Even though there has been some recent chatter about Caroline Manzo returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn’t look that is happening- at least as of this moment. I would love to see her back in the fold going at it with her foes, but she just seems so much happier these days since she has nothing to do with this drama.
Caroline and her husband Al Manzo went on a romantic trip to London and Paris. That sounds a lot better than arguing with people at a Posche Fashion show or an opening for a faux restaurant.
With the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of New York on its way, expect more photos from the show’s stars on social media, just in time to get us all hyped up.
Tinsley Mortimer shared a photo with (most of) the cast by the water. Ramona Singer celebrated a friend’s bachelorette party. Dorinda Medley posted a selfie for her followers to enjoy. Sonja Morgan supported Luann de Lesseps’ healthy lifestyle change at a holistic health center. Is it April 4 yet? I need the Season 10 premiere and I need it now. Thankfully the stars are all posting on Instagram to satiate my need for RHONYcontent.
So it seems like she is still cool with Andy and the Bravo network, but what about the Beverly Hills cast? And that is the obstacle Brandi needs to overcome if she does want to reclaim her diamond. Andy is on board with Brandi’s return, but there’s something she needs to accomplish for that to happen.
There are few things better than a Real Housewives crossover. It’s always interesting to have more than one Real Housewife in the same room, but it’s even more exciting to have cast members from different shows in one place. These moments make for the best Instagram posts.
As loyal as I am (and have always been) to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I cannot help wondering where the show goes from here. Season 6 (with those twins and Amber Marchese) was the worst ever. Then they took a break in filming Season 7 since there’s no way they could have done a season of this show while Teresa Giudicewas in prison. Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga made up after years of feuding during that season and turned their one-liners against Jacqueline Laurita. Other than that, the season was just OK. I was expecting so much more after waiting forever and a half for it, but I obviously watched every single episode (many times over).
Jacqueline was out for Season 8 and we watched Siggy Flickerand Margaret Josephs go at it for most of the season. Conversely, Teresa experienced her first season where she was on good terms with every cast member- including her former enemy Danielle Staub. With Siggy off the show, we are only left with some second-rate tension between Dolores Catania and “Friends of the Housewives” Danielle to sustain us. Is this the beginning of the end?
There are two starkly different ways to view Kim DePaola’s role on Real Housewives of New Jersey: she is the gift that keeps on giving or the curse that keeps on cursing. Kim always swoops in with some drama whenever the season gets boring. Going up against Kim D, guarantees that the audience is on your side. As annoying as it has to be to fight against her, the Housewives who do, ultimately win. They get the support of the audience and some catchy insults to inspire memes.
Could you imagine if Kim was actually a more integral part of the season- instead of serving as the scapegoat for problems and the pot stirrer that livens up a dull season? What if Kim D was actually invited to one of the cast trips? They already storm out of every restaurant before the food even arrives. They wouldn’t be able to sit down at the table if Km was there.
The last time we saw Kathy Wakile on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice referred to her as a “cancer” that she needed to cut out. Since Real Housewives of New Jersey is essentially The Teresa Giudice show, it’s not surprising that Kathy is no longer a cast member.
What is surprising is that Kathy didn’t mention Teresa or Melissa Gorga (by name) in a recent interview about time as a Real Housewife. Most likely that was something the interviewers agreed upon beforehand because if I ever got a chance to talk to Kathy, those two would be the first people that I mentioned to her. She was at odds with her cousin Teresa the entire time she was on the show and Melissa shifted from #TeamKathy to #TeamTeresa, so I would love to know what she really thinks about her relatives.
