A Kenosha foster mom was taken into custody by the Kenosha Police Department early Tuesday morning according to the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department inmate search. Police recommended to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office that Jacqueline Covelli-Niccolai, 37, of Kenosha, be charged with “Going Armed With Firearm While Intoxicated,” a misdemeanor.

Reports show that someone called police at 2:24 am to ask them to check on the welfare of Niccolai at her far-south side home. When police encountered Niccolai, she was allegedly armed with a gun and intoxicated. Niccolai is showing a criminal charge and or conviction out of Riverside, CA. The charge is unknown.

Niccolai, according to court documents, has admitted to police that she has recently done illegal drugs. She is three-times divorced and admitted to cheating on her second husband and was accused of cheating on her third husband. She has fostered and adopted children. Her social media reports that she is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) at a popular Kenosha Mental Health Counseling and Family Court Services organization, however, the director for this facility confirmed with KCE that she is no longer employed there.

KCE recently reported on her ex-husband, Josh Covelli, being arrested and charged with rape and stalking. Niccolai made a public statement at the time and identified herself as the victim of the assault. She also made a statement in which she accused a second man of attempted sexual assault. Niccolai emailed KCE and begged us to take down details of her drug use and other information. After pulling on our heart strings, we obliged. She convinced us that her drug use was heavily coaxed by Covelli. We are now not so sure. We also turned off comments on that post at her request.

No good deed goes unpunished, however. Niccolai would later ask KCE to take down articles or portions of articles of her friends. She seemed to think she had some sort of control over our editorial decisions, calling herself a “victim advocate.” When we refused, she said terrible things about this publication on her Facebook page and called this author a “bad person.” We learned a lesson here. From now on, we report the news and hold fast, not caving to disingenuous people like Niccolai with low moral character.

KCE will report when and if she is charged by the DA. Niccolai responded to a request for comment by saying “I was at home sleeping when the cops came to my house. My mom called to have the police check on me.” Nicolai also told KCE that she “retired” from being a foster parent.

  1. Get her little friends info out there too that she was just in jail with. The one and only DOROTHY PARKER who blames her ex for her fuck ups who was just sentenced to one year for their toxic relationship and her saying how she’s been a victim. She’s not a victim. She’s the abuser of MANY MEN!

      1. because we all know who you are Andy, gtfo clown. Unless you post full name and address of your self, quit throwing stones

      2. unless you put your full name and address quit throwing stones. It’s not like we know who you are “Andy”

    1. Well let’s see the Parker girl has 4 DUi’s and just got arrested last week for strangulation so…

      She isn’t even hot….why do guys date these whackos. At some point, you know her MO…

  2. Jackie has been married THREE times. She has accused multiple men of sexual abuse and has accused her last 2 husbands of stalking and one husband she accused of physical abuse. She’s a train wreck. Don’t believe a word this chick says!! How anyone can use her as a counselor is beyond me!

      1. Very professional, Kelly. I’m sure it’s not hard to narrow down who you are and inform your job that you slander the parents of former students online.

        2
        5
        1. Yea. The same can go for her… Treating substance abuse patients? On the board of substance abuse org? A foster parent? Kelly might do the same.

          3
          1
        2. Facts are facts. Facts are not slander. It seems as though anyone that is not her friend has the same type of unpleasant encounters with her. 🤷‍♀️

          1. That’s because all of her friends are drug and alcohol addicts. Ashley blanck, brianna purser-colter, Brittney Bakken.. they are all delusional nut jobs as well as Jackie and dori. They all are so well at playing the victim, oh poor me, but they are all abusers to the men they date and marry. Manipulation at its finest. And they also hang out with men who have beaten several women!

          2. I’m not her friend, nor have I had a pleasant encounter with her. However, I still believe it is extremely unprofessional for school officials to be commenting on this matter.

            1. lol. Like kusd has any reputable employees. Half are on this page for messing with kids. Take what an employee says with a small grain of salt. Hypocrites

  3. It’s a misdemeanor. Not like she was caught with drugs Not saying it’s right at all. She committed a crime. Just stating

  4. This a foster parent in Kenosha? The same agency that denied me access to my grandchild because of a felony conviction when I was 18? 40 years ago? Kerman better fire that director or she’s just an enabler to a corrupt system.

  5. Her, Ashley Rinaldo and Dori Parker all have serious issues. They stir up the pot in any situation and blame literally any persons but themselves for anything. Ashley fabricates every story, post, situation or conversation. Dori blames every male she’s with for abusing her when her rap sheet is evidence that she’s the abuser and instigator. No wonder these three are best friends. Sickening.

        1. You’re a psychopath and you’ve lost custody of all 3 of your kids. Stop having babies you crazy ass.

          2

          1. She doesn’t have 3 kids…… have no idea where you’re getting that number from. Reagan biological mother is innocent 100000000000%
            these people took her first kid which is reagan straight from the hospital no drugs no alcohol no nothing she posted her evaluations papers n everything she posted 7 different evaluations all from different psychiatrists and there all the same results that she has no form of mental illness of any kind, only separation anxiety which dcf is the cause of which makes sense.
            She has videos with her attorney he stated her rights as a mother were completely violated all the way she does not have any mental issues of any kind. Dcf went far by hiring a therapist to diagnose where with some bullshit she does not even have. That therapist read the court papers which were a whole bunch of lies and put it in the evaluation report. I believe she is stable everyone else believes that as well including the judge who handled her lawsuit case against dcf.
            caseworker admitted in court she told her that she would never be a parent to her child because she’s black that a white woman is more capable of parenting her own child more than her, racism played a huge part in her case there’s voice recordings throughout her dcf case she provided in her lawsuit against them. Everyone heard them in court as well as the judge. honestly, I feel bad for her, it is absolutely sickening what they did to her being she never lived in Wisconsin. Jackie helped take her baby I do not blame her mom being furious and angry, I would be too if I were a parent. if she was crazy why did she win her lawsuit case against DCF? dcf admitted she never committed any negligence or any sort to have her child removed from her care in the first place. It being there was family who were ready to take Reagan in dcf would not let her go due to the circumstances of Jackie wanting to adopt her her feelings were put first instead of what’s really in Reagan’s best interest and that is to be with her bio mom with family with her little sister.
            I was there at her lawsuit court date heard everything.
            I do not know Reagan’s bio mom like that but what I do know just by supporting her she’s 100000000% not lying I heard everything in court I stand beside her fully and wholeheartedly

            1. You are nit helping your case at all. You comments and the way you are coming across make you look mentally insane and unstable. If you want people to take you seriously, you have to learn how to conduct yourself in a mature, sane, and logical manner. I hope you get the help you need.

              1
              1. She has the right to be angry and upset
                Let the girl speak her mind after all she did experience trauma being separated from her kid

  6. Sorry to say it, but you reap what you sow. I wouldn’t trust her with ANYTHING. She is a fraud and a liar.

  7. Single and married men alike, be weary of this woman. She tried to make a play at my husband the first time she met him, while she was married to her 2nd husband (who BTW was best friends with her 3rd husband whom she divorced and is charging him with rape). My husband’s radar went off right away. She’s a toxic person!!!!!

    14
  8. You will find that social workers are in that profession for 2 reasons.
    1st They want to help save the world.
    2nd They want to save themselves.
    Looks like she tried both angles.

  9. PSA: Men and women keep your distance. This toxic woman made a pass at my husband the first time she met him, while she was married to her 2nd husband (who happened to be best friends with her 3rd husband whom she is now accusing of rape). This is all a game to her. She is a compulsive liar and enjoys breaking up relationships. She’s told so many stories that she probably can’t remember them all. She should probably stop seeing patients and get herself some professional help.

    1. Don’t be shy, post your name. You want to share intimate, irrelevant stories about her; but you’re posting anonymously.

      1

  10. In my experience, they wouldn’t charge you for having a gun in your own home, even if you’re intoxicated, when you’re not committing any other crime. That would be ridiculous if you owned a gun, got an unexpected knock on your door, and were charged with a crime for having your gun on or near you. Especially if you’ve been a legitimate sexual assault and stalking victim in the past. Charging someone in this situation would be especially ridiculous.

  11. I hope somebody reported her to the Department of safety and professional services so that they can take away her license to practice counseling.

    6
    2
    1. She may have an embattled “love life” however, she has not done anything to warrant taking away her professional license. Should men run the other way when it comes to dating her, absolutely… but again, that doesn’t warrant revoking her license as a counselor.

      2
      1
      1. And she hasn’t been and won’t be charged. I’m not sure why this was even even included in this article… you know it’s not illegal to have a firearm in your own home… drunk or not.

      1. Do you read? So if someone knocks on your door that late at night and you grab a firearm? Learn the law idiot Also learn what brandishing means. Do YoU ReAd

    1. It was in her home, not on her, and it’s on camera. She won’t be charged. The writer of this article is an idiot.
      She smoked marijiana once in her life years ago.
      The writer of this article gets it up by making things sound bad.

      6
      3
      1. False..This was her comment on last article. Note, first sentence say never did a drug, then admits to 4 times later in the paragraph…
        “I don’t do drugs, in fact I’ve never done one in my life. I smoked weed when I was a teen 2x and once with my children’s father over a decade ago. I don’t react well to it and had no intention of ever doing it again. Josh is extremely jealous and controlling. I loved him and wanted to please him. “You are not going to do something with another man and not do it with me” I heard on a regular basis about marijuana. I tried it twice with him, having the same reaction; sick, spinning, etc. Questioning my professional competence because I smoked weed 4 times in 15 years is ridiculous.”

        2
        2
        1. It’s marijuana. Maybe the state of Wisconsin needs to get out of the 16th century and update their laws like the 39 others in this country. Marijuana is not a drug.

          7
          3
              1. Who takes Xanax? Her comment was that she has never done a drug in her life. Which is false.

  12. How enjoyable this is to see, she is indeed a horrible person. Working for the school district I’ve had to deal with this unpleasant self intitled POS. She was/is a collector of foster children for a paycheck. Karma sweetheart, i hope you continue to spiral

    10
    1
  13. So, does this sociopath’s shit behavior get factored into the allegations she made against Josh? How do you NOT look at his case and think twice about the validity of her claim? I HATE when women deceptively play the victim when they are aggressively deceitful! Stop acting like a bitch because you didn’t get your way!!

    12
    1
    1. Josh continues to stalk her and there’s records of it, videos of it. So probably not. Maybe if he was leaving her alone she wouldn’t have lost it.

      2
      4
      1. Why? Because she fucked up and needs someone to blame! Why blame a family that had nothing to do with her idiocy? Shameless!

      1. Ion need meds How about you shut the fuck up and mind the business that pays you boo boo you ain’t thug enough to say the shit to MY mfn face I KNOW you ain’t gon have that same energy in front of me doe you gon be a scary ass bitch if I pulled up on your mfn ass RIGHT NOW you ain’t as tough as you think you is if you think you is
        THEN WASSUP

            1. Look I give no fuck
              imma nice person but Imma bitch when a mf got me fucked up cuz ion play bout my kids mfs rly needa stfu tryna tell ME about ME without knowing shit bout me just cuz you heard what Jackie said seen some lies on court papers from DCFS dont mean the shit true bout me cuz the cunt just intimidated by me cuz I’m still tryna be involved with MY child I ain’t scared of shit I ain’t scared of Jackie either

              1. you mfs goin off on shit that’s one sided asf how tf do that work bruh make it make sense
                the mf ain’t thug enough to keep that same energy if I was to pull up

        1. This kind of talk is a big part of the reason you lost custody of your child. You are not stable. You should be ashamed of yourself talking like this. If you really wanted your child back, you would not behave this way.

          1
          1
          1. The way I speak ain’t the reason why I lost custody first of all
            It was easy for them to take my mfn kid
            I was a 18 year old young and vulnerable BLACK MOTHER giving birth to a baby in the hospital by herself it was easy for them to manipulate me I never was. Wisconsin resident Waukegan hospital don’t deliver babies the ambulance dumbasses took me over state lines to a hospital nearby when they wasn’t supposed to WISCONSIN HAD NO JURISDICTION OVER ME AND MY BABY I NEVER LIVED IN WISCONSIN ONLY BIRTHED HER THERE
            in my lawsuit I DIDNT HAVE TO GIVE THEM MY CHILD the pink slip the dcfs investigator gave me at the hospital WAS A REQUEST TO TAKE HER NOT A COURT ORDER TO TAKE HER if I would’ve known that back then this shit wouldn’t have happened

            1. First they said they took Angela away from me is because I lived in a hotel before giving birth 2 weeks after having her I moved in my apartment in Waukegan
              When JUDGE WILK told them that’s not a reason to take a baby away just because the parents lived in a hotel
              They came up with something else tryna say that I was on drugs THATS NOT TRUE because I never did anything like that I don’t drink alcohol and then they tried to get my PAST medical records from when I was a baby to 18 years old I didn’t give them permission to get that so they tried FORGING MY SIGNATURE TO TRY GETTING IT I know because I got a call from the place I was going to as a child and I was told that Wisconsin sent a request to get my information and the signatures DIDNT MATCH they tried it and was slick about it They didn’t have shit on me there was NOTHING THEY COULD SAY about me so they tried getting records from my past! Understand that when I was a KID YES I DID GO TO STREAMWOOD BHS I WAS A CHILD WHO JUST LOST THEIR MOTHER TO CANCER
              WHAT CHILD DO YOU KNOW WOULD BE OKAY MENTALLY AFTER JUST LOSING THEIR MOTHER AS A YOUNG CHILD? MAKE IT MAKE SENSE! IM NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT THAT
              IM ABOUT TO BE 26 YEARS OLD AND DONT GOT SHIT MENTALLY GOING ON WITH ME RIGHT NOW FOR 11 YEARS! IVE BEEN EVALUATED SO MANY TIMES AS AN ADULT I LOST COUNT
              THERE AINT SHIT WRONG WITH ME BUT SEPARATION ANXIETY THATS IT!
              YOU CANT TAKE A CHILD AWAY DUE TO PAST MENTAL ILLNESS WHILE BEING A CHILD
              ITS MFS WHO ARE SICK IN THE HEAD ON DRUGS DOING CRACK AND STILL HAVE THEY MFN KIDS AND DCFS WONT DO SHIT ABOUT IT
              ADA
              (AMERICAN WITH DISABILITY ACT) EXISTS YOU CANT JUDGE SOMEONE BASED ON ITS COVER WITHOUT KNOWING FROM BOTH SIDES
              THERE 2 SIDES TO EVERY STORY!

              1. Here’s what happened

                DCFS did everything to sabotage and stall the process at the same time so Angela would not be placed with me. They were working against me and Shakyra the whole time in her Dcfs case. It has been an uphill battle from day one. They didnt like me because I asked questions and they don’t have legitimate answers and they know it. They put TIME on their side. If they would have told me to get a foster care license in the beginning on day one I would have but they did not request that from me until a year and a half later on November 4, 2019 and they know it takes six months to one year to get licensed. Elizabeth C told me that herself. Then Covid hit, that slowed my process way down.
                During court on January 16, 2019 Judge W ordered Elizabeth C to submit the ICPC that day after the initial trial and she did not. This trial took 8 months when you’re supposed to have this trial within thirty days of the child being taken into custody. The DA Trisha R and Elizabeth C were working together to stall the case on purpose. They gave every excuse under the sun why they weren’t ready for trial and how they could not get their witness and how their witnesses were not available during the holidays and so on and so on
                Shakyra’s first attorney Gregory B at the time was so frustrated that they were prolonging the case. He said her case is NOT a DCFS case that it’s a family matter! The transcript will tell you he kept objecting about prolonging the case saying that feelings and attachments for the baby will grow and that it will complicate things but, it seems that the judge always sides with the DCFS department on everything about everything. It seems everyday people can’t win in court…Gregory B kept asking for the ICPC be put in for Angela to be placed with me from the beginning of this case but, the request kept being denied based on the fact that we hadn’t had the trial to say whether or not Angela should be in Child Protective Services at all. We had court for status on the ICPC on February 28, 2019 and Eilzabeth C still did not submit it. Get the transcripts where you will see that Judge W
                scolded Elizabeth C and called her behavior “Bizarre” for not submitting the ICPC and noticing that she did not like me. He stated that it was not her decision, it was his and it did not matter whether or not she or the department liked me, the focus was what is best for Angela. He pointed out that it seemed like she was fearful that I would be approved, so he ordered her to expedite the paperwork and bring it to him to sign. So she stalled the process even further. March court date came, she still had not submitted it saying that I was the great aunt of Angela so it could not be expedited. Judge W rolled his eyes and shook his head in frustration. April not submitted. She gave every excuse under the sun not to submit the ICPC to again put TIME on her side.
                At this time Shakyra was pregnant with her 2nd baby and due to give birth early May 2019. It took Elizabeth C
                5 Months to submit the ICPC. She finally submitted it On May 6, 2019. The hospital on the day where Shakyra was giving birth to her second daughter in Elgin, IL received a fax from Elizabeth C requesting the hospital to send Shakyra’s new baby to Wisconsin when she delivers. WHAT!!! Thank God we have really good caseworkers and investigators in my county.
                Kane County, IL DCFS Investigator came to the hospital to investigate the situation. We told her our side of the story. She called Elizabeth C and asked why the first baby was not placed with me. She told her because, “I think Ms. Walker will give Shakyra her baby back.” Michele says she was appalled at her response. She said that that is not a reason not to place the baby with the family where she belongs. Michele said that if she gave the judge that answer in Illinois she would be fined and thrown in jail. So she refused and DENIED Elizabeth C request to send the new baby to her and placed Shakyra’s new baby with me based on the fact that Shakyra had an open case in Wisconsin and that Elizabeth C had no jurisdiction to have either baby in custody because Shakyra has NEVER been a resident in the state of Wisconsin. The baby is supposed to go where the mother lives regardless of where she gave birth.
                My home study was completed and received by Elizabeth C July 2019 and she NEVER gave the results to the judge or me. Judge W told her to get a court date on the books when she got the results back so he could make a decision and she withheld the results and continued to lie and make excuses about it. She kept stalling and saying that she didn’t get the results back yet but, Brad B confirmed to me that she did have it because they were emailing back and forth about it. I also called Carrie P and she told me it was received and that I was approved. Shakyra called and spoke with Carrie also and she told Shakyra that Kenosha DCFS was asking her to deny the ICPC for me. She said that she couldn’t because there were no grounds to deny it if I was approved by Illinois. I called Nancy R the lead Supervisor at the time for Kenosha DCFS and told her about the situation and asked her to look into the case for me but she was not happy that Carrie told me that my home study was approved. She also stated that for all the reasons that DCFS has given for why Shakyra’s baby has been taken away you can’t take away someone’s child for any of those reasons but, she was not willing to come to court to testify to say it on record. She did not want to tell the judge that he is wrong for his decisions in the case. I asked her to help us and she said she would look into it but my future calls remain unreturned and now she is retired.
                Shakyra and I have complained so many times to Kenosha DCFS that Jackie is not properly taking care of Angela and we are concerned about her well being and it has always fallen on deaf ears. Kenosha DCFS always takes up for Jackie and it’s not right that they support Jackie’s feelings and wants over what’s best for Angela. We feel and believe we are being discriminated against since the very beginning of this case. Elizabeth C has built this whole case on lies and she should be reprimanded for it. She has always talked mean and degrading to Shakyra and me. They have bullied Shakyra and said mean, nasty, and degrading things to her on record she records everything they say to her on audio and video. Shakyra will not sign over her rights to them only to me. So because she won’t , Kenosha DCFS and Ericka R the DA have shut me out of vististations and court proceedings to try to isolate her and pressure her to give up her rights.
                I am a relative according to Illinois law which should be considered since the mom is an Illinois resident. I am the only one here that can help them keep their birth family connections to other blood relatives in my community and help them establish their birth roots and identity. Jackie cant and will not help keep family connections. Who is Angela supposed to identify with? I participated in in person visitation with Angela since 8 months old and brought her sister to in person visits so they could bond and I could bond with them together and everything was going fine until the supervisors found out that I was going to visits and they have cut off my visits and they have cut off the sibling visits too which is a violation against their sibling rights. We did Zoom visits when Covid came. Now they have taken all visits away from me. Angela has bonded with me too and I have bonded with her and it’s wrong to take that away for no good reason. They don’t give a reason for why my visits have stopped and why the siblings can’t visit anymore. We know that Jackie the Wisconsin foster mom is not happy with the siblings visiting and with me visiting because she knows that I want Angela placed with me and she does not support Angela going home to be with family. Jackie Wants to keep Angela and exploit her for money

          2. At the end of January 2020 Brad B calls me in a hurry and asks me where I am in the process of getting my license? I told him that I was due to complete my classes on February 6, 2020 He said ok and hung up. What I didn’t know then that I know now is that he says that someone from Wisconsin called him to pressure him to make a decision on the ICPC right then and there. They gave him this story that I had more than enough time to get my license and this ICPC had been open since May 2019 but, what they failed to tell him is that they made me start the whole process all over again in November 2019. It was not fair to give me 2 months to get licensed and not tell Brad the whole truth about it. I could have supplied evidence but NO ONE asked me to provide proof that I was following through with the process of getting my license. Brad says that he denied me based on the fact that I did not have my license at the time and he wrote in the denial that the ICPC should be resubmitted when I obtained my foster care license. Which Kenosha is not willing to do. They sought after a denial and tricked and pressured Brad B into giving them the denial to have Angela placed with me. I’m family. This is not a denial based on a technical issue. Elizabeth told her supervisor Ron R that she called me by phone and told me I had until January 2020 to get my license and she is lying she has NEVER called me. You can not put a time limit on getting a license. I can only be responsible for what I have to do. I can not be responsible for others and how long it takes them to do what they need to do for me to get licensed. I was never notified about being denied for the ICPC. I was never afforded the appeal process for being denied which is wrong. I found out by contacting Annette H at the end of March 2020 to give her an update about my license and to ask how Angela was doing and that’s when she told me about the ICPC being denied. I told her that I was not aware that I was denied. She later called me with Supervisor Michelle L to talk about it. Michelle L felt that I did not agree that they (Kenosha DCFS) should be involved at all that I didn’t agree when they said Shakyra is out of touch with reality I never believed or saw any signs of mental illness come from Shakyra I’ve been around her since she was a baby. After losing her mother, she did have some issues when she was a child after losing her mother, she was all Shakyra, knew she was left traumatized losing her mother but she’s an adult now. Everybody has a past and no one should judge anyone for having a past something that happened to her when she was a child. I said It’s not fair Shakyra’s past as a child was used against her as an adult i said it doesn’t apply the same way she is stable and has been since she was 17. I said she is in touch with reality so she said that is why they are not going to place Angela with me and that they are letting Angela’s Foster parents adopt her. I never said that they should not be involved. I was only stating the facts of the case. I told them that I would not give up and I would continue preserving and do whatever I needed to do to bring Angela home where she belongs with me and her blood born sister to be raised together as one. There is no reason to separate them from each other and I have been asking for her to be placed with me since she was born. I was there at the hospital after Shakyra told me DCFS was trying to take Angela from her, I showed up immediately and told them I was interested in taking Angela at birth I was denied them there which is something THEY ARE NOT supposed to do. I am family I’ve always been Shakyra’s aunt. You don’t go to a hospital and take a mother’s child away without a chance being given Angela was the only child before her second daughter. DCFS lied in the report saying that Shakyra already had a child taken before Angela that is NOT true Angela is Shakyra’s first baby to ever be born. They made every excuse as to why Angela was taken every reason they have given is not an actual reason to take a child away from the parents.
            Elizabeth C couldn’t even tell Illinois DCFS why they were involved because she requested to take Shakyra’s 2nd baby Illinois DCFS said they weren’t going to put the 2nd baby with Kenosha because they didn’t have a valid reason to have Angela there was no reason she could give

    1. Shakira, I was a foster parent for many years. You aren’t fooling me. You didn’t walk the walk and your baby girl was held in foster care for probably 3 years. DCFS then terminated your parental rights. I know how this works. Jackie may be a terrible person but she certainly did not steal your child. Those decisions are made by DCFS and the judge.

      1. According to what’s in her lawsuit against dcf, those people did technically steal her baby away from her. Reagan was taken away from her out of her arms at birth right from the hospital for no reason. No drugs no alcohol no nothing was into play she does not drink or smoke at all. She does not have any form of mental illness or any kind.
        Dcf tricked her into signing her parental rights so they could avoid taking her case to trial because they knew she’d win her back there wasn’t really anything on her that is why they tried building her case off of lies. That is in the lawsuit against them also. I was there at her lawsuit court date. She’s innocent she did not do anything wrong to have her baby taken from the get go.

      2. Why are you guys teaming up on this girl for? Do you guys know what happened in her dcfs case? were any of you there at court? Or did you guys just only hear what jackie said & what ever she showed? I can tell ya right now jackie is lying about things with this one. I always knew something was fishy as to why she adopted Reagan & had her in her care. It never made sense to me until reading these comments hmmm what a shame what a disgusting disgrace of a human!

  14. I would encourage anyone with any information regarding Jacqueline accusing men of sexual abuse, to contact Josh Covellis attorney Michael Forella. Let’s get Josh out of Jacqueline’s grip. He doesn’t deserve this!!

    1. Neither did her ex before hum. She dragged him through the mud and treated him horribly through their divorce. All while screwing his best friend.

  15. Remember the best friend she was screwing around with on her ex before Covelli was Covelli, so seems to be serious character questions all around.

    1. Pretty sure Covelli has abandoned his kids for the better part of 2yrs and hasn’t provided ANYTHING to them even against court orders.

  16. This little group needs to get a life and quit trying to wreck these men because they think they’re untouchable. You girls need to go home to your families. Stop getting involved in shit that has nothing to do with you. 4th husbands the charm

      1. He may have stalked her, I don’t know. I do know that she has accused multiple men of sexual abuse/rape. I do not for one minute believe Josh sexually abused her. She filed a restraining order on him for stalking. That restraining order was denied and then she comes up with sexual assault that supposedly happened 1 month earlier. It doesn’t add up.

  17. This crazy bitch is posting stupid shit on her Facebook page. It’s hilarious proclaiming her innocence, lol she needs a fucking psychologist and some meds ASAP. And if she’s already on meds which she probably is they are not working. If you’ve ever been around her children, you can tell what a shitty parent she is. Her kids are assholes

  18. The social workers at DCFS do not want families reunited. I know for a fact that Katie Schroeder does not do her job. I know first hand how lazy and a liar she is.
