Jacqueline Laurita gave her insider perspective on Sunday’s explosive final chapter in the three-part The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special, in which peripheral cast member Kim DePaola claimed responsibility for the “Strippergate” scandal that shook the Giudice-Gorga family to its’ very foundation.
The popular housewife took to Twitter, where she expressed skepticism that Teresa Giudice was more or less an innocent bystander — as Kim D claims — in the scandal that implicated her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, as once having worked at a seedy New Jersey strip joint.
On Twitter Sunday, Jacqueline asked, “[Why] isn’t [Teresa] mad at Kim for destroying her family & still trying to put it on me? Because she wanted it to happen & let Kim take the fall.”
Jacqueline wrote the “bottom line is [Teresa] knew [Melissa] was the target and said nothing.”
Teresa “planted the seed about [Melissa] being a stripper first,” Jacqueline wrote, noting that when she learned of the conspiracy, she tried to warn her friend Melissa via text.
“I would never hurt Melissa,” she wrote. “She knows it.”
Jacqueline wrote she’s happy the season is finished, though called it “WAY too stressful.”
“It’s done now & so is my friendship with Teresa,” she wrote.
All of the show’s cast members are expected back for a fifth season and as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Bravo is scouting new ladies to add to the cast.
