The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giacinto Gorga broke my heart yet again when he and Teresa Giudice shared more tears over the loss of her mother, Antonia. While Teresa took her family to Puerto Rico, Joe and Melissa Gorga stayed home with theirs to attempt disciplining their emerging tween. Hormones weren’t just affecting the young, as we saw when Siggy Flicker dragged cameras to her doctor appointment to discuss the finer points of hormone replacement therapy. And Dolores Catania faced off with Margaret Josephs, proving her undying delusional loyalty to Siggy by justifying her wack-job behavior at the Gorga’s tasting party!

As Teresa packs for Puerto Rico, she tells Milania that they’ll email Joe Giudice in prison while they’re gone. Without Joe, Tre is glad she has her father to lean on. “He is my rock right now,” she admits. Meanwhile, Dolores is joining Siggy at the doctor’s office to discuss hormone treatments. In her butt. Siggy doesn’t want to be known as “Soggy” anymore, and is hoping getting her hormones balanced out will help shed her new, obnoxious image. Well, that and not sticking your tongue out at other middle-aged women, maybe? But hey – it’s a start.

Melissa Gorga Is Surprised Teresa Giudice Has Been So Open This Season; Says Joe Gorga Isn’t Into Being A Reality Star

After many seasons of fighting with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice on Real Housewives of New Jersey, this seems like Melissa Gorga’s easiest season yet: she and Teresa are loyal to each other, she gets to promote her businesses on the show, and her marriage with Joe Gorga is solid.

Most importantly, she’s not involved in any of the major drama. Sure, there was a huge fuss over cakegate, but most of the real fighting seems to be going on between Margaret Josephs and Siggy Flicker or Danielle Staub and Dolores Catania.

Jacqueline Laurita Warned Dolores Catania About Danielle Staub; Says Teresa Has Lost Her Mind

Dolores Catania gave a candid interview this week on The Tomorrow Show. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star explains why she worries about her friendship with Siggy Flicker, why she didn’t initially join the show, and why she is so confused by Danielle Staub‘s behavior – despite warnings from Jacqueline Laurita.

On her fear of the show ruining her friendship with Siggy Flicker: “Yes. That is a fear. Listen I never say never say never. I think I could handle anything, and sometimes you get caught in the crosshairs of things. Like the whole Margaret thing, and the whole, just everything. You get caught and you got to be just…my mother said to me, ‘you know it’s very hard to stay friends on this show. You gotta be careful.’ ”

Teresa Giudice Says She Doesn’t Judge Siggy Flicker; Brandi Glanville

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.

Daniele Staub Says Jacqueline Laurita “Doesn’t Have A Genuine Bone In Her Body” & That She Helped Jacqueline With Her Kids Every Day

During the first two seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub was cast as the outsider causing trouble among a tight knit group of family and friends. Her closest friend was Jacqueline Laurita who struggled trying to please her family while still being her own person.

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 RHONJ first 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.

Danielle Staub Wants To Write A Guide On Getting Engaged; Says She’s Afraid Of Dolores Catania & “Karma Will Be A Big Bitch” To Ashlee Holmes

No one will ever forget Teresa Giudice screaming at Danielle Staub about “getting engaged nineteen times” during the first Real Housewives of New Jersey finale. It was iconic thanks to that table flip. Now, Teresa and Danielle are friends, Danielle is back on Real Housewives and she has a new enemy: Dolores Catania.

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.

Instagram Roundup: Dorinda Medley, Teresa Giudice, Jax Taylor, The “Jersey Shore” Cast & More

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.

Teresa Giudice Says She Didn’t Get To Know Danielle Staub Well Enough Last Time

The new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been off to a dramatic start and Teresa Giudice is weighing in on some of the mess that we’ve seen so far. She shares her thoughts on newbie Margaret Josephs, on Siggy Flicker‘s hostility over the cake disrespecting, and on Danielle Staub‘s return to the show.

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.”
