Teresa Giudice Was the Only Housewife NOT to Reach Out to Jacqueline Laurita After She Revealed Her Son’s Autism
We knew things had gone from bad to worse for former friends Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice during Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but Jacqueline’s recent revelation illustrates just how severely their relationship was damaged.
In Jacqueline’s discussion about her son Nicholas’s autism diagnosis with Huffington Post, she dropped quite the bombshell, revealing that all of her co-stars had offered her and Chris their support — except for Teresa!
“All of my cast members knew there was an issue prior to the actual diagnosis and most were very supportive with encouraging kind words and offering us different resources to help,” Jac said.
“Since the actual diagnosis, and the article in People magazine, all of my cast mates have reached out to us for support except for Teresa, but that was to be expected,” she continued.
Ouch! We gotta admit, we’re pretty shocked that Teresa didn’t even check in on Jacqueline after she went public with Nick’s condition.
As for her choice to speak publically about Nick’s autism now, Jacqueline explained, “Once we got the diagnosis and treatment plan in place, we realized that by putting it out there, it would not only help our son by the amount of support and resources given to us, but we could also bring awareness to autism and help other people that can relate to us. We just wanted to control the way it came out.”
We know this isn’t an easy time for Jacqueline, and we applaud her for the tremendous courage it must have taken her to be open about her son’s condition.
Still, are you surprised that Teresa never reached out to Jacqueline? Weigh in below!
