It was only inevitable that Dolores Catania joined Real Housewives of New Jersey at some point. She had decades-long relationships with Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo, and Caroline Manzo long before the show even started filming.
If anything it would have made sense for her to be a part of the OG cast. Well, it turns out she actually was slated to be a full-time cast member on season one. However, she changed her mind and someone else was brought in to replace her.
For years, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have been invested in the Manzo/Laurita family members. We met Dina Manzo and Caroline Manzo during the show’s very first episode. They are sisters who were married to the Manzo brothers. Dina has since divorced and re-married.
Jacqueline Laurita was another OG RHONJ cast member. She is married to Caroline and Dina’s brother Chris Laurita. Dina and Caroline have been infamously estranged for years, but it’s unclear if they had been in contact recently because of a family tragedy. Chris, Dina, and Caroline’s father Joseph Laurita has passed away.
Just like most grandmas, Caroline Manzo loves posting photos of her granddaugter, Markie. However, the Real Housewives of New Jersey OG isn’t your average grandma. She has a lot of Instagram followers and some trolls in the comments section. Yes, even in response to an adorable photo of a toddler, people have something negative to say.
Caroline and her daughter Lauren Manzo have had enough of the criticism about their living situation during the coronavirus pandemic.
Buckle up for the second part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. On part one, Jennifer Aydin stole the show. She made the entire event revolve around herself. She found a way to insert herself into any and all conversations possible. Teresa Giudice has finally opened up about the issues in her marriage, so hopefully we learn more. There’s a lot more to that mess of a relationship than we are hearing.
Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider are all sick of Jennifer at this point. Expect more fireworks to go off during part two. She has bad blood with all three women and is on the warpath at this reunion. The biggest question mark in the episode is Danielle Staub. What impact is she going to have? What will her final act as a cast member of this show be? We won’t have to wait too long to find out.
Did anyone see this coming? Real Housewives of New Jersey fans were stunned by the news that former friends (and current enemies) Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were seen in a room…together. How did this happen?
Teresa has been dealing with her husband, Joe Giudice’s, deportation drama. An immigration judge ordered that Teresa’s husband be deported to Italy. Joe chose to leave ICE custody and go to Italy while awaiting the results of his final appeal. But now, Teresa and Joe have reportedly separated.
BravoCon might be over, but the post event drama is still burning hot. So many of your favorite Bravolebs were in attendance for this iconic event. From The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Vanderpump Rules. They were all there. However, if you were expecting a “moment” between Lisa Vanderpump and her former costars, it didn’t happen. How great would that have been though?
Lisa’s shocking exit from Real Housewives sent everyone into a frenzy. The woman some people have crowned as the Queen Housewife had enough and walked away. It’s been over a year since Lisa stopped filming with the other women, so maybe she’d be open to reconciliation. It turns out time does not heal all wounds. If you were hoping to see Lisa and Kyle Richards interact, you were majorly let down.
Not a lot of people are loosing sleep over the legal drama surrounding Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice. But there is one man in particular who is definitely not letting it bother him.
Bravo housewife wrangler, Andy Cohen, is absolving himself of any wrongdoing in the financial downfall, and subsequent incarceration, of Joe and Teresa. And I’d have to agree with him.
