The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita has made it no secret that she has a few issues with Dina Manzo. However, their issues have yet to be hashed out on the show, despite Laurita’s mid-season return earlier this year.
While fans have been led to believe Laurita chose to keep her family drama off the show, a new report claims that wasn’t the case. According to Rumorfix’s Real Mr. Housewife, a source recently came forward, claiming Laurita and Manzo did address their issues on camera, but the footage mysteriously disappeared.
“The footage is mostly about Chris opening up as to why he is upset with Dina and, surprisingly, he details how Jacqueline was the one encouraging them to have a relationship,” the source explained. “Chris says it was always Jacqueline who has tried to mend their family.”
“Jacqueline just talks about the fact that she doesn’t hate Dina, that she is just frustrated with not being able to get through to her.”
Throughout the year, Manzo has claimed it was Laurita who had caused a rift between her and her family. However, Laurita’s husband, Chris, set the record straight when he and Manzo came face-to-face.
“It should be noted that Chris also addresses the fact that the reason he is upset with Dina has absolutely nothing to do with Jacqueline,” the source claimed. “She truly isn’t the reason they have issues.”
Although it has yet to be confirmed, the Inquisitr reported last month that Bravo was planning to bring Laurita back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey as a full-time housewife.
“Production has made it very clear that they want Jacqueline back [on The Real Housewives of New Jersey],” a show insider told Radar Online last month. “And they don’t want her back just for cameos, either. Production is planning to offer Jacqueline as a contract for a full-time housewife.”
“It was very clear with an examination of the ratings that Jacqueline’s appearance had a huge impact on the show,” the source continued. “Bravo is certain that with her back on the show, the ratings would continue to be strong.”
Also last month, Laurita shared a message with fans on Twitter, which, as the Inquisitr reported, seemed to hint at a possible reunion with Manzo.
The message read, “I’m happy in my life. I have a lot of great things coming up. Those that want to be a part of my life can be there.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Secrets Revealed part 2 airs tonight, November 20, on Bravo at 8 p.m.
