The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Real Housewives of New Jersey fans should admire Danielle Staub’s hustle. Her fiasco wedding to Marty Caffrey was filmed for Season 9, even though Danielle was once again only a Friend of The Housewives. Jersey girls Teresa Giudice, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga were part of the bridal party, and witnesses to Danielle’s bridezilla demands.

The doomed wedding was quickly followed by an acrimonious divorce, which was finally settled in February of 2019. In what seems like record time, Danielle was not only dating, but back in a serious relationship. Maybe now Danielle can be upgraded to full-time Housewife?

Andy Cohen Reacts To Danielle Staub’s Recent Engagement

Andy Cohen has a dream. A dream that one day, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks will meet a man. And that man… will be royalty, y’all. Thankfully, that long shot dream of Andy’s might be coming true. Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub is no Cinderella. She’s no Sleeping Beauty. When I think of Snow White, Danielle definitely does not come to mind. But for Andy, she might be his only hope for a Jersey fairy-tale. Unless being thrown in a pool counts as happily ever after.

On the heels of a divorce from ex-husband, Marty Caffery, Danielle has met another man, and this guy has an impressive title! No, it isn’t Most Gullible Person Alive, although that would probably apply. This new relationship is enough to give Andy hope that one day the often-engaged housewife will go from Prostitution Whore Danielle to Duchess Danielle.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap:I’m not saying that Real Housewives of New Jersey is recycling old storylines and creating manufactured drama, but I’m not NOT going to say that. I guess it’s the curse of all of the long-running franchises, but sheesh! Joe Gorga, spend time with your dad. It will appease your sister Teresa Giudice. And she’ll go easier on your wife Melissa Gorga. However, what will become of your wife’s storyline if this happens? Also, newbies, stop trying so hard to be relevant. The pot stirring, the Chanel obsession, the article writing! Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are overachievers in this department. I guess they learned from watching the likes of Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub (except for the writing part). Exhausted, party of one here!

Back from Bimini, the women are easing back into their daily Jersey routines which includes coffee for Margaret Josephs and lots of screaming kids for the others. Dolores is still harping on ex-husband and roommate Frank Catania for omitting his whole “I got disbarred” conversation from their narrative. Across town, Jackie is lunching with Melissa who is stressing over the party she’s throwing for her son Joey’s first communion. Haven’t the Gorgas learned to keep their drama out of the church, especially where Joey is concerned? Jackie questions the status of Melissa and Tre’s relationship. Then, Melissa shares they two reconciled in Bimini. Jackie reveals that she’s sought the counsel of Dolores, but she’s not yet willing to extend the olive branch. Melissa hopes that Jackie will make her life easier by being the bigger person. Obviously, she knows she can’t count on Teresa for that!

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap

On last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey  Danielle Staub finally got her happily ever after…at least for a few months. The ladies wake up to the beauty of Bimini, and Teresa Giudice and brother Joe Gorga are finally getting along and bonding over some dumbbells. How appropriate! Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno are also in tropical bliss. Melissa Gorga has foregone the weights for tanning oil to prep for Danielle’s bride squad photo shoot. Everyone is still reeling from Danielle’s comments about soon-to-be husband’s Marty Cafferty’s children. Margaret warns Joe to tread lightly if the guys take Marty out for some pre-ceremony bro shenanigans. Teresa calls Dolores Catania who isn’t the least bit sad she’s not included in nemesis Danielle’s big day. After hearing the previous evening’s dinner drama, she wonders if Danielle will even make it down the aisle.

Danielle is micromanaging her photo shoot, and I feel terrible for her beautiful daughters. The former housewife is disappointed that her tribe of bridesmaids isn’t constantly at her beck and call. Marge is concerned about being a girl that loves cheese in a group of skinny Minnies, and Danielle is peeved when Margaret refuses to take off her lacy pants. Thankfully she’s distracted by her desire to have a Baywatch strut photo and begins screaming out orders for that.

Kyle-Richards-Kathy-Hilton-Kim-Richards-Christmas

Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.

After years of public tension, it seems like sisters Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, and Kathy Hilton are in a great place. They spent Christmas together as well.

Even though she’s on the outs with her stepchildren, Caitlyn Jenner went to Kim Kardashian’s Christmas party. Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian wore matching outfits with their daughters. Kyle Richards, and Faye Resnick, joined old friend Kris Jenner for a group photo.

As expected, plenty of reality TV stars wore matching Christmas pajamas. Bristol Palin coordinated pajamas with her kids. Additionally, Kameron Westcott and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave took part in the social media Christmas tradition as well.

Stassi Schroeder took her man Beau Clark to her hometown, New Orleans. Jax Taylor visited Brittany Cartwright’s family in Kentucky. California native Scheana Marie spent time with her family, which did include some matching pajamas.

Other reality stars celebrated their last Christmas before adding to their family. For instance, Porsha WilliamsPaola Mayfield, and Lauren Burnham showed off their baby bumps. Jersey Shore stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Deena Nicole Cortese shared baby bump pictures as well.

RHONJ-Margaret-Josephs

Last night we received a small reprieve from all the Gorga in-fighting on Real Housewives of New Jersey While Teresa Giudice still carries resentment for her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, she has honed on Melissa’s volunteer mouthpiece Jackie Goldschneider. In case you didn’t hear her the first fifteen times she said it, Jackie isn’t scared of Tre. Teresa isn’t without her own henchmen thanks to loyal Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub, whose diva demands are finally making the show watchable, IMHO. Margaret Josephs “can’t even” with the bridezilla, which sucks for her since she’s the Matron of Honor. I am digging on Marge, Junior this season, for sure!

Margaret is hosting a brunch on her Studio 54 set in hopes of bringing back those positive vibes from last season…or two seasons ago…or five…wait, she just wants croissants. Melissa and Jackie are stewing over Tre’s ridiculous claims that wives should control their husbands about all things non-penitentiary related. Tensions are running high as Teresa arrives. Dolores has her friend’s back, but she’s hoping for a drama-free event as she’s really enjoying Melissa these days. The women joke about Danielle’s stripper fueled journey to monogamy, and Dolores cringes over being in the same room with her nemesis.

RHONJ-Danielle-Staub

Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, we were reminded of why Danielle Staub is basically the worst – and that she’s truly in her element while on stage with men gyrating all over her. Since that’s exactly what the ladies served up for her bachelorette party, we got to see the many faces of Danielle go from full on rage to frightening glee all within a 30 minute timeframe. Even though Margaret Josephs was the ambassador of Danielle’s dreams, all she had to show for it at the end of the episode was a huge party planning bill and a chewing out.

Margaret was also put in charge of buying penis straws and dildos for Danielle’s big night. So we find her in the store looking for the “classy” items Danielle would approve of. Ahh…’twill be a night to remember! They shall celebrate Danielle’s last night of freedom in style before her marriage to Marty Caffrey, which will last approximately 4 seconds before restraining orders and divorce papers are filed. But who’s counting?

Danielle Staub’s Birthday Brunch With Her Family- Photos

After publicly admitting to difficulties in her marriage with Marty Caffrey, Danielle Staub was in need of some quality time with her family- especially for her birthday. Danielle and Marty just got married in May, yet there’s already major trouble.

He wasn’t at her masquerade themed birthday party Friday night at their home- or at the very least he wasn’t in any of the photos. Maybe he’s just not into the spotlight and he prefers being behind the camera instead of in the photographs? Then again, the brunch she had on Sunday with her family seemed like a a much more low key event that her new husband should have attended. Where was Marty?
