Jacqueline Laurita is one of the only Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members that is still talking to Teresa Giudice — at least on the show. Even Teresa’s family members, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile have distanced themselves. However, Jacqueline’s relationship has fallen apart off-camera and she’s now remembering a few red flags.
“They never bashed Teresa to me the way Teresa would bash them to me. Her family only mentioned their concerns or said how they were trying to blow off certain behaviors of hers to keep the peace,” Jacqueline reveals on her Bravo blog. “I watched them at times trying to mend things with Teresa, but Teresa was never sincerely giving them an honest effort to resolve their differences.”
On recent episodes, Joe Gorga, Teresa’s brother, has made a few desperate attempts to reconcile with Teresa, but she refuses. He even suggested they try therapy together but Teresa won’t even consider it! All that Jacqueline is seeing on television is helping her realize that Teresa isn’t someone she wants in life.
Jacqueline also became emotionally drained while trying to help Teresa. “It became difficult hearing the same complaints and her irrational thoughts about her family over and over again, when she wasn’t willing to take any accountability for her own wrong doings or give an honest effort to fix things.” Fans even saw Teresa announce that she 110% doesn’t need therapy on last week’s episode.
When only one person wants to fix a relationship, how could it possibly ever work out? Although Joe may never get to see the sister he one knew return, he is doing what he can do — and everyone knows it! Jacqueline says, “He was man enough to want to go to therapy to mend things. He was man enough to be willing to accept some of the blame. He loves his sister and I could feel that.”
