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.

Dina Manzo may be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

But in order for Manzo to come back to the series she quit in 2010, the reality star made a demand of producers: Give the boot to Jacqueline Laurita.

  • Dina Manzo and Dog
  • Jacqueline Laurita on Blue Carpet

Jacqueline tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that she's aware of Dina's role in her ousting, dissing her sister-in-law to the tabloid and saying:

“I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show: She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey "Reunion Part 2" got underway with inventive insults and ended with opening old wounds. We recap it all in our THG +/- review.

What do the Housewives regret about this season?

Talk to the Hand
  • Rosie wishes she hadn't told Teresa to "take it up the *ss."
  • Teresa Giudice says she shouldn't have called Jacqueline Laurita evil.
  • Even Juicy Joe says he shouldn't have used names like Josephine, butchy boy, and horsey face.

Plus 20 because how often does anyone admit when they're wrong on this show?

Don't worry. It doesn't last long.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey  "Reunion Part 1" hit our TV screens and I had to wonder how many viewers felt a lot like Juicy Joe this season…

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

We recap all the backstabbing and infidelity in our THG +/- review.

Remember last season's reunion show when these ladies all but swore they'd never live in the same town, never mind share this sofa again. Well, some might have changed zip codes but they all showed up to talk to Andy Cohen this time around. Plus 15.

It's "Salon, Farewell" as The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrap up their season as everyone gathers at the salon. We recap the fighting and scary faces in our THG + or - review.

And what kind of finale would it be without Kim D's scowling face?

What's So Scary?

Apparently the woman who resembles the crypt keeper scares Joe and Teresa Giudice too? Plus 20.

But it's Penny and Teresa who go at it first. Since Penny is claiming Teresa texts her, Teresa wants to see the texts. Plus 12 because for once Teresa makes a perfectly reasonable request. 

Unfortunately Penny tells her, "I don't save my texteses." Or was that I don't save Texas? Minus 18. My Jersey Housewives translator must be on the fritz.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back for another episode and "Hair We Go Again" with the bad hair and worse singing.

We break down the need for a better hair weave and the purple pimp hat in our THG +/- review.

There were so many things that were just bad in this episode, like this outfit of Teresa's...

What Is She Wearing?

I'm not sure we'll have space to share them all. But let's try.

We'll start off with Melissa Gorga. No, her hair is good. It's her singing that needs work. Lots of work. Minus 15 because listening to her vocal exercises was just downright painful.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.
