After last night's second-part conclusion to the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 Reunion, Jacqueline Laurita is explaining why she wasn't actually dissing Kathy Wakile. 

During the reunion, it appeared that Jacqueline was ignoring Kathy's scene, but Jacqueline now says it was all in good fun. "Let me make something clear," Jacqueline writes in her Bravo blog. "I love Kathy. I think she is such a genuine, loving, nurturing, unselfish person. When I was pretending not to be paying attention to her scene, it was a complete joke!"

So why was this a joke? "I was teasing Kathy, because during this season it seemed like Kathy wasn't being heard, and not getting the time, attention, and respect that she deserved from all of us, because Kathy is always there for all of us," she continues. "Rosie [Pierri] even pointed that out to all of us during the season."

Jacqueline says she made sure not to fight with people at this year's reunion, so she didn't want it to appear that she was shading Kathy when she wasn't. "I was very proud of how I stayed quiet this reunion and didn't throw in my two cents," Jacqueline writes. "I would never intentionally hurt Kathy. I love her and her family very much. Kathy knows that."

We're glad Jacqueline is clearing the air and making sure we know that things are good between Kathy and her. Phew!
