Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
If that does actually happen, how will that affect the rest of the cast? Will Danielle Staub remain a “Friend of the Housewives” or return to full-time status? New Jersey has never had more than five official Housewives in the cast, so it would be interesting to see who takes priority if either of those OG returns. The one thing that seems pretty solid is that the people want Margaret Josephs to return no matter what.
Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
Now-former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Siggy Flicker was a guest of Kevin Undergaro on The Tomorrow Show this week and she let her opinions fly free. Siggy shared her thoughts on a number of topics ranging from her experiences working with Harvey Weinstein to her relationship with Margaret Josephs, exiting the show after two seasons and so much more! She also reveals that she will NOT be watching RHONJ next season and also doesn’t believe the friendship between Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub is genuine.
Siggy shared that doing reality TV is hard work and that it wasn’t her choice to drag out the stupid cake story for so long. She is convinced that there wouldn’t have been any material for season 8 if it wasn’t for her.
“I’ve watched the whole season and I was shocked and I was upset. It takes a toll on you.” Reality TV is not really reality TV. It is a lot of work and you constantly have to bring up the same thing over and over and over. Do you think I want to talk about cake and a I make up a storyline: ‘let’s talk about cake for five episodes’ – I was over the cake after it happened.” She adds, “What you see is what you get with me. If there wasn’t a cake, and there wasn’t the Soggy-Siggy, there would be no season 8. The whole season was Soggy, Siggy, cake, Hitler–everything that I didn’t want stretched out to 13 episodes. I don’t know what it was, but the whole season, I was the target all season.” She does give credit to the other cast members, though, saying everyone “brought it” this season.
Margaret lives in a $1.125 million dollar mansion with her contractor husband Joseph Benigno – but maybe not for long, because on December 15, 2017, Unity Bank filed a notice of foreclosure against the couple.
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.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
