Can Teresa Giudice Forgive Jacqueline Laurita?


Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is reacting to what happened in Vermont and the explosive fight that led to her former friend, Jacqueline Laurita, calling her a criminal.

“She’s just not the Jacqueline that I know. The Jacqueline I know didn’t act that way,” Teresa told the Daily Dish. “I heard of her acting that way, I’ve never seen that side of her. And now I did and she looks like a stranger to me. It’s not somebody that I want to be around. I really don’t. I have a lot going on and I want to stay away from negative people that don’t want good for me. Why would I want to be around someone like that?”

During the episode Melissa explained that she believed Jac was jealous of her relationship with Teresa. Does Teresa agree? “Yeah, sort of, yes. I mean, I can get more into it, but yes [I agree],” Teresa said on Watch What Happens Live about that point from her sister-in-law. “Jacqueline wanted Melissa to take her side and when she didn’t, that’s when it all backfired. Like, before I came home.”

So, does Teresa think she can ever repair the damage that’s been done to her relationship with Jac? “I guess time will tell. Right now she’s not someone I want to be around. You don’t treat people that way you really don’t.” She added that she’s also waiting to see how becoming a grandma might change Jacqueline. “I guess time will tell.”

Giudice also added that Jacqueline has a lot of explaining to do when the ladies sit down this week to film the reunion. “Hello? Did you watch tonight’s episode? The grandma!” she said. “Watch the reunion and then you’ll see [what I have to say].”
