The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: When Chairs Fly

Like rhinestone cowgirls, The Real Housewives Of New Jersey formed a posse and sought street justice at the Posche Fashion Show. Ahh. It feels like old home week! That warm holiday spirit just fills the air when grown women decide to throw things at each other by way of Kim DePaola’s annual event honoring her strip mall boutique. While Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went head to head with Kim, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania stood by, hoping not to get grazed by an airborne chair/glass/plate/flat screen TV.

But first, Margaret needs to redecorate her house. Interior designer Joyce comes over to take a look at the 1960s projection screen and ballrooms-turned-dining-turned-living-rooms. Joe the contractor is apparently not keeping up with Marge’s needs – at least outside of the bedroom. Marge and her mumu want changes NOW! Yes, there will be velvet on the walls! There will be bedazzled curtain rings! And Joyce promises it will be finished before Margaret returns from Italy in two weeks. Also, Margaret wants Joe to know about Kim D and all of her wily ways, as if Joe the contractor gives a flying fig about this phantom menace.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: A Retreat To Remember

I’ve yet to be disappointed by a single episode of this season’s Real Housewives of New Jersey.

While I’m pretty certain that I couldn’t be around Siggy Flicker for more than a few minutes in real life, I think Margaret Josephs is a straight up hoot who doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously and has infiltrated the group rather successfully. If her impersonation of Siggy wasn’t hilarious enough, her take on the first day of the retreat is just as good. Enjoy this throwback while you get ready for tonight’s latest Posche Fashion Show drama!

Danielle Staub Addresses Dolores Catania's Drug Accusations, Siggy Flicker's Hormone Pellets, & Love For Margaret Josephs

The drama escalated during the last episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Kim D made a cameo appearance to trash Teresa Giudice and promote her fashion show. The Teresa we used to know returned and she was screaming in a restaurant and chucking a glass. Just like old times!

Teresa couldn’t believe that Kim D was trashing her marriage (even though it’s a #TotalKimDMove) and she was miffed that Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker agreed to walk in the Posche fashion show. Now Teresa’s former nemesis-turned-bestie Danielle Staub has a lot to say about that and she’s calling out Siggy and Dolores on behalf of her girl Tre.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Reunion Seating Chart Revealed; Kim D Showing Up For Her First Reunion

The seating arrangement at Real Housewives reunion shows is a pretty big deal. Of course, host Andy Cohen is in the middle, but the couch the women get assigned to sit on say a lot. Usually it shows who’s on which side and the women with the most to say sit on either side of Andy.

The women next to Andy are usually cast members with the seniority or just the women who have most drama of the season. With that said, looking at the seating chart for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, does not make sense for a lot of reasons.

Teresa Giudice’s Father Giacinto Gorga Is In The Hospital

It has been another tough year for the Giudice/Gorga family. Now Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga’s father Giacinto Gorga is in the hospital.

This is sad news for the family and fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey who have adored Giacinto throughout his years of appearances.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Walking On Broken Glass

She’s managed to behave herself for long enough – now it’s time for Teresa Giudice to start breaking sh*t in restaurants again! This week on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Tre goes bananas when she hears Kim DePaola is spreading rumors about her rumored side piece. But her real issue is with Dolores Catania, who she claims didn’t defend her against the three-headed snake that is Kim D. While Siggy Flicker and Melissa Gorga come to a better place after a “healing” exercise about cake -(yesss! please let this be the frigging cake’s final gasp!) – Danielle Staub silently plans her next move against Dolores. As for Margaret Josephs? Well, she just continues to be kind of awesome.

We begin at Siggy’s hellish retreat, where she’s mimicking Margaret in a far inferior sketch than Marge just pulled off. No one is impressed. Furthermore, no one understands how this lame game is supposed to bring them closer together. Essentially, it’s like we’ve all died and gone to corporate retreat team building hell. But anyway, here we are. At least Siggy and Margaret get over the exercise fairly quickly, returning amicably to their spot on the wall of shame. But not so fast for Siggy! Get back in the ring, woman!

Joe And Melissa Gorga Vacation With Their Family In Mexico- PHOTOS

Anyone who had one too many awkward conversations with relatives on Thanksgiving needs to take a cue from the Gorga family and just get away from it all. Melissa Gorga, her husband Joe Gorga, their three kids, and Joe’s father Giacinto Gorga all spent the holiday together at a resort in Mexico. That sounds like the ideal Thanksgiving to me: no cooking, no cleaning, no nonsense.

They lounged in the sun, coordinated outfits, fished on a boat, and it looks like they had a way more relaxing Thanksgiving than I’ve ever had in my whole life. Thanksgiving on the beach definitely seems like the ideal way to celebrate the holiday.

Check out the photos of Melissa, Joe, and the rest of the family,  enjoying their vacation in Mexico. And just in case anyone was wondering where Melissa’s vacation outfits are from- rest assured, there are  a lot of tags and shout outs for Melissa’s store Envy, which is shocking to no one.

Hopefully you’ve all recovered from your turkey comas to get back onto the internet to see how all our reality star families celebrated Thanksgiving.

Above, Shannon Beador celebrated Thanksgiving without David. “Blessed with my amazing family! #3beautifuldaughters #sweetestdogever #grandmapatishere,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. “Hope that everyone has had a Happy Thanksgiving! Love having my mom in town! And a huge thank you for the very kind comments this week!”
