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.
After giving the
actual other cast members storylines for three years in a row without being full-time on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub walked away. She waxed poetic about how it was truly the end, but no one really believed that, or at least I didn’t. I assumed she could be very easily swayed if they asked her to stir up drama for the right price.
However, since she recently went in on Andy Cohen, that is never going to happen. She called out his alleged partying habits, wondering how his parents and son feel about his supposed recreational activities. Now, she’s claiming he used her for a famous friend, his now-BFF Kelly Ripa.
For anyone hoping that Danielle Staub would return to Real Housewives of New Jersey to wreak havoc, that ship has sailed. Why do I say that?
Danielle recently dedicated an entire podcast episode to trashing Andy Cohen, the executive producer of the show, and the spokesperson for the Bravo network. She put the nail in her own coffin with this one.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Margaret Josephs has never been shy about discussing her cosmetic tweaks and updates. I’m assuming it’s one of the many things she got from her momma, Marge Senior. Let’s not forget back in the day when Marge got a facelift and had her son-in-law rub her feet over it. Bless.
The rest of the RHONJ cast, including children, have also been very open about sharing their surgeries. There’s Teresa Giudice, who had multiple boob jobs. Gia Giudice got her nose done and a procedure to reduce underarm sweating. Jeal. Jennifer Aydin even has a whole husband at home to do her surgical work. With the new season filming again, maybe it was time for Margaret to get some updates.
It’s like a story straight out of The Sopranos. On Tuesday (June 30), Tommy Manzo — ex-husband of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo — had been arrested for allegedly masterminding a hit job on her new husband David Cantin back in 2015.
One day after the federal indictment against Tommy became public, Caroline Manzo is breaking her silence on the sordid drama surrounding her sister and brother-in-law.
