The Real Housewives of New York City is down four cast members, and now its Hudson River neighbor is having problems, too.
While Bravo fired Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon from New York, New Jersey cast members are jumping ship on their own.
Jacqueline Laurita (above, left) is Tweeting this week that she's done with the show.
After attending Jersey's annual fashion show for the boutique Posche, an event that brought drama in the past, Laurita Tweeted, "Someone (not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad."
Cameras were rolling to film season four (season three is currently airing.)
Laurita also Tweeted that she does not plan to attend the season three reunion taping:
- "No reunion for me. ... I'm tired of the BS & ... low life people.I didn't know this was what I signed up 4. ... I can't be part of the Charade anymore. ... I'm a REAL housewife. ... There is no real love there. ... I'd like to only focus on positive things now please.I threw the trash out.I'm cleaning now and reorganizing.Starting fresh and new."
Teresa Giuidice also sent out some revealing Tweets on Thursday -- keep reading (she was supposedly slapped by Laurita) ...
- "Remember when I was supposedly punched in the face? Now supposedly Jacq slapped me. And I hired a male stripper to expose Melissa... LMAO ... Sorry, it's NOT true. But you'll all have to turn in to Season 4 of RHONJ to see what really happens (the truth is actually way scarier...)"
Laurita has largely stayed out of the drama fray. She is an original cast member, along with Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo. Laurita is Manzo's sister-in-law.
Cast member Dina Manzo (sister of Caroline) left the show on her own in June 2010. Controversial cast member Danielle Staub was fired by Bravo shortly after -- in August 2010.
For season three, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile (sister-in-law and cousin of Giudice) joined the show.
