Jennifer had no qualms about going on a second girls’ trip, much to conservative husband Bill Aydin’s dismay. The Cabo trip will go down as being the most infamous in RHONJ history. Margaret likened Jennifer’s plump and pouty lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” At dinner one night, Margaret threw wine at Danielle Staub after Danielle cackled about how Margaret’s children are not in her life. Danielle flung a glass at Margaret, hitting Melissa Gorga’s leg. Finally, when Melissa accused Jennifer of throwing the glass, Jennifer smashed a glass on the table and brandished it at Melissa.
Recently, rumors swirled on Twitter about Jackie’s status on the show. Some tweeters claimed that Jackie got fired. I find it tough to believe that anyone got fired from the show. Season 9 is the best RHONJ season in years. Why would they switch it up by firing one of the full-time cast members? Not only that, but Jackie is the only one who is completely comfortable calling outTeresafor camera time on her hypocrisies. That warrants a callback, right?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Cabo trip was everything I wanted and more. There was high humidity and high drama. Margaret Josephs told Jennifer Aydin that her lip liner reminded her of “a monkey’s asshole.” Then, she upped the ante by declaring that Jennifer’s husband sleeps in the pool house and in his girlfriend’s bed. As the viewers know, she took this back immediately, but Jennifer’s reaction gave us some great drama.
Later, Danielle Staub had the nerve to tell Margaret that her kids don’t want to be around her. That’s something Marty Caffrey’s kids could relate to, Danielle. Then, The Marge retaliated by picking up Dolores Catania’s glass of red wine and dumping it on her. Somehow, this all lead to Jennifer smashing a glass and coming at Melissa Gorga with a makeshift shank. So much for this being a fun, booze-filled trip after months of Teresa Giudice’sfitness competition dieting.
Had you been waiting with bated breath like me for last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey? All week I pondered who would prevail in the battle of Envy by Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin’s tacky Chanel. Frankly, I wouldn’t put my money on either of them to throw down after Margaret Josephs doused Danielle Staub with Dolores Catania’s wine, but crazier things have happened in Cabo! Also, I appreciate the RHONJ’s producers for giving us a “to be continued” episode last week. What’s that old saying? People in garish houses shouldn’t throw glass? Jennifer gets in Melissa’s face, and Melissa quickly retreats. Dolores steps in to intimidate Jennifer, and Danielle intervenes. No matter how much Danielle hates Dolores, she respects her ability to beat Jennifer’s monkey’s ass lip liner.
Dolores takes a walk to cool off. Margaret confides in Jackie Goldschneider about how disappointed she is in Teresa Giudice’s behavior. She thought they were friends. Why is Teresa condoning Danielle (and subsequently Jennifer’s) abhorrent behavior? Teresa chases down Melissa who is disgusted by her sister-in-law’s loyalty. Dolores approaches to second Melissa’s assertions. Tre is peeved by their statements while Melissa and Dolores find Jackie and Margaret to share what escalated. At the bar, Teresa, Jennifer, and Danielle defend their actions. At least Teresa tries to show Jennifer the error of her ways…sort of.
The bad news is that Real Housewives of New Jersey is coming to an end. Can you believe that tonight is the second to last episode of the season!? The good news is that Season 9 really blessed us with so many iconic moments. They really got cast right this time around!
Speaking of cast members, even though she’s not a full-time Housewife, Danielle Staub is at the center of the drama. Again. Now, Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs have tension because of Teresa’s (strangely) unwavering loyalty toward Danielle. Those “prostitution whore” days are long gone. That’s for sure!
Teresa Giudice has given Real Housewives of New Jersey fans so many iconic reunion moments. In Season 2 she infamously threw host Andy Cohen like a rag doll. In Seasons 3-5 she faced off against all of her costars completely isolated with no allies. Also, who could possibly forget her tearful Season 6 send-off moment. Teresa became emotional telling Andy and the rest of the cast that it might be her last reunion because she was “going away”.
It’s been an epic season, and the reunion is shaping up to be explosive. Jersey OG Teresa had issues with Melissa Gorga, Jackie Goldschneider, and more recently Margaret Josephs. The longer the season rages on, the more the old Teresa starts to show. Namaste Teresa may be a thing of the past come reunion time. Luckily for fans, Margaret and Andy are giving some insight on Teresa and her reunion behavior.
Seriously, what could go wrong? (Ask any of the RHOC ladies…) Unfortunately for Margaret Josephs, she has managed to parlay her feud with Danielle Staub into a threesome of threats with Danielle’s new bestie Jennifer Aydin thanks in big part to necklace-gate. After one too many heated dinners, she even memorializes the demise of her friendships with a toast–right into Danielle’s face. It’s this season’s birthday cake…or table. Take your pick! Oh, and did I mention the camels? The exotic creatures are right at home hanging out with a monkey’s a$$hole.
Margaret had a lovely necklace made for Teresa Giudice with the word “strong” on it to celebrate Teresa’s participation in the fitness competition. Margaret checked with all the RHONJladies, and they agreed to chip in. But then, when Teresa opened the gift at a dinner in Cabo, “cocktail queen” Jennifer took a big swig of tequila and called the necklace “ugly.”
