Last night Real Housewives Of New Jersey lost one of its greatest assets when Joe Giudice left for prison. Just think – all it took for the Gorgadices to mend their family feud was for Juicy to get incarcerated!
The episode begins counting down the days before Joe goes “away” for 41 months. No one feels it as deeply as Teresa Giudice, who tries to make each moment count with special activities for the girls to bond with their dad. First is a little Magnolia Bakery plug to decorate cupcakes for the birthdays Joe will miss while locked up. Also, there was glitter and we know Teresa has never been able to turn her back on an errant piece of glitter.
I really live for it every time Kim DePaola aka the notorious Kim D shows up on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She is always up to no good and she is a shameless shit stirrer, but she really makes good TV. I would hate to deal with her in real life, but she never fails to entertain me.
I always look forward to a Kim D appearance. I bet other people feel the same way, so I wouldn’t be shocked if Kim D’s appearances increased the ratings for Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s the ideal cameo appearance. I love how we aren’t forced to get to know her as a main cast member, but she just shows up for the gossip and drama. That is really all I want from Kim D and she always delivers.
It’s so crazy to think that Caroline Manzo – the lady who is famous for being all about her family – is actually living in an empty nest, but it is true. None of her three children live at home anymore and her daughter Lauren Manzo is expecting a baby of her own. So it makes sense for the soon-to-be grandma to revamp her house to match her new life.
The Manzo family matriarch has been giving her home a makeover to fit in with its new empty nest status and her impending life as a grandmother. Caroline opened up about her vision to change up the house.
Siggy Flicker is always crying on Real Housewives of New Jersey. It doesn’t seem like anyone has done anything against Siggy, yet she is always overwhelmed by other people’s drama for some reason. Honestly, I always felt like she was just hyping up her persona as a “relationship expert,” but Siggy insists that there’s more to her seemingly constant cry fest.
Siggy is opening up about her life after the show has stopped filming instead of during. It really doesn’t seem like she shares much of her personal life on the show itself, which throws me off, but at least she is explaining her flood of tears.
I’m glad Jacqueline Laurita is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s a bit of a loose cannon and just lays it all out there, giving zero effs about holding back. She used to be an amazing Tipsy Tweeter but nowadays we’ll have to settle for her bitchy blogging instead. After last night’s episode Jacqueline has plenty to say, especially where Melissa Gorga is concerned. Get your popcorn and pinot because it’s a long one.
She shared, “After seeing that episode, I realized I was right about the feelings of doubt I was having about Teresa and Melissa. They were clearly not my friends before we ever got to Vermont.” Adding, “I was really upset when Teresa and Melissa brought up Strippergate to me and tried to turn it around on me. In fact, I was blown away. They both know the truth. I thought it was dirty that they teamed up to do that to me. I’m certainly not proud of the way I acted at dinner.”
Siggy Flicker may be Real Housewives Of New Jersey‘s resident (self-appointed) relationship expert, but I’m questioning her sanity and her advice. I mean for all this tawk about soldiers, she’s sure turned into one of Jacqueline Laurita‘s right quick! Jacqueline’s bite is just as scary as her bark, so I get it.
As Dolores Catania warns, Siggy better stop throwing salami and provolone into the pen because when she runs out the Jacqocerous is going to get very angry and chomp her hand.
Honestly, Dolores is far more capable as a relationship expert when it comes to the chaos of Jersey than Siggy.
