As “Harmonee” states… after reading all… things just don’t add up!

Bravo’s NJ Housewife Jacqueline Laurita Interview: Behind the Cameras and A Deeper Look At Autism
“Some of our challenges include making sure our picky eater is getting all the additional nutrients he needs, since we keep him strictly on a Gluten Free, Caffeine Free, Soy Free, Chick pea Flour/Garbanzo Bean Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free diet! Our goal is to help Nicholas be the healthiest he can be, from the inside out” …BUT SHE GIVES HIM SUGAR SUCKERS EVERYDAY..SHE TWEETED THAT HERSELF
What tips would you give other moms who may be in your situation?
Educate yourself! the computer is a great tool. Learn about all of the resources and information that’s available relating to Autism. There are plenty of Autism websites and support groups. One the turning points for me was visiting the Autism Speaks website; I felt like I gained so much knowledge from the information provided by this organization, that I wanted to give something back to their charity so I hosted an event for them, The Sparkling Event, and lead a team in one of their walks for charity. It helps to open up and talk about it with others that can relate. …HOW ABOUT THIS TIP JACQUELINE GET OFF COMPUTER AND TAKE ALL YOUR “GAINED KNOWLEDGE” AND DO SOME HANDS ON WITH YOUR SON…
“I like that people can relate to me, and will share their experiences, tips and advice with me. It helps me to grow as a person. I learn from watching myself and others. I think and hope that people will learn from us too; even if it’s something as simple as it’s a lesson on how to act or how not to act. I love learning and I love helping others. To me, that’s what life is all about.”….UM I CHOOSE HOW NOT TO ACT, BUT I DIDN’T LEARN THAT FROM YOU I BELIEVE I LEARNED RIGHT AND WRONG IN GRADE SCHOOL..
What’s a typical day like at home when the cameras?
Typical day is that I get up, stretch, do laundry, take the dog out and feed him, Have some quiet tea time, pack school lunches, make breakfast, get the kids going for school, sit and talk with my husband as we both get ready for the day, drive kids to school, check my emails, work out, clean house, get groceries, put away groceries, research Autism and Beauty related topics, take notes (tweeting in between), make calls, pick up the kids, work with CJ on his homework while Nicholas is in therapy, prepare dinner, play with kids, eat dinner, clean up dinner, Get kids showered, get clothes & backpacks ready for the next day, put kids to sleep, finish laundry, catch up with my husband about each others day, go on the Internet again or read, beauty routine to prepare for bed, go to sleep to start again the next day. ..NOTE PREPARE DINNER, PLAY WITH KIDS, EAT DINNER….SO NICE OF HER TO SQUEEZE 15 MINUTES OF PLAY TIME WITH HER KIDS!!!
LUXERY MAGAZINE DELETED ALL THAT WERE NOT KISSING HER BUTT, SO THERE ARE ONLY 7 COMMENTS AND 2 ARE FROM INTERVIEWER

PEOPLE MAG REVEALED NICHOLAS AUTISTIC …She twittered some pretty vile things– time wasted that she could have used to help her son. I question the timing of this announcement. Right before the reunion…Is she now hoping this will give her a pass and nobody will hold her accountable for the awful things she’s said and done over the past year.
AUG 9TH 2012 (note) THIS WAS DONE ON 9TH BUT CAME OUT TO PUBLIC THE DAY BEFORE PEOPLE MAGAZINE …FACT
INTERVEIW WITH ALBIE MANZO
One case in particular, he told Patch, has really assured him of the product’s potential: A mother gave her autistic son blk. to drink, thinking its unique color might get him drinking more water. The boy not only drank it, he loved it, but the amazing part, he started behaving. The mother reached out to Albie, shocked, who sent her two more cases to try. Her son is stimming less and listening and following directions more. The difference, she told Manzo, is unbelievable
JacLaurita Perfectly! CJ is the BEST big brother EVER! So loving! @hannahlennoxx: @JacLaurita do CJ and Nick get along with eachother?”
