'RHONJ' Star Jacqueline Laurita

Massive Tax Debt ...


3/2/2013 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302-jacqueline-laurita-gettyThe Garden State is picking a catfight with "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Jacqueline Laurita -- claiming she needs to pay off a $340,000 tax bill ... OR ELSE.

The NJ Division of Taxation filed the tax lien against Jacqueline -- who has been a regular on the show since season 1 -- earlier this year for exactly $338,337.05.

The docs don't specify which year(s) Jacqueline allegedly racked up the debt, but if she doesn't pay up soon, they could go after her assets.

Jacqueline is not the only NJ housewife to botch her finances -- her two nemesis on the show, Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice, are both in the middle of a bankruptcy right now.

Hey Bravo, maybe an episode called "The Girls Pay Their Bills" is in order.

I agree, it is entertaining to your audience to ruin peoples' lives. That may be a diying TV gimmick, I do not know, nor do I care. Regardless, I know how things go on, and it is pathetic programming. This is one "reality" show that made a lot of people money, but maybe some producer(s) also left their own families in the dust. That is reality. Irony.

Programmers should do a reality show on what lengths producers will go to twist the truth, via production, without the general public's knowledge, to sell this drivel. Better than watching 15 shows on storage facilities.

The producers are the people that should be pounded. The public falls for this crap everytime it comes out. The producers ruin these peoples' lives, blame it on contracts, and laugh as they rake the cash in.

Some producers, though, ruin their own relationships by making such programming. Now that is a "reality" TV series.

I wondering what Jacqueline and her husband do with their money. Off to jail they will go, if they do not pay their taxes like the rest of us.

Have you ever noticed how many news we get to read about stars skip showing their taxes?! I am sick and tired of them being so irresponsible. I am saving up each penny to meet ends and they do not have to do this since their incomes allow living a trouble-free life. Lindsey Lohan thinks that it is ok not to pay off her mortgage. How can this be ok? She has to make payments. I am sorry but this is just making me mad. I am working my ass off and sometimes even apply for payday loans online while some TV stars do not pay for simple things

To Bad! And she and Caroline had the gall to poke fun and comment on Daniel Staub when Daniel was down and out. Don't feel sorry. Tell Chris, Jackies husband to take the stick out of his behind. Don't like there high and mighty.
