Chris And Jacqueline Laurita: New Movement In Signature Apparel Bankruptcy Case

It's mind-boggling that it has been almost five years since Signature Apparel Group filed for bankruptcy!  The company, owned by former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Chris Laurita and his brother Joseph filed for bankruptcy in late 2009, despite having record income of $250 million during the years of 2005-2009.  The bankruptcy has been held up by a number of a issues, namely the accusation that the Lauritas frivolously spent eight million dollars for personal use. 

According to the complaint at the time, Chris and Joseph were accused of "draining the company of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations,” the complaint filed November 2, 2010 alleged. “Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.”

This weekend is a busy one for Bravolebrities!  So many events going on – like Lauren Manzo's engagement party!

Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia gathered their friends and family at the Brownstone to celebrate their engagement tonight!  A few of the photos from the evening made their way to Instagram via Jacqueline Laurita and others and it looks like it was a good night – and a drama-free night!  So rare for a Bravo event, right? 

Among those in attendance to celebrate the upcoming marriage (which may be filmed for their spinoff show): Melissa and Joe Gorga, Jacs and Chris Laurita, Kathy and Rich Wakile and of course the proud parents – Caroline and Albert Manzo.  Caroline was even caught on camera dancing with her future son-in-law's father.  Since the show finished filming its first season already, I wonder if it was filmed for possible use in a second season?

It doesn't look like Dina or Teresa scored an invite…..

Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey Presents

Despite her decision to not participate in season six of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jacqueline Laurita is finding plenty of ways to keep herself busy!

At this week's Ringling Bros event, Jacs shared that she has been working on writing books! And thankfully it's not a marriage advice book or a cookbook!   She tells Life & Style that she and Chris are writing one about autism, "Right now, I’m really just enjoying time with my family and I’m writing a few books.  My husband and I are writing a book together about our journey with autism."

Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey Presents

I never thought I'd be so happy to write a post about past (or present) cast members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey!  After weeks of non-stop crazy drama and endless posts about Atlanta and Beverly Hills, I'm thrilled to see these ladies! Yes, you read that right, THRILLED. 

Caroline Manzo and her family and Jacqueline Laurita and her family (including kiddos C.J. and Nicholas) stepped out last night to attend "Ringling Bros." And "Barnum & Bailey" Presents "Legends" at Barclays Center in NYC. 

Along with Chris Laurita, Lauren Manzo, Vito Scalia, Albie Manzo, and Christopher Manzo, former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel also turned out, but sadly without her sweetheart Bryn.

Now that the RHONJ is no longer paying her mortgage, Jacqueline Laurita is selling her home! 

The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star is listing the 5,7000 square-foot Franklin Lakes home for $2.85M. The couple, who almost lost the home to foreclosure last year, paid $1.72 million for the manor-style home in 2001. 

Unfortunately for Jacqueline she is asking far more than the appraised value. The property is assessed for $2.2 M and carries a $34,000 PER YEAR property tax rate.

Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests. 

Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!

Below is the 2013 legal round up. 

Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots

Last week Johnny Karagiorgis was threatening to sue Bravo and other Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members related to a brawl that took place at the Moxie Salon/Posche 2 opening. Johnny believed producers and cast members conspired against him to lure into a confrontation and that the fight was pre-meditated for a storyline. 

On October 2nd Johnny and his wife Penny Karagiorgis officially filed a lawsuit in Hackensack, N.J! Named as defendants are Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita, Sirens Media LLC (the producers of RHONJ), NBC Universal (Bravo's parent company), Bravo Media, and Moxie Salon. Kim DePaola is not specifically named as a defendant despite everyone claiming she orchestrated at least part of the set-up! 

Johnny believes the incident was arranged to increase ratings. Jacqueline, on the other hand, denies any such incidents occurred!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 5

During filming the Real Housewives of New Jersey finale an massive brawl broke out between several of the castmembers (ahem… Jacqueline Laurita) and extra Johnny Karagiorgis. Poor Johnny – he just wanted to cozy up to the cameras! 

Johnny was accused of spreading rumors about Melissa Gorga's allegedly nefarious past which caused Poison to flip his spray on hair'd top. He was also accused of making nasty comments about Jacqueline's son Nicholas, which caused Chris Laurita to leap into the wackin', crackin' crazy.

Jacqueline, according to witnesses, even smacked Johnny in the head with her stiletto - an accusation she denies. Charges were filed against all parties but last week the matter was settled out of court and charges dropped. And of course, Bravo cut the entire fight scene from the finale footage!

Unfortunately all is NOT said and done! Word just emerged that Johnny will file a civil suit against Bravo for their role in instigating the fight. “Johnny plans to file civil charges against every – all three of the people from the show, Bravo, NBC, the production company and the security teams that didn’t stop the physical violence from happening,” a source revealed to Radar Online.
