Kim D

Teresa

News from the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies has been on the quiet side since the last season went off the air. Its spin-off show Manzo’d With Children isn’t even on right now. So basically no one is getting into arguments and even the self-promotion has gone down (very slightly). This week, however, there are some little slivers of news from the Garden State reality stars.

Teresa Giudice has been honored for her skills as an author – yes, I’m totally serious. Dolores Catania has basically confirmed that she and Siggy Flicker will be back on RHONJ. Also, Caroline Manzo’s daughter Lauren Manzo is about to pop out her first baby at any moment.

Dolores-Catania-Gym-Opening-Jackie-Beard-Robinson

I get that Dolores Catania’s shtick on Real Housewives of New Jersey is that she’s the neutral party who’s friends with everyone in the cast, but I was definitely surprised to see Melissa Gorga’s former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson at the opening of the Dolores’s new gym.

There was zero indication that Dolores and Jackie were friends and the end of Jackie and Melissa‘s business arrangement was far from amicable. I get that Dolores has “been around forever” and has known most of these ladies for years, but I feel like Jackie’s appearance would not sit well with Melissa.

Real Housewives Story Lines

Judge me if you must but I have to keep it real when I admit that I’ve seen every single Real Housewives episode multiple times. With that said, I cannot help favoring some story lines over others – the Real Housewives story lines that got dragged out way longer than they ever should have.

Some of these plot lines were juicy at first, but just got beat to the ground. Then there are other things that happened that none of us cared about, yet they got dragged out for two or more seasons. Either way, there are plenty of story lines that did more than outstay their welcome.

RHOA Season 4

Reality Tea is ranking of every, single Housewife from every, single season from almost every Real Housewives franchise. You can find Part 1 of our rankings here. Now we finally return with Part 2 (aka the big ole mush in the middle)!

In Part 1 we mostly covered most Housewives who were either too crazy to be legit, or didn’t make much of an impact, or were just so miscast and off it was painful. Some of them were too nice, or too timid, or not rich enough, or too desperate. If she’s only a Housewife for a season, there’s usually a reason!

Below we continue to analyze and dissect the ladies from Real Housewives Of New JerseyReal Housewives Of AtlantaReal Housewives Of PotomacReal Housewives Of New YorkReal Housewives Of Beverly HillsReal Housewives Of DallasReal Housewives of Miami, and Real Housewives Of Orange County. We’re skipping the short-lived Real Housewives Of DC, because no one even remembers who they are. Well except for one…

Envy-Reopening-Melissa-Gorga-Joe-Gorga-post

The future was not looking too bright for Melissa Gorga‘s store Envy after her partner Jackie Beard Robinson left. To add insult to injury, Jackie sold the Envy merchandise at Posche, the story owned by Melissa’s nemesis Kim DePaola. Melissa insisted that it wasn’t the end for her store though and she bounced back quicker than anyone ever expected. Envy is already up and running again and some Real Housewives cast members turned up for the re-opening party.

Of course, Melissa’s sister-in-law-turned-best-friend Teresa Giudice was there to lend her support. The always-neutral cast member Dolores Catania was on hand as well. Weirdly enough, all three of them had the same brown hair with blonde highlights. RHONJ friend (and shit stirrer) Robyn Levy came through as well. The more interesting story is who wasn’t pictured.

Melissa-Gorga-Envy

For the most part, Melissa Gorga’s main story line last season on Real Housewives of New Jersey was opening up her clothing store Envy which was basically just a multi-episode push for publicity, but I would do the same thing if I were her. Recently Envy made headlines Melissa’s former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson liquidated inventory and had a big sale at rival Kim DePaola’s store Posche. Well, Melissa got it together way sooner than any of us expected and Envy is set to reopen pretty soon.

We all know how thirsty Kim D is for attention and that she would do anything to screw with Melissa, so it is not at all shocking that she managed to involve herself in this mess. At this point, Melissa is winning this feud, but I feel like Kim D always manages to slither her way to some form of revenge.

Real Housewives of New Jersey ratings - Kim DePaola

Kim D constantly stirs things up on Real Housewives of New Jersey and in some weird way I love her for that. I like how we don’t actually have to get to know Kim D or hear anything about her family/personal life, but she just comes in to cause drama and let the other ladies clean it up. I would be afraid to cross her in real life, but as a viewer, I really live for her appearances.

Now that Kim is no longer a Teresa Giudice soldier, she is coming for Tre and her new BFF Melissa Gorga. Did you really think that part 1 of the RHONJ reunion would air without Kim sharing her thoughts? Of course not. Kim D is a card carrying member of Jacqueline Laurita’s squad now and she is spilling all of the tea. Honestly, I can never tell if she is telling the truth or if she is just making things up to get attention, but Kim D is always doing what she can to be a part of the conversation.

Melissa Gorga

After an emotional goodbye to Joe Giudice on this week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa Gorga says she’s convinced family is more important than ever. And former friends like Jacqueline Laurita are, frankly, just not worth her time anymore. Claiming that friendship with Jacqueline was basically “EXHAUSTING,” Melissa sounds off in her blog about how Jacqueline cannot let go of the past.

Before unraveling that mess, Melissa focuses on Juicy Joe’s departure for “camp.” She writes, “I think we can all agree that last night’s episode was so raw and emotional. No matter how you look at the situation, it is heartbreaking to see a family go through something like this. Teresa [Giudice] and her girls are incredibly strong. I’m so happy that we were able to be there for them and have the kids spend time together with Joe Giudice before he went away.”
