"Joe sometimes doesn't use the best choice of words, and sometimes I think he says things not realizing he offends someone, but I do think he feel he feels bad about some of the things he says after he says them," she told RadarOnline.com friend Tom Murro.
"For the record...After Joe's comment to Greg on the bus my husband was not laughing WITH Joe; he was laughing AT Joe because he couldn't believe that he said what he said to Greg, out loud and on camera."
Jacqueline says there is a simple explanation for her own spouse's actions.
"My husband covered his face from embarrassment and laughed uncomfortably because he was just in shock over what Joe just said."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jacqueline is in the middle of a nasty feud with Joe's wife Teresa after she was accused of "viciously attacking" Gia Giudice on the show.
