Last year, fans were living for Margaret Josephs’ and Danielle Staub’s friendship. That’s about to change with the current Real Housewives of New Jersey season. There’s some obvious friction between the two of them. Will the fans pick sides? Or will the viewers be able to love them both?
Only time will tell. Two episodes in, the viewers haven’t witnessed outright drama between Margaret and Danielle, but there has been plenty of shade and tension. Margaret discussed the situation with Andy Cohen during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
At Melissa Gorga’s house, Jackie Goldschneider shows up and talks about how hard it is to be parents of twins. Jackie writes about parenting and her husband works in finance. Melissa talks about her improved relationship with Teresa Guidice. Foreshadowing much?
Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers “met” Jackie Goldschneider during the Season 9 premiere episode. Margaret Josephs introduced Jackie to the cast. She got along with Melissa Gorga right away. It was clear immediately that Jackie, Margaret, and Melissa will end up as a trio this season.
Well, maybe I have some outside confirmation of that aside from the episode itself. The social media posts and interview quotes make it clear that these three are on the same page this season. At least for the most part. The same can’t be said for Jackie and other cast members. She stayed out of the drama during her first episode, but it’s coming. Of course.
Apparently, Marty listed their New Jersey mansion for sale, and didn’t tell his wife. Poor Danielle learned the news from a friend’s phone call.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey has just returned for Season 9. There’s still some lingering drama between Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub. Dolores isn’t ready to forgive and forget after Danielle claimed that Dolores made some controversial comments about Teresa Giudice last season. Danielle stated that Dolores said that Teresa “doesn’t care about anyone or anything more than money.” Ouch!
Real Housewives of New Jersey has blessed the fandom with some pretty epic freakouts over the years. For the most part we have OG cast member Teresa Giudice to thank for these iconic moments. Her table flip during the season one finale put the show on the map. That is one of the most legendary scenes in reality TV history, not just on a Real Housewives show.
There’s more where that came from, at least according to Dolores Catania. Of course every reality TV star promises an “epic season” when promoting the new episodes, but Dolores said something more specific. Well, it’s still a relatively vague statement, but at least she’s not just pulling that textbook move of describing every single season as “epic” when we all know that’s not possible.
Danielle was talking to anyone who would listen about Dolores Catania’s ex-husband/current roomie Frank Catania getting disbarred. Danielle’s bridesmaids Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice seemed overwhelmed by her wedding planning demands. Not much happened, but the are laying the groundwork for future drama. Plus they threw two new girls in the mix, which has to really sting for Danielle. This is her second season as a “Friend of the Housewives,” yet Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin are full-time cast members.
