Jacqueline Laurita‘s husband has turned to Facebook marketplace to get rid of the couple’s personal items as they struggle to sell their New Jersey mansion.
Chris Laurita has listed at least 14 items, including a distressed leather sofa (originally priced at $27,000), a crystal chandelier for $5,000, a dining room table and a toy storage unit.
Chris also shared that he is willing to part ways with some movie memorabilia, including a signed “Godfather I” movie poster and a signed “Sopranos” picture. A “Donnie Brasco” plaque already sold for $300.
He is also selling a poker table, which “RHONJ” fans will recall was often featured on the Bravo reality series. “Needs a little TLC,” he wrote in the caption, adding that he was giving it away for $2,000, but the original price was “over $15k.”
The online flea market sale comes as Jacqueline and Chris have been trying to move out of their Franklin Lakes home for nearly five years.
According to NJ.com, they have had to cut the price down three times from $2.8 million to $1.95 million, and they are facing foreclosure proceedings.
Chris confirmed the Facebook marketplace sale to NJ.com and said it has “nothing to do” with foreclosure proceedings.
“Why can’t someone write something positive about a family pulling up their bootstraps and moving on to bigger and better opportunities?” he wrote in a message. “What we’re doing is a good thing and is best for our families future. We are looking forward to it.”
Jacqueline has not appeared as a full-time cast member of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” since Season 7. On the show, she said her son Nicholas’ autism has contributed to the couple’s financial strains.
