The drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey just keeps getting thornier!

After a long week of rumors flying about cast member Jacqueline Laurita’s departure from the New Jersey cast, the fighting has reached a new high, as Jacqueline took to Twitter this morning to call former BFF and fellow castmate Teresa Giudice “scum.”

“Teresa put out an article that I text her and threatened to release those pictures and I didn't! I wanted to prove that. Teresa is scum!” she tweeted.

The source of the drama? A revelation earlier this week about castmate Melissa Gorga’s past employment at a New Jersey strip bar called Lookers. Allegedly, the manager of the bar ambushed Melissa at this week’s Posch Fashion Show. But instead of a dramatic confrontation, the cast refused to tape with him in a show of solidarity for Melissa.

Now, Jacqueline is alleging that Teresa actually helped set up Melissa: “She knew. She plotted it. She played dumb on camera and even defended Melissa,” Jacqueline tweeted in a long message this morning. “[Teresa]’s no good and yes... She has stabbed me in the back PLENTY of times. I’m not so forgiving anymore.”

Whether or not Jacqueline’s telling the truth, accusing her co-stars and producers of orchestrating drama won’t earn her any friends at Bravo. Could Jacqueline really be through with RHONJ?
