Jacqueline Laurita

Jacqueline was thrilled to see so much emotion from Nick when she came back from her trip.

on Aug 19, 20130

Once I got home, my husband told me about Joe Gorga's plan for us all to go away with them for Melissa's birthday. I wasn't sure if she would like that idea so much, but my husband loved the idea about going on that trip together. He wanted us to get away together. I just got back from being away, so I wasn't thrilled about going away again. I was sure it would be fun, but it was for Melissa's Birthday AND my husband definitely deserved it, so we agreed to go.

Next week, Arizona! This is where we all start getting deep. Magic happens at the Miraval Spa. Stay tuned…

Please don't get anymore surgeries. You see something different in the mirror than we see. You are so pretty as you are. No more tweeking or you will change. My mom is 72 and just got a tummy tuck last year she is now having health issues since. She came out with clots in her lungs , shes passing out, she has too much to mention. All because my dad called her fat and cheated in the past. She doent have any wrinkles on her face naturally she is beautiful. She is like you not seeing the beauty in the mirror. Now I'm possibly going to lose my mom because of this. She knows it too. Please don't put your kids through it just to try to look like a barbie. I always thought you were one of the prettiest on all the housewives shows. Your husband thinks so too. God made us different dont try to be like someone else. You are hot girl. Please believe me. Show Ashley how to age gracefully and embrace it.

Didn't post a blog this week bc you knew everyone would get on your case of how you, AGAIN, twist everything out of context????  That karma comment seriously had nothing to do with you and Nick.  SO freaking sad that you made it out like it was!

Jaqueline, you taking Teresa's karma comment out of context clearly shows that YOU view your  son as a curse. First you made yourself look like a victim of Ashley and now Nick. No kid is perfect. You really need to stop feeling sorry for yourself and act like a parent instead of a victim.

Jacqueline, you are just too trusting for your own good.  Teresa is sick and twisted.  Of course she meant the nasty karma dig.  It was absolutely typical of her to claim to be nice to someone, but let her evil side take over.  Just stay away.  Enjoy your wonderful husband and beautiful children.  You are so lucky to have that sort of home life.  That is one thing Teresa is jealous of.  Just be cordial, but stay away from her as much as possible.  Karma is kicking her in the butt right now, and it will be ugly to watch..  By the way,  God bless you for being such a wonderful mother.

Team Nick.

I don't think Teresa meant what you think she did. Don't be so insecure. Italians believe that if you treat people unkind your children will be treated unkind...not be born with a disability, that's going too far. You and Caro also took it the wrong way at the reunion and screamed that Teresa was making it about her when all she said was that Nick was her daughters bf and its sad that they don't see each other anymore. Stop being so defensive and assuming the worse.

Teresa shared with you the thoughts that  she does not want to hurt others because she is concerned with karma coming back to her and / OR her kids.  That was a worry Teresa has. Why must you flip it and  imply that Teresa was pointing fingers at you and your family situation?    You managed to clean the slate in Arazona for about 3 minutes....

 

 You seem to keep getting in your own way of your personal growth.     You and Tre both have a lot on your plates mountains to climb help each other .  No body is perfect certainly not Teresa but Ii see you attacking her and her having to always defend herself.  Let it go grow up move on try positive thinking and being more genuine  than sarcastic.

You can keep changing the outside--but the inside will stay the same. The same insides that punched Caroline in the face. She took you down Jacqueline. Caroline  wanted Teresa ruined cuz her boys and family were sinking, and she used your weakness that's called jealousy to hurt the the break out star. Didn't work. Come on! The reasons for the turn on Teresa still don't make sense.

Jacqueline...you look beautiful...Stop the surgeries, cause you don't need anymore. If you continue you could end up like Mama Elsa fron the Housewives of Miami.

 

On a nicer note....your sons are beautiful....

It's obvious Nick loves his mommy very much! He sure got the I Love You down. I was happy to see CJ get his attention first; I'm sure there are times that he needs it.

Nick's face was the best part of this entire episode! Nothing else worth commenting on except Lauren's arrogance!

Jacqueline, you need to quit concentrating on fixing your outside and start working on your inside!  Get some therapy for your low self-esteem issues and personality conflicts.  You are the typical Dr. Jeckyl, Mr. Hyde personality.  Get some help!

Jackie,

I'm so glad you are getting over your crazy phase. Please lock that bitter person  up and don't let her out again! Just wondering, Was Melissa chirping in your ears constantly about Teresa?

I have no idea why people hate on you. I have no idea why people "love" reality stars either, but you seem normal to me. You've had a lot of surgeries that suggests you're not happy with yourself, but not many people are. Best regards to you and Nicholas.

Best moment was Nick seeing you after being gone-sweet !

That scene brought tears to my eyes.  I remember when you were crying becuse you did not know if you would ever hear him say the words "I love you" again.  Your hard work and faith paid off.  He said it for all of us to hear.  It was an intimate family moment that we were blessed to share with you.  God bless you, your wonderful husband and  those beutiful boys.   Also your daughter.  What a joy she has turned out to be.  See?......good things come to good people.

Going away for a procedure that was purely for vanity & that could have cost you your life was unbelievable! How could you put your husband & little boys through that! That just shows how little respect you have for others which is exactly what Teresa was so hurt over! I hope you will show your family now how much more important they are to you than your looks! And I hope you will truly be a friend to Teresa, especially now when she needs the greatest support from all her family & friends!!!

Nicholas seems really communicative and not off in his own world at all. The therapy that you're using must be doing wonders. Good luck to your family.

I think when you got home, and held the child that needed you so much, you realized that going away for unnecessary procedures was wrong.  You just couldn't see it before because of all the craziness in you life!

Jacqueline,  I think you are funny and compassionate person.  What you saw in Teresa is beyond me, but anyway,  best advice stay away from her. She is a user.

Jacqueline,

 

Your whole family is precious. You are so blessed to have a loving and supportive husband, sons who adore you, and Ashley seems to be back on track as well. I am worried about your friendship with Teresa, I'm not sure she can live up to your expecations of what friendship is. Although I wish you guys could mend the friendship and move forward, I feel you being disappointed is eminent. Stay guarded. Best of Luck...

 @Grammy-509 We all live for our kids, what are you talking about?!  What Jack does is no different than what any other REAL MOTHER would do.  I take my 5 year old son to park, the movies, we play games together, I help him with his homework, we go shopping together, I support him at all of his sports games, we have play dates, we have "fun time" at his grandparent's home, we read and pray together every night, I teach him manners, etc.  I also have an older son, with whom I've done the same things with, now he's in college.  Is that anything out of the norm, or does it make me one of the "BEST Mothers out there?  No disrespect, but I thought taking care of our children and doing great things with them, even if it is something extra, is what all of mothers are suppose to do.  Sorry, but I didn't know Jac was any different....

 @Missmarch GAAAAAAAA! I love to read these crazy posts. Lovers, haters, wrath of furries, can't string two sentences together, crazy, hilarious posts. But I am sorry, Missmarch. You have crossed the line into MADNESS! MADNESS I SAY!

 @shysharon You're right. It looked like she stunned him pretty bad. She's been with him a long time and during that time I think he had the upper hand and took her for granted. She didn't think she could do any better. She's gotten some self esteem with her weight loss and realizes there are other guys out there and she wants to really fall in love. Can't fault her for that. Hey, better she dumps him now than 10 years and 3 kids later. Cruel to be kind, baby.

 @dwaters1952@yahoo.com that's not really fair;  this society judges women on their trim figures and beauty; sad but too true.  So, nothing wrong with a nip and tuck if you can afford it to stay marketable; million of us would also if we could afford it.       Besides, your girl Teresa has had ALOT of 'work done' also.

 @karenmom I agree with some of what you say, but you are assuming a lot here! How do you know he took her for granted and how do you know she can do better and why did she have to be cruel? She sold out for the camera, she may be passing up a really nice, who was good to her and always had her back through thick or 'thin' and maybe she won't 'get' anyone better!

 @needmorezoni  @Missmarch  @karenmom My "Madness, Madness I say" was from Pheobe on Friends! HAHAHA Danielle was just so damaged and painful to watch. But you're right. The show needs a rehaul.

Missmarch

 @needmorezoni  @karenmom I'll agree DS is disturbed, but they need someone like her to give it some oomph.  All of these people are so played out.  They are completely delusional.  Seeing the kids, even the older ones, is like watching a slow motion trainwreck.  At this point, the only reason I watch is because it gives me something to talk about with my mom.  She despises them all!

 @Missmarch  @karenmom

 Bored indeed. I've been saying for two seasons now that this show needs an enema. I would love to see a recast. I think the Gorgas and Wakiles worked RHONJ into a tired repetitive pattern and basically ruined this show. I don't want to see them. Danielle, I don't think is a healthy person and she should probably stay away from these shows.

 

My original madness madness quote is from a ska band The Specials. ;)

 @needmorezoni  @karenmom Aren't you bored with this bunch, yet!  It's not madness; it would be genius!  How many fake cheating, lying, hysterics, parties can we put up with?  I say bring back the crazy.  It's the only way to go.  Teresa and Joe are so boring, and this dynamic is what's this show is based on?  Please, I say it's high time Danielle returns, if she hasn't od'd in same back alley of Scores.  She's make a great team with Rosie!

 OK, I'd have to watch it again to see why I thought she was cruel, but when people say he wants to sit on the couch and I want more, it's a real put down. He and his family run a business and probably do pretty well, fresh mozz and other Itialian food in NJ? I'm sure they eat well and want some down time, and not always be ''on''. Also, I think she should have done this off camera, not nice.

karenmom

 @shysharon Maybe everything you say is spot on. We don't really know. But chances are, we've either been in her place or know someone who has been. Remember the scenes with them from the first seasons? There didn't seem to be a spark just a "well, we've been together a long time" vibe. She commented that they were like old marrieds and he wanted to just sit on the couch. She wants more. They both deserve more. Did you really think she was cruel? I thought she was mature and didn't seem to want to hurt him. If he's not the one, why should she string him on?
