Jacqueline Laurita’s gardening skills are nothing short of impressive.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

As she closes out her first year in Orange County, California, The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum took to Instagram on Thursday (May 30) to show off the latest update to her gorgeous abode. Jacqueline posted a video of the home’s outdoor space, where she had set up a row of wooded garden beds that contained various vegetables.

“We brought some of our indoor garden outside!” she captioned the Story, which was soundtracked by Prime Suspect’s “Planting Seeds.”

As shown in the video, the garden included everything from romaine lettuce and cucumbers to French “filet” beans and basil to San Marzano tomatoes. Some vegetables were still in the seeding stage while others were full on flowering.

Jacqueline Laurita leaves the Garden State

The update came five years after Jacqueline left the Garden State and headed to Las Vegas. She announced the move in a June 2019 Instagram, confirming she would be joined by her husband, Chris Laurita, and their sons, Christopher “CJ” Laurita and Nicholas Laurita.

“Good times ahead and new adventures!” she wrote in a video documenting the Nevada move. “I have my parents there, one of my brothers, my sister-in-law, my nephews, my cousins & their kids AND friends already there. Chris also has a brother there as well… I just need to convince my daughter [Ashlee Holmes] and her [now-ex] husband to move out there with my grandson and my life will be complete! They promised to come for Christmas at least!”

Jacqueline Laurita starts a new life in Orange County

The Lauritas relocated to Orange County in June 2023, as Chris expanded his company, Velocity Global Brand. She spoke about the move during a 2023 appearance on Teresa Giudice’s podcast series, Namaste B$tches, admitting she was not exactly thrilled to leave Sin City.

“I don’t even want to leave Vegas or my family. It sucks,” Jacqueline said. “But at least I’m going to a beautiful place… We’re going there because [Chris] just expanded his office [and] opened a new place in the OC.”

After announcing her California move, many fans wondered if Jacqueline would join The Real Housewives of Orange County. The mother of three told Teresa she got that question “all the time,” but had no plans to return to the small screen — unless it was for something short-term.

“I’m so done with reality TV like that,” she said, adding she would consider doing The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. “Could I handle a week being somewhere? I could handle the stress for a week of being on a show like that.”
