Jacqueline Laurita Is Selling Her New Jersey Panty-Dropping Palace for $2.85 Million

If you’ve got $3 million extra bills just lying around, you can own a piece of trashy reality TV history.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline Laurita and her hubby Chris are unloading their Franklin Lakes McMansion for $2.85 million.

And CB! can take you inside.

After 12 years under the roof, the couple decided it’s time to say goodbye to their famous family nest where RHONJ fanatics saw Jacqueline cook, clean and get into knock out, drag out arguments with her daughter Ashlee Holmes.

And with bankruptcy and foreclosure rumors swirling over the years, the Lauritas aren’t shy about name-dropping their celeb status if that means unloading the manse quickly: “First time offered for sale by the original owners as seen on the TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” reads the listing.

(The $1 million profit -- they bought the digs in 2002 for $1.72M -- would also come in handy.)

So, just like the hair in NJ, this not-so-humble abode is B-I-G.

The 6-bedroom, 6.5-bath spread is everything you’d expect from a Garden State spread that borders on tasteful to down-right tacky.

The custom-made 5,600 square foot manor home is made entirely out of granite, stucco and limestone (and apparently, gaudy tapestries, chandeliers and draperies, too.) And because everything comes in twos in this pad, you’ll find a 2-story entry foyer, 2-story great room, and all on 2 acres of land.

The massive dining room is adorned with hand-painted frescoes, a library with custom woodwork and moldings, fireplace, and a swanky Salerno kitchen with commercial range, wine fridge, walk-in pantry, and sizable breakfast area.

Upstairs, the over-the-top antique French theme continues in the master suite with not 1, but 2 custom closets (which have been built in every bedroom, of course), gym, play room, wine cellar, card room, and office all in the basement.

Go inside the Lauritas home in the CB! gallery above.

    Wow, you "authors" on this site really love that whole 'panty-dropping palace' line - you use it a few times every day. It's really old.
