Teresa Giudice’s friendship with Jacqueline Laurita back in the day was one of the real ones. The Real Housewives of New Jersey queen came to the hospital following baby Nicholas’ birth, and Jacqueline did the same for Baby Auddriana. The two have had a rocky relationship over the last decade, that’s for sure, with things coming to a head in season 7. At the time, Teresa claimed the majority of this friendship fall-out took place off camera.
But their foundation is still solid deep down. Tre has admitted, “She was my best friend, that was really traumatic for me.” Friendships like that don’t evaporate. Even for Teresa.
On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Teresa was asked about where she stands with Jacqueline now. Teresa actually gave an encouraging answer about the relationship. “Well my future sister in law is starting her own business with an app called ‘forgivity’ and she’s telling me I need to forgive and move on, so yeh maybe I would be open to that,” Tre admitted. Big words from a Taurus.
More recently, Dolores Catania appeared on Andy Cohen’s late night show. She was asked whether or not she still keeps in touch with Jacqueline or Caroline Manzo. Dolores acknowledged that she she does not speak to Jacqueline “that much,” but she speaks to Caroline “often.” She was also asked “what was your reaction to Teresa saying she was willing to mend fences?”
“Yea I mean, I think that they should mend fences,” Dolores admitted. She added, They were very close at one time.” Andy then shared that Jacqueline even sent him a DM after Teresa admitted to wanting a friendship again. This rekindling is sending ripples through the Bravo-sphere, apparently!
Earlier this month, Andy interviewed Teresa on his radio show. At that time Teresa was asked if she thought she would still be friends with Jacqueline and Caroline if they had never done the show. Teresa said, “Yea, probably,” before saying, “Absolutely, yes. I was really close with Jacqueline. With Caroline, I wasn’t that close with her. I was respectful to her because she was the sister, and I was close to Dina [Manzo].” I wonder if she would take it all back…
