Real Housewife of New Jersey Jacqueline Laurita has been refreshingly honest about her plastic surgery. While some Houswives cop to some procedures, Jacqueline has revealed everything she has ever had done. Recently, she even shared a photo of herself, before her plastic surgery days.
42-year old Jacqueline Laurita first revealed her multiple trips under the knife on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Jacqueline, revealing the results of her tummy tuck and neck lift to Andy Cohen and also having breast implants and getting Botox injections.
At the time, she tweeted: “That’s right… I said Tummy tuck and Neck lift! Thank you @DrBrentMD!!!XOXO!”
This time around, Jacqueline is again sharing her plastic surgery, but this time by showing her before, rather than her after.
In the photo, Jacqueline is blonde and not recognizable from her current look.
Jacqueline captioned the throwback photo “Flashback!” and then went on to describe her old look:
“Me with lighter hair…. and bangs…. and before Botox and boob reduction.”
In answer to her fans asking questions about her procedures, she added: “I did my first Botox right before filming season one of RHONJ. Only on my forehead.”
Jacqueline’s costars have also been open about their plastic surgery. Although Kathy Wakile is considered the “down to earth” housewife, she has also revealed her plastic surgery procedures including getting lip injections and having a nose job after breaking it twice.
And of course the Real Housewives of every city are well documented for going under the knife and even having some procedures done while on camera, from nose jobs to breast implant removals to hosting Botox parties.
On the other side of the spectrum, and the country is former Real Housewife of Orange County Gretchen Rossi. Despite old photos revealing a very different looking Gretchen popping up over the years, Gretchen has yet to admit to plastic surgery, claiming youth is the reason for her look. However, many suspect that while Gretchen may be the only Housewife to have natural breasts, she has probably had a nose job and possibly chin and cheek implants as well. Despite being a younger housewife, Gretchen also looks like she gets Botox injections and possible fillers in her lips as well.
In addition to changing up her look, Jacqueline is apparently also changing up her residence. Recently, Jacqueline and her husband put their home on the market. The couple bought the home back in 2001 for $1.7 million and have listed it at $2.85. The house is set on two acres and filled with hand-painted Tuscan murals in the dining room and bathroom, a living room with a vaulted ceiling and custom woodwork, a wood-paneled library, a wine cellar, a heated four-car garage, custom closets.
The house may hold unhappy memories for the couple, as it was the setting for many episodes of RHONJ. Now that the couple is off the show, they may want to start making new memories for their appearances on possible spin off shows.
