Jackie Goldschneider was the newbie this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. What does she think of her first season of Real Housewives? She said it was “amazing” and says that she “has no complaints.” She became good friends with Melissa Gorga, had some conflict with Teresa Giudice and fellow newbie Jennifer Aydin. During the finale episode of the RHONJ, it seemed like Jackie and Teresa had put everything in the past and were on good terms. However; when it was time for the reunion they went at it. Tensions were very high between them. Jackie recently opened up to Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, to talk about what changed with them between the finale episode and the reunion.
Jackie said that after watching the show and discovering what people have been saying in their confessionals – old feelings can resurface even if you have already made up and made peace. Jackie explained, “I think that when you watch the season, you see the things that people are saying about you in their interviews and when you’re not present and maybe that triggered her a little bit hearing me discuss what happened with other people so maybe she was a little more on edge when we got to the reunion.”
In addition to being upset about what has been said in interviews and confessionals, Jackie thinks that Teresa is upset about her friendship with Melissa. Jackie said, “I think she gets really hot and bothered by the fact that Melissa and I are good friends and for some reason that just gets under her skin so I think that when she saw us sitting next to each other at the reunion on the couch, I think something about it just triggered her and she was in a bad mood. You know what I equate it to? If you go on a diet and you wake up Monday morning and you’re like, ‘I’m going to be really good,’ and then you have a bite of something chocolate and you’re like, ‘Well, f–k it, let me just throw the whole day away.’ So she started off in a tiff with somebody at the reunion and then it was like, ‘Well, I’m already being an a–hole so f–k it, let me just go in hard on Jackie,’ and it backfired on her, I will say that. But she tried.”
Jackie added, “I think that Teresa learned an important lesson, which is that you cannot win a war of words with me. I will take you down.” As for the rest of the RHONJ reunion, Jackie said it is going to be fiery. She said, “I hope you are sitting down because it is explosive. The reunion definitely caught me off guard. So what can you expect? Expect a lot of fighting.”
I am loving this RHONJ reunion!
