Sunday night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was filled with drama and Jacqueline Laurita is opening up about her feud with castmate Teresa Giudice, saying she doesn’t buy her attempt at sincerity — and RadarOnline.com has all the details.
Jacqueline explained that Teresa has been out of sight, out of mind, but when people continued to bring up her name and family issues, it all came to a head.
“It just seemed odd to me that, miraculously, Teresa wanted to make an effort to resolve everything with her family, after I had been trying to make that happen for two years prior! Why now? I wasn’t buying into the sincerity of it all. At the time, I felt like it was all for show and not for real,” Jacqueline wrote on her Bravo blog Monday morning.
“On top of that, I was getting increasingly annoyed, because I heard that Teresa kept talking about me behind my back saying I was stalking her at ‘her’ gym and blaming me for all of her family fighting. It annoyed me so much, because I knew that I had done so much to try to bring her family back together, and not only was it not appreciated, I somehow became the a–hole, and I felt like Teresa wasn’t taking any accountability for any of her own actions to cause the rift in her family.”
Explaining the incident during Sunday’s episode where Jacqueline grabbed the phone Kathy Wakile, she says she just wanted to tell Teresa to “take some accountability for her part in that mess.”
“It got pretty heated and out of control on both ends. It was a ping-pong match of insults. I was imitating what Teresa said to me on the phone in my interview when I was saying, ‘You’re a liar, liar!’ When I was talking to Teresa, she kept saying, ‘La, la, la, la, I can’t hear you, la, la, la.’ LOL! Looking back, we both sounded and acted a little silly, but when you’re in the moment, everything just flows out. LOL!” Jacqueline wrote.
“I was still so hurt and upset by the whole thing and my suppressed feelings and frustrations were starting to come to the forefront. I am sorry that Kathy got caught in the crossfire, but hey, I’ve been caught in theirs before as well.”
More on Teresa, Jacqueline slammed her for how she treats her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.
“When I heard Teresa had been with those catty girls she called her friends talking about Melissa, I couldn’t help but go back to what I knew last year. It appeared to me that Teresa was playing innocent again and letting her ‘soldiers,’ as I called them, be her voice, in order to expose Melissa or make up lies about her in a way that would ensure nobody would like her or buy her new book,” she wrote.
“I kept thinking that if Teresa knew that these girls were on national TV trash talking her sister-in-law with those defaming accusations that she would want absolutely nothing to do with these girls again. It’s one thing to listen to them behind closed doors, but this salacious gossip was obviously being spread nationwide. Instead, it seemed as though Teresa embraced them.”
Jacqueline says she tries to stay neutral and understand both sides, but gets frustrated that Teresa preaches loyalty to family and then stabs them in the back.
“I guess it confused me and made me wonder why Teresa remained so close with these girls when she was always preaching loyalty to family. It just didn’t seem like she was playing by her own rules,” she wrote.
“Everyone was annoying me so much about going on this retreat! I felt like this was more about Teresa mending things with her family and I had no place going there. I would only be a distraction. I also didn’t want to invite Teresa back into my life again at that time. I was consumed with other things, and I didn’t want to get caught up in all the B.S. again. But it’s so hard to avoid that when we were all in each other’s lives the way we were. Our paths couldn’t help but cross again.”
Tune in next Sunday night on Bravo to see how the drama turns out!
