At this point, I am just impatiently waiting for the drama to go down between Jacqueline Laurita and enemies turned best friendsTeresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. We all know that the harmony between Jacqueline and Teresa won’t last for long, so I’m ready for the good stuff to happen. In the mean time we have to sit around and watch Jacqueline try her best to be Teresa’s sidekick all while she makes passive aggressive digs about New Jersey’s queen.
Without a doubt, Jacqueline was pissed off when Teresa didn’t flip out on Siggy Flicker for bringing up the tabloid rumors about Joe Giudice’s alleged adultery – especially since it went horribly awry in 2011 when Jacqueline mentioned tabloid gossip. I didn’t buy it for a second when Jacqueline feigned that she was happy that Teresa had a calmer reaction. As per usual, Jacqueline found another way to throw Teresa under the bus so she can try to bring her down, even though it somehow never works. Jacqueline never makes an impact with her insults, but she still tries.
In the past few seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, I felt like Joe Gorga was a pretty lovable side character. He liked the camera way too much and got uncomfortably naked at random times, but he was still seemed like a good and humorous person.
But this season is not a good look for Joe, especially when it comes to his thoughts on Melissa Gorga opening up her clothing boutique Envy. Not only was he not down with the business idea, but he also seemed uncomfortable “watching” his own kids and sharing the home responsibilities with Melissa. I’m calling it now that Melissa will be bombarded with questions about this at the reunion, but for now it seems like Melissa is focusing on the bright side when it comes to her husband and her business.
I am so over hearing Jacqueline Laurita talk about her friendship with Teresa Giudice in the press. Don’t get me wrong, I am intrigued by the ups and downs in their relationship, but at this point it seems like Jacqueline’s paraphrasing her own comments and repeating the same thing over and over again.
We get it. You two were close. You were like sisters. There’s a bond there. You also hate Teresa now because you are jealous of her being the star. We haven’t seen any new drama between these two on the show yet, so maybe Jacqueline isn’t supposed to talk about that until it airs? That’s the only explanation I have for Jacqueline spewing out the same quotes over and over again.
Poison Gorga seems to be confused both about which century he’s living in and that his life is not a 1980’s movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. You guys, men with sprayed on muscles DO NOT take care of their own children – they are not babysitters!
I’m all for kumbaya and all that jazz, but I just feel so awkward watching Jacqueline Laurita go back and forth between talking shit about Teresa Giudice and trying to get sympathy talking about how she misses her. It is so blatantly obvious that Jacqueline wants Teresa to like her. It even seems like she’s more upset about not being Teresa’s BFF than whatever offense she alleges bothers her from years ago.
Her desperation is way too real. Plus, we all know how badly she needs to be on this show and it’s obviously way better to be a part of Real Housewives of New Jersey if you are in Teresa’s good graces. So I am not at all surprised that she put her pride aside and came crawling back to Teresa, but I am honestly a little shocked that she just showed up instead of scheduling a standard RHONJ-style sit down to be more dramatic. But then again, Teresa was on house arrest, so I guess she couldn’t exactly pull that move. At the very least, she could have called ahead of time.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

All feels right in the world now that Real Housewives of New Jersey is back on TV. The queen (Teresa Giudice) is back and the rest of the cast is pretty on point as well. The nice thing about New Jersey is that these ladies actually have history and ties outside of being cast on the same reality TV show. It is the only show in the franchise where the casting doesn’t seem forced.
With that said, the beef and friendships really run deep in this group. So I really live for it when the ladies speak out about the show and each other. Jacqueline Laurita and the new girls Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker all came together for an interview – and yes they talked about Teresa, obviously.
