Jacqueline Laurita addressed her recent reunion with Teresa Giudice, hinted at why their friendship previously ended, and addressed her potential return to Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Recently, Jacqueline and Teresa met up with their husbands for a long lunch, and the former costars seemed thrilled to reconnect. For many seasons on the show, the castmates were best friends before the alliance vanished without a trace.

On Instagram, in a post shared by @allabouttrh, Jacqueline addressed her “5-hour lunch” with Teresa, hinting there was “lots to talk about,” and claimed the reunion “feels so good.”

She also clapped back at the accusation she had an agenda.

“NO, I don’t want back on RHONJ!” wrote Jacqueline, who then explained, “I live in Las Vegas, and [I’m] moving to Orange County in CA this summer! Although the Ultimate Girls Trip sounds fun, I don’t have a sitter for that long to care for Nicholas to be able to do it right now.”

She also set the record straight on another matter: “No, our friendship rekindling has nothing to do with our mutual disdain for Melissa [Gorga].” As of now, both Jacqueline and Teresa are feuding with Melissa, Teresa’s sister-in-law.

Hinting at why her past friendship with Teresa failed, Jacqueline expressed, “Teresa and I had a great friendship BEFORE the show, and now that all the stress, toxicity, outside influences, and pressures from being on a show together are gone, and life is good for both of us, it is easier to forgive and maintain a friendship. It’s that simple.”

She wrote the hashtag, “#NewBeginnings” and said it’s “for REAL this time.”

“Lucy and Ethel are BACK.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
