As the sole remaining original cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s only natural that the Teresa Giudice we “met” during the first season is a lot different than the lady we are currently watching during Season 8. Aside from that iconic table flip, Teresa has been known for keeping her personal feelings private, slapping on a happy face, and acting like everything is all right even when it very clearly isn’t.
I’m all for this new Teresa. She’s zen when she needs to be, she throws objects to entertain us, and she is finally open about her resentment toward her husband Joe Giudice after her prison stint.
In all honesty, Siggy Flicker’s first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey was a total cake walk. She was friends with everyone and her biggest issue was being upset that the other ladies weren’t getting along. This season is a totally different story for her. Five episodes in and she has delivered a meme-worthy moment for each of them.
Unfortunately it isn’t all praise since Siggy has some quotes that are pretty outrageous. She is the topic of conversation every week- within each episode and while it airs on social media. One remark that definitely stood out to people was when she proclaimed, “I think I’m the most talented human being on the face of the earth.”
As we all know, the ladies refused to film with Danielle, she got the boot, Jacqueline is off the show, and Danielle is back talking to anyone who will listen about her “perfect relationship with Teresa Giudice.” Danielle may seem to be more zen than the woman we “met” back when RHONJfirst started, but make no mistake, she still has an ax to grind and she has a lot of hostility directed toward Jacqueline and Caroline Manzo.
Really? Dolores. She is the least shady person in this cast, but Danielle has major issues with her. From telling Teresa that Dolores supposedly said that Teresa “only cares about money” to asking Dolores where “her honey” was, Danielle is just all about “poking the bear” as she says. Thankfully for Dolores (and the viewers) Dolores is not afraid to poke back and it makes for some great television.
It’s no secret that this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is a lot harder for Siggy Flicker than her first one. She went from the peacemaker who couldn’t help crying, to the topic of conversation that couldn’t hold back her tears when her enemies turned up the heat. Aside from the ladies on the show, the viewers are coming for Siggy on Twitter.
Sure, it probably happened before, just like it does with any other reality star, but this season is a brutal one for the relationship expert. Even so, it seems like she can’t help checking her notifications and reading what the people say, which I totally get. Andy Cohen has advised Siggy to stay away from social media.
There’s no better way to start out your weekend than with the best reality star Instagram posts of the week. No need to scroll through your feed or type in all of the names that matter. I got you covered and there was a lot going on this week and this is aside from the Halloween festivities.
The entire Jersey Shore cast (minus one person) got together to celebrate Deena Cortese’s wedding, getting me all nostalgic. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars gathered with Andy Cohen to film the Season 2 reunion and posted a group photo to show off their glamorous ensembles (and spray tans…most likely). Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer went all out when they dressed up as famous pop stars for Halloween. The Vanderpump Rules cast were living it up with appearances at the World Series and an LA clothing store launch. The Southern Charm crew made it very clear that they are filming the next season because they were turning up all over Charleston doing shotskis, watching Monday Night Football, and attending restaurant openings.
On Danielle’s return to the show, Teresa claims she’s excited to finally get to know the real Danielle. “I think it’s great. I never really got the chance to know her last time because she had people in her ear; I had people in my ear; so it was just really about finding time. Now this season, we finally have the chance to sit down together and start our friendship, so you’ll start seeing us getting together much more.”
Dolores called her a “scumbag” over and over again in an instantly iconic scene. Nevertheless, both the women are standing their ground to this day, so who is telling the truth? Dolores addressed this drama and the rest of RHONJSeason 8 during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
