Earlier this season, Jacqueline Laurita and her husband Chris made the tough decision to kick Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashlee, out of the house after she became unmotivated and disrespectful.

Now that she’s had some time to distance herself from the situation, Jacqueline is speaking out about just how hard it all was for her, and why she feels The Real Housewives of New Jersey ultimately helped her improve her relationship with Ashlee.

In an interview with, Jac weighs in on the impact the show has had on her family.

“It opened up the doors of communication between me and my daughter Ashlee. Because of this series Ashlee has been able to see things from my perspective and I have been able to see things from her perspective, because our moments are recorded and then played back. Doing this has allowed us resolve our differences, which to me is a blessing.”

And even though it was difficult at the time, Jacqueline maintains that she has no regrets about sending her daughter to live across the country with relatives. She reveals, “It worked out very well. Although Ashlee did not go to Texas after her visit in Las Vegas, she did move to California, which is something she had wanted to do for a long time.”

Do you think Jacqueline made the right choice?
