The foreclosure/divorce/debt bug continues to hound Bravo’s Real Housewives franchises as The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Jacqueline Laurita wrestles with the latter of the three, reportedly owing the state of New Jersey more than $330,000 in taxes!
According to TMZ, the NJ Division of Taxation filed a tax lien against Jacqueline earlier this year for $338,337.05. It is unknown when Jacqueline accrued the debt, but her assets will be in jeopardy if she doesn’t take care of it soon.
This isn’t the first time that the ladies of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been in the news for money issues. In 2010, Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe were rumored to owe upwards of $11 million and Melissa and Joe Gorga allegedly have been having trouble paying their mortgage after refinancing.
Former cast member Danielle Staub isn’t doing well at living up to her claim of being “too good” for the show, filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in June.
It also isn’t the first bit of financial trouble for the Lauritas either. Last year, Jacqueline’s husband Chris and his company Signature Apparel were targeted in a $7.8 million lawsuit which claimed that Chris, his partner Joseph, and their wives drained the company “of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, shopping sprees, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations.”
When news of the lawsuit broke, Jacqueline tweeted, “Sorry to disappoint some of you but business is not the same as personal and accusations don’t make it truth. We are doing good. You’ll see..”
Hopefully, this won’t cause Jacqueline to have another epic meltdown!
