It has been about 80 years since the last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you’ve been wondering what most of the cast has been up to during the RHONJ hiatus, you can ask any local New Jersey plastic surgeon. We might need name tags for the first few eps, until we figure out who everyone is.
The Season 11 trailer has dropped and it is full of drama… intrigue… and… so much hairspray. Thankfully Teresa “I’m Single And It Will Be Painfully Obvious” Giudice still has that gentle, lilting voice that could put you to sleep like a lullaby. Melissa Gorga will return to defend her marriage, so nothing new there. Jennifer Aydin comes back, committed to her lip liner and tequila. Will this be the year Delores Catania offers more content than agreeing with Teresa? It’s time to find out.
I cannot wait for Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey to return on February 17. Just like the rest of us, the RHONJ cast has been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, some cast members have been behaving more responsibly than others.
In April, Jennifer Aydin announced that she had coronavirus. She later donated 5,000 masks to hospitals in New Jersey and New York. Good for you, Jennifer!
Now that we are 10 whole months in the coronavirus pandemic, we are seeing just how many people it has affected. I feel like everyone has been touched by it in some way.
Coronavirus doesn’t discriminate when it comes to Bravo either. We’ve been reporting on all the stars who have fallen victim to the virus. Shannon Beador and her kids got it, which played out on this season of Real Housewives of Orange County. D’Andra Simmons of Real Housewives of Dallas was recently hospitalized for her experience with the virus. She has since been released and is doing better. Even Bravo Daddy Andy Cohen fought the virus in the early days of the pandemic hitting.
Real Housewives of New Jersey “OG” Teresa Giudice is living her best life right now. She split from long-time husband Joe Giudice after his pesky deportation to Italy. Before that, Teresa stood by her man through infidelity rumors and a stint
in jail at camp.
Teresa and Joe’s divorce was mostly completed in September, but the RHONJ stars are waiting for a court date to finalize the paperwork. Now Teresa has a new man, and she made it Instagram official.
Other than bringing out the green-eyed monster in Teresa Giudice, what does Melissa Gorga bring to Real Housewives of New Jersey? Oh, right, a fake baby storyline, a fake sister storyline, a fake restaurant, and is there anything else I’m forgetting? Oh, yeah, the constant Envy shout outs and that time she advocated for marital rape.
Well, she does bring Joe Gorga’s comedic relief (and occasionally offensive remarks), but what storyline does she actually have? That’s what her former RHONJ nemesis Jacqueline Laurita wants to know.
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.
Someone calling Ramona Singer “rude” isn’t shocking news at this point. Her Real Housewives of New York co-stars have called her out for her behavior so many times. She kicked Gizelle Bryant out of a photo. Margaret Josephs said she wasn’t nice to fans. The list goes on and on. Dolores Catania has made similar comments.
Now, Real Housewives of New York alum Kristen Taekman is claiming that Ramona was so out of hand that they started to run out of locations to film the show.
