On the latest episode of her podcast, The Lookover Ladies, Jacqueline, and her co-stars dish on the RHONJ Special: Joe and Teresa Unlocked.
The former RHONJ star insists she’s only talking about Teresa and Joe Giudice because her podcast listeners want her opinion. However, we think Jac is just a wee bit desperate to get her podcast some much-needed press and attention. But hey, that’s just us.
“She’s not a topic that I generally like to talk about nowadays, but… recently Teresa and Joe made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live… they went on to discuss I guess the state of their relationship or their marriage as it stands today,” Jacqueline says to kick-off the podcast episode.
This allegation came after Andy Cohen shared a 2011 clip of Caroline predicting Joe going to prison and the demise of Joe and Teresa’s marriage.
Jacqueline had a lot to say about Teresa’s claim and pointed out that at the season 7 reunion, Teresa accused her of the same thing!
“The one thing I didn’t respect from her- Andy had brought up… season 7 reunion that I was on with Teresa, she blamed me for calling the feds on her,” Jacqueline explained. “And now she’s blaming Caroline Manzo, my sister-in-law. This is what I have to say about that. Her and I were friends at the start of this investigation of hers. She was on national TV flashing cash like crazy. Everyone saw it. She then- they filed bankruptcy. I didn’t even know they filed bankruptcy because she lied to me about all that. Then she- what happened was, when they knew they were getting in over their heads because they lied about stuff on their bankruptcy- they tried to withdraw the bankruptcy which drew a ton of red flags to the district attorney or whatever and they’re like ‘huh, this is awkward. Why are they withdrawing now? They said they were 11 minion dollars in debt.’… ”
She then reveals who she believes went to the feds on Joe and Teresa.
“So now they’re getting investigated,” Jacqueline continued, “looking into it. And at the same time, Chris told a story, and I guess people weren’t paying attention because people are still wondering who called the feds- this was already an ongoing investigation from way back. So then what added to it was Joe’s business partner who he screwed over- he owed him a lot of money- the guy went to a mutual friend of ours and said that he was gonna go to the feds if Joe didn’t pay him the money. The mutual friend went to my husband and said, ‘hey, do you think you can get Joe to sit down with his partner- his ex-partner or whatever- and work a deal with him where he pays him the money? Because if this guy doesn’t get paid, he’s gonna go to the feds.’ Joe’s response was ‘he can go f**k himself.’ So my husband’s like, ‘Joe’s not willing to sit down with him. He basically said for him to go f**k himself.’ So the friend went back and told the friend Joe didn’t want to sit down with him, didn’t want to work a deal with him or anything. And the ex-business partner, one can assume, he went to the feds. And that’s what happened.”
Jacqueline then admits she doesn’t understand why Teresa hates Caroline so much. Moreover, she doesn’t understand why Teresa continues to blame her and Caroline for her own legal issues. Jacqueline also points out that there were rumors that Joe Gorga allegedly had his secretary call the IRS on Teresa and Joe.
“So I don’t know what Teresa’s hatred towards Caroline is. Why she keeps blaming her or blaming me. There were rumors that her brother had a secretary call the IRS. I heard that one through someone, but- here she is blaming my sister-in-law who had always been there for her, tried to guide her, she’s very- I think she doesn’t like Caroline because Caroline is a lot smarter than her and she can use her words wisely. And Teresa can’t… so Caroline had made a prediction when she appearing on the Housewives of New Jersey when all this news of Teresa and Joe was circulating in the press, and everything was coming out and what she said was- she said ‘something may happen where maybe someone has to go somewhere. Teresa’s gonna have to pull herself up by her bootstraps and take over. She’ll say, you know what, I tried. I stood by him. But I have to divorce him now. And I’m gonna show my daughters what it’s like to be strong and independent and survive.’ Right? So basically, that is exactly what’s happening right now.”
The former RHONJ star then addresses Teresa’s claims that Caroline has lived a “crooked life.”
“So Teresa replies with, ‘my thing is, how could she predict that? Did she have something to do with what happened to Joe and I? Was she a rat? Why did she say that? Why?’ And then Andy’s like he asked Teresa, ‘so you think Caroline called the feds?’ And she’s like, ‘maybe, you never know, why would she predict those words?’ Then she goes, ‘Caroline has led that crooked life. And I never led that crooked life.’ Sweetie, come on, you are a convicted felon that has been to federal prison, and so has your husband.”
“So just stop it,” Jacqueline added. “She was pissed that Caroline was right. Not that she’s a psychic, but Caroline knows her character. It’s easy to predict.”
Jacqueline then sounded off on Teresa and Joe’s marital woes, their possible divorce, and allegations that Teresa and Joe have both been unfaithful to each other.
“Originally, Teresa had claimed she’d be standing by her man through everything, and now it looks like all of that has changed,” Jacqueline says.
“They both did each other wrong. I don’t care what either of them say. They both cheated on each other,” Jacqueline adds.
“Teresa never really takes accountability for things she does in her life,” she later notes. “It’s very hard for her to do that. It always has been. She’s a narcissist, sociopath.”
“I think- like she said- she loves him as a person, as the father of her kids. They’ve known each other since they were babies, so there’s always gonna be that you know, he was a big part of her life, but there’s still resentment towards him. So she wants him to be happy and successful and whatever, but at the same time, she doesn’t love him enough to be with him.”
She continued, “…if you love your husband, why aren’t you just going to be with him? But the truth is she doesn’t love him- she’s not in love with her husband. She’s angry at him. She doesn’t really want to be with him.”
There’s a whole lot more to this podcast that we will be unpacking tomorrow! Stay tuned. It’s super juicy and involves Teresa’s relationship with Melissa and Joe Gorga and how they joined RHONJ in the first place!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for season 10 on Wednesday, November 6th, at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
