Jackie Goldschneider shocked us all when she confessed that her father “went away” to prison, much like Joe Giudice.

This revelation almost made it seem like Jackie knew what Teresa and her girls were going through instead of seeming like she was “kicking someone when they’re down.”

If you recall, during a recent episode of RHONJ, Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga were going at it about controlling Joe Gorga when Jackie jumped in and blurted out, “Do you really think Melissa could control her husband’s emotions? I’m sorry, all due respect, but do you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?”

This comment didn’t sit well with many of Jackie’s RHONJ co-stars. Shortly after Jackie confessed that her father “went away” like Joe.

However, now Jackie’s denying that her dad ever went to prison. So, which is it – Did Jackie’s dad go to the slammer or not?

Turns out not so much. Despite telling Dolores Catania that her parents “went away” like Joe and Teresa on an episode the Real Housewives of New Jersey; she’s telling a different story on Twitter.

“Can I explain something about my past to you? In my family, that happened also. My father went away for fraud,” Jackie confessed to Dolores.

“My dad was six months,” Jackie explained when Dolores asked for how long. “It’s part of our family. It’s just something we talk about.”

In her confessional, Jackie elaborated, “When I was in college my dad went away for tax evasion and my mother was on house arrest. Going through it was really tough especially waiting to find out their sentence but once they were doing their time we weren’t ashamed of it at all.”

Meanwhile, on Twitter Jackie is telling fans that her father never went to prison. In fact, Jackie says her dad spent 6 months in a halfway house then six months under house arrest!

See Jackie’s tweet below!

I really am confused by Jackie. One minute her dad “went away” but going away to a halfway house and going away to prison are very, very different. I feel like Jackie stretched the truth to make a connection to Teresa and what she’s going through.
