Jacqueline Laurita has NOT left “New Jersey.”
After a reunion show in which Jacqueline refused to participate, compounded with yesterday’s interview in The Hollywood Reporter with “New York” housewife Jill Zarin stating that Laurita quit, most fans had pretty much assumed that she would not be returning to the show.
Zarin stated in the interview that, “Bravo had no delusions that they set up Teresa [Giudice] by hiring her sister-in-law and cousin without letting her know,” Zarin says. “It’s understandable Teresa would be upset. The show couldn’t film now: Teresa and Caroline [Manzo] won’t even be in the same room, and Jacqueline quit. As a cast, they’re kaput.”
Apparently, no one had told Laurita the news. She quickly took to Twitter on Wednesday to calm her fans, writing, “FACT! No, I have not quit the show and no, I have not been fired,” she writes. “Season 5 is a mystery. Guess u will just have to ….Watch What Happens! XO!”
Bravo representatives told THR that shooting for season four has wrapped and confirmed that Laurita is in the entire season.
