Danielle Staub

Boy some things have changed on Real Housewives Of New Jersey! Once upon a time, Danielle Staub was Teresa Giudice‘s mortal enemy, and Teresa was BFF with Jacqueline Laurita. Now, Jacqueline is completely out of the picture, and the woman Teresa once labeled a “prostitution whore” has become her bestie.

“Everything aligned perfectly,” Danielle gushed of her decision to return to RHONJ after a lengthy absence. Danielle’s decision was impacted after she bonded with Teresa over yoga and realized there would be no more table flips or country club shake downs. I am sure it did not hurt that Teresa and Danielle were also able to bond over running Jacqueline off.

The reality stars flocked to OK! Magazine’s Fall Fashion Week 2017 party last night in NYC. Among the stars in attendance: Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan and former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile.

Kathy also brought along her husband, Rich. We wonder how awkward things were since a lot of Kathy’s former Jersey co-stars were also at the NYFW event: Melissa Gorga, Danielle Staub, and newbie Margaret Josephs.

Also spotted at the reality star studded event: Bachelorette‘s Rachel Lindsay, Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Cary Deuber, and even Real Housewives of Atlanta sidekick Marlo Hampton, rocking pink hair.

Check out the party pics below. Who has your vote for the best look of the night?

Based on the trailer, Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is going to be exactly what this show needs to get back on track. After that Season 6 casting misfire with the twins and Amber Marchese and a Season 7 that centered around the demise of Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita’s friendship, Season 8 appears to be the exactly what the fandom needs.

Siggy Flicker is back, but she is not the peacemaker from last year. She has a lot to address this season. From her friendship with the always controversial Kim D to her issues with the new Housewife Margaret Josephs, it looks like she will be in the thick of the drama this season. And then there’s the part of the trailer (which I can’t stop watching) where she tells Danielle Staub “you’re f-cked up” immediately after Danielle says “that’s f-cked up.” It looks like Jersey is going to be off the rails this year and Siggy teases about the “epic season” that is just a month away.

Kate Chastain and Nico Scholly

After what felt like the longest break ever, Watch What Happens Live is back with new episodes. It’s perfect timing with the Below Deck Season 5 premiere, so it was fitting that Kate Chastain and Nico Scholly were Andy Cohen’s guests. They are the only returning crew members from last season.

Kate, Nico, and Andy discussed the Below Deck episode and even shared their commentary on some of the Below Deck Mediterranean drama that went down during its last season. Plus, two Real Housewives rang the door bell for some surprise appearances.

We finally have the date we’ve all been waiting for! The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres in less than two months! The eighth season will kick off on Wednesday, October 4th on Bravo.

Teresa Giudice is the only original New Jersey Housewife returning full time this season, along with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and last season’s newbies Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker. The show will add in just one new housewife this year: Margaret Josephs. Danielle Staub will be returning, as well, but apparently not as a full time cast member.

Danielle Staub Celebrates Birthday With Surprise Party & RHONJ Cast

Danielle Staub turned 55 this week and celebrated with family, plus a surprise birthday party thrown by her 20th fiancé Marty Caffey, which was also attended by some of her Real Housewives Of New Jersey castmates.

I’m guessing this means RHONJ is still filming as Danielle’s new BFF Teresa Giudice was there, along with new Housewife Margaret Josephs and rumored possible castmate Alisa Maria Fronzaglia, who is a friend of Teresa’s and has been filming intermittently with the ladies for a while – for years actually. We’ll see if she actually makes the cut this year!

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.
