What started out as a tense situation between Jacqueline Laurita and gossip queen Penny Drossos, turned into a hilarious moment, at Penny’s expense of course. Jac confronted the platinum blonde in Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey about rumors her husband had spread about Jac’s autistic son Nicholas.

“I love autistic children, love them to death,” Penny said looking shocked. “I teach autism!”

Andy Cohen replayed the hilarious moment on Watch What Happens Live for guest stars Jacqueline and Kelly Ripa. Both ladies couldn’t stop laughing, and Jac even said, “I didn’t get the course on that.”

Whoops, Penny!

And though Ms. Drossos is dead to the Housewives, Jacqueline did admit that she still holds out hope for former bestie Teresa Giudice. Though Tre “doesn’t talk” about her impending court case where she and hubby Joe Giudice are currently charged with 39 counts of federal fraud and facing 50 years in prison, that hasn’t stopped her from maintaining the peace.  

“I think everybody just got to a point where they didn’t want to fight anymore,” Jacqueline explained. “We’re on really good terms. Our lives have changed since we were friends before. Since we stopped filming, we have texted each other here and there. We haven’t been able to spend time together. I’m very busy with what I’m doing, she’s very busy with what she’s doing. So it’s different, but in a good place.”

It’s nice to hear that these two have maintained a friendship, even if it is constantly evolving. Do you think they’ll be able to keep it up? Weigh in below!
