Let’s spill some behind-the-scenes tea!
During season 6 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, many fans assumed that Jacqueline Laurita wasn’t a Housewife because Bravo didn’t ask her back and instead demoted her to a friend of the Housewives. However, Jacqueline has always maintained this rumor wasn’t true and claimed that was asked back for season 6 but turned it down.
This rumor was FINALLY put to rest in a never aired scene from the season 7 reunion when Andy Cohen backed up Jacqueline’s claims and confirmed she was in fact asked to come back for season 6.
Despite clearing up this rumor at the reunion, Jacqueline wasn’t satisfied and took to Instagram to make sure all her fans and haters heard the truth loud and clear.
Jacqueline wrote, “Just wanted to clear this up to the people (especially the nasties) who thought I had been fired last year. It was my choice to leave and my choice to come back. So there!”
Honestly, we all know why Jac came back for season 7 and it has a lot to do with dollar signs. I think Jacqueline had hoped she’d play a bigger role on Manzo’d and decided not come back to RHONJ but then needed the money. I’m curious if Jac will be back for season 8. I honestly don’t know how they can have both her and Teresa come back because it will be the same old drama yet again.
