There’s never a dull a moment for the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, at least when it comes to legal messes and the like. Although the latest legal issues may not be enough to keep the show interesting for the upcoming season, IF there is an upcoming season at all. We have all the latest news bits – including some speculation on the state of the show and/or storylines of season 9.
It’s tough coming on to a Real Housewives show, but Margaret Josephs definitely had a strong rookie season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Sure, she feuded with Siggy Flicker for most of it, but she definitely brought a lot of great things to the show as well.
Margaret’s mother Marge Sr. is a total gem and a half. She really deserves more screen time, or maybe they can just have the mother/daughter duo as full-time cast members. Aside from her adorable scenes with her mom, Margaret had some good moments with Siggy’s BFF Dolores Catania, and the queen of the show Teresa Giudice.
We’ve literally watched Teresa Giudice‘s daughters grow up on TV and to give us a reality check about how long we’ve been watching Real Housewives Of New Jersey
ruin people’s lives, Milania Giudice just celebrated her 12th birthday.
“Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl! Milania you light up every room you walk into, it’s never a dull moment with you & you are always the life of the party! You keep me laughing even when I don’t think I can, you are a sweet sensitive caring young woman, and I’m so lucky to be your mom! I love you to infinity and beyond,” Teresa gushed in an Instagram post to her now-tween daughter.
Ahead of yesterday’s Super Bowl game, Keeping up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner announced the arrival of her daughter. Kylie gave birth to her baby girl with Travis Scott on February 1st and shared a heartfelt message to her fans explaining why she kept her pregnancy a secret (and it wasn’t because she was Kim‘s surrogate as some speculated). She also shared a video of her pregnancy journey, featuring her close friends sharing their thoughts along the way. After watching the video, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo decided to weigh in with her two cents on a twenty year having a baby.
Kylie’s message to fans on Instagram was posted yesterday afternoon. She shared, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
Even though Danielle Staub’s engagement to Marty Caffrey got cut from the regular season Real Housewives of New Jersey episodes, it did make the cut for the Secrets Revealed special episode. In that same episode, Danielle shared that her former enemy Teresa Giudice would be one of her maids of honor (along with her two daughters), Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs will serve as bridesmaids, and she’s expecting to have 12 people in her bridal party.
With several cast members in this wedding, it is not out of reach for Danielle to have a televised wedding. Personally, I would prefer to see the bachelorette party, but I guess we will have to see if Danielle even gets full-time status next season. Nevertheless, I would love to watch Teresa giving a maid of honor speech. Maybe she can incorporate her infamous rant about Danielle “getting engaged nineteen times” from her Season 1 table flip and just bring this all full circle.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
Real Housewives of New Jersey is a rare show in the Real Housewives franchise because the side characters are just as vital as the actual Housewives. As the ladies have said Kim DePaola aka Kim D is a “cockroach” that just hasn’t gone away. She probably never will if she continues to get the newly zen Teresa Giudice so riled up every single time she is mentioned- let alone when she actually appears. It is prime TV- although a lot of people are getting sick of the chronically recycled stunt.
Then there are other side characters that make the show better in a positive way. One of those is Teresa’s third daughter, Milania Giudice. She always manages to steal the show, say what everyone is thinking, and bless us with the best meme material. Obviously Milania is just a child, but Teresa recently revealed that she weighed in on the feud with Kim D.
Even though Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just ended, there is still a lot of
shit to talk loose ends to wrap up. This is especially true since there are rumors that original cast members Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita might return to the show for Season 9.
If that does actually happen, how will that affect the rest of the cast? Will Danielle Staub remain a “Friend of the Housewives” or return to full-time status? New Jersey has never had more than five official Housewives in the cast, so it would be interesting to see who takes priority if either of those OG returns. The one thing that seems pretty solid is that the people want Margaret Josephs to return no matter what.
