Today is the day Joe Gorga, Chris and Jacqueline Laurita and Johnny the Greek head back into New Jersey court to answer to their misdemeanor battery charges. Let’s think about this for a moment, three people are accused of assaulting one persona and one person is accused of assaulting three people. The three people accused were angry with the fourth person about some comments on twitter (allegedly this is the story they will stick to). You don’t exactly have to be King Solomon to figure out how this is going to play out.
But before we get to all that, I MUST address Jacqueline’s latest blog, most likely in it’s entirety which is not my general practice but this blog is so full of cray that I may have to address each line. So grab a snack, this will be a long one.
DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA!
I am not able to get past the title without a comment. Jacqueline is in full on victim mode before she even gets started. Why oh why am I surrounded by drama? It just happens to me!
Kim D. told me I had actually been in Penny’s presence a couple of times in the past in quick passing at her store and at one of her events, but for some reason, I couldn’t remember her AT ALL. I certainly don’t know the girl, and we have never been formally introduced. I am sure I would have remembered her if she had been rude to me in the past, so she must have been nice to my face. Even when Penny was pointed out to me at Moxie, she didn’t look familiar at all to me. Maybe I was distracted by her hair, but I didn’t recognize her face.
Jac realizes her saying she had no idea who Penny was is utter bullshit, so she lies about lying.
Come to think of it, I have met lots of people, and nobody has actually been rude to my face upon meeting them. I guess most rude people just talk behind my back or hide behind their computers like cowards.
For someone who spends more time on her computer than I do, and I am a blogger, with no children, it seems like you are the one hiding behind your computer Jacqueline. Even as you write this blog, you have a lot of trash talking going on that you would never do to JtG or Penny’s face.
Once we arrived at Moxie Salon, I was told it was rumored that Johnny may be coming, contrary to what I had heard previously. I really wanted to confront him about what he had been saying on social media, to the press, and around town about my family, me as a mother, and about my son. Maybe because his wife “taught Autism” he thought he was an expert on the topic and could tell whether or not my son “graduated” that class with a diagnosis. He is the one constantly talking about all of us on social media and everywhere else, but WE are the ones trying to get attention? Ok. (Eye roll.)
How stupid do you think we are? We may be addicted to some of the worst TV on the planet, but other than that, our brain cells still work. EVERYONE, was talking about JtG being there on the shots shows in the episode on the way to the shoot.
And yes, Jac, you are the one trying to get attention by any means necessary even if it means disrupting Nick’s sleep schedule to exploit him on national television. Is Penny chomping at the bit for a piece of the pie? Sure she is. But you are definitely an attention seeker.
My husband and I were disgusted and bewildered by the amount of hate that was obsessively coming from him. It was unbelievable to me that a grown man would put so much effort into trying to ruin another person’s life that he didn’t even know for no apparent reason. I was curious if Johnny had an aggressive mental disorder that could potentially be very dangerous. What sane person tweets horrible things about people he’s never met all day long? Are his hot dogs not selling these days, because I can think of something entertaining for him to do with those left overs to fill up his…spare time?!
Maybe after confronting Johnny, he would tell me a random juvenile delinquent had hacked into his social media and it wasn’t really him. That would make much more sense. It certainly didn’t sound like a grown man. I decided to get to the bottom of it and ask the both of them face to face. If it was them saying those awful things I saw and heard, they could at least have the guts to look me in the eyes and say it to my face instead of hiding behind a computer like cowards. This was their big chance to say, directly to me, what they have always wanted to say, or had been saying about me and my family. I was giving them their shot. I then wanted to know their reasoning for saying these horrible, ugly things. I was just trying to make sense of it all. It was interesting how he announced on Twitter after that night that his attorney advised him to delete all his tweets over the past few years. That is why he had deleted them? I know why.
I confronted Penny because there were things on my mind that I felt needed addressing, and I wasn’t about to let it go. Penny was finally in the same room as me, and the odds of us being in the same room again were slim to none. To my surprise, Penny was just as sweet as pie to me. I was confused. I actually kind of liked her when she was being so nice to my face and when she said that she loves kids with Autism, although she kind of lost me a little when she said she “taught Autism.” I’m still trying to figure that one out, but that is neither here nor there.
So… Penny denied everything to my face as I looked her straight in her eyes, and she, of course, defended her husband. All I was hearing from her was that they didn’t do it, someone made them do it, and they were following orders from someone who was feeding them ammunition. OK… contradicting… but she sounded somewhat convincing, but truth or lie, what more could I say to her if she wasn’t going to admit anything to me? I wasn’t about to get into a “Yes you did!”/”No I didn’t!” war with her. Either way, their actions were unacceptable. I had to move on from it. Ugh! I hate when people lie to my face and/or about me. Have some integrity.
I wanted to ask Johnny the same things I asked Penny. I couldn’t believe the things he said and did. Guess you’ll have to wait for the season finale.
You know Jac, it takes a special kind of person to go on a reality TV show that is known far and wide for humiliating the participants as much as humanly possible, and then blame some random couple on twitter for ruining your life. The only way these people can ruin your life is if you make Twitter your life. Which you have. Allegedly so much so that you attacked a grown man repeatedly with the heel of a stiletto for his opinion of you and your family on twitter.
Now I will address “haters” in general for a minute. Haters on social media baffle me. Please answer these questions.
I don’t think ‘baffle’ means what you think it does. I think what you mean to say is that I spend all day worrying about what random assholes I don’t know think about me instead of handling my business.
1. Why follow someone on social media that you don’t like? That is weird. I don’t like your negative energy, and that is why I am not following you and blocked you. I’m sorry that you feel rejected. Try being kind.
Like you followed Teresa and went ballistic on her daily for months on end? Why didn’t you unfollow her or try being nice?
2. If we have never met, how could I have hurt or offended you personally, and so deeply, that you feel compelled to not only reach out to me, but to fixate, insult, obsess, and harass me? It’s as if you actually believe I murdered your puppy. I didn’t.
Look, Jac, I have always said that people that tweet you ugliness directly are overly involved in both RHONJ and Twitter. That said, I thought you blocked them? Problem solved. Yes?
3. How is me living MY life, and the choices I make, effecting YOUR life so negatively? If it’s hard to watch, and effecting you so emotionally, I advise you not to watch me anymore. Fast forward or don’t follow me. Hate makes you ugly and is not healthy. Save yourself.
I don’t think people are wasting energy hating you. I think they watch a show where you make an ass out of yourself and they laugh at you for entertainment. That would be somewhat cruel if you weren’t already dancing for our amusement voluntarily. But you are. So deal with it.
4. Did you know there is a difference between constructive criticism and insulting someone? Google it! When you insult me, I block you.
Again, you keep saying you block people. Problem solved.
5. Did you know that repetitively spreading rumors consisting of accusations that are not proven to be true (FALSE accusations) and maliciously stating them as facts is slanderous, defamation of character, and harassment?
I know that JtG knows that. Yet you keep doing it, because you have to follow the Bravo script.
Thank you to all you wonderful, kind hearted, supportive people that have appreciated our sincere efforts to raise Autism awareness, who love my family, who have supported me no matter what, who lift me up, who have shared with me their own stories, information, and resources, who make me smile and inspire me every day. You are a part of my joy and I wish you all the best, always! (The rest of you….not so much) XOXO!
