We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.
The war between Siggy Flicker and
her ego everyone else on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has reached a boiling point. And Margaret Josephs, once again, finds herself on the receiving end of Siggy’s latest barbs – this time about being anti-Semitic. Thus, the drama that has gone well beyond cake-throwing, heading now into straight up character assassination (and, dare we say, defamation?) territory.
Margaret visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to dish on the latest drama between Siggy and her. Asked to briefly describe this season of RHONJ, Margaret says, “Good, bad, ugly, epic, and – amazing!” When asked who she’s pissed off so far this season, Margaret does not mince words: “Soggy and Dolores.” Yup. That just about sums it up!
This week in reality star photos we have Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Kristen Doute attending the premiere of Pitch Perfect 3 in Hollywood, along with Scheana Marie, Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval.
Teresa Giudice participated in a meet & greet event, accompanied by two Marines Staff Sergeants, the ‘Sleigh’ A Toys for Tots Event at Valanni in Philadelphia.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid was photographed out in NYC as she made the rounds to promote her new reality show. Her former co-star, Lisa Vanderpump, did a little promo work of her own, talking RHOBH on Extra! in L.A.

Whether you love Kim DePaola or love to hate her, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have to admit that she makes good TV. Her best friendship turned rivalry with Teresa Giudice has blessed us all with some epic Posche fashion show encounters over the years.
This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim
stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.
Siggy called out Margaret Josephs for referencing Hitler and accused her of being anti-Semitic. Danielle Staub felt excluded from the
scene argument and dismissed so she threw a glass in the middle of her screaming match with Siggy. Worst of all, it looks like they left before anyone got to eat food at that Italian restaurant.
Our apologies, Italy. Please don’t judge us based on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey visiting your fair country! As the ladies storm into Milan, breaking glasses and acting like a$$es, Danielle Staub finally goes, well…Danielle Staub on everyone. Having no more stale cake to metaphorically drag around, Siggy Flicker decides it’s time to up the ante by calling out Margaret Josephs on her Hitler remarks. Dolores Catania tries to ride the very sharp fence of loyalty to Teresa Giudice and Siggy, while Melissa Gorga pretends to be an entrepreneur as she scours the fashion houses of Milan for feather boas and plunging necklines. Envy needs some sh*t on its shelves, after all.
After packing montages where everyone discusses what an epic disaster the trip is bound to be, we cut to the ladies landing in Italy in one piece. Marge is just glad no one has breathed a word about the Posche fashion show, but Melissa thinks it’s nuts that no one’s discussing the elephant – or in Kim DePaola’s case, the leathery lizard – in the room. In the van on the way to their hotel, Dolores asks what the agenda is? Ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Beyonce and get in Formation! The teams shall be: Siggy/Dolores, Margaret/Melissa, and Teresa/Danielle. It will be a six-women-enter-five-women-leave situation, a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. (Except set in a swag hotel rather than a dusty mosh pit.)
She may be trying to leave her tarnished reputation behind on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, but Danielle Staub still has plenty of baggage from the old days weighing her down. Danielle recently described this tough period in her life on Amy Phillips’ SiriusXM show, claiming that Caroline Manzo and her family systematically harassed her so relentlessly after the infamous Teresa Giudice table flip, she had to move out of town.
“There was everything from bullying my children behind the scenes – remember, there were eleven of the Lauritas and all of them had children as well,” says Danielle, whose girls were “terrified” of the backlash they received at school. Caroline, who was originally a Laurita (along with sister Dina Manzo and brother Chris Laurita), was likely the ringleader of the harassment, according to Danielle.
Like rhinestone cowgirls, The Real Housewives Of New Jersey formed a posse and sought street justice at the Posche Fashion Show. Ahh. It feels like old home week! That warm holiday spirit just fills the air when grown women decide to throw things at each other by way of Kim DePaola’s annual event honoring her strip mall boutique. While Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went head to head with Kim, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania stood by, hoping not to get grazed by an airborne chair/glass/plate/flat screen TV.
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.
