Instagram Roundup: Luann de Lesseps, Margaret Josephs, Kristen Doute, Siggy Flicker & More

It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

Siggy Flicker took her family to her favorite city in the world: Boca Raton for some R&R. Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Faye Resnick, and their families spent time in Aspen, Colorado. Bethenny Frankel soaked up some sun on the beach while former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon showed off her bikini body in Miami.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Fauxpology

It’s an enormous bummer that this season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey has been derailed into bitter accusations of anti-Semitism, especially after we hearty souls weathered the petty nonsense of cake-gate for so damn long! Can’t we just watch these broads make pasta in Milan, get confused about cathedrals, mispronounce some sh*t, and call it a day? Unfortunately, there’s unfinished business between the ladies to belabor…for ages.

Siggy Flicker continues her anti-Margaret Josephs campaign this week, initially refusing to accept Marge’s apology. But at least she and Teresa Giuidice share a tender moment while bonding over the loss of Tre’s mom, Antonia. Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub also try to walk the line of frenemy-ship so as to avoid lockup in Italy. While the women try not to get kicked out of eating establishments abroad, Joe Gorga has a heart to heart with his nieces back in Jersey. His message to them: Stop being Satan!

Melissa Gorga & Andy Cohen Will Go To Trial In August 2018 To Face Off Against Melissa’s Former Business Partner

Minus that cake fight, this Real Housewives of New Jersey season has been relatively drama-free for Melissa Gorga. Now her former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson is coming for her and the king of Bravo himself, Andy Cohen, with a dramatic lawsuit.

Jackie is suing Melissa and Andy for THIRTY MILLIONS DOLLARS because of the “defamation and infliction of emotional distress.” Melissa shared that Jackie cleared out her store during an episode of the show. Andy brought this up while Melissa was a guest on Watch What Happens Live, so that’s why his name is attached to this lawsuit as well.

Margaret Josephs Reveals What Wasn’t Shown During Teresa Giudice’s Confrontation With Kim D At The Posche Fashion Show

Some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies may view Kim D as a cockroach (pronounced cock-A-roach), but she does certainly bring it with her cameo appearances. There’s no better way to get the RHONJ  fandom on your side than to go against Kim D- and if it’s at a Posche fashion show, it is always iconic. We saw glimpses of the table-flipping Teresa Giudice from Season 1 of the show when she crashed the Posche Fashion show to confront Kim D about those cheating rumors.

Teresa spelling out “Posche” with a letter by letter insult aimed at Kim D was nothing short of legendary. Pushing that chair was just the cherry on top. Unfortunately for Teresa, she ultimately just gave Kim what she wanted: publicity for her store and increased attention on social media. Fortunately for the viewers, we will always have this scene to treasure. Margaret Josephs opens up about her first shake down and what the viewers did not get to see.

Margaret Josephs Discusses Siggy Flicker’s Anti-Semitic Accusations On The Jenny McCarthy Show

The war between Siggy Flicker and her ego everyone else on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has reached a boiling point. And Margaret Josephs, once again, finds herself on the receiving end of Siggy’s latest barbs – this time about being anti-Semitic. Thus, the drama that has gone well beyond cake-throwing, heading now into straight up character assassination (and, dare we say, defamation?) territory.

Margaret visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to dish on the latest drama between Siggy and her. Asked to briefly describe this season of RHONJ, Margaret says, “Good, bad, ugly, epic, and – amazing!” When asked who she’s pissed off so far this season, Margaret does not mince words: “Soggy and Dolores.” Yup. That just about sums it up!

Kim DePaola Says Teresa Giudice Did Her Dirty

Whether you love Kim DePaola or love to hate her, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have to admit that she makes good TV. Her best friendship turned rivalry with Teresa Giudice has blessed us all with some epic Posche fashion show encounters over the years.

This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Meltdown In Milan

Our apologies, Italy. Please don’t judge us based on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey visiting your fair country! As the ladies storm into Milan, breaking glasses and acting like a$$es, Danielle Staub finally goes, well…Danielle Staub on everyone. Having no more stale cake to metaphorically drag around, Siggy Flicker decides it’s time to up the ante by calling out Margaret Josephs on her Hitler remarks. Dolores Catania tries to ride the very sharp fence of loyalty to Teresa Giudice and Siggy, while Melissa Gorga pretends to be an entrepreneur as she scours the fashion houses of Milan for feather boas and plunging necklines. Envy needs some sh*t on its shelves, after all.

After packing montages where everyone discusses what an epic disaster the trip is bound to be, we cut to the ladies landing in Italy in one piece. Marge is just glad no one has breathed a word about the Posche fashion show, but Melissa thinks it’s nuts that no one’s discussing the elephant – or in Kim DePaola’s case, the leathery lizard – in the room. In the van on the way to their hotel, Dolores asks what the agenda is? Ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Beyonce and get in Formation! The teams shall be: Siggy/Dolores, Margaret/Melissa, and Teresa/Danielle. It will be a six-women-enter-five-women-leave situation, a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. (Except set in a swag hotel rather than a dusty mosh pit.)

Melissa Gorga’s Former “Envy” Business Partner Slaps Andy Cohen & Melissa With $30 Million Lawsuit For Defamation!

Shocking news! Not everything we see on reality television is REAL! Okay, we already knew that, but in Melissa Gorga’s case, made-for-tv-drama is coming back to bite her in a very real way. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s former business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson, is filing suit against Melissa and Andy Cohen for besmirching her good name publicly. She’s hired hard-hitting lawyer Larry Klayman to handle the case.

Jackie, who opened Envy boutique with Melissa last year, parted ways with the reality star in January due to differences of opinion and clashing visions for the store’s direction, “specifically about Robinson’s desire to expand selection to accommodate shoppers who aren’t, say, a size 2,” according to the press release. Jackie and Melissa both signed legal paperwork to dissolve their partnership, but since then Melissa is reportedly fabricating a story that Jackie deceived her and actually “stole” her merchandise in the middle of the night. Not true, according to the lawyers!
