On the Donnie Loves Jenny episode “Denny Does Dallas,” Jenny McCarthy gives a keynote speech at an Autism conference in Dallas. The autism activist/author McCarthy wasn’t the only reality TV star on the stage. Jacqueline Laurita of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and her husband Chris Laurita also addressed the crowd. Their youngest child, Nicholas, was diagnosed with autism in 2012.
[Laurita’s book Get It!: A Beauty, Style, and Wellness Guide to Getting Your “It” Together is available for pre-order. Out in May 24.]
Donnie Loves Jenny airs Wednesdays at 10pm and 10:30pm on A&E. Real Housewives of New Jersey will return for Season 7 in the summer. Laurita will return, as will her one-time frenemy Teresa Giudice who has recently been released from jail.
