Jacqueline Laurita And Siggy Flicker Are No Longer On Speaking Terms!

The drama continues in Jew Jersey, however this time it's not between Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita. It's been reported that Laurita and Real Housewives of New Jersey newcomer Siggy Flicker are no longer speaking and both ladies share their side of the story as to why the friendship ended. Check it out below!

UPDATE: Jacqueline Laurita took to social media and revealed that after a three hour phone call, she and Siggy Flicker have made up. "Today I am thankful that @siggyflicker called me and we talked things though & all is good between us again! #3HourPhoneCall #back2laughing," she wrote.


Relationship expert, Siggy Flicker was introduced to viewers during the show's seventh season as one of Jacqueline Laurita's friends, however it looks like the two have ended their friendship after the reunion special.

During a recent interview with All About The Real Housewives blog site, Flicker spilled all the tea about her now estranged relationship with co-star Laurita.

“I don’t have a relationship with Jacqueline anymore, but I tried my best to defend her for 18 episodes. Teresa and the people I’m closest to in my life know, and they say thank God you don’t need that in your life. It’s like a blessing,” said Siggy . “The reason why I haven’t been spending time with Jacqueline is she hasn’t talked to me since the reunion. I don’t know what I did to her. For 18 episodes I’ve had her back, and I don’t know what I did to her. I don’t know what goes on in her head, but I don’t give a shit because I can sleep at the end of the night.”

She continued: “I had Jacqueline’s back the whole time even when I was like ‘woah what’s going on here.’ After the reunion, I had two choices to call Jacqueline and ask her what’s going on but I said fuck it. I’ve had 18 episodes of having this girl’s back if she has an issue with me so let it be. There’s nothing I can do. I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t.”

So what does Siggy think was the reason Jacqueline stopped talking to her? “They aren’t happy that I like Teresa and I’m friends with her. If Teresa did something to me I’d be the first one to say hey I don’t like her but she’s been nothing but amazing to me, and I love hanging out with her. When I met Teresa, I fell in love with her. There’s nothing not to fall in love with. And Teresa’s always been nice to me; she’s just easy to be with.”

“I know I come across as a flip-flopper, two-faced, phony but I’d rather be that than other names. At the end of the day, the truth is I had Jacqueline’s back, and I was grateful to her for getting me on the show. When Jacqueline came to me two years ago and said Teresa’s getting out of jail would you consider doing the show I said absolutely not. I already auditioned for Housewives four years ago, and they didn’t want me,” she told AllAboutTRH. “I said I don’t have a shot, but I’ll help you cast it because I want to see Jersey get a better light. Six months later I decided to do it and said I’m going to change the show. You don’t need to bring drama; I’m interesting enough with my surgeries and my big mouth.”

She added: “At the end of the day they are going to call me two-faced or phony, which I can take, but in my heart at least I can sleep with myself at the end of the night knowing that I’m not calculating, I just live my life. I’m a lot like Teresa I don’t think before I speak.”

Following this interview, Jacqueline Laurita broke her silence and shared her side of the story about her fallout with Flicker.

“I wanted to clear things up especially since it has been brought to my attention that my relationship with Siggy is in question,” Laurita told Real Mr. Housewife. “Siggy was my friend for 2 years without one problem or fight before I introduced her into the group. The way Siggy and I met was through a mutual friend who told me I would totally click with her… and we did. We actually got along really well.”

“I don’t even consider myself fighting with Siggy,” Laurita continued. “I haven’t even spoken with her. She did, however, text me about 10 days after we taped the reunion where I had been attacked with false and ridiculous accusations and was having to defend myself for about 10 hours against what I consider TOXIC people. Instead of Siggy asking me if I was ok, she told me the reason she didn’t reach out to me earlier was because she needed some ‘downtime’ after our stressful reunion.”

“I didn’t realize the reunion had been so stressful for her,” Laurita added. “I thought she had it pretty easy actually. To unwind after filming wrapped, Siggy and I had planned a getaway to her hometown in Boca, but unfortunately there was never a follow through with that plan….at least that included me.”

She continued: “In all honesty, I don’t need or expect Siggy, or anyone else for that matter, to stick up for me or fight my battles for me because I can hold my own just fine, but it would have been nice if my friend acknowledged my feelings, and that the allegations and name calling made by Teresa and Melissa were not only toxic, but ridiculous. Seeing as though Siggy has made it clear that she does not like to surround herself with toxic people, I was sure my friend would understand how I was feeling at the time.”

“Unfortunately,” Laurita elaborated, “the hard lesson I’ve learned about Siggy is that she was never really concerned with everyone in the group all liking ‘each other’ as a genuine ‘relationship expert’ would be. Instead, I believe Siggy was more concerned about everyone liking “her!” Unlike Dolores, who stayed neutral through it all, Siggy played ALL sides very strategically. She has even admitted recently in a blog that she never truly cared about our friendships liked she had pretended to care. The unsettling reality and how it appears is that Siggy has always been out for…. SIGGY.”

“It is hurtful to me because I fought really hard to get Siggy on the show because not only did I love her, I thought she would be a great mediator for all of us,” Laurita continued explaining. “I knew she would be a great addition to the show. I loved her high energy and positive vibes she often put out. I always spoke very highly of her. I never put any pressure on her to pick a side, because that’s not what I’m about. Although there were many times Siggy would call me after filming to tell me how proud she was of me for the way I handled myself with such class as opposed to the others. She had of way of making me feel like I did everything right and/or when I reacted out of character, it was always for a very good reason. She was always very comforting and reassuring. Apparently, she was very comforting and reassuring to everybody.”

Laurita then revealed to the blog site, “I truly went into this season optimistic. I thought Teresa and I would be able to mend our friendship and Siggy and Dolores would be supportive through that process. Early on and throughout the season I was led to believe that Teresa was not genuine or sincere. This immediately put my guard up. Truth is, I don’t need Teresa in my life, especially if I’m going to be accused of all these terrible things. But since she reached out to me I was open to working on repairing the friendship. I’m all about real friendships that are truthful, open, and sincere. When someone isn’t being honest with me I’m not afraid to let them know how I feel. I’m the kind of friend that tells you the TRUTH about how I’m feeling with the hope that we can get it all out and then move in a positive direction. I guess some people don’t like hearing the truth.”

“Since the season has wrapped, I can honestly say that my life has been more than amazing,” Laurita continued. “I’m blissfully happy! I have a house full of love, a new Grandchild, supportive, fun, positive, non-toxic friends, a successful business, a growing business, traveling, doing charity work, updating my house, writing another book, doing everything I can for the autism community, etc. etc. etc. Needless to say, I have been very, very busy.”

She added: “I don’t sweat the small unimportant stuff anymore,” she added. “I know my worth and for those that don’t or choose not to see it…they are not supposed to- nor do they deserve to- be in my life anyway and I am better for it. I honestly don’t feel like I’ve lost anything or anyone important to my life that was worth keeping around. I’m good!”

It's sad to see that another friendship has ended due to the Real Housewives curse, however it will also make excellent reality TV drama for Season 8.
