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.
We reported back in March that Chris andJacqueline were in default on their Franklin Lakes McMansion. Shortly after the news hit the web, Jacqueline hit back at the reports, saying that they were not in foreclosure and were simply modifying their mortgage. They were previously paying over $10,000 per month!
According to TMZ, Jacqueline was able to make a deal with the bank before the default case headed to court and the case was dismissed on April 17th, just days before Jacqueline spoke out to explain the modification.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke toTom Murro of FoxCT last night to deny and explain the charges. Tom reveals that Jacqueline was essentially cornered and forced to address the situation. Sounds RHONJ-ish.
"Thank you for all who were concerned, but my house is NOT in foreclosure. There is no threat of losing it. We simply modified our mortgage which is a process," Jacqueline insisted. "Our mortgage modification has been approved and all is good."
All Things Real Housewives reports that this season the subject of Albert's extramarital activities will be under scrutiny. “Women are coming forward revealing Albert cheats on Caroline,” a source reveals. “It has gotten to the point where it was unavoidable and had to be addressed on-camera.”
