Is Jacqueline Laurita returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey full-time for Season 7, just as fellow cast member Dina Manzo packs her bags?

Jacqueline Laurita on Bravo

That's the rumor going around and if true, it would certainly shake things up in N.J.

“Production has made it very clear that they want Jacqueline back,” a Bravo show insider says. “And they don’t want her back just for cameos, either.

"Production is planning to offer Jacqueline as a contract for a full-time housewife.”

Ratings are one big (perhaps the big) reason: Bravo wants people to watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online and on TV, end of story.

That's not happening like it used to, so they're considering their options.

Ever since news broke that Jacqueline Laurita will return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reaction from fans and current cast members has been decidedly mixed.

With Teresa Giudice headed to prison for 15 months, producers were left with few options with regard to women who are available and might be able to bring a tenth of the drama that Queen T brought to the table.

Laurita seemed a safe - if not perfect - choice, but now it seems that adding her to the cast may have left execs with another vacancy to fill.

Sources say Dina Manzo was furious to learn Laurita will be returning to the show, and now it looks like her anger may have prompted her to quit the series.

Would Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano carry on the tradition on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 14, the final installment of 2014?

By that, we mean exploding in epic fashion on a Real Housewives finale, as Teresa Giudice and her table-flipping ways so famously did in Season 1?

The stage was set at Dina Manzo's Project Ladybug charity fashion show, with THE RUMOR on everyone's mind and the twins making sure Victoria is not invited.

Teresa Aprea feels that "I deserve an apology" from her namesake.

She says of Giudice, "Teresa, you just s--t all over my family. I would never do that to you. That's why yours is getting destroyed now. Karma's a bitch."

Teresa Giudice is headed to prison for 15 months for fraud, which you surely know whether you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online or not.

Amber Marchese is a bit calmer, but after Jim Marchese caused such a fiasco in Boca Raton, she decides to go to the gala solo to avoid an encore.

Smart thinking for her, but where's the fun in that for us!?

Last night on Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 13, the fallout from the Florida trip continued to ripple through the cast.

The setting is Dina Manzo‘s charity event, Project Ladybug, and Teresa Giudice is back in the middle of things in the aftermath of the "disgusting rumor.”

Did Teresa Aprea‘s mom hook up with Rino Aprea?

That's what Victoria Gotti alleged, but it's Teresa who took heat for spreading this on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 13 Sunday.

Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita agree that no matter what issues you have with someone, bringing up anyone's mother in a feud crossed the line. Then again ...

Presumably so would boning someone's. Just sayin'.

Teresa Aprea and Nicole Nipolitano, her twin sister, are so pissed at the other Teresa in any case, blaming her for her role in making this story public.

“They’re hot-headed Italians,” Teresa Giudice says.

That they are, but if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, is that not a textbook case of the prison-bound pot calling the kettle black? Yes and no.

On last night's Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1, a former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member returned with her new Bravo spinoff series.

Is it worth watching, though, compared with the show she started on?

Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1 re-introduces us to Caroline Manzo, who not-so-famously split from the franchise for her own half-hour series.

Jacqueline Laurita, who is Caroline's sister-in-law, will join her along with her kids ... who are back and driving her up the wall. No surprise there!

Albie and Chris ditched their bachelor pad to move back into her place to save money, while Lauren's gearing up for her wedding to fiance Vito Scalia.

So much upper middle class drama in Franklin Lakes!

In On Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 2, she pushes them to broaden their world view a bit, which in her mind means a trip to trapeze camp.

On Sunday night's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11, a tropical storm tore through Florida and left few survivors in its wake.

In a manner of speaking, of course.

It's not only when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online. Every Real Housewives vacation anywhere is meant to stir up two things:

  1. Funny fish-out-of-water imagery
  2. Epic fights

This time, the scenery of Boca Raton, Florida, wasn't exotic enough for the humor of the O.C. ladies' trip to Bali, but Jim Marchese sure delivered on #2.

Relieved and cancer-free, Amber Marchese decided she and her hubby would come to Florida on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11.

They came, and with a vengeance.

Jacqueline Laurita returned to Bravo on Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 10, and she is back with a vengeance.

Her comeback dovetailed with the drama surrounding Teresa Giudice, whom Jacque says she reached out to twice recently, but received little response.

"You are weighing heavily on my mind," said Laurita, reading to former housewife Kathy Wakile one of the lengthy text messages she had sent Giudice.

"You were like a sister to me," she went on. "I wish I could be there to hug you."

Teresa's reply: "Thank you for thinking of me and my family. Kisses."

"When you pour your heart out and all you get is, 'Thank you. Kisses,' that's closing the book for me," said Wakile on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 10.

Still Jacque remained somewhat sympathetic and supportive.

Jacqueline Laurita is coming back to join The Real Housewives of New Jersey to stir the pot this season, and some people are not happy about it.

One person in particular.

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

In particular, Dina Manzo is so pissed about Laurita returning to the show that she said she wouldn’t have decided to join the cast again if she had known.

“Dina is furious that Jacqueline is back. She never would have come back if she knew Jacqueline was still on the show,” a source close to the situation said.

“She is mad that she’s been put in this position.”

Manzo came back for Season 6 of the struggling show despite saying, “I will never do a reality show with family ever again. It’s just not a healthy environment.”

Laurita is her sister-in-law. It's complicated.

Former reality star Jacqueline Laurita is returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey for a few episodes later this season, as reported last week.

Bravo hopes this will provide a return to past ratings gold.

  • Dina Manzo on RHONJ

"Jacqueline wasn't happy to not be returning to the show [as a cast member] this year. She was sad about it," an insider said of the longtime star.

The ratings for the sixth season so far have been struggling badly, and fan-favorite Laurita's return might provide a necessary spark to boost viewership.

"Now that Jacqueline is coming back for a few episodes, it's Bravo's way of trying to stir up drama. And it probably will," the source close to the show said.

Laurita, 44, had been on the show five seasons but was let go after sister-in-law Dino Manzo said to fire Jacqueline and Carolina Manzo, otherwise she'd walk.

The network obliged, but may be having second thoughts now.

A familiar face is on her way back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Multiple outlets (TMZ, Us Weekly) confirm that producers have devised a way to spice of what they believe to be a boring season. Isn't that right, Jacqueline Laurita?

The reality star was let go from Bravo last year, but only because she was preoccupied with family issues and had "lost her edge," insiders tell TMZ.

Hoping she's now found it again, The Real Housewives of New Jersey will actually shoot additional footage with Laurita in it in order to add excitement to Season 6.

"They were planning on taping some new scenes anyway" for the September sentence of Teresa Giudice and her husband on fraud charges, according to Us Weekly.
