'Real Housewives of NJ's' Jacqueline Laurita on Danielle Staub: 'She was lying to my face'
"I really sincerely thought she wanted to change and wanted a new start," Jacqueline tells Zap2it. "I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt once again and see if she's being real this time."
In the last episode, we saw a turning point, though. Danielle's daughter had made the cover of a magazine and Danielle invited Jacqueline to attend a luncheon to celebrate. But, Jacqueline tells us that she was set up.
"She called me and invited me to things, knowing that I would say 'no,'" Jacqueline says. "And then when she hung up the phone with me, she conspicuously said, 'Awkward.' She meant it to be that way for me."
Jacqueline says that she and Danielle had made a deal to be "peaceful acquaintances" before shooting started. She told Danielle she wouldn't be spending time with her anymore, but she also promised that she wouldn't shun her if they saw each other or talk about her behind her back.
