You can really tell that Jacqueline is really struggling. She isn't crazy, she is just doing everything she can to keep it all together. Frayed around the edges.
This episode made me giggle. I remember the frustrations I felt at the time, because for so long Teresa had been out of sight, out of mind. Then all of a sudden her name kept popping up everywhere around me, and everyone kept talking about her and their family issues. Maybe it was because all of a sudden we were all together again. But who knows. I will try to take you back to how I was feeling at the time.
It just seemed odd to me that, miraculously, Teresa wanted to make an effort to resolve everything with her family, after I had been trying to make that happen for two years prior! Why now? I wasn't buying into the sincerity of it all. At the time, I felt like it was all for show and not for real. On top of that, I was getting increasingly annoyed, because I heard that Teresa kept talking about me behind my back saying I was stalking her at "her" gym and blaming me for all of her family fighting. It annoyed me so much, because I knew that I had done so much to try to bring her family back together, and not only was it not appreciated, I somehow became the a--hole, and I felt like Teresa wasn't taking any accountability for any of her own actions to cause the rift in her family.
When I heard Teresa on the phone say, out of her own mouth, that it was my fault she and her family were fighting, I couldn't hold back anymore. I grabbed the phone from Kathy and asked Teresa to stop saying that to everyone and to take some accountability for her part in that mess. It escalated pretty quickly from there.

This is crazy. You are all stupid - ALL OF YOU. You all have stabbed each other at one point or another. If you all STOP and LOOK back at the ACTUAL REASON as to HOW and WHY all of this started - IT WOULD BE MEANINGLESS AND ACTUALLY PISHPOSH, There are bigger problems in this world, than listening to what that person said, then your friend said it that she heard it from another friend, after a cousin of a friend heard it from another friend. If you all keep at it - it is going to become a cycle of ABSURDITY that is sounding MORE LUDICROUS every time I watch the show. You all love to say Oh well I decided to be a bigger person and apologized or walked away - BUT YOU ALL SOMEHOW MANAGE TO GET BACK TO SQUARE ONE. ENOUGH - the drama is overrated. Just FORGET IT! You on the other hand say that you don't care about Teresa, but somehow you end up talking about her and it is the same old thing. Forget her, the rift between you and Teresa should have ended long ago - but it is just that you both are just harboring blame and sheltering old wounds that don't even exist anymore. LET GO and LET LOVE!
You are a lucky woman. You have a husband that respect you, adore you, protect you, a gorgeous daughter, and two handsome sweet little boys. A house that I will die to have. You are healthy, beautiful. Don't you think that those are enough reasons for this evil woman to hurt you? She was never your friend, she envy you all this time. Now, just focus in your family, your beautiful family and people that really care about you and your kids. Stay focus in your daughter, remember she still young and need you. Luv, me
I can't even watch you ~ I feel like you're on the edge about to jump. You're so obsessed with Teresa. You should just have it out with her and make up. You're all to blame, for all the hurt feeling. Teresa is really too stupid to realize what she has done to everyone, and what everyone has done to her..... Go for a walk, take a deep breath. Get out of the house. You will be fine ~ ps. please stop and think - you're acting crazy, outburst, I'm afraid that you'll lose the most important person that you really need right now....your husband.
You go girl! Now, time to let go of all the crap with Teresa. It's not worth your time and she will never take responsibility for what she does. She's hell-bent on blaming you so let her....she can tell herself whatever she needs to in order to get through the day and feel good about herself, but you really should just ignore her....the people that are your friends aren't paying any attention to what she's saying.....Ignoring that someone exists is the best revenge!
I had a problem with my hip-joint back in 2010 and since then I was able to recover without getting a new hip joint from the hospital. I believe that in another 3 years I can be fully recovered, I still have some limitations, but before I could not sit or walk, it was impossible ... completely. Since then I have climbed El-Capitan in Yosemite with my son Joshua. I wanted to tell you a little about what I have learned, I have studied heath a lot. Have you considered Chelation? I would strongly suggest it. It was used in the 2nd world war to take heavy metals out of painters on our battle ships. There is not some silly speculation about it, but has been proved harmless. A good book on it is "A textbook on EDTA Chelation Therapy." There are heavy metals in the shots children receive in school, and you can legally refuse them if you see a lawyer. Please look into Chelation, and the truth about heavy metals in vaccinations, I believe your answer is there. Praying for you and your son.
WOW you go and run with that phone Jacqueline, after all the help you tried to give her pmhummph She is sooo twisted and its like SAY YOUR SORRY, Teresa!! I guess it was just easier for her to turn it all around and blame you:/ it shows were she is at. To deny it all on , and lOOk like a fool infront of all us normal people smh <coookoooo> No wonder your mad, frustrated, and hurt, you honestly wanted to get her fmly 2gether. ~ It just kind of buggs me that Kathy doesn't understand Y u took her phone, but I would have done the same. Teresa has a was of making ppl feel a little crazzzy. Don't worry about it ~ Everyone has their limit. Keep being you Jaqueline xoxo
The first season you reflected such a kind and sincere heart. You stuck up for the underdog and for integrity. You didn't swear or yell. I like that Jacqueline, and I believe she is still in you. Don't let this show change your goodness--take care!
Lol ! You are awesome. You not only have dignity, but I am so happy finally somebody don't give a f$@&k about Teresa. I love you!!!
Always loved you best. But please forget Teresa and Melissa. Their lies will catch up with them s they're catching up with Melissa. You're family are lucky to have you. Focus on them; they're your gift from God. An Jac, I really truly do think yiu have a good heart. These women you're dealing with are jealous evil-doers. Keep your distance from them.
Glad you seized the opportunity to catch her lying and call her out on it. Glad to see you owning that you took it too far. Best for you and Caroline to enjoy your new friends and just stay away from Joe and Teresa. Teresa will never own up to anything being her fault or let the past stay in the past.
I am not even sure where to start. I used to love Jacqueline on the show, but this season and last one, we are getting to see a different side of you. You do say that you are over Teresa, but your actions are definitely saying something else. You can't seem to say a sentence without bringing up Teresa's name, even if it it is just to say how you are over it with her. Just LET IT GO!!! I don't know what you have to do to make that happen. You have so much to worry about and not to let an issue with Teresa bring the worst out of you. You seem to be have anxiety at the mention of her name, and go from 0 to 100 in a matter of minutes. I hope watching yourself this season helps you understand how your actions have been because sometimes you need to take a step out of yourself to see exactly what others see. Maybe you need to see a therapist with Teresa, even if you don't want to work things out, but just to get things off your chest because you seem like you need to.
I wish you the best with your son. You are doing an amazing job and educating a lot of people about autism. Channel the strength you have into things about your family.
Jacqueline i have to say i think you were right not to go on the retreat with all of them. i know how stressful it is to work daily with a child who has atusim or any other form of disablity. i work in the field plus have to kids with disablitys it takes a lot of you mentally. so i think you are doing the right thing on focusing on nick and your family. you have a long road ahead of you and i will hold you in my prayers. but don't waste your time on Teresa
nic will thrive i can see it already.. keep up what your doing.. and you have an amazing husband to work so hard on getting him to tell you i love you mommy.. that brought tears to my eyes.
Jacqueline, I think you are deply hurt by teresa, it is just natural because you really were a friend to her, but you have to let her go, she can't be a friend to anyone she is a miserable human being, forgive an let her go!!! This will be the best for you and your sanity.
God Bless you and keep you. You are going through a great deal, please take a break and give that wonderful husband and sons the time they need with you. You are too good of a person to lower yourself to all the ugliness that is surronding you and I believe you are being taken advantage of by the wrong people (Melissa). My heart breaks for you, but I am so happy to see what a wonderful, adoring husband you have and I know you will pull through, but give yourself some breathing room away from a source of evil, Melissa, she is draining you.
May God Bless you and your family.
Jacqueline, you should be going on this retreat as well. You are still mad and hurt that Teresa did to you. With all the hate and being pissed, can harbor illness. You need to focus on family and not Teresa.
I really like you. You have always been one of my favorite housewives because you were always a peace keeper and never believed the worst of anyone. I know you have been given more than your share of problems with your son's diagnosis and I wish you the best of luck with him. As a nurse, what I see of him is not as bad as most children. He likes to be hugged whereas most children with his diagnosis do not like being touched. But I worry about your mental health right now. Your mood swings are getting out of hand and you react move violently to things that never bothered you before. Have you ever thought of seeing a doctor? The stress you are under right now might warrant a little prescription therapy at this time in your life.
I laughed at you when you grabbed the phone I thought it was very funny..
You have it right though, she'd be the last person I would even entertain being a part of my life she's not worth it....
Love your need to explain your side of what happened at the boutique! We saw what you did and what you said and how uncomfortable you made everyone in there feel. Viewers are not stupid nor do they buy 99% of your silly excuses for your behavior. Grow up, shut up and move on with your life.
WOW...you act SO superior over Teresa saying she is crazy and what not...do you realize how fricken insane you act???? you did throw Teresa under the bus and that is what started the insanity for her and her brother. You need to take a long hard look at yourself and get some therapy!!!
Teresa is so ugly inside and out so is her friend kimd-- whatever! But really God creates good and evil next each other. Don't let her satisfy with blowing up each other's face like she desires from you and everyone. You have a wonderful husband and family, really you don't deserve this show. You deserve more than that!
I hope you get help with your mental and emotional health for the sake of your family. I remember you turned on Teresa and made her a target of many frustrations, That apparently has not changed. I wish you the best and congratulate you on your son's progress. You are a true blessing to him.
Jacqueline honey, please don't do this show anymore for your own sake. This is non-sense! Don't you think? You have a beautiful family that loves you! And stop listening to Caroline. She has just as many issues as Teresa.
Jacqueline no excuse for your behavior. You went ballistic and Teresa was not calling u. U had no business taking the phone away from Kat. You're a sneaky troublemaker. You Heath, sleep, eat and live thinking of Teresa. Shame on you!
Sorry Jacquelin but you were way out of hand. You when ballistic. Teresa was not calling u. You're a smooth sneaky troublemaker.
Jacqueline, the best way to deal with Teresa is to NOT deal with her. She will only cause you distress. She is twisted in a sick way. That type person tends to drag everyone into their crazy zone. Just ignore her. Refuse to interact with her in any way. She simpy does not care that she has destroyed her own family, and will "infect" yours if you allow it.
Jacqueline: First I want to say how much I love your presence on the show and for showing the world what it's like to raise a child with autism. It's been a real education for me, since I never really understood what it was. Way to go! Nick is a beautiful ll boy and I'm praying for your family as you continue to explore ways to help him.
The Teresa phone call was funny. I wish there was a camera on Teresa's side showing us how she was behaving . You both got out of control, but I think I understand a lil bit why you reacted the way you did. Girlfriend you had a one sided friendship. Teresa wasn't a supportive caring friend for you. she didn't ask about how you were doing or how things were going on your side. Everytihng was all about her, and you listened and tried to be a supportive friend. There was a lot of special rules and pressure to being Teresa's friend. You had to hate whomever she disliked. Just like that "soldier" type friend you speak of. But at the same time, this rule didn't apply to her. If you didn't like someone or fell-out with a friend or family member, it was perfectly fine for her to stay friends with that person. It's some 8th grade kiddy type crap, but there it is. This is what she expected from her friends, otherwise, she didnt' consider you to be a "loyal" friend, but that loyalty was also one sided. I think you looked over all this stuff and loved her regardless trying to hold on to your friendship. The breaking point seemed to be where she started blaming you for any of the issues she was having with her brother. Teresa is the deflect/denial Queen. I guess is, you snapped on the phone with her because you are no longer going to take any of her B.S. You're not trying to be a loyal soldier friend to Teresa. You're not letting her get away with B.S anymore, since you come to realize this to be a toxic friendship. Good for you!
I have always loved Jacqueline and still do. However, I think maybe she needs to take a step back from this show. She has so much going on in her personal life that this situation with Teresa is just making things worse for her and she is kind of beginning to look a little nuts. That happens to the best of us but we can't see it until we are removed from the situation and able to gain a fresh perspective. Things will only get worse if she doesn't try to focus on just her personal life. Again I'm saying, I love Jacqueline I just think she needs to take a step back and see if this show really is healthy for her right now.
Nobody should blame you for a anything & ppl shoud have a bit more understanding towards you knowing what you guys are going through with your sons condition. I bet Theresa would be the last thing on your mind having more private problems to deal with & think about. I get it, a person can only take so much & when you are dealing with issues which really matter more than drama then that's frustrating & the frustration sooner or later always shows in some way form or fashion. You have the right to defend yourself & stick up for yourself, so I think that many would've spoke up & let Theresa know that you were listening & that you didn't appreciate her pulling you in this again & blaming you for the downfall of their family. The family was messed up way before all of this & if anyone is to blame then it's the ppl directly involved. You did your best as a friend & got burned. Happens all the time & if you weren't a good friend then you wouldn't have gotten involved in this mess in the first place. Don't care what anyone says, but you are not at fault & you just did your part as a caring friend. Too bad it wasn't two sided, but you live & learn & become a better you for yourself & your family. You got a lot on your plate as it is & I take my hat off to you & your family. You've had a rough time before & now as well. My thoughts & prayers go out to you & the family. May nothing but the best happen to you guys in the future, everyone deserves that. Life isn't easy for anyone & some have it harder than others. But don't let the drama get ya & continue to only focus on the happiness in your life. Xoxo
Jaqueline, I think you have a good heart. And you try to fix things. My advice would be that you dont get into this at all! Teresa has her problems, its not your fault. It obviously effects you negatively and you have other things to do.
All you Teresa fans criticizing Jacqueline and calling her crazy.... REALLY? You say Jacqueline is crazy? Oh but how easy your forget! Who was the one that SLAMMED OVER A TABLE and went berserk?? Yes, it was TERESA! Remember? Now that is whacky!!!
@g386 Honestly I think she already LOST it....
@rosyposy Teresa would love it if Jacqueline would leave her alone and stop talking about her!
@rosyposy Totally agree ..with Rosy.. P.s your the hottest wife on RHONJ
You do not have to be a fan of Teresa's to see that there is something seriously wrong with Jacqueline. Heck, you don't have to be a fan of anyone on this show to see that!
@BlueSky7 just because we don't like jacqueline and see her trouble making doesn't mean we like theresa.
@BlueSky7 Blue someone hitting a table once does not constitute crazy. Someone who has manic episodes of crying, acting out of character almost like there are three people in Jacqueline's personality, that is not mentally stable. You are obviously a fan of Jacquelines and thats great, but perhaps you might help you friend by donating money to her, I am sure she could use your help, since your such a passionate loving fan yes? <wink>
@Jessica.Cohen954 @BlueSky7 None of the ladies are saints, they all have issues, nobody is perfect. To say that either one has mental issues is pretty off & doesn't make any sense. They both went through tough & rough times in their private lives & instead of bashing each & everyone we should be a bit more considerate & acknowledge that ppl who are going through tough times usually aren't acting normal. There are issues & problems they are dealing with, but no mental illness. Let them & work it out without all the name calling & finger pointing.
@Jessica.Cohen954 You said it perfectly.
Teresa may not be the smartest tool in the bunch but she is not mentally unstable. Anyone who says Jacqueline is acting this way because of her issues now has not watched from the beginning. Jacqueline should call it a day and leave the RHONJ, she is being selfish for her own needs first.
Anyone who has been watching since the beginning knows Jacqueline was always a bit unstable, always crying (back then is was about an almost stranger Danielle). Fighting with her sister in law, punching her own sister in law (Caroline) in the face because of some child raising advice. Crying and fighting with her daughter, fighting with her husband and showing severe jealousy of her Ashley and Chris relationship (daughter and father). No one is blaming Jacqueline for having an unstable personality, but people are pissed because they don't want to watch it. It is exhausting and depressing at the same time. Teresa was going thru money issues, she was not brawling with people in the street like Jacqueline Laurita or acting like a 4 year old. We the viewers don't want to see this anymore. Jacqueline has been falling over the edge since season 1. Now she just lets it all out there and doesn't care who notices.
99% of people feel the same way. What does that tell you? As Heather says, "if majority of people are telling you you're dead, it's time to lay down"
