Exclusive: Jacqueline Laurita Not Returning To RHONJ Season 8

The cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have already been filming season eight, however one cast member was still under contract negotiations until yesterday. That’s right, Jacqueline Laurita still had not signed on for season eight, and on Friday, our insiders exclusively tell us that the decision was made that she wouldn’t be returning to the show.

“Jacqueline is out,” our source tells us. “Production wants nothing to do with her because she was so much trouble last season.”

But Danielle Staub is still in, our insider confirms. “Danielle is part-time and they are looking to add two new Housewives.”

Jacqueline posted a tweet thanking viewers for her time on the show, hinting at her departure. “Just wanted to Thank all of you for following, loving, & supporting me & my family over the last 7 seasons of #rhonj !We appreciate you all!”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    From what i saw of the last season, that will be the best thing for her. It’s never fun to watch people literally become mentally unhinged on television.

    Thank god, returning would have been suicide with Danielle. I guess Danielle is going to have to fight with someone else!

    • DaysofWineandRoses

      Yup. I’m almost certain if Jacqueline would have stayed this is PRECISELY where next season’s conflict arc in the season would be heading. Didn’t care for it the first time around, and I certainly wouldn’t be tuning in for the sequel between those two.

    Bravo Bravo, you made the right choice for a change!

    Best News!!! Jacqueline needs to out of the spotlight and work full-time on getting healthy. Perhaps she does not see it that way, but her aggressiveness and lack of judgment seemed to be getting to ‘out-of-control’ levels. Hopefully, she will take care of herself and, most importantly, her family…..they need a healthy mom.

    Good. Buh-bye. Jackie and her daughter are both unhinged and fat. She is my literal ‘worst HW of all time’.

    • Tammy

      What an ignorant thing to say “fat”?

  • Nancysue

    She really needs the money, I’m surprised!

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    Thank God! This is the BEEEEESSSSST decision for the franchise. Her only storyline was how mad can she get at Teresa….girl bye….

    I haven’t watched in years, but I always thought Jacqueline had problems. Maybe it stemmed from having a chiild at a young age, and she herself was not mature enough to handle it. She almost seemed jealous of her daughter, but always kept up with buying her things. She is shallow and self absorbed by all that I watched, constantly crying for pity, when some of it seemed so inappropriate. Your child who has autism does something right and you cry and sob in front of him, sending him mixed signals…like you got mommy upset when you did that. I want to say stop pitying yourself Jac. It is hard to feel sorry for you when you have more than most people ever dream of, but all you want is people telling you how wonderful you are and to love you when you are not happy for them.
    (I have relatives who live in the same town. It is a beautiful place. Just saying.)
    Maybe there are legal issues from what seemed to be (allegedly) described as stealing from the jointly owned business to go on lavish trips and spend money that was not earned….I don’t know what is happening now, but when there is stealing involved, there is trouble.
    Jacqueline needs psychiatric counseling in a big way. She is not a child and she does not need babying. Chris did that with her too much from what I saw. She needs to be a mother to her children, and she should not be needing so much mothering herself. I did not watch this past season and missed the mess. I know others won’t miss her either.

    of course she not coming back Teresa runs that show just like lisa v run Beverly hills show. should go back to what show was about real friends not actors. to have felon Teresa still on show is just plain ass dumb. make the bitch get a real job quit using her kids for a paycheck. hope someday soon these housewives shows will go away.

    • Wicked Cupcake

      I don’t. I enjoy the shows and the ones I don’t enjoy I simply have the option to not watch them. Pretty simple. No one is forced to watch them.

  • Starr

    Only too happy she wont be back. For a great deal of reasons, she irritates me.

  • cat62

    She looked like she needed to stop the show. I was worried for her mental health the past couple of years.

  • Beverly Turner

    thank god she won’t be coming back this year. she is no good.
