Jacqueline Laurita was on the last segment of the Anderson Cooper Show this morning.
Jax was on Anderson to raise awareness of autism in children, as she recently learned her youngest son, Nicholas, was diagnosed as autistic.
Early in the interview, Anderson’s co-host, Niecy Nash stated that all of Jax’ cast mates have to be behind her since revealing that her son is autistic. Jax did not answer. Anderson repeated the statement; asked Jax point blank if Teresa has not been supportive; and added that he could not believe that anyone could NOT be supportive of an autistic child. Jax looked at her coffee cup, took a sip and remarked to Anderson about the coffee.
After chatting for approximately three minutes with Anderson, it was break time… and what appeared right before coming back from the commercial break? Why, it was Caroline Manzo… telling everyone how wonderful Jax and her brother, Chris Laurita are! And, of course, how much DonCaro loves them and the wonderful work they are doing for autisim.
Upon returning from the break, Chris Laurita joined Jax to speak about their son, Nick. Chris said he was not accepting of the diagnosis at first, but is now working with Jax to help their son.
Anderson asked Jax if she was returning to the Real Housewives of New Jersey. In true, Bravo-robo-speak, BubbaJax’ reply was, “You’ll have to wait and watch”… or something to that effect. You all know the drill… and you all know the answers to that question! The same answers which are drilled into ALL of the Housewives’ brain cells when anyone asks them that “Will you be back next season… blah, blah, blah?” question!
But wait! Chris Laurita took over the answer to Anderson’s “will you be back” question for Jax!
Chris Laurita told Anderson that IF asked back, he and Jax would use the RHONJ as a platform for autism awareness.

Jax tweeted around 4:00 pm that she WILL be giving back…
NOTE: HUH??? So, Jax is tweeting assurances that that she WILL be giving back… as if there was any question in the first place!?
