The temporary truce between Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita has officially reached its end. Although Giudice and Laurita finally decided to set aside their differences this season, rumors involving Giudice’s husband have created yet another rift between the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars.
According to Radar Online, the relationship between the two women started to fall apart during the cast trip to Vermont. Apparently, Melissa Gorga was quickly dragged into the drama and decided to side with Giudice.
“The ladies had been getting along in recent weeks but that all came to a screeching halt in Vermont!… Things quickly went south after Robyn Levy threatened Jacqueline. Teresa and Melissa took Robyn’s side because they thought Jacqueline provoked her, and that made Jacqueline absolutely crazy.”
The argument between Levy and Laurita, according to the Hollywood Gossip, reached epic proportions. In fact, during their argument, Levy told Laurita that she would physically hurt her if she didn’t back down. Although the fight did not escalate to anything physical, Levy has a history of violence that includes an arrest back in 2013 for fighting in a bar.
Considering Levy’s past, Bravo producers decided to send Levy and her wife, Christina Flores, home. While the series has featured plenty of emotional fights in previous seasons, they do not indulge threats of violence. “Bravo had her and her wife, Christina Flores, removed from the cast trip. They will not tolerate violent threats being made,” an insider told the outlet. “In addition, due to her actions, Robyn has completely lost any chance she had at being a full time cast member.”
After learning about Levy’s violent past, Laurita has reached out to her Bravo lawyers. At this point, it isn’t clear if she plans on filing any charges against her co-star. Whatever ends up happening between the two, it is clear that their feud is not going away anytime soon.
Meanwhile, the inside source added that Laurita has been drumming up the drama behind-the-scenes. Once Teresa Giudice, who was recently released from jail, and Gorga found out about Laurita’s schemes, they quickly decided to part ways with her in an attempt to avoid further drama.
Unfortunately for Giudice, her decision to stand against Laurita created even more problems. In fact, Laurita is now threatening to expose all the dirt she knows about her former frenemy, including her husband’s alleged affair when she was behind bars.
“[Laurita is threatening] go public with all of Teresa and Melissa’s dirty laundry.. All of the rumors about Joe cheating on Teresa while she was in prison? Well, Jacqueline is ready to spill!”
Giudice served her time in jail after her and her husband were convicted of fraud. During her time in custody, it was rumored that Giudice’s husband had an affair, though no concrete evidence has surfaced to back up such claims.
Meanwhile, Laurita was so angry with Giudice and Gorga that she decided to leave the Vermont trip early. For the most part, she was mad at her fellow co-stars for taking Levy’s side instead of her own, which she naturally viewed was the right one.
As far as Giudice and Gorga are concerned, the two reality stars are not concerned about the fallout between them and Laurita. However, it will be interesting to see how they react if Laurita follows through with her promises and dishes out everything she knows about her co-stars. Either way, fans can expect plenty of drama when the hit reality series returns to television.
The new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to air sometime in 2016.
