During the show, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy Cohen, “I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce. So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t.”
Dina replied, “That’s not true. Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. I wanted to meet with my brother more than anything.” In response, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy, “Chris Laurita favorited my tweet. He knows the truth.” and “I still have our text messages that I can show you.” Does anyone delete texts?
In the first one Teresa attempts to explain what she meant by “I don’t understand why this is happening to us.” She also tries to plead her case about her respect for the law and how she’s going to pay back the $400,000. In the second video they take a few calls from viewers. And she goes on and on again with the ‘victim’ stance of how the biggest lesson she learned from this whole mess is to never sign things without asking an attorney to explain them. She also talks about how this is just a blip in time and they’ll get through this and move on with life.
When a caller asked for Tamar‘s opinion on Kenya‘s music, she shared, “She sings? No shade! I think I heard [Gone with the Wind Fabulous] in the club one time. I didn’t know it was a serious record. No shade. Well, I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. Something about the thirst of it all. She’s a pretty girl. It’s just, like, the pageant thing kind of reeks.” Tamar admitted that NeNe Leakes is her girl.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s social media accounts for a reaction. And Kenya delivered!
Andy Cohen is releasing another memoir and it’s due to hit shelves next month. To celebrate the release of “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year”, the Watch What Happens Live host sat down with Glamour Magazine to share his thoughts on how to have a happy life and we have a few excerpts from the article, including giving props to his friendships withNeNe Leakes and Bethenny Frankel.
DO know: You’re your own worst critic: “When Christina Hendricks and Dylan McDermott were on my show [in October 2013], I felt like everything I said didn’t come out right or landed with a thud. When I have off shows, I have to remind myself that my experience of what just happened was only my experience. It’s never as intense for everyone else as it is for you.”
Andy starts right off with Teresa’s claims in court that the show is fake. “In court papers you claim that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is scripted. ‘It is little more than a work of fiction engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing.’ What did you mean by that?” Teresa responds, “Meaning that there are editors on the show and our producers”, Andy cuts her off “were you told to flip the table?” Teresa says “no flipping the table I did.” Andy asks if she was told to fight with Melissa or Joe Gorga. “My family coming on the show, you know Andy, I didn’t know they were coming on the show.” Andy says “you didn’t want them on the show,” Teresa jumps in “not that I didn’t want them on the show, they never told me they were coming on the show.” Andy tries to end it with “we’ve had this discussion many times, ya ya ya.” Teresa says “When my family came on, I didn’t like the way I was portrayed. I was the villain, I was this mean person. People would come up to me and they’re like ‘oh my God you’re so nice’ and I’m like ‘what do you mean?’ and they’re like ‘you come off so mean on the show.”
Before she stopped by Watch What Happens Live, LuAnn was in The Village earlier in the night and shared with Andy that her co-stars were less than gracious. “Tonight we were at the Arts Club down in the village and they were at this party and I was told that they wanted to sit at another table rather than be at the same table with me. Love it, that’s fine. It’s cool. ” LuAnn laughed the whole thing off, naturally.
Andy asked, “did Ramona play dumb when she saw you?” LuAnn replied sarcastically “No, she is always soo very nice.” She added, “She tried to organize a little bit before. You know how shifty Ramona is. She is very shifty.”
Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was slipped in on the end of the new Real Housewives of New Jersey episode – the one we all thought would be 90 minutes. Annoying. But anyway! Jacqueline Laurita was on along with Rita Wilson and it was a pretty low-key episode. Jacqueline shared some updates on Nick and says he’s doing good and progressing well. The only thing Jacs shared about the show in general was her friendship status with Teresa Giudice.
When Andy asked Jacs how she felt hearing/seeing Teresa saying that she could no longer trust her, she replied, “It wasn’t a surprise because I think I figured it out after we were done taping and we didn’t hang out afterwards. We both had agreed in Arizona that we were going to put our difference aside and we had a choice to either move on with the friendship or we leave it as acquaintances or whatever. We made a pact that we were going to move forward in the friendship and rebuild that and I kept my end and she didn’t.”
