Jacqueline Laurita was the only housewife who came to Danielle Staub's defense during the fiery June 16 Real Housewives of New Jersey finale showdown.
Now, Laurita - who famously betrayed her sisters-in-laws Dina and Caroline Manzo by claiming that Dina uncovered the book about Staub's crime-ridden past - tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands today) she and Staub no longer speak. (On Tuesday, federal court records surfaced detailing Staub's deep involvement in a kidnapping plot, a $24,000 drug deal and an "escort service" - all of which she denies.)
"I am not friends with Danielle," Laurita emphatically tells Us Weekly.
Adds the mother-of-three (who welcomed a boy, Nicholas, June 11): "She has never seen the baby, nor will I ever show her. I learned my family was right about her all along."
