During part one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Teresa Giudice made some shocking claims and hurled an even more shocking accusation against her co-star and former friend Jacqueline Laurita.
In her Bravo blog, Teresa clarifies some of her statements from the reunion; revealing that she, in fact, would drive a Ford and why she accused Jacqueline of setting her up and calling the IRS.
More importantly, Teresa admitted she’s done apologizing for her past; explaining that she’s accepted responsibility, served her time, and paid her restitution.
See what else Teresa had to say below!
I hope you all enjoyed Part I of the two-part The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 reunion. Trust me, if you thought part one was good, wait until you see part two.
There are so many things that happened at the reunion that I want to address, so I am going to get right to it.
The Ford comment. Yes, I would drive a Ford, I have driven a Ford, Joe’s F-150 pickup truck is parked in my garage. I didn’t like the question, and I gave a snarky response. The reason I felt so defensive is because of all of the attention my car received when I came home from camp. Literally the day I came home people were taking about my car. As I said at the reunion, I was away from my children for 352 days. I am done apologizing to people about what happened. I accepted responsibility, I served my sentence, and I paid back every cent of restitution that was owed. The chapter of my life is over and yet as hard as I try to put the past in the past where it belongs, some people have to constantly bring it up.
People like Jacqueline .
Is Jacqueline Laurita the reason Joe and I had legal problems? No.
Were Jacqueline and others involved in communicating with some of the people that set out to hurt Joe and I? Yes.
Did I consider Jacqueline my friend at that time? Yes.
Did it bother me that someone who I thought my was my friend was in cahoots with people that were trying to destroy my family and hurt my children? Absolutely. That’s why I labeled Jacqueline a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and that’s why I absolutely want nothing to do with her.
She ran out of Rails in the season finale because she is a coward, she knows what she’s done to hurt my family, and she knows that I know.
When she didn’t show up at the Season 3 reunion, it’s because she knew what she had done to Melissa, and she didn’t want to be confronted about it.
You’ll see a lot more of me confronting Jacqueline in the second part of the reunion, and things will become a lot clearer.
I loved that Joey and Melissa have my back and that I have theirs. That’s what family is supposed to do. We are unbreakable and that’s another thing that drives Jacqueline nuts.
I absolutely love everything about Siggy and Dolores, and I loved when Melissa warned them about Jacqueline.
PS I had a great time with them this past weekend in Boca.
That’s all for now, stay tuned for part two this Sunday on Bravo at 10 pm.
Love love love you all,
