Looks like Jacqueline Laurita is the NeNe Leakes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey! In Touch Magazine is reporting that Jacqueline used to work as an exotic dancer in Las Vegas before meeting her husband, Chris Laurita.

Jacqueline has reportedly confirmed her stripper past to several friends, but is now telling them to deny it. She apparently worked as a stripper so she could pay her bills and care for her then-young daughter, Ashley.

Luckily, Jacqueline met her now-husband Chris at the club, and they fell in love.

Jacqueline reportedly refused to attend the recent Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion because she feared that former castmate Danielle Staub would show up to reveal all the sordid details.

A source tells In Touch, “She feared that Danielle Staub would make a surprise appearance and tell all about Jacqueline’s stripping past. She didn’t want to face the truth.”

We gotta say, it’s getting hard to keep up with the Real Housewives of New Jersey and all their drama!
