Jacqueline Laurita is returning to Real Housewives Of New Jersey again for the 7th season. Her reason: to finally have a showdown with estranged sister-in-law Dina Manzo!

Man – this a a page right out of the Melissa Gorga playbook! And hella desperate for some TV time

Rumor has it RHONJ season 7 has already started filming so they can capture Teresa Giudice as she heads to prison, and then focus on Joe Giudice as he tries to juggle a life without Teresa. And apparently, Jacqueline has signed on again so she can… talk about Teresa?! I mean, that’s been her storyline for like 4 seasons now, basically ever since Danielle Staub left when Jacqueline’s storyline was to talk about her. 


Jacqueline wants to confront Dina about what led to their falling out! “Why don’t u out the beef with Dina since she still won’t talk to the family anyhow, is it over the table flip night?” a viewer asked Jacqueline, on twitter, where else. Jacqueline’s response:

Hmmm.. not sure how that’s gonna work out as Dina has already announced she will not return to RHONJ. And she has thwarted an on-camera confrontation with Jacqueline all season, even going so far as to not show up at events where Jacqueline was invited. There was also drama at the RHONJ reunion, which Jacqueline was unable to attend due to the last-minute rescheduling, between Dina and Ashlee

The roots of Jacqueline and Dina’s fight reportedly stems back to season one of RHONJ where Dina felt Jacqueline and Caroline Manzo sold her out for television drama instead of supporting her in her feude agains Danielle, so she in returned forged an alliance with Teresa. A source told us that Jacqueline and her husband Chris have tried to reach out to Dina several times and been rebuffed. Dina has refused to allow family drama to become front and center on RHONJ. 

“It’s frustrating because I feel like it’s all petty, nonsense stuff, that all just seems silly and unimportant to me,” Jacqueline told All Things Real Housewives. “My husband is probably the most hurt by Dina. Maybe one day we can heal as a family like the Gorgas and Giudices did. Miracles have happened on #RHONJ. All it takes is for both parties to want it at the same time and be sincere about wanting it. (That’s the key.)” 

Jacqueline’s other reason for returning, however, is because she believes the ratings died with her departure (despite last season’s ratings also sucking!). I mean DUH! Oh and she’s also being paid $750,000 after turning down a spinoff! 


Here’s what I am hoping Jacqueline’s storyline is next season: the truth behind her own bankruptcy fraud! Jacqueline and Chris are currently in the middle of a court investigation and trying to settle with creditors. There was a story that they settled their bankruptcy for $1 million dollars, but further investigation proved that is not the case. Only one PORTION of the bankruptcy fraud was settled. They currently owe creditors $8 million and are accused, along with Chris’s brother, of funneling company monies from the now defunct Signature Apparel for personal use and then declaring bankruptcy. 

Oh and here’s an example of newly reformed Jacquelineliving within her means.”


 Man Bravo certainly is in the business of recycling Housewives as of late, aren’t they!
