As for the new shows, oh boy, are there some surprises – Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel teaming up to scout, buy, and design amazing properties, Shep Rose looking for love, Ryan Serhant training sales agents and showing off his skills, and more. Check out the list of new shows below.
I can’t help having a little jealousy when it comes to the way the Real Housewives live their lives. Nevertheless, the one thing I don’t envy about being a Housewife is those group vacations. Sure, they’re (most likely) all paid for, but it just seems like way too much to handle. So I bet they love when they can go on trips with their family instead of their fellow cast members. I’m sure Melissa Gorga had a lot more fun hanging with her family than she did during the cast trip to Vermont last year.
Then again, I feel like any vacation would be more fun than that hellish trip. Melissa, Joe Gorga, and their well-behaved kids all went to Florida for Melissa’s family reunion. I’m assuming this vacation will make the show since the RHONJladies are all about the family time, but just in case it doesn’t- or if you just can’t wait for the next season, Melissa and Joe posted plenty of photos.
After the loss of her mother, and the usual stress of filming Real Housewives of New Jersey, I feel like Teresa Giudice could use some quality time with the family. And it looks like she and her adorable daughters are having a fun time on their Puerto Rico vacation. She also brought her father Giacinto Gorga along for the trip.
Teresa, Gia, Gabriella, Audriana – and the true star of RHONJ – Milania enjoyed lots of fun activities, including lounging on the beach, paddle boarding, jet skiing, and roasting s’mores. That definitely sounds more enjoyable than the drama-filled vacations with the actual cast members.
So naturally Kim did what all the reality stars and their sidekicks do: headed to social media. Kim let everyone know she spotted the copycat look immediately and she didn’t hold back her thoughts on the situation.
I always wonder what really happened when a Real Housewife says she is leaving a Real Housewives show “to pursue other opportunities” or some other vague statement about moving on. With some serious exceptions, I can’t imagine why anyone would quit a show with such a large platform, so I always find it tough to believe that any of these ladies leave of their own accord. Jacqueline Laurita came clean about why she will not be back on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
As a viewer, I am honestly not a fan of Jacqueline’s, but as a self-proclaimed reality TV expert, I feel like this show needs her around to provide opposition and controversy. Sure, I could do without the popcorn promotion and the plastic surgery testimonials, but without Jacqueline we are left watching a bunch of people who get along going on local trips and cooking Sunday dinners. Even the biggest Jacqueline haters have to admit that she does have a vital role on this show. Or at the very least she needs to be replaced with someone who has just as much (if not) more drama with the rest of the cast.
I thought Teresa Giudice put all her legal issues behind her, but that is not the case. A judge reinstated her lawsuit against her former bankruptcy attorney. Teresa believes that the lawyer’s inferior work is what landed her in prison for fraud.
I feel like if I were Teresa, I would just move forward and focus on my adorable kids, tone my body with yoga, and rack in the cash from Instagram posts. It’s also surprising that Teresa is pushing this since she refuses to acknowledge her time in jail “away” and this just bringing that all up again.
I have no idea how interesting these episodes will be since these four ladies all seem to get along well, but I guess we will find out soon enough. I just wish that Jacqueline Laurita or Danielle Staub were there to keep things interesting, but I don’t blame Melissa for wanting to celebrate her birthday in peace.
