I think I am going to write a book on exercise and weight loss. I know what you are thinking. You’re thinking, “Tamara, you sit your fatass on the couch and drink and watch TV and write poorly written recaps and posts all day everyday. You are like the opposite of someone who should be writing a diet book!” And you are right, except apparently none of that matters. Because Jacqueline Laurita co-wrote a book on “Health and Beauty” proving that you can write a book about anything you want. My sequel will be How To Keep A Tidy House, and then maybe something about how to have long and healthy relationships. Because seriously, I thought Jac had done all the stupid things. But apparently, she has a few left to do. Despite her apparent dislike of exercise on the show, and her full body tuck she got during one season, she still claims she was into yoga before Teresa Giudice and that she encouraged her to try it. She says it was not until Teresa “went away” that she actually found the time.
Page Six went to her book signing and asked her how she felt about not being on the show anymore and she told them she was glad to be on the outside of all of that drama.
She explained her exit this way:
“They had given me a start date. A couple days later they expressed concern that I wasn’t getting along with a few of the girls and they were like, ‘How’s this going to look authentic if you don’t want to be hanging out with each other? They wanted me to come on and start filming part-time to see how the storyline unfolded and then maybe would make me full-time. They weren’t guaranteeing full-time, so for me to film all season long under all that stress and drama to not have a guaranteed full-time [spot] was not worth it for me, so I said no.”
That actually does make sense. I am not sure if that is how things actually went down, but it does make sense. Jac says she is still friends with Dolores and Siggy and feels badly for them as they were both given some bad edits this season. It appears that the other ganged up on Dolores and Siggy for supporting Kim D.’s fashion show on the upcoming season.
Jac is currently spending her time spreading “autism awareness” while leaving her child in the care of others. And being a grandmother. She missed a great trip to Milan.
And the opportunity to make some really poor fashion choices in a city renowned for fashion.
