This has not been an easy season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey for Jacqueline Laurita and, by the looks of things, she might not have a friend left among the cast by the time next week's season finale is over.
After her blowout battles with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga earlier this season during that disastrous Vermont trip, she's gone ahead and pushed away another ally. This time, it's Dolores Catania. And the reason is so dumb, we can't believe it's actually an issue.
In the final moments of tonight's new episode, while driving with Siggy Flicker to Melissa's fashion show, Dolores revealed that she'd gotten into an argument off-camera with Jacqueline over the innocuous phone call Dolores made to her sick friend during the Ladies' Night at her gym. Dolores said she simply wanted to see if Jacqueline was feeling well (she'd lost her voice and wasn't doing too hot), leaving her a voice mail to let her know she was thinking about her. But according to Dolores, Jacqueline saw it as an attempt to set her up and make her look bad for not showing up to the event. So, apparently Jacqueline threatened Dolores and said she was going to tell people she didn't show up because she was left off the flyer.
Like we said, dumb.
Dolores wasn't having any of it.
"'F--k you,' I said, actually," she told Siggy. "I text her, 'Answer the phone so I can say this to your face.'"
"What is really going on with Jacqueline?" Siggy wondered, echoing what many viewers have probably been wondering this season as well.
Will anyone in the cast even be speaking to Jacqueline by the time the reunion rolls around? Only time will tell.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
