Siggy Flicker joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey this season in hopes of helping out the ladies on the show. It’s no secret that relationships were broken when Teresa Giudice was found guilty of various fraud charges. While Teresa had no interest in talking about her business dealings and being sentenced to 13 months behind bars, Jacqueline Laurita wanted to hear everything from her friend. Melissa Gorga also had questions, but respected her sister-in-law’s situation and didn’t ask too many questions.
According to a new Bravo report, Siggy Flicker is now revealing that she’s convinced that Jacqueline is very hurt from what happened in the past between herself and Teresa. While Giudice gladly talked to the press about her case in exchange for money so she could care for her family, Laurita felt that she wasn’t a good friend to Teresa as she got no details whatsoever. But Giudice has revealed that she merely didn’t want to talk about her case to anyone, which is something Siggy Flicker understands.
“Regarding Jacqueline and Teresa’s relationship, I’ve always believed that Jacqueline was reacting in a way that stemmed from uncertainty and hurt. She never trusted that Teresa truly wanted to be her friend again and after the Vermont trip, those feelings just escalated,” Siggy Flicker explains in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, sharing that Jacqueline’s outbursts in Vermont didn’t help the healing process at allDespite what happened in Vermont, Flicker really wanted to get all of the ladies together during the finale so that they could work out their issues. While Siggy Flicker managed to convince everyone to show up for a conversation, Laurita quickly tried to control the situation by wanting to speak with the ladies one-on-one. Sadly, her approach didn’t work, and Siggy Flicker admits that everything came across rather aggressively. It didn’t help that she had a ride waiting for her and quickly left when she felt she was being attacked.
“How I wish that Teresa had softened her approach towards Jacqueline within the first three minutes of her sitting down, and how I wish Melissa had just answered Jacqueline’s “Strippergate” question right away. It was all one big mess; Dolores and I did our best to give Jacqueline’s perspective in hopes of bringing everyone together,” Siggy Flicker points out in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“It all happened so fast. I know that Jacqueline was still so hurt from the Vermont trip and she wanted to talk to the girls one on one so that both Teresa and Melissa couldn’t gang up on her, but Jacqueline’s delivery was wrong. She was giving orders and neither Teresa nor Melissa was having it and it didn’t end well. When Jacqueline left, Dolores and I chased after her because we wanted to tell her that her delivery was off in hopes that she would come back inside and we could start all over again,” Flicker writes in her blog for Bravo.
