“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jacqueline Laurita may not be filming the newest season of the show, but she is thankful for the opportunities that she was given with on the show when it comes to sharing her struggles with autism and her son, Nicholas. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Dec. 31, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that she loves that she got to use the show as a platform for autism discussions.

"I know that playing with Legos is something that my son, Nick, and I both enjoy doing together that enhances a connection between us," she has revealed about her son. Both she and her husband have been spending time with Nicholas, playing with Legos. One can imagine that she will continue to share his journey on her Twitter, if she doesn’t make some cameo appearances on the new season.

And even though she was criticized for sharing her son’s struggles on the show, she is thrilled with how some people are reacting. "People that aren’t going through [autism] don’t understand it," she says. "I love having the opportunity to be able to show people because honestly, what’s given me strength is listening to everyone else’s stories, their struggles, their successes. That’s what gives us hope and strength, so if I can do that for someone else, then that feels so good to me."

Are you surprised that she loves sharing his story and having the opportunity to share an autistic journey?
