Jacqueline Laurita

As Kathy Wakile once said, Real Housewives of New Jersey really is “the Teresa show.” RHONJ historians recall that Teresa Giudice’s cousin declared that during a reunion episode argument and she didn’t mean it in a flattering way, but the quote still stands. Teresa Giudice is Real Housewives of New Jersey. Real Housewives of New Jersey is Teresa Giudice.

They even delayed filming seven months to wait for Teresa to come home from prison. Hell, they had a three-part episode where Teresa talked to her family via speaker phone. That’s right: SPEAKER PHONE. Teresa was able to carry this show via phone call, so of course anyone with eyes and ears knows that she is THE queen of the show. Like her or not, she has been and will always be the center piece of this show. With that said, everyone on the show does what they can to be in her good graces, so it’s interesting to know what Teresa thinks of all of her potential soldiers costars.

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.

Even though Jacqueline Laurita is not returning as a cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey next season, life isn’t all bad for her (excluding that whole Signature Apparel mess). Her only grandson just had his first birthday.

Jacqueline’s daughter Ashlee Holmes posted about her son Cameron turning one on social media and of course Jacqueline is thrilled about it as well.

Real Housewives Awards

Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.

Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.

For those of you keeping score at home, there’s finally been some movement in the disastrous and seriously messy bankruptcy case involving former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline and Chris Laurita and their former company, Signature Apparel.

As you’ll recall, the company filed for bankruptcy back in 2009, but things hit a snag when several people, including Jacqueline and Chris, were accused of using the company money for extravagant personal use – like private jets and fancy ass vacations.

Jacqueline

Whether you loved her or hated her, Jacqueline Laurita was the main source of drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey last year. Without her antics, there would have been nothing to tweet about and nothing for the ladies to argue about at the reunion. Sure, it was tough to watch most of the time, but she at least gave the fans something to have an opinion about… even if your opinion wasn’t positive.

Nevertheless, even the most die hard fans of the show have to admit that it was in a real rut last season so it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Jacqueline is out of the picture.

The battle of the boutiques rages on! The sequined jumpsuit (oh how our Jersey girls love a good sequined jumpsuit!) Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga wore for her birthday celebrations was an apparent source of irritation for Posche owner Kim DePaola. Turns out Kim D. had posted the exact same jumpsuit on her Posche instagram (twice) two weeks before Melissa wore it out for her birthday party over the weekend.

So naturally Kim did what all the reality stars and their sidekicks do: headed to social media. Kim let everyone know she spotted the copycat look immediately and she didn’t hold back her thoughts on the situation.
