A day after In Touch Weekly reported she used to be a former stripper, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is now denying the report… sort of.

At first it appeared Jacqueline wasn’t going to respond to the shocking report, but she eventually did on Wednesday night when she took to her twitter page and wrote: “Chris and I want to share with you our wedding song…” The tweet included a link to a song by artist T-Pain titled “I’m In Love With A Stripper.”

Jacqueline later tweeted: “ITS A JOKE!!! GET IT????” She then added, “In case you were wondering… No, the rumors aren’t true. ( You know the ones;0) ).”

Jacqueline’s former friend and RHONJ costar Danielle Staub also chimed in yesterday, maintaining Jacqueline was indeed a past stripper.

Hours after the report came out yesterday, Danielle, who has admitted to being a former stripper and then some, tweeted: “It only takes a moment to tell a lie but a lifetime to cover up! The truth always comes out! I’m proud that I’ve always kept it real.”

And when a fan asked Danielle why she never revealed Jacqueline’s alleged secret (though she sort of did weeks ago), Danielle replied: “That’s bc I’m not a backstabbing bitch I kept it to myself bc JL was so weak and asked me to not say anything.”

As we reported yesterday, Teresa Giudice also insinuated Jacqueline was a former stripper when she tweeted last month that she had “lots of ex-stripper friends…”She made that tweet the same day Jacqueline was making negative tweets about her.

As for Jacqueline’s friendship with Teresa UsWeekly is reporting that it is over for good and that Jacqueline has vowed she “will never speak to Teresa again.” She definitely has good reason as Jacqueline believes Teresa was the one who supplied In Touch Weekly with the stripper story.

The source reveals that Caroline Manzo is also done with Tre, stating that Caroline hasn’t spoken to Teresa in months.” Our RHONJ insider told us the same thing weeks ago stating Caroline was NOT on speaking terms with Teresa, even before the Posche Fashion show drama. “Every time they get together to film, everyone’s fighting with Teresa,” says the source to UsWeekly. The ladies just wrapped up filming on season 4.

Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga added: “Caroline is upset over the charade.” When it comes to the status of the Gorga/Giudice relationship, sources reveal it’s still definitely strained. “Teresa and Melissa still communicate for family stuff, but things are strained,” a show insider states.

As for the reunion drama, Melissa admits, “It was dramatic and painful to watch.”

Meanwhile, perhaps to further clear up the rumors that she met her hubby Chris Laurita while stripping, Jacqueline revealed on her blog today on exactly how she met her husband. Jacqueline wrote that she met Chris in “the summer of 1996 when Ashley was only five years old,” adding that at the time, she was renting “a chair in a salon doing hair as a licensed cosmetologist in Las Vegas.”

Jacqueline reveals she also did some modeling back then for “conventions that came to town.”  Jacqueline says she “modeled clothes, shoes, accessories, electronics, computers” etc.  She states she actually met Chris in Chicago during a trade show she was working at.

On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey I breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!

The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!

As long as there has been reality television, there have been reality television feuds. And of course, as long as there have been Real Housewives, there have been Real Housewives feuds. Case in point, the current feud involving Teresa and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast!

If you watched the first half of the New Jersey reunion last week, you saw, as did the rest of the world, what would appear to be a very unlikely housewives’ feud between former friends and now enemies Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo. And as we learn on tonight’s reunion conclusion, the Guidice/Manzo blow-up seems to have undertones of Manzo versus Manzo as Teresa makes sure to bring up the discord between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo.

But first in an interview with People right after the reunion, Teresa claims to love her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga despite just telling In Touch Weekly that Melissa married her brother Joe Gorga for his money. “I love my family,” states Teresa. “I love Melissa. My brother is married to her for seven years… I’m trying to make things better.” Teresa adds: “They are trying to make it look like I’m hurting Melissa. But, if anything, I always stuck by her.” Always stuck by her???

When it comes to Caroline, Teresa plays the victim changes her tune, saying, “I don’t get Caroline’s problem with me. I never did anything to intentionally hurt people.” Maybe, maybe not, but I certainly never heard her apologize for unintentionally hurting people. Claiming she was “set up” by her cast mates on the reunion, Tre continues, “I never, ever got in between Dina and Caroline. It’s none of my business.” That may very well be the case, but one has to wonder, why does she even bring it up tonight then?

Maybe her reason is spite. Caroline did reveal on national television that Teresa recently called brother Joe an a$$hole. Family tit-for-tat, perhaps? You air my dirty laundry, I’ll air yours! Thankfully, Caroline has taken to her Bravo blog to clear up any confusion on her part.

She writes, “I don’t regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn’t hide my feelings. I didn’t see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga’s face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa’s true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn’t deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it.”

Caroline also touched on the comments Teresa made about her in her cookbook which included calling her 1/16th Italian. “It was never about the Italian remark, it was about the underhanded sneaky insults towards the rest of us followed by an insincere apology. I referred to her once as a modern day Lucille Ball because of her flighty “innocence” and goofy personality back in the day. To use my words as a defense against your insulting remarks towards my son is unbelievable. Apology not accepted.”

Discussing her issues with Dina, Caroline states that her reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet on the reunion had less to do with her pride and more to do with her parents. She says, “My fear in having this issue exposed had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about my parents.” She continues, “Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start.” Ouch!

Caroline continues to discuss the feud with her sister, admitting, “Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it’s a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I’m only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass.”

Dina echoes her sister’s sentiments, stating, “Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister. I wish all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives. As far as my relationship with my sister is concerned I’m sure in time things will mend itself.”

Caroline finishes up her blog by stating: “Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”

So Teresa didn’t cause the feud, she just brings it up tonight on the second half the reunion? I, for one, can’t wait to see the drama unfold. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s madness below. The conclusion of the reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 10PM ET.

Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!

First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did The Caroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!

*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

Bringing you an all new Real Housewives of New Jersey photo post today!

On October 12, Bravo’s RHONJ cast members — Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile – visited New York City to ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell. Missing in action was Jacqueline Laurita who has also been absent from recent publicity events and interviews for the show. No word yet on whether this is Bravo’s doing due to Jacqueline skipping the reunion, or perhaps it’s Jacqueline’s choice to skip these events. Either way, more photos of the cast below!

Also below Teresa Giudice hosted a birthday party for her daughters Audriana and Gabriella Giudice at Space Odyssey on October 9, 2011 in Englewood, New Jersey. Gabriella was celebrating her 7th birthday while Audriana turned 2! Those photos are also below!

Well, finally – finally – we reached the season finale to the arduous, tortuous, never-ending season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And it was kinda disappointing, no? Maybe cause we already knew what was happening real time.

Things start off with Melissa meeting with Teresa’s her stylist, because she is an over-the-hill wannabe pop star and over-the-hill wannabe pop stars need to look good! Really booby and trampy apparently = good. Melissa’s stylist, or is it Teresa’s stylist, suggests she wrap a scarf around her boobs and wear it as a shirt. Right. Let me get this straight: TWO WOMEN are paying this woman money to make them look like hookers and fighting over who she styles? There is some issue about how Teresa didn’t want her to also style Melissa. Maybe she wanted Melissa to actually look good?

While Terlissa’s stylist is there, Melissa gets a call from Teresa about the family photoshoot they are planning. Melissa claims this is the first family photo shoot she and Joe have been invited to and she is excited to put the past behind her and move forward. Why do I not believe her?
