Jennifer Aydin is not off to a good start on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Ever since Margaret Josephs let her know she was aware of Bill Aydin’s past cheating, things quickly spiraled out of control. Some fans think Marge is being cruel. Others think this is Jen’s payback for being so nasty to Margaret over the last few seasons. And constantly throwing her “perfect life” in everyone’s faces. Regardless of how you feel, disclosing this information on national television has real life consequences for Jennifer and her family.
Jennifer previously revealed that her 9-year-old daughter Olivia Aydin found out about the news on Tik Tok. Said Jennifer, “I sat her down and I kept my composure because I realized [my kids] will react to however Mommy’s acting. I put on a brave face and said, ‘Listen, Daddy did a bad thing. But that doesn’t mean that he’s a bad person. And when we love people, we forgive them when they make mistakes. And I’ve forgiven him and I’m OK.’ She wasn’t upset because I wasn’t upset.”
As for her 14-year-old, Gabby Aydin, Jennifer said she had a stronger reaction. She admitted, “My Gabriella, she was more crushed. She felt very betrayed and was angry for a bit but we got through that.” But unfortunately, the public knowledge of the matter followed her to school.
Jen recently tweeted, “Gabby’s guidance counselor called her into the office today to see if she was OK. I think she felt more embarrassed than anything. My kids are OK as long as they know their parents are OK. So,Please don’t ask them about this. Makes it easier.”
Twitter fans weren’t exactly empathetic in their responses. One commented, “Rather than post on Twitter for some type of empathy, and again bringing up your daughter in your husband’s terrible decision, why didn’t you privately address it with the teacher? You want this to silently go away, then why don’t you stay silent? JS.” Another added, “This is just another Jen Jedi mind game to get everyone to go after [Margaret]. To get everyone to say ‘see margret [sic], what you did to Jen’s poor poor children.’ Jen, stop humiliating your children. For the love of god.”
