For SH readers asking about Jacqueline Laurita’s financial position…
From November 2011…
What is the Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita’s involvement in her husband, Chris Laurita’s, bankruptcy???
For those of you who wanna get straight info from the court documents…
Translation: Chris and Joe Laurita drained Signature Apparel as much as they possibly could and then transferred ownership to a new owner in exchange for a % of future sales.
Translation: Joe and Chris Laurita (and spouses) are still livin’ the life and the Federal Bankruptcy Trustee for this case is going after them for their personal assets… “piercing the corporate veil”… to satisfy any judgment (monies owed).
Could this be THE REAL reason why Jax excused herself from the RHONJ Reunion Show? Miss Andy was havin’ a field day grillin’ Tree with questions re Tree’s bankruptcy. Jax knew that either Tree or Miss Andy would have gone after her (possibly…) when the bankruptcy issue was being “discussed” with Tree…
NOTE: I don’t believe for one second the lame excuse that Don Caro gave for Jax not participating in the NJ reunion show… “Jax was too mentally and physically exhausted.” However, many, many viewers were NOT aware of Chris and Jax’ money problems… unless you read Chris Laurita’s page on SH (here)… and there was the very good chance that Jax’ financial info was going to be mentioned on the Reunion Show. Don Caro probably pulled one of those “big Manzo/Laurita meetings” and it was decided that the wrath of Miss Andy and possible lawsuits brought against Jax for not showing up per her Bravo contract were worth the risk. Don Caro does not like to be seen in an ugly light and Jax/Chris Laurita’s being sued by the Bankruptcy Trustee would reflect on Don Caro.
Don Caro got lots of stuff she’s trying to shove down people’s throats via her website… to buy (her Brown sauce), to ask (her advice!), to recommend (Lauren as a…cough, cough…makeup expert) and reference (her recipes). Oh, and let’s not forget her “BOYZ” black water crap!
So, the chance that Jax’ bankruptcy issue coming up and being broadcast to a national audience was not a chance they were willing to take. Unfortunately, Don Caro’s trying to cover up a little too late… like Danny Provenzano said when he escorted Danielle to the Brownstone, “A punk is a punk…. and da Manzo’s are punks.” Little did we know that he may have been on to something!
