Jacqueline Laurita is taking to her Bravo Blog to apologize to Teresa and Joe Gorga for a sexual joke she made about the siblings in the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jacqueline says she was bothered that her husband kept bringing up Teresa on their date night, but she was hoping their family could reconcile on the retreat.
Jacqueline writes, “Before I write anything, I want to apologize to Joe Gorga and Teresa for my comment about them that was in bad taste. I’m talking about the comment when I told Chris that I hoped it wasn’t Teresa that Joe Gorga lost his virginity to when he was 9 years old. That was my sarcastic sense of humor coming out. It came from me thinking back to the awkward flirty comments Joe and Teresa made to each other last year waiting for their therapy session together. “You smell good.” and “Red is a sexy color.” It was kind of an inside joke between us all that Teresa and Joe were in love with each other and maybe that is where all the jealousy was coming from. That comment really wasn’t meant for public viewing, because it’s something my husband and I would joke around about in private. We have even teased Joe Gorga about it before to his face and he laughs with us. Do I REALLY feel they slept together? Of COURSE NOT! Don’t be silly. Moving on…
It was bothering me that Chris kept bringing up Teresa on our date, but I get why. We ARE in each other’s lives. I guess Teresa and Joe kept bringing me up too. LOL! I know that a lot of people were telling me that Teresa seems obsessed with me because she keeps talking about me on the show, but you have to understand that there is a long history between us and we were both hurt by each other. We both talked about each other. It’s what women do. We vent.
I remember feeling at that time that I hoped their family could all make amends and be happy with each other. I was also looking forward to not hearing about their issues anymore. I just really didn’t want them to try to drag me into their love fest by attempting to get me to make up with Teresa too. At the time, I couldn’t imagine Teresa being a part of my life again. I couldn’t trust her sincerity at all after hearing her say she hated me hours after she hugged me and told me she loved me. I felt like she always said she forgave people, but then she would regurgitate the same story all over again and throw it back into your face while she secretly hated on you. I didn’t feel good. I just wasn’t trusting Teresa at this time, and I still felt very hurt by her. When you go through a “break up” with a friend or boyfriend, you go through stages of hurt and anger. I was still feeling both, but I was doing my best not to even think about her at all. It was kind of hard when people kept bringing her up. It was making our situation really hard to avoid.”
