Real Housewives Of New Jersey is nothing without a good villain – and this season, unlikely candidate Jim Marchese stepped into that role. Jim has been polarizing since the first day he appeared on the show, and he’s never shied away from being outrageous. Even today, after the season wrapped, Jim doesn’t apologize!
The Jim readily admits that he can be “a douchebag” but he’s OK with that title if it comes with defending his wife Amber Marchese, his career, or his reputation. “I am unfiltered. Clearly.” Which Jim says is why so many of the Housewives found him “unlikeable” – something that also goes for viewers who have lobbed a full-scale attack against Jim on social media and other platforms. One Jim encourages, it seems, by always retaliating.
As a model Cynthia knows the importance of a good accessory, which is why she’s always been more than willing to be NeNe’s, until Kenya took Cynthia under her antebellum caftan and twirled her off into the sunset. And apparently that was all Porsha Williams‘ fault. I’m noticing a pattern here – everything in Cynthia’s life is someone else’s fault. She really has been hanging out with Krayonce too long!
Listed as “currently separated” Mario is seeking an “active” woman who “loves sports and working out.” And he makes it very clear he wants someone who is the opposite of his wine-ing Real Housewives Of New York star ex-wife. Mario says he wants someone who will,”Enjoy the simple things in life and not be pretentious and in need of impressing other people.”
Anyway, Kenya is all about redemption this season and that means moving forward with all the people who have done her wrong – Phaedra included! After last season’s traumatic reunion, Kenya said it really took a lot for her return to the show. And by a lot, I imagine one phone call from Bravo.
“I had to really weigh the options; is this worth it? I went through a terrible time after the reunion, and I had to just reevaluate the situation,” Kenya says. “I asked myself a lot of questions. I had a lot of questions and conversations with the production company, with Bravo, and we got to a really good place; and that’s why I’m back.”
“I see her all the time,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star reveals. “I drop the kids off at their house, we go to graduations together, soccer together – we’re always around each other. I really am at peace with it.”
Monyetta Shaw is on a show called Atlanta Exes but reveals: never say never, where her ex Ne-Yo is concerned! How would that work for her reality career? Can we say: Spinoff! And Kris Jenner may have found a new man, but is he with her for the right reasons?
Monyetta said that shortly after they gave birth to their second child, Ne-Yo admitted he wasn’t ready for the commitment of marriage, but time has changed his perspective. “He just wasn’t ready for monogamy,” she explained. “I’m a human being and I’m a woman. It hurts, but you can’t make a person feel a certain way and I’m okay with that and what I realize is it wasn’t my stuff. It was his stuff. It was his issues.”
Saying that participating in reality TV “very stressful” Jacqueline says she chose to have a less involved role this season – one that was originally supposed to involve her confronting her estranged sister-in-law Dina Manzo, so I’m not sure how that could construe a less stressful situation.
“I agreed to do it part-time. It’s been positive being away from the craziness of the show,” Jacqueline explains. I find this statement interesting because a large part of the craziness and vitriol of the show has directly revolved around Jacqueline – from Day 1. Too bad Jacqueline can’t take a break from her alternate reality.
