Welcome to the third season of Real Housewives of New Jersey! This season – whew – it looks like we’re in for a wild one! While the Real Housewives of New York may have needed to be ‘re-edited’ for more drama – New Jersey probably needed to be re-edited for less!
Teresa Giudice is ba-ack: angrier, crazier, bronzer, bossier, and apparently less broke because “mama is bringin’ home the bacon!” Caroline Manzo is worried about her adult children leaving the nest (wasn’t that the same issue she had last season?), Jacqueline Laurita is still dealing with good old Ashley, and we are introduced to
Teresa’s maybe crazier relatives new housewives Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile.
The 90 minute premiere episode was chock full of crazy as it opens with a Christening party for new housewife Melissa’s son, Giuseppe. It has all the attributes of a classic NJ Housewife Christening party: giant ice sculptures, an open bar, smarmy guidos with open shirts and gold chains, an oil painting of the baby, a lavish sit-down dinner, a knock down, drag out fight… Oh! Wait a second – maybe most Christenings don’t involve full-on fistfights. Well, Melissa had to one-up Teresa’s party from last year! See, Melissa is Teresa’s sister-in-law and is married to Teresa’s brother who is also named Joe, but is not Juicy. Teresa and Melissa are “not exactly best friends,” in fact they are pretty much enemies. As it was well documented that Teresa threatened to quit the show if Melissa was included, but then she realized mama needs that paycheck!
