Oh no, she didn’t!
On the Real Housewives of New Jersey After Show, the Turning the Tables authors was shocked to hear that Jackie brought up the cheating rumors about Evan during her toast to him.
“Evan, I love you so much,” Jackie said during her toast. “It’s dedicated to all the girls he f–ked when he says he’s going to gym.”
It turns out some of the ladies loved Jackie’s shocking comment while others thought she was stirring the pot even more!
“That was good; it diffused everything that she could laugh about the rumor. That made me feel like everything was okay. I love that she said that,” Margaret Josephs confessed.
Jennifer Aydin dubbed Jackie’s toast “sassy [and] sarcastic.”
“Wait, she said that at the party?” Teresa questioned. “Wait, she said that? She got mad at me for the rumor? Where was I? I must have been really toasted.”
On the After Show, Teresa seemed a bit confused by all the drama. She initially thought Jackie said this toast at Evan’s first party and questioned why Jackie got mad at her when she brought it up as well. Jennifer and an RHONJ producer informed Teresa that this all went down at Evan’s do-over party, which she wasn’t invited to.
“Oh, she had another party?” Teresa replied.
Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga was proud of Jackie for poking fun at the gossip.
“That’s what I wanted you to do from the beginning,” Melissa admitted. “I was so proud of her at that party because I was just like ‘let it go.’ I didn’t know how you were suffering at home. I was just like, laugh this off, who cares? Like make it go away, but she couldn’t do it.”
“No, you can’t laugh off something like this,” Jackie noted, to which Melissa replied, “Well, I did. I’m not going to lie; I’ve had so many rumors about me I’m like [f–k you]. Keep it moving a–hole. That’s just me, though. I know that’s not you.”
Jackie explained that it was her “place to be okay” with the rumor since it wasn’t about her, noting that if Evan “wasn’t okay with it,” then “I wasn’t okay with it.”
She also admits that if Teresa has spread the rumor that she was cheating, she would have confronted Teresa, laughed it off, and went on the cast trip to Lake George. However, she adds that it wasn’t her place to tell Evan to be okay with the rumor.
Melissa agreed, saying that she ignores rumors about herself, but it’s a different story when it comes to her husband.
“I actually turn into a crazy person when someone tries to hurt Joe,” Melissa revealed. “All the time, I don’t know why, worse than if you try to hurt me. It’s the weirdest thing.”
While Melissa and Margaret seemed to support Jackie’s shocking toast, Dolores Catania wasn’t feeling it at all.
“I would have NEVER toasted that even on a kidding moment,” Dolores declared. “I wouldn’t have toasted to f–kin no girls my husband slept with or may have slept with or didn’t sleep with.”
“I would have,” Margaret interjected. “I think that’s funny. That just showed that she was over it.”
“Well, it definitely broke the ice,” Dolores said in agreement. “I couldn’t physically have [said it.]”
