Dolores Catania has been friends with the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast for many years, so I’m pretty surprised that she was not a part of the show sooner. It makes perfect sense for her to be a cast member since she actually knows everyone very well and it’s very organic for her to be around.
Other than the fact that Dolores knew all of the cast members before joining the show, we don’t know too much about Dolores yet. Thankfully she has opened up about her decision to join the show and her girl Teresa Giudice’s post-prison life.
Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey we got to witness the Christmas miracle of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga burying the hatchet and leaving the past ugliness behind them. We’re not sure if it’ll last, but we’ll just have to wait and see. We also witnessed a super awkward New Year’s Eve call between Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita, which Teresa says was totally innocent and well-intentioned.
Teresa shared that Christmas Eve with her family was her favorite moment of the episode. “I was so happy to see Joey and Melissa, my niece and nephews, and my parents, who mean so much to me. It felt soooo good to be back with my family again. I felt like I never left.”
Has she had any work done to her face or body? “No, but I want to soon.”
Andy mentions that Jacqueline didn’t seem receptive to Teresa’s New Year’s Eve call. “At that time my guard was up. I hadn’t heard from her in so long and then the note. But it was when she said “oh do you always answer the phone on speaker?” She knows when you’re on a reality show you always put your phone on speaker. So I thought she was trying to throw me under the bus and that turned me off immediately and why my walls went up.”
Aside from the nonsense story lines with Jacqueline Laurita and the two new Housewives that none of us know yet, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere episode was really emotional. At this point I just wish that the show was about Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudiceand their families. I guess that it basically is, but officially dropping the dead weight (Jacqueline) would make for a great show.
But anyway, the Gorga/Giudice portion of RHONJwas on point and I was all sorts of emotional when I was watching it. Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga were so excited and nervous for Teresa to come home and I really felt the tension when I was watching-I also have no life, but anyway)… Melissa shared her thoughts on the first episode of Season 7.
Who I did not enjoy seeing was Jacqueline Laurita, who is still crazy after all these years. Also, Poison just had to show off his little poison spewer and just no. Still no. Always no. Forever no. Like Melissa Gorga has to be married to him and enjoy his many splendored little thing, but the rest of us, we didn’t take those vows to honor and cherish anything about him.
Also, Melissa has new hair that is quite short and blonde. Interesting.
