EXCLUSIVE: Is Jacqueline Laurita Leaving Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Posted on August 20th, 2011 at 5:27 pm
Exclusive

In our latest article from Real Housewives expert and star blogger LynnNChicago, RumorFix breaks some shocking exclusive news about Jacqueline Laurita!

“It is confirmed that Jacqueline Laurita is now filming her LAST season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Jacqueline’s six-year contract is still in full force and effect and she is now filming limited scenes for Season Four but she does not want to return for Season Five.  She just wants to have her normal life back and she’s hoping that Bravo will allow her to break her contract for the remaining two seasons.

PICTURES: Teresa Giudice’s Not So “Fabulicious” Beach House In New Jersey

Bravo is filming the next season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey right now even before this current season is finished airing.  That is highly unusual for the network but they have to film while the storylines are continuing to brew between Sister’s in Law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga,  but this will be it for Jacqueline Laurita.

This is a first for any Housewives series as no Housewife has ever walked away voluntarily.  Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes will not be appearing on Season five either and will only be seen in one or two scenes of Season Four, provided Bravo doesn’t cut her out altogether.  While Ashley also is under a 6-year contract, Bravo has been allowing Ashley to slowly walk away from the show.”

      Didnt Dina walk away voluntarily?

    • Just_in-Time

      Brava Lynn! Brava Jacqueline! Absolute BEST thing you can do for your family. Mazel!

    • Designdiva

      I knew this was coming….. Hope they all get their act together as a FAMILY and work it out
      They are in my thoughts…..and prayers.

      I believe Dina walked away too, but she didn’t want to. I’m happy for Jaq. Someone has to pull the bell, call time out, and the F out before all hell breaks loose.

    • Jenny98876

      This is the best thing you could have done. Don’t wait until your marriage and family falls apart. Get out now. I knew you were the smartest of the bunch. Poor Teresa is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Needs the money now but despises what the show has become I’m sure.

    • http://twitter.com/KyHope24 Shannon

      Great job Lynn! We can always depend on you for latest Housewife news. Keep up the good work.

    • WCW

      Glad Jacq left. She really needs to focus on her family. I wish her the best.
      Now it will be a pile up ala Danielle on Teresa…don’t think I want to watch that either.

    • Francisbean0009

      Great article Lynn! Hope you become a regular here.

    • OneMoreInBoston

      it’s the best decision Jac could make and get her family back- Bravo is destroying everything in it’s path.

      • RHWBHROCKS

        I don’t understand people who say that Bravo is at fault. I don’t think anyone had a gun to their heads to sign a contract. In this life, we are the ones in control of the path we lay and follow. 

    • BB

      Finally someone with some common sense!  I applaud her!  And I applaud you Lynn Hudson for keeping us updated on the latest news.

    • Drkswilliams

      Yipppppppeeeeeeee! Jaqueline has integrity!!!!!!!!!!!! No more suffering through with Caroline butting in your business. No more forced time together. Next best thing you and Chris can do is MOVE FAR AWAY! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!

    • Puffer Lip some more

      Wrong about housewives who have left franchises on their own accord.   Lynn had my interest up to that point.

      • Drkswilliams

        There were extenuating circumstances with Dina. Look it up. Adios.

      • LynnNChicago

        Dina was allowed to announce she was leaving on her own accord but she did NOT, Jeana had a dispute about money and when Bravo wouldn’t pay her what she wanted, she left, she did not WANT to leave, she called their bluff and walked away.  Bethenny is the only other housewife who left on her own accord.

        • EmergencyPeopleEmergency

          Again with the 411. Thanks for schooling them Lynn.

            • Taragonewind

              Thank You. You are grown and have a mind of your own. LOVES IT.

            • Anonymous

              Thanks for the link Trillian. I LOL when I read that post too. Like you, I don’t see where there’s a  ”scoop”. As I posted earlier, I didn’t see any shred of proof to support her “scoop”. I do hope it’s true, for Jaq and her familys sake but until there’s an article out there that clearly shows some sort of PROOF, I’m not biting. It’s just to easy to make such claims and to get the masses believing. A Sheeple, I am NOT!!!  =P

              If you think about it, any one of us could come up with the same type of ”scoop” as Lynn’s but honestly, what would be the point? Other than the obvious? I’m sorry but I don’t feel the need to have people pat me on the back or to thank me endlessly. Hey, that’s just how I roll. =) 

            • Leah

              It’s obvious you have a problem with this blogger.  Why I don’t know nor do I care, but to insult other commenters is just rude and frankly ignorant.  Sheeples?  What you’re saying is that unless you disagree with someone, you don’t have a mind of your own?  That makes no sense.  Sounds like you have a personal problem to me.
              I will say that I’ll miss Jac – she’s one of my favorites but I understand her leaving and I respect her even more for it.

          • Taragonewind

            Bunch of booty lickers. You are all supposed to be grown too. SMH. Sheeple not people.

        • Trillian

          So now Bravo allowed Dina to save face even though she forged documents for Bravo?

          Jeana called Bravo’s bluff?  Are you sure you don’t have that backwards?  Is any of this true?

          “Bethenny is the only other housewife who left on her own accord.”  Who were the others?

        • Puffer Lip some more

          This quote from you:   ”This is a first for any Housewives series as no Housewife has ever walked away voluntarily.”

          Is simply not true. 

          Here are some alumni housewives that Jax’s PR spin follows.  OC’s Lauri, Jo and Tammi.  Atlanta’s Lisa and Larsa from Miami have left in voluntary exit plans.

          With respect for Jax saving face, word is that she’s being replaced by another Guidice family member. 

        • Ablg30

          what about Lauri??!

    • Kats2

      Great Scoop Lynn!!!  Very happy Jac is leaving, focus on family.  

    • KimMadre43

      The New Jersey camp will have to duke it out with you. You won’t b missing a thing. Now if Jill Zarin will get going, all will be well on RHONYC. Thanks Lynn.

    • TigerWoody

      They’ll just throw another in-law on the show to F with Terese.

    • EmergencyPeopleEmergency

      Can always depend on Lynn for the Housewives 411. Hope to see more of you here.

      Jacqueline, you may have just saved your life, your sanity, and your family.

    • LynnNChicago

      Dina did not walk away, she was under contract and would not have been allowed to walk away just because she doesn’t like Danielle.  Dina signed on with her daughter filming with her, when Bravo learned that Dina forged her ex-husband’s signature on Season 1 release, then refused  to allow Lexi to film season two, Bravo let her go.  

      • Trillian

        R U an attorney?  Did Bravo confirm this?  Did Bravo say Dina forged her ex-husband’s signature?  Bravo only wanted Dina if Lexi could be filmed?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Deborah-Shugar/1321571691 Deborah Shugar

        Thank you for the article.  You’re the best.  From reading peoples’ comments, it reminds me of politics – when they don’t like what you say, watch out.  And, I just love your blog.  You couldn’t be more right on about the HWs.  Keep up the good work.

    • Its-in-the-stars

      First Kim’s getting married (rolling eyes) and now this? Good for you Jacqueline. Wishing everything turns out well for you and Ash and rest of your fam.

    • guest

      good riddance!

    • nancy

      Good job, Lynn. Jacs, you are doing the right thing for your family.

    • Happygal

      WOW – what a scoop Lynn- leave it to LynnNchicago to have all of the real stuff on the Housewives!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YIX5OUYOK5F7C2JJU5ENFSDWIM Logan

      In light of everything going on (Jill Zarin,bullying, Kelly Bensimon psychosis, and Russell Armstrongs death) I would hope Bravo and Andy are not giving Jac a hard time contractually…The sad thing about it to is people, especially Jill Zarin and Kelly B, who are fine financially without the show,are soo addicted to their own egos and fame, that regardless of the money, they will do and say anything to stay on tv, and to me, that is the scariest thing of all.  Bravo should really get rid of these two, before they hurt anyone else or themselves.

    • Pynes

      Way to go, Lynn! So proud of you getting this scoop! :)

      • Trillian

        “It is confirmed that Jacqueline Laurita is now filming her LAST season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

        Jacqueline’s six-year contract is still in full force and effect and

        What scoop?  Lynn has scooped nothing.  How can it be confirmed if Jacueline Laurita’s contract is “in full force” but “does not want to return”?  More bs from Lynn.

        • Trillian

          s/b Jacqueline not Jacueline in first sentence of last paragraph

        • Anon

          Good point.  As usual, Lynn is talking out of both sides of her ample ass.

          She first says that Jac is definitely leaving then says Jac is hoping that Bravo allows her to break her contract? 

          Which is it Lynn?

      Totally over NJ, never got into Atlanta or Miami, OC and NY now bore me and with the suicide in BH and not renewing at least one more season of DC… meh.  I’d rather have empty space in my DVR at this point.

    • Jane

      I love how Lynn just reports this news as if she is a representative of Bravo. As if it is fact. A real journalist would at least disclose that they know Bravo insiders who have revealed this information to them. She just reports this “fact” without giving us a back story. Load of crap, this is.

    • Jane

      Jo’s another example of a HW that left voluntarily.

    • Furalis

      I’m so glad to finally see one of the Mom’s realize this is not an avenue to include your children. I wonder if this is a start for others to leave.

    • Anonymous

      I didn’t know that Lynn~I think it’s a great idea though. I wonder how much she knows about her
      ex & his new wife. Ashley needs a JOB or go back to school.

    • Shadester

      I loved this article but was seriously disappointed when I went to Lynn’s blog and saw her slamming EVERYONE that questioned her info. THAT is not professional, she cited that it is a WASTE of her time to answer questions or review her facts ie that Jaq was not the first to leave housewives. Sorry Lynn but the general public may not be privy to or have all the information that you collect. All we can go by is the info that IS released to the general public that states that other housewives have left the show prior to Jaq. That being said, good for Jaq to have smartened up and I hope she gets out before too much damage is done! Lynn, bad form to go back to your site and state that anyone here that had the nerve to question YOUR statement is a waste of time. Any reader has an obligation and a right to question facts that are put before them and not believe EVERYTHING just because someone says it is true. Forgive us for exercising that right. I have always admired you in the past, but I can’t help but say this has disappointed me.

      • Puffer Lip some more

        Agree.  I don’t think it’s a waste of time to question the circumstances that Lynn states as fact here.  Diva antics and ego aside, Lynn can back up her claims or come off as mean spirited in an uncooperative way.

      • Anonymous

        Shadester…. that’s Lynn’s MO and here’s the kicker, she’s not alone. Serveral of her hobby blogger pals do the same thing. LOL If you don’t agree with her/them, right off the bat, you’re deemed a “troll” (and that’s the least offensive thing she/they will call or say about you). It’s sad that a grown a** woman can’t handle it when people don’t see things her way OR, that they have the audacity, (GASP) to question her “facts/agenda”. In the article, I didn’t see any sources listed. Did anyone else? Most of the article reeks of make believe and the rest? It’s plain old common sense. Where’s the proof, like….. sources with REAL names or maybe an exclusive done with Jaq?? I’m just guessing here but if Lynn had even 1 of those, I have no doubt that it would have been included in this piece. Just saying….. :)

        “IF” she’s really leaving, I agree. Good for her. For the past two seasons, her main story line has been based around her troubles with her daughter. I see no good coming from using that just to stay on the show in order to get paid!! There’s other ways to earn a pay check without having to embarrass yourself and your family. These HW’s don’t seem to understand that all of that footage will be around for many generations to come. The reality of this reality show is, for the most part, they’re not shown in a good light. I can only imagine how embarrassed their future grandchildren/great-grandchilden will some day be.

        Though I’m still not convinced about her departure, I do hope it’s true. Ashley may not be a fav of mine but I’d be willing to bet that being on this show has caused more drama between the two of them. I also believe it’s making it harder for Ashley to learn the lessons her parents are trying to teach her. FACT IS: When you sell your soul to the reality devils, nothing good can ever come from that!!

      • MM

        Lynn is full of sh@t. She bumped me off of her site (and I was a LOYAL fan of her blog) because I questioned what I felt was an anti-Semitic statement coming from her. I asked her very nicely about it – and she went ballistic. For the most part – her peeps listened to what I had to say, saw that I was truly asking a question, and answered me.  SHE on the other hand, was the biggest blow-hard and could not believe I had the nerve to question her on anything. Came as a total surprise, because I had liked her so. Now I see I was right regarding her reaction and treatment of people. Lynn, you’ve turned into a bit@h. You are not what you think. Your ego is immense and for no reason. It’s a damn shame.

      Didn’t Dina walk away because she didn’t want to deal with danielle anymore?

    • Carriechaney60

      The statement that no housewife has walked away isnt correct Dina Manzo left the RHONJ and now has her own show called Dina’s Party !!!!

      • Djmullahey

        Good Point. Bethenny left too.

    • Haylaura

      I am always impressed with any of the women who walk away from these shows. Good for Jacqueline for realizing that being on this show is not healthy for her and her daughter and her family. Dina walked away too after the drama with her and Danielle. Under the Circumstances going on with the RHBH and Russell taking his own life, I think Bravo needs to really work hard at not over exposing the hardships these families are going through. It is like the audience is rubber necking to see a car accident or train crash. I love watching Flipping Out and Bethenny , but the Housewives show is just getting worse and worse each season. ;(

    • Funnygirl

      Jac’s thought bubble above her head….

      “Help! My lower jaw is dislocated again!”

    • Anita Vacation

      Jeana also walked away. Reality tea has only just posted a bit of info but as usual they are a day late and a dollar short!!!

    • LynnNChicago

      I still say Jac was first Housewife to walk away just because it was the right thing to do…  Why did the housewives all leave their shows?  Find out here:  http://wp.me/p1Knfy-ca  

      • Puffer Lip some more

        Throw usual bravo sanctioning to the wind and introduce casting of upcoming seasons while a current season is still airing.  No source or insider info?  Sticking to your guns. You got some moxy, I like that.

    • Taragonewind

      Expert and star blogger. LMMFAO. This blogger is not about being fair, she is about who she likes. Her and Her lil posse threaten to unfollow people. I said goodbye a long time ago when she had the hate blog for JZ. I do not like JZ, but eff it if I know her enough to hate her off something I saw on a reality tv show. The most hateful stuff comes out of this group. That was a funny joke though. Expert and star blogger. hahahahahahaha. Okee dokie arti chokieee.

    • StephCheyCooke

      All my favorite Housewives leave… Dina from RHONJ, Lynn from RHOC, Lisa from RHOA, and now Jacqueline! I’m losing faith in the show. I can relate to all of these women, and they’re all gone and getting ready to be gone. I hate that Jacqueline is making this decision. You know we won’t be seeing her, at all, after she quits because she doesn’t really have a career like Dina. & After Lynn and Lisa left their housewives shows, we never heard anything about them. She’ll slowly fade… but I think she’ll come to her senses and hopefully stay.

       In previous seasons Ashley and Jacqueline have talked talked about how intense their arguments/fights are. Now they’re being highlighted and the main storyline for these recent episodes and I honestly think it will just pass. They’ve really got to sit back, relax, and watch everyone else’s drama. It’s different for them when the light is on THEM. I also think it’s funny to watch Season 1 then watch this season… yeah, you’ll notice that Jacqueline is a lot less ‘faker’ than she was in the first season. I think she’ll stay. 

      Ashley LOVES the attention, she can’t talk about how horrible Bravo is because that’s how people know her. After each episode she tweets about how she gained 2,000 followers overnight and I’m just like yeah…people want to see you tweet dumb things, just like all the dumb things you do and say on TV. All of these housewives can turn this into an opportunity for them. Make a cookbook (Teresa), make a song (Kim, Melissa, LuAnn), start a clothing line, or branch off into designing. YOU control your actions and the one’s benefiting from the show are the smart ones. The other ladies are just making themselves look stupid! ha.

    • Pamb456

      Lauri on RHOC walked away. Also Tammy and Quinn on OC, but they mat have been dropped by Bravo.

    • guest

      That’s not true. Plenty have walked away voluntarily. Especially in OC. 

    • Happy2day

      Well if you check twitter it seems there is another sis in law out there that doesn’t like Teresa that is married to Joe Guidice that is friends with Melissa and her hateful sisters.  So, I am sure she will try to make herself “on display” at Teresa’s expense.  Jac, don’t let the door hit you in the rear when you go.

    • HwfanBravo

      You can tell this Lynn person is full of it. While Jac may be leaving (I wouldn’t miss her) it is not the 1st time a HW voluntarily walked out of a show. Do you remember Dina Manzo? Clearly, this Lynn person doesn’t do her homework.

    • Hopperbly

      When I heard Bravo sending out a casting call for RHONJ I was hoping it was to replace Teresa and her scummy husband. I’m disappointed to read that it’s to replace Jackie. I felt her pain this season because I’ve had mirror like problems with my daughter as well. I wanted to see Ashley get her act together the same way mine has and I was hoping we would see Jackie finally get the love from that brat that she as a mom deserves. Oh well, another season hearing that whinny voice that Teresa does so well. Good luck, Jackie…things do get better.

      Theresa will be “Zarined” next–kicked to the curb, fired, let go, dismissed–whatever they want to call it.
      Dina Manzo left on her own.

    • Heather 244

      Uh, this article is incorrect.  Previous NY Housewife, Dina Manzo, left in the middle of Season 2.

    • Mike

      I don’t understand this notion where you say they cannot walk away.  Of course they can. It doesn’t matter whether or not you are under contract. No one can force you to do anything, especially in NY contract which is all of Bravo contracts. 

      They would be precluded from entering a new reality series of a similar nature.  That could be part of the full contract, but there must be consideration for it. This is very old case law look up the Warner Wolf case it started it all.  Let’s go to the video tape guy…No one can force you to complete a contract for your personal service, but they can preclude you from participating in another under the contract provisions if there is ample consideration already given for the preclusion, that is NY law no other. Sorry!

      The Housewives shows are making Bravo a ton of money.  Teresa is shady just like her classless husband.  I am sure they dropped the bankruptsy to keep themselves out of jail for hiding assets.  Jacqueline is making a great decision for her and her family but I will be sorry to see her go.  I think there is a chance for Jacqueline to stay, Bravo might give Teresa a pink slip and she can start whining like the New York babys who refuse to film with others.  Go away Teresa, you make me sick to my stomach and take the troll with you.
