Jacqueline Laurita may be one of favorite Jersey housewives, but this devoted wife and mom grew up far away from the Jerz — in Las Vegas, Nevada to be exact.

However, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star made the journey to the East Coast many years ago and has been married to her husband, Chris Laurita, for more than 10 years. The couple currently resides in the affluent neighborhood of Franklin Lakes, N.J. with their two sons, C.J., 10, and Nicholas, 3.

Jacqueline also has a daughter, Ashlee, from a previous marriage, who currently resides in Los Angeles.

Are you surprised that Jacqueline isn't originally from New Jersey?
