Jacqueline Laurita

Jacqueline

Whether you loved her or hated her, Jacqueline Laurita was the main source of drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey last year. Without her antics, there would have been nothing to tweet about and nothing for the ladies to argue about at the reunion. Sure, it was tough to watch most of the time, but she at least gave the fans something to have an opinion about… even if your opinion wasn’t positive.

Nevertheless, even the most die hard fans of the show have to admit that it was in a real rut last season so it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Jacqueline is out of the picture.

Another week, another gallery of the reality TV stars showing off and sharing selfies and snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Above, Kim Richards shared, “So much Love & Laughs last night. #sisters #family #love #laughs”

Below you’ll find pics of Teen Mom 2 stars David Eason and Jenelle Evans showing off their new home, Dancing with the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd sharing the “joys” of motherhood, Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Briana Culberson celebrating their birthdays together, former Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler vacationing in Dubai, and more.

The battle of the boutiques rages on! The sequined jumpsuit (oh how our Jersey girls love a good sequined jumpsuit!) Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga wore for her birthday celebrations was an apparent source of irritation for Posche owner Kim DePaola. Turns out Kim D. had posted the exact same jumpsuit on her Posche instagram (twice) two weeks before Melissa wore it out for her birthday party over the weekend.

So naturally Kim did what all the reality stars and their sidekicks do: headed to social media. Kim let everyone know she spotted the copycat look immediately and she didn’t hold back her thoughts on the situation.

Jacqueline's demands

I always wonder what really happened when a Real Housewife says she is leaving a Real Housewives show “to pursue other opportunities” or some other vague statement about moving on. With some serious exceptions, I can’t imagine why anyone would quit a show with such a large platform, so I always find it tough to believe that any of these ladies leave of their own accord. Jacqueline Laurita came clean about why she will not be back on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

As a viewer, I am honestly not a fan of Jacqueline’s, but as a self-proclaimed reality TV expert, I feel like this show needs her around to provide opposition and controversy. Sure, I could do without the popcorn promotion and the plastic surgery testimonials, but without Jacqueline we are left watching a bunch of people who get along going on local trips and cooking Sunday dinners. Even the biggest Jacqueline haters have to admit that she does have a vital role on this show. Or at the very least she needs to be replaced with someone who has just as much (if not) more drama with the rest of the cast.

Real Housewives of New Jersey in Boca

Filming for Real Housewives of New Jersey is underway and (some of) the cast members took a trip down to Boca Raton to celebrate Melissa Gorga’s birthday. If you follow Siggy Flicker on Instagram, you know that she is a part-time Boca resident, so it makes sense that the ladies would head down there. Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania were on the girls trip as well.

I have no idea how interesting these episodes will be since these four ladies all seem to get along well, but I guess we will find out soon enough. I just wish that Jacqueline Laurita or Danielle Staub were there to keep things interesting, but I don’t blame Melissa for wanting to celebrate her birthday in peace.

Even though I was super excited to see what Teresa Giudice was going to be like post-prison when the last Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered, I was honestly pretty disappointed in the season overall. Pretty much nothing happened. Teresa became super zen and made up with Melissa Gorga and the only scandalous things that happened revolved around Jacqueline Laurita feuding with Teresa and/or Melissa. Now, I don’t know what to expect from the next season since it’s being reported that Jacqueline will not be a part of the cast!

I was usually a part of #TeamTeresa in her conflicts with Jacqueline, but now I feel like the next season is going to be boring without someone to fill that role as a villain. The original bad girl of RHONJ Danielle Staub will be back, but she’s on good terms with Teresa nowadays. I am not excited for a whole season of self-promotion and conflict-free episodes.

I hope that this isn’t true, but it seems like Jacqueline Laurita might be done with Real Housewives of New Jersey. There hasn’t been an official casting announcement, but a recent tweet that Jacqueline wrote has the RHONJ fans questioning whether or not she will have a future on the show.

Some of the Jacqueline haters might be happy at the thought, but hear me out. This show needs Jacqueline. Even if you are the most avid member of #TeamTeresa, this show will not work without Jacqueline. Or at the very least, the show needs someone in that opposing role.

Jacqueline's shirt

One thing that Real Housewives of New Jersey fans can agree about when it comes to Jacqueline Laurita is that she keeps it real when it comes to her cosmetic enhancements. As far as I can tell, she has always been open and honest when it comes to admitting what she has had done and when. In a not-so-shocking turn of events, Jacqueline has gone under the knife again and this time it’s for her fourth boob job.

That sounds like a lot, but when she breaks it to down to explain that she got her boobs done after each birth of all three of her kids and that she needed to get the silicone replaced every ten years, it does make sense. And of course, Jacqueline pulled the go-to card of being a reality star by managing to get the procedure done for free. I don’t even blame her for that. Who wouldn’t want something for free that they were going to get anyway?
