Chris Laurita

Apparently the new additions to the Real Housewives of New Jersey are not producing the ratings that Bravo wants. Even though the newbies had an awesome hair-pulling costume wearing fight last Sunday, the number of viewers continues to decline.

So what is their solution to plummeting ratings? Bring back a fan favorite, Jacqueline Laurita! I wonder what her sister-in-law, Dina Manzo, thinks of the casting news?

Jacqueline Laurita is in hot water. Again.

Perhaps it’s a good thing Jacqueline left Real Housewives of New Jersey when she did because she certainly wouldn’t want her current legal mess playing out in front of the cameras. Then again, maybe the Bravo powers already have their hands full with Teresa Giudice‘s indictment! 

Jacqueline and husband Chris Laurita have been struggling for a while – they filed bankruptcy related to their former company Signature Apparel, but bankruptcy courts believe the Lauritas intentionally defrauded creditors and spent company proceeds for their own benefit – and they want them to repay $7.8 million dollars to creditors. The Lauritas are contesting this ruling and the case is due to go to trial. 

Then their house fell into foreclosure and there’s also issues with the IRS! Of course, they’re also being sued by Johnny Karagiorgis related to last season’s Posche 2 Brawl

Well things are getting even worse as the Signature Apparel bankruptcy takes another turn.

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
