After the constant media attention surrounding Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline and Chris Laurita’s legal woes — you know, their mansion reportedly being in pre-foreclosure, and their mounting tax debt — Jacqueline is finally speaking out. And what exactly is she saying? Well, the Jersey housewife insists that she and her husband are not having problems with their money or their home.
“Thank you for all who were concerned, but my house is NOT in foreclosure,” said Jacqueline. According to Reality Tea, the H’wife insists that there’s no threat in losing her home. “We simply modified our mortgage which is a process. Our mortgage modification has been approved and all is good."
As for skipping out on paying Uncle Sam, the RHoNJ star says “My husband and I have ALWAYS filed and paid our taxes every year. We have NEVER evaded taxes.” The Jersey lady went on to discuss the $340k that she and her husband allegedly owe.
“The $340k was from a tax audit in 2006 in which about 1/2 of that was added interest. We have been disputing this because we didn't think it was fair to pay so much interest on something that we didn't even know we owed until recently. The IRS is currently working with us to lower the amount owed and once that new amount is decided we will, of course, pay the amount."
While that sounds all fine and dandy, it still doesn’t change the fact that the Jersey residents are involved in a bankruptcy trial. And while Jac says that she and her hubby are “good people doing the right thing,” we have to also remember that these two are about to embark on yet another legal battle in wake of assault charges from their brawl with John ‘Johnny the Greek’ Karagiorgis on March 31.
Keeping track of all these legal problems is making us dizzy, so we can only imagine how the Lauritas feel!
