“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.
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!
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.
Obviously RHOCwas supposed to be the lead-in show for Dallas since it is the original show in the franchise, but it just didn’t deliver the same level of drama that the Texas ladies blessed us with. Pretty much nothing happened all season and most of the women refused to film together. This served as cautionary tale for RHOD star LeeAnne Locken who has carried this show on her back for the past two seasons.
Danielle made that very clear when she threw shade (and even some direct insults) at Jacqueline, Caroline, and Kim on Watch What Happens Live last night. Believe it or not, she just kept it old school with her beef and there was not one Dolores Catania dig the entire episode. She’s probably saving those up for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taping.
