Jacqueline Laurita Responds to Joe Giudice’s Autism Comment
Everyone was pretty much appalled when Joe Giudice gave his expert opinion on Autism this past week on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but the person who should have been the most annoyed, Jacqueline Laurita, remained surprisingly composed.
Joe made his comment during Sunday's Lake George retreat episode, casually remarking that Autism isn't a "bad disease" and that some of them become scientists. In her latest Bravo blog, Jacqueline responded to Joe's words.
She agreed that many autistic kids do go on to have great professional success in various fields, probably because they have such great focus. But, she pointed out that it's up to the parents and teachers to guide their children and that takes a lot of work and dedication.
As far as Joe making light of the Laurita's current situation, Jacqueline wrote Joe a direct message:
"Autism is a developmental disorder that requires a LOT of extra time and special attention that sometimes parents of typical kids find it hard to understand. Google it."
