'Real Housewives of NJ' Jacqueline Laurita: 'I always do what I want to do'

real-housewives-new-jersey-bravo-jacqueline-laurita-interview.jpgThere's more to " The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Jacqueline Laurita than her beef with her former friend and cast mate Danielle Staub.

Sure, at times that conflict can become her strongest storyline, but no one can claim that Jacqueline is just a housewife for Bravo's sake.

Zap2it spoke to Jacqueline about her kids and how she stays "thick as thieves" with her very opinionated family.

Congratulations on the new baby! Last season, you were having problems conceiving and now you have a healthy boy. So, how's life different with the new baby?
Oh my God. Well, last year I was so stressed out just trying to get pregnant. There were a lot of things going on with Danielle and everything. But, the baby is our little miracle. We love him. He has been such a joy. The kids are great with him. He makes us laugh every day. He's so cute. He looks nothing like me at all. He looks like my husband with the blond hair and blue eyes [laughs]. He's a really happy baby and he's really active. He's crawling everywhere now and walking around furniture. He's very attached to me, so he's always on my hip. So, I'm finding myself doing all my chores one-handed. So, everyday tasks get a little harder, but I'm patient. Eventually, I get everything done.
