EXCLUSIVE: Jacqueline Laurita Returning To The Real Housewives of New Jersey!

Jacqueline Laurita may be returning to her old stomping grounds…Bravo!! According to a ROCK SOLID source, Bravo cameras have been spotted filming (regularly) at the Laurita house and the network is planning to bring Jacqueline and her family back to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey!” The source could not confirm her role, if she would be full-time housewife or a friend of a housewife.

Twins, Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, their gal pal Amber Marchese and Jacqueline’s sister-in-law, Dina Manzo will all be a part of the season 6 RHONJ cast.

The source dished:

“The new girls are not working out well.”

Supposedly, Bravo is scrambling to pull a cohesive story line together for the season 6 premier, scheduled to air fall 2014.

The source spilled:

“The issue is balancing Teresa’s legal stuff and the family issues of the other ladies.”

Jacqueline tweeted the following which seemingly backs up the source’s claim:

“I’ve been getting a lot of Great offers & things happening lately. Believe in #positivethinking U have 2 B open 2 what the universe is trying 2 give u”

RHONJ

When Jacqueline was on the RHONJ, it was the source of a lot of stress and heartache as we watched her friendship with Teresa Giudice fall apart. Jacqueline and Teresa use to be BFF’s but when Teresa turned into a famewhore their friendship collapsed like a house of cards. Teresa started selling stories to magazines and stirring the pot with ambushes (strippergate).

Jacqueline tweeted:

“Wasn’t at season 3 reunion bc I was upset w/some people that I couldn’t discuss at reunion & was also during the height of my sons regression. I was at a point that I couldnt take anymore nonsense&wanted off show.Was Very depressed back then.After season4 my son got Autism diagnosis”

According to the source, Jacqueline is a changed woman and has learned to manage her stress better. She is ready to come back to the RHONJ, the source explained. Jacqueline herself expressed the same sentiment with the following tweet:

“BUT…. Things eventually got much better! :0) I’ve learned a lot since then. I’m in a happy place now. Always evolving.”

RHONJ

There was huge casting shakeup following the departure of veteran stars, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. Dina Manzo, estranged sister-in-law of Jacqueline, allegedly had a hand in getting them fired from the show.

How will Jacqueline returning to RHONJ change the dynamics of the show and her relationship with Dina since they are on non-speaking terms?

Do you want Jacqueline to come back to the RHONJ? Sound off in the comments.

    I always liked Jacqueline and I hope she is coming back. She always seemed like a fighter who would not easily give up!!

    • Same here. She seemed the most genuine to me. Not afraid to speak her mind, sometimes to a fault but she was genuine.

    • italiano bambino

      I like her too the way she handle tre on the reunion on season 4 was the best.

  • twifan2

    So the new girls aren’t working out…for who???
    Hope Bravo doesn’t edit them out too much! I want to see them slam Tre!

    • Me too!!! And I doubt the gossiping that the new girls will do will be edited out. Bravo loves drama and it makes sense that they would bring Jacqueline back to watch the fireworks between her and Dina explode!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I would LOVE to know what that meant!!!! “Aren’t working out” could mean so many things!!!

      • twifan2

        huuummm, Tre doesn’t want them on ‘her’ show?! 😉

        • Oh that’s right, Tre is the HBIC even being a convicted felon. Bitch has no room to speak. Have a seat.

          • twifan2

            OMG! She’s still hawking that hair stuff!
            AND it’s a great s̶t̶e̶a̶l̶ deal, I mean!
            FREE Shipping AND a FREE bottle of nail polish! Oh MY!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Could be that focus groups hate them when they’ve tested the outtakes.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          That would not be good for show at all!!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twi! Good question. I wonder why these ladies aren’t “working out”?

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
        I guess because they aren’t bowing down to Tre! 🙂

        • Marsbars09

          Or Mel or Dina! Don’t forget those two divas!

  • WestCoastFeed

    I hope this rumor is true. Of course, the Bravo crews could be at her house filming for the Manzo spin-off.

    • I hope so too, West! I like Jax.

    • twifan2

      I thought the filming was done by now?

      • Nope…Bravo is still actively filming

      • WestCoastFeed

        I don’t think so. Caroline said something about not letting production turn them spin-off into another unnatural spectacle.

        • twifan2

          WoW! I thought they started filming in Oct? THAT’S going to be A LOT OF FOOTAGE to go thru! 😮

          • It seems they are filming 2 seasons in one in anticipation of Tre going to the slammer

          • twifan2

            I’m talking about the Manzo spin-off.

          • ok

          • WestCoastFeed

            They filmed the Manzo pilot in October. It had to be sold before they moved into full scale production

          • twifan2

            Oh ok.
            But still all the overlapping of RHNJ & Manzo spin-off…o.0

      • Norrth

        Bravo has been known to get “additional footage” after a filming season so it wouldn’t surprise me. I thought they were filming right up through Teresa and Joe’s sentencing.

        • Marsbars09

          Now I understand the reason for the additional filming. Bravo probably wasn’t satisfied with the newbies so they asked Jac to return.

        • You’re correct. They are.

  • italiano bambino

    FUCK YES!!! I’m hoping for her to come back guess the zen ain’t cutting it. Happy to see her back.

    • twifan2

      BAM!!! 🙂
      Now, now-you know you luv, luv, luv Tre! ;D

      • italiano bambino

        Can’t stand the banshee

        • twifan2

          She sad now, Bam. 🙁

          • italiano bambino

            LMFAO twi

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I never felt like anything she said or did was sincere!!! Kind of a sneaky one!

    • Norrth

      LOL that, especially if it’s a reference to sleep inducing Dina.

      • italiano bambino

        Zina has no fun side the whole time she was on the show suck.

        • Norrth

          You are preaching the choir! I didn’t like her from the first episode. After the years of being married, why were people still referring to her as a gold digger, and why was she so proud of that (that was my interpretation of her response). She’s just ridiculous.

          • italiano bambino

            She’s was full of shit the whole time. Jaqueline telling everyone that dina was the one running her mouth about danielle that’s when I became a fan of jaqueline. I still think zina is pissed because of that.

          • Norrth

            Oh how I love that nickname–> Zina. When Jacq busted Zina, I started to love her. I wanted Andy Cohen to make her the lead HW after she busted Teresa and Joe! When push came to shove, Jacq stood with Caroline against Teresa. Only Zina turned on her family… now look! She’ll film with Teresa, but is reported to not want to film with Caroline and Jacq. She’s a real judge of character, that one.

    • Oh hell yeah. Dina is the fakest housewife right after Tre. She’s a famewhore who stop talking to her own family over a TV show like a spoiled brat. Can’t stand the fish.

      • Norrth

        I felt sorry for Caroline (who I’ll admit I disliked during the Danielle years) gave her and Lexi a place to live rent free. She let Dina “decorate” her home. She supported her in that messy wedding to Tommy, and got her a job “decorating” the Brownstone for weddings and running her little business (I believe). In the end, Dina treated her like she was gum on the bottom of her shoe. Not cool.

        Then Dina sided/was tricked by Bravo into siding with Teresa over her sister. Right. It will be interesting to see if the birds of a feather can fool the audience into believing they’re such great friends.

        Any, here, believe that Dina drove to Paterson to visit with Teresa in all the years they claim that they were great friends?

        • Great comment, Norrth. We are so >>here<< in thought process. Dina is an ungrateful user, who seems to think she's entitled to so much more than she gives. I hated the way she treated Danielle season one then had the nerve to come back season 2 talking all that zen crap! I saw right through her bs.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She’s the baby of the family and the prettiest girl. I suspect she’s been indulged from birth and grew up feeling entitled.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s it! Dina has a bad attitude and a great sense of entitlement. I asked Doc I wondered if Dina always thought she was more than she appeared to be. I guess the answer is yes.

          • Oh yes! Spoiled brat from day one. And Caroline treats her like she treats her kids.

          • Marsbars09

            True dat!

      • italiano bambino

        You know jaqueline is not going to let zina say bs

        • GOOD!!!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I hope you are right!!!!!

      • Marsbars09

        I wonder how Dina is taking the news?

        • She probably collapsed….lmao!!!!

  • italiano bambino

    🙂 great article PLONK

    • BLOOP!!! Hey Bam! 🙂

      • italiano bambino

        Hi seuss 🙂

  • Norrth

    I suspect that the heads of at least two housewives is exploding with this news. Such is life. 😉

    • Total meltdown and frantic phone calls. Bwahaha!!!

      • Norrth

        You don’t even have to post any other good news. This one will last me for WEEKS!

        • Ahahaha!!! 🙂

          Glad I could help.

    • Marsbars09

      Hell, I can’t believe it! I thought we were DONE with Jac.

    • italiano bambino

      Teresa, dina and Melissa are plotting to get her put at sap lol

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    @housewives_: @Teresa_Giudice looks for season 6 intro #RHONJ

    • She looks like an orange leathery man! Ughhhhh!!!!!!!!

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        Who needs birth control with that face!

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        Joe has to think about his girlfriend to get an erection!

        • He may be into men who knows that be the reason he commits so much crime. He’s dying to be in prison! LOL!

          • Marsbars09

            LOL! Great one Doc!

          • Thanks honey!!! 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            And great job with the exclusive! 🙂

          • Thanks Mars!!!!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    It’s World Autism Awareness Day today. Jac has been busy on twitter, in fact, she’s been very active for months supporting autism awareness.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi WCF! The people that truly support Autism are not going to be thrilled that one of it’s so-called ardent supporters is returning to that trashy franchise. No one will take Jac’s passion seriously.

      • Hi Marsie. I didn’t look at it from that point of view. I would think Jax could use the show as a platform to promote the cause and bring exposure.

        • Every family knows someone intimately with Autism. We are all fully AWARE. Having to raise a child with a disability is not new to the wold. It is hard work.

        • Marsbars09

          Uh Doc, Jac tried to do that last year and it ended up with her and Chris being charged with assault.
          Real Housewives is not the showcase to bring attention to Autism. I think Jac needs to stick with twitter or whatever organization she’s working with.

      • WestCoastFeed

        The filming may turn out to be for the Manzo spin-off. But I do suspect that Bravo has had to scramble for a coherent story this year and bringing Jac in could help.

  • Jac is filming Manzo’s Show right now

    • Marsbars09

      So I guess Jac is doing “double duty” now? She left RHNJ because of the stress and now she’s returning to it. Like I stated in a previous comment, she must really need the money.

      • jac n caroline left to film Manzo…..Dina refused to film w/her family.

        • twifan2

          If Zender gets dropped from HWNJ, you better believe she’ll film with her fambly Money talks! Zender’s ‘principles’ walk! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            That’s the thing with Zen, she always has so many reasons not to film!!!

          • twifan2

            Just SHOW HER THE $$$ & she’ll be there! 😀

        • Dina is a broke phony who would do anything for a check. She’s desperate right now since she stands to lose everything in her divorce.

          • Marsbars09

            I just thought of something. I wonder if Dina has always appeared to be more than she is.

          • She had money as Tommy Manzo’s wife but they are going through a divorce and they had an iron clad pre-nup. Dina is going to lose everything in the divorce. She desperately needs the Bravo paycheck.

        • Marsbars09

          Caro left to film Manzo. Jac was just simply fired and Caro decided to have her participate in her show.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Off course Jac would film with Caroline. That’s a given. Chris is Caroline’s brother. And the Manzo boys work for Chris promoting blk.

          • twifan2

            The boys seem to get along better with Jac than they do Zender. imo.

          • Marsbars09

            I wonder who Dina truly gets along with in her family. I get the impression she acts as if she doesn’t need them.

          • Marsbars09

            Why would it be a given Jac film with Caro? Just because you’re related to someone doesn’t mean you always reap any benefits.

          • WestCoastFeed

            It would be very strange if she didn’t film with them. They are very close and Caroline absolutely dotes on the Nicholas.

          • Marsbars09

            Not necessarily. Jac may decide she doesn’t want to appear on TV.

          • That’s correct.

  • Marsbars09

    The only reason Jac is returning is because she and her family need the money. I don’t see how her husband Chris could let this happen. Jac left due to the stress of the show and I’m certain she’s in no better shape than when she left. And what about the family dynamic of Dina and Jac? I’m sure Dina is not happy with this decision at all.

    Did Bravo decide to extend filming because the newbies “weren’t working out” and they added Jac at the last minute as a “filler”?
    The Real Housewives franchise has hit rock bottom. The only was they can stay afloat is to put the trashiest, most low class and volatile people on the show.

  • Manzo means beef

    • WestCoastFeed

      Giudice means judge or magistrate. Ironic.

      • BOOOOM!!!! #ConvictedFelons

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Do you think that Teresa has been keeping up her friendship with Jaq?

          • Jac said in a recent interview since they stopped filming, she hasn’t spoken to Tre but she is there for (if she wants it) during her rough time.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Well, I guess that’s some thing!!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            The day that Tre & Joe entered their guilty pleas, Jac tweeted something about praying for an old dear friend.

          • I remembered that and I also think Jax supports and cares about them.

          • Marsbars09

            And I bet you in return they don’t give two sh*ts about Jac or her problems.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And never have cared about Jac. And that’s why the rift happened in the first place. Just when Jac was out of her mind with worry about Nicholas and what his ailment was, all Teresa could think about was her vendetta against Melissa.

          • Marsbars09

            And that’s why I don’t understand why Jac gives one ounce of her energy towards the Giudices’. They’ve proven themselves to be the narcissists they are.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Well, she and Tre were close friends for ten years and had a lot of fun together.

          • Marsbars09

            WCF, you know their “friendship” wasn’t real.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I didn’t watch much of the first two seasons of NJ, but I gathered they enjoyed doing the same silly things together.

          • Marsbars09

            They may have enjoyed doing things with each other, but it wasn’t the genuine friendship Jac or the rest of the world thought it was.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Bingo! It was not at all the friendship that Jac thought it was.

          • twifan2

            Not a ‘true’ friendship like Mrs. Brown & Winnie! I love these two! 🙂

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjJc8xLYhak

          • WestCoastFeed

            Now, that’s real friendship!

          • twifan2

            LOL It really is! 😀

          • Exactly!!!

          • Of course not. Tre couldn’t even allow Jax her moment to talk about Nick at season 5 reunion. She cut her off and made about her.

  • “Manzo’d With Children (Working Title)”

    The pilot will follow the Housewife in her duties as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family.” Apparently, her adult children are driving her more nuts than ever: Albie is single and ready to mingle, Chris is eager to come up with the best idea since the stripper/car wash and Lauren is getting married. The pilot will include Caroline’s sister, Aunt Fran, who continues to bring in an assortment of barnyard buddies to the house. “It’s one crowded house filled with personality, laughter and ham… in both pig and honey-baked forms.”

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      I give it one season, two at most.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I’m looking forward to it. They are promising a happy and light hearted show. It’s about time that Bravo gave us some happy entertainment.

      • I hope it last beyond that but I think you’re right, Vince.

        Happy Hump Day!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    What was the date of the Project LadyBug Event that was supposedly the grand finale episode for season 6? At the end of the day on March 26th, Jac tweeted that she was so exhausted and the the next day was going to be another busy day. Could she have been filming in that grand finale episode, too?

    • uh huh! Bingo!!!!

      God…you’re GOOD!!!

  • TartLemon

    I’d much rather have Jac than Dina.

    • italiano bambino

      Hi tart

    • Hi Tart! Here here!

    • Tigerlily

      Oh yes TL! Any day. Heck every day!

      • Isn’t it funny how we all dislike Dina and see right through her phony ass. LOL!

        Hey TigerLily! *waving*

        • Tigerlily

          Hi Doc! {{{WAVES}}}
          Oh I have zero tolerance for Tre’s cheerleader & ass-licker!

          • LOL! That’s exactly what Dina is and she’s the worst kind because in reality she hates Tre. Word is, she can’t stand her but kissed up to her to get back on the show. Now that’s shady!

          • Marsbars09

            I didn’t know Dina hated Tre ? I just thought they had a fake friendship.

          • yeah….word is she can’t stand her.

          • Marsbars09

            These women are something else. Tre chooses Dina as a godmother for her daughter Audriana, and they had a fake friendship even then? That is just tragic as Audriana and her siblings need somebody REAL to help look after them once their lowlife parents go to prison.

          • Tigerlily

            Hey Dina!

          • Ahahahaha! Right on! 🙂

  • OT: Reports are coming in of an active shooter on Fort Hood. One military person dead. I pray for them!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Possibly two shooters. That would be very unusual

      • They just said they have the situation contained. This is tragic news.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Believed to be only one shooter who is dead.

          • oh ok, didn’t know that…thanks, West!

    • Tigerlily

      Oh God, please no! Not again.
      Thought & prayers for all!

    • Marsbars09

      That’s not the same place where the Muslim military officer/psychologist went postal several years back, is it?

  • Bryan

    “Ill drink to that”

    • Ahahahah! Oh…leave Jax alone!

      • Bryan

        That show does not need any of greasy guidos

        • I don’t consider Jax one. Kick off the convicts and then you’ll have a show!

          EDIT: Who’s that in your avi?

          • Bryan

            That means they all need to go including this drunk, she and her useless hubby have been doing their share of messing with the books enough to get them in trouble too, they are dirty they need to go

            Untreatable VD isn’t as bad as Mrs. Juicy.

          • Birdie11

            OH MY!!! That is hard to beat!!

          • Tigerlily

            Hi Birdie! 😀
            Hopefully as hard to beat as the prison time Joe & Tre deserve!

          • Bryan

            Well I can think of a few other things and any health related issue which cannot be treated would be one of them Mrs Juicy doesn’t affect me, the others would, so those would be worse LOL

          • Tigerlily

            I hear ya Bryan. lol

          • hardtimz

            LOL omg that is so crass…

          • twifan2

            Miley Cyrus crass?
            Or Tre crass? 😉

          • hardtimz

            LOL BOTH, but I like it…too funny.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s the perfect description for it, hard! LOL!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Nicholas is making more and more progress. He is speaking more and beginning to put words together. He can read, but he has been reading for some time. Jac showed a video of him reading aloud to her–just a couple of lines from a children’s picture book, but certainly a huge improvement over the non-verbal child he had been.

    • I saw that video and my heart melted. I did shed a tear. The little tike is too adorable for words. Bless that family. We’ll be seeing them again soon!!

    • Marsbars09

      I’m so glad to hear Nic making progress. Jac was so torn up about his diagnosis.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jac & Chris participating in ringing the closing bell at the NYSE along with others from Autism Speaks.

    • Marsbars09

      Now that’s great, positive publicity.

    • I love them as a couple. Good for them.

      OT: I’m reading the fights on Twitter and HOLY COW!!!!

      • Marsbars09

        Who’s fighting Doc?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Poor TEB. She is exhausted. One of the nicest women on twitter. If this is really Carole’s doing, Carole made a big mistake and just got herself of ton of enemies.

        • I can’t stand Carole, so that’s a good thing! TEB seems to have a big following.

        • check your email

  • Birdie11

    Jaq and her constant meddling, then whining about it afterwards makes me tired. I hope she has changed for the better.

    • I think we’ll see a different Jax. She’s had a lot of time to do self-reflection.

      • Marsbars09

        I don’t think so, Doc. I think Jac returned because she and her family need the money. You know they have their Franklin Lakes home on the market, that is, if it hasn’t sold already.

        • They need the money for sure. I do have a soft spot in my heart for Jax and her family. I like Chris and her adorable boys.

          • Birdie11

            I like Chris much more than her. I’ll bet he’s not too excited about this.

          • Marsbars09

            I agree, birdie. You can tell this reality TV business wasn’t his cup of tea.

          • hardtimz

            Good point Mars he seems to try to stay out of the nonsense w/being on a reality show!

          • I think he is for the paycheck but not the drama.

          • twifan2

            It also gives him ‘free publicity’ for their ‘products’.
            Bravo is ONE GIANT info-mercial anyways.

          • WestCoastFeed

            He did make a comment on twitter that I took to mean that they were back to filming. And it was not a happy tweet.

          • Marsbars09

            I’m sure Chris is sick and tired of the grind of having his personal business for the world to see. But I guess that’s what he has to sacrifice in order for Jac to earn that check.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi birdie! I agree. I don’t think Jac should have returned to the show as she was so stressed last season. The only reason she’s returning to this vicious cycle is because she needs the money.

      • Birdie11

        Hey Marsie! I’m sure…Jaq always plopping herself right in the middle of every drama nugget was exhausting.

  • Agstisme

    IMO the Laurita’s are nothing more than shady characters like rest of them. They are of suspicious moral character. They exploit their autistic son on national TV just like the Giudice’s exploit their children. I have 2 autistic grandsons. These children need to be sheltered and protected not paraded around like circus freaks. You heard it here first…we have not heard the last of the Laurita’s and it will have nothing to do with Bravo.

    • Hi Agstisme. Welcome the All About The Tea! 🙂

      I personally don’t think the Laurita’s would do anything to harm their children. Can you tell me what harm/effect the camera’s will have on Nick?

      • shayvoe

        Hi Doc…Jacs is not doing anything to hurt Nick. If anything, she is giving him a voice, by letting people see his progress, which could help other parents with autistic kids. As far as her coming back, if she needs the money, who am I to judge? She has a family to support and people will do anything to support their kids. I like Jacs and always have. I am glad she is coming back. And, I hope she makes Dina miserable while she’s at it…lol.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I like her, too. And all that extra therapy for Nick is expensive. I imagine that had a lot to do with their decision to come back.

          • shayvoe

            Yes…Very expensive.

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Shay! So nice of you to join us.
          I respect your opinion, but RHNJ is hardly the forum to highlight Autism awareness. I think Jac should just stick to tweeting or working with the Autism organization she’s involved with in promoting awareness on Autism.

          • shayvoe

            I disagree Mars. Any public forum, and especially one that reaches millions of people is the perfect platform. There are 10’s of thousands of parent’s watching this show with an autistic child. And, for those who are newly diagnosed, and are scared out of their wits, it is a good thing for them to see the progress that Nick is making, and that Autism doesn’t have to be the end of all the hopes and dreams they had for their child. I think it is a very good thing.

          • Marsbars09

            Are you stating the content of the show doesn’t matter as long as it highlights the awareness of Autism?

          • shayvoe

            I’m not sure what you mean. What does the content of the show have to do with parent’s getting a positive message about what an autistic child is able to accomplish? The kids aren’t watching the show.

          • Marsbars09

            You know, the trashiness and negativity that is RHNJ. If parents receive awareness on Autism despite what the show is about then it’s a bonus.
            And I sure hope kids aren’t watching the show, but you never know nowadays.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And she gets tweets from other parents who have kids with autism thanking her for sharing her story and sharing the resources that she has found helpful.

          • shayvoe

            She is definitely an advocate for her child and other’s as well. Good for her!

        • hardtimz

          Very good point and even better way to look at things, I have to imagine his therapy is probably quite costly.

          • shayvoe

            Yes…and we would do anything for our kids. Jacs is no exception, I think.

        • Hi Shay! I couldn’t have said it better. I know we’ve discussed this in the past and you have intimate knowledge of autism. Thank you for enlightening me with your intelligent perspective. I too like Jacqueline and her family. I’m hoping Bravo doesn’t screw this one up and we’ll get to see them again. Fingers crossed.

          • WestCoastFeed

            My only concern here is that Dina’s beef is now and has always been with Jac and not with Caroline. Caroline is very good at taking the heat for someone she cares for. Remember, she covered for Dina when Danielle accused her.

          • Marsbars09

            WCF, how do you know this? This is news to me. I thought Dina was angry with most of her family members?

          • WestCoastFeed

            No, Dina maintains that she just fights with two. That’s Caroline and Chris.

          • Marsbars09

            But you just stated Dina’s beef is with Jac?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes,, I think that Jac is the real reason. Caroline has managed to deflect it onto herself.

          • Marsbars09

            But why would she do this? It doesn’t make any sense. Jac is a grown woman that can take care of herself.

          • WestCoastFeed

            You saw how fragile Jac was when this came up before.

          • Marsbars09

            Sometimes I think Caro is a nosy bird who sticks her business where it does not belong.

          • And now she’s claiming she’s cordial with Caroline and does not speak to Jax.

          • Marsbars09

            Say what?! Dina is cuckoo for Coco Puffs just like Tre!
            RHNJ is the perfect forum for that nutjob!

          • LOL! Yes, she is!!

          • Tigerlily

            From what I know. Dina was supposedly PO’d that Jac spilled the beans that she, Dina, brought up & pulled out Danielle’s book.
            That’s when Caroline stood up & said, No it was ME!

          • Marsbars09

            Dina’s still pissed about that? Then the woman-child deserves to be alone.

          • Tigerlily

            Yup. That’s my understanding of the drama between her & Jac & Caroline & Chris. There could be more, but Idk.

          • I have a feeling Jax won’t indulge Dina and her bs and concentrate on Nick and her family. Dina is a weak minded idiot.

          • Birdie11

            That would be nice…and a switch from previous seasons.

          • Marsbars09

            Yeah. It’s a shame Dina is so self-absorbed she can’t acknowledge an ounce of support about her nephew’s diagnosis.

          • shayvoe

            Yes, Doc, my cousin is autistic and his mother is constantly trying to educate parents of newly diagnosed kids. The show is a great platform to educate the masses and especially parents of newly diagnosed kids. It will give them hope to watch Nick’s progress.

          • Marsbars09

            Shay, I remember you also stating your niece has an advanced degree in Special Education.

          • shayvoe

            I stated that she has her PhD, and is an associate professor in special ed, and taught special ed for 10 years before going back to school to get her PhD. Why do you ask?

          • Marsbars09

            I was just mentioning it due to our discussion about Autism and your knowledge about the disability. I also remembered you mentioning in the past your niece having a background in Special Education, that’s all.

          • shayvoe

            Aaaah…ok. Wasn’t sure if you were asking a question.

          • That is very comforting to know. Jac coming back provides a platform to help others. Make sense to me.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Ag! I think Jac returned to the show because she and her family need the money. Their home is currently for sale, so that tells you their need for dividends.
      I don’t think Jac should return due to the severe stress it caused her. Also, her sons need her and her being on TV just takes the way the precious time she needs to spend with her sons, especially baby Nic.
      And I agree Nic should not be on TV or his exposure should be limited.

    • twifan2

      Compared to the camera time Nick has had to what the Juicy’s kids have had-it’s not much at all.
      ALL children should be sheltered and protected, no matter the situation, imo.

      • Marsbars09

        True dat, Twi.

      • I agree but I wonder if Agstisme has a point about Autism and the cameras. I’m curious to hear a response.

        • twifan2

          I know some children with autism stare, follow some lights-maybe the colors of the light attracts them. Others, it’s some sounds. All kids are different. React differently.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Jac has said that cameras do not disturb Nick.

          • All About The Tea

            Ok, that’s what I needed to know. Thanks, West.

          • twifan2

            That’s good. He probably ‘ignores’ them.

          • Agstisme

            More likely he is “oblivious” to them.

          • twifan2

            Hence, the ignoring.
            I was glad to hear him speak on camera tho. 🙂

        • Agstisme

          The Laurita’s sole purpose for allowing Nicholas to be filmed was for their own personal/financial gain. I don’t watch the HW shows but I do follow their suspicious/criminal activities. I have been researching the Laurita’s for sometime now. It’s quite interesting.

          • All About The Tea

            Thanks. Have you uncovered anything in your research of the Laurita’s?

          • Agstisme

            I have. It is much to involved to post here. The questionable character of these individuals is out there.

          • I’m also curious. I would love to know also. Could you at least give us a hint or a synopsis?

          • All About The Tea

            We have a “tips” link above. Feel free to drop me a line.

          • WestCoastFeed

            is this something above and beyond the Signature Apparel bankruptcy?

          • That’s what I would like to know myself. Because that was a corporate bankruptcy not personal.

  • hardtimz

    If you’re in a happy place and evolving why move backward? Especially when you know exactly what type of format a reality consist of. I know, they need the money and have bills to pay like everybody else!!

    • Marsbars09

      Thank you hard! That’s what I previously commented. Jac left RHNJ due to the severe stress of the show. I think she’s only coming back because she and her family need the money.
      I guess the money is worth more than her peace of mind.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Nick’s therapy is very expensive.

        • Marsbars09

          I know WCF, hence Jac returning to the vicious cycle that is RHNJ.
          This is not good psychologically or mentally for Jac.

          • hardtimz

            At times, I don’t believe she liked being apart of all the fighting and backstabbing that went on.

          • Marsbars09

            I think that’s what drove her to drink at times.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Oh, Mars. Not you. too. A lie repeated enough times becomes the truth. Have you seen Jac drink any more than any of the other cast members?

          • Marsbars09

            I guess she & Joe Giudice tie in the amount of alcohol they consumed on the show.

          • Birdie11

            I think she DID…was drawn to it like a moth to flame…almost a compulsive need to be in the mix.

          • Marsbars09

            Like I stated previously, birdie, this reality TV business is a vicious cycle.

          • hardtimz

            Mars I could not agree with you more, it is very vicious!! But I think they become addicted to the fame and more of the fortune that has come along with being on a reality show.

          • Babson_Chick

            Don’t guess I’ll join up then……..

          • hardtimz

            And probably “contractual obligations” forced her to be apart of the whole scene.

          • Babson_Chick

            Maybe she has matured some since we last saw her.

          • Marsbars09

            No one changes that fast Babs. Jac is back because she needs the M-O-N-E-Y.

          • Babson_Chick

            Well, I sure was hoping that she had. I remember she always seemed to get involved with drama but couldn’t handle it.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Remember, she was a basket case because she didn’t yet know what was wrong with Nicholas.

          • Babson_Chick

            That’s true but she sure seemed to enjoy getting involved when she should have stepped back a little. She does seem to be one of the nicest on there and in a happy marriage. (as far as they’re shown us)

    • Hi Hardtimz! That’s just it….they must need the money and want to raise awareness about Autism.

      • Marsbars09

        Doc, I tend to lean towards they need the money more than having Nic on TV. I have a feeling they would prefer to keep Nic’s progress private.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Mars, she tweets about his progress all the time. She speaks at meetings frequently. She gives interviews often In fact one will be airing on a local station tonight. She even has let us know when he has had a regression again. She is very open.

          • Marsbars09

            I didn’t know that. Thanks for informing me.

          • hardtimz

            Well I get your point, but tweeting vs on a reality show feels different because the cameras will be in his face or vicinity.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And he does not mind cameras.

          • hardtimz

            okay.

          • Yes, I concur. I’ve seen her Twitter and she’s very open about Nick’s progress.

      • hardtimz

        Hey Doc, that’s the biggest issue is financial…

        • I think it a major part of their decision.

          • hardtimz

            Yes and you know with their son in need of on going therapy can get costly. So looking at things from that point, I understand. Because I don’t believe reality show people have the opportunities after they exit the shows the way they claim. Kinda why the k’s are willing to do anything to drag their show for as long as they can…once the lights are out…that’s it folks! Well Doc you have a great evening, maybe I’ll see ya tomorrow with a drank in my hand!!!

          • I agree with you 100%. Well said.

  • murlut

    Well I would rather watch her than Teresa anytime

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, murlut. So would I. And I think she and Melissa could have a lot of fun together. The Lauritas and Gorgas have tweeted about going out for dinner together.

      • murlut

        I agree. I have always like Jacqueline and I do think that she and Melissa do get along great
        I am sure without Teresa, everything will be better

    • Hi Murlut. This is GREAT news! I’e always liked Jacqueline.

  • Pinkie31

    NO !! I can’t stand the looks of her at all at anytime, God Help NJ.

  • ZammyB

    NOOOOO!!! Jax killed herself off that show seasons ago!

    Its just nutty now IMO to bring her back. Plus, Dina back is enough.

  • Raine Woman

    Somewhere in the land of Zen, Dina’s head just exploded. Now that’s a storyline I would tune in for!

  • italiano bambino

    The banshee was thinking she be the only original nj cast left…. think again

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hey, bambino. Maybe she’ll move over to MobWives and be the last one standing over there.

  • Babson_Chick

    Kinda surprising to hear that Jaq might be coming back, But this is Jersey so nothing should surprise me anymore!! Am sure they need the paycheck. Where would this cast be if they didn’t get a Bravo check??

  • WestCoastFeed

    Maybe Jac is coming back to resolve the “stilettogate” story. And how about those flying sinks? We need to know.. Oh, never mind, it’s still in court.

    • West, how has her Twitter activity been?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Well, currently she’s been entirely focused on autism. She’s speaking at a college campus today.

        • Thanks West.

          • WestCoastFeed

            How funny, Nataliya wants Teresa to get a restraining order against you. I just peeked at her TL

          • twifan2

            Against who, WCF?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Against Doc. She thinks our doctor is in the pay of Melissa.

          • twifan2

            You’re kidding?!
            A restraining order for being on the net?! Get Nat a butterfly NET! :/
            TOO FUNNY! 😀

          • WestCoastFeed

            I remember when she was convinced that I am Jac’s mother.

          • twifan2

            She wishes you were, WCF. Then she could say she had a friend on the inside for juicy gossip. ;D

          • WestCoastFeed

            It looks like her favorite blogger, Famewhorgas, has turned to blogging about right-wing conspiracy theories and has given up on trashing the Gorgas.

          • twifan2

            :/
            That’s a scary thought there, WCF. About the site now. smh

          • WestCoastFeed

            She seems to be a bigger nutcase than most of the Tre Huggers.

          • BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! What a raging psychopath Natalya is….we all know her from her antics on the “other” site. She’s just too dumb for words. I had to block her stupid ass. I was done entertaining her BS.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Melissa tweeted welcoming “her girls'” the Napolitano twins, to twitter. So much for old girls vs newbies rivalry. Or is there was one, it’s resolved now.

  • Andrew

    1) http://www.lifeandstylemag.com/posts/so-long-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-jacqueline-laurita-opens-up-for-the-first-time-about-life-post-show-35342 This was the interview Jacqueline gave confirming she wasn’t coming back.

    2) The source could’ve been talking about Jacqueline appearing on Carolines new spin off.

    3) @westcoast Perhaps the twins didn’t get along in the beginning, but now are fine. If the sources are correct, the twins and Amber are feuding.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, Andrew. That’s what’s being hinted at–that Amber is going to be this year’s villain.

      That Life & Style article lifted quotes from an earlier interview that Jac did and then added a bit more at the end. Circumstances may have changed. The Giudice life has been very unpredictable this year and Bravo may have needed Jac back.
      ;

    • Hi Andrew,

      The Life & Style article is not an interview with Jacqueline personally. It’s a cut and paste of quotes. In light of the recent “guilty” plea by the Giudice’s things may have changed drastically with the direction of the show. I happen to believe Jacqueline is coming back but you never know with these the networks. Things change overnight. Thanks for sharing your commentary.

    • twifan2

      But Andrew that article was published earlier this year. Who knows how much $$$ Jacs was offered to return by Bravo. If Bravo does need help with RHNJ’s story line, then they may have made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. 😉

      • Good point Twi. The money could help with Nick’s treatments.

    • Summer

      Hi Andrew

      i hoard the new girls didn’t get along with Melissa but a couple of months ago i heard the twins aren’t getting along with their friend amber i think i may have also read they’re not on speaking terms don’t no if that’s true tho.

      Do you no if their talking 2 each other.

      I also heard the old cast aren’t getting along with the new cast members do you know if that’s changed.

      also heard their not really interesting for the show.

      OMG so many rumor can’t keep up lol

  • Andrew

    Yeah I believe in the beginning it was old housewives vs new housewives (traditional). I also have a feeling Dina and Melissa won’t see eye to eye. Lastly, it’ll be the twins vs Amber. This is going to be a great season.

  • OH NO!

    • WestCoastFeed

      It might be that they are filming for the Manzo spin-off,, but the indications are that this is for RHONJ..

      • Hey WCF! Do you plan on watching the Manzo spinoff?

        • WestCoastFeed

          Yes. I am looking forward to it. They all have great senses on humor so I am hoping for a happy, fun show.

          • I wasn’t going to look at it, but if it’s gets good between the first and maybe third episode, I might watch the season out. We need some positive shows. Hope it’s not full of drama.

            Fun is what they wanted. I did see a comment recently from Caroline saying she did not want the producers meddling and trying to create phony drama.

          • It’s like every authentic show Bravo has, they have to use manufactured drama to bring it down until people are sick of it. Like the RHOC. We actually saw the women work, socialize, deal with family, and then, it all went straight to hell. Hope Caro put her foot down.

            It’s going to be a 60 commercial for black water

      • Summer

        That’s what Im thinking they might be filming for the Manzo spin off.

        Since Jax isn’t on speaking terms with Dina just wondering how or what part she’ll have on the NJHW

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hi.Summer. I’ve been wondering if Bravo may want to see all the old feuds settled for the finale. That could be one reason to have Jac back.

          • Summer

            Hi westcoast

            You make a gr8 point that didn’t even enter my mind.

            Great thinking:-):-)

            With Teresa’s legal problems providing most of the drama for the season, I’ve wondered if Bravo might want to have all the rest of the cast happy together We viewers have certainly complained loud and long about hating these past negative seasons.

            wow you’re kicking goals today LOL yes that also makes sense another great reason

    • Hey Bre!!! How you doing girl?

  • MorningYawn

    First of all, the countdown to sentencing for miss T is hi-lar-u-ous! Standing ‘O on that one!

    Second- I like Jax, always have. She is a pleaser, tho, and just wants to be liked. I don’t think she has bad intentions. I know that makes me a minority in many circles and I’m ok with that. Glad she is in a better spot no matter what she decides to do!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes! The countdown is wonderful!

      I think you will find that the majority of posters here also like jac. I think she is a sweet., honest woman who let herself be overcome by her emotions and behaved immaturely for a while. But, what mother could blame her, facing the fear of the unknown when Nicholas regressed so severely.

      • MorningYawn

        Yeahhhhh WCF! I posted b4 I read comments and was happy to see support for her. Smart cookies here! ;).

    • Lucille Mason

      wacko jacko is in worse spot than teresa , so doubt she will come back, with all the charges coming against her and chris

  • Andrew

    Hi everyone. While I’m not here to argue, Jacqueline did retweet on twitter about not coming back. Plus, Dina made it clear she wasn’t going to film with her family. Why would she film with Jacqueline? Who probably has more of an issue with each other than Caroline and Dina. Doubt Jacqueline is coming back. Although it would make more sense to keep her than bring Dina back because if Teresa goes to jail, Jacqueline would be the original. Also on all of the rumored sources, not once was Jacquelines name brought up. Not saying that’s the actual truth, but who knows. Jacqueline vs Dina would make a great storyline, but I don’t believe she’s coming back.

    @Summer

    Hello! I believe at first it was Teresa, Melissa, and Dina vs Teresa N, Nicole, and Amber. Supposedly, when they went to Atlantic City, Amber turned on the twins and faught with Melissa. I have a feeling Melissa and Dina won’t be buddy buddy. Teresa G’s storyline towards the end is focusing on her indictment. Amber and Nicole supposedly physically faught. And yes, the twins and their husbands.follow me on Twitter. They’re very nice with a huge fan base (Nicole was trending)

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Dr., can you give us a link to just a page with the countdown?
