Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
Real Housewives of New Jersey is a rare show in the Real Housewives franchise because the side characters are just as vital as the actual Housewives. As the ladies have said Kim DePaola aka Kim D is a “cockroach” that just hasn’t gone away. She probably never will if she continues to get the newly zen Teresa Giudice so riled up every single time she is mentioned- let alone when she actually appears. It is prime TV- although a lot of people are getting sick of the chronically recycled stunt.
Then there are other side characters that make the show better in a positive way. One of those is Teresa’s third daughter, Milania Giudice. She always manages to steal the show, say what everyone is thinking, and bless us with the best meme material. Obviously Milania is just a child, but Teresa recently revealed that she weighed in on the feud with Kim D.
If that does actually happen, how will that affect the rest of the cast? Will Danielle Staub remain a “Friend of the Housewives” or return to full-time status? New Jersey has never had more than five official Housewives in the cast, so it would be interesting to see who takes priority if either of those OG returns. The one thing that seems pretty solid is that the people want Margaret Josephs to return no matter what.
Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle andCaroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker– which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.
Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped and there are already rumors about next year’s cast. There is a lot of speculation that original cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzowill return to the show which would be very interesting considering their contentious relationships with Teresa Giudice. Plus fellow OG Danielle Staub is back on the scene these days so there is plenty of potential for drama.
Teresa was asked about the possibility of Jacqueline and Caroline coming back and she hurled some harsh insults their way. Now Jacqueline’s daughter (and Caroline’s niece) Ashlee Holmesis firing back.
Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.
Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.
