Jacqueline Laurita: "Distance Helped My Relationship with Ashlee"

Why Ash moving to L.A. “worked out for the best.”

By Lauren Metz


Thank you, Jesus! After years of growing pains, The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita and her fedora-loving daughter Ashlee have finally settled into a “really good” place. It only took about 3,000 miles to get them there.

“[Ashlee] moved to L.A. and she’s living in Hollywood. She’s working and she’s realizing what it’s really like to live on your own,” Jacqueline, who’s also mama to sons C.J. and Nicholas, tells Wetpaint. “She calls me all the time and asks for advice. The distance has really helped our relationship.”

However, if Jacqueline had her way initially, Ashlee would have tossed her La La Land dreams aside in exchange for some southern comfort. “I really wanted her to move to Texas where she has family and she could go to school and work,” the ‘Wife explains. “But she took the initiative to move to L.A. on her own and that took a lot of courage on her part. I was worried sick, but it’s really worked out for the best.”

While that relationship is on its smooth sailing way, Jacqueline’s friendship with Teresa has gone, well, kaboom. “F--k you, Teresa. I see you for exactly what you are,” Jacqueline says in a preview for the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, premiering this Sunday at 10/9c.
