Anyone who thought this upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was going to be boring is going to be sadly mistaken. If the reports are to be believed, there is as much unrest among the cast – both new and old. There have been reports of vacation fights, threats to expose cheating spouses and more. And it seems that returning housewife Jacqueline Laurita is finding herself right in the middle of the mess.
Although Jac seems to have given up her pastime of Tipsy Tweeting (those were the days!), she’s still truth bombing, but over on Instagram instead. And most likely sober.
Since the cast trip to Vermont, Jacqueline has been sharing a lot of telling quotes. “When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting other people will eventually see the truth just like you did.” And “When a narcissist can no longer control you, they will instead try to control how others see you.”
When a follower accused Jacqueline of digging at Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, she basically confirmed it, at least in Melissa’s case. The follower blasted, “Gee, I wonder if this is some dig at Teresa & Melissa? Rumor has it Jac started all the drama in this past trip to VT. Are you really gonna start in with “Joe cheated on Teresa while she was in jail” Are we really going there, again? She just got out and he’s going away soon. Leave them alone already.”
Jacqueline fired back, “No…I’m not. That was an article put out by someone from their camp in an attempt to discredit me. I think Melissa is scared I might talk about her since she played dirty with me so she is preparing her audience.” Sounds like she isn’t going to sit back and take any shit this time around….
The infamous annual Posche Fashion Show was last night and it looks like Jacs was in attendance but not Teresa or Melissa. And in what feels like some major shade, there was an Autism Speaks event earlier this week, thrown by newbie Robyn Levy (the one Jacqueline reportedly fought with in Vermont) and Jacqueline wasn’t there, but Melissa and Teresa and their husbands were.
Jacqueline shared a photo with Kim D. from the Posche Fashion Show and some followers warned her that Kim was bad news. She defended her, “Kim is actually a very nice, generous and funny person! She sometimes gets manipulated by others because she is loyal. She may do and say bad things at times but at least she takes ownership of it. Unlike others.”
Jacqueline also defended the rest of the cast, saying that they are ALL relevant, not just one person “makes” the show. “We have to film with and talk about whoever is casted on the show. Whatever happens is real, not scripted, although sometimes you are put in situations you normally wouldn’t be in. If you notice, everyone talks about everyone on the show, so nobody is talking about anyone to stay “relevant” because we all already are.”
“Clearly it’s not a one man show. Even Teresa Checks In had the Gorgas on it. It takes a cast to make a show. You have to ask yourself what makes each person relevant. It’s not always something to be proud of. Everyone is relevant.”
Yep, it’s going to be a rocky ride, y’all.
