Jacqueline Laurita’s Rumored Departure: Will You Miss Her?

With Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey behind us, we can't help but focus on what's to come in Season 6. So far, we've heard we'll be meeting some new ladies, but we're also going to be losing some regulars.

Along with the rumored return of Dina Manzo, we have newcomers Amber Marches and twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano joining the cast. All three women are described as family ladies, and none of them have a relationship with any of the current Housewives. The introductions should make for an interesting new dynamic on the Jersey franchise.

Sadly, Caroline Manzo has bid us goodbye, and Kathy Wakile is supposedly being demoted to "friend of the Housewives," and now there are also rumors that Jacqueline Laurita will be making her exit.

Over the years, Jacqueline has definitely grown on us. The Ethel to Teresa Giudice's Lucy, Jac is always good for a laugh and even better for a catty confrontation. But it's her recent passion for helping her son Nicholas that really won us over.

During Season 5, we loved watching Jacqueline overcome her fear of speaking in public when she addressed an audience on behalf of Autism awareness. Her devotion to Nick is both admirable and touching.

That being said, we're not completely surprised to hear that Jacqueline is considering a departure from reality TV. With all of the work that she's doing to help Nick, she needs more time to focus on her family.

Will you miss Jacqueline if she leaves or do you think she's run her course on RHoNJ? Vote in our reaction buttons, and share your thoughts in the comments section below.
