Obviously that last episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a tough one for Teresa Giudice to watch since it is the one where she and her family said goodbye to Joe Giudice as he left for his prison sentence. Like her or not, it’s clear that Teresa is a pretty strong person, so I’m sure she will fare just fine. On the bright side, it seems like things are all good with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. The one person who she’s definitely not cool with (at all) is Jacqueline Laurita.
I was honestly a little offended that Jacqueline and any Housewife not named Teresa were so prominently featured during such a crucial episode, but I really couldn’t stomach it when Jacqueline was talking about how she was so upset seeing Joe and Teresa hug before he left. It didn’t seem authentic and it’s hard to follow her train of thought: does she love Teresa or hate her? I get that life isn’t that black and white, but it’s just such two extremes going from wanting to be BFF’s to constantly trashing her. And well, Teresa isn’t here for it.

Teresa actually wrote a nice Bravo blog entry about how tough it was to watch the last episode and how she’s thankful for the support she’s been getting. As a fan, I loved reading that, but the part that really piqued my interest was the part near the end about Jacqueline. Teresa has been pretty chill this season, but even without trying Teresa still manages to bring controversy to the show. And no one is more annoyed by Teresa for merely existing than her on-again-off-again friend Jacqueline.
After she thanked everyone for all of the support, she went in on Jacqueline, “One person who doesn’t seem like she’s supporting me too much these days is, of course, Jacqueline.” Well, yeah. She’s trashing Teresa and Melissa on and off the show pretty much every chance she gets.
Teresa added, “She said on the show that she got teary-eyed when she saw pictures of me saying goodbye to Joe. At first I thought that was nice, but then I wondered if that was just her being fake.” Obviously, she just wanted camera time by talking about the most relevant subject (Teresa – as always).
Teresa also said, “But in the end, who cares? She and I are done. I wish her and her family well. I just want her to leave me and my family alone.” I have no idea how “done” these two could ever be as long as they are contracted to appear on the same reality TV show, so that will be interesting to see how that plays out…
