It was the analogy heard round the Bravo world! For anyone not watching Real Housewives of New Jersey (which, why?) – Teresa Giudice kicked off this new season by reigniting her feud with Jackie Goldschneider. Tre, famous for holding grudges, burst into the opening party scene at Jackie’s house, ready to play with an unfounded rumor about Evan Goldschneider cheating on Jackie. Did I mention it was his birthday party?
None of the women were having it. That is, aside from Jennifer Aydin, who must have a clause in her contract about defending Teresa at all costs. Margaret Josephs had Tre and Jackie over the next day to clear the air. It did not go well. Jackie, somehow forgetting her audience, made up “the worst analogy ever” about Gia Giudice to make a point to Tre. The analogy bothered a lot of people, including Real Housewives of New York’s Dorinda Medley, who called out Jackie directly on Twitter for being the “lowest of the lowest.” Now, Jackie’s responding.
We are so used to seeing the party time versions of the Real Housewives Of New York ladies. Even their dark shit is related to a constant drive to keep up socially. A pandemic couldn’t stop Ramona Singer who has been spotted partying (maskless) more than I care to count. It’s not often we see the reserved side of these New Yorkers. Don’t get me wrong. I love this cast and find them to be some of the most authentic, even if they are still some of the most kooky.
Leah McSweeney, who is known to be quite blunt, is bringing the softer side to RHONY recently. After Ramona outted Leah’s bipolar disorder, she was basically forced to share this part of her life with the world. On someone else’s schedule no less. Lucky for us, she’s never been one to shy away from telling it like it is.
During BravoCon, Andy Cohen had the Bravolebrities attempt to settle their feuds with people from different shows. Ramona Singer had beef with Vicki Gunvalson, Dolores Catania, and Gizelle Bryant (who Ramona kicked out of a photo). Of course, Ramona didn’t actually resolve anything with any of those people.
And they’re far from the only reality TV stars who have been offended by the Real Housewives of New York OG. Margaret Josephs is not a fan of Ramona’s either. And, well, quite honestly, the list of Ramona’s enemies goes on and on. And on.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel sounds like she isn’t planning on returning to the franchise for a third time. In August of 2019, she announced that she was leaving RHONY. And Bethenny made it clear that she didn’t enjoy filming the show.
Then we have Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Lisa Barlow. Like Bethenny, Lisa is a strong woman and entrepreneur. Lisa said that the most common misunderstanding about her is that “I’m a bitch.” She clarified, “I’m not a bitch. I have a backbone.”
Real Housewives of New Jersey is back! That Season 11 premiere episode was everything we wanted and more. Of course, the big story involved Teresa Giudice spreading cheating rumors about Jackie Goldschneider’s husband Evan Goldschneider. Then, Jackie mentioned Gia Giudice “snorting coke in the bathroom at parties” as an “analogy” and all hell broke loose.
However, other revelations were shared during the episode too. Dolores Catania shared her latest plastic surgery results with her ex-husband Frank Catania and her current boyfriend David Principe. David, who is a doctor, wasn’t happy with her getting elective surgery. She also never told him she was getting anything done until the night before. Dolores clapped back about making her own decisions about her own body. And now, Real Housewives of New York star Leah McSweeney is speaking out, taking up for Dolores, who she says is “the hottest bitch I’ve ever seen.”
That Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere was nothing short of electric. For some reason, Teresa Giudice thought it was a good idea to spread gossip about Evan Goldschneider cheating on Jackie Goldschneider at Evan’s birthday party…. in front of a camera crew.
Jackie was understandably upset about this. So, they met up at Margaret Josephs‘ house since it’s a “neutral location.” Well, the conversation went off the rails. Teresa said the “c” word too many times to count. Jackie said Teresa is jealous of her for living the life that Teresa wants. Oh, and Jackie mentioned Gia Giudice “doing coke in the bathroom at parties.” Now, she’s saying it’s an analogy that she used to prove her point, but isn’t that debatably worse?
In October 2020, the news broke that Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon split up after two years together. Other than that update, there didn’t seem to be much more to it. There were no rumblings of drama or scandal of any kind.
She even insisted, “not everything has to end badly.” Well, apparently, the romance didn’t actually “end” after all. Or if it did, it wasn’t over for long.
