‘RHONJ’ Drama: Cast Member Removed After Threatening Jacqueline Laurita [Report]

Season 7 of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t even have a premiere date yet, but it looks like the crazy drama has already started.

Real Mr. Housewife is reporting that returning cast member Jacqueline Laurita was involved in some serious drama with a new cast member joining the New Jersey edition of the Housewives franchise this coming season, which allegedly got so bad that Bravo’s lawyers are now involved.

According to the site, The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s newest cast member Robyn Levy was at the center of the latest Housewives drama after a production insider revealed to Real Mr. Housewife that the newbie stirred up some serious trouble as she “tried to make a scene for herself to try to be a full time Housewife” during a Real Housewives cast trip to Vermont.

Real Mr. Housewife’s source is alleging that the newest Housewives recruit was attempting to get herself some airtime for the upcoming season of the reality show and supposedly “attempted to pick a huge fight with Jacqueline Laurita” that also involved fan favorite cast member and Teresa Giudice’s cousin, Rosie Pierri.

However, Levy’s attempts to stir up drama between her and Jacqueline Laurita supposedly didn’t go over too well with the veteran housewife, as the insider revealed that Laurita “laughed her off” following Robyn’s alleged on-camera outburst, which then “enraged Robyn more.”

That’s when the Real Housewives of New Jersey production insider revealed that things turned serious between Laurita and Levy, as the source admitted that “Robyn made threats to Jacqueline, threatening physical harm against her,” resulting in Bravo removing the new housewife from the group’s East Coast trip completely.

“Bravo had her and her wife, Christina Flores, removed from the cast trip,” Real Mr. Housewife’s source revealed of the drama, adding that the network “will not tolerate violent threats being made.”

The site is also revealing that Robyn’s plan to create drama on the Real Housewives of New Jersey trip to Vermont completely backfired, as she is allegedly no longer being considered to become a “full time Housewives cast member” alongside confirmed returnees Jacqueline, Teresa, and Melissa Gorga as a result of her actions.

Radar Online also reported that there was a serious blow out between the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast earlier this week and alleged that Laurita also opted to head back to New Jersey following the fight.

“Jacqueline went crazy last night,” a Real Housewives source told the site on March 10, adding that there was a serious fight between the ladies “involving Jacqueline Laurita.” Sources also confessed to the site that Jacqueline and “one of the add-on cast members” both headed back to the Garden state, cutting their trip short.

The new drama between Jacqueline and Robyn Levy comes shortly after Jacqueline Laurita confirmed to the Daily Dish that we probably won’t be seeing the drama we’ve come to expect from her and Teresa Giudice on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Jacqueline revealed to the site last month that she and Teresa, who infamously fought during Seasons 4 and 5 of the series, are actually working on their relationship as cameras role for the upcoming seventh season.

“It’s been a roller coaster at times, but we’re trying to get back on track and stay on track because there’s a history there, you fight harder,” Jacqueline said of her and Teresa’s relationship last month.

“It’s like when you have family,” Laurita continued, even describing Giudice as being like her “sister.”

“We’ve had falling outs. It’s like the work we’re both putting in trying to repair the damage that’s been done. And so it’s not always easy,” Laurita revealed of the pairs’ past Real Housewives of New Jersey drama to the Daily Dish.

“There’s a journey that we’re going on, and when you have the right people around you that want to encourage a friendship, then it helps because you have the right people in your ear trying to help you guys find your way,” Jacqueline Laurita added.

Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to premiere later this year.
