Is Bravo firing Jacqueline Laurita AND Caroline Manzo from Real Housewives of New Jersey? That’s the newest rumor, as reported by Huffington Post’s Naughty But Nice Rob.
The latest RHONJ buzz comes on the heels of Jacqueline Laurita’s feud with Teresa Giudice. From Laurita’s tweets, it seemed a done deal that Jacqueline planned to quit Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The newest report is that both Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo will be leaving RHONJ because they don’t create enough drama!
A Bravo insider tells HuffPost, “Jacqueline and Caroline were told months ago that they wouldn’t be returning for a fifth Season if they didn’t bring the drama. This season has been dominated by Melissa [Gorga] and Teresa [Giudice] drama and season four, that they are filming right now, is going to be no different.”
Have Jacqueline and Caroline toned down the drama to try and protect their kids and families?
One can only imagine that the reality show grind begins to take its toll on a family and perhaps playing it up for the cameras isn’t doing any favors for their families.
Laurita used to have the drama of her relationship with daughter Ashley, but Ashley is no longer on the show; Manzo hasn’t really played up much family drama… Bravo likely will fill the void with ladies that can stir up a bunch of crazy to keep viewers tuned in.
The insider squeals, “Producers have been showing all the ladies private footage of what they have all been saying behind each others’ backs hoping to bring Jacqueline and Caroline into the drama. But so far, they have kept their cool on camera and saved the drama for Twitter, not TV.”
Caroline Manzo recently commented on Jacqueline Laurita’s status on RHONJ: “I wish I knew. Do you have the answers? I stay away from all of that. I think it is good that I don’t get involved in the nonsense. The filming is a very intense process and just like a family you fight, you love, and you hate one minute so I really don’t know what is going on. As you’ve noticed, I haven’t been tweeting about it because I don’t want to know what is going on. I don’t know [if you'll see Jacqueline on the Season 3 reunion].”
Will Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita leave Real Housewives of New Jersey and return their focus to their families?
