EXCLUSIVE: ‘RHONJ’ Jacqueline Laurita Fighting With Dolores Cantina & Teresa Giudice Uses The “R” Word

Filming for The Real Housewives of New Jersey has wrapped, and rumors are swirling around a cast, splintered by drama.

Jacqueline Laurita is in the center of the chatter, with reports asserting that the finale taping caught her at odds with co-stars, Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, and even rookie, Dolores Catania. Jacqueline busted Teresa Giudice on Twitter, on Friday — for using some form of the word “retarded,” during the taping of the final episode of the season. 

Many viewers might assume that a mouthing-off Giudice, may have tossed  out the term as an inappropriate reference to Laurita’s autistic son, Nicholas. Our exclusive insider clarifies that such a scenario was not the case.

Teresa directed the word at Jacqueline. Jacqueline finds the term disgusting, and Teresa knows it. Teresa is very aware of how Jacqueline feels about that word.”

Recent reports claim that Laurita is also fighting with cast newbie, Dolores Catania. Our source clarifies,

“Not true. Jacqueline and Dolores had a little misunderstanding about a senseless direction that production asked Dolores to take. It had nothing to do with anything related to Melissa or Teresa. It was an unimportant, minor incident, and the two got past it quickly. They are on very good terms.”

Twitter backs our source, where tweets between the ladies prove that all is good with their friendship.

Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashlee Holmes, is set the reveal the gender of her baby, and Flicker and Catania, are evidently invited to the big event.

The season has wrapped—and fans now await a premiere date. Will you be watching?

  • bren

    I loathe Jacqueline

    • Wimbledonwoman

      Me too

  • RHONJ Fan

    Thanks for the clarification, Tea. I’m relieved to read Teresa did not use the r word in regards to Nicholas. Also, pleased that Dolores and Jacqueline worked out their differences.

    • Sandy Wood

      The R word is never appropriate in reference to ANYONE.
      I think Tre has “forehead envy” of Jac.

      • RHONJ Fan

        You’re absolutely correct. I don’t believe I posted the use of the r word was appropriate, so I’m not sure why you’re attacking me.

        • Sandy Wood

          That was not an attack…you stated that you were relieved it was not directed at Nicholas, indicating it might be OK against Jac….that’s the way I interpreted your remark. Apologies if I am mistaken.

          • RHONJ Fan

            My comment in no way implied the word was ok to be used on Jacqueline. Please don’t make false statements about my comments. Apology accepted.

        • Blackheath

          I didn’t take it as it is ok to use the word on Jaq. I hope no one looks at my comment above and thinks the same cause I certainly don’t think that and I know you don’t either.

          • RHONJ Fan

            Thank you, Blackheath. I’m not reading your comment above as you’re in way condoning the use of the word. Good comment.

          • Blackheath

            Here is the thing, I only know you and everyone else from how your posts and I know you would not condone use of the R word, this I know. Maybe I am the type that looks at everyone with rose colored glass or gullible but I can pretty much say that 95% of the people who comment here would not use the R word themselves or condone it. While everyone may have different views of who they like and don’t like, I think we all share the same view about using offensive terms like the R word or any other socially and politically incorrect term that is out there. For the other 5%, the crew here would school them in a heartbeat! Saw someone last week get schooled about race and they were amazingly quiet afterwards.
            As for Teresa using the R word, I would not be surprised if she was using it in a fashion very much like her husband Joe used the term gay when he was dancing with Danielle that one time many moons ago. Not condoning it, just a thought.

      • JMMW

        Which one of Jac’s foreheads would she be envious of? I think she’s had a couple since her original…bwahahahaha.

      • MidwestMiddie

        “forehead envy”
        ROFL

      • Bad Barbie

        I guarantee you that many people call Tre worst stuff than that but that’s ok cause she broke the law and it is a felon. She is in fact low rent but these fans are so funny and apply 2 sets of rules. You see people on social media wishing harm on the Giudices kids and people laugh at it and say they deserve it. SMH

    • JustSayin

      I agree, it’s good to know she wasn’t directing it at Nicholas. Not that that makes it okay (as you already clarified below), but if it HAD been directed at Nicholas, it would have made it that much worse.

      • RHONJ Fan

        Agreed and that was the only point I was making before I was scolded below.

  • Blackheath

    Alright, maybe it’s me. Did Tre use the R word or not. I am super confused (maybe it’s having a cold that is making me fuzzy).
    The exclusive insider clarifies that such a scenario is not the case but then goes on to quote “Teresa directed the word at Jaq, etc.”
    Sorry to be daft but did Tre use the word or not?

    • Blackheath

      Ok, it is definitely the cold that is making me fuzzy. I got it now. It was thought that Tre directed the word to Nicholas when it was directed to Jaq. Got it now. I had to read and re-read several times. I think today I will just read and not comment.

      • Blackheath

        Just so there is no confusion, I don’t condone the use of the R word in any way shape or form, I was confused whether Tre used the word at all.

  • Bryan

    Jacks was six sheets to the wind as usual

  • Lila

    I’ll be watching out of curiosity. But not sure I’ll stick around.

    • Blackheath

      Me too!

  • Chloe

    After reading Jacqueline’s tweet she implied the word was used against Nicholas. That’s just wrong.

  • Wimbledonwoman

    Jacqueline was a bitch to her daughter in the early seasons, I could never understand how a mother could do that . I was done with her after that .

    • JustSayin

      Her parenting was very passive aggressive when it came to her daughter.

      • Just a jersey girl

        Extremely I give Ashlee a pass on allot because when she appeared on the show in early seasons she was at a very vulnerable age.
        I am not a fan of Jac at all. I do wish Ashlee well

      • Wimbledonwoman

        So much repressed anger and slagging her off to the manzoids all the time .

  • Mags

    No…I won’t be watching! It’s a matter of principle with me about glorifying a criminal who shows no remorse or has any interest in making things right with her victims. She has never admitted her wrongs, still lying and blaming the government.

  • itsjustme

    The fact Tree would use that word at all I find repulsive. I had a cousin who was mentally impaired and find anyone using that word for any reason reprehensible. That just shows what a truly horrid person she is. NO I WILL NOT BE WATCHING!!!

  • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

    Why would Tre be calling Jacqueline a racist? I thought Jac was Italian as well.

  • Mags

    Let’s face it……of course, Teresa uses that word and many other offensive words. She is uneducated with a very low IQ and that’s how she and her husband fill in the blanks. Prison only made it worst I’m sure. Ghetto trash!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yep!

    • Bad Barbie

      And you think Jackie doesn’t use offensive words? Lol

  • WestCoastFeed

    Of course Jac is especially sensitive to that word. We have seen it here used in reference to Nicholas and his autism.

    • Mags

      Ditto WCF! 😉

      • WestCoastFeed

        Mags, did you have me confused with some other poster yesterday on the BH thread? I have never been a felon fan.

    • Dana

      Give it a rest. It’s just a word and Teresa can use it as she sees fit.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Hopefully others call TreApe, the Cable Felon, as often as possible. It’s just
      a title and an honest one at that.

      • Bad Barbie

        But you are calling her an Ape already so …

        • MidwestMiddie

          TreApe has been around for as long as she’s been on Bravo and
          I’m sorry that I can’t take credit for it.
          Cable Felon is a new name for her but actually both fit her
          perfectly.

  • Just a jersey girl

    The word is inappropriate to use, but when I was young it was meant in slang use to be a moron. Teresa should have know better, not a good word to use today.

    • Bad Barbie

      Actually the word is very freely used today.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Not in most places ……where have you been?

        • Bad Barbie

          I have been living here in NYC and hear it all the damn time used like it is nothing.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I don’t live in NYC but have been there many times. Perhaps you
            should hang out in better locations. Just saying …… because
            it isn’t ……..nothing!

          • jane

            Bad Barbie can’t help hearing that word and a lot of other offensive ones in NYC even if she did hang out in “better locations”. I am proud to say I am from New York, but not proud of a lot of what comes out of the mouths of my fellow New Yorkers. All you have to do is get on a subway, bus, or in a cab, sit in a restaurant, or just walk the streets and you will hear profanity left and right. Not saying it’s right; just saying that it does exist. And, unfortunately, it probably exists elsewhere in the country as well

          • MidwestMiddie

            Agree.

          • Bad Barbie

            Locations are totally fine. People don’t really live all day everyday trying to be politically correct as you may assume. Just turn on your TV and go watch the nomination debates.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’m aware of the word being used. I hate hearing it and hope you feel the same way.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Are gender reveal parties the thing now? I had never heard of anyone doing that before. It’s a cute excuse to have a party and share the happiness over the coming event.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      I recall at least one on a HW show (can’t remember which now), but they opened a big box of balloons to reveal the gender.

      • Bad Barbie

        Breanna- Vicky’s daughter.

        • SassyMcAsspants

          Yes, thank you. Vicki was so busy being Icky she almost ruined the whole thing.

          • Nick’s daughter

            😂 and the scorecard says…Sassy 1, Vicki 0
            Good one, Sassy! 😉

          • SassyMcAsspants

            Thanks, ND 🙂

      • Perturbed

        Hey Sassy, I saw your response to one of my comments but don’t remember which article it was – lol!

    • Bad Barbie

      Yep. So corny too. I see these all the time in social media BUT… where that Bridal shower though? LOL

  • WestCoastFeed

    A picture surfaced from this final taping showing four of the cast, Melissa, Teresa, Dolores, and Siggy, along with their production teams. No Jac in the picture. Also no Robyn. Jac, however, did tweet about how nice it was having her production team spend the rest of the day with her. I do hope that Jac is not going to be edited as the villain this year.

  • toolate2care2000

    Why is calling someone “stupid, an idiot, a moron, etc.” which we seem to be able to use all the time – any better then calling someone retarded? Not that many years ago a correct term referring to people with low IQ’s was retarded. I think I’d rather be called slower then the norm then a moron or idiot!

    • JustSayin

      The meanings of words change as society evolves. I know at one time retard was actually used to describe people with mental handicaps (handicap – another word that is no longer PC), although when I was a kid it was just slang for stupid and no one with any decency would EVER have used it to refer to someone with an actual disability.

      The times, they are a changing. I kinda can’t stand the over PC-ification of the our society. Can’t say walk in closet, cuz not everyone can walk; can’t say disabled, now it’s differently-abled, or whatever the hell. Personally, I think some people just sit around and look for shit to be offended by.

      • sideof Sour Cream

        The false outrage over the word “retarded” is a huge pet peeve of mine. So for that reason I try to use it as often as possible! LOL! jk, but it does fit into my little uprising against the stifling PC-ness we’ve all had to endure for the last 20 years or so. If it fits I’ll use it, I’m not going to be shamed into not using a legit word if it works for the situation.
        But on that note, Jax is not retarded imo, not even close.

        • JustSayin

          Lol I feel you, and I’ve been back and forth on this one myself. I can understand the argument for not using the word gay on a derogatory manner, since it is also used to indicate ones sexual preference. “Don’t misuse to word gay, it offends the gays.” Now try that with the word retard, kinda fucked up right?

          But I understand that it’s a hurtful word, and the idea of anyone using it against someone with an actual disability…it’s infuriating. I just don’t understand how people can be so deliberately hurtful, especially to innocents.

          • sideof Sour Cream

            ITA JS. obviously yes decent people shouldn’t be calling each other names. But in PC-land, calling someone a cock-sucking-mother-fucker doesn’t cause half the outrage as just SAYING the word retarded. It’s SENSELESS! LOL!

        • Bad Barbie

          Jax is more than retarded. She has no real medical reason to act the fool she does…

          • sideof Sour Cream

            To me she is the typical party girl who starts to lose it when her looks wane. & She drinks too much to be on a show like this.

          • Bad Barbie

            She admitted this herself that she takes xanax with wine. She has a child with special needs that she drops off at a 10hr program. When is she all day every day dedicated to his needs?

            I actually save my sympathy for the regular hard working families that have children with needs. Not this family that spent $230k body make-over, and swindled investors out of over $50mill in personal expenses. They were crying that Nic’s therapy was going to be over $6mill but she flossing a new Rolls Royce. These people have no education and no real careers… you think the Giudices are the only scammers there? WRONG!

          • sideof Sour Cream

            Oh I’m with ya Barbie. One of the reasons I will continue to watch this show is to see when or if the shit hits the fan for the rest of them.

            My gut feeling is that Jax misses events & reunions not because she is “mad” or “uncomfortable”, it’s because she’s either too messed up or hungover to function.
            She’s awfully puffy for a busy rich lady. (and I use the term rich loosely here 🙂

          • Bad Barbie

            I really pity Nic. He has to deal with this lady and all those cameras around because she refuses to give it up.

          • sideof Sour Cream

            She can’t afford to give it up.

          • jane

            Jacs using Nicholas to further her public persona has always sickened me. I have friends in Jersey within the autistic community who have told me there are those who go to great lengths to avoid her and want nothing to do with her or her putting her name out there to further their efforts.
            Jacs should thank her lucky stars she lives in NJ where people can get the best support and services for children with autisim. I personally know of 4 families who specifically moved to Jersey for that very reason. Gave up beautiful homes and lifestyles so that they could get the help they needed because they couldn’t afford it on their own.

      • jane

        Completely agree!!!

      • Bad Barbie

        99.99% is not even used towards a person with an actual disability but a perfect normal human who deliberately behaves a certain way. The same way that the N word is not used in the derogatory context and not even towards a certain race or color.

    • Bad Barbie

      Yeah, I don’t get it either. Like there are levels to it.

    • Melba59

      I’m a little groggy since I had a medical procedure this am, so forgive me if I make less sense than normal. I have a child and a nephew with Down Syndrome, and before either were born began a lifelong career working with people who had a dual diagnosis: intellectual disability and mental health. I am aware the medical term is still “mentally retarded”. If someone called me a “retard” it would roll off my back, as would the term “moron” “stupid” whatever. The term does not hurt the person it is directed to, unless that person indeed has a disability. But that term thrown at me or whomever affects my child and all people with an intellectual disability, b/c it denotes them as less than or a bad thing. Even if they don’t hear or understand the term, it is offensive to them and all who love them

      • Nick’s daughter

        Take care & rest up…Feel better, Melba! 😷
        Bless you for your comment & for advocating for your child & your nephew.

    • Perturbed

      This is just my opinion, but I think it’s because certain words have evolved in meaning, as Jane said earlier. For example, to me, words like: idiot, moron, imbecile, have entered the mainstream lexicon, and are used interchangeably with “jerk”. Whereas a word like “retard” is too closely associated with what is still used for a person who truly has a medical condition of being ” intellectually disabled”. I would NEVER knowingly diminish a truly disabled person by using that word as an insult. That’s yet ANOTHER reason why Teresa Giudice is a despicable person.

  • WestCoastFeed

    The Giudice rental home in Franklin Lakes went back to the bank for $100 since there were no bidders for it at the sheriff’s auction. Now, I read elsewhere, that the bank will send Teresa a 1099 form for the amount still owed on the house. The IRS considers that amount as income. Is that how it works? I am a complete naive when it comes to financial matters like this.

    • UndergroundExpress

      If it is a 1099A or 1099C then yes it is considered income because it is forgiven debt. The IRS looks at it as income since you are not responsible for paying it back. Unless insolvency is proven.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Thanks, so they are going to have to pay taxes on hundreds of thousands of dollars (counting both of the houses they have lost this year) and they will have to declare it as income even though they are not getting a dime for either house.

        • UndergroundExpress

          Yes

          • WestCoastFeed

            Why am I smiling?

          • UndergroundExpress

            Lol

          • WestCoastFeed

            And her lawyer is going to try to call it more downsizing and cutting down on expenses. I love spin doctoring.

          • UndergroundExpress

            Like Jacqueline selling her house because of Nicholas. Insert side eye.

          • Nick’s daughter

            Ok 😒 😞 here they are! 😉

    • SMDRN66

      I don’t think the bank can keep the house and make the Guidices’ pay for it at the same time. If the house was sold and they got more than the bank loan, then the bank would have to pay them that amount. That would be a capital gain and taxable income. The bank can’t have its cake and eat it too.

      • WestCoastFeed

        See Underground Express’ explanation below. It’s not about the bank trying to collect for the house. It’s about notifying the IRS how much forgiven debt that the Juicys are getting.

        • SMDRN66

          But they don’t still own the house. I understand they are writing off the mortgage, but they still have the value of the house. It’s like buying a house for $150,000.00 and making payments. As the owner, you have the value of the home. The bank takes the home back, so you don’t have that value anymore. The bank has that value. So they aren’t ‘giving’ you a $150k benefit. You have no vested interest or stake in that house.

          • UndergroundExpress

            That is the thing. There is no value in the house anymore because they borrowed against it more than the value or its worth.

  • RonnieRIB

    Teresa is a moron….simply put.

    They all need to focus on their family….NJ is dead…

    • Bad Barbie

      How you think they are going to pay for that new Rolls Royce she got? The Laurita’s are not even that “wealthy”. They are like hood-rich.

      • sideof Sour Cream

        jinx! I just said sort of the same thing about their *richness* below.

      • That was a day rental or something…that’s not their car.

    • Nick’s daughter

      Amen, RonnieRIB!! I just 💙 your avi-Snoopy 😊.

  • Bad Barbie

    Wait! ASSLEE is pregnant?

    Jackie is REMEDIAL for sure though.

    • jane

      She recently became engaged and then in a wink of an eye, announced the impending bundle of joy. Interesting that she is already having a gender reveal party given you need to be approximately 4-5 months along in order to take the test. Not sure if the math all adds up but it certainly does appear she is following in her mother’s footsteps. Just being snarky. . .in this day and age, this has become more the norm than not.

      • Bad Barbie

        Oh wow. I don’t keep up with her family no more. Last time I saw Ashlee she looked nothing like herself from all the surgeries she got.

      • KKLS30

        You can find out gender earlier than that with a blood test now. Although I’m pretty guessing this was a case of pregnancy preceding engagement.

        • jane

          Wow, that is so interesting! I assume it is pretty accurate too, I guess. That is amazing! Thanks for the info!

          • KKLS30

            Yeah at 7 weeks the accuracy for a baby boy is 95.4% and for a girl it is 98.6%. It is a free cell DNA test that can determine paternity,if the baby is a hemophiliac,RH factors, Duchennes muscular dystrophy,and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. It can prevent unnecessary testing too which can risk a pregnancy like the CVS tests or an amnio. For instance if you are worried about a gender related disorder that only male babies have an early test that shows you are having a girl eliminates the need for more invasive testing. Pretty cool.

          • jane

            It is more than Pretty Cool! It is really Awesome!! they can determine all of this now at such an early stage in pregnancy. Again, thanks so much for this info!!

    • I know! We just found out she’s pregnant last week and already a gender reveal?…

  • jane

    The word “retard” has become a victim of what is called euphemism treadmill, meaning that whatever a term that is used for a certain condition, situation, or even group of people, (for example, the “n” word or the phrase “that is so gay”), will eventually become offensive and will be replaced. The actual real meaning of the word is “delay or hold back in terms of progress, development, or accomplishment”.
    The words “mentally retarded” became used and acceptable in the middle of the 20th century to replace “idiot” and imbecile” which had become viewed as insulting by society. Now “mentally retarded” has become politically incorrect and is deemed offensive. The new vernacular that will be used by the WHO in its revision of its codes is “intellectual disability”. The term “mental retardation” is still used in some scientific research in order to maintain clarity and specificity in certain conditions. There is also a movement to coin the euphemism “differently-abled”.
    Just as the word “gay” has evolved from meaning “lighthearted, happy” to being another word for someone who is a homosexual, words will continue to evolve.

    • sideof Sour Cream

      Damn girl that’s some professorial posting! 🙂

      • jane

        LOL!! I love words. (Two of my favorite are “believe” and “grace”.) I can usually tell if something is grammatically correct but for the life of me, cannot say why; I can’t explain what a dangling participle is either, but I do know what a run on sentence is. I am a whiz at crossword puzzles and I am pretty good at knowing the meanings too. But I have to say, one of my biggest pet peeves when going on websites and I read comments is when the “grammar and punctuation police” come out in full force. So ridiculous; these comment boards are not exactly college application essays!! Thanks for the compliment, SofCC!!

        • sideof Sour Cream

          Me too with the grammar police. The only time it’s appropriate to correct someone’s grammar is if the person is your child or student. (or husband, lol)
          & I love words as well. I can get lost in a thesaurus.

    • Digitus impudicus

      I’m in my late 40s, and it was perfectly ok to use the word “retarded” to mean stunted growth. Especially in science classes. Sure, us kids hurled it at each other back in the 70s and 80s, but nobody had a meltdown over it. It’s a generational word and I agree, Jane, it is a victim of euphemism treadmill.

      • Blackheath

        Well said!

    • SMDRN66

      Actually, idiot, imbecile, and moron were used to clarify 3 levels of mental retardation based on IQ score. I decided a long time ago to stop being politically correct. If someone gets offended by a word I use, that’s on that person. I work in mental health and MR or mental retardation is still used although the trend is moving to ID (intellectual disability) or DD (developmentally disabled). They are also moving to more specific conditions like Autism. The number of Autism diagnosis have increased and it’s pretty close to the decrease in mental retardation diagnosis. Kids who were just thought of as shy, weird, and quirky now have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

      And forget nicknaming your son Richard as Dick.

      • jane

        Richard is a family name that was passed down generationally in my friend’s family. She named her son Richard and the poor kid was relentlessly teased so now he goes by his middle name. I highly doubt that tradition of carrying on the name will carry through to his kids. What a shame.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      We use the word “retard” as a verb in the medical field all the time (as in retarded growth, etc). It’s one thing when it is used properly in a sentence- it’s another when it’s used to call someone a name, just like any other derogatory word. That’s the only time I have a problem with it. I agree- there are always words that will offend someone and our language is constantly changing. It’s hard to keep up!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Another lawsuit has been settled. With the results sealed, of course. The Greeks civil suit against Bravo, Sirens, Joe Gorga and the Lauritas, etc. is finished. Does that explain the vindictive tweet that Penny Drosso sent a few days ago?

    • What did Penny tweet about it? thanks 🙂

        I’m not sure it was about the lawsuit, but Penny does not tweet very often. I fail copy and paste, so I’ll rewrite it–

        “You can run but you will never be able to hide. Look over your shoulder, worry at every corner, loose (sic) sleep for fear of me. I will find you mother fucker and when I do a day of reckoning will happen. God is forgiving…I am not a God.”

        • WestCoastFeed

          I should make clear. That was a quote from something called “whisper.” Penny’s own remarks that prefaced it were, “I don’t ever forget!!! I will find you, no worries.”

        • Whoa, go Penny!

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m not on twitter and don’t quite understand it. But Penny follows Teresa. And I think she probably just added her recently. Does that indicate anything?

          • UndergroundExpress

            Penny should be on the show too. Why does bravo miss out on the real drama? Kai Patterson, Kim G? Come on!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I’d like to see some of the victims speak out about the Giudices…

          • Not sure what that means either but would guess that Penny is just trying to keep her eye on that crazy heifa.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Wow…what’s that all about?
          Is that from when they had that big brawl?

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just am not sure. Penny has indicated in some tweets that she knows that Teresa used her in the past. It could be she’s still angry and Bravo and those who were in the brawl with Johnny, but it may also be resentment toward Teresa.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            This could get interesting…. Lol
            Wasn’t that the incident where someone threw a shoe at someone? I’m not sure what that whole situation was about either.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, Johnny claimed Teresa hit him with her spiked heel. She denied that. The tales of that brawl got pretty funny, with tales of sinks ripped from the wall and sent flying, blood on the walls. And now we will never know because the court has sealed it all. Rats!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Omg! I didn’t know all that drama went down!
            If the case is over, maybe Penny or her husband will start squawking on Twitter. I’m sure she would give an interview if the price was right, but they can only speak about it if it’s been settled.

          • WestCoastFeed

            It has been settled and the settlement was sealed. So no one involved can speak about it.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Oh ok. I thought once the case was settled, they would be allowed to talk about it. Usually, you are not allowed to talk about it while it’s under litigation in court, but I thought afterwards, it’s fair game. They can still give their opinions on it.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Joe Gorga’s lawyer confirmed that the suit had been settled but said the “terms were confidential” I figured that means that none of the parties can talk about it. I need Stacy to correct or confirm.

          • Oh, I thought it was Jacqueline that hit Johnny with her stiletto heel. I also thought Penny and and Teresa were old friends. Teresa was using Penny this whole time? Color me shocked, lol!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Damn, I keep mixing the names up. Yes, it was Jac who she said hit Johnny with her heel. Sorry about that. I am having senior moments today. And they happen more and more frequently with e.

  • Melba59

    Just when I thought I couldn’t hate Teresa more, yeah, I can. What a complete waste of space

    • Marcy Scrot

      She’s another OC Vickie….nothing is her fault, everyone is against her and lying, she’s sweet and demure and no one has any reason to not like her. Barf.

  • Anica1

    I saw the clip on Bravo of Theresa coming home for the first time and it was quite touching. As much as people say they hate her, I know they will be watching just like I will……

    • JustSayin

      Lol that’s one of those speak for yourself type situations. I know I won’t be watching.

      • Anica1

        Not even the clip of Tre coming home?…you are stronger than me….

        • JustSayin

          I have a hard time watching those videos of the men and women of our armed forces coming home and surprising their kids at school or something – those always bring a tear to my eye. But watching Teresa come home from prison…not so much.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Same here, JS! 🙂
        You couldn’t pay me to watch this crapfest.

    • SQUIRREL_PANTS

      i agree Anica– i’ve always liked Teresa, i’ve always wished her well, and i certainly WILL be watching RHONJ– rooting for her!

      • Anica1

        Yeah…she always brings the drama….with her temper…and her girls…

      • Marsbars09

        Hey squirrel! Welcome to the site!

        • SQUIRREL_PANTS

          hey hey Marsie!! thank you SO much! i’m super glad to see you! <3

  • UndergroundExpress

    Maybe “r” is for rental. As in she couldn’t afford that rolls Royce so she just rented it.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Just like a Rentley…lol

  • Marsbars09

    Jac reminds me of a 3 year old who throws a tantrum when they don’t like something. She’s got to be one of the most immature, illogical wives of the franchise. I can’t stand her.

    • Thank you! She’s obsessed with this woman. Notice, the only time she’s ever relevant is when she’s talking about Teresa. Can’t stand her.

      • Carrie Markos

        I agree and am surprised whenever I see people defending Jacqueline! She is such a whining and annoying woman! Jacqueline is quite the troublemaker, yet she “always” tries to play the victim!

        I find it very ironic that in ALL seasons past, Jacqueline (literally) would hide to avoid being involved in the aftermath of controversy (of which she usually always had a hand in creating); however, THIS season, Jacqueline seems to want to (all of a sudden) be “a tough girl” and “show the world” that she isn’t the wimp we all know she “really” is! Lol

        With that being said, I find it interesting that Jacqueline does all of this when Teresa is out on parole and wearing an ankle monitor…so must stay out of any sort of trouble! I would like to have seen Jacqueline try to say/do the things she is this season during some of the seasons in the past!

        Teresa easily may have put her hands on Jacqueline…showing her who the “real tough girl” is! Is it all immature? Absolutely! Is it all classless and unladylike? Without a doubt! Unfortunately, however, there are times when a person can bring a side of someone out (that otherwise remains tucked nicely way in a box where it should be) because that person decides they are going to try to act tough.

        In a perfect world, everyone would get along (or at least act like “a lady” amidst the controversy), but unfortunately, not everyone has the IQ and/or enough maturity to behave appropriately. Therefore, it is during such instances that dealing with this particular personality type can cause the “reaction” of the type of behavior that they can understand.

        • Absolutely agree with everything you said. ALL these women are too old for this shit. They’re all guilty of one thing or another, but it absolutely blows my mind how Jacqueline stirs the pot, hides her hand, and nobody calls her out for anything. She’s no martyr saint. The woman is batshit crazy, she loves drama, she’s just as financially, if not more, irresponsible than Teresa, only thing is, she doesn’t have a jail stint to prove it, and is exactly why I stopped watching this show.

    • Carrie Markos

      I can’t stand her either! She is a very jealous and insecure woman!

  • KKLS30

    Jax should just hit T where it hurts with her most feared “r” words: repossession and restitution.

  • I bet Jacqueline has a secret shrine for Teresa in her house. It’s the same shit season after season, not jut with her, but with all of these heifers. Can we get some new people?

  • Karate kid

    Ashley used the word on season 3.

    • Carrie Markos

      Yes, Jacqueline’s daughter has used that same word before! You are so correct! Jacqueline is the biggest hypocrite, and this is proof of just one of many times that she will point her finger at someone at someone (expecting everyone to despise the person once they find out) while the same (or similar) action(s) were said/done by her or a member of her family!

  • WestCoastFeed

    I checked Penny’s time line this morning and her animus is toward Teresa. She is indeed harboring a grudge. Sorry that I kept mixing up names yesterday. Some days the old synapses in my brain seem to get short-circuited and I do stuff like that.

  • Arielle

    jacqueline seems to go through a lot

  • cat

    I have a grandson that has autism and the one trigger I have is the R word. I would have taken my fist and punched Teresa in the face. She wouldn’t make the mistake again. Screw her no one knows how hard it is unless she have a family member or raising a child with Autism. Teresa is nothing nothing she’s a big POS. There is no excuse no excuse she’s a ignorant moron a animal.
