Is Jacqueline Laurita leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Jacqueline Laurita from The Real Hosuewives of New Jersey

The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Jacqueline Laurita must have had enough of the drama, catfights, and (let’s be honest) outright violence because the 41-year-old mother of three is reportedly leaving the show after next season!

The popular Bravo reality series is currently in its third season but filming has already begun for season 4. (It’s rare for Bravo to return to filming so quickly, but the drama between sister-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues and they didn’t want to miss it.)

According to Jacqueline is filming limited scenes for the fourth season and wants to walk away from the show completely before season five.

Jacqueline is under contract for six seasons but is hoping Bravo will let her walk away, much like her sister-in-law Dina Manzo did midway through season 2, after getting fed up with co-star Danielle Staub.

Given the fireworks display put on by the Giudice and Gorga clans it shouldn’t be an issue letting Jacqueline go. To be honest, the most valuable commodity Jacqueline brought to the table was her immature daughter, Ashley Holmes – who is reportedly also under a six-year contract. Could we possibly see the first ever promotion from daughter to Real Housewife?!? Now that would be interesting!
