Photo of Jacqueline Laurita's 'RHONJ' return scene with Kathy Wakile released?

Fans of Jacqueline Laurita may already be able to see a glimpse of what one of her "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" return scenes will look like. As reported All About The Real Housewives on Friday, August 8, Rosie Pierri posted a photo that may have been taken during during filming of a group dinner that she had with her sister Kathy Wakile, Kathy's husband Richard Wakile, new housewife Nicole Napolitano, Nicole's boyfriend Bobby, Jacqueline, and Jacqueline's husband Chris Laurita.

Rosie tweeted the photo of the dinner, which was held at Kathy's house, a few days ago. While some assumed that the photo was taken recently, Jacqueline replied that it was actually taken back in March. Rosie replied that she posted the photo because she loves to reminisce through old photos.

On Friday, E! News reported that Jacqueline, who left the show as a starring housewife after season five, will actually be returning later on this season six. According to a source, Jacqueline still has a close relationship with Kathy, who is currently a recurring housewife, so Jacqueline's scenes that'll air will mostly be with Kathy.

Season six started filming in December and wrapped up in early April. This means that the photo of Jacqueline having dinner at Kathy's house was taken during the filming period. Perhaps there was a Bravo camera crew that was filming the dinner and it'll be one of the scenes that'll be shown later on this season? Rosie all of a sudden posting the old photo could have also been her way of generating buzz for Jacqueline's return.

Prior to the season six premiere of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Jacqueline's sister-in-law Dina Manzo made clear that she only came back to the show after being away for several seasons because she knew that Jacqueline, as well as sister Caroline Manzo, were no longer on the show. Dina even said that she would never do a reality TV show with family ever again.

It's unclear if, and if so when, Dina Manzo knew that Jacqueline Laurita filmed some scenes with Kathy Wakile for the current season. The big question likely on many people's minds now is whether Dina will remain on the show if producers decide to keep Jacqueline around.
