Jacqueline Laurita Finally Shares Her Side Of The Dolores Catania Drama

Jacqueline Laurita was accused of causing drama with Dolores Catania on this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as Catania told Siggy Flicker that Jacqueline had completely flipped out on her. This caused Dolores to yell at Laurita, calling her all kinds of names. This fight was discussed between Dolores and Siggy on the second last episode of the season and on the season finale, the two ladies didn’t get to talk about their issues. While Catania opened up about the incident in her Bravo blog, Laurita didn’t talk about it – until now.

According to a new Bravo report, Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that she was merely protecting herself as she felt that Catania tried to set her up. Laurita was convinced that her co-star was trying to set her up, so she tried to protect herself. Some of the drama played out on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but essentially Jacqueline didn’t go to Dolores’ party due to illness. Even though Laurita had already said she wasn’t going, she was rattled when Dolores called her and asked her whether she was going to the event.

“I told her how I felt on a text and fell back to sleep. Apparently she tried calling me after that and thought I was purposely ignoring her so she left me a pretty nasty text that I saw the next day. That annoyed me even more. I was wondering what the heck was going on! I told our mutual friend about what happened and then I decided to just let it go at that point and just try to get some rest to shake off this flu I had,” Jacqueline Laurita revealed in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

While some of the ladies weren’t surprised that Jacqueline Laurita lashed out at her co-star, it sounds like Dolores was shocked that her own friend would think that she was setting her up. So she decided to talk to Siggy about it, as she really wanted to talk about it with someone else and get some feedback on how to handle Laurita in this situation.

“Apparently, Dolores was also venting to our mutual friends about our fight,” Jacqueline Laurita pointed out in her blog, adding, “I just didn’t think our misunderstanding had to spread so quickly and publicly the way it did. In my opinion, too many people were getting involved.”

The two ladies didn’t get to talk about their issues on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as Jacqueline Laurita walked out of the final meeting. She was upset when she couldn’t even talk to Teresa Giudice alone, so she would prefer not to make an effort. It will be interesting to see who is in her corner on the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.

But Jacqueline Laurita did get satisfaction in Joe Gorga admitting that both his wife, Melissa Gorga, and her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, were wrong during their fight in Vermont.

“I vaguely remember Chris telling me the conversation between him and Joe Gorga that night. I honestly didn’t care to even hear about it, but I appreciated my husband having my back. I was also glad to hear Joe Gorga admit to his wife and sister being at fault as well… because they never will. They were both there so they know how the conversation REALLY went down in Vermont,” Jacqueline Laurita pointed out in her Bravo blog.
