The Real Housewives of New Jersey is about to wrap up filming of its seventh season but it sounds like the feud between the ladies isn’t getting any better. As reported previously, there’s a huge conflict between Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita which stemmed from the Vermont trip. The drama escalated when both women showed up at Dolores Catania’s housewarming party but pretty much hit the fan in the season 7 finale.

According to In Touch,  Jacqueline stormed off the 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 revealed to In Touch.

“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,” the insider added.

The season 7 finale, which was filmed Friday, reportedly marked the first time the ladies were all together since the disastrous Vermon trip. “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 said.

If rumors were to be believed, season 7 is turning out to be quite far from how Teresa first described the upcoming season. “It’s gonna touch your heart… You have a group of women that come together and lift each other up and are there for each other… That’s what we should do. We should lift each other up instead of knocking each other down,”  Teresa told Extra in February.

RHONJ season 7 is expected to premiere on Bravo early this summer.
