Who could forget the moment at the Mother's Day brunch on Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey when Jackie Goldschneider confessed to the group that her mom bought an ex-boyfriend's engagement ring to save her from the proposal? Well, almost no one, as it is the kind of juicy confession that is hard to just erase from your memory.
Well, when Jackie sat down for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, she opened up more about that time in her life, her mom purchasing the bling, and why, exactly, she wasn't ready to get married (it involves some creeping around on her part). You can check it out in the clip above.
As for her former beau these days? "He's happily married with two kids, but he will not be my friend on Facebook," she said. "He hates me."
And then that brings us to the ring: "I still think it's sitting in her safe, a really long time later," she said of the ring that her mom purchased from her ex-boyfriend approximately 20 years ago. "It's a diamond. I'll take it.
These days Jackie is also happily married to Evan Goldschneider. And the couple has two sets of twins.
Previously she spoke to The Daily Dish about sharing her home and family life with the world (which, presumably, means that ex may also be tuning in).
"I love watching," she said. "I love that I get to relive four months of my kids' lives over again 'cause I really do. I love that, and so do they. And they love seeing themselves on TV. So we all get to share this together. Which for me, if it was just me who enjoyed it and my family really didn't, I don't know if I could do it. But the fact that we all love it and love sharing it together and experiencing it together makes it just come full circle."
And she seems to have settled down with the right guy: "Not only is my husband spectacular on paper, but he is spectacular off paper, too. You could not find a nicer, sweeter, better father."
Below, Jackie opens up a bit more about their home life.
