Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga Come Face to Face With Jacqueline Laurita


The season finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey aired Sunday night and the ladies first gathered at Melissa Gorga’s Envy fashion show. But, we picked up with Dolores Catania explaining her fight with Jacquline Laurita over ladies night at her gym.

“Jacqueline thought I was setting her up to make her look bad that she didn’t show up,” she told the cameras, adding that is something she would never do. Jacqueline thought Dolores didn’t need to call her to ask why she wasn’t coming because she already knew why, and Siggy and Dolores chalked it up to Laurita being a bit paranoid about her friendships.

Dolores found Kathy Wakile at the fashion show and Kathy talked to Dolores and encouraged her to just talk to Jacqueline when she had calmed down about the situation. When Teresa approached, she called Jacqueline evil and when Wakile defended Laurita, Teresa walked away. Giudice eventually found her sister-in-law Melissa who was preparing a speech, and told her she was having a hard time without her husband Joe.

“This is the first event without my husband. It’s been a week. There’s going to be hard days, sad days, but it just something that we’ve got to do,” Teresa said to the cameras.

Melissa pulled off her first fashion show and her husband Joe Gorga was extremely proud of her after battling about her working all season. “I am extremely proud of what she accomplished tonight. She created a crumb to a cake,” he told the cameras.

Siggy Flicker invited Melissa to her house for a lunch where Siggy planned to have Melissa, Teresa, Dolores and Jacqueline talk out their problems.

Siggy was the first to arrive at the lunch and she was more than prepared. She decided to move it to a private room in a restaurant instead of her home. She had security in place, and she removed the knives from the table. Jacqueline was the second to arrive and she sat down with Flicker.

“I came for you because I know how it feels to be that person in the middle,” Jac told Siggy. “I took it too far in Vermont and I said horrible things to Teresa and I take accountability for that, but I was very deeply hurt.” She began crying as she added, “But at least I say it to your face. I don’t pretend to be somebody’s friend when I really don’t want to be their friend.”

Next, Dolores walked in and she made up with Jac right away. Dolores apologized for being “cranky” and calling Jacqueline “a bitch and stuff.”

Finally, Teresa and Melissa arrived, but this brought out a different side of Jacqueline. She demanded she speak to Teresa alone. Teresa said Jacqueline didn’t call the shots, and Jacqueline snapped back, “I think I am calling the shots today.”

Teresa said she wasn’t her teacher. “Is bitch better?” Jacqueline asked, prompting Teresa to hit back with another obscenity that was bleeped out.

“I think you’re an evil person to the core,” Teresa said to Jacqueline. “I think you’re describing yourself,” Jacqueline snapped back before insisting Teresa “was scared.”

Teresa shouted, “You’re evil to the core! That’s why security is here!” She added that Jacqueline was a “conniving, twisted f*cking bitch.”

Then, Jacqueline left.

Siggy and Dolores chased after her to try to explain that she had handled things incorrectly, but Jacqueline just sped off.

“She’s dead to me,” Teresa said. “She makes me sick. She makes me want to f*cking vomit … She’s a disgrace.”

What did you think of this episode? Whose side are you on?

  1. Soggy is annoying, but man… I was laughing so hard at Teresa when she was driving. Wacko jacko is absolutely nuts. She’s the one saying Teresa ended the relationship, but I could’ve swore she said she was DONE with them both. After she cursed them out! Come on! That broad is absolutely nuts! The way she spoke to them and changed personalities was insane to me. She switched up so fast.

      1. Ughh, it was ugly Suze. You don’t have to watch the episode, just go to your kitchen and throw some oil & vinegar together in a pot…then watch how it combats each other while neither are willing to combine. Lol. It will pretty much sum up the this show.

  2. I completely agree with geminigirl. Perhaps because I’m a Gemini too and we are supposed to have 2 personalities (at least lol) but never have I ever spun out of control like wacko jacko! I mean, holy crap!! It’s like dealing with a 5 year old with much worse language and insults. I’m thinking she needs a day in a room with Bethenny Franco (where she can’t run and her hubby isn’t around to coddle her.) That’s another thing! Why does everyone coddle her?!? Running in a parking lot barefoot just to bring her back? I lost it when J opened the door, saw these ladies running after her and she gives that fake kind of creepy grin and keeps going! WHAT?! Siggy put a lot of effort into this and this is how Jacko reacts. Must EVERYTHING be about you Jacqueline? You’re hurt, you’re tired, you’re period came, you’re sick, you’re being set up. OMG! How about you’re loosing your grip on reality? Get over yourself and the paranoia. It’s hard to watch and it seems no matter how nice everyone treats you, you don’t trust them. Truly deep insecurity and low self esteem and I don’t think anyone wants to tip toe around you and walk on eggshells anymore. ITS SO ANNOYING watching you this season. However, if you’re trying to get me invested in the show to the point that I would actually post, you’ve done an amazing job!!!

    1. Cecilia, love your name it makes want to sing Simon and Garfunkle! I’m also a Gemini and yes I have two personalities just like most Geminis, ask my husband! Lol Jacko needs locking up I think everyone is scared that she will lose it forever! Welcome from me! Xo

    2. Chris is truly the conductor of the crazy train. At this point, I think he’s getting her all hyped up for TV because they need money. And they’re no better than the Giudices with scamming and defrauding, but I just don’t understand how it’s never really spoken about.

  3. Jaco is awful for the way she was being demanding and bossy. TRE still a criminal period. Siggy makes everything all about herself and I think just likes To hear herself talk. Delores spot on for inviting Jaco on the phone so it does show she tried to include Jaco.

  4. Siggy is just….ridiculous. She seems like a nice person, but her constant, unceasing need for attention causes her to shout every word she says (translates to “lookatme, lookatme, lookatme”), and to butt into everyone’s business. Her actions simply have to be producer-contrived, because no one would tolerate a friend horning into every relationship they have. She has no credentials for her self appointed “relationship expert” title, and all she does is meddle, constantly churn issues which would settle down and die if she just left them alone, and scream. She’s just exhausting. Then, just as her kids get to the age where they should be separating from their parents and forming their own lives, she starts squealing about how they’re leaving her (at 100 decibels no less). Yes, Siggy, they are leaving you. And they should be.

    Jacqueline suffers from both incredible anxiety, which causes her to over analyze every little thing, and to be paranoid about how to deal with it, and a startling lack of insight about her own behavior. She is just not stable. Chris needs to support her, but stop enabling her– it’s not good for her. I suspect they’re both a bit panicked; if Teresa shuts Jacqueline off, she has no relevance on the show. And if she loses the show, she and Chris are plunged back into financial ruin. The show is their only income, I believe, despite all of Chris’ “businesses”.

    Melissa is just along for the ride, which I think is probably a great strategy for being on any show with the ever-dominant Teresa. And Teresa is smart enough to know she needs allies, especially with her husband in prison. They’re a good tea, and they know it. Dolores is like some sad throwback to the Italian wife stereotype, except she’s been divorced forever and is now just codependent.

    What a collection of crazies.

  5. I have nevef liked Teresa and never well! She is just a bitch to everyone! This new friendship with sister in law will not last long just matter of time

    1. Totally agree! Melissa and Tre are exactly alike, Caroline Manzo called that in Season 3. Both are so self-absorbed! Tre never takes accountability for anything! I have been watching the older seasons when I work out and even back then, Tre always blamed everyone else! In fact, she said, “If the world had more people like me, it would be a better place.” She is so delusional.

      1. I agree. My biggest problem with Theresa is not about going to jail, it’s her inability to ever own her part in a conflict. It’s exhausting. I also found it telling this season when Melissa said to Joe Gorga that she would assess her new relationship with Theresa, not by them getting along, but when she ever has to disagree with her. They seem close now only because Melissa has not disagreed with anything other than joking with her.

  6. I used to like Jacqueline but I agree she has gone over the edge. She needs help but I really can’t stand the Gorgas. In fact the only ones I like now are the two new girls, Dolores and Siggy.
