I’m over it. You’re over it. My neighbor, who doesn’t even watch The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, is over it. But Siggy Flicker is NOT OVER IT, people! Yes, we’re talking about Boca. And this week, Siggy decides to take her juvenile antics to a lower level of pre-K when she literally sticks her tongue out at Margaret Josephs to drive the point home. The point being…nanny nanny boo boo? Not to be outdone by the Most Talented Person On The Planet, Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice decide to scrap as well. Whether their drama is real or fake is still up for debate, but there’s no doubt that mutual resentment is buried deep in the basement of each woman’s respective McMansion.
At Margaret’s house, she’s returning from Vegas just in time to “wash the puss and the pits.” Marge Sr. is happy to hear Marge Jr.’s success in getting her shoe line licensed. She also got to steal some hotel slippers, so the trip was a big win. Margaret didn’t have time to by her husband, Joe, anything in Vegas though, so he’s grumpy. She thinks he’s a stage 5 clinger and needs him to back-that-sh*t-up when she walks in the door. She also needs Siggy to take several seats, especially after she hears about her continued cake drama at the purse party. “This is like high school,” says Marge. “I love it.”
These two have something going on between them every single episode. Not only that, but Margaret’s mother is just TV gold. I have no idea why they didn’t go for some two for one deal and cast Marge Sr. as a Housewife as well. Or at the very least she deserves a web series or something. Aside from talking about her mother’s antics, the newest NJ Housewife has a lot to say about being on the show.
It’s everybody’s yummiest weekend treat – an roundup of Instagram photos from our favorite attention-loving reality stars! Above Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund, who will soon be getting their own spinoff called Keeping It Real Estate, reveal they just co-listed a property today.
The Real Housewives Of New York star announced, “These 2 idiots have listed their apartment today. This was a design & bickering collaboration that has resulted in a 2 bedroom masterpiece.” Don’t worry – neither Bethenny nor Fredrik are are moving from their stunning homes, it’s a flipper upper.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers became very accustomed to a very stoic Teresa Giudice smiling her way through her problems over the years. This season, the fans have seen a more raw side of the OG cast member after the loss of her mother Antonia Gorga. If you didn’t tear up watching the Season 8 premiere, props to you because I could not handle all of the emotion from the Giudice/Gorga family during that opening segment.
Aside from being very open about the loss of her mother, Teresa has actually voiced her anger with currently imprisoned husband Joe Giudice. This is a far cry from the woman who refused to admit her home was in foreclosure, say the words “jail” or “prison,” and loved bragging about how much she was into her “Juicy Joe” even in the midst of very public legal issues.
On Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice spatting over the restaurant, Danielle said “I think it’s just family banter, to be honest with you. I think they’re comfortable with each other and I think they’re willing to say whatever it is that’s on their minds and that’s a good thing. And I wouldn’t want to be a waitress either!”
It’s official: Siggy Flicker’s sanity has left the building. It remains to be seen whether this circumstance will solidify her spot on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey long term (because, hey, we like our housewives messy!) or will get her booted off with nary a ruined cake as a parting gift. Until then, it’s all aboard the crazy train for us! Good thing we’re used to these kinds of barf-inducing rides. Dolores Catania also comes unhinged this week when Danielle Staub accuses her of trash-talking Teresa Giuidice behind her back. Thus the newest Housewives catchphrase – which I fully intend to use on someone special in the near future – is born: Welcome Back, Scumbag! It’s truly a greeting for every occasion.
We begin at Teresa’s house, where she’s making pork chops with her father while the kids tear the house apart. So, a standard day at the Giudice home. With Joe Giudice in prison, Teresa is essentially a single mom, but at least she has her father moved in to comfort her. The family is still reeling from the loss of Tre’s mom, though, in addition to Joe being locked up.
I’m just gonna come right out and say it: Margaret Josephs was a great casting choice for The Real Housewives Of New Jersey this year. She’s bringing the crazy pigtails, the psychedelic purse parties, and the toe-to-toe sparring with Siggy Flickerwho has become a legend in her own mind. Margaret took her her blog last week to call Siggy and Dolores Catania out on their wacko slumber party, clear up her side of the Boca beach ceremony, and further align herself with Teresa Guidice’s team.
Margaret begins by gushing about her party. Despite her house being under construction and her ovens not working, it turned out to be a good time! She was disappointed that Siggy and Dolores decided not to attend, even though she’d extended invites to the entire group. “I couldn’t wait to invite the Boca babes! I had such a good time with them and was wanting more. That’s not me being a wannabe, that’s just me being me. (Oh, and Siggy: I don’t need to go out of my way to be nice to anyone, it comes naturally—as natural as my boobs, thank you very much! Also, my being nice to someone doesn’t detract from how I feel about anyone else. I can compartmentalize much better than most and don’t need to dull someone’s sparkle to shine.)”
According to Dolores, things with Danielle got so atrocious she had to contact the authorities for help. Danielle has been down that road on Bravo before, so I guess she never learns – or changes! Or as Dolores describes, “A leopard doesn’t change its spots. Ever.”
