Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita Tries Surprising New Detox Treatment

Brace yourselves, people! Jacqueline Laurita is up to another one of her crazy schemes and it sounds pretty disgusting. The Real Housewives of New Jersey recently took to Twitter to share her get-detoxed-quick plan.

"Not sure if the foot pads really do anything but they sure looked gross in the morning. I'd rather drink my green drinks to detoxify," Jacqueline wrote.

At least, Jacqueline didn't feel the need to post a photograph of the dingy foot pads, unlike her nemesis, Dina Manzo, who treated us to an up close and personal look at her infected throat a few days ago.

After doing a little Google research, we learned that these magic pads supposedly work by drawing the toxins out of your body while you sleep. You just stick them to the bottom of your feet and let them do their thing. When you peel off the pads in the morning, they are all dark and discolored, filled with the toxins that were floating around your bod. Ew.

What's more, the product also claims to reduce high blood pressure and help with both depression and weight loss.

Does this sound too good to be true? For now, it probably is. There are no scientific studies proving that the foot pads do anything more than look gross when you peel them off in the morning.

We think Jacqueline is better off sticking with her new plan: drinking greens and eating healthy.
