Sparks were flying everywhere on The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion show last week. Caroline accused Danielle Staub of committing an unforgivable offense, Theresa flipped over a table, and innocent bystanders everywhere died of a tension headache. Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline and Dina Manzo’s sister-in-law, recently opened up to Life & Style about the real reason behind the feud….
According to the magazine, Daniellewrote on her Bravo blogthat all she’d done was “pass along a phone number to [Dina's ex-husband] to contact the proper people,” but Jacqueline Laurita tells Life & Style that what Danielle did was far worse.
“I don’t think it was something as simple as giving a phone number out, but leave it to Danielle to try to downplay her whole dirty deed,” Jacqueline says. “She’s an angry, bitter person. She felt Dina rejected her, so she went out to destroy her!” While Jacqueline wouldn’t get into the specifics of the incidentÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”claiming “innocent people” would get hurtÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”and insider tells Life & Style, “Danielle was trying to harm Dina by giving her ex-husband a phone number that might give him leverage in the custody of their daughter, Lexi.”
Jacqueline says she refuses to do any scenes with the family nemesis. “I certainly won’t be filming with Danielle or wanting to talk about her. She’s a closed chapter in my life,” says Jacqueline, who welcomed son Nicholas on June 11. “I’d love to see more happy and fun family scenes than Danielle drama.”
