What is Chris Laurita’s New Business Venture?


This season on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Chris and Jacqueline Laurita are being open about their personal financial struggles. During the premiere episode of the show, Chris made it clear that things were so tight he even had to sell some of their jewelry for money.

During this week’s episode he introduced a new popcorn business: The Little Kernel and described it as a line of mini popcorn that is made with 100 percent pure olive oil. It’s available in six flavors: naked, truffle sea salt, sweet and salty kettle, pink Himalayan salt, butter, and white cheddar.

So what happened to BLK? Jacqueline took to Twitter to let viewers know that BLK is still going strong. “In case you were wondering @blkbeverages continues to grow & is selling nationally and internationally now! #rhonj.”

Jacqueline shared in her latest blog, “The last two years have been challenging for Chris and I financially, because it takes time to build a new business and profit from it, especially in order to continue living the lifestyle we’ve been accustomed to living while meeting all of our financial obligations.

After my husband lost his company during that rough economy, it took some time for the decrease in income to catch up to us. We were also not prepared for the cost of raising a child with special needs. No matter what financial challenges and obligations we’ve faced, Nicholas’ needs have always been a huge top priority for us, and we’ve done everything we can to not disrupt his routine. Somehow, during our struggle, we have managed to stick it out and keep fighting to get through it.”
