Jacqueline Laurita’s Husband Talks ‘RHONJ’ Drama: Is Chris Done With Joe Gorga And Joe Giudice?
Jacqueline Laurita hasn’t spoken to Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga since the ladies sat down to film the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion earlier this fall. Between the season finale and the reunion, Laurita hadn’t spoken to her co-stars either. Teresa has publicly asked Jacqueline to please leave her and her family alone, and it doesn’t sound like she wants to give her former friend a chance to work on a friendship again. And one person who is standing by Laurita is her husband, Chris Laurita. Chris was close friends with Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga, and it sounds like the guys’ bond has been affected as well.
According to a new Bravo report, Jacqueline Laurita‘s husband Chris sat down with The Daily Dish and he revealed that he has chosen to walk away from his friendships with Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga to support his wife. Even though the guys can just talk things through within a few minutes, it sounds like Chris wants to support Jacqueline in her decision to leave the drama behind. And he admits that it was tough to watch Jacqueline Laurita fight with the ladies, as he stands by the belief that she was attacked in Vermont.

“Yeah, it’s been a very difficult season. Jacqueline is very big on people being truthful with her, and if you’re gonna try and establish or re-establish a friendship with her, she just needs to know that it’s real. And the second that she feels like it’s not, she gets really discouraged, and she puts her guard up,” Chris has revealed about his wife’s role in the drama on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, according to Bravo.

Chris didn’t see a reason why he should stay friends with the men if Jacqueline was so hurt by Melissa and Teresa. During his interview with The Daily Dish, he revealed that he was convinced that Melissa and Teresa made a pact to stay together and defend one another, no matter who it was. And this supposedly included Jacqueline Laurita, who was once very close with Teresa.

“Obviously, I’m her husband, and I sleep with her every night. I’ve seen what she had to go through this year, and it was a very tough year for her because you find yourself, you always find yourself in a defensive position because you have to defend the truth. You kind of got to speak the truth, and when you speak the truth, sometimes people don’t like to hear it,” Jacqueline Laurita’s husband explained during the interview, sharing that he will always choose his wife over some guys.

But it is shocking that Chris would end his friendship with the guys, especially since they would often ignore the drama with the ladies. They would have poker night and just close the door when the fighting got to be too much for them. However, it sounds like he’s taking a stand to support his wife.
“It definitely has impacted my relationship with both Joes. There’s no question about it. But it’s not because I walked away because I had to. I walked away because I wanted to. I walked away because I didn’t like the way they were treating us, nevermind just my wife. It was a decision that I made for my own reasons,” Jacqueline Laurita’s husband revealed, sharing that he does have a “never say never” mentality around him working things out with the guys.
