Pics or it didn’t happen- right? Or at least it seems like the case for most reality TV stars which does make sense since they do live out some of their biggest moments in front of a reality TV crew. So it’s not surprising that they shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup. This is especially true during the holiday season. It seems like almost everyone is getting into the holiday spirit these days.
Shocking news! Not everything we see on reality television is REAL! Okay, we already knew that, but in Melissa Gorga’s case, made-for-tv-drama is coming back to bite her in a very real way. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s former business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson, is filing suit against Melissa and Andy Cohen for besmirching her good name publicly. She’s hired hard-hitting lawyer Larry Klayman to handle the case.
Jackie, who opened Envy boutique with Melissa last year, parted ways with the reality star in January due to differences of opinion and clashing visions for the store’s direction, “specifically about Robinson’s desire to expand selection to accommodate shoppers who aren’t, say, a size 2,” according to the press release. Jackie and Melissa both signed legal paperwork to dissolve their partnership, but since then Melissa is reportedly fabricating a story that Jackie deceived her and actually “stole” her merchandise in the middle of the night. Not true, according to the lawyers!
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.
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!
Based on Siggy Flicker‘s weekend tweet-a-thon about her great hatred for Margaret Josephs, I’m guessing things got pretty intense at the Real Housewives Of New Jerseyreunion (did they film it earlier than usual or is the season really almost over?!). And not a pot puss orgasm good kind of intense (disclosure: I have never experienced this personally, I’m taking Margaret’s word for it!).
On last week’s episode, when everyone was arguing about the horrors of Kim D – who admittedly IS horrid (but really fabulously desperately amazing television if you’re into that sort of thing), unfortunately Margaret compared Kim D to Hitler when she said, “Siggy – Hitler woulda not killed me. Does that make him a good person?”
Teresa couldn’t believe that Kim D was trashing her marriage (even though it’s a #TotalKimDMove) and she was miffed that Dolores Cataniaand Siggy Flickeragreed 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.
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.
