The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Walking On Broken Glass

She’s managed to behave herself for long enough – now it’s time for Teresa Giudice to start breaking sh*t in restaurants again! This week on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Tre goes bananas when she hears Kim DePaola is spreading rumors about her rumored side piece. But her real issue is with Dolores Catania, who she claims didn’t defend her against the three-headed snake that is Kim D. While Siggy Flicker and Melissa Gorga come to a better place after a “healing” exercise about cake -(yesss! please let this be the frigging cake’s final gasp!) – Danielle Staub silently plans her next move against Dolores. As for Margaret Josephs? Well, she just continues to be kind of awesome.

We begin at Siggy’s hellish retreat, where she’s mimicking Margaret in a far inferior sketch than Marge just pulled off. No one is impressed. Furthermore, no one understands how this lame game is supposed to bring them closer together. Essentially, it’s like we’ve all died and gone to corporate retreat team building hell. But anyway, here we are. At least Siggy and Margaret get over the exercise fairly quickly, returning amicably to their spot on the wall of shame. But not so fast for Siggy! Get back in the ring, woman!

Joe And Melissa Gorga Vacation With Their Family In Mexico- PHOTOS

Anyone who had one too many awkward conversations with relatives on Thanksgiving needs to take a cue from the Gorga family and just get away from it all. Melissa Gorga, her husband Joe Gorga, their three kids, and Joe’s father Giacinto Gorga all spent the holiday together at a resort in Mexico. That sounds like the ideal Thanksgiving to me: no cooking, no cleaning, no nonsense.

They lounged in the sun, coordinated outfits, fished on a boat, and it looks like they had a way more relaxing Thanksgiving than I’ve ever had in my whole life. Thanksgiving on the beach definitely seems like the ideal way to celebrate the holiday.

Check out the photos of Melissa, Joe, and the rest of the family,  enjoying their vacation in Mexico. And just in case anyone was wondering where Melissa’s vacation outfits are from- rest assured, there are  a lot of tags and shout outs for Melissa’s store Envy, which is shocking to no one.

Instagram Roundup

There is just so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Obviously, health and happiness are high up on the list, but somewhere after the main priorities in life, the dedicated TV viewers are thankful for their favorite reality stars. Aside from spending time with family and devouring delicious foods, there’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by enjoying some reality star photos in the latest edition of Instagram Roundup. It’s also a lot better than indulging in awkward or boring conversation with your least favorite relatives.

There were just so many random (and juicy) things going on this week! Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D was hanging out with former cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Amber Marchese to talk shit about Teresa at a friend’s baby shower. Love & Hip Hop star Joseline Hernandez shared a photo with her and Cynthia Bailey’s ex husband Peter Thomas. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent shared a selfie from church (yes, you read that correctly) and she even made it to Kathy Wakile’s pizza restaurant in New Jersey- if that is not the most random pairing in the world, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, yes I do: Whitney Sudler-Smith at a baby shower with Reese Witherspoon. I have so many questions about that one.

Check out the most interesting photos from the last week in the gallery below!

Siggy Flicker Discusses What Wasn’t Shown On RHONJ, Jacqueline Laurita Leaving The Show, & Why Teresa Giudice Is The Number One Housewife In History

There’s no doubt that Real Housewives of New Jersey has centered around Teresa Giudice and her family for most of its run. While the Giudices bring the most compelling moments to Season 8, this season’s arguing is focused on Siggy Flicker. Almost every conversation leads back to Siggy and she hasn’t been showed in the most favorable light.

Siggy opened up about what wasn’t shown that led to her explosive reactions, Jacqueline Laurita leaving the show, and what makes Teresa such a great Housewife.

Melissa Gorga Denies Meeting With Danielle Staub Before Filming; Says Siggy Flicker Is Different Than She Was Last Year

In comparison to seasons past, this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey has been a breeze for Melissa Gorga. She has just enough drama to get screen time, but she’s really not in the thick of it. Plus she gets to promote her store Envy at every possible second. She really is in the best spot out of all the Jersey ladies at this point.

This is a stark contrast from the woman who joined the show in the middle of a feud with Teresa Giudice after Danielle Staub infamously brought up the family drama during the Season 2 reunion. Apparently Danielle and Melissa were talking about their (former) shared enemy years ago, but apparently they only met this season.

Margaret Josephs Thinks Siggy Flicker's Slumber Party With Dolores Catania Was Ridiculous; Calls Siggy

No one has adjust so easily to becoming a Real Housewife the way Margaret Josephs has on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Right off the bat she was talking about “pot puss,” getting with her husband Joe Benigno while she was married to someone else, and she opens up more and more with each episode. So of course she has a lot of colorful things to say in response to each episode.

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.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Not Over It

I’m over it. You’re over it. My neighbor, who doesn’t even watch The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, is over it. But Siggy Flicker is NOT OVER IT, people! Yes, we’re talking about Boca. And this week, Siggy decides to take her juvenile antics to a lower level of pre-K when she literally sticks her tongue out at Margaret Josephs to drive the point home. The point being…nanny nanny boo boo? Not to be outdone by the Most Talented Person On The Planet, Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice decide to scrap as well. Whether their drama is real or fake is still up for debate, but there’s no doubt that mutual resentment is buried deep in the basement of each woman’s respective McMansion.

At Margaret’s house, she’s returning from Vegas just in time to “wash the puss and the pits.” Marge Sr. is happy to hear Marge Jr.’s success in getting her shoe line licensed. She also got to steal some hotel slippers, so the trip was a big win. Margaret didn’t have time to by her husband, Joe, anything in Vegas though, so he’s grumpy. She thinks he’s a stage 5 clinger and needs him to back-that-sh*t-up when she walks in the door. She also needs Siggy to take several seats, especially after she hears about her continued cake drama at the purse party. “This is like high school,” says Marge. “I love it.”
