The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita has been struggling over the past five years with her son, who was diagnosed with autism. For Laurita, it has been an emotional struggle as she revealed that she felt a tremendous amount of guilt for not giving him everything she felt he deserved. While filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey, fans saw Jacqueline try just about everything to help her son.
Jacqueline Laurita has been out of the spotlight for a while, as she has been taking care of her son and raising her children in New Jersey. Laurita did make an appearance during the last episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe learned of their sentences. Laurita was clearly heartbroken.
According to a new tweet, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that things are going great since filming that little scene. In fact, when it comes to Nicholas, there are nothing but positive things to say.
“At 5 years old, my son may not be able to hold a conversation yet, but he’s reading & spelling things like MickeyMouse clubhouse & Baby Prodigy,” Jacqueline Laurita revealed about Nicholas’ progress, adding, “Nicholas just looked up the Barber Shape Quartet on his iPad all on his own. Yesterday he typed out Minnie Mouse Bowtique. Incredible memory!”
But just because she isn’t filming the show anymore doesn’t mean that Laurita is completely done with the spotlight. According to the Inquisitr, Jacqueline has been working on making a return to the show. Now that Teresa Giudice is locked up, Bravo has been looking for potential replacements. Since the show didn’t blow ratings out of the water last season, it is possible that it wouldn’t do well without a familiar face.
It is also possible that Kathy Wakile will return, as she and Jacqueline have become good friends. Rumor has it that Melissa Gorga will return as a downgraded housewife, and Dina Manzo won’t return at all.
Even if Jacqueline Laurita doesn’t return to the show, she has plenty in the works. Laurita has been working on two separate books about her journey with autism and personal beauty. It sounds like she has been able to create a balanced life, where she can both take care of her son, and work on her books.
