Jacqueline Laurita Claims To Be Over The Drama Of Being A “Housewife” And Reveals She’s Happy To Be “On The Outside” Of RHONJ!

Jacqueline Laurita claims to be over the drama of being a “Housewife.” The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals that her decision to leave the Bravo hit reality series was her own. “They had given me a start date,” she told Page Six.

“A couple days later they expressed concern that I wasn’t getting along with a few of the girls and they were like, ‘How’s this going to look authentic if you don’t want to be hanging out with each other?’”

“They wanted me to come on and start filming part-time to see how the storyline unfolded and then [said they] maybe would make me full-time,” she explained while promoting her health and beauty book “Get It!” at an event hosted by fitness app POPiN on Thursday night. “They weren’t guaranteeing full-time, so for me to film all season long under all that stress and drama to not have a guaranteed full-time [spot] was not worth it for me, so I said no.”

Cameras had followed Laurita’s on-again, off again friendship with fellow “Housewife” Teresa Giudice, whom Laurita subtly referred to her while signing copies of the book she co-wrote with Jene Luciani (author of “The Bra Book”).

A fan, coincidentally with the same first name as Giudice, prompted Laurita to quip, “I know a few Teresas.”

And as for why the workings behind Laurita’s latest venture — which was released in May — were never captured on camera? “You can only promote so many books on the show, you know?”

Although filming on the show’s eight season has wrapped for the remaining cast, the mother-of-three said she holds no hard feelings toward Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, both in their second season.

“I still talk to Siggy and Dolores all the time, that friendship will never change,” she said.

She added that she feels for them, after hearing of the drama that plays out on camera this upcoming season — set to air this fall — but is happy to finally “be on the outside.” She said will not be making any appearances in any capacity, despite being asked to show up to local events with the rest of the cast.

“Whenever there’s a full-cast event you know something’s going down,” she joked.
