Jacqueline Laurita may have left The Real Housewives of New Jersey because the show became too much for her. Laurita was heartbroken when her friendship with Teresa Giudice started crumbling. Laurita was upset because Giudice wasn’t open about her legal struggles and wasn’t telling her friends about the fraud charges.
Laurita decided to focus on Caroline Manzo’s family instead, as she has been filming a few episodes of Manzo’d With Children, which will air this fall on Bravo. However, it sounds like Laurita has been watching this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, because she knew everything about Victoria Gotti’s story that Rino had cheated on his wife.
According to a new RumorFix report, Jacqueline Laurita may have left the show, but she has no problem sharing her opinion about this rumor. And given her experience with the show, Jacqueline doesn’t think that the rumor is true.
Teresa Aprea and her husband, Rino, had been married, divorced, then remarried. Gotti revealed that Rino had told him that he had slept with Teresa’s mother, which led to their first divorce. Teresa’s mother, Santa Napolitano, hasn’t issued a statement since the episode aired.
“It’s unfortunate that people, especially when you are not castmates, including Victoria Gotti, purposely come on to Real Housewives of New Jersey just to start horrible rumors, especially about somebody’s mother and husband/father on national TV,” Jacqueline Laurita has said about the story.
“It seemed all too familiarly set up. Maybe someone felt threatened by Teresa and her family’s presence on the show and wanted to take them down a peg. I don’t know. I just don’t understand,” Jacqueline Laurita added.
Plus, Gotti claims that she is friends with Rino, but she was eager to share this rumor with the world, even though Rino had remarried Teresa. But it does seem odd that such a rumor would come up at this point in time. Many have assumed that Victoria was just trying to get back on television.
According to The Inquisitr, fans may be seeing more of Jacqueline in the future. She has supposedly been hired back on The Real Housewives of New Jersey because ratings were dropping due to the largely new cast. But getting Laurita back on the cast has proven to be a challenge.
Sources say that Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea didn’t want to film with Jacqueline, because they felt loyal to Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice. Producers supposedly made them film together. Nothing has been confirmed by Jacqueline or Bravo at this point.
