Teresa Giudice Says She Gets Deep In New Book “Standing Strong” – Wants To Write Fictional Novels Next!

Even though The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is on a break this week, we can still live vicariously through their delusions and misadventures in real time! At a recent Long Island book signing for her latest memoir, Standing Strong, Teresa Giudice shared why her ghost writer’s writing has gotten a little more raw lately, how her family is doing, and what advice she has for other women out there who are going through “hard times.”

Teresa also has big plans for the future: a career as a novelist. Yup. It’s happening. The center cannot hold. Things fall apart. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…(Is this the first sign of apocalypse? Or was that when Tamra Judge found Jesus?) In any case, Teresa has plans of not doing certain things in the future as well – like signing anything Joe Giudice asks her to – ever.

Margaret Josephs Thinks Danielle Staub Should Have Been A Full Time Housewife & Was Scared To Meet Kim D

There is no doubt that Margaret Josephs is a major factor on Real Housewives of New Jersey and it’s only her first season. She’s been feuding with Siggy Flicker since episode 1, her mother Marge Sr. is hysterical, and she even has a signature hairstyle. Meanwhile, some other cast members aren’t doing much aside from plugging their own businesses.

Love her or hate her, Margaret is definitely keeping things interesting on RHONJ. She is not at all shy when it comes to sharing her opinion.

Siggy Flicker Discusses What Wasn’t Shown On RHONJ, Jacqueline Laurita Leaving The Show, & Why Teresa Giudice Is The Number One Housewife In History

There’s no doubt that Real Housewives of New Jersey has centered around Teresa Giudice and her family for most of its run. While the Giudices bring the most compelling moments to Season 8, this season’s arguing is focused on Siggy Flicker. Almost every conversation leads back to Siggy and she hasn’t been showed in the most favorable light.

Siggy opened up about what wasn’t shown that led to her explosive reactions, Jacqueline Laurita leaving the show, and what makes Teresa such a great Housewife.

Instagram Roundup: Porsha Williams, Terra Jole, Dorinda Medley, Rasheed Frost, & More

Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.

Danielle Staub Addresses Dolores Catania’s Drug Accusations, Siggy Flicker’s Hormone Pellets, & Love For Margaret Josephs

Like carbon monoxide, Danielle Staub is the silent killer of this season’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey. She might not be a full time Housewife, and she might not be screaming in anyone’s face (yet), but she is certainly here to play. In her blog, Danielle addresses each of her cast mates, sharing her reaction to their behavior thus far on the series, and specifically who might be lying – cough, cough, Dolores Catania.

First, Danielle praises Teresa Giudice’s connection with her family, especially with her dad in the wake of his mourning. “It’s sweet seeing the connection you and your dad have. You are so good with him, Teresa. Honestly, it’s heartbreaking to hear his pain. Although you are heartbroken as well, you remain so empathetic to your dad while going through your own emotions. I personally think you’re doing an amazing job!”

Melissa Gorga Denies Meeting With Danielle Staub Before Filming; Says Siggy Flicker Is Different Than She Was Last Year

In comparison to seasons past, this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been a breeze for Melissa Gorga. She has just enough drama to get screen time, but she’s really not in the thick of it. Plus she gets to promote her store Envy at every possible second. She really is in the best spot out of all the Jersey ladies at this point.

This is a stark contrast from the woman who joined the show in the middle of a feud with Teresa Giudice after Danielle Staub infamously brought up the family drama during the Season 2 reunion. Apparently Danielle and Melissa were talking about their (former) shared enemy years ago, but apparently they only met this season.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: A Retreat To Remember

We knew it would happen. Siggy Flicker threatened to test out her “empowerment and healing” techniques on innocent victims friends and family before she unleashed it on the paying public – and she did just that to The Real Housewives Of New Jersey this week. It was, as expected, a splendid sh*t show. And maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I’ll openly admit I loved every messy minute of it!

I still can’t help thinking this season’s cast has stepped it up a notch. Maybe it’s been Siggy losing her effing mind (which, though bizarre and troubling, has been strangely entertaining!), or perhaps it’s the reintroduction of wild card Danielle Staub, who Dolores Catania sees as a snake in the grass. In any case, we’re lucky that cameras finally stepped back from the heaviness of Teresa Giuidice’s family drama this week, instead entrapping gathering the women together for a forced getaway – always a solid gold Housewives move. Even though the trip is to Siggy’s retreat, at least Margaret Josephs is there to provide comic relief! Plus, Melissa Gorga brought three Hail Mary’s in her pocket just in case Satan caused confusion.

Margaret Josephs Thinks Siggy Flicker's Slumber Party With Dolores Catania Was Ridiculous; Calls Siggy

No one has adjust so easily to becoming a Real Housewife the way Margaret Josephs has on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Right off the bat she was talking about “pot puss,” getting with her husband Joe Benigno while she was married to someone else, and she opens up more and more with each episode. So of course she has a lot of colorful things to say in response to each episode.
