Jacqueline Laurita is once again officially confirming she’s not returning to the Real Housewives of New Jersey for season 8.
While ET reports that Jacqueline had yet to confirm her exit from RHONJ, the former Housewife had actually confirmed her exit via social media multiple times; claiming that money was the reason she would not be returning.
However, now Jacqueline is singing another tune completely.
“Unfortunately, I will not be returning,”Jacqueline tells ET. “I think the feeling [from the network] is that I no longer have an authentic connection with two of the season’s cast members.”
Apparently, Jacqueline is referring to Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga who she both had major drama with during season 7.
Adding,“I think they feel I no longer fit in with the group.”
Jacqueline claims she was offered a part-time position with the option of a full-time role “depending on how my story unfolded and if I meshed with the group.”
But Jacqueline says she turned them down saying,“I just felt that after being on the show for seven years and putting my time and everything into that, to not have a confirmed full-time decision, with that feeling that I had to kind of try out again, it just didn’t feel right.”
Previously, Jacqueline admitted on Twitter that she wanted full-time pay for a part-time position and when Bravo said no she walked away from the show.
However, now Jacqueline claims it was never about the money; saying she never discussed money with Bravo.
“No, we didn’t even talk money. We didn’t even get that far!” Jacqueline claims.
While Jacqueline doesn’t have anything else to say about her role on season 8, she can confirm Danielle Staub is filming for the upcoming season.
“I know she is filming, but I don’t know if it has been decided if she is a housewife yet,” Jacqueline says.
As for her own future on RHONJ, Jacqueline says the door is still open.
“A full-time position is worth it; it is worth the aggravation!” Jacqueline admits.
I just have to laugh at this so hard. Jacqueline constantly contradicts herself. On Twitter last week Bravo’s offer for season 8 wasn’t worth her time or money now she not returning because of her relationship with Mel and Tre. Make your mind up Jacqueline and stick to one story.
