Teresa Giudice was quite hurt after her former best friend, Jacqueline Laurita, decided to call her a criminal during a trip to Vermont on this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Teresa had expected some form of understanding from Laurita, who kept saying that she wanted to make peace and move on. But Laurita clearly had some issues she wanted to bring up, including how Melissa Gorga and Teresa had become super close friends. She felt left out and her hurt clearly surfaced during a dinner in Vermont. Now, Giudice is getting tired of giving Jacqueline second chances and she has decided that their friendship isn’t worth pursuing.
According to a new Bravo report, Teresa Giudice is now revealing that she’s asked Jacqueline to please leave both her and her family alone. Giudice could be referring to her four daughters, but she could also be referring to her extended family, which includes Melissa Gorga. As it turns out, Teresa Giudice just doesn’t want to be hurt anymore by Jacqueline, who clearly had a mission to bring down Giudice.

“When you really hurt someone, I think it’s hard to go back. It’s like a marriage. Like, when your husband cheats on you, it’s hard to go — some women forgive, and I guess I did kind of forgive her because I did accept her back into my life when I came home, but then she hurt me again and again,” Teresa Giudice explained to Bravo recently at an event, sharing that she doesn’t want to hang around people who want to hurt her.

Maybe Giudice learned a thing or two about Jacqueline after watching this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as she learned that Jacqueline still stays in touch with Kim D. who has purposefully tried to hurt the family before. Laurita and Kim D. also tried to make Teresa hate Melissa Gorga again by pointing to her store assistant Derek, who may have filmed Teresa taking cash for books at an event, which got her into a lot of trouble. But Teresa Giudice trusts that Melissa wants the best for her and she wants Jacqueline to leave her alone.

“And you know what? I’m in a good place right now, and I just don’t want that around me. I don’t want any negative people around me. I just want positive people that are happy, people that are happy for me, not people that want to hurt me,” Teresa Giudice explained to Bravo, adding, “I wish her the best. I wish her all good things in her life. That’s what I just told her, I said, ‘Just please leave me and my family alone.’”

The ladies recently got together to film the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, so one has to wonder if Teresa Giudice and Laurita got to discuss some of their issues. At present time on the show, Giudice is starting to create some distance between herself and Laurita, possibly because she already feels that she can’t trust her friend. So, what can fans expect from the reunion? Well, Giudice isn’t sharing too much.

“It’s definitely a reunion you don’t want to miss,” Giudice told Bravo, teasing that the reunion special will definitely be an interesting one for both herself and Jacqueline.
Maybe it is during this reunion where Teresa will tell Jacqueline to calm down and leave her alone instead of chasing her around as much as she does with the criminal accusations.
What do you think of Teresa Giudice’s wish that Jacqueline just leave her and her family alone? Do you think this will happen if both ladies come back for another season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
