Real Housewives of New Jersey

Since he’s spending Christmas in the slammer, Joe Giudice decided to give Teresa Giudice a gift that was not purchased at the prison commissary – he wrote a song to celebrate their 17 years of marriage together.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star dreamed of John Legend crooning his love song and surprising Teresa with it while he was behind bars. Playing Santa Clause, Andy Cohen made Joe’s dream come true when he begged John to do an impromptu performance of the ballad on Watch What Happens Live last night.

Ashlee Holmes

Let’s give props where they’re due –  Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes has come a long way from being the rebellious teen we saw during the early days of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Ashlee is now a certified makeup artist, a new mom, and an engaged woman. Not only that, but she recently announced she has two new ventures in the works: a bridal business and a beauty blog. Considering Ashlee is engaged, she is probably doing a lot of wedding research, so it makes sense to think she is in the know when it comes to all things bride.

Ashlee Holmes and Cameron Hendrix Malleo

When Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes announced earlier this year that she was expecting her first child with her fiance, Pete Malleo, many Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers wondered how the once bratty, self-centered teen would be as a mom. Well, according to Chris Laurita, she’s been “absolutely amazing.”

About her “amazing” transformation, Chris shared, “I cannot believe how much she has matured and what a great mother she is. After some of our challenges and struggles with her through the years – and a lot of people have seen that on TV – it kind of catapulted her into being an adult and a very responsible one at that. She’s very, very, very attentive with her son.”

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY --

Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey might be over, but Teresa Giudice’s beef with Jacqueline Laurita is not. In her blog this week, Teresa claims that she will never rekindle her friendship with Jacqueline, and claims that most of the drama surrounding their falling out happened off camera.

An exhausted Teresa reflects on the season first: “I can tell you that for me personally, this was a very emotional season, and I am happy to have it behind me.”

RHONJ-Group-Hug

To be honest, I really don’t get what Siggy Flicker expected to get out of being a cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s all about being the peacemaker, but that is not what we want from this show.

Nevertheless, I am not surprised that Siggy requested for the ladies to come in for group hug at the end of the reunion. I have no idea if she and Dolores Catania are going to be back next season, since they didn’t really contribute to the story lines, but they’re capitalizing on Housewives experience while they can and they want to do public appearances – together – of course.

No one saw the truce between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga coming. They absolutely hated each for many seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, but now they seem to be a solid united front. A lot of people (mainly Jacqueline Laurita) have questioned the authenticity of their alliance, but the sisters-in-law have been insistent that their relationship is genuine and strong.

This was very clear during the reunion since the two sat on the same couch and went to bat for each other against Jacqueline. The reunion ended with the whole cast engaging in a group hug after a promise to be peaceful in the future. It seems far-fetched that a show centered around controversy between women will actually have women who are moving forward on peaceful terms, but Melissa seems very committed to that – at least when it comes to her relationship with Teresa. Her relationship with Jacqueline is a whole other story.

Teresa Vs. Jacqueline

As someone who has written about the exploits and shenanigans of Real Housewives for many moons, Real Housewives Of New Jersey is the only show which leaves me emotionally exhausted.

On one level, it’s a nod to their ability to remain raw in front of the cameras, years after years of doom and gloom fighting. However, on the other side, their lack of self-awareness means season after season after season someone – Teresa Giudice, usually – is gonna be accused of a maelstrom of denial that the other ladies have no idea they are also wallowing in. So sometimes you need 5 Xanax – maybe 10! – to get through it.
