Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion: Jacqueline Laurita Alleges Teresa, Joe Giudice's Marriage Is Abusive
The proceedings -- and the accusations -- get even darker on part two of the season four reunion of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, airing this Sunday.
After throwing scrutiny on her cousin Kathy Wakile's 21-year marriage to husband Richie, Teresa Giudice sets her sights on friend-turned-foe Jacqueline Laurita -- alleging that Jacqueline's husband Chris cheated on her more than once.
"Didn't he cheat on you a long time ago? That's what you told me. Fine, then he didn't cheat on you," Teresa says in this exclusive preview clip. "That's why you told me you didn't trust him. That's why he's not allowed to go out."
In response, a fuming Laurita lays into Teresa's own marriage to "Juicy Joe," the father of Teresa's four daughters. "If we're being honest, he calls her those names and she calls him names and they punch each other," Laurita deadpans. "You guys get into some pretty bad [fights]. I've heard every name in the book from you two. You told me your husband cheated on you several times: You caught him with the secretary, the babysitter. You asked me what you should do, because my ex-husband cheated on me."
Teresa -- called "my bitch wife" and "c--t" by her husband during the Housewives' trip to Napa earlier this season -- stands firmly by her husband (present on set during this exchange) when firing back at Laurita. "Jacqueline, if my husband cheated on me he wouldn't be sitting here on this couch right now," she shoots back.
As all of the Housewives -- including Caroline Manzo, Wakile and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga -- continue to air grievances about Giudice during Sunday's second installment, the controversial reality star maintains her innocence. Says one source: "She's in denial."
Watch more of Laurita's angry exchange with the Giudices in the clip above before part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion airs Sunday at 10 p.m. (EST) on Bravo.
