The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Reunion, Part Two

We made it. We lived through all 15 episodes of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and came out on the other side worn out, weary, and ready for a nice long break. Before rumors of cast shake ups for next season start swirling (as they most certainly will), let’s re-live the last gasps of this season’s wreckage.

In the second part of RHONJ’s Reunion, accusations are thrown like tables in the back room of a Manzo restaurant. Dolores Catania accuses Danielle Staub of being on drugs, Teresa Giudice (and, by association, Melissa Gorga) accuses Kim DePaola of being a White Walker madame (!!), Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs accuse each other of so much dirt, it’s beyond what any recap can handle. So – let’s just take a look at the highlights! Or lowlights?

Even More Drama For Gorga’s Homemade Pizza & Pasta

It seems like there is a new news story related to the Gorga’s Homemade Pizza & Pasta every day and none of them are good. First of all, Joe Gorga taking Melissa Gorga out to lunch and then “surprising” her with the “news” that he bought that restaurant just seemed way too contrived.

Come to find out, Joe, Melissa, and Teresa Giudice didn’t even completely own the restaurant, which isn’t super shocking. They slapped their name on an existing restaurant in a “rebrand” for the perfect story line. Now they want their former business partners to drop the Gorga name from the restaurant and they have sent a cease-and-desist letter.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Reunion, Part One

Here we are at the finish line of a cuckoo season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In the spirit of Real Housewives Reunions past and present, we must pay homage to all of the fights, cake throws, and anti-Semitic slander that went down. Since we’ve already lived through it once, why not do it all over again? Warning: There are split screen throw downs and Release the gimp! moments in store (i.e., Kim D makes an appearance). It’s GO time!

First things first, the attire. Melissa Gorga, in my opinion, wins best in show for this reunion because she went for cocktail chic instead of junior prom night circa 1995. Controversial opinion: Margaret Josephs comes in second, if only because that shade of green is perfection on her, and I’m loving the noticeable absence of pigtails. Teresa Giudice is looking very…Teresa, which is pretty damn good for someone who struggles valiantly against the gravity of her hairline. Meanwhile, Danielle Staub, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania bring up the caboose of this fashion(ish) show with fullly engorged bubbies On Display! On Display! On Display! in more bronzer than the smush-room of the Jersey Shore house ever saw. Let’s hope these couches get a good dry cleaning after this sh*t goes down.

More Trouble For Joe Gorga – Sued By Tenants!

Dang – January is not Joe Gorga‘s month! Last week he announced his restaurant, Gorga’s, is closing and this week his rental tenants are suing him!

In January 2015 one of Joe’s tenants slipped and fell on ice, fracturing his arm, at a “rental property that [Joe] owned under a business name,”  explains Gerard Nisivoccia, an attorney for the plaintiff. 

Teresa Giudice Explains Posting A Photo With Divorce Attorney & Leaving The Finale Party With Siggy Flicker; Melissa Gorga Discusses Restaurant Closing Drama

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga appeared on Watch What Happens Live to address all of the RHONJ questions that the fandom needed answered.

What do they think about Siggy Flicker leaving the show? Did Teresa actually get an apologize from Joe Giudice when she visited him in prison? Why did it take so long for Teresa to visit him? What is going on with their restaurant closing less than a year after it opened.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Finale Recap: Prisons, Proposals, And Parties

After a short season of Siggy Flicker unravelling, Teresa Giuidice namaste-ing, and Margaret Josephs pig-tailing, it’s the end of the road for The Real Housewives Of New Jersey. Despite the left turns and dead ends going on behind the scenes (and damn, is it a MESS!), the cast boldly pretends to finish out the season on a unified path. Well, except for Siggy and Margaret. And Danielle Staub and Dolores Catania. And Kim DePaola and…everyone else. Okay – never mind! All these b*tches still hate each other. But they did wear glittery eyeshadow and weird wigs!

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?!

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Joe and Melissa Gorga‘s storyline for this season of Real Housewives Of New Jersey was the opening of their restaurant. Unfortunately before the season even ended, the restaurant closed! Well, kinda.

As with everything on RHONJ there are 13 sides to the story, and the truth is obscured at the bottom of a fake Chanel bag underneath leopard print, glitter, and salami. So of course that’s also the situation surrounding the sudden closure of Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza.

According to a source although the Gorgas (and one Giudice) are no longer part of ‘Gorga’s’ the restaurant remains open, in the same location, but is being run by Joe’s now ex-partners, who are still using the name Gorga’s. 

Report: Danielle Staub’s Engagement Gets Cut From From Real Housewives Of New Jersey After Having Sex At Gorga Restaurant; Preview For Tonight’s Finale

In the middle of the current Real Housewives of New Jersey season, there was a trailer for what’s to “come” during the rest of the season and that included Danielle Staub and her boyfriend Marty Caffrey having sex in the bathroom at Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga’s restaurant opening.

That scene never made it into the episode and I had no idea why. Why dangle that kind of content in front of us and then not air it?
