Real Housewives of New Jersey

Jill Zarin

As much as I am entertained by pretty much everything I watch on Bravo, I can’t help being even more intrigued by what happens behind the scenes to make my favorite reality shows happen. I want to know if Housewives actually do “amicably part ways” with the network or if that is just a go-to line, like I suspect.

Even though I watch Bravo whenever possible, I still can’t get enough content and I want to know more about how it all works.

There are very few things that I love more than a Real Housewives crossover. There is just something about Housewives from different cities hanging out in real life that just blows my mind and warms my heart. Case in point: Teresa Giudice, Brandi Glanville, and Kenya Moore are all acting on the Vagina Monologues together.

Wait. What? I would give anything to see these three doing a dramatic reading. If only this was happening in a city near me. New Jersey meets Beverly Hills meets Atlanta plus all of that ongoing tension with Brandi and Kenya. Apparently Teresa had no idea about the issues between Brandi and Kenya, but now she’s determined to end the feud. Good luck with that one.

Melissa-Gorga-Joe-Gorga-St-Barths

Did you even go on vacation if you don’t document the entire trip on social media? Apparently not – especially these days.With that said, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has been posting a lot about her St. Barts trip on Instagram. I mean, why not? She looks bomb. She can (most likely) promote her store by wearing a new outfit in each post. And most importantly, her fans can keep up with her life in between seasons.

Based on the photos, it looks like this was an adults only trip. Melissa shared a photo with her husband Joe Gorga and other fun pics with her girlfriends.

Kathy-Wakile-Italy3

Even though Kathy Wakile is no longer a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, she is still traveling and hustling like one. Just like the current cast members, Kathy and her husband Rich Wakile made a trip to Italy. It sure looked like a fun trip, but they also used it as an opportunity to research for their upcoming pizza restaurant.

Interestingly enough, Kathy’s estranged cousins (who are still thriving on RHONJ) Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice just opened up an Italian restaurant in New Jersey along with Kathy’s cousin-in-law (a title I made up) Melissa Gorga. At this point, it is a rite of passage for reality TV stars to start their own restaurant, but very few of them survive. It will be interesting to see which family restaurant ends up being the most successful.

Kim-D-Note

Why Kim DePaola, aka the notorious Kim D, has never been a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey is a mystery. She always brings the drama, pettiness, pot stirring, and rumors. Still, she’s never been paid to be on the show, yet she always delivers, so I guess it’s the reality TV version of “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” Kim D doesn’t just bring the theatrics on TV – she also posts some pretty wild things on social media.

The most recent Kim D scandal? A mysterious note that was (supposedly) delivered to Posche. In true Kim D fashion, she never revealed the contents of the note, who sent it, or any pertinent details. She just teased that she received a letter on social media. Obviously, this isn’t Kim D’s first rodeo. She has piqued curiosity, and she knows that there will be plenty of people checking her social media accounts for a follow-up post.

Melissa & Joe Gorga Attend #RHONJ Disco Party

Last night the Real Housewives Of New Jersey had a disco party and overdosed on glitter, sparkles, and tacky. You know, like their usual Sunday brunches! (I kid). 

Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania came together to celebrate newcomer Margaret Josephs‘ birthday.

Teresa Giudice

To say that Teresa Giudice has had a tough year would definitely be an understatement. Whether you’re a fan of hers or not, you have to admit that she’s gone through a lot. She is a single parent now that her husband Joe Giudice is serving his prison sentence for fraud, her mother passed away, and I’m sure that she is dealing with a lot of drama as a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member.

The one bright side of all this is that she has a lot of material to work with, not only for a reality TV show, but also for another book.
