The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita is in the middle of a hurricane of controversy right now with her cast mates and Bravo.

“It's true. Jacqueline didn't attend the reunion and doesn’t wish to return to the show,” a source close to the production tells The Hollywood Reporter about recent reports.

The source tells THR that the housewife is currently waiting to see how Bravo will penalize her for skipping the Season 3 reunion and not fulfilling her contract.

It all started on Twitter earlier this week when she voiced her frustrations with the show’s drama stating, “Someone (not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”

Laurita also tweeted, “No reunion for me,” which she later followed up with what looked like her resignation from the show. “I can't be part of the Charade any more,” she writes. “It's unsettling. It's disturbing & against what I stand for. I'm a REAL housewife.”

Laurita’s biggest beef is with cast mate Teresa Giudice. “Teresa has tried to sabotage every member of the cast in many different ways,” the source says. “She’s fooling the public in many ways.”

The housewife also feels that the show’s producers have “created unnecessary and forced drama” according to the source. And with just a month left of shooting on Season 4, she’s “rebelling.”

“She wants to protect her family and her sanity,” the source says. “She feels the environment isn’t healthy and she can’t trust anyone. It’s become stressful for her and it’s just not fun for her anymore.”

Bravo did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
