Jacqueline Laurita Gives Update On Nicholas’ Progress


Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is speaking to In Touch, and updating fans on her son Nicholas’ autism diagnosis. Jacqueline reveals she’s found one thing that’s made a big difference. She and Chris love Pleygo, which is a Netflix-like service that rents out LEGO sets. Jacqueline shares that the rotating lineup of building block sets is one that’s helped build on the strong relationship between Jacqueline and her son. “I know that playing with LEGOS is something that my son, Nick, and I both enjoy doing together that enhances a connection between us,” she tells the mag.

Jaqueline also reveals that her RHONJ cast mates have been very supportive of Nicholas’ journey. “They send me links to things that could help him,” she says. “Like, I do a lot of researching so they come up with a contact. They know this person who has this child so they help me in that way. Pretty much everyone sends me things they learn. They all send me leads and it’s nice like that.”

“People that aren’t going through [autism] don’t understand it,” she says. “I love having the opportunity to be able to show people because honestly, what’s given me strength is listening to everyone else’s stories, their struggles, their successes. That’s what gives us hope and strength, so if I can do that for someone else, then that feels so good to me.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
