Jacqueline Laurita is continuing to make production on The Real Housewives of New Jersey a living nightmare.
In Touch learned earlier this week the Bravolebrity would be fired from the franchise if she failed to show up at her co-star Melissa Gorga's fashion show and film with the cast for the finale — but now we have exclusively learned the threat wasn't enough to scare her into showing up for Wednesday night's event!

Teresa Giudice proudly sat next to her brother, Joe Gorga, at her sister-in-law's show, but Jacqueline refused to film with the cast.
"Teresa hasn't missed any filming with the cast, and has been on time the entire season," a source reveals.

Producers were "absolutely furious Jacqueline refused to show up for the fashion show because it was mandatory that everyone be there," the source continues. "Jacqueline didn't let anyone know she wasn't coming until the last possible minute. There was absolutely no reason why she shouldn't have been there."

Jacqueline isn't off the hook as filming has now been extended until Monday, which will be the last day. Bravo wants all of the women together before the reunion films later this year, which would be the first time since Jacqueline and Robyn Levy would be together since the disastrous trip to Vermont.
The cast trip to Vermont was indeed "explosive, and viewers are going to be stunned at what went down. It wasn't as shocking as Teresa infamously flipping the table, but ranks up there as very, very memorable. The season started out rather slow and boring, but really picked up towards the end," the insider previously confirmed.
"Jacqueline is playing hardball, but is being told by Bravo lawyers she has to do this. It's in her contract," a production source reveals.

With filming extended because of Jacqueline's absence on Wednesday night, the ladies are "just over all of the drama with Jacqueline. It's so unprofessional of Jacqueline to just bail on required commitments. No one else does that but Jacqueline. Jacqueline is going to be facing off with some very angry ladies," the insider added.
Her future with RHONJ is indeed in jeopardy.
