Forget about settling old scores or supporting her pals — sources tell Star that Jacqueline Laurita’s bone-dry bank account is the real reason she’s back on The Real Housewives of New Jersey!

“When Dina Manzo refused to film with Jacqueline, it basically got her fired,” a Bravo source dishes. “But the Lauritas lived on that income, and now they’re broke. Dina took money away from Jacqueline’s autistic son.”

The source adds that Dina knows a fight is inevitable: “She’s freaking out about Jacqueline coming back.”
