Jackie Goldschneider was featured on Tuesday night’s Watch What Happens Live, where she reacted to Melissa Gorga‘s recent suggestion that she wants to be invited to everything.
While also offering an update on her relationship with Teresa Giudice, 51, confirming her tension with Margaret Josephs, 56, and seemingly calling out Housewives who’ve denied their use of Ozempic, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 46, teased the series’ “wild” 11th season and opened up about the “aha moment” she had amid her eating disorder.
“It was a moment for me when I was on the floor and realized that if I didn’t stop now, I wouldn’t even make it to an old age,” Jackie admitted on the September 26 episode of WWHL.
Although Jackie confirmed the moment took place amid her six-year run on RHONJ, she said she was not in production at the time. That said, the series did impact her disorder.
“Something happened on the show that brought me to a real low point,” she shared. “It was after the [cheating] rumor [about Evan Goldschneider], it was more of the social media of it and how that affected me and I really internalized everything, and I just was at a real low place and used to take it all out on food and I just wasn’t eating.”
“It was bad but I wouldn’t change anything because it got me here,” she added.
According to Jackie, she’s “about 80 percent” recovered.
“And the rest of it is not an eating disorder,” she explained. “It’s more like fears around food that I gotta conquer, but I’m really almost all the way there and it’s life-changing.”
Moving on to the new season of RHONJ, Jackie said “it’s been great,” despite the fact that Teresa is refusing to film with Melissa, 44.
“It’s a really wild season but they, it’s not all about the Teresa-Melissa dynamic this season, so it’s great,” she teased.
And Andy Cohen, 55, agreed, saying, “It’s just established. They hate each other. Now let’s move on.”
Amid the episode, Jackie was asked a series of rapid-fire questions, during which she said she believes Teresa and Luis Ruelas, 48, will last “eternally.”
“They’re happy together,” she declared.
She also shared that the juiciest rumor she’s heard about another Housewife is that they’re “really on Ozempic when they claim they’re not,” and she said the rudest thing a fellow Bravoleb said to her was, “Your husband’s screwing another woman.”
As for her “least favorite” castmate, that honor went to Margaret, confirming recent rumors of a feud.
“I don’t wanna ruin the season but I’m going through something with Margaret,” she revealed.
Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Jackie was asked how her relationship with Melissa has been since Melissa was caught claiming she wants to be invited to everything.
“Well, I do want to be invited to everything, but I have yet to speak to her about it, so we’ll see how that goes,” she teased.
As RHONJ fans may have seen, a video of Melissa complaining that Jackie “wants to be invited to every single party” surfaced on Instagram earlier this week. And shortly thereafter, Jackie called her out for the shade while chatting with the host of Good Day New York.
“Melissa, you talked about me the other day on Instagram. We’re gonna have to talk about that,” Jackie stated.
Also speaking to Good Day New York, Jackie said that when it comes to her relationships with Melissa and Teresa, she has a “really good thing going with both of them.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in 2024.
