Real Housewives of New Jersey is a rare show in the Real Housewives franchise because the side characters are just as vital as the actual Housewives. As the ladies have said Kim DePaola aka Kim D is a “cockroach” that just hasn’t gone away. She probably never will if she continues to get the newly zen Teresa Giudice so riled up every single time she is mentioned- let alone when she actually appears. It is prime TV- although a lot of people are getting sick of the chronically recycled stunt.
Then there are other side characters that make the show better in a positive way. One of those is Teresa’s third daughter, Milania Giudice. She always manages to steal the show, say what everyone is thinking, and bless us with the best meme material. Obviously Milania is just a child, but Teresa recently revealed that she weighed in on the feud with Kim D.
Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped and there are already rumors about next year’s cast. There is a lot of speculation that original cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzowill return to the show which would be very interesting considering their contentious relationships with Teresa Giudice. Plus fellow OG Danielle Staub is back on the scene these days so there is plenty of potential for drama.
Teresa was asked about the possibility of Jacqueline and Caroline coming back and she hurled some harsh insults their way. Now Jacqueline’s daughter (and Caroline’s niece) Ashlee Holmesis firing back.
Danielle made that very clear when she threw shade (and even some direct insults) at Jacqueline, Caroline, and Kim on Watch What Happens Live last night. Believe it or not, she just kept it old school with her beef and there was not one Dolores Catania dig the entire episode. She’s probably saving those up for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taping.
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.
News from the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies has been on the quiet side since the last season went off the air. Its spin-off show Manzo’d With Children isn’t even on right now. So basically no one is getting into arguments and even the self-promotion has gone down (very slightly). This week, however, there are some little slivers of news from the Garden State reality stars.
