If you live in Franklin Lakes, N.J., and happen to star on “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” being a stripper is just about the worst insult you can fling at a fellow cast member.
At least that’s our impression, considering the accusations made over the years about the ladies, from Danielle Staub to Melissa Gorga and now even the show’s resident sweetheart, Jacqueline Laurita.
In Sunday’s (Oct. 14) explosive conclusion to the “RHONJ” reunion, the rest of the menfolk join Joe Guidice on the hot seat. One of the points beleaguered host Andy Cohen tries to clear up is how Jacqueline met her husband, Chris Laurita.
“Joe [Giudice] claims that you told him that you met me in Las Vegas as a stripper,” Jacqueline tells her husband. After Chris insists they met at a trade show in Chicago, Giudice tries to defend himself:
“I never said she was a stripper [and Chris] never came out and said stripper,” Juicy says, before calmly tossing out another grenade. “I think he said he was engaged and he was fooling around with Jackie and he got caught or something like that. Am I right? Maybe I’m wrong.”
Kim D. also joins the cast to clarify another point in Stripper-gate: just how involved Teresa Giudice was in orchestrated the confrontation between Melissa and that creepy dude who claimed to be her former employer at a “gentleman’s club.”
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” reunion finale airs Sunday, Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
