Jacqueline Laurita

Jacqueline was surprised to hear some of the things Teresa's friend had to say about her.

on Jun 16, 20130

Let's talk about the gym fiasco, because that whole thing sounded so ridiculous to me. You'll have to pardon me, because I had no idea there was a stake claimed on one side of the sand box and that I wasn't allowed to cross the line into the other territory or someone would tell on me. Honestly, I had absolutely no motives for going to the gym other than I wanted to meet the girls for a smoothie, catch up, and practice driving on highways (fear of mine). I was invited by Melissa and it fit into my schedule. End of story.


Melissa wanted me to start getting my "sexy" back by first getting me to work out more often. The smoothie and girl chat seemed much more appealing to me than the work out. I don't like squeezing my ass in front of people while I work out. I prefer my privacy when I work out. Last, I knew Teresa worked out at that gym at 6:00 in the morning. I went there after dropping my kids off at school, much later than I remembered Teresa ever going. In the scene with her and Kim, I even heard Teresa say to Kim that she had already worked out that day. I never thought for a second I would run into her there. Even if I did, I wouldn't have cared. At this point in time, she was just somebody that I used to know. As you could see, we were clearly there at separate times. In my opinion, Teresa's friend, Linda, instigated a problem when there clearly wasn't one to begin with.

Theresa is a nutters and you are well rid of her crazy-making behavior and false accusations. She accuses others of what she is doing herself.  Hang in there. Cutting crazy out of your life and focusing on that beautiful boy of yours is wonderful.

Your true colors are coming out. You are a trouble maker. The hate you have for Teresa is very obvious. Leave the show and get some help. I can't watch you anymore. I fast forward when you are on.

Jacqueline, keep up the great work with Nicholas, he is truly a beautiful boy.  He looks just like his dad.  It is a difficult road ahead, but God has chosen you and Chris to love this beautiful boy. Ignore all the negativity and continue to focus on what matters.

New Jersey Housewives r my abs fav, mayb its cuz i live in pa or just cuz I can relate to u guys, but seeing things from a neutral persceptive, u owe Teresa nuttin..!!!!! U were such a great friend & confidant to her & that whole "well maybe someones trying to set me up, maybe its you" comment, totally sent ur relationship down the drain.. So she really shouldnt think shes owed an apology cuz U R OWED THE APOLOGY, but I know it wont change a thing... The whole linda comments about the gym were totally uncalled for.. Being a parent myself, Thats your 1st priority not worrying about how many times u went to the gym this week.. Really??? Can they be anymore shallow??? ur such a great person & a great role model for ur dedication to nicholas, who really cares about the rest of the garbage... the person u r now is such a better person then u used to be, u found ur voice and confidence wit this group... Thanks for being such an inspiration for the rest of us...

Love what you are doing with Nick. I just finished a new book "The Spark" by Kristine Barnett.  It was so interesting and a real page turner.   It was about a child with severe autisim.  It was acutally a great read,  If you haven't gotten it already you'll love it.

Jacqueline, good job on what you wrote to Linda in your blog!

Jacqueline I admire your dedication to your son. You do owe Teresa an apology. You have gone after her and said things that she said to you in confidence. The fact that you can just push a side a 10+ year friendship speaks to your character. I truly believe you know Teresa didn't set Melissa up. Just come clean!

You, re so great Jacqueline!!!!

I love the way you handle the whole situation with your son, you are a great mom!!!!

Please don´t go back to the hatefulness that is known as Teresa Giudice, she doesn´t wish well for anyone much less her friends and family. And ignore the comments from people like Linda, KimD and Teresa, you are the beautiful one out of those three and none of them should talk at all if you know what I mean.

You need to stop being so anger at Teresa. Forgiveness is the key. I don't like what you have turned into.

Jacqueline you are amazing and some of these comments are insane!!! I find it hard to believe that people who have watched the show "from the beginning" have no idea what went on with you and Teresa. Maybe they need to watch again!!! There are so many thing's that were said and done, but like you said "it is what it is". Teresa will never change and she will continue to be cheated on by Joe and be in denial of the whole thing.I don't blame you one bit for saying anything you have about her. It sure is ok for her to do it to you. Yes 2 wrong's don't make a right but all is fair in love and war..? Anyway, I love my New Jersey girls! (- teresa).. Stay strong and keep smiling!!!

So many of us admire you and are proud of how you conduct yourself and how beautiful your family is.  Keep well away from the toxic Teresa she only brings negativity and problems wherever she goes.  Keep on with your journey to positivity and seeing your beautiful boy Nicholas amaze you every day

Jacqueline, I have always felt you are one of the more "real" members of the real housewives.  I hope your dear son, Nicholas will continue to improve.  I wonder if some of your doctors, or some of your investigation has included the dangers of sugar for some children.  I know my younger daughter was especially sensitive to sugar.  I just notice that Nicholas if being rewarded with lollipops.  If they are sugar free, they could have dangerous chemicals in them.  If they are not sugar-free, the processed sugar is surely very bad for Nicholas, or any young child, for that matter.  I know it has to be so challenging, and that you've been through a lot, but please don't get Nicholas anymore "hooked" on processed treats, but try to give him substitutes such as organic fruit.

 

By the way, I don't think anyone should try to "guilt trip" you over your relationship with Teresa.  I know the drama sells, but I personally am so turned off by Teresa's attitude.  I do see that she loves her parents, and have compassion for her, but I think probably many of the housewives have narcissistic tendencies.  However, it looks as though Teresa and Melissa will learn to get along?  I don't think you or Kathy deserve to be "snubbed."  Teresa was angry when Melissa and Kathy came on the show, because no one, apparently, "ran it by her."  Oh well, she can get over it.  Life, death, birth and illness help put it all into perspective, help us to see how petty a lot of the arguments are.  That being said, I know, personally, that it really hurts when someone, once a friend, becomes estranged, and communication is cut off.

Jacqueline - it was an indication of good mental health to draw a boundary and and exorcise  Theresa from your life.  She is nothing but toxic.

Jacqueline...you are my favorite NJ housewife and I think you are a great friend and mommy! No matter what people say, or what drama has arisen on the show, I think you are great. 

 

You are doing a great job with Nicholas. I have cried each time he has been on this season thus far. When Chris surprised you with Nicholas saying "Mommy, I love you!" melted my heart (in a very good way). Your happiness most definitely rubbed off on me. Seeing his willingness on getting into the HBOT was amazing! He seems like such an incredible little boy. You are blessed!

 

I have a cousin with Autism, and he is 8. He was once very non-social and regressed just as Nicholas did with talking. Now, although still shy in social situations, he has come a long way. I have hope for Nicholas, especially with the help of a Mom and Dad as hands-on as you and Chris are.  Really, god bless your family.

 

Now...onto the episode. I don't think you should ever apologize to Teresa. She blames you for breaking up her family which I think is such a harsh, and rude speculation to make of someone. Yes, you did speak your mind...but she's had problems with her family for the past 10 years...and you were not in the picture then. 

 

I think you are doing a great job laughing her nonsense off and putting YOUR family first. And like I said, you are doing an amazing job!!

You are amazing. My baby brother has autism and i wanted to jump into the tv and punch Linda in the face for making those nasty comments about you and for teresa just sitting there and letting them laugh. You are a beautiful person with a heart of gold. keep on focusing on your family <3

Jacqueline lets get real for a minute! First off you said a lot of pretty sh*tty things to say about Teresa, her family, her marriage, her intelligence!  All I ever heard come out of Teresa's mouth is how much she loved you and your friendship! You spoke about her bankruptcy! but you forgot to tell us about your own?! Thats convenient... You accused her of setting up Melissa at the Posche fashion show! which is why she didn't speak to her brother for a year! I'm not saying that its your fault she didn't speak to her brother, but you sure got the ball rolling....  I have watched this show since the beginning and Teresa always had your back! I can't say the same for you! 

ShaneeceDixon

Jacqueline, I'm so happy and beyond elated to hear Nicholas is responding so well to the various treatments you're giving him. I think it's amazing how you have used the show as a platform to help other mothers who are also struggling with autistic children. The "I love you" surprise was probably the most touching moments in all of the Real Housewives' series, PERIOD. God bless you and your family. 

 

However, I must agree with the other viewers when it comes to you and Teresa. True, you guys had a longtime friendship and were very close. True, Teresa should have probably said something to her personal friends about her fears of Joe going to jail and the family's financial woes, rather than telling it all to a tabloid magazine. And true, obviously the Gorga/Giudice issues originated before the Gorgas and Wakiles ever came on the show.  

 

But Teresa didn't deserve that attack on the patio with you and Caroline. And what happened to distancing yourself from the family? You said it then, yet you were still in the middle of it all.  She didn't deserve you airing out more family drama on national TV. 

 

And as for the texts you received from you and Teresa's mutual friend about the Posche Fashion Show setup against Melissa, you SHOULD have pulled Melissa aside and showed her the texts yourself, or not said anything. There was no merit in you sharing that text with Caroline and Lauren. Or better yet, don't say anything. Because you putting that out there just worsened the situation. Teresa is no angel by any means, but neither are you. You BOTH need to apologize. As much as you said you cared about Teresa, I couldn't tell by the nastiness spewing between the two of you. 

 

I hope you two truly mended the broken fences because watching you unravel into this mean-spirited person last season was not easy to watch. I hope you can get the healing you need too. 

 

SN: Was that comment about you and Teresa still going to the same doctor for cosmetic procedures ANOTHER read against Teresa? Hmm...

Jacqueline, I wish you and your family the best.  You are courageous in showing the stresses of having a child with autism.  I believe you will do well with Nicholas because of your dedication and persistence.

 

I feel that the stresses that you have in your life have changed you.  I try to understand why you and Teresa ended your relationship after 12 years of friendship.  It doesn't add up to me.  It seems as though you switched sides, and are now on team melissa.  I am sorry, but something doesn't add up with her and Joey.  I feel that they do not take ownership in any of the relationship issues that they have had with Teresa.  Sorry I do not buy that Teresa is responsible for all of their problems.  My gut tells me that Melissa's true colors will be shown this season.  Just to set the record straight, I do not dislike Melissa.  I do feel. however that she stirs the pot and that she plays the victim too many times.  Whether she likes it or not, she does come across as jealous of Teresa's success outside of the show.  It is obvious she is trying to establish a successful career outside of the show.  

 

I wish that you and Caroline would both look at your behavior with Teresa.  Neither of you have perfect families.  Your family has been on the air since the beginning of the series and there were times that there were issues within your family.  How would you like it if Teresa aired your fight with Dina and Caroline's fight with Dina on the show.  I feel like you guys are being hypocrites.   You are calling her a mean girl because she has had some issues with Melissa.  Melissa isn't being sincere when she talks about Teresa.  I think Melissa is spoiled and probably was used to getting her way as the baby of her family.   Teresa not catering to her is making her mad.  Teresa isn't perfect by any means, but she is who she has always been.  I don't get why that is such a problem all of a sudden for you.  How would you like it if Dina was back on the show and her and Teresa got together and talked about you and what you did wrong?  I don't think you would like it.  All of you ganging up on Teresa is pretty mean girl spirited if you ask me.  I know you are overwhelmed with stress taking care of your family but I really hope that the Jacqueline from two season's ago comes back.  She was fun to watch.

It is so nice to see the real Jac back! Nicholas is a living doll and we all want him to become the best Nicholas he can. As for not owning Teresa an apology...your ambush on your patio and the way you trash not just Teresa but her family at the last reunion - you owe her a big apology. Guess you will be stalking and trashing her the rest of this season too. Like I said, it is so nice to see the real Jac back.

I happened to run across informaiton on treatment being used for children with Autism - it is called Applied Behavior Analysis - just another tool - best wishes to you and your family - you are an angel.

I am truly impressed and touched by your commitment to helping your son.  It is obviously very painful for you and your family -- but you have an amazing support group.  Be good to yourself and I look forward to future progress with your son.

You are a class act. The love you show for your family is evident. The time you devote to the care of your son shows what a strong, determined women you are. I admire your strength. Don't let the negative people ever get you down. You are a sensitive caring person so I know it hurts when some talks behind  your back. Thersa's life is a wreak. She has sold her soul for the money. Anyone who would stay married to that poor excuse of a man has no self respect.  I love watching your family.

I am just so amazed at how you women on NJHW all want to blame Theresa for everything !!! Yet you all act like backstabbing people who are just as evil as you blame Theresa for being. You all need to take a good look in the mirror at yourselves, and maybe need to learn the meaning of "kindness."

First Jacqueline, I have to say something to everyone else..."Hey Haters, GO SCRATCH!" Now that I have that out of the way, I love seeing you and your family on the show. You guys are so genuine and loving. It is so clear that Chris adores you and visa versa. It so touched me when Chris got Nicholas to say I love you. I pray for him and your family. You are doing an amazing thing bringing this to the awareness of the public on a greater scale. Letting America see your family actively working on the struggles for an autistic child, bringing new treatments to light and seeing the disappointments as well as the triumphs is nothing short of a heartfelt gift you give to the world. Thank you for that. You truly are an inspiration. Please keep Teresa and the thoughts of her waaaay in the back of your mind...collecting cob webs. She has hurt you enough and doesn't deserve your friendship. She never takes any responsibility for any of her actions and thinks she is right about everything. But you know that already...LOL. Enjoy your family and concentrate on them. Much love and God Bless!

it is great to see you and Chris help your son. Bringing awareness to autism is wonderful. Now please stop all this bickering with Teresa. You, Melissa and Kathy talking about the other ladies does not help matters. Just focus on positive things for your family.  A year of this other garbage is enough.

Props to you Ms. Jacqueline for doing all that you can for your son. I too have a son who is on the spectrum. I also went through all the emotional ups and downs early on when he was first diagnosed. Early intervention is so important. My son began school at 3 and will begin 1st grade in the fall. He is in full inclusion and continues speech therapy. Always look at your child's potential and have a sense of humor. You will need it to get yourself through the next few years. Stay positive and don't overwhelm yourself with all of the diets or medications. He will be teaching you before you know it!

I see a person who out of spite or jealousy went out of her way to completely attack a former best friend  I think you need to do some serious soul searching.  Theresa never did anything directly to you but you did and said A LOT to try and hurt her. You do owe her an apology.I think you seem like a very mean spirited person.

I'm not sure why you are on the show this season, you have family issues to deal with and should give it your 100% attention instead of gossiping about teresa every second.  I also hope you slow down on your drinking because on the last season we hardly ever saw you without your wine.  You really should stop listening to caroline and think for yourself because she will only bring you more grief because she is liar and a troublemaker.  You believe caroline all the time and if you would only watch the show you would see the drama and lies that spew out of her.  She is nosy and now you are as well...focus on the kiddos and things would be so much more nicer for you.

Jacqueline, your hubby is a class act.  The only thing that bothers me about you is when you pretend to be sleeping.  It comes across childish and cowardly.  I wouldn't do that anymore if I were you. xoxo

I enjoy watching you and your family on TV.  I actually cried when Chris got Nicholas to say "I love you".  The relationship that you and Chris share is in stark contrast to the one the Theresa and her husband have.  I can't imagine Chris telling you to shut up or call you the "C" word.  You are wise to avoid Theresa and her band of toxic friends.

 her behavior towards Teresa is disgusting. She has turned into a mini Caroline...just what the world doesnt need.  The way she set up tre last season and went against her was vile...She will NEVER BE HAPPY...friends like her are empty and lonley...have fun watching Teresa succeed..Jaq who??

come on Jacqueline.  If you are going to stay out of Teresa's drama stay out of it.  Why would you tell Joe that "according to Teresa I'm the reason for all of your problems".   That's so lame and not true.   You just like to wallow in this...you really need therapy.  I'd get some.

I loved Jacqueline..until the reunion..I thought she was sincere and honest and silly..I do believe she was pushed by her own family I.e. Caroline to go after Theresa..I was never a Theresa fan and still see she has faults..but I know this if I had a friend that I confided in about my husband cheating and she went on national tv and told the world..after seeing my little girl worried about just that..I would never trust her I would not think she gave a sh!$ about my children and I would move on..and also to tell all those woman which she clearly did as they smirked from the opening credits on..what does that say about you as a person..? Really what did Theresa actually do to Jaqueline to deserve that? Not call her and break down the questions and how she answered them when she was in a magazine?

bravofan5828

 @greeniiii73 Yeah but now we know the real Jacqueline!  See hits on Tresa each time she wants to have T.V time... remember her bringing up the bankruptcy... Joe being arrested... etc.. this was all Jacqueline calling Tresa out... regardless, A friend is someone you should be able to count on not to sell you out.   She should make it clear from the start.  Now that I am on the show Tresa I am not a friend to you.  Everything goes and I will out you on anything that works to give me screen time.  Then I would have respect for her.. She than would be free to do what ever she wanted.  But not while she was pretending to be as close or closer than a sister.

 Jacqueline,  I admire you so much with the way you are so dedicated to Nicolas.  I love the way you and your hubby love each other. I only wish your family the best.                                                                       BUT my friend, their was a set-up at the Poshe party.  Why were you always on your cell>  Kim set up Tre.  I think a lot of others did too.  Watching the episode over and over.  Teresa was the one set up.  She was obviously so upset about the whole situation from having her make-up done to the end of the party.  She NEVER would have done to you...what you did to her.    Something always goes bad at the Poshe show...   Melissa took it in stride and lied her way out of everything.  Poor Melissa.     I really' liked her when she came on the show.    BUT THINK ABOUT IT...WHY DID SHE COME ON THE SHOW????     Why was Teresa so upset and not Melissa?  Oh I am sure she said  to herself..I can get more pity and Teresa more problems.  Teresa always was a true freind to you.  She always had your back.  Shame on you.

 @piperbeau/When has Teresa had Jacquelines back. I certainly can't recall. She never was there when she was having trouble with Ashlee. She only relayed the messages about who set up Melissa.. That actually came from Kris D and that slimey man. Lets face it, Teresa doesn't like JOE being married to Melissa and will do anything to break it up. In reality, Teresa does not show much intelligence but that isn't Jacquelines fault or Melissa fault. Teresa needed special help but never got it.

 That is so true, Teresa always had Jacqueline's back.  Jacqueline stirred the pot at the fashion show last year and then Caroline put in in her big stick to make sure Teresa got blamed.  Their anger at the Reunion was because the viewers didn't fall for the BS no matter how hard they tried to convince us!

 I believe that too.  How can anyone that watched that show see how nervous  and upset Teresa was?  Why were you on that phone so much and Carline too?  What kind of a friend wouldn't shut it off and help their good friend???  Teresa would not have done that to you.  Go Melissa...Keep trying to have everyone fooled with a sweet tone.  poor me and all along tell all of Tre's friends all kind of B.S to turn them against her.  It breaks my heart to see how she has manipulate everyone.  Joey is going to see how she is and start following her twitter....Thank You Jesus.
