You know, fans and co-stars (I'm looking at you Teresa Giudice) always get on Real Housewives of New Jersey's Jacqueline Laurita for her excessive tweeting. You know what I say to that? Hogwash! The woman needs to learn how to express her feelings in 160 characters or less because her Bravo blog this week was nine pages long. NINE PAGES!
In it, Jacqueline reminds herself for three pages that her goal with Teresa was to be civil, not to mend their friendship. We got. Actually, we got it the first time you wrote it! Likewise, she explains for several
paragraphs pages why she felt the need to get the tummy tuck. I'll spare you the detailed description of her pre-surgery lingerie routine. You're welcome.
Of course, I am just giving Jacq a hard time, but I tried to only hit the highlights for you. I feel like Ross on that episode of Friends…"Yes, you went on for eighteen pages…FRONT AND BACK!"

To begin, Jacqueline writes, "Are you all surprised to see the way my conversation ended with Teresa after you saw the way it started? Teresa and I never got to the root of our issues during our talk that night, but at least we got to a place of peace. The goal was to be civil, not friends. I was afraid if we started getting into all the deep stuff, we would just end up arguing. I had to keep reminding myself of the goal. We agreed to disagree."
Jacqueline continues, "I felt hurt by Teresa, because I felt that she never appreciated all my efforts in the previous years in trying to help her mend things with her family. I resented that she got upset with me, pulled away from me, and started talking behind my back when I wouldn't call out her family, agree with her, or take her side on specific things. She didn't consider me a loyal friend because of all that. It was frustrating for me," adding, "I felt there were times she was making things worse for herself and/or the situation, and I was just trying to give her my honest advice as a friend. I cared about her a lot. I only wanted the best for her. I was her biggest supporter. Sometimes you need a friend who will tell you the truth when you are doing or saying things that could hurt you. I honestly loved Teresa. My intent was not to hurt her. She had really disappointed me. I was very hurt.
Of what happened later that evening once the cameras stopped filming, Jacq reveals, "We actually hung out really late that night as couples and had a great time. I apologized to Joe for crossing the line when we were fighting and saying things that were not my place to say. Joe apologized to Chris for the things he had said as well. Teresa? No accountability yet." Show of hands who is shocked…
After her diatribe about Teresa not being able to take responsibility for her actions, Jacq moves onto a novella about her recent plastic surgery. She opines, "I realize that a tummy tuck is a serious surgery, but I checked out Dr. Brent really well first and felt very safe with him. My decision to get a tummy tuck was easy. I always wanted one since I gave birth to Nicholas and lost all of my baby weight. My body just didn't bounce back this time like it did in the past. Dieting and exercising couldn't fix that mess you saw."
Jacqueline jokes, "It looked like an elephant leg. LOL! It didn't matter how beautiful my husband, family, or friends told me I was. I wasn't feeling it. That skin had to go, and so did that tattoo!"
The reality star also dishes about her daughter Ashlee's new found maturity. Can I get a collective "it's about time"? Jacqueline shares, "Doesn't Ashlee look so beautiful? She has really matured in a lot of ways. We just don't fight like we use to. We actually enjoy each other’s company. The relationship we have now is really great. It all worked out. I was so happy to have her there with me. She hung out with me all week. We watched movies and laughed a lot. She is actually staying with us in New Jersey for a while because she decided to go to make-up school in New York. I'm so thrilled to have her home. We all missed her. It's been a lot of fun having her around again."
And there you have it folks! A minute portion of Jacqueline's RHONJ blog. She's got a lot to say, doesn't she? Perhaps she really should be confined to the Twitterverse!
