NOW THAT’S FUNNY
Jacqueline Laurita has hinted, she has tweeted, and now, I think, she’s made it official … she is leaving "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." As she says on Twitter, “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore. It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
You go, girl. You go be REAL.
Jacqueline suggests that her reason for getting fed up with the show is a scheme by Teresa Giudice to discredit Melissa Gorga, who is actually Teresa’s sister-in-law, by revealing on camera that Melissa had once been a stripper. Got that.
Jacqueline then tweeted that she thought Teresa was “scum”.
Girl, you are so REAL!
Now shooting season four, the RHONJ has a history of bringing up embarrassing moments from the participants’ past. In this case, the supposed strip club boss was at a fashion show during the filming of a recent episode. The cameras tried to catch Melissa and the strip boss together, and Jacqueline was repulsed by that. She says Melissa was only a bartender at that club, never a dancer.
Her tweets revealed that she is sick and tired of the whole thing, which I presume means the completely fake and fabricated way the women relate to each other. She is sick of the lies they tell about their families to cover up arrests and bankruptcies, or the way they bring attention to themselves by bragging about arrests and bankruptcies.
I don’t blame her, and believe me, I’m all about her getting back to being REAL. But REAL means you don’t pose on a marble staircase in a silk cocktail dress and full makeup just ‘cause. REAL means you are not going to Punta Cana with on an all-expense paid trip. REAL means you’re going back to Franklin Lakes and sit in traffic on Route 17 just like everyone else.
