The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Reunion, Part Two

We made it. We lived through all 15 episodes of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and came out on the other side worn out, weary, and ready for a nice long break. Before rumors of cast shake ups for next season start swirling (as they most certainly will), let’s re-live the last gasps of this season’s wreckage.

In the second part of RHONJ’s Reunion, accusations are thrown like tables in the back room of a Manzo restaurant. Dolores Catania accuses Danielle Staub of being on drugs, Teresa Giudice (and, by association, Melissa Gorga) accuses Kim DePaola of being a White Walker madame (!!), Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs accuse each other of so much dirt, it’s beyond what any recap can handle. So – let’s just take a look at the highlights! Or lowlights?

Melissa Gorga Wants To Collaborate With Erika Jayne; Shares Where She Stands With Former Cast Mates Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, & Amber Marchese

There are few things that I love more than a Real Housewife attempting a music career. If the song is great, then that gives me another bop to listen to. If the song is terrible, it’s entertaining for a totally different reason. I will listen to it just as much (if not more). It’s really a win-win for the super fans like myself.

That’s why I miss Melissa Gorga’s early days on Real Housewives of New Jersey when she wanted to be a pop star and her husband built a recording studio in their basement. These days she is caught up with her clothing story Envy and all of that restaurant drama, but if she ever wanted to record another song, I would be all for it.

Jill Zarin and Bobby Zarin

Unfortunately Bobby Zarin lost his longtime battle with cancer. Everyone on Real Housewives of New York City and the fans at home have always had a great love and respect for Bobby. His wife, ex-RHONY star Jill Zarin has received some support from her fellow Real Housewives and she has been very open about that in the media.

Bravo even filmed the New York City Housewives coming together for Bobby’s memorial. Current Real Housewives of New York cast members Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley (along with her boyfriend John Mahdessian) attended the memorial. RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub were there as well to pay their respects to Bobby and support Jill.

Instagram Roundup: Kyle Richards, LeeAnne Locken, Kristen Doute, Jenelle Evans, & More!

It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.

Melissa Gorga Wants Chrissy Teigen To Replace Siggy Flicker On Real Housewives Of New Jersey

Now that Siggy Flicker has announced her exit from Real Housewives of New Jersey, someone else needs to fill her spot in the cast. Logically, it would make sense to bump up Danielle Staub’s part from a “Friend of the Housewives” to a full-time Real Housewife.

Just in case that’s not what happens, or if they promote Danielle and add a fresh face, Melissa Gorga has a suggestion for Siggy’s replacement: Bravo super fan Chrissy Teigen.

Even More Drama For Gorga’s Homemade Pizza & Pasta

It seems like there is a new news story related to the Gorga’s Homemade Pizza & Pasta every day and none of them are good. First of all, Joe Gorga taking Melissa Gorga out to lunch and then “surprising” her with the “news” that he bought that restaurant just seemed way too contrived.

Come to find out, Joe, Melissa, and Teresa Giudice didn’t even completely own the restaurant, which isn’t super shocking. They slapped their name on an existing restaurant in a “rebrand” for the perfect story line. Now they want their former business partners to drop the Gorga name from the restaurant and they have sent a cease-and-desist letter.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Reunion, Part One

Here we are at the finish line of a cuckoo season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In the spirit of Real Housewives Reunions past and present, we must pay homage to all of the fights, cake throws, and anti-Semitic slander that went down. Since we’ve already lived through it once, why not do it all over again? Warning: There are split screen throw downs and Release the gimp! moments in store (i.e., Kim D makes an appearance). It’s GO time!

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.

Caroline Manzo on Dina Manzo home invasion

The first two Real Housewives of New Jersey seasons were nothing short of iconic. Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and Caroline Manzo made up the perfect cast. Eventually RHONJ turned into the Teresa Giudice Show and Teresa turned against sisters-in-law Caroline and Jacqueline (and vice versa).

Now there is some chatter that Caroline and Jacqueline might return to  Real Housewives of New Jersey.
