Jacqueline Laurita Melissa Gorga The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Jacqueline Laurita Shades Former Co-Star Melissa Gorga; Doesn’t Get Her ‘Purpose On The Show’ Plus Shares Her Feelings About The Current RHONJ Cast While Praising Former BFF Teresa Giudice

Throwing shade!

Jacqueline Laurita is speaking out about the current cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s also throwing some major shade at her former co-star Melissa Gorga.

During a recent Q & A interview with Bravo After Thoughts, the RHONJ alum admitted that she doesn’t really keep up with the show but tries to watch the reunions to be semi-current on the drama.

“Last season, I watched the first three episodes and then the reunions because I feel like I don’t have time to watch TV,” Jacqueline said. “But the reunions kind of tell me the whole story from the whole season. So I try to catch the reunions, that’s the best part.”

Despite their longtime feud, Jacqueline did praise her former BFF Teresa Giudice, confessing that Tre is “always good TV.”

However, Jacqueline can’t say the same for Melissa Gorga.

“I don’t really know Melissa’s purpose on the show,” Jacqueline confessed. “I mean, she looks good.”

Jacqueline then got real about her feelings surrounding the current group of NJ Housewives.

She said that these days the Housewives “aware of the cameras” and know “what kind of drama to bring.” Adding that the Housewives seem to be “just playing to the cameras” instead of being themselves.

“I just wish people would be more themselves and say what they’re really thinking and feeling,” she explained. “I feel like everyone is not really being honest and true to themselves. That’s kind of the vibe I’m getting […] I think if everyone just kept it real, then it would be, like, an even better show, you know?”

As for if she would ever return to RHONJ, Jacqueline said that she wouldn’t as she currently loves living in Las Vegas.

“No, I think I love it here, and I think that I’m over that show,” she revealed. “It just became so toxic and stressful all the time, and I just think that [in] this stage in my life … I was ready to pass the torch to someone else and move on.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo for season 11 in early 2021.
