Jacqueline Laurita decided to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey this season after the ratings took a dip. Last season, Laurita decided to leave the show alongside Kathy Wakile and Caroline Manzo. These women felt they had done everything possible to reconcile with their friend, Teresa Giudice.
Jacqueline Laurita returned to the show just in time for Teresa Giudice’s plea deal. On yesterday’s episode, Laurita texted Teresa with Kathy’s support, revealing that she was thinking about her and that she would be there if she needed a friend. But another interesting topic came up during Laurita’s conversation with Kathy Wakile – Dina Manzo.
According to a new Real Mr. Housewife report, Jacqueline Laurita didn’t show interest in speaking with Dina Manzo. Of course, Dina is the sister to Laurita’s husband, Chris. And both of them are Caroline Manzo’s siblings. In other words, this family is split down the middle. But Jacqueline hasn’t closed the door on reconciling with Dina.
“Currently there is no relationship between us, but only because she chooses not to have one. It’s frustrating because I feel like it’s all petty, nonsense stuff, that all just seems silly and unimportant to me. I have other, more important things to focus on, although, I’m always open to reconciliation with people that are willing and sincere,” Jacqueline reveals about her broken friendship with Dina Manzo.
“My husband is probably the most hurt by Dina. Maybe one day we can heal as a family like the Gorgas and Giudices did. Miracles have happened on #RHONJ. All it takes is for both parties to want it at the same time and be sincere about wanting it. (That’s the key)” Laurita adds.
It sounds like Jacqueline Laurita is putting the ball in Dina’s court to make up. Caroline Manzo has said the same thing. Dina, however, has shown little interest in making up with her siblings. The truth behind the rivalry has never been made public as they refuse to discuss family issues on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. However, there have been speculations that Teresa Giudice was right in the middle of it all.
According to the Inquisitr, Jacqueline Laurita had been watching this season before she came back. Just a few weeks ago, Jacqueline shared her thoughts about the cheating rumor that surfaced about Teresa Aprea’s husband Rino and her own mother, Santa. Jacqueline didn’t pass judgment, but did feel that family should be off limits.
