Jacqueline Laurita decided to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey this year because she wanted to work on her friendship with Teresa Giudice. Laurita was emotional when she learned that Teresa would be serving 13 months behind bars for her fraudulent business behavior. But Jacqueline never went to visit Teresa, as Giudice wanted to keep her distance from her and only focus on her family members who were supportive of her.
According to a new Bravo report, Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that she wanted to get everyone together. While she had worked out her issues with Teresa, Jacqueline wanted to settle the feud between Teresa and her cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. Laurita knows how Giudice doesn’t want to talk to Rosie and Kathy because she was upset at what was said about her sentencing.

Kathy and Rosie’s mother said that when someone does something wrong, they have to pay for their mistakes. And Giudice took it personally. Jacqueline Laurita reveals that she wanted to bring Rosie and Kathy to Giudice’s book signing in hopes that they could talk. She didn’t mean to set up her friend, but it was clear that the mother of four felt set up and surprised to see her cousins. After this incident, Jacqueline decided to step back.
“That’s when I decided it was time for me to take a step back and let them resolve things themselves on their own time. It just bothers me so much when I see my friends hurting. I just wanted to help them. It’s who I am. My heart was in the right place,” Jacqueline Laurita revealed on her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, sharing that she didn’t want to get involved anymore.

During Sunday’s episode, Jacqueline Laurita got together with Wakile, Pierri, Melissa, and Joe Gorga where they discussed their issues with Teresa. It is clear that her cousins are very upset with the way they aren’t included in family events, but Laurita may be able to see it from her friend’s perspective. It’s not fun to go through the stress and have people require more from you than you are willing to give.

“After our discussion, Melissa and Joe hung out with all of us at Kathy’s and we had a great time with each other until 1:00 in the morning. There didn’t seem to be any hard feelings at all between anyone. It was nice,” Jacqueline Laurita explains on her blog, sharing that the yelling match that took place only happened for a few minutes and the rest of the night was fun and peaceful.

“There have been worse conflicts in Teresa’s family that have been resolved, so I think there’s always hope for Kathy, Rosie, and Teresa. When I heard Teresa had a breakdown after talking to Kathy and Rosie and Teresa saying that her doors are always open, it showed me there’s still love there and one day it could possibly mend. Where there is hurt, there is love. I hope one day their family becomes whole again. I sincerely do,” Laurita points out on her blog, sharing that she hopes they can all get together and solve their issues as they had done once before.

Giudice, on the other hand, doesn’t seem too eager to work things out with her cousins. It’s a miracle that she even gave Jacqueline Laurita a second chance after their argument in Laurita’s kitchen, where she downright called Teresa a criminal. And as fans will see in future episodes, it won’t be the last time it happens.
What do you think of Jacqueline Laurita’s decision to push Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri on her friend?
