Who would have ever thought that Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub would be friends after Teresa flipped that table in her face during the Season 1 finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey? Danielle got the boot from the show after Season 2 and no one heard a peep from her until she and Teresa were spotted doing yoga together after the last season wrapped.

Now Danielle is back (thank god) and Teresa is a big part of that. Danielle even described their friendship as “perfect” in recent interviews. Again, that is something that no one ever thought would happen.

Even though Real Housewives of New Jersey has been The Teresa Giudice Show for a long time, the real show this season has been all about the animosity between Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs. Even though they clearly cannot stand each other, they have to be somewhat grateful to be at the center of the season. Or at least that’s what I imagine. All publicity is good publicity- right? I feel like their girl Joan Rivers would agree with that sentiment.

The Siggy and Marge Show continued after the last RHONJ episode during Siggy’s Watch What Happens Live appearance. Even though Margaret hasn’t been in the clubhouse, Andy Cohen and the viewers pushed Siggy to dish all about the new girl so it really felt like she was there.

It seems we must face facts this season on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey: Siggy Flicker has decided this is her “moment” and she’s making sure everyone knows it, especially Margaret Josephs. But Margaret isn’t one to back off when Siggy huffs and puffs that she’ll pull her pigtails out! No, no, no. She came to PLAY, and I’m loving her for it. Margaret also shows us a peek into her wacky world of Claire’s Boutique inventory when she throws a launch party for her bag line, which Siggy and Dolores Catania refuse to attend. Call Siggy’s crab cakes salty, will they? Hmmph! She’ll be eating them alone from now on, then. In pigtails!

Last night began with the ladies at home after a drama-filled Boca vaycay. Melissa Gorga’s birthday cake was not able to make the trip home because – just in case anyone in the tri-state area hasn’t heard yet – Teresa Giudice threw that sh*t on the ground. (R.I.P. $1K cake!) Siggy is, by the way, still not over it – not by a long shot. The town of Boca Raton is very much over Siggy, though, I’d imagine.

Before we leap into tonight’s new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, returning cast member Danielle Staub has more than a few opinions to share on last week’s episode.

In her newest Bravo blog, Danielle starts off with, “Let me begin by saying that this is a pretty accurate portrayal of what it’s really like to be around Jersey girls. We are all very strong-minded women with equally strong personalities and opinions. Not one of us is a wallflower. We all speak our minds, even though at times the person we may be speaking to can be a little intimidating…”

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Let Them Eat Cake

Nobody puts Siggy Flicker in a corner, according to Siggy Flicker. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star takes particular offense to Margaret Josephs trying to shut her down, especially because it was Siggy who “brought her in.” Jeesh – we’re only weeks into RHONJ, and alliances are already crumbling under the ladies’ feet like rickety boardwalk planks! Siggy breaks down her feelings on most of the group – except Dolores Catania – turning on her in Boca, and why she cannot be silenced.

Siggy complains, “Less than 48 hours after introducing Margaret to our group, I am being told how I should feel and what I can’t say. Margaret can’t pass up an opportunity to add fuel to the fire and cause division among my friends.” This “fire” was started by Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice getting into a food fight, which resulted in Siggy’s $1,000 custom-ordered cake being tossed on to the sidewalk.

Melissa & Joe Gorga

If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.

The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy.

Despite her issues with Siggy Flicker lately, Teresa Giudice claims she still has nothing but love, love, love! for the self-proclaimed “most talented person in the world.” The Real Housewives Of New York star also regrets that Siggy and Dolores Catania didn’t take part in the flower ceremony Margaret Josephs arranged for the ladies to pay tribute to lost love ones. Whether they were excluded on purpose or not remains murky, however.

Teresa doesn’t think Siggy’s dramatics over the cake throwing incident were warranted, but she really got her drawers in a twist over Siggy calling Melissa Gorga and her “animals.”  She explains, “This episode started out with the aftermath of ‘Cake-Gate.’ I really wasn’t happy watching as Siggy called Melissa and I ‘animals.’ Just like Siggy thought us throwing the cake was in poor taste, I thought what she said about us was also in poor taste.”
