It’s been a little under a year since Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped their final reunion episode. When we left the women, there were talks about the now infamous pony-tail pull between Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs. The incident sent ripples through the group, and essentially left a huge question mark for Marge and Teresa Giudice’s friendship.
The show reportedly began filming in July. The entire cast was said to be returning. In the meantime, Danielle kept the crazy coming with her accusations against Andy Cohen of all people. She also accused her long-time friend Teresa of living in a trailer during RHONJ filming. I’m guessing that means The Marge and Tre have buried their hatchet? Tre has never been great at keeping a middle ground. And the powerhouse in pigtails still isn’t over Danielle’s chaos, going so far as to call her a “virus”.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was Danielle Staub’s last stand, and she chose to go out with a bang. At a shopping event, after bickering with Margaret Josephs, Danielle gave Margaret’s ponytail a vicious pull. It was horrifying. None of the other RHONJ stars could understand why Teresa Giudice sided with Danielle.
Near the end of the season, Danielle revealed to Melissa Gorga that Teresa encouraged her to pull Margaret’s hair, saying “Do it. Do it.” It was a real shocker to find out that Teresa cheered on the attack. Of course, Teresa was already angry at Margaret for jokes about Teresa cheating with young guys.
Teresa Giudice is one of Bravo’s most famous stars. Not because she is an engaging public figure, who gifts the people with words of wisdom during trying moments. It’s mostly because she flipped a table and has done more time behind bars than Lucky Luciano. A few Real Housewives of New Jersey diehard fans still feel some type of way about Teresa. She was never particularly good at owning up to her crimes or being accountable for her attitude.
But Teresa hasn’t exactly had it easy. She raised four daughters with little help. She dealt with marriage infidelities. Law violations and extended camp stays proved to be too much for Teresa’s 20 year relationship with Joe Giudice. Once it was decided divorce was going to knock her traditional values to the wayside, Tre waded into the dating pool. Now that Teresa is boo’d up with Louie Ruelas, she wants folks to know she’s in no rush – so don’t go ordering those monogrammed tea towels just yet.
Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider have never truly been friends. From their argument about “controlling the husband” to Jackie and Margaret Josephs bringing up the “rumors” that Teresa was cheating on her estranged husband, they just never had a shot at being friends.
On top of that, Jackie was an instant Melissa Gorga soldier, which is never gonna fly with Teresa. Sure, Jackie and Teresa have had short spurts of getting along, but apparently, their issues were so bad that Jackie wasn’t on the cast trip to Lake George. Now, we may know why Jackie ditched the group vacation.
I really didn’t think it would come to this, but I miss Real Housewives of New Jersey. Don’t get me wrong, I like the franchise just fine. But this past season was a big nothing burger for me. Watching Danielle Staub try to claw her way back to relevance just doesn’t do it for me.
That said, I’m excited to see what the ladies are cooking up for the upcoming season. They’ve been filming and there might even be a new cast member. One person I’m excited to see back is Jackie Goldschneider. I know what you’re going to say – she’s boring. But I beg to differ. I think Jackie brings a realness to the show. And anyone who isn’t afraid of OG and untouchable housewife Teresa Giudice is ok in my book.
The filming for Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is underway! So far we know that Jackie Goldschneider has had at least SOME drama with Teresa Giudice. Jackie has unfollowed Tre on insta, and is notably absent from some cast trip photos. Ever-thirsty Danielle Staub has also been in the news lately for all kinds of batshit shenanigans. My favorite is her claiming Teresa lived in a trailer during Season 1. Honestly, I bet it was the worst decorated trailer on the block.
Even more bold, Danielle is saying that her meal ticket, Andy Cohen used her to become friends with Kelly Ripa. Yea. I’m so sure. Why don’t you just sit this one out Danielle and leave the RHONJ media machine to the professionals. Kelly has some important casting questions for Andy, and I need answers.
Who could ever forget the Real Housewives of New Jersey season one finale? Teresa Giudice flipped out at Danielle Staub, cursed her out for getting engaged nineteen times, called her a “prostitution whore,” and flipped the table. That moment stole the show, for sure. But let’s take a look back at the logistics behind that moment.
Teresa did all of that at her housewarming party…. that wasn’t even hosted at her home, or any home, for that matter. Instead, she hosted a housewarming party at a restaurant, which makes no sense at all, but everyone looked that over. Now, Danielle is spilling some tea and making some claims about Teresa’s season one life.
Danielle Staub has finally given up her dreams of being a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. After doing all the dirty work as a part-time cast member for three seasons, she announced her “retirement” from the series, which was pretty silly considering that she had zero friends in the cast. Obviously, she wasn’t going to film again, but that “choice” was hardly her own.
However, the show did resort to bringing in Danielle when the actual cast members weren’t generating enough drama, which seemingly meant that the door was always open for a Danielle Staub comeback, and by that I mean, an overly exploited and underpaid appearance or two. Welp, that ship has sailed. Danielle went in on Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen, calling out his alleged party habits in addition to claiming that Andy used her to become friends with Kelly Ripa.
