Teresa Giudice Fired: The Real Housewives of New Jersey Rehires Jacqueline Laurita - Dina Manzo Furious

Remember when The Real Housewives of New Jersey was one of the best shows on Bravo? It helped to turn the housewives into a franchise rather than just a fluke but this season is just beyond bad. Bravo execs brought back Dina Manzo thinking that she would create some good buzz and in doing so, they agreed to fire her sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita. The funny thing is that Dina and her menagerie of dysfunctional pets are beyond boring and it was Jacks that actually had real stuff going on.

Last season Jacqueline had plastic surgery and was also very honest about her emotional battle with raising an autistic son. In other words, fans really like her and Jacks was relatable. Since the ratings are dropping by the week she has been rehired on a limited basis. Of course Dina is seething but Bravo could care less. The Real Housewives of New Jersey is in serious trouble and they need to make moves to save the season rather than pacifying individual cast members.

Teresa Giudice is proving to be an even bigger problem because she is simply refusing to film any more for the current season. Contractually she has fulfilled what Bravo wanted but they have asked her to film more to help save this season and Tre has refused. She is spending the summer at the Jersey shore with her four kids and with sentencing being right around the corner she is focusing on her family now.

Teresa used to be Andy Cohen’s golden child but in recent months it has become quite obvious that Bravo is no longer supporting her like they once did and because of that Teresa is refusing to do anything extra to promote The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Rumor has it now that even if she somehow escapes a jail term Bravo will be firing her anyway. Do you think that the network would be better off cutting ties with the Giudice clan and firing Teresa in order to separate themselves from her criminal behavior? Is it a move that is long overdue? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    Long overdue is an understatement but Bravo had to know Teresa & Joe were frauds from day one. I’m sure many viewers wondered how 2 uneducated relatively young people from immigrant working class parents acquire the type of wealth they portrayed? I’m sure the production crew, the cast and the people at Bravo knew they were frauds. Look at Joe, according to the tabloids his drivers lic has been suspended over 40 times, that has to tell you something about Joe the man. All I want to see is this come to an end.

      “I’m sure many viewers wondered how 2 uneducated relatively young people from immigrant working class parents acquire the type of wealth they portrayed? I’m sure the production crew, the cast and the people at Bravo knew they were frauds.”

      Wow, that is extremely racist. Let’s take Teresa’s brother, for example. Is he a criminal, too? You don’t have to be “educated” to be skilled in a trade, such as construction, which can be very lucrative…At least that’s how it appears when I visit my rich hillbilly uncle Woody. Moron.

    Dina is very boring,,,,,i fast forward past her. bring back Jacqueline!!

  • Susabella

    Yes ! The fans want Teresa fired ! No admitted felon should be allowed the privilege to be on that show.
    And Dina is boring, a snob, vain, and un like- able. Bravo made a mistake bringing her back ! The whole show sinks now

    • Michelle Werner

      …How is she a felon when she hasn’t even been prosecuted? Dumb-dumb.

  • Miss Mimi

    Not much to comment from what I read above it pissed me off that people do not think about the lives of these people just worried on their ratings b.s. I do not blame Teresa for not wanting to continue I don’t care for her much from what I seen but you people she is human and has a heart period and as far as bringing Dina and not jacq. Yall made a mistake Jacqueline is amazing real and a very sweet gal if I were her I’d tell bravo to kiss my ass to sorry Bout ya and she can move onto bigger better neither women deserve the extra drama stress you are bringing to them

  • Schelita

    For the sake of the children this family needs to be removed from the show. These little girls are so disrespectful it is not funny. And Kim B. Is teaching her daughters to sleep with married men. She is not teaching them to be independent.

  • AnitaC24

    All of these housewives’ franchises need to go belly-up!

  • janie

    She should never have been given a new contract, that’s where it should have stopped. This franchise should be canceled, it’s ridiculous. The public is tired of them all.

  • marianne ribes

    please get rid of Teresa, her accent is disgusting her screeching voice when she’s lying and stroking of her weave (again a sign of lying) is annoying and all the money she earned on show should have gone directly to her creditors. See how she copes in prison

  • notademocrat

    The only way to save the show is to can everyone and start totally fresh.

  • Sharon

    Flaws and all, I like Teresa for her lively “what’s she going to do now” persona. The others add to the mix with their uncontained obsession over Teresa (thus proving they all lie when they say how they want to avoid drama). I didn’t like seeing Danielle leave for the same reason. Now with Teresa gone, what’s there to watch?

  • BreannaFox89

    “because she is simply refusing to film any more for the current season.
    Umm..the season has already in the can, so I don’t know why they indicate that she won’t ” film any more “

  • Michelle Werner

    So now it’s AMERICA’S fault, and specifically the fault of the poster above you, for being entertained by Teresa Giudice, that thievery and fraud exist in the world, and did so before the aforementioned even had any fans. You sir, are a GENIUS!

  • Michelle Werner

    Please don’t bring ANY of those families back. But I could SO do with out the younger Giudice children. They are so annoying to watch!

  • Michelle Werner

    I liked Danielle in the beginning and hated Tre and now I like Tre…I always pull for the underdog

    Big mistake Bravo by getting rid of the master pieces Caroline, Jacqueline, Melissa, Kathy n Rosie…

  • Kathe M

    Bravo should have “cut ties” with the Guidice’s the minute they pled guilty! I have lost all respect for any entertainment media outlet that keeps supporting criminals… and yes Bravo had to of known something was up since day 1. Anyone with any intelligence should have figured something was up when the Guidice’s were paying cash for everything in the first few episodes. Donald Trump doesn’t even do that & he definitely has that kind of money!

  • jackiejune

    Truthfully, the twins and Amber AND Amber’s husband act as though they are uneducated peasants in Italy. No class. No social graces.
    As for Dina, she’s on a different playing field. The funny thing is she quit the first time due to Danielle’s drama. So she bettered herself this time? I don’t think so. I think she needed a paycheck since she is getting divorced.

  • JORDAN MAYFIELD

    I think they should definitely fire her. I think that keeping her on the show is basically accepting and allowing the public to think that it’s okay to use false W 2’s and fake bank records and fake ID’s and fake documents. it’s not anyone in their right mind know that this girl’s entire time from season 1has been a lie. She went tobanks and told them that she had a stucco business she knew full well what was going on and was approving it everything.
