When Jacqueline Laurita returns to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" in a little more than two weeks, viewers will see her make Teresa Giudice's eyes water. Teresa's tears aren't from sadness but happiness. In the show's mid-season sneak peek, as seen on E! News on Wednesday, September 3, Teresa is shown crying after receiving a touching and supportive text from Jacqueline.
A scene shows Teresa telling her husband, Joe Giudice, that she received a text from Jacqueline. It then cuts to Jacqueline reading the text to Kathy Wakile the text and Teresa reading it to herself. In her text, Jacqueline told Teresa that she's like a sister to her, that her future will be brighter and that she's still the strongest woman she knows.
Teresa, whose voice shakes as she reads the text, is visibly moved by the text. The clip also shows Jacqueline stating to the camera that if she would be there for Teresa immediately if she called and that Teresa knows that.
Jacqueline and Teresa used to be very good friends. At one point, they even talked to each other every day. Through the seasons however, their relationship deteriorated to the point where they couldn't even talk to one another without screaming. While they forgave each other by the end of season six, their friendship is still far from what it used to be.
Jacqueline returns to the show on Sunday, September 21. It has been reported that Jacqueline's scenes will mostly be with Kathy. Despite speculation that she came back to confront sister-in-law Dina Manzo, a source said that it's not true and that Jacqueline's scenes are mostly "drama-free" when it comes to the other housewives.
The big question likely on the minds of many "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" fans is whether they will see Jacqueline Laurita together with Teresa Giudice in an episode and how they'll respond to one another. All About the Real Housewives reported that viewers will see Jacqueline attending Kathy's dessert launch party, which may be where Teresa was filmed calling Kathy a "b***h." Will Jacqueline get caught in between staying loyal to Teresa and defending Kathy?
