Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jennifer Aydin just revealed that she has tested positive for coronavirus. She is not the first Bravolebrity to face this struggle. Andy Cohen tested positive, but has recovered and is reunited with his son Ben. Jim Edmonds tested positive for both coronavirus and pneumonia.
She got access to a test through her husband Bill Aydin, who is a plastic surgeon. She opened up about her experience after her social media followers kept asking her why she wasn’t posting as much as she normally did.
Last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. There was the altercation in a clothing boutique, courtesy of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub. Margaret poured water on Danielle’s head. Then Danielle dumped out the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle.
Before leaving the shop, Danielle grabbed Margaret’s ponytail and gave it a vicious yank. That looked incredibly painful. In the wildest moment of the RHONJ season, Danielle revealed to Melissa Gorga that Danielle’s bestie Teresa Giudice told Danielle to pull Margaret’s hair.
Cameran Eubanks is a bit of a mother hen to the rest of the cast, except for Patricia Altschul of course. She brought a sense of maturity to Southern Charm, not only in her professional life, but also in the dignified way she handled herself during all the cast conflicts. Cameran has not had a single slip since Season 1 as an original cast member.
Cameran dishes out a lot of support and is always available for her friends. Shep Rose and Craig Conover were often on the receiving end of her advice. Offscreen, Cameran is adopting the same role towards her community. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, Cameran has been using her celebrity to get aid to health care workers and also to advise the public on proper social distancing practices.
One of the saddest stories to come out of the Bravo family in a long time was the death of Teresa Giudice’s father, Giacinto Gorga. We all know him as the affectionately named “Nonno” from the show. Nonno passed away on April 3rd and most of his family has opened up their hearts and shared their grief on social media since then. Both Teresa and Joe Gorga’s kids posted loving thoughts and messages on Instagram. So did Joe Giudice, saying of his father-in-law, “Thank you for setting an example for us and my girls-you’re an exemplary example. We benefited from it every day.”
It’s going to be hard to watch Real Housewives of New Jersey without Nonno. Throughout the years, we’ve seen him as the center of his entire family. We even saw his grief when his beloved wife, Antonia Goga died back in 2017. I will never forget watching Nonno cry over missing his wife. But Nonno gave us so many good times on the show and it’s clear that it’s not just his family that will miss him.
90 Day Fiance star Annie Suwanhad a difficult time when she first moved to the United States to marry David Toborowsky. David was broke and teetering on the edge of being homeless. When they had to downsize to a friend’s warehouse apartment, Annie mourned the loss of a functioning kitchen. It took some time, but David was able to restart financially. The two were able to build a life and home together.
It turns out that Annie is an amazing cook. And she showcased her delicious dishes on 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk. But her resourcefulness doesn’t end there. Annie is also adept at sewing. And she is using her skill set to help out during the coronavirus crisis, sewing masks and sending them to those in need for free.
On April 3, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga shared that their father, Giacinto Gorga, passed away. The lovable man became a paternal figure for Joe and Teresa’s friends and even the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers.
Joe and Teresa’s kids always called Giacinto “Nonno,” which is the Italian word for “grandfather.” Even the RHONJ viewers have affectionately referred to him as “Nonno” throughout the years. Aside from the obvious sadness for the Giudice and Gorga family members, there’s all an additional hurdle during this time period. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, people are not allowed to partake in large gatherings. Of course, there’s a major risk of spreading and contracting the virus.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin has weathered some monumental changes in the past couple of years. In January of 2018, Jill’s beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, died after a long battle with cancer. Bobby was a fan favorite on the show.
About six months after Bobby’s passing, Jill started dating Gary Brody. The duo bonded over their mutual love of tennis.
The drama between Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds, and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jim Edmonds, rolls on. The couple’s messy split in the wake of the former professional baseball player’s cheating scandal led to a custody battle over their three-year-old daughter and twin two-year-old sons.
The most recent custody dispute occurred in mid-March when Meghan traveled with the children from St. Louis to Los Angeles without telling Jim. According to Meghan’s rep, the trip was approved by a judge. Allegedly, their daughter Aspen also had a fever during the time of the custody exchange. Wow–that is scary.
