All feels right in the world now that Real Housewives of New Jersey is back on TV. The queen (Teresa Giudice) is back and the rest of the cast is pretty on point as well. The nice thing about New Jersey is that these ladies actually have history and ties outside of being cast on the same reality TV show. It is the only show in the franchise where the casting doesn’t seem forced.
With that said, the beef and friendships really run deep in this group. So I really live for it when the ladies speak out about the show and each other. Jacqueline Laurita and the new girls Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker all came together for an interview – and yes they talked about Teresa, obviously.
Teresa is out of prison, and from this point forward everything must go in a new direction. Say “new direction” fast and it sounds like “nude erection,” which encompassed about 3/4 of the things Teresa learned from “camp.” The other thing was not to be slutty with your your John Hancock. So, yeah, about those leopards and their spots…
First, Michael weighs in on current Real Housewives story lines. AboutTeresa Giudice‘s emotional return, he says, “Great TV. Her hair was fantastic – best hair line in the business.” As for Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s newbies, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, he loves them both. About a post-face lift Siggy showing up in bandages, Michael says, “This woman has balls.” He adds that Dolores is fantastic and has a beautiful family.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Well this took longer than I expected! After all, we’re already two episodes into the latest season of Real Housewives of New Jersey and this is the first time we’re hearing from Kim DePaola. Seriously? I expect more from you, Kim!
The infamous Garden State clinger and purveyor of the finest skin tight faux fur fashions has always been full of opinions, and there is certainly no love lost between her and Melissa Gorga. In fact, if possible, Kim despises Melissa even more this season, and she’s not going to keep quiet about it.
Last night Bravo aired their version of a reality TV awards show, The Bravos. Viewers have been able to vote for the past few weeks in categories like “Jumpsuit Achievement” and “The Queen of Shade.” The winners were announced last night, with Bravolebrities showing up at The Clubhouse in NYC and with Jenni Pulos at another venue over on the West Coast to collect their awards and to help give them away. Gia Giudice served as the Awards Girl on the East Coaster.
We have your full list of winners below, as well as a gallery of the best photos from the night.
Dolores Catania has been friends with the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast for many years, so I’m pretty surprised that she was not a part of the show sooner. It makes perfect sense for her to be a cast member since she actually knows everyone very well and it’s very organic for her to be around.
Other than the fact that Dolores knew all of the cast members before joining the show, we don’t know too much about Dolores yet. Thankfully she has opened up about her decision to join the show and her girl Teresa Giudice’s post-prison life.
As a Real Housewives of New Jersey super fan, I have been very happy for Teresa Giudice’s post-prison reincarnation and I have been hoping that she really learned a lesson when it comes to her finances and abiding by the law.
Well, apparently that is not the case because it looks like the queen of New Jersey has even more legal drama to deal with.
