Last night was the second installment of
The Teresa Show Real Housewives of New Jersey. Before Teresa Giudice can throw Andy Cohen’s cue cards at Jackie Goldschneider, Jackie reminds Teresa that she is on parole. The women shriek back and forth about which one is more obsessed with the other. When Andy is finally able to get in a word, he questions Jackie about the article she wrote about Jennifer Aydin’s kids. Not surprisingly, this causes Jennifer to transform into a banshee who demands THE TRUTH! Jackie tries to defend herself but admits that she should have given Jennifer a head’s up before it was published. A viewer calls the article complimentary and wonders if Jennifer even read it. Jennifer did read it, and she didn’t appreciate the critique of her parenting. That said, had she known it was coming, she wouldn’t have been as angry.
A fan questions why it’s okay for Dolores Catania to speak for Teresa, but it’s not okay when Jackie sticks up for Melissa Gorga. Dolores clarifies that she is just trying to share Teresa’s viewpoint in a quieter different way. Regarding the entire “control your husband” conversation, Teresa changes her tune and asserts that she only meant Melissa could persuade Joe Gorga to spend more time with Nonno.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is tonight. Will we unearth some major revelations? Probably not. Most likely, Andy Cohen is saving those Joe Giudice deportation questions until the final reunion installment.
Instead, Joe Gorga joins the Housewives to watch his wife Melissa Gorga fight with his sister Teresa Giudice. Maybe this will include the moment from the reunion trailer when Joe asked Teresa if she’s using a vibrator. You know, just a normal sibling moment.
The reunion for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 has just begun airing, and the drama shows no sign of slowing down. Not only that, but it looked like a glitter factory exploded in that room. The gowns and spray tans, were over the top. Teresa Giudice, the OG of RHONJ, was in a fiery mood, and she wasted no time in blasting newbie Jackie Goldschneider for being “a stalker.” Otherwise known as a fan. A photo together from a book signing? Run for the hills, Teresa!
Teresa also jabbed Jackie about her eating disorder by asking if Jackie had something to eat before the reunion. Then Jennifer Aydin hopped in to clarify that Teresa meant to say “thirsty.” And Dolores Catania, loyal soldier that she is, was not a fan of the way Jackie questions Teresa about how Teresa feels about her fans. Of course, Jennifer is still livid about the article that Jackie wrote about her palatial home and whether Jennifer spoils her children. (Spoiler alert: she does). Jennifer even gifted Jackie with a Turkish dagger to stab her in the back.
Yesterday had to be such an awkward day for Melissa Gorga to do press. Of course, promoting a show about arguing with family and friends has to be uncomfortable in general. Not only that, but those photos of Teresa Giudice holding hands with a 26-year-old random just hit the internet.
Obviously, Melissa and Teresa are not on the best terms these days. Nevertheless, that is such a tough conversation topic. In not-at-all-surprising news, Andy Cohen opened with that topic during yesterday’s Watch What Happens Live.
I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa Gorga Olympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws
tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.
Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.
No one is at all surprised by the seating arrangement at the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Reunion. Teresa Giudice is sitting with
her soldiers Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin. On the opposite couch, Margaret Josephs is joined by Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider, duh.
However, Melissa had to be
jealous at least a little surprised that Margaret got the seat next to Andy Cohen. Then again, Melissa doesn’t have as many battles to fight this season. Margaret had it out with Jennifer, Teresa, and Danielle Staub, who will not appear on Part 1. Meanwhile, Melissa promoted her own store and took a genetic test to match with a “sister” that does not actually exist may or may not exist.
It was the splash heard all over New Jersey when Margaret Josephs and her husband, Joe Benigno, shoved Danielle Staub’s soon-to-be ex-husband Marty Caffrey in Jennifer Aydin’s pool. The bash to celebrate Jennifer and Bill Aydin’s sixteenth anniversary was featured on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 finale. At least Bill didn’t spend all his time hiding in his pool-house.
Jennifer requested that the ladies wear red, and when Marty insulted Margaret’s appearance, Joe B. sure was seeing red. It wasn’t the first time that Marty slammed Margaret’s looks. At Milania Giudice’s listening party, Marty said that Margaret wouldn’t want to be in a room with Danielle because no one would be able to take their eyes off Danielle.
I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems like it has gone by so quickly, but in some ways, it’s been quite a long, drama-fueled road that culminated in the ladies seeing red at Jennifer Aydin’s anniversary party celebrating sixteen years with Dr. Poolhouse. Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub are perusing scarlet ball gowns while discussing Margaret Joseph’s gala. Danielle gets in a requisite amount of digs while questioning whether she’ll be well received at the party. Teresa reveals that she doesn’t have an issue with Margaret and sees no reason not to be her friend. Danielle bristles, questioning whether Teresa will have her back if someone comes for her at the event. Of course, Tre is nothing if not loyal. It was hard to even type that with a straight face!
Jackie Goldschneider takes her mother for a makeover, but her mom explains that her physical appearance has never had an impact on her self-esteem. Jackie believes her mother has felt she had to be frumpy to be taken seriously as a business woman. She compares that fear of finding beauty with her reconciliation with her sister after a fifteen year estrangement. I’m not sure what one has to do with the other, but her mother’s hair and make-up looks nice.
