Here it is: a brand new round up of reality TV stars’ social media photos to kick off your weekend!

Above: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Kyle Richards looking as fierce as ever. Lisa posted the photo and captioned it with “Snatched”- enough said.

Teresa-Judge-Olivia-Caridi podcast

Who would have ever thought that Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub would be friends after Teresa flipped that table in her face during the Season 1 finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey? Danielle got the boot from the show after Season 2 and no one heard a peep from her until she and Teresa were spotted doing yoga together after the last season wrapped.

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.

Margaret-Josephs-Pigtails-Black-Tee-RHONJ

It seems we must face facts this season on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey: Siggy Flicker has decided this is her “moment” and she’s making sure everyone knows it, especially Margaret Josephs. But Margaret isn’t one to back off when Siggy huffs and puffs that she’ll pull her pigtails out! No, no, no. She came to PLAY, and I’m loving her for it. Margaret also shows us a peek into her wacky world of Claire’s Boutique inventory when she throws a launch party for her bag line, which Siggy and Dolores Catania refuse to attend. Call Siggy’s crab cakes salty, will they? Hmmph! She’ll be eating them alone from now on, then. In pigtails!

Last night began with the ladies at home after a drama-filled Boca vaycay. Melissa Gorga’s birthday cake was not able to make the trip home because – just in case anyone in the tri-state area hasn’t heard yet – Teresa Giudice threw that sh*t on the ground. (R.I.P. $1K cake!) Siggy is, by the way, still not over it – not by a long shot. The town of Boca Raton is very much over Siggy, though, I’d imagine.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Let Them Eat Cake

Nobody puts Siggy Flicker in a corner, according to Siggy Flicker. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star takes particular offense to Margaret Josephs trying to shut her down, especially because it was Siggy who “brought her in.” Jeesh – we’re only weeks into RHONJ, and alliances are already crumbling under the ladies’ feet like rickety boardwalk planks! Siggy breaks down her feelings on most of the group – except Dolores Catania – turning on her in Boca, and why she cannot be silenced.

Siggy complains, “Less than 48 hours after introducing Margaret to our group, I am being told how I should feel and what I can’t say. Margaret can’t pass up an opportunity to add fuel to the fire and cause division among my friends.” This “fire” was started by Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice getting into a food fight, which resulted in Siggy’s $1,000 custom-ordered cake being tossed on to the sidewalk.

In this week’s reality star sightings, we have Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga goofing around while they attended the DI LUSSO Salami Statue at New York City Wine and Food Festival.

Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant hosted FOX’s ‘The Mountain Between Us’ Screening in Washington D.C. Meanwhile, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin attended the red carpet for “The Tribes of Palos Verdes” during the Hamptons International Film Festival 2017.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump returned home to L.A. after a cast trip overseas. Also spotted at LAX: Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak, along with husband Kroy Biermann and daughter Brielle Biermann.

Bethenny Frankel has been working tirelessly on disaster relief for Puerto Rico. She and Ellen DeGeneres spoke onstage together for the “One Voice” Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief” in L.A. She then took a little time to glam it up for the amfAR gala. And immediately after both events, she was back at work organizing immeasurable amounts of aid for Puerto Rico, despite all of the obstacles she’s been facing. She never gives up and we love her for it.

Also in the gallery: Kourtney Kardashian, Ramona Singer and more!

Melissa & Joe Gorga

If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.

The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy. 

Teresa-Giudice-Top-Ponytail-Rosegold-Sparkle-Gown-TH-RHONJ

Despite her issues with Siggy Flicker lately, Teresa Giudice claims she still has nothing but love, love, love! for the self-proclaimed “most talented person in the world.” The Real Housewives Of New York star also regrets that Siggy and Dolores Catania didn’t take part in the flower ceremony Margaret Josephs arranged for the ladies to pay tribute to lost love ones. Whether they were excluded on purpose or not remains murky, however.

Teresa doesn’t think Siggy’s dramatics over the cake throwing incident were warranted, but she really got her drawers in a twist over Siggy calling Melissa Gorga and her “animals.”  She explains, “This episode started out with the aftermath of ‘Cake-Gate.’ I really wasn’t happy watching as Siggy called Melissa and I ‘animals.’ Just like Siggy thought us throwing the cake was in poor taste, I thought what she said about us was also in poor taste.”

Siggy-Flicker-Clapping-Dinner-Table-RHONJ

After last week’s premiere, I felt like the ladies of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey were finally bringing their A-game to Bravo. Like, maybe a producer sat them down and had a Friday Night Lights pep talk with them before cameras started rolling? Because the ingredient-zes in this year’s Sunday gravy seem just right! Maybe it’s the addition of powerhouse-in-pigtails Margaret Josephs, or maybe it’s the shock of seeing Danielle Staub’s face back on our TV screens without waiting for someone to spontaneously punch it? I don’t know. But I’m here for it!

Last night, cake-gate escalated into a mid-dinner walk out after Siggy Flicker called Melissa Gorga and (by proxy) Teresa Giudice trash. Danielle had a sudden bout of PTSD when she heard the T-word, railing against Siggy with all of the season-one angst she could muster. Dolores Catania continued to look like she’d rather be elsewhere, which kind of makes me question what she’s bringing to the table this year – other than an empty house and a fake storyline of he ex-hubby moving back in? And Teresa went to the beach with Margaret, Melissa, and Danielle to honor her late mother, Antonia, with a heart wrenching (but very sweet) flower ceremony.
