Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.
If you think about it, the Real Housewives franchise is a lot like Survivor. Obviously, the Housewives are a lot more glamorous, but it is definitely difficult sticking around in the tribe on both shows.
Now Danielle is back (thank god) and Teresa is a big part of that. Danielle even described their friendship as “perfect” in recent interviews. Again, that is something that no one ever thought would happen.
As Kathy Wakile once said, Real Housewives of New Jersey really is “the Teresa show.” RHONJhistorians recall that Teresa Giudice’scousin 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.
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.
As expected, there’s another story circulating about the state of Teresa Giudice’s marriage right after the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 trailer is released. Once again, a “source” is claiming (again) that her marriage is in trouble.
At this point this is a headline every few months. Nevertheless, there is never any new information and the source is either anonymous or the infamous Kim D, yet this rumor always makes headlines and Teresa always denies the story.
