LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Where was Jacqueline Laurita for last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey 2011 reunion show? Jacqueline Laurita missed the RHONJ reunion taping, she told news several days ago. But last night, Jacqueline Laurita revealed to fans and news why she chose not to miss the reunion taping.
First, this season’s Jersey reunion was taped in a manner different than other Bravo reunion shows. Jersey was currently taping its next season when the reunion from the current season was also being taped. As a result, Jacqueline Laurita was experiencing anguish not about this current season, but next season, to cause her to miss the taping.
In recent weeks, Jacqueline Laurita had revealed some details about the anguish which caused her to miss the taping. Last night, she opened up more to news and fans. “I couldn’t emotionally or physically be there.” Laurita specifically chose the notable work “physically”. Why did she choose that particular word? It may have been because of Laurita’s contractual provisions about missing a reunion taping. “I wish I could explain more but I can’t contractually. After 4th I’ll explain more.”
She added more about the same. “I apologize for not attending the reunion but I was not well, Mentally and physically. XOXO! I hope you forgive me.” She added “Nobody listens to me anyway.”
Laurita then gave live blogging during the telecast about Teresa’s remarks. Laurita repeatedly called Giudice a liar. First, Teresa denied that she told cast members not to compliment Melissa Gorga. Laurita disagreed. “It’s true she told us not to compliment Melissa or tell her where we shopped or got our botox.”

Second, LALATE reported last season that Teresa allegedly did not want Bravo to add Melissa Gorga to the show and threatened to quit. Last night, Teresa said she never said that. Laurita disagreed. “Teresa never wanted Melissa on camera. [She] asked us not to talk to her on camera 2nd season when she came to parties filmed so she wouldn’t be on camera.”
Third, Teresa claimed she didn’t call Melissa a gold-digger; she said that Joe Giudice said the remark. LALATE has previously detailed that assertion by Teresa to be false. Laurita said the same last night. “I’m speechless. She did call her a gold digger. They both did.”

Laurita thinks Teresa seems sincere on camera. Viewers don’t agree; many believe that Teresa has not been honest for many seasons. “On camera Teresa seems sincere and tries so hard but in reality it wasn’t sincere” said Laurita.
So why did Laurita miss the reunion taping? Days ago, Jacqueline Laurita allegedly warned Teresa Giudice that a story was going to hit news featuring allegations of a Joe Giudice affair. Laurita claims that the Giudices threatened her, accusing Laurita of releasing the story (which she didn’t).

Laurita previously fumed, telling Teresa “Tell your husband I am not getting into your business and not to threat my husband. I didn’t take or release those pictures and I’m also not the one in them. I tried to stop them! … I was helping you!” She added “Don’t shoot the messager! You were going to see them anyway, I just wanted to give you both a heads up to be prepared before it went public. She has a lot more. She may still release them. Don’t shoot the messenger.”
