One of the stars of the hit television show, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” may have a breach of contract issue with NBCUniversal the company that owns the cable television channel Bravo which the reality show airs on. The real housewife and reality television housewife may have sent a text that is in violation of a confidentiality agreement within her contract.
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey'” began in 2009 and like other reality television shows participants are not advised to reveal events that occur on the show before the events are aired. Two weekends ago Jacqueline Laurita tweeted about a setup conducted by another member of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Teresa Giudice.
According to Laurita’s tweet, Giudice tried to put another cast member, Melissa Gorga, in a delicate situation by planning to have a former employee of Lookers Gentlemen’s Club in Elizabeth, New Jersey interact with Gorga at a fashion show. The interaction with the former Gentlemen’s Club employee is a segment from an upcoming episode of the fourth season of the reality television show which has not aired yet. The show just completed filming its third season.
An inside source who supposedly works for the cable channel said, “[Laurita] revealed a significant amount of a plot line [which] has not been aired yet.” Sources say Laurita may have broken another part of her agreement with Bravo by refusing to attend a reunion show.
A spokesperson for Bravo issued a statement that said no one has been fired from the show and all five cast members will appear in the fourth season. Laurita claims she is leaving the show on her own accord.
