Jacqueline Laurita Clears Up Her Fight With Dolores Catania


Jacqueline Laurita is taking to her blog to explain why she got angry at her friend Dolores Catania about the gym flyer and phone call leading up to the finale on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Although they made up, Laurita explains the confusion and where the miscommunication came from.

“Did you love my “NamaÅ›tay Away From Me” shirt that I wore on this episode? My daughter Ashlee designed that shirt with a company called From Phoenix With Love. It’s selling really well, so I am assuming the majority of you liked it! (Thank you very much!) You can look for it on their website and/or get info them about it if it’s sold out. The saying on my shirt had a double meaning for me. The obvious and main meaning for me wearing it was for everyone to stay away from me because I was sick. The other humorous meaning was for Teresa, Joe, and Melissa to stay away from me. I wasn’t ready to talk to them, but I did want to at least show up to Dolo’s housewarming to show my support. This update to her house symbolized new beginnings for her. She was finally creating her own sanctuary she deserved. I was so happy for her. Her home looked beautiful.

As the night continued on, the more sick I felt. Why are nights always the worst when you’re sick? I really just wanted to go home and curl up in my bed. My throat hurt and my spine was aching, which is why I kept drinking tea. What made me more sick is when someone told me that Melissa was in the kitchen telling someone to make me go to her to talk. No thank you, Mego! I had no interest in that. I left to go lay down in the car to wait for Chris so we could go home. He told me he would be right there. I guess he wanted to talk to Joe. Also, that was NOT ME honking the horn outside! Thank you very much!

I vaguely remember Chris telling me the conversation between him and Joe Gorga that night. I honestly didn’t care to even hear about it, but I appreciated my husband having my back. I was also glad to hear Joe Gorga admit to his wife and sister being at fault as well… because they never will. They were both there so they know how the conversation REALLY went down in Vermont.

I want to explain my misunderstanding with Dolores. In about 15 years since I’ve known Dolores, we have never been in one fight with each other. I love that girl! This was our first misunderstanding that lasted less than 24 hours.

I told one person about our fight. I guess that person shared my feelings about it with Dolores. It’s ok, because I shared my feelings with Dolores about it first, so it was no surprise to her. I won’t say anything behind someone’s back that I wouldn’t, or haven’t, already said to that person. I always own my words.

I had helped Dolores plan for her event. I was supposed to have been a speaker at it. I hated having to miss it because I was sick. I had a fever, aches and pains, I was coughing, and I lost my voice. I had told Dolores I was too sick to go to her event earlier that day and she told me she understood. I then asked her for the flyer for her event so I could post it on my social media to help get people to attend. I wasn’t on her flyer but Teresa and Siggy were. You can probably find it still on my Instagram timeline.

When I got the voicemail from Dolores asking me where I was and if I was coming later that night, it threw me off because I had already told her that I wasn’t coming. I pictured her standing in front of people asking me this and it looking like I was a no call/no show for her event like I was a bad friend for not going or telling her I wasn’t coming. I was wondering who all was hearing her ask me that. It confused me why she would ask me that because it just didn’t make sense. It was peculiar. I mean, I wasn’t even on her flyer she made that day as someone that was speaking at her event that night because she already knew I wasn’t going!

I told her that by her asking me in view of others if I was coming that night to her event was as equal to me asking her in front of others why I wasn’t on her flyer when I had helped her with her event and was going to speak at it. Do you get my point? You have to read between the lines.

This is why her phone call offended me.

I told her how I felt on a text and fell back to sleep. Apparently she tried calling me after that and thought I was purposely ignoring her so she left me a pretty nasty text that I saw the next day. That annoyed me even more. I was wondering what the heck was going on! I told our mutual friend about what happened and then I decided to just let it go at that point and just try to get some rest to shake off this flu I had. I just wanted to be left alone at that point. I literally felt sick and tired. I needed time to heal on so many levels. I was burnt out.

Apparently, Dolores was also venting to our mutual friends about our fight. Sometimes you just have to do that to get stuff off of your chest when you’re upset, and who better to vent to than your good girlfriends? I get it. I just didn’t think our misunderstanding had to spread so quickly and publicly the way it did. In my opinion, too many people were getting involved. Sh– happens I guess.”

  1. I couldn’t even finish reading this novel, but what I did read makes me realize that this chick is not helping herself in the least. lol. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but mine is that the shirt was stupid and immature.

        1. That’s difficult as she acts like a mean teenager but I guess if I’m not allowed Brat then Wrat will have to do xoxoxoxoxoxox

          1. Lol..you should have worded it as this…Is Brat better, no. Is WRAT better, no. Is BITCH better?? haha..I’m going to end it on that one and not bring in the last word that Theresa used in the finale.

        1. Hi, Freedom! I can still speed read, one of my many qualities hehehe, seriously my numbers have dwindled as I get older……but with Jaq it is always the same, a long, long blog showing how she is the sick victim, and everyone else is wrong. I dislike it when those who knew me didn’t give me the benefit of the doubt. This crap about “owning” words is old, old psychobabble, why doesn’t she “own” that she didn’t give her “friend” the benefit of the doubt, and wait and ask her. I know, I know ( envision hand raised ) because she wouldn’t be relevant if it weren’t for the negativity in her life. I am positive her talk at “Ladies Night” was going to be about Nick. I think she needs, seriously needs to get off the show and concentrate on her other son. I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach every time anything is filmed in that home, ever since the beginning when she was trying to get pregnant. Something’s very wrong there. I have never once seen her say anything about her other son, CJ, never. Not one bragging rights, no pictures on her phone of his accomplishments, nothing. And I have seen all the episodes more than once, I play them for company when I draw or color. Last, but not least, I would bet a mortgage payment it WAS her honking.

          1. 3D…too funny about honking the horn that night at Delores’s house. That would be absurd if she lied and it really was her honking 😀 I had wondered when she cried in the bathroom at Crystal Springs, why she didn’t relish good memories with either CJ or Ashlee’s accomplishments? I chalked it off to editing but it is strange that CJ barely gets talked about, as he seems like such a great kid. Were you the anonymous poster that I responded to above, or were you just being kind and responded to my “response”? Lol.

            1. No, I never write as anonymous. I don’t know why, but I don’t have to fill in my handle etc., every time I post. I filled it in a couple years ago when I started posting here and It is just always stayed there, my information. I see a lot where there will be an anonymous post, and the poster will immediately come and say “oops, that was me.” I always wondered why my name is just always there. Maybe the kind of laptop I have. I don’t have a good cell phone, but I love my MacBook Air. Even with my old MacBook my handle stayed in the box. And, not to be mean, but I can neither read or write incorrect English, or text language. As I said I only have an old flip phone as my cell, I have maybe spoken on it 5 times in as many years. I don’t text, and I never have in my life spoken on the phone while driving, or sitting in a restaurant with people. I came from a time where I couldn’t be reached when I was out, and I never found it necessary to amend that. If I had any Grandchildren I would have a good i-phone, but alas, I won’t be getting any. I often don’t read the entire blog either, even though I can read very fast still, it’s just the same old with Jaq. I could probably quote her without seeing it, hahaha. I get the gist of it, and that’s enough. 🙂

              1. 3D that was funny about having the need for upgraded technology if you had grandkids, because that is so true. My parents went kicking and screaming into an iphone for that reason. Once I retire and stop working around young folk, I’ll probably be the same way as my parents with technology 😀
                As for the anonymous posts, I can only speak from my own experience. Our names and handles will always stay on the computer that you are using. If you use a new computer or have upgraded your windows/explorer, your information will not be saved. If you have been using the same equipment for years, that is why you’ve never had your name come up as anonymous. I just fired up a new computer at work this week and tried to post without realizing my information was not populated. Once I saw my post come up as in moderation, and then anonymous, I was one of those people to write “oops”..that was me. haha

                1. When I found the peace sign, after RealSandy told me where to find emojis, and I copied Suze and used it in my handle, it went into moderation, also when I got my new MacBook it would have but I filled it in. It didn’t occur to me that some posters use a different computer at times, like at work during break or something. There are some who used to have to say “oops” a lot, saying only that they forgot to fill in the box, so now the mystery is somewhat solved. And, then there would be when an i-phone, or other smart phone is used, too. I would like to have an i-phone, but the cost is prohibitive. I would rather have other things with that money anyway. I used to have a lot more money, but alas, not now. But we are blessed, we have our family, 2 beautiful furry kitties, a home, a car, running water, food, a garden and nice clean beds with wonderful smelling sheets etc., so much more than many have. ❤️

  2. Jacqueline is insane this season joe gorga when saying they were both wrong meant jac and Melissa not Melissa and Teresa. I think something is off with her like Melissa says she’s been wacko the whole season.

  3. Oh Jacqueline…….I’ve been in your corner until this Season. It really does come across that you’re paranoid and spoiling for a fight. I also think it’s irresponsible of Chris for just blindly supporting your nonsense instead of bringing it to your attention. There is something wrong here and it should not be allowed to fester for your sake.

  4. It was clear she was very ill during the taping, which obviously is no fun and can make someone prickly, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that she continually instigated conflict throughout the season and often came off as an unhinged woman with deep personal issues that need tending to.

  5. Jacqueline, in my opinion, is the ugliest and most annoying person on tv. What hold does this woman have over Andy Cohen to be on two Bravo shows? Is Andy afraid of being called anti-autism if the Lauritas’ contracts are not renewed?
    Jacqueline is about as annoying as Siggy.
