Margaret and Marge Sr. are checking out the custom made dress commissioned for Margaret’s 50th birthday party. She’s forever 21 in her head, but in the dress, her boobage is still 49. As she yanks and tugs at her cleavage, Danielle saunters in to join the party. They all discuss Siggy’s rude behavior at the Gorga’s restaurant opening. Marge isn’t going to uninvite Siggy to her disco bash just because she acted crazy – I mean, everyone’s used to that sh*t by now, right?!
Margaret Josephs and Siggy are now in open war after Siggy’s accusation that Marge was anti-Semitic. Siggy’s half-hearted (and delayed) response to Marge’s apology did nothing to cool the flames. Melissa Gorga is back in the strip mall trying to make Envy happen, despite the wishes of Joe Gorga. He apparently needs a waitress at the new pizza joint, and his only remaining name tag says “Melissa.” Teresa Giudice is living like it’s 2009 all over again as she turns up at Danielle Staub’s home to offer a contractually obligatory apology to her dorters. Except one of the dorters doesn’t even want to see her! She’s like, Namaste away, crazy lady! Tre has trouble counting to two anyway, so she likely thinks all Staub offspring are present for the blessed event.
It’s an enormous bummer that this season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey has been derailed into bitter accusations of anti-Semitism, especially after we hearty souls weathered the petty nonsense of cake-gate for so damn long! Can’t we just watch these broads make pasta in Milan, get confused about cathedrals, mispronounce some sh*t, and call it a day? Unfortunately, there’s unfinished business between the ladies to belabor…for ages.
Siggy Flicker continues her anti-Margaret Josephs campaign this week, initially refusing to accept Marge’s apology. But at least she and Teresa Giuidice share a tender moment while bonding over the loss of Tre’s mom, Antonia. Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub also try to walk the line of frenemy-ship so as to avoid lockup in Italy. While the women try not to get kicked out of eating establishments abroad, Joe Gorga has a heart to heart with his nieces back in Jersey. His message to them: Stop being Satan!
Some of the Real Housewives of New Jerseyladies may view Kim Das a cockroach (pronounced cock-A-roach), but she does certainly bring it with her cameo appearances. There’s no better way to get the RHONJ fandom on your side than to go against Kim D- and if it’s at a Posche fashion show, it is always iconic. We saw glimpses of the table-flipping Teresa Giudice from Season 1 of the show when she crashed the Posche Fashion show to confront Kim D about those cheating rumors.
Teresa spelling out “Posche” with a letter by letter insult aimed at Kim D was nothing short of legendary. Pushing that chair was just the cherry on top. Unfortunately for Teresa, she ultimately just gave Kim what she wanted: publicity for her store and increased attention on social media. Fortunately for the viewers, we will always have this scene to treasure. Margaret Josephsopens up about her first shake down and what the viewers did not get to see.
The war between Siggy Flicker and her ego everyone else on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has reached a boiling point. And Margaret Josephs, once again, finds herself on the receiving end of Siggy’s latest barbs – this time about being anti-Semitic. Thus, the drama that has gone well beyond cake-throwing, heading now into straight up character assassination (and, dare we say, defamation?) territory.
Margaret visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to dish on the latest drama between Siggy and her. Asked to briefly describe this season of RHONJ, Margaret says, “Good, bad, ugly, epic, and – amazing!” When asked who she’s pissed off so far this season, Margaret does not mince words: “Soggy and Dolores.” Yup. That just about sums it up!
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.
Our apologies, Italy. Please don’t judge us based on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey visiting your fair country! As the ladies storm into Milan, breaking glasses and acting like a$$es, Danielle Staub finally goes, well…Danielle Staub on everyone. Having no more stale cake to metaphorically drag around, Siggy Flicker decides it’s time to up the ante by calling out Margaret Josephs on her Hitler remarks. Dolores Catania tries to ride the very sharp fence of loyalty to Teresa Giudice and Siggy, while Melissa Gorga pretends to be an entrepreneur as she scours the fashion houses of Milan for feather boas and plunging necklines. Envy needs some sh*t on its shelves, after all.
After packing montages where everyone discusses what an epic disaster the trip is bound to be, we cut to the ladies landing in Italy in one piece. Marge is just glad no one has breathed a word about the Posche fashion show, but Melissa thinks it’s nuts that no one’s discussing the elephant – or in Kim DePaola’s case, the leathery lizard – in the room. In the van on the way to their hotel, Dolores asks what the agenda is? Ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Beyonce and get in Formation! The teams shall be: Siggy/Dolores, Margaret/Melissa, and Teresa/Danielle. It will be a six-women-enter-five-women-leave situation, a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. (Except set in a swag hotel rather than a dusty mosh pit.)
