This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.
Siggy called out Margaret Josephs for referencing Hitler and accused her of being anti-Semitic. Danielle Staub felt excluded from the scene argument and dismissed so she threw a glass in the middle of her screaming match with Siggy. Worst of all, it looks like they left before anyone got to eat food at that Italian restaurant.
“There was everything from bullying my children behind the scenes – remember, there were eleven of the Lauritas and all of them had children as well,” says Danielle, whose girls were “terrified” of the backlash they received at school. Caroline, who was originally a Laurita (along with sister Dina Manzo and brother Chris Laurita), was likely the ringleader of the harassment, according to Danielle.
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 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.
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.
It’s everybody’s yummiest weekend treat – an roundup of Instagram photos from our favorite attention-loving reality stars! Above Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund, who will soon be getting their own spinoff called Keeping It Real Estate, reveal they just co-listed a property today.
The Real Housewives Of New York star announced, “These 2 idiots have listed their apartment today. This was a design & bickering collaboration that has resulted in a 2 bedroom masterpiece.” Don’t worry – neither Bethenny nor Fredrik are are moving from their stunning homes, it’s a flipper upper.
It’s a new day in the Garden State, and that means everyone is suddenly singing the praises of ex-villain, Danielle Staub, including Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s very own Melissa Gorga. The season eight premiere set viewers up for some interesting dynamics to come, including Siggy Flicker being batsh*t cray-cray, the introduction of pigtail-bedecked Margaret Josephs (who actually seems kind of bada$$ and potentially awesome), and the return of Danielle. Melissa, for one, couldn’t be more delighted that she’s no longer the villain with this new setup!
But the first episode also replayed the sad loss of Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice’s beloved mother, Antonia, who passed away earlier this year. Melissa admits it was painful to watch it all back again. “Watching the memories of my mother-in-law and hearing her voice brought instant tears to my eyes. She was a wonderful woman, and her life was taken way too young. I never thought I would see the day that Joe broke down and couldn’t work or get out of bed. He was devastated and heartbroken for weeks and still is.”
