We’ve been hearing since The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped on Season 5 that Jacqueline Laurita was out for Season 6. Along with Caroline Manzo, who has been granted a spinoff, Manzo’d With Children, and Kathy Wakile, whose role has supposedly been reduced to “friend”, we heard Jac was being replaced. Word is that we’ll be watching several new additions (and one re-addition) this season: sisters Nicole & Teresa Napolitano and possibly their friend Amber Marchese as well as the return of original cast member Dina Manzo.
But, wait…not so fast, says Jacqueline’s drama-loving daughter Ashlee Holmes! Apparently, she’s started a blog and is making waves with her very first post. In the post, Ashlee shares some “random facts” about herself. Checkout #8:
“My Mom was/is one of Bravo’s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey. Seasons 1-6.”
Hmm….was/is? Despite all evidence to the contrary Ashlee includes season 6 in her mom’s Real Housewives resume…
So, should we take Ashlee’s word for it? In my opinion, probably not. This is the very first time I’ve heard anything about Jac’s involvement with RHONJ Season 6. And, Ashlee certainly stands to gain from stirring up rumors via her brand new blog.
Sources close to the show continue to insist that “Jacqueline’s name will obviously be mentioned on the show but she is not returning despite Ashley’s claims. Those claims are absolutely false.”
So, with all this being said, I’ll go ahead and stop calling attention to Ashlee’s silly antics now.
