Bravo is bringing back a “Real Housewives” personality who was canned from the reality franchise, and the reason might be seen as a commentary on the current state of television.
TMZ.com reports that the cable channel rehired Jacqueline Laurita for the show “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
The move, TMZ says, is an attempt to “supercharge” the show.
“The reason — it’s been kinda ho-hum this season with no real conflict,” TMZ reports. “Producers say when Laurita is on she’s great. They let her go because she was dealing with family issues at the time and she was so preoccupied she lost her edge.”
Bravo wasn’t commenting, but the report adds: “We’re told Laurita’s sister-in-law is pissed she’s returning.”
