Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider Celebrate a "Full Circle Moment"
The RHONJ OG and alum shared the special moment just days after Teresa stepped out to support Jackie's new book.
During the September 26 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum shared some positive words about Teresa and her marriage to Luis “Louie” Ruelas. The comments underscored just how far the two have come since their tense falling out in RHONJ Season 11, as they’ve gone from full-on foes to supportive friends.
Jackie expanded on the mended relationship in a recent interview with Us Weekly, insisting there was no bad blood between her and the Jersey OG.
“All this stuff is in our past, and we both acknowledge that we’ve been through it,” Jackie said. “We know that we have and we’ve both not been very nice to each other, and it’s OK. It’s OK. We’re through it.”
Jackie Goldschneider shares a throwback photo of her and Teresa Giudice
On Friday, September 26, Jackie posted an Instagram Story of her and Teresa at the Bookends bookstore in Ridgewood, New Jersey, where she was signing copies of her newly released memoir, The Weight of Beautiful. The photo captured Teresa posing in front of a step-and-repeat alongside Jackie and her twin sons, Jonas and Adin. The picture was paired with a 2011 photo that showed Jackie and her boys meeting Teresa during a shoe store launch in Englewood, New Jersey.
“Full circle moment...” Jackie captioned the then-and-now post, which Teresa reshared on her Instagram.
“So, I was a fan of [The Real Housewives of New Jersey], and I wanted to meet Teresa,” she explained. “So, I took the picture with the kids.”
Jackie Goldschneider on Her New Memoir, The Weight of Beautiful
Jackie is on a promotional tour for her debut book, which chronicles her upbringing, career evolution, and years-long battle with anorexia. The mother of four spoke about The Weight of Beautiul in a recent interview with BravoTV.com, explaining how she approached the project without the help of a ghostwriter.
“The story had lived in my head for so long that I had a really specific way of writing, and I think this came from years of experience,” said Jackie, who is also a published freelance writer. “I would, every single day, sit down and, no matter what, just write until 500 words came out. After maybe a week of doing that, I would make sure all my ideas were out, [and] I would start redrafting it and redrafting it. I’d go through, like, seven drafts until it had all the emotion that I wanted and all the words that I wanted, that it flowed beautifully. I could write a great chapter in two weeks.”
She continued: “It was really important to write it myself. I don’t think that anyone else could’ve captured the true, raw emotion of what I felt.”
