Laurita, 36, allegedly turned to Kim Granatell "Kim G"- a woman who has been widely condemned by a number of Laurita's cast mates in prior episodes- on the night that the reunion show was filmed because she needed comforting.
"Jacqueline seemed so traumatized that night, so we sat on my couch, had a few shots of Cafe Patron and chatted 'til 3 a.m., Jacqueline telling me that she hated Teresa Giudice, and that I had been right about her all along," Kim G told Fox News' Tom Murro.
Laurita has not publicly addressed reports that she skipped the reunion show, and her recent Twitter posts actually suggest that she has been "happy" and even looking forward to attending the Bravo reunion show.
"I really love my life right now.I'm in a very happy place.Everythings falling in2 place.Loving family&plenty2focus on.Alls well up in here!" Laurita tweeted on July 30.
"I will tell you some of the things that I've been busy with at the reunion. I'm pulled in different directions but I stay very busy," she tweeted on July 23.
Laurita, who has appeared on the popular Bravo TV reality show since season one, has been embroiled in a vicious feud with Giudice, 39, and in season three and the cattiness almost prompted her to leave the show.
"Jacqueline is so sick of all the lies and the backstabbing that [she] wants out," one insider previously told Reality Weekly.
Her sister-in-law and co-star Caroline Manzo also considered leaving at one point due to her own problems involving Giudice.
"Caroline wants out too. She thought being on a reality show would be fun, but it's just been drama, lies, deception and scandal," the source explained.
