After a series of tweets which hint her departure from 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey', a source confirms, 'Jacqueline definitely quit.'
Another "Real Housewives" spin-off is rocked with rumor of departing cast member. After it was recently reported that "The Real Housewives of New York City" will lose four ladies, Jacqueline Laurita is now said leaving "The Real Housewives of New Jersey".
"Jacqueline definitely quit," a source tells PEOPLE, confirming the speculation which was sparked by Laurita's own tweets. "She had to walk away for her sanity," the source added as the 41-year-old hinted that the tension has been running high on the show.
On Wednesday, September 28, Laurita tweeted that she did not even want to attend the season 3 reunion where her co-star Teresa Giudice reportedly invited a male stripper in an attempt to expose Melissa Gorga's past as a stripper. In a following tweet, she seemingly addressed this drama, "Someone (not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad."
However, Giudice, whose husband Joe Giudice has been reported of having an affair with a mystery brunette, claimed that she did want a fight, writing on her own Twitter, "I don't even wanna go there b/c I don't fight on twitter not w/ fans, not haters, not w/ mean RTs & def not w/ a friend (ahem) or my family!"
Affirming her point, Laurita later wrote, "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." She went on reasoning, "I'd like to only focus on positive things now please. I threw the trash out.I'm cleaning now and reorganizing.Starting fresh and new."
Representatives for Bravo have not released any comment regarding Laurita's exit.
