‘RHONJ’ star Jacqueline Laurita answers 21 questions

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 7Tommy Garcia/Bravo

A few days ago, I had the chance to sit down with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita at Books and Greetings in Northvale, where she was signing copies of her new book Get It!: A Beauty, Style, and Wellness Guide to Getting Your “It” Together. In addition to getting the scoop on the season 7 of RHONJ, we also had a little bit of fun (who am I kidding — a lot of fun) playing our very first celebrity 21 Questions.* Watch below to learn some fun facts about the adorable and sweet Jacqueline, like her favorite spot to grab a drink in Jersey, to what she wore to her high school prom, to the one beauty product she cannot live without.

*Props to our sister publication Vogue and their delightful 73 Questions feature. We decided to pay homage to our New Jersey roots with a question for every County in the Garden State.
