The Real Housewives of New Jersey is nearing the end of a truly epic Season 13. We saw a single Teresa Giudice for the first time, who wasn’t afraid to flirt with her pool boy, drink too much pineapple juice and show off her “soulmate” Luis Ruelas. Sure, she was guilty of spreading rumors about Evan Goldschneider cheating on Jackie Goldschneider. And she’s pushed the buttons of Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga, but when doesn’t she? Tre is an all-star and literally pioneer of reality TV ever since her table flip heard around the world.
Season 13 is the third-straight RHONJ season with the same cast. We have Tre, Melissa, Jackie, Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania. And they’ve all had iconic moments in their own way this season. Jennifer getting “sloppy” drunk at a pool party. Marge’s cold brew in a wine glass. Dolores going Patterson style on Joey Gorga after he questions her independence. Jackie’s tragic weave and periodic meltdowns. Even MelGo, who is known for faking storylines, flipped a cheese plate. It’s the stuff trash TV dreams are made of.
Whew. The analogy Jackie Goldschenider made about Gia Guidice is still causing drama on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It was the most ill advised comment Jackie’s ever made on the show. What made her think it was a sensible idea to compare the cheating rumors about Evan Goldschneider to Gia possibly snorting cocaine? HOW DO YOU GO FROM THAT TO THAT? Do you even know who her mother is? We’re talking about Teresa Giudice.
We know that Gia was actually the first one to reach out following this mess. It’s crazy how the young girl in all of this is the one who is acting the most grown up. Analogy or not, it was intolerable. No excuse for Jackie going there and dragging children into this. It doesn’t matter how old Gia is, you don’t go there. The real question is WHY Jackie wouldn’t reach out herself to Gia.
Jennifer Aydin is really peeling back the layers on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey We’ve gotten to see her as a daughter, a loyal friend, and a drunk. It has been a far cry from Jennifer’s first season where she spent every episode boasting about her husband’s financial success and bathroom -filled home.
Since her fall out with Jackie Goldschneider over the Evan Goldschneider cheating rumors, Jennifer hasn’t made any more attempts to host play dates combining their fleets of children. Instead, she’s opted for the route of hosting mother-daughter tea parties. The gathering of the mothers and the Housewives took place over the most recent two episodes of the show. During the event, Jackie didn’t miss the opportunity to fire a shot at the mega-home of Jennifer and Bill Aydin. She joked, “Welcome to the Taj Mahal. If the Taj Mahal had a huge mortgage — and no furniture.” Oof.
What was more awkward to watch? Evan Goldschneider’s first birthday party where Teresa Giudice went around to everyone in the parking lot spreading rumors that he “does stuff at the gym” or the second party when Jackie Goldschneider greeted each guest with “tell Evan you know he doesn’t cheat.”
As a viewer at home, I couldn’t help cringing on my couch as I watched both parties. It was the storyline that just never stopped and will (unfortunately) dominate the reunion episodes as well. I just want to know who “from the group” told Teresa about these rumors. I have my guesses though…
This season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey truly has not disappointed one bit. We’ve had Jennifer Aydin’s iconic pool party drunk moment. Teresa Giudice is hornier than ever and is with a new man. Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga are “fighting” which may or may not be another ploy at a fake storyline. And there have been nasty feuds everywhere, from Jennifer vs. Margaret Josephs to Tre vs. Jackie Goldschneider.
The season kicked off with a bang after Tre was spreading rumors at Evan Goldschneider’s own birthday party that he cheats on Jackie. This made the Jackie bomb go off that left her and her tragic weave in shambles. She could not stop bringing up Teresa’s nasty gossip every chance she got, even after proclaiming she was “over it.” And who could forget when she confronted Teresa and made the “worst analogy ever” involving Gia Giudice doing cocaine at parties.
This has been an interesting season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. There haven’t been any sightings of Danielle Staub, yet Danielle is staying up to date on all the drama. What a shock.
During the Season 11 premiere, Jackie Goldschneider threw a party for her husband, Evan Goldschneider’s, birthday. While RHONJ co-star Teresa Giudice was busy spreading the rumor that Evan was cheating, newbie Michelle Pais spilled some tea of her own. She told Jennifer Aydin that Joe Gorga owed “tens of thousands of dollars” to her husband, Jon Steingraber.
After a wild trip to the Jersey Shore, what’s in store for The Real Housewives of New Jersey? This group fights so hard, but at the end of the day, they’re usually able to come together. The trip saw so many rocky moments, but it also saw some much needed closure. It was relieving to see Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider finally put their issue to rest. It was a dark cloud hanging over the group and the season, and we can finally move past it.
One feud that grew larger on the trip was Jennifer Aydin & Margaret Josephs. They are different in ever conceivable way. They have nothing in common, and if you put the two of them together, something is bound to happen. Teresa’s supposed to be arranging for everyone to meet with a psychic, and it can’t come fast enough. It would be perfect if the psychic could use her powers to keep Jennifer & Margaret from hitting each other with low blows.
I love the husbands on Real Housewives of New Jersey. This season, what happened at guys’ night didn’t stay at guys’ night, which means more drama for RHONJ viewers! When the guys met for poker, Margaret Josephs’ husband, Joe Benigno, admitted that he had also heard that Evan Goldschneider was cheating.
Unfortunately, Bill Aydin carried the news back to his wife, Jennifer Aydin. And on the ride to the Jersey Shore, Jennifer shared it with Dolores Catania, her ex-husband, Frank Catania, and Teresa Giudice.
