The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita was one of Andy’s guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. Jacqueline answered questions about sister-in-law Dina Manzo, her ex-BFF Teresa Giudice, former co-star Danielle Staub and more!
Has she had any work done to her face or body? “No, but I want to soon.”
Andy mentions that Jacqueline didn’t seem receptive to Teresa’s New Year’s Eve call. “At that time my guard was up. I hadn’t heard from her in so long and then the note. But it was when she said “oh do you always answer the phone on speaker?” She knows when you’re on a reality show you always put your phone on speaker. So I thought she was trying to throw me under the bus and that turned me off immediately and why my walls went up.”
Andy shares that Danielle Staub Tweeted about being ready to return to the show now. Jacqueline says, “Oh okay. She changes her mind every other day.”
On her relationship with Dina, she says that things are peaceful between them.
On seeming like she was mocking Teresa on the show. “Teresa and I have a thirteen year history, so we’ve had this roller coaster relationship. Where we left off when I left the show, we had agreed to move forward in the friendship. But when cameras were off, she wanted nothing to do with me. She publicly said ‘I’m not interested a friendship, I don’t miss it.’ And I moved from that. So when she reached out to me two weeks before we started filming again, two weeks before she got out of prison, I took it as not sincere.” She says she felt it was just for TV. “I’m always open to a relationship if it’s genuine.”
Poll question: do you think Teresa was being shady by leaving Melissa off the visitation list in prison? 58% said Yes.
On whether Teresa will ever take responsibility for what she did. “I still don’t think she fully understands it. It’s hard for me to say, but it’s hard for her take accountability. I don’t know how to answer that.”
On Teresa storming off from her Access Hollywood interview, Jacs says she’s torn. “I think it was a question she’s been asked many times and that she’s answered many times. So I’m not sure what set her off.” But, she also didn’t like that the hosts did the high five after it.
