The filming for Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is underway! So far we know that Jackie Goldschneider has had at least SOME drama with Teresa Giudice. Jackie has unfollowed Tre on insta, and is notably absent from some cast trip photos. Ever-thirsty Danielle Staub has also been in the news lately for all kinds of batshit shenanigans. My favorite is her claiming Teresa lived in a trailer during Season 1. Honestly, I bet it was the worst decorated trailer on the block.
Even more bold, Danielle is saying that her meal ticket, Andy Cohen used her to become friends with Kelly Ripa. Yea. I’m so sure. Why don’t you just sit this one out Danielle and leave the RHONJ media machine to the professionals. Kelly has some important casting questions for Andy, and I need answers.
Other than Jennifer Aydin offending Melissa Gorga and
her cronies Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldscnheider constantly, the most recent Real Housewives of New Jersey cast gets along pretty well. Without Danielle Staub’s hair-pulling antics, we are left with a pretty harmonious cast… which makes for boring TV.
They have to be adding someone else to the group, right? Nothing has been officially confirmed, but there are rumors floating around on social media along with some photo evidence.
For the most part, the Housewives keep the feuding to their own casts, but every once in a while there are some heated battles between Housewives from different shows. For instance, NeNe Leakes has shared some choice words for Lisa Vanderpump. Brandi Glanville had a years-long legal battle with Joanna Krupa… and some other drama with Kenya Moore. Brandi also had some heated exchanges with Tamra Judge on social media… so maybe Brandi is a common thread in these occurrences.
But, for the most part, the Real Housewives crossovers are usually pretty harmless and entertaining. Well, except for when Bethenny Frankel critiqued the production value of Erika Jayne’s music video when she has no insight on the music industry. But, they seemed to move past that one. What would it be like if Erika made an appearance on another Real Housewives show? Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jackie Goldschneider recently admitted that thought made her feel “a little scared.”
It feels like forever since Real Housewives of New Jersey has been on my screen. But if I’m being truthful, I felt like last season was kind of lackluster. Yes, Joe Giudice ran out of appeals and had to go back to Italy. This was a central point of the show, ending the season with Teresa Giudice and the girls visiting.
But deportation aside, not much happened really. Jennifer Aydin was her usual extra self. And that meant that we spent the majority of the season reviewing her fight with Jackie Goldschneider over a damn pizza party. Sorry if I’m not impressed by that story line. Nor am I impressed by the revelation that Jennifer got plastic surgery. She’s married to a surgeon, she has five kids. I would be doing the same. Also, she looks amazing either way. But speaking of surgery….
The coronavirus pandemic disrupted life in very visible ways. Schools were closed, non-essential employees worked from home, and Netflix became a whole lot more popular. What was not apparent at first was how the lockdown would affect our guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. Specifically, of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Cutting filming and production will create a lag time between the most recent season and the next.
Back in March, filming for Season 11 was cut short amid fears for the health of cast and crew. At that point, RHONJ was only a few episodes in before production was shut down. The Garden State has seemingly gained control of the coronavirus. As a result, the network has released a tentative timeline to resume filming.
She may float like a butterfly but she sure stings like a bitch! Leah McSweeney has been, I dare say, a perfect addition to this season of The Real Housewives of New York City.
So far, the RHONY newbie seems to have hit it off with each of her fellow ‘Wives. She’s chucked tiki torches in the Hamptons, exposed the ladies to the Russian Bathhouse, stuck up for Tinsley Mortimer and called out everything from white supremacy to Sonja Morgan‘s unending delusions. However, it appears Leah‘s budding friendship with Ramona Singer hits the rocks during the cast trip to Newport, R.I. due to her drinking. Ahead of the episode, she took to social media to address the OG’s issues with her and trust me, it’s a takedown of epic proportions.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is underway and so far, so good! In case you missed it, this season welcomed both Garcelle Beauvais as a housewife and Sutton Stracke as a friend of. I have high hopes for Garcelle but I am absolutely LIVING for Sutton this year. She was just as uninterested in Kyle Richards‘ “fashion” and Teddi Mellencamp‘s pregnancy as I was in the premiere episode of the season. Since then, she’s only gotten better.
In episode 3 Sutton went so far as to tell Teddi to her face what we have all been thinking. She is boring and pregnancy isn’t her area of interest. Yea, yea, yea, she followed it up with saying she now finds Teddi interesting, but not until after Teddi left the table to sob. Bless this Southern belle in couture mess. She has been an absolute joy to watch and she’s finally sharing her reaction to seeing herself on the show.
We’re only three episodes into Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the new “friend of the housewives” Sutton Stracken has certainly already made her mark. Some people say she’s ruffling feathers. Some say she’s made a splash. I say she’s been more like a freaking earthquake. We finally have a housewife in Beverly Hills who has even less of a filter than Lisa Rinna. I don’t think the ladies quite know how to handle it.
While I’ve never had to watch myself on TV before, I imagine it would involve a lot of cringing and regrets. That seems to be the case for Sutton, who has been watching the series from her mansion in LA. While the Internet has already dubbed Sutton as a “mean girl,” she’s insisting that this is not the case.
