It's no secret that the revolving door over at Bravo's Real Housewives franchise has been spinning a little faster than usual lately (like, at warp speed).
Just weeks after the cable net confirmed that a massive bite had been taken out of its Big Apple cast, rumors started to swirl that the same ax had headed across the river and that heads—specifically those of Jacqueline Laurita and head hen Caroline Manzo—would soon be rolling right out of its New Jersey gang.
But not all publicity is good publicity, and Bravo has wasted no time in nipping this particular rumor in the bud.
"Bravo is not firing anyone from The Real Housewives of New Jersey," a Bravo spokesperson told E! News. "This is completely inaccurate from sources who are unreliable and making up rumors.
"All five cast members will be featured on season four. No decisions have been made about season five at this time. We are looking forward to the season three finale this Sunday at 10 p.m."
A denial and a plug—these guys are pros. Still, the decision over who stays and who goes may not be entirely up to them.
Just last week, Laurita took to Twitter to vent her increasing frustrations with life on the reality show, telling followers that she's "tired of the B.S." and feels duped into associating with "low life people."
"I didn't know this was what I signed up 4," she tweeted. "I have 2 rise above&move on."
Later, she added, "I can't be part of the charade anymore. It's unsettling. It's disturbing & against what I stand for. I'm a REAL housewife."
But whether she's a real Housewife remains to be seen.
