Despite new rumors nearly daily that certain stars from Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey are being fired from the series – including one from earlier today that had Jacqueline Laurita and sister-in-law Caroline Manzo getting the boot for season five – the network has officially decided to speak out on the issue.
“Bravo is not firing anyone from The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement issued to EW. “This is completely inaccurate information from sources who are unreliable and making up rumors. All five cast members will be featured on season 4. No decisions have been made about season 5 at this time. We are looking forward to the season 3 finale this Sunday at 10 p.m.”
Granted, this statement – which insists no one has been “fired” – doesn’t really hold up if one of the cast members quits, as Jacqueline threatened to do on Twitter over the weekend.
