Whether you loved her or hated her, Jacqueline Laurita was the main source of drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey last year. Without her antics, there would have been nothing to tweet about and nothing for the ladies to argue about at the reunion. Sure, it was tough to watch most of the time, but she at least gave the fans something to have an opinion about… even if your opinion wasn’t positive.
Nevertheless, even the most die hard fans of the show have to admit that it was in a real rut last season so it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Jacqueline is out of the picture.
Out of all of the shows in the Real Housewives franchise, the New Jersey one is definitely the one with the biggest focus on family time. Not only is this evident from watching the show, but it’s also clear if you follow any of the cast members on social media. They are always with their kids and extended family members.
Melissa Gorga, Joe Gorga, and their adorable (and always well-behaved) kids look like they had a blast at Melissa’s cousin’s wedding. And of course they all looked great while doing so.
It’s good to be Melissa Gorga these days. If you follow her on Instagram, it seems like she is having the summer of her life with beach vacation after beach vacation. I do not blame her though, I feel like anyone would need a few beach trips to recover after filming a Real Housewives of New Jersey season.
Unfortunately, the RHONJviewers never get to see these fun, family beach trips on the show. That’s probably because they don’t provide any drama, but they sure do look relaxing and Melissa’s bathing suits are dope (and are the perfect way to promote her store Envy, obviously).
