Hot Tea Alert: Jacqueline Laurita Returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey

As we previously reported, ratings for the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” have been in the toilet. Now it seems Bravo is looking to shake things up and bring back former Housewife, Jacqueline Laurita.

Now rumors are floating around the blogosphere that producers are bringing back Jacqueline Laurita. All About The Tea exclusively reported back in April that camera crews were spotted filming at Jacqueline’s New Jersey mansion.

Zen Dina Manzo can’t be taking the news too well. Dina has made it clear she does not want to do the show with family  because it brings unnecessary drama and causes problems. And the ONLY reason she decided to return is because Jacqueline and her sister Caroline would not be on the show.

The following photo of Jacqueline having dinner with season six stars, Nicole, Bobby and the Wakile’s seems to lend credence to the rumors:

Lets see how Ms. Zen will respond to her sister-law returning. Will she leave the Bravo paycheck for the unemployment line? Sound off in the comments.

    I’d love to see her back, even if only in a cameo spot. Kathy has said that she and Rich became friends with the Lauritas over the past few seasons. And I have seen that Rich and Bobby are very friendly on twitter and have been for months now.

  • italiano bambino

    You know the zen shit by readying the news

    • WestCoastFeed

      Aw, the poor thing. She is probably curled up on the floor of her closet, comforting herself with shoes.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jac is getting bombarded on twitter by fans who are hoping that it is true that she will be back.

    • twifan2

      Is she ‘saying” anything, WCF?
      MAYBE she can make a ‘grande entrance’ like Zender did! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        She hasn’t tweeted in 7 hours.

        • twifan2

          Maybe busy with Nicolas?
          Or just letting the PR roll. :/

          • WestCoastFeed

            And probably giggling over it all.

          • twifan2

            I would be too!
            Just thinking how Zender, Tre are livid… 😀
            Now I understand all the @Staubieland tweets from earlier today! 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            Hah!! This must be killing the Staubies.

          • twifan2

            It is! 😀
            They tweeting WHY Bravo bringing Jacs back AND NOT Danielle!
            AND Danielle is retweeting their tweets! 😀 LOL

  • twifan2

    I really do hope she’s back! 🙂
    Zender & Tre must be fuming by now! 😀

  • kirklandmomma

    Jac-a-mole in full effect y’all.

  • WestCoastFeed

    I hope this is true so that Jac can say, “See, I told you it was my choice not to come back full time.”

    Baseball time, see you all tomorrow.

    • twifan2

      Question WCF.
      Why is RHWNJ-Bravo ‘sponsoring’ Danielle’s birthday party? :/

      • MorningYawn

        Eeeew! No Danielle, Bravo! Too much crazy!

        • twifan2

          BUT! BUT! BUT! I want to see Tre & Zender squirm, MorningYawn! 😉

          • MorningYawn

            Jac will make them squirm! Square tits is certifiable… No credibility! Though I do want to hear the dirt she is hoarding… Without having to see or deal with her… Asking too much??

          • twifan2

            Jacs & her can have telephone convos on the show then. 🙂

          • MorningYawn

            Yes,yes,yes… If not on the show, Jac can tape them on her cell and play them at the reunion! Worked before….ummmmmm, wellllll! Lol!

          • twifan2

            Crazy Good! 🙂
            LOL

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Yeah! She has that “take no prisoners” kind of cowgirl walking down the boardwalk action. And you can barely hear the spurs clinking along!

          • MorningYawn

            You are rolling!

          • twifan2

            OMG!an you just imagine what the show reunion would be like with Jacs, Danielle, Tre & Zender there! 😀

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Meat Ballz would be flying around like helium balloons doin’ an air dance.

          • twifan2

            Do you think Tre would have Zender’s back & vice-versa? :/

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            By the time that the Zina oh Zina party of one has completely defected from the Felon’s Tre-house, Zina will be deflated like a National Geographic native woman’s upper deck flap dance. And, Tre will either be wearing the fat-chance anklet or she’ll be boiling her pasta in the terlit bowl.

          • twifan2

            I SO hope so, TPaA! 🙂

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Let’s just keep our slender little fingers crossed along with our “just say no to married men” knees.

          • twifan2

            LOL OK!

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Bravo has got to try anything they can to get some of their escapee former viewers back.
        So they are likely throwing any sort of pasta bowl at the wall, to see if something sticks!

        • twifan2

          Just seems like a small gesture tho.
          A small party in NYC on a Saturday nite. :/

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            It’s worth a try…Bravo is sinking like a proverbial wise guy with concrete galoshes!

          • twifan2

            Couldn’t happen to a nicer company! 😉

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Ihz Affirmz ya Pernt!

          • Danielle said she’s ready to come back.

          • RonnieIsBack

            oooh I hope so…all the chit they threw at her about her past….karma Karma…

      • Oh Snap! They’re probably trying to make nice and get Danielle back too.

      • RonnieIsBack

        AARP is sponsing lol

  • They should have never have her and Caroline leave. Dina is a boring flop.

    • twifan2

      I actually do believe Caroline was THRU with Tre & her crap.
      She was tired of it.

      • MorningYawn

        Amen. If she could have gotten out of her contract earlier I think she would have. Caroline ain’t got time for that!

        • twifan2

          Look the ‘good bye’ she gave old Tre at the last reunion! 🙂

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Oh MUH MUH My Sharona, YESSSSS!

      • You know she was and she seemed tired of Melissa too.

        • Marsbars09

          Agreed. Mel and Tre’s family drama wore Caro thin.

      • Marsbars09

        I agree. I think Caro was really through with the show after the third season.

    • Marsbars09

      Caro and Jac were boring. It’s too bad they couldn’t find someone as “interesting” as Tre.

  • MorningYawn

    Nice scoop AATT! I read this on another site today and thought “we knew this!” Glad to see Jac back. I may watch those episodes….

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I personally really like Jacqueline’s feistiness. I did especially when she jumped Zina’s case at the table flip dinner.
    She has this sort of “wait to give herself permission” thing and then she goes “at their throat and rips it out with a garden trowel” finesse shtick! The girl’s got some major chutzpah gonads!

    • MorningYawn

      Ahhhhaaaa! Rip it out with a garden trowel! NICE Trees Pics

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Wah, Thank ya MY! You’re too kind.

    • Yes, she does. I really love that about her. She rips out their throats and makes no apologies about it.

  • italiano bambino

    You know bravo is really opening that wallet anything for that ratings!

    • twifan2

      You still want Kim G back, Bam?

      • italiano bambino

        Yrs the real deal twi lol

    • I don’t think they have a choice. The women they have now are not working. It’s a total snoozefest. Dina is not TV material and the new girls are blah.

      • italiano bambino

        Dina and teresa head exploded along with Melissa. Idk for me jac and her fam and the manzo dynamic where good for the show either people accepted it or not.

        • Same here. I really liked Jaq’s family and the Manzo’s. I like Caroline a lot.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Co-Signed…Caroline wasn’t afraid to speak her mine.

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I’m off to watch some “Prime Suspect” UK with the formidable Ms. Mirren as the Superintendent Detective Inspector on Ntflx.
    Blast y’all later Girlz and Guyz!

  • Jennymckitty

    Are they taping stuff to be added to this season?

    • twifan2

      They might be, Jenny.
      Bravo is desperate to get the ratings back up!

      • Jennymckitty

        I hope they are. Dina was a mistake….they should have known that before they ever signed her. She has bombed on several shows since she left and Caroline isn’t around to prop her up this time around. Amber and her criminal husband should have never been cast. The only time I have found Tre remotely likeable was when she and Jaq were goofing off. They need to do something to spice up this season.

        • I hope so too. Jaq has a mouth on her. She’s knows all of Dina’s secrets and not afraid to spill the tea.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Which is why I have the popcorn ready…

  • Marsbars09

    I don’t think Jac should come back because she cannot handle the stress of being on the show. I know a lot of people like her, but she really needs to concentrate on her emotional health and her family, especially Nicholas.

    • She needs the money for Nicholas treatments.

      • Marsbars09

        I understand that, but you know how hard Jac struggled to maintain her sanity while on that show. Chris is the man of the house so he needs to figure out a way to provide for the family.

        • I think on the last season she was on, she was under a lot of stress dealing with Nicholas but now that he’s diagnosed she can better manage the stress.

          • RonnieIsBack

            And Xanax does wonders…

          • nan/4

            I hope that she is on it Ronnie. There are people who need the help of things like Xanax to get through the day. I think that some of the most real scenes in this mess of a show was when you saw her trying to work with little Nick. Her sadness and frustration were palpable. At least she brought some ‘reality’ to this so-called ‘reality show!’ I sincerely hope that she got the help that she needed, and I am looking forward to seeing her again.

            Have a nice weekend Ronnie! 🙂

        • Bonita Gee

          RIGHT ………. THANK YOU… Jacqueline was WAY TOO OCCUPIED with what was going on in Teresa’s life to concentrate on her own DIRE situation with her kids. . ….

          • Dave

            You haven’t watched from beginning obviously. They have been horrible to everyone. Not only all the bank fraud but the fact that Joe posed as his brother to get a fake license when his was taken away for DWI. He also forged his business partners name on documents. These are things they were convicted of. They just haven’t been sentenced yet. If you watched every show from beginning to end and you can still defend them. I’m betting you didn’t do that.

          • Bonita Gee

            Yeah Okay but I’m NOT UNDERSTANDING what you’re saying? Who are you defending?? Her, Joe, or Teresa??
            What I was saying Jacqueline is OBSESSED WITH them. “Them” Meaning OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS. Meaning: Another married couples business. When she’s a grown woman with her own problem.
            WTF? Does Joe and Theresa own her money? Why is she obsessed with their fraud case to the point where she’s INSULTED that Teresa didn’t tell her?

      • SDC

        I think her stress was because Nicholas wasn’t diagnosed at the time and the fact that they didn’t know what it was, was stressing her and I get that she didn’t know how to handle the stress, I wouldn’t know how to either. However, she has vociferously said that she’s in a better place and handles the stress much better. I wouldn’t want her filming the show with Dina, I don’t trust that woman at all.

        • Hi SDC! I agree. Which one don’t you trust?

          • SDC

            Dina. Don’t like her and I don’t trust her

          • Yup!!!!! GMTA!

            Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend, SDC! 🙂

          • SDC

            Thanks! You too! BTW, what does GMTA mean? lol >.<

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            GMTA = Great Minds Think Alike

          • SDC

            Thanks!

          • Why you hiding over here???? LOL! 🙂

            Hi lady.

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            Not hiding. LOL! Just popped on for a sec. Wowser & I thought I was up early.

          • Never went to bed. Easier for me to work when everyone is in bed. No interruptions.

            Happy Saturday! 🙂

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            Ahh, know the feeling well. No distractions, no interruptions. Smart for getting work done but makes for a very long day! lol
            Happy Saturday Honey. Hope you can at least take a nap later. Have a good one & enjoy your day.

          • Thanks honey. I appreciate this. And I know you deal with not being able to go to sleep. I hope you can get some rest today also.

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            Just took a 3 hour nap. It was awesome sauce! LOL! Hope you got some rest too!

          • Sorry for the tardy response. I see T-Lilly responded below.

  • Trippinhhard

    I’m back, yea. I know u couldn’t careless!,,,,,
    Anywho I happy Jackie will be back, she needs all the money she can get, for her son condition and his future. Chris doesn’t have that cloths making business, any longer
    See u y’all this weekend.

    • Hey Sweetie. Welcome back!!!!! 🙂

  • TartLemon

    Well, now, let’s see…. hmmmmm….. Dina’s track record with reality shows has been abysmal. Why on Earth would Bravo allow her to dictate the production for this series?

    I don’t get how their programming decisions are left in the hands of Dina.

    • Jennymckitty

      She is Zen and probably had her psychic tell them that ratings would be through the roof.

      • nan/4

        hehe. Hi Jenny! 😉

  • cait

    Jaq will struggle without her back-up team ! Sadly she would go into a tearful meltdown after appalling nasties from the Tree (missed reunion comes to mind) Then she would holler’ from the rooftops ! Never really got involved in controversy and pretended to sleep ! Not a good omen !

  • Susie Whats Her Name

    They have finished filming the season so they are not bringing back Jac (yet). I don’t think it’s for ratings.

    • Hi Susie. They constantly film new scenes and add them whenever they want. This is common for reality shows. Love and Hip Hop Atlanta does this all the time.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Hey Doc..they sure do..remember when Stebbie mentioned some ish that had happened 2 weeks prior..but they were supposed to be filming months previously? Shady shady reality tv…but it is entertaining…

        • Exactly my point. Steebie mentioned the Jay Z / Solange elevator incident 2 weeks after it happened.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Gotta love it..who needs Gonzo Zen when you can have Kray Kray with Jacqs? I love it bc she isn’t afraid of shutting Zen down with her lies..and now that Gonzo and Chris Sr. are on the outs…let the games and drinking begin…

  • WestCoastFeed

    US and OK Magazines have the story today, as does ROL. US Mag has the most info and says the filming was for a few scenes. I loved that recent twitter exchange when Ashley threatened Dina with revealing info that Dina would rather have kept private.

  • nan/4

    The HW’s franchise is like a sinking ship, and Bravo Is desperately trying to plug up the holes! It like they have made up a new adage…”out with the old, and in with the old!” I for one am very happy to see Jacqueline returning to the show. Now if they could get rid of the new girls and their men-folk, Tre, Joe, Melissa and Joe Gorga, and bring back Kathy and her sister, I MIGHT be able to bring myself to watch the show. Oh, and Dina should be let go as well. ARE YOU LISTENING BRAVO?? I’m tawkin’ to YOU! LOL!!!!

    Have a good one! 😉

  • nan/4

    Dina is was on her yoga mat, and meditating. She had rung her Zen bells, communed with nature, and thrown a rock into a river. Ahhhhhh…..After that she not-so-calmly stood up and threw her 400 pair of shoes out of the window, and is presently shouting obscenities at her ugly cats. I’m psychic, I KNOW THIS!!!! hahahaha!

    • WestCoastFeed

      I believe every word, nan. Dina is as Zen as the Olive Garden.

      • nan/4

        LOL!!! You’re so funny, WCF!!!!! hahaha….

        I hope all is well. 😉

  • Bonita Gee

    What I was saying Jacqueline is OBSESSED WITH them. “Them” Meaning OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS. Meaning: Another married couples business. When she’s a grown woman with her own problem.
    WTF? Does Joe and Theresa own her money? Why is she obsessed with their fraud case to the point where she’s INSULTED that Teresa didn’t tell her?

    • WestCoastFeed

      What are you talking about? When has Jac shown herself to be obsessed over the Giudice fraud case? They were indicted just a year ago. Jac hasn’t been tweeting about it.

      • Bonita Gee

        Oh okay NEVER MIND.
        Sorry we’re HAVEN’T been talking about the same show. Damn …… Sorry about that…
        We talking about two different shows. Damn! My Bad… Heee heee!!
        that was that OTHER SHOW that Jacqueline was on…. :-p

      • nan/4

        She hasn’t WCF.

      • Agreed.

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL is now saying that Teresa is refusing to film any extra scenes. What is she afraid of? Probably of tarnishing her image any more.

    • nan/4

      ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lies. A famewhore like Tre would film for free. That story is bogus.

      • WestCoastFeed

        This is, however, another blog that says Bravo is filming extra scenes. “To save the season from being a total bomb.” And certainly the ratings have been dismal. I wonder what they are trying to put together to save the show. The Jac scene with Kathy is probably a warm hearted and kind episode.

        • Yeah!!!!! I really hope so. And I believe for a fact they are filming pick-up scene with Tre’s willing participation.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m curious to find out what they think will rescue the show. They will need to fit these new scenes in soon to try to recover their viewers.

          • If they bring Jac back, the ratings will go through the roof. Dina is boring and very fake. Viewers recognize and relate to REAL. Jac is real.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And a scene with her talking about Nick and his recovery would pull viewers in. He is such a darling kid that even a very brief scene with him would be ratings gold.

          • Absolutely!!! I miss seeing his cute little face on my TV. Jac’s family is way more interesting than anything I’ve seen this season thus far.

  • Bonita Gee

    ……….. and I’m not talking about no DAMN RECENT TWEETS!! I’m talking about when Jacqueline was ON THE SHOW so many seasons ago!! …………. DAMN!
    When she was taping scenes with Teresa …….. when all the fraud SHIT FIRST STARTED……. Wow… Wow……. !! I don’t know what the hell she thinks of Teresa NOW… I just know what I saw BEFORE Jacqueline left the show…….. DAMN!!

    • Jacqueline was not in Teresa’s business. Teresa’s business was on the cover of every magazine courtesy of Tre selling stories to the press. It’s only natural for a friend (Jacqueline) to ask, are the stories true. I would want my friends asking. I call Jac’s actions “concerned” not getting into Tre’s business.

      • Bonita Gee

        What ever………… OBSESSED and ”concerned” two different things… But like I commented before……….. SORRY , MY BAD…………. we watching TWO DIFFERENT SHOWS! Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!
        I’m talking about that OTHER SHOW………………. sheese! NEVER MIND.

        • Uh huh….whatever! OY! 🙂

          • Bonita Gee

            ……………………………… :-p…….. Heeee heee!

          • What are your plans for the weekend? How’s the weather in the D?

          • Bonita Gee

            Nothing much………… watch some of my shows. . It’s sunny and warm with cool nights here in the D. …………… I’ll be watching David Tuteera’s Celebration show. The WE channel I think You know – his NEW Wedding planner show. He plans party’s now too. He does everything.

          • Me too. I loved the 1st episode last week. So far it looks like a good show. Make sure you come back to chat about crazy JWoW on the recap thread tomorrow. Enjoy your evening, lady.

          • Bonita Gee

            You to…….. Thanks

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yeah especially since he dumped his boo…

          • Bonita Gee

            Wait…….. WHAT?? “Dumped his boo” When did this happen?? Didn’t hear abou that… He broke up with his boy friend?

          • Bonita Gee

            No more emails pls

          • Bonita Gee

            I didn’t type that DR Seuss…. WFT ?? !

          • Bonita Gee

            I didn’t type that…. WFT ?? The “no more Emails” thing!!
