Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
There’s never a dull a moment for the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, at least when it comes to legal messes and the like. Although the latest legal issues may not be enough to keep the show interesting for the upcoming season, IF there is an upcoming season at all. We have all the latest news bits – including some speculation on the state of the show and/or storylines of season 9.
Even though Danielle Staub’s engagement to Marty Caffrey got cut from the regular season Real Housewives of New Jersey episodes, it did make the cut for the Secrets Revealed special episode. In that same episode, Danielle shared that her former enemy Teresa Giudice would be one of her maids of honor (along with her two daughters), Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs will serve as bridesmaids, and she’s expecting to have 12 people in her bridal party.
With several cast members in this wedding, it is not out of reach for Danielle to have a televised wedding. Personally, I would prefer to see the bachelorette party, but I guess we will have to see if Danielle even gets full-time status next season. Nevertheless, I would love to watch Teresa giving a maid of honor speech. Maybe she can incorporate her infamous rant about Danielle “getting engaged nineteen times” from her Season 1 table flip and just bring this all full circle.
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?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
Even though Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just ended, there is still a lot of
shit to talk loose ends to wrap up. This is especially true since there are rumors that original cast members Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita might return to the show for Season 9.
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 Lesseps didn’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.
Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped and there are already rumors about next year’s cast. There is a lot of speculation that original cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo will return to the show which would be very interesting considering their contentious relationships with Teresa Giudice. Plus fellow OG Danielle Staub is back on the scene these days so there is plenty of potential for drama.
Teresa was asked about the possibility of Jacqueline and Caroline coming back and she hurled some harsh insults their way. Now Jacqueline’s daughter (and Caroline’s niece) Ashlee Holmes is firing back.
Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.
Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.
