The cameras were there. There is nothing Bravo would have liked better than to show Teresa, shady Kim, and satanic bald guy cooking up a way to embarrass Melissa publicly. What you report to be true is NOT true--what we see on camera is Teresa, fumbling and embarrassed, leaving the room at the salon in order NOT to be a part of any of this vile man's plotting. Were you there when the shady man was heard laughing for some reason nobody knows? No. Did you see that awful man being told by horrible Kim and Teresa to embarrass Melissa, and would you believe anything that came out of this demon's mouth? No. And yet you inserted yourself into the situation and reported YOUR fuzzy interpretations of what happened at the salon to Joe Gorga, driving the wedge between him and his sister even further. Why? Didn't you take just a tiny bit of pleasure out of warning Joe against his sister? What I saw on that episode was Teresa frantically nervous at the salon and, in the lades' room, frantically trying to explain to Melissa, in her vocabulary-disabled way, that a bad man at the salon had accused Melissa of having been a stripper, and that he was up to something. Teresa frantically searching for the man at the event. Teresa mortified that suddenly the behavior of this bald headed Satan was suddenly interpreted by everybody as Teresa's fault, and instead of getting the truth out of that awful man when you all had the chance when he was standing right in front of you (your best way to defend Melissa), you were all sitting there at the table text text testing--why? To prove this was all Teresa's doing? And of course the fair, pure, innocent, incapable of looking out for herself Melissa had to call her knight in shining armor to come rescue her from his evil sister and the villainous bald guy, so there would be a fight. Because to Melssa Love Means Aways Having Men Get Into Street Brawls To Defend Your Honor. .. And you have YOUR surmisings as to what all the truths were that day and night, and you write that "clearly" each of these was true, when you have no real proof of ANY of them! It was BY NO MEANS clear that Teresa was anything but mortified at the beauty salon and at horrible Kim D's event. There is a part in this pitifully sad years long fallout that came to a head on that awful "Let's all gang up on Teresa night," and instead of piling on your innocence in this blog, you just need to own your part in the tragedy of it. All of you who turn Teresa into the devil, it doesn't make you angels. It just makes you look small and unloving. Teresa is no angel, but you can't set the every evil in everybody's lives at her feet. It's like it's the food you all eat and the air you all breathe. You can't even go out to a nice dinner with your husband without focusing on how much you hate Teresa for being the bogeyman in your life, when you claim she's not even a part of your life! You are like something mythological that is both consumed and nurtured by hate of someone who is just barely equipped to function in this world in terms of intellect, which is clear in so many ways (her contentment in a marriage to a neanderthal and believe his lies, her childlike vocabulary, her inability to understand or pronounce common words and phrases, and the difficulty she has expressing herself when under duress or when the subject matter is too complex for her). It's so very unattractive in you.
I am right with you Jacqueline. Teresa claims to be so loyal to family... yet she did not warn Melissa prior to the show. Tre lies like a rug. If her mouth is open, she's lying or badmouthing somebody. Then she denies it and tries to play all innocent and injured if she's called out on it. I feel sorry for her kids growing up with that for an example.
Jac had a friend who was in on it and told her about it, she had the facts which doesn't mean she mastered the plan. Joe had a right to know
Jacqueline, own up to how you set up your best friend. You saw what we saw, an evil man setting Melissa up, using Teresa and Teresa not knowing how the hell to handle it. You blamed Teresa for something Kim D. Phhhht, and that evil man put into play. Shame shame on you. The only affection I have for you left is compassion for your struggle with Nicholas. But everytime you speak it is cray cray now. Go away, PLEASE. With friends like you, Teresa doesn't need enemies.
I assume you are probably a good person and you are going threw a lot, but, you need to either try fix thing with Teresa or jus gt over it because you come off completely resentful of her and at times come off kinda crazy actually. you say you have more important thin in life you have to deal with but yet all you seem talk about is Teresa. just focus on whats really important, your family.
I think Jacqueline is the one that set up the stripper thing with Kim D and she should own it.thats why she is so messed up with Teresa,TERESA knows she did it.
I don't think it was Jacqueline had no right to go Joe Gorga and say Teresa set it up as a definite fact. I understand that's what she thought or whatever she says it was obvious but you don't go up someone say that like you knew for a fact. and there is a lot of important things going on in your life and this whole season you just seem to be way to involved in their family situation. I like Jacqueline and don't like see so much anger and not letting things go.You are more then that!
lovehwnj1105 Jacqueline has an agenda. She wants to deflect onto Teresa for unknown reasons. She was the pot stirrer between Teresa and her brother and if she isn't begging for forgiveness, then shame, shame on her.
What you said about Joe Gorga and his virginity tonight was disgusting. You have shown us your trashy, vulgar, insane thoughts one time too many. To bring speculation of incest between Teresa and her brother is absolutely abhorrent and you need to see a doctor. You are vile.
The more you speak the crazier we realize you are. Put down the Pinot and step away from your keyboard. It's time to lay down.
And who does everyone think Jac was texting the night of the fashion show? Since she can't say it had to be Kim D who else knew that Teresa was at the salon. Oh and Jac is such a good friend she could not say who it was on the reunion show but brought out all of Teresa's dirty laundry. You need to leave this show and take care of your children. I think you are trying to use the pity card to stay on the show because you really need some help!
It appears that Joe & Teresa have deep rooted family issues. First of all we all know that Teresa is not the brightest crayon in the box, but I have to give credit that she is hard working. She is not spoiled. Why are you still discussing Teresa? Your connection is cut. You need to grow up as you often behave like a cry baby. Your credibility is shattered since your out of control behavior. You act younger and more foolish than your daughter Ashley. You now need to mind your own business and stay of Teresa's business. I am not a fan of Teresa as I believe they all of them behave wrong.
The parents have contributed to the problems between Joe and Teresa by taking sides. Husbands and wives often have to side with their spouse but parents should be the voice of reason.
Glad to see that you did not fall for Teresa's manipulations and allow yourself to be filmed with her at the "retreat". She planned drama from the get go, but got more than she expected. I guess she thought Melissa and Joe would continue to be abused by her lies. It was such a terrible scene. Aren't you glad you stayed away? You were close o Teresa, so you know better than most what a sly, twisted person she is. You don't need her. Congrats on realizing that. She wishes she had a husband like yours.
If all I am watching the show Teresa is innocent. Kim D set up Melissa and Teresa wanted to call out the bald guy with Melissa and Melissa wanted no part of it because of you. You had no business getting involved. Are you the cause of their problem NO. Teresa needs to realize her poor relationship with her brother's wife is causing the problem. I also think you wanted Teresa to be your friend as you went through the issues with your son. I think you are disappointed that she wasn't there for you. This made you angry and you wanted to get her back.
Holly Molly Jac,
She doesn't blame you for the family feud. She blames you for fueling it. Which you just admitted to doing, page 2 of this blog. You should of kept your mouth shut and let them figure it out. You shouldn't of butted in. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that at the posch show something always goes down, and hmmm Teresa, her Brother, and SIL not getting along was the obvious thing to stir the drama pot with. Kim D said, that even you knew that Melissa was the target and that she told you, so why didn't you stop it! Right cause you wanted to get back at Teresa. You were wrong and being hurt, mad or whatever I not a good excuse. You should own it and apologize for butting in out off spite.
It would seem that your hands would be more than full. Yet you continue to obsess and base your life around Teresa and your intense dislike and envy of her.
Don't you realize you've been very blessed? Many mothers of children with autism are single and without proper resources to help them cope. You are a wealthy woman with a wonderful and supportive husband. Compared to most, you're way ahead of the game girl.
Be thankful. Be thankful and take care of your own life!! Stop obsessing on Teresa before you make yourself ill!!
hey Jac everytime something comes up you always say you hate Teresa but at the end of the day you always have her name in your mouth I think you need to calm down and relax but real talk I think you still want to be her friend cause you always seem to talk about her.
Jacqueline, I don't know if you're still interested, at least maybe not at this moment, but I do hope you and Teresa can work out your friendship someday. I had a falling out with my best friend a long time ago, and the way you two talk about each other speaks volumes of how hurt you two really are, even if you both try to say you don't care. Teresa wanted you to be there, she said some things when she saw you weren't there, but I do believe that's because deep down she was hurt you didn't go. I'm not saying she was right, I'm just saying I think you two still really care for each other. You have enough going on in your own life to not need or want to worry about her family drama, but I still feel like you're the only person who has a real right to still be upset or angry with Teresa, you're the only person who reached out because you were concerned for your friend and all the things she was going through, and the way she reacted was hurtful, but I guess it was out of embarrassment.
I understand you are going to talk about the likelihood of your son C.J. masturbating in the next episode. You have done it! You have managed to humiliate each and everyone of you children on t.v. You must feel so accomplished.
gessie I can't even watch the video clip. I just cringe. What a terrible lack of basic respect for CJ. They had no right to go there!!
Ugh, I've not watched the video either, in fact I didn't even know about it... but really not surprised.
You weren't even on this episode yet you blog 4 pages about,,, well, what else, Teresa !! Ugh, and with all you have going on? How on earth do you find the time and energy to devote to this obsession? That would of been time better spent securing a good therapist. Don't let yourself get so far gone that you can't find your way back to a good place in your life.
The first part of your blog was disappointing. The second half was insightful and compassionate. Teresa blames you because she can't see that she was as complicit as Kim D. Teresa thinks that if she doesn't know the details or participate in the planning she did nothing wrong. She does not understand she should have warned Melissa herself. I think her plan was to be the hero and confront baldy herself with Melissa at her side. The best laid plans and all that....Unbeknownst to you, you kinda blew that out of the water. Hence, her blaming you. You took her thunder away. The opportunity to show she has Melissa's back. It just wasn't supposed to play out like this in Teresa's mind. Now look where he show is. Quite frankly I believe many people are tired of it. I record the show. I used to be excited to watch it and see what people have to say. Now its the following Thursday or Friday. People's perceived offenses are petty and uncomfortable to watch. We miss the antics you and Teresa used to do. My brothers son is autistic. They didn't forget to smile or have a god time. My nephew graduated High school and they are working on independence. My husband worked with a gentleman that was autistic, he was brilliant. Had a family and makes an enviable salary. My point is don't be consumed, its okay to be happy. We miss your smile and laughter. The bitterness in this show is too much. This is your life. Its too short to waste on he said she said. You and Teresa can still be friends, just set boundaries.
I think Teresa was just as involved as Jac and Caroline were. They all knew something was going to happen! Yet Teresa has to be the ONE to blame! That's the point, I don't blame her for not taking the blame they all walk all over her, call her names, and are downright nasty to her. She doesn't deserve it. Just because she met the bald guy earlier that day does not make her guilty, we saw it all unfold. I don't believe for one second that scene was acted out at all and I don't think it went any further she told the guy she doesn't want to hear it and left the room!
phishgirl2 I hope baldy knows he cannot show his face on tv public, and from my lips to God's ears, may he learn shame and admit he set Teresa up.
Teresa, has put her brother and sister in-law thru hell and then some, her trashy Husband doesn't help matters. She constantly says one thing and does another. She lies, like in the last episode where she claims she helped to get her husband off her brother when all she did is run away. Teresa gets the sister in-law from hell award!
Don't you ever get bored listening to yourself bitch and moan and talk talk talk about Teresa? You're boring. You're always angry. You're laughter is just a mask for hate and that shows your anger and it is really really boring to watch and to read. Get a life. Please.
Instead of getting into everyone else's business maybe it would be a better idea to attend to your own! Teresa has asked you to leave her alone - why can't you do that?
Said it before and I will say it again.. You and Caroline should be so ashamed of yourselves for all the times you trashed this woman to her brother....shame shame shame....
A gossip will betray a confidence, but a trustworthy person will always keep a secret.
- Proverbs 11:13
So you knew all this was happening and bunched up all these pieces and couldn't warn the Gorgas? It's nice to see you try so hard to prove yourself. If you feel for people, you shouldn't put "digs" in when it isn't necessary.
This is for all you Jacqueline haters " Easy is to judge the mistake of other, Difficult is to recognize your own mistakes!!!
alice.m.manno It is much easier to see that Jacqueline has mental health issues and she drinks too much. You can tell by the look on her husband's face that he recognizes her problems and doesn't know what to do about them.
Mellisa is the entire problem. She is such a 2 faces person and brain wash her husband against her sister all the time. I can't stand her.
I just saw the preview clip of you and Chris having dinner. You are disgusting!! When Chris said Gorga told him he had sex the first time at 9 years old ...WHY did you have to say "I hope it wasn't with Teresa?" You really need help!! It shows what an evil person you are!
pjkacper She tries to be so funny, when she only looks silly, immature, and EXTREMELY JEALOUS! I didn't miss her in the least last episode..... NOT ONE BIT! For me, no Jacko = JOY AND HAPPINESS!!!!
pjkacper I'm beginning to wonder what Jacqueline's relations is like with her brother?! since she loves to make incestuous comments?!
I love Jac. She is the most real one on the show. I think she is fed up with Teresa and non sense. Jac has bigger issues to deal with than teresa.
