Ever since Andy Cohen announced a special episode of Watch What Happens Live featuring the kids of Housewives, there’s been drama. The show will feature Brielle Biermann, Riley BurrussNoelle Robinson and Kairo Whitfield from the Real Housewives of Atlanta Frankie Catania, Gia Giudice and Albie & Chris Manzo from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Also, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Briana Culberson and Shane Keough and Real Housewives of New York’s Victoria de Lesseps and Avery Singer will be thrown in the mix. And last but not least, newbie Brooks Marks from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will be there too. So there’s definitely a variety of old and new, with plenty of OGs making a return. 

But apparently, some of the wives were not happy that their kids were left off the list and made a call to Daddy Andy to complain. Andy said it was someone with daughters, which removes NeNe Leakes from the suspect list (even though she would’ve been a good contender). It was a bit of a red flag that no Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kids were featured, but Lisa Rinna totally owned it and admitted it wasn’t her calling the network. We know that her daughters Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin are busy working on becoming the next Kardashians anyway.

Margaret Josephs Real Housewives Of New Jersey

While Margaret Josephs is past her days of feuding with Danielle Staub and throwing her ex-husband in the pool on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, she has a new enemy in town. This season, Jennifer Aydin and the Marge have been going at it, throwing low-blows back and forth at each other. Jennifer is a ride-or-die to Teresa Giudice, while Margaret tries to hold Tre accountable. The two have never really gotten along, but this season is a whole new level. 

And apparently, Jennifer Aydin isn’t the only Jen that Marge has some opinions about. On a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Marge gave her feelings about the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And particularly, what she thinks about Jen Shah’s recent arrest for her alleged involvement in a telemarketing scheme that targetted the elderly. She and her assistant Stuart Smith are facing federal fraud and money laundering charges, which hold a 30-year maximum prison sentence.

This season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is on fire. Teresa Giudice had a pool party, where the guests played tequila pong in the pool. RHONJ co-star Jennifer Aydin really enjoyed that game. Teresa’s marriage to Joe Giudice is over, and she is moving on. And hitting on “pool boy” and her brother Joe Gorga’s best friend, Tony Delorenzo.

But Teresa is still creating drama. During the RHONJ Season 11 premiere, she attended Evan Goldschneider’s birthday party. Jackie Goldschneider was so excited to give her a husband a party. So, what did Teresa bring? The rumor that Evan is unfaithful. I’m sure that Jackie would have preferred some sprinkle cookies.

Margaret Josephs Real Housewives Of New Jersey

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Margaret Josephs is the gift that keeps on giving. She’s unapologetically glamorous and down to earth at the same time, even when she’s throwing people into pools. 

One of the reasons we love the Marge the most is because she keeps it real. And while people like to give her flack for plastic surgery, which she’s always open about, she recently revealed a secret about her beauty routine that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves. 

Jennifer Aydin Real Housewives Of New Jersey

What a trip it’s been so far for the Real Housewives of New Jersey in Lake George! Jackie Goldschneider’s absence is obvious, but they’re making the most of it. Teresa Giudice has been on a rampage since the trip began because of the analogy about her daughter Gia Giudice. To insinuate Gia uses drugs in any capacity was wrong, but Teresa set all of this in motion. It’s difficult to feel sorry for someone who starts fires and then cries about it.

Another issue brewing is the tea brought to Jennifer Aydin by Michelle Pais. Hearing that Joe Gorga might owe tens of thousands of dollars was a megawatt rumor to take in. Can Melissa Gorga

handle hearing something like this without blaming Jennifer for being the messenger? Their relationship is just now getting to a place of civility and all of that could be threatened by these rumors?

Margaret reacts to Danielle’s claims that she was the source of the Evan cheating rumors

Who had a solid Jackie Goldschneider story line on their season 11 Real Housewives of New Jersey bingo card this year? No seriously. Any of you? I think we can all agree that Teresa Giudice’s brilliant plan to blatantly gossip about Jackie and Evan Goldschneider on camera has  massively backfired. She’s essentially cemented Jackie into the season, so long as she’s willing to stick it out and film. Some people think a producer actually gave Teresa this story for this exact drama to play out. Others are saying Tre was willing to believe stray Insta-DMs, and that’s why she didn’t want to admit her source. I happen to think she just forgot how the last 15 years of Housewives have worked and made up a lie. Maybe it’s a combination of all three?

In any event, it’s time we address one major elephant in the room! Margaret Joseph’s husband, Joe Benigno, admitted that he has heard the same rumor! He went so far as to list the women working in his house with The Marge “every day” as the source. This was peak cringe and possibly even incriminating.

Dolores Catania Real Housewives Of New Jersey

It could have been really interesting to have Dolores Catania and Dina Manzo on Real Housewives of New Jersey at the same time. They’re both close with Teresa Giudice. Dolores is close with Dina’s estranged sister Caroline Manzo, who Teresa can’t stand.

The Manzo ladies in the mix with Dolores could have blessed us all with some fiery arguments, especially since Dolores is not a fan of Dina’s.

Teresa Depressed

As Jackie Goldschneider said during the premiere episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11, Teresa Giudice has had a rough decade. Unfortunately, Teresa lost a lot of sympathy from viewers when she started spreading cheating claims about Jackie’s husband.

Prior to all that, she was just having fun on the show… for the first two seasons anyway. In Season 3, her family members Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile joined the show without telling her. They feuded for years. Then, she and her now-ex-husband Joe Giudice served back-to-back jail stints. Her mother passed away. Joe Giudice got deported. Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father died. She’s definitely had a lot going on, in the public eye, while raising four daughters.
