Things got heated during Friday’s filming of the Real Housewives of New Jersey finale.
In Touch has exclusively learned that Jacqueline Laurita — who caused production complications after refusing to show up for Melissa Gorga’s fashion show on Wednesday (when the cast was originally supposed to film the finale) — stormed off set after ten minutes of filming when confronted by Melissa and Teresa Giudice.

"Tensions were already running very high because Jacqueline had already been gossiping about the women behind their backs all season. Extra security had to be hired because Jacqueline was hoping to provoke Teresa into a physical altercation, which could have sent her back to prison because she is still on probation,” a source reveals.
“Teresa and Melissa were both very calm, but resolute with what needed to be done — call Jacqueline out for all the drama that she had created. After going through a litany of the misdeeds done by Jacqueline, she got up and left. She had no response to the accusations that were discussed by Teresa and Melissa. Jacqueline revealed her true colors, she is a total coward."

This was the first time the ladies were all together since their drama-infused trip to Vermont.
“Emotions are still running very high and Jacqueline has no friends or allies on the show. What will happen when they all get together and film for the reunion in a few months?" the source adds.
In Touch previously revealed Jacqueline’s future with the franchise is in jeopardy.
