Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week, in honor of Jacqueline Laurita’s RHONJ return, we’re throwing back to her tumultuous friendship with Teresa Giudice.
In New Jersey, everyone knows that blood is thicker than water. But sometimes when friendships brew long enough over the years, friends become like family. Such was the case with Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice. During the first few seasons of RHONJ, these two former besties defended each other like sisters. Yet, over the course of Season 3, their sisterly bond began to dissipate. Jacqueline felt that Teresa wasn’t being truly honest over her early financial woes, and also that her rage toward sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, was misdirected. And, when Jacqueline decided to confront Teresa over the issues, things quickly went from bad to worse.
Clearly not seeing eye-to-eye, resentment over their initial sit down continued to rear its ugly head during Season 3.
Once the dust had settled in Season 4, Teresa and Jacqueline attempted to bury the hatchet during a healing trip to Arizona.
They say time heals all wounds. These days, Teresa has mended her relationship with Melissa and also taken complete responsibility for her actions. Meanwhile, Jacqueline is still holding out hope that her and Teresa’s Arizona truce will lead to a rekindling between them. Find out the state of their friendship when Jacqueline returns to RHONJ this Sunday at 8/9c. Watch a preview below:
