Real Housewives of New Jersey

Melissa defends herself against Kim D's accusations

As a fan, I was really living for the Real Housewives of New Jersey trip to Vermont. Ever since I saw the trailer for this season, I have been looking forward to the Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga vs. Jacqueline Laurita screaming match, which I’m hoping will be featured in the next episode (FINALLY).

This trip had to be pretty hellish to go on – especially for someone like Siggy Flicker, who goes out of her way to be on good terms with everyone in the cast. That itself has to be a difficult task, but in the middle of the Jacqueline-centered madness, I imagine that Siggy had to feel beyond awkward.


Dolores Catania

The reunion episodes are usually pretty epic on Real Housewives of New Jersey, so I don’t blame Dolores Catania for being nervous before she films her first one. Apparently she is so nervous that she is thinking ahead – and I’m not just talking about what she plans to say, she is also doing whatever she can to look her best and that includes getting a cosmetic procedure on her booty.

That seems like a lot of effort considering that she is going to be sitting the entire time – unless Dolores breaks out of character and decides to get up and storm off. Not only that, but the ladies usually wear long dresses so I’m really not seeing the need to get any kind of procedure specifically to film this reunion, but it could just be more of a confidence boost type of thing for all I know. She opened up about her reunion trepidation and why she decided to fix (what she perceives to be) problem areas before the ladies get together to film.


Real Housewives of New Jersey recap Vermont

To Vermont we go! To Vermont we go… You can take the girls out of Jersey but you can’t take the Real Housewives Of New Jersey out of the girls! Even if you put them in big giant snow boots and plain old terry cloth bathrobes. Last night also signified the return of Kim D (for Desperate!), which in my book is always a good thing! Run on with the big boys, Kim, run on!

Melissa Gorga has lofty ideas to turn the trip to Vermont into one last relaxing weekend for Teresa Giudice before Joe goes to prison and Teresa becomes a single mom. Melissa even invited Teresa’s close friends Robyn and Christina. Unfortunately, Teresa’s girls weekend is beset by problems from the get-go. Two of those problems are named Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pieri.



On tonight’s Watch What Happens Live, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita shades Melissa Gorga, dishes on the drama in Vermont, and so much more!

Jacqueline starts off giving her take on Michael Rapaport calling her vicious, “I’m glad he’s such a fan of the show and I hope he keeps watching and supporting the show. I think all of us have been vicious on the show. And Michael, I think you’ve been a little vicious yourself.”

Jacqueline loses it in Vermont

Tonight Real Housewives Of New Jersey takes their sorry excuse of a cast trip (thanks Teresa Giudice!) and heads to Vermont for a girls weekend.

Luckily, they don’t have to go far from home to explode into some major drama! Ostensibly the trip is supposed to be a relaxing last hurrah for Teresa before Joe heads to prison and she becomes a single mom, but you know they invited Jacqueline Laurita so…


Teresa Giudice celebrates Audriana Giudice's birthday

There’s no better way to rinse off the “ick” from a long week of reality TV news (read: adults acting ridiculously) than with a new batch of cute family pictures! (Oh, and with some polls! I mean, who doesn’t love a poll?!)

Above: Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice shared, “Happy Birthday to my baby Audriana! Can’t believe she’s 7! I love you! Celebrating at American Girl in the city! #americangirl #americangirldoll”

Below you’ll find more family pictures from Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska, Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Heather Dubrow, Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, Little Women: LA star Terra Jole, Southern Charm‘s Kathryn Dennis, and more.


Teresa Giudice

I know many are criticizing Teresa Giudice for not wanting a relationship with her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. Plus, she was super cold when they showed up at the book signing. Teresa can be polarizing, but it does seem like she has a legitimate reason to not want to be around Rosie and Kathy.

Teresa has a ton going on right now – she is basically a single mom to her four daughters since Joe Giudice is in prison. She’s trying hard to hustle and provide for her family. And Teresa only wants to be a part of situations that are positive. So, if she doesn’t view interacting with her cousins as positive, that makes sense. Tre also got more specific about what Kathy and Rosie did (and didn’t do) to offend her so greatly.


Ashlee gets engaged

As happy as I am for anyone getting engaged, I couldn’t help feeling a little underwhelmed watching Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes get proposed to by Pete Malleo on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

It seemed quick and I was very confused by the “I’m proud of you” line. It came off like it was blurted out and I didn’t feel the magic that I was expecting from the moment. Well, I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t feeling that part of the episode, since Ashlee critiqued it in a post on social media.
