It has been reported that Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Jacqueline Laurita is in the midst of a serious financial crisis. Despite court documents claiming lawsuits and a foreclosure on her New Jersey home, Jacqueline maintains that she and her husband Chris are not having financial trouble.
“Thank you for all who were concerned, but my house is NOT in foreclosure,” Jacqueline insists.
“There is no threat of losing it. We simply modified our mortgage which is a process,” Jacqueline told Reality Tea. “Our mortgage modification has been approved and all is good.”
Jaqueline also explained why she reportedly owes $340,000 in taxes to the state of New Jersey. “My husband and I have always filed and paid our taxes every year. We have never evaded taxes,” she said. “The $340k was from a tax audit in 2006 in which about 1/2 of that was added interest. We have been disputing this because we didn’t think it was fair to pay so much interest on something that we didn’t even know we owed until recently.”
“The IRS is currently working with us to lower the amount owed and once that new amount is decided we will, of course, pay the amount,” Jacqueline explains.
“We are good people doing the right thing,” she adds.
