Remember when New Jersey was just the armpit of New York? Well, those days are over. Maybe not everyone agrees, but it definitely has the attention of the country. A lot of that has to do with the Real Housewives of New Jersey. And one lady who was there when it all began: Jacqueline Laurita.
If you have ever watched one of the four seasons of New Jersey, you know who she is: the big-lipped sweetheart who, unlike ladies in other franchises, is actually a full-blown housewife. She is also noted for being friends with the enemy: first with Danielle Staub, then Teresa Giudice. Well, that was until late this year when it hit the headlines that the two now hated each other. Here is what Jacqueline had to say about Teresa via Twitter: "Teresa is scum!"
Recently, we caught up with her at a blk. Water event at the South Beach hotel Breakwater. She wasn't hesitant to tell us why she skipped the reunion, her thoughts on season four and whether she is thinking of calling it quits.
