Jacqueline Laurita is setting the record straight!
On Tuesday, the Real Housewives of New Jersey veteran took to Twitter to clarify reports on her rumored non return.
“I was asked by an executive producer what it would take for me to come back to #RHONJ…I said full time and a whole new cast. Lol! (Dolores [Catania] can stay.) I don’t like the direction it’s going in anymore,” Laurita, 47, tweeted on Tuesday, March 27.
Jacqueline has been a reality fixture for seven seasons and is likely referring to former co-stars, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and cast villain, Danielle Staub. Viewers watched tensions explode between Jacqueline and the trio in previous seasons, although Jacqueline maintains a solid friendship with Dolores Catania.
She continues: “I’m a very positive person & I’m very happy with my life. I love my family & I love my friends. I want to do positive things. I love sharing my journey & knowledge I’ve gained along the way. I love helping people and that’s what I am going to continue to do.”
Jacqueline was one of the original cast members to launch the series, and was briefly moved to part-time in Season 6, before returning to a full-time slot in Season 7.
As reported, Jacqueline and her sister-in-law, Caroline Manzo, were targeted by RHONJ producers earlier this year about returning to the Bravo reality series.
Teresa, Melissa, Dolores and Margaret Josephs will return for season 9. Danielle will likely return as a “Friend of a Housewife,” for season 9.
