually very supportive and vented to me about how she felt hurt by Teresa as well." . I'm sure there was a lot of editing done, but I have to say, she didn't look very supportive, to me! Your trainer looked extremely uncomfortable during that scene.
They deserve each other then. She didn't say word one on camera, however. At least she has a brain.
This is now just sad. It worked for a while last year, ruining Teresa with her family's help, but while you thought Melissa coming on was like winning the lottery for your Teresa jealousy induced attack, it was actually your demise. We're on to it, and we see through the motivation. But now you guys can't stop---every friggin scene has to be a continued "make us hate Teresa" scene. It's now sad for you guys. She's out of your life, but the fact that we support her endeavors, and not yours is killing you!
Blah, blah, blah are your blogs. It's painfully obvious that you need to use Teresa drama to pull your own emotional issues out of yourself or to distract yourself from the real issues you have. This is not uncommon for ppl to do. There is therapy that can help.
I'm probably writing this on the wrong blog- but I had to say, when your baby said "I love you", I cried, my 7 & 8 year old sons cheered. :) Those are the moments to live for and talk about! Can we get less adult screen time and more kids?? Focus on the positives in your life, the more you do so, the more the negatives fade in the background.
this show needs a new cast! So sick of the repetitive comments. Jacqualines just bitter now, Caroline who I use to love is now a sour puss, the fight between Melissa and Teresa is so annoying to watch. Get over it its been a few years now.
I don't even get the point of this show anymore. we hardly see anyone but Tre, Joe, Melissa, and Jo. Since when did this show become about their family? I liked it better when it was about everyone and about trips you all took and less about fighting. It was hard to read your blog about how your trainer agreed with you....to be honest I watched and found she looked annoyed and didn't want to talk about Tre. she wanted you to focus and work out. It looked bad needless to say. I love you and Carolyn but please just drop it already. We know Tre is not perfect, I don't like her...but the horse is dead. LET IT GO.
Jacqueline - you are NOT funny. stop trying to be funny in your interviews. it's not working. you look like an idiot. you're embarrassing.
