Melissa Gorga Denies Meeting With Danielle Staub Before Filming; Says Siggy Flicker Is Different Than She Was Last Year

In comparison to seasons past, this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been a breeze for Melissa Gorga. She has just enough drama to get screen time, but she’s really not in the thick of it. Plus she gets to promote her store Envy at every possible second. She really is in the best spot out of all the Jersey ladies at this point.

This is a stark contrast from the woman who joined the show in the middle of a feud with Teresa Giudice after Danielle Staub infamously brought up the family drama during the Season 2 reunion. Apparently Danielle and Melissa were talking about their (former) shared enemy years ago, but apparently they only met this season.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: A Retreat To Remember

We knew it would happen. Siggy Flicker threatened to test out her “empowerment and healing” techniques on innocent victims friends and family before she unleashed it on the paying public – and she did just that to The Real Housewives Of New Jersey this week. It was, as expected, a splendid sh*t show. And maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I’ll openly admit I loved every messy minute of it!

I still can’t help thinking this season’s cast has stepped it up a notch. Maybe it’s been Siggy losing her effing mind (which, though bizarre and troubling, has been strangely entertaining!), or perhaps it’s the reintroduction of wild card Danielle Staub, who Dolores Catania sees as a snake in the grass. In any case, we’re lucky that cameras finally stepped back from the heaviness of Teresa Giuidice’s family drama this week, instead entrapping gathering the women together for a forced getaway – always a solid gold Housewives move. Even though the trip is to Siggy’s retreat, at least Margaret Josephs is there to provide comic relief! Plus, Melissa Gorga brought three Hail Mary’s in her pocket just in case Satan caused confusion.

Margaret Josephs Thinks Siggy Flicker's Slumber Party With Dolores Catania Was Ridiculous; Calls Siggy

No one has adjust so easily to becoming a Real Housewife the way Margaret Josephs has on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Right off the bat she was talking about “pot puss,” getting with her husband Joe Benigno while she was married to someone else, and she opens up more and more with each episode. So of course she has a lot of colorful things to say in response to each episode.

Your favorite reality stars were out and about this week and of course they documented it all for social media.

Shockingly, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador posted a photo with soon-to-be-ex David Beador and their daughter after they announced their intent to divorce. Stassi Schroeder shared a picture from her trip to Paris. Kelly Dodd hung out with Chef Ben Robinson. Luann de Lesseps rocked braids and hung out with RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon for a mirror selfie. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer held her own in Washington, DC.

Danielle Staub Was Initially Jealous Of Margaret Josephs Becoming A Full Time Cast Member; Says Her Kids Have “PTSD” From Her First Two Seasons On RHONJ

 As much as I hoped it would happen, I never actually thought I would see the day when Danielle Staub is back as a cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. What a time to be alive. If anyone was meant to be a reality TV star, it was Danielle Staub.

That’s why it’s so upsetting (and unjust) that Danielle was not asked to be a full-time cast member for her big return to RHONJ. She is at every group event. She knows how to stir the pot. Danielle is doing the most and getting the least. What is going on?

Margaret Josephs Says Siggy Flicker “Has Two Speeds: Hate & Hater”; Defends Her Pigtails

Even though Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been airing for a month, it feels like Margaret Josephs is an official member of the Bravo family now that she has appeared on Watch What Happens Live. It really is a rite of passage for the Bravolebrities.

Surprisingly enough, the interview wasn’t over-saturated with Siggy Flicker questions. The main topic of conversation was actually Margaret’s infamous pigtails.

If you think about it, the Real Housewives franchise is a lot like Survivor. Obviously, the Housewives are a lot more glamorous, but it is definitely difficult sticking around in the tribe on both shows.

Danielle Staub discussed Real Housewives of New Jersey in relation to this season of Survivor in a recent panel.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giacinto Gorga broke my heart yet again when he and Teresa Giudice shared more tears over the loss of her mother, Antonia. While Teresa took her family to Puerto Rico, Joe and Melissa Gorga stayed home with theirs to attempt disciplining their emerging tween. Hormones weren’t just affecting the young, as we saw when Siggy Flicker dragged cameras to her doctor appointment to discuss the finer points of hormone replacement therapy. And Dolores Catania faced off with Margaret Josephs, proving her undying delusional loyalty to Siggy by justifying her wack-job behavior at the Gorga’s tasting party!

As Teresa packs for Puerto Rico, she tells Milania that they’ll email Joe Giudice in prison while they’re gone. Without Joe, Tre is glad she has her father to lean on. “He is my rock right now,” she admits. Meanwhile, Dolores is joining Siggy at the doctor’s office to discuss hormone treatments. In her butt. Siggy doesn’t want to be known as “Soggy” anymore, and is hoping getting her hormones balanced out will help shed her new, obnoxious image. Well, that and not sticking your tongue out at other middle-aged women, maybe? But hey – it’s a start.
