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.
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.
Producers hope Jacqueline can boost ratings, given that "Dina’s return to the show has been really lackluster ... Her whole ‘Zen’ attitude is boring."
“So Jacqueline and her drama was something the producers really wanted. Jacqueline is back for the season. She will be in episodes at the end of the season."
"She always knows how to cause the most drama. Dina is just jealous that Jacqueline is getting the attention now and she’s totally unhappy about it.”
Without knowing exactly what's going on behind the scenes of the show or their personal lives, we'd venture to say that source pretty much nailed it.
Like Joe and Teresa Guidice, Laurita and her husband Chris have been facing a barrage of legal and financial woes, filing for bankruptcy and more.
Are you excited she's coming back?
