#RHONJ Jacqueline Laurita’s Hubby Chris Found Guilty In Bankruptcy Case!

Posted on Aug 29 2017 - 3:10pm by BeachSpin

Chis Laurita has been found guilty of fraud in the civil bankruptcy case that has been underway for years.

The husband of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Jacqueline Laurita, is facing a $1.8 million bill.

The suit is not a criminal case, and Chris is not facing criminal charges.

Court documents reveal on August 28th, a United States Bankruptcy Court judge found Chris and his company, Iconix, “jointly and severally liable for fraud” and “negligent misrepresentation.”

Chris has been ordered to pay $1.8 million to Signature Apparel Group, after being found guilty of  “breaching of fiduciary duties” and “tortious interference.” 

Chris’ clothing company, Signature Apparel, filed for bankruptcy in 2009. A year later, the Laurita couple’s legal woes mounted when a court appointed official discovered that the couple was using company accounts to pay for luxuries, including private jets. Chris’ brother Joseph and sister-in-law, Adeline, settled their part of the suit in 2014, but Chris and his brother, Anthony, continued to pursue the case in court. The case stalled after the Lauritas were accused of owing former bankruptcy attorneys over $290k in legal fees. 

Chris and Jacqueline put their family home back on the market, earlier this month. 

Jacqueline declined to return to RHONJ, after Bravo did not offer her a full-time spot for Season 8.

    Good thing you put is not a criminal case to clarify but you know the trehuggers wish it was lol.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      I guess I am a Trehugger, but Bambi, you of all people, can understand my appreciation for some wood every now and then:-)

    • Mar

      It does not have to be.. but it could turn criminal for Chris. Only difference between Jac and Tre is that Tre was stupid enough to get caught.

  • the underground train

    While I will not miss Jacqueline on the show she should have accepted the part time offer for the money from what it sounds like.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi underground! Long time no hear from! I’m glad Jac didn’t return to RHNJ. Her sanity can no longer handle the stress.

      • chacha1

        Jaq also needs to stop drinking

        • RHONJ Fan

          Jacqueline only drinks leisurely, she doesn’t have a problem.

          • chacha1

            thanks for clearing that up,

          • Ronnie

            Lol

  • Just My Opinion

    What comes around goes around!!! I’m better that thou Jackie is now in the Gorga–Giudice league!!

    • the underground train

      She surpasses them when you include the charity fraud charges

      • Just My Opinion

        oops..didn’t know about that one

        • Pam

          YOU sure are DUMB!

      • RHONJ Fan

        That’s incorrect.

      • chacha1

        What? Charity Fraud?

        • RHONJ Fan

          “the underground train” is misinformed about the Susan G. Komen charity that was listed in the Laurita’s bankruptcy filing. Chris’ company did not defraud the charity, they simply could not pay them a promised amount once they filed bankruptcy.

          • chacha1

            I wonder what happened with Dina Manzo and her Ladybug Charity, I never trusted her.. who could trust someone who looked like her hairless smelly scary cats

          • Chickpea16

            Good question.

          • the underground train

            Not paying what was promised sounds like fraudulent to me

          • toolate2care2000

            Especially when you are using that money on yourself at the same time .

          • RHONJ Fan

            That’s incorrect. Shayvoe posted actual FACTS and the Laurita’s did not defraud Susan G Komen or any charity.

          • Nancysue

            Since I’ve personally seen the results of what Susan G Komen does for breast cancer survivors, because I am one and so is my sister and we attend the “Race for a Cure”- and I have a beautiful pink Tshirt that says survivor on it, I feel terrible that thousands of women like me, some running out of time, did not receive their shirts, scarfs, and hats because The Laurita’s did defraud the company by not completing the order when they said they could- I can’t stand them now-

        • Maria

          Cancer.

    • chacha1

      the Guidice criminals scammed innocent victims of Hurricane Sandy just one of MANY crimes they committed so I will never compare the Guidice/Gorga’s to Jaq and Chris Manzo

      • Mar

        Jac was accuse of taking money from charities. BOTH of them(tre and Jac) stole money.

        • shayvoe

          What charities was she accused of taking money from. I have never heard that before.

          • the underground train

            Susan G Komen. I thought there was an article on here about it.

          • Marsbars09

            I think there was.

          • shayvoe

            Oh right. But, they didn’t steal any money from Komen. They had an agreement with Komen, like 1000’s of companies do who use their logo. They were going to sell tee shirts with Komen’s logo, and Komen requires a percentage of all sales when a company uses their logo. They filed bankruptcy before any shirts were made, so no money was ever made on the shirts. They didn’t actually steal anything. Komen is suing them for breach of contract for the money they would have made on the shirts, had they made and sold them.

          • RHONJ Fan

            Thank you so much for posting FACTS. Many of the Jacqueline’s haters would rather accept lies and gossip than embrace the truth when it doesn’t feed their hate.

          • shayvoe

            YW….I think what Chris and his brothers did was horrible. They bled the company dry to live a life style they couldn’t afford. and then filed bankruptcy sticking it to their investors. I am just posting the facts, but I’m glad the investors will get a portion of their investment back.

          • the underground train

            Yes you are correct. However given how Chris Laurita handles business it is hard to believe if he ever had any intention on making the donation. It looks like he entered into this contract just so he could have another write off in his bankruptcy filing. How did he ever plan on selling shirts when his company was already going belly up?

          • RHONJ Fan

            “It looks like he entered into this contract just so he could have another write off in his bankruptcy filing.” …That statement makes no sense. People don’t want MORE filings on a bankruptcy petition. The LESS they have to file, the better.

          • Chickpea16

            I guess they listed Komen in their bankruptcy so Komen couldn’t sue them in the future JMHO.

          • shayvoe

            That’s a good point. But, it wasn’t a donation, it was a percentage off of every shirt they would sell, required by Koman for using their logo. No shirts sold, no money owed. But, you are right about entering into the deal with Koman, and then filing bankruptcy was shady, and exactly why Koman is suing them too.

          • toolate2care2000

            I believe the money they owed Komen was listed in their bankruptcy paperwork???

          • shayvoe

            It was and Komen is suing them, just like the investors did.

          • toolate2care2000

            So if it is listed: they did owe Komen money, by their own admission.

            They entered into a guaranteed contract with a charity. They couldn’t fulfill this contract, but at the same time was taking their company’s money for their own use . Will Komen receive money from this settlement?

          • shayvoe

            Hard to say….this has been going on for years. It is a small sum, like $18,000 or so. Probably doubtful.

          • toolate2care2000

            So I guess they scammed a charity….

          • shayvoe

            I guess it depnds on how you look at it. They certainly scammed and stiffed their investors.

          • Mar

            Yup shayvoe..So not really stealing but scamming…. The way I understood was that they were accused of taking money that was really Susan Komen’s money. Like they did not give the percentage to them. But it really was that they entered into a contract and did not fulfill their end of it.

          • shayvoe

            Correct!

          • Mar

            Susan Komen

          • Chickpea16

            Yes, $18K.

          • RHONJ Fan

            False. Stop advertising your ignorance, troll.

      • toolate2care2000

        The Guidices committed crimes and were convicted. They were greedy, no question.

        But the Sandy story was one complaint that was very shady. The paperwork shown for the work wasn’t even in the name of the woman complaining and the story quickly disappeared. No further investigation, no lawsuit, nothing . I believe this was someone looking for her 15 minutes of fame.

        • Chickpea16

          When Juicy was being sentenced the judge complimented him on his efforts to help Sandy victims. So who knows?

    • Pam

      WORN OUT CLICHE ALERT

  • Ravello

    Chris was a likeable guy on the show but now we know he is shady and no better than Joe, Teresa and Abby lee. Is he facing jail time?

    • Marsbars09

      I was wondering the same thing.

    • Mar

      No he is not. Not right now.

      • Ravello

        I’m confused on why some who committed bankruptcy fraud go to jail and others do not.

        Calling Stacy for some legal information,

        • shayvoe

          Because it was an incorporated business…his own business. The fraud was to his investors, not to the federal government. That’s why they were suing him in civil court. They wanted their money. It was a corporate bankruptcy not a personal one.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Ugh, how are these criminals not going to jail? Jack Daniels had some nerve calling out Tre and Joe …talk about the pot calling the kettle black. What is that old expression? Oh yes, karma is a bitch. I’ll bet Jac is begging Tre for forgiveness as we speak and begging to get back on her the show.

  • Marsbars09

    About time Chris was found guilty. But wasn’t Jac liable too? And if Chris was found guilty of fraud, which is a crime, why isn’t he going to jail?

    • shayvoe

      It was a civil case not a criminal case, I think.

    • RHONJ Fan

      Chris did not commit a criminal offense. This is a civil case, not criminal.

      • Gingertee

        Well that makes it okay……NOT, wrong is wrong

        • carrot

          Don’t take it out on RHONJ, what she/he said is correct, this was always civil and not criminal. This was never about jail time.

          • Gingertee

            My comment is not meant to be a personal attack to RHONJ. Criminal or civil, what Chris, Jacqueline and the rest did was wrong and illegal. Jacqueline had no problem verbally clobbering Teresa and now here there are is trouble. It may be a civil issue but it’s wrong just the same.

          • Marsbars09

            Well said Ginger.

          • Gingertee

            Thanks Mars 🙂

          • Mar

            Very true. What they all did was wrong. They both stole money. Jac should not get a free pass because it’s not criminal,which it can turn criminal easily.

      • Mar

        Does that make it ok? It can turn criminal at some point.

    • Gingertee

      Jackie was named too and yes, she has been really quiet

    • Authentic

      Right Mars….and why isn’t this a criminal case? The Lauritas need to serve jail time too.

  • Bryan

    Thugs all of them send them to prison and sell their children!

    • Gingertee

      Bryan my love how are you??? Remember when Twisted Lip Sister was calling Tre a felon. Chris was found guilty and Jackie is named in this too. What does that make them?

      • Authentic

        All of he Manzos are crooks too!

        The whole cast very shady. Joe Gorga big developer and opens restaurant? Why? Seems like a front for something illegal.

      • Bryan

        I am fine thanks how are you? and it makes them worse

        • Gingertee

          Great, I know. They started a business made money, used the proceeds for their personal life and didn’t pay the bills from the business, they let it go belly up. Chris is pretty quiet but he backs up his wife and she had a lot to say about the Guidices…..a lot

          • Bryan

            Good to hear it, yeah those two had plenty to say and here they were just as dirty

  • RHONJ Fan

    Jacqueline and Chris will rise above this minor setback and triumph again. They are good people and a lovely family.

    • chacha1

      I always liked them and also Kathy and Rosie ….. The Guidice/Gorga’s are criminal bottom feeders and I cannot stand them

      • Maria

        It seems , the Lauritas and manzos, are worse than criminal bottom feeders.

        • Marsbars09

          I think they are shadier and more sinister than the Giudices.

          • shayvoe

            Hi Mars…no one is shadier that the duce felons.

          • Marsbars09

            Hi Shay! I don’t know about that anymore. The Lauritas and Manzos are very low key with their dirty deeds. Between the tax liens, lawsuits and alleged mafia connections, they’ve proven to be just as crooked, if not more, than the Giudices.

          • Mar

            I think that was why they were so upset with Tre. She was flashing money and being careless. Tre was getting attention for her fraud then it may lead to them at some point too. I think Danielle knows this.

          • Marsbars09

            Now I understand why Caro and Jac were so p*ssed with Tre all those years ago when they had that hours long smackdown on Jac’s deck. It had nothing to do with Tre lying to people about selling stories to the tabloids.

      • Mar

        The Lauritas stole money just like Tre. It is similar. She is no different then Tre.

        • chacha1

          Oh okay !!!

          There is a big difference. Do your research before commenting.

  • Heidi Michelle

    “Jacqueline declined to not return to RHONJ” Does that statement sound like a double negative and seem super confusing to anyone else? LOL Shouldn’t is say … Jacqueline declined to return to RHONJ?

    • Authentic

      Agree with you. On the flip side I hate to miss her current situation on RHNJ since they’re filming now.
      I don’t understand why Chris’s actions are not considered criminal.

      • Marsbars09

        Neither do I.

      • Chickpea16

        I wonder if he doesn’t pay up then they can go after him criminally?

      • Nunna Yobiz

        The turmoil about this has got to be affecting their lil’ boy. Might be good to not have all the hoopla of filming on top of that right now. Haven’t watched since I chucked the TV, but from what I recall, Jacqueline isn’t the most steady sort when confronted with difficulties. She’s not going to handle this well, I think.

    • RHONJ Fan

      The story reads, “Jacqueline declined to return to RHONJ.” That’s correct grammar.

  • kathym2

    Does he even have a real job?

    • Authentic

      Didn’t he have a popcorn business? 😎😎😎

      I’ve never understood how they afforded that house. Private jets? Really??

          Right, and Chris was the primary investor.

      If not Chris and Jac need to get REAL jobs! They aren’t better than anybody else.

    • GirlPlz

  • Authentic

    I don’t understand why Chris and Jaqueline don’t have to serve federal prison time and their actions are not considered criminal??

    • shayvoe

      As far as I can tell, it was a civil case not a federal crime or any crime based on what I have read. They were being sued in civil court by their investors, and it was a private business protected by incorporation. What he was found guilty of was owing money to the investors, because he filed bankruptcy, after he bled the company dry, and they wanted their money, and he is ordered to pay them 1.8 mil. He should have settled like his brother did for 1 mil years ago, and would not owe an additional mil… $290,000 for attys fees and an additional 800K ordered by the judge. That’s what happens when you play dirty and don’t want to pay up.

      • Authentic

        Thx for the info. Yes, he should have settled like 1 brother 2 years ago but noooooo Chris keeps on with “another” brother. That’s where i get confused. Chris is still a crook. I don’t think this is the end, i think he’s studying Tre and Juicy’ case to avoid prison but he can’t stop the additional public records I foresee being released .

        • Mar

          Right ! I think the same . Not sure why, I feel that Chris is more shady then Joe.

      So funny! 😅
      Without a doubt! It’ s got Giudice written all over!!!

  • Trippinhhard

    Their company was making money hand over fist.. They were selling JayZ signature clothing, but all his company’s went belly up.. My nephew was a manager at one of JayZ clothing stores in the mall.. He was making 100K a year with bonuses. That lasted 5 years and them slowly but surely the breakup with his partner, caused a significant drop in his clothing line., He and Damon Dash had a falling out and the clothing line suffered.. They were selling for .30 cents on a dollar.. Chris’s company was one of their main suppliers and as such they got caught up in the money they were making and paying their personal bill through the company. It’s no different than our President, he’s filed BK several times, it was business not personal, so he never lost a dime, his investors lost money.. If the company was still flowing in the money, they would have never been caught.. This happens all the time with personal owned companies. It’s not criminal because he never lied to the Federal Government or Uncle Sam, he lied to his investors and used what little capital they had left on themselves, which was wrong.. I doubt if Jackie knew anything, but what Chris was telling her, she wasn’t listed as an employee or an officer of the company.l
    Chris should have taken the deal offered him a couple of years ago.. That black water was a waste if money he didn’t have.. Everyone on that show NJ was crooks..

    • Authentic

      Trip… Thx for explaining lying to investors vs Feds..but didn’t Chris file bankruptcy and continue illegal activities?

      • Trippinhhard

        It doesn’t really matter if he continue to spend money.. He didn’t lie to the Feds and the investors were left hanging their heads down and their pockets empty.. in a sense he raped his company and co mingle their money to continue to live the lifestyle they could no longer afford… West Coast Feed has all the tea on the NJ show…essentially they used their company to cover their lifestyle.knowing the company couldn’t afford to pay their vendors..It was horrible for all of their employees salaries they didn’t pay.. it was not like JayZ didn’t have the moneyto pay employees out of his pockets, but that’s not the way business way….

        • Authentic

          Thx!

        • the underground train

          But that is the main theme with this New Jersey cast. Keeping up with the Jones’s. As you said Chris was wrong for using the company’s money to fund a lifestyle he could no longer afford. But instead of admitting this he wasted more money and time trying to fight this lawsuit.

          • Trippinhhard

            Sometimes in the cases they don’t hold a person accountable for their actions.. It’s just like filing BK on a furniture store and have a sell out inventory sale..
            What the owner does is write off that loan to the IRS.. Then he takes the same inventory and opens up a new furniture company and a new name.. It’s called legal stealing, because whatever wasn’t sold is counted as a loss and he wrote it off.” So this new company is really the same company with a new name.
            It’s done all the time….

          • shayvoe

            I always thought Chris had some sense, but this whole mess just proves to me that he is a dumbo too. And, with all of this hanging over them, they renovate their house last year and talk about it on social media. And, Jacs couldn’t quit talking about all her plastic surgery and wanting more. Jacs was the one talking about it all, so maybe Chris couldn’t shut her up. I’m just glad that they have to pay the investors at least some of the money they lost. They had a very profitable business and they could have been living a nice life, but they got greedy. “Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.”

          • Trippinhhard

            They were greedy from the start the company was making millions, because JayZ was their main customer and they had other clothing they sold, but he was the majority of their accounts.. When that business went belly up in a couple of months.. That’s when the money problems started.. He employed his family and a few outsiders.. JayZ was their biggest and highest grossing company.. They were robbing Peter to pay Paul and still living a life of pure luxury off the investors money.. They should have saved more and lived within their means, instead of living like the Jones. Imo

          • Nunna Yobiz

            I’ve never heard that line before, but it sure is the truth. Gonna use it in the future, I’m sure. TY! Sums up a lot of these “reality folks”. Too many living on loans and indebtedness, trying to impress us “little folk”, when they are really in far worse financial straights than many of “us”. Wonder how they live with the humiliation. I couldn’t.

        • chacha1

          where is West Coast Feed ?

          • Trippinhhard

            I don’t know, she hasn’t posted in awhile, her daughter had cancer and that’s all I know. She usually comes out and post on the NJ blog, she has all the facts.. Danielle wasn’t lying when she was talking about the rest of them. Poor Danielle just wanted to be included and loved and going about it the wrong way.

        • Evil Queen

          Thank u for the info. Very enlightening. Never knew any of this?
          So, pu$$y is what broke up the company?

          • Trippinhhard

            I think that’s onlya fraction, Damon was starting to do two bits movies, straight to DVD..They couldn’t agree on anything any longer.. The both has egos larger than life.. they split the company down the middle.. Damon was very, very rich, but it’s like the stockmarket, he went broke overnight and he never learned to humble hisself. It was a big mess Roco fellow company.. Someone will correct the name for me.. It was the biggest and worse break up in music..

          • Evil Queen

            Thank u. Never heard of Damon Dash? Sure Jay Z is smiling like a Cheshire cat

          • Trippinhhard

            They started Rocafella music company..

    • Authentic

      OT: Damon Dash wife flirting with Jay-Z is the reason Solange beat the shyt out of Jay-Z in elevator. “Becky with good hair” is a trip knowing fallout with JayZ and Damon. Famewhore.

      • Trippinhhard

        JayZ was sleeping with her before he married Beyoncé.. They ALL sleep around in Hollyweird.. When Beyoncé had the first hit record with him, something with the effect of “you got me looking crazy out her” in a fur coat.. I saw that video and said they will be sleeping together soon, because watching their chemistry was all I needed to see. Heck JayZ slept with Foxy Brown when she was just 15 years old, nowadays he refuses to take her call.. Beyoncé is not the angel she’s portrayed to be..Becky with the good hair could have been anyone, they use eachother to make their records sell off the charts..Goody Goody for them, I stopped buying music in the 90’s.. why should I buy when you can get it free on line.. It’s nit that serious to me.. JMO
        I wouldn’t put a dime in their pockets, they rarely help the poor or donate money to the lesser person..

        • Evil Queen

          Jay-Z looks like a black lurch; not attractive at all!

            Those $$$$ in his pockets don’t hurt either. I would venture to say that is his biggest attraction…that and power. To a lot of women, a man in a powerful position is a huge turn on..

          • Authentic

            Hmmmm Money and power don’t hurt.

          • Nunna Yobiz

            Too bad he started his path to fame and fortune slinging crack to his own neighbors. To a few, that sort is never a turn on, for all the $ in the world. Should’ve been strung up a long time ago, for that. Not made into some kind o’ god. Blech.

          • Trippinhhard

            I don’t know but there’s plenty like him that I wouldn’t look at period.. Not my type and I don’t care about his $$$$$. You marry or date for money you will earn every penny of those $$$$$. He looks like a lazy f*ck to me, but that s just me..lol

          • High- times

            Hahahahaha! Hilarious!!!

            Just being honest

          Jay-Z and Beyonce were already sleeping together when she did the Crazy song, hence, purpose of song. They met when she was around 14, 15.
          True, Jay-Z slept with “Becky” before marriage which is why he got beat up in elevator.

          • Trippinhhard

            Who did he NOT sleep with, he has a 23 year old son that looks like him.. He’s tried to shut hismouth up, but the man looks like him to me..I thought their live story was a contract between the two if them…I dint care for either if them, but Beyoncé should never upen her mouth to speak in public at all. She speaks like a teenager and a very young,…l

          • Authentic

            Actually Beyonce speaks much better today…but not great. She’s probably had a speech coach and bought that 1st documentary Destiny’s Child did when very young where you can’t understand a damn thing she’s saying. Her speach was probably a combo of creole grandmother Biyonce and Houston Tx. . Tina sounds much better too, whilst I’ve never heard her deceased mother, Biyonce.

          • Trippinhhard

            I’m sorry but to me she still sounds horrible.. Her sister speaks beautifully, Beyoncé voice and accent is horrible .. yes I do know that creole and French have some deep accents.. I should know, the only ones that sounds as bad as here are the people from Pierre Part, LA their accent are so thick you have to listen very well to them.. in my line of business, we had so many nationalities we did business with.. It’s wasn’t hard for me to understand them, because I listen with my ears attuned to what they are saying.. Broken English is what a lot of foreigners speak, because English is the easiest language to learn..

      • Nunna Yobiz

        Criminals and crack mongers. Blech.

    • GirlPlz

      I’m not sure that their actions weren’t criminal. It’s just that it’s a different type of case. They were being sued. A criminal case is a different type of proceeding.

    • Cookie Lyons

      You’re really tripping telling yourself that. LMAO just like I said on top. Y’all rationalize this shit with “Well they didn’t lie to the gov they lied to investors”. WHO GIVES A FACK!??? THEY LIED AND LIVED OFF MONEY THAT WASN”T THEIRS

      • Trippinhhard

        You are talking to the wrong person yelling in all caps.. I said they are all crooks, please learn to read and comprehend what is written.. Lying to the Federal Government get you prison time.. Lying to your investors could get them time I don’t know. I said they were living off of money that wasn’t theirs.. Get your shit straight before you come for me.. okay Cookie I don’t give a damn because it’s not my money, I lost enough in the stock market to retire off of, but there’s no one to blame for when the stock market crash..

        • Nunna Yobiz

          Sorry for your losses, but yes, there are many blame. Follow the $. It’s in someones pockets.

          • Trippinhhard

            IKR but there’s nothing I can do..It was sad because some of my friends and ex co workers list millions of dollars.. Several of them killed themselves because they had all their retirement money invested and in one day it’s gone.. I cried for them and I’m not a cryer at all.. I just said it was in paper, I never had it in my hands, if God wants me to gave it back, he will give it to me.. That’s the way I looked at the situation, I still have life and breathe in me.. Money never been my God and never will.. So many people worship their money and thingees.. It could all be gone in a few minutes..I will take life over money any day, can’t cry over spilled milk, just clean the mess up and keep it moving..

    • Nunna Yobiz

      Lying is lying. Shady is shady. Misappropriation is misappropriation. Whether “legally” spliced as “not criminal” because of who he/they lied to and stole from, at the end of the day it’s still immoral and just plain wrong.

      • Trippinhhard

        I think people are not reading what I wrote, I said he lied and cheated.. He didn’t as of yet lie to the Federal government, that’s where the lying get more criminal.. I said everyone on that show was Crooks and Danielle was telling the truth..
        It’s a big difference according to the law, if he’s looking at jail time.. I don’t know he could go to jail for lying to his investors and raping his company of all monies.. I worked for the IRS in my 20’s and still know some of the rules, not all the new rules.l Like I said below he should have taken the deal his brother got.. They had an accounting firm going over those books.. Those guys in the accounting firms love to do their job and following the paper trail..They get a high off of that like people get a high from drinking or smoking weed..lol

    Someone is going to have to sell a lot of Black Water and popcorn to raise $1.8 million

    • Trippinhhard

      They won’t get that money from black water, they better go get some jobs and then they will garnishtheir checks..l

    • chacha1

      Is anyone really buying that shit black water?

    • Cookie Lyons

      yeah and still scam families with autistic kids telling them it cures it? Y’all got selective memories

  • colleen

    Thought the Lauritas were a little more classy then their castmates..until I read Private Jets!!!

    • Authentic

      The private jets stumped me too!

      • Cookie Lyons

        and the Bentley’s.

  • RHONJ Fan

    For the people slandering Jacqueline and Chris, claiming they defrauded Susan G Komen, please read the facts of the matter from a very astute poster, Shayvoe:

    “they didn’t steal any money from Komen. They had an agreement with Komen, like 1000’s of companies do who use their logo. They were going to sell tee shirts with Komen’s logo, and Komen requires a percentage of all sales when a company uses their logo. They filed bankruptcy before any shirts were made, so no money was ever made on the shirts. They didn’t actually steal anything. Komen is suing them for breach of contract for the money they would have made on the shirts, had they made and sold them.”

    • Cookie Lyons

      zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • GirlPlz

    This makes them Teresa-level
    Technically, they’re not guilty, because this wasn’t a criminal case. They were found liable

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Great point.

  • Cookie Lyons

    After stifling $50 mill. I better hear the same uproard that ya’ll had for Tre. But let me guess, y’all going to rationalize it with “they didn’t lie to the IRS”, “They didn’t lie of a mortgage” blah blah… Just like Jax rationalizes it saying that it is different because they stifled investors not creditors. LOL FUCKOUTTAHERE

  • Digitus impudicus

    All these RHONJ attention whores are turds; watching them trainwreck themselves just for a shot of cheap reality fame is good for laughs.

  • Dana

    How did I miss this fantastic news. What all the Tre haters got to say now? I’ve been saying Jack Daniels and the Manzos were shady criminals.
