Jacqueline explains the joke about Kathy and how this reunion was different.

on Oct 13, 2013

My goal for the reunion: Keep it real but "speak only when spoken to" and only on issues concerning me or a scene I was involved in. (Unlike last years reunion.)

Last reunion I was brutally honest to the point that I said things that were not my place to say, because I was angry. I crossed the line a few times when I just should have stayed quiet. When I hear people lying to or about me, it hurts and angers me and I start calling people out. After I saw what that looked like last reunion, I decided I would not let that happen again, and I would have more self-control over my emotions in the future. I was very proud of how I stayed quiet this reunion and didn't throw in my 2 cents.

Let me make something clear. I love Kathy. I think she is such a genuine, loving, nurturing, unselfish person. When I was pretending not to be paying attention to her scene, it was a complete joke! I was teasing Kathy, because during this season it seemed like Kathy wasn't being heard, and not getting the time, attention, and respect that she deserved from all of us, because Kathy is always there for all of us. Rosie even pointed that out to all of us during the season. I was completely being silly at the reunion and making a joke out of it. I'm sorry if it was taken the wrong way by some of you. I would never intentionally hurt Kathy. I love her and her family very much. Kathy knows that. I just wanted to clear that up.
